About Me

Hey there, as you can see this is blog is all about gaming. And that's what I've been doing for pretty much all of my life. Currently I'm completely enveloped in Warhammer 40,000 and I'm breaking into the new Warhammer Fantasy system with the release of the new 8th edition.

Follow me as I build new armies, find newer and better ways to destroy my enemy, learn more about the rules, and just complain about the things that don't go my way :)

Psyfleman Dreadnaught

Hi everyone. So with the release of the Grey Knight codex everyone has been raving about the Psyfleman Dreadnaught. What is that you ask, it's a dual Autocannon Dreadnaught with Psyammunition to give you 4 TwinLinked Strength 8 Autocannon Shots at 48 inch range. Yeah, this guy is going to be tearing into some transport vehicles.

I designed the Psyfleman Autocannons for my Dreads a couple of weeks ago, and just received the 3D prints in yesterday. I'm pretty pleased with the way they turned out. Their unique and cost me a little under what it would have cost for the forgeworld ones. And before anyone gives me a hard time about his torso being on backwards, well he's magnetized, I'll turn him around for the painted pictures later.

I've had a couple people ask me about the prints of the Rhino Front Panel. I got that in also but was not very happy w

Are Eldar Still Competitive?

Are Eldar still competitive? Hell yes they are. But not all builds are competitive now a days. Over the past two years I have seen pure mech Eldar become much more difficult to pull off successfully. Eldar transports are just to expensive, and the abundance of Str 8 weapons, IG spam, Space Wolf spam make it fielding Armor 12 vehicles quite difficult.

I've also seen seen the Deathstar JetSeer squads become less and less useful. It is way to easy to tie them up in combat and with no power weapons and no ability to dish out a good number of attacks they start to fall rather flat.

So what can Eldar do really well right now. Str 6 Spam. Yes yes, I know spamming isn't what people like to do, but after str 4 str 6 weapons are the most common in the Eldar army, and not only are they common, they are quite cheap. Scatter Lasers and Warp Spiders should be your friend in all Eldar armies. Not only do the Spiders give you great mobility, but the Scatter Lasers are usually attached to mobile bases also. You mix this with a couple squads of Fire Dragons, a Farseer to Guide Warwalkers and Doom your enemy, and an Autarch to allow you to reserve denial and you're pretty much Golden.

Here's the list I've been running for close to a year now. This list is about putting as much firepower on the board as possible, because when it comes down to my dice rolls, quantity is way better then quality.

All Comer's List

Farseer - 145
Runes Wit, Runes Ward, Stones, Doom, Guide

Autarch - 125
PWeapon, Fusion Gun, MandiBlaster, WarpGenerator

Fire Dragons x7 - 222
Wave Serpent, Stones, TL-SCannon

Fire Dragons x7 - 222
Wave Serpent, Stones, TL-SCannon

Guardian Jetbikes x6 - 205
2x SCannons
Warlock, Embolden, Spear

Guardian Jetbikes x3 - 66

Guardian Jetbikes x3 - 66

Dire Avengers x5 - 60

-=Fast Attack=-
Warp Spiders x6 - 181
Exarch, PowerBlades, Dual Spinners

Warp Spiders x7 - 203
Exarch, PowerBlades, Dual Spinners

Falcon - 175
SLasers, Stones, Holo-fields

War Walkers x3 - 180
2x Slasers

Total - 1850

Give it a try, let me know if it works for you. It's been working for me every game for about a year now.

Cowboy Kenny - Custom Head

So I did this custom head in 3D not to long ago for Cowboy Kenny and ordered a couple extra for tests to see how well they take to painting and the like. I'm pretty happy with the amount of detail that came out of it, and will hopefully be able to see quite a bit more when it's painted :)

Close up shot. He's wearing his Texas Rangers ball cap! Who knew Grey Knights liked the Rangers?

The Alamo GT 2011 - Beginnings

So once again I've gone insane. The Alamo GT down in San Antonio is May 14th and 15th. With finally deciding to go to the tournament only two weeks ago I have decided that I'm also going to break out my old Grey Knights and well make some changes and have them painted up and ready to go in 4 weeks. You can see in the pictures everything that is painted at the moment, using what I had from the Astronomi-Con tournament last year I have greatly expanded on the amount of Knights I'll be fielding. Instead of just the two squads I had last year I'll now have four squads of infantry and I'm going to breaking out the other fun toys such as the Dreadnight and the not so build Stormraven.

With two weeks of school still to go (finals and all) and two free weeks of painting it's going to be a hard rush job to get these done but I'm pretty confident I can do it. Wish me luck and keep an eye out for progress posts.

That's right, bring the bad boys once again. My GM is going to be using a Halberd and I've got a new Justicar with Daemon Hammer.

One of the two Purifier Squads I'll be running. Added a Justicar with Daemon Hammer again... no theme at all happening here. The other purifier squad is in the background.

That's right, plastic minis. Woot! So I got these guys built over the weekend. 2 psycannons and is that Cowboy Kenny holding a daemon hammer? Couldn't be.

My Dreadknight and one of the dreadnaughts I'll be running. I created some custom Autocannon arms for the dread, I'm just waiting for them to come in.

Close up of the big guy himself. I didn't magnetize him at all. I should have, but it turns out he's not really magnet friendly, I'm going to have to do some experimenting with the next one but didn't have time for this round.

So just 3 Rhinos and a Stormraven left to be built. Quite excited about this project, and not stressed out at all so far.

Grey Knight Front Panel

So as a Start to updating my Grey Knight Army I decided to do a little 3d work and make some custom parts for my Rhinos. Here's what the front panel is going to look like. I've sent it off to be printed and should have it in 2 weeks :) Can't wait to see it in my hand.

Grey Knights: Dice Templates

Good Morning! So I've had a couple of requests to get the templates I used for my Grey Knight dice. I've been pretty busy with school for the last well... year. So I'm making it easier for everyone and myself. Here are the templates for the dice that I made. Once you have them made feel free to send me some pictures of them in action. I'd love to see them taking out the evil hordes of chaos!
