One Year Giveaway- Win a FREE Battle Demi-Company

EDIT: This competition is now closed.

With the blog turning one year old, I have decided to join Rob at "From the Horus Heresy to Infinity and Beyond" and Dave from "Confessions from a 40k addict" in doing a prize give away. After rummaging around my figure collection, I was able to come up with a Space Marine Battle Demi-Company that I could part with.
 
Entering the competition couldn't be easier; Simply sign up to follow the blog using the blogger followers section on the right hand side of the blog (if you haven't already). Then comment below to register your interest by writing what your favourite 40k army is and why. The competition will run for one month (until 7th of May 2016). One entrant will be picked at random and will win the battle demi-company shown in the photos in this post. Entrants are allowed from anywhere in the globe and are limited to a single entry each.

There is no fee for entering this competition, but I would like to encourage everyone to visit the  "Hero for a Day" page using the link provided and donate for this great cause. Even just a pound or two would be gladly welcomed I am sure.
 

The battle demi-company consists of:
- Space Marine Captain
- 10 Tactical Marines with Flamer
- 5 Tactical Marines with Meltagun
- 5 Tactical Marines with Plasma Gun
- 5 Devastators with 4 missile launchers
- 5 Assault Marines with flamer and power fist
- Dreadnought with twin-linked Lascannon
- Drop Pod
 
The figures are ebay rescues, so have been stripped and undercoated black. The drop pod is partially painted.







 
Any questions, let me know. Remember- to enter, simply sign up to follow the blog using the "Followers" section on the right hand side, then comment below stating your favourite 40k army and why.

EDIT: If you are using the mobile version of the site, you may not be able to see the followers section. Simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "view web version" link. This will take you to the version where you can view the followers section.

NOTE: If you are posting a comment below, please check that you are not submitting as "Unknown" as these entries won't be counted (there are simply too many from "Unknown" entries and I wouldn't be able to award the prize even if I wanted to as I don't know the identity of the entrant).

  3. Wow, what a fantastic giveaway, and a great idea! Thanks also for the shout out for Hero for a Day, it really is a good cause.

    As for my vote, it has to go to the Dark Eldar, the sheer scale of their ambition, selfishness and indulgence knows no bounds - no-one else in the galaxy would have the temerity to encourage an attack by the space marines on their rivals, nor steal off with a few suns just because they can. If you're looking for the epitome of grim dark, I think a race that is so self indulgent they created the eye of terror fits the bill, and the fact that that event didn't discourage the Dark Eldar from their indulgence probably says even more about them!

      I've never heard the Dark Eldar described that way before. It has certainly helped my opinion of them!

    2. It's one of my favourite parts of the DE back story, they were ruled by noble houses at the time, and Vect wasn't a noble, so he attacked and captured a salamanders cruiser (leaving all the crew alive, including a librarian), and delivered it to one of the nobles as a prize. Surprise surprise the space marines tracked the librarian's distress call to where it had been left and destroyed the noble houses, thus leaving a power vacuum for Vect to fill and rule Commorragh. Evil Genius!

  6. I found this blog a bit ago through reddit and again reddit has sent me here.

    As a new player I love the space wolves for all the wrong reasons I've been told. I love wolves and shiny things. I started a bit before the wulfen codex came out and it seemed only natural I picked the right choice. So fate mixed with shiny, seems like a good favorite pick to me.

    Also it's selfish but I really hope I win, this army could help me a ton and I hope to be able to play a big list one day like everyone I know.

  9. I love the Imperial Guard (or you might call it the Astra Militarum) because :
    - Tanks ;
    - the sheer diversity of the looks of the models, from Cadian to Kriegans, to Elyseans, to Vostroyans, Mordians, Valhallans, Catachans etc. There is a flavour of guardsman for everyone ;
    - Even bigger tanks with even more guns ;
    - They are regular humans facing the horrors of the galaxy with just a flak jacket, a lasgun and the man standing next to them (and faith in the God Emperor) ;
    - Did I mention I like tanks?

