We both knew exactly where we were going the minute those doors opened... the Forgeworld line. Even though we booked it there, we still got stuck in line for about an hour. While Corvus was there only to keep me company... I managed to get just about every last thing I wanted from the event... minus the bitz for my penal legion... though I did get an unexpected treat for that unit. I'll do a follow up article on what I got... as my hobby table is now overflowing with goodies to build and paint.

First stop was the Comic Cave in Columbus Indiana. The local store there is a great, and is always a pleasant environment. Players there are easy going, and rules debates usually end up in just playing it by ear. With the new rules, there were a few new rules conundrums but nothing that a quick consultation with the rule book or a "meh, go for it!" didn't fix right up. We didn't get around to starting until around 5:30, but as I said, it's a pretty laid back environment.

It's rather late and I apologize for not writing for a while. Over the last week I've been moving myself into a new room so that we can bring one more person into the RoB house. Sometime in the next two weeks Corvus Sanguine will be taking up a defensive position in the house alongside Godfrey, Ishmael and I. I say sometime, because I will be taking a two-week hiatus while I attend two seminars in Alabama and New York, respectively. I will attempt to write the next articles in my Knight Fighting and T'au in 6th Edition series, but they will not be published until after I return because I want to be able to double check the rules before I publish. Ishmael, Godfrey and possibly Corvus Sanguine will be taking up the slack in my absence. Until I see you again.

It's time for a retrospective and an early prospective on how the Greater
W...Good is faring in the new edition of forty thousand shots. So sit down and strap in because this will be a multi-parter.

Hello everyone, and welcome to another post of wondermazingly splendiferous proportions. So a long while back I'd written an article on the good old Devastator units from each space marine codex. With the shifting rules of 6th, I thought it'd be interesting to do a follow up on another of the heavy support choices that really benefits from 6th's new rules. The biggest of the Big Guns ye olde Space Marines can bring to the table. The Vindicator!

Well it's all summed up pretty much by the title and the picture. I found this article making a plea to the decency of the 40k community in an attempt to return this commission painted mini to its rightful owner. If you've seen the model, the contact information is above.
If you have a 40k blog, I'd urge you to place this picture there. With any luck, we can see the model returned. It's a sad day when ones models are snatched away by those less honorable players. Hopefully we can play a part in rectifying this.

People have been finding the inevitable holes in the rules which accompany just about any edition change. No matter how you slice it, 40k has a lot of rules, and 6th did nothing but expand that rule even more so. It's not a strange occurrence to see some issues come about from these. Mawloc's vs. Fliers, The conundrum of missing Skyhammer Missiles, and of course the new learning of mechanics like torrent and multiple fire modes.

In essence, this is a continuation of the previous article concerning where Deathwing currently stands in relation to other armies, as well as what to do with Allies. To start, here is the 2000 point list that I currently use:
