As you may have thought from subsequent posts after finishing Urien Rakarth, my thoughts were firmly on expanding my Dark Eldar, the idea of the Trollbloods falling from favour, forever set to be an unrealised dream (of which I have many, but that is not the discussion here!).
Fast forward a couple of months and, after some extensive reading of the Privateer Press Hordes site and associated forums I have very much regained that spark to pursue another gaming system, to see what it is all about, how the system differs to 40k and if the game can deliver the same epic feeling that 40k gives.
From that starting position I have recently acquired the Forces of Hordes: Trollbloods book to get a better idea of the force I am going with. Having had only a quick flick through I can see already that there is a lot of background information in there on the Trollbloods as well as painting guides. Once I have been through it thoroughly I will throw up a review on the blog.
For a first unit purchase I am looking at starting out with the Warpack, a Fennblades unit, Fell Caller and an Earthborn Dire Troll. Of course this won't be fully decided until I have finished the Trollbloods book, but the models look awesome and the attraction of painting non-power armoured models is tremendously strong for me at the moment.
If anybody has any advice for a complete starter in Hordes, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an email I'm sure it would be appreciated not just by myself, but others who are thinking of starting a Hordes faction.
However, don't worry if you have no interest in Hordes as I will still be progressing the 40k side and will always have new material on that side of the wargaming hobby as well.
