Ad Nauseum

I follow the blogs of several of the brightest warhammer minds in the world.  These bloggers give great army list advice and are great players to boot.  They can disect a game and know exactly how to win or how you lost.  This is great for a newer player, but why am I so bored? We are stuck in a cycle of repeating the same information over and over again.  Need a BA list?  Take a libby, honor guard, 2x sanguinary priests, 2x sanguinary guard, 2 10 man assault squads, 2x vanguard vets.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

I am starting to loathe getting on to google reader simply because I don't like the fact that I am not finding any new information.  Inevitably in warhammer discussion, the big minds rapidly find out the most cunning army lists and disperse their knowledge.  Everyone follows their advice and we talk it to death.  Then we hope and pray for a new codex or FAQ to fuel more conversation.  Ad nauseum.  This happens time and again.  Even in WFB. 

So, what do we do to infuse the conversation with originality and make better player?  Talk about it.  What do we need?  More battle reports?  More people writing new missions?  Veteran players willing to play sub-optimal and give their input on how to win with them?  What makes these blogs and the conversation we share not become the equivalent of the interweb's old, moldy bread.
