I picked up the Khorne Daemonkin book - a digital copy - right when it came out. Although I have not traditionally been a Khorne player (says the guy with 36 Flesh Hounds, 2 Skull Cannons, 6 Bloodcrushers and 2 Heralds of Khorne), I really liked the integration I was seeing with CSM. For those considering the book - I highly recommend it if you are looking for a way to revitalize your CSM and add more depth/flexibility to a Daemon army. The fluff is a bit redundant - let's be honest, there is not a lot of depth when it comes to Khorne - but there are some cool stories and marking schemes to help differentiate squads. In this article I plan to cover the special rules in the book, and what makes it different from individual CSM/Daemons.

I have always wanted to attend Adepticon, but it just has not worked out in the past. Both my daughters were born in March over the last two years and before that I was a poor graduate student. This year looked to be more of the same and I was targeting 2016 to make the trip out.
As luck would have it, I had a business trip the week of Adepticon anyway, and I connected through Chicago O'Hare. It was around 6:00 pm on Friday when I learned my flight home was cancelled. I then learned that there were no other flights available until Sunday at 7:00 pm...

It's certainly been a while since my last blog post, so I figure that my first post back after almost a year should include some of the things that have pulled me out of my hobby malaise.
First up are a few Warmachine models from the Convergence of Cyriss range. I used to play Hordes in the Mark I days, but got out of it when I moved to NY from MI. Locally, both in Horseheads and Rochester, Warmachine/Hordes has picked up quite a bit of steam. Millennium hosted a tournament that drew over 25 attendees, and Buffalo recently hosted a Food Machine event that was specifically recognized by Privateer Press for the most cans donated (Great job!). I’m slowly getting back into it.
Of all the things that have been exciting me to hobby, bases have engaged me the most. Weird, right? I’ve been experimenting with a laser engraver at a local maker space in Ithaca, NY. Each of the models here have a base with a laser etched insert. These were my first shot at it, and I was aiming for a Greco-Roman style. Since I made these, I’ve already though of new ideas to try. I think my next generation of ideas will be more steampunk-like.
Check out more of the models & bases below the fold.

This weekend was the Millennium invitational, an event held at Millennium Games every December. It is a great event, with the participants qualifying through the normal tournaments at Millennium Games over the year and all the prize support being on the house. Normally I play my Da Boyz GT army at the event, but this year I did not attend Da Boyz and changed things up with a Highlander style list. I had intended to bring these fellows...
...unfortunately they did not make the cut.

The Thanksgiving holiday gave me the rare opportunity to both test the list I was planning to run at the Millennium invitational and to play a casual 40k game without the intensity and time constraints of a tournament game. This is actually the first non-tournament game of 40k I have played since June - it is a bit strange to play 40k in a casual setting.
For this game I had the chance to face up against a Slaanesh themed CSM army - with some very cool conversions, Noise Marines and a pair of Maulerfiends.

Recently, a friend of mine introduced me to someone else, someone who offered me a different perspective on life and has given me a new outlook. At first it was just a quick and casual introduction but I quickly found myself looking her up and wanting to spend more time with her. I've been making excuses to stay out after work and on the occasional weekend just to be with her. Is this the one whom I was meant to be or is she really just an escape, an excuse, to strike back at my true love for shutting me out?

Before I get into the meat of this post, I need to give thanks. Thanks to those readers who've continued to stop by and give us some page views and comments this year. We don't advertise or make money on page clicks, but for my fellow authors, seeing traffic and getting comments is one of the few rewarding things about blogging. I also need to thank my fellow club-mates and authors for continuing to write and post in my absence this year.
