Some Ramblings

I will continue my journey towards the forces of Nurgle shortly. I'm thinking about those early days, and I want to organize my thoughts on that a bit more before I post on that again. However, I just wanted to post a few of my ramblings on a few topics...

First, I am currently doing a new Dark Eldar force. Yes, I still have Chaos (I will NEVER abandon the Plague Marines or Chaos in general). However, with the new DE, I did indeed grab them again. My friends (and my wife too- she's so understanding about my nerdiness) bought me a ton of DE for my birthday and holidays and stuff. Just some thoughts on the army...

I'm thrilled with the models. The army is incredible. It may be the best looking army GW has ever produced. The warriors are amazing, the wyches are fantastic. The Raiders and Ravagers are incredible. I love the plastic Hellions. The Incubi are evil looking (though they're tough to put together). The ONLY things I don't like are the warp beasts and the Grotesques.

Strategy wise, they are challenging, though a bit more forgiving than before. I've played a few games, and the wyches are brutal. It's tough, since a ton of things (Talos, etc) aren't out just yet (soon!), so I can't quite see how it'll all fit together yet. I'm excited to play with them though, that's for sure.

In other ramblings, the summer movie season is upon us. There are a TON of movies I'm interested in this summer. Thor already was very good, and my wife and I enjoyed PotC too (forget the critics and such, it's just a fun movie, no more and no less). I'm very excited for XMen, Super 8, Transformers 3, Captain America, and more. I'm going to spend a bit of time at the movies.

Last, I will be writing some book reviews on here. I read many books, but I'll just focus on 40K books. I'm reading Blood Gorgons now. It started off poorly, but it got really, really good. I hope it ends well. I'll review it when I'm done.
