A work in progress across the gaming community, involving several different people with a passion for 30K and the experience to forge something fairly unique in the gaming community - several new races for games of Warhammer 40,000.
The premise of this project is to act as a foil to the recently published Forgeworld rules for gaming in the 30K universe. Drawing inspiration from the fantastic stories published by the Black Library and the amazing artwork of Neil Roberts, this 'codex' will provide gaming material and hobby inspiration for anyone who feels tierd of marine armies in 30K.
Comments and feedback are welcomed - especially after any playtesting. This is a community effort for the community rather than a 'one man show'.
Alas, the siege is over. The walls held strong against the relentless attacks of heretics. Many heroes were born and slain across two days of furious battle, fought across the torn Imperium.
A fun weekend was had by all, particularly the White Scars. They claimed strongest task force, holding off the combined might of World Eaters, Iron Warriors, Daemons and my own Dark Mechanicum for the weekend.
The second installment of top ten pre-Heresy links, bringing you a selection from this week's news and blogs and a blast from the past.

*The Dread is pretty much 40k, but the paint job (ignoring the chalices) has a very Thousand Sons feel to it. I think the conversion alone is worth a mention here.
I tried quite a few different builds for my Myrmidons before settling with this simple conversion. It's a Defiler body cut short so that 2 of the leg ball joints are removed in-tact on a segment. That segment is simply glued onto the top of the abdomen, using the sockets for the arms.
This leaves a ghastly hole at the front of the model, but it is easily covered with plasticard and decorations. The circular section that the Defiler normally has a hatch in turne dout to be a great place to house the crewman -Â a damned psycher - the model taken from a Penitent Engine.
I'm going to quickly explain how to achieve a very cheap and easy setup for taking pictures for your blogs in this article. I often use a light box, but a few pieces of card and a daylight lamp can suffice.
A model a day; day 17 - more Menials!
I've added two new menials to the squad now. This brings the total to 5 plus 1 Combat Ogryn. The target is 30, including 3+ COGs. Do I have enough models and sanity to do that? We shall see.
A guide for the colours used on my Menials can be found here.
