1/28/12: For Sale: 2k Winter Tau Empire Army and 4.4k Imperial Guard “The Granex 25th:

Hey guys!

So over the last couple of months, my Chaos Marines have taken over my 40k playtime. I’ve played my IG and my Tau a little bit since then, but for the most part, the Alpha Legion have been taking the spotlight. This being said, I’m hoping to sell the two armies off sometime in the near future and, dear reader, I’m offering them up to you first.

1) 2000 Point Winter Tau Empire Army

With the new codex rumored to come out this year, this army would be an excellent place to start your new Tau Empire army.


The list comes out to 2039 points, and includes:
  • 1 Ethereal with Honour Blade
  • FW Crisis Suit Commander with Magnetized Weapons
  • 8 Crisis Suits: 5 with PR/MP, 3 with TL Fusion.
  • 3 Stealth Suits with Marker Drone
  • 24 Fire Warriors: 1 squad is in a Devilfish
  • 12 Kroot Carnivores
  • 5 Pathfinders with a Devilfish
  • Piranha armed with a Fusion Blaster
  • Hammerhead Gunship

Also included is 1 standard GW Case with Foam, which holds everything but the vehicles, and the current Tau Empire codex with a little wear.

This is a partial army shot, but allows you to get an idea for the army. I’m asking $1300 obo for this army.

#2: 4400 Point Imperial Guard “The Granex 25th”

My pride and joy. The army that got me into 40k initially. I’ve gotten numerous compliments and praise for
this army, and have spent countless hours perfecting my painting style using this army.

  • 1 Baneblade Super-heavy Tank with 1 Set of Sponsons.
The army also includes the Imperial Guard Codex (lots of wear and tear…) as well as 3 cases: 2 GW cases that carry all infantry and some tanks, and 1 plastic case that carries the rest of the vehicles minus a couple Russ and the Baneblade, as well as the Ogryn. I’ll also email you with a bunch of different IG lists on Army Builder.

I don’t have any full shots of the army, but if you’re interested, I’d be more than happy to get full shots taken of the force. I’m asking $4000 obo for this army, which is 99% painted and perfect for 40k, Apocalypse, Planetstrike, Cities of Death, etc. You wanna play it, you can with this army!
Whew! Alrighty. These are also up in the ++For Sale++ section of the site, but if you’re interested or want more info, you can email me at SmellsLikeWargaming at hotmail dot com, and we can work something out!!

That being said, I’m hoping to uphold my title as #1 today at my FLGS’s Ladder League with my newly based Alpha Legion this evening after I finish my current obligation! Wish me luck!



  1. I'm having a ton of fun with the Chaos Marines, while I played my Guard to death. Tau are Tau....meh.
