Greetings to the Best of the Best

Post by Maximus on Wed May 11, 2011 7:06 am

Hail Noble Knights of Titan.
I have recently returned to 40k from a few years of sabatical. I started in 40k with Ultramarines in 2003 when I arrived in the UK from South Africa. Really enjoyed the game truth be told but I became a bit despondent with the amount of codex and rulebook changes that took place. I have spent the last couple of years in WW2 wargaming so my tactical and strategical skill is still a sharp as I would like it. In GW I seemed to be spending more on books than models but the calling of the Emperor could not be ignored for long. It is an honour to be back in the game and what can I say I had to come back with the Grey Knights. I got the new rules and the codex last week. My starting army has already been compiled and is on order. I hope to be up to speed with the new 5th edition rules asap and hope to learn much from my brothers here. The modelling side is one of the big draws for me as I think the models are just brilliant so I hope to show you chaps my boys soon.

Enough waffle time to assemble for war and smite some Deamons!!

Pic upload

Post by Maximus on Thu May 12, 2011 12:24 am

Many thanks for the warm welcome brothers. I was wanting to upload some pictures of my current Ultramarines to show you the standard in which the Grey Knights will turn out but for the life of me I can't seem to get the damn thing to work....Deamons at work. Appreciate your help on this

I just went over to the gallery and have appear to have had more success there. Just waiting for them to be approved by our Honourble Administratum chaps.

Just heard from my fine supplier people....the Grey Knights will be deep striking onto my workbench by the weekend. Will keep yu posted on progress brothers. I also have just got hold of Model Air Silver for my airbrush so these boys are going to get spoilt. lol!

Many thanks Brother NemesisForce, I am noticing that this game is still a great appeal to even us Veterans see many brothers on this forum and at my club into their 40's are really enjoying 40K at the moment. I never did grow up fully and refuse to apologise for it. Very Happy I am totally engrossed in the new codex. Should probably post this in another section but just a quick one. Under the Nemesis Weapons am I reading it right that each unit does a leadership test to activate our mighty Nemesis weapons at the start of the game and then they are active for the whole game or do we test each time we use our force weapons.

Again thanks for the welcome.....Strength and honour.

Could not resist Brother Klomster and it seemed, well, just right. Always loved that part in the Arena with the Phoney emperor demanding his name and he turns round and says "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, General of the Armies of the North, Commander of the Phoenix Legions, servent to the true ruler of Rome Marcus Arrellius, husband to a murdered wife, father to a murdered son and I shall have my vengeance in this life or the next" You could almost picture a puddle at the feet of that phoney emperor. LOL.

I think I'll use that line to intimidate those foolish to cross my path lol! lol!

Thanks for the welcome.....Strength and honour

If the unit can cast any more psychic abilities that player turn, then you can activate your force weapons for the unit / squad by rolling a leadership test after the first unsaved wound caused by a NFW. Hope that helps. Very Happy

Many thanks Brother. Absolutely, the boys in blue have done a great job getting me back to the game, but it is now time for the Hammer of Titan to achieve full glory. I am just finishing up some commission jobs and then the Grey Knights will have my full attention.
