KV128 Stormsurge Rules Review and Pre-Codex Impressions

Greetings all and welcome to another early impressions review article for a soon-to-be-released Tau unit; this time I have elected to focus my attention on the KV128 Stormsurge, the latest addition to the Tau roster of Lords of War. While my impressions for the Tau'nar Supremacy Suit were positively glowing because of how absurdly under-priced it is, I will spoil you on the content of my work here by stating in advance that the Stormsurge gets my seal of approval for a completely different reason. I hope you enjoy my thoughts on this awesome new model!

Be aware that this article contains rule spoilers for the upcoming Tau Codex; if you don't want to know about what any of the new units are capable of until you have the codex in-hand, feel free to skip this early impressions review. 

I also must stress that before reading this review you should realize that the opinions expressed in this article are based on a blurry image that may lead to some mistakes with regard to the Stormsurge's actual rules. This is intended to be my early impressions of the Stormsurge prior to its release in the new codex and should not be viewed as a full, final review of the model.

Tactica Space Marines - Chief Librarian Tigurius

I bid you all welcome to my tactical analysis for the venerated Chief Librarian Varro Tigurius of the Ultramarines, a psyker renowned for being one of few to make direct contact with the Tyranid Hive Mind and still retain his sanity. He has been one of the strongest HQ choices available to Space Marine players for two editions running and he forms an integral part of many competitive armies; he is so ridiculously useful overall that many players will actually use the Ultramarines Chapter Tactics purely to unlock Tigurius' exceptional talents. Without further delay, I hope you enjoy this article!

Tactica Space Marines - Generic HQs

Greetings all and welcome to the second overview article in my Space Marine Tactica series, this time focusing on the Generic HQ choices of the codex. Users of the Adeptus Astartes undoubtedly have more characters (generic or unique) to work with than any other army with each choice ranging from solid to fantastic in the right circumstances. I hope you enjoy this article!

The Tau'nar Supremacy Suit - Experimental Rules Review

Hello everyone and welcome to a spontaneous article brought to you by a veteran Tau player. Today I will be focusing on the experimental rules for the Tau'nar - or "Tau Titan" as it has come to be known by the community - and providing my impressions of them. I hope that you find this to be a fair and balanced discussion!

Tactica Space Marines - Captain Sicarius

Hello all and welcome to the first proper tactics entry in my Space Marine review! I'm experimenting with this new review format that covers the general qualities of a unit in the Unit Summary article and then focuses purely on actual capabilities and uses of the unit in the Tactics article. These will run in parallel with the Unit Summaries and hopefully line up fairly well so that the full Tactica series reaches completion in a timely fashion. I look forward to hearing your feedback on this and I also hope you enjoy the article!

Tactica Space Marines - Unique HQs

Greetings all and welcome to my Unique HQ choices article for Space Marines! The Adeptus Astartes have more named characters to choose from than any other faction in the game, and while not all of them are that useful, that most are built to support your army gives them each their own special place in a given force. I hope you enjoy this article!

Tactica Space Marines - General Overview

Greetings all and welcome to the beginning of a new series of Space Marine articles! This particular entry will be on the shorter side but I hope it serves as a prelude to something far greater; the Seven Days of Glory are merely one part of what I have planned for the Adeptus Astartes. I hope you enjoy this quick look and summary of the Space Marine codex!

Orks Tactica - Stormboyz

Hello and welcome to the latest entry in my Ork Tactica series! Stormboyz are one of the more amusing choices in an Ork list, prone to fly off into the air and explode in a shower of green gore just as often as they crash into an unsuspecting foe with tremendous force. While not the most competitive choice and certainly not the ruler of the Orks' Fast Attack slots, Stormboyz are nonetheless a fun and cheap assault unit that exchanges a mandatory Trukk for their natively-equipped Rokkit Packs to accomplish a similar end result. I hope you enjoy this article!
