40k Modular Trenches

Spotted by @PVasiljevic on Twitter

Here’s a picture of the Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Defence Network, the modular trenches first seen in the new Codex: Chaos Space Marines. It’s rumoured to have a price tag of €140, or approximately £112. It’s a huge terrain piece, and looks a bit like the trenches in the video game Space Marine.

40k Fiction

I’ve always had a funny relationship with the novels based on the Warhammer 40k universe. I thought they would be a waste of money that could go towards new miniatures, paint, etc.

I borrowed “Horus Rising” by Dan Abnett from a friend (who was in turn borrowing it from a friend), but I didn’t enjoy it. Well, what little I read of it. I got about 70 pages in before deciding I didn’t really get this “Warhammer 30k” business, and stopped there. I wanted desperately to be able to enjoy the book, but I couldn’t. It would appear that being in GCSEs has extinguished my passion for reading, due to crappy set-texts in English class, and a lack of free time to sit down with a cup of tea and a book.

And now I’ve found something. I downloaded a sample of “For The Emperor!”, a Ciaphas Cain novel by Sandy Mitchell. And now I’m going to buy “Hero of the Imperium”, a compilation of the first 3 Ciaphas Cain books. And start a loyalist Imperial Guard army. And now I can read again. I love the Cain books like docbungle loves Devlan Mud. Thank you, Sandy Mitchell.
