LVO 2019

Well the LVO has come and gone and I’m back in the UK (although my brain is still somewhere over the Atlantic!).

Long story short, I had a great time. All my games were fun, all my opponents were good guys, and I had a blast. Vegas is as horrible as ever, but my brother and I found some amazing restaurants, and spent more time together in 3 days than we have in the last 2 years. All in all, a great trip.

The Top 10 Psychic Powers in 40k

It’s time for another top 10 list! This time we are delving into the mystical world of Psykers and their assorted bag(s) of tricks (or just downright hideousness). This page is probably not going to hold much for Tau , Necron or Space Marines players – except perhaps toe curling dread or fist shaking rage!

I have to say that when I was compiling this list, it was a tough, tough cut. There are many psychic powers in the game, and believe me when I say that it was neck and neck between many powers on this list, as well as those among the honorable mentions. As is the norm for these sorts of lists, I suspect that the order (or even inclusion) of some powers will make many of you spit out your coffee in disgust! Stick with us though, and let us know your thoughts as to whether or not you agree, and what you’d have in here instead. read more

Episode 87 – Post Uprising Thoughts

We recount our adventures from Caledonian Uprising 2019, and ponder over some general hobby thoughts!

Gaming with a Disability

Hi All!

I asked my good friend Jonathan Humphrey to write an article based on the challenges of wargaming with a disability and the additional challenges he faced. I hope you enjoy reading about his experiences!

I met Liam last year and we quickly bonded over a shared love of all things Eldar. I walk with a cane, partly because it’s essential to my whole ‘eccentric English gentleman’ shtick, but mostly because I shattered my right knee some years ago and it will never fully heal (and I’m too young to get it replaced). We were talking about the impact this has on 40k for me, especially at tournaments – so much standing! – and I decided to reach out to other disabled players to see if they would share their experiences, which has grown into this article. read more

One Week to LVO

Practice games have been mixed! Last week I had 2 games against Ynarri, 2 against Death Guard and one against Tau.

Soul Burst is so broken!! If it survives a Ynarri Codex I’ll be very disappointed!

Game one against Ynarri, I was educated on what soul bursting shinning spears can do. My opponent went first, and wiped out my Skyweavers and characters in one turn. The mistake I made was keeping them too close together allowing him to soul burst and attack again. I took them out next turn, but with Soul Bursting Dark Reapers, and 3 Ravagers still on the board, it was “game over man”!  read more

The year of the stinky boys

Hey people, been some time since I last blogged here. In fact, it’s a journey over space and time – six months, different hemispheres and different time zones! But I’m glad to be back in the grim darkness of the Scottish 40k scene, and the brutality that goes with it.

Got a few pummellings at my first couple of events back at Bad Decisions and Rapid Fire respectively, but I feel that was all to the good as I had been out of the loop regards competitive play for the best part of three years. Also, due to real life stuff, I was generally showing up with armies that I hadn’t planned or practiced with at all, therefore I got what I deserved! Picked up my 2016 Tau army built around ghostkeels for one event, and non-Deathwatch Primaris marines for the other, so that was always fail for the fail god. I won only one game at each of those events, with a best sportsmanship award to our team at Bad Decisions all to show for it. I even did myself out of the wooden spoon prize at Rapid Fire, for goodness sake. However, like I said it’s been a good thing – reconnected with some old friends, made new ones and it’s also helped me to discover that I may be over taking the meta lists I used to run, and I need an army that inspires me. read more

House Ordos Project Blog – Final Mission

For the final time, Greetings fans of the Executrix!

So you may recall me mentioning at the end of the previous blog that I had arranged an Arrakis themed battle with my good friend Dennie Nuijten.  Dennie is part of the Alliance Open team and also a member of the ETC team for the Netherlands. What made this particularly interesting, was that he also had an Arrakis themed Imperial Knight army – representing the Harkonnen of Giedi Prime!

Before our game commenced, we felt that it was necessary to get some cool shots of our knights in cool battle poses, so check this out first! read more

Two Weeks to the LVO

Image result for harlequins images 40k

Two weeks to go …. and I’ve decided on my list. After all the drama, I’ve decided to stick with the list I took the the Last Chance Open.

The big issue was whether I dropped the Ravagers. Everybody I talked to though I was mad to even think about dropping them. In retrospect I think I was being overly influenced by the 2 games I lost at the LCO, where they were less than optimal. But looking at all my games in the round, I think they’re the best option  – certainly the most flexible. read more

Three Weeks to LVO

Well, as of the writing of this post, there are just over 3 weeks to go to the LVO 2019. List submission is 25th January, so I’m in my usual pre tournament list panic!

I’m just back from the Last Chance Open, an ITC Major of around 100 people. I took the following list
