Like a lot of people I know I have been growing more and more disenfranchised with Games Workshop lately. Since anecdotal evidence is known to be the best evidence, my experiences certainly mean that the majority of Games Workshop customers are feeling the same way as me. A combination of being smoked at a couple of tournaments by extremely powerful lists and the fact that my job now requires me to be inundated by wargaming all day er' day was leading to some major 40k burnout. Recently certain actions by Games Workshop has rekindled the fire in my loins to put together little men and march them across the table top. So without further adieu, here is my list of reasons my 40k excitement levels are about to explode.
1. New Releases - In the last couple months GW has been releasing new content at breakneck speed. Not only are they releasing new armies and kits but they are seemingly coming out of nowhere. First we had are sneak Harlequin release followed by the first of hopefully four Daemonkin codices. This week we are seeing the release of the Skitarii codex with an all but confirmed Eldar codex soon to follow. Who knows what will be next! Will the Dark Angels finally be given the love they deserve? Will the Adepta Sororitas stop being treated like a step child forgotten at the park after soccer practice? Who knows! But I'm excited to see what the very near future holds for these factions.
So what do you think? Have you been getting reinvigorated for the 40k hobby with these new releases or have they been pushing you further towards the abyss?
