Eldar vs Tzeentch 2000 points match

Hi All, Martin here.

Sam recently asked me for a 2000 point game so he could try out his Tzeentch army to get a feel for what units he might put together to make a competative list. Normally I would just run, in true Saim Hann style, Jetbikes, Jetbikes and a few Jetbikes on the side but Sam asked if I could bring all my 'Big Guns' so he could really see hopw his army performed.

I took:

Craftworld Warhost

Windrider Host consisting of a Skyrunner Farseer, A skyrunner Warlock, A vyper with 2 Shuriken Cannons and 3 squads of 3 Windriders, all upgraded with Shuriken Cannons.

A Nightspinner

A Fire Prism

A Wraithknight with 2 Heavy Wraithcannons

Aspect Host consiting of 4 Dark Reapers, 5 Fire Dragons and 5 Warp Spiders

Combined Arms Detachment

HQ - Warlock

Troops - 3 sqauds of 5 Dire Avengers (Dire Avenger Shrine formation)

Elites - 5 Wraithgaurd

Fast Attack - Crimson Hunter

Heavy Support - Vaul's Wrath Support Battery with a D-Cannon

We deployed for Contact Lost counting the hills as a 5+ cover save due to a lack of ruins available.

Sam won the roll and took the 1st turn after I failed to take the initiative.

His flying HQ's made quick work getting right in to the fight!!

 I havent really used my Wraithknight before so I sat it at the back for most of the game taking overpowered shots at Sams Daemons. In future I will be alot more agressive with it and get it into the fight for some Fist-i-cuffs!!

 Sams skimmers brought the fight to my side of the field, quickly joined by his Warlord

 I threw as much fire power at them as I could and quickly reduced them to a smoking wreck.

 Sams Horrors made a conga line to hold objective 3 whilst still being in range for his Psychic attacks (He had in excess of 30 Warp charges per turn!!) 
My warp spiders later jumped over and quickly despatched them back to the hell they came from

Sam played very wisely holding vital cover and at 1st casting multiple Cursed Earths to give himself a re-rollable  2+ Invun Save!! Thankfully his units started to seperate by turn 2 reducing this to something I could actually deal damage to.

It was an awesome game, and it ended with me winning by a single Line breaker point!! Im looking forward to Sams next test list!!

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

Echoes of War

Hello everyone, Sam here with a write up on another awesome weekend of dice and fun in Cardiff. Our hosts for the weekend, the Vale Renegades  are a group that we met over a year ago at a tournament in Bristol and since then have attended several of each other’s tournaments. Echoes of War was an ITC event with 34 competitors at the fantastic venue of Firestorm Games. This post is going to have a brief overview of the day as well as a few pictures and synopsis of all 5 games that I had over the weekend. So Sam, Bruce, Chris, Jamie and Jack were joined by Jack’s brother Scott (making them the Brothers Grimdark), Tom Baker from Code40K and Battered Bristles ( ( and Ian, made the 2 hour or so drive down to Cardiff for a weekend of games. A few of us had been to their last tournament Seeds of Destruction last September and were very excited about returning. Prior to the event, the Vale Renegades shared a list of all…

Games Workshop's Live Q&A; Thoughts On 8th Edition.

Hey guys, it's Bruce here with our first blog update in a long old while.

If you are reading this blog, chances are you know a thing or two about tabletop games, so you probably know that GW just officially confirmed what we all knew was coming: a new edition of Warhammer 40k!
I sat down this afternoon and watched GW's amazing live Q&A session and I've made notes on all the big changes they have confirmed will come with the new edition.

Lets take a look:

Big image behind the two hosts (Pete Foley, heading the team behind 8th ed and Andy Smilie, the head of the community team) is a large space marine helmet, blue on one side and green on the other. Probably hinting at the Ultramarine / Deathguard starter set?Andy repeatedly mentions that a huge amount of the rules have been created using feedback from the Facebook page and online forums like Bolter and Chainsword / Dakkadakka etc.Movement is changing. No longer blanket ruling different types of units (infantry, beasts, bike…
