Editorial: 40K In The News? Another Perspective.

Recently, I talked about an article written about 40K, the hobby, and the people, by a journalist in Greece, and the negative attitude that journalist took towards the hobby and the people.

Well today I offer an alternate perspective. This wonderful little video by students in the Film and Video Production program at SAIT Polytechnic, is chock full of interviews, sweeping scenic views of wonderfully painted armies and miniatures, and showcases a very interesting event that was run in Calgary in 2011, depicting the opening campaign during the Horus Heresy, in the Istvan system. All of this wrapped around with excellent production value.

The key take aways from this video aren't the slickness of the presentation, or the beautiful miniatures, but the people. It showcase candid vids of games in progress, and how people interact on a very cerebral level. The interviews show how diverse we are as a community, but how we have many things in common. It shows just how social the community is, and how we need to be psychologically well rounded and confident, as we interact with a vast variety of people in our hobby.
