Gitz at Warhammer World

We spend a lot of time and energy getting together the Top Three List for AoS, but I think sometimes its nice to talk about a certain book and see what people chose to use. This is especially fun for armies not often in the Top Three, and hopefully gives you an idea of what else is available.

I’ve already done Big Waaagh at Quest for Champions, and as I’ve just been to Warhammer World with Gloomspite Gitz, it seems a perfect opportunity to look at Gloomspite Gitz. The Gitz community had hoped for a book this year, but as that seems unlikely this information may be useful to Gitz players!

Roald took a mix of squigs with some Shootas to give extra Battleline units. His Loonboss on Mangler Squig is his general and it has some punch allowing Roald a good chance at the Battle Tactic ‘This One’s Mine’. Beating Seraphon, Slyvaneth and of course Gitz; Roald did it the hard way beating two of the good armies in the tournament scene.

I’ll do short descriptions of each of my games, but beating Seraphon & LRL was certainly a good result especially with Kroak and Teclis present. Strangely the mass damage of the two super-casters didn’t do too much damage to the army, because there’s no small single link!

Matthew set Twitter & WhatsApp alight with 2 wins from 2, with his Colossal Squigs not seen in any of the other three lists. They may have let him down in the last three games though, as he couldn’t manage to sneak that mythical 3rd win for Gitz. He did it the hard way though, and no accusations of submarining would stick here.

Having had a reasonable day 1 by Gitz standards, Stephen was unfortunate to meet two Soulblight Gravelords and not managing to grab the second win. This army was interesting because of the 2 Mangler Squigs, not seen in the other lists, but he still has much of the units in the other lists.

Common Units

There’s a lot of Squigs here with big units of Squigs (36,36, & 24) being used in the three of the lists. We all took Boingrot Bounders, and three took the Ally – Marshcrawler Sloggoth (from Kruleboyz).

In 3 cases the Loonboss on Mangler Squig was the chosen as General, with only me breaking the pattern!

Conclusions!

With 8 wins from 4 players across 20 games we all struggled a little, but it’s always worth looking at this in perspective and to do that I turn to Honest Wargamer Stats:

The Honest Wargames / T-Sports Network Stats!

It shows Gitz hovering below 40% (actually 37% in the overall stats – putting them last), and not bad meta-representation at 3% (putting them in the middle of the pack).

So with 8 wins between 4 of us (one in a mirror) we were pretty much spot on where we should have been – it’s a shame we didn’t do better, but given the number of stats now available – not surprising.

Hobby Update – Horus Heresy Blood Angels

Space Marine Spartan Tank

With 40 Space Marines completed I now need to move onto the remaining four models. As one of them is quite big (very, very big), I realised I needed to get started on the Spartan.

As I’ve been playing mostly Fantasy and Age of Sigmar in the last decade I haven’t painted many tanks, so I needed to go back to basics and remind myself how to do it!

Assembly was a long process, but very straight forward apart from a small error with one of the top hatches. Once I’d worked that out it was completed and ready for undercoat.

Undercoat / Step 1

All my models have a black undercoat as I like the slightly darker affect it has on Mephiston Red. It also means there are no grey / white spots left even if I miss a bit! So I can always pretend it’s deliberate shadow.

I decided I would mask off the tracks and some of the weapons to ensure that these remained black as building back over red is a little pointless when it’s already there. If you’ve not done this before just make sure you take a little of the ‘stickiness’ off so that it doesn’t remove the paint when you take them off!

Step 2 – Red Undercoat

With the Mephiston Red undercoat on, and the masking tape removed it’s starting to look a lot like a Blood Angel tank. Next up is some pin washing (which I’ve never done before) with Nuln Oil and a little tidying up of the tracks where the red undercoat has snuck through!

I also need to finish the Lascannon Sponsors of course but they fit on very nicely to allow some movement of the model.

What’s Next

I need to finish the tank, and complete the remainder of the Age of Darkness Box Set. It’s great to be getting close to finishing a starter set!

Hobby Update – Horus Heresy Heavy Support Marines

Legion Heavy Support Squads.

The last of the normal marines… having painted 10 Terminators and 30 Space Marines I am now on the final stretch (before characters, Dreadnought and tank).

And what a final stretch… for these I cheated a little bit and bought a second box set.

Missile Launchers and Heavy Bolters

I selected these, because the Missile Launcher is iconic from the RTB01 box set and my first foray into Warhammer 40k, so long ago.

The iconic RTB01 box for the original plastic Space Marines

Missile Launchers

Missile Launchers with Sergeant

Heavy Bolters

Space Marines with Heavy Bolters (including Sergeant)

It was great to have a bit of a change following the 30 Tactical Marines and the weapons themselves are easy to paint – especially given the simple scheme for the Blood Angels. Fortunately Black and Red go together!

