I finished up the objective counters for Adepticon for our Blood Angels. I like to do 5 because that tends to be the max you'll see in most games. I think a good looking objective really adds to the game. Here's the finished product!
I took advantage of the marine casualty pack. For the banner bearer, it was an easy arm swap. I had plenty of extra banners from the Sanguinary Guard. I didn't go the original route though, painted it very similar to my Sanguinary Guard banner. I also didn't like the hurt marine that was long dead... figured why would anyone fight over a dead marine. That was an easy head swap.
For the fourth and fifth objective I struggled with what to do, so I went to my bitz box. I thought the inquisitor "Book of Knowledge" might be something worth going after. Finally I grabbed one of the Blood Bowl trophies as well as an arcane candle thing. Maybe it's a chaos shrine full of blood... or my chapter going towards the dark side.
All of the bases were from Scibor Miniatures. I don't like the fact that they sculpted plants on the base. Painted plants just don't seem to mesh well. I guess if I was overly concerned, I could have chopped them out; laziness won over!
Here are the shots of the completed and based assault squads. For the guys on foot, I magnetized their backpacks so I can swap up with jump packs. It remains to be seen if I can go through a tournament without losing any.
Right now I'm working on the Nob Bikers for the gladiator list, and a Librarian with a magnatized jump pack for the Adepticon team tournament. I ultimately decided against the Sanguinator for the team list and for a little more utility of the librarian. More updates tomorrow!
