Warmachine: Knights Exemplar Errant Command

 Here are the last few models for my Knight Exemplar Errant unit. This consists of the unit leader, as well as the unit attachment with an officer and standard bearer.

X-Wing: TIE Fighters

I've played enough X-Wing now that I'm comfortable starting to review the ships. This will be sporadic, as I'll only be writing about the ships that I've flown enough to feel like I really know them. I'm going to start off with the TIE Fighter, covering the pilots available from the core game and TIE Fighter expansions.

The TIE Fighter is the second most iconic starfighter from Star Wars, after the X-Wing of course. Just like in the movies, the TIE Fighter is cheap, maneuverable, and expendable. With only 2 attack dice, it's not a particularly hard hitting ship, but 3 evade dice make it hard to hit. It's only got 3 hull points and no shields, so it can't take much punishment if the enemy starts landing hits.

What does the Blood Angels Codex Need?

I've been playing my Blood Angels a lot lately and, as a result, I've gotten into a few discussions about what is needed to bring them back in line with the other codices in 7th edition. To be clear, I don't mean to make it a top codex on the level of Eldar; just make it so we don't feel like we're playing with such a huge handicap. That seems to be the prevailing sentiment among Blood Angels players, and it's no secret that Blood Angels are considered one of the weakest of current codices.

The problems with the codex can be divided into two areas. The first are problems with the datasheets. These are issues with individual units that make them less than usable. The second area is problems with our detachments and formations, which just aren't up to the levels of those found in Space Marines or Dark Angels.

Warmachine: More Knights Exemplar Errants

Here's my next batch of Knights Exemplar Errants. They're pretty much the same as the first batch, but I think I rediscovered how I used to paint the white armor. This batch is a better match for the warjacks I painted a year ago, but the whole unit is close enough that they mesh pretty well.
