So I have been feeling oldschool 40k of late - in particular i have fond memories of playing advanced space crusade. they strategic campaign plus d12 reactive combat is fondly remembered or maybe even misremembered,
my old school scouts and imperial army were going to be the base for this project , but i have decided i want a more cohesive look, with smaller humans to scale well against the new hybrid figures.
I have invested in some nids and more will follow.. my models will be loosely based off the advanced space crusade roster. which included loads of different model types .. even orks, sqauts inquisitors eldar and chaos. not to mention hybrids and Tyranids to fight the imperials.. scouts termies marines etc..
this is a fun based project no end goal except fun hobby time for me. scenery will come eventually but working out how best i want to represent this is still in flux.. i am trying to avoid a big costly table build. But we will see where it takes me. Interior nid hive stuff maybe. or cities of death style board - even zone mort under hive is all vying for my attention. along with a simple card based board nothing is set as yet.
having a put away board with a complete set of painted models scenery is very tempting as i have very little finished models to show for nearly 10 years hobby.
Jonathan Hartman aka Shiboleth is also working on a spacehulk themed board and big game .. which may or may not tie in with this project. I am tentetively consideringa transatlantic game .. or even a follow up or pregame here in the uk . like i say its all a bit early. But one thing is for sure i am certainly feeling the hobby vibe for now.
