So, for many years at Galaxy Books and Comics in Wichita Falls, Texas (the FLGS) two games fought for dominance, for the top-spot as favorite.
*yawn* Okay, I'm already bored with the lead-up, basically Confrontation and 40K were played alternately month-to-month for many years. For the record, I was pretty horrible at this game - come to think of it, I'm probably not even in double digit wins - but I loved it for the miniatures. I really enjoy painting Rackham minis, largely because of the beautiful and diverse sculpts. This was also the favorite game for the Master Manipulator (every store has to have one) and the Partner In Crime (enlist him for a sure thing), both of whom have a large collection of gorgeously painted miniatures.
But even this couldn't stop the game dying the moment Rackham stopped supporting it. Their decision to change the game to prepainted figures killed it overnight. Even the repeated attempts to resurrect it by playing 3.5 failed: who wants to support a dead game?
That said, the Master Manipulator (every store has to have one) and the Partner In Crime (enlist him for a sure thing) have decided to push the game again, using a combination of rules from 1.0 to 3.5; basically, the best rules from all sets. We'll see how long this lasts, but I'm always game to support the FLGS.
Plus, a new sculpt for Melmoth hit the store today. Man, I'm excited about this one.
This is a really nice plastic. Very detailed, almost no flash. Also notice the different shaped female slots: putting this together is a no-brainer.
And voila! I literally snapped it together for this picture. It's not glued, but the pieces are so well developed they hold in shape perfectly. Wish all miniatures were like this...
I'm not going to be able to resist the temptation to paint this model before I continue work on my other various projects. Matter of fact, I'm off to work on it now.
Take care - Brent
