    Reece and Frankie: If you guys haven’t seen it, you should check out the animated 40k parody series, “If the Emperor Had a Text-to-speech Device.” It’s on YouTube, it’s hilarious, and the Adeptus Custodes play a huge part in it. You could say they’re more prominent than the Space Marines in it. The series is relatively popular, so I can already see the conversions that might come for the Custodes models. Seriously, I can’t even think of the Custodes anymore without thinking of “Text-to-speech Device.”

        Lol! Awesome! I’m already picturing the conversions of shirtless Custodes models with greased abs, and shuddering in horror. You know it’s going to happen.

      I would lose it an eventual 40k Rogal Dorn was release in Centurion Armor.

    It’s true, there have been issues with loading your website, as others have claimed. It usually takes me 3-5 attempts at reloading, and I’ve tried on several different computers. Sadly I have no answers but I hope you can figure it out soon 🙂

      yup – last 2 weeks, with a message about the page getting too many redirects…

      I’ve seen the error as well. Generally that happens when you have a navigation loop. For instance, if someone goes to “” you might redirect them to “”. But if you then set a default page, you might set the Home page to redirect people back to the default in case users had bookmarked the home page.

      If your users update their bookmarks it should fix it. Also, you could check to make sure that your home page doesn’t have any auto-redirects. One common error is if you redirect from to and back. You might just check to make sure you are consistent with navigation.

        I’ve reset my bookmark a few times and still get it, also always happens after leaving a comment regardless of device, though the comment does get placed.

    Based on that paint job, it appears the biggest rickroll of the all was revealing Leman Russ is an Alpha Legion operative.

    I am hoping the ITC moves to use the GW FAQ, in general.

      I dont. Most of the gw faq matches the ITC faq anyways. There are lots of stupid rulings that are being omitted.

      Yep, time to use the GW faq, it’s been implemented pretty much everywhere else outside ITC. It’s time to accept it and see if we can make it work. There are only minor tweaks needed to fully implement it. It’s not a big deal.

    With regards to the FAQ, I think we should finish the season as we started. Keeps it consistent despite a lot of the FAQ making sense. Adjusting to codexes as they come out is one thing, making sweeping changes to the entire ruleset, that may or may not ever be official, and still require adjustment for competitive play, seems pointless imho. Start it fresh next season I say!

    I would rather see the season end with the current ruleset than adapt to a ruleset that may or may not be official, ever. The proposed GW FAQ still needs to be errata’d if you will to make it balanced for competitive play-why change it with 3 months to go in the season-Start fresh next year!

    I’m gonna need me some Custodes. I can already feel my wallet weeping if these are released as an individual army. I need it.

    Reece, you guys have any plans to vote on the dedicated transport question alongside the other GW draft questions ?