What’s Next

I am halfway through the Praetors and Dreadnought and they will hopefully be finished before an October trip to Warhammer World. Meanwhile I have also started my Land Raider Spartan – more on that later!

— Declan & Eeyore

Hobby Update – Horus Heresy Tactical Marines

Legion Tactical Squads.

To say that the Age of Darkness box set is bursting with value, is doing it a disservice. With 40 Mark VIs, 10 Terminators, 2 Praetors, Dreadnought and Spartan Tank; it has got everything you need to have a fun game.

I’ve previously finished my Terminators, and have now completed the Sergeants for the Tactical Marines.

As there are 40 Tactical Marines the obvious answer is to build them as 4 units of 10 to give a good backbone of any army, but I picked up a box of missile launchers and heavy bolters… so I have 3 units of 10 Tactical Marines.

Unit 1

Tactical Squad, including Sergeant with Power Fist

Unit 2

Tactical Squad with Chain-Bayonets and Sergeant with Power Sword

Unit 3

Tactical Squad with Sergeant with Lightning Claw

I really enjoyed painting these models. They have enough detail to be Space Marines, whilst not having too much to paint… no trim! Of course they do have the studded shoulder pads which took a while to get right, but I batch-painted them so got used to it by the 40th Space Marine!

What’s Next

I have finished the Missile Launchers and Heavy Bolters, so the next article will show some pictures of those!

This Weeks Stats

The following stats are for the week ending 28th August only, essentially GT’s that took place on the 27th and 28th August.

Rolling 4 Week Stats

The rolling stats includes all GT’s since the weekend of 30th/31st July to the 20th/21st August. This covers a total of 983 players (+152 players) across 24 Grand Tournaments (+3 GT).

As the new release of the GHB takes hold it looks as though the overall effect is a positive one, although the stats are starting to shift away from the 50% mark slightly again. With Destruction once again falling.

Its not been a good week for the Kruleboyz and this is also reflected in the four weeks stats with them falling to 35.0%. Come on GW, show them some love.

Here are the rolling four weeks win rates since we began tracking this information:

Faction Stats (Version)

The below stats are for every match in a grand tournament since the release of the new General’s Handbook.

A great week for Seraphon sees them extend a lead over the Daughters of Khaine with 9 clean sweeps to their 6.

Meanwhile at the lower end of the tables factions who have gone a whole tournament with five losses…

As for the win rates of each faction since the release of the new GHB:

In terms of faction popularity:

By rights, each faction should have an equal share of the player base, however we know this will not be the case due to either the appeal of the miniatures or the rules for the factions. Here we can see the most popular factions are Stormcast Eternals, Nighthaunt, Sylvaneth, Daughters of Khaine, Maggotkin of Nurgle, Seraphon and Skaven.

Currently it would appear that Seraphon players have the highest chance of going 5-0 at an even.

As for the win rates of each faction since the release of the new GHB:

Beasts of Chaos cling to their top spot but the Maggotkin of Nurgle seem to be having a resurgence and are not too far off their heels. Seraphon and Bonesplitterz are falling closely behind.

Kruleboyz fall back down the table and join Flesh-eater Courts, Ogors, Bonereapers and Gloomspite in the sub 45% win rate.

Hobby Update – Horus Heresy Terminators

Blood Angel Cataphractii Terminators.

With the standard marines finished (just special equipment and Sergeants to go), I decided to try to finish off my Cataphractii Terminator Squad.

I needed them to pop a little and then I saw what Mengel Miniatures had done over on twitter.

Putting aside that they are the wrong legion, I loved the breakup of the single colour and the use of gold goes nicely with Blood Angels as well. As if to reinforce the hint, I bought the Astartes (Loyalist) book, and veteran marines in Blood Angels use gold (who knew).

The sergeant already had black shoulder pads to designate him, but a full gold helmet definitely doesn’t look out of place, and I’ve once again taken Mengel Miniature’s idea of white on the legs but moved it down to the knee. This has allowed me to use the black transfers for the legion number, although they are small, so it was fun getting some of them on.

I then added gold trim to all the models in places that felt appropriate and … hurrah they are finished.

10 Cataphractii Terminators for Blood Angel Horus Heresy

And some more pictures for details:

What’s Next

I need to finish the Sergeants and special equipment troopers, the Praetors, a Contemptor and the Spartan Assault Tank. Lots to get to, but happy with progress so far.

Rolling 4 Week Stats

The rolling stats includes all GT’s since the weekend of 23rd/24th July to the 13th/14th August. This covers a total of 831 players (-13 players) across 21 Grand Tournaments (+2 GT).

