Welcome citizen to Defending Humanity! DH is going to chronicle my (mis)adventures with the miniature wargame Warhammer 40k. I first starting playing the game roughly 6 months ago and I quickly became hooked. So, I've set down some money and have started purchasing and constructing noble troopers of the Imperial Guard.
So far my collection is quite humble, consisting of one 4th ed battle box and one poorly planned purchase (PPP) on ebay that has not arrived yet. For the most part I am waiting to try out the units under 5th edition codex rules before I go any further. In the meantime, however, I have been working on coming up with a theme and paint scheme for my troopers. Since I am a complete beginner at every aspect of this game the schemes will necessarily be a)simple and b)poorly executed. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks my painting skillz will improve to the point that I can actually field a reasonable looking army.
That is all for now- tomorrow there is battle afoot, and my humble guardsmen shall wade into their first firefight. Pictures shall arrive as soon as they have cleared Imperial censors. Ave Imperator!