  11. The Imperial Fist space marines, not only for the sweet mustard yellow armour, belt because when you need someone to hold the line, to fight and prevail against the foes of the imperium, you get the Sentinels of Terra. Plus, Rogal Dorn is the best primarch!

  12. You may say, it is impossible for a man to become like the Machine. And I would reply, that only the smallest mind strives to comprehend its limits.

    The Omnissiah lives as I live and the will of the machine will endure the desires of the flesh.

  14. Really love tyranids because they are always hungry and consume worlds for a snack...

  15. Necrons

    Because when my friends come over and see my miniatures, they always ask what those little robot zombies are!

    Honestly, they're they coolest looking faction along with the Tyranids. At least Necrons are awesomely competitive when it comes to playing 40k.

  18. Space Wolves
    Vikings, wolves and runes.

    These are some of the reasons why I find the SW as the most cruel and ruthless race in the 40k . My background is the biggest reason for the choice of the Space Wolves is that I was born in Sweden and our tradition and culture of the Vikings and Valhall makes you feel proud of their background , and they want to live among the mighty warriors and eat among the Norse gods for man has died in battle.

    They are born with an ax in his hand , and they die with an ax in his hand.
    Imagine after your honorable death in combat - gets to spent the rest of its life in Valhalla with his brothers and sisters to fight on the day and celebrate at night with food and beer!

  19. Raven Guard.

    The idea of scouting around, taking a shot at the most tactical sound target and removing it with precision is something I can get behind, especially considering the normally bulky and loud nature of marines.

  33. I adore the Imperial Guard.

    It's my first army (I've only been playing for a month) and I love the fluff of it, I've spent entire afternoons painting my squads of guardsmen and battling them on Thursdays at my local league. I write tons of fluff for my armies and each battle is like a miniature campaign to me, with everything written in and (hopefully) making sense.

  37. SPEEEEEEEHHHHSS MUREEEEEEEEEEEEEEHNS!

    For me it's always been space marines. I'm a die hard Ultramarines fan, through and through, and as the first miniature army I ever built and painted, they'll always have a special place in my heart. They're also really, really fun to paint.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Dark Angels: I just kind of fell into them with the Dark Vengeance set and it was like fate. The synergy found when the various 'Wings' work together is a thing of beauty. I like being able to rush forward with my ravenwing units one time and then the next game bombard my opponent with Greenwing in drop pods. Using basically the same list I can change up my tactic to fit the situation. We may not be the most competitive chapter at the moment and yes, our dudes look like armoured Christmas Trees; they can be great with the right strategy.

    They're also fun as hell to paint and once painted they look dynamic on the table with their 3 colour schemes.

    Necrons are my favourite army and have been ever since I picked up one of the little metal figures when I was very young.
    Now I'm recently back into 40K, almost 15 years later, I find their new fluff absolutely fascinating! I think my favourite concept of the fluff is their age and how they caused such an impact so very long ago!

  42. Awesome stuff dude, very generous.

  49. Congrats on your achievement! I'm a passionate reader of your blog, though I don't own an army (yet!). I used to play Fantasy in 5th ed. and I've come close to start a 40k army recently, but never have time to commit.

    Favourite army: part of me wants to say Tau, since that's the first 40k army which caught my interest back in the day when I was playing Fantasy and read White Dwarf. However over the last year I followed the new Tau releases and I've grown quite disillusioned about them. Then I at the moment I say White Scars, because they're fast, badass, and have rules which pair well with their background.

    Keep it up!

  55. I'm going to go with something old-school, the Daemonhunters (who were actually my first army)
    The Terminators had so much awesome detail on the metal models, and Coteaz/Stern were amazing special characters, but the main draw to me was the tiny model count. You had to be ridiculously tactical over time as the Codex kept getting left behind by edition updates and such. But the flavour was good enough that I still thought them amazing

  59. Crimson Fists are my main army, I think I originally choose them based on their colors. If I won this demi-company, I'd probably paint them as Sons of Medusa, for a fun ally-force, or readily available enemy army for guests to play with.

