I thought today I'd talk a bit about my Chaos Space Marines and why I have the army I have.
The Noise Marines are a unit I've always had a fondness for. They are both scary and funny - a mixture dating back to the older days of 40K where a unit armed with guitars rocking people to death seemed a good idea. I think it's the art from the 2nd Ed Codex Chaos which really sold me on them. In that black and white illo, they are made to like they're extras from an Iron Maiden album cover.

|These little battered cards obviously influenced me way more than I thought!|
Nothing much happened with this, army attempt, though. I kept on roleplaying but miniature nerdity sat in limbo (bar a bit of Blood Bowl painting) until October 2011 when I was encouraged by my girlfriend to try my hand at it again, and through some chums I met on Facebook started playing again. A year down the line I had a fairly solid wee army - the fact I was unemployed for a few months meant I had some time on my hands to paint.
