I know, I know, I'm late. Just came back from Oz yesterday and somehow my boss expected me to catch up with work first :). Today we have a lot of news from Warlord Games and Mantic Games, additionally, a brand new preview from Harwood Hobbies and a short movie featuring ZombieSmith's Quar!
Goatboy here again - asking the eternal question that all "reviewers" must ask themselves whenever they review a new set of rules. Is this set of numbers and fluff any good? Is it worth my time to build and create a list? Do I need to even care about it?
Hello again BoLS readers Wiley One here again, and this time I brought a fire extinguisher. A quick note on my previous article. I am a competitive gamer and that’s what works for me. To each his own and please take my reviews and opinions for what they are: one mans ramblings about little plastic men. That being said, on with the article.
I read on several forums that 40k isn't a balanced game and that GW doesn't test their rules or codexes. People counter that a company investing millions of pounds into printing of books and models would make sure their game play is tested. So what's going on?
MBG here with the kicksoff of a new series of articles Conversion Potential. The aim of these random musings is to show off something I saw that is awesome and how it can be used in the hobby (and hopefully see someone do it cause I don't have the time to- sad panda).
This week I feature a model from the Hell Dorado miniature game that is just brimming with possibilities.
A long time ago (at least in Internet time) I posted an article over on Blood of Kittens. It was the first article ever for the blog (has it really been that long). This particular post focused some dime store psychology on the typical Imperial Guard players I encountered over the years.
Mr. Black here, and let's take a moment to discuss some essential things you should be adding to your Warmachine lists. Hell, you may even be adding them without even thinking about it! Let's dive right in...
So I got two Storm Raven kits to convert over to the Goat Angels. Yes I know that all I am doing is making the internet mad and having legions of people kick me in the jimmie - but come on Spike covered Storm Ravens sound pretty freakin cool! So while I get my plastic models of doom ready here is the initial play list I will throw down probably in the next week or so.
Recently I posted a tactical article how to play against other assault armies using the Counter Punch method. You hold your army in reserve and watch how your opponent deploys to find a weakness you can exploit. Focus big chunks of your army on separate enemy units to quickly destroy them using your mobility. DoA has a lot of advantages versus other assault armies and the Counter Punch method can be very effective...
My friend and I got an Early War game in tonight. I still don't quite have enough stuff to make a legal 1750 Infantry list for my French, so ran with tanks tonight. Brian ran with his Czech Panzers as well, but tried to squeeze in some of his recently painted stuff. The mission is Breakthrough and I roll for attacker.
My first army in Warhammer 40K was Grey Knights. I spent the better part of 4th Ed. 40K footslogging my pure GK army into Nidzilla, Tau Suit spam and Dual Lash. Sure, things could of been better if I ran 2-3 Land Raiders, but I didn't see a point in bringing expensive transports in an army that's already so expensive. Now that the Grey Knight codex is right around the corner, I have to admit that I'm pretty excited. What am I excited about? I'm excited about ice-cold revenge. Let's take a look at how this newest flavor of Space Marines should fare against everyone else.
Hello BoLS Nation! Wiley One here with my first thoughts on the newest book set to release for Warhammer Fantasy, Orcs and Goblins. This article is going to be the first of many, I'm sure, taking you, the reader, through the book step by step.
More or less every summer G.W brings out a new expansion to play 40k in another exciting new way. Last year we got Spearhead which seemed to flop like a dead sardine. Looking at the other expansions all seemed to have more or less gone down the pan with the exception of one; Apocalypse.
Goatboy here again - talking about the new kid on the block - Grey Knights. So before I begin let me just say this - there will be no Grey Goats. None. Nothing. Nada. I like the way the Grey Knights look and would have had an army if I had still stuck with the game before my first marriage withdrawal. So with that out of the way - lets talk - Coffee Talk!
Hey everyone, Crazy Red Praetorian here with more of my thoughts on the hobby. I got back into the tournament scene about 3 month ago. My first tournament back, I felt like Dave Chappelle at a clan rally, when I walked in with IG.
Here we go again, and we have a lot of news: Warlord Games, Infinity, Mantic Games, Wyrd Miniatures and Spartan Games! Additionally, a brand new preview from On the lamb Games and the coolest 15mm army I've ever seen (seriously, I'm going to buy them although I'm pretty sure I'll never play with them :D). But see for yourself:
Please lets all hold a moments silence for the passing of a dear friend; the meltagun. I bet you're all saying "Mercer what are you on about you crazy fool?" well, pull up a seat and let me tell you...
This weekend I had the nice experience of being surprised by a gaming event. I went out to Warwick, Rhode Island to play in an 1850 40k tournament at Templecon and was completely unprepared for what I saw. More on the tournament in a bit.
