I just thought I’d write a quick post to let you know that DiceFiend.com is back and ready for some Warhammer Underworlds action!
I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t going to bother with the website anymore as I’ve been struggling for time to play the game and then write anything on here with regards to what’s going on within the scene and with what I personally am doing within it. Then, I sat down and thought about it and thought, “Bollocks to it, I love the game of Shadespire and I like blogging so why not give it another go?”.
That’s exactly what I’m now doing. The previous incarnation of the blog was intended to be about me and my Warhammer 40k and Warhammer Underworlds gaming but, to be honest, I don’t have a lot of time for Warhammer 40k anymore — both physical time and inclination-wise.
One of the things I absolutely love about Shadespire is the fact that you can have a warband built in something like 20 minutes and it’s immediately ready to be used in your games. With 40k, you have to build loads of dudes which takes ages, then prep and paint them before then having to go off and start the whole process again due to Games Workshop moving the goalposts with further releases of miniatures, codexes and rules.
This latest attempt at getting back into Warhammer 40k is my 3rd or 4th attempt and, to be honest, I’m done with it. I have a 2000 point Necron army that I’ve been in the process of building and am up to the 700(ish) point mark and have slowed down as my interest has dwindled. Right now my mindset is whether to keep them and slowly grind my way through getting them done or sell them and get back some of the money I shelled out for them and save it for future Warhammer Underworlds purchases. I think I’m in favour of the latter but what do you think? Let me know in the comments below, please.
Future of DiceFiend
So, what am I planning for this blog going forward? (I know you’re all dying to know…not!). Well, basically, I’m planning to keep myself up-to-date with the scene surrounding the game and the goings-on within the production and expansion of the game and report back here what I know.
I’m also planning on boring you all with what I’m doing in the way of hobbying in and around this great game. This could include the odd game report, my product purchases, any ideas I have, deck builds, tactics, relevant events/tournaments I attend, podcasts and other blogs I enjoy etc. Basically, anything I think us Warhammer Underworlds fans would be interested in reading/seeing.
Because I’m not going to be splitting my time between Shadespire and 40k anymore, I’m hoping to have more time to play the former whilst having a bit more time to write about it here. The whole idea and execution of Shadespire games just suit me perfectly these days with its quickness and ease of setting up and playing as opposed to 40k and AoS. Oh yeah, I have a Stormcast Eternals army I forgot about as well — more funds for the Shadespire pot if I can be arsed to sell them on eBay.
Anyway, that’s me and why I thought I’d stick with the idea of having a Warhammer Underworlds blog.
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot, I’ve added a shop section to the site now as well. As time goes on, I’ll add more products to it as I find them in an attempt to give us a better selection of places to buy our gaming stuff. If you click the buy button on an item you’ll be taken to the appropriate retailer where you’ll be able to buy. If you do make a purchase, I’ll receive a small (and it really is small) commission for you doing so. This has absolutely no negative effect on you as a buyer as the price and service you’ll receive will be exactly the same whether you follow one of my links or not. I’m just making it easier for you to find the thing you’re after.
Any commission I might be lucky enough to make goes into a pot that I then use to help fund the running of this site — the same applies to any ads you might see dotted around here. So, go on, do me a favour and go buy something would ya, hehe.
Happy gaming everyone! Maybe we’ll bump into each other at an event, tournament, Facebook group or via an online App like Tabletop Simulator at some stage.
