Forge World Releases Glaive Super Heavy

Forge World Releases Glaive Super Heavy

Forge World has released the newest Space Marine super-heavy tank, the Glaive! From Forge World: Space Marine Legion Glaive The Legion Glaive Super-heavy Special Weapons Tank is a variant of the Fellblade. Armed with a Volkite Carronade, it is designed to destroy xenos beasts and incinerate enemy light vehicles at a single sweep. While the Glaive has been issued to all eighteen Legiones Astartes in limited quantities, the Salamanders and Dark Angels have long been noted to field Glaives as a matter of course; the XVIIIth Legion’s artifice is more than sufficient to maintain and replicate the arcane Volkite technology, while the provenance and honour of the Ist Legion means that their war matériel and weaponry are ancient indeed. The Legion Glaive, designed by Stuart Williamson, is a multi-part resin and plastic kit that is packed with detail. It is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 28th June and experimental rules to field this powerful super-heavy as part of a Space Marine Legion army are available to download now. The Glaive is an interesting variation of the Fellblade and has an awesome gun on it the Volkite Carronade, whose rules are here . Expect to see one of these in my Raven Guard army! Loken

New Eldar Codex Unit Reviews – Fast Attack

New Eldar Codex Unit Reviews – Fast Attack

Probably the weakest section of the codex but that’s often the case recently. Once again the aspect warriors are still nice models but with mediocre rules they’ll not see the light of day very much. However, this section does contain the only reasonable dedicated anti-air choice in the codex. Swooping Hawks The fun of swooping hawks in the old codex was dropping them in, pie-plating a unit then taking off again before any reprisals. They can still do that in the new book but as before it’s a case of whether you think the shenanigans are worth it. They have a decent amount of firepower but it’s only S3 AP5. The most interesting thing about them is their appropriately titled special rule “Herald of Victory”. With it they can deep strike without scatter. When you combine this with Skyleap they can be doing their grenade pack thing and in turn 5 drop in to contest an objective late on. They’ll be an irritation to your opponent but they won’t necessarily win you the game if it goes beyond turn 5.

Top 5 HQs in 40k

Top 5 HQs in 40k

Hi Mark, Was having an interesting discussion down the club last night about the top 5 HQ choices in the game, i.e. from any codex. It actually turned out to be a lot harder to decide than expected, and where everyone had there own personal top 5 at the beginning of the night, almost no one could decide on their personal top 5 by the end of the night, let alone agree on a definitive list. Once we started factoring in things such as cost, force multiplying factors and buff abilities along with brute strength it became a quagmire of uncertainty. I thought it might make a good article on the blog, and I’d be interested to hear your take on who is the ultimate king of the tabletop. I’m with holding my personal favourites to avoid bias

First up GW Australia got back to me extremely quickly and have already dispatched a replacement army book for me which is just awesome. Damage to the book aside I have to say its pretty damn good.

8 Days of Warzone Resurrection: The Brotherhood

8 Days of Warzone Resurrection: The Brotherhood

When the worlds of man were faced with the threat of destruction at the hands of the Dark Legion and the avarice of their own warring superpowers, it was the Brotherhood who saved them. It was the Brotherhood that had grown from a small movement of the disenfranchised into an organization more powerful than any other before it. Within its ranks existed the righteousness and the hope of a race on the brink of extinction. In that dark and Godless time, salvation was borne on the shoulders of one man and the desperate pleas of a race, weary of the constant slaughter, received hope. Humanity rallied under the banner of the charismatic Durand, the followers of the Light united humanity as they had never been before and drove back the Darkness. Today, the Brotherhood is represented across the solar system, from Mercury to the distant Pluto. Wherever the light of the Brotherhood falls, the battle against the Darkness continues. At least that is how it’s supposed to be. Even today, a thousand plus years later, the Brotherhood represents an all governing, unearthly power that is personified by one man. The Cardinal is the spiritual leader of the solar system.

Hobby Malaise: How’re my Armies Doing?

Hobby Malaise: How’re my Armies Doing?

So, I’m feeling kind of low about 40k. Part of it is that Death From the Skies feels like a slap in the face to all of us who shop at and support local game stores. Part of it is that I just finished school and have plowed all of that excess time and energy into 40k, which I’m now feeling slightly directionless with. Part of it is I feel like my armies need toys I haven’t bought yet to really be competitive. I went 0-3 for the 2nd tournament in a row with my Space Marines Saturday. This wasn’t entirely unexpected, its a fully mechanized list that includes a 10 man scout squad, a Land Speeder Storm, and a Storm Talon, so I wasn’t expecting to slay people, but even still it makes me doubt the army a bit since I’m 1-6 with them. Of course, that’s part of the problem, I’m running a list in tournaments with tight time constraints that I haven’t sufficiently playtested. But of course, its hard for me to get out and playtest because its more than an hour each way to the game store due to biking to the train station, taking the light rail, and then biking the 2 miles to my store. Longer if the trains are running slow.
