Warpflame Math and You

With the new chaos books arriving I have decided to start a Tzeentch army; because three chaos armies aren't enough.  Unfortunately, my first two games went terribly.  My first game, I didn't have any board control and got bottled into a corner.  The second game, I summoned as many squads of pink horrors as I could and had great board control.  Unfortunately this left me with almost no warp charges to cast witchfires and I only ended up killing one unit the whole game.

Stormcast Terminator

I love making conversions.  They break up some of the monotony of hobbying, and they give you an opportunity to have models that are completely unique.  Currently I am working on converting some Stormcast Eternals into Daemonkin Terminators.

Last weekend I had my Nurgle Guardsmen stand in to represent a Genestealer cult and it was a ton of fun.

Frontline Gaming: Why Do Deathstars Work?

I wrote an article for Frontline Gaming about why deathstar style units work.

For anyone interested in the proof of why it is better to stack buffs rather than spread them out; here you go.

Organizing Your Game Room

For years, my game room has looked like a near disaster.  As the final project of the summer, I decided that I wanted to clean things up and make it look better.  I knew that I would need several shelves to hold my battlefoam and my bits, as well as a system of organization for my paints and brushes.  Here are the results

Blood For the Blood God!

In the past, I have been hesitant to ally an army to my daemonkin.  Non-Daemonkin units don't generate blood tithe points.  To get around this issue, you can attach a daemonkin character to any unit that is a battlebrother, and they will gain the ability to generate blood tithe points with their kills.

Hounds of Khorne

I finished up my squad of flesh hounds and I got a chance to try them out on the battlefield.

Painting Flames

My most recent project has me painting a lot of flames, so I wanted to whip up a guide to share how I make them look extra hot.

Now that summer has arrived, I am back on my extreme painting schedule.

Expanding Daemonkin

As I push forward with my Khorne Daemonkin I have begun to develop a gameplan that is a bit more than, "make an army that looks REALLY good."  The recent addition of renegade knight rules has me itching to build one (or two), and I wanted to design a force with a knight as the centerpiece.

Revisiting the Tactical Objectives App

Back in January I reviewed the tactical objectives app and there were some serious issues.  Recently, there has been an update, so I wanted to revisit the app and see how things worked.

Draft FAQ's

The warhammer community page recently posted a draft of their next FAQ's.  Many of the changes are wording clarifications, but some of the changes are balance changes that will have a much bigger impact on gameplay.

The Best of the Worst

Recently, my gaming group got on the topic of, "What is the worst list that you can actually field?"  We talked about the worst units that people actually own as well as the most useless upgrades available.  Eventually we came up with an idea for a 'Best of the Worst' tournament.

Crimson Slaughter Formations

Crimson Slaughter formations have been spotted!  It must be Christmas for Chaos!  This time around though, we ended up with a pair of lumpy socks...

Inspired by a music video from one of my favorite bands, I recently embarked on one of my most ambitious conversion projects to date.

Daemon Engine Pack

The Daemon Engine Pack is one of the leaked formations from the updated Black Legion codex.  It stands out as a very competitive option, and today I am taking a look at how it stacks up against an Imperial Knight.

Chaos Formations? Chaos Formations!!!!

Today is a glorious day for Chaos.  Formations have been spotted for the Black Legion supplement.

I have been hard at work painting and converting models from the Age of Sigmar starter set over the past few weeks.  Here are my results.

Power Sword of Lightning Claw?

As I continuously tweak my army, I tend to try out different ideas that don't end up on your standard internet lists.  Today I take a look how the standard power sword stacks up against a single lightning claw.  The results are unexpected, but not for the reasons that are obvious.

Brawl! Imperial Knight Vs Lord of Skulls

Once again, we have two giant monsters punching each other in the face.  In the blue corner, we have an Imperial Knight!  Nobel, honorable, and armed with a very large chainsword.  In the very very red corner, we have the Lord of Skulls!  Let's see how these two stand up to each other

Daemonkin Troops

I have been toying with the idea of building a Khorne Daemonkin army for a while.  Since I am finally about to pull the trigger I decided to start analyzing the daemonkin units to figure out what is most effective.  I decided to start with troops since they form the core of any army.

On Daemon Formations

There are a lot of upcoming changes for daemons, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts.

Bloodthirster Vs Knight: A Re-Visit

When I originally wrote the article about a Bloodthirster fighting an Imperial Knight there was quite a lot that got simplified.  The destroyer table makes mathematical calculations particularly tricky.  Since then I have reworked my figures and now have more accurate results, and the new results are a bit more dramatic.

Removing paint: An Advanced Technique

Many of my models are repurposed models from second and third edition.  Over the years I have tried a variety of techniques to removed paint from both plastic and metal models. The most common method is soaking your models in Simple Green or Purple Power for several days and then going at them with a toothbrush and warm water.  Today I have a new technique for anyone wishing to expedite the process.

Brawl! Dreadnought Vs Daemon Prince

One of the most common questions I get is, "In a fight between this unit and that unit, which one is going to win?"  I did some extensive calculations when I paired an imperial knight vs a bloodthirster, but I want to make this a more regularly featured type of article.  So, I want to introduce you to "Brawl!", where I pair of two units and see who comes out on top.  First up Dreadnought vs Daemon Prince

Tactical Objectives App Review

I recently lost my deck of tactical objectives (again).  This also coincided with the arrival of the tactical objectives app.  I decided, "What the heck, lets buy this app and see how it works."  The results were less than stelar.
