Review: Officio Assassinorum Dataslate

I've been playing 40k more or less since the days of second edition. One of the things I remember very fondly from those days was the fluff for the various assassins as well as the rules for them. Who doesn't remember being a total jerk having your Callidus assassin replace someone's super upgraded squad leader? The look on someone's face when you told them that exarch was now your assassin was priceless. Yes it was mean, but second edition was a beast of a different color. So today I'm going to talk about the latest version of our deadly assassin friends and what you can expect from the dataslate.

Rumor: Grey Knights

Rumor Grey Knights
 Our friends over at Faeit 212 latest post is all about Grey Knights being the next codex to be released. Some of us thought that Dark Eldar would get the next codex release but Games Workshop and their infinite wisdom could be releasing another power armor marine unit first. And really if they did who would be surprised?

Logan Grimnar on Stormrider

Pre-order excitement as Games Workshop just put out Logan Grimnar on Stormrider. This isn't a Fine Cast Resin (fine crap) model but a solid plastic model. This is a modelers delight to have this in plastic and not resin. The model is released on it's own or from the looks of it in a few other non discounted bundles.

Unit Review: Plague Marines

Plague Marine
Plague Marines are one of the most prized units in the whole Chaos Space Marine codex. They are tough and they can deal a lot of damage as well. This Unit Review will go over how to use this unit effectively and how to handle them if you are going against them.

Playing Plague Marines, starts with either taking them as scoring or non-scoring units. There are two ways to go about making these guys scoring, first Typhus and he is very expensive, the second and cheaper choice is a Chaos Lord with the Mark of Nurgle. Either way you are getting Plague Marines as scoring units. As scoring units this gives you the ability to take objectives and of course contest them easily. What makes them so good at scoring or contesting an objective? Few factors there one is Fearless, these guys aren't breaking and running away when they lose a few buddies. Toughness 5 is preventing Strength 8 weapons from doubling you out, might ask why does that matter? Because Plague Marines get Feel No Pain, and these reasons are why they are arguably the best unit in the CSM codex.
