BBC Celebrates 40K's Birthday

I know I'm late to the party on this.   However I just found it, and since I liked it I wanted to post about it.

BBC featured a video and article about 40K on their site that depicted 40K in a fairly honest and non-exploitative manner.  I was very impressed, and I highly encourage you to check them out.

Battle Report 3/6-3/14

Having fallen off the 40K wagon for a bit, I really needed something to get me going again.  Thankfully featured opponent and good friend Steve changed schedules and is home at lunch.  So we decided to get a good 1500 point game in to prep us for an upcoming game day with our gaming group.

The battle was well contested, and while the dice did not help Steve in most of the game, they abandoned me at the end enough to turn the tables on me.

Hit the jump to see how it all played out.

My Unannounced, Unintended, Unfortunate Sabbatical is Over

So yeah , I've spent some time away from the blog.  It was unintended.  However events overtook me, real life over took me, and both pushed me into a wall that resulted in very little 40K, and absolutely no writing.

But it's over, I played a game of 40K recently and am working on a battle report, and as spring draws ever closer I find myself shaking off the duldrums of winter and the rubble of the wall.  I have models to paint, armies to fight, and a Tau opponent who deserves to lose to me at some point...someday.  Anyway, for those of you who occasionally visited the site, updates will start happening again...on some schedule (I'm not sure what, but there will be some sort of schedule).

It is an Honor to Have This Warboss in My Army

Look at my website banner.  See that really awesome Warboss?  The one that's the best looking miniature in my army?  The one painted by my buddy Steve?  Yeah well now, go buy the Cool Mini Or Not 2010 Annual that was just released.  Because that Warboss, the one painted by my buddy Steve, is on page 101.  So buy it, and look at Steve's stuff at CMON, and then vote for his stuff.
