It's been and gonna be awhile...

  Sorry about the long-term absence.  Apparently, it turns out that I'm not nearly as smart as I used to be and my coursework has been especially humbling.  There was a point in time when the U.S. military was going to pay to make me a rocket scientist and I could recite Shakespeare verbatim.  Today, I can't remember which superhero movie we're up to and I'm having troubles adding anything that isn't an Army List.  I miss writing army lists...


 
  I did have to finally get excited again, as I found the Horus Heresy board game coming out- and it's MY TWO ARMIES!!!  Being a huge fan of the Calth War and all things Guilliman, and being he outcast in the hobby community (the boys scouts and the jehovah's witnesses of the universe), I was a tad bit surprised.  Something like this:


  Remember that I never thought that GW should have done the novels or the adaptation of the game for 30k. I feel like some myths need to remain myths.  But Black Library proved they could do it and FW has gone ape-nuts with the stuff.  If only it weren't so expensive.  If only, let's say, there was a box game that included plastic, cheap models to enter that world.  Yep, my eyes were still wide.



  While the box game is meant to see the models inside painted for both legions, I am having the conundrum of figuring out what I want to do.  After all, the game itself might actually be pretty cool (check out a run-down of the rules at Spikey Bits blog).  In that case, I won't have to choose.  But what happens if I buy two boxes?  Well, I'm thinking that my often-ignored Ultramarines are gonna get some reinforcements...


  But these are all just pipe-dreams right now.  I have two battle companies of Ultramarines currently waiting to be painted (and I even have the spray paint, so I have no excuses) already, plus this is supposed to be the 'Year of the Greenskin' for me.  I've got to stay focused (or just get focused).  And I have so many campaign ideas (anyone remember Black Reach?)...


  However, I'm still trying to complete my schoolwork and not feel dumb, so it may be a while before I get to test my temptations.  Ugh, homework...  But this had me so excited that I had to check in.  What is everyone else thinking?

  And once you get the game yourself- Happy Gaming!
