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”

Pre-Game Preparation

As I gain more experience gaming I realise that familiarity with the faction you’re playing with is key and that’s why I’ve been spending a lot more time playing Warhammer 40K games with my Novokh army.

Unit Feature: Technomancer

In one of my crazed buying sprees I managed to get a deal where the seller sold me a Technomancer and that’s how this dude came to be in my collection.

Unit Feature: Canoptek Wraiths

I love these guys! They look really menacing and because of the large torsos, painting them was a joy as it allowed me to utilise a lot of red which makes them really stand out on the table top. What’s also cool is the different head options that come with each unit of which myContinue reading “Unit Feature: Canoptek Wraiths”

Pre-Game Tip: Auras & Buffs

As I get more games under my belt; one of the things that I’ve learnt is to consider the types of complementary buffs that you’d like your units to receive from your HQs alongside other abilities that are unique to your chosen faction/sub-faction. In Warhammer 40,000; every army list that you put together requires aContinue reading “Pre-Game Tip: Auras & Buffs”
