Going from a partially finished basement with well-established hobby area to a ready-to-finish basement (read: unfinished) was daunting. I had packed something like 25 boxes of hobby stuff (medium moving boxes) and there was really no good start to putting things away. I ended up buying a bunch of plastic shelves and unloading the boxes onto them. It looked so nice when we moved in, but quickly became a hoarding nightmare.

So as a small I decided to create a 40k Kill Team. I got the box set and expansions, and my son and nephew (and hopefully my brother-in-law) are going to play. I chose Heretic Astartes, and started a list consisting of 5 CSM's and 6 cultists. Two CSM's are painted now, and I'm slowly putting colors on the cultists. Interestingly, I found myself assembly-line painting the cultists, but the marines each get converted and painted individually.

Now if someone came up with a list that heavily included grots and used this guy for his leader, I would find that amusing and worth playing against. I have this model and he's awesome.
For the record, my leader is the beefiest dude on my team with the best gear, the Aspiring Champion of Chaos. I have as hard a time imagining Astartes following some wretched mortal as I do a bunch of Orks following a grot.
