Feast of Blades - Alan Bajramovic

I will start off by saying I am not the best writer so I will be as descriptive as possible but straight to the point at the same time. 

Feast of Blades is a class A run tournament and the staff (except for the video game guy) are awesome. I think they have a good event growing and they have a lot of room to make it even better.

The rumor mill has begun!  The Imperial Guard are on schedule to be released sometime early next year.  Here is what we know thus far from BoLS:

 These rumors come to us in multiple sets, and we have ordered them from most trustworthy to least based on a variety of "truthifying methods":

The Probable stuff:
IG Veterans/Stormtroopers (plastic 5-man box)
Artillery combo-kit
Roughriders (new plastic box)

The Possible stuff:
IG Regiment Doctrines: Each Regiment (Cadian, Catachan, etc...)has doctrines, similar to SM Chapter tactics. Examples listed were:
Cadians - may issue 2 orders to a unit
Catachans - Move-thru-cover, and Jungle Fighter (???)

Thunderbolt flyer: Very heavy armor, but cannot jink.

The Salt-mine
Imperial Robots - 2 new robots, requiring an Admech handler/enginseer.

Knight Paladin - Taller than riptide, not as tall as Wraithknight. Vanquisher cannon and Uber-chainsword are standard load out. May upgrade to Punisher Cannon, Uber-Fist with Inferno Flamers 

The Knight Paladin would be interesting to see on the tabletop.  Regiment Doctrines would follow the norm with 6th Edition.  I'm sure we will start to see more regarding everyone's favorite "Expendables"...

Forge World Tau Ripetide Variant

Forge World has released the first Riptide variant, and it will be available for the first time at Games Day UK.  Expect to see this at tournament that allow Forge World units. Is it possible to see 5 Ripetides on a table top?  I hope not, but I digress.  This is a great looking very big model and for approximately $111.00 U.S. dollars it's a bargain compared to Wraithknight.

From Forge World:

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be previewing some of the models that will be available at Games Day UK, the first of which is the Tau XV107 R’Varna Battlesuit. A development of the Riptide, the R’Varna sacrifices mobility for heavier armour and increased firepower in the form of two pulse submunition cannon.

The XV107 R’Varna, designed by Daren Parrwood, is a multi-part resin and plastic kit. We will have stock of this new kit at the Forge World stand at Games Day UK on Sunday September 29th at the Birmingham NIA. If you would like to purchase a ticket for this event, click here.

Please note that we cannot take reservation orders for this model as stock numbers will be limited.

That's cute!

Keep your eyes out for this beauty, because they are going to sell very fast!

There has always been a codex on the scene that is considered the top dog. Blood Angels in 3rd, Eldar, Necrons, and Chaos in 4th, Grey Knights in 5th, and the birth of Tau Eldar in 6th.

The Marines are coming, the Marines are coming!!!

Here we have the release dates!   The prices are in euros and the list is written in German.  We knew about the Space Marine bonanza, however, it seems that we will have some new paint spray cans available in (Mephiston, Caliban, The Fang colors) We will see the Space Marine variant supplements, Apoc. formations, single models, Chapter specific paint collections, and if I am translating it correctly a Centurion formation!  If one finds all of this a little underwhelming, you can always one click your entire Chapter for approximately 10,000 Euros!!! You heard right, all of this for 10K Euros!

The Horus Heresy series will be releasing a couple of new books on September 21!  Enjoy it guys and I hope we have enough in our saving accounts?  These are going to break us, I think?
