Greetings Battle Brothers

Post by Brother Ratvan on Sat Nov 26, 2011 1:51 pm

Hello All

My name is Matt, I'm 26 (on Monday), I live and work in Leeds, England but originally from Portsmouth and new to Grey Knights and to the current edition of Warhammer 40K, although I do extensively play Warhammer Fantasy (Bretonnians) Malifaux (The Guild) and Necromunda (Redemptionists)

I decided upon the Grey Knights as I initially fell in love with the model kit for the Grey Knights Squads and all of the range following that with one exception (the Dreadknight) and the fact that I do not want a large Horde army, I love GW and all but they can't take all my monies.

So shortly I will be posting an army list that I hope to buy as part of a slow grow campaign and project log for the LGC and gain some advice with my army lists and tactics.

Thank you, I am excited to get my mini's and get painting, thankfully since my main army is Bretonnia I don't need to buy a new paint set Very Happy

I plan on doing a plog hopefully starting some point next week when I buy my first purchase and keep the updates small 20-40 a month (tight budget but I have a Malifaux log to work on too) and try and work on winter bases

First purchases will be Codex, Grey Knights Squad and HQ (Crowe if champ not in store)

A quick sword swap on Crowe, and he actually makes a really nice Champion model Cool
