I’m far from done my Chaos army in terms of collecting (is anyone ever truly done collecting?), but it’s built up enough at this point that I feel comfortable exploring allies. So, I figured I’d explore the options a bit here.
This past Saturday was a 1,500 40K tournament at my FLGS. It was a food drive and so you brought in canned goods and non-perishables to get in-game abilities like re-rolls, +1 strength, etc. I played Disciples of Twilight, my Chaos Marines, using this list: http://cmdctr.net/lists/disciples-of-twilight-1500-mech/. Last week I explained the idea behind the list.
It’s that wonderful autumn-winter Season here in the High Desert of Reno/Sparks, Nevada – the cool windy center of WOLFBROTHER Territory. Many of our brothers attack the snow covered mountains of the High Sierra with sadistic glee. Some lick their wounds from the last brutal local tournament and prepare for the next, and others get ready for the last murdermake of 2012 down the mountains into California. The great chill of winter is almost set in, and everyone has big plans for the great 40k off season.
Saturday was my FLGS’ monthly tournament for 40K. It was 1,750 and here’s the list I brought along. In my earlier practices I realized that my troop selection was too small and I wanted to bulk that out. Often the problem with the current Chaos codex, in order to do that I had to pull/reduce from somewhere else, namely my heavy support and also my HQs. From my previous play testing though I didn’t think it would hinder me much at all.
Welcome to 6th, where you will find all your tanks riddled with gauss and warriors playing poker planetside until rudely beamed onto a game winning objective. Hurray for fliers! But really folks, you may remember my brief experiment with the 5th edition scarab farm (it was just a phase, I’ve since learned), I find myself at a similar viewpoint with Night Scythes.
Saturday was the qualifier for Feast of Blades in my area and I attended with my Space Marines. By the time I had arrived there were only 7 tickets sold for the event but a bunch of people made it last-minute, quite literally, and we ended up having 11 players.
Well damn. If Codex Necrons was designed for 6th, I see a lot more rage directed at me. Specifically the “our most basic gun can kill your most advanced tank. In *Three-Four* shots. This is fair and legal.” Welcome back to fourth? I never played it, but I foresee bitching.
This Saturday is a 2K tournament at my FLGS and so on Wednesday I got in a practice game. I wanted to play against Necrons to help get more familiar with them as I tend to draw, if I’m lucky, but mostly I lose to them.
Saturday a friend and I went to a team tournament, it was 1750 points per player. Yes, you read that right. Per player, meaning 3500 point teams, 3500 vs 3500. The games were long, but really bad-ass and fun. It was overall a really enjoyable day and I’m glad we went.
So, in the new Necron Codex they mention a really badass character, Rakzan. The sole remaining survivor of the Khansu Dynasty. Part of this article is directly from the book (as it establishes his ‘preface’), but this is mostly my own expansion of the Prince’s story.
Hi everyone, here with the third portion of my Necron play style. This week I was going to focus more on how to dish out all that damage, or how to handle the nasty assault units you’ll come across these days.
First up, let’s review the previous poll’s results when Necrons had been out for a short bit.
Hey all, Lukas here again with the second installment of my Newcron tactics. Since the broad overview was covered in the previous article, I figured I could go into more detail with my preferred units or ones I believe could be good replacements.
