Warhammer 40000 25th anniversary.

Posted: January 26, 2012 in Blood angels, Warhammer 40000

So this year marks 25 years of warhammer 40000 and I have been with it for 21 years. It all started with Space Hulk 1st edition, then I moved on to Space Marine 2nd edition, and then came the 2nd edition of Warhammer 40000. This is where it all began for me, and now fast forward to now 2012 this year brings two limited edition models and rumours of a 6th edition.

The one on the left is based on the original cover for the Rouge Trader book (the 1st edition of 40k) and while being a great model, It just does not capture the feel of the original cover. Maybe if their were a few more marines involved then it would look like the original cover

The one on the right is based on the art work for the 2nd edition boxed set. Now this one does capture the feel of the the art work, you can just feel the power of the space marine from the pose of the model.
