"It is said that the sands of time heal all wounds, but the Angels of Death still nurse open wounds. For ten thousand years, the red soldiers of the Emperor have mourned the great loss of their beloved Primarch. Now is the time for their revenge. Let fly my brothers! To victory and DEATH!" Commander Dante, leading the drop on Istvaan 4.
Last night I was up late working on a couple squads of Blood Angels, a second Baal Predator and my Blood Angels Land Raider and this morning I checked my inbox to discover an email from Games Workshop that Blood Angels are in-bound this coming April. To be honest I was a little surprised. We just had a Marine Codex release recently and I'd be much happier if GW spent their time updating armies that actually need it. Still, it comes as a joyful coincidence that as I am updating my Blood Angels Army the codex is on it's way!
The Blood Angels army of mine gives me a welcomed change from fielding the Tau over and over. First of all, it's nice to have an army that can fight. Close-combat is a thrill that I completely miss out on playing the three-fingered warriors of T'aun. Plus, the Blood Angels army isn't quite as concerned about distances. I can rush my warriors out there willy-nilly and still be certain they're going to have their fun too.
I've also got painted models of Dante and Corbulo and I've really found that the combination, when it goes off, is darn near broken and unfair. Especially when you're fielding lightning claw assault terminators!
On to more Tau stuff; I filmed another video last night. This time I'll be talking about deployment and general game-plan. That should get uploaded tonight.
