The time has come….for me to continue my vintage book collections into 2nd Ed. The greatest Ed ever, because that’s when I cut my teeth properly and clearly that therefore makes it the best and if you disagree you’re wrong and silly and you’ve not though it through at all.

I’ve already got the Imperial Guard book, and I’m presently stalking a copy of Codex Eldar on the eBay. Reckon I’ll make like a Pathfinder and do what I can to snipe it.

I’ve no particular plan to buy them in any particular order. Rather I’ll see what’s what around each payday, and if I can get a good price on a book I don’t have, I’ll go for it. Though I’ll probably shelf them in publication order.

I may even rope my friend into a couple of games for old times sake.

A 2nd ed Tyranid Codex is the only one I'm missing from my set of Tyranid ones. At some stage I'll hunt one down to complete the set!

The Tyranids one is the only one I have for 2nd edition (when I started) Its a great one too, I love it!


As far as purchase, I got the Custodes book and cards last weekend (nice that the points value is already outdated), resisted getting more models so far as I paint what I have and try to not get sidetracked!

Bought a box of Outcasts. Said they were on 'pre-order'. Very interested to see whether the store can get them, of if they'll have to get me 3 boxes of the single sprue. It didn't say 'Sold Out' like other thing that are 100% gone, so who knows?

Also got the Gravis Captain, 'cause that Chainsword version looks ace. Decided not not to get the Ancient.

A Union Brigade box for Black Powder Epic Battles (Warlord Games).

A couple of us are considering trying this game.
So we figure we'll start really small, invest $30some bucks, & split this box.
Comes with 300 infantry, 3 cannon, & 3 HQ guys. That'll be enough to give it a demo.

So I bought the box & another guys going to pick up a rulebook.

That's a good way to approach it. I looked at the main box set for Black Powder Epic and I was just overwhelmed thinking of trying to paint that all, not even knowing if it was something worthwhile.

They were not willing to substitute the Outcast box for 3 Hive Scum boxes. Waaaah!



So they cancelled the order and refunded me in store credit. Guess that's where I'm getting the Eldar/Chaos box now...

Cartaventura: Oklahoma.

It was only £12 and apparently its a card-based western in the tradition of "choose your own adventure". Having finished but not distributed a similar western game for android, I couldn't help but snap it up. Its also in a very small box so it seems ideal for travelling.

Casual gaming, mostly solo-coop these days.

Eldritch Omens - Turns out, despite its UK and US price, it was not AUD$340 as I predicted, but AUD$290. Still stupidly expensive for a tiny amount of models*.

Re-added the Primaris Captain from my cancelled order last week, and threw in a Hexmark Destroyer as it was on clearance, so got it for 25% off.

A discount compared to what? Their eventual separate release, where they'll be even more of a a rip-off? Doesn't stop them from being a rip-off now. They're just less of a rip-off than they will be.

Just took money and never shipped, even stuff in stock, and don't respond to any communication channel. We'll see once the Paypal claims time out uncontested and automatically rule my way (gods I hope that's still how it works) if there's money in their account for refunds, in which case they all died and the system is still running by itself (had this happen once before), or there isn't and they really took the money and ran.

PayPal will refund you, then chase them for the debt, if their PP account is empty. If that’s any comfor?

Honestly it sounds like it deserves a thread of its own, scams/issues like that deserve highlighting in public.

And PP are generally pretty pro-customer in how they handle things. Certainly if you've presented your case sensibly, calmly and well and if they've not countered then there's every chance PP will refund you and then chase them. If they are trading through PP then that will be a big blow to them to get refund requests like that.


Also really strange if they are not communicating. I can understand listing stuff in stock and not shipping (eg waiting for the whole order to be in stock or their stock on website isn't tied to their inventory system perfectly); but no communications or replies or anything is a big red flag.

Got myself the WD with the Crusher Stampede rules, a single pot of pain and a white primer can.

I don't plan to run the Crusher army in the very short term (and with the codex coming soon-ish, probably not before the book is released unless an opportunity came for such a game), but for the curiosity of it mostly. The rules seems good, and hey, good Tyranids contend is very few and far between so Imma at least give that a read!

If it's still compatible with the new book, great, if not, no biggie, a single WD in probably 15 years isn't so bad and there's the rest of the magazine to read too
