An odd thing happened at Horned Gobbo this weekend not once during the entire weekend did I engage in the usual tournament ritual of re-writing my army list after every game and at the end of the each tournament day.

Onto the Elites section then. There’s 6 units to cover here and with the exception of the Harlequins they can all take a Wave Serpent which as I’ve already discussed is pretty deadly. Howling Banshees Always pretty weak in the old codex, Howling Banshees may be slightly cheaper but they’re still a waste of points in my opinion. On the face of it some fast moving I5 power weapons seem great but with S3 and Doom being less likely they’re perhaps slightly weaker than they were before. With only a 4+ save they really suffer from not having an assault vehicle and for that reason they won’t leave the shelf. Striking Scorpions Whilst still an assault unit in a shooty world, Striking Scorpions have a couple of benefits over their female cousins. Firstly their S4 which means they don’t rely on Doom so much. They also gain an extra S3 attack at I10 thanks to mandiblasters. Granted this isn’t as good as the extra S4 attack they used to get but it’s at I10 so against some opponents it’s better. The other advantage they have over the banshees is that they carry grenades.

Up against Jeff Kents Lizards tomorrow (I think – or it could be his Full Monty Dark Elves) with my new High Elves.
Here is a summary of information, much of which I covered already, some of which is new.
The next installment of GW relentless 40K release schedule is the long awaited Eldar update. In what seems to be the standard format now, Eldar are getting a new dual-kit flyer, massive walker thing, a couple of new finecast models, a plastic single model and some updated plastics.
The release of the “Building Wargame Terrain” book by Tony Harwood of Dampf’s Modelling Page is coming closer. In his book the creator of beautiful Grand Manner houses descibes his techniques for building and painting wargames terrain. Over at his blog Tony is trying to find out how many interested wargamers and modelers are out there. So if you are seriously considering to buy a copy of the book upon release I suggest you head over there and say so in the comments.
