Description: Description: meFor a 40K player, I'm pretty lucky. I don't mean that I make all my dice rolls or I win all my games: I mean that I started playing soon after "Rogue Trader" arrived in the U.S. and that I live in the Baltimore area, near Games Workshop's U.S. Headquarters. I've been to Games Day several times and spoken with a number of the U.S. and U.K. staff. And, of course, I've gone to dozens of independent and GW stores, met hundreds of players, and played an innumerable amount of games. 

This part of the website is where, if you want, you can read about my experiences, observations, and opinions. You'll also find guest commentaries here. Feel free to e-mail me your comments.

Warhammer 40K is a constantly-evolving game, with Games Workshop publishing new rules and army books every few years. Many of the articles in this section were written during the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th Editions of the game. Some references might not be relevant under the current rules.
