The First Expedition - New Horus Heresy and Pre-Heresy focused forum!

January 4th is a date that is notable for many events in history; Burma became independent on that day in 1948, Richard Nixon was impeached as part of the Watergate scandal in 1974 and also my old dear departed Uncle Walter attempted but ultimately failed to travel the length of England in a wheelbarrow pulled by a pack of gerbils (although his death was not in any way related to that).

But now this date will be famous for another reason! It marks the launch of the brand-new 'The First Expedition' website and forum. A continuation of the highly successful 'Great Crusade' forum, this marks a re-launch of that site as a dedicated area for fans of the Great Crusade, Pre-Heresy and the Heresy itself to gather, discuss that period of 40k history, share modelling and painting tips and more! There is already a competition underway (details on that in a few days!) and a Heresy Battles event planned for the beginning of March.

So if you haven't done so already please head over there, sign up and get involved with what is probably the most amicable 40k-based community on the web!

PS: The answer to the question posed by my last post - answered by a grand total of one person (great to know so many people are reading my blog! ^^ ) was 'Epic Space Marine'. The little 6mm guys that is, construction is under way so hopefully some pics to show soon!


  1. Cheers for the link, signing up right now. I was part of The Great Crusade forum, but it's always good to find new ones.

    Keep up the good work with Eater of Worlds, it's inspiring my own 30k stuff immensely!

  2. Thanks a lot for the comment Khorneguy! :) If you have any thoughts about what you would like to see on the forum, or what would be useful, please post away!

    The Great Crusade forum, and now First Expedition, really are a nice little community. You can chat about that niche of 40k with some really knowledgeable guys, and without the kids (or at least loud ones) you get on some forums.
