Sorry I have been a bit MIA lately, but real life has been continually interfering with anything make believe. Any gaming time I've had as little as it has been I've used learning to play 40k with a guy that lives five minutes from my house and work on building an army for that. Unfortunately, everyone that I know that plays AoA lives at least 45 minutes or more away so it makes it much more difficult to set time aside to play.
With that said, I would very much be in favor of opening things up (as I see has been done in my absence). I routinely have 40k questions or observations I would like to bounce off people, but the Bolter and Chainsword forum is full of a bunch of trolls and while they have good information, many of the members are absolute assholes. I would much rather be able to pop off newb questions amongst our kinder and gentler membership.
That's my 2 cents.
The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
