Warhammer 40,000
Warhammer 40,000 or simply Warhammer 40K is a miniature-based tabletop game. It involves building and painting your own miniature army and pit them against others' on a dioramic 6x4 or 4x4 feet table using a standardized set of game rules. Miniature armies come in various factions, from Imperial commandos to space-faring orks, each with its own background stories (what 40K players call "fluff") and combat units.

My army, a sub-faction of the Adeptus Astartes or the Space Marines, is of the so-called Dark Angels Chapter - one of thousands of regiments of bio-enhanced supersoldiers created by the Emperor of Man to impose his will throughout the grim universe of the 41st millennium.

Dark Angels of the Adeptus Astartes
The Dark Angels Chapter is first among legions of Space Marines bred by the Emperor from his own genetic imprints. Enhanced physiologically for combat operations, they are literally Angels of Death in the battlefield, sowing fear to anyone who dared oppose their mandate. Their homeworld, Caliban - now reduced to a barren asteroid after an epic battle against their traitorous Brothers - holds the Chapter's mobile fortress-monastery called the Tower of Angels. Here, deep within the labyrinthine pathways to the underground caverns, lies the key to their monastic nature. The Dark Angels hides a millenia-long secret that compromised their honor. It is with this reason that they and their Successor Chapters are called the Unforgiven.

Hobby Updates

Warhammer 40,000
* Still painting the Space Marines list that I'll be using for the incoming local Warhammer 40K Grand Tournament 2008. I just finished painting a Chaplain in Jump Pack. See the "My Painted Models" link in the sidebar for updates.

* I've been cooking two new armies/list for what's left of my models in preparation for the new Codex and 5th Edition Rules: a meltagun-gallore Chaos army list and a mechanized Dark Angels list (Ironwing). I'm aiming to go start working for the latter first.

*Bought the Horus Heresy series book "Descent of Angels", a novel about the history of the Dark Angels Chapter.

* I'm thinking starting a "Darius & Jacks" army.

* I traded some of the Cygnar stuffs I got from Garr for some Circle Orboros stuffs from EJ. See the "My Unfinished Miniatures" link in the sidebar for updates.

* Bought a Feralgheist to boost my Kromac army.
