Chaos Space Marines from an 11 year old

Posted in Chaos Space Marines, Warhammer 40K on March 1, 2010 by BrentS

I mentioned a few weeks back that my son was going to start playing Warhammer 40K.  After a few hours at one of our local Games Workshop stores he settled on the Chaos Space Marines.  With his birthday coming up, I was able to get him a nice little collection of models to start his ventures into tabletop gaming.    After his first day in the shop he walked out with the 5-pack Chaos Space Marine Squad.  For his birthday, he got a CSM Battleforce Set (15 Space Marines, 8 Khorne Bezerkers, 5 Possessed Chaos Space Marines, and a Rhino).  In order to make his army legal, we also got him the Plastic Chaos Terminator Lord.

Hoping to get him started down the right path, we started  with the Academy.  He’s had his first two lessons, the first focusing on building models and the second on painting them.  Here’s a couple pictures of his first few models: 

Obviously, these aren’t Golden Demon models, but hey I’m proud of my son and I’ve been having lots of fun helping him out.  He does most of the things that you’d expect of an 11 year old – he couldn’t care less about mold lines and he just wants to build the models that make them look as “cool” as possible.

So, this week I’m taking him to his third Academy lesson.  This lesson will focus on army building and the fourth lesson will be learning the rules and playing a game.  He’s really, really looking forward to those lessons.  He’s been dying to star tplaying games.

Stay tuned to my blog for future updates on the World of Chaos Space Marines

P.S. I spent part of my weekend building my own Ork models.  I’ve got about 35 assembled so far

40K anyone?

Most, if all not virtually all, of my posts have been in regard to my endeavors around the Lord of the Rings game.  However, over the last year I’ve been feeling the pull towards Warhammer 40K.  I’ve been buying a few things here and there and the next thing I know, I have a near full blown Waaagh on my hands with Orks.  As I get close to finishing up my army and trip to Phoenix, I think my next project is going to get out there and build (and paint) a full fledged Ork army for 40K.

During this same time, my son is going to be starting to learn 40K (along with one of his friends).  He’s signed up to start the Academy Program at one of our local Games Workshop stores.  He’s been looking through the army books and has settled on Chaos Space Marines.  I thought for sure he’d pick Tyranids but in the end, the access to both monsters and “tanks” won out and he’s settled on Chaos Space Marines.  His friend is building up classic SMs so they should have fun bashing each other in.

In the near future, I hope to expand this blog to cover both of our forrays into 40K.  So you’ll see being seeing both Mordor Orcs and 40K Orks.  I’m definitely looking forward to getting my Mek’s tools out and starting my Waaaagh.  I hope to bring a little Lord of the Rings flair to my own 40K projects.  More to come!

P.S.  New on advanced order are the new Ork Deff Dread and Killa Kanz.  I couldn’t resist and I pre-ordered both of them.
