Site updates - Readers Comments

Hello fellow hobbyists, I would like to apologise for the "radio silence" last week. As regular readers might be aware, I was sharing my old Macbook with the missus after she managed to spill a mug of tea on her own laptop some two months ago, this issue has now been solved! I went ahead and got my self a brand new laptop for work (and a little gaming ^^), resulting in the need to transfer a lot data from the Mac to the new (Windows) laptop, this includes various videos I have been working and pictures I have taken for the blog. Having been a Mac user since 2008, I find coming back to Windows a little daunting, even small things like not having Chiclets keys on the keyboard have made working on this new laptop a little slower than I would have liked.

I have noticed an increase of comments on the blog while I have been away and have even received emails from fellow hobbyist around the world. Firstly I would like to say a BIG thank you to those of you who take the time to read, comment and email me hobby related stuff and I would like to say sorry for not responding to them last week. All comments on this blog have been well received and appreciated, so please keep commenting and sending in those hobby emails! In regards to the current questions I have been sent, I will be doing a small Q & A type Post tomorrow to address them. I think this will be very beneficial for posters who do not use Disqus as it means their comments will be featured on this blog, for those of you who are not aware, for some reason having Disqus on blogger negates the normal comments settings, so you can leave comments via blogger, but they do not sure up once posted. I am unaware of any fix thus far so will go the route of publishing those comments via a post. After all, if you have taken the time to write a comment, the least I can be done is make sure your comment is shared :-)

Thanks for reading and keep on commenting/emailing about the hobby!

Thanks for reading,

Badab War: Back to business

This weekend just gone by was not only the Diamond Jubilee, but also my girlfriend's (aka Evi) birthday weekend. Before she went marauding off to the clothes stores with birthday money, she decided to dump me at the local Games Workshop (very considerate of her!), and while I did meander about a bit trying not to bother the staff with old war stories, I did find myself making a few purchases. My hobby shopping is almost exclusively online simply due to the discounts available, however since I was there anyway I parted with some money - I did manage to restrain fro buying an Empire army though! I grabbed copies of the audio books: Thousand Sons and Prospero Burns for some easy listening an more importantly I grabbed myself a Stormtalon gunship...
