the internet seems to be full of people whining about how ridiculously over powered and utterly invincible the Doom of the Malan'tai is.

in my experience it is a powerful adversary but it is not stupidly over the top and it is definitely not invincible.

I have played against it at least ten times and it has yet to survive a game.


even when maxed out it is toughness 4 with 10 wounds and a 3+ save. so it is no more difficult to kill than a squad of space marines.

I bought The First Heretic (TFH) at Games Day and read it on the coach back. It's a strong performance and I'd rate it as one of the best of the Horus Heresy books to date. In places I would rate it as equal to or above Horus Rising. In his blog, Mr ABD makes a reference to the difficulty of topping Dan Abnett's introduction of Horus. In my opinion, the confrontation between Lorgar, Gulliman and the Emperor is easily on a par, possibly exceeding it for emotional impact.

Occasionally, there are times when I am forced to take a long hard look at myself and my relationship with our glorious hobby. The latest of these came, after shelling out a hefty sum on a new Skaven army. This was sparked by the realisation that if I was to get hold of the new Warhammer rules, I’d rather get a bunch of nice minatures rather than a rulebook that could be used as a bludgeoning weapon and which would be made obsolete in about four years time. I then had sudden flashbacks to my poor neglected Imperial Guard army, which has still yet to see the light of day.
