Well, as I predicted, it seems Games Workshop is reaching back out to us with a new Campaign. Centered around the Dark Vengeance set, it's a low points event for some fairly casual play. However, it's still in beta.
Well, after having some time to digest the new Space Marine codex, I've decided that it's value can best be ascertained by looking backward to the 5th edition book first. To better see where we're going, it's important to know where we've been. So, with that said, let's jump in and have a look.
I'm gonna run down through some key points that interested me as I did in Let's Read Sixth Edition and I'll probably be even more direct than I had been there. These are just observations that I've made, myself. How useful they may be to you, if at all, may vary. With that in mind, let's have a look at the outside of the book.
The little blurbs we heard about this game months ago have finally turned into something altogether more tangible. Today we have an announcement trailer for the game that shows off something reminicient of Chaos Gate and XCom. I can't wait to see more!

The gentlemen over at Frontline Gaming and TABLEWAR have just kicked off a fantastic new KickStarter. They've unveiled a new product called Mega Mat. These are mats made of mouse pad material that have detailed terrain printed on top of them. Not only do they resist sliding and wrinkling, but they're also very water resistant as well! These are the perfect topper for every wargamers' table. Check out some more details below and be sure to hop on their KickStarter, as well.
Here, I have my last recorded game with 5th edition Space Marines. Dustin and I played this match on the day we had a TV pilot recorded at The Haven. Unfortunately, it's not yet been picked up as far as I know. But, here's our fight anyway. This was, as you can tell some time ago now, so my summations will be brief based on what I remember.
