So for my first post I will hopefully give my readers a quick rundown on who I am and why I have this blog:
I am War009 on multiple forums including Bolter and Chainsword and Work in Progress.
I am a member of a local Arizona gaming gaming group called Metal Head Armory and also one of the blog writers for Entropic Reaper.
I have not played much of late due to work schedule, personal life, team practices for paintball and well GW burnout.
I have been playing 40k since 1997 and have played multiple Marine armies (both Loyalist and Chaos). The army I have played Sisters of Battle/ Adepta Sororitas since 1998. My go to army is my Crimson Fists, which I have been playing since late 3rd early 4th. My Crimson Fists consist of the Full 5th Company, a few units from the 2nd Company (thanks to Sentinels of Terra Supplement) mounte din drop pods, about 40 members of the 128 marines of the Crusade Company (1st Company), and about 60 scouts from the 10th company. OK these were all not built (besides the 5th company) or painted and some stuff is in storage. Recently (thanks to Strike Force Ultra data slate) I removed all terminators from the army to do a Lysander led Imperial Fist 1st Company,....108 suits of Tactical Dreadnought armour (I have 43 terminators built). Then I started buying 30k/ hersey era marines to build....Surprise more Imperial Fists led by Pollux. Lots of Breachers in that army (I have not started on them yet). I also have an all terminator Grey Knight army I need to work on ....Plus my, 2 knights, assassains and Inquistion forces. Eventually I will get them all done.........doubtful.
So this blog's goals are:
- Keep a running Painting log of my armies
-Builds,conversions and projects I am working on
-Painting, weathering, and base building techniques
-Reviews various 40k books
- Breakdown of Imperial Strike Force to be named later (Consists of Mutiple Companies of Crimson Fists led by Chapter Master Pedro Kantor, 1st Company Imperial Fists led by Captain Lysander, Ordo Herticus, Ordo Xenos, Ordo Malleus Inquisitors and their forces, Adepta Sororitas of the Order of our Martyerd Lady, Imperial Knights, Imperial Navy, Adeptus Arbites, and Grey Knights.)
- Eventually short stories about Imperial Strike Force to be named later
Here is a link to my current Work in Progress on Bolter and Chainsword:
War009's Crimson Fists. This blog will be updated more frequently than the Work in progress hopefully.
