Weekly Battle Report #5: Wolfstar vs. Tau Broadside Spam, take 2

Hi there folks, it's time for my Weekly Battle Report!  Today we see my Wolfstar facing off against Eric's Broadside spam Tau list, for the second time (he wanted a rematch).  Here's the link to our last battle.  Alright, lets start it up.

Balanced Dark Elf Listhammer

In the interest of doing something different before I start some sort of series of posts again, I figured I'd post my current Dark Elf army.  For those of you who saw the title of this post and thought it was something to do with Dark Eldar, I'm sorry- 40k has Eldar, Fantasy has Elves.  This is about the latter.

A Word on Points Efficiency, in Regards to Feel No Pain

Hey everyone, figured I'd give you something to chew on alongside your Turkey this fine Thanksgiving.  Today's topic is going to be on Feel No Pain as a unit upgrade, and ways to recognize if you're doing things wrong using this tricksy USR.

Defenders of the Adeptus Mechanicus: Part 1

 An Article by C.J. Young

For my first post I have decided to talk about my favorite subject: theme armies! That is the driving factor in 40k for me: building theme armies, but the problem is that most of the armies that catch my attention do not have a codex. So I must admit that I am guilty of the great evil of “counts as” armies.

Weekly Battle Report #4: Wolfstar vs. Chaos Marines

Hey there folks, it's time for the weekly battle report!  This week brings my wolfstar face to face against an optimized Chaos Space Marine list.  Before this game, I had never actually played against Chaos, despite how much I've played my current list.  As a sidenote, very soon I'll have a different army to play as- the wolfstar as it currently is will be played no more.  Lots of updates to my wolves I want to make.

The Rather Important Counter-charge

First, please don't confuse this with the USR Counterattack.  While it's a fun USR, and can sometimes be used as it's own counter-charge, this article is about the old-fashioned 'you just exposed yourself by attacking me, so now I'm charging you back' tactic.  It's a pretty staple concept, and one that takes more than you would think to actually master.

Blood Angels: Rediscovering Efficiency

So, it's been a while since I've even thought much about my Blood Angels army, mostly because I've been painting Dark Elves, Orks, Salamanders, and Wolves as fast as I can, which leaves little room for Blood Angels.  My current Blood Angel list certainly isn't super competitive, with lots of inefficient points spent on inefficient units.  I aim to stop that inefficiency, and make the army as competitive as I can.

Weekly Battle Report #3: Wolfstar vs. Tau Broadside Spam

This week I have another battle report using my Wolfstar Space Wolf list against the local Tau player.  He's got 6 Broadsides, which is a great way to threaten my Wolfstar, with all the S10 available to him.  Will the Tau kick my hiney?  Keep reading to find out.  Or just skip to the end, lol.

Hello Everyone! (New poster)

 Editors note:

Well, I broke down and asked someone else to post here on my blog to fill the empty days.  CJ is a hobby/fluff specialist, though he's won his share of tournaments as well.  I'll let him fill you in on himself, just thought I'd give you a quick rundown of what this random post is about.


Hi Everyone,

My name is C.J. Young and I live in Laramie Wyoming. I have

Weekly Battle Report #2: Wolfstar vs. Khan Double Land Raiders

Hello, and welcome to my 2nd weekly battle report!  I'm trying to give a battle report every week, and though I won't always use the same army, you'll have plenty of battle reports from which to see how my various lists play.  Here's a link to my battle reports page and to my previous week battle report.  The game I played today was against a double Land Raider list with Khan outflanking shenanigans, played by my buddy Vince.
