Waging the Long War: Tips for Winning Every Imperium Matchup

After the overwhelming response to the WarpHammer article about how to beat Space Marines, we decided to expand that into a series about how to win every single matchup in the game. This series will have three articles: Beating the Imperium factions, beating Xenos factions, and beating Chaos factions. Up first (but definitely last in […]

Status of the Nurgle Daemons Guide, and Thoughts on Disgustingly Resilient

Hey everyone, hope you’re doing well. We’ve received a lot of questions about when/if the Nurgle Daemons guide is coming, so I just wanted to quickly address that. The recent Death Guard codex previews indicate that Disgustingly Resilient is changing for Death Guard units (from a 5+++ feel-no-pain to -1 Damage to incoming attacks). This […]

Blessed Contagions: Exciting Synergies in the New Death Guard Rules

Warhammer Community recently previewed Death Guard’s upcoming bonuses for remaining mono-faction, called Contagions. The Contagion they revealed is called Nurgle’s Gift, and is an increasing aura of -1 Toughness for opposing units near Death Guard units. Caveat after some feedback: Since we don’t have access to the full codex yet, let’s assume that summoned units […]

Changing the Game: The Guide to Winning with Tzeentch Daemons

There are some units that are powerful in obvious ways. Eradicators are a great example of this. You can place them down on the table, and due to their base stats and points, they just do their job very well. Plasma Inceptors are another great example of this. Custodian Guard with Shields are another great […]

Blood, Skulls, and Victory Points: How to Win with Khorne Daemons

I’m going to start this article with a counter-intuitive point: Khorne Daemons are a finesse army. This fact may anger Skarbrand, but it’s true. There are armies in the game that can deploy without much worry, take a beating, and deliver a strong counter-punch. Khorne is not one of those armies. You will have to […]

Review of the 9th Edition Forgeworld Daemons Updates

It’s finally here! Five months into 9th Edition, Forgeworld delivered on their promise of updated datasheets for 9th Edition. While Daemons were never a faction that relied heavily on FW units for either competitive or casual play, they had some special Characters and Lords of War that desperately needed new points costs and datasheets. In […]

Beautiful Violence: How to Win (Excessively) with Slaanesh

Quick. Beautiful. Lithe. Alluring. Deadly. Slaanesh Daemons are back, and here to stay in 9th Edition. Slaanesh is, broadly speaking, an anti-melee melee army. That didn’t really work in 8th Edition, which revolved competitively about bringing brutal shooting and consistently holding a limited number of objectives. Now that opponents have to come contest objectives to […]

Beating The Bogeyman: Winning Against Marines

“How do I beat Space Marines?” is one of the most common questions among 40K players these days. To understand how to beat Space Marines, you have to accept two things:  They will shoot more efficiently than you. They will fight more efficiently than you (probably). Where most people go wrong is they look at […]
