G'day! 
 
I'm a writer for Goonhammer and I think we have a lot of content people on B&C would like. This thread will be kept up to date with our content as we go. If you have questions or stuff you want to see, please post here and we'll get right too it! 
 

Space Marine Codex Release Extravaganza Content!
 
Codex Space Marines – The Goonhammer Review – Part 1 (Army & Faction Traits)

 

Codex Space Marines – The Goonhammer Review – Part 2 (Units)

How To Paint Everything: Successor Chapters Of Goonhammer
 
OluzwZ6.png
 
 
This week's How to Paint Everything is all about Space Marines! Coda (of Cool and Good fame) is talking about Successor Chapters, with sweet paint schemes and tips for painting 6 chapters of the Emperor's *other* finest.

These are my dudes. In this army showcase I talk a bit about getting back into the hobby as a mindfulness tool to combat anxiety and depression. Also there is a ton of cool photos and some badly written lore and stories about my marines. 

 

 

 

How To Paint Everything: White Scars
 
Jack "Booley" Hunter collects and dishes out some kicking rad ways to paint White Scars.

 

 
Check back over the next few days for more. This is going to be a barnstorm of the best wordy words we can muster and great photos/drawings. 
 
 
Here's some examples of our Astartes focused content:

 

Easy-ish Contrast Based Emperor's Spears: Bonus rant about colour schemes and test models. 

Repulsor Executioner Points Increase – The Goonhammer Hot Take

Jack's insanely nice Imperial Fists. Seriously they are among the best on the internet imho.

Army Showcase: TheChirurgeon’s Night Lords
 
Mathematical Musings – Repulsor Executioner Review/Analysis (Part 1)

How To Paint Everything: Ultramarines
 
How To Paint Everything: Imperial Fists 
 
How To Paint Everything: Dark Angels w/ bonus Instar, Vallejo, Citadel and Contrast Review. 
 
Blood Ravens Review And Tactica. 
 
Chaos Space Marines and Vigilus Ablaze Review – Part 1 (Units)
 
Chaos Space Marines and Vigilus Ablaze Review – Part 2 (Army Options)

 

We also have great getting started articles and even better art work!

 

Start Competing: Adeptus Mechanicus Tactics
 
XP5Qg2T.jpg?1
 
 
We also dabble in some slightly oddball stuff, like when I tracked down a new in box copy of the very first Space Marines I brought 20 years prior and painted it as a celebration of two decades in the hobby. 
 
Part 0 - Intro, turns out I couldn't paint when I was a 10 year old.
Part 1 - 1998 Space Marines Combat Squad Review.
Part 2 - 20 years of painting progress. 2018 vs 1998
 
Anyway like I said above, if you have any kind of content you want to see or questions about what we have done so far, please let us know!

Thanks!

Still waiting on that next Fists of Fury article :D Also really appreciated the in-depth analysis of the Repulsor Executioner.

The only feedback I'd provide is that the site is a bit bland visually on mobile, but that has little to do with the quality of the content.

I hope to see much more from you guys!

Thanks mate, I'll pass that onto Ellar, he will be over the moon to hear it. :D 

 

Ditto the comment about our mobile experience, there are couple of rough edges for the guys to figure out there. 

 

Speaking of new content, this just went live:

I was a little disappointed by the paint everything links, but that's on me because I was expecting a guide to painting every unit available in each army, or at least infantry, special infantry (terminators etc) walkers and vehicles.

The next Fists of Fury is on the way and will include one of my Crimson Fists (the army I've been playing since I restarted the hobby in 5th!) but Alfredo is in crunch time for his NoVA prep with some dastardly space elves, so the Fists are on the back burner now. I'm looking forward to it as much as you are!

That's a cool idea, and we could expand the series to include talking about applying the techniques to other models. Thanks!

That's actually not a bad idea. We could aim for that long term, right now we are doing this totally out of our own free time/pockets.

Many thanks! It's a labour of love that's for sure.

Thank you! It was a joy to write about something that awesome.

Updates for the updates god!
Posts for the post throne!

Noted excellent cartoonist and nice person (please draw me something) The Chirurgeon has continued his Road to Nova posting. Read along to see panic set in as he realises he only has one month to get his chaos army finished.
 
Jonathan “Crion” Bernhardt spills the beans on Warhammer 40,000 Mechanicus and it's new expansion Heretek. 
 
Dan, aka From The Shire, much like Chuir, panics during his Road to Nova update. Click for the cool pictures of his Guard/Blood Angel army, stay for the raw panic. 
 

 

I've really enjoyed the goonhammer articles, especially the unit analysis. Keep it up guys!

 
 Thanks mate, I'll pass it onto the team! Is there anything you would like us to take a look at?
 
 

Oh no - mere days after posting, GW ruins not just the Executioner as a viable unit but all the work you did on that article!

 
That will teach Ellar that he should totally procrastinate to avoid this in the future. tongue.png

 

Real talk I think he is already doing an update to cover that plus the deathwatch version.

Thanks, those two have an excellent way of writing up conversational humour.

I'm perfectly happy if you guys keep focusing on new units that are released. I think you'll have your hands full with the new Primaris releases coming soon anyways.

Traveling today and this is exactly the type of stuff I want to read at an airport bar, thousands of kilometers from my hobby supplies. Helps me feel connected still lol

Lol I enjoyed this. I bought a single Executioner and have used it two games - found it to be a good unit. I was tempted to get a second but I'll hold off until we see what happens in the codex.

I caught your guys repulsor review earlier. I have to say I absolutely love your guys mix of competitive talk with casual. Sometimes it feels dizzying having to learn stuff about competitive armies, your guys article was fun read that was easy to read, all while being informative!

Two articles up today.

 

One which will be of keen interest on this site, I suspect - Jack's Imperial Fists army showcase, featuring some truly amazing looking models: https://www.goonhamm...imperial-fists/

 

Also, a spin on our Dadhammer series, Unclehammer - wherein immanentized discusses the best ways to introduce young gamers to the hobby: https://www.goonhamm...ext-generation/ Really helpful if you're a parent or relative trying to figure out how to get the kids in your life interested in our little hobby!

Damnation starts with little steps, by arrogantly thinking that you are wiser than our great forbears, by tinkering with truth, by compromising, by departing from the straight and narrow path of the Emperor’s light.

Thanks! I wrote that one, so I'm extra pleased when we get good reviews haha. Tomorrow will look in the other direction at the Craftworlders, then next week is Astra Militarum - we will eventually go through everything!