As the new release of the GHB takes hold it looks as though the overall effect is a positive one on the overall win rates for each Grand Alliance as they all get close to that 50.0% mark.

This is the first time in a rolling four week period where only two factions have fallen below the 45% win rate. Are things getting even better for AoS?

Here are the rolling four weeks win rates since we began tracking this information:

Faction Stats (Version)

The below stats are for every match in a grand tournament since the release of the new General’s Handbook.

Daughters of Khaine, Seraphon and Maggotkin of Nurgle now have both achieved 4 5-0 wins a piece.

Meanwhile at the lower end of the tables factions who have gone a whole tournament with five losses…

As for the win rates of each faction since the release of the new GHB:

Bonesplitterz relinquish their top spot to Beasts of Chaos, however they both have win rates of over 57%, as do Maggotkin of Nurgle and Big Waaagh!

At the other end of the table Gloomspite Gitz are the only sub 40% faction, their new book can’t come soon enough.

In terms of faction popularity:

By rights, each faction should have an equal share of the player base, however we know this will not be the case due to either the appeal of the miniatures or the rules for the factions. Here we can see the most popular factions are Stormcast Eternals, Nighthaunt, Sylvaneth, Daughters of Khaine, Maggotkin of Nurgle, Seraphon and Skaven.

Currently it would appear that Big Waaagh! players have the highest chance of going 5-0 at an event, however this is from a small player base so will fall as more players register under the Big Waaagh! banner.

Hobby Update – Horus Heresy August

Blood Angel Batch Painting from Horus Heresy Age of Darkness Box.

Following on from my last update, I’ve made a little progress on my Blood Angels for Horus Heresy despite work being busy and the hot temperatures in the UK.

However, I did get some paint on the non-special models such that they are now complete.

Blood Angels – non-special troops

Following on from my previous update, I’ve added more black and picked out the details on the weapons with Leadbelcher and a highlight of Ironbreaker.

Missile Launchers

The missile launcher’s above show the colours used on the weapons. I have gone for a simple scheme and black and red so very well together.

There are also transfers on all the models, with Blood Angel wings on the shoulder pads, legion number on the left knee and unit marking on the right.

Basing

The basing is a simple affair with Vallejo Thick Mud (Brown) and a highlight of XV-88 to pick out the ridges. I was generous with the mud when applying it and it looks great – not least because it is different to the AoS Destruction base I normally paint.

There’s also loads in a pot, so I’ve hardly used any to base the models so far – it’ll definitely cover a lot of an army.

Finally I finished off the bases with a black rim to keep them neat the tidy.

The standard troopers from a tactical unit

What’s Next

There’s still the Terminators, Sergeants, and 2 special troopers to finish off. And I need to start the Praetors at some point…! In order to give myself something different to paint I’ve also assembled the Contemptor Dreadnought and given it a quick undercoat to be ready as the next model on the table.

I’m still aiming to complete by October when I’m meeting up with friends at Warhammer World and I think I’m still on target.

This Weeks Stats

The following stats are for the week ending 31st July only, essentially GT’s that took place on the 30th and 31st July.

Rolling 4 Week Stats

The rolling stats includes all GT’s since the weekend of 16th/17th July to the 6th/7th August. This covers a total of 844 players (+177 players) across 19 Grand Tournaments (+4 GT).

As the new release of the GHB takes hold it looks as though the overall effect is a positive one on the overall win rates for each Grand Alliance as they all get close to that 50.0% mark.

Here are the rolling four weeks win rates since we began tracking this information:

Faction Stats (Version)

The below stats are for every match in a grand tournament since the release of the new General’s Handbook.

Daughters of Khaine and Seraphon now have both achieved 3 5-0 wins a piece.

After the last weekend, all the factions have now achieved at least one weekend where they’ve had an army go to 4 wins.

Meanwhile at the lower end of the tables factions who have gone a whole tournament with five losses…

As for the win rates of each faction since the release of the new GHB:

Bonesplitterz increase their win rate to over 60%, while at the other end of the table Gloomspite Gitz fall to 35.8%

In terms of faction popularity:

By rights, each faction should have an equal share of the player base, however we know this will not be the case due to either the appeal of the miniatures or the rules for the factions. Here we can see the most popular factions are Stormcast Eternals, Nighthaunt, Sylvaneth, Daughters of Khaine, Maggotkin of Nurgle, Seraphon and Ironjawz.

Currently it would appear that Kharadron Overlords players have the highest chance of going 5-0 at an event closely followed by Beasts of Chaos and Hedonites of Slaanesh
