My Warhammer 40,00 Army – The Matherian 362nd Experditionary Force
Writing about web page http://uk.games-workshop.com
I got quite excited by the arrival of my 2 Stygies VIII Pattern Leman Russ Vanquishers this morning. Iíve decided that itís time to start blogging about my Imperial Guard army. This is going to be regular feature where I describe how my army grows with time, how it performs on the battlefield and how Iím learning to use it better.
I thought Iíd start with a little background for people who just donít understand any of that first paragraph.
This army is an army for the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop battle game produced by Games Workshop . The Imperial Guard are the human fighters in a far-future dystopia characterized by massive and never-ending war. They are the backbone of the fighting forces of the Imperium of Man, despite being outclassed in just about every area by the other forces they are at war with. But they bring to the battlefield their determination and sheer numbers.
In real terms, the army is made of plastic miniatures approximately 1 inch tall. Each of these miniatures represents an individual solider in the army and may carry all sorts of weapons to battle. These miniatures are mounted on round bases. Also included in the army a model tanks also made from plastic. These miniatures were purchased unpainted and have all been assembled and painted by me.
Thatís it for this entry. When Iíve written it Iíll post some of the background to my army (also known as fluff). When Iíve taken some good pics Iíll go through each section of my army giving the background of the units (and some tasty details on how well theyíve performed in games Iíve played). Hopefully eventually Iíll be able to add details on new units as I add them, and post battle reports on my experiences with the force.
