It's been a while since I updated this, but you should see some regular posting coming soon.

First bit of news is that COWCON 2009 is booked in for the 17-18th of October. The player pack is mostly complete and should be out soon for some beta testing. The tournament will once again be 1750 points Warhammer 40,000 and run out of the YWCA Hall.

Secondly my Sisters of Battle have had a bit more work done to them and now meet the minimum three colours. Unfortunately I won't be able to do much with them for the next few months though as a short project has come up. Which leads me to the third point:

I've just joined in a Tale of Four Gamers for Warhammer Fantasy. Player will be required to paint 500 points each month for three months and play a couple of games. I've dusted off my Warriors of Chaos for this so will be posting some updates and pics soonish. So far I've only done undercoating but I'm hoping to get a unit of Chaos Knights finished by next weekend.

Recently I purchased a friend's Iyanden Eldar army, and should be taking delivery of it by the end of the month. This will go nicely with my Iyanden pirate army that I'm slowly accumulating models for. As a result of this, I'm now looking to sell my Tau army, all 3500 points of it. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Lastly, I've really started to lose faith in GW. The slowness at which codices/army books are released and their lack of errata has led me to look for another game system. I still intend to play GW games, but will be spending very little on new stuff apart from finishing off my current armies. As a result of this, I picked up a copy of the Flames of War 2.0 Rulebook off Ebay which should I get my grubby hands on in the coming week. At this point I won't yet be collecting any FoW but will have a look through the rules and chat with a couple of other club member to decide on an army and time period to collect.

So expect to hear more from me soon.
