News and Why I Haven't Been Posting Lately

Greetings once again all.

I haven't been posting lately, and there's a reason for that, which I'll explain after some news.

Scott, who some of you know from the Table Top Generals podcast, has recently decided that his life's ambition is to Kickstart every board game and miniature battle game he can find.  So far, he's bought into Sedition Wars and got a ton of neat stuff for throwing in on the project.  He's also convinced me to buy into Rivet Wars with him.  I'm curious to see what he sees fit to throw his money at next, but at least it'll be interesting and hopefully a lot of fun.

With all these board games going into production and arriving in the mail in the next handful of weeks, we'll have fresh topics of conversation for the podcast, which will be getting restarted shortly, hopefully before February.  One of the things we'd like to try is playing a game while recording and talking about our experiences during and after.  To do that, we've talked about changing our format to a two-plus-hour affair, every other week.  What do you guys think about it?  Let us know below.

In Warhammer 40,000 news, the new Dark Angels codex is awesome.  So far, I'm liking where they're going with the format and style of the new codices.  After a read-through, I can say that the Dark Angels codex is, in my opinion, more powerful than the Chaos Space Marines codex, but I attribute that to the CSM 'dex being the first of the new addition.  Those of you who play or used to play a vanilla Space Marine army probably noticed that in the last edition.

The 6th edition codices also seem to be balanced against the 6th edition rules and not the preceding codex, which I think will help to make "Codex Creep" less of a blatant, glaring issue.  Only time will tell on this one, but I certainly hope this is the case.

The time stamp on my second-most-recent entry to this blog is for November of last year.  Just before that post went up, I lost my job.  I'm now just back on my feet, thank God, and have been very busy adjusting to a new job, getting ahead of bills, saving money and generally getting back into the swing of things after being unemployed for two months and have been super busy.

Obviously, I could have taken my mind off of interviewing and driving around like a mad person looking for work by working on hobby stuff, but you know how it is.  You get depressed and don't want to do anything and that's where I was over the holiday season.

Thankfully, that's all past me now.

Taking a look at the number of followers I had in November versus the number of followers I have now, the thought occurs that I should just take long hiatuses as often as possible, just to see if the number of people who subscribe to the blog jumps every time I do.  No, I won't do that, but it is kind of a funny thought, and I sincerely thank everyone who is subscribed to the blog and I also sincerely hope that you find my blog entertaining.

Also, LEAVE FEEDBACK IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!  Let me know what you guys want to see me work on, what you like!

I have a ton of stuff to work on right now and plenty of projects planned for the rest of the year, so be sure to stay tuned.

All the best,

Congrats on the new job - glad to see you back on the blogging front.

Loved the Raven Guard Cataphract Terminators, don't know how those slipped by me. Keep up the great work!

Until Mat Ward gets his filthy hands on things. It'll be all down hill from there; mark my words. :(
