Welcome all to the 13th round of the unofficial challenge, the first in a new and improved rotation of challenges that will run over the next 12 months! It’s been a hell of a good run on these challenges for the first year of running them, and once the last results are in for February all manner of awards, retrospectives and general internet nerd partying will happen! For this month, though, we’re going back to where it all began, the Space Marines!
That doesn’t just mean you are limited to Adeptus Astartes and their traitor kin, though! Last time, we had all manner of creative entries, from Orks in looted Power Armour to a baffled squad of US Marines that found themselves IN SPAAAACE… and such outside the box thinking is definitely encouraged this time round. Equally, if you do want to just paint up any kind of 40k Marine, be they Chapter or Legion, Loyalist, Traitor or Renegade, Scout or Terminator, Tactical Marine or Chapter Master, then go for it!
Brandish your cutlass and musket and prepare for swashbuckling and adventure on the Spanish Main! Whether you’re marching your pirate army across the Isthmus of Panama as legendary pirate Henry Morgan or terrorizing the Jamaican coasts as the infamous Captain Rivero, Blood and Plunder is a game set in the caribbean during the 17th century that is guaranteed to evoke thrills and capture the imagination of miniature gamers.
