New Necron info.

So, some some new Necron rumors hit the internet today. This time they're about Necron Warriors and Immortals. On the other side of this link is an image of what looks like a page from the codex itself.

See for yourself.

Looks like the Necrons are getting some fancy new weapons and wargear. Can't wait to see what the actual codex does to the army.

Warhammer 40k: Space Marine Review

Greetings all. As you can tell this is a review of the most recent Warhammer 40k video game Space Marine. Having finished the game twice now and played way too multiplayer I figured now was a good time to post a review. Warning there will be what some call spoilers in this. My apologies in advance on writing this review. Also I get a bit spacey, but that's because it is so hard to sum up the awesomeness of this game.

Let me introduce myself, and a campaign report

Hello readers! Eric here with my first article as an author here on the Battle Barn blog. Some of you may already know me from the barn. Others may recognize me from my own blog at The Wildrider Host. (yeah, it's a shameless plug but whatcha gonna do?)

So anyway how about a little bit of my gaming history. My sojourn into gaming started in high school when a couple of friends introduced me to Dungeons and Dragons. Yeah, that's right I started with D&D! It was also when I painted my first mini. A Balrog, which I painted with testers glossy paints, and thought I had done a grand job. When I showed it to my buddy he immediately handed it back to me and said it was too shiny. Looking back he was right, but it did sting. Anyway I played D&D for years.

Tactica: Tyranid Horde Movement.

First off, I want to be sure you understand this is Tyranid…horde…movement…tactics. These movement types don’t work as well for Ork or Guard or Marine horde. Orks, Guard, and Marines are all geared towards Assault, Shooting, or a combination of both with higher survivability respectively. None of these types of horde have the survival capacity of Tyranids. Tyranids especially can dole out FnP to the necessary units and also have a few ways of producing new units mid-game.