  60. So what's up with Blogspot and 40k? There's quite a scene on these blog platforms, but apparently not others. I run @40ktoday, trying to link to content strongly related to 40k the day of it's creation. 90% of content is generated by 10% of sources (click baity sites), but the links to blogspot are mixed in to the tweet feed. Blogspot sites usually offer the deepest 40k content due to bloggers and their expositive nature.

    Sooooo my question is why did y'all discover Blogspot? Is their a rival/antonymic counter blogger group on Blogger? Does anybody use LiveJournal?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think that BlogSpot is the address for Blogger sites. I write this on Blogger and my address has BlogSpot in it.

      When I looked into starting the blog, it appeared that most people use Blogger or WordPress. I went with blogger simply cause it was free and a lot of the sites I was reading used it. I actually follow @40ktoday, its a really neat idea. It's a shame that the major clickbaity sites get most of the attention.

      I think that BlogSpot sites offer the deepest content as they are generally written by people with a passion for the hobby who want to share their work and ideas. Not that the other sites are not passionate about 40k, but I don't rely on this to make my living or have to worry about getting lots of views for advertising.

  61. Chaos Space Marines would have to be my favorite. Despite them being known to have a terrible codex I still find a lot of fun running around with my dirty heretics. I find great joy when Kharne wipes a whole squad of terminators even before any bezerkerz get a chance to swing or that squad of plague marines sitting on an objective in cover that just wont seem to ever die. In the good or the bad they just are fun to play even when your 200 point Chaos Lord wins a challenged and gets turned into a spawn. Every game I got mopped up just makes the games I do win even better.

  62. Dark Angels because of there simplicity but still cooler than default space marines imo. Also my favorite color is green :)

  63. I simply love the space marines as they were my first army and I haven't parted with them since but they are dude a serious upgrade so this would be amazing. I do however have a fascination with the Imperial Guard as I like all the links to WW2 soldiers.

  64. To be honest, I have been a arms-length admirer of Warhammer 40K, never having enough money at one time to fully dive into the "plastic crack kingdom". However, my favorite army has always been the Tau. Practicality, valor, and unity are all used as tools to serve the greater good in their bushido culture. Not to mention how advanced, powerful, and vast their empire has grown in such a small amount of time. They are re-donk-ulous

  65. Mike,I'd like to enter, but I don't really want the models if I win. I have way to many space marines already! If I win, could they be sold or raffled for the hero for a day tourney? If that's ok?

    My fave army is probably the rout. The sons of Russ. My first true army will always hold dear in my heart!

    Congrats on the birthday! Here's to many more!

  66. Space Marines for me; always have been my favourite from the moment my mum's cousin showed me and his son the Dark Angels 3rd Ed codex. The idea of these corageous warriors standing firm against aliens and deamons sparked something in me. I started to read more books, I started to save up all my pocket money, any chance I got I would drag my mum in to the local Games Workshop to look at the latest models in the cabinet and, not long after my tenth birthday, I bought my very own models. I thought long adn hard about what I wanted; although I loved the idea of the big tough tanks of the Imperial Guard, or the flying Eldar, seeing units of models in Power and Terminator Armour arrayed on the table still drew me back to the artwork on the front of that DA codex. It didn't hurt that the 3rd Ed started box had everything I needed apart from the Space Marine Codex to start playing the game either!

    I also loved the idea of creating my own chapter; forging heroes and telling stories no one else in the world was telling. Right from the outset, I created the Ocea-marines. Bad name, bad colour scheme. Kinda boring because everyone thought they were ultramarines I had painted wrong. They lasted about 8-9 months. Then came the Brotherhood of Fire. Although they have had something of a rebranding (the colourscheme devised by an 11 year old was only ever going to look so good, no matter how good my painting skill got!) I've been collecting them continuously for over 18 years now. Sure I have flirted with other armies (I've got a whole Armoured Company of Imperial Guard, with all forms of support, and a pretty unique Ork army... Even the beginnings of a pre-heresy Dark Angels force to bring things full circle!) But my Space Marines, MY Brotherhood Of Fire, will always hold a special place in my heart and games cabinet.

