About Me

I am 40K player with a great interest in tactics, innovations, and general competitive table-top playing. I currently have all Imperium armies, including Grey Knights, Space Wolves, Blood Angels, Astra Militarum, Inquisition, and Space Marines (Celestial Lions are my Chapter of choice), but I am quite an avid student of all 40K armies, including Xenos and Chaos armies.

This blog is a place for me to put my 40K thoughts, ideas, and general tactical musings. Hopefully it is helpful to other players, but if nothing else it is an outlet for my “stray voltage” and general Warhammer thinking.

    Just found your blog and have been reading through a lot of your articles. very cool ideas, especially the comparison of DA veterans and Centurions. I am a DA player myself and I am constantly looking for new ideas whether it being Green-, Death- or Ravenwing and Allies. I had several test runs against the new Tau and I am looking forward to see if you got something up your sleeves against them. Clan Raukaan Chapter Maser with Gorgons Chain in a Ravenwing Command Squad would be a start 😉
    Keep up the good work 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words and glad this was interesting/useful to you. I will try and provide some ideas about how to counter Tau, especially with some of the very potent new units/formations they appear to be getting here!

      Would be interested in hearing your experiences/ideas on dealing with Tau as well 😉

        I send you an email and at the moment I am building a Ravenwing/Skyhammer list. Knowing who and what is able to intercept is key but I think this kind of first strike could work. 2 10 man devs with loooots of grav is always good.


        • greysplinter says:

          Sounds like a potent combination, especially with the Ravenwing being able to use their re-rollable Jink saves to absorb enemy fire turn, should you decide to hold off on bringing in the Skyhammer portion of your army until turn 2 for a “beta” strike. I think these also compliment each other well, since RW units are quite fast for seizing objectives, while Skyhammer brings the potent firepower, especially with the Grav devastators, as you mention.

    Just came across your blog and I greatly appreciate your insights! I am a complete noob to 40k and was peer pressured into playing by my friends who are just getting into it. I picked death watch and am building the starter army from death masque and had no idea the amount of strategy and tactics that go into this game. Thank you so much for your death watch posts, I have much to learn!

      Thanks for the kind words and I am glad to hear some of this is useful to you. Look forward to sharing with you and others as we all learn more about playing 40k and enjoying it on competitive and casual levels.
