2nd ed. Eldar Models

Right after the release of the new Eldar Codex, I was gifted, my friend, Mike's old Eldar. When I say old, I mean 2nd edition. These are the miniatures and army he ran back in the later 1990's. I am sure some of the models will look familiar because many of these sculpts have not been updates since then . . . although they have been converted to Finecast. As old as these sculpts are, they have stood the test of time, and what's more, Mike's paint jobs are still beautiful.

Updated Space Marine Apocalypse Formation Rules

I've updated my Space Marines Apocalypse Formations review to include the 3 space wolf formations in the rule book. Why not? This one article covers the lists and special rules for all the vanilla marine formations, some Black Templars, and the Grey Wolves now. You can also find my main Apocalypse article here, too.
As always, thanks for reading. Comments are welcome. Murphy Out!

Space Marine Apocalypse Formations Up!

Finally, the review I wanted to get to: Space Marines Apocalypse Formations. If you are interested in the special rules for these formations, or what models you need to bring to qualify, then click the link below:
I can tell you that bringing a full battle company of marines is just great. They really give the formation a cinematic feel for what space marines are supposed to do. This is something that I've noticed with a lot of the formations in the book: the armies actually playing like the fluff tells us they are capable of, but are often limited by balance rules in the game itself.

Check it out and tune in for more! Murphy Out!

Updated Apocalypse Formations Special Rules

I've gone back and updated my earlier Apocalypse Formations articles. Now that I have the book, I've updated the actual compositions of the Formations and I've now included the special rules that come with each Formation. Check out the articles by clicking on the link below. I still have a few armies left to go, but I will get on that very soon!
If you haven't caught it yet, I've also done a review of the Apocalypse 40k book itself, which also serves as a table of contents to my other, more detailed reviews on different sections like the Mission Special Rules, etc. Check that out here:
As always, thanks for reading! Murphy Out!

WIP Khorne Skull Cannon

In continuing on the expansion of my Chaos Daemon army, I'm working on a custom Khorne Skull Cannon. I had all these extra bits from my Daemon Prince kit, so I built a torso, added some bits from my Heldrake and even an fantasy dwarf organ gun. Instead of a cannon fired by bloodletters, I have a large daemon with a multi-barreled cannon for an arm.

Apocalypse Mission Special Rules - Review

What makes an Apocalypse battle different from a regular game of 40k? Beyond the masses of infantry and the super-heavy vehicles lording over the battlefield, it is the Mission Special Rules that make make the game stand out. I've just finished the first part of a more detailed review of the new Mission Special Rules and I think you'll like what you'll read.

New - Khorne Lord of Skulls Stats & Review

Continuing with my review of the new Apocalypse 40k, I've written up a detailed article about the new Khorne Lord of Skulls. All I can say is, wow! At first glance, it just has a bunch of heavy weapons, but when you start looking at all the rules and options in combination with each other and you realize it's a nasty beast!

Continuing my Apocalypse Review

I could hardly sleep last night, with all the options rolling around in my head. In case you missed it, I wrote a review of the new Apocalypse book last night, an article which is serving as a hub of sorts to more detailed reviews. So far I've covered what is in each chapter of the book, including the awesome Warzone: Armageddon section and the fantastic Datasheets for units not found in any 6th edition codex.

Apocalypse Rulebook Review!

Whew! The book is only hours in my hand, but I could hardly wait to read through it and post a review of the book. First, I should say that it is a gorgeous book with, not only a lot of art and photography, but also a lot of crunch. New rules, tables galore, and a new way to look at 40k battles.

My Apocalypse Book Arrived

It's here! The latest version of Apocalypse for Warhammer 40k 6th edition. It's a beautiful book with full color throughout. So what goodies does it contain?

New Tau Codex Review - Troops

I finished Part 3 of my New Tau Codex review, and this time I've focused on Troops choices. Fire Warriors are just amazing troops, and they can be included in many armies via Allies. With a 30" range and Strength 5 Rapid Fire weapons, what's not to like? Click the link below to read the article and check out my other 6th Edition 40k articles (more than 30 so far!)

As always, check back for future articles and updates, and thanks for reading. Murphy Out!
