Mantis warriors, HO!!

By TheGraveMind

So right when I'm about to give up on my Mantis warriors and Make them something else, Forgeworld releases a cool little PDF that expands Chapter tactics for tons of chapters outside of the book. Mostly badab war, but still very cool. Because not every kid is like their parent.

See them here!
This means the marines I was about to repurpose from my MW to other armies might be claimed again.

So I have part of a Mantis warrior army, part of a Dark angel successor chapter, and a Night lords army in the works. grrrr, too many marines for a xeno player like me.

Never tell me the Odds

By TheGraveMind

People at work have been making fun of me being on the calculator so much. I'm always running numbers, adding up lists and figuring out the odds. I often run the probability of doing damage from unit to unit. It helps give a good idea how much fire power on average you'll need to take another unit down. Here I'll run through a few scenarios to give a little step by step.

Revisiting the old big kid on the street.

By TheGravemind

I managed to get a game in against a buddy of mine who has been trying to get his draigo-wing back into a competitive viable army. Now back in the day, GK and especially Draigo-wing was the bane of both my armies at the time. Nids and BA did not like high initiative force weapons with a good amount of shooting. But now I'm learning to play with my Tau, and I don't fear the paladins as much... or so I thought.
