Not a good day in the Highlands......

Hiya Folks

I have just been reliably informed that due to the current economic climate, staffing issues, and general apathy, Conflict Scotland (GW's only sponsored event in Scotland) has been cancelled.

I for one am deeply saddened as I was looking forward to using my new(ish) eldar for the tournament and all the prep work I've been doing was for naught.  I find myself at a loose end in gaming terms as almost all of the games I've been able to get were in build up to the tourny.

I think in areas where there are conventions or tournaments every other week, the impact of loosing one might not be as severe.  But as it was the only show in town so to speak means there are hundreds of gamers in Scotland now not having anything to look forward too....

And it's only january..... what else can go wrong......

Cheers folks..

Everyone put your hands in the air!!!!

What excellent news!

By now everyone must know about the FAQ's posted on the GW site today.  All the Dark Angel and Black Templar players are rejoicing tonight!  But why has it taken so long for GW to bring the older codex marines in line with CSM?

Could it be the upcoming Grey Knight update?  If what the current buzz says is correct, than this correcting of the older dex's could only to soften the blow of future disappointment.  I guess you have to take the good with the bad, so I will be happy that at least my beloved Deathwing can kick some serious smurf butt now ;)

Cheers and Happy Hunting

So I can now reveal.......

Hi All that see this!

First of all, Happy New year and all that.  I hope Santa brought everyone plenty of shiny new war machines to play with.  In my last post, I said I would soon reveal something of significant importance to me.  To cut a long story short, my son has secured a full time job at our "local" Games Workshop store and has been enrolled in their management training program!  I couple months back he made the trip down to Warhammer HQ in Nottingham and even though he didn't make the cut then, he impressed enough people that when a spot openned up at the store, they sought him out and offered him the job.

I just want to say congrats and I look forward to any snippets of info he can get me from the inside!!!

Cheers and Happy Hunting
