The Tau Breacher Teams ventured into the claustrophobic darkness of the space station. They had sent their Kroot allies in advance, they would scout and circle back to ambush the enemy.

As they floated across the battlefields of Hague only death followed. After building the three Venomthropes in the box you are left with almost all the […]Read more "Tutorial: Hague Strain Zoanthropes"
Games Workshop’s new Start Collecting boxes will be released this Saturday. With hefty discounts, decent combinations of units and new formations what is not to like? Well, maybe the burning urge to pick up a box or two and start another army. The Tyranid box consists of a Hive Tyrant, a unit of Warriors and a unit […]Read more "Chitin and Claw – part 5 Hive Vanguard"
