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!
This blog was created as a resource for fans of Pre-Heresy World Eaters, and also to chart my progress as I built the force and mused on different ideas for it!
At present the blog is inhabiting limbo, the place between projects ongoing and ones which have been shelved. My interest in Pre-heresy (and 40k in general) is being propped up by the Black Library books and the wonderful community that has grown around discussing it, and absolutely no progress has been made on the modelling, painting and game playing side of things for at least 6 months!
That being said, the chaps over at the Great Crusade forum (go take a look!) are organising an event for March 2013 which I am planning on attending. Will the 13th legion then be collecting skulls via boarding torpedoes in space, or even at the 6mm scale? Quite possibly!
In the meantime, please let me know any thoughts and comments with an aim to make this blog a better resource for World Eater players!
