Whats this 8th ed all about? First Down Under event for a year

Hello folks, Sean here. For those of you that don’t know me, I helped start up the Deathwatch podcast originally, and along with other regular Deathwatch contributor Paul, I started up the Stronghold tournament years ago now, initially to help bring the tournament scene to more casual gamers in the the central belt of Scotland. I enjoyed Liam’s recent post about the expanding Scottish tournament scene and general increase in those looking to play 40k fun but hard, and share his opinion that it’s good to see, as there really was not a lot of it back in the day! read more

Grand Tournament Final List (Custodes & Salamanders)

Hi there, Kraggi from the Varcan Cluster here.

With the grand tournament first game around 100 hours away… its probably time to finalise my army list…

Upcoming Events

Just a quick blast to our subscribers to let you all know we’ve updated our events calendar for the rest of the year (for events we are aware of). If we have not included an event that you’d like included, then get in touch with us and we will make it happen!

40k as an eSport?

I wanted to write an article about something that has emerged as a hot topic in the weeks following the LVO (no not TonyGate!), and talk about the new business venture that Nick Nanavati has set up for competitive Warhammer 40,000 followers.

If you’re unaware of these, the links below will hopefully explain all:

The Brown Magic

Nights At the Game Table (March 19th Post)

I also want to preface my post by saying that i’ve never played Nick, or indeed never met or spoken to him.

One of the things that I noted from reading some posts on Nick’s website, is that one of his primary goals is to grow and foster the global competitive 40k community. The below excerpt is from his website: read more

How to win without rolling dice- Part 2- Setting your shit up

We’ve all been there- you walk up to a table in a tournament, exchange a friendly greeting with your next opponent, agree terrain, exchange lists. As you read your opponents list you highlight threats, double check wargear, look for the usual combos you’ve read about online*. You form a battleplan, place objectives, start rolling dice. Everything is good so far.

Then you start deploying. You and your opponent start placing units, everything is good so far.

Then your opponent does something you didn’t expect, your battle plan goes out of your head and you start reacting to them, throwing units willy-nilly at the table with no thoughts to measuring, spacing, combos. By the end of the deployment phase you have cocked your first 2 turns up and given advantage to your opponent. You want to blame dice but can’t. Your self-loathing reaches new heights (this last one may just be me…) read more

Winning a dice game without rolling dice- Part 1

About a year ago I started playing Blood Bowl. It’s the first “Specialist Game” I’ve played since I played a game of Mordheim when I was 12 years old (played incorrectly with barely understood rules against a friend using lego models as his warband) and I threw myself into the worship of Nuffle- only having to paint 11-12 models, easy to transport, easy to learn but difficult to master. I’ve since got involved in both tabletop and online leagues and got my skill to a decent enough level to at least compete with seasoned veterans of the game* read more
