Old One Eye...Unstoppable Part 1

Sergeant Lemartes and his scouts had been patrolling the eastern edge of the cratered landscape for two weeks.  The blasted, storm-wracked surface of Calth was treacherous enough…their target only added to the tension created by the effort just to survive.  The creature known as “Old One Eye” had been rampaging unchecked for months now, and it had to be destroyed…

The Great Devourer...Soulless Humanity

Humanity wishes to believe that the Tyranid race is soulless, acting without reason or intellect.  To the human race, Tyranids are animalistic predators, and nothing more.  This is hyperbole... the Lords of Terra and their innumerable minions know all too well that it is they, soulless and unreasoning, who prey upon their own kind in order to preserve a dying empire.

New Kill Team Rule Set

The latest version of Kill Team has hit the street and I am happy to see this rule set aligned with 6th edition.  Kill Team offers a great way to get in some “games on a budget” in terms of time.  Playing 4-6 scenarios in 4-5 hours is easily manageable for experienced players.  Here are some thoughts regarding playing this rule set, and how Tyranid players might incorporate it into their gaming.

Commentary - Escalation, 40K & Tyranids Part 2

In the midst of a plethora of Tyranid rumors bubbling up to the surface, I want to stay focused on reality and talk about what Nids can do about Lords of War in the Escalation expansion.  It is not a pretty picture…

Commentary - Escalation, 40K and Tyranids Part 1

For those who ask how Escalation will change the game, I have some thoughts now that I have read through this latest tome.  I am no master prognosticator, but I have played the game long enough to know what effect this will have…

Prometheus Rumor Scoreboard - Final Episode

I got what I deserved for getting emotional about a December release.  I am now 0-1.  Oh well.  Still have another 25 or so rumors to go.  A busy holiday week otherwise.  Built and primed 30 Spinegaunts.  Assembled two plastic Tervigons.  Lots of glue to peel off my hands.  Fun!  By the way, these are before/after pics of two Fexes and a Daemon Dude taking down a Warlord Titan in close combat.  Yeah Baby!
