Why Allies are Awesome for Everyone!!

So, once again, the entire 40K blogosphere is on fire about something that has yet to pass. This time it is the new Allies rules included in 6th edition. Personally I think allies rules are awesome and they offer something to every type of gamer.

For those who lean towards the competitive side, Allies offer many ways of making very powerful combinations (though not as many as the blogosphere would have you believe; lots of people don't know the rules for armies they don't play :D). Those players can min/max to their hearts content. For those that love painting and modelling Allies allow many unique and interesting conversions, combined force paint-schemes, crazy counts-as, etc. Even those that favor the story more than anything now have tools to recreate their favorite historical alliances. Allies offer something to everyone.

Personally, I'll be waiting to see what national and local tournaments decide to do with Allies. If they are in, then my dirty Necrons will definitely be getting some rusty Grey Knight buddies (modeled off of FW MKII armour types). As with all the other changes, I think everyone needs to calm down and wait to have the new rulebook in their hands before making any sweeping generalizations or declarations (note that I realize I just did this, haha).

I personally guarantee Allies will be at least this fun.

The Warriors are always muckin' about...

Down the home stretch with this army, only three Destroyers and two Scythes left! I converted up these Warriors because I hate there hunched-up squatting pose and their stupid green plastic guns! So I cut them at the hip and knee to reposition them and converted their Flayers with bits from the Immortals kit, woohoo.

Vargard Hotah, the Sunspear

Made this second Overlord. He'll eventually get a Command Barge of his own. I gave him a gold head to differentiate him from his brother. He also has the resin Overlords Warscythe, as I hate that model, but got it in a trade.
