2014 Wish List

2014 Wish List


A new year has arrived and so has my new wish list. Last year saw quite a few items purchased from the 2013 list found 'Here' and I intend on following suit for 2014.

The wish list helps me focus on what I really want, it also gives people, (you) the chance to chime in and offer advice on whether my intended purchases are a good or bad choice. That doesn't necessarily mean I will not get the item if it is noted a bad idea, but will help me make informed choices.

So take a look at the wish list and let me know your thoughts!

Wish List

NEED:
  • * Imperial Guard Tank Accessories. 'Take a Look' £9 Need
    • These will be used to upgrade my tank campany.
  • Leman Russ Battle Tank. 'Take a Look' £31 Need
    • I am going to start a small allied army based around tanks, so this will be the start.
  • XV8 Battlesuit Commander. 'Take a Look£25 Need
    • My Tau commander is in need of an upgrade to fit in with the new Codex, and yes I want this model to be it. This will be Shas'o Dal'yth Or'es Shi's, new bit of tech.
  • Chaos Daemon Prince. 'Take a Look' £25 Need
    • So I have come up with a nice little allies list involving Chaos Space Marines, this will be one of my HQ choices for it, Could do with it this year, and I personally think it is one hell of a combat beast if played right .
  • Chaos Space Marine Heldrake. 'Take a Look£45 Need
    • Same reason for the Daemon Prince, this will also come in very handy.
    • Tau Fire Warrior Team. 'Take a look£22 Need
      • I only have 1 Fire Warrior Team in my Tau Army, I need to get another to  effectively play 6th Edition games! More Troops needed.
          • Warhound Titan Mars Pattern Turbo Laser. 'Take a look£38 Need
            • In February 2012 I purchased a 'Mars Pattern Warhound Titan' and later in the year bought a 'Plasma Blastgun', but due to lack of funds I could not get the Turbo Laser, as I plan on finishing the Titan this year I intend to get it, just need the money.
          • * Worcester War III. £TBC Need
            • Campaign Day.


            Desire:
            • XV88 Broadside Battlesuit. 'Take a Look£30 Desire
              • Such an awesome model, I need a second one for my Tau army, they work better in pairs!
            • Bastion Upgrade Pack. 'Take a look£12.30 Desire
              • In 2011 I purchased an 'Imperial Bastion' from ebay really cheap. It was already glued together and was missing the extra bits that comes with the kit and a couple of Heavy Bolters plus the door, so by purchasing the Upgrade Pack I will have a fully functional Bastion. And with Stronghold Assault now in use, I might want to use it.
            • Deathwatch Kill Team Conversion Kit. 'Take a Look£15.50 Desire
              • I really want these, at least one squads worth before they go out of stock. I plan to complete a Sternguard Squad of Deathwatch with every member from a different chapter. Just a little interesting project I thought. Chapter ideas most welcome.
              • X 2 - Grey Knight Interceptor Squads.'Take a look£20.50 each Desire
                • Interceptors are a Fast Attack choice for Grey Knights and I would like to have two 5 man squads to accompany the Nemesis Dreadknight's. Having used proxies for this, it works well and sends a shiver up my opponents spine seeing them jump across the board, very pricey points wise though!
                • X2 - Grey Knight Terminator Squads. 'Take a look£28 per box Desire
                  • I want to convert a Terminator into Grand Master Vord Mordrak and Ghost Knights to go with him (Not going to be cheap) I need Mordrak plus 8 Ghost knight, 5 for his initial squad and 3 spare for if he gets all his rolls, take a look at 'Codex Grey Knights' for more information of his special rule.
                  • The plus side of this is that I also want to make a Paladin Apothecary so I will have a spare model to do this.
                  • Land Raider Crusader Pack. 'Take a look£12.30 Desire
                    • I already have a Landraider (not yet painted) and during the build I magnetised the side sponsons. By getting this kit and adding further magnets I will be able to swap between the standard landraider and a Redeemer. This will also lend it's self to the 'Landraider Terminus Ultra' for apocalypse games. I also have a highly risky tactic for the Redeemer along with the Librarian for my Grey knight army. Who can guess what that might be?
                  • Space Marine Command Squad. 'Take a Look£20.50 Desire
                    • This will accompany my Capitan into battle. enough said really.
                  • Lord Kaldo Draigo. 'Take a Look£15 Need
                    • My current Grand Master 'Found Here' has run his course. My painting has improved a lot lately and I want to revamp him. I intend to convert the Kaldor model thus giving Valius a new suit of armour. I do plan on magnetising it so I can fully swap out all the weapons and also if I ever want to use Kaldor in a game he can be remade. Should be an awesome conversion and paint job and fun to do when I get it. The old model will be turned into Grand Master Mordrak maybe!


                    Wish For:
                    • Magister Severin Loth Chief Librarian of the Red Scorpions with Honour Guard. 'Take a Look£39 Wish for
                      • Again before these go out of stock I want to get him, awesome figure need I say more. But then again I'm not quite sure if the price is worth it?
                    • Paladin Squad. 'Take a look£28 Wish for
                      • In my own opinion, I find Paladins to be too costly to take in any armies under 2.5K, to this end I my original Paladin squad has been transformed back into normal Terminators. However, I would like to make up a command Squad of Paladins to support my Grand Master / Brother Captain for the fun of it and reading the Fluff would be quite fitting. This is something I would like to try even if it is a bit pants on the table top lol.
                      • Imperial Guard Valkyrie. 'Take a Look£41 Wish for
                        • This will be my Xenos Inquisitors air transport. Now officially thanks to Codex Inquisition can use a Valkyrie, and like the idea that he is an Inquisitor and gets whatever he wants.
                      • Valkyrie Transfer Sheet. 'Take a Look£12 Wish for
                        • These will be used to adorn the Inquisitors Valkyrie. An awesome set of Transfers.
                      • Imperial Guard Cadian Kasrkin Squad. 'Take a Look£25.50 Wish for
                        • These guys will for the basis for my Inquisitorial Warband I think, with a couple of extras and some small conversions will fit the part quite well.
                      • Grey Knight Librarian. 'Take a look£15 Wish for
                        • Everyone keeps telling me they are great in 6th Edition and I have written a list that uses one, so its time to get it. And if I paint it the right way I will be able to use it in Grey Knight or Space marine army.
