Since 8th edition dropped recently I've played a fair few games of 40k with my modest space marines army. Space Marine Razorback tanks are a very good points value in 8th and it'd be nice to have a few to put in my lists. Going back a few years ago I started scratch building a few tanks but never got around to finishing any of them. The pics below were taken 4 years ago when I first started the project. I used foamcore as the skeleton for the basic shapes needed and thin plastic sheet will cover the entire models to give it a nice finish. To get started first the two sides for each tank were...
I often start writing this type of article and think “this isn’t worth it, everyone will know this”. In fact that happens a lot when I write any 40K Tactics or 40K List articles. But there is always someone out there that won’t of thought of this. 40K is seeing an influx of new blood and old blood coming back. Which is great! (I base that thought on the number of new people joining Twitter and Reddit as hobbyists.) So here goes, 12 Command Points in a 1,000 point Astra Militarum list. Another reason for doing this now is that […] The post...
More Carnage My enthusiasm for 40K continues apace (but Necromunda is looming on the horizon so who knows) so I'm trying to maintain momentum by playing as much as possible. This week was Aaron's turn to feel the sting of lasgun fire upon his armoured Tau warriors. My first game of the new 40K was against Aaron and that went pretty well so I was hoping for more of the same. We've both had a couple more games and presumably as the games didn't kill us, they made...
Jeff from the Chapter Approved 40K Podcast invited me onto the show sometime ago and finally last week we managed to sync calendars and have our chat!

Jeff hasn’t played many games so I tried to bring him up to speed on some of (what I think are) the best changes. But we both […] The post...
So I've kinda wanted to do a traitor guard army since reading Gaunt's Ghosts. The idea of something like the blood pact or the sons of sek is pretty appealling I was also inspired a bit by my buddy Fred who had a superb Lost and the Damned army when the Eye of Terror campaign rules were valid. Anyhow, I crafted a wee but of fluff some time ago to explain one of the models that came with the Dark Vengeance set. Specifically, the cultist champion who was kitted out in commisar garb. It's here, if you want to peruse it:...
Greetings and salutations. In an effort to continually improve the look of my armies, I've been excited about the idea of adding a splash of color to my Dark Eldar flyers. I had the brilliant idea of using stencils to apply iconography to the wings and I was super excited when I saw a box of airbrush templates from Testors at my local Michaels. I plopped down the $24.00 and rushed home to give 'em a go. First things first. When I opened the box I was pretty disappointed. There were six sheets of plastic with parchment seperators in a roll in the box. No instructions, no best pracices, no...
