Yes the original Tyranid army ‘Genetealer Cults’ are back and they are bigger and sneakier than ever.
As the vanguard of the Tyranid collective, Genestealers hide on floating space hulks and stowing away on unsuspecting commercial scavenging space craft. When these salvage ships land on a populated planet the Genestealers slip off the space craft and slip in to the dark recesses of the spaceport. From these dark recesses the Genestealers hypnotize those at the lower edges of society, infecting them with the Genestealer DNA. The of spring of these thralls are the Hybrids that become the core of the insurgent army that will disrupt the defence forces just as the Tyranid main force arrives.
I have added a new Genestealer Cults Tactic page with loads of hints and tips.

The Black Library have been busy releasing new Age of Sigmar books. This is making the game more interesting as new characters and races are brought in.
If you have not look at the Age of Sigmar books and ebooks, do! They make the whole game come more alive.
To start you off the Black Library has released the quick read ‘Vengeance Eternal’ as a free e-book. To get it you will need to create an account and then go to the Vengeance Eternal web page. Once you have you will be able to download the e-book from your Black Library account download area. As this e-book is a showcase for the chargeable short read series that follows it you can be sure that a lot of skill and effort has gone in to creating the story line that the next books will follow.

Yes, Wargame Tactics has become so big that WordPress can not cope with the number of pages on the website. To fix this I have created separate menus for Warhammer 40k, 8th Edition, and Age of Sigmar. There is also a fourth main menu that holds links for other wargames and general links.
While creating the new menu structure I have had a chance to review and improve the fonts and animations that I use. I hope that the new styling will make it quicker and easier to navigate around the website both on the computer and using mobile devices.

Dark Angel Supreme Commander Azrael.
Ok, here we go again! The 2015 release of Codex Dark Angels is out and I will be updating the Wargame Tactics Dark Angels Tactics web pages, starting with the Dark Angels HQ Tactics as these have received the most changes, including the promotion of Azrael from the HQ section to being one of the ‘Lords of War‘.
Other changes are that a number of Forations have been added to the codex. The formations are now where youcan find the Deathwin and Ravenwing armies, plus a number of other interesting formations, each with thier own special rules!

The King is Dead! Long Live the King!
Yes, Games Workshop have pulled the plug on Warhammer 8th Edition as we know it. In it’s place comes the much more simplified Warhammer Age Of Sigmar. What is more, to kick off this new war game Games Workshop are giving the first edition of the rules away free!
And what if you do not like the new rules? Well the 8th edition of Warhammer Fantasy still exists, and you can still get the rule books and army books from independent stockists. However the old rules will not be available forever so if this is what you want to do, stock up on the army books and cards now while they are still available.
> Also buy: 8th Edition Warhammer Rules from Wayland Games
So what’s happening here?
As for this site the Warhammer Fantasy web pages will still be up for a while yet, but the updates on those pages will be slowing down. In the meantime I will be adding Warhammer age of Sigmar Tactics on the website too, just as fast as I get to grips with the new rules!

Tags: Updates WH40k Imperial Guard
Time to get back to the keyboard and update the some strategy and tactic pages. This week I have been updating the Imperial Guard Heavy Support Tactics.
The Heavy Support section is where you will find all the tanks and mobile artillery options for the Imperial Guard army, so expect to find lots Guard Tank Tactics!
Tags: Updates website
On looking at the website stats recently I saw that more and more of you are visiting this website using tablets and mobile cell phones. With this in mind I have been playing around with the site theme specially looking at some of the small text on the site. So one of the main changes you may see is that the navigation menus on the right have increased in size so you can navigate more easily on smaller screens.
I hope this all helps!

Having spent a good few weeks updating the Tyranid Tactics and adding new and improved Tyranid Pics on the website it is now time to update the Chaos Space Marine Tactics for the 7th Edition of Warhammer 40000.
At the moment the Chaos Space Marine Pages are short of decent pics. With this in mind I have a marathon painting session in progress painting Chaos Space Marines that you will be able to see soon!
