Is there such a thing as to much Warhammer?

NO! There is no such thing as to much warhammer. Warhammer is the only game that I have ever played that I have not gotten sick of in two to three weeks. (Except for Mass Effect 3 but im sure I will get sick of that eventually.....I think) Here is a picture of my work station. There is about over 250 warhammer models on the table  I have more waiting to be built but because of the holiday I have been putting in extra hours at work so haven't had time to put them together. At times I feel a little overwhelmed at the amount of work I have left, but I do this because I enjoy it not because I have to in order to play with Igloo or Dragonauthor. Screw those guys my models are my real friends. Im Just messing I am not some pathetic weirdo who sleeps with his models at night (They are in the same room that I sleep in but minor detail). Im sure Stormtrooper can relate im pretty sure he has more Warhammer projects then me and all of them look epic. Hopefully in the future he can get some pics of them on the blog. Overall if you are creative, have a good imagination, like working with your hands, and hanging out with friends I don't think you could possibly get tired of Warhammer.  WAAAAAAGH! Blood For The BLOOD GOD! Our numbers is legion, our name is death, and im not sure what the Black Templar say so.......WAAAAGH!


Warhammer magic vs new warhammer 40k psychics

Well, I've been doing some looking around, and I've found a lot of mixed feelings about the new 40k psychic stuff. Some people are ecstatic about the change to be more like fantasy, whereas others say the magic is the reason they didn't do fantasy, and instead did 40k in the first place. I fall under the first group. Being a fantasy high elf player, I love magic, and I love winning... Mostly magic though. So when I heard my tyranids were gonna be getting something close to my high elf's magic, I leapt for joy. Seeing as there are quite a few different psykers I can take (some even as troops) I expect to be dealing a good bit of punishment during the psychic phase, or if it's just part of the shooting, the shooting phase. One thing I am unsure about though. Do you get all powers in the discipline, or do you roll for them? Answer me in the comments guys. Remember, everyone here at Warhammer, Life, and Soda loves you!
For Asuryan!

Orks and Daemons

I really like playing close combat armies like Ork and Daemons. They make Warhammer 40k so much more enjoyable for everyone. I have heard multiple rumors that 6th edition is making some changes to close combat which might make Orks and Daemons more powerful and fun to play. I really hope because sadly I have never won a single game with daemons. I have had a lot of fun but after awhile you get sick of tau and space marines shooting down everything you have.  Anyways I have really high hopes for 6th Edition.

However I have just gotten a Ork truck and a Battlewagon for my Ork army once i get them built and painted they will be one the blog if anyone is interested. Can't wait to use the Battlewagon cause i plan on running into alot of stuff with the deff rolla. After i get about 80-100 more ork boyz, maybe two more ork trucks, and one more Battlewagon I think my Ork army is gonna be ready to kick some space marine but!  

The best thing about sixth addition will be......

Ever since reading the Forge World book The Doom of Mymeara, I've wanted to do a 2x2 for gamesday representing both the Spacewolves and Cadian armies that defended the planet.  I hope the new allies rules in sixth edition will pave the way for this.
I've had a few Cadian models sitting around for a while now and am tempted to make a run at converting them to resemble those on Mymeara.
And of course I already have my spacewolves...I wonder if anyone else will try to capitalize on this new rule in time for gamesday?

Rumors about 6th Edittion

I have been reading some rumors and 6th edition leeks and it sounds like 6th edition is going to be awesome. Since what I have read are just leeks please do not take them to be the actual rules we won't know that until 6th edition comes out.

It looks like vehicles are going to be moving a min of 12in and not 6in. This makes since because I am pretty sure a Land Raider moves faster than regular infantry at normal speed. Vehicles are also going to have something similar to a wound value called Haul Points (HP) basically whenever a tank is glanced or penetrated the vehicle loses a HP. When all the HP is gone the vehicle blows up. This is not replacing the damage table. every time you pin or glance you still have to roll for the damage table as normal. HP just decrease the times your vehicle can get shot at. Which makes them weeker not stronger. There has been changes to the damage table 1 and 2 is shaken, 3 is stunned, 4 is weapon destroyed, 5 is immobilized, 6 is explodes.

Now rapid fire weapons can be fired their full range when they move, and can fire two shots at half their normal range. Which is good news to Dark eldar and Necron players!

Heavy weapons can be fired  while moving but at BS1

The distance a unit can assault is 2D6

Monstrous creatures that can fly can choose to fly above the battle field and swoop down and attack other units without assaulting or getting assaulted. This stays in play until they get shot down when the creature is shot down it takes a S9 Hit from hitting the ground.

