Ok, this one is really going to put the cat amongst the pigeons, hold on to ya hats! When I play 40k I use tough bad ass lists. This is because I don't see the point in using 'fail' units or units which are not very good. You can easily spot the stronger units when reading codices or after play testing i.e I used Soul Grinders in my previous Chaos Daemon list (before current codex), but had no anti air, so switched them to Daemon Princes – this is just good list building and covering all bases to deal with a variety of threats. I also used to use Meganobz when I played Orks, lovely models, but they would get knocked out their ride and then easily instagibbed with meltas,
There’s been a lot of talk about Space Wolves going off the boil recently. Not as many people are taking them to tournaments anymore since there’s (literally) shinier stuff out there in the form of GK and Necrons. Don’t get me wrong I can see why people are attracted to these books. It’s no secret that GK are incredibly powerful and Necrons can be tough to beat. However, I think part of the problem is that people aren’t evolving their lists. There are three types of gamers at tournaments. Those who write a fun list with units they enjoy using, those who come up with an innovative list and play it to its best and finally those who just copy the second group but don’t have the tactical acumen to pull it off. Personally I probably have qualities of all three of those. I try and do something different with fun units but I’m not that great tactically. I have some inspired moments but the people who win tournaments are pretty solid throughout the entire battle
. . . it shot out really fast and was super thick, so now my goblins that I spent weeks slowly cleaning and basing in spare moments look like a three-year old dipped them in blue sludge.
Hey guys, Sorry for the slow weekend here on the blog. I beat Space Marine on Friday, and must say, it was a blast! Just need my roommate to jump onto the Playstation Network and let me play as my beloved Imperial Fists or Alpha Legion! Anyways, I put together my next installment in my Pimp My Bolter series. Very simple, very quick, and very cost-effective too! Materials Needed: Bolter Plasma Pistol Plasticard/Green Stuff This is what happens when you’re an Art Major/History Minor, and you get bored in your Art History Class: As you can see, I like to keep the top-style for my combi-weapons. I did change some stuff from the drawing: Lets let the tutorial speak for me…. 1) Trim the top and the top nub on the front off of your bolter, just like the Combi-Melta tutorial. 2) Take your Plasma Pistol, and remove the front nozzle area. Trim down the bottom of the nozzle slightly so that its flat. 3) Affix the nozzle to the front of the bolter so that it sits just above the bolter muzzle.
On to the second game of my Epilogue series: 2200pts vs Lizardmen. His list was: Slaan (all the good stuff) Lore of Light 20-30 Guard 2 units of 24 warriors, one with spears. 2 units of skirmishing blowpipe skinks Steg engine of gods, skink priest. unit of 3 salamanders. It is a very hefty list, and a tried and true contender for 8th edition. My list had changed and this is what I took: Casquet- Always take the casquet… unit of 5 Ushabti 3 Chariots 30 Tomb Guard with King HLP LP (death) Prince Light horse (bunker for HLP) 16 Archers 10 Archers 50 HW/Sh Skeletons Skullypult – The mission was dawn attack. And from the begginging I was on an off foot… 6 of my units all ended up on my left flank..
So, with the new book in my hands and a few games under my belt I have decided to go on a quest hoping to find the key to success with the new army book in 8th edition. I shall be taking you on a journey for 20 games at 2200pts I shall be reporting on the battles played with general comments on the outcome and performance of my army. It is widely accepted that at -least- 20 games with a certain army against a plethora of opponents will give you insight as to the ebb and flow of an army list. And hence I seek the wisdom of the priests and hope that you can join me on this quest. So, I ask you to gain inspiration from these tales of battle as well as offering your insight to the path ahead. At the end of these 20 games we shall have a better understanding of the Tomb Kings legions and how to use them with tactical and strategical efficiency in game. Epilogue: I shall discuss my preliminary games that I have had with the Kings army and what I have learned from these games. This will give us the basic core for what we are looking for in a 2200pt army. I have had 4 games at this point value, and and 2 games at the 1500pt value, but this is not about the skirmish sized games, this is the tale of great battles. vs Empire: My opponents list consisted of about 1500pts sunk into one unit, this unit was a huge unit of empire knights (40) + 3 characters (BSB, Karl Franz and Priest)
As befitting a millennium old seer, my newest farseer stands atop a dais, flinging doom and storm and people. The planning for this conversion has been on the drawing board for a while now, just needed the final bitz, so it was fast to put together. It fit together auspiciously smoothly, as if it was forseen… He should be able to give those guardian jetbikes a much needed boost. As you might have guessed already, the bitz were taken from a high elf chariot, support weapon platform, farseer (sans feet), shining spear antennae, and some extra heavy weapon bitz. Hope you like him, Ricalope.
In order to better demonstrate my painting process (as well as show how messy my painting table is now) I’ve taken some photo’s of models at all stages of the process e.g. straight out of the blister/still on sprue, cleaned and constructed, primered, first few splashes of colour, tidying up and then the finished piece.
With the hoopla surrounding Chaperhouse Studio’s imminent lawsuit, I picked up a couple of their upgrade kits before they get shut down. Specifically, I was interested in their “Mk. I Rhino” upgrade (downgrade?) kits – the pictures on the site were intriguing, but I wasn’t able to find any pictures of how the kit looked actually assembled on a current Rhino.
