Tale of 4 warlords
With the release of 8th edition 40k, I decided that it was time to revisit the world. I'd pretty  much given up by the end of 6th as it was getting a bit ridiculous with all the rulebooks coming out. 7th just made it even worse. The hope with 8th is that it...

Laptop death
Just in time for Christmas, my laptop has decided to give up the ghost... so my apologies for the radio silence recently. I can't believe how expensive a new Mac would be... an Alienware top end gaming laptop is about half the price of the base level Macboo...

It is all-out Warfare today
Like a few other people on my blogroll, I went to Reading's annual gaming show, Salute, this morning. Given that it is about a mile from home, it would be daft not to. I nearly ended up helping out on the Modiphius stand, but one of their team ended up maki...
