(something I posted on a facebook group I belong needs a bit of expounding, but is much an acknowledgement of WHY i have been so quiet of late.  NOTHING is motivating me toward the game anymore.  I am changing toward a hobby based dynamic though, and will begin once again to wax poetic...okay ramble incessantly...about my hobby.  there just may be a bit more grump for a while :-)  )
Other than the fact it is my favorite genre/universe to wargame in, I have come to a conclusion...

I have NOTHING positive to say (and would hesitate to go so far as to say 'am growing to detest') 6th edition 40k.

The current trends, direction and choices are frankly MORE jarring than the transition from 2nd to 3rd...more pervasively underhanded than 4th to 5th and have the potential to create a game more unbalanced (and ultimately more bland and unrewarding) as 4th ed.
This is the most ill-thought out and delivered edition/transition ever instituted by GW...and that is coming from a player who has stuck through this game, the price hikes and shennanigans that have been pulled on/over us since RT.

I can honestly say I felt MORE likely to have a rewarding and manageable/fair/balanced tournament experience at hobby geared 4e GT's than I do with the abomination under which we now play.
...that is all.

I am trying to 'be back', for those few who actually paid attention...but the 'spawn' has also been consuming my soul slowly.


  1. I feel largely the same. Most of my gaming group has fallen out of love with 40k and switched to Dust Warfare, which is quickly growing in popularity here in Indianapolis.

    Maybe you can take solace in painting some models?

  2. I am going to throw myself into that aspect, as much as the 18mo old will let me throw myself into anything!

    I was never much of a fan of the 'height' of 4e, and made it through...I'll make it through this bump.
    I'm still going to play in events, etc, but I'm just not going to go out of my way to make time for them anymore.

    I grabbed some X-Wing, and giving that a go.
    I have a metric arse ton of Flames of War, so I have that available.
    I've been looking at Dust, but with other minis games available to me, and limited time, I haven't taken that jump yet.

    I just had to vent, and I guess that's one of the reasons for this venue?

  3. and frankly, I'm an aged everything I say has to be taken with a grain of salt.

  6. I sure wish you would get out of this curmudgeon and get back to playing some 40k. We miss you here at ML and on the tournament scene ;) Regardless I have found that the more games that I've played the more second nature the changes have become and are far less devastating then first anticipated. Adapt and Overcome, Oh Yea! There are some positives since 6th Ed., faster FAQ releases, increased codex and model releases, the prices still suck but so does gas prices, food prices, S.S. tax increase and on and on and on! :)

  7. Stop, positive input does not compute...

    You must be exterminated, EXTERMINATED! :-D
