Postcards from the Edge

'Zoom! What was that? That was your life, Mate! Oh, that was quick, do I get another? Sorry, Mate that's your lot.'

So it's been a while, belated Happy New Years and all; the quote above, from a certain Torquay hotel owner, kind of sums up my past few months. Life has been a fast and bumpy ride to which the hobby has taken the proverbial back seat.

I'll make no apologies, I think even the most committed of us hobbyists (bloggers or not) drift from time to time with the changeable currents of our daily lives and I've never intended The Veil's Edge to be anything but an extension of my hobby; granted one that's hopefully shared and enjoyed by those who are kind enough to read it.

While I always like to get at least a few posts in a month, to force a schedule would be to make posting a chore and that’s something a hobby should never be. Anyhow, enough navel-gazing, there's enough fluff in the blog already (incidentally why is it always blue?)

2012 is upon us and has the potential to be a momentous year for 40k. Can it really be 25 years since I first journeyed into the Dark Millennium?

We've got rumours of various Codex releases, with all the promise of new figure ranges they entail and of course the coming of 6th Edition. It's just a hunch, but I have a feeling it's arrival will herald a new age and that the timeline clock may finally click over into the 42nd Millennium with a very large Bang!

I'm starting work on my 'Welcome Home Emperor' banners early ;o)

Thanks,that is all.
