We went all in to 7th

Here are a few photos from our last tournament Going all in to 7th Tournament. We want to thank everyone for coming to the event and participating, a thank you to our host Recess Games. We saw quite a few different armies, first place was a mix of Eldar and Dark Eldar, second place was a mix of Grey Knights and Eldar, and rounding out third place was an Imperial Knight and Deamon list. And almost every model was nicely painted.

Warhammer 40,000 Tactics For Using An All Imperial Knight Army

So if you're anything like me perhaps you've wondered what it would be like to run a pure knight list. Maybe you like the fluff, maybe you really like big giant robots, or maybe you really just don't like messing around with things like multiple detachments/allies/formations etc (all of those apply to myself). I'm going to go over each of the knights you can currently use, their strengths, their weaknesses, and how to best use them as a total army. This by no means will guarantee you victory but hopefully it will give you some food for thought.

Battle Report Chaos vs Space Marines and Imperials Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse

Today I am bringing you a battle report of monstrous proportions. We finally had our apoc game this weekend. It was imperials vs chaos. As you can see from the pictures the imperials had to hold a fort. The chaos guys could only win if they controlled 2/3 of the 3 sections of the fort. There were 90 victory points available to take, 45 of which were available to whomever held 2/3 of the fort.

In the pictures you will notice 1 imperator titan, and 2 warlord titans. They were on the chaos side. The armies combined for a total of those titans, 7 or 8 reaver titans, 10ish warhound titans, 20+ baneblade chassis of various types, 9 imperial knights, 20+ flyers of various types, well over 200 additional vehicles between tanks, dreadnoughts, skimmers, transports etc, and 1,000's of infantry. I played personally in this game for approximately 24 hours between Saturday and Sunday. The game was started on Friday which I did not play in. So my guess is this game went for between 30 and 35 hours.

Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw

Sanctus Reach: Stromclaw
The email came in last night for the preorder of the latest box set for the Sanctus Reach campaigns. Games Workshop's latest model release is the box set called Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw. Even before the release of the latest 7th Edition rules Games Workshop has been on a releasing rampage of models both old and new.

With Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw we see a change in what Games Workshop is releasing, this isn't just a starter set, this a campaign (well, a partial one) in a box. When Games Workshop releases a starter set we normally see two 500 or so point armies, that are not optimal and that are not balanced, and of course you get a small rule book. And most players buy and split the models, for their respective armies. Here Sanctus Reach: Stormclaw goes all in with a part of a campaign, the units are set the missions are outlined in a 32 page campaign book included. Now since this is on preorder we haven't had the opportunity to see how balanced everything is nor do we have the opportunity to review the models (expect to see that in the future). The price point for this box set is great at $125 (USD), we don't expect this to last we expect this to go up in time.
