Battle Summary (Sisters of Battle vs Blood Angels, Astra Militarum and Knights)

A few weeks ago, I got another game in with my Sisters of Battle. This time, it was against the same Blood Angels player whom I had fought a year or so ago in an Apocalypse game. I am never one to turn down a rematch, and so we agreed to a 2000 point game to test out the new bolter beta rules that had been printed in White Dwarf.

Battle Report #7: Into the Breach- Sisters of Battle vs Orks

The skies above Dontoria Hivesprawl had been smothered in a blanket of thick smog for as long as anyone could remember. Biochemical effluent, manufactoria burnout, industrial exhalations and the smoke of thousands of unsanctioned sump-fires had long ago created a noxious shroud of yellow-brown pollution that settled like a second skin over the centuries, staining buildings and streets alike in yellow corrosion, seeping into ground, water and people’s lungs alike, and smothering away the sky and blotted out all natural light like a damp rag guttering out a candle. Entire generations of hive-crawlers had lived and died under the this blanket of smog, and in this way, the citizens of the Big Fug were oddly blessed, for they were shielded from the madness of the Cicatrix Maledictum in a way that the other hive-continents of Vigilus weren’t.

On this day, though, the drab brown sky was punctuated by fierce streaks of yellow as Ork warplanes and missiles streaked overhead.

Sisters of Battle Beta Codex Review

(Artist unknown)

As promised in my previous post, I’ve written a review of the new Sisters of Battle Beta Codex, including my thoughts on its new rules and gear, and how I see this affecting my own army moving forward. Note that in this review, I may be omitting a few things here and there: primarily, I will be focusing on new things in the book that are either of significant importance, or affect me/my army the most. That being said, I will try to be as in depth in my analysis as possible.

Prepare for the beta…

So, this is just a footnote to let everyone know that I recently got my grubby paws on Chapter Approved 2018, and the Sisters of Battle beta codex contained therein. Expect a thorough review of the beta codex and my not-too-humble opinions on it sometime soonish. In the meantime, all I can say is, I’m going to have to seriously rethink parts of my army. The next year or so of playtesting is going to be interesting indeed…

Mini-Batreps: My Fiendish Adventures in Kill Team

So, recently I have started getting into Kill Team as an alternative to mainstream 40k. This is due to a number of reasons, the primary one being time: my schedule on weekdays is too tight to get a proper 40k game in, and I would much rather not carry my army case with me to and from the office on the TTC. Kill Team, on the other hand, is on so small a scale that I can easily carry a force (or two) with me in my backpack. My leanings towards Kill Team have been further reinforced by the fact that (1) my local game stores have been really getting into it lately, and (2) my girlfriend has expressed an interest in starting a Necron Kill Team.
