BREAKING NEWS: Imperial Fists, Crimson Fists, Black Templars Stratagems and Chapter Tactics!

Crazy long title... I think this would have been better as two reveals on Warhammer Community, if only to spare my poor typing hands.

Okay, let's get this ball rolling on the collective Sons of Dorn!

Imperial Fists First up the chapter tactic. As for the Salamanders and Iron Hands, I'll just copy and paste from the previous post:

Imperial Fists, Siege Masters
No bonuses for cover saves against IMPERIAL FISTS modelsRe-roll failed To-Wound rolls against buildings
Somewhat situational I feel, but definitely useful for shooting up Infantry in cover and during night fighting. I don't think this is a terribly attractive Chapter Tactic compared to the rest though... perhaps it's made up for with a strong Stratagem to be revealed later? Undoubtedly universal for every unit that can have it. Like the Iron Hands it's not hugely exciting, which is why I think a lot of people will tend to gloss over it. However, consider that a lot of psychic powers out there will be giving bon…

Primaris Space Marine Paint Planner

The good chaps over at Games Workshop marketing have just released a bit of fluff on the Ultima Founding, the latest crop of Space Marine chapters.

These are all based around the Primaris Space Marines, so expect your current Marines to fade away. Again, not a bad thing, as it's just a shift to True Scale Space Marines that still lets you play with your old stuff whilst you transition.

To help you buy their new models, Games Workshop have also given you a nifty line drawing of a Primaris Space Marine, so you can plan your new Chapter.

Now I'm certain they didn't intend to add all those little gaps in the lines making it hard for you to use simple drawing editors to plan your marines on computer, nor did they realise how difficult it would be to do so on .pdf format.

So I fixed it for them. Here's the same thing with the gaps filled in, and in easy to edit .jpeg format. Don't worry Gee Dubs... Tabletop Teacher's got your back!

In all seriousness, I've done this for my student neophytes to plan their paint schemes. I sincerely don't know why Games Workshop decided to make computer editing more challenging for people, and I can only assume it was done for some kind of Copyright reasons. But it might just be some more benign reasons, such as a dodgy re-scale. Ether way, if someone from GW wants me to take it down, just let me know.

Until next time!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Anyone got a good app for this I'm on a tablet

    1. If I see any pop up I'll make a post about it. For now, all I have to offer are the old Space Marine Painters over on Bolter and Chainsword (

      A bit clunky on a tablet, but it's fairly comprehensive.

  2. any chance you know of a Stormcast painter aswell ?
    seems like a missed opportunity by GWs in my eyes...

    1. You know what? You're right. Post incoming.
