Its Been A While

It's been a bit since my last posting, and I apologize. Work has since interfered, but now I'm back with some more ramblings...

Now, when did I turn Chaos? Well, I suppose the old idea for GW addicts like me apply well in this instance: one army is NOT enough. Don't get me wrong, I loved my DE (and still do- but that's another story), but I wanted a change. Now, yes the DE were tough to use effectively, but that wasn't it either. No, it was the 40K fluff. I was now falling deeper into the overall 40K storyline. The ideas, images, and characters began to energize my interest in the hobby.

It was at this point that I turned to Chaos. I have always had a penchant for the bad guys- in movies, comics, you name it... you want the good guys to win, but the bad guys can be so damn cool... And so it is in 40K. Above all others in Chaos, I was drawn to the Plague Marines. Nurgle himself beckoned.

At the time it was the old metal models and the really OLD plastic (the ones with the plague knife sticking straight up and no pose ability). I did like the spike helmet and gas mask tubes look. It was evocative of WW I (and I am a history nut). Plus, I like horror movies and zombies, and the Nurgle fluff certainly fit in with that.

I bought my first couple of Plague Marines, and I've never looked back...
