Hi folks

I'm Si, i'm 28 and after a looooong break i'm re-discovering the hobby. I started GW before the Second edition of 40k came out (1991 i think) and was a happy Wolf lord. Had many a fun battle with Space Wolves, then moved on to Ultramarines then finally had some fun with Orks.

Since playing Dawn of War i've decided to come back to this happy (and somewhat more expensive! ) hobby and have put together a Crimson Fists army, and i'm also looking at The Blood Ravens - Any particular thoughts on this Army choice??

Interests aside from GW are Golf, Sci-fi, reading and i'm also a member of the 501st Legion, and spend a lot of time fundrasing :smile:

Look foward to chatting with you all

Cheers :D

Hi Cyrox, welcome on board. Always good to see people coming back to the hobby!

Nice choice with the crimson fists, I really like their colourscheme and background. Are you using traits to represent them or just the colourscheme? As for the Blood Ravens (a very characterful chapter in my opinion) there was a section in White Dwarf a while back about their backgroundstory. I'll find the issue later today and post some stuff up, might give you some more ideas.

So hope you'll enjoy your time here and see you around on the forum!


Cheers,

Found the issue, problem is just that after scanning and uploading it to photobucket it becomes very hard to read. If you want I can mail the 6 pages to you?

Lol, nice going El. I was just about to post the same one. The pics are indeed the IA article, so nothing new there I'm afraid. However I do have some other stuff;

- compiled info from the novels
- captain angelos
- usefull painting tutorial, pics are in the last post
- think I have something else somewhere....somewhere

Now as for army ideas;
- librarian heavy
- they're suppossed to be very good in cc, very determined
- so maybe something like true grit and counter attack skills (+4 points I think)
- use lotts of books and scrolls (just ask around here sure there's lotts of poeple with spare stuff)

Welcome to Heresy, Cyrox, hope you enjoy it here. Looks like you've already made friends with several Blood Ravens players; tell Firewolf you'll get the Space Wolves out the attic, that should keep him happy (happy enough not to hunt you down and tek yer eyes, at least).

I like the Crimson Fists myself, used to play them back in RT days (when IIRC the only chapters I knew were Dark Angels and Crimson Fists. And figures cost about 40p). Don't see them very often, so good on ya for 1 - going against the flow and 2 - making an old man happy.

See ya around - and enjoy!

welcome Cyrox. back in the day when i played SM (being about a few months ago) i had a particular liking for the Blood Ravens but never played them. However now worshiping the Gods of Chaos, i feel obliged to say "Death to the False Emperor" and things from my particular firey legion like "Touch me and Burn" and "I shall turn your Blood Ravens into Kentucky Fried Raven"

anyways, be nice around the forums and post thoughtfully. great to have another recruit

Hey dude welcome to the brand spanking new site.

Go with Fists! - When I first started with 40k I was going to go as them but then got converted to Smurfs. Really wish that I had stayed with them now.

Anyway - enjoy your stay.

On the Blood Ravens...

... maybe something like true grit and counter attack skills (+4 points I think) ...
Blood Raven traits are Trust Your Battle Brothers (which does get you true grit and counter attack, but is +3 pts) and See but Don't Be Seen.
