As always I’ve had a busy week, working 6/7 and keeping up with the home chores leaves little time for tin soldiers and rolling dice. I did get in my bi-weekly Gorkamorka game, and didn’t get to kill the Deff Dread (lost the objective to a 13 year old ;o( ) but had a lot of fun with all the guy’s at the table (we tend to play with 4 instead of 2) And the other thing I found some time for is this month’s White Dwarf. I was looking forward to this issue as I wanted to compare metal against resin fine cast. Know what the deal is all about …
I’m not seeing this as a genuine article in my page count, there are a few words from designers, painters, … but I missed the point, the actual information. We all know it’s a great product and detail is a lot better but do we need 14 pages to tell us that?

This month was (for me) one of the least so far. It had a lot of commercial stuff on the “Citadel Finecast” models and then some more product review on the new Dark Eldar and Tomb King models. Tactica are always handy but I lacked some serious hobby stuff. I hope next month will see some more articles and less commercials.
