Howdy boys and girls,
As you know, if you follow my blog, I've been going gaga over Warhammer 40K of late. A while back I was really into it, oh around 3rd edition, and like many got sick and tired of the constant changes mostly concerning the Codex's (army lists). Because of the way Games Workshop would release stuff back then, they bring out a new Codex that basically broke the game and you had to wait for your Codex to catch up or new edition of rule book. So I dropped out and sold all my armies (I could kick myself now) and continued on my merry way playing other cool games or miniatures. 10 years later I'm back. My group of friends (one of which smartly kept his armies so has much less to paint to catch up) has committed hardcore into getting back into it and I must say we've been having a blast relearning to play and all the different changes that have happened over the years. This past Sunday we played a 500 point game of Tyranids against my Tau and it was the first game that we played that went the full seven turns and a close one it was. Which brings me to the point of this article, showing off the lastest addition to my Tau collection, the old style (not the new remodeled release) Tau XV8 Crisis battlesuits. Because of all the multiple different weapon load outs these boys can have I decided to install magnets on all the weapons so I could custom pick which weapons I wanted to fight with against whatever type army I might face. I hope you enjoy the look.
What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.
