Tactica Space Marines - Heavy Support Part Three

Hey there everyone, my name is Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the toys everyone wants, the Space Marine Heavy Support units! Space Marines have an unparalleled selection of diverse units in the Heavy Support slot, giving them far more options in the simple game of shooting than any other codex out there. I hope you enjoy this article!

Work in Progress

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here for a quick update! I had a break over Christmas to enjoy some quality time with my family, hence the lack of blogging. However, progress has resumed and the next Space Marine article should be up tomorrow night. Even with that delay in work, the Space Marine Tactica series should be completely finished before Tyranids are released. And if it isn't, I'll make sure to continue work on it even as I review the new book. Thanks for the support guys!

25 Dec 2013

Merry Christmas!

From the team here at Imperator Guides, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a day of compassion and joy! Have a lovely day!

We wish you a Merry Nidmas,
We wish you a Merry Nidmas,
We wish you a Merry Nidmas,
And a happy 'Nid year!

Tyranid "Apex Biomorphs" Thoughts

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with another look (not literally though!) at the new Tyranids and some of the rules leaks we are seeing. This time, I'm going to be looking at a rumour set that was sent into Naftka over on Faeit 212 (check it out, he's an awesome blogger!) and has spread around the Internet, including on +Bell of Lost Souls. Without further ado, here are my thoughts on the "Apex Biomorphs" - and by the by, I hope that is indeed what they are referred to as in the new codex!

Tyranid Rules Compilation and Thoughts

Howdy everyone, my name is Learn2Eel and today I have a different kind of article for you. Tyranids are my favourite Warhammer 40000 army, and as we all know by now, they are about to receive a massive update with several new kits, including a few updates to older ones. However, what many are interested in most of all are how the codex itself shapes up in-game; will this be the defining Tyranid codex to wipe away the sins of the 5th Edition incarnation? We can only hope that it gives us more reason to include numerous diverse army lists, and the early rules leaks have left me hopeful.

Updating the Portals

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick update! Tonight, after posting that new Space Marine Tactica article, I resolved to fix up our 'Hobby Portal' and, most important of all, the 'Tactics Portal' so that all those articles I've put up lately - including the ever numerous Space Marine ones - can be found with but two clicks! This will make viewing the extensive Space Marine series far easier, and it will also allow me to more effectively do those 'Revisited' articles I kicked off earlier this year when I had a second look at Wraith armies following the new Eldar codex. I hope this makes browsing my Tacticas a far easier endeavour for you, and I will make sure to list any future articles either in the 'Hobby Portal' or 'Tactics Portal' for future viewing! And as a little bonus, I'm going to be going over the confirmed rules for Tyranids from the White Dwarf and analyzing just what they mean. Thanks again! Have a great day! Eel out.

Tyranid Pictures on BoLS!

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a special update; the new Tyranid models have been leaked, and oh my, THEY ARE SO AMAZING! This is in my opinion, even just from crappy low-resolution photos, the *best* release of 6th Edition so far. Fantastic, absolutely fantastic! You can see the new models for yourself over on +Bell of Lost Souls in this thread, pages 52 to 55! Enjoy! In the mean-time, below are my thoughts on the new models!

Tactica Space Marines - Fast Attack Part Two

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel, and I am here today with a look at the Fast Attack slot for Codex: Space Marines! The loyal progeny of the Emperor have always been masters of all aspects of warfare, and when the big guns and over-powering strikes aren't enough, they can rely on mobility and precise counter-strikes to cripple and destroy the important cogs of any enemy war machine. I hope you find this to be an interesting, or at least helpful, read!