  67. Hi!
    Although I like (and play) Blood angels alot and quite dedicated in that, I really love the Grey knights/Daemonhunters the way they were in 4-th edition.
    They are the sheer epitome of 40k - they are grey and they are knights, the man wandering in darkness of the univerese fighting the unknown, defending humanity and corruptless warriors.
    No wonder that Matt Ward made them so over the top) although I think it hurt the whole conception.

    Found your blog because of retro-thoughts and evolving-40k post so I wanted to thank you for this topics - they are very intresting and helpful. I hope you will continue this series.

Great background, questionable use of Chaos artefacts to battle Chaos, excommunicated by the Inquisition but used by the Radical inquisitors and hunted by the Grey Knights, yet loyal.

  81. It's hard to nail down a favorite army, Fluff wise I like the Imperial Guard because humans are the weakest species in the game and they have to fight all these nasties with a flashlight and some flak armor. Sheer numbers backed up by tanks is how humans survive.

  82. Necrons because they are the first army I played and have a unique feel when playing them ie not dying. But winning these models would be nice cause I'm staring space marines.😃

  83. When I started playing 40K about 10 years ago, I had just sculpted a green stuff miniature for the FU-UK sculpting contest, a very simple model which looked a bit like a demon. The organizers of the contest were so kind as to send everybody who participated ten casts of their own sculpts.

    I started to use these as summoned lesser daemons which was an entry in the Chaos Space Marines codex of the 5th edition. Looking through the codex for other units, I liked the plague marines best. Later I added a chaos lord with a daemon weapon and three obliterators.

    So plague marines with summoned lesser daemons are my favorite 40K army.

    Your giveaway is very generous, cool! Happy birthday to your blog!

  85. My favorite army is Dark Angels. I won't be new here - started to collecting WH 40k with Dark Vengeance and I really love the game… DA fluff (hunting those Emperor-forsaken heretics!), color scheme and variety of the army: fast ravenwing is awesome, heavy deathwing even more awesome - but the most awesome-est ever is possibility to have 2 k points tri-wing army. Someday at least, as for now I really lack even basic models... Will buy them when possible, after couple of years reaching my dream army, but this beautiful Demi-company would be so much helpful...

  87. Will try to keep this short and sweet, but my favorite 40k army is Dark angels. Went halves in Dark Vengeance with a mate about 6 months ago and have been collecting DA ever since. I find their ongoing determination and ruthlessness to hunt the fallen very appealing, especially in how well that translates through their strategies on the tabletop. Aesthetically the models are also great, and definitely prompted me to start collecting them over other chapters. Would love to put this battle demi-company to good use against all sorts of Xeno and traitorous heretics.

  92. My favorite army is the Dark Angels. Bought my son dark vengeance when it came out because I wanted the chaos side. Ended up helping him assemble and paint the dark angels side, and ended up trading him the chaos side for the angels after reading some of the books and the fluff in the codex. Gotta just love the good guys that aren't quite so good all the time.
    On a side note, great reviews and battle reports.

  94. Not sure why I hadn't commented here but seeing everyone else had it felt rude that I'd not. Anyway, Tyranids are my favourite, its been difficult to come to terms with a faction I never actually liked, but they're so forgiving to paint, have one of the largest range of miniatures [even if they're options aren't great] and you can always make your own stuff [as I've proved] and whatever level of scratchbuild is acceptable because they're organic anyway.

    good luck everyone

  96. Dark Angels are my favorite. Always loved the idea of them being a knightly order that hides a dark secret.

  97. In dedicato imperatum ultra articulo mortis (For the Emperor beyond the point of death), I've always loved the Legion of the Damned. I probably don't need to explain why ;-)

  98. My favourite army are Chaos Marines - They were my first army that I played when I was learning the game, and stuck with them for quite a long time. I'd love to start a pre-heresy Chaos army using the Space Marine codex, maybe in Emperor's Children colours :)
