Apologies on the slight delay on getting this post up, I wanted to pop up a photo of the wings and it took me an age to take it!
For a change the 1st January fell on a Monday this year, which makes my hobby week a rather convenient Monday to Sunday!
So on Sunday I attended a small one day tournament with my Blades of Khorne army at Bristol Independent Gaming (BiG). This was a friendly event organised by Jim who runs BiG. Overall I had quite an enjoyable if long day, frustratingly I came rock bottom out of the 13 players and was constantly hampered by what I consider some of the inherent weakness in Blades of Khorne lists (in addition to Mystical terrain).
What I’m hoping to do in this post is to roughly outline my observations with the games I played, the event in general and what changes I’d make to my 1000 point list if I were to attend a similar event. Hopefully this comes across fairly objectively rather than me complaining that I lost!
This weekend, I managed to get a 1500 point three way game in, using some of the new rules from the new Blades of Khorne Battletome. I’ve not got the right combination of models to field any Battalions yet so was simply using Blood Blessing Prayers, new Artefacts and Command Traits, and the new Blood Tithe system.
Myself and many other Khorne players are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Blades of Khorne Battletome this weekend (8th April). The announcement came in the middle of March that we were getting one and we got a bit more information this Saturday when pre-orders went live.
Needless to say, we’ve had a number of leaked images of pages from the Battletome appear on the internet from various sources. These are slowly spreading onto the usual places (I’m sure it’ll appear on BoLS in a week citing how new it is) but I thought I’d try and collect them together in a post so that it’s nice and easy to reference them. I’ll also throw in my own opinions as I go.
