At the beginning of any endeavor, we always have grandiose plans on what we will do, what we will accomplish, and how great it will turn out. However, the reality often falls short of these idealized plans. Personally, I have found that this is because in the past I have set unrealistic goals for myself. Why do I bring this up? Well, I am getting ready to jump into Warmachine and Hordes with a Slow-Grow/Journeyman League and I have to plan out my army from 15 points to 50 points. In addition, the first 25 points has to be with either a Privateer Press Battle-Box or an alternate approved Battlebox; however, the final 50 points does not have to include these models. So, I am stuck with the
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 »
It appears that the
Just wanted to post this really quick. I have made a quick switcheroo at the start of my Warmachine/Hordes endeavor. I just was not feeling the Jacks or Cryx. Don’t get me wrong, I know they are an extremely strong faction, but I like more organic factions; after all, my 40K army is Daemons. As I really didn’t have much in the way of models, it was not a huge change. Plus, I like playing the underdog and from what I can gather, Skorne is considered a bit of an underdog. Anywho, More to come as I start assembling and building my own models! In addition, the web seems to have eaten my two Cryx posts, so I guess it was foreordained!
Purchasing models for a new game while you are still learning how to play it can be a frustrating endeavor. I know that fault lies with me and that I should have
I am still playing Warhammer 40K and I am still playing my Daemons without allies. I am really enjoying the Flying Monstrous Circus build I have been playing since right after the book released. In addition to the Keeper of Secrets and 2 Daemon Princes pictured above, I have also added a third Daemon Prince, Great Unclean One, Lord of Change, and Fateweaver to the mix. Currently, I am painting up the third Daemon Prince and the Great Unclean One as our escalation league moves into 1750 points. Now, I know the popular choice is the Bloodthirster, and I agree he is full of badassery; however… Read more »
Warmachine and Hordes; this will be my second foray into Warmachine and Hordes. My first foray was a very short three month endeavor about one year ago that resulted in me selling off my Legion of Everblight army.
Wiser men than I, from a diverse set of backgrounds and occupations have said in one way or another than in order to succeed, in order to be successful, you must evolve and/or adapt in order to stay abreast of change. H.G. Wells said it like this, “adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative.” Whether you or I like it, the Chaos Daemons have changed. Gone are the days of Fatecrusher, Flamer/Screamer Spam, or Fearless and Eternal Warrior Cavalry Lists. The new codex has ushered in dynamically different book that plays nothing like its predecessor, in terms of style or even model count. Personally, this has led to dramatic changes with my Old Chaos Daemon Army; the first of which is I am now calling it my Chaos Army…. Read more »
Month three is not even over and I have already finished my Monthly commitment for the Independent Character hobby challenge! In case you are counting, that is three for three! This is a big deal to me because last time I tried this challenge, I posted for two months, failed to make either commitment and then got sidetracked playing my Grey (Green) Knights.
I will start this article by saying that I am a fan of the new Chaos Daemon Codex. While it is still early, it really gives me the type of army that I like, an army with a lot of solid choices. The one sad part about the new codex is the fact that I am going to have to paint a whole lot more models as my troops choices are woefully undermanned at this point in time. While I do not mind painting, it is a wee bit disappointing as I am back to about 1250 points of playable Daemons due to the changes the codex brought. Let me say I like these changes, it will just require me to paint more….this is because… …many of the models I had already purchased an painted do not work as a cohesive “tournament” force anymore. This is because I had planned on going all Tzeentch with a few Nurgle Squads for objective holding. While that army is still a valid and playable army (thank you GW), it is not an army that is designed well enough to withstand tournament play. This is because instead of GIFTS, many of the previous powers are now Psychic Abilities and have a greater chance of being shut down. This loss of reliability coupled with a decrease in durability and hitting power means that I am scrambling to get an army together in a rather shortened time frame
