In Space only Chaos can hear you scream!

Battlefleet Gothic is inbound to Galaxy in Flames early June!

My buddy is coming home on leave from the military and has a hankering to play some BFG. Oddly enough the last time I played BFG is right before he was heading out to Germany 3 years ago.

The really kool thing about BFG is that it is one of the more reasonable GW Specialist games. Most of the boxes have not had large price increases since the initial release, shocking! The blister packs have gone up 6 or 7 bucks in 12 years, but that is still not horrible considering that this is GW.

The above pic is of some of my Chaos fleet taken last year when I was thinking about diving back into gothic. The strange thing is that BFG was what I was going to revive just prior to developing Killzone. I sure did end up making the right choice in the end!

The ships were painted in 2000 shortly after the release of the game. I chose the scheme because I wanted a generic color scheme and I always had a thing for the Gamilon Empire ships in Starblazers.

I’d love to share some more pics but my camera has died and gone to digital heaven. I’ll be picking up a replacement ASAP.

Games Workshop in Ruins!

My buddy just sent me pics of the ruin that was built when we worked together at GW. It contains a corpse for everyone of the hobby centers staff members. The patrons of our shop absolutely loved the building. We hated to send it down to LA, in the end we should have kept it for ourselves.

This building went down in infamy after it was built and sent down to LA for Gamesday 2004. It was deemed inappropriate and was stomped to death by the staff of the LA Battle Bunker. It got the entire staff of our store a verbal thrashing for being inappropriate and not fostering the proper creativity in the hobby. It sure did make us northern Cali guys despise the ones from down south. So goes life!

No matter the sorted history I still think it was a shame that this creative ruin was destroyed.

Edit: I'd like to give a shout out to Ryan, John, Steve and Joe; those were the days guys!
