Guest Article: Unit Design and Balance

Guest Article: Unit Design and Balance

Total Rethink: Unit Design and Balance By Mephistoned I don’t know about anyone else, but I frequently find myself scratching my head and (other hard to reach places) over GW’s unit design and costing. On the one hand we have the laughably ineffective mutilators, on the other the terrifyingly cost effective nightscythe, and all shades of expensive, broken and mediocrity in between. I’ll forgive codex entries that were not written for 6th such as the vendetta, but now we have the new Eldar codex and I am seeing the same rotten old mistakes being made again. Banshees? Come on! Sigh. Now it might seem the problems of unit design and cost are connected – just lower the points cost and everything is fixed right? Well, no actually. Frankly, with those rules, even if you were giving mutilators away for 25 points a pop, I still might give them the finger just for the opportunity cost of a lost FOC slot, and the fact that they aren’t likely to do anything.

Blog Wars 5 – My Battle Reports

Blog Wars 5 – My Battle Reports

Head back a few posts to find my army list. I’ll keep the battle reports short this time (or at least I’ll try – I failed! ). I’ll be writing up some more in-depth after action thoughts about my Tau list in a separate post. Game One – Tau vs. Space Marines Mike had generously agreed to fill the spot left by someone who’d dropped out on the day itself!?! He quickly scrawled an army list down and we started our game with an hour already gone! By the time we’d done all the pre-game rolling and deployed there was just over an hour to go I think. Needless to say the game was a little rushed. We were playing Purge The Alien on Vanguard. Mike had a crapload of terminators with Pedro Kantor, a couple of tactical squads, aegis line and three stormtalons.

Blog Wars 5 – The Aftermath (and 200 followers!)

Blog Wars 5 – The Aftermath (and 200 followers!)

Before I go any further I wanted to point out that at the start of the year one of my resolutions was to push for 200 followers. Well we’re about half way through 2013 and I’m up to 200 today!! I’ll have to look through my other resolutions and see how I’m getting on with them! Anyway, a big thanks to everyone who reads, the followers thing means more to me than pageviews so I really appreciate it. Blog Wars 5 was held at the North West Gaming Centre in Stockport today. We had new record of 30 players all competing for the crown which had been previously controlled by Andy Humphris. I knew we’d be having a new winner today and, without any further beating about the bush, I’m pleased to announce that winner as Franco Marrufo with his dirty, dirty broadside spam Tau and Eldar list. He never really looked in danger of not winning throughout the day but it would’ve been interesting to see him play Andy for it. Maybe next time eh? Chris Benstead took second with a Chaos Space Marines army that he hadn’t used before the day. Respect to Chris for that but it doesn’t say much about the rest of us! In third place was Rob McDougall who beat his good mate Frank Marsh by a single point.

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Army List

The Road to Blog Wars 5: Army List

It was always a given that I’d be taking Tau Empire to my first Blog Wars tournament. The real challenge, for me at least, is settling on an army list. Preferably with enough time to actually open.clean.assemble.paint the thing! See what I did there? Digital Codex: I have to give a brief thumbs up here to the digital codex. There are some things I don’t like about it, such as it’s size (in MBs) and cost. On a more serious note, I’d like to be able to access it from machines other than my iPad, such as my iPhone or iCloud account on my PC/Mac, but I’ll live with this for now. Generally speaking the codex is a really good electronic document. Games Workshop have done a convincing job of moving into the 21st century here, this isn’t just a PDF of the print codex. Instead it’s a shiny pretty thing which is functional too

On 40K Hiatus: Duration Undetermined

On 40K Hiatus: Duration Undetermined

No, I am not leaving 40K. No, I am not quitting 40K. I am taking a hiatus, a break. Now, don't get me wrong, I was all motivated for 6th edition and I find it extremely fun to play. I even painted up 2000 points for the Independent Characters Hobby Challenge. However, interest in the game locally has dramatically waned, to the point it is hard to find a game. Therefore, I have decided that I will take this opportunity to… Read more »

Eldar Codex Review – HQ

Eldar Codex Review – HQ

Kicking off with the Eldar codex review is the HQ, lets see what tasty little leader elves we have: Avatar of Khaine The Avatar has increased in points, though is now BS10, gained an extra wound and attack along with becoming I10 – for the Eldar god of war that’s not too bad. The Avatar also now gets fleet, which is an awesome ability to have as it allows units to re-roll run distances.
