New 8th Edition Space Marines have Landed: We’re Feeling out the Strange, New Meta!

Excuse me it’s been a while since I did a battle report but I soon discovered with the new codex that… there’s a lot to discover! In this article I will share some of my early findings (positives and negatives) while sprinkling in some various shots of games (not just my own.) I’ve been playing a lot of games whenever

Ultramarines Quickie Battle Report: New Space Marines Codex for 8th edition

This is just going to be a brief overview using a list I more or less feel is pretty accurate. As I write this I don’t have the new codex in my hands but I’ve played a few games with the new rules and the Ultramarines in particular. It’s funny how the rules overall seem really decent, but there’s no

Games Workshop Announces New Space Marine Units, and Doctrines. How is this going to change the Space Marine Meta?

First it was the announcement of a main codex, and mini codex Supplements. Then came the re-introduction of DYI Chapters, and flexible chapter tactics. Now we see some game changing mechanics introduced with ‘lighter’ Primaris units. And on top of it, we now see the re-introduction of “Doctrines”! What edition is this? Third? Fourth? Quick Peek at New Units: Most

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).

Testing Shadowspear and Vigilus Ablaze

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

Chaos and Vigilus Ablaze. The short and sweet of it.

We are fresh out of the gates with a host of new models, a codex tweak (I can’t call it more than that) and a set of new Specialization Detachments that strongly mimic 7th edition’s Formations. 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,

A Vigilus Battle Report: The Indomnitus Crusaders

The Ultramarines struggle to defend the Vigilus world and keep the Nihilus open for the Imperium. 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

Mechanicus Knights Hobby Update

For the love of Mars I don’t know what I was thinking over the Christmas break, but I decided to come up with a personal challenge to get myself playing and working on Adeptus Mechanicus and Imperial Knights. Long story short I had set about the task of completing the following: 2 Kastelan Robots w/Magnetized wrist mounts. 2 Armiger Helverins
