    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
    4836882940_cab353d240.jpg

    Here are the Praetorian Rough Riders, which I was a little disappointed to learn were conversions.
    4836267379_f6c67f535c.jpg

    4836307711_a12bf4797f_b.jpg

    These are a few of the Valhallans, which seemed to be the most plentiful, and existed in three distinct color schemes.
    4836272309_7f2015a6ff.jpg
    (There seem to be some Tallarns in the corner)

    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.
    4836880140_3800343e64.jpg
    Here we see a double rank squeezed between other guard types. Behind are the Tallarn again, and in front are the artillery detachment of the Praetorians. They look very Mordian-like, but that's just a concidence.

    Here are the Tallarn Desert Raiders. These were painted the poorest, and are thus probably the oldest.
    4836938082_57d362b23b.jpg
    This picture is like a "Where's Waldo?" for special characters. Barely visible are some tallarn rough riders. Proper ones.

    4836881056_a800f8c7ce.jpg
    This is the only old school sentinel in the shop.

    These are some of the 20 IG vehicles that have congregated over the years.
    4836268367_a08d7cd72d.jpg

    4836330871_e561d76df5.jpg
    The vehicles are all either Tallarn or Cadian.

    And here is a group shot. We believe we're looking at about 510 guardsmen here.
    4836266347_a3d544df48_b.jpg

    4836265107_7ddfa8733c_b.jpg

    4836263981_e60fa4b6b8_b.jpg
    Every time I would stand back and take a group shot we would find another shoe box with a dozen more guardsmen in it. Not picture: A collection of unpainted Tanith First and only models, 30 more Cadians, unpainted, and Creed and his colorguard.

    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.

    Not surprising that they look almost the same, if I remember correctly preatorians are mordians with a headswap. :)
