40k: Army List Building 101

View Comments

Mercer here and today I am going to talk about list building, it's something we all have to do, so you should be clued up on it. List building isn’t just a case of throwing a few choices together from your codex and calling it a day. Copying from White Dwarf isn't a particular good idea either! Remember, GW wants to sell models so they want you to show as many in a game as possible, but anyway...

Bad Dice Blues

By Black Blow Fly

I feel I have been recently plagued by the much hated bad dice syndrome. I know it's not a good idea to blame the dice for your losses but sometimes what else can you say?

View Comments

Today's martial house focus is on the Flameguard of the Protectorate of Menoth.  Each group within the Flameguard is tasked with a different duty, with the Temple Flameguard acting as guardians for religious sites, the Cleansers as the disciplinary arm of the Protectorate, and the Daughters of the Flame acting as covert strike force.  Let's dive right in!

Warhammer Fantasy 8th launched last autumn with a monumental hardcover tome, an over the top boxed set, and fancy army books - so why isn't 40k getting the highbrow treatment?

Warmachine: Put some Minion in your Mercenary!

View Comments


Other than a couple of quick games with Drake McBain when he appeared, my Mercenary army has remained largely unplayed since the release of MkII. This is a shame really, since not only did Mercenaries probably get some of the most improved rules out of all the factions, they also got some cool new toys.

Guest Post: Bryce963 - Rules Legal & Gaming

View Comments


Those of us in Austin are all familiar with the awesome that is Bryce963 - I met him while working at an FLGS. He's been gaming off and on since about 2000, had his glory days in Austin, but has now moved to Lubbock to go to law school. He has a Space Wolf army currently, but has played several others over the years. Along with his fellow student, Jack, he runs a blog at dissentingdice.blogspot.com, and will be attending WARGames Con in the team tournament, and also Wasteland Wars up in Lubbock.

Goatboy - Back with the Lists - CSM Superfriends!

View Comments


We've got an GT coming up next month that is as close to local as we can get (San Antonio - Alamo 40k GT May 14th-15th) and BigRed is going to make it there for some games. I know amazing that he is going to play more then one game a week on a video. He wants to play CSM so I figured an easiest list with some of the more bad ass characters from the book is perfect for him. So without further ado - it is The Don and Friends of Doom who Want to Kick Butt all Over Your Face - Pt 2!!!

Review: FoW: UH-1d "Slick"

View Comments
Frost here again, this time to tell you about one of the new model kits in Battlefront's latest foray into the Vietnam War. The UH-1D “Slick” was the primary means by which air cavalry units got into and out of battle, as well as receiving light supplies and reinforcements. Bigred handed me a kit for one the other day, so I took a crack at it.
