Hey guys! This is probably the worst gap in posts I’ve ever had! Not good! I’ve been super busy the last two weeks though, and now that I’m past everything, its nice to be finished. Lets recap, shall we? Over the last two weeks, I’ve: Completed my senior year of college Graduated college with a Bachelors of Art in Art Moved apartments in town and set up my studio again Got everything ready to go to Egypt in May I haven’t really posted about it yet, but Smells Like Wargaming will be on hiatus from May 13th to May 31st, as I will be in Egypt, studying the Arab Spring and visiting many of the ancient sites as a graduation present from my parents. Most of my clients have already been informed, and any new emails will be handled when I return. Going back though, it’s a great feeling to finally be graduated from college. I’ve got a lot more free-time now, which means more time for Smells Like Wargaming and more hours at the shop, which, in turn, allows me to pursue more vigorous and challenging projects. I’ve already got plans to finish my Chaos Space Marines for Tacticon in September, and I’ve got two other armies sitting on my shelf that need to get painted. Speaking of painted armies, I picked up a box of Gretchin with some Graduation money I received, as it looks like I’m now painting that Ork army I’ve had sitting around for a bit. Love the grots, they’re easily my favorite unit in the Ork codex! I’ve always been a fan of goblins in fantasy and sci-fi settings. My primary Magic deck is Goblins, grots are just hilarious, and anything goblin-related is just cool to me
So what is the legal fallout from the Faeit212 take-down?
Last night blogs Faeit 212 and Bell of Lost Souls went down. Both are powered by Blogger and at first this was believed to be an Blogger issue, however since then more has come to light when Faeit 212 was issued one of these:
Bell of Lost Souls and Faet212 have both gone down.
The last several codices have brought a power change to 6th ed; all of them are well balanced and do not scream face stomping. The several previous codices were a different bunch of animals; Grey Knights, Space Wolves, Blood Angels (back in 5th) and even Necrons. What I want to determine is what is best for the game, super powerful codices like ones we have had in the past or nice and neat balanced books? Super Powerful blow yo face off The powerful codices come as a continuous stream through out 5th ed. If I remember right the Imperial Guard kicked off the power band – Vendettas for 130 points, Manticores dropping multiple blasts, multi special weapon Veterans and a whole lot of other things. Space Wolves followed with their Long Fangs, cheap Grey Hunters and Rune Priests with mega powers. Then was the Blood Angel codex which brought cheap fast Razorbacks, fast Vindicators, feel no pain and furious charge bubble. Here is where it gets interesting; Dark Eldar were after Blood Angels and I know they can be pretty powerful with their billion poison shots and mega lance fire, but Dark Eldar are weak and anything can take them down. So while they are excellent at shooting I would say they are not as powerful as the others due to their survivability. I know I.G are weak, but their mass of tanks are not
Hi everyone, Once again I am back with another tutorial on demand.

Hi all I want to participate in Terminator armour challenge entry
Games Workshop legal are once again on the attack and this time Blight Wheel Miniatures receives a C&D from the GW head of legal over its SALUTE special mini – “The Mutant Komodo” This is the Mutant Komodo: And here is the art for the G.W Loxati: The G.W one looks like to have some bionic skull or just has some weird skull detail. On the skull is some kind of plummage as well. You’ve got claws on the palm and heels too. There’s some kind of gun hanging down from it’s chest too. Though I think both of them look like the below image, more so the Mutant Komodo, which in fact also takes it’s name from the Komodo Dragon in the picture below: In my opinion both have based their designs off the Komodo Dragon, which naturally would mean they look a like. But how can G.W drop a legal barrage on Blight when the idea for both of these models seem to be based off a real life animal – how can you copyright a design which is almost identical to a real life animal? The only difference is the Mutant Komodo has a bandola and even uses the Komodo name, the skull has some kind of hole on it but that’s about all I can see.. The G.W has additional claws, head detail, head plummage and an underslung ranged weapon.
Puppets War has released a new resin bike model that can stand in for a Space Marine biker. At $ 11.80, it costs about $ 3.20 less than a Games Workshop model.
