GW Price Increase 05/31/10

Beware! the sky is falling, Brothers~

I communicate with quite a few online vendors that specialize in 40k,
and it would seem that Games Workshop is completely out of stock of
multiple kits.
A week ago I was not overly concerned by this news however, after GW
announced a price increase on most of their product that will take effect at the
beginning of June in Europe (May 31st state-side)- I was slightly

It would seem that certain kits (the Blood Angels Death Company for
example), are completely out of stock for retailers-

Of Blood and Blade: My Blood Angels 2k List

Death Company Artist Unknown

Here is my first Blood Angels (BA) list based on a 2,000 point force. I’m also working on a 1850, 1750, and 1500 point army as well. I’m going troop heavy, but may swap an assault squad for a Baal Pred. based on troop survivability as a whole. I’ve read other players classify the fifth edition (5E) as a finesse army- so I want to give myself a little room for mistakes.

Friendly Local Gaming Store (FLGS)

Do you have a FLGS that you like to support and frequent? Is it further from your residence than a less friendly or hospitable games shop? What is an FLGS? Well, let me explain!

 One of the first acronym I stumbled across while reading about table-top gaming was FLGS (FLAGS). I always read that acronym with a chuckle because there was a time that I wasn't sure what the "F" in FLGS represented, so I promptly associated it to my own, unique word...heh. Joking aside, I am very fortunate to have a gaming store close to home- and the owner and staff are actually friendly as well as a lot of fun. Olympic Cards and Comics (OCC) is owned and operated by "Gabby"- one of the coolest people I have had the opportunity to meet.

Choosing an Airbrush Part 2

In the market for an airbrush I narrowed my choices to a select few that are tailored toward models and model painting. I narrowed my list to six choices with a widely varying price point. The Badger 150 and the Paasche VL are both described as entry level airbrushes- great investments for their relative price! However, both of these brushes were siphon fed, whereas I want a gravity-fed airbrush. Iwata brand airbrushes became increasingly attractive to me the more I researched airbrushes. With sudden recollection, I dug up an old email from Brandon Palmer, of Gray Matter Musings fame.
