Was just reading some rumors about the next edition of 40k....random charge distances...really wtf! One of the good things about 40k has always been how different it was from its fantasy counterpart. Why don't they just go ahead and give Orcs, Elves, and Undead guns? Oh wait...

So I am sitting here at the beginning of a new day of vacation while the fam prepares for tourist battle, reflecting on my war gaming choices. Let me say that I love the idea and fluff behind Warmachine and Hordes, but the games themselves tend toward the formulaic and rote side. The games don't last very long, and the idea of a mass force against another slugging it out just isn't there for me. My other option is Games Workshop. Every time I have invested money or thought into something GW related, they come along and fuck it up. Every time. They either change the rules, add a new edition invalidating what I own, power creep something so that playing isn't fun, or just out and out rape my wallet. GW is the granddaddy game company for a reason though...solid rules, over complicated rules that make sense to only a few (whfb, I'm looking at you) but with beautiful models, and good fluff/feel. Thats the end of this rant/thought circle jerk. May your dice cause your opponents fits!
