Yet Another Really Pathetic Excuse


Soooo... legs didn’t get done before Comic-Con.  Or since then.  They’re still in pieces on a TV tray here in my office. 

Comic-Con was amazing, as always, and I’ve just been slammed with work since then.  Started the new Ex book, revisions on The Fold, plus I’m working on a semi-secret project that I’m very excited about and hoping I can talk about in a few days.  Plus there was some extremely painful jaw surgery.

So instead of playing 40K—or even just working on the hobby side of it—I’ve been forced to sit here at my desk and remember when I used to have time to play almost every week.  Which, granted, was way back when.

If memory serves, it was around the time that Games Workshop just gave Codex: Assassins away for free with White Dwarf one month.  Seriously.  No extra cost, they just printed it up with a solid cover and included it in the mailing.  It was a thank you to all their loyal customers—“here’s a freebie from us.  It’s only four models anyway, it’d be silly to charge for it. We'd look like mercenary bastards.”

Anyway, enough nostalgia.  I’m going to try to get the legs done soon so I can move on to guns and maybe even start another project before the end of the year.

Yeah, we’re far enough in that it’s almost the end of the year.

Many, many thanks for your patience.


  1. Just wanted to say, don't worry, we're still following, and we love your hard work! I used your techniques to build a vindicator, and will be doing a baneblade eventually, keep it up!

    1. Thanks, Perryk. It feels good knowing people are getting something out of this. :)

  2. Oh man, over the last couple months I've been getting back into 40K (dusted off the old Blood Angels and Imperial Guard armies), and as I read blogs and news about things like "dataslates," the memory of that free codex is one I cannot get out of my head.

    They're $50 now? What the what?!

    1. Yeah, I know. I've got to admit, one of the things that's been keeping me from this is just a complete lack of enthusiasm for the game right now. Well, not so much the game but just the blatant attempts by the company to squeeze every last penny from the players.

      Granted... that makes this blog more important than ever, I guess.
