As I’m working on building up my Chaos Marines army I keep pondering marks. The beauty of the new codex is you can mark damn near anything. Using the right mark on the right unit for the right job can really push a unit from good to great. It can also be used in a way that’s not very point efficient as well. I figured I’d share my thoughts on the various marks.
I’ve been quiet lately because I’ve been doing a lot of thinking with the new Chaos codex. If there’s one area I’m struggling with in the new Chaos codex it’s the HQ choices. There are a lot of good choices and they all have their own merits. As I’m gearing up to build out my Chaos force I have to consider the leaders of my army and I’m just not sure. Where before the HQ choice had little to no impact on your army, that’s all changed.
Hey all! Lukas here, your friendly neighborhood Necron!
Browsed through the new CSM book, beautiful stuff. Especially love the fluff, and some of the thematic lists you can make! 200 Zombies anyone? :D . What really impressed me though, was the combos you can pull off. I’ve always liked list synergy, and deep down we all have a soft spot for gimmicks. But when I saw this, I could taste the cheese.
The final quiz in the 6th edition quiz series. It’s been a lot of work but hopefully you’ve all enjoyed them. I’d like to do a more advanced quiz later on where the questions are situations involving multiple rules and interactions but I need a break first. Keep an eye out though.
This past weekend I managed to get in a lot of painting and knock out a unit of 10 Bloodletters. First up some shots, which aren’t very good. I’ll get better quality ones later when I have time to set up my light box and everything. They do also look better in person. These shots are washing them out. I just wanted to get some quick shots up while they were still on my painting table.
First run with Orks in 6th Edition
It was a busy week and I’ve only managed to finish one more of the lootas. I’ll hold off on pictures until I finish the tenth and (for now) final member of the mob. I did manage to get in my first game with the Orks since the start of 6th edition so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts and what I’ve learned.
Well, we’ve had the new Chaos codex for a bit over a week so I wanted to see what people thought about it. Between the new units, changes to existing units (including force organization alterations), and the general change-up as a whole to the codex, there’s a lot to digest. That being said, I think we’ve all formulated our general idea of the codex.
The interwebz is covered in Chaos Marines articles and this is one for the pile. As I’ve mentioned recently, I’m getting ready for a 40K tournament next month and so I’m focused on that and using the units I have. However, once that is done then it’s time to refocus on what my plan is for my Chaos army. See, I haven’t bought any of the new toys yet. I’m avoiding distractions on the hobby front and new models, though pretty, are distractions. Of course this doesn’t mean that I haven’t thought about what I’d like to do. There’s one direction that I’ve always enjoyed with armies, though none of pulled it off in the manner I was completely happy with, and that’s speed.
A fellow 40K’er from my FLGS has started up a new blog. He’s been blogging on B&C for a long time but finally decided to move himself to a location where he can actually get some exposure. He’s a frequent visitor and commenter here, ShinyRhino.
Last night I played against Dark Angels with my Chaos Marines using a list I’m planning on taking to next month’s big 40K tournament. The list is far from great as I’m using what I own, what I have painted or can paint before the tournament, and working what I can within the comp system for the tournament.
As everyone is well aware, the Chaos codex came out this past Saturday. As excited as I was for it, and am to have it, it creates a problem for me. Next month is my FLGS’ large annual 40K tournament. Last year I couldn’t play Chaos because I was far from having the army completed in terms of painting. This year I can do it but I need to nail down a list ASAP so I can get the needed models painted for it.
