Everything Old is New Again

Back in the day when I was first painting miniatures the minis were lead from Grenadier and the paints were enamels from Testors. There were some cool things you could do with enamels, especially if you wanted something shiny. Over time the lead went out of figures and I switched over to acrylic paints that could be worked with just using water instead of having to use chemical thinners to clean your brushes.

Why tell you this, other than to establish that I've been around a while and that during my youth I was exposed to potentially harmful chemicals? It will be relevant, I promise. But first another interlude.

So, we've looked at the rumored rules and considered some of their implications, but if they're real what might they mean to a real existing army?

Let's take a look at a few of mine and see.

The Prisoner has escaped! "Number 6" breakdown and thoughts

When earlier 6th edition 40K rumors (or "rumours" as the Brits call them) came out I was skeptical.  Assault before shooting?  Multiple levels of a rule? Bidding for first turn? A lot sounded unlikely in the individual and partial glimpses that the rumors teased with. The "Project Prisoner" (a reference to the TV show where the main character is referred to as "Number 6", hence 6th edition) was undoubtedly coming, but in what form was still pretty unclear.

Lost and the Damned for Special Operations: Killzone!

Sometimes a massive horde of expendable cultist and mutant meatshields just isn't the right tool for the job.

Sadly, some might say.

But I say that those situations are the perfect excuse to send  in an elite Kill Team!  And how better to represent that than through Special Operations: Killzone

Lost and the Damned Bibliography update

"Library of Alexandria" by Ania Gilmore

I've had another round of new entries for the bibliography, getting a lot of nice entries from the various Chapter histories in the Imperial Armor Badab War books. 

The bibliography is currently sitting at 157 entries, a lot more than I thought it would at this point!  I hope that with your help using sources you may have on hand that aren't listed we can crack 200 before too long.  Just email me through my profile on the right if you have something to add or corrections.

Some more blog recommendations for your viewing pleasure in case you missed them in the blogrolls.  A lot of these are pretty new to me too but I think they all deserve more eyeballs than they're currently getting.  So go check them out!

The Unholy Harbinger Chaos! Some great painting and is crazy enough to seriously consider a list full of spawn.  Gotta love it.

Warhammer in Progress More awesome Chaos, plus Orks and terrain?  Gimme!

Codex: Lost and the Damned Version 1.1

I was recently on vacation again, and as has become my habit I got some thinking done on the Lost and the Damned, reviewing things myself and thinking about some of the feedback I've gotten.  Here's the result.

Version 1.1

What's changed?

Added title page and basic table of contents.

Added modeling notes and development section.  Added a couple of examples of how people might come up with armies.
