So the slow boat from China has finally arrived! Okay, well it was from the UK, but still, my replacement struts have finally gotten here. I was a little disappointed that they did not replace the cap piece as that had gotten a bit damaged, but oh well, the one I have will still work. The real downside to this tale, is that they didn't offer any tips on how to put the darn thing together. So back to the drawing board.
I also need to decide if I'm going to go with 3rd party stands or not. I want to play with these darn things, and have to decide soon so I can base them. I think I said before that I'm looking at Corsec Engineering who makes pretty cool flight bases. They are steel rods so much more durable than the plastic ones you get with the fleets. Plus they screw in and out of the ships, so easy to take apart for transport.
Also, I've been looking over the new Ork releases for 40K. I love the orks for 40K and have a sizable army (unpainted of course). I like some of the stuff that is coming out and am eagerly awaiting the new book. Of course, GW's insane prices will keep me from getting most of it. It always comes down to "well I could sell X to pay for Y" but the problem is that X almost always has more value than Y due to the fact that I already own it, and if its GW's, then it already went up in value since I purchased it.
Oooo ooo ooo. I'm going to play Magic tonight! It is supposed to be D&D night, but our DM backed out even though we played it a freaking month and a half ago! So the rest of us are gathering (heh..gathering) together for a little sealed deck action with the new Journey to Nyx set. I haven't played in a while, and these guys are pretty competitive. Its all for fun and I get shiny new cards!
Till next time.
