I have recently decided that to welcome the coming of the 5th Edition of 40k, what better way to approach it than to start to collect another army! I thought long and hard, weighed up the pros and cons of the idea, before coming to a decision. It came down to two things, how much do I love the marines, and how good do the necron models look to me even after these years. I decided that as great as the idea of relentless metal skeletons is, the Space Marines are the army for me… for now.
Now I had to decide which chapter, what colour, what fluff, who’s characters and what type of performance I wanted, and after much deliberation, and Bell Of Lost Souls excellent logo sheets, I decided what better chapter to follow than the Blood Ravens.
They remind me of the Dark Angels in a sense that their past too is clouded to the outside universe, and that they have no home world because of this, therefore having to travel by space craft as an entire chapter, hunting for knowledge and secrets long forgotten. The dark mysteries appeal to me what can I say.
So although I will continue to collect my Deathwing army, watch this space, as I will be slowly but meaningfully be adding my Blood Ravens army as time progresses – currently working on my first two combat squads of marines.
