Suspicious activity: New Ork Boyz kit inbound?

Image
I have a spare few minutes waiting for my Scarf catalogue to print out, and just popped on over to see how Orktober is going. I ave to admit I was underwhelmed by the orkiness of the month until about a week ago.

Now with Klan Kultures revealed and new trukks and gubbinz leaking all over the interwebz, I feel my WAAAAGGHHH!!! rising in a way only fandom marketing and advertising can do. Well done Games Workshop Ad' Ladz!

What's caught my eye is the sudden disappearance of Boyz from the Games Workshop website. Even the Start Collecting Kit has vanished, and so I'm guessing some new kit is inbound. This would explain why the ork Kill Team box set has featured Burna Boys, instead of the standard Troops choice everyone else gets.

The good side? Well, new models are always nice and the old kits were rather busy models for a horde army. Not a bad thing to have detail on a model, but for a  model that actually might die to a lasgun shot it was an awful lot of effort. This would …

First, things that keep me from blogging:

But the things that keep me blogging?

"Reivers... they're like Space Marine ninjas."



Ork snipers...


Vicious fire fights


The inexorable approach of The Law... and Kau'yon ambushes.


And finally... the Light of the Emperor


Kill Team has been a fantastic thing for the school club, and I really hope to share all the stories falling out of it soon. Sorry for the lack of regular updates.

Until next time.

Sneak peak: How to paint "Space" Wolves

Image
About a subtle as a brick to the face that title.

It's been a mad week, with Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, new reporting systems and other events kicking off, hence the total lack of posts. I have been saving this for a while, at least until the Genestealer Cults investigation is complete. I'm unlikely to finish until next week though, so enjoy this small preview of my new "Space Wolf" Great Company colour scheme.

Yes, this post and the piece I did on Magnus are two of the forms of suicide on Fenris.


I do like how the base green came out, and unlike many similar guides didn't need anything apart from standard Citadel paints. A proper guide is incoming!

Until next time! Hopefully! If I can avoid the Sons of Russ a few days longer...

Kill Team Guide: The disappointing truth of Genestealer Cults Tactics

Image
With one gem amongst the other situational and niche Tactics, the Genestealer Cults are going to be more reliant on the general and Specialist tactics. With the School League ruling that only 5 Tactics per force are allowed, I can’t see these seeing much use.

With that said, they do provide some interesting reactions to situations, and so have their place in less restrictive Matched, Open and Narrative play.


General Tactics
Tactic: Unnatural SensesUse when a model is declared as the target of a chargeThe model may fire Overwatch even if the model isn’t visible The model counts as obscuredCost: 1CP
We’re not starting off with a great one, being as amazingly niche as it is. The model being obscured only counts in terms of Injury rolls, Overwatch needed natural 6s to Hit in any case. In anything but the school’s league this is a nifty tactic to bring out as a surprise to the enemy. However, if you’re ever limited in the number of tactics you can bring feel free to skip this one.

Tactic: D…

I done a YouTube...

It's been a long day (actually haven't finished yet... 8:30pm and still 3 contact hours to go), and I'm just about tired enough not to care about how embarrassed I am about this. I made a YouTube clip of a older blog article.


I'm strongly considering switching to this instead of the written blog, but I appreciate I have a lot to learn about video making. I also love writing, and it would be a massive wrench to drop the written form. A happy medium between written blog and video content is probably what I'd strive for.

And of course, the video content would just be the same as written. The same nerdy stuff and over thinking rules and list crafting.

Well, all that is something of a pipe dream. Enjoy my dulcet tones.

Or at least I'm sorry for my funny voice.

Until  next time!

Kill Team Guide: Secrets of the Sicarians

Image
I'm officially on my second week of non-stop late nights at work, by which I mean I literally do not get out of the boarding house until 11pm after a 7am start. With the idea of a robot body having more and more appeal, we wrap up our analysis of the AdMech with some of my favourite models from Games Workshop: the Sicarians.


Sicarians The Sicarian frame is not the sturdiest in the world, but hits hard and fast. It’s no tank, and it shouldn’t be fielded as such, more an aggressive and panic inducing model.

The common attributes of the Sicarian models are as follows:

Bionics: 6+ invulnerable save2 WoundsLightning quick 8-inch movementStrength 4
They are tougher and faster than your Skitarii units, and at first blush are geared for all out assault. Toughness 3 is not quite the detriment it was in older editions of 40K. It’s still relatively weak, but you’ll be caught by 2+ To Wound rolls less often in Kill Team than in 7th or older.

Strength 4 alongside their wargear options puts the…
