The Emperors Legacy

Sebastian woke from a terrifying dream. The Immortal God-Emperor whispered to him. He knew what must be done ...

This site will be dedicated to my hobby of Warhammer 40K. I dabbled in the game about 4-5 years ago. I started with a VERY small Chaos Space Marine (CSM) army which did not see a lot of action. This was during the 3rd edition ruleset. After playing some games with friends I realized I did not want to continue down the path of Chaos. I remember looking over the different race material and deciding on the Imperial Guard. The biggest factor in my decision was the amount of armor that can be fielded. Another factor was the Human Equation. Out of all the races the IG are plain humans. They are not genetically enhanced, do not use daemonic powers, and are not technically advanced. Since the IG are nothing but humans I wanted my army to be symbolic of our troops and to pay homage to them and their sacrifices. Because of this I paint my models after the basic forest camo pattern pre-digital print.

My IG troops are based off the Cadian Maladin home system and are part of the 812th Battle Company. This is still a relatively new Company which will change in structure and size over the years. Currently I am in the process of putting together enough troops, about 10 and a transport, just so I can get back into the game with friends.

For me the fluff of W40K is what drew me in. I love reading over the stories printed in each book. Learning what drives each race to move forward and the history that brought them to their current state. Since I enjoy the fluff so much it will become a part of the site and hopefully something you enjoy reading. It will be italized so you can skip it if you wish.

Something else I plan to do is Battle Reports. I got this idea from Ailaros on the 40konline forums. Ailaros battles are tense and the story fluff really gets you in the mood.

Please feel free to leave comments, suggestions, etc.
