Brotherhood Update: Scouts and more Troops

I'm continuing to add to the Brotherhood, with the idea I'll be able to test and play practically every major build in the book... then I'll start on the units for the Brotherhood Shrikers or the Brotherhood Assault Angels or something.

(I'm missing models...)
Yea, I'm going to be that guy. Screw it - GW is an expensive addiction these days!  Plus I'm having a blast putting together these units.  A basic theme of the Brotherhood is they're a collection of Warbands, so each unit is supposed to be unique.  I'm representing that with themes throughout a squad, as seen here:

Each model has a sword and a Templar's shoulder pad, as well as numerous not-so-obvious similarities.  I used up the individual helmets I had then used Scout heads for the remainder.  Note these obviously aren't Power Swords - I'm going to paint them an iron color.

I played the Card Pimp in Question yesterday and this morning discovered most of one of my Scout Squads is missing.  I'm sure either he or the Mighty Mighty Carlos picked them up for me, but here's the pictures...

...if you just happen to see them...

Chapter house heads on some of those? Very nice. Drop me a line Brent. I've sent email...

I love the look of this army. Each squad is unique and easy to tell apart on the battlefield, which is often a problem with many armies. The themed squads are really a brilliant idea. I'm really looking forward to seeing more.

I am particularly fond of all three plasma gunners in these photos. The scout is ace, and the under-slung style is just fab -original, cool. Love it.

SinSynn said...

I would so love this army more if it wasn't another Space Wolf 'counts-as.'

Love ya Brent...just sayin.'

Models are looking great, but I won't go into my beef with counts as.

Breeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeent! I'm missing your Tuesday article on BoLS! It's one of the most exciting things about Tuesday. Honestly, also one of the most exciting things about BoLS (and I like BoLS on the whole!)

Well, I look forward to your article on whatever day it arrives.

Brent said...

I appreciate that Drew - I really do! I asked Larry to postpone my article by one day...

...'cause I was zoned yesterday! Really tired.

But it'll be there tomorrow. :)

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
