Great video guys - I always find it quite refreshing when people talk about kit-bashing over "just spend more money on GW stuff".  I know a few people who get workable armies just by throwing obscene amounts of cash at collecting an army.  For the rest of us, it feels like we're falling behind in an arms race ... and yeah, where are our Space Marine Helldrakes?

Thanks for putting this up - heard about this through some friends, and we're just feeling really fed up and numb.  This is way to soon, and it just feels like GW in a dash for cash ... AGAIN.

Wouldn't be too bad as you say if there was a core rulebook available - I'm in the hobby, I don't need all that.  But with 6th edition they did the rulebook for NZD160, and only introduced the core rulebook for NZD100 last year.  We were in a hobby shop last weekend, and looking into maybe starting up a Warmachine army.  We've had loads of players around us defect to Warmachine, esp as prices in NZ are somewhat elevated for Games Workshop.

If this rumour is true, we may well continue to play, but I think we're going to find getting a match increasingly difficult as the defection rates continue.

Guys - when people ask me about my hometown I often send them this video.  Love it.  I recognise so many of those places, it's the background to my childhood - the good, the bad and the ugly parts ...

Could do with a link to the original Miagi Do salvo - had to do some hunting there.  Would be interesting to see what your aims and goals are.  Oh my ... am I talking Mission Statements here!?!  8-(
We've been a bit cagey with this over the past few years, but we've decided that we want to do more, be more, and actually draw a line in the sand and say "this is what we stand for, this is who we are, and this is why we are here". Miagi-do officially placed itself in a place where it could be ...

Having not had the Escalation list, the "you can take 1x Lord of War" has me a bit "meh".  Feels it has potential to be "everyone brings a Lord of War" becoming "the first person who kills the opposing players Lord of War is essentially the winner.  Maybe it's because I've avoided Escalation, but it's inclusion seems a big shake up to me.

There was a huge fanfare for 6th edition, with the giant price hike attached.  Went up from NZD100 to NZD150.  I'm betting this new rulesbook will come with another price hike.

I'm a real loyal Games Workshop player, but I think I'm done now.  Time to look at Infinity or Warmachine.  Warhammer was already bleeding players, and this is the final straw for a lot of my friends.

Love your videos, would love your opinion on Pedro Kantor - seen your old video for the 5th edition.
