Recap

Howdy.

I've been knee-deep in nappies for the last couple of weeks so painting time has been limited and gaming so far this year has been non-existent.

So just to keep things ticking over, here are some of my IG vehicles that I have pictures of on photobucket...

Is it fake?

Bit of an impromptu post this one, brought about by the leak of what is alleged to be the 6th Edition 40k rule book. I haven't seen this document myself as I wouldn't know where to start - law-abiding citizen that I am - but I've kept an eye on scuttlebutt on various forums.

So what do people think? Is it real? Is it an elaborate fake? Or is it, as is likely, an early playtest copy?

2012 - Looking forwards...

Happy new year to you all!

Looking back, 2011 was an interesting year from a war gaming perspective for me. The behemoth that is the Warhammer universe was put on something of a back burner with only game of 40k played all year. My focus instead was on the smaller scale of thing, both with Epic from a painting perspective, and with Flames of War which occupied me for the majority of it.

So what does 2012 hold projects wise?

Flames of War US Airborne - this will probably expand into a full on US infantry and tank force once plastic soldier company releases the relevant plastics.

Flames of War Panzergrenadier force - I picked up a box of late war german infantry from Boyes in York (by plastic soldier company) and will be expanding these with the SKD's that they do at some point.

Warhammer Fantasy - yes, you read that right. I have a large amount of half-painted Empire that I intend to finally finish off and I will be giving 8th edition a pop.

Warhammer 40k - I'll be finishing off my leman russ and three half-painted super-heavies over the coming year. I will also hopefully go back to my scratch-built titans and finish them off. Then when 6th edition is released I will hopefully be in a good position.

Dystopian Wars - once the mrs gets back to back from maternity leave and the money situation improves I intend to pick up a small force for this.

I hope the forthcoming year is a good one for you all!
