Presence of Faeit: Where is the Blog Now, Eldar, and Dropzone Commander
This is my weekly editorial, and today I will mostly be talking about the site, Eldar, and of course anything else that crosses my mind while writing. Yes, I am posting up the cover of the latest White Dwarf, and no, after all that is going on, GW can't force me to take this down.
Games Workshop took and is taking awhile to respond, mostly due to Google taking their sweet time. Yes for those that are interested I have an IP Attorney on my case (a good one at that). While I will not go into the details (yet, because I do not want to get in the way of the final aspects of the what is going on), I am going to imagine that I will be very open and probably publish a lot of what is happening.
So yes, GW correspondence, and what they are saying and what is being returned to them will most likely, unless I am told by my own attorney not to, be published.
The good parts is, there is nothing that Games Workshop should of been able to do to my site, natfka.blogspot.com. Google when far above to accommodate Games Workshops complaints. The complaints by the way, imply ip infringement, which simply is not the case legally in these regards according the Fair Use clause of the first amendment of the United States when it comes to journalistic reporting.
Now that does not mean that if I were a UK citizen that there would be some breaches in there, but following US copyright law, I am in good standing. (great attorney who is very helpful on what I can and cannot do)
That being said, please do not get into commentary legal advice or opinions below, even if you are an attorney. These things are being handled by the pro's, and they specialize in ip law.
So look forward Faeit 212 fans, we are on the final stretches to get back up and running.
Loving the new Eldar release. The new flyers pictured above of course follow the aesthetic that I expect, and I would imagine that although in my own lists I have forgone flyers, I will probably still pic up a few. The rules thus far look great on them, of course the point costs are still out. So once codex is in hand, it will be a lot of fun to see how they are going to be on the tabletop.
The Wraithknight is expensive. 240approx pts? wow. Will I have one? yes. Will I have two? Not right off the bat.
Of all the things that have happened over the last month, a little of my eagerness to pick up 2 wraithknights, and 2-3 flyers has probably gone. So my purchases will be scaled back a little, probably to include what I am considering one of the best tabletop games out there, Dropzone Commander.
If you have not looked at this game yet, you are doing yourself a huge disfavor. I am going to right now say that this is one of the best tabletop games I have ever played. Thus far I have demo'd the games several times around my side of things here in Tigard, and no one has left not wanting to buy an army right out of the gate.
The game is just that well written, modeled, and constructed overall. I will be doing a lot of Dropzone Commander in the future as the new site comes back up. Of course every game is ideally going to get its own pages, and more game systems handled by the site. (with no diminishing of information on 40k)
