Regardless, a midst the swirling chaos of the warp, I have decided to take a look at the more prominent members of the dark ranks. The Cult Legions of the Chaos Space Marines. Everyone knows the fluff behind these guys, but what I am interested in right now is how they compare with each other. Nothing here should sway you away from using them in a themed list should you desire. But with the fascination with Nurgle Marines being the current flavor, I wanted to take a look at all four and really see what each cult has to offer, and which I think wins the favor as greatest among equals.
WARNING: the following is based completely on my views as a player, and I recognize bias is ever an issue with opinion/observation-based articles. As such, take all that you read with a colossal size grain of naturally occurring, flavor enhancing crystal.

That said, the Wolves have all but disappeared from the 40k scene, and I really can't understand why. Given the current state of the game, to me these guys are a perfect fit for the direction the game seems to have gone, and have honestly held up in their age far better than most of their Astartes Brethren had before their updates. But, lets get into some of the finer points that make up the Lupine Sons of Russ.

Welcome back to the podcast! All four of us are putting our heads together and looking at 6th edition after the past 18 months. We talk about Knights, and what is and isn't working for us with things on the whole. Also, included in our opening, is a copy of the home game (we all know what we do during these kinds of speeches!). Be sure to play along and enjoy a few hours with all of us.

Welcome back to another Critique Corner. While browsing the interwebz, I came across an email containing another list. There must be something compelling about the Space Marine Codex because so far it seems to be the only real focus of the Critique Corner. Perhaps there is something within that particular tomb of infinite wisdom that has people so invested in developing their skills with it. That said, it is probably has the broadest spectrum of list possibilities and widest-spread player base for a codex. I'll note having seen several lists from it that, top-tier lists not withstanding, the lists are pretty diverse and each unique from another. This list is no different... in that it is very different.
Today's list comes from Piero Manchego-Badiola. He is running a 1,500 point list out of Codex: Space Marines, using Ultramarines successors for his Chapter Tactics.
