100 Power Level Astra Militarum Force Vs Dark Angels – 40K Blog

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...

Update on Shadow War Zone – Warhammer 40K Blog

Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutesIt’s been a while posting about my Shadow War Zone site. Since my last update it’s gone from strength to strength! With over 1,600 users now plus the much requested anonymous ability to create a Kill Team the site shows no sign of slowing. Campaigns are now a thing too. Create a Campaign for your friends to join and from there you can easily see the following stats for each Kill Team: Total points Total “Ranking” points – the total points for a Kill Team when awarding extra points for Fighter stat increases and skills Promethium Caches Wins, Losses and […]...

First 8th Edition Games – A Little Dabble – Warhammer 40K Blog

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...

Hash Tag Excited for 8th Edition – Warhammer 40K Blog

Approximate Reading Time: 3 minutesWell I just got done watching the Warhammer TV Live Stream about 8th Edition and I have come out of the other side of it in one piece and really excited. It seems others were engaged too, at the time of writing the video has 51,000 views. This means two great things happened today; I gave blood for the 4th time 8th Edition has inspired and engaged me I am slightly frustrated that the Fall of Cadia rule book I have is now useless. As are all the codexes I own and Campaign books. This is annoying. But if the new […] The post...

Baneblade – Cadian Shock Library, Book 4

Approximate Reading Time: 2 minutesAnother book is ready for someone out there! I’ve finished Baneblade. This was a slow one. I started it in January. Slow reading skills and lack of time contributed to the length of time this book took. But it’s a great book! It paints the picture of a desert world wit’s extreme dust storms really well, offers some nice insights into Orks and the local Sandscum population. The fighting is infrequent it seemed which was fine by me as the story and the main protagonist were interesting enough to carry me through without the need to constantly be with the...

Airbrushing Cadian Shock Troops – Warhammer 40K Blog

Approximate Reading Time: 7 minutesIn case you missed it I’ve managed to do a lot of airbrushing recently – I say recently, I mean over the last 6 months. Which is good for me! It’s been all camo stripes so far on a variety of vehicles; Taurox, Malcador, Leman Russ, Valkyrie, Vulture, etc. Time for something new; Airbrushing Cadian Shock Troops. But I’ve wanted to try and do more than just camo with it. It’s a bit of an unknown area for me though. I know you can do pre-shading, OLS and I am sure LOADS of other things too – but that’s still a bit of a […] The post...

Emperor’s Wrath Artillery Company Formation, Fail – Big Warhammer 40K Game

Approximate Reading Time: 5 minutesThis is my biggest game ever! Its taken three years to get to this point, although of course a lot of stuff needs painting still but I am getting there! 3,000 points of Astra Militarum vs Dark Angels using The Emperor’s Will mission. But we will focus on a huge mistake on my part with the Emperor’s Wrath Artillery Company. I mainly wanted to write about this battle because I used the Emperor’s Wrath Artillery Company Formation and it failed me terribly. Or rather I failed it terribly. It was, in hind sight, a simple mistake that caused the formation […] The...

Three Years of Blogging – Cadian Shock Wargammer 40K Blog

Approximate Reading Time: 5 minutesAs of today, exactly today, March 22nd 2017 – it has been three years since my first blog post on cadianshock.com – with three years of blogging under my belt its time to take a quick look at where the blog is at today and share some stats! Yay, numbers! Not much hobby I am afraid in this post. It was Cadia’s Creed Blog that first planted the seed in my head about starting my own blog. It was a strange world back then and it was a leap into the unknown. My grasp of 7th Edition was poor I am sure, my models were […] The post...

Guardsmen Melee Blob – My New Preferred Blob Configuration

Approximate Reading Time: 13 minutesYou can’t call the Guardsmen Melee Blob a Deathstar because its capacity to inflict death is not that great. Or is it? So it can be reduced to a simple star. Because it can become the star of a game for sure. This post on Reddit prompted me to write the Guardsmen Melee Blob because I think its worth writing about. Its fun, its effectiveness is unexpected and its fluffy. Guardsmen Melee Blob Composition Well lets get right into it. My most recent success with set up was using the Empyric Storm Cards and here is the Guardsmen Melee Blob was made; A maxed out...
