New Marine Pics... I Don't Get It. Seriously.

Okay, first up...

Ugh.  Maybe with their hats off..?

Nope.  Not even with one of them flashing me.

Okay, this looks sweet!  It looks like it has some hooks along the bottom maybe?  To dig in?

This I don't believe.  I was around for Rogue Trader, so maybe Imperial Robots will come back one day - like they have for 30K - but this has got to be a joke.  I think I've seen the image from the weapon on a Forge World Rhino chassis variant.  That bot looks too Manga.

Please tell me that's a fake.

Regarding the others, my initial impression is F*^K(^G AWFUL...

...but we've played that game before, right Blogosphere?  The shady, out of context pics don't always match up to the reality.  The Storm Raven and Storm Talon come to mind.  Especially the latter, but I dig those kits.  The initial pictures were a bust, though.

By the way, look what comes up first in Google Images if you put in 'Storm Raven!'

For those of you who don't know, the Dyson Pattern Storm Buster is up first, with magnetic grapple for the Dread!  Ah, the good old days.

When the Blogosphere hate was well-earned!

The vanguard and sternguard plastics look better, but none of these (even the fake one at the end) interests me. The stalker looks retarded. I would think about some of this since I do have a ton of marines but a ~58 dollar codex is just not getting me interested.

The walker thingee is a hoax but god damn those centurions are fugly. At least they are going plastic with a lot including the new HQs. Now if some one would crack a window in the design studio so they could stop working with all those super glue fumes maybe we would get some consistent designs from them...

The new telutubby armour looks like a joke.....Is GW even trying anymore? I mean you got 25some years of lore to fall back on this is what they come up with?

Like to see what the new codex has rule wise maybe flesh out some of the first founding chapters. Iron hands could use a boost do we know if they added any new special characters? With Black Templars rolled into the new book maybe will get a new army like mechanicius.

At least they got something right with making stern/van guard kits plastic glad I kept my metal ones.

Errm, I don't get it either.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
