GMG Reviews – Warhammer 40000 Codex: Chaos Knights

It’s time for another GMG Review! Today we take a look at the latest Codex for 40k, the Chaos Knights. This book expands on the seleciton from Chapter Approved 2018 with new Strategems, Relics, Dreadblades and Alignment abilities with the Infernal and Iconoclast Houses. House Metallum is off the rails and has become an Infernal Household! Joined by a small force of Night Lords, they take on the Aeldari in a 1750pt Matched Play game. NOTES: We made a couple mistakes during the game. The Infernal buff to guns only applies to a single gun per round on a Knight. It wasn’t super relevant but I might have mixed that up on an additional gun once or twice. The Pyrothrone also only causes an auto-explode if you die from a Perils. I did make an example roll however and did pop a six to mention it does limit the exploding size, so it was exploding regardless as I did make a roll; we just messed up why it exploded.

Previews: Archons So Far

Privateer Press has been leaking images of their Archons so far. At least the concept art. They've been doing this on their instagram account by releasing the images in 6 images that go together into a single image.If you've seen the instagram preview page you know that there are six preview shots that just so happen to line up perfectly if you send out the images just so. Anyway, that's the reason for the one gutters between some of the images below. Each image (maybe except the Morrowan one) was leaked with some kind of ominous text. I don't have any of that here.Except this one. I think the Morrowan Archon was leaked as an entire picture somewhere else. If you play Warmachine, you're familiar with the Morrowan iconography on the weapon and shield and belt. Pretty standard angelic fare. "I AM GROOT."The Primal Archon was leaked and the figure pretty much fits the description given. ("Walking mountain.")The Thamarite Archon is pure archer and also the most "angelic" looking archon with little to no

Riot Quest Preview

So the second part of the Devchat discussed Riot Quest, Privateer Press's skirmish game coming out later this year. The first thing they announced was that Riot Quest was sent off to be printed, which means that they expect to have it available to demonstrate at Lock & Load in June and for sale at Gencon in August.Some of the key things about Riot Quest was that they emphasized a pretty light construction rules. Pick up to x to y models (I forget what numbers x and y are....4-10?), play games, draw objective cards, score points, get treasure. 20-35 minutes gameplay.That seems crazy to me. I can't spend 20-35 minutes doing anything in this hobby.One of their warnings about this game is that this isn't Warmachine. It doesn't even use Warmachine mechanics to play, and is not meant to be a hyper competitive game like Warmachine (or even Monsterpocalypse). The game has lots of RNG (random number generator) elements to it. I think they discussed it, or they've discussed the RNG before, but I can't remember whic

Warmachine Oblivion Previews: CID next Wednesday April 17!

Today's DevChat there was a lot of spoiling of information for Warmachine: Oblivion. According to Hungerford and Olsen, they have the Community Development (playtesting) set to start next week Wednesday, April 17, provided that Oz can come back from KingdomCon in one piece (that last part is conjecture on my part).The first part of the spoiler was the three themes that were going to go live with Oblivion.Theme 1: Hearts of DarknessHearts of Darkness has been adjusted from its original wide open play. the word they used was "controversial." They haven't said which casters would be in the theme, but they announced the factions: 1 each from Cygnar, Protectorate, Khador, Crucible Guard, Merc, Cryx? (Not sure about Cryx, I must have missed it, but I'm reading Cryx in other people's notes, so I'll add that here.As part of this, there's a lot of conjecture as to how they will select casters. Like, how thematic will they get with this release or are they looking to push specific playstyles from each faction?It's unli
