Team FTGT Returns from ATC

The FTGT Team returned from its inaugural trip to ATC and I think we all had a blast, getting a bunch of games and not much sleep. For those who don't know, the ATC is the American Team Championship, and it's undoubtedly the biggest team event in the country. This year 58 teams of five made their way to Chatanooga to battle it out; that's 290 40k players!

Don't Break 8th! An Appeal to the Community

So, the New Warhammer 40,000 has only been officially out for a few days, and already there is a lot of discussion on what needs to be "fixed." It shouldn't be surprising, I suppose, but it leads me to writing this, and I hope you'll hear me out:

Out with 7th; In with 8th

I've had the beginnings of this post, a tournament report from the De-La-Warr Open, partially written for over a month. And like much of my attitude to 7th this year, I just never felt fully motivated to finish it and was more interested in looking ahead to 8th. With the official release of 8th today, I thought I'd finish this, and talk briefly about the path ahead in the new edition.

8th Edition Test Game Streams

Hi All, it's been a long time, and I'm working on getting some more "regular" content coming out, but I wanted to post up very quickly that I will be streaming our first game of 8th Edition today around 11amEST on Twitch.

The lists are below the fold, but I will be running a Nid list vs. James' Genestealer Cult and Astra Militarum army (heavy proxy warning). Come join us as we fumble our way through the new edition!
