Ok guys.  We need some help for the ol' Gamer DMZ in Kokomo.  They are working hard to win back fans and people to show up to the store.  This weekend they are having a Magic: The Gathering Avacyn Restored Pre-release party.

FoW: The Battle Of El Sodor-mein

by SandWyrm

A couple of weeks ago Farmpunk and I had a Flames of War Battle down in the Man-Cave. We were a little sick of the same old hills/trees/rocks thing that we'd been doing for terrain up to that point. So we um... appropriated some of my kids' train toys to help re-create the famous battle between Patton and Rommel at the port of El Alamein. ;)

Some new confidence.

By TheGraveMind

Firstly I want to say good luck to everyone who is going to Adepticon this weekend. I hope you all have a lot of fun!

After almost a month sitting on the side lines, doing a little painting and a few casual games, it seems I'm finally getting my feet back in the game....competitively.

I Do Like 40k, I Swear!

By Outremer

Sorry, couldn't find any cheerleaders. . . but I do love 40k!  I've spent the last couple days slaving over the following to prove it!

I Actually Like 40K! No You Don't!

Ensuring Honest Rolling (Or... The Geek That Kicked The Hornets' Nest) - Updated

by SandWyrm

I've just spent most of the day writing up proper dice rules for The M42 Project. Once I'd finished the how-to-roll-2D6 nonsense, I realized that games like 40K, Warpath, and Flames should really include a few pages of rules on what sorts of dice are legal to use in a competitive game. It would solve a lot of problems! So here's my anti-cheating rules. Let me know what you think!

Getting Ready For Adepticon: Wolves Or Knights?

by Spaguatyrine

So Adepticon is less than a week away and I am second guessing my army list.   My original thought was space wolves as they are my best army overall at this point.   I also hadn't played in nearly three months until this past Saturday........................

Upcoming Indy Event - 1500 pt 40k Tournament

By: Wineas

If you're like me, you went to register for Adepticon, only to find that every event you wanted to sign up for was already sold out.  Rather than drive to Chicago and pay to stay in some stranger's bed, I'm staying home and running a tournament right here in my back yard (That's not completely true.  It's in a store.  The store is close to my back yard, though).   If you're free, and want to get your 40k-on, come to Indianapolis and play with us!

Oh The Stories We Could Tell.

By TheGraveMind

I never really gotten burned out from playing 40k. I know a lot of people after a Saturday tournament don't want to play a pick up game on sunday. I've never had that feeling of, "I've had enough/too much". After the Indy GT is the closest I've gotten. I was working on projects and exams up until 2pm friday. I then went home and started painting my army for 12 hours straight. I actually ended up getting sick after the first day and not going to the second day. (might have something to do with getting a total of like 12 hours of sleep for the entire week leading up to it). Since then I've been working on a couple little painting projects here and there, and playing some more casual games. And that is where this story begins....

New Paints, Quick Review.

By TheGraveMind

So Real Life has been kicking my tush as of late, what little free time I've had has been spent hobbying and very little gaming (but that is another post on its way). I did manage to make to the store and grabbed a few of the new paints. Here is my brief review from an amateur painter's perspective.

Moving Away From Melta Everywhere

by SandWyrm

This is something that I just posted to The M42 Project, but which I thought would be of interest over here on TB40K as well. One of our readers asked how, with melta so required now to counter tanks, that we might diversify the various factions more. My answer is to change the basic mechanics of the game so that melta is beneficial, but not required.

What's the only thing better than a Nurgle Dreadnought?
