Sisters of Battle (& Blood Angels) Digital Release

So by now most of you will know that Sisters of Battle (and Blood Angels) are due a digital codex release this month.

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.

Crazy List Project...

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.

"Wonderful World of Fluff" Know your Foe, Pt1

Good Morrow and welcome to another instalment of WWoF!
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.


Chapter Master Army of Doom!

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: Desperate Allies: Choices!

So as the veritable storm of new Codex’s appear to have ground to a halt for now and the next one rumoured to be tyranids, it seems like a good time as any to revisit Allies. Allies, initially controversial, now are an excepted part of the game. It allows a better variety of armies and isn’t the overpowered game breaking mechanic many people thought it was.

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?

Death or Glory Episode 21: The Death or Glory Tournament

Hey guys and weclome to Episode 21, the review of our recent inaugaural Death or Glory Tournament.

Myself and Mike guide Steve, Rich, Luke and Chris through the 5 games and have a general natter and a laugh as per usual.

Allow myself to introduce... myself.

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.

DoG Tournament Day 1 Update!

So the DoG tournament is finally here and round 1 has been and gone, highlights of the round include Dave Symcox (Daemons + IG) vs Pete Corp (Chaos) on the feature table, a resounding victory for Dave.

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!

Howdy once again ladies and gents, finally after much rage myself with the aid of Mike have trawled through all 42 army lists and rewritten them in a more easy to read format (some people really tested my patience with), so without further ado I present to you the 42 army lists being used this coming weekend at the inaugural Death or Glory Tournament!

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