All is Well

Learn2Eel here with a very quick update to let you guys know that all is still well in the world of Imperator Guides, well, that is if you don't count putting up new content. It's just been a busy week and that is really all that is going on. I'm not sick or anything like that, so there ain't nothing stopping this train! The next Space Marine articles won't take long at all once I get around to them, and really, there's only about six or seven left for me to do anyway. The Vampire and Necron stuff might get a pass depending on what is released in January, but we can wait and see on that one. As it stands, those new data-slate and battle-scroll mini rules updates GW are doing are awesome, in my opinion. I won't be covering any of them as they cost around $10 each or something along those lines down under, so I will give them a miss for now what with money being tight around Christmas. However, from what I read about the first one - Be'lakor - the fact that he can be used by a total of four armies from both 40K and Fantasy, and what I've read of his 40K rules, is pretty darn cool.

I can't wait to see where Games Workshop go with these mini updates in the future, and having these inserts "back" from the old Chapter Approved days will be a great way to add rules for models without a codex or army book entry! Some prime examples of these are Imrik for High Elves, Nagash for Tomb Kings/Vampire Counts, and hey, maybe even a unique Keeper of Secrets! And did someone mention (drum roll) the Red Terror? *Gasp!* It is an exciting year of hobby ahead, and I really look forward to what is coming out. Just a quick heads up for all of you amazing fans, and I hope you enjoy the Christmas spirit! Also, I know it is a bit late, but Happy Thanksgiving for our North American fans!

Sigvald's Triumph

Learn2Eel here with a shorter than expected update on Sigvald's progress under the command of Mr Jax. The birthday boy only got one game in with his new army today - though many more are sure to follow - and it came against my nasty Vampire Counts. The odds were stacked in Countess Bathery's favour, her numerous Undead legionnaires and thrall monsters proving to be quite the challenge for Sigvald's small, yet elite, force.

However, disaster struck for the Vampire Countess; her escort of Black Knights were charged and crushed from both sides, leaving her to depart the field after receiving a light cut from Sigvald himself! Sigvald could not bear to see such a beautiful creature stricken and rent, and so the Magnificent Prince merely sliced at her arm, watching in apparent admiration at the black, lifeless blood that spilled forth. Enraged and embarrassed that her legions had failed her, and at the first sight of her own blood in centuries, Countess Bathery fled the field with Sigvald's corrupted warriors frozen by inaction. For indeed, Sigvald had commanded that this gem of the Southern Lands could not be spoiled further, and would cherish the deathly taint that she had left behind. For the ancient Countess of the Lahmian bloodline, her revenge was a plan already in formulation, even as her deathless warriors faded to dust and ash......

MAJOR VICTORY - SIGVALD'S CARNIVAL OF ABERRATIONS



27 Nov 2013

Birthday Wishes - Mr Jax!

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick and out of the ordinary little post about one of my favourite guys in the whole wide world, our very own Mr Jax. He's been doing some epic painting, basing and conversion for my Eldar, Tyranid and Crimson Fist armies, but over the past few days - as part of his birthday present from everyone - he's been getting to hard work on his own army; Warriors of Chaos! That's right, as of today, Mr Jax has a sweet new 2000 point army of Warriors of Chaos, and he's really eager to put them through their paces tomorrow. His first opponent is going to be me with my deadly Vampire Counts, led by Countess Bathery of the Lahmian Vampires! But I have an inkling that Sigvald's Carnival of Aberrations are going to prove who the greatest temptresses of all are - Slaanesh, or the blood-line of Neferata! In any case, I wish Mr Jax all the best for a great day, and you can leave your own birthday wishes for him here! I'll be certain to post an update on how the day went for Mr Jax's Sigvald-themed Slaanesh army tomorrow night, so stay tuned for some epic battle reports!

And don't take this to mean Space Marines are getting the could shoulder, by the way! I'm going to see if I can get the first Fast Attack article up in the next few days, now that I know I don't have to "rush" to meet a certain "dead-line" *wink* *wink*. With all that said, I hope you have yourselves a great day and expect to hear from me soon!

Fortunes Change - 40K Fast Attack

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and today I am here to kick off a new series of articles discussing units or tactics that have received some hefty reversals in fortune either as a result of 6th Edition or of their new codex. I hope you enjoy this article, and I look forward to seeing your reception of this series-to-be!

