Allies of Inconvenience- Episode 26: Thoughts to 9th Edition 40k and Indomitus

We are back after a canceled Adepticon and months of Quarantine and we have the excitement of 9th Edition to talk about! We kick off the episode with an extensive Hobby Progress and we have had quite a lot of down time to work on hobby. After that we launch into discussion about the 9th edition previews we have seen so far, from the new suggested "minimum" for table size to the exciting new terrain rules and everything in between! We close out with discussion about "what's in the box" for the upcoming Indomitus release and those amazing Necrons and less than amazing Space Marine Marneus Kart.

The Post of Quarantine- 70 days of Isolation, 30 to go

Well this year has not gone according to plan. I am sure most of you would agree. It most certain has not for me. Shortly after Adepticon became Adeptican't, I had to go to a 103 day training course and have been stuck in a hotel room every day since then. I did bring a ton of Hobby stuff with me, but in general motivation has been low and the environment not entirely conducive to hobbying and in particular, painting and blogging. A Hampton in hotel room was not designed to be a "hobby haven" for sure, but I've tried to make the most of it.

At this point I am down to my last month, and will try and get some more content up here, but I haven't had much to talk about without releases from GW and every event cancelled. And the lack of access to my camera gear means hobby posting is limited too. However I do have some psychic awakening books on the way to me here, so I should be talking about that soon.

In the meantime, you can see my hobby progress best on my Instagram @SepulchreofHeroes and if you haven't yet, follow us on Facebook for the best hobby related memes.

Anyway, before I left I did some preparation for my exile

-Primed and prepped all my Aeronautica Imperialis
-Assembled, Primed and basecoated a Pallas Grav Tank

I also packed up all my Titanicus with the hope of getting a game in in the local area, but COVID restrictions have entirely prevented that and I don't hold much hope of being able to play one in my last month.

With that done I packed up my Jeep and headed out.
