    Shocking! Any links to Muslims sawing off heads of infidels?

    I did say the religious world microcosm, didn’t I? That would refer to all religions… With the possible exception of Buddhism (and even they’ve been known to brawl occasionally) – they’re all as bad as each other. Just because I tend to focus on the stupidity of Christianity – and I can’t believe I have to keep pointing this out to confused people who seem to think I have some pro-Muslim bias – doesn’t mean I don’t think all religion is stupid, hypocritical, bigoted and devisive.

    “Just because I tend to focus on the stupidity of Christianity”
    Hence the confusion my friend! I’m no apologist, but it seems like it 90/10. Christians may be mostly dumb but probably the lesser evil IMHO. Anyhow I get your point.

    Christians have done their fair share of beheading throughout history, don’t you worry.
    I’m not here to make sure every religion gets equal time on my blog for their violence and bigotry, I just call ’em as I see ’em.
    Anyway, it’s probably more important to point out the stupidity of the religion which is most prevalent in the Western world, the culture I’m part of. Islam gets enough bad press already.

    More importantly, what’s your take on the Adeptus Astartes?

    Well, that’s more like it!
    Just finished painting a new dreadnought from the boxed set. Lovely stuff. I’ve started playing W40K again after about a twenty year break …

    I just picked up the new 5th edition rulebook a ccouple of months ago. As a fan of Space Hulk and the Dan Abnett novels, I got it almost as much for the art and background info as the rules. I would love to play, but the cost to start playing and seemingly complex rules are intimidating..

    Yep, the cost is insane. I still have quite a few old Space Marine figures left from many years ago when they were cheapish. I must admit though, the new boxed set is pretty good value and with it you have roughly 500 points a side to play, which makes for a quite respectable game. If you have the discipline to buy and paint the figures in small batches over time, and not go blow a lot of money and then have them sit in a drawer unpainted for years, it’s not so bad. Also the Battle Company boxes are OK – I got a Tau one and it gives you a decent 500pt army for a relatively ‘reasonable’ price.
