I started this blog in 2008 out of love for the game of 40k and my enthusiasm for a single faction, Tau Empire. It features more than just those things, including my work on the hobby, commissions, other little projects and thoughts I have. I told myself way in the beginning that this blog would rant-free. That it would do what Fritz did for his army-build enthusiasm for Tau, create an atmosphere of fluff around, create a world full of characters and tales of battle.
You responded. People come to this blog to read about all the great things in the Tau'Va and beyond. It was a happy little place for a good three years and that was the contract. I produce posts about my love for the hobby, in return, you all keep my enthusiasm up with comments of encouragement and readership. It worked so well.
I broke that contract with this post: http://tauofwar.blogspot.com/2011/12/whats-wrong-with-40k-emperor-wears-no.html
I apologize. I really shouldn't have posted that article. You come to Tau of War for enthusiasm for the hobby, not e-bitching. I feel like I have cast my lot with the likes of YTTH, a blog that simply bleeds depression and negativity. That is not the direction I want to take Tau of War. I am removing the post for this blog and in the future, I promise not to share such negativity with you all again.
Please forgive my momentary lapse of enthusiasm and positivity and I hope you return next week after the holidays. I've got some neat things to show you in the new year. In the meantime, enjoy this time with your family, friends, 40k, dice and your dear little army men.
Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting, Shas'la!
Ps check out this Alpha Legion Rhino that I've done with my airbrush. I love that little machine!
