I'm a new member here at the B&C, and I am in the process of building and painting a variety of armies for 30K (for 40K too, but that's a different section of the forum I believe).
There is currently NO interest in my hobby club about the Heresy, everyone is fixated on playing 9th Ed. 40K. Personally I haven't tried 9th, hated 8th and was none to keen on 6th and 7th either. More than likely I will be playing with a couple of friends using 40K 5th edition as the basis for our games, adding in some alternating/random activation shenanigans in place of the IgoUgo style of standard 40K. Yes, I realize that this makes me a heretic in many peoples eyes. No, I don't really care. I like to have fun playing non-competitive games and I quite enjoy tinkering with rules between games, so this works best for me.
In terms of models and armies, don't expect to see a lot of Forgeworld goodies in this thread. I have a few FW minis I bought years ago, but I don't have a lot of cash at the moment. Most of my models come from the BaC and BoP boxes, along with whatever 40K stuff I can kitbash and a few 3rd party bitz here and there. Obviously I am trying to avoid mk.VII armour, but the odd arm/bolter/chainsword or two may crop up from time to time.
My forces so far are based loosely around the Shadow Crusade/Imperium Secundus, and I have minis set aside for Word Bearers, World Eaters, Ultramarines and Dark Angels, plus assorted Dramatis Persona for the narrative part of the games.
I hope to have some painted minis to show off in the near future, but in the meantime here are a handful of World Eater assault marines that I primed up recently.
