So you may be answering... which are my favourite armies and why?
Well, if you have read my profile or the previous blog entry, my two favourite armies are Ultramarines and Space Wolves, two of the most ichonic chapters of the loyalist Space Marines.
Why I chose these ones?
- About the Ultramarines, the answer is very simple: when I knew the game, about 1995, they were the army that my friend (the one with the Marneus Calgar miniature I spoke about in the first entry) was playing in 2nd Edition. Then 3rd came, in 1998, and with it my fully love for the game. I started buying boxes and blisters of Space Marines... and until now. What I most loved about the Ultramarines was their "roman"-esque organisation for the army, the fluff they had then, the whole Lord Calgar setting...
- About the Sons of Russ. when I grew up and became legally adult in Spain, in 1999, I was fully playing 40K with my friends... the same friends with which I went to heavy metal and rock concerts... I started then listening to bands with epic and fantasy background, like Blind Guardian, Manowar, etc... and the Space Wolves seemed to me like Space Vikings, and for that time I loved all the viking mythology.
So this is the story so far, hope you liked!
