About me? Started in 40k at 3rd ed. SM because I loved the models. Build up my first chapter to
company level, including any option of the dex.
Made scoutbikers ,razorbackvariants and dreadweapons myself when not officially available.
Was happy with it,until looked at upcoming Armageddon dex.
Decided to have Black Templars and Salamanders.BT was easy,could rely on dex and other sources.
Salamanders more difficult,had to ask for main-colour,but managed to get a detachment ready.
Pure shiny color (white,yellow,red) I've avoided, I know my border when painting.
I loved the ragnar-books but never got caught with SW list. To much "errata" / need for faq to me.
DA also missed, seen the points charged for them (totally overpricing), real sad, dark green and black
could fit into my collection.
Found new interest at WD and the astartes books.Got Raven Guard and Iron Hands from there.
Did some catachans and IG between marines. Even GK,DW and LotD found me.
Tested eldar,but were not good enough to paint em right. Next try was Tau, more workable,nice minis
and a decent armylist. Background in 2nd tau-dex pissed me,use them now only as targets.
Realized where i can get the "looks" and the "fluff", regretted to have ever left him on terra.
Followed the Inquisition (Malleus,Hereticus) with Inq,GK,SoB and some attached IG.
Again wandered forbidden paths and build some necrons.
4th ed SM looked like much work to change existing lists, took the easy route and made a new chapter.
Then my BT had the same action, decide to work on them or build new on dex got them another crusade.
Last DA dex was way better than the old one,started a successor army when the new sprues were available.
My IG enactment lead to a tank-company,based on the "vehicle-construction-ruleset" and was parked on
shelf until Apocalypse came to me like a granted wish.Buyed tracked vehicles to add 2 tank and 1 mech
infantry company plus a super-heavy company to his service,praised be his name!
Counted what i got pointwise and spotted only 29k. Fixed a SW 1k army to the gap and gathered control
over 30k marines.Added new bike-army from codex SM. Focus now at IG to be redone.
