Blackmane's Brief Return

Hi all.

It has been a long time since I last posted anything. In fact I think it's been a while since either myself or Zebulon posted anything. Well fear not we haven't been lost in the warp. For my part I have been extremely busy with university. I'm coming up to the end of my final year so there have been many assignments to do and an engineering project to write (that's our equivalent of a dissertation and is pretty much a dissertation in every sense). As such I haven't actually painted anything since I did Zebulon's Tau Barracuda for christmas as far as I can remember. 

However that doesn't mean that I haven't been keeping up with the hobby. As I stated in my last post back in February I bought one of every dwarf kit. I then went on to buy a Knight Titan as I also said I would. Since then I've also picked up the Astra Millitarum codex (I'm still not sure I like that name), the new plastic commissar, Araloth, 60+ Moria Goblins, various LotR metal models both named and unnamed, Kingdom Death Satan and many other bits and pieces. 

The next things I would like to get are 40k 7th edition, when it comes out of course, and the upcoming new Dystopian Wars rulebook. However these items may have to wait for a while and as much as I love 40k I'm leaning towards getting the dystopian wars book first once I do have the money to get them. I'm really looking forward to the updated dystoian wars rules as I'm hoping it help clean up a few rules and just make the rules a bit easier to understand. For example I'm still not entirely sure how the Fresnel class actually works so it would be nice to have better defined rules. As for 7th I think some of the rumoured changes sound quite promising though I would like fleet to go back to allowing an assault after running and 4+ feel no pain would be nice again (I'm thinking of my DE with both of these). 

Well that's all I have time for right now. After next Friday I should find myself with plenty of time to paint so I'm hoping to start getting a lot done as I'm really eager to get back to it. 

Well that's it for this post. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments be they good, bad or somewhere in between.
