Oh, No. After You... Guest post by Jordan from There Is Only War

GSI is proud to present this excellent guest post by Jordan from the blog There Is Only War.  He makes some great points about the advantages of going second in 40k.  Turns out number two isn't so bad after all.

Basic Airbrush Troubleshooting


This last weekend I ran into some trouble with my airbrush so I shot it.  The trouble, not the airbrush.  If you run into problems, this is the process I’d go through to track them:

Plague Marines – Part the Second

Group Shot 5 
I just finished my second squad of Ye Olde Plague Marines.  This group is a kit bash of a standard CSM box and a WFB Zombies box, both of which I got with my soft-score winnings from the Bay Area Open (Thanks again, Dan!).  BTW, I really like the GW Plaguer sculpts, but absolutely hate Failcast.  But that’s been covered elsewhere on the interwebs, I’m sure.

Dreadclaw Scratchbuild WIP, Part Deux… files included!

Low Angle

Well, the plasticard cutting part of my Dreadclaw build is done so I thought it about time to post the files and the progress.  It’s not an expertly done job by any means, but it gets the point across.  As a first effort I think I’ve done OK, so far.

Three Way

One of Keno's damaged Rhinos.
John and Keno and I played an odd three player Kill Point game on Wednesday because we were the only 3 guys at Frontline that had armies handy.  We made up the deployment and seizing rules as we went along.  Turned out to be pretty fun.  We figured the guy in the middle was screwed so we let him deploy last and go first.  The screwed guy ended up being John.  Keno won second.  I got last.

Why Terrain Is Stupid

Large Tourney Tables
A typical tournament table set up.

Ok, now that I have your attention I’d like to point out something I’ve noticed in 40k that sort of annoys me: Terrain is a non-issue for most players/armies during a game.  I say this because there are never any extreme or limiting cases of terrain… rarely does a player have to think about what terrain might occur in the next game.  Terrain seems to be so uniform from table-to-table and tournament-to-tournament that no one ever has to say to themselves “I normally wouldn’t take this jump infantry but if there is a cliff or a river, at least I can get passed it and capture the objective.”
