I am a avid World War II miniatures collector, and thus have many Axis and Allies sets, including their ground warfare soldiers and vehicles and the War at Sea line. I have been looking intently toward getting involved into WWII air warfare. I already have the Wings of War game, including sets of those miniatures. They are easier to handle, and more durable. The starter includes cards for all 31 planes of the initial set.
In WoW, you need a special card deck for each aircraft, which is interesting, but is sometimes a pain to use. Although smaller, the WoW miniatures have high detail and quality.

It allows any friendly unit within 6" to fire on an enemy unit when it comes in via reinforcements. No range limit provided they are visible to the Rune Priest and within weapon range. So you could use your Hellblasters to snipe a unit coming in just outside of the 12" range of Auspex. Rune Priest also has a copy of our Aversion, so you could stack them to make them -2 to hit. They have a couple other useful spells worth looking at too.
You could drop them all in together to support each other, or they can each fight on their own pretty well. This is a very good post with some great SW insight, thank you. If I wanted to flesh it out into a battalion, what would you do for troops? Over on the SW subreddit it seems pretty split between Grey Hunters and Intercessors, but the amount of salt going on other there right now makes it hard to tell which is actually better.

They get chainswords so have twice the attacks of the intercessors, and can take a WGPL that you can kit out however you want. If their squad wipes out, but they survive you can convert them to a Lone Wolf character. They get two extra wounds and can reroll misses for both to hit and wound. Everyone just got the codex in their hands, so it is going to take a few weeks for it to get a good workout and for people to identify the real powerful combos.
We also have the fall FAQ due out next month. I think BA will see some nerfs to cut down on everyone bringing smash captains. Might see AM CP batteries getting nerfed as well. I've heard mixed opinions on whether the deep strike limitations will be permanently adopted, changed or tossed out.
So alot up in the air right now that could change the whole meta, but especially the Imperial meta. I totally overlooked that. I'd stick with the GH purely due to cost. Don't for get the Spirit Wolves power, this make Njal a super beast in melee, he is getting the following attacks: He has Nightwing as well for some assault chip dmg when he lands.
Not to mention his anti-psyker is just rediculous! Straken, priests, and a mess of guardyboys. Add officers as needed. They help firebase with ranked fire, they tarpit enemy chargers, they punch decently, and can help with late game obsec if they survive. I think Catachan's got usurped by Blood Angels in the meta, but they can be also very useful with Move! Sw don't give you that much that you don't get from ravenwing or blood angels, and since you probably already have a slamguinius now you can make it into a vanguard.

Read both of your posts. I love my black knights, and they can do melee if necessary, but I've had bad luck getting them in too close to dedicated melee units. I think wulfen or thunderwolf cav could probably do a that a little better, but they do have the same issue of closing distance which BA have an easier on time with. A careful investigation by the Society for Psychical Research in said of the first-hand testimony, "We have received none at all, and of testimony at second-hand we have none that would justify us in assuming the occurrence of any supernormal phenomenon". The SPR went on to say the stories relating to battlefield "visions" which circulated during the spring and summer of , "prove on investigation to be founded on mere rumour, and cannot be traced to any authoritative source.
The sudden spread of the rumours in the spring of , six months after the events and Machen's story was published, is also puzzling. The stories published then often attribute their sources to anonymous British officers. The latest and most detailed examination of the Mons story by David Clarke suggests these men may have been part of a covert attempt by military intelligence to spread morale-boosting propaganda and disinformation. As it was a time of Allied problems with the Lusitania sinking, Zeppelin attacks and failure to achieve a breakthrough on the Western Front, the timing would make military sense.
Some of the stories conveniently claimed that sources could not be revealed for security reasons. The only real evidence of visions from actual named serving soldiers provided during the debate stated that they saw visions of phantom cavalrymen, not angels or bowmen, and this occurred during the retreat rather than at the battle itself. Furthermore, these visions did not intervene to attack or deter German forces, a crucial element in Machen's story and in the later tales of angels.
Since during the retreat many troops were exhausted and had not slept properly for days, such visions could be hallucinations. According to the conclusion of the most detailed study of the event it seems that Machen's story provided the genesis for the vast majority of the tales.
The stories themselves certainly boosted morale on the home front, as popular enthusiasm was dying down in and they demonstrate the usefulness of religion in wartime. After the war the story continued to be frequently repeated but no evidence to support the claim that the angels existed was ever given by those who were there.

However it appears from examination of his original letters he wrote those entries after the war and falsified the dates. He made little money from the story then or later. The sudden revival of interest in appearances of angels from the s onwards, especially in the United States, not only amongst Christians, but those interested in the New Age , has caused uncritical accounts of the story of the angels who saved the British Army to be regularly published in books and magazines.
Similarly, the story is also often used by sceptics as a good example of how believers in the supernatural can become convinced of fantastic things by slender evidence. The Friends of Arthur Machen frequently publish articles on developments in the case. In , an article in The Sunday Times claimed that a diary, film and photographic evidence proving the existence of the Angels of Mons from a World War I soldier named William Doidge had been found.
The article discussed a long involved story in which Doidge was involved with an American GI and an angel seen years later in Woodchester Mansion. Other papers like Variety and the Los Angeles Times and television programmes soon followed up the story and a website connected to the mystery became very popular. The footage was supposedly found in a trunk in an antique shop by Danny Sullivan in Monmouth , close to Machen's birthplace of Caerleon. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
