The last two months have been filled with a lot of Warhammer, although that has not left much time to actually spend time doing Warhammer. Allow me to explain.
It’s actually all Tyrion’s fault.
Whatever one might think of the End Times, it has certainly revitalised interest in Warhammer Fantasy. Whether this will be start of something more sustainable or the merely the last hurrah of a once great game system remains to be seen. I for one have been enjoying the books tremendously. To say that the changes to the Elven armies has been dramatic is somewhat of an understatement. Fortunately, my army concept is not invalidated by the new developments, and continues to make sense fluff wise.
While I’ve never played a game so far, warhammer 40,000 holds a special place on my bookshelfs. The vast scope of that universe, the millions of planets and battlefields, the billions upon billions of men dying every day just to guarantee the status quo,… it all speaks to me in tongues of bolter fire and plasma grenades. And what better place to start collecting an army for 40k than Space Marines! These 3 meter tall, power armour-clad human demi-gods of war are the epitome of warfare. To that end, I present to you, the 5th Company of the Imperial Sons!
