So I've recently rejoined the Warma/Hordes world, I picked up a pretty good chunk of Menoth back in MK1 days a few years ago and am getting it all put together and painted. So I've been trolling the forums and reading the Canon of True Law (uber helpful btw) Anyway to the point. I need to pick up a heavy or two.
Right now I'm happy with all my other unit types but for heavy jacks I only have a crusader and castigator (I loved the fluff and apparently they were a lot better in MK1 I think) So after all my trolling I'm thinking I need to pick up a Avatar, a Reckoner and a Heavy Kit. I also really want to try out the blood of Martyrs
So my Dilemma is trying to figure out a priority of what to buy and I really don't want to spend more than like a $100. So since apparently there is a new plastic kit coming out with the Reckoner I am leaning towards skipping it for now and just getting that avatar and Crusader/Kit which I plan on magnetizing.
Has anyone tried to use the blood of martyrs as just a weapon swap with the heavy kit? The weapons are really obviously different so I don't think it should cause any real confusion and it looks like the only thing extra are the back banners, just wondering if that's a possibility.
Last question as far as troops right now I have full TFG+UA, Full Zealots+UA and Knights Exemplar. I am gonna wait for plastic errants which seems like the most obvious next purchase there but what is the boards feelings on daughters? I really wanna try a Thyra list with them and blood of martyrs.
Last thing any amazing mercs I should pick up? I'm thinking about the alchemist because he looks awesome, and I know piper used to be almost required in MK1 Menoth. Also i was thinking about painting my mercs in Menoth colors since in my head if they didn't convert they would get torched like everyone else.
Sorry for all the questions and rantyness of this all. Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated.
