First piece down  

Saturday, October 31, 2009

I have just finished up my first chaos space marine piece and also my first ever 40k mini.  It is a rhino I did not want to make it a predator basically a way to get the troops into battle faster.  After I paint some marines I will build the vindicator.  I also have been reading the chaos codex in the hopes of a better understanding of the rules.  For now I will let you see the pics.

Where to start  

Friday, October 30, 2009

Ok I now have a bunch of GW stuff and I need to get my army started.  I was instructed by the regulars that I should paint my models as not to anger the dice gods, and that some of them wont play greys. 

Now my paint skills are not Gold Demon quality to say the least so I will go table quality.  I do have experience painting GW LOTR models just never played.

I am going to start with the Rhino should go pretty quick and I will post pics once it is done so maybe tomorrow.  No need to take pics of how to build one I am sure you have all seen that.  I am just making the rhino not the predator version.  So more tomorrow.

A journey begins

Today I visited my local GW shop and watched a game of 40K.  I was drawn to the rhinos at first then seeing the enthusiasm of the kids playing drew me more into the game. After watching the back and fourth and ever changing strategy for an hour I walked up and spoke to the man that would now make me broke, the GW manager.

He took the time and explained the pluses and minuses of all troops and asked a few questions of me and we both decided Chaos Space Marines Black Legion would be my starting army.

Now the purchase he said to start out slow since I had not clue how to play so a 1500 point army plus or minus.

Here is what I bought:


The list

1 Rhino

1 Vindicator

1 Box Chaos Space Marines(10)

1 Box Chaos Terminators(5)

1 Box Death Guard Plague Marines(7)

1 Box Thousand Sons (9)

Chaos Space Marine codex

Now I am sure there are a number of different armies out there but remember I have no clue this is a journey and learning experience.
