The sudden death of competitive 40k

So it's looking like the major events are going back to the hobby centric theme for their GTs. Unrestricted 40k is pretty much a thing of the past. Personally I think a lot of the attitude behind is to do what's easiest. It is disconcerting though. I would love to see the restrictions lifted on sources so we can play 40k as intended rather than harking back to the boring past. In truth allies have been around for a long long time it's just now basically every army has access.

It's funny as only a few years ago there was a major grass roots movement to bring back competitive 40k and like I said it appears to me most organizers are doing what's best for them.

Here is what the NOVA TO said today:

"The more sources you have, the more options you have, the less competitive the game gets."

Why we should ban wave serpents at the local level

First off they are way too good and they are very spammable. I remember when I first read the totally bs eldar codex and thinking "wait wud ???" To me the wave serpent is the main offender in a totally horrendous codex. Write a letter and send it to corporate - let them know exactly how you feel about it.

/semi serious sarcasm

Serpent spam came into vogue with the release of 7th edition and the new tighter ally matrix - Tau and eldar are no longer battle brothers - which never really made any sense to me.

Imperial Armor Volume XIII

I have to say this is one of my favorite books from Forge World and it was a long time coming — basically everything Chaos from Forge World in one book. I can't wait to break out a lot of my favorite toys. I will be doing a short series of articles highlighting the units not reviewed by others such as the Greater Brass Scorpion of Khorne. This is your go to book for Chaos. I've noticed a lot of the standout units were missed — I'm talking about the through and through Chaos Space Marine units that Daemon players just seem not to understand.
