wordpress upgrade

I have now upgraded wordpress to 2.5.1. It was a bit tricky, but that may have been due to my less than amazing ftp program. Ah well, hopefully there will now be fewer security holes than before…

Again, if you happen to read this and notice something is a bit odd, let me know.

5th Edition 40K

It does not seem so long since 4th Edition, but 5th is now just around the corner. GW have a preview on their site and there are copies in stores which the managers may let you look at.
Rules wise I am a bit concerned that “true line of sight” will make things much slower and fiddley, but I guess I will have to play it to find out. I imagine it will also make my favourite army, Eldar, play a bit differently. On the other hand, running wraithguard, scorpions and Eldrad will be interesting…

Then there is the question about which version to get. GW seem to have realised that there is a market for a range of different editions- I am tempted by the collectors edition, but then I would need a second copy to play with, and I just can’t justify that. Rumour also states that there will not be a full mini rulebook- I bought macragge (from ebay…) just so I did not need to carry the big one around. The gamers edition looks nice too, but I probably don’t really need an ammo crate. I may just end up with the basic book.
