So the biggest news for me personally this week is Death Guard πŸ™‚

My word they are sexy and for those that have seen me squirming on Twitter I love me some Nurgle and the possibility to get some models and get converting is going to be hard to resist!!

Then we had all the rumours about 8th edition 40K from Adeticon. The grumpyness on the various groups on FB has been strong VERY strong but I am approaching the new edition with hope. Hope, that they at least go partly down the AoS route as dam the game is fun. Should it be played seriously competitive possibly not but the games I have played have been great.

So what has caused the madness, well I am going to give my 2pence worth for those that care…

Movement Stat is back – I welcome this, a number instead of multiple rules in my mind is much much easier!

Generals Handbook is coming – Makes sense they like to keep a link between the games (no jokes about sigmarines) and the AoS version was well received.

Armour Save modifiers – This I like very much like Rend, but also adds to the randomness of the game that GW like. As every so often a Guard will manage to save against a Lascannon as it hits his lucky dog tags πŸ˜‰

Combat Phase – Chargers strike first makes sense to me they have the momentum of the charge behind them. Obvisouly power fists may see some tweaks to adjust or Eldar/Genestealers get a boost of some description.

Morale – Now like bravery in AoS or Fearless rules, I like this as it sort of makes sense. You lose combat capabilities as you lose men but each man is still the same. In the 40K universe is anyone really going to run away unless it is a tactical option?

Now in isolation some of these things are going to be nuts with the current rules but come on we all sort of know much will change. I hopefully expect the same as in AoS rules become free and so will all the models stats. As we have Warscrolls/Datasheets now and for me they work really really well..

Games This Week

Only half a game this week due to timings but did manage to get the masons on the board, it was very odd going back to a classic S1 build of a team. Did enjoy it and there is plenty that Honour can bring to the table. More games needed before I become even remotely comfortable with the blue boys and girls.

Hobby This Week

So couple of cool pieces of news this week, the Relic Knights KS is funded with oodles of free shit added to it!! Like 100s of dollars worth of stuff.

Next we have news that the UK finally has a distributor for CMON again which means Dark Age is going to have a supply line again. This is amazing news like super duper news. Especially with the new boxes instead of blister boxes that have been shown off for Forsaken and soon to see for other factions. The future is looking dark πŸ˜€

We also got to see the Farmers Guild in the wild which was pretty cool. The pre-built models I will admit is still a hang up of mine and don’t get me started on the brown they picked I hope that isn’t the final colour πŸ™‚ The models themselves look pretty good although the big guy is an odd pose, but that could well be camera angles! Be interesting to see how they play and don’t forget you have a chance to win a team before any else with WAAC –Β waac-ing the crops

Finally Dwarves, Flying Dwarves, Flying Steampunk Dwarves.. Well these are certainly different compared to what has come before not just in WFB but in AoS in general. Very different and very cool!! The airship looks like it could be a bugger to transport but pretty cool still, while the units are nice but it is the jump pack dwarves that have me excited they look amazing!

Question is how bigger a drop are they going to be? from what I have seen it looks like 2/3 airship types, 3 maybe 4 units and some characters so about on par with the Fyreslayers and the Slyvaneth. Suppose the question is when will we see the dispossessed dwarves or are they just classic dwarves now really? And is it all about the mini-factions now that are done in 1 or 2 drops, and maybe a round-up book in 12 months or so. Like the Stormcast that in theory you could say have had 3 sub factions combined and more to come I am sure as they open more of the chambers.
