Oh I’m so excited about the coming Codex Thousand Sons. I’ve been painting away at my squads and units. Slowly but surely starting to see the end of all final details. The brotherhood is nearing completion. No, no, no we can have that. A complete army is anathema, we cannot accept that. Time for reinforcements! […]Read more "To fight the War on Fate"
We did not damn our brothers only embrace servitude and offer fealty to the Great Corruptor. The same Warp Deity who cursed our Legion with his gifts of mutation and flesh-change in first place. Only fools, greedy or simple fools, thread the paths of lies set by Tzeentch and betray our brothers a second time. […]Read more "Paint job: Sol Mikh’Ar, Exalted Sorcerer"
Thursday night the Warhammer Community Team threw down a preview game between Adeptus Custodes and Thousand Sons. Yes, they gave a sneak peak of the new Codex for the Thousand Sons. I probably missed a lot, misremembered some more but this is what I picked up. Reroll 1s on the invulnerable saves is out. I […]Read more "First glance at Codex Thousand Sons"

Gold. I’m painting gold. Gold gold gold. And washing it too. Once that’s done as dried I’ll have to drybrush gold all over it again. God, it never ends. I hope to get this done before January ends. Don’t want to mess up Azazel’s “Painting Decemb-uary” challenge. But to be frank, I can’t see myself […]Read more "WIP: Lord of Skulls, part 2"
I knew it was coming, that it was only question of time but still, big news today – Games Workshop revealed that the Thousand Sons Codex is coming soon. They also revealed that Adeptus Custodes will get a Codex for 40k. *Shrug* Not very surprising at all (even if the community team hyped it as […]Read more "Codex Thousand Sons on the horizon"
The two sets of matched play missions found in the main rules come with both advantages and disadvantages. The Eternal War missions are strategic but static while the Maelstrom of War missions are dynamic but random. Out of the two set I prefer Eternal War, mainly because the mission objectives are known beforehand and you […]Read more "Taking a look at the new ITC Champions Missions"
