Wow those Excoriators are next level. Next next level. I'm not sure how replicable the advice is for someone with my eyesight and two left thumbs though msn-wink.gif

Thanks! Hopefully after NOVA we'll be able to get some more of the hobby content flowing again - in particular, the long-awaited part 3 of Fists of Fury featuring the Crimson Fists!

This is a big one. Also out Ultramarines supplement review drops very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that! 
 
Codex Supplement: White Scars – The Goonhammer Review
 
J4Dce2e.png?1
 
Lots of good tactics and insights to be had here as always. 
 
How To Paint Everything: White Scars
 
Jack "Booley" Hunter collects and dishes out some kicking rad ways to paint White Scars.
 

 
4B62rI0.png?1
 
Noted Elf Lover (curse his false discord admin-ness) Corrode talks about Harlequins and how to win with them. My editorial notes of 'the only good eldar is a extra dead eldar" sadly didn't make its way into the article. 


The Road to NOVA, Part 5: Ah, ****
 
TheChirugeon hits peak panic, which makes for good reading. 

Getting Started With Warhammer 40,000: Ham Etiquette 101, or How Not To Be That Player People Talk About On Forums And Such
 
I4B5V7h.png?1

 
Condit talks how to be a cool and good warhammer player not just in a tactical sense but a "awesome dude to play against" sense. 

 

 

Annnnndd Boon talks about how to spot and deal with someone who is not an awesome dude to play against. 

 

 

Wings talks about how Nova tournaments work. Which is great because oh boy there are some things to remember. 

 

 
Richyp, noted paint wizard, talks about how to do easy OSL. 
 
 
Wings continues to be actually good at the game and writes about how he went about coming 3rd in the London Open. 
 
 
1on8VaY.png?1
 
Narrative forge is a new series, I'll let Dolan, the writer of the first article in it, explain what it is:
 
The Warhammer 40,000 universe is a massive place, and the “Narrative Forge” hobby articles encourage thinking outside the box (literally) when putting models together. They aim to make hobbyists comfortable growing beyond imitating the models they see in their Codexes, and serve as a source of inspiration for anyone wanting to make an army that’s uniquely their own. 
 
JB continues his awesome retrospective on 40k games, this time visiting the DOW expansions and a few mods.

 

Wow those Excoriators are next level. Next next level. I'm not sure how replicable the advice is for someone with my eyesight and two left thumbs though msn-wink.gif

 

I'm convinced that Skails is actually an advanced painting robot from the future and I refuse to believe anything different. 

 

They are Super cool.
I am going to try those bulletholes with silver on Black armour

 

Please post up the results, I'm sure he would love to see them!
 

love your work guys ! keep em coming !

 

Thank you very much! :D 
 

Love this content, especially the hobby articles! Can't wait to see more!

 

Thanks mate, it doesn't get the raw clicks but I really think we need to put it out there. Way too much How to Paint content is ending up on youtube, which is fine but sometimes written text + images is as better way to do it. 
 

 

The content has been very good all round. Great work, guys

 

Thank you!

Content drops for the content god, Posts for the post throne!

 

 
Our weekly outside/inside content drop. Always lots of fun stuff to be had there. 
 
Mike Brant, runner of NOVA gave this a shout earlier in the week so you know this must be on point. A great primer by Wings for NOVA. 
 
Dan of 40k Badcast fame goes into detail about the new Necro book release and how it works. 
 
 
Soggy gets in some valuable last second practise/panic.

 

 
Check out the NOVA Goonhammer crew's GT lists, with commentary from the authors. 
 
 
JB keeps his excellent gaming retro articles rolling in. 
 
CxOdPYM.png?1
 
Nothing I can type will beat SRM's art for this road to NOVA article. Go read it. Also check out the 40k badcast. It's great.
 
FromTheShire is going to nova. Nova is in less than week at the time of writing that article.
 
This is his to do board.
 
28mD7mK.jpg?1
 
Pray for him.
 
 
Look at these two key quotes. 
 
"Listen up, because this is important: I bought two BadCast BadShirts, in two different colors, so I could wear one both days without it looking like I just re-wore the same shirt. This is more thought than I put into my entire army."
 
"Then, as you do, I spent the next two days getting windmill-dunked through the floor on two different Discord servers, culminating in TheChirurgeon mailing a Dark Talon to my house.
TheChirurgeon’s Note: Like 50% of the reason I mailed that jet to ANAmal.net was for the fun of making him sweat the painting deadline with the rest of us."
 

Anamal.net's entire road to Nova has been a gem. Check it out. 

 

 

Really enjoyed this one. I also really like the review, Strat by Strat, relic by relic, with a letter grade to each ability.

 

Thanks mate, they really went the extra mile with the marine release drop reviews and it shows. Seriously can't understate the frantic activity in discord.

 

My contribution was "Talk about assault marines a lot guys." tongue.png

The last part of our Marine dex review mega series. In short dreadnaughts are now 10/10. 
 
 
Continuing the forgeworld theme, Jack "Booley" Hunter has a ganda at Custodes and their new update. 
 
 
The Chir posted this while he was at NOVA. That's dedication right there. Also the usual procrastination based dread for a road to NOVA.
 
Our normal weekly round up. 
 
 
Stay tuned for a bunch of NOVA goodness from the crew. Speaking of which Boon's eldar ended up on the WHTV stream and looked great!

We are going one better with an entire article! 

 

 
Also these dropped:
 
 
ANAmal may or may have not broken his 20 game losing streak. Read on to find out if he did! 
 
 
The Necro-Lads drop their normal Monday awesome-ness, with a breakdown on House Delaque.

This was a huge score by the crew. Over the last three years, Pete Foley, the Book & Box Games Manager, and Robin Cruddace, the lead games designer for Warhammer 40,000, have become faces for Games Workshop, engaging with the community on a regular basis, both online and through events like NOVA. On Saturday at NOVA, roving Goonhammer reporter Jonathan Bernhardt got a chance to sit down with Pete and Robin to talk about the convention, the games, and the experience.
 
 
A look a the last gasp of the pre marine codex meta.
 
 
 
Chur's Nova wrap up is gold.
 
 
Ditto for Soggy.
 
 
Also for Corrode, the false admin.
 
 
And Boons. Boons is a hell of a tale of pulling the sliver lining out of a bad situation and ligating games over social media.

The boys are knocking it out of the park. Stay tuned for more next Monday.

 

I love the editorial injections in your articles - they're often infrequent enough to be special, but always informative and always enjoyable.

 

They are my fave thing to add to the articles and show the personality of the crew coming though. 10/10 best thing to steal from WD ever.

 

 

The articles remain fantastic reading! Can't wait to see more reports from NOVA!

 

Thanks! please enjoy the final reports!

 

The necromunda articles are brilliant and useful in the extreme.

 

I'll pass that onto the lads! They are doing a 10/10 job.
