Witch Hunters Codex and the Daemonhunters Codex available for Download at Games Workshop



Games Workshop has released for download Witch hunters codex and the daemonhunters codex  it looks as if they are trying to phase out the allied rule for these army’s in the Witch hunters codex it is missing page 25 from the printed codex which contained  a lot of information on using Witch hunter as allies.
page 16 in the D L’ed version has a side bar with the troops you can take space marine and IG. I am not to sure if it was an over site on their part or when(if) the new printed versions will have new rules for allied forces………..

On the Work Bench


 What just Arrived in the work shop

100_0104 100_0105








Last week I pick up some goodies for my self first up was a oop Captain Cortez for my Crimson Fists I am not sure if I even want to take him out of the box or not....


The next thing I bought was a the witch hunter codex I really like the models and my wife she is tying to decide what she would like to learn the game with so I thought I would start buying all the codex's for her and me to read so she can get an idea of each one. 


Next on the list I bought was the 3rd edition space marine codex I really bought this one for the rules for Cortez so I could make my version of him to go with my CF army


I bought 3 boxes of Scouts for my fluffy Crimson Fists list I am running I am thinking of getting a fourth box just in case I decide to run 20 scouts


the last thing I got I pre order on the 28 of last moth but arrived this  week  is the really freaking big 20010 Citadel Catalogue man this make a great coffee table book I could spend hours looking at all the models that GW has to offer

Next on my list of models is a full tactical squad to convert to my second Stern guard squad. I am also on the look out for the Daemon Hunters codex and maybe the Imperial Guard codex


 Models I am Working on


Right now I am working on my tactical squad and converting them in to my stern guard. A moth back I bought two of the Crimson fists metal shoulder pads sets from GW and going to put them on my stern guard  I will be getting the deathwatch conversion pack and add a few of them in as well.

I have started on my first Sergeant now I am trying to decide  what load out he going to get. I am having a hard time with this I know I would like him to have the boltgun with the special ammo and giving him a power weapon this will reduce my attacks in close combat. I will ponder this for a a little while longer. I think having the sergeant grabbing two close combat weapons  would look awesome like two power swords….


  Landspeeder Storm

After testing out the Landspeeder Storm a few times I have decided to build that as a display piece (moved to the side) for now. I am happy with my 2,000 point list after I am done assembling  and painting this list I am going to start working on a 2,000 point Ork list.

Spray painting review Fat Caps

 The ones on the left are fat caps the ones on the right a skinny caps

In my model Prep tips part two I talk about fat caps. I bought some sampler pack to try and well I did some quick testing of which cap will work with what brand of paint I use . I had some issues with different caps an brands mostly Rust-oleum but man when you get the right cap with the right brand and it is a whole new ball game laying down primer.

I really like the orange dot left picture top left corner  that is a nice spray pattern  with Krylon and Color place.I am still working with the skinny's if they work on army painters brand of spray primer I will use them to do a lot of base coating

all in all the caps make a difference with the right combination it will lay down the primer really nice.
I haven't had any luck with these caps and Rust-oleum

Crimson fist 2000 point Fluff list test

I played my 2000 point list against dark angel list(not sure as what type).
It was a great game it came down to the bottom of the 7th round.The victory went to the Crimson Fists thanks to Kantor taking out Grand Master Azrael in the end I took the game by about 200 victory points hard fought points.

 Well I have now played 5 games of 40k my that brings me to 2 Wins and 3 Ties 0 losses
I think i need to get a lose under my belt before my head get to big (It might be to late for that :P ) well I really like my new list i need to try it out on other types of army's to see if it can hold up against them.
 I posted the basics of my list here or just scroll down to the next post,
