Has been played in out club now for a few years on and off. But reciently with Forge worlds throwing some coal on the fire, and releasing books and miniture in huge waves. It has really taken off.
And I must admit, although not being Games Workshops co. most devote fan, I do love the "fluff" behind The Horus Heresy, (I mean any future space race that takes on a millennia old military formations (roman legions), just makes me moist!). And I find it so much more inviting than 40k ever did.
Now if you have looked at my blog before you will know I mainly play historical games. But I am a sucker for a good ride on a band wagon!
I play Wargames because I like to out mini men and big tanks on the table, make silly noises and have a laugh. Laughing is one thing I have lost from historical gaming recently. And noticing some of my club member playing a campign every week, with some sweet looking minis and all having an amazing time. I simply couldn't resist any longer!
I'm doing it small atm... Well when I say small, in doing it as large as the grumpy bank man will let me. Sooo in small chunks to be precise.
So welcome to my one of many band wagons, is not the first and deffinatly won't be the last!
So I'm starting with the XVIII Leigion the Salamanders. Originally it was going to be the Iron Warriors, but wow those guys are boaring!
As soon as I seen the sneek preview of Vulkans model, I went all week at the knees. And new they were the Legion for me. Although they acording to the fluff the stuggled to take part in the Horus Hersy after Istivan, I am lucky that my friend who runs the campaigns in the club has agreed to bend the future historical facts a little.
So with out further delay. Here is what I'm working on:
Firstly the tank! A Pre Heresy Predator
I will do a post seperatly for everything I'm painting up.
Hope you all enjoy
