Who doesn't like terminators?

By TheGravemind

I've always liked terminators, but could never figure out a way to really get them into my blood angel lists. So a while ago I decided to take the plunge and grab up a terminator army. Black reach and bits got me most of the way, and a few last purchases recently finished it up. Well, with the news of Dark angels coming closer and closer, I figured I better finish them up so I can at least use them as deathwing once before the new codex hits and I have to change things up.

Dark Vengeance comes out soon, and I have mine pre-ordered so I'm hoping to get it soon. I'll do a review whenever I get to open it up.

If I hadn't already started...

At Gencon, I passed by and glanced at something. I should have stopped and examined some new plastics more closely....

Destroy This List - 2k Tyranids

by Anonymous Foodie

So here's the deal - I post my 2000 point, all-comer's Nid list, and you tell me how/why it fails at life.

6th Edition and Double Force Orgs

by Anonymous Foodie

There have been a lot of things floating around about 6th... a few rules "quandaries" that seem extremely one-sided to me (of course, I'm a bit biased when it comes to my own opinions), and other shenanigans.  However, there is one thing that people are mussed about that I can do naught but stare and cock my head to the side...

Gencon: The Costumes - Part 2

by Sandwyrm

Gandalf needs high heels!

Here's the rest of the costume pics. Enjoy!

Gencon: The Costumes - Part 1

by SandWyrm

So a Guardsman, a Vindicare, and a Techpriest walk into a bar... :)

Seriously though, one of the best things about Gencon is seeing all of the costumes folks show up in. I've got 71 of these pics, so I'm going to break this up into 2 parts. But I didn't even get pics of half the cool costumes I saw. They were everywhere you went in the convention center and the attached mall. Enjoy!

Gencon: Appreciating The Scale

by Sandwyrm

Having never been to Gencon before, it was a bit of a shock to see just how freakin' huge the show was compared to say, Adepticon. Let me take you on a tour of what I saw.

First 6th Tournament

By TheGraveMind
"My life for the swarm!"
So while Gencon was going on this weekend I went to my first Tournament. There was relatively small turn out, but with a good representation of vanilla marines, dark angels, templar, blood angels, Tau, my Tyranids and others. I had decided to just bring my tyranids as I have them mostly painted and I'm still not sure what I want to do with my Blood Angles. And this is how it went...

Well, At Least I Got Best Painted!

by Sandwyrm

Farmpunk and I played in the Mid-War Flames tournament on Saturday at Gencon. Where I got the schooling I had expected to get at our last tournament. Lost all 3 games. Though the first and second losses were against the guys who came in first and second for best General. So at least I got beat by the best. :)

My DAKs Are Ready For Gencon!

by Sandwyrm

Farmpunk is enjoying himself at Gencon today while I'm stuck at home doing a bunch of chores for Mrs. Sandwyrm (stupid weekend houseguests). But I'll be down there for all of the next two days. Tomorrow I'll be walking around and helping Able Kompanie run their big North Africa tank battle demo. While on Saturday I'll be playing in the Mid-War tournament. So, since I've gotten my painting done (GASP!) early, I thought I'd take a few pics of my 1625 German Panzer army and put them up for all to see.

Using Rule book Missions/deployment.

By TheGravemind

I tried out my tyranids the other day, and lets say it was an interesting game. It was against tau, and a relatively casual list. My Nid list was based off of my 5th ed tourney list, but I was trying a few things, so it wasn't that amazing. Up to this point  in 6th I had been playing NOVA missions (all two games I had played) so we decided to play from the BRB.

Gencon: Run through the jungle

by: farmpunk

I'm going to Gencon. I'm kind of excited. Even though I've lived in Indy for 4 years now, I've only done GenCon Indy once. Even then, it was only for a daytrip with Chambers.

Oh how I love "Marbo"

By Spaguatyrine

As I practice more for 6th I have used Marbo a few times and man does he pack a punch.

A model in labor

By TheGravemind
I've had a little bit of free time lately, and I've been spending it on the hobby side. Today I've been trying to finish up my Tervigon. As you can see it isn't on it's base. That's because I'm painting the base seperate and trying to put a good amount of detail into it.

My second game of 6th

By TheGravemind

I played my second game of 6th edition, trying out a Jumper list this time. My jumper list was mostly built for 1.5k maybe up to 1750, but I stretched it (using some proxies and wasted points). It was again using Nova format and pitted against DE again. In the past this match up has favored me, but we'll see how it goes...

My first game of 6th

By TheGravemind

I may be a little behind the curve, but I finally got my first game of 6th edition in yesterday. Funny thing is I know the rules better than some, being a bookworm at times and such. But my first game was interesting, learned a few things, gained a bit of perspective. I decided to try out my standard 2k BA mech list just to see how things have changed for it.

GW Financials: Profit Sources

by SandWyrm

As I look through GW's financial statement, I am finding a few things that don't look quite as rosy as the summaries would have you believe. Let's have a look at one of them.
