Thanks to Kaelo who did the first step (I'm rather shy about these things) the Battle Bunnies have a new member - me!
Well, let's do a little introduction of myself:
I grew up with the hobby thanks to my Dad, who started with it at the end of Rogue Trader and played alot of Blood Bowl, Space Crusade and Warhammer Quest - and later Warhammer 40k. As soon as I could hold a brush, he intruduced me to a world of fluff and painting. My first real army were Eldar of Biel-Tan back in early 4th edition, followed by a huge Dark Angels army (including the 3rd Company and a lot of tanks for Apocalypse), a small Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf army, Space Wolves and a small Ultramarines army.
I always loved the fluff of the Horus Heresy and the Siege of Terra - and I was pretty hyped when BL released the HH series, and even more as I saw the FW HH video-teaser back then. My first 30k army were Death Guard, followed by Salamanders - I still need to finish them in the future.
I'm also working on Daemons of Khorne at the moment, in order to have some for Signus Prime ^_^
So, what are my plans for the future?
My first Battle Bunnies project will be a force of House Vyronii - I always loved Knights, and the metallic green paint scheme from Forgeworld is just too awesome! It's also a great opportunity to practise with my airbrush and play with oil paints. I may also add some support infantry, either Solar Auxilia (representing Household Guard) or some Mezoan' Skitarii.
Another army I want to do is my Legio Fureans force - i already started a Reaver Titan a few months ago (her interrior is finished), and I have a lot of Mechanicum stuff to paint for it in order to represent support units from Incaladion.
From a Legions perspective, well lets say I love all Legions, so my ultimative goal is to have atleast a Zone Mortalis force of each - I'm currently working on some Iron Warriors, and hope to finish a 1500 points force and Perturabo in the next months alongside my Knights - after them, I want to finish my Salamanders and start with Imperial Fists!
Speaking of Zone Mortalis, I have bought a 6'x4' board - that wants to be painted too!
Kaelo asked me what my favourite Legion and Primarch is ... and to be honest, that wasn't easy to answer, as I like all of them. But I think i found a worthy representative to answer that question ...
Back then, before I got some Eldar, my Dad allowed me to paint some Nurgle Death Guard ("you can't make something wrong with them") - I guess that's why I still love the XIV'th Legion. Their fluff how they became Plague Marines also always appealed to me - betrayed by their own First Captain ...
Also, Mortarion is a pretty cool guy, as he sees both the Emperor and Horus as tyrants - but it's better to have a tyrant on the throne you know, rather than a foreign, so called "father" - Mortarion joined the rebellion in believe that it's good for the Imperium, I like that! Even as he later started to dig into Chaos and use witch-craft, he tried to make it a weapon - better he wields it than his enemies!
