This is a big ask of myself to write about Leman Russ Tactics! OK, it’s only a Leman Russ – how hard can Leman Russ Tactics be? Well, we have the variants. Then each variant could be under orders. Each variant could also be a Tank Commander or Pask. That’s a lot of various stats! Oh and then we have Forgeworld models! And Stratagems will affect their stats also! Catachan models will be slightly different too. Argh! Never miss an article? Subscribe! The last tactics series about Astra Militarum Artillery written by […]

I’ve now got Captain-General Trajann Valoris from Dave and he’s looking great!

Tournament Debrief – Reign of Darkness https://cadianshock.com/tournament-debrief-reign-darkness/ https://cadianshock.com/tournament-debrief-reign-darkness/#respond Tue, 03 Jul 2018 07:59:04 +0000 https://cadianshock.com/?p=5401 The dust has settled after my first event, so its time for a Tournament Debrief. It was small and casual and it was perfect for me. 8 players having three games over the course of a single day. Hats off to Boards and Swords for getting the vibe right. The last event had closer to 20 participants but the holiday season and hot weather possibly kept people away. The tables were superb as well. All different and varied. Never miss an article?

1 Year of MathHammer for 8th Edition Warhammer 40K https://cadianshock.com/1-year-of-mathhammer/ https://cadianshock.com/1-year-of-mathhammer/#respond Thu, 28 Jun 2018 21:49:59 +0000 https://cadianshock.com/?p=5376 It’s been about a year since I bought the domain name for MathHammer. And I thought I’d share some of that journey with you.  100,000 page views! In that year there have been 100,000 page views of the MathHammer web page. Which, is nothing short of amazing, to be honest. Over 40% of that traffic comes from Google – thanks to being number one in Google for various MathHammer and MathHammer 8th Edition terms. The top refereeing website is this blog. Unsurprisingly I plug my own stuff. Haha. Followed by the Bolter and Chainsword forum. Never miss an article? Subscribe! […]
