The Sound of Fantasy

As i have already alluded to i love the Fantasy genre, and part of what makes this genre great is the music that is associated with it from things like video games, T.V programs and movies. For me the media whose soundtrack has always defined fantasy has been the Eldar Scrolls games and for a while now i have been trying to find a way to buy the soundtrack to Skyrim.

Book Review: The Vaults of Winter

The Book in Question
Having recently got a Ereader and rediscovered my passion for books and reading i decided to get the Black Library books Vaults of Winter and Tears of Isha, the first two books in a planned trilogy about the Wood Elf's king Orion.

And Then There Was One

Recently my co author here on this blog has left for a fresh start. This was partially in response to my removing of the recaster posts, but also because he had been wanting to do this for some time and now seemed like a good time to do it. His blog is called The Imperial Patrol and will be linked on my blog roll.

With Jayden's departure the focus of this blog will shift. There will be a marked decrease in the amount of 40k related content goes up as my focus is fantasy not 40k, although there will still be a few 40k posts as i am still working on my 40k malal chaos space marine army. 
Like wise Jayden’s blog will focus on 40k with a bit of fantasy thrown in. I wish Jayden well in his endeavours. Until next time.

Explain! Or Why I Removed The Most Viewed Posts

So the astute amongst you will have noticed that the two recaster posts on this blog have recently been removed, and this post aims to explain why. Off the bat i want to make clear that they were not removed because GW asked me to, i removed them of my own free will and after a lot of internal and external debate. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and read on.

Coffee is good for you, drink it.

Thar Be Dwarfs

So with the release of the following image it seems like the Dwarf release next month is inevitable. 

While the writing is interesting its the Runic Standard thingy directly above this caption that should be grabbing your attention
This is good news as it shows that GW has rediscovered, what i like to call, the Forgotten armies. The Forgotten armies refers to the three armies who still have 6th ed books (as shown by the table below), as you can see Dwarfs got their current book in Jan 2006, Wood Elves in Sep 2005 and Bretonnia waaaay back in the mists of Feb 2004.

Dark Rumors

So at some point last night the rumor blog Faeit posted rumors, which among other things, stated that Beastmen, Bretonnia, Tomb Kings and Wood Elves (gasp) would be discontinued due to Games Workshop loosing money. 

Now my first reaction to this was shock, wood elves are the one army i truly enjoy playing and to have them discontinued would be a big deal for me. However after the initial reaction i grew skeptical: Why would Games Workshop discontinue Tomb Kings? They got a 8th Ed book and it would make no sense for them to shelve a army they recently revitalized.
