Moving and a Going Away Present


This past month has been crazy.  The main reason for the craziness is that I am moving.  I will be leaving the DC area and moving to the mid-west. While I won't miss the traffic or the crowds, I will miss an awesome gaming group.

Hobby Time: DIY Wound Markers


With the release of 8th edition we have seen an increase of wounds on most of the non infantry models out there.  Most of these have more than 6 wound making them harder to track with our standard dice.  We could use mulitple dice or different dice to keep track but I think maybe a wound counter might be a better solution.

A New Era has Begun!

This weekend I had the chance to get in 3 small games of 8th edition.  We each played 1000 points army from a different faction.  Even though one game does not give a complete picture of how well or bad and army or unit is, it is a glimpse of what it can do or downfalls it may have.

WIP hormagaunts


In 8th edition, the role of the lowly termagant has changed slightly.  Sure they are still cheap little guys that help bubble wrap our larger monsters from charges.  The difference now I don't need the never ending supply of models since the tervigon doesn’t make new units unless I set aside points for it.  This means that I don’t have to worry about not having enough models when it is time to make more guys since I am only replenishing models that have died.  So, when I found a fresh box of termagants I thought why not makes some hormagaunts.

8th is Here!

 This weekend 8th edition came out.  with all the leaks and previews that have spilled out I have had a good look at this new game.  Now that I have the book in hand I am working though the rules and units on my own.  This bring me to my first dilemma: Toxicrene or Morkanaut.

Seraphim


I continued to paint up my Sisters of battle.  This time I painted up a seraphim.  This could be a superior or one of the Gemini siters that go with Celestine. With the new edition I am not sure what it will be.

Feelings, nothing more than feelings


Last week, I looked at the past and how I did in 7th.  Today I think I will take a look at what we have seen for 8th with three of my favorite factions: Tyranids, Orks, and Genestealer cult.
