Hey Epic players, just throwing out a link you may want to check out when you've got a second or 3. I've started a blog up to share some thoughts about Epic 40K. Primarily it's about army construction, sourcing minis and terrain and will eventually be a repository for battle reports too.

Feedback is always welcome and you should consider the blog a WIP as I find the time for more articles and generally work on my technical skills. Anyway I've started with content about Marines, Necrons, Minervans and Titans along with links and the best compilation of mini sourcing options I know about. If you have anything you think should be added let me know!

Latest blog update is ready to go, this time I'm sharing some initial thoughts about the Castle Assault Epic Tournament coming up at the end of August, can't wait for this one, it's going to be awesome. There's been lots of interesting ideas thrown around about the best way to run a tournament whilst maintaining balance in the community and encouraging new players through awesome events like this.

Hi, I just checked the army lists posted by "Kransky" from the CANCON event earlier this year.
On quick inspection there seems to be a number of formations with either incorrect total costs or incorrect compositions.
eg, list #5,
Quote:
5. CODEX 1 - Edited by TO to assist new player

1. Tactical Detachment - 625
6 x Tac Stands
Supreme Comd
2 x Rhino
3 x Razorbacks
Hunter

. . . . . [SNIP] . . . . .

8. Predator Detachment - 300
4 x Predators Annihilators

9. Land Raider Detachment - 500
4 x Land Raiders
Hunter
Formation #1 should cost 525, formation #8 should cost 250 and formation #9 should cost 400 making the list valid at 3000 points.

However Codex Marine list #9 lists
Quote:
5. Tactical Detachment - 450
6 x Tacticals
3 x Rhino
Supreme Comd
As specified this only costs 375 although the list correctly totals to 3000 points, strongly suggesting that a Hunter upgrade is missing.

Perhaps the post on that site could be edited to avoid further confusion . . . ;)

You know what, you're dead right Mate. Glad I didn't write those lists!
