Time to shut down this poll and check out the results for the latest Tau codex. This one ran longer than I normally run a poll for but almost all the votes were done in the normal time period, so the results shouldn’t be too skewed compared to previous polls.
I’ve said this previously a few times on this blog but for the sake of the article I’ll quickly re-cap. When I got into 40K I did like most and frequented forums to absorb as much information about the game as I could. Something I commonly saw were players complaining about their local gaming stores and how terrible they were in regards to the player-base for assorted reasons. All that complaining I was reading kept me away from any LGS in my area since I figured that the wise words of the internet held true for any location. Long story short, I started going to a shop in the area and everyone was really cool so I’ve been going every week for the past 4-years or so.
Considering all I’ve been doing lately is related to Fratris Salutem, I may as well post about it, at least what I can without giving away too much.
Man, I’ve been in a funk lately with the hobby and gaming. I suppose it was bound to happen eventually. I’ve been going strong with 40K for 7-years now and for some reason or another I’ve just been very “meh” about stuff. It’s not disinterest in the game, I’m still playing weekly and enjoying it, but I think it’s just a culmination of a few things.
To help spread the word quicker, the date for Fratris Salutem had to be moved to June 1st because of a conflict. Naturally, for Magic States they decided May 18th was a wonderful date for their event and this was only told to those who work at Crossroad Games, the event host, a few weeks ago. It’s no fault of XRG and they have offered refunds for those who can’t make June 1st and also lowered the entry fee for those buying tickets going forward.
Games Workshop is cranking out the 6th edition codices and Tau has definitely been one many players were anxious for. As always I like to get a feel for initial impressions of a codex and then later on re-poll once the dust has settled. Considering how popular Tau are, I’m really hoping to get a lot of votes for this one. Don’t let me down ;)
Anyway, vote away on what you think of the new Tau codex.
It’s been a little over a month since I put up the poll asking what you all thought about the new Daemons codex. The results are interesting. So far it’s the lowest rated codex in 6th edition based on the polls I’ve done here anyway. Here’s the results.
I’ve been working hard on the Fratris Salutem event for May 18th at Crossroad Games. Yesterday I got the master done for the winning team’s awards so now I can focus more on getting the missions completed.
The tickets for the 40K event on May 18th, 2013 at Crossroad Games are now on sale. If you’re not sure what Fratris Salutem is you can get some more information regarding it over here. There will be 40 players, 20 per-side, and it will likely sell out. So, if you’re interested in attending then be sure to snag your ticket soon.
I know Rob @ Warhammer39,999 loves it when I do updates to models that have made seemingly little progress and all but here’s an update on my Heldrake :P Seriously though, I do these little updates to keep my motivation going. I often reach these points where I sit back and think, I’ve actually made some progress. This is one of those points.
I absolutely love the Heldrake. It’s been one of my most consistently performing units game to game and I like the model as well. It has also been a model I have not been looking forward to painting because there’s a lot too it. I enjoy painting detailed and intricate models but this thing just has so much surface area that I know damn well it’s going to take me forever with what little time I’ve had lately for painting.
Tournaments burn me out. I enjoy them, don’t get me wrong, but after one I’m hardly in a condition to write-up cool reports. That being said, I didn’t do one for the previous month so something is better than nothing, right?
I’ve mentioned over the past few months the spring event being held at Crossroad Games in Standish, Maine which we’ve decided to call Fratris Salutem. Well, the time has come to get the packet out there and drive some interest!
I enjoy sculpting more than any other part of the hobby. I don’t get to do it very often though. If I were to sculpt as much as I’d like to then nothing would get ever get done on my armies. However, I’ll often come up with a big project, a showpiece I suppose, and focus on that one thing. That’s what this is, my juggernaut.
I held off on making my preferred choice on an allied detachment until the Daemons codex came out. Let me be honest, I have not looked over the Daemons’ codex thoroughly. I have gone through it all but trying to create a list is something I have not done. The reason being that nothing caught my eye. I’m definitely not saying it’s a bad codex or anything like that, just that nothing jumped out at me and made me want to try them.
The highly anticipated Daemons codex is here. I have not had the chance to look at it yet but I know it drastically changes everything. How that plays out in the long run will be interesting but for now I’m looking to get some initial reactions to the new codex.
