It has been some time since my last post. Fear not the predations of the numerous Warp entities and Dark monstrosities that beset our packing office (It is a fearful place! One to which we have lost more than one valiant staff member), I have instead been sealed in the bunker furiously working to get the Dark Eldar advanced orders, Privateer Press releases and pre-Christmas-rush rush all done and dusted before the winter clad descend and coat our land in a snowy blanket of doom!
I have painted a dreary picture but I have had some fun in recent weeks, all fun and no play makes Ross a very cranky Shop Manager and to stop yet more staff losses (The office accounted for three more innocent souls in recent days) I have been allowed to play some games.
Beside the normal Privateer Press Hordes throw downs I have been playing some of the cool Warhammer 40k games, I love my Chaos (the evil spirits in the office have nothing to do with me…..no don’t call the Inquisition!) and some talk of a home brew Kill Team campaign combined with the 40k loving has spurred me on to make some more character full and awesome looking Space Marine characters.
So I began trawling the internet for some bits and bobs and upon my travels I discovered these beauties!
Forge World have started showing off the new miniatures from the forthcoming War for Badab II book and if I’m honest they are beauties.
The seriously cool models did indeed cause me to swerve onto a tangent as I began to read the 1st Badab Book and plumbing its depths for more inspiration, combine this information with the information in the Chaos Codex and the soon to be release Blood Reaver novel by Aaron Demski-Bowden (Red Corsairs and Night Lords attacking and destroying a loyalist Space Marine Chapter) congealed into plans to build a small Night Lord warband from which I will build a new army to fight alongside my renegades!
As the campaign begins in the New Year I’ve got plenty of time so get them built and painted! Keep your eyes peeled for when you next see me I will be almost certainly be Midnight Clad!
Ave Dominous Nox!
