Astra Militarum Tactics: Layered Fires

With Astra Militarum, we have some of the best firepower around, if not the best.  However it is important to use it correctly and both build your army to properly take advantage of it, and to deploy it so it can make use of it.  With some of the longest ranged weapons in the game, and some of the weakest units in melee, it is important to layer your fires so that you can weaken your opponent, or attrit in military terms, before they reach your lines.

Astra Militarum Tactics: Fighting Necrons

This is going to be an initial overview of how to deal with necrons.  Not going to be in depth as I haven't played against the new army yet nor poured over the codex for a long while.  But there are definite things you are going to face and need to deal with as IG

Harlequins Are Looking Good

The new harlequin release is looking great so far.  The codex will be out soon and should get a good final verdict but from what I have seen they are going to be a good force, though not going to be top of the meta either.  Thinking along the lines of MT but a little bit better.  AT is a bit of an issue but I think they can handle them.  They have a lot of good tools though, and the shadow seer is definitely going to be a big presence, and I think the death jester is going to have an impact as well.

Just too Early: Astra Militarum & Scions

With 7th edition being out for quite a while now, and with a lot of codex's coming since then, I have to say I look at my scion and astra militarum codex's and feel a little sad.  To me, the books were great for 6th edition, and the scion codex (format wise) was a sign of things to come.  But I see all the new codexes with their special detachments and formations and I feel a little left out.

Guest Hobby: Converted Imperial Guard and Scions

Second set of army pics sent in to me while I was away.  Luke did some great conversion work on all of his stuff and I must say I am jealous of how you paint eyes so well, something I still struggle with.  Above is one of his scion commanders, looking very nice.  More below

Guest Hobby: 2000pts of Scions

A few weeks ago I got sent pics of what 2000pts of scions.  James sent the pics of his army that he has and its awesome to see plenty of scions.  For anyone else that would like their IG or Scion army to be showcased, or anything that is just plain awesome, please feel free to shoot the info and pics over to me in an email.

Back From the Land of no Internets

Well I am back, finally.  Been a long three weeks.  I have just been able to keep up with some of the current 40k events and have to say, the harlies look amazing.  Looking forward to seeing the full codex come out, as of now looks like they will be good, but prob not great on their own, like Militarum Tempestus.  Anyways, more to follow, have quite a few things I want to post, I'll be on later so expect to see more posting and back to my regular schedule.

Away For Work

Just FYI, I am away on military training, with limited internet access.  I won't be back for two weeks so don't expect a whole lot of posting till then.  Please send emails if you have any thing to share.  I'll be posting 2K pts of Scions that were sent in to me when I can.  I have been keeping my ear to the ground, with what little internet I have, and the Harlies look amazing, can't wait to see more when I get back.  Good luck to all, see you on the flip side.
