Hello there fellow war gamers. This week’s article will be somewhat short and sweet. First off, we head into the end of Summer and towards the dawn of Fall. This means many things: Fall colors, the end of humidity thick as a sponge, and of course, hurricane season. It also heralds, this coming month, a new Space Marines release for Warhammer 40k.
Now, this is a big army. If you play Warhammer (or even if you don’t), you’ve heard of them. Some of us have even had our pictures taken with them (Gamesday inside joke.) So, I’ll wet your whistle with a few rumors I’ve heard.

Before I dive into anything about the actual tournament, let me take a moment to thank everyone who was involved in running it. These guys are trying to put something great together and if you didn’t make it out to this one, you should highly consider coming out to their next event.
Yesterday, (Saturday) I received a generous gift.
Blake took me aside yesterday and explained to me that a group of people who care very much for the store organized secretly to give a gift for the betterment of the store. This certainly blew me away, and brought me to tears. He wouldn’t divulge exactly who contributed or who was involved in organizing this gift, and that some people wanted to remain anonymous. So, not knowing everyone involved, I certainly would like to thank you all!
The Comic Book Store means a lot to a good number of people. We love to hang out here, play games here, talk comics, or just complain about the latest movie. This store has certainly become a part of our lives, and a big part for some of us. I know this may not be the snazziest looking store, the counters up front are second hand and the carpet has taken some wear over the years. We have plans over the next two months to update the store’s interior, and this gift will certainly be a big help with that. Thank you! But I do hope you know that carpeting isn’t really what makes a store so great, its the people. All of you really make this store the amazing place it is.
I may not be able to thank you all personally. I will certainly respect the anonymous nature of this gift, but I do hope you see this message and know that this unexpected gift is greatly appreciated!
