Whoa, I quit Wh40k and wargaming in general and what immediately happens is GW progressing Wh40k and bringing a primarch back.

Why does it have to be so tacky, though XD ?

The pretensions of respect for work that the intellectual property fanatics hold evaporate as soon as the work in question is performed by a citizen of a "developing country".

World without justice and equality, without profound respect for humans and their life, their work, world based on power, be it economic power, political power or military power is the ultimate degradation of human being as an individual. Such a world is the ultimate heresy.

The new Repulsor grav tank is up for show the last couple of days. I really quite like the chassis, but it looks pre-orkified the way the the guns are bolted on. Not terrible, but... daft.

Similarly, the space-drop assault-y Marines... they look utterly preposterous. The Kharadron Overlord Ball-Danglers look appropriately silly - in a sort of gruff, endearing way, but the Primaris just look a bit... well, less gruff, more cat-held-by-the-scruff-of-the-neck.

Had a good gander through the rulebook yesterday - Nothing superduper exciting in the new lore, well, except one detail:

Iyanden is in the Naogeddon system...

Seems the tie-in novel is painting a more...nuanced side to the primaris and guillipuff compared to the "rules" fluff

:geek:

Things might end up being a bit *censor*-ed up from the start

Having finished Guy Haley's Dark Imperium yesterday, the novel certainly adds a lot of... colour to the new lore. The Primaris do seem a bit tacky when in action, but I quite like the direction that the studio has gone for. Big shake-ups were certainly needed, and I'm all for an approach that is not the disaster that the End Times were for Warhammer Fantasy.

I seem to be getting the new box on pre-order. And I confess a certain childish excitement once again. The new direction and commitment GW has towards its fans is certainly a welcome change, as is the involvement of Jervis Johnson in the new ruleset.

Good to see.

And I am a big fan of the foetid bloat drone.

Yep, it's grand. I caught the interview with Phil Kelly and Andy .... King? I forget, they were interesting though
Not really speaking to my tastes directly, or as cryptic as if like, but they're allowing a great deal of room to play in and scope to evoke interesting things.

----

Myself, I keeping reviewing a 'ragged delegation from Terra' idea - a little force of IG, Storm Troopers, Deathwatch, Sisters of Silence and maybe even Custodes forging out from Terra on a madcap adventure into horror. It's involve acquiring three SC boxes, amongst other things, but I'm quite fond of the idea...

A who's who of people (literally) overshadowed by these Primaris greenhorns...

I too have the bug for 8th Edition. Got a little broken chapters concept brewing. However I don't really have the room or the funds to be starting an army anytime soon, though will likely pick up the rule book to see what it's all about.

Primaris still seem fishy :D

(My local gw store was giving away one interceptor with a WD purchase...The models are honestly lovely,even as snapfit)

well my box should be here this week. I'm likely to get the new Black Library tie-in novel, and just get on with it. Be nice to get back into some serious hobbying and writing!!

I just wish I had more time!
