I MEAN WHAT THE HELL!!!
First off, I've been focusing on the Dark Angels, grabbing time whenever I can to paint them up and develop a workable list.
Second, in between painting sessions I've been riffling the pages of the Tau and man oh MAN do I like what I see! I'm not so captivated by Voltron or the new flyers, but I'm very interested in building a more infantry based list.
Third, Eldar. Picked up the latest White Dwarf and went through it yesterday.
I must have missed out on the whole giant robot fanboy thing as a kid. I mean, I watched Battle of the Planets and Voltron like any red-blooded American (uh) kid! I had a shipping crate packed with whatever Micronauts or Shogun Warriors I could get my hands on, but the mystique must have faded through time. I must be the only sub-fifty year old dude on the West Coast who isn't falling all over himself about Pacific Rim.
No, look, seriously I'm not complaining! Everything I hear about the wraithknight is good. Yes, it will fold to massed poison/sniper fire but while it's being pinged to death it will be pumping out 3 suncannon shots every turn. That will leave a mark!
I'm more smitten with the flyers.
And if what I hear is true, an across-the-board bump from BS3 to BS4 is outstanding!
And Battle Focus!
And one of the best parts of this whole thing is that the only things I might have to buy (besides the codex) are the new models, since I've got like 10K points of Eldar in the garage.
Life is good indeed.
