Orks Tactica - Deff Dread

Greetings fellow Ork players (or rivals) and welcome to the latest entry in my Ork Tactica series! I'm covering the venerable (no pun intended) Deff Dreads today, some of the cheapest walkers in the game that are surprisingly deadly in the art of assault as befits their place in the greenskin hordes. I hope you enjoy this article!

Genestealer Cult Leaked Rules Preview

Good day (or night) to you and welcome to my very first preview of the (spoiler alert - if you do not presently know of the leaked rules and don't want to be spoiled, stop reading) re-imagined Genestealer Cult rules! Before we begin, I would like to point out that this is not a proper review and should not be taken as such; it is an assessment of the information given to us from the two leaked images displaying part of the Patriarch profile and the entirety of the Acolyte Hybrids profile. We do not know a lot of details such as the minimum requirements to field a Genestealer Cult detachment, the price point of the Patriarch or other HQ choice (if any exist) for the faction, whether the Favored Disciples are a unique unit and so on. In any case, I hope you enjoy the article!

Tactica Space Marines - Marneus Calgar

Greetings all and welcome to the final entry in my Space Marine Tactica series and, by the Emperor, I'll be damned if I have to write more about Warhammer 40,000-era Space Marines in the near future (don't tell him about the Dark Angels, ahem). It'll be nice to clear my head with some interesting xenos and...mechanical...codices, but for now all I can really say is that, character-wise, I feel I have saved the best for last. I've yet to review Marneus Calgar in any capacity for the current codex and I'm truly glad I had a chance to formulate a proper article as I believe that the Paragon of Ultramar is befitting of his title as the God of War. I hope you enjoy the article!

Tactica Space Marines - Chaplain Grimaldus

Greetings fellow hobbyists and wargamers, I welcome you to the second last addition to my Space Marine Tactica series and hope that you are having a lovely day bringing righteous vengeance to the sworn enemies of the Emperor! As you may have guessed by the introductory sentence (or the title, but don't mention it to the guy who wrote this, he's daft) this will be the review of none other than Merek Grimaldus, one of the most honored and respected warriors among the Black Templars. I hope you enjoy this article!

Tactica Space Marines - The Emperors' Champion

Hello there everyone and welcome to the third last entry in my seemingly never-ending Space Marine Tactica series, this time covering the glorious warrior that is the Emperors' Champion. There are few Space Marines more skilled in the art of the duel than this particular character and I'm glad that he offers Black Templar players a budget beat-stick and alternative to the other special characters. I hope you enjoy the article!


You've probably noticed that it has been rather dry around these parts for a while as I explained a few months back, and that's about to change for a short time at least. A huge part of why it is taking me so long to get through the Space Marine and Ork reviews is my antipathy towards them; they've been dragging on so long that I get tired and bored just thinking about them. I want to get on with other reviews and find a format that's right for me so that I can get up to date for the first time in well over a year and provide you with articles centered around updated or new armies in their respective release weeks. Seems a tall order given the current situation, no? Well, here's the rub. I'm done with Space Marines and I'm going to be giving Dark Angels the cold shoulder until every other current codex as of the time of writing has been covered, if only because I've had to review the same large selection of units repeatedly since 7th Edition debuted back in mid 2014. Don't worry fans of the 1st Legion, you'll get your due well before this year is out. That brings me back to my main point and why I'm creating this little stub update....I've already posted up the Helbrecht review for the Space Marine series, but that's not all for tonight. No sir. No ma'am. It took a great deal of impromptu effort but the Space Marine Tactica series is officially complete! Have fun!

Tactica Space Marines - High Marshall Helbrecht

To the Emperor, reverence. To the Imperium, glory. To the Black Templars, fear. Perhaps the most terrifying of all the Adeptus Astartes are the Black Templars, a Chapter only in name that is beyond the creed of mere humans and answers only to their own pious blood-lust. Matching even the infamous World Eaters for sheer ferocity and tempered by an unparalleled dedication to the God Emperor, the Black Templars are a leviathan beast tamed and directed by their greatest leader, the High Marshall himself; Helbrecht. I hope you enjoy this review of the legendary crusader!

I hope you enjoy this article!

Updates to Existing Legion Reviews

Hey guys, this is just a quick update regarding my Horus Heresy Legion Reviews and the new updates being released for each Legion in the updated Crusade Army List books. Basically, certain elements of my Iron Warriors and Imperial Fists reviews will be made redundant once the new rules release and will have to be further updated to reflect the probable inclusion of new options such as the Iron Circle. I'll make sure to do those updates when possible but in the mean-time there are still lots of other codex reviews to get through so stay tuned!
