|Not bad for an hour or two of work.|

In other Warmahordes news, Templecon kicked off today with a couple big reveals. You've probably already read about them elsewhere (if you get your PP news here then something is wrong), but I'll drop an opinion or three to fill some space.
- Colossals - As the title implies, I'm not sold. This is mostly a size/transportation thing for me. The Khador colossal (Conquest) is freakin' huge, as wide as a Throne of Everblight is tall. Since I've all but discounted the Throne because I don't want to lug the thing around then having something even bigger isn't something I'm eager for. Getting colossals hot on the heels of the battle engines also seems a bit too quick for me. The Black Dragon UA is a great idea because it provides more options on the table without introducing a whole new unit, which is an approach I can get behind. Bloat isn't something I want to see in Warmahordes. Colossals seem big and bloated at first impression (though I will say the models look great), but I'll be glad to be proven wrong. Time will tell.
- The app, War Room, is something I've been longing for. iBodger is great, but without the stats and rules I still need to have a book or deck handy if I'm trying out something new. I never thought I'd see a company digitize their IP in this way, though I suppose an app is a little more secure than a PDF. Getting new releases beamed to my device and being able to connect with my opponent (so I can look at their cards without having to look at the actual card) are pure bonuses. Hopefully they do some sort of faction mega-pack so I'm not faced with the decision to get everything or just what I'll be using.
- Perhaps my recent discovery of the Warmahordes community hiding (in plain sight) in my own backyard will also spawn an IKRPG game. It's been a long time since I got my RPG on. If it uses mini-based combat then so much the better. Hopefully the IKRPG books will also shed some light on the setting as a whole, which I always feel behind on since I came in during Mark II.
