Eldar Psyker Cards for Keeping track of your powers (updated with more Warlock options):

There are so many psychic powers available in so many combinations for our units that it can be a pain keeping track of what Psyker has what powers. Therefore, I put together some "Psyker Cards" that anyone can print out and laminate to keep track of who has what powers! Check them out and let me know what you think.

Golden Throne GT here I come!

So I just recently made reservations and plans to attend the Golden Throne GT in Pleasanton CA (an hour east of San Fransisco). This post will cover the tournament itself along with the list I plan on bringing. All feedback is welcome and if anyone lives in Southern CA and wants to help me practice my army feel free to e-mail me!

winds of change part 3: Transitioning Jetbike Eldar into 6th with the new codex

Traditionally, Jetbike Eldar have always been sort of weak on the offense, fragile, but very sneaky and maneuverable. With 6th Edition and the new Codex, a lot has changed in that they are even more maneuverable and became quite resilient while packing quite a punch.

Keeping the Crimson Hunter in the air:

I've been exploring ways to use the Crimson Hunter and while it has a lot of firepower, essentially, it is just such a fragile flyer with AV10 and no way to improve the Jink save. So how can we build our army to make sure the Crimson Hunter keeps hunting throughout the game? Here are some ideas...

Building me some Wraithguard:

So after seeing how awesome Wraithguard can be in a recent tournament (they gave me quite some grief in one of my games as I had to play against a unit), I can't wait to put together a few units to throw down with a classic Iyanden type army in a future tournament. The new models are amazing, though, my OCD is driving me crazy regarding how some of the pieces look. This post will basically cover how the new Wraithguard look, especially compared to the old Wraithgaurd and how one might want to use them in an army.

1500 Eldar battle report:

I just played in a 1500 point tournament with the new eldar and I have to say that I learned a lot of valuable lessons from the new Codex. This post will cover my battle reports of all three games while providing a general overview of lessons and insights that I hope will help every Eldar player who reads this.

An open letter to my Dark Eldar playing friends:

With the changes to 6th, the introduction of a lot of new codices, Dark Eldar can have a sort of tough time these days. This is a sort of open letter to any and all Dark Eldar players with some advice on how to improve your game/list building in an increasingly hostile environment...

Any army list for an upcoming 1500 tournament:

With the new codex out, I see a lot of potential army lists but I am not settled on what a good list will generally look like. Ultimately, we will need to play a lot of games and figure out what works and doesn't work for us as Eldar players so this post is going to explore an army list using our new Vehicles and Flyers.

Winds of change part 2: Transitioning foot Eldar into 6th with the new codex

This is part two of my four part series covering different types of Eldar armies and how they will transition into 6th with the new Codex. This post will cover an Eldar army comprised entirely of models on foot, affectionately called "Footdar."

The rise of Iyanden:

GW debuted their Iyanden suplemental codex today and I have to admit, I've never been so excited to bust out my Wraithguard! The video gave us some insight into how the army will play so I'll discuss that in this post and go on about how I foresee an Iyanden style army to be built/played.
