Taking Stock

So today saw the release of the new Codex Dark Angels, and it has sparked a little dormant flame inside me that burns for the 1st Legion, so having a look at items purchased already and realistically looking at what is coming and adding to what I have on the paint table already and well its not pretty really.

Taking stock of available funds and it looks like a lot of Kickstarters I was planning on backing I am going to have to give a miss, and a few I am backing already are in dangerous grounds due to a vets bill, but never mind I will soldier on, I have enough project work to keep a small Chinese factory going for quite some time, I think it will just mean that for the month of July I don’t spend on hobby other than paints and bits like that, although pretty sure I am going to need a few squads of Dark Angels to field a legal Army.

Summer Campaign

Warlord are running a summer online campaign this year, so dust off your orders dice for this massive Bolt Action event – an online campaign where you can post the results of your tabletop battles and try to affect the overall course of the war.

The company in question (no surprise I know as it’s in the title) is Games and Gears. I own a set of their Ichiban Pro brushes that I backed the Kickstarter for and I have to say they are excellent products and I enjoy using them. However, my next experience with them has been far from acceptable let alone good.

In late 2013 Games and Gears started up a Kickstarter for their “next generation battle boards” a 6′ x 4′ set of boards that you could get for a very reasonable price. As they were offering a 10mm scale Dropzone Commander board I leapt on board and pledged…
