750 Points Dark AngelsHQ
Company Master, Power Sword, Plasma Pistol 
Dreadnought w/extra armor, Hvy Flamer 
Tactical Squad Repentance
10 Marines, Pwr Fist, Plasma Pistol, Plasma Gun, Plasma Cannon 
Combat Squad Oath-Keeper
5 Marines, Pwr Sword, Plasma Pistol, Plasma Gun 
Razorback, TL Lascannons, extra armor 
|They're comin' for ya!|
And there ya have it! Now I can set up the Escalation campaign with my Word Bearers and grow these armies at the same time. My game group also pushed the due date for our League's first 750 to the end of August- whew! After this paint frenzy in July, I wasn't sure I could make it through August. Now I can breathe... :-)
Let me know what y'all are working on out there, I'd like to see some cool projects and stay this inspired. If you're not currently hobbying on anything, maybe these last few posts can get ya pumped?
Thanks for checking it all out and I'll continue to post progress and plans for my Escalation League. In the meantime, Happy Hobbying!
