Chaos Hobby Update and Tactics: The Lord Discordant

Let’s get to the fun stuff right away… I finally finished perhaps one of my favorite models of the new Chaos line up; my THIRD Lord Discordant!!! They aren’t the funnest models to paint. The trim is (as all NEW Chaos trim is) VERY labor intensive. The models aren’t too flexible so you are making minor adjustments to the the

New Chaos Knights in the Meta. I test some things out.

I am wondering (in the long term) how the meta reacts to this. Some people think the options provide a good add on for a Chaos army but we have Renegade dual gattlings already ( arguably the best current knight load out). We also already have Forgeworld options which have the dual benefit of being Daemon engines and have access

Testing Shadowspear and Vigilus Ablaze

Hello everyone! Sorry to have left such a gap. I haven’t been posting as much as usual but I have been playing, and painting a LOT. I’m several games in now with the reveal of the new Ablaze Detachments and I’ve tried every unit now from Shadowspear and tried to form my own conclusions on the new units. In a

It’s very early but from everything I’ve gone from I’ve created a short cut for the basic info I’ve found on the Chaos Detachments,

Marneus Calgar, fresh from his Primaris conversion process, struggles with the pain in the aftermath but the Orks care not for there is only war. I have played quite a few games using the new Specialist Detachment found in the Vigilus Campaign Book. In

Games Workshop Vigilus Campaign Reveal: Calgar goes Primaris and so does the Victrix Guard. (Some Black Legion as well!)

I’m super excited by this, and I know it’s a very contentious issue in our hobby but we all have to understand; the hobby has to grow. To quote the most hated of Xenos scum… it’s for “The Greater Good”. Love or hate Primaris this weekend Games Workshop revealed what their teaser video had hinted at. Marneus Calgar would step

A Quick Rundown of the New Imperial Knights: Some Combo’s to consider.

With the Knights out in mere days I wanted to see what appealed from the Mechanicus angle. That is to say we’re taking a quick look at some of the combo’s in the ‘Mechanicus Aligned’ Houses. First off is the one everyone is familiar with House Taranis. To me Taranis talks to the Death Guard player in me. It’s definitely
