Not much to talk about tonight. There is a pretty exciting release from Games Workshop coming down the pipe. It's the starter set for the new edition of Warhammer 40k; Warhammer 40,000: Assault on Black Reach. It features a battle between Orks and Space Marines, which just so happen to be the 40k armies I plan on building. In addition to the much-loved tiny rulebook, the box contains two very good-sized forces for just $60. The Space Marines get a Captain, a Dreadnought, 10 Tactical Marines, and 5 Terminators. The Orks get a Warboss, 20 Ork Boyz, 5 Nobz, and 3 Deffkoptas. They are probably simpler sculpts with fewer customization option than the regiment boxes, but to buy those forces separately at retail you'd wind up paying $321. So with the rulebook and a great value on figures I may have to pick up one or two of the starter boxes.

I had my first motorcycle class tonight. Nothing too exciting; as it was all classroom instruction. One guy showed up half an hour late and didn't get to take the class, as they gave his spot to a walk-on who arrived on time. I was hoping for some sort of scuffle between him and the instructor, but he left without a battle royale. It's probably good that there wasn't a fight but it makes for an anticlimactic blog story.
