Well crap, now what

So I started the blog.  I guess I'm supposed to talk about Warhammer 40k or something along those lines.  I'll probably get more into the regular routine in the next day or two, but I'll start with that new Grey Knights codex.

The new GK codex is loaded with a craptonne of new units and stuff for those deprived GK players.  I mean, shit, before hand you had 3 options for GKs.  Terminators, normal doods, or normal dood squad that got to carry some extra special weapons.  Now there are like.. 15 different GK options from techmarine to librarian.  It's pretty awesome and I definitely plan to take full advantage of the new system.  The inquisitorial part of the codex is also beefed up a bit - the new inquisitorial henchmen options are much improved upon in this new codex, and lifts the limit on the number of each type of henchmen you want to use.

I'll talk more about the codex and some cheesy army lists I'm working on later.

As for current Warhammer 40k book of the week - I'm re-reading Dan Abnett's The Founding.  I forgot how great it was since I last read it a few years ago.  It's the first omnibus (which means set of 3 books for all you noobs) in the Gaunt's Ghosts series.  Pick it up from your local Borders or something next time you get a chance.  Definitely worth it.
