Today i take a look at the newest Supplement for Warhammer 40,000 – Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising. This new book adds rules to the 2017 Codex: Craftworlds and 2018 Codex: Drukhari, as well as brand-new format for playing the Ynarri.
Warhammer 40,000 – I love Jump Pack Infantry, they’re not always the best choice but man I love moving fast and hitting something. Sadly Assault Marines are really better as a mobile firebase like Chaos Raptors, they’ve gotten a bit better with the advent of Angels of Death but jumping around with melta guns or flamers is still a better role for them. In previous editions I would occasionally run lightning claw equipped Vanguard Vets as a throwback to the unit Shrike used to bring with him back in Third Edition. They were ok but really expensive and rarely made back their points. At the end of Seventh Edition that unit got way better with the Raven Guard formations that allowed for first turn charges but once that went away my clawed maniacs went back to being shot off the table before they could connect.With the new Space Marine codex Vanguard Vets have the option to take dual chain swords. With a base of two attacks, plus two for the ch
The Quest concludes! Having defeated all four Strongholds the Explorers embark on a massive journey into the depths of the Fortress to secure the Hidden Vault!
Warhammer 40,000 – For literal decades the metal Abaddon struck fear into the hearts of loyalist dogs on tables the world over. His tiny Napoleonic presence leading the masses of cultists and heretics in crusades leaving a trail of destruction. That all changed with the release of a new plastic kit, now the Lord of the Black Legion has a stature suitable to his station. An iconic release like this has players scrambling to tweak their lists to include the new hotness. Which leads me to my tale.
Warhammer 40,000 - Big stompy robots with huge guns. Love ‘em or hate ‘em Imperial Knights are here to stay. Most of the Knight commissions I’ve done have be a unique color scheme that doesn’t line up with any of the Houses. Most of them have also been magnetized extensively. From a cost perspective this tends to make more sense to most players. The unique scheme allows them to play any house or freeblade combination they’d like without their opponent hassling them about the color scheme. While the magnets let them change up loadouts on a whim. When you pay $150 or so for a model you tend to want to get the most bang for your buck.
Alright, quite a big leap from the Olleys I painted earlier I reckon, here's a new(ish) or at least relatively recent model (probably outdated by GW's infernal release standards) but one I'm really chuffed to have done since it marks the beginnings of my Blackstone Fortress project.I've bought the box with plenty of ideas in mind and real life being what it is, guess what, nothing went according to the plan. The fact remains the box is packed with brilliant models and I have a use for each of them and when I'm done I fully intend to force friends into playing the whole thing ! ^^Read Moar Skullz »
Alright so I've been a little quiet, working on too many things at once but at least it means being busy (mostly) doing stuff and amongst the many things I was working on, there's this team of Adeptus mechnicus designed by Bob Olley.After the really pleasing challenge around Trish Carden a few months back, I've decided to ask Bob Olley to judge another friendly competition based in his work this time ! So this month was the #paintabob marathon for plenty of us and great fun it was.I really wondered about which models I would pick as Bob's sculpted a mind blowingly large amount of stuff and I finally settled for his iconic Adpetus Mechanicus range.

Warhammer 40,000 – Units come in and out of favor every time there is a new release for 40k. I’ve been painting a variety of Ultramarine units for this client. He’s working on rounding out his collections and getting all the units he might want to filed painted up. With the new space marine codex I feel like he’s going to be adding quite a few more units to the collection since almost everything got cheaper and/or better.When they first came out Centurions were ridiculed as something silly and dumb, why would a marine in armor don a second armor suit, and why did look like the Power Loader from aliens with power fists and guns strapped below them. But being as their initial release was during the “Reign of Grav” they saw significant play. The assault variants were pretty universally dismissed as not good.
Among the fine new kits available for Aeronautica Imperialis is a second variant of the Marauder, that isn't part of the Wings of Vengeance starter kit. Reason enough to take a look on the Marauder Destroyers boxed set. The Marauder is the standard heavy bomber of the Imperial Navy and due to its heavy armoured […]
Warhammer 40,000 – Nurgle seems to be really popular in 8th Edition. Which makes sense when you consider how important screening and board control are to most of the missions. That paired with a pretty amazing product line means many of these disease ridden daemons have traversed my tabletop.
It’s time for another GMG Review! Today we take a look at Games Workshop’s new Codex Supplements for the Space Marines – the Iron Hands & Raven Guard.
Warhammer 40,000 – Quite often I have clients come back to add additional units to their armies. With a living system like 40k has become points fluctuate with the Chapter Approved releases, rules change with new supplements or FAQs and as such a 2,000 point army may find itself in need of some reinforcements. Such is the case with these Space Wolves I painted a few years ago.While not a huge amount of new models, these will help to round out his force and give him some better options.
Check out what I painted this week and take a look at upcoming projects!
