Converting Plague Marines from Dark Vengeance Chosen: Simple and Cheap

TJ here from Dark Future Games and tonight I want to talk about converting those Dark Vengeance Chosen that you swore you would do something with into something actually useful for your Chaos army and since GW hasn't made plastic ones, I want to make some Plague Marines out of my Dark Vengeance Chaos Marines. I puposefully stuck to a minimum of 3rd party bits and Green Stuff work because I wanted to show you how easy this can be and encourage a little bit of conversion out there, since I know everybody and their mother have these models on their shelf somewhere. Let's take a look at the squad I made.

Fast Mover Tactica - How I Use My Athena

by Novus

I know the overall meta for Dropzone Commander generally eschews the use of Fast Movers (FMs) in tournament play, but I think an FM, or two, can be essential to winning.

Tutorial: Sculpting Green Stuff Chains

TJ here with a tutorial on making 3D Green Stuff chains from Dark Future Games. This tutorial was created by DFG author and sculptor Chris Vinton, but I cleaned it up and posted it here to get it out there in hopes that it helps others!

Emulating Shaltnanigans - Part the Second

The Scourge Leviathan!

Last week I attended the EndGame Dropzone Commander Campaign, LEVIATHAN!  As its economy is based on Intel, I had high hopes of being able to put some of the theories I put forward on collecting Intel and Objectives in DzC to the test (see Emulating Shaltari Shenanigans... Sort Of). Luckily, both missions I was part of focused on collecting I/O.  Although the first was a rural map, I was able to adapt somewhat successfully.

Broodlord Conversion

Guest Post by Waaagh! Gear

Hello from Japan! During my latest trip to Tokyo I found a Workshop to plunder in the Nakano. After some uming and arrhing I ignored the new crater scenery, the Space Wolves codex and the three book rule set and went for the Deathstorm box set. For 16000 yen I was pleased with the value. It contained a box worth of Genestealers, three 'Nid warriors, a Carnifex, five jump pack SMs, five Terminators, a Furioso Dreadnought and two unique models as well as the mini rule book. This seems like an excellent bundle with plenty of savings overall.

Dreadclaw from a Drop Pod Conversion Revised

TJ AKA Old School Terminator here from Dark Future Games to talk about converting Dreadclaws for your Chaos or you 30k army using just a single drop pod kit (technically less than the whole kit). I really dig the fact that using units like the Dreadclaw is becoming more widely accepted. Playing with these units shouldn't break a player's budget and it also shouldn't force them to resort to using the dreaded Pepsi Bottle Proxy. I want to revisit this tutorial, brush up the explanations and help distribute it to a whole other generation of players. Let's take a look.

Emulating Shaltari Shenanigans... Sort Of

by Novus (with great input by Chris Loomis)

I consistently get my PHR ass handed to me by Shaltari because of their speed, particularly on Objective (or Intel/Objective) based missions.  Meta is that you should go for killing the gates, but if you're playing a smart player that may not be possible.  So, I've been thinking on ways to emulate their Shaltnanigans.  A couple of days ago something my gaming buddy, Chris Loomis, said crystalized my thinking.
