Rant Session

Tactics Corner

Review the Third Tyranid Formation

Bioblast Node

Warrior Brood (must have a Bio-Cannon upgrade)

3 Carnifex Broods (each model must have a Bio-Cannon upgrade)



All models have split fire and if within 12″ of the Warriors can re-roll 1’s to wound in shooting phase

Wrecker Node

Warrior Brood (cannot take Bio-Weapons)

3 Carnifex Broods (cannot take Bio-Weapons)

Rampage of Destruction

Carnifexes do 1d3+1 Hammer of Wrath and if within 12″ of the Warriors can re-roll 1’s in the assault phase

Tyrant Node

Hive Tyrant (no wings)

Tyrant Guard Brood (must take 3 Tyrant Guard)

Venomtrhope Brood

Command Node

Hive Tyrant has +6″ to synapse

Subterranean Swarm

Tyrgon Prime



3 Ravenor Broods

All must start in reserve, and come in on a single die roll. Trygon Prime comes first bby Subterranean Assault rules. Then the 3 Ravenor Broods come in within 6″ of the Trygon Prime’s base. As normal cannot move extra or assault, but can shoot and run. The rest of the formation comes in normally via deep strike.

Living Tide

1 Tyrand Node

1 Synaptic Swarm

3 Endless Swarms

1 Wrecker Node

1 Skyblight Swarm

The formation gains Fear.

Synaptic Command Network: As long as the Hive Tyrand from the Tyrant Node Formation is there, all synapse gains 6″

The Swarm Unleashed: As long as the Hive Tyrand from the Tyrant Node Formation is there, all rolls to endless swarm and skyswarm rules can be re-rolled

Rules Lawyer

  • Can you Death or Glory with a Walker or Knight?
    • No, you cannot.
  • What does the community think about a tournament rule that allows units of Chaos Space Marines to purchase ATSKNF at 1 point per model, and every model in the unit must purchase it if one does. Also, changing Champion of Chaos to say you may challenge, not must?

List Review

Hi! I have a neat list idea for Orks with Chaos Space Marine allies, and with the recent Crimson Slaughter supplement, I thought it might be a good chance to give this a try! I call it Gork and Mork’s (Un)holy WAAAGH!


Warboss w/Attack Squig, Mega Armour, Cybork

Warboss w/Attack Squig, Mega Armour, Cybork


8 Lootas

8 Lootas

7 Lootas


18 Choppa Boyz+Nob w/PowerKlaw

18 Choppa Boyz+Nob w/PowerKlaw

30 Shoota Boyz w/2 Big Shootas and Nob w/ Big Choppa

Heavy Support

Battlewagon w/Red Paint Job, Deffrolla

Battlewagon w/Red Paint Job, Deffrolla

Crimson Slaughter Allies


Sorcerer w/Balestar (Divination)


10 Chaos Cultists

Fast Attack


Heavy Support

3 Nurgle Oblits

Each Warboss goes in a Battlewagon with 18 boyz and go kill whatever needs that many powerklaws (Warboss’ Mega Armour comes with a free Powerklaw). The Shoota Boyz that are on foot can either move forward slowly or wait in reserve to take backfield objectives (the cultists will be doing that as well). The Lootas get spread out in cover and target low AV vehicles, flyers, and whatever needs shot. The Heldrake does normal heldrake stuff, and the Sorcerer is there to give the Oblits Divination powers.

    Good show, only thing missing was a loud obnoxious noise from outside

  4. TinBane March 30, 2014 2:41 pm #


    Of course it’s from latin, via french 🙂

    I really appreciate the effort you put in Frankie, putting out podcasts solo! That is one job I wouldn’t want to do, myself!

    • Reecius March 31, 2014 8:55 am #

      Yeah, recording solo isn’t nearly as much fun!

    Well done Frankie! And if you never did the podcast by yourself once in a while, we’d never get such great, golden nuggets like Bio DeLUG!
