I had to swing by the regional police HQ to get a background check done and saw one of the coolest things I have seen in a very long time.



The angle is a bit bad, but across the hood of the car they had written "Serving With Pride."

Now that is policing done right!

Nice. I've still got a picture of the gAy-TM that was in Auckland my last visit back to the colonies.

Thought you guys might be interested to see what I am playing at my local GW.  These series of quotes were taking from the Facebook group associated with the store, but we are just in the process of planning it right now.  I have even brought up the idea with the manager about possibly looking into getting some GW support, maybe even some White Dwarf coverage.

Anyways, to the epic madness!

Just wanted to post an update on this one:

WE'VE DONE IT!!!

Every legion of Space Marines have at least one person on board to play! You know what that means?

IT'S ON!!!!

I'm out right now, but keep tuned because I'm going to start getting this glorious game organized in the next couple of days!

I got my last two legions confirmed this afternoon; having been waiting on Salamanders and Raven Guard.  Now to hammer out the details and set a date / points value.

The part about the wall and the ocean was very amusing in particular.  Thanks for posting that.

I got my last two legions confirmed this afternoon; having been waiting on Salamanders and Raven Guard.  Now to hammer out the details and set a date / points value.

The store manager just posted his own guidelines for the game:

Quote
Also we are going to do a 16x4 I think. I might set up a camera to constantly film and then edit later for the highlights.

But a few ground rules for this many people and filming.

ABSOLUTELY NO SWEARING.

You'll screw the video up. And make me angry.

No being anti social to customers walking around watching. Talk to them. Explain. Show off.

No proxies. Do this right. Counts as is fine.

No non GW.

I want shouting. I want the heavens to rain fire. I want you guys to lose and be happy to lose because you're taking part in something extremely cinematic.

Guys, we were just the number 1 store in North America for new stores for December. Christmas season. Let's close out the 2016 fiscal year (which ends in may) with the biggest battle a GW has seen in a long long time.

I posted a poll in the store's Facebook group to get some feedback, and it looks like everyone is on board with 1500pts per person.  I tallied up the number of people per side, and it looks like the game will be around 19,500pts per side at least.  I may just round it up to 20,000 to have a nice round number.

Really not sure how you'll be able to play a proper game without swearing. Seems unnatural.

I know I'm not the only one who is going to struggle with that one.

Actually, the community at this place is very open and welcoming with customers.  It's not like the old GW stores which were literally holes in the wall tossed into the darkest corner of the mall.

Sounds awesome, GML. Hope everyone actually carries through with their promise, would hate to see someone drop out in the last moment.

Also, Pax: that was *hilarious*. Best impersonation of Trump I've seen yet. Tremendous.

I didn't really think otherwise GML it just struck me as funny that the store owner saw it necesary to post a guideline to ensure that you were all nice to the customers.

We have a date set, we have point values agreed upon, and we have at least 9 people per team.

It's on!

D & Diesel

I also learned, that Diesels Character in "The last Witchhunter" is based upon a 800 years old Witchhunter called Kaulder, Diesel used to play in D&D as a teenager, which is really cool  :D

Now where to find a film studio to produce the story of a dwarfen monk with a tragic backstory, who thwarted evil countless times while getting roaring drunk (i never said he was a good monk)?!

Every year we get our geek on and go down to LA for Gallifrey One, the Doctor Who convention. While ribbons are the done thing we always like to take some badges down as well to give away. A local friend does the art from our suggestions. This was one of this years: Special Weapons Pool.

That feeling when you share a picture of your latest paint job with the official Warhammer 40,000 Facebook group and they respond!

Now, I am sure they respond in a similar manner to most of the images they receive, but damned if it doesn't put a smile on your face!
