    How much time did you put into planning out this magazine? I'm oblivious to GW so I'm probably not your target audience, but I'm overwhelmed by the amount of information you're providing in your first issue.

    Christ I recognize most of the handles involved in making the Oracle. I had been on Portent since ~99. I think my account got trimmed due to disuse.

    Great job, I especially enjoyed the Future of 40k.

    Hereitic based on the bio.

    I use to post in the 40k general, tactics, and periodically rules section (mostly in the Blood Angel, Salamander, Eldar, and Dark Eldar threads-as those were my armies). Just before I gave up on 40k I had purchased a Nid box set.

    Oh I also was kinda active in the WarMachine section. I stopped visiting portent because I was spending more and more time on Privateer Press' forum.

    I used the same handle I do here.

    I'd hold back until 4th ed like I am.

    I looked into IK, but the prices are just as bad when you total up the entire force- although the rules are much better.

    Entire force is the tricky thing. I had a lot of fun playing the boxed set games. Right now it seems 500 points is the equivalent to a 40k 1,500 point game (i.e., tournement standard).

    What's nice about IKWM is that if you switch Warcasters it can distinctively change the way your army works. I would recommened anyone interested in the WM just pick up a box set and one of the additional warcasters.

    As for 40k, if 4th ed is really good I could start playing again . . . providing I don't have to seriously revamp my armies.

    according to Paul Sawyer, all codices and armies will be compatible- it'll mainly focus on assault and vehicle rules.

    I'll keep an eye out for the revision. I still have a friend or two how play 40k regularly. They'll keep me in the loop.
