Drake Seta: My armies and schedule for the future

Hi all

We were asked to do a post to illustrate where we are with our armies as it stands and what our plans are. So here we go into my forces:

Death Guard
My Death Guard force is now at a substantial enough size that I could just walk away from it and deem it complete, but as I want to give this army to my son when he gets older, I feel I need to at least get it to the 6000pt mark. 

So as it stands I have the following completed: 

Battle Captain Nathaniel Garro

Master of Signal Turl Vehroid: artificer armour; bolt pistol; chainsword; melta bombs; refractor field

Praetor Ubbag Jules: archaeotech pistol; paragon blade; melta bombs; iron halo
5 Deathshroud Terminators: melta bombs

19 Tactical Space Marines: + 1 Tactical Sergeant (artificer armour; Deathshroud power scythe; melta bombs)
9 Breacher Space Marines: 2× meltagun; + 1 Breacher Sergeant (artificer armour; combi-weapon; melta bombs)

4 Tactical Support Marines: flamers (chem-munitions); combat blades; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant (artificer armour; melta bombs)

Contemptor Dreadnought Talon

10 Tactical Legionaires
Garro's command squad (with bespoke rules).

Delegatus: artificer armour; bolt pistol; thunder hammer; refractor field 

Nârik Dreygur 

4 Tactical Support Marines: meltaguns; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant 

19 Tactical Space Marines: + 1 Tactical Sergeant (artificer armour; combi-weapon; melta bombs)

Chaos Daemons
My Daemons were the last project I did before I jumped into the Horus Heresy. It was very fun and I decided to go full Tzeentch (colourful, ever changing and clashing). I do want to find some time in the future to add to them, but the current codex is just horrible to play with (too long to set up and just ridiculous) 
Kairos Fateweaver

Lord of Change: Exalted Reward

The Blue Scribes

Heralds of Chaos
• The Changeling

20 Pink Horrors of Tzeentch: Instrument of Chaos; Icon of Chaos; Iridescent Horror (2× Lesser Reward)

Vlka Fenryka
That's right, my favourite Legion has been started too :) currently at 3 wolves!

Legio Mortis + Secutarii cohort
As a co-owner of Titan Owners Club, I do need to mention my Mortis force that I want to do. 
Currently I have my Warlord Titan Bone Garland at a gaming standard. 
I have two Warhounds as Work in progress, as well as a Reaver in assembly. 
I also want to do a full Titan Guard force as well as Knight House Morbidia as allied detachments. Only thing holding me back is the fact they have no defined scheme yet for Mortis Secutarii or the Knight House. 

Future Projects
Well there are many!
Squats; when they strike out in 8th edition to claim some worlds (or realise that by sitting with their plunder in the centre of the galaxy means they are doomed if the Imperium falls). Can't imagine them doing them pre 13th Black Crusade at this stage if they are about to go past midnight. 
Eldar; I do want to do a sizeable Craftworld and kill it off in our Great Crusade. 
Tarellians; Come on GW! 
Sisters of Silence and Custodes; Got to do them. Probably as a group project though. 

Thanks for reading.
