    Orks are the lamest army in 40k. They're all just green things that hit things and is a total rip-off of warcraft orcs.

    Also, Imperial Guard is the least fun army ever to play. Who likes sitting still and shooting? Well, guard players, apparently.

    Also, what the hell Eldar + Tau players? I get that being gay is not a choice, but you have a choice of whether you're playing a gay army or not.


    And now I'm done saying things I don't mean in the effort of stimulating angry page posting..

    I hope you all felt incredibly dirty after saying those things. Shame on you all.

    So... I heard Black Templars are getting a codex update this year. Its actually going to be a combined Inquisition + BT + DA book. Initial reports say the double wing with mystics and an Emperor's Champion will be the new "leafblower"

    I read it on Warseer

    The following people are amazing and I love them: Wildcat, Timspork, Kias, Denada, susan, Sharp101, [GHSC]Ryctor, Matev, Matrias, ItBurns, Slapnuts, Dayspring, see317, and the unknown poster that sent me a box of Death Company! <3 If you get them as Santees you should buy them amazing things!

    Tau codex is the next one out.
    They're getting several new battle suits, one for the tau, one piloted by kroot, and one by vespid. They can join together to create a giant robot.
    The kit is going to be the first of GW's new technology, "light 'n sound", and will have buttons built in to make explosion noises and light up guns.
    Batteries not included.

    Got my copy today (won't play till tomorrow tho, didn't have time today).
    The flip side is there was some kind of shipping madness with the final volume of scott pilgrim and it's not in comic shops over here yet.

    er, i mean, something about space marines.

    As promised, I tried to take some pictures of the goods that are in my friends garage.

    I went over today to play a game of warhammer, intending to use each group of IG as a separate platoon. Maybe play a 2000 point game, you know.

    After the first two hours we had found what we thought was all the guardsmen, and then we set about organizing and recording all of them. Brian bought foam trays from Battle Foam to store them all in, since they are not ours and have been receiving wear and tear due to us for years. He thought 10 trays would be enough. He'll be ordering more soon.

    Here is a picture of some of the Praetorians. There are about 80 of them total.
    Spoiler:

    Here are the Praetorian Rough Riders, which I was a little disappointed to learn were conversions.
    Spoiler:

    These are a few of the Valhallans, which seemed to be the most plentiful, and existed in three distinct color schemes.
    Spoiler:

    Next up are the Mordian, which look an awful lot like the Praetorians, but are still hot. These were the least numerous, although Brian may be buying a lot off ebay soon.
    Spoiler:

    Here are the Tallarn Desert Raiders. These were painted the poorest, and are thus probably the oldest.
    Spoiler:

    These are some of the 20 IG vehicles that have congregated over the years.
    Spoiler:

    And here is a group shot. We believe we're looking at about 510 guardsmen here.
    Spoiler:

    Dividing the mass into roughly 4 armies, I reckon we can get about 2000 points of Praetorian/Mordians, 2000 of Tallarn, 2000 Cadians, and 2000 Valhallans. We thought these four groups loosely corresponded to Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, respectively. When we can get four players together we'll have a 4 way Battle of the Four Seasons, for the lols.

    So I got a decent deal on some terrain from Amazon. The Basilica Administratum, Manufactorum, Sanctum Imperialis and some Ork barricades with free two day shipping for $89.

    There are some acts so ruthless, some deeds so unpalatable, that only the Vlka Fenryka are capable of undertaking them. It's what we were bred for. It's the way we were designed. Without qualm or sentiment, without hesitation or whimsy. We take pride in being the only Astartes who will never, under any circumstances, refuse to strike on the Allfather's behalf, no matter what the target, no matter what the cause.
