Ok we gave a short introduction last time about flyers, let's go over the most common seen flyers really quick so you have an idea what to expect if you aren't already running into several of these across the table from you. Just a quick run down of the units that we see most often.

If you have played a dozen or more games at this point of 6th edition you know that Flyers are a new dynamic that has to be considered both on the battle field and when list building. The flyer has really changed up the game in terms of balance and mobility. Let's talk a moment about this concept.

Only in the darkest of times are the Dreadnaughts of the Grey Knights chapter awoken by the Master Armourers. Silently they slumber in the Chapter's chamber of hero's until they are called upon to serve once more upon a battle field so far from salvation that the wisdom, experience, and undying will are needed once more. The Dreadnaught is a wealth of combat experience and is easily able to adapt to any needed battle field role from long range support, to spearheading assaults, and it not uncommon for a Dreadnaught of the Grey Knight order to assume command of detachments allowing the Brother Captain to focus his attention else where.

Devil's Night is now behind us, and the Holidays are fast approaching. So much madness surrounds our journey as we get closer to rapping up 2012. I have let this blog take a back seat while I worked projects but I actually have several things I want to start talking about here.
First off we just finished up the 12 days of chaos, a quick first impression and review of the new Chaos codex over at the Standard Template Construct. If you haven't checked it out I recommend doing so. We have gotten great feedback from several people about the series.
To wrap up the 12 day long series we are also hosting a contest allowing people to win a couple 50 dollar secret weapon Miniatures gift certs. The contest details can be found here.
On the same note The Chaos Manifesto is running a Contest giving away prizes for new followers which you can check out here.
Also on things that should be on your radar the Indy Open for March of next year is already selling tickets. The event caps out at 64 I believe so tickets tend to go fast. If you are in the area I would check it out it's a newer GT and the people I know that went last year all spoke highly of the event. I plan on attending in fact I already purchased my ticket. Link action here for more details.
Also fastly approaching is the Nov 12th date that Adepticon 2013 sales will begin. All events at adepticon sell out extremely fast. Last year I think the championship was sold out in days and by 2 weeks there was slim pickings for any events over all. If you area planning to go or throw down at the team event you may want to talk about it with your boys sooner than later to do some planning. I sadly won't be able to go this year. I was there the last two years and it's one of my favorite events.
Finally Expect more 6th edition content here. I am not going to lie 6th is a strange beast to me. It is much different than 5th even though it appears to not be too far off at first glance. The reality is the first time your 5th edition list runs into a true 6th edition list, the lesson will be painful. I have been play testing all kinds of random builds and experimenting to try and get a bit of a grasp on what I like and don't like as a player. Honestly though while I am finding builds that work, I am finding that I haven't found to many builds I enjoy playing in the new edition just yet. Allies has really changed the game, and several units are just vastly different from what they where before. If you run Razor Spam for example, the first time you run into a flyer heavy list it's almost a auto loss.
I'll be talking a bit about 6th edition in a little more detail over the next few weeks as I continue to test out concepts and list builds and as always you are welcome along the journey. I will start talking about flyers and how they have changed the game when it comes to the concept of balanced army. (if there still is such a thing)
That's all for now..
