This post is in recognition of a man who is as motivated and dedicated to a concept as anyone I've seen in gaming circles. His site has been on the net for over a decade and is still updated regularly.
This is an example of what you will see:
The creativity to come up with the backstory and details that he has written up for his chapter is more than I have seen for some entire role playing campaigns - just check out the Codex. The dedication to stick with it for two decades (plus) sends it over the top. I know he started playing around the same time I did - when 40K first came out - so this is not a one-off burst of creativity - this is a sustained run that few of us experience.
I've considered painting up a squad of tiger marines to let them make a guest appearance in some of my games but I don't know that it would feel right. If I ever run a Deathwatch campaign though, you can bet they will be making an appearance of some kind. They may show up in the next Sci-FI or Supers game I run if I need a fighting force from a distant world.
|I especially like the white tiger terminators - that is too cool...|
