It’s been about a month since Ronin and I have started playing 40K. Our goal, learn the rules and get a fully painted army each to go and play at one of the Gauteng clubs. Let’s see what has happened in the past few weeks.

For the backers it means paying for an item before it is even manufactured. So you will have to wait for the product to be produced and shipped. For us in SA this usually means via the SAPO….
