    The reason I want to do artillery is cause that is in general how I want to play my IG. I never heard of the list until it won TSHFT. I always wanted to run artillery, but all IG artillery is in the Heavy support slot, meaning at most 3. Not how I want to play.
    But hearing about this gave me hope. So im kinda happy now lol

      Yeah, rock it! Death Korps can pack in tons of artillery, too. And, Quad Guns are elites choices for regular IG, too.

    You guys seem to get a lot of army lists for review. Why not simply skip the badly formatted ones and move on to the ones that are written clearly? You have the same rant almost every show haha ; p

    • Reecius January 25, 2016 8:45 pm #

      Haha, but that would be like, totally more efficient! =P

    Alright, I gotta let this out. How is it everyone still talks about Tzeenth Demonkin as if that were something that could actualy happen? I just don’t understand it, I’ve seen the things GW likes for so many years and that’s just not what they do. They do Khorne. And then they do more Khorne. And maybe some Nurgle, but probably more Khorne. Here are just a few things GW are more likely to release than Tzeenth Demonkin:
    Khorne: Berserkers, the Codex of just one unit of shitty Chaos marines
    Khorne: Bloodkin the blooddudes ( the book trying to sell their ton of new Khorne fantasy dudes to 40k players)
    Khorne Demonkin Second Edition
    Khorne Demonkin Third Edition
    Nurgle Demonkin
    New Codex Space Marines (Not Chaos Space Marines, normal ones. You can’t re release that book often enough)
    Khorne Demonkin Disco Inferno: Demons in the 70s
    Codex Sisters of Battle.. okay just kidding with that one.

      Lol, funny post but we think that because we keep hearing rumors that it will be done. Time will tell.

      • abusepuppy January 27, 2016 7:51 pm #

        Let’s be fair: we’ve also been hearing rumors of plastic Sisters of Battle since, what, 4th Edition? And that mysterious Tyranid update that will finally fix things that has been pushed back once a month for a year now. Etc, etc.

        Rumors are only as good as the source, and a lot of the sources are garbage.

        • Reecius January 27, 2016 8:04 pm #

          True, but I think this one has some legs as the Space Wolf campaign will feature Tzeentch.
