40k misconceived: WYSIWYG

After my recent lapse into WarmaHordes (which is still ongoing, as it were) I thought I’d reaffirm my allegiance to the Empire of Games and do another rules thingy for 40k.

I’m gonna poke a hole in a very basic assumption.

What you see isn’t always what you get.

WarmaHordes: There's room on this Bandwagon still!

So, Incarias goes WarmaHordes. Who'd a thunk it?

A few weeks ago one of the guys down at the club asked around, to see if anyone actually played Warmachine. A couple of the 'old-timers' (sorry, guys) did, and there's been a couple of games played.

Me, being in sort of a GW lull right now (the inspiration and motivation just don't come as easily as normal) decided to see what the game was all about. Fool me.

Rules Conundrum: The Blood Lance

Time for another Rules Conundrum. There’s been a slight gap in between them, as I rile against FAQ’s and play much too little 40k to stumble on any fun conundrums.

So this one’s been brewing for a while.

The Blood Lance.

FAQ'd Up: Initial rant

Hi. I was planning an elaborate greeting, but fell short. This is all you'll get.

Today’s post will be the second in a new series. The first was my Tyranid FAQ rant, though I didn’t know it at the time. In this series, I will be looking at the complementary documents released by GW: their FAQ’s and Erratas. And Amendments.

Follow-up: Valkyries

So, this is going to be quick.

Apparently, GW has realized there's a problem with Large Oval Flying Bases.

Updated FAQ. Scroll down to page 6.

I will ponder the implications.

Book banter: A Storm of Swords

I’ve said this before, but today’s post will be a bit different from what I normally do. It will have nothing to do with miniature wargaming, rules nitpicking or anything else of what I set out to do with this blog.

It will be about a book.
