Hear what Beast of War has to say about 6th ed

Via Beasts of war

The 40K Heretics Rulebook is Real… Only it’s Not!
Yes… you heard that correctly. After a lot of digging and snooping around the inside of the great citadel (or should that be Citadel) that is Games Workshop, we have some very interesting news about the so-called Heretics 40K Rulebook… or the 6th Edition Leak for those with little flair for the dramatic!
It turns out that this is in fact an actual early version of the 6th Edition rules… but not quite. Apparently the Design department were let loose on the 40K system… they were allowed to try anything they fancied… we’re told that nothing was off the table. This “no-holds-barred” version was then edited down with the truly unworkable ideas removed and those that could prove to be exciting or contentious left in to be play-tested… so was born the Heretics 40K Rulebook!
This version was sent to trusted play-testers. Who like all trusted minions… were turned by the

40k stuff that one day you can make at home, kinda.

So Games Workshop is under attack from printers this time, but its a new one, like off Star Trek.

Dark Eldar Update

So, If you have been following the podcast you know I have recently been getting back into from 40k after about a 3 year hiatus (playing Warmachine). Also, you have probably figured out I am playing Dark Eldar from the video battle report and previous posts. Since I have had a few weeks to get some models put together and play games I thought I was about time to reflect.

Desert Rock Bases for Dark Eldar

Ok, so I am way behind on the blog compared to how much I have gotten done on my Dark Eldar. It's time to catch up. In this installment I'm going to show you the bases I made and how I did it. For this project I used non-slotta bases (doesn't really matter if they are if you don't mind an additional step of covering the exposed slot), a mix of fine and medium grit sand, PVA glue, and super sculpey. The sculpey is a clay that you can cook in your oven at home.