Close combat weapons now have AP Which means power weapons might be a thing of the past. This is gonna make space marine terminators harder to kill.

Also i think there is now a way you can do multiple close combats in one assualt phase not completely sure though. This is most of what I have heard so far. I only posted stuff that i felt like came from reliable sources

Nom nom nom!

So I was looking at some of the new psychic stuff... And I gotta say, it sounds kind of awesome... One more week for all of you guys! Unfortunately, it's two for me before I'll know everything. Alas! That is life. What do you guys like best about what you know regarding the new psychic stuff? Do you like or dislike the move for it to be more like fantasy?

Sixth Edition available for advance order

Yes, I am excited... I cannot wait to get my hands on this new rulebook! Hm, lucky for me (technically) my girlfriend will be gone next week so I don't have to worry about upsetting her when my mind is soaked with warhammer....

With that being said... I think Davich and I are gonna try to do a battle report tomorrow... Maybe to have some fun I'll play Dragon's Tyranids :D

Some Hopes for 6th Edition

6th edition is coming out and hope Games Workshop made some good changes. Like this thing that your unit only has to be 50% in cover to get a save? I know its a game but come on! Guys out in the open should not get a cover save. Also I hope there is more options like being able to blow up whole buildings and such things.  I am very curious to see how my 4th edition Black Templar army fares in the 6th edition rules. So I am challenging Dragonauthor to a Black Templar vs Tyranid and a Necron vs Tyranid Battle. Hopefully in the future we will get Battle Reports up for both fights.   
I found this picture of the Black Templar Emperor's Champion with a big bug behind him which means it's squishing time.

Sixth edition

Well everybody, I'm excited for tomorrow! Who's excited with me? Because tomorrow marks when 5th edition is no more, and 6th edition's rule book will be out unless than a week! I'm excited to learn the new rules and all. Someone said they thought it'd be more like fantasy. I personally am excited about that, because I'm loving fantasy so far. (Ask Davich about how much good 400 points can do) Well, that's really all I have to talk about. When I get back from my trip, I'm hoping to do a bat rep with either Igloo, Davich, or Stormtrooper using sixth edition rules. So look forward to it guys, and post in the comments what you want it to be! (Can't guarantee it'll be who's asked due to... Well, you guys understand.) Until later, may the stars be your guide, and may Asuryan smile upon your die rolls, and may you only roll low on characteristic tests! Dragonauthor, signing out!

Forge World Ork Mek Boss Buzzbog

 I haven't painted him yet because I have over 100 other orks to paint right now but I wanted to show him anyways. He comes with 2 Grot Oilers which are just decoration models that follow him around.

These are no Ordaniary Orks these are Nobz

For those of you who got the title your awesome.  In all seriousness Nobz are not your regular ork they are freaken awesome orks. I have about 20 of them in my new ork army and can't wait to kill some 'umans with them. Here are some pics of the models I have painted

Forge World Command Set

Forge World introduces new Space Marine commander and standard bearer! Igloo's SM army sure would look good being lead by these!

Gather up the Snotlings boys!

I have almost completed my Big Mek HQ for Zone Mortalis. Since I am borrowing Mrs Stormtrooper's orks, I have to keep with her purple theme. I have two units that still need to be completed so they are probably only getting a table ready paint job. I can't wait to wreck havoc with the shock attack gun, as ZM rules minimize the large blast templates scatter and allows rerolls for fail to wound.

Necron C'tan Shard of the Nightbringer

 One of my coolest and best models the C'tan Shard of the Nightbringer. This guy has killed 2 Dreadnights and sent the 3rd one running for an epic win. I won't lie though I have used him wrong before and got owned, but a very useful model because he makes all difficult terrain dangerous and all dangerous terrain test failed on a 2 and 1. Makes him the ideal piece for Cities of Death and Zone Mortalis.   
I didn't like the little blade that he came with and it was always falling off anyways so Drak gave me a tyrnaid arm to use.

Necron: Vargard Obyron

 Vargard Obyron is my Favorite Overlord because he has the highest WS of all Necrons and he turns all enemy missed hits in close combat into attacks for him to use that close combat phase. This makes him a good Tyrinad and Ork mulcher because of how many attacks they get and miss because of a low weapon skill. Also he looks freakin awesome because he is like come and get it puny living creatures death has come.

