Der Tiger Ist Mein!!!

by SandWyrm

Finally, a tank I can go right down the middle of the map with in World of Tanks! Well... sometimes. When there's not a Maus and 3 Lowes above me in the fight. Farmpunk and I did a battle tonight where my Tiger and his T-29 were the scouts at the bottom of the list. Ouch!

Sisters of ....?

by farmpunk

I've been trying hard not to look at the rumors for My beloved Sisters of battle. I know they're leaking out there, and I know Heresy Online's got some rumors stewing, and Warseer's got rumors simmering, and TastyTaste's been working on rounding up the rumors. (Which I'm glad, I don't really want to waste my time on the speculation.)

but the rumors have gotten my panties in a bunch. Some changes are rumored to be made that will change the playstyle of the army. (besides losing Inducted IG)

Why Do We Roll So Many Dice In 40K?

by SandWyrm

40K: "Hi, my name is 40K, and I have a problem." 

Players: "Hi 40K!"

40K: "I'm, I'm... I'm addicted to needless dice rolling."

Players: (Applause)

Hobby Pro tip

by TheGraveMind

Pro tip #1; Let the glue dry.

Simple really, and yet I've done it twice on the same project. I start painting, and the glue gives. Now I have wet paint on a piece that I can't handle that I need to glue back together. Sigh.

Thoughts on List Building

By TheGraveMind

I'm neither dead nor forgotten. I've been working a lot more on the hobby side of things lately, and when I can, I'm getting games in with some random lists I've made getting good inspiration. I had been running Mech Angels as my tournament list, and they have been doing well for me. I tried Jumpers again but they just don't seem to work that well on short notice. I've been thinking up some ideas for a Tyranid list to play for fun. I've had some ideas on general list building, and I figured it was time to make a post again.

The end of 40k .............for Uberdark

by uberdark

So as some of you may know, I have given up 40k, I am not going into specifics why, because it would be a long as hell trolling of various aspects.  What I will say is that in September I am selling my things to Archfiend/aka: evil ted.

A Better Hellhound?

by SandWyrm

Saw this concept rendering over on Beasts of War for a new model by Secret Weapon Miniatures. Nice. It's the first Hellhound-like model I've seen that I like better than my own conversions. It looks both fast and scary at the same time. :)

Why Not Warmachine?

by SandWyrm

I was reading through VT2's embarrassing rant on 3++ today when I started wondering why I haven't given Warmachine a proper try. I've been trying Kings of War. I've bought into Malifaux (We need to play Uberdark!!!). And yesterday I picked up the rulebook for Flames of War to scratch the itch that World of Tanks has started. At some point Farmpunk and I will try out Warpath. But why not Warmachine?

Space Wolves vs Sisters of Battle Apoc Style

By Spaguatyrine

John and I decided to play a 2500 point Apocalypse game to test a potential Apocalypse tournament he wants to run in the future. We had a blast with a the rules basically being 1 superheavy with no D weapons. The game came down to the wire....

If 40K Had Better Tank Rules...

by SandWyrm

I've been playing World of Tanks for about a week now. With 364 battles under my belt, or a bit more than double my 5th Edition 40K experience, I'm starting to crave some changes to how vehicles work in 40K. Here's my accumulated thoughts.

What Tank Is This?

by SandWyrm

I'm Baaaaaaaak to the TB40K!

I just spent a week out in the middle of Kansas farm country with Mrs. SandWyrm's relatives. She saw beautiful rolling farms and horses/cows. I saw ideal tank country. :)

Las/Plas Razorback vs. Twin Linked Assault Cannon Razorback

By Spaguatyrine

With the increased melta meta game light armored transports have taken over the 40k battlefield instead of heavy armored Landraiders.   This goes to question which Razorback is the best option?
Is it....
