warhammer 40000 is a futuristic game in which the player collects an army of minatures and battles them with another players army.
each troop has it's own set of rules and the games can get complicated, so I hope this website will inform you a bit more about this amazing game.
the first thing you need to do before anything else is chosing an army.chosing an army is a difficult task and requires some thought.
to chose an army what you can do is hop on the warhammer websitewarhammer 40000. if you can't I have put some of my personal favourites on here.
you can start in any way, but my favourite is to buy a start collecting.
for an example I will be using the space marines start collecting set for $140 or 69 pounds.
all of these are availible at a games workshop store.when you get home or to you designated biulding area open your set and lay each sheet out on the table or desk. at this
point proceed to take out the tools and lay them out.to assemble each minature spend at least 15 minutes on that minature as it will make
sure that it comes out the best it can.
in the set you get a ten man tactical squad and a dread-naught.you may like to start on a tactical squad member(not the captian).
before you even pick up pat of a soldier you need to consider what weapons to give your troops and what charter they will belong to. you can find a list of charters on the warhammer website or
I have listed my favourties here.
when you have chosen your charter you will need to chose your respective colours.
these will be blue for ultra marines, green for salmanders or black,white and grey for space wolves.
when you have chosen your charter you will need to obtain the paint colors which are availible for $6 a pot or $176 for the space marines paint set.
I am not an expert at painting so for some useful videos click this link
to do ultramarines you will need to paint the entire minature with Macragge blue (exclude gun and any other metallic places).
after, paint all the metallic areras and any places you want to be black with a plain black base coat.
next, paint the entire model with Drakenhoff Nightshade. make sure it gets in the nooks and crannies.
when that is done go over the blue areas of the model with another layer of Macragge blue.
after, begin highlighting the model with calgar blue.
next go over the edges with fenrisen grey, but being very selctive about the edges that should be painted.
when that is done go over all the metallic areas with leadbealcher.this will put a dark grey tinge on it.
it you want a light grey tinge then use a silver paint, after leadbealcher.
after,paint the purity seal on the lag with a grey or other plain color.
when that is done, paint the parchment on the purity seal with cream, and go over it with white.
paint the red on the purity seal and use the same red for they eyes.
add white dots in the eyes for where the light bounces off.
when you have painted your minatures and are happy with all their looks, only the first step is complete! you now move on to the main step.
you play with the minatures! all the minatures have unique rules. this is why I like the game so much!so go ahead and play!
