Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK.. (Takes deep breath)
Games day.. whew... 6 1/2 hour drive,
good times had by all anyways although my ears are a bit bloody from all the WAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHHH! ing... Don't have all my pictures organized yet but will post em when I get the time so for now, text only I guess...
The tables were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. that said, I got a few games in and participated in the Big Battle this year using the new cityfight terrain.. damn. those models are awesome.
Also got a little 1 on 1 conversation in with Graham McNeil a Developer who gave me a bit of info on whats happening with the unforgiven. Apparently its early next year when any of the releases are coming, He said it was a major screw up in 2nd edition when they published the codex and said "The dark angels are keeping secrets" and then spelling out in detail exactly what all of those secrets are. The new codex is going to be like the black templars, don't need the space marine codex anymore and there will be an upgrade sprue box like the templars. He confirmed that they are definately downplaying the Native american theme, and going with the more monkish theme. The Deathwing short story is going to be a legend of the chapter that may or may not have happened, from what I gathered in our 15-20 min conversation basically the new codex is mainly going to add a lot more mystique to the DA while really not going into too much detail as to what ACTUALLY happened. New Character models are planned of course along with a bunch of new rules, according to Graham that there were going to be more defined roles for the Deathwing and the Ravenwing, but he wouldn't go into detail on them. Thats about all I could drag out of him but at leat there is a timeframe, I had to bug the guy for 10 min to get a ballpark figure there... so Early 2007
Golden demon models were awesome, lost of detailed work there, will post pictures when I'm not supposed to be working.
Conversion contest was pretty fun, although if you ever go, be sure to be there for the last session basically you got to keep as many sprues as you wanted after the session ends. (I personally have like 3 unsorted bags of them at home right now. ..)
I spent way too much money at forgeworld, and the lines there were CRAZY... you moved about 10 feet in 20 min. so go early.
I'll go into detail later as well but that should keep you in for the moment, feel free to ask whatever as well...
Native American Theme? I don't think i have ever heard of the dark angels being referred to as Native American, i have always thought of them as being monks what with thier long robes and strict traditions.Originally Posted by urbanknight
guess you never read "Deathwing"....
Anyhow I will be posting my pics here http://www.urbanknightdesigns.com/ga...avId=x0c27cd29
It's god to hear that they're putting a lot of attention into them. I'm sad t hear that they won't come out until next year, but I guess the non-imperium armies deserve some attention.
The Native american theme was baasically the whole thing with wearing feathers on deathwing armour and the character's names (Azrael means "Wiesel Fierce").
New rules sounds cool, the more complicated, the more reason to play with them more.
Cheers, and thanks for the review.
any hint of eldar dex? supposed to have eldar dex preview there.
Nice photos on your website too! Some of those table look fantastic! Love the "Oil Rig" platform one.
I like the idea of the upgrade sprue. I don't wanna replace all my models:cry:
The April GD will have the preview. If IRC it is Toronto.Originally Posted by chrishin
