About damn time for something new!

The Venture Bros. Halloween special, which seems to be called "A Very Venture Halloween", will air at 11:30pm on Sunday, October 28th, so mark your calendars!

This still best expresses how I reacted to this news

If this is true then awesome! If it is anything like the Venture Christmas episode, then double awesome!

G.W.'s lost "City of the Damned" might have been found.

While doing some late summer or very early fall cleaning I discovered my Mordheim rulebook. Damn that was a game that went away too soon. Just another of G.W.’s products that wasn’t widely approved by gamers and so it was forgotten.

I only ever got to play three games and didn’t push it with my gaming circle, but maybe I should have. I actually bought he set back in the day for the terrain and models. We were heavy D&D gaming then and the Mordheim set came with just so much stuff and wasn’t overly expensive.

A good geek week

The last seven days have made for a pretty stellar geek week.

Last Tuesday was the DVD release of Cabin in the Woods, a new favorite of mine!

This week is the DVD release of Avengers, and we all should know how awesome that movie is!

After a break more 4th ed D&D

Tom: “What is 7+ 4?”
Mike: “Tom’s an engineer.”
The best line from out 4th ed D&D game Saturday night.  

We had taken a month plus unscheduled hiatus from gaming, and it seems it was missed.
I there out some stuff to challenege and thankfully, the damage output was not too awful, because the guys just couldn’t hit these things. I discovered that armor class 30 is a bit of a stretch for the group, not unhittable, but nowhere near an easy target either.

So we have all seen the new Chaos pics and......

.....color me meh!


Ok, the Dark Apostle is sound in theory, but the model is way too busy for me. We have parchment billowing, a giant halo thing, fancy books on the base, and crazy armor details. Just pick one or two and run with it, don't try to incorporate all this stuff. Then there is the opera signer pose and face. Save time and money,make/convert your own. 

Hooray Chaos gets a Techmarine and this doesn't impress. Maybe it is a bad pic? I was always wanting a cool Iron Warriors legion and a Techie leading them, might happen, but not with this guy. Well at least not so far. There is some hope, or I have some hope, for him, if there is a better photo.

Non-Necron Necrons

I've never bought or seen any of the Puppets War stuff up close, but  maybe I will.

They have released some interesting models that I would easily use to fill my Necron ranks.

The most wonderful time of the year!

There are two games that are the sweetest, winning the championship and wining the first game of the season. Hell, I think winning the first game might be more important. It sets a small tone and kills all that build up that has been going on since the end of last season. That is what Denver did last night and it was a relief for me. Plus they put Ben "I touch girls in public bathrooms" Roethlisberger in his place again.
