Abraxia, Spear of the Everchosen: The Goonhammer Review

Huge thanks to Games Workshop for providing our team with Abraxia's Varanspear for review. When vague rumblings of a Daemonic queen leading armies of Chaos came up in Dawnbringers V, I thought for sure we were seeing a return of Valkia the Bloody. Imagine my surprise and delight when we didn't just get a refreshed old character, but a wholly new and entirely badass newcomer. Enter Abraxia, Spear of the Everchosen, Archaon's semi-trustworthy right-hand woman and foremost among the Varanguard. She arrives in the Abraxia's Varanspear box alongside a trio...

I’m still not wild about useful, powerful models and rules locked in an expensive set, but at least it all looks real pretty? Both sculpts are great, especially Vader, and the whole thing can be finished surprisingly quickly. In the end you’ll have two very useful models to use in game, and the satisfaction of them looking great ...

Detachment Focus: Awakened Dynasty

In this series of articles we take a deep dive into a specific detachment for a faction, covering the faction’s rules and upgrades and talking about how to build around that faction for competitive play. In this article, we’re covering the Awakened Dynasty Detachment for the Necrons. The Tenth Edition release of Codex: Necrons gives the faction access to five detachments, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. These can dramatically change how the army plays, as each one tends to push players to build in a different way. In this series we’re diving deep into each Detachment and talking...
