THE END TIMES!! Plus some more random hobby junk.

The end is nearing for 5th edition of Warhammer 40k. Flyers on June 6th look to be the last release before 5th edition ends and the 6th rises.  You can't go to any board without hearing gloom and doom.  The world is ending.

I don't think it's that bad but I do think that it may screw things up a bit.  I look at the bag that holds my templar and I wonder if any of my lists will be usable for NOVA if tey move that way.  If they aren't will I have enough time to recover or will I be looking at a painful weekend of drinking to drown my sorrows?  Either way I will have fun. 

The last of my BT army arrives this week with a nice Deathjack for my Cryx army.  While I am loving finishing the Cryx army, I am chopping at the bit to work on either my BT or Chaos.  The new bases I ordered for the Chaos army have arrived.  I know I need to finish the army but the alure of the dark gods are calling. 

I have managed to Gorman di Wulfe, Rogue Alchemist painted this evening.  While it was a rush job, I think he turned out good.  I need to do some more shading but he is playable.  The rest of this week will be to get the Ban Thralls started, build and prime my Wraith Engine, Wraith Shadow Combine,
Bane Lord Tartarus, pGaspy, and Bane Thrall UA.  It looks like a lot but it shouldn't take me too long to get them set. I should have close to two 35 pt armies painted.  Not bad.  Not bad at all. 
After the league is done, I have to start getting ready for the Dream Wizards 2000 point tournament.  I plan on getting my butt handed to me.  The players there are good.  Some of the areas best.  If I can win one match, I will be lucky.  It will be a good learning experience for NOVA. 


  1. I'm looking forward to 6th edition. I'm taking a wait and see attitude on the rules, as there's been way too many rumors to try to sort out what is actually true. In the meantime, I'm working on some Space Wolves. It's a safe bet they'll be a decent army no matter what. Still don't know what to do with this Baneblade though.

    1. Space Wolves are nice I like them a lot. Hmmmm....Baneblade. That is just a cool looking model. Was looking at those hoping that traitor guard can use them.
