Tactics of the Diseased Sons

It is now 2024 and the 10th Edition is the current edition. I am actually getting to play every now and then but I am still learning the rules and adapting my vintage army to the modern rules. The rules also change quarterly or annually as Games Workshop attempts to maintain some semblance of balance. I haven't really given much thought to the meta or what is trendy and cool. In fact I am taking the road less traveled as I am remaining with my army the Diseased Sons, who were the Chosen Sons of Mortarion in 9th Edition, but now will return to their true roots and become Irony Warriors of Nurgle and use the Fellhammer Seige-Host detatchment.

Plans of course change but given how slow I paint and our desire to use the 10th Edition Crusade rules after the moderate success of our 9th Edition Crusade it is best to stick with a plan no matter how flawed so you can at least get some models painted you already paid for. I still plan to paint models I bought or were given over twenty years ago. So you can follow my miniature painting and gaming exploits over on WordPress using the links above.

If you want to get an idea how I play the game of Warhammer 40,000 I have written up numerous battle reports. My old tactical advice was written for previous versions of the Chaos Codex and previous versions of Warhammer 40,000. Normally I don't like busted links and I was content to let my old articles on army selection and ingame strategy just die, but then I got it in my head to update the old HTML behind this website, I guess that is what passes for post-game strategizing these days.
