Competitive Innovations in 10th: Pariah Powers Up pt.1

The Pariah metagame continues to take shape this week, and we've got a bizarrely top-heavy suite of events to provide some additional date - lots of majors, barely any GTs. In terms of what's out there, Blood Angels look like the army to beat (the only faction to top a 60% win rate in our data this week), and you're starting to see plenty of other armies teching for clearing out hordes of 2W infantry, which also happens to be relevant into newly emerging Adeptus Mechanicus builds that go heavy on...

Hobby 101 – Fixing Mistakes

Over the years the Goonhammer crew have put together a vast and expansive library of painting guides. Appropriately titled “How to Paint Everything” we’ve got schemes and recipes for 100s of models. They all, however, assume you know the difference between wet blending and glazing or what the hell “zenithal” means. Welcome to Hobby 101. This series will lay the groundwork to teach you the fundamentals and best practices to make your models shine.  The Hobby 101 series is sponsored by The Army Painter.

Plenty of heftier builds are doing well too,...
