Warhammer 40000 : 4 Reasons why Imperial Guard need the Greater Good ! (IG review)
Hello everyone !!!
Time to conclude this Psychic Awakening week with: 4 reasons you need the Greater Good with the Astra Militarum ^^
Let see why !
6 new doctrines to choose from when selecting Tempestus unit. The doctrines were already revealed by gw but still, let's take a look at them (one).
Crack shots! hot-shot guns getting +6'' range to 24". That means rapid-fire up to 12" while the Deep strike is more than 9". You can even buff them to rapid-fire 2 with the order. 40 hotshots attack for 10 Tempestus Scions (90pts) and 1 order from a Tempestus Prime.
Note: Tempestus prime gives 2 orders per shooting phases so it's a good idea to drop 2 squads of 10 scions with a prime (230pts) for 80 shots !!!!!!! That some serious Dakka don't you think ?
Currently, Tempestus don't have enough stratagems...That's going to change with some excellent additions
Precision drop: Drop 12 Scions from a Valkyrie without risk and within 5" of the enemy. Neat! Imagine one Valkyrie, up to 12 melta, dropping 5'' from that annoying knight, kaboom !!! (276 pts full kit and wreak a knight costing twice !).
If you bring a Tempestus Prime you also can use Elimination Protocol order to reroll wounds! (Prime can drop behind the scions with normal chutes rules as you just need to be within 6" )
note: Eagle is a good regiment for this strat too with +1 to shoot when disembarking.
Daring Descent: Another drop within 5'' stratagems but reserved to Gorgonnes Regiment and it's only one unit. Still, it's possible to have a patrol Detachment and drop one unit in a hot zone for a double-tap + charge.
Point Blank: New bread and butter stratagem, At half-range, hot shots weapon are strength + 1
Killing Zone: +1 to wounds against one enemy unit that already lost one model this phase. complement perfectly Point Blank Stratagem in a double drop situation.
The drop you should do: Take 20 Tempestus Scions in 2 units (180pts), one Tempetus Prime (40), select Crack Shot doctrine. Drop Double shots both unit with First rank fire. First unit shoot with Point blank stratagem, then second benefit from Killing zone bringing the whole 80 shots to 4+ to wounds against Space Marines
These 4 stratagems are going to change a lot of games for the Tempestus and the Imperial Guard as a whole!
full list :
Iotan Dragon trait is awesome ! remove cover against shooting. Also the trait is used during shooting phase so the timing is perfect for deep strike insertion and double-tap.
A second good option is: Lambdan Lions, reroll 1 withing 6 is perfect for plasma spam & deep strike! (considering that lion Regiment Doctrine is extra -1 ap). It utilises the same plan but this time you optimise the plasma damage as you can't double-tap with las gun. Both squads with 4 plasma guns, warlord grant reroll 1 to hit, order grant rerolls 1 to wounds (or all wounds vs monster and armour), Supercharge shot, for 8 shots with S8 PA -4 dmg 2 per squad (rerolling one on both rolls ! ) should wreck a lot of Primaris squads! (+44 points per squad for the plasma)
note: extra Warlord trait with stratagems. Yes even if your main detachment is Regular Astra Millitarum, you can get a warlord trait for your Tempestus Prime.
5++ aura within 6 for Lambdan lions
Pistol 3 plasma pistol for Iotans Dragons (they get all the good stuff !!)
With all these Tempestus Scions buff this is the book you need.
There so many good combos for them now !!!! Hype to the max!
Back to the canon fooders^^
If you are bored with the 6 regular regiments. The Greater Good presents rules to make a custom one. A list of 12 options, you select 2 as usual. A few choices are very good and open new styles.
Gunnery Experts: The first one has a weird wording, but with it you can re-roll the numbers of shots. While you can reroll only one dice, it' still very good on most 2d6 or 3d6 weapons.
Also, TITANIC keyword is NOT excluded if you don't take them in an auxiliary (why would you). Baneblades have 3d6 shots weapons !!! The Simple but reliable and sturdy Leman Russ can get 2 X 1d6 shot and you can reroll both of them! That's awesome !!
Manticore is 2d6 shot with one dice reroll. Always rerolling the lower roll bring a 52% to have 9 shots ! and chance of having less than 4 shot are less than 5%. Manticore is S10 ap2 1d3 Dmg (only 4 shots per battle)
A Basilic already rolls 2 dices and keep the best, but if you can reroll the lowest it's a great stability fix.
