Welcome readers, to the third part of my Space Marine review: Honor the Codex. Already we've discussed special rules and Chapter Tactics, as well as the Warlord Table and Relics. Today, we follow up on those discussions by examining the characters associated with each Tactic. We'll be going in the order the codex presents them in. Most of them aren't exceptional, but there's a few gems. Ultimately these characters have the problem that they're built for close combat, and that's not too much of something that your average list out of this book wants to do, leaving them over costed and underwhelming. So without further ado, away we go!

It was one of those moments of such mixed feelings when the Sisters of Battle received their new codex throughout the entire 40k community. While most armies receive a large amount of time on the GW website's front, and snag a bunch of fancy new printed books, models, and such... this update came not with a bang, but rather a wimper. The models have still yet to be updated, or even converted to Resin or Plastic, leaving many confused as to the reason for this sort of half-update. However, it is a fine move for anyone who has the army as this has made the army a bit more relevant on the large scale.
I had planned to do a review just to give a quick idea of what we could expect to see from this book, but before I could write even the first few thoughts down in a draft, Brother A. came to us with the first part of his own review, and asked that we publish it for him. So it's off to another Guest Article, this time delving into the newly revised Sisters of Battle.

So with the license to the 40k mmorpg picked up, work has been going steady to get this title up and running. The designers have produced some excellent information and prep videos featuring the slightest tidbits of gaming details. They have even started their own armies to get more into the game, which is cool in my book.
Today I received an email that their public forum has opened. So if you are interested in chatting with other like-minded gitz, check out their forums

Hello and welcome to our second part of our review of the 6th Edition Space Marine codex. As a primer to the series, we laid out some ground rules for a basic understanding of Space marines, and our first part took a look at the various special rules associated with the Big Blue Book. Before we can dive into the army list proper though, we've got just one last piece of prep work, and that is looking at our warlord traits and armory. If you need to catch up on the first part of the series, do that, and then we'll dig in after the break!
