New Space Marine Codex! Initial Thoughts.

Yesterday was a good day for me. Despite being entangled with work obligations that kept me away from Game Empire Pasadenas monthly tournament, now ITC established, I got to nerd out anyway. First Amazon delivered The World of Ice and Fire which is a history of Westeros and the Game of Thrones world.
But more importantly I picked up the new Space Marine codex! Let's dive in after the break.

ITC Midseason poll is up. GO VOTE!

If you don't vote, don't complain! I'll give a rundown of my votes later but for now, give it a click and let your voice be heard.

The fate of our game hangs in the balance here people. The end is nigh, should you fail to vote, cataclysm will occur!

Hyperbole and existential crises go well together, don't you agree?

The Sky Isn't Falling, Please Stop. Again.

Well, here I am again writing a post about keeping calm and not buying into the hype that the sky is falling. It seems like every edition since this blog began I've had to write this article at least once. Seriously everyone, the sky isn't falling. If you have no idea what I am referring to congratulations, you've managed to keep your head amid internet outrage or you've managed to not buy into the hype. Either way, good for you. If not, I get it, it's hard to avoid internet rage over every little thing GW publishes. As evidence:

Frontline Gaming on Eldar
Dakka The Sky is Falling Thread 1
 It's referred to in the title as "Operation Pitchfork" for gods' sake.
Dakka The Sky is Falling Thread 2
 This beauty is titled simply "Rage Quit".

I wrote this same article about a codex that supposedly needed banning and major changes in 5th. Codex: Grey Knights. More on this insanely overpowered, what is GW thinking, I must rage quit 40k, new Eldar codex after the break.

Tournament Wrap Up but Mostly a Rant on Mission Design.

My army for the day! 2k Silvermanders and Red Wolves.
Game Empire Pasadena had their monthly tournament yesterday, Saturday April 11, and it was a huge success. With over 30 players in attendance it is becoming clear that GE is the place to come for local 40k tournaments in Southern California. With a track record of over 8 years of consistent monthly tournaments and the addition of these events counting as ITC events the popularity continues to grow. As usual I posted running updates on the C&C Facebook page starting with a pre-event post and a post after each of my rounds, check out the Facebook page for those. Normally I give a run down of my day at the event with these posts but today will be a bit of a departure, today is going to feature a bit of a rant. More after the break.

Haven't Posted Much, Cuz I've Been Painting!

Here is a quick update of what I've been up to. I've been playing quite a bit and painting a lot in preparation for the tournament at Game Empire Pasadena tomorrow. It will be a big one, now that the events are all ITC the crowd, which is always strong, has grown. I haven't posted much on here because I have been focusing so much on painting and playing. Here is a quick set of shots of what I was working on as of 3 days ago. They are all finished now but you'll need to check back tomorrow for that! Pictures after the break.
