Conversion Crazy - Old One Eye, Autofex & Quad Cannon

Finished some Tyranid conversions this past week; two for game use and one for just fun (unless my opponents are really open minded…you’ll see).  Here is a description of each…

New Tyranid Codex - Positive Changes

“Mr. Sunshine” here again…as some of the blog’s followers have started to call me.  Good for them, and timely since this installment is going to be a summary/commentary on the positive changes that we have in our new dex.  Lets’ get right to it...

New Tyranid Codex - Tyranids Psychic Powers, Better Known As "They're In My Head!"

Here we go again…the guy who actually thinks this codex is playable!  I have two games under my belt; 1 win 1 loss.  The loss was because I took a totally inappropriate army; I was expecting mech and got assault of the worst kind…Blood Angels with Wolf allies…yeesh!  Even then, was pretty close at the end.  You CAN win with this dex.  Learn it.  Play it.  Adapt.  It’s what Tyranids do!

New Tyranid Codex - First Impressions

Let’s start this post by stating that I am pleased with the new codex.  Remember, I am approaching this as someone who is moving on from the past.  We can either lay on the floor, kicking and screaming, or face reality and understand that these are our rules.  However, I am not going Pollyanna here, and there are some things I am disappointed did not happen.  But this disappointment is not based on changes from the last dex…it is based on missed opportunities.

Cometh The Hive Fleet

Saturday seems like a year away!  Only four days to go before the arrival of the Hive Fleet, and this last week before touchdown has been frantic.  This will be my last blog post before “Codex Day,” so I wanted to discuss my latest modeling accomplishments and ruminate about moving on…

This post is for one purpose only…to thank each one of you who has visited, and continue to visit, The Shadow of Prometheus.  Today, eight months after kickoff, the blog had it’s 10,000th page view!!! YOU are the reason!  Ironically, this has occurred the same week that the new Tyranid dex is due to hit the street…wow!

Old One Eye...Unstoppable Part 2

Lemartes and his scout headed toward what appeared, on their auspex, to be the remains of a land convoy.  Once closer, they could see the burnt out remains of transport crawlers and couple of surplus Chimeras, heavily modified to handle civilian duties. Strangely, there was no sign of bodies...
