Dark Angels

An Ultramarines battle report. Victory against Dark Angels on the fields of Brimstone Games on Jul 22, 2017.

ITC practice match vs James went pretty... fun? It was who could see a tiny sliver of the other persons unit to get a good shot off. Many a razorback went down and lots of CP's re rolled into ones.

I realized that having only 6 drops wont help much with going first since it only gives...

Approximate Reading Time: 11 minutesAnother day and another mission allied with the Tau. I say allied, I mean we fought on the same side. Today I have a debrief of how the new Ambush Mission in the 8th edition rule book played out between Astra Militarum & Tau versus Dark Angels & Harlequins. Never miss an article? Subscribe! We played 1,000 points per force. 2,000 points total per side. Quick side note: I have changed the headings in my blog’s content.I have made them all bigger and created a greater contrast between the sizes. Does it help? Did you notice?

Approximate Reading Time: 16 minutesWelcome to my fist 8th Edition Battle Report! It was 100 power level against Dark Angels.

Approximate Reading Time: 3 minutesI have my very first 100 Power Level Astra Militarum list for you today to read, review and comment on. Its about 1,900 points under the 8th edition points system. Hats off to BattleScribe because moving to 8th edition has been easy! 8th edition on BattleScribe is really good so far, it works and you can easily see the power level of a list alongside the points of a list. I am unsure if others will do this and my group is still getting the grasp of 8th edition. But we decided on 100 power level, then discussed the points that […] The post...

Crazy game. Thought I was done after the first turn destruction caused by the dark angles. But, with some command point usage in clutch situations (think 5 deathwing assault terminators charging in), as well as regaining 3 wounds from the apothecary, the 13th Primarch managed to slaughter his...

Approximate Reading Time: 7 minutesWell its nearly here! And I have managed to play my first 8th Edition Games. Three small (ish) games using the leaked rules and all the bits and pieces that Games Workshop has been feeding us over the last few months. So far I am impressed, but with some slight concerns. This article is about my experiences and what I took from these games – rather than a breakdown of how the new Guard works. There is a 99% chance I’ll say something here that is wrong. If I do, please let me know in the comments! Speed The speed […] The post...
