Thoughts from the Dark Side
|Shudder to think how much I've pumped in to FW.|
After about 10 years as a staunch Imperial Player, filing off the Aquilla from a water bottle is a pretty surreal experience. But I realised that the lure of these amazing models was too much, and that my loyalty to the Guard is greater than my loyalty to the Imperium. In terms of rules these guys are pretty much Guard, so I decided a small (1000pt) army would not displease the Dice Gods too much. Besides, all my opponents play Imperial so I think we need something to balance it out.
Regular readers will recall my update on the Forgeworld order for the last few posts, usually in the form of a moan. They ended up taking three weeks to get here which was by far the longest it's ever taken, but they got here in the end.

Despite these disappointments I won't let that detract from the incredible quality of these models. They are very expensive, but some of the finest I have ever seen from FW with the possible exception of Death Korps, and I'm hugely looking forward to painting them (not least because they're something new!)
