Upcoming ITC Events

Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  •  Sanguinary Guard can go up to 10 models per unit and will be getting a bit cheaper and gain Furious Charge.
  • DC and DC Dread apparently down to WS4, loses Fleet, gets 6 attacks on the charge. DC apparently 20ppm, +5 for the jump pack.
  • New BA Termie kit that makes Honor Guard and normal Termies with new looking weapons like over-sized chainfists and souped up Stormbolters and Assault Cannons.

Rant Session

  •  There was a rumor about the Endtimes in Fantasy occurring in 40k with Primarchs returning, the Emperor finally dying, etc. It was all baloney and something taken the wrong way said by Graham McNeil.

Tactics Corner

  •  Kranon’s Helguard Formation looks pretty decent. The formation is specifically a Chaos Lord, a unit of Chosen, a unit of Terminators, a unit of Raptors, a Land Raider, a Helbrute, and two units of Chaos Cultists. For taking this formation, the units gain the Fear and Stubborn Special Rules. Additionally they have a rule, Swarm of Phantasms, which forces enemy units within 12″ of a unit to suffer -1 to their leadership. If two or more units from the formation are within 12″, the enemy unit also suffers -1 to their Ballistic Skill.

    Man, I just saw the Gaming Mayhem videos about the BTP issue. Glad you guys offered to help. The lack of communication, the failed deadlines, and then the poorly written reply emails was just to much for me. What really sucks is the fact that he gives up dealing with BTP, I have been in those situations when trying to get something resolved in other matters, and giving up after the 3rd or 4th failed attempt, I really felt for him on that

    Loving the Night Haunter model! I’ve come around to the lightning claw blades, somehow they look more menacing and cruel. Also, he has short blades on his fingertips.

    Like all the primarchs though, you need a top paint job to show the model off and make it look it’s best.

      Yeah, if you can’t paint this thing well, or have a way to get it painted well, it really won’t shine the way it should.

        What’s FLG’s top tier? Tier 3?
        Pretty sure you need one for the “studio” army, Reece, to show what your boys can do 😛

          My Night Lords looks really good, I just never play them because the rules are so awful.

          And out top level for single models is level 4, it’s pretty outstanding.

          • TinBane December 7, 2014 5:37 pm

            What level are the space wolves?
            And which artist did it? I really like the bronzework on the dreadnough (venerable?).

            Hey man, there are always the 30k Legion Rules ;D

        When Sevatar gets released, I’m definitely going to order him and the Night Haunter, and get them painted up. I don’t think I’d have the nerve to do the model justice though, and I REALLY need to work on my skills painting faces. I reckon A night haunter with a badly painted face would ruin the effect!

    Ferrus is still my favorit! – I’m hoping to by one and have the studio do it up for me pretty some point. I feel if I’m going to spend that much money on a single model, I should have someone with more artistic integrity/ability paint it.

    .. the Kurze figure is amazing though – even if I feel he’s reprehensible as a Primarch..heh..

    Also – props on what you guys are doing for that Chaos Dwarf Army. I don’t want to weigh in on anything else other than you guys continue to be good for the community, and helping people out.
