Dear Games Workshop

Dear Games Workshop

Thank you for your recent FAQ. I really appreciate you taking the time to work on the rules as the game develops and deal with issues as they arise. However, (and you knew this was coming), I want to discuss the change to the Flip Belt rule for Harlequins, limiting it to work only in the movement phase.

This has a devastating effect on an army I love, and one I’ve played since the start of 8th edition. 

I think I understand the issue you were seeking to address – the ability to deep strike a model onto the top of a ruin, 9” from any enemy models, but within 1” horizontally. If Flip Belts (or FLY) allowed that model to ignore vertical distance in the assault phase, one need only “roll” a 1” charge. read more

Harlies at the ITC Scottish Open

I’m just back from the ITC Scottish Open, hosted by Knightly Gaming in Lanark, Scotland. I drove there with 2 friends, so we’ll have the usual road trip report on the podcast soon – but for those of you who just can’t wait (!) this is my Tournament report for the blog.

Harlies for ITC Bunker War

Image result for 40k harlequins and knights

I’m going to the ITC 40k Bunker War next weekend. It’s the first of 6 tournaments I have lined up before the LVO early next year. 

I’ve never been to this tournament before and I have no idea what to expect. So I think I need a reasonably balanced Harlies list. 

Last time I spoke about lists I was running my “standard” Harlies list – Shadowseer, Troupe Masters x2, Troupe’s x5, Starweavers x5, Archon and 3 Ravagers with disintegrators. It’s a good all round list with an answer for pretty much everything. However, it lacks an easy answer to Knights. You need to get the Starweavers up close and personal (ideally within 3”) with their Fusions Pistols before you can really take a Knight apart. And while it is reasonably easy to get 3 Starweavers that close to a Knight (assuming no bubble wrap … not a safe assumption), Pistols are unreliable. read more

Harlies and Ravagers

Image result for images ravagers 40k

So in my previous post I said I’ve played 4 games with one of my “possible” lists. The list I’ve played with is

Harlies Battalion (Soaring Spite)

Shadowseer

Troupe Master, Fusion, Caress

Troupe Master, Fusion, Caress

Solitaire

Troupe, 4 Fusion, 4 Caresses x 5

Starweaver x 5

Drukhari Spearhead (Black Heart)

Archon, Splinter Pistol, Huskblade

Ravager, 3 Disintegrator Cannons x 3

A quick recap on the games and some thoughts on the list.

NuMarines for the competitive win? Yeah nah bro

Greetings loyal citizens.

As I alluded to in the aftermath of the last event I attended, I have abandoned my heresy – for the short term anyways – and decided to see if I can utilise the hammer of the Emperor in a tournament for the first time in close to a decade. Though, once a heretic, always a heretic, so via the median of Indomitus Crusade reinforcements I’ve taken the once-traitors of the Lamenters as my weapon of choice for my next event. They are loyal, alright? Even the Inquisition agreed, after they’d crusaded to their near destruction without being allowed to induct new marines for 100 years. And they’re not cursed, just unlucky. Even more so with me painting them. read more

Coulrophobia – Part 3

Image result for images harlequins 40k

Embrace your Inner Geek here with the Third instalment of my Harlequins Review. This time the generic Stratagems and Enigmas.

Coulrophobia Part 2

Image result for harlequins 40k images

Embrace Your Inner Geek here again with the second instalment of my Harlequins Codex review. Up this time, Masques. 

Masque forms, are the Harlequin equivalent of “chapter tactics”. There are 6, and all have associated Enigmas (what Harlies call their Relics), Warlord Traits and Stratagems. In this instalment I’ll deal with each of the Forms, and discuss their associated rules. They’re not all great to be honest, but there are a couple of really good one.

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
