I’ve come to the conclusion that, even though I love the models and current lore progression, I have zero interest in playing 40K right now. On the other hand, I’ve been wishing I had an army ready so I could play Age of Sigmar. Funny how these things wax and wane

“…Personal information is valuable because we use it to target ads.

“Not all hour-long podcasts are worthwhile, but I found this one by The Atlantic’s Matt Thompson and Alexis Madrigal to be pretty compelling.
