One of the most disruptive new releases of modern 40k, Codex Imperial Knights ushered in a new era of titanhammer and redefined the concept of the 'standard' game to include elements previously only seen within the safe confines of Apocalypse. This infamous codex has now been re-released for 7th Ed, with lots of new content and ways to literally Stomp your enemies into submission. Let's take a detailed look at the new book and how it will fit into the current state of the game.

The new Eldar book has hit the streets, so it's time to delve deep and see what the Craftworlds can do. I will try to minimise excessive comparisons between old and new books, and stay future-focussed. Here we go!

Our next reader request army list is MSU Harlequins with Craftworlders. I want to design a list that employs lots of distributed S6 weapons, Leadership debuff shenanigans, and a handful of D weapons to deal with hard targets. Time to get creative with the Space Elf Clowns!

In my post about MSU army list design, Elite 40,000 reader Adam requested a MSU army list for Adepta Sororitas (a.k.a. Sisters of Battle) that can compete in 7th Ed. Ask and ye shall receive, here we go!

The MSU (Multiple Small Unit) approach to army list design was commonly understood and widely employed many years ago in the latter half of 5th Ed. It fell out of favour in 6th Ed, but strangely has not resurged in 7th Ed—even though it naturally synergises with Maelstrom missions and counters 'titanhammer' very nicely. With Codex Eldar Craftworlds sparking a new wave of D weapon proliferation, I expect MSU to quickly regain its rightful place as king of army list paradigms—if enough players understand how, and why, to do it.