Assualt Black Templar Terminators and Chaplin

Here is my Favorite Space Marine model for my Black Templars the Chaplin. He is my favorite because he kicks butt and he does it in style by looking so awesome. If you play Black Templars I think every army should have a Chaplin because he is the only model that can give people holy relics which gives all Black Templar models within 2D6 an extra attack in their next assault phase that turn. Also He automatically passes all Righteous Zeal Test that means you can never run away from being shot at. With Igloo's help I was able to paint my second Terminator unit and they look way better than the other ones.

These Black Templar Assault Terminators are awesome because they have furious charge and 3 attacks because of the Lighting Claws (4 on the charge or close enough to a Relic if the unit has both 5 attacks) Because of the vow Accept Any Challenge No Matter the Odds they get to re-roll all failed to hits and because of Lighting Claws they get to re-roll all failed to wound as well. If used correctly these terminators can even kill Grey Knight Paladins or a mess of Tyrinads within one assault phase.

Playtesting Zone Mortalis

It has begun. Dragon and Stormtrooper are playtesting Zone Mortalis with the pieces that Stormtrooper made as I am writing these words. These pieces look awesome right now, I am so excited to play this tournament we're going to do.


Well if you haven't seen by now GW released a teaser trailer for Sixth edition of 40k. Or at least that's what I assume it to be, I mean what else could it be?

I'm excited :D. I hope sixth edition will be awesome, and I can't wait to play it

Well, signing out..

P.S. In the middle of this post I found a spilled bottle of Charadon Granite :(....

Why an Old Codex Does Not Suck

When I first started playing Warhammer 40k I was told not to get an army with an old codex because they suck. So I picked Necrons because I herd they had a new codex coming out soon. Later some one told me to play against tau because they would be easy cause of the old codex. Now I have a hatred for Tau because I have had my but kicked 3 times in a row. I have also seen Grey Knight (arguably the most overpowered army) get wiped off the table by Orks.


Just because a codex is old does not mean its not good. A Old codex is harder to use however. For example Black Templar have the oldest codex in the game right now. To be successful with this army I have to understand how this army should be played.  Black Templar are mainly a close combat space marine army. If i try and turn them into a shooting army I am not going to do well. In Warhammer 40k the codex doesn't suck. The way you play the codex sucks. In order to understand how your army is played you have to study your codex by reading it a lot. You can also search the internet to find out how other people play that army and use their tactics to make your own. In order to win any battle you must understand your own strengths and weaknesses and your enemies strengths and weaknesses. Using an old codex has its strengths and if used properly it can kick but. Also The most important thing is to have fun. If you don't enjoying playing as your army then you probably should play a different one weather it is a new codex or old.

Davich: Forge World Daemon Prince!!

This is my first model from Forge World and I am extremely happy. I love the way it looks and the size of the model. It is almost as tall as my soul grinder. the only thing i wish it has is wings which i might try and add later using Games Workshop Bitzs. I am just going to enjoy it right now and let my friends enjoy killing it. 

Zone Mortalis and a Happy Ork

Well and the terrain is started. To the left is the start of something awesome. Stormtrooper put this together last night and I think it's looking awesome!

Here is a looted wagon that Stormtrooper also made awhile back. Again, freaking awesome. I would say that Ork is happy, wouldn't you? :D

Blood for the blood god! (Zone Mortalis)

All right guys, so this is my plan. I talked with Igloo, and since he plans on using his tau instead of his space marines, I got an idea, and asked him. "Could I use your space marines as chaos space marines?" He, being awesome( <-- Why have I never heard that in person? >.> -Igloo), said yes.  And so, without further ado, what I plan on my list being: (note, this is subject to change)
HQ: Don't know yet. If I'm lucky, Davich's Demon prince, mark of Tzeentch, bolt of change, gift of chaos : 185
Troops: 10 Khorne Berzerkers, skull champion, power weapon, plasma pistol, melta bomb 2 plasma pistols: 290
Aspiring Sorcer, 8 thousand suns: gift of chaos 274
Total: 749

Now guys, keep in mind, these will be proxied, sooooo yeah.
And on the note of my high elves, I wanted to post everything I had, b/c I saw that its not on here anywhere. So I have:
The Island of blood mage that I use as an Archmage
A dragon (To be used with any of its riders, b/c I have a model for each)
A prince on Griffon
10 sword masters
15 lothern sea guard
5 ellryion reavers which I use as Dragon Princes
Some Pheonix guard that are not built yet, and in fact haven't even arrived yet :P
And a repeater bolt thrower.
 If you guys want, I can try to get pictures up of them later.
