A Movie!?!

I have just recently discovered that in the making due out this year is a movie called "Ultramarines"
Holy crap that is news to me, and good news at that. Of course its computer generated which I would want nothing less. Real actors portraying to be 7ft tall though can be done as in 300 is to costly a venture at this point, and sometimes the best voices for characters don't have the face or well body to comply. Anyways here is the link to the website and I will keep you informed.
Ultramarines Movie

Also they are going to portray the Imperial Fists in this movie as far that is all I know. The teaser is well hardly even that.


Now I am also a computer geek so when my friend came across this I was amazed!
Check it out: Dreadnought Case
This thing is a computer case as well as the most BA fan art i have seen for 40k.

Innovation in the 41st Millennium

The current links now all work. I have redesigned a little to have my slide show of my Picasa web album playing up top, and the random searched one at the bottom. I suggest watching the bottom one because there are some cool images of fan art as well as models. On top of what my last post stated as updates to happen, I hope to be bringing in a friend to have a few more posts per month for the enigmatic Eldar. Lastly, on the bottom is my blog list which is quite small but potent. I plan to expand on that a little in order to grant all of you insider info into the world of 40k. Dan Abnett is one of the leading minds behind the creation of the galaxy, and no he isn't the Emperor, yet... Please continue to view this blog it will grow and become something very special to fans of 40k.


Citadel Spray Gun

Pleasure of speed. Red does make it go faster! God I am so happy I bought this gun. The price of 30.00 USD has made my Blood Angels Army an enjoyment again since I can base them and then base them again and wash then get down to hand details quickly. This is such a worthy addition to a true hobbiest that wishes to have a large WYSIWYG army otherwise its too daunting not to be paid for it. Perhaps in a year I can even start collecting Imperial Guard army, dreams of the lottery. Anyways, I just wanted to update my elation and I will upload some pictures of finished and in process spraying as well as a movie maybe. I plan to refine my links by the end of the week and hopefully get a battle report soon.

More than a Thousand

I am utterly disappointed at the amount of Blood Angels players here in the North. I almost went to play the Space Wolves after there new codex was released but went against it; thinking that many other player's would start a bandwagon for Russ. As far as I can tell this isn't so and I have yet to come across one player that plays the Wolves. Disappointing as it is I am in this for the long haul with a small portion painted in their glorious red and gold and many more waiting to fill the ranks of my army. I cannot turn back but only forge forward and try to make my army the best looking and play it the strongest.
With the new codex I can play the Angels of Blood the way I always wanted to, Fast, deadly, but with big guns too! Oh did I mention I am a 3rd edition player?! With long history to the Blood Angels. In my early days of what to field I came to my first decision to play Space Marines. Then solely on name alone I chose the Dark Angels, but with that stubborn rule and lack of melee I had to move on. When I was lost and did not know what army to stick to I remember my friend asking me what I wanted in an army. I replied berserk warriors with a lot of psychic potential. He said play the Blood Angels. At my hobby store of ole no one played them and I was instantly hooked with Mephiston's power plus his story of overcoming the Rage. The death company and their ignore wounds, and the Furious Dreadnoughts! The duality of their personalities exemplifying what I feel I have in me, beauty and fury. All this made me a Novitiate instantly. Then I learned of their role in the Heresy, that the Emperor would have never slew Horus without Sanguinius. God how I love this chapter. Yet, their popularity is something I detest. Why do other people desire to play them? If they cannot name the multitude of reasons I just listed then I must best them in combat, the traitors. At my ole hobby store the popular chapter was Black Templars and I was as near to playing them as I was the Wolves but the inner thirst, the lust for combat called me back to my Angels. May I make them and all you other strong, true Blood Angel players proud.
