This winter, we will be mostly revisiting 1993… #RetroHammer

Yep, taking 40k back to where it (nearly) all began! The first boxed set, the first proper Codexes – maybe even the odd goblin green base… ;-)

Don't forget that by 40k2e, Marines were huge, much taller than the mere humans of the guard. In fluff, anyway.

You'd be fine importing the Marines into your 1/72 stuff as-is.

Instant truescale Marines!

There's an idea- might try some comparison shots 👍

Second Edition was my favorite!

I liked 2nd when I played it ten years ago, be sure to limit the number of flamers and terminators tough

@ScottWashburn – yeah, when we thought about it, 2nd was OUR version. RT had already been restructured by a myriad WD articles and supplement and when I bought my copy in 1992 I barely recognised the rulebook from the stuff I'd read!

@nugrim – duly noted, no terminators yet though!

@Keifer113 – or just rethink IGO UGO ;-)
