A New Project: Mechanised Cadians

As of late I've become bored of playing with Space Marines constantly (only took me 11 years or so). So with that I've decided to embark on a project that I've had on the back burner since 3rd edition, Mechanised Cadians.

An overview of Codex: Space Marines - HQ Choices

I have just recently started putting together a Space Marine army and have read up on numerous forums and blogs the pros and cons of the different units available. What follows is the culmination of my knowledge and experience concerning Codex: Space Marines. It is important to note that special characters will not be featuring in this overview as: A) The abilities that they bring can dramatically change the paradigm of certain units. B) I personally don't believe in the use of special characters as generally speaking they are either too good for their points or not good enough.

Upcoming Game - A_Bomb!: The Brooklyn Bomber

On Tuesday I'll be playing against an awesome guy called A_Bomb!. He's a really nice guy with a love for Cryx and Legion. We're gonna be playing the scenario Convergence at 50 points. The game will use 10 minute turns and the ability to stop the clock for abilities triggering in opponents turns. It should be a total shitfest with some serious shit going down on both sides.

Lich Lord Asphixious - Spell and Feat Analysis

"I do like me some eGaspy. I just wander him around the battlefield, limp wristed with contempt regarding my opponent's ability to kill him, reaping souls, and EXCARNATING everything that I see as a good target (which is everything)." - Darknesse

I've always loved Lich Lord Asphixious. Why? Because his arrogant demeanour and cool moves have made him a fan favourite. Plus, his striking resemblance to David Lo Pan also helps. I've started on a 300 page epic about my time with him during 1921. The book is called "My Summer with Lich Lord Asphixious." and should be out some time in 2041. At first glance he seems really odd, until you get his schtick. Lich Lord Asphixious loves attrition and being nigh impossible to kill. So let's have a look at what he's got to offer in his spell list.

Building - Dark Angels Librarian

Here is the first of many posts for the Dark Angels army I am building. You'll have to forgive the mediocre image quality of this project as I'm working with quite an old digital camera.

Battle Report - The Trials and Travails of Lich Lord Asphixious

A good friend of mine Marcus played against A_Bomb a week ago. The game was amazing with Kommander Strakhov facing off vs Lich Lord Asphixious. The game was set at 50 points and both players were using very strong tournament style lists. Marcus' artwork is amazing and the detail is stunning. Check it out at Marcus' Blog: Here.

Battle Report - Federico: The Mailed Fist of Menoth

I've fought Federico about four or five times this year, and so I thought I'd be ready for Menites blowing my shit up. I was fucking wrong. The sheer tenacity of fighting that took place last night was horrendous with some outstanding tricks being used. Just as a warning, this battle report is FUCKING EPIC. It's over 3000 words long. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, here's the low down. The game was set at 50 points with A_Bomb! (our local hero from Brooklyn) setting up the battlefield. The victory condition was Assassination.
