This week saw the group just hanging out and chatting for the evening. With a couple of us getting there later than usual, we didn't try to squeeze in a game and run the risk of staying out too late.
It can be tough to get up the next morning and trudge off to work after staying up into the wee hours.
That being said, we did cover a couple things.
The upcoming Blood Angels Codex.
There have been a couple of "leaked" versions, but it looks like the boys in red will be getting the same attention that the Space Wolves did. How their rules will turn out in the end, who knows... I'm just happy they appear to have gotten a good once over and they look to have lots of life breathed into their new book.

My slide into "Chaos."
No, I'm not playing Chaos, but the other Old Timers seem to believe the Dark Angels are really just Chaos with an Imperial paint scheme.
It hurts that they don't have faith in the Emperor like I do.
Me... I find myself increasingly frustrated and disappointed with the lack of (I even lack the word to describe what I'm talking about) the current Dark Angles Codex has.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Dark Angels, I just wish the Codex matched the rich background for these guys. At first, it didn't bother me, but now it does. The more I read about them and get into the history of these guys, I look at the Codex and I realize it does absolutely no justice in really portraying the chapter.
So... knowing that I only play for fun against close friends these days (meaning not competitively or in any type of tournament) I'm going back to the previous Codex. I'm going to use it to add the elements back in that I think make the Chapter what it is.
More to come on this, I promise.
