My 2013 Army in a Weekend: Minotaurs Chapter Space Marines

Some of you may be wondering what I mean by Army in a Weekend. A local game store named Art of War, every year, does an event called Army in a Weekend. You order an army -- has to be a complete army -- from any system. You get 25% off and have to pay it off by the end of November. Then they make a bulk order and you can pick up the order mid December. They stay open for the entire weekend, the idea being everyone hangs out at the store and builds then paints their army. 24 hours a day from Friday to Sunday.

Unfortunately, I do not have the pull with my wife to be able to hang there and do that. If I was single I would! Anyway, so I chose to do Space Marines for this year. (Last year I did Trollbloods from Hordes) So I ordered the Strikeforce box set, 2 Rhinos, a box of Assault Terminators, and a Devestator Squad box. If my finances allow it I will add a second Devastator Squad box and a Tac Squad box to even those two out to 10 models. Then I just have to go to Forgeworld and buy the Minotaurs chapter upgrade pack along with Asterion Moloch... because unfortunately, you don't get the Preferred Enemy: Space Marines without him in your army. On top of that, with the forthcoming Codex: Inquisition, it looks like it will be fun.
