Genestealer Cult Pre-Orders Available

Posted on September 25th, 2016 under , , , , , , . Posted by

So the internet has been awash with images of Genestealer Cults and it appears that it’s quite exciting news! Well I think this is exciting.  Games Workshop really should explore more of the vast background for their universes in my opinion.  There really is enormous scope for this to become something much bigger if it … Continue reading Genestealer Cult Pre-Orders Available

How to Paint Tyranid Carapace for Hive Fleet Kraken

I have returned! After starting full-time work in July, keeping up with the hectic lifestyle of being an islander in summer time and work, sadly my hobby time has suffered heavily. In truth, this is the only thing I managed to paint all summer.

My main army of interest and hobby is Eldar, however I also help my brother with his 40k army, Tyranids. Breaking from the clean and technological shapes of Eldar and moving to the organic and “random” structures found in Tyranids, helped me try new techniques and move my painting skills in a fresh and new direction.

Traitor’s Hate Hits the Field – Disciples of Twilight vs Blood Ravens

Posted on September 21st, 2016 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Traitor’s Hate Hits the Field – Disciples of Twilight vs Blood Ravens

November we have our big annual 40K tournament, the Standish Standoff. I figured I’d start working towards that with my lists, and I also wanted to try out some new stuff in Traitor’s Hate. The list I used is pretty tame, but I was aiming for a theme.

The formation I was trying out was the Helforge Warpack: 1 Warpsmith, 3-5 of Helbrute, Maulerfiend, Forgefiend, and Defiler in any combination. The benefits are getting to Daemonforge twice a game, and one vehicle becomes the Alpha and gains a 4+ invulnerable.

Despair: a short 40k story

Posted on September 20th, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

Hello there. You can call me Blight. I’m a 40k and AoS player from Iowa and I’ve been asked to share this story with you and maybe articles about 40k and AoS if people are interested. Well here goes Despair He had failed. The thought filled him with more dread than awaiting the charge of a greenskin horde. The shaso stared at the corpse of the ethereal his detachment had been assigned to protect. His troops had gathered around the impromptu funeral, some openly wept and he didn’t have the heart to discipline them. They all now bore the burden of allowing one of the greatest tragedies to have ever befallen their sept. It was just supposed to have been

The Road to the Norwegian Championship – Battle Report 1!

The Road to the Norwegian Championship – Battle Report 1!

I usually don’t play a lot of tournaments, but this year I participated in the Norwegian Championships for 40k (it’s in January), and as I finished 3rd from bottom of about 40+ players, I’m putting some hours in this time!

First, my old list was terrible. It was built on CSM CAD with 2 Sorcerers, 20-man squad of CSMs, Havocs, an Aegis Defence Line, and 70 Cultists. This worked terribly. For this year, I hear we’re going up from 1650 to 1850pt, so I’ve constructed a primary Unending Host detachment from the Siege of Vraks book.

Themed Workbench Part One – The Creation of the Ultrasmurfs

Themed Workbench is where I’ll be taking a look at some armies created along a theme, from concept to completion. In amongst my piles of grey plastic are inspirations for ideas.  Some good.  Some not so much. This first story is one that started as a joke then took on a life of it’s own.  The army has been featured on a number of sites around the internet and generally has one of two reactions – love or hate.

Chaos Knight WIP – The End is Near

This past weekend I had a lot of time to work on my Chaos Knight. So much so that by the third day I was burned out. Hobby time is often feast or famine, and man did I feast.

Friday night I got in a solid 3-4 hours of work. The big thing I wanted to accomplish was getting all the various leg armor plates ready to be glued on. I had already done the hard work of the blending prior, so I had to pick out the trim, and get the bone parts done, which I did.

“If you go down to the woods today…” Imperial Guard vs Tyranids Battle Report

Hello there fellow warmongers!  Another batrep for you today, this time a game against Adam and his most excellently painted Tyranid hordes.

As with his Blood Angels in the previous batrep, this is another superbly painted force of Tyranids.  I keep trying to convince him to do his own blog to showcase his work, but so far no luck.  We thought we would mix it up a bit for today’s game as well, as the Eternal War / Maelstrom missions have got a bit stale and we were after something a bit more fluffy.

Traitor’s Hate (and Gripes) for Chaos Space Marines

Posted on September 7th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Traitor’s Hate (and Gripes) for Chaos Space Marines

First of all, I’m pretty surprised the release of a single new CSM warranted a new supplement, but I’ll take what I can get. The new model is amazing and I love it! While he’s “just” mirroring his FW pose in baroque power armour, it works really well. Thus, Khârn the Betrayer’s model is updated for the 41st millenia!

I’ll show Fabius the meaning of fabulous!

At first glance, it may be this supplement simply does what Angels of Death did for SMs – a bunch of formations (11, specifically) in one supplement (remember, formations didn’t exist when the CSM codex came out) and adds new Psychic Disciplines, Tactical Objective Cards (Maelstrom missions didn’t exist either when the CSM codex was released), and updates some minor rules, e.g.