24 Nov 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Elites Part Two

Hey there everybody, I am Learn2Eel and today I have some more awesome Space Marines to discuss! The Space Marine Elites are some of the finest warriors in the galaxy, and fighting both with or against them is always an interesting experience. I hope you enjoy this article!

20 Nov 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Elites Part One

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and I am excited to bring you the latest segment of my Space Marines Tactica series! When the battle turns against the forces of a Chapter, they press their most seasoned veterans into the conflict; warriors with few peers among the dozens of factions in the galaxy. I hope you enjoy this article!


17 Nov 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Dedicated Transports

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I'm going to be bringing you some slick rolling tactics. Space Marines have a satisfyingly large number of dedicated transports for use with a wide range of units, giving them a lot of deployment flexibility and options for mobility compared to most other armies. All but one of these can be taken across most of the force organization chart, allowing you to build entire forces of one or more variants of transport. They are universally cheap and great value for delivering your mostly medium-ranged infantry straight into the thick of battle. I hope you find this an entertaining article!

15 Nov 2013

Vampire Counts - Resurrection Unit Analysis

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a continuation of my newly resurrected (ha!) Vampire Counts Tactica series! Today, I'm going to be focusing on arguably the most important aspect of an Undead army in Warhammer Fantasy; raising your fallen warriors back into the chilly grip of undeath. I hope you find this an enjoyable article!

13 Nov 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Scouts

Hey there everyone, I'm Learn2Eel and today I'm continuing my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! This time, I'm going to be focusing on the Troops choices, and best of all, I don't need to split the article up into two or more pieces! These stalwart warriors of the Astartes form the back-bone of all Chapters, giving you a good core of elite units that are amazingly flexible in their design and applications. I hope you enjoy this article!

Forge World Badab War Character Impressions - Part Two

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and I am one happy (war)gamer! Today, in continuation from my first Badab War Character Impressions article, I would like to discuss the other recently updated Badab War characters. There have been so many characters updated in the FAQ, which is why there was a delay on this article - not to mention some lingering issues! Suffice it to say, as a gamer that loves all things Warhammer 40000 and adores testing out combos from every army, this really is an awesome - and free! - update that will surely lead to an influx of these characters used in both competitive and non-competitive games. With that said, I hope you enjoy this article!


6 Nov 2013

Sorry Guys!

I really need to learn not to make promises! There's so much going on at the moment that I've found it difficult to do any writing at all. I just can't justify putting out "rushed articles" just to make up the numbers; it has to be at an acceptable standard or I won't publish it. With that in mind, I'll stop with the guarantees. I don't like saying it, but I guess it is very much a case of me needing to take my time. I'm sorry about all that, as I know it is hardly optimal, but I have some major issues writing these articles when I'm under pressure elsewhere. This is just to both let you guys know that all is well and good, and that I'm sorry. The Badab War article *should* be up in the next few days, with a Space Marine Scouts article to follow shortly after. Again, sorry if this is in any way an inconvenience to you wonderful, awesome fans! Thanks again, and sorry again! I'll just stop writing now, because otherwise I'll keep going in an endless circle of "thanks, sorry"!

Forge World Badab War Characters Impressions - Part One

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and I am one happy (war)gamer! Today, in continuation from my Forge World Chapter Tactics article, I would like to discuss the recently updated Badab War characters. There have been so many characters updated in the FAQ, which is why there was a delay on this article and not the Chapter Tactics article. Suffice it to say, as a gamer that loves all things Warhammer 40000 and adores testing out combos from every army, this really is an awesome - and free! - update that will surely lead to an influx of these characters used in both competitive and non-competitive games. With that said, I hope you enjoy this article! I should have the Scout Squad Tactica up within three or four days. Progress is slow on all fronts at the moment due to lingering health issues. Hopefully it won't be long before you start seeing an article every two days from us again!

