Stage Managing the Apocalypse: Mega Battles in 9th Edition

Hi All,Recently I organized my club’s first apocalypse battle in 9th edition. As we get started I must note that we elected to use the 9th ed rule set (although somewhat modified) rather then the specific Apocalypse rules. The following is a synopsis of the event, alongside my reflections on what worked well and what […]

If more terrain is the answer…What is the Question?

One of the most common refrains since the release of 9th edition has been: You need more terrain. This has been emphasized due to the increase killing power visible across the board, and the smaller board sizes making it harder to stay out of range. Indeed, with the release of the Ad-Mech book a lack […]

Performing With an Underperforming Codex

As long as the game of 40k has existed there has been the discussion of how how balanced the game actually is. Some will argue the game just needs a little nudge in the right direction, while others will say that the game is broken and can barely be considered a competitive game. The game […]

The King is Back?

When the Silent King first came out with the Necrons new Codex he was a staple in many army lists. In a meta where only Space Marines and Necrons had 9th Edition books the Silent King’s 450 point price tag seemed expensive, but Necron players got a lot for this heavy points investment. As more […]

Command Protocols: Not Great but Not Worthless

When the Necron Codex was first released the idea of Command Protocols seemed like a very innovative way to give out small buffs to your entire army. With some prior planning a savvy Necron player could ensure that these buffs happened during the correct Battle Round giving them a slight boost in melee power, shooting, […]

The Ork codex was quite well crafted, though some of the mechanics felt incomplete, let’s see how this book compares. Army RulesWhere the Orks had the interesting and complex contest […]
