I’ve been agonising how to start this post of what is essentially a draft from mid-June, when I was working on my second squad of Word Bearers. They began as a run-of-the-mill Troops choice before turning into one of those squads that you can’t seem to make any headway with, no matter how many hours you spend on them.
They form a second squad of five, including a plasma-gunner and a champ with plasma pistol and power axe. I haven’t had a game with my Word Bearers as of yet so I’m not 100% sure just how viable this will be in the current edition, though I have run similar loadouts with my old Space Marines back in the day.
There’s not a great deal else to say about these guys. Painting CSM armour is good fun as there are tend to be many cool details such as faces appearing in the plate, fangs and claws running along the shoulder pads, or something as simple and varied as their ornate backpacks. In game terms I would run these guys to compliment my cultist horde, by having them jump in the Rhino and going after enemy armour with their plasma weaponry.
I’ll wrap it up there, but thanks for reading. Take care.