Tactica Space Marines - Tactical Squads

Hey there everyone, I'm Learn2Eel and today I'm continuing my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! This time, I'm going to be focusing on the Troops choices. These stalwart warriors of the Astartes form the back-bone of all Chapters, giving you a good core of elite units that are amazingly flexible in their design and applications. I hope you enjoy this article!

27 Oct 2013

Forge World Chapter Tactics Impressions

Howdy there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I'm here to talk some more about the awesome Space Marines! Between the recent Space Marines codex and an edition shift, Forge World has had to release a lot of updates to their existing material so that they can function within the context of 6th Edition Warhammer 40000. The most recent of these was the release of not only a Space Marine Characters FAQ, but a Chapter Tactics FAQ - and the latter of which is what I will be focusing on today. I hope you enjoy this article!
Just a bit of a heads up, I've been "hard at work" at my local gaming store, and I'm going all out on the Troops article for Space Marines. One form of it or another should be up two days from now at the absolute latest.

21 Oct 2013

Even in Death do we Serve

Hiya guys, Learn2Eel here with a very quick look at one of our most recently completed models, assembled by me and painted by the talented Mr Jax. This is, of course, the titanic Eldar Wraithknight, one of three that are to be part of my Ulthwe Wraith-themed army list. To add to this completed Wraithknight, Mr Jax has so far completely finished 5 Wraithguard and 1 Wraithlord - he has another 5 Wraithguard, another 1 Wraithlord, another 2 Wraithknights, 2 Spiritseers and 2 Wave Serpents to finish! All credit to this amazing guy who never fails to impress me! I hope you enjoy these photos! I'll try and get a hobby article up in the next few days with detailed descriptions of how Mr Jax painted this fine model.


"Broken"and its Chronic Misuse

Howdy all, Learn2Eel here with some thoughts on the term 'broken' and its application in Warhammer 40000. I've been simmering on these thoughts for several months, particularly in light of the many meta shifts since the introduction of 6th Edition. I hope you enjoy this article!

Tactica Space Marines - Unique Characters Part Four

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and this is my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! Today, I will be looking at a handful of the greatest heroes amongst the Adeptus Astartes; warriors and leaders that have scribed their names into legend through valour and skill. I hope you enjoy this article!


13 Oct 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Unique Characters Part Three

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and this is my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! Today, I will be looking at a handful of the greatest heroes amongst the Adeptus Astartes; warriors and leaders that have scribed their names into legend through valour and skill. I hope you enjoy this article!


10 Oct 2013

Dark Elves - Initial Impressions

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick look at the "new" kids off the block; the Dark Elves of Naggaroth. I have been anticipating this release for a while due in no small part to the earlier High Elf update, and it is really intriguing to see just how the two forces compare. I hope you enjoy this article!


5 Oct 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Unique Characters Part Two

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and this is my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! Today, I will be looking at a handful of the greatest heroes amongst the Adeptus Astartes; warriors and leaders that have scribed their names into legend through valour and skill. I hope you enjoy this article!

Updates on Works in Progress

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick update on how everything is progressing! This week has been a busy week for me and my family, and with the Dark Elf release, I've had little time to really focus on my ongoing Tacticas. Rest assured, progress is being made, but as I spoke of earlier, it will be slow due to me still struggling with lingering issues after my extended period in medical centres. I'm also trying to move the Vampire Counts and Necron Tacticas over to the new format shown in my Space Marine articles so that if I am having a bit of writers block on one, I can simply move to the other one, but this time I won't force myself. The Heresy articles are coming, but I may wait until after I have completed those three reviews; Betrayal is so extensive and varied in its units and options that it really requires my full attention! Hopefully, there will be a Space Marine article tonight, followed by a subsequent article on either of the three ongoing armies within three days after that. I'm trying to get a more regular and structured time frame to these articles going. I'll let you know how it goes, and thanks again for all the support!

