I figured this is a good place for my to keep my thoughts about all my tabletop adventures. I will will keep thoughts about lists, pics of completed models and WIP, and maybe even some slimmed down battle reports.

Expanding the Skitarii to Adeptus Mechanicus
As my Skitarii Army is coming closer to being finished I have taken a look at what I have and what is left to collect. I have also been playing around with the idea of adding in some Cult Mechanicus to make it a true Adeptus Mechanicus army. In particular I am looking at the Elimination Maniple.
With this Formation I will add some heavier armored units that pack a punch. The Destroyers will give me the much dreaded Grav-cannons will the Robots will give me the multi-shot AP3 weapons. I think this will be a nice addition to my army and help take some pressure off my Skitarii troops as they try to walk across the board.
I also think that these will take the place of the ironstriders. While I like the idea of the Dragoons I just don't see them doing much damage without AP2 weapons in CC. The Balistari could help out out with some lascannon goodness I think the kit is pretty expensive and the role can be filled by other units. I will probably add these in eventually but not until the core of the army is complete.
So I have updated the Road to Skitarii List on the site to reflect this new change. I lowballed an auction early on not expecting to win but for some reason no one else bid on it. So my Robots are on the way. I am pretty excited to get these Robbie the robot look-a-likes. I am eager to finish up the army and get some games in with them next year. Until then...
