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...

Meat for Meta: Can I have Ponies with my Warhammer?

So one day I was traipsing through the forest of forums and I came across something unusual, something so cute and adorable I just had to have one…wait no I had to adopt one. Cute little Daemon Adoptables!!!So I quickly hurried to get myself my very own androgynous Slaanesh daemon baby. All of sudden I had to stop myself, I vaguely remembered my niece talking about something called PonyIsland. Now what the hell is PonyIsland you say, well it is a place where you can raise your very own Ponies online. Now not any Ponies I am talking these ponies. At which point I threw up a little, you know the kind that sits at the top of your throat then slides down.  I was about to My Little Pony part of my 40k experience! To this I said HELL to the N.O. I am not going to Tamagotchi up my postings with a little 5 bit pixels. My game is called “Warhammer 40,000” not “Look at my little daemon grow”. It is a game with the tagline “In the Dark Future there is only War”, there is no adoption in 40k,  let alone this kind of adoption! Oh, more insidious still other people help me grow it and some are rarer then others! Just thinking about it I got a Pokemon Ball ready to shove it where Tzeentch cannot even find it. I call on...
