News

  • New release: Tzeetch Battletome and Kairic Acolytes! Amazong models.
  • New Eldar! Wow, those look amazing. They also represent a big change in the story of the Eldar as they indicate a big move forward for them. Yncarne, the Avatar of Ynnead, The Visarch, Sward of Ynnead, and Yvarne, Emmisary of Ynnead. They are stunning models.
    • Biel-Tan is the most militarisic of the Craftworlds, and have the most Aspect Warriors. If the next book is the Fracture of Biel-Tan, and Biel-Tan is the Craftworld most seeking the rebirth of the Eldar empire, who knows what that could mean? We’ve been seeing some awesome stuff in the Fall of Cadia with the plot advancing, I assume we can expect more of the same with Eldar. This likely represents a new, more positive path for the Eldar in regards to no longer being the dying race.
    • The Dark Eldar will also join in the battle, rallying behind Vect and Arhra to take the fight to Slaanesh and help Cageroch to bring a new hope to the Eldar.
    • Fall of Cadia fluff recap! Some great stuff in their.
  • LVO Update! We’re almost there.
    • Aaron Lovejoy joins us to talk about the paint and hobby classes at the LVO.
    • Make sure to submit all ITC scores by January 30th. Make sure all personal ITC scores are corrected (if you have any corrections that need to be made) by February 1st. After thta, your score is locked.
    • Be sure to download the BCP ITC App ahead of time and get familiar with it. It will allow you to see player’s lists, get your table pairings, etc. It will be an immesnely helpful tool.
    • We are NOT using the new GW Codex FAQs, just to reiterate. They will be implemented into the ITC FAQ after the LVO.
    • If you are playing in the 40k Champs, bring a copy of your list when you register. The BCP guys are going to be taking a picture of your list as you check in to upload into the ITC app so others can quickly and easily pull it up. This also means your list will be there for the world to see, so be sure to triple check it for accuracy! We have the ITC List Checking Facebook Group to help out with this.
    • Big thanks to everyone that came out and put in hours this weekend helping us get the terrain done. We got a LOT accomplished but the rain slowed us down. If anyone wants to come help during the week, please feel free to and we will feed you for your time!

    I hope you guys will consider differing from the just released FAQ ruling of Imperial Knight firing arcs…

      If enough folks want it, of course.

        Also stomp out of combat for ALLknight armies only, Like 5 knight armies! Won’t make them crazy better, but will help them

      The firing arc seems overly restrictive and certainly not based on how the weapons are modelled.
      I don’t remember seeing it in the draft either.

      I’d be for overruling that one.

    Celestine didn’t actually die, she got close and then greyfax brain blasted abaddon. I don’t even know where the other one would have been.

    Anything on the new missions for 2017 ITC format?
