Ciaran is in with his Adeptus Mechanicus to face my Space Wolves in a 2000pt Matched Play game!
Kevin and his Wolves of Fenris face down the Questoris Imperialis in this CA:2017 game of ‘Roving Patrol’!
Once again, Games Workshop has me in its greedy clutches. I saw this coming when they announced the "relaunch" of the Lord of the Rings SBG but to my surprise I got hooked on the new edition of Kill Team... So here we are... After resisting the call of the 40k verse since its 2nd edition, I finally surrendered. I got my brushes out again last weekend and painted my first Kill Team: Glorious Space Wolves in Mark III armor. These guys have been trapped in the Warp since the Burning of Prospero and have just been spit out now with the coming of the Great Rift.You all know this feeling, right? You're happily butchering your way through some heretic sorcerers and suddenly there's a bright blue light. Before you know it, you're somewhere completely different, your company is nowhere to be found, your Primarch is MIA, your phone is dead and the Emperor looks changed too... This is what happened to these guys and this is why they look so angry.This Kill Team is at 98 points now. I had a first game with them and
About a subtle as a brick to the face that title.It's been a mad week, with Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, new reporting systems and other events kicking off, hence the total lack of posts. I have been saving this for a while, at least until the Genestealer Cults investigation is complete. I'm unlikely to finish until next week though, so enjoy this small preview of my new "Space Wolf" Great Company colour scheme.Yes, this post and the piece I did on Magnus are two of the forms of suicide on Fenris.I do like how the base green came out, and unlike many similar guides didn't need anything apart from standard Citadel paints. A proper guide is incoming!Until next time! Hopefully! If I can avoid the Sons of Russ a few days longer...Thanks for reading.If you liked what you saw, and you want to help out, please leave a comment. Sharing this with your friends, and following me on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ would also be hugely appreciated.If you have anything you want me to look at, let me know in the comments bel
Jason is back for another game in our Campaign, this time pitting the Space Wolves against the Adeptus Mechanicus in ‘Death in the Dark’ from the Astartes Kill Team expansion.
This is half a thought I had about Magnus the Red being more of a Viking Primarch than Leman Russ. I never quite had time to research the idea, but I thought I'd share the half-finished idea with you all now for discussion. Why? Because it's blog post day, I still have 5 hours of school work to do and it's already 9pm.Enjoy the idea, and see if you can flesh it out a bit more than I have!Whilst everyone considers Leman Russ to be the quintessential Viking primarch due to his reputation fo heavy drinking and general combat demeanour (a fancy way of saying he likes to hit stuff with a sword), Magnus is actually a much better candidate to represent the Norse in 40K.You might be thinking that he much more clearly represents the Egyptians. Well, there's a difference between visual aesthetic and plot themes. Everything about Magnus hints at a far more Northerly inspiration than Ra or others in the Egyptian pantheon.In fact... he's Odin.Let's start with some gentle, visual similarities.Odin is a one eyed man, u
The Space Wolves enter the fray! For unknown reasons the Wolves of Fenris have arrived on Fortis Binary and are hunting the Adeptus Mechanicus through the ruins!
NOVA was this last weekend and man was it a BLAST. It is definitely a smooth run operation and I plan on going back again for a third time next year. Last year I took my all Death Rider Army to the NOVA GT and Trios. This year I intended to do the Trios again, but due to team mate issues, I instead went to DC and did the tourist thing on the day of the trios. This is one of the untold bonuses of NOVA, you are practically in Washington, and taking an uber or the Metro to the museums/monuments is easily done and worth it if you are not from the area. But after a day of site seeing I got to jump into the NOVA Narrative! Check out their mission pack here. Some really fun and cool missions you should try at home (especially Shuttle Crash and Refinery IMO).My 2500 point army. All my armies would be made from this!I had started this article a few days ago, but now I feel I must temper my enthusiasm before I launch into the review.Edit: I leave the following 2 paragraphs for completions sake, but I wa
Primaris Marines do two things well; take a hit and be easy to collect. They might not be as flash as Tacticals or as unique as Scouts, but they'll be a strong anvil to throw at the enemy. And they do have their own tips and tricks too!In talking about the units in detail I run the risk of reproducing the Core manual, which then skirts dangerously close to copy write infringement. As such I will try to include as many details as needs to be clear, but if you want more you will need to buy the book. What will be included is:Name of the unitDifferent models in that unit (maximum number in brackets)Wargear options (but keep in mind they can’t carry everything at once!)AbilitiesSpecialisationsAny other important pieces will be included in the analysis itself. Right, let’s get started.IntercessorModels: Intercessor, Intercessor Gunner (2), Intercessor Sergeant (1)Wargear: Bolt rifle, Bolt pistol, Frag and Krak grenades, auto-bolt rifle, Stalker bolt rifle, Auxiliary Grenade launcher (Gunner only), Chainsword
Space Marines have a frighteningly broad range of strategies available to them, as you would expect from a Faction which needs to contain quite a few Chapter themes and identities (close combat Blood Angels and sneaky shooty Raptors as opposite combat styles come to mind). I’ve written way more than I wanted to on this post, so settle in… this is going to be a long one. And we’re only covering Scouts and Tactical Marines!In talking about the units in detail I run the risk of reproducing the Core manual, which then skirts dangerously close to copy write infringement.

We’re kicking off our look at the Space Marines by analysing their tactics first, before we get into speaking specific units. I’ve written way more than I intended to on this topic, so settle in!The tactics for the Space Marines fall into two general categories: general ones usable by anybody and model specific tied to a particular model. Whilst it might look like they have more Tactics than other factions on the surface, the majority are quite situational, and you’ll probably be looking to use the Basic Tactics first.General TacticsTactic: Death to the TraitorsUse when you select a model to fight in the Fight phaseTo hit rolls of 6+ result in an extra attack against that modelOnly useable against Heretic AstartesCost: 1CPThis is a similar, more restricted version of the Zealot tactic. I’ve gone over that one already in the Zealot specialisation post and the same criticism applies here. It’s not one I’d spend precious CP on, unless I had tooled up a Marine to kick out half a dozen attacks… and even then there
