40K: Whither Dark Angels?

Guest Columnist 4 Minute Read January 23

After the Dark Angels battle report we posted I was amused by many of the comments regarding my decision to stick with the Dark Angels and thought I should at least explain my thoughts. So it really begs the question why in the world would anyone play a 4th edition codex? The answer is easy. […]

40K: Grey Knight Storm Raven Sighted


Look what the back of the Storm Raven box looks like.  More after the jump. So that pretty much settles the Grey Knight question.  There is also talk that the other Marine codices won’t be gaining access to the craft. ~I’m surprised at the reported decision to not allow a new fancy $66 model exposure […]

40K EDITORIAL: Hive Tyrant – Worth It?

Mark Mercer 4 Minute Read January 22

I’ve been thinking lately are Hive Tyrants actually worth it? Mercer here from I.D, I’m going to take a look more in depth. They’re one of the two monstrous creatures as HQ choices (ok you’ve got Swarmlord but still a Tyrant) and it’s the most expensive (except Swarmlord). Profile isn’t too bad the the upgrades […]
