Kickstarter Shoutout: Sedition Wars!

Well with about four days left I'm going to pimp this a little bit too. This is a kickstarter project for a board game with over 50 Miniatures that Studio McVey and Rob Baxter (from PP) are putting out. It looks amazing and I figured I'd spread the word in case you missed this.

If you're not familiar with Mike McVey he used to be a big time painter at GW for years and his studio has been creating (with the help of some amazing sculptors) some truly great mini's for the last few years. You can find his blog here: http://www.studiomcvey.com/

This is also a kickstarter which, if you aren't familiar with it, is basically an crazy pre-order that nets you tons of extras. It's the only Kickstarter I've supported as Mike and his wife Ali have an excellent reputation in the community and to be honest the models are so pretty I couldn't help myself.

6th Edition, Army Building, and Travel 40k

I know I've been quite lately. It's equal parts busy life and the pre-new edition apathy that sometimes overcomes us.

Let's start by saying I'm super stoked for 6th edition. Now that we have a pretty solid release date (6/30 or 7/6) it's just a matter of waiting to see what 6th is going to be like. It does make it a bit pointless to talk about tactics and strategies though.

This does leave me a little light in the drive department for building and painting though. I don't want to commit to to many new models or conversions if whatever I decide to play with might become much less viable but at the same time I'm a bit of a hobby nut. So where does this leave me?
