Posted on April 24th, 2014 under , , , . Posted by

By Trojan Points Like most of you, I read about the All Quiet on the Martian Front (AQotMF) Kickstarter back in the day. While I recognized the “H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds Miniatures Game” as a good idea, I’ve never been a big fan of retro sci fi…

Salute, salute, salute salute salute. (sung to the tune of Black Adder) I’m sure no one minded me singing Rob’s Salute theme tune on the way home one little bit.

Alright. The new Imperial Guard Astra Militarum Codex is out in the wilds now. While I am not the greatest scholar of the Imperial Guard in 40K, I can’t help but feel that a lot of the rules feel .. um … tedious? Prone to unnecessary rolls …
