I think it's in line with driving slower and eating at Hometown Buffet.

You're no longer in a hurry, so playing one really good game is more important than playing three okay ones.



I'm on the verge of being dragged into Battlegroup Kursk and Chain of Command. And I thought it would be hard to explain my collection of Space Marines to women. How the heck do I explain a reinforced platoon of 20mm Nazis (my buddies already have Finns and Russians)?

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

I may be moving onto playing a bit of bolt action, purely just so I can paint some historical mini's. Does this mean I'm turning into an old codger? Oh no this measn I have to wear knee length shorts, sandals with socks, grow a beard, smoke a pipe and grumble about youngsters and how good it was in the old days!!

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.
