The Armchair General by Mike Foulks

30 Oct

This blog series is dedicated to failure.  More specifically I will be writing about mistakes I have made or seen made at tournaments and the lessons they have taught me.  Experience is absolutely the best teacher, but mocking a noob comes a close second – just watch the Leeroy video on youtube if you don’t believe me.

The Evolution of the Hive Mind by Mark Perry

29 Oct

While I have previously posted on my thoughts following the last tournament outing for my Nids, I decided to take them to Open War XVI for an outing. Due to potential spoiler alert, I am not posting this until after the Tournament but am writing this in advance as it is about how the list if formed at this stage and not yet about reflection on the tourney.

Tayne’s Tau Tactics: Forsaking the Plasma by Graeme Nicholls

27 Oct

This time round, I’m going to discuss my third arm: Tau. (That’s right, I luuurve the overpowered codices, Tau, Dark Angels and Daemons all the way.)

With my Tau, I always, always took at least one Crisis team bearing a Plasma Rifle, a Missile Pod and a Multitracker, letting each model shoot 3 or 4 times each, with some AP2 for good measure. Who wouldn’t want this? Each Crisis Suit becomes a lethal machine! Almost…

20 Things To Fix in the Space Marine Codex by Digital Unicorn

26 Oct

I’m a Space Marine player through and through. No not the red ones, the blue ones. No, not those blue ones, the ones that aren’t Marneus Failgars progeny. Yep, thats them. So as you can imagine, it infuriates me to no end when all I see plastered across the internet are flashy tabloid headlines. Blog articles called “Blood Angels Dex spells end to Codex Marines” and “Space Vampires suck the life out of Space Romans” or “Space Vikings raid Sicarius’ codex wishlist and GW publishes it” . Each “educated” gamer telling me that my beloved smurfs are a pointless waste and that Blood angels and Space wolves do everything they can do better. That if I had any sense i’d buy a spray gun and a tub of Blood Red or Space Wolves grey and call it a day for my chosen chapter.

The Voice Speaks by Gary ‘The Voice’ Percival

25 Oct

 

So what’s been shaking this week?  Well the biggest thing was that the 40kuk pod cast descended on to Octoberfest, a big team/singles tourney daaan saaaaff. You could enter as a team of 5 or on your tod and then it was a normal 1750 tournament but the positions of the team members got taken into account to work out the team trophy at the end too. So you ended up with the overall winner, best general, best painted, best sportsman and best team.   If Dave has pulled his finger out then you know the 40kuk guys won the team event huzzzah!!! And if he hasn’t, I just spoiled it, lol.
