A small update

Hey there boys and girls! For a change there's no mega-post today, but instead a series of small items.

1. The "Design me a new banner" contest is off and running, with 12 days left. Nothing says it has to be all custom art and super slick design... enter something! (Yes, I do have entries already, but I'd like to see more.)

2. I recently did a guest article for "The Wraith Gate" on "Eldar & the 5th Edition Tyranid Menace". Head over and tell me I'm wrong!

3. A recent bit of humour from the net... Hitler learns about the Doom of Malan'tai debate:

Amusing enough, I'm willing to forgive the editing gaffe.
Truth told, I think Robin Cruddace did a decent job overall. Plus, I'm happy having Phil Kelly working on other things, like my spiffy new Wolves 'dex. Having Codexes regularly release makes me hopeful that we'll see new stuff soon for those needing a new or updated Codex. (=I=, Dark Eldar, and Eldar, I'm looking at you...)
Still, that item could have been better written.

4. Just for something else, here's a bad pic of some Genestealers I'm painting. This was taken with my phone camera with no attempt to proper lighting. Deal. Also, the colors were not my choice but ended up looking good anyways. The guy in the middle on the round base was the original sample. Current progress is 6 done and sealed, 8 basecoated, 8 assembled and primed. I'd love to do more, but have vacation stuff to do. Expect to see these guys again. (Yes, with "good" pics.)

5. Pet Peeve: When people add an image to the top of their post but don't remove the carriage return. This causes their post to start a line down from being even with the image top. Keep it professional! Keep it OCD! Keep it consistent!

Okay, that almost looks like a real post... Off to take some more cold meds. "I don't have TIME to be sick."

  1. While I do not hate the new Tyranid Codex, I do think that it could have been a bit better written.
    The gaps in some of the rules should never have been allowed....then again, maybe GW couldn't decided what to do with the Doom ability and they wanted the debate on its effects in a vehicle so they could see what gamers thought....okay, even I don't believe that. I do believe that they need to spend more time play testing.
    Secondly, I am also hopeful that the recent binge of codex is a good sign for the future.

    Oh, and I liked the Eldar Vs. Tyranid post.
