But, I did get some cool stuff in the last few weeks. quick reviews follow...
Forge World - Necron Night Shroud Bomber
And... it has Death Spheres. Think photon torpedoes for the battlefield. S10 AP1 Large Blast, bomb with blind and pinning. That's a world of hurt and it carries 5 of them.
I cannot wait to build this thing and give it a shot.
Forge World - Imperial Armour 12 - The Fall of Orpheus
Independent Characters podcast review, I had to order it.
Am I ever glad I did. Just the fluff section is great, but it really shines with the 3 army lists and campaign systems. The army lists are for a new Necron dynasty called the Maynarkh. Very cool options with these guys and you can take a lot of it to regular 40k. The new units are fun.
The other lists are for a Space Marine Minotaurs chapter, again, cool stuff here. The last entry is for the update ImpGuard Death Corps of Krieg. Again, very cool to look at, and I am not a Guard person at all. If I was to do any Imp Guard stuff, it would be these guys, no question.
The campaign system is outstanding. Very fair and balanced while allowing you to play anything you like. There are some example missions but they are suggestions and you can do anything you like, Zone Mortalis, regular 40k, even BFG if you like.
The book is way worth what you pay for it 48 Brit Pounds or $71 dollars at today's rate. Expensive but you do get what you pay for.
Forge World - Abbadon and Loken
Well, that's about it for now, getting tired and it's almost time for a vital signs check. Signing off...
DOH... one more thing...
The guys at Nova Open are doing charity army raffles at this years open. Here is the text from their website raffle section.
Our biggest fundraising events will be charitable army raffles, which focus on engaging the tabletop miniature gaming communities. Raffle tickets are sold online HERE continuously until the drawings which will occur at the NOVA Open Convention on Sunday, September 1, 2013. This year, there are three painted armies being created for the following causes:Sounds awesome to me, and they are giving .95cents of every $1 spent on raffle tickets and you do not need to be there to win. Very cool! I just had to plug that.
Now I'm outta here...
