My primal scream from last week retains all of its anguish, sorrow, and perceived urgency. I still want more Slaanesh, still think it’s a tragedy I don’t have it. I had a conversation the day after posting about Khorne where a friend casually said “Well, aren’t they getting rid of Slaanesh?” It’s horrifying that such […]
I want to be excited about this upcoming Khorne minidex. I want to be pumped because: A) More Chaos is good and B) When you have a tetra-system like the Chaos guys have, giving something to one God is a great way to presage every other god getting theirs. Except, you know, that’s not what […]
This was a great Saturday! My wife and I got out of town, headed down to Colorado and did a bit of eating and shopping. There’s a restaurant in Fort Collins called Stuft, and they will put all the cheese on your burger, and then give you a side order of freshly-made mac’n’cheese. There is […]
Some items arrived: I picked up a crazy haul from the first Reaper Bones Kickstarter, so I was happy to jump in on the second one. Because of that initial haul, though, I wasn’t particularly interested in the core set of minis. For roughly what I spent the first time around, I focused up on specific […]
My wife and I played a game! Actually, we played two, starting with a 1k battle between her Orks and a combination of CSM and Daemons.
That’s from a Marilyn Manson song! An old one, that I don’t think many folks know. It was a good song, from a great album. Currently, the pale giant is doing a lot of interviews, and they’re making it very challenging to defend my appreciation of the dude’s music. The AV Club couldn’t even get him […]
Harpies? Yes? No? Maybe? To me, the Beastman fluff feels very backed-down, and with the direction GW has gone (see for reference: Necrons) I don’t imagine they’ll change things up. The way Beastmen are presented is…sanitized. I don’t revel in sexual violence, by any means, but given the satyr that serves as the background for […]
So as part of my campaign to rekindle my appreciation of the minis hobby (and spending time at my local after a real blow to the community), I’ve been crafting madly in the last few days. I’ve had a couple games with my Beastmen since the Legions of Chaos dropped (and one more that I’ve not […]
I’ve been playing Fantasy games! With my beastmen! Which means I’ve had frantic hobby days trying to get things up and running! In the past week, I’ve played two games (1500 and 2k, respectively) with the son/father dangerous duo of Kyle the Burning-Eyed and Danny (Danny’s gotten a fair amount of mention, but his nickname’s…Danny).
