  4. Thanks for the compliment Syp! Almost beat Tobold :O

  5. Thanks for the shout, Syp. Funny thing is Once I got to work I actually did mark OB download date and release on my office calender, I hope no one takes it the wrong way reading “WAR BEGINS! This day of Reckoning!” Looking forward to the Chaos cast sir.

  6. Thanks for all the links, man! 12 is a personal favorite. Don’t know how you found all this stuff, but you did and shared it with all the other fans, so, thank you.

  7. Woo hoo! The Bloody Twenty! Are these tears in my eyes?

    @ singlemalt: David Lee Roth ftw…I loved that video!

  8. Thanks for the quick pimp, Syp.

    Paul Barnett is always a good interview. That one has some meat in it, so people should definitely check it out if they haven’t already.

  9. […] a result of being mentioned by Syp in Da Bloody Twenty  (Woo hoo!), my hits reach ginormous proportions yesterday.  That’s just awesome…and […]

  10. Glad I made the list. I was thinking “I’m pretty sure I’ve only written one real article this week, I hope Syp likes it :)”

  11. Thanks for the mention, Syp! Why would you want to quit me? You’ll miss out on my future Warhammer Martial Arts & Crafts section. You make me cry.

  12. Get this: WAR is now #2 on video games at Amazon! The SE has been around 400-500 recently. Looks big!

  13. @ Hooligan – ha, you must be an older fart like me. 😉
