Virgin....

Welcome my brothers to Venerable's very own blog!

First post - woot!

The purpose of the blog is to share and gain valuable insight into Warhammer 40k.

I have been involved since I was a small child, however I only started to get properly addicted to plastic crack about 18-20 months ago....I'm now 26 and still playing with little plastic soldiers...

I now run a huge number of armies, all reasonably well and have a pretty good W/D/L ratio.

My main problem is that I switch armies so often due to boredom/loss of interest. The armies that have kept my attention the longest are Tau and Space Marines.

Space Marines are boring. Simple as. Unless you roll with something a little different. For me, certain codices allow more interesting builds - the Deathwing, the Space Wolf all Cavalry lists, the vanilla bike lists...these are the SM armies I can dig.

With the coming of the Blood Angels codex I got excited. Here was an army I could get behind. I prepared for its coming with Land Speeders and Dreadnoughts, Assault Marines with Jump Packs...then when the codex landed in my hands....I realised that what I had prepared was not really the list to roll with...

So, next post will be sample army lists, what I am currently running and why.

Plus, a load of variant armies that I MAY run. All Death Company, Mephiston & Land Raiders etc (mainly pants ones that are good enough fun but not hyper-competitive)

Next I have 5 video'd battle reports to come as I test out my current mech list... I'll post these over the next day or so once I figure out how! With write ups too!

This blog will be updated regularly and will educate you and I.

I aim to hit the UK GT this year and make the final minimum...help me get there!

Cheers
Venerable

  1. Welcome to the wonderful world of the 40k blogosphere. After your shameless self-pimping on YTTH I am totally going to check this place out and follow the crap out of it :D

    I can totally sympathize with army ADD. I enjoy playing non-standard armies most, namely my Deathwing, Loganwing and soon Bloodwing, also IG, Orks and Daemons. I like 'em quirky and competitive, so Orks and Daemons give me fits :P

    Let's see what you can do at the UKGT, I'm looking forward to it.

    And of course, turnabout it fair play. Check out Blackjack & Hookers (www.bnhblog.blogspot.com) for all things me! I might talk about 40k too.
