something unexpected and new to announce: I am getting back into Warhammer 40k… well 30k – Horus Heresy to be precise. I’ve had an intro game for 7th edition after NYE and had to admit, that the game improved a lot since 6th edition (which made me sell my entire collection back then). Now I am not going to get comparably mad again with more than 30.000 points of models back then. Instead I wanted to collect a 2,5k Mechanicum force for Horus Heresy. I spent some time on ebay, buying 2nd hand models and some slightly miscast ones and some stand in 40k Skitarii and Mechanicus models. The highlight were these two guys, already painted in a colour scheme that is actually quite close to my Epic Necrons. That being said, I am going to modify the paint scheme a bit and then adapt it to the remaining models.
As far as I’m concerned, 40k is still not a good game, as far as strategy, tactical depth and game balance go, though it’s fun enough and the new objective mechanics are quite fun. That being said I am looking forward for painting something larger than a Pound coin in quite a while. Also it might be a nice way of getting in touch with players and drag them into Specialist Games as well.
Have you played Horus Heresy yet? Tell
me what you think about it. Cheers.