Disciplined shooter is awesome too, plasma double taping from 18" after moving is serious stuff ^^
Jurry rigged is a nice auto repair is you plan to spam Tanks
Wilderness survivor is free cover save to all infantry...it's a good combo with Disciplined shooter as you just want to walk+shoot. It's quite good with bodies spam + Plasma gun!
rest is ok, check the list if you want.
Why giving a Warlord trait to a puny human when your tank can get a 2+ save ? Instead of a Warlord trait, you can choose a Tank ace.
3 lists: one for Leman Russ, one for missiles and Artillerie support and one useless for SuperHeavy
Leman Russ list is awesome, you need this Up-armoured commander! In the end, except steel commander and Armoured Rush, the other four are good choices!
Support Aces: 2 abilities increase damage output and this is what you need. If you already have the reroll on the number of shot from the Doctrine, you can take DMG3 on a manticore !! if not, well stocked magazine is a good traits
Super Heavy : hmm nope ..sorry.
If you want an extra Tank Ace use this Stratagem :
Do you need more Tanks Stratagem? Psychic Awakening got you covered.
Like all Stratagems in the Psychic awakening series, you get a menu of specialised Stratagems. Strongs but limited in scopes to affect only one unit and of a certain type.
the ones worth your time are: Relentless, Direct Onslaught, experienced eyes, hail of fire, Focused Bombardement.
Relentless help when your Leman Russ is nearly terminated, and you need it at full capacity!
Direct Onslaught is great for the Manticore combo for 2D6 shots with reroll, hitting on 3+ with Damage 3 with aces support and strength 10
Experienced eyes : extra 1 AP for plasma spam by Veteran, very good with the 18" double table doctrine.
Hail of fire : 2cp is expensive but if you need the max number of shots on both shot that' good !
Focused bombardment: affect the Master of Ordnance and as you have one anyway it can be usefull!
That's it. Here are your 4 reasons why you need greater good !!
I am a big fan of the new Tempestus Options, also it look like the Manticore are viable now (but i am biased i love the model !!)
More Slave Ogryns
Howdy guys and girls :)
Some more chonky boys - confirmed to be plastic! Can't wait to get my hands on the kit (and also use it to convert some gang specific ogryns!).
Warhammer 40000 Animated : Empire, Chaos and Heresy !
Hello everyone !!
A few week back GW revealed the teaser of Angels of Death . Today more info come our ways !
Helmed by the talented creatives who make up the Storyforge team, this new endeavour promises to be a treat for fans of the Dark Millennium. Word on the street is the first episode is penned by none other than Andy Smillie, the Black Library author who has left a blood-spattered trail of Flesh Tearers fiction in his wake. Sure, it might be an animation, but if the tidbits we’ve heard so far are anything to go by, you can expect all the visceral action* that is the hallmark of Warhammer 40,000!
Name is not official yet.
From what i know they want to do something like "Love, Death and Robot" for 40k...If you don't know what that is check the trailer here :
it's Animated Short for mature audience made by netflix and produced by and miller Fincher...some stories are very good some other are ok-ish. The Yogurt overlord is simply genius ^^
Now back to GW! It's a good idea to get inspired by Netflix, but I am afraid the budgets are not going to be even comparable ^^ So maybe they do it with old school drawing instead of CGI
Still it's always good news to see the Franchise expand!
House of Chains : Ogryns Gangs for Necromunda !!
Hello everyone !!!
House of Chains is a Must Buy in the end...
Even if you don't play Goliath, you want this book. Ogryn Gangs are inside and their models are AWESOME !!! The amount of possibilities is immense.
Ogryn gang have few models but Ogryns have some serious stats !!
he rules for fielding a Slave Ogryn gang can be found in House of Chains, which is available to pre-order from Saturday, and the ‘Jotunn’ H-Grade Servitor Ogryns miniatures will be released later this year. In the meantime, grab a Palanite Subjugator Patrol so that you’re ready to put down those dissident Ogryns.
Models not ready ?? fuck !!!
Age Of Sigmar : Kharadron And TZEENTCH small update
Hello everyone !!
Small but important update for Tzeentch and Kharadron!
The Destiny Dice used during a morale test count as unmodified. That means you can use a 1 from a Destiny dice on a Pink Horror unit morale test including an Icon Bearer. Yes you pass and gain 1d6 Pink Horrors !!
Disciples of Tzeentch was already very strong but now you get a perfect way to recycle those 1 ^^
can you start the game in garrison?
Q: When I set up a Skyvessel before the battle begins, can I
set up units in its garrison?
A: If the unit is part of the same battalion as the
Skyvessel, it can be set up as part of the Skyvessel’s
garrison at the same time the Skyvessel is set up.
