Haemonculus Covens Supplement Review

Friday, November 14, 2014

Let's take a look at the first Dark Eldar supplement, the Haemonculus Covens, and what they bring to the tabletop from the underbelly of Commorragh.

Dark Eldar 7th Edition Codex Review

Monday, October 27, 2014

The dust has settled a bit since the new Dark Eldar codex was released just a few weeks ago. There have been many reviews, impressions, tacticas, and battle reports recently featuring the new dark kin and it's interesting to see how people's views of the army have shifted from the initial shock when the book first dropped. I've seen the full gamut of reactions, some dismissing the army outright as being terrible and unable to play on its own as a primary force, to some labeling the book "the best Codex: Eldar supplement to date", and then those who are rejoicing that the Internet has largely skimmed over the parts that make the new Dark Eldar a competitive force to be reckoned with. Opinions will surely evolve over time as more and more combinations are play tested (there are a bunch to try out) and as the army faces the gauntlet of a major GT or 2. Here are some of my thoughts on the latest 7th edition army update.

Devil in the Details

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Tonight I wanted to mention a few interesting things I've found in the new Dark Eldar codex, some of which I haven't seen much, if any, discussion about.

Look on the bright side...

Friday, October 3, 2014

There's always Eldar allies! I'm kidding of course, as I truly think we all need to take a little time with the actual book, with the full context of the rules, and dare I say play some actual games with the new Dark Eldar before we rage-quit and sell our armies.

Fun With Flayed Ones

Thursday, September 18, 2014

I've recently turned my attention to Necrons until the new DE codex drops. The Necrons will have a new book of their own before too long, although their current rules have fared quite well in 7th edition thus far.

Dark Eldar Wishlisting

Friday, September 5, 2014

Rumors of the new Dark Eldar are ramping up and I for one can't wait to see what's in store for their release! At this point, there isn't a whole lot of consistency across the rumors I've seen and most seem like educated guesses based on the treatment of Grey Knights and other recent codex updates. Here are some of my un-educated guesses and hopes for the new book.

1850 RTT Recap

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Outside of a few home games, I hadn't yet tested any of my lists in a true 7th edition tournament setting. Then the opportunity came up to play in Huzzah Hobbies' monthly 40k RTT a couple weeks back. It was my first time visiting this store so I was excited to check it out and get my first larger point games of 7th under my belt.

Wraithknight WIP

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I finally got around to building my wraithknight, a much needed tough unit to ally with my other armies.

Reinforcements Arrive!

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

From now on the 4th of July will take on a whole new celebration for my family as this was the day my daughter, Eleanor, decided to join us in the world :)

Dark Eldar in 7th Edition

Friday, June 20, 2014

Having spent more time with the 7th edition rules and after some practice games, it's time to evaluate how my armies are transitioning to the new edition. Starting with Dark Eldar.

7th Edition Webway Portals?

7th edition first round FAQs are up and there are some interesting changes (omissions)...

7th Edition - Initial Thoughts

Friday, May 23, 2014

I picked up the new rulebook, psychic cards, and tactical objectives from the FLGS when they went on sale today at 1pm (midnight in Nottingham). Here's my initial thoughts after a first pass through the rules.

End of an Era

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Again we find ourselves at the dawn of a new edition although I don't think anybody expected it to come this quickly.

Unpacking & Unboxing

Monday, April 28, 2014

Whew, what a month! No more trips to the apartment after work anymore, we're officially all moved in. Now I can just focus on getting the house set up (and keeping up with yard work, and putting in a garden, and...) but seriously, after being cramped in a tiny apartment for the past few years I don't mind having to do that kind of work at all. As things settle in I'll have more time to get back into my unfinished projects and start a couple new ones, like this Imperial Knight:

Across the Webway

Monday, March 17, 2014

Here are some interesting reads I stumbled upon this past week from the vast expanse of hobby blogs across the Internet.

Site Update

Friday, March 7, 2014

I finally got around to addressing some site template issues -- namely the image resizing bug where all new posts with pictures would only display in original sizes which only added to the lack of mobile friendly browsing. Rather than figure out what had suddenly plagued my previous template, I decided it was time to change things up and go with something new.

Packing Up

Monday, March 3, 2014

It's moving time again, but this will hopefully be the last time for a very long time. We're less than 2 weeks away from closing on our first house! This is a very exciting but busy time. I'm at the point where I need to pack away my armies and hobby gear for the foreseeable future and put all my projects on hold. Before I do, I figured I would take a quick shot of each so I know exactly where to pick up after the new man-cave is set up. Here's what I've been working on.

Drazhar Update

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Life has been extra busy so far this year but has also been extra awesome. Between work, class, and buying a house, I haven't been able to get any gaming in yet, but there has been some progress on a few hobby projects. Drazhar has undergone some minor updates and is almost ready for some liquid green stuff. First, I moved him over to a proper round base, borrowing from the new Farseer blister.
