Blood Angels up this side.... Betrayal at Calth has made the game a lot more accessible

I agree. Maverik imperial fists def seem to have favourable tactics, along with this they fit the fluff off my Templars in 40k :) You guys reckon there will be a Horus Heresy line that comes out on GW at some stage ? What are your guys armies looking like at moment, as in what way have you built the box set.

I would be interested in starting one up. Had also thought about Imperial Fists, alternatively Salamanders ...

Anyone thinking of putting a forge world order together to pick up elements which aren't available from GW yet, or is a wait a see (what GW will be bringing) approach being adopted?

GW will make the basic kits throughout next year. Remember a lot of stuff is the same between 30k and 40k, just the marks might be different, but most things were available then as well.

I just prefer the resin goodies though. Much nicer sculpts.

Nice, cheaper breacher squads and Templar bretheren would be great.

The templar brethren will be strictly FW, I dont know about the breacher squads, but probably could be as well.

That will suck as 22 pounds is pretty expensive for an upgrade kit for 5 marines.

I also ordered Betrayal at Calth. I'm debating going Dark Angels or it's between renegade legions (Yes I know Dark Angels are already traitors lololol) Word Bearers or Night Lords. Too hard to choose. Going Dark Angels will let me buff my existing army by painting them as Consecrators. I could then use them for 30K, 40K and the board game.

Yeah choosing is the most difficult part about it. Ive decided to just paint my guys up like black templars and just use imperial fist rules lol. Scouring-era FTW.
