Pixel Art

      Hi everyone, I just wanted to show you all some things that I made the other day. I was over on Dakka Dakka the other day looking at all their little orkmoticons and all their other smilies. I noticed that there were no terminator icons, so I thought I'd see if I could whip one up. Well as you might expect it wasn't as easy as it looks. I made one that was 40x40 pixels (above) which wasn't too bad, but when I tried to make the 16x16 pixel ones that Dakka uses i ran into some problems. Mainly that it is really hard to take 256 little squares and make them into something that looks recognizable as a terminator helmet. But eventually I did it! And here it is:
     You may have noticed that I added it as the blog's favicon (I just learned that is what the little icon on website tabs is called) which is pretty nifty. I also attempted the deathwing symbol and got this:
     So what do you think? Kinda look like a terminator? I actually had a lot of fun trying to figure out how to make these, so i think I'll keep going. I think I'll try to make a Rhino next, and then maybe a Land Raider, and who knows what else! Thanks for reading!

Fixing the Power Spear/Lance


     So I'm not sure about all of you, but the power lance seems like one of the biggest wastes of 15 points. I even forget that it exists sometimes because the sword, axe, and mace are all that I use or hear about online. I really like the idea of a power spear for my Space Wolves. Imagine a pack of Thunderwolf cavalry charging with a power spear! That would be pretty awesome. But as it is, i would probably go with the chainsword instead. So I thought we should talk about why it is rarely (if ever) used on the tabletop and how it can be improved to bring it up to par with the other power weapons. Read on for the revised rules:

Army List: 1750pt Deathwing

     In honor of (almost) reaching 10,000 views (Thanks everyone!) I am putting up an army list that I'm pretty excited about! So first of all, I'd like to let you all know that the top three things about 40k that have fascinated me since the start are terminators, jump packs, and dreadnoughts, and the two armies that I have loved since the start are the Blood Angels, and the Dark Angels (and I've recently found that I also love the Space Wolves). I've never used more than 5 terminators in an army, but between the Assault on Black Reach and Dark Vengeance starter boxes and the Assault Terminators that my wife and brother got me for my birthday last year I found that I had the makings of a nice Deathwing just in time for the new Dark Angels codex to come out. And when I saw the Deathwing Knighs models I knew that I would have to get myself one of those eventually. Well folks, eventually has arived! With the Deathwing Knights in the mail, I present to you my first draft of a deathwing list. Enjoy!
