40k Tactical insight - The Space Marine Tactical Squad


Right, let's sit down and have a good think about things shall we? Last week I wrote about how I was going to go back to first principles with my space marine army, re-learning how they work to improve my performance and win percentage. First up, let's have a look at the primary building block of the space marine army and its various options, the tactical squad. I'm not gonna pretend this isn't a review, but I'm under no illusions that they haven't been reviewed before, this is more for my own edification and learning experience and for you to share in that journey, maybe even learn a few things in the meantime.

Spotlight on Blogging - 30k plus 40k!


Greetings all, and welcome to part two of my spotlight on blogging (splogging?) series. Today we take a look at a blog probably familiar to many of you - 30kplus40k by Rob Hill.

Now I have a particularly soft spot for this blog, as Rob has often said my own blog and discussions with him on the Dark City forum were part of the inspiration for starting his own. Consequently I've been around this blog since its beginning.

40k - the road to competence!

Dave the Imperial Tactician

Greetings all - It must be a New Year, I have all these interesting ideas buzzing round in my head about things I can do with the blog, and this year I'm trying to get my life more in order, so everything is set out with drafts ready to publish at the appropriate time, I've even set up a draft post for my review of the year and am adding to it as I go along so I don't forget stuff!

Still, nevermind all that, here's another new feature for the blog (have you noticed new header pictures for regular features?) and this one relates to tactics!

Kindred of Malebolgia - 2017 plans


Greetings all! Hopefully you've all seen my plan post for the Dusk Knights (linky link) and here's the second installment - the Kindred of Malebolgia.

If you missed it on my blog last year (erm, what do you think you were playing at?) then I'll explain - the Kindred will be my first genuinely new army in a very, very long time, probably since I picked up some Night Lords models in the early-mid noughties.
