Mini of the Month August '11

Postby Dez » Sun Jul 31, 2011 11:29 pm

I was really happy people were interested in a theme that I'd been thinking about for a while...

VETERAN LEADER

The grizzled sergeant of a rag tag Imperial squad, an Ork Nob with visions of one day leading Da Waaagh, The Tactical Squad Sergeant whose resolve never falters. These are the leaders that guide your squad to victory.

This month, make a veteran for your army. It can be a Sergeant, Vanguard Vet, Ork Nob, Whatever Space Elves have. This one is a leader, someone people can look up to.

The only rules are to have fun and be creative, they can be from any system. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Seeing as how for me it is still July I can't enter yet...

But I think I'll join and customize an ork nob... maybe I will buy the nob kit that's the daily deal... then I'd get one week to work on it...

hmm... Tempting

I need the nob box kit I have so many vinalla Nobz it makes me cry, I think I had 14 vinalla nobz... That is a problem isn't it?

But I've got an idea for what I would do I think it's a great idea, but it will involve a warboss and a nob... it will be one bad booty nob... hope I can get it! I really want to participate!

Yes I am so in :mrgreen:
The best part of this comp. is that we have to do this anyway: rumors of 6th edition codex saying each squad needs a squad leader.

Really pumped up for this! :D

Question: does it have to be an actual leader codex wise or can it be a troop that just looks more important than his brothers? Say, a tactical marine taking a leadership role over his other brothers and not the sarge? Or a hormagaunt leading other hormagaunts? Or a gun drone leading the other drones?

Hey Crusher,

As long as it looks like a veteran, you are good to go.

A dwarf bar fight with one dwarf on a table fighting off several. Space marine mid act of bravery. Or best of all a grot gouging his masters eye out while other grots cheer him on.

this is my idea I'm just curious to know what others think... plus i need to type it out so I can getter better idea...

There will be a nob, he's going to be killing the warboss to show the he's the tougher one, and he's goin to lead the next WAAAGH!!!

Thoughts?
if it doesn't really suit the theme... I'm making it anyways cause it will look cool....

You could have the Nob holding the Warboss' severed head!

You don't have to make these useable in your army, even though it's nice to do so. If you want to build a diorama, more power to you!
