Alpha Legion 2010

Arkos made his way out of the conference room, as Lord Bruticus joined him. "Well my lord has the high command given us new orders?"

"Yes Bruticus, inform our command to begin preparing for departure. We will be setting course for the Eastern Fringe, the High Command has given us orders to make contact with a group of humans in the eastern fringe who are not influenced by the Imperium." Arkos said.

"We get to battle the local Xeno filth?" Bruticus asked aware of his last posting in the fringe when he lost a lot of brothers to the Tyranid threat.

"Of course, and Emperor loving fools as well. Here are some profiles on the enemy forces we might meet." handing the data slate to Bruticus and continuing to his personal shuttle.

Well first off....Happy New Year and Decade to all.....The Anarchy's Heart is once more setting off on a new year! While on break I took the time to work on a few surprises for all to check out. On top of relaxing and reading up on Dark Creed, which was a great book even if it is about Word Bearer scum. I seriously suggest the trilogy of books if you want to read up on some good ole Chaos fluff.

Anyways on to matters at hand. The blog is officially back online! I got some terrain finished and more Chaos minions painted as well, so its not all about my Grey Knights as some have asked me. Heh! The local battle bunker had a garage type sale where customers sold lots of their old stuff off and I got some good chaos deals, especially for the Grey Death Legion. I will be posting more here soon. I'm also working on a lot of my Legion of Dragon IG forces now. I'm coming up on 2 years into my dive into chaos and I want to have at least 2K of that army finished before then. I also have plans to work on more of my Titans and Grey Knights. This year will be more laid back and mostly doing what I want to do, then building up a new army. Nids and Tomb Kings are both getting new codex and they are some armies that really interest me. Also I'm hearing rumblings of a new WHFB Core Rules coming out later in the year, so I might get motivated to work on my Orcs and Goblins full time finally. So there is a lot out there to catch my usual New Shiney Syndrome working.

On the club front, this past December we put in an order with Chessex and got some real cool custom dice made of the club logo. Check these out! Our logo is on the #1 of course. We're also planning on making our yearly trek to Games Day this year, and our master plan to take over all is in the works once more.

The two proposed designs, we voted for the left one with the Road Sign look....

Finally here is a cool piece of fiction I created a few years ago for 40K which has finally resurfaced on 40KOnline. My fave IG army of course are Praetorians, so a few years ago I created my own guard background for my Praetorian regiment. The article is once more back up and edited for showing there. As a fan of Zulu, Zulu Dawn, and the Sharpe Books, I took a few ideas from that into my regiments background. After all who doesn't like Guardsmen with Pith Helmets and Lasguns!

The dice seem to be selling like hot cakes. I'm not sure how many I have right now, but at over half of the order is gone already.
