Huge props to the 40k Blog and podcast communities

You guys are Awesome! I really appreciate the outpouring of support in this dark time for me. I am very touched by all the well wishes and offers to help with replacement, you have rekindled my faith in the gaming community.

Ya'll have helped me through this bleak day and gave me many chuckles to lighten my mood!

An additional big thank you to my buddy Magilla Gurilla from Tabletop War and his efforts to coordinate the replacement for the lost minis. He immediately jumped into action taking my story to our friends in the Podcast community posting a call for help on the Independent Characters and 11th Company forums. I have also gotten the support of my friends at the Gamers Lounge and Dice Like Thunder podcasts.

Looks like I will be able to recoup most of my losses in plastic through your generosity.

Again I am extremely grateful for the support.

Lucky for me I decided not to rebase the Sorcerer Xusia or the DP Titus the Butcher, so at least I am rebooting the project with two fully painted and converted leaders!

Fear not the Soul Reapers will return and sally forth from the Storm of Souls to wreak havoc on the tabletops once again! I have put too much blood, sweat and tears into the army and mini-dex to let this sort of thing derail me. I am a wargamer and that will never change.

Sometime tomorrow I will put up my plan for rebuilding the Soul Reapers.

Edit: Thanks to Menzies the artist behind the Soul Reapers for this great missing poster, that gave me a good giggle with my morning coffee!


  1. It's great to hear Jim!

    We can rebuild them... We can make them Bigger, Better... Stronger!

    Heh, Congrats and I can't wait to see!

  2. keep an eye on ebay. Most stolen stuff of this type end up there, at least in the UK>

  3. Nice to hear that something good has come out of this. It is always great to see members of our small online community getting together to help others.


  4. Great to hear, Jim. This really is a great community

  5. Found out about this on Dark Future, If you contact me I can offer to let you use my distributer account and buy any new figures at my cost. Its a significant discount.


  6. Just wait till I get a Sally Struthers segment going "Won't you Save the Soul Reapers?"!

  7. BigJim,

    How can we resist helping a guy like you- you've been so generous and fantastic in growing the community!

    Watch for more awesome to come.

  8. As a lazy sort of guy, if there are some official lanes to helping out, can you drop us a link?

  9. Thanks for all the great comments and support!

    Lord Shaper, 10 kool points for the 6 million dollar man reference, I loved that show when I was a kid!

    Christopher, I will keep that in mind, thanks for the offer.

    Neil, that would be funny as hell!

    Inner Geek, you can contact me directly through at galaxynflamesblog @ gmail, or Magilla through the link provided in the above post.


  10. I know you went and got them taken to avoid playing me. This was the only way we could make sure that this battle finally takes place!

  11. Wow, Carl what a low blow.

    I was just trying to save you the embarrassment of losing yet another game!

    I will gladly whoop your Jive Turkey butt as soon as I get the new minis build and primered!
