Anyway, I wanted to give everyone a quick heads up on what's been going on. Stelek recently created a forum for YTTH, and I've been quite active there the past couple days (besides Stelek, I've contributed the most, post-wise). Even prompted a special blog post regarding my question on why people are pooh poohing 10-man Warrior squads with Blaster/Splinter Cannon in a Raider. I'm still not sold, but I can see the point he is making there. Regardless, my "Venomwing" army isn't really concerned with it, as it is more of a sit back and shoot 'em type list. On that topic, the DE Codex review is nearly finished and should be up Monday evening or Tuesday sometime. To go with that, tactical information regarding some of those units will be expanded on.
I've also started building my new Warrior squads (two of them) and two Raiders. So far, while incredibly delicate, the sprues and models themselves are extremely detailed and well crafted. I'm quite pleased with them.
For the Black Templars players out there, we've got a few topics of interest. The first is in regards to the FAQ ruling regarding 'Go to Ground' and how 'Righteous Zeal' breaks us out of it. There are still opponents to this, so a full-blown discussion has broken out about it. Hopefully this topic will settle most of the issues that are presented and bring a larger set of consistency for the Black Templar community. Either position could argue successfully against an opponent now that the FAQ ruling is out, but its more of the specific procedure of the rule we're trying to work out. More of an internal thing so everyone is on the same page. Bigdunc puts down his thoughts on the subject on his blog. Most of what he says has good merit, so reading the article is worthwhile. I might do the same here on Implausible Nature, so there is a permanent reference point available for readers to find. But no promises.
In addition, the discussion has started regarding the Black Templars Drop Pods, and more specifically, the Defensive Drop Pod list I support here on IN. The B&C thread containing this discussion will help unveil the "mysteries" of the army and how it works. I'm not going to sit here and say that I'll win anyone over with my points, but at least they'll be more knowledgeable about the archetype. That is the goal, education. I try to provide it and let people make their own minds up. That's all I can ask for! This topic will be a nice warm-up to refine my "Big Three" articles I'll be putting out next month.
With that, time for bed. I'm exhausted and its been a very long day. :(
