Mkerr and I are back from Seattle and settling back into things. We had a great time at the Bellevue Bunker and wanted to say thanks to all the staff who were just great. Chaosgerbil showed up and got to look through the Macharian Crusade book and wowed us with his 4 BOXES OF CHAOS SPAWN!!! I’m not sure what he has in mind, but if you guys ever need a rampaging horde of dozens of spawn to smote your enemies…he’s your man!
Anyway, onto the daily into.
Following up on the Laser Pointer, its definitely a laser, not a LED. The laser works in such a way that when it appears there’s a cross-hair; and while odd looking it also has a purpose. The idea is that if any part of the cross hair is obscured on the target model then you get a cover save. The Laser image can be seen at distances of 10-15 meters in low light and is easily visible on a tabletop.
We have also heard of the recall of the new GW “flamer airbrush”. Apparently there is some issue with a plastic hose that can crack under extended use, and they have been pulled. We have no info on future reintroduction plans.
Latest Future Releases Rumors
We are now hearing that the Space Wolves are not scheduled for the DEC/JAN slot, but have no additional info. This could just be a slight re-jiggering of the release schedule, as many sources say they are well underway.
2nd Wave of Orks are in JAN (Zagstruk and Co.)
2nd Wave of Daemons are in March (rumored to be plastic Plaguebearers)
Imperial Guard is tentatively scheduled for May next year
~Standard Caveats on the release schedule rumors (as always). Mkerr and I had a great 5th edition game up at the bunker (my foot eldar > IG in centaurs), but now that we are really getting a feel for 5th, the floodgates will soon be opening. Mkerr is just bursting with his latest set of TACTICAS for 5th that sound both awesome and full of dirty tricks. Expect those to start rolling in here soon.
