'New Necrons'... Really, you didn't know?

Yes, the guys over at the GW blog 'were very surprised' when they saw the 'awesome new cool Necrons Models you can now Advance Order'.

That right, GW sent us all one of their new ways of announcing new stuff: a youtube video.

Here it is:

Because you can't comment on it as usual, I'll give my opinion a chance to spread itself here.
So, what do I think?

What about the 41st millenium ?

I'm on holiday this week, skiing in Swiss, so that means I'll have lots of time thinking about what to write in my blog (damn lifts...). So, lets talk 40k.

Lord of the Rings: The Strategy Battle Game

Yep, that's where it all started. I saw the then just released Mines of Moraia boxed set, and as a true Tolkien fan*... Well, I was sold immediately.
Then I started to read every single hobby/tactica/house rule there was to find on the net.. Yes, I got the hang of it pretty quickly. Painting, however, wasn't something to boast about. I refused my first 50 miniatures to be even primed. I guess I just didn't understand why that was necessary.
But even then it was clear that Evil was something for me. Every single game we played, I wanted to play with the goblins. It just felt better that way.
But that was untill I finally decided what army to collect. Between brackets: for those of you who have never played the game (... where are you waiting for?), it's a common symptom for Tolkien fans to have no idea where to start. Really, ask any player of this game what his first  boxes were, and I garantee you he'll say: 'well, I started with a box of this, then I bought a box of Uruk-Hai, then a box of  dwarves, then some L.A. elves,...'

The Fourth Era: A Start of Civilisation

The title might have told you, this is going to be a blog of epic proportions, telling you all about my experiences when it comes to Boardgaming, Roleplaying and especially Tabletop Wargaming.
So for those of you looking for political opinions: you're more likely going to find it by sticking your head in a dragons bottom (to stay on topic).
I'm not going to talk about myself a lot, but if you really want to know some stuff about me: there's a gadget (in your upper-left corner I believe) 'about myself', klick that and all your questions shall be answerd.

But why a blog about these things? Well, it just seems to me that all great minds in this community have a blog, Fritz 40k being of course the major one so far as I'm concerned. So I'd thought to follow these people in their pursuit of the ultimate tabletop experience and star my own.

But that's not all, as I'm one of those people who also likes to write tons of articles about his wargaming hobby. Now, my idea was to combine these articles in some kind of seasonal magazine, which I will place on this blog. But I also hope to use this blog as some kind of brainstorm-dropsite, where I can e.g. post a Warhammer 40k list I want to write an article about, to see what the reaction is.

So yes, whatever I post, please comment!

In the next post... An overview of all gaming systems I know and possibly have 'masterd' (to a certain degree).
