Meat for Meta: Baltimore Games Day

You know what beats cosplay? It would be frakking awesome miniatures. GW has recently posted winners of the painting contests held at their latest Games Day.  The over all winner was some kid named Dylan Gauker which I am sure is some idiot savant, because no one that young should be that good. It also makes me question whether GW should be giving out swords larger then their winners. Here take a look for yourself. If you want to see more of wonder boy past masterpieces here is a good link. It is too bad this guy only seems to like fantasy settings. As for some of the other winners, here are five that really stood out for me. This is my favorite, for the action presented. I love the sacred tau in the back. I am sure it did not win because of the cotton ball vomit everywhere. I love Abbadon with this desiccated face, really creates a great contrast with the rest of the model. Great job. I have to admit I am getting tired of current eldar vechule paint jobs. I truly think they are easier then say an ork truck because of the flat surfaces you can work with. Really plays into the hands of  artists with experience in traditional mediums. Sick, Sick, and more Sick. I love how each one has its own personality. The blue layering is just pimptastic. If you...

Meat for Meta: Just say No…to Cosplay

I want everyone to make a pact with me, SAY NO TO COSPLAY. I am sorry, but 40k is neither an avatar based mmo nor does it have animated characters with big eyes. I call on everyone to leave the cosplay to professionals; undersexed Trekkers, Booth Babes, Renfaire freaks, WoW retards, and androgynous Asians. I would prefer you finish painting your armies, then you devote time to sewing. I would rather you buy modeling supplies then fabric. These are just some reasons not to cosplay in 40k. I know why you do it though, let me explain why you have to stop. I know you feel like your special. You think you are taking the hobby to the next level. In truth you are simply going for attention. You do not care about a negative or positive responses, you just want someone to notice. Sadly, though your stuck in a world where being a geek is now cool. You used to get a curious look by busting out a figure, now people just walk by. So you try to turn back the clock to a time and place where jocks would throw crap for just pulling out a magic deck. I am sorry those times are gone. Warhammer is an international recognized brand; video games to even a shout out on SNL, 40k is pretty mainstream. Try not to...

Baltimore Games Day 09

All the way in Maryland, Games Workshop little shindig known as Games Day was held in Baltimore last week. It is a chance for GW and fans to get together and embrace their love for all things Warhammer. This year was no exception. There was no great announcements, but there was some great models and terrain showcased at the event. Here is a sample of my favorites. The Ork Hulk has been making the rounds lately, last seen at Adepticon. I find the hulk super rad, but the guys that made it better got paid. They have way too much free time otherwise. The guys surrounded the hulk kinda reminded me of something… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihsSmJNsDX8 If you want to see more fun stuff from Games Day there is a great site that has over a hundred pictures from this year event....

Meat for Meta: Just what we need…

It has been brewing for a bit now, rumors of a new race for Warhammer Fantasy or Warhammer 40k. Word has it that development has just started, so we are looking at least a 3 year process. With that in mind, I image the release will be timed with a new rule set for whatever system GW has in mind. The major news with this rumor, is the army will be non human, I believe we are looking at a brand new race not based on previous fluff. Still as is customary, forums across the webaverse are making wishes for old armies to be brought back from the dead. This happening I highly doubt, we have an emphasis on new, not redone or expanded. If a non human race were redone that leaves very few options, none of which GW has given any inclination for reexamining e.g. Squats or Chaos Dwarves. What is GW logic for a non Human race; Space Marines are the best sellers, where Tau, Necron, and Dark Eldar are some of the worst sellers. Unless the plan is to package them with Marines at launch like Black Reach. What upsets me about this rumor if true, is GW devoting resources once again, away from their current armies and into something completely new. With these hard economic times they should be doubling down on their existing...

Best of 40k Internet: Terrain of the Gods

What I am about to post is almost two years old, but worth reliving. I am talking about an epic display of craftsmanship by 40k nerds par excellence. A whole city scape for all your toys. Only people that would be stuck under nightfall for most of year would have the time to pull off this masterpiece. There is a catch, but I will not spoil it yet, just take it all in. I am not even going to comment on that guy with the red hair besides two words “Mad Scientist”. The catch with this whole thing, is while these are 40k players it is for a music video by the defunct Emo Rock outfit called Strata from Northern California. I find it strange that a Swedish production company makes a video for a California band, but hell I have no idea how these things work. Here is the video in question that uses this set to great effect. You might want to put the sound on mute the song is very whiny designed to play to the fat misery chick crowd. I really cannot see why this band never made it… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nsCc6XnM3c If you want to learn more about the builders that put it together here is a link to the original post. Buried in the post is another project by one of the participants, which is...