Just thought I would throw in an update to the update, I may actually forsake the Necron and Vampire Counts Tacticas in favour of the Horus Heresy Betrayal (and possibly Massacre) lists....any feedback here would be greatly appreciated!

30 Sep 2013

Predicted Tyranid Changes

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here and today I want to discuss the looming threat of a Tyranid release; rapidly closing in like the great maw itself, the rumours really are hotting up nowadays! Every source is pointing to a January release, and you will be hard pressed to find a gamer - not a fan - as excited about them as I am.

29 Sep 2013

Games Day UK Primarch Reveals!

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a really quick (and unfortunately, picture-less) update; the next two Primarchs after Ferrus Manus from Forge World have been revealed! Lorgar is set to be released in December or January! And, wait for it, the biggest news yet.....Horus is after Lorgar! WOW! Have a look over on +Bell of Lost Souls in the Gamesday thread for more exciting news. A big shout out to all the people attending GDUK and sending us this awesome stuff!

21 Sep 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Generic Characters Part Two

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and this is my Codex: Space Marines Tactica! Today, I will be looking at the lesser known but certainly no less zealous or worthy heroes of the Space Marines; the commanders, purifiers and psykers that lead the many thousands of Chapters into glorious conflict. I hope you enjoy this article!

Tactica Space Marines - Generic Characters Part One

I hope you enjoy this article!

Taking my Time

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and I thought I would just give you all a quick update that all is well and progress is being maintained on the Space Marines Tactica series. However, I will freely admit that not only am I not that understanding of the nuances of Space Marines, and have yet to playtest them very much, but I am also going to really think all of my articles out on each of these units. I have been guilty in the past of inaccurate reviews due to not having enough playtesting, and I want to make sure that for such a big release - and hopefully this will carry on through each new release, just with less time between articles - that I get everything as spot on as I can. Sorry for the lack of updates! I hope to have an article out in the next two days at the very least; remember, I am still struggling a bit with getting back into my home environment after that horrid month in hospital. Wishing you all well, and hoping this isn't too much of an inconvenience; have a good one!

9 Sep 2013

Tactica Space Marines - Initial Overview

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with the first in what will be a very long series of Tactica articles concerning the most iconic and popular of all the unique factions and species in the universe of Warhammer 40,000 - the mighty Adeptus Astartes! I hope you enjoy this article, and I would also like to say that I am striving to make this simply the best Tactica series that I have done as yet! Enjoy!


30 Aug 2013

Hey everyone, I'm back!

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a general update on why the website has been unusually quiet over the past month, particularly in light of the three Tactica series I was working on, as well as the impending Space Marine release.


27 Jul 2013

Apocalypse, Art and Heresy - Just another Day

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I'm excited to bring you a trio of reports, and some lovely pictures to boot. I had a long day filled with fun, jubilation and even surprise; indeed, the Heresy has arrived. But not just the Heresy it seems, but Apocalypse as well! I hope you find some entertainment out of this article!


25 Jul 2013

The Heresy Has Arrived

Hi guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick update on what is happening in the world of Imperator Guides.


23 Jul 2013

Lizardmen Leaks

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a very quick update on the next Games Workshop release!


Anime Suits - The Crisis Army

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and today I am going to be talking about the new Farsight Enclaves Supplement. The fluff expansion on the Enclaves as well as the titular man himself have been really intriguing, particularly the short paragraph that confirms the Dawn Blade is the sole reason for O'Shovah's extended life. However, what has really caught my attention - and no doubt that of many others - is that the supplement gives us what so many have been yearning for, both for competitive and themed armies; a force composed entirely of battlesuits. With that said, I hope you enjoy this article! And just a quick note, progress has stalled on the Necron and Vampire Counts articles due to an unfortunate set of circumstances, and I am unable to give a solid date as to their scheduled release. My sincerest apologies!

