It's almost spooky how recently, I have been testing an Eldar army I'd like to try out at tournaments and BLAMO GW go ahead and release this news. It's like I can't stay away from these guys.
It wasn't freaky enough just having Sisters on their own, but Blood Angels too, which I ally Mephiston in with.

So I notice that Luke has already posted about this but without much explanation in his article "chapter master army of doom".
One of the things we as a team like to promote above all other things in 40k is to have fun. Now sometimes to achieve that fun we just like to smash people in games. However we also enjoy the game in different ways, one of those is by constructing silly lists that would be fun and cinematic to play with and against.
So the idea of this is to make something a bit different army wise not Tau or Eldar the so called meta, and see how it sits up to the challenge of tournament play. If any of these lists are successful you may even see them at Death or Glory 2 in March (shameless plug) for our second tournament, I know.

I do apologise for the absence (once again) as my internet went down just over a week back and now I find myself talking to you from the mysterious and fairly 90s like world of an internet Cafe.
Today we will be talking about the greatest assest to your fluff outside of your own army. An assest in the form of your worst enemy...
So let us dive into the first part of the 'Know your foe' section, all about choosing your enemy.
Right as per usual the glittery lights of a new codex have side tracked me, but unlike Eldar I refuse to do a Meta spam army. Us guys at Death or Glory are hopefully over the next couple of months going to each make a slightly ridiculous but competitive army to use at Tournaments, and this is my first attempt at a list. Those into your fluff, please look away now!!!!

Dark Eldar can ally with A LOT of armies. Unfortunately these are mainly desperate allies except of course Eldar. However considering how popular this duo is, I’ll leave the rest of the internet to tell you can get fortune on a beast pack and the baron and that gives him a 2+ reroll able invulnerable save. The more interesting choices are the desperate allies. Are these useable? If so which ones? Well let’s have a look shall we?

Myself and Mike guide Steve, Rich, Luke and Chris through the 5 games and have a general natter and a laugh as per usual.
Good evening Death or Glory blog readers! My name’s Chris, and I’ve found myself as the latest addition to this band of merry gents. In this post I’ll be talking about my first few steps in returning to 40k.
Almost four years ago I ended my eight year addiction to the hobby and took a break to move away to university. I’d known the Death or Glory guys for a short time before leaving the hobby, so having found their blog it was my first port of call when I decided it was time to come crawling back. I signed up for the tournament, and thus began my grand plans to return triumphantly to the game. As those of you who attended the tournament will know, I fell somewhat short of the mark, but had a fantastic weekend nonetheless.

Ray Duggins' Screamer Council failed the grimoire on turn 1 and 2 (with Fateweaver re-roll) and Rob Madeley (Necrons) took no prisoners.
The battle of the fitties, Andy Humpries vs BJ Mason ended in a narrow victory to Andy, Tau vs Tau was always likely to be close.

DoG Tournament Army Lists released! (yes, all 42 of them, heavily edited!) PLUS 1st round match ups!
DoG Tournament 42 lists PDF
This weekend there is an award for the most unusual BUT competitive list, the DoG team have voted and whilst we know the winner, who do you think qualifies for such a reward?
In other breaking news, there was an "issue" at a recent tournament concerning the wearing of vests, as such we would like as many people as possible to bring a vest for a silly picture at some point during the weekend, hopefully one of us can live up to the example set above!
GG and see you all at the weekend, Ru x