If the unit is not part of the same battalion as the Skyvessel,
the Skyvessel must be set up first, and the unit can be
added to its garrison when you are allowed to set up that
unit before the battle begins.
1) So if you are from the same Battalion you can start the game in garrison and you deploy everything at the same time as usual with Warscroll Battalion!
2) If you are not from the Same battalion, you can start the game in garrison if the vessel was already deployed.
Necromunda : House of Chains preview and 2020 Road map
Hello everyone !!!
Next weekend House of chains goes on pre-order. It's a 160 pages, new sort of book for Necromunda. Close to a Warhammer 40000 army codex. The book includes all the present Goliath house rules, New types of fighters. Lot's of customisation rules and options and a very large fluff section.
Accompanying the Houses of Chain release are Plastics models for new profile provided by the book. Resins models made by Forge Worlds for alliance options.
Lastly, We also learn the 4 Houses codexes are being released this year.
This is a real Goliath Codex with everything you expect to find inside a Warhammer 40000 codex.
Lovely artwork !! I'll hope we will learn new info on the Goliath and their place in the Hive Primus ecosystem.
New Plastic Models are also coming with the codex. Goliath get at least 2 new fighters: Forge Born (prospect) and Stimmer (Champion)
Models were already revealed some time ago. IMO, They look cool but the painting makes them a bit bland.
They are upgraded Juvies with +1T and +2CI and use specific weapons like the Storm Welder
Not a fan of Forge Born getting specific ranged weapons, why ganger can't use them ? or Champion? It feels artificial ...
The second new fighter is the STIMMER, a Goliath specific Champion. They look gigantics on the pics and get a STIM PACK rule named Combat Chems Stash. Use it to Increase their numbers of attack (+1d3 attacks but on a roll of 1 it's a bad reaction and you make only one attack)
If House of Chains is a new codex, it's expected to have quite the number of extra rules to convince player buying it ^^ To be fair it looks well furnished and that should do the trick (at least with me ^^) :
Goliath gets a New specific hanger-on. "The pit trainer" , Train your Fighters between battles, but at a risk! on a 2+ it's fine you get a new random skill for the battle but on a 1 the fighter miss the battle and get a lasting wound :(...
Exploring the birth of Goliath, we learn babies are usually growth in Vat but you also get the option to Upgrade them to Natural birth or Outsider. Vatborn, Natborn and Unborn fighters can all take different Gene-smithed upgrades that increase both their characteristics and credit cost.
ie: Take Dermal Hardening for a Vatborn and give him +1 Toughness !!!!
Wow starting with T5 is big! I am excited to try all these options !!
Another novelty is a Goliath Specific Skill list: MUSCLE! As you expect it's a specific set of skill reserved to the Goliath gang that focus on being a moutain of muscle ^^
Goliath gangs can ally with the Slave Guild or Greim noble house. If you chose Slave Guild you get access to new models !! Available are: Chain Lord, Shaklemen and Pit Fighters
Wow, amazing models !! the Chain lord is very very cool. The spirit of Blanche is strong in this one ^^
So yes, it's another series of book that you need/want to buy. Off course it's sucks if you started in Season 1 and have already everything. But right now you "only" need the Rules book and the book of gangs to play (i mean in term of books not all the other stuff like models and scenery) It's not that much when you think about it.
This year it's 4 codexes specific book. One for each House, so you don't need all of them. I hope, what happens if all the Houses can ally with Slaver guild? Or Noble house Greim ?
Also don't expect them to compile all codex into one, each House book is 160 pages.
4 Books are coming, I would have prefered the 6 main houses done in a shorter time but heh it's Forge Worlds ^^. If each release is like House of Chains it's going to be a good year. Plastics models as main fighters, Resins models as /allied/Noblehouse and a bunch of rules to customise the gangs.
They didn't reveal any Spyrer info, but in the preview article, the Goliath have the option to ally the Noble house Greim or the Slaver guild. Maybe house Greim add a spryer option?
I am fed up recently with the Book Spam in GW games. But the direction took by Necromunda this year, make sense. One codex and plenty of new models each time, I just hope that between each codex we are not getting an extra book with some random rules...
What is your take on this Necromunda Roadmap? Happy or not ?

Age of Sigmar : The Lumineth , Vanari Auralan Wardens
Hello everyone !!!
New info on the Lumineth :
- Lumineth Archer are the Auralan Sentinels
- Mage units are expected and should "Bombard" with spell !
Auralan Wardens are the mainstay of the Lumineth battleline.
Each of the Auralan Wardens carries a short sword strapped to their backs. Though not designed to be their primary weapons, these blades would be drawn for self-defence should an enemy get inside their reach.
