At um Like Blutcher!

Well, I'm completely caught in the web of Dystopian Wars at the moment. It's such a refreshing change of pace to 40k. Anyway, I dug my camera out today (had a really big sort out) and decided to take some pictures of the big guy in the fleet. The Blutcher Dreadnought is a real threat in the field. Boasting 2 shield generators and 4 turrets, it's pretty hard to put damage on this guy. Truly a king of the waves.

Anywho, enjoy the pics

Concerned Musings: Warning, for Smurfs aged 18 and over!

Well, it's been troubling reading with regards to the 'new' sisters of battle 'codex' hasn't it?! Troubling reading indeed.

Now I'm no sisters of battle player (would love to be if the money was available) but Jesus, sometimes you just have to fuck them gently! Not hard and fast like GW, that's just plain rude sometimes. I mean yea sure, theres a time and a place for a good short, sharp, dirty, hard fucking! Don't get me wrong. But the sisters deserve a little better. A little more patience, tact...grace. They deserve to be held carefully in a gentle embrace, before telling them some bollocks like 'I love you' or 'your special'. They deserve respect and time and an opportunity to be listened to.

But boy oh boy have GW gone at them like a sewing machine in power surge! Imagine the mess, all those broken sisters, tired, feeling used, feeling unappreciated, wondering when the clinic opens in the morning! Looks like the sort of scene you see on a bubblegum machine or Dave in the morning doesn't it. So upsetting, such a waste.

If only there was something we could do to stop it. I mean if you had the chance to go back in time, you would stop Indiana Jones 4 from being made wouldn't you! This is surely another one of life's true crimes! Damn you Cruddace, one day it will come around to haunt you! Wargammers never forget!

I'm Ready To Go Again?!

I'm finally back on the web! After nearly two months of BT messing me about, virgin were able to do what they could not and ta da, as if by magic I can watch porn again fill out my next blog entry.

So whats been happening? Well its all change in my life at the moment. My PhD has started and I'm really getting into the spirit of it. Ran my first PCR yesterday and it came out perfect!

I'm in a new flat, which is great but sadly empty due to an acute furniture shortage. Although it is in a really good area and I haven't had any problems yet.

I've met some great people here already including all those involved in the University warhammer club. Its a big club with lots of terrain and everyone is really enthusiastic about lots of different games (including DW which is good times!).

So lifes settling in pretty well I feel.

In terms of wargaming, Not too much progress has been made. I was able to get a dreadnought and some destroyers for my Prussian fleet, which I can take some photos of soon. The dreadnought is especially awesome, such a good value for money piece.

I really need to crack on with painting the ork lootas I finished converting ages ago, but socialising and beer keeps getting in the way. Maybe when I run out of money, I'll get the paints out again?!
