Getting Started with TCGs

If you’re an old hand at Trading Card Games, then this post isn’t for you; BUT if you haven’t given the likes of Magic the Gathering or Pokemon a try then you’ve tuned in to the right place. I got into Flesh and Blood somewhere in January 2022; which is a fairly new entrant inContinue reading “Getting Started with TCGs”

Gaming Tip: Armour Penetration

In order to get enemy units off the table, strategically one of the things you can do is to employ weapons that have high Armour Penetration which would make it harder for your opponent to make saves against wounds. This of course gets negated if the enemy unit has Invulnerable Saves but it should workContinue reading “Gaming Tip: Armour Penetration”

Gaming Tip: Unit Selection

One of the fun things about the hobby is adding units to your army; for those who aren’t really into the the minutiea of the game then go ahead and add whatever looks good to your collection but as I am learning; if you want to be able to win some games then you’ll haveContinue reading “Gaming Tip: Unit Selection”

Gaming Tip: Invulnerable Saves

As I get more Warhammer 40K under my belt, I realise one of the more useful abilities for a melee-based army is to have an ability or equipment that confers Invulnerable saves is crucial. The weakness of a melee based army is that they are largely unable to shoot and your goal is to getContinue reading “Gaming Tip: Invulnerable Saves”

Unit Feature: Necron Lychguards

True to the theme of my army, I built up a squad of 5 Lychguards to engage enemies in melee plus these guys function as bodyguards Noble HQ units such as the Necron Lord and Necron Overlord. Lychguards can be built 2 different ways: Warscythe – this makes them more deadly in melee with aContinue reading “Unit Feature: Necron Lychguards”

Hobbying Tip: Sub-Assemblies

What is a Sub-Assembly? A sub-assembly basically is collection of components that have been assembled into larger sections without glueing the entire model fully. The video below whilst a little on the extreme side demonstrates what sub-assemblies are. Why Use Sub-Assemblies? The reason why one would do so is ease further work on the modelContinue reading “Hobbying Tip: Sub-Assemblies”

The Blood Angels

The Blood Angels are a favourite of many Warhammer 40K fans out there largely because of their noble backstory and the bright red power armour they wear in battle. In my face-offs so far with Edward, on the tabletop, Blood Angels are fearsome in melee and if you couple them with jump packs to helpContinue reading “The Blood Angels”

Knowing Your Opponent

After being devastated by Blood Angels in 2 consecutive games I figure it’s actually a good idea to do some research about any opponent prior to playing. I’m gonna check Wahapedia next time before I play Edward’s Blood Angels again. Some light research about your enemies always helps. I think… One thing to note aboutContinue reading “Knowing Your Opponent”
