Games Workshop have released details of the new Warhammer 40k psychic phase, and as expected they are looking a lot like Age of Sigmar psychic rules : https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/04/28/new-warhammer-40000-psychic-phase/ The similarities to Age of Sigmar magic are: A set number of psychic castings per model 2D6 to cast Everyone knows one or two basic psychic powers, probably plus a signature psychic power. What we don’t know is if there will be a psychic phase, or if the psychic phase will be rolled in to a command phase like Age of Sigmar. Personally I think that the Age of Sigmar combined command and psychic phase is working very well and I hope that this has been brought over to the new WH40k! Smite is Right! Smite is the power that all the psykers will know, and it does look like Arcane Bolt with 18″ range and an extra kick if you roll 10+. It is probable that 18″ will be the standard distance for psychic powers and dispels / deny the witch. If 18″ is the standard distance then it will be awfully close. Standard weapons range is 24″ and I don’t see that changing. Also 18″ is on the edge of…
We all know that it is time for Warhammer 40000 to be updated. It has been 3 years since the 7th edition came out and that was a fix release from the 6th edition that came out a year earlier! Don’t get me wrong, the 7th edition of 40k has been very popular. The addition of objectives forced gun-line armies out from their barricades and give assault based armies an even chance. The move away from Standard formation armies to factions and themed armies has added co;our to the game too. However to keep the game fresh the rules need to change and grow from time to time, and basically the time is right! Here is the latest post on the changes due in the next version: Warhammer 40,000 News from AdeptiCon From the post I suspect / expect that Games Workshop will be taking some of the best bits of Age of Sigmar and bringing them back in to Warhammer 40,000. The first on the list was the recognition that the Generals Handbook and the ‘3 ways to play’ have been a great success in Age of Sigmar. I do have to echo this recognition too. The simple free…
I have been tweaking the website design recently as it seems that most of you ( 60% ) are using smart phones to read these pages. The improvements you may notice is that the search result images are now under the headlines so that the results fit better on these smaller screens. The right column content still drops under the main content so you can access the search features and menus. All these changes have been tested on larger screens so that the 39% of you using desktops and 1% using tables still get a great looking site!
Age of Sigmar General’s Handbook Pre-Release Overview So Age of Sigmar has been out for about a year now and here comes the rule book and the first army book. The Age of Sigmar rule book is to be called “The Generals Handbook”, and advanced copies can be sewn at your local Games Workshop shop. They are available for pre-order in shops and mail order suppliers like Wayland Games. The Black Library also has a ‘sample’ e-book that you can download. The sample is mainly the introduction that explains what Games Workshop are trying to achieve. Just a note about the sample download. It comes as a eBook EPL v3 file. On most of the ebook readers that I tried on my Android device the background images for the page texture was displayed separately from the text, even on eReaders that say they read v3 files. However, after some searching I found that the ‘Kobo’ eReader did render the pages properly. You need to click on the menu item and import the documents on the device. It is worth the effort though. Once you have the sample properly rendered it does look as good as the printed publications Games Workshop…
Phew! Finished updating the Space Marine HQ Tactics. There’s no resting though with all the updates being released this summer, so I will be right on with updating the Space Marine Elite tactics over the next few days too!
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!

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!
Now that the Warhammer 40k pages have been imported from the XSitePro site to the new WordPress site it is time to start importing the Warhammer Fantasy web pages. While I am doing this I will edit any errors and omissions too.
I have been working on website the look and feel this week. Using the ‘Morgana’ web page template the site now has an easier on the eye look and some space for some drop down menus in the Right Panel. I hope that the new menus make it easier for tablet and smart phone users to get around the web site. I have also added some ‘301’ redirects so that inbound links will be redirected to the right web pages. There is still a lot of converting left to do though. Many pages are still needing to be moved across from the old site, and links in the web pages need to be updated too, so I better get cracking on!
Changed the web page theme to one that is more readable. Spruced up some of the formatting too.