19 Jul 2013

A Quick Update

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick update. There's been a delay on both my Vampire Counts and Necron Tactics, but rest assured that everything will be restored to order very soon. I hope to have an article for both out in the next few days. Sorry for the inconvenience!

15 Jul 2013

Vampire Counts Tactica - Vampiric Powers

Hey everyone, I'm Learn2Eel and today I want to kick off my new Vampire Counts Tactica! They are my new primary Warhammer Fantasy army and through them I am learning a lot about the game, particularly the sheer importance of the movement phase. For those worried about my Necron Tactica, fear not; I have decided to cover both of these armies at once, so as not to be bogged down if I am struggling with a particular series. I hope you enjoy this article and the series as a whole!

14 Jul 2013

Vampire Counts Tactica - Army Special Rules and Magic

Hey everyone, I'm Learn2Eel and today I want to continue on with my Vampire Counts Tactica! They are my new primary Warhammer Fantasy army and through them I am learning a lot about the game, particularly the sheer importance of the movement phase. For those worried about my Necron Tactica, fear not; I have decided to cover both of these armies at once, so as not to be bogged down if I am struggling with a particular series. I hope you enjoy this article!


13 Jul 2013

Apocalypse - Live QnA Now!

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a special look at Apocalypse; we have the book here and now, and we are ready to answer any question you may still have about the book! Mr Jax and I picked up the Gamer's Edition this morning, and you can look forward to our reviews and impressions of both the Vortex Case and Apocalypse rulebook over the coming nights. For now though, I hope you enjoy this Questions and Answers article!


11 Jul 2013

An Unfortunate Delay

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick update on the Necron Tactica. I've had to unfortunately delay it for a while as there have been some personal issues to deal with lately. I hope to get the first article up within the next two days, but I can't promise a set time. Sorry for the inconvenience!

9 Jul 2013

Apocalypse - A Preview

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel, and today I want to quickly touch on the impending Apocalypse release with a bit of a contrast of opinions. I feel that this is going to be a great release and I really hope Games Workshop move heaven and earth to support this rules supplement. I hope you enjoy this short article!


7 Jul 2013

Necrons Tactica - Army Special Rules

Hey guys, its Learn2Eel here with the Necrons Tactica, updated with 6th Edition in mind! Obviously, the soulless machines have undergone a host of changes that have made them one of the strongest, most balanced armies in 6th Edition Warhammer 40000. If you are interested in how to use each of their units, or are looking for some weaknesses to exploit, I am confident that this Tactica will be a nice, comprehensive guide to the Necrons, their many special rules and units. I hope you enjoy this series!


5 Jul 2013

Vampire Counts Army List Fun

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here and today I want to talk about my new Vampire army (bleh!) and provide my thoughts on an army list I have been cooking up. For those wondering, I will be going ahead with the Necron Tactica first up, but I am still working on getting those articles up to an acceptable level. With that in mind, I hope you enjoy this article!

Eldar Tactica - Codex Summary

Hey all, I'm Learn2Eel and today I want to give my final impressions on the new Eldar codex. I hope you find it an entertaining and insightful read!

29 Jun 2013

Eldar Tactica - Heavy Support Part II

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar! Few amongst the galactic civilisations can truly say their technology is a match for the Craftworlders, with the sheer devastation they are capable of rivaling that even of the dreaded Imperium. When the Eldar turn to their ancient weapons of war, they do so assuredly; the firepower they can bring to an engagement from the Heavy Support slot is truly magnificent. Each of the units on offer specialises in their own form of destruction, guided by Aspect or deathly whispers alike; there is a lot of competition here, and that is only to your benefit. I hope you enjoy this article!

28 Jun 2013

A Quick Update - Eldar Tactica

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here with a quick note about my Eldar Tactica series. I regret to inform you that I may not be able to complete the article for today/tonight (depending on your time zone) as I have spent much of the day preparing for the oncoming doubles tournament in my local area. Rest assured that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, the Heavy Support Part II article will be posted within the next twenty four hours. Sorry for the inconvenience!

