You Adapted to the Imperial Knights Codex. I Was Born in It.

So the new Codex: Imperial Knights is freaking nuts. No more Seneschals or Knightly Ranks.

The Lord Baron (the new Seneschal) loses an initiative but can now buy 1 of 6 Heirlooms of the Knightly Houses.

Primary and Allied detachments have been replaced by Household (3-5 Knights; choose one to be your Lord Baron) and Oathsworn detachments (1-3 Knights).

All Knights are considered to be Lords of War now. (So tournaments better not negate an entire faction by limiting the number of Knights by allowing only a single Lord of War. I’mm looking at you, BAO and LVO.)

That should make getting lots of Victory Points for people when playing the Alter of War Escalation mission. (Receive 1 VP for every 3HP you pull off a LoW)

A big one for me is that if you choose Knights to be your primary detachment then all your knights gain Objective Secured.

Something that is funny to me but is very situational is the new Hurl rule that allows you to use a monstrous creature or vehicle as a large blast weapon against your enemies.

A Tournament and The New Adepta Sororitas

Had a great time at the tournament on Sunday. Lost very hard but met lots of new, great people.

  1. My first match (of three) was against a Grey Knight player and per usual my Salamanders just could not hold up to all the psy-bolt spam. Lost 2-15.
  2. My second match was against an Eldar (Space Marine allies) player. DIdn’t get tabled but I was left with my Land Raider and a single tactical marine at the bottom of turn 5. Lost 2-19.
  3. My last match was against an under-pointed Chaos Space Marines player. He had heard the tournament was 1500 points and was using a Dark Eldar vehicle as a Land Raider proxy. Still seemed like he was light on points and that make my victory sour. Won 13-2.

Here’s a picture from my second match. I didn’t get any other pictures because it was a pretty hectic day and I just forgot to whip my phone out.

In other news, the new Sisters of Battle digital only codex came out!

Likes:

  • Points are adjusted to be more balanced across the board.
  • The addition of War Hymns make melee fights less of a pain in the ass due to T3.
  • Some of the Relics are awesome.

Dislikes:

  • Only one Act of Faith per unit per battle. (With a couple exceptions)
  • Most of the Relics are shit.

So in the spirit of building a new 6th Edition Adepta Sororitas army, I’m starting with a model I picked up from Hitech Miniatures.

The Black Widow:

This “girl in terminator armour” is going to play as my Canoness HQ. The blade is a bit “Soul Calibur-y” but I think it works as a Blade of Admonition.

Other than scraping off the spiderwebs from her grieves and shoulder pads, the only thing I’ve done is added a bolt pistol bit I had laying around.

In all, I am extremely pleased with Hitech Miniatures and the quality of their casting.
