  • Anime Expo! It’s coming up soon, grab those tickets quickly!
  • Las Vegas Open tickets will be up for sale in July. Get ready to buy and when you book your hotel room please do it through our link so we get credit for it. We have to hit a certain number of rooms booked or we get owned.
  • Start sending in pics of your army with the list for review if you have them! Also, lately we have been getting a lot of lists. It may just be a spike in submissions, but we will double up for the time being, however reviewing two lists a show is a bit cumbersome, we may have to cut back.
  • 40K Battle Builder sent to us by Dave Ankarlo with the Renegade Open GT. Tickets are up for sale for that event now!  This is a really cool idea.

Hey dudes, I came up with another list.  It’s at 2k for golden throne,

it’s Eldar and Dark Angels






2 Warlocks


2x 20 man guardian squads

2 Bright Lances

3 Jetbikes



10 Warp Spiders


3 War Walkers

Bright Lances or Scatter Lazers, I don’t know yet

Dark Angels:


Level 2 Librarian


10 Tatical Marines

Plasma Gun

Fast Attack:

3 Hyperios



2 AssCannons

Cyclone Missile

Aegis Defence Line


I’m not sold on the Dire Avengers yet, it seems like taking mass

guardians and just humping cover would give you a better scoring unit.

I will put the warlocks in each guardian squad and hope they get

concealment off.  I know LD8 sucks buit if I get it off those guys are

super durable behind the Aegis.  With divination and BS4 I realy like

them as a way to get some extra Bright Lances in the army.  I’m not

sure what I need the War Walkers to do, I think with all the guardians

I have enough anti hordes fire so it might be worth it to get more

Bright Lance shots.  The other alternative would be to drop them and

take a Wraithlord with Bright Lances and use him as a soft

counter-assault.  Lastly I could drop Eldrad to a bike Farseer and the

War Walkers and take a Wraith Knight,  I know Reece likes the Wraith

Knight but it seems to me that I am loosing too much stuff to make

that a good trade.

I allied with the Dark Angels so I can get more skyfire in the army,

for 500pts you can get alot of Hell Drake hate in the army.  I could

do almost the same thing with Codex Marine instead and that would give

me access to Null Zone which might be worth it.

Talk to you kids later.
