So a couple of weeks ago I posted a list of resolutions here. In the article that I would reduce my armies to Black Templar, Eldar, and Chaos Space Marines Slaaneesh armies. I wrote that with every intention of following that resolution. The problem I have is that not only did I have an old project that was out of sight it was out of mind.
So many moons ago I started this SoB army for a Cities of Death build up we were doing at the FLGS. I really enjoyed the army at the time but when 5th Edition came out I was not really happy with the way it played with the new rules. It had a lot to do with the way my army was constructed and not as much about what the army was capable of. If I remember correctly I had also been painting on it to prepare for a Rogue Trader tournament that was coming up. I found out I was not going to be able to attend the tournament. So I tabled the army and worked on something else.
Fast forward to two weeks ago I am writing a list of hobby resolutions. I thought in my head about the armies I really enjoyed playing and working on and the army I had not touched in several years was forgotten. So I made a list and my SoBs where left off.
So now I have a decision to make. Do I honor my resolution as written and sell/trade away my SoB army? Do I re-nig on that and keep the army? Perhaps I swap that army for one of the armies that are on the list?
Its a tough decision to make. I really enjoyed working on this army when I was doing so. I have considered re-starting that work several times in the past but never really wanted to make the changes I think I would have needed to make to have an army that worked well in the current game. With those thoughts though the only thing I have done with this army in the past 4 or more years is paint the Cannoness. I could hold out and see what comes of a new codex if they get one.