27 Jun 2013

Vampire Counts - A New Army!

Hey guys, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to tell you about some awesome new models my best buddy JT gifted me! There is love in the air, with the Lahmian Vampires laughing at the pitifully weak minds of mortal souls; some awesome conversions from our helpful LGS manager have really given character to a force that I am trying to familiarize with. I hope you enjoy this article!


24 Jun 2013

Eldar Tactica - Heavy Support Part I

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar!

Eldar Tactica - Air Fast Attack

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar! No recorded species can match the grace and fluidity of the Eldar, and nowhere is this more apparent than in their Fast Attack choices; warriors all, complete with a new Aspect to vie for your attention. Though of debatable use before, the returning cast are very much a far more appealing selection; geared towards dealing with specific threats, the mobility at hand here is simply unmatched in any codex. I hope you enjoy this article!

Eldar Tactica - Ground Fast Attack

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar! No recorded species can match the grace and fluidity of the Eldar, and nowhere is this more apparent than in their Fast Attack choices; warriors all, complete with a new Aspect to vie for your attention.

FISTING

   Hey guys, JT here getting all worked up over my favorite activity - FISTING with my Imperial FISTS; as some of you may know I have a bit of a passion for the Imperial Fists SM chapter - their combination of heavy siege weaponry, stubbornness and outright insanity clinched it for me when choosing a loyalist chapter many eons ago; that and the challenge of painting an entire army of little yellow bastards.

   So I stand upon the precipice, working on my Tau whilst staring longingly at the SM Codex trying to cook up a list for the venerable fists of the Emperor, as well as dreaming of all the pretty conversions I can perform - and seeing as L2E has popped up with the idea of Salamanders, I thought I'd share with you guys my thoughts and idea's for the fists, as well as my theory behind building solid lists.

Salamanders - Sons of Nocturne

Hey guys, Learn2Eel here and I must say that I am one happy gamer right now, what with the Eldar and Tau leaving some strong impressions everywhere. Today, I wanted to look at a chapter bedecked in history, comprised of valiant and compassionate - almost to a fault - warriors that have fought since the eve of the Horus Heresy. I speak of course of the Salamanders, a noble chapter that will never cease their defence of the innocent and weak; heroes that will reluctantly take arms even against other Astartes to preserve those who cannot save themselves. I hope you enjoy this article!

Eldar Tactica - Elites

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar! For an army that defines the term, elites are even more of a specialty choice in an army comprised of units designed to perform specific roles almost exclusively. Each of them is based around close range firefights or assaults, but they are typically more durable than your average Eldar forces to compensate. I hope you enjoy this article!

An Update - Learn2Eel

Hey all, just a quick note from our resident eel; I have come down with a virus and I find it really affects my capability to author the Tacticas. With that in mind, my Eldar Elites article will be at least a day late. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Eldar Tactica - Troops

Hey there everyone, I am Learn2Eel and today I want to talk about the new and improved Eldar! The citizens of the Craftworld, as well as that most famous of Aspects, comprise the bulk of the Eldar force; fittingly, the elite nature of the army is conveyed no better that even the most basic soldier has a stat line fitting of a Space Marine. The potential addition of Wraith constructs as the core troopers of the army adds both a lot of flexibility and versatility to army list design, something that can be somewhat lacking in the other 6th Edition codices.

GW vs CHS - A Thorny Topic

   Hey guys, JT here with some commentary on one of the most divisive topics facing our community today; I am talking about the on - going legal battle between Games Workshop and Chapter House Studios, and why this legal battle is kindling such heated debates across the internet; as well as considering the implications of the testimony given by Games Workshop representatives and how the future looks for everyone who works within the industry, whether it be after - market parts manufacturers to blog's, websites, forums and anyone who produces supplementary material for GW products in any capacity.
