Introspections upon perfection

Having read a certain post on Warhammer40k: Play Like a Girl I come to think of the same in my community and sadly, I find it to be a problem there too... Lots of people are complaining about codices, prices, rules and combos that people employ. It's all part of human nature: we instinctively despise something, that's beyond our control. But there's one thing I cannot understand and probably never will: to judge a player based solely on the army he's currently playing. It happened to me a few times too. I was met with unpleasantly offensive opinions just because I am playing Eldar. Only when I showed them the previous codex and got some support from my friends, people started to look more friendly at me. In the end we even laughed from some sick combos that Eldar are able to make and some ideas to counter them.

As my Iyanden collection is nearly complete, I'm thinking of starting a new army more and more frequently. There are three armies I'm interested in: Dark Eldar, Chaos Daemons and Adepta Sororitas.

The first army is really challenging to play with, but my friend already has them so I wouldn't want to double the armies but, on the other hand, they would make an formidable ally for my Iyanden as they helped the Craftworld many times over.

Adepta Sororitas has always been one of my favorites, but the current prices of the models is something that scares me off right now. They have a great codex though...

Chaos Daemons, especially She Who Thirsts, are... alluring. They would make an excellent addition to my project that I plan to use in this blog: the ancient struggle for survival of the Eldar race.

Let me know what you think! Please comment and share your ideas and thoughts!

Battle Strategies: Chapter 2, Part 1 is ready!

Greetings to you all!

As promised, I present the next chapter of my Battle Strategies:

Chapter 2: Moving around the army composition (Part 1)

In this chapter, I will try to convince you, that if you want to play effectively with an Iyanden army, you can do so without using any Aspects. First part covers the HQ and Troops review, where I put some comments on how do I use them and what role does each unit have on the battlefield. If you're interested in it, you can find it in the Battle Strategies section! Please comment and tell your friends about it if you liked it!
