Deathwatch: Who are we?

As a response to John's reply of my post, I got to thinking of which chapter each of us would choose if we were to make character for the Deathwatch RPG. So this is what I came up with. Please consider tongue firmly in cheek.

First, me. Well I'm sure it will come as no surprise to anyone that I would make a Space Wolf. According to the web site.

The Battle-Brothers of the Space Wolves are ferocious and aggressive warriors. Though far from mindless berserkers, they are certainly possessed of a feral exuberance for battle. They have an overriding sense of duty and honour, and are driven ever onwards by a strong desire to right the many wrongs that have befallen the Imperium of Man since the heady days of the Great Crusade. Space Wolves exhibit a fierce sense of loyalty to their comrades in arms and this is on occasion extended to their compatriots in other branches of the Imperium’s military.
This all really appeals to me. Well that and I'm too bloody predictable and generally unoriginal to pick something else.

Deathwatch RPG: by Fantasy Flight Games

Well the RPG is supposed to be out at GenCon which I believe is the first weekend of August. The first chapters have been announced, they are:
Space Wolves
Dark Angles
Black Templars
Blood Angles
Storm Wardens

The last chapter is a fan-brewed chapter that came about through a contest. There is, at this time, no way to make a Space Marine from a chapter other than these 6, but I guess thats what updates are for.

I'm really looking forward to this.

F You Mech Guard!

This is totally a gimmick army. I wouldn't play this in a regular game, but I would like to take it one time against Tom's Armor company to see if it is decent or not.

New Black Templars

So here are my first attempts at Black Templars. I'm pretty pleased with the Neophyte, but not so much with the Initiate. I still have to do the writing on the Neophytes purity seals, and of course the bases, but other than that they are done.

I went with a khaki color for the robes and the pants and whatnot because I wanted it to look different than the scrolls. I think it came out pretty well.

Issues with BFG.

So I was wandering around the BoLS site and I keep seeing that ad right up at the top for BFG. Well today I noticed for the first time that they have an online store that is offering 25% off GW prices. So I clicked on the link and wondered around a bit. One of the first things I noticed was a link that said "Darkwynn's Imperial Guard Leafblower" so I checked it out. If you don't know, Darkwynn won the 2009 'Ard Boys and the 2010 Adepticon Gladiator with this list. Its called a leafblower because it is designed to blow your opponent off the board first turn. You can find the actual list for 'Ard Boys here, not sure if it changed for Adepticon.

All tagged up!

So I spent the afternoon putting tags (Labels) on all the posts for the blog (all 163 odd posts). If you have a minute, go through your posts and see if I have done an adequate job tagging your posts. If you think it is tagged wrong, feel free to change it, I just ask that you look through all the tags to see if there is one that fits your post before you create a new one. If you feel I have tagged one of your posts incorrectly, I'm sorry, I was doing my best.

Anywho... so yeah, this is day 4 of my vacation...

To all the people I used to work for...
