Happy 2014 everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years Day. So it;s a new year, with so much potential. There couldn't be a better time to announce changes to the blog. I can assure you each one has a positive outcome.
First off, I will be reducing the number of posts, from three per week to two. I'm doing this for a number reasons. As some of you know, I am at university currently, in my third year. This is easily the most intense year of my life. And as a result of the heavy workload, I have less time to dedicate to war gaming. which in turn leads to less to talk about. However, each post will be more detailed than normal, if I'm doing fewer posts, I have more time overall to go over and add to the remaining ones. So whilst I am cutting the quantity, the quality of the writing should hopefully improve, as I dedicate more time to each post. I plan to post every Tuesday and Saturday, so it's only the Thursday posts that will go.
As well as this, I plan to start doing news posts. These posts will announce upcoming events events, as well as new product releases. I will try to include pictures, as the companies I've spoken to have granted me permission to use their images. They will, for the most part, be bits suppliers, though anyone who has released a game could be covered.
I also want to do more tutorials and reviews. Last year I got good feedback from the few that I did, so I aim to create even more to help you all build, paint or game. On the reviews side of things, I plan to review more products, ideally those from small or emerging bits and models producers.
If all goes well, I'll be developing two of my more recent projects, my small Bolt Action army, and the Avenged, my entry into the Path to Damnation campaign. I quite enjoy Bolt Action, it is a refreshing change from 40k and I'm slowly getting addicted. So expect to see a few more articles on the game, my army, and maybe even a battle report or two if I find a willing opponent.
The Avenged started off as a small project last month, built specially for the Path to Damnation campaign, which begins in a few weeks. I've grown to like the concept, the existing models, and the paint scheme. So perhaps this small detachment will become a small army in the near future. It will take on a different style of play to my Thousand Sons, as I'll be using units such as Warp Talons, Chosen, Noise Marines and some of the other Daemon Engines.
These new changes will take place on Tuesday 21st January, as I have a two-week work placement coming up next week. Again, have a great new year, make 2014 a good one!
