Local Boys Made Good: Greg and Norman, Triumphant

We’re back from the most important event to happen this past weekend and boy do we have stories to tell. It’s got everything; losing, big lunches, Gundams, and a special surprise (or not really a surprise if you read...

2Q22 Dataslate Faction Focus: Richard Siegler Talks T’au Empire

Games Workshop dropped its Q2 Balance Dataslate for 40k in mid-April, dramatically changing a number of key factions. Astra Militarum, Marines and Sisters were buffed, Harlequins, T’au, and Custodes were nerfed, and some key game rules were changed. Now...
