Whoever came up with Carebears was on a serious trip. Thinking that sentient bears who shot lasers out of their stomachs to 'help' people is a good basis for a kid's show is just plain scary.
Swear I remember something involving mechanical bears that talk...maybe thundercats. Anway, I will stop diverting myself.
So, thanks to everyone that has commented so far, it really helps keep me doing what I do and prevent 40K ADD. That said I haven't done any painting or modelling this week. I have ordered some parts for my attack bike counts distraction will continue stopping me from getting on with the tactical squad I have unpainted.
What I have been doing is working on this sucker:
I think this was originally done by ikkaan at deviantART so all credit goes to him for this
I hope you can see it, some of you fellow stomach battalion modellers might know what this refers tp... as an aside note I like the idea of my army being a Badab war army but one that makes it through if you catch my drift.
For those of you who don't know what I am referring to: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Devlan
The plan is to develop this into something like a space marine battle short story so this first image just sets the scene and will hopefully generate some interest. I will say though that my story telling ability sucks and I certainly would appreciate input from you guys at various stages in the process.
I see this as being a collaborative effort with as many people contributing as possible. I do have some ideas in mind that need fleshing out but I need to put my ideas on paper before steaming ahead.
To give you an idea I will definitely need help from you guys with the following:
Starmaps of the Devlan System and surrounding area
Description of the Devlan system.
Squad names, heraldry and background.
What the heck is a novastorm space station? Time the B&C decided once and for all.
Brace for impact, space battles and gratuitous boarding actions will be happening.
Maybe a deathwatch kill team should make an appearance? I don't know
What other forces turn up? Sotha isn't too far away and the scythes of the emperor became good mates with the Lamenters....
If you have any thoughts please feel free to add your 2 pence, that list is just to get things going.
Everything you guys add will certainly be appreciated and will directly or indirectly affect how the whole story develops. I'm excited to see how this pans out and I like to think there will be something for anybody who wants to join in with this.
Basically this is a big sandpit, so jump in, grab and bucket and help me build my epic sandcastle before it's time for tea.
