Terminators

For my birthday my brother got me a box of terminators for my Chaos army and I was overjoyed.  Terminators have always been my favorite units from 40k because they are extremely deadly and vicious.  Nothing breaks the spirit of an enemy squad more than a hulking squad of terminators teleporting into their midst.

I built the units the day that I got them and now I’ve got to prime and paint them.  As my army is Crimson Slaughter I’m looking to get Huron Blackheart to bolster my terminators as in the books he always fights with them at his side.  What fo you think of terminators?  Tell me in the comments below.

Thanks for reading, and until next time…

When I first started my blog devoted to nerdy activities, I said that I wanted to get into tabletop games, but couldn’t decide on which game to start with.  Well, my wonderful wife solved that issue for me when she got a box full of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k miniatures from a yard sale site for a whopping $80.  The box she got contained well over $1k worth of stuff, so needless to say I was ecstatic.

There were figures from all the main armies, but I decided to start with Chaos initially.  I chose Chaos mainly because their troops look bad ass.  You take a regular space marine and slap a bunch of skulls on his armor and he looks 100% cooler.  The great thing is that my brother and Army buddy both decided to get into it as well, so now I have two Space Marine players to beat up on with my superior troops.

We have decided on a 500 point battle in October to get our feet wet.  It’s not a very large unit size, but it lets us each bring several models while still getting to use a lot of the game mechanics.  I’m really excited to start up this hobby, even though it’s rather expensive to get fully into.  Lucky for me, my brother and I live really close to a couple good hobby shops that are excited to help us get started.

I have to say the best part for me, is that I enjoy building the models, and am looking forward to painting them all.  I like to collect stuff, so I have my eyes set on some of the larger models, even if they aren’t in the armies that I am interested in playing with.

If you’re into tabletop games let me know which games you play in the comments below.  Also if you play, what armies do you use?  As always I want to thank you for reading.  Any comments/likes/shares/follows are greatly appreciated and can help me grow as a writer.

I get my inspiration for writing from things I read and watch.  I read several different series of books and each of them helps me to learn new techniques that I can add to my stories.  I learn the same thing from watching the movies and shows that I watch.  One of the weak points to my writing is dialogue, so by watching movies and shows I can get more of an idea on how to make my dialogue flow, instead of feeling as clunky as it does.

When it comes to reading, I read several different series depending on genre.

Fantasy– For fantasy my favorites include Game of Thones, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and Dungeons and Dragons/ Forgotten Realms.

Science Fiction– For Sci-Fi I read things such as Star Wars and Warhammer.

Movies and Television– I watch a lot of movies and television, but again I follow along genres.  I watch Star Wars, Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, and Firefly.  I watch a whole lot more than that, but this list gives you a quick idea about what I like to watch and gain inspiration from.

I like to also gain some inspiration from things I see going on around me.  When I go hiking I take in my surroundings and think of ways to integrate the environment more thoroughly into my scenes.  Also while sitting at work I watch how people move, act, and go about their business so I can add more behavior traits to my characters.

Thank you for reading, and in the comments below tell me what kind of things inspire you.
