What I've been up to lately: The Hobbit SBG

Hi Everyone,

Before I get into the meat of this post: The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey, I'd like to talk a bit about this:

It was logical for GW to release some sort of Hobbit expansion for Lord of The Rings Strategy Battle Game. But dear Emperor, what has GW done to SBG! Every little tactic you've build up is practically gone: spear support, bow support... Sad panda.
Additionally, prices went even higher: 30€ for 12 'Hunter Orcs'!!! When I started Lotr 7/8 years ago, you could get free stuff with magazines, and buy 24 of them for 17,5€!
And man, 100€ for a damn starter set? I started with a just released 50€ Mines of Moria.

I still have to get games in, but I certainly don't like what I've seen so far.

And just a little detail of frustration: no profiles in the small rulebook! The great thing about Lotr was that you had everything in that little book you needed to play games: scenarios, rules, profiles,...
I didn't have to buy a single expansion for my mordor army 'till 2008.

Now, you need the set for the models + the rulebook to use 'm. Compare 160€ to 50€ and you understand my frustration.

Now, onto the film itself.

What I've been up to lately: 40k

Hi everyone,

As explained in this post, I'm powering up again for some Blog goodness.

So, what have I been up to lately in the 40k universe?

Well, Let's Get Blogging Again

Hi Everyone,

This, is just a short post to say: *insert Mat Smith Doctor Who voice* "I'm back"

As you might've noticed, it's quite a while ago since my previous post.

To be fair, I quit blogging because of two reasons:
 1. Who would ever read this?!
 2. Damn, it takes quite some time

So I just stopped. But now, I've come to realise that both of that doesn't matter, as long as I have a medium through which I can express my wargaming ideas etc.

I used to do this on forums, but still, you can go to forums talking about your own ideas. Forums are generally about asking for help or giving somebody advice when that person asked for help.

So, now even more I want to talk about.

In fact, there's so much, I'll have to give you an overview spread over multiple posts.

Now, what are you waiting for? Go read 'em!
