A couple of months back I found loads of old notes about all the old Epic Space Marine games we played, starting from back when I was in high school. I thought it would be a good idea to type them all up as best I could, and upload them all. While I was at it, I also converted the Epic-S and 40K battle reports from their PDF state to HTML, and they can be found on the Warhammer 40K page.

Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.

Opened up a new section all for including stuff about the board game Super Dungeon Explore. There's not much in there yet until my own rules are finished, but hopefully will get some content in there soon.

This is where you can read any of my irregular wafflings about computer gaming. The whole point of this blog is to help motivate me to properly finish games, whether they be recent ones or older ones I played when I was younger that I never managed to beat.

14th July 2012 - The Final Episode?

Just finished the last Federation episode on STO. Really not sure whether to keep playing or just scrap it. It's really not all that exciting or tactical, and there are damn little bugs rampaging within, but there are a few reasons why I should probably carry on, at least for a little while:
1. The new update has just added fleet starbases to the game, so if I get into a fleet I can help construct and develop one for cool rewards.
2. A while back Mr. Gallear and I made Klingon characters, with him making the awesome Klingon Barry Scott and myself the weird little Jibbajabba. Would be interesting to see the war from the other side.
3. And also the Scoob has just recently started playing as the mean-lookin' Kharnragnar with his mighty ship the U.S.S. This.

So while I decide here's a bunch of images from the last few weeks in the Alpha Quadrant:
