“Where in the hell is my copy of FIREBASE?” Admiral Smith slammed his fist down on the table.
“B-but sir, there have been…technical difficulties.” the orderly trembled.
“What kind of difficulties?”
“Well sir, it’s the…the ‘chosen one’ you appointed.”
”What about him?”
“Well sir…he,” a grin split the orderly’s weasley features, “he’s buggered off!”
“Buggered off!?”
“Cavorting with foul, tentacled xenos, or so the rumour goes.”
“Emperor damn it! Get me Captain Brandon on the double!”

For a moment it looked as though our beloved mag would come crashing down, destroying my faith in all things good and pure –and free!
To make matters worse, graphics guru Steve had a baby! (Now there’s a disturbing image)
Suddenly the FIREBASE fuel cells were left empty and with no captain or pilot, who would navigate her? Brandon of course!

-Adam


They’ve finally released me out of the brig and I have been promoted to Captain!
For those of you who don't know me, I‘m Brandon Vallee and I’ve been on the FIREBASE team since the very beginning.
When I heard that FIREBASE had fallen into turmoil with no one at the helm and all the content lost, I felt it was my duty to steer the mag back from the brink of annihilation and give it new life.

With the start of issue #5, FIREBASE is going to take on a whole new light! Backed up by an incredible team of talented staff who contribute some of the best work I have ever seen, we’re going to tackle new feats and uncover new areas of the hobby. Hell, we’re even going to sponsor a tournament team to help spread the word!

- Brandon


So go tell all your friends that this week FIREBASE is back! Bigger, stronger and a whole lot crazier!

So go tell all your friends thatSPREAD THE WORD!

Tempted to say "finally" but it looks like this issue is going to have been worth the long wait. All praise Captain Brandon. :D :p

Should be Wednesday.

Translation: The final version, after some technical difficulties, will be compiled a few hours after the deadline and sent to Sylass mid-Tuesday, and then take about 24 hours to upload ;)

Absolutely no offense meant, I love the mag. But I know beter than to expect a Warseer publication to be on time :p

They've done an incredible job considering the circumstances and time pressures.
They're certainly the craziest team we've ever had, so I'm keen to see what they produce next!

Sorry for the delay people.
Proof reading is taking a little longer than planned.

But gawd-damn, it's all looking rather good!

Actually, he's on the case, but the front page is down for some reason...

YAY! Another great issue by the looks of it. I was giving up hope after my newest WD came in the post. (Actually it wasn't that bad, but that is rare nowadays)

You really need to be joking... :p

Well, I handed my section of Firebase in months ago, so you can assume I'm joking. :)

Looks good. I was a bit worried to see all those un-painted models i the first few pages though, I think bare metal/palstic should be buried somewhere in the middle.

Seriously, hardly anyone visits that section of the site.

We'd rather keep FIREBASE discussion in General 40K and get more detailed feedback from more readers.
