Storytime

New rumors are around the new Imperial Knights "codex".  They had better not call it a codex because people will once again attempt to argue that super heavies and strength d weapons belong in regular 40k.  They don't.  That's what Apocalypse is for.  Anyone who says otherwise...be it someone on a forum or with a blog or even Jervis Johnson himself is simply wrong.  The game seems to be taking an unpleasant direction and since we have to use small words and simple language every time we try to get a message to the depths of Nottingham in the vein hope that GW might look at this odd "internet" thing that they still don't really acknowledge.  So sit down for a simple story on the state of the game...

A Hopeful Wake-up Call

Well, it's happened.  A news item dropped in the hobby and I'm writing about it...the same day!  Pretty amazing, huh?  What am I talking about?  GW's pretty bleak financials.

2013 Review part 1

So here we are again at the end of another year.  Personally, it's been an interesting 12 months...my better half landed a full-time job and has since been promoted...I was laid off then found another job with a much better company that's actually growing instead of slowly bleeding to death like my former one and most importantly, there has been an insane number of hobby releases.  So we'll go ahead and talk about that one.

Allies...Sometimes its best not to have friends

6th edition is a little over a year old now and I've had some time to consider some of the things I wasn't fond of when the new rules dropped.  After a year, several new codexes and attending a GT I've come to the conclusion that...yeah Allies still suck.

The Warstore Weekend Finale: Mechanicon Day 2

Back again with the end of my long-winded report on Warstore Weekend.  I'm just happy that I'm ending my write-up in the same month as Warstore Weekend.  Games 5 and 6 were on Sunday and after going 0-4 Saturday, my luck was bound to change...right?

The WarStore comes to NJ part 2: Mechanicon Day 1

Game 1:My opponent's Vendetta bearing
down on my Stealth team
Saturday started early.  Very early for a Saturday, thank you.  I was back at the hotel at 8 AM for the first 3 games of Mechanicon.  This was my first GT so I was excited.  I intended to get my teeth kicked in, but 5 games in 2 days are fun, so I was ready to rock.
