Initiate's Hobbie Progress!

Greetings Everyone!  I'm going to start by saying I'm holding off on the Fluff for a bit.  Doesn't seem to add anything and I really don't get the traffic to justify it (hopefully yet).  With that said I've got two polls up on the right I'd really appreciate you all making clicky clicky on.  If you have a moment please leave comments!  I need to know what you all think and generally just need feedback.

Breaking the Mold.

Hey everyone (all 6 of you as of typing this).  I've had a few things running through my head as of late regarding the wargaming hobby and I need advice!

The Initiates Army Lists! (Part 2)

Okay so its time to go over my secondary army list.  I'll be honest the only reason this build exists is to try some new units but I was very careful not not break what I know works.  First thing you'll notice is that its very similar to my previous build except for the HQ and the inclusion of another Heavy Support.

The Initiate's Army Lists!

It's been a bit since my last post but its not from a lack of content just a lack of time.  Today I have two lists that I've been working on throughout my time playing Blood Angels.

Life Lessons from the "Initiate"

No fluff for today.  Just want to start a posting that I'll be constantly updating with my little 'life-lessons' that I feel that any new player / painter should take into consideration.  I'll divide this into 'hobby' and 'battles'

Mephiston Vs. Ork Boyz!

+++ Blood Raven Scout - Call-sign: "The Initiate" - Report begin +++
As he stepped down from the ship's ramp a large mob of Orks came crashing through our lines.  He took no time in formalities and moved with a sudden blur that would surely best even the Eldar Witches.  From this blur came a orb of blue that landed perfectly into the chest of the nearest Ork dropping him dead within the second.  As he approached the green mob his back sprouted large bloody wings and he jumped into the air several meters only to crash down into the middle of the orks.  I raised by boltgun to assist and was told not to open fire by my Sergeant.  Above the carnage I saw his Sword grow in size and turn red, already dripping with the blood of several hundred enemies.  When the destruction settled Mephiston was the only one left standing, although I doubt he survived without harm showed no signs of it.  He was truly the Lord of Death.

The Lord of Death Arrives

+++ Blood Raven Scout - Call-sign: "The Initiate" - Report begin +++
We returned to the city after the last of the Orks were routed just in time to see one of the Chapter's Gunships land.  Only one figure emerged but the landing zone went deathly quiet.  The 'man' was clad in red armor brighter than my bothers' and the air around him crackled with power.  We Ravens are no stranger to Psykers but this one made even our own Librarians uneasy.

His name was Mephiston, I had heard stories of this Librarian.  He was reborn after defeating the curse of the Blood Angels and has never been the same.  I could only hope that he came to assist as the Emperor knows our Chapter is in dire need.

We will attack from the superior vantage point.

+++ Blood Raven Scout - Call-sign: "The Initiate" - Report begin +++
Upon landing on the planet our Brothers pushed back the green filth.  The Orks were so tightly packed I did not even have to aim my boltgun to send droves of them into the earth.  It was satisfying to do the Emperor's work and every Xeno dead brought me closer to truly understanding our Chapter's work.  That was, until my Sergeant took my bolt gun with me and told me we were moving.

Find cover Brothers!

+++ Blood Raven Scout - Call-sign: "The Initiate" - Report begin +++

The company's Librarian has instructed all scouts to begin maintaining personnel reports on our activities within the chapter.  "Knowledge is power" he says. "We must document, remember and above all guard it well." I know not why he insists on this, surely it is better to focus our bodies to be weapons of the Emperor?  No matter, I obey the will of the Chapter.

Heroes of Armageddon Contribution!

As you all know I'm extremely new to not just Warhammer 40k but also the blog scene.  The main blog I stalk is Jawaballs's Blood Angels.  This guy is simply Warhammer mentality personified.  Now I'm not going to start singing his praises but check his blog out (chances are you came from his blog if yo are viewing mine) and you will see what I mean.  So on to the purpose of this posting.

Tithes to the Imperium

I put up a donate button.  I'm not expecting anything but I figured it wouldn't hurt as I hope to have content that is worth the time it takes to put it up (one day at least).  But mainly, I was suggested it by a fellow blogger because I am the 'leader' (I use that term loosely) of a local hobby club of newbie Warhammer 40k players.
