Hey readers. Derek here. Finally posting my side of things. I am painting the other army of the Starter set me and Brian went in on. DA ORKS! I am going to start by posting a few pictures of all the shit I bought and need to put together and paint. Then I will start posting similarly to what you are used to seeing on here by Brian with progress posts with pictures and the like. And keep in my mind, we are new to the hobby and painting, so take it easy on us. Now to the goods…
The Ork Battle Force
More Ork Nobz to go with the ones from the Start set.
Ork Gretchin…not sure why I bought these guys….they looked cool and maybe somewhere down the line I will use em.
Thanks for taking a look! As Brian would say. So please look forward to seeing me assemble and paint these things as best I can. Tips, tricks and constructive criticism are encouraged.
It is finally here. Warhammer 40K 6th Edition rule book is now out. Head on out to your local retailer or order it online. Games Workshop is offering a few different editions to choose from. They are as follows:

The Collectors Edition is ” an enhanced version of the Standard Rulebook. Printed on parchment-like paper, each Collectors’ Edition is individually numbered between 0001 and 4000, and comes concealed inside a magnetically sealed, wardrobe-fronted box. It is an artefact you will want to treat as something sacred.” Priced at $132.00
the Gamer’s Edition:
The Gamer’s Edition is “comes in an Officer’s Signal Satchel, a magnificent leatherette bag in which the Rulebook itself is already stored. Sealed with a toggle, it comes with a thick, reinforced canvas strap, and 12 Munitorum Dice – special edition dice that come in a lasgun power pack tin, and which come in an exclusive red colour for the Gamers’ Edition.” This edition is priced at $123.75
Another few items they released along with new Rule book are:

If you don’t’ subscribe to Games Workshop newsletter or haven’t checked it out yet, they just announced that they are launching a crap ton of digital products, exclusively available through the iBookstore with the iBooks app. Some examples of the digital goodies you can download are Codexes, Army books and the How to Paint books. The newsletter goes on to say that “Each one is packed with animated images, searchable text and plenty of other exciting features all available with the swipe of a finger.”
All I can say is that I hope they decide to bring it to the Andriod and Windows mobile as well. Its a pretty sweet idea, if you think about it. Instead of lugging all your codexes, rule book, etc. you can just grab your iPad. The best part about it, to me, is that it will have a search function on it. A lot faster than flipping through the pages. Being new to Warhammer 40k, I do that….A LOT. Head over to games-workshop.com and check out their article on the matter. Also they have posted videos and hiliarious screen shots from the digital products, like this one:
Not all their screen shots are as stupid as the above. This is the one that made me more interested in their digital books:
I’m a techy so this interests me greatly, but I just hope they decide to release it for other OS’s. So go to their site and check it out!
