Tales from Titan: Warp Shaping

Hail fellow Brother Captains and welcome back to the Vault! This week I've played a game of 40K against James's Deathwatch force resulting in a narrow defeat for the Grey Knights. It was great fun, and I learnt more subtleties of playing the elite Sons of Titan.

In particular the Warp Tides are key to successful play, and understanding when to change the Tide (or not) is an important skill. In this post I'll recap the Tides (and some thoughts on when to use them).

Tales from Titan: A Grey Knights Psychic Phase Primer (Part Two)

 Welcome back to the Vault once more!  Today's post is the second part of my primer to the Grey Knights Psychic Phase. You can find the part one here, where we discussed the probabilities involved in casting the various psychic powers; now we'll talk about the powers themselves.

Please note, like a lot of information on the internet this post contains opinion; your opinions of the powers may be different and you are encouraged to garner your own experience from the table top. Nothing beats playing the game!

Tales from Titan: Venerable Dreadnought

Hail and welcome to the Vault once again! It's been a wonderful bank holiday weekend which has meant an opportunity to indulge in some painting time. I'm continuing to work through some of my Grey Knight models, and have completed a Venerable Dreadnought to add some long range Anti Tank fire support to my troopers.

Tales from Titan: Grand Master Voldus

Greetings my fellow Brother Captains, and welcome back to the Vault. This week's hobby time has been spent painting up some reinforcements for my 40K Grey Knights collection. I'm working on the models I need to complete my first 9th ed army list, namely a Dreadnought and Grand Master Voldus.  

I've finished up Voldus bar basing, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.

Tales from Titan: A Grey Knights Psychic Phase Primer (Part One)

 Welcome back to the Vault my fellow Grand Masters and Brother Captains. I'm continuing my exploration of the Grey Knights and how to play them in the new 9th edition.  The Grey Knights are unique among my armies in that they have a lot of Psykers available (pretty much every unit can cast a power), and there are Relics and Stratagems which can modify the psychic casting dice rolls. I've found this to be a bit intimidating and confusing, so I thought I'd write a primer to help myself (and hopefully other Grey Knight players) out.

In this post I will be focusing on the likelihood of casting powers, rather than the powers themselves. I will cover the powers in a future post.

Tales from Titan: First Grey Knights 9th Edition List

 Welcome to back to the Vault fellow Grand Masters! The weather this week has been glorious but detrimental to painting; i.e. far too hot! Undaunted however I have played another "Learning 9th edition" game with Dave G, and I decided to bring the Grey Knights out for a spin across the table top.

This will be something of a rambling post as it will give me an opportunity to capture some thoughts and good ideas for future games. I hope you might get some benefit from the thoughts as well.
