100 Power Level Astra Militarum Force Vs Dark Angels – 40K Blog

Posted on June 21st, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Approximate Reading Time: 3 minutesI have my very first 100 Power Level Astra Militarum list for you today to read, review and comment on. Its about 1,900 points under the 8th edition points system. Hats off to BattleScribe because moving to 8th edition has been easy! 8th edition on BattleScribe is really good so far, it works and you can easily see the power level of a list alongside the points of a list. I am unsure if others will do this and my group is still getting the grasp of 8th edition. But we decided on 100 power level, then discussed the points that […]

First 8th Edition Games – A Little Dabble – Warhammer 40K Blog

Posted on June 15th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Approximate Reading Time: 7 minutesWell its nearly here! And I have managed to play my first 8th Edition Games. Three small (ish) games using the leaked rules and all the bits and pieces that Games Workshop has been feeding us over the last few months. So far I am impressed, but with some slight concerns. This article is about my experiences and what I took from these games – rather than a breakdown of how the new Guard works. There is a 99% chance I’ll say something here that is wrong. If I do, please let me know in the comments! Speed The speed […]

Analysis: Exploiting 8th Ed, 31" Infantry Charge

Posted on June 14th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

GW did a pretty good job at constraining combo potential in the 8th Ed ruleset, based on the Faction keyword system; however, where that system is relaxed, exploit opportunities present themselves. This time we’ll look at how to make a 31″+ with some Imperium Infantry.
