The return of the UCM

Critical Engagement is looming fast, and even though I have started a new army (Shaltari) I just can't bring myself to take an unpainted army to the tournament. 
So I'm going to take my UCM.......... with a little bit of difference. 

I wonder if these guys need a 2+ to make an attack run???

I'm bringing the sexy back and having Archangels. 
With the new Forward Air Controllers rule, it should help with the reliability. Also whisper it.........no Ferrum!

The Scourge Sweet Spot

How many Prowlers does it take to destroy a Mining Drill? Ten apparently!
Dropzone sometimes giveth, and sometimes it taketh away(eth). As it has been well documented on this very blog in the past, I have always wanted to play a Scourge army with a vast horde of Prowlers. The idea of two dozen little crabs running amok through the streets of Eden Prime filled my heart with joy, and made me giggle in delight.

CE: Assault On Atlantia

It has taken a little while, but here is the rules pack to CE: AoA!  To reiterate my earlier post, this will be a one day, 1500 point clash tournament with three games from the Hawk tournament pack. It will be on Saturday 1st November and tickets are a meagre £10.

If you are interested or have any questions leave a comment below, or (preferably) pop an email over to us at obteamdzc@gmail.com. You can also PM myself via the Hawk Forum.

Total Domination

In this article, I want to talk about something I've been trying to figure out an answer to. Maybe whilst writing this, it will become clearer.........who knows.

Why do Shaltari seem to dominate the tournament scene? 

Is it only in England? I'm not sure - I think our friends in Sweden and the US have the same or similar problem. Shaltari keep winning tournaments. 
Don't get me wrong, the Shaltari are certainly not a "point and click" army. You can't just cobble together a force and expect to win your games. They take time to learn and master, but in the hands of a tactically good gamer with some experience they can be a very potent force.
