Equivalence: Death Korps of Kreig vs. Germany in WWI

I've never been a big fan of the Death Korps of Kreig. They've always seem to me to be a great big money grab by Forgeworld and more power to them for it but I like my wallet how it is (only 1/2 empty.) It also didn't help that I've never really gotten the whole image of the Death Korps. The mindless obedience and numbered soldiers marching in ranks for suicidal attacks. Very 40k but also a great way to get killed. I prefer my guardsmen to have a bit more tactical know how.

Then I started learning a bit more about WWI.

NOTE: Not 40k, Strangely

Alternative List 1750: No Tanks!

Kinda going back to the idea I've had before of using artillery and infantry for a list, I thought that this might be a fun list to play at the upcoming tournament. What does the internet think?

Upcoming Tournament! 1750!

Well, the tournament I tried to organize isn't going to happen. Too many difficulties getting the players that wanted to do it a certain way to actually do it that way. I eventually quit. Not worth the stress.

That being said, I'm going to play in my FLGS's next tournament on the 12th of April and this is the list I'm thinking about bringing.

Ye thou I go through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil for I have the Demolisher Cannon and they do not.!

Mage 20th Anniversary Edition Kickstarter

I don't normally get to talk about RPGs because I don't have the time (or players) to play them but I stumble across this and couldn't resist handing over a portion of my tax refund (good timing Onyx Path.)

Deluxe Mage: the Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition

If you know what this is, I both commend you and call you a great big nerd.

Linked Post: The Humble Lasgun

From time to time I see awesome posts on other blogs and think that, maybe, if I link to them on my own blog some more people might even read it. This was one of those moments.

I've been thinking about writing a post on the lasgun for some time but never quite got around to it. Thankfully, a really great article over at The Imperial Patrol beat me to it. Less work for me and an entertaining read. Carry on.

A short post today but I wanted to talk about the new minis popping up around the web for the upcoming IG release.

Gads! The Horror!

Studying Warfare: The Nine Principals of Warfare

Now from time to time I hear people talk about playing Warhammer 40k and act they're somehow Napoleon leading is grand army. Often I just snork, nod my head, and move one with life. I mean, its a game, right? Right?

That being said, the study of warfare has always fascinated me and that's why I've gone back to college to get me a Master's in Military History. There is a lot of lessons to learn when so much is on the line and some study of warfare can translate over to games like Warhammer. To that end, I've decided to do a series (I don't know how many) where I attempt to apply lessons of warfare to games like Warhammer. So come on in, the waters fine.
