About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

Blood Angels Ready for Pre-Order

If you've not heard already, Blood Angels are now Available for Pre-Order. This army is looking pretty wicked, from the rumors and just the models themselves. With many of the rumors already verified including the new "Flying Landraider" this army will be one to beat. I can't wait to see them across the table and have my chance at taking them down.

I'll be stopping at GW today to get myself a little peak at this book. Many have said GW already has there store copies and I just want to verify some of the rumors myself. That and I'll be putting the baby on pre-order, with the way the fluff and shear power of the new codices are I'm sure it'll be a fun, yet painful read when I compare them to my now very much aging armies.

Astorath the Grim is the Blood Angels' High Chaplain and Redeemer of the Lost. He is a true Angel of Death, a legend of destruction who fights like a man possessed and brings with him the twin gifts of death and redemption.

Gabriel Seth is the Chapter Master of the Flesh Tearers. Fully aware that he cannot curtail the bloodlust that runs through the veins of his Battle-Brothers, Seth has resolved to lead his Chapter in an unrelenting campaign against the Emperor's enemies, in the hope that the Flesh Tearers will one day regain their place among the Imperium's pantheon of honoured defenders.

The Sanguinor is a golden angel of vengeance who descends from the heavens only in times of the Blood Angels' greatest need. To most he is a myth, but those few who have seen him cut a bloody path through the Blood Angels' enemies and blaze across the battlefield like a hot and angry wind know different.

Chaplain Lemartes is the warden of the Death Company and never have they been such a potent force as under his guidance. Though Lemartes himself is afflicted by the accursed Black Rage, his formidable willpower has allowed him to remain in control of his actions, leaving him free to lead the Death Company in glorious charges that eclipse all the deeds of legend.

A Blood Angel who serves with distinction will one day be elevated to the hallowed ranks of the Chapter's Veteran Company. Members of the company are living exemplars to their Battle-Brothers, true masters of the many weapons a Space Marine can be called upon to employ, and famed for the devastation they have brought upon the Emperor's foes.

The Warriors of the Death Company seek only one thing - death in battle - and they are sent forth to their final fight with great honour. Consumed by the Black Rage, members of the Death Company fight completely without fear and are impervious to wounds that would kill other Space Marines. Many of the Blood Angels' greatest victories have followed a shattering assault by the Death Company. There are few enemies who can hope to stay the onset of such maddened warriors.

The Sanguinary Guard are the uttermost elite of the Blood Angels. They fight with wrist-mounted Angelus boltguns that leave both hands free for the wielding of crackling power glaives. The Sanguinary Guard are a brotherhood of mortals-become-gods and their deeds the stuff of legends.

The Baal Predator is a specialised variant of the Predator design. The Baals weapon load-out is far more closely suited to the close range fire fights favoured by the Blood Angels, employing twin-assault cannons to shred enemy formations. Furthermore, equipped with a turret mounted flamestrom cannon it is capable of swiftly clearing bunkers and barricades.

Tactical squads are the most numerous in a chapter and form the backbone of a fighting force. As their name suggests they are highly flexible having the tactical adaptability to deal with virtually any foe. Armed primarily with the holy bolter, some squad members carry more specialised weapons such as the plasma or meltagun.

Space Marines who excel in the fury of close combat are organised into Assault squads and equipped with jump packs that allow them to take the fight to the enemy in brutal close-quarter fighting. Armed with a mixture of pistols and swords, they are terrifying foes in battle, dropping from above like flaming angels of death.
