So, this is my first post on Bolter & Chainsword. I’ve been a long time lurker, but finally thought I’d share what I’ve been up to. I’ll use this thread as a log for my Ultramarine forces, which is my primary collection. I’ve been interested in the hobby ever since I was a kid, and collected various things since then, but I’ve only really been playing for the last couple of years. I have a mate locally who also plays, so I manage to get the odd game in each month. We don’t use mega competitive armies, just try various units and combos trying to keep it fluffy, although we are looking in to some local tournaments, and i'm considering going to a birng and battle evening at my local Warhammer store in the near future. We managed to play a couple of games today, and i managed to make some notes, so I thought I’d try and make a little bat rep which I’ll post in a moment which I hope you'll enjoy. Any feedback on list, style of the report, etc is welcome. I'll try and get my pictures onto the laptop and add them to the next post if possible.
So a few times I've been asked for close ups and references to my battle reports so I think it's time to just start this up as a thread: Contents: + Finished Thousand Sons and Tzeentch Models are here: +LINK+ The following WIPs and Finished projects are in order of oldest to newest: + WIP shots of various units: Tanks/Forgefiend/Flamers/etc: +LINK+ + Finally...after some delays Magnus the Red is complete! +LINK+ + Alright time for Daemons!

Whilst on a covert mission on a strange alien planet, the Raven guard uncover a huge egg that is on the brink of hatching a dangerous creature! They also expose an Admech force, led by Belisarius Cawl himself who has his own plans for what lives inside. Enjoy this custom mission guys! Was incredibly fun . We also have a link in the video to the rules so you can also play it. Cheers. https://youtu.be/H9qUS9AAnvc
