Meat for Meta: Respect your elder.

Over at BoLS poster Bigred is retiring his old school IG army. Why would he do such a thing? Well he thinks his old models do not work anymore and he is getting tired of kids telling him that they are not GW. Which I think are two really stupid reasons to retire an army, especially one really rare and awesome. Warhammer 40k is all about history, using those old models represents your passion for the game. You played before their was the Internet, you played before the competitive scene, and you played before you knew how to paint any better. I understand Bigred will for change, but he does not have to completely disregard this entire army. If you look at his original post from 2007, it shows how he has updated the army over time. I really do not see what in 5th edition has made his army unplayable? Just because some units have been changed around does not mean they cannot be incorporated in a new way. His second point of having to tell noobs that his army is really GW is a pussy way out. New players should be looking up to Bigred, I know if I saw that army I would. I would want to know everything I can about that army, when were they made, how old they were, and how long did...

It’s like Tactics: The Introduction

In my travels across the Ocularis Terribus I have come across many wonderful things, from Bubonicus’s world and the dancing human chain to the Unfleshed of Medrengard. In my most recent trip though, I had the great pleasure of encountering a traveling band of Noise Marines. Allowed me to acquire a vast sum of sonic weapons, which I have started amassing an army around. For some background; I come from leading Death Guard, having gone to the Nurgle School for the Blighted, this will be a big change for me. I recently started taking classes in pain by numbers and auditory deafening, in the hopes of mastering the Noise Marines. I have already learned many things about Slanessh’s servants and I hope to pass my knowledge on to anyone that will listen. This will be begin a series in showcasing my adventures in playing the Noise Marines and Marked for Slaanesh. I am looking at a five part series, hoping to bring to life this army and what combinations are effective on the battlefield. Part 1: Overview of Noise Marines. Park 2: Kitting your Noise Marines. Part 3: What goes well with your Noise Marines. Part 4: What to Mark. Part 5: Sample Army Lists Watch Sidekicks movie online Download Lenny Bruce Swear to Tell the Truth movie Street Dreams movie...

Meat for Meta: Bell of Lost Tact

It really should not bug me, but it did. Over at the great Bell of Lost Souls is an Imperial Guard army list, using the new codex on their main page. Now Joe 40k six pack posting this list on a random forum is one thing, on BoLS it is another thing. What bothers me is BoLS is better then that. A whole lot of people have not read the codex, like Australia. BoLS comes off looking elitist. Its the kind of epeen waving that gets you caned in Singapore. The post started a circle jerk on the comments page. It was battle of those in the know and those not. Now you may be thinking I am just butt hurt; I am not one of the cool kids with the new codex. Well I have a copy and read it cover to cover (looks for a cane). Worse, the list posted is sad. JWolf simply got the dex and like a fat girl going on diet, picked five random things on the menu and then ordered a salad. Who the hell would take an allied Daemonhunter Inquisitor when you can get a Psychic Choir?!? At least make everything on the list from the codex. It could be said that JWolf made a list using the figures he had, but using BoLS space just to post a self gratifying...

Its like Tactics: Talos

Rarely seen and rarely used, but oh so killy. The Talos represents the pure essence of Dark Eldar. It is twisted, cruel, and without mercy. A created monstrosity with a shackled soul. As a Kabal leader you must use them wisely. A blunt instrument, the Talos must be pointed in the right direction to bring ruin to the enemy. With 5th ed and FAQs major changes have been made to the Talos. While the Ravager will always be the weapon of choice in the Dark Eldar heavy support arsenal, the Talos must not be over looked. Lets first take a look at it is stat line. [TABLE=2] The first thing that jumps out at you is the points cost. It is cheap! It is the same price as a Wraith Lord, also ten points cheaper then a basic Deamon Prince. Secondly, its Toughness is 7 which makes any str 3 armies mostly useless against it in Assault. Thirdly, D6 attacks, while variable is devastating over time. The Talos’s Weapons and Special Abilities are a throw back to a fluffier era. Talos Sting: Is a 24″ Str 4 AP5 Assault 6 The Talos Sting wildfire ability is archaic with its ability to pick out individual targets as it goes. You must allocate closest to closest models within line of sight of the Talos. Things that the wildfire cannot hurt like...

Meat for Meta: The Imperial Guard Player

You know him, the guy that recorded the History Channel when it was all just WWII documentaries. The guy that for whatever reason just could not get into the military. He is the type of guy that knows every line to Hogan’s Heroes. I know you have met this guy. He will forever be a Imperial Guard player. This IG player started out playing Historical Miniature battles, he realizes you can only play the battle of Armhem so many times. He also has a passion for modeling and painting and gosh darn it those WII figs were not cutting it. So in the early 90s he discoveries this relatively new game called Warhammer 40k. Staring in his face is Marines, Ork, Chaos,  and  Eldar. Must to his chagrin something was wrong about all of them. Marines reminded him of either his strict father or overbearing mother. Orks are just too silly, though he really loves the numbers you could field. Chaos is too evil, he wants to be a hero not the villain. Eldar are sissy space elves. About to turn away he sees something out of the corner of his eye;  something familiar,  something sorta historical. Picking up the box it was not any box it was this box It was 36 little plastic army men. These were not the  gene seeded super soldiers; these could be anyone, these...
