Deathwatch Special Issue Ammunition Selector: Bolt Rifle

Posted on May 18th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

You’d think it would be the same chart as the Bolter, just with every shot buffed by -1AP. The maths makes it a little different though:** For the bolt pistol use the chart in the Bolter Selector page.Hellfire really rises to prominence for the Bolt Ri…

Finally Off The Table

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

So after the block painting comes the ink. I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished. This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some … Continue reading Finally Off The Table

Here’s a list taken from Faeit212, who got it from miniwars, who got it from 4chan. Yes, this is quite the chain of whispers, but it looks fairly legitimate and I have no reason to doubt the image.What we can draw from this is that your default weapon …

Necrons and The Future Chapter Tactic of the Space Wolves?
