The Breacher unit, a project started back in august last year, is finally finished. About bloody time too as i've very nearly shelved them a couple of times during the build and painting, for 2 reasons -
- Game wise, Breachers are over pointed and not as useful as most other 30k squads. For example, my 10 man Breacher unit is 10 points more expensive than a 20 man Legion Tactical squad, and not quite as survivable, even with the shields.
- Secondly, i've never liked painting things with shields - they always have a tendency to get in the way if you glue them on before painting, or as I found with the Breachers, are a pain to glue on when you've finished painting them.
Don't get me wrong, now i've finished them I think they look ace, but can't see me using them that often.
I've got the second half of the big Cataphractii unit in front of me now begging for paint - they've had some basecoats and chipping applied, a few more basecoats then they'll be ready for washing. I'll look at getting a pic or two for the next post.
