Prot’s Hobby Update and Unit Review: Hammerfall Bunker, Firestrike Turrets, and Primaris Techmarine.

A Hobby update during a pretty heavy Covid lockdown: Truthfully I decided to knock off some units that I don’t see playing much, if at all. Just my opinion but I’ve tried the Firestrike Turrets and they might be the worst new units in the game. They move 3″, cost too much, and really suffer from line of sight issues

The Ultramarines are Back! Some Thoughts on Codex Space Marines for 9th Edition.

In this article I will share some of my early findings (positives and negatives) while sprinkling in some various shots of games (not just my own.) I’ve been playing a lot of games whenever

Ultramarines Quickie Battle Report: New Space Marines Codex for 8th edition

This is just going to be a brief overview using a list I more or less feel is pretty accurate. As I write this I don’t have the new codex in my hands but I’ve played a few games with the new rules and the Ultramarines in particular. It’s funny how the rules overall seem really decent, but there’s no
