I started working on my Aurora Chapter army, getting a Tactical Squad put together. I'm beginning with a Space Marine battleforce, a Predator and a SM Commander's kit and then go from there. This army is made up of what I had laying around the house after the spring clean up in my work area. I could not believe all of the unused kits that I had.
I think this time around, I'll get the first part of the army built and start playing (painting as I go). While I detest playing with an unpainted army, if I wait until all my models were painted, I'd never get beyond a combat patrol list. My goal here is to get back into gaming as quickly as possible. The first phase of the list will be something like this:
10-man Tac Squad
5-man Tac Squad
5-man Assault Squad
5-man Scout Squad
I'll work out the details and best weapons load outs as I go along. The upside is the work week has started and that's when I get most of my modeling/painting done. I use that as way to maintain my sanity as I battle through the everyday labors of life.
