News

  • Vegas!! Contract is signed, we are committed! This is going to be epicly epic! Bards will sing of it in ages to come! Women will swoon, doves will take flight, Frankie will learn to read! The Las Vegas Open will be amazing! February 7th, 8th, and 9th 2014 at…wait for it…Ballys, baby! 15,000 square feet of amazing. More details to follow soon, but mark your calendars!
  • Ky-Yi! Anime Expo is also a go! The Contract is signed, and we are committed! Get your tickets on Anime Expo’s site, AND you have to buy an event ticket and register with us on our site, too which you can find here. A little confusing, but this is how they wanted us to do it. July 6th and 7th. Tickets are already moving fast so grab them while they’re hot!
  • Avatars of War releases 2 new cool models, the Dwarf Master Pathfinder and The Corrupted Scion. They’d make great Fantasy models.
  • Puppets War releases an awesome new robot thingy! Check it out, looks pretty cool!
  • Forgeworld shows us the rumored “missing link” tank that is between a Land Raider and Predator. It is called the Legion Heracles, and it looks pretty cool.

Rumors

  • Space marine Rumors!
  • The Space Marine codex will be broken up into a main book like Eldar, and then mini-dexes that will delve deeper into each chapter, such as a White Scars or Imperial Fists book, much like we’re seeing with Iyanden for Eldar now. Supposedly these mini-dexes will come after all of the main books are redone. Maybe Iyanden is a test run? This ties in with the rumors we were given at the beginning of 6th that there would be flavorful mini-dexes such as Genestealer Cults, etc.
  • If this is true, it gives me hope that there may be Legion specific books for Chaos…..? Please let that be true!
  • More unit options to add a ton of flexibility to list building.
  • Forge World Space Marine Units will be integrated into the book, mostly weapons and some units. The new Horus Heresy book is said to be out by X-Mas with tons of awesome new Adeptus Mechanicus units. The Primarchs will be Corax, Vulkan, and Ferrus Manus
  • Space Marines may be getting a huge Contemptor style Dread on an oval base!

List Review

35pt Seaforge Commision List

  • Gneral Ossrum
    • o Grundback Gunner
    • o Grundback Gunner
    • Min Unit of High Shield Gun Corps (Leader and 5 Grunts)
      • o High Shield UA
      • Min Unit of Forge Guard (Leader and 5 Grunts)
      • Max Unit of Ogrun Assault Corps (Leader and 4 Grunts)
      • Herne & Jonne
      • Brun Cragback & Lug

Thoughts:

  • Considering after any upkeeps from Ossy and the 2 focus for the gunners Ossy only has a focus left,  Brun and Lug are in to give some much needed Heavy Warbeast punch as the list has no Heavy Jack.  An since Lug is not in Ossrum’s Battlegroup he is not pulling on Ossrum’s Focus to be functional.
  • High Shields for infantry clearing
  • Ogrun assault Corps  & Jonne for stealth
  • Forge Guard for smacking lights or all in on a heavy.

Spell use:

  • Snipe would go on the high shields, Herne & Jonne or the Ogrun Assault Corps
  • Fire for effect on H&J or a model in the Ogrun Assault Corps who will be the focus of a combined range attack
  • Bullet Dodger for Ossrum or Cragback.

Question:

  1. Is there spell uses with Ossrum?
  2. Should I take Blasters over Gunners?
  3. 2 Min units (High Shield & Forge Guard) or lose one Min and Max out the other?

    I think the rulebook lists power halberds as the same as power axes (unless codex says differently of course), so DA exarch probably gets +1S AP2 unwieldy weapon?

    So pumped for the new Eldar dex! A little bit nervous how my footdar will fare, but they’ve been solid every edition till now, i’m sure they will own face again.

    Cheers guys
