There is Only War

I suppose I didn’t really have a choice.  I mean I’ve been away from Games Workshop items for so long, but suddenly things started lining up against me.  I enjoyed Kill Team.  Then I talked about the great Games Workshop store in Oak Park.  The demo for Space Marine was just incredible.  Then a Games Workshop store literally opened five minutes from my house.  This weekend, well I caved.  

Now I used to play Warhammer 40K in the early to mid-90s, but I’ve long sold everything I had back then.  So I’m starting from scratch.  I picked up the Salamander novel, since that is the chapter I’ve chosen to play this time around.  All those fire weapons intrigued the borderline pyromaniac in me.  Then I picked up a Tactical squad and a commander.  It’s just a start, but those 11 miniatures will take me some time to put together and paint.  

Because I have a strange work schedule I was off work today, so I got to pick up Space Marine first thing this morning.  If you’ve played the demo, you already know how much fun this game is.  It combat is just brutal; there isn’t another word for it.  The multi-player has some ridiculous customization options, but some of them are going to take some serious game time to unlock.    So, you should probably expect some more Warhammer 40K posts as my army slowly builds.
