Well the 5th edition of the Warhammer 40K basic rule book has run its course to the point of 6th edition rumors. Yet it seems only recently that some basic 5th ed. trends are making their way to the table top.

Every once in a while real life and 40K life run smack into each other. Like the first time your new girlfriend finds out you play with toys, or your coworkers find out your skipping work to travel and play with toys. The results can be anything from mundane to the extreme. This is one such story.

Sometimes a line of thought veers way off course, into something far more philosophical. This is one of those times... STOP QUITTING!

So, I was talking to a good buddy the other day and he brought up something that I thought was spot on. What he said he was realizing is that at some point you have to choose what to sacrifice: Competing at top tables or fluff lists.

A while back I got this idea, a wonderful, crazy idea. This idea consisted of me buying a Phantom Titan and using it as the centerpiece for the Feast of Blades Narrative campaign.

Live video feeds are all the rage currently in the tournament circuit. Adepticon was the first to truly implement it, and many others have come on board. The question is, how do we do it right? I want to talk today about live video streaming and what I think works and doesn't work.

A Veteran's guide to getting your arse handed to you.
"It was the dice, I swear." Yes, failing five of your eight 2+ saves against grots is mildly disconcerting, but hang in there, it can only get worse. Having this kind of luck every game has seemed to by my norm as of late, and many of my dice have been severely punished as a result.
