Genestealer Cults Armee für das 2019 TTM Grand Tournament West in Worms

Den Sommer über habe ich fast ausschließlich Genestealer Cults gespielt. Die Armee macht richtig Spaß, auch wenn ich damit auf Turnieren immer mal wieder Zeitprobleme hatte und nie so richtig erfolgreich damit war. Jetzt, da die neuen Space Marines vor der Türe stehen, scheint es, als könnte die Zeit für die Genestealer Cults als Turnierarmee ohnehin ausklingen. In jedem Fall bringe ich die 3-bis-4-armigen Aufständischen noch einmal für eine letzte Runde nach Worms zum GT West. Weiterlesen

Warhammer 40K Miniatures used at the European Team Championships 2019

Mr. Ramsay at the Competitive 40K facebook group went through all the army lists submitted for the upcoming 2019 ETC, counting the more popular models that will be used at the event. All credit to him (I did not verify his count). I found the numbers quite interesting.

For reading this, there are 36 teams of 8 players competing at the event. Each team can only make use of each codex once. Thus there are, at most, 36 Chaos Space Marine armies, 36 Drukhari armies, etc.. . If a players uses, say, both a Chaos Space Marines and a Chaos Daemons detachment, his team-mates cannot use either codex.
