A new age has begun...

Welcome to the Blog! Anybody involved with the Games Workshop hobby should be aware that Forge World have recently released the first in a series of campaign books set during the Horus Heresy. As a fan of the Horus Heresy novels, i already have a reasonably large Raven Guard army, and after a couple of friends had an idea to start a month by month 'tale of X gamers' style army during 2013, i eagerly agreed! We have also ensured we have 2 players on each side, so we know each game should be nicely balanced. 

Currently our forces stand at:

For the Emperor:

  • Rob - Imperial Fists
  • Dave - Salamanders

For the Warmaster:

  • Alex - Sons of Horus
  • Jim - Night Lords

We are inputting a structure to ensure we all build armies of a similar size at the same speed

Jan: Troops
Feb: HQ
March: Elites/Heavy/Fast
April: Troops
May: Elites/Heavy/Fast
June: HQ/Troops

I have started off making some bases for my first 10 Tactical Marines. The style we are going for is Urban/Snow, so i think these will fit nicely with a little sand to fill the bigger gaps. 

So, thats about it for now, tomorrow i hope to be able to post my first unit built and ready to start painting on January 1st when we get things rolling!
