As I've only painted minis worth 1,850 pts. so far I had to think about the choice of unit(s) for the next step to 2,000 pts. And with the 3rd Sturmfront on October 3rd drawing nearer and nearer, I decided to take a squad of 5 Vanguard Veterans.
As there are only a few models to paint due to their costs and their expensive equipment, they make up a perfect choice for me because I've not that much time right now for painting IW unfortunately (there are other more important projects at the moment, e.g. tournament terrain, a display base, Chaos Daemons etc.).
I even built a melta bomb myself because I have no SM bitz box here at my parents' house.
Now I must hope to receive the jump packs until saturday and paint the 5 minis and I'm ready for the 2,000 pts. battles on Monday.
