Wow, liking the sound of that guard army, just wondering, have you read the short story "Ork Hunter"? it's the Let the Galaxy Burn I think, great guard story, was the first black library story I read. I'd like to welcome you to the forums as well :) sorry I'm not a more senior member, I had an other account but lost access to it. Ah well, it happens haha

hey its cool and thanks, well I am going to try expand it ever year. I have read quite a few books from the black libary was a big fan of the Gotrex and Felix novels but kind of stoped reading them case the auther change and I stoped reading them, but I am a big fan of Dan Abnett's Gaunts Ghosts but not fond of the horis hearsy books since I have all of the 2nd edd books and the back ground and that. but anyway.

so your a space wolf player, that was my first army I played.
how long you been playing the hobby?

yea hes great, I would highly recomend them but thats cool, I have to admit I have had my serious moments with the hobby myself, I am just about to start building up some of the stuff I orderd, like the Sentanals.

so you probaly started at 3rd Edd 2nd edd was good a bit chaotic and we are talking over powerd Charictors, Like Kharne the Batrayer to name one but my 2nd edd army was Space wolfs like I said, but composed of entierly of Wolf Guard, 26 models in total and could take out anything , "ah those were the days!" lol

eya I know what you mean, I got the Imp box set which included a Russ tank but they replaced the dam thing with a sentanal but not that I did not want the centanal haveing a 4th russ would have been good. well I did not like 3rd Edd 4th was good I have to admit, 5ths ok but It seems to me that every even eddition is better though if thay go for a 6th edd I am not moveing GW get enuth money out of my, must have spent a thousand over the entire hobby so far.
