Best Wishes in the New Year...and Resolutions

I'd like to wish everyone out there a Happy New Year and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2011. May this new year, be better than the last, but not as good as the next.

With that said, I've compiled a list of resolutions for 2011. Scattered amongst the personal resolutions that I make every year and usually manage to break within the first week, I've included a few hobby-related promises:

1 - Game More
2 - Paint More
3 - Finish a Project (Crimson Fists)
4 - Catch Up on Horus Heresy Series
5 - Give Privateer Press Games a Shot
6 - Try 4th Edition D&D
7 - Post More Frequently

Love that GW Art...

One of my favorite things about GW and the 40k Universe is the artwork. As you know, I am a big Space Marines fan and as a result, a big fan of the Space Marines Battles novels series. Well, GW's daily post has announced another addition to this great series from Black Library. The Purging of Kadilus, by Gav Thorpe featuring the Dark Angels. Check out this cover!
It's fantastic art like this that makes a guy want to start a whole new project!

Ultramarines Movie Review

My Ultramarines DVD set arrived yesterday and needless to say, I couldn't get the kids to bed fast enough. My only obstacle was that my wife was home and she'd want to watch some non-violent and unmanly movie. Thankfully that didn't happen. As luck would have it, mMy bride fell asleep with the kids. But I digress.

As I post this, there are countless detailed reviews out there on the internet, I'll keep mine short and simple. I'm not one for mincing about small deviations from the 40k mythos. All I want to see is a decent story, ass-kicking effects and senseless violence. Well, I wasn't disappointed. While I don't believe that Ultramarines will be receiving any nominations from the Academy, I thought it was a great movie. To see one of my favorite games brought to film was like a dream come true. I found it contained a good mix of story and action. I recommend it for all of those fans out there that aren't too hung up on details.
