If you are a regular reader of my blog then you have seen my comic reviews and know that I have a least a little bit of geek in my blood, but recently a old bug has started buzzing in my ear and I’m getting the urge to play Warhammer 40,000 again.
What is Warhammer 40,000 (or 40k as we gamers call it)? It is a table top war game, a cross between Risk and Dungeons & Dragons, where you have “armies” of little army men who fight across a table top war zone. The game has been in existence for almost 30 years and has a very rich background story and community.
I have had several armies over the years:
Space Marines: genetically engineered supersoldiers who are each as good as a squad of ordinary men.
Chaos Space Marines: the same supersoldiers, but warped by evil “gods” that live in an alternate dimension.
And my current army, the last one I was working on before I stopped playing back in 2006, The Imperial Guard: normal human fighting men with tanks and big guns!
I just pulled out my modeling stuff and my old guys. I’m going to be re-building this army and talking about the hobby aspect of it as I go. I hope that you find it half as interesting as I do.
See you tomorrow!
