So What Would You Guys Like to See?

With the holidays over and with my newest Necron list posted I’ve found that I have a bit of a writer’s block. I’m currently working on an article (or series depending on its length) regarding the current state of 40k going into its last year but it’s going to take a bit so I was wondering….

What would you guys like me to write about?

I’m open to ideas and anything 40k related pretty much goes. Feel free to put them in the comments so I can get started with some writing over the weekend J

My Current 1,850 Necrons

So the holidays have mostly come and gone and I’m home and not ridiculously behind anymore so it’s time to start posting all over again J

I’m going to start with where I’m currently at with my Necrons. I think it’s a solid list though I’m sure it’s going to require a lot of playing to get the feel of as it’ll require careful movement and it’s different than most armies I play. Anywho:

Codex Creep – The Myth and the Legend #2 (Unit Comparison)

Let me start this by saying I’m not picking on Corrollax. In fact I think his response actually highlights what a lot of people think and feel when they think of “Codex Creep” and so I thought it would be worthwhile to respond in a full article as opposed to a single entry in the comments section. So thanks Corrollax for giving me some more material to work with. We’ll start by quoting his last comment which was given after I asked how it was relevant to compare Incubi and Purifiers:

Blood Angel Heavy Calvary – 1850

From: Bolter & Chainsword

So here is a list I like. Not 100% sold on it but I think it’s pretty solid. It’s not as well rounded as the GK list I posted here yesterday but it could be fun.

Grey Knight Armored Spearhead - 1850

I’ve been on a bit of a Land Raider kick lately. I’ve been pondering tons of lists featuring 3+ Land Raiders since I think they’d be fun. I blame a fella at a local event this weekend who mentioned the 5 Land Raider Blood Angel list for getting my mind going down this road. Anywho:

Codex Creep – The Myth and the Legend

I know I’ve been a bit quiet lately and part of that is that it’s the slow season for me for 40k with the holidays and lack of general events until February but part of it is also that I’ve been sucked back into WoW a bit and am enjoying some relaxing smiting lately. Anyway I do still read things, generally while I’m at work, and today I noticed Polonius from Dakka put up an article in the DCM section that details his thoughts on Codex Creep as seen by most people around his local store and the internet. It’s an interesting article and if it gets moved out of there eventually I’ll link it here.

Anyway it got me thinking. I sometimes hear even seasoned players stating that certain books break the game or that no Xenos army is ever as good as a Space Marine army. I also hear things along the line of “well obviously it’s going to be broken, they have to make it better than X”. Between those comments and Polonius’s article I thought I’d give my view on “Codex Creep”
