Hello Warseer, it's been a while since I last posted here. But as our gaming group have decided on starting 40k I and a friend (Tadaotoko) decided to start a log on our progress as our armies grow and expand.
What we have decided on is to paint a minimum of 200 points worth of models each month so that we once a month can scale-up our battles. This first month will be a hectic one as we need to build gaming tables and terrain aswell but on the other hand it will be nice to get things started quickly!
As we all starts our armies at the same time this will be an opportunity for us to build our forces around a story, none of us knows a lot about 40k fluff but we worked out that the basic background is that our battles take place on a former agri-world somewhere on the eastern fringe of the imperium.
The Planet has a large garnison of several Imperial Guard regiments as it have been under Tyranid infestation for a long time and the war was about to be lost after the presumed safe bunker of the Imperial High-command was breached by infiltrating Lictors and Genestealers causing confusion and disarray in the command-structure of the planetary defence force.
The fall of the planet was though halted, when the Officer in command of the 139th Krashnkofv infantry regiment together with adepticus mecanicus agents acted on their own initiative, unleashing ancient weapons of mass-destruction that where secretly beeing stored in an old bunker-complex. The Weapons where though not as powerfull as expected even though if major parts of the Tyranid horde was destoryed together with many allied regiments and turning the once green and fertile world into a dead, desert-like landscape.
It is recently after this event that our gaming starts, with me playing the 139th Krashnkofv that without yet realising it are working for the forces of chaos. And Tadaotoko will play Witch Hunters dispatched to bring repentence upon the hertics.
Our gaming group also includes Tyranids, Kreig panzer regiment, Cadian infantry regiment, Ultramarines and Eldar. (still have figure out why the eldar are there)
Well hope the background was satisfactory and we appreciate help with developing it further.
