Daemon update schedule for February 2013

Most of you have already head that Dark Angels are getting a new codex in January 2013 (announced in the December 2012 White Dwarf).  We've heard continued confirmation that a Daemons update is coming out for February.

Nothing has changed though from what I have heard, that it will be a White Dwarf insert, instead of a codex/ armybook release. So that is what we have ahead of us, and here is Hastings with a few words on it.

Flamers of Tzeentch - OP?

Flamer's of Tzeentch - painted by me

The reaction I've been getting of late is absolute fear or loathing of my flamers.  Among the myriad screams of "Daemons are OP" the two data points people use to express their frustration with my army is Fateweaver and my Flamers.  I'll discuss the king chicken in another thread, but I'm starting to agree that the Flamer is a really good value.

Rumors about The Hobbit in December

Not exactly daemon rumors, or even 40K content, but The Hobbit is my all time favorite novel.  In fact, I just finished reading it to my six year old daughter, who loved it!

We've got the first confirmation that The Hobbit sets are definitely coming soon. We all knew they were inevitable, but stores (My local one, and several others Accra's the North West that I know of) have now been told as of Saturday, to pull all Mines of Moria starter sets, and several other items from shelves...

As we know, this only happens when new sets are due soon... So.. speculations as to whats coming... or if anyone cares, can start now. Chances are White Dwarf leak will be seen before December...

Team Championship rules for 6E

Paying homage to ATC/ETC my local "club" in Elk Grove, CA and another group about 45 minutes south in Stockton, CA decided to get together for an ATC lite.  However, upon looking for rules, it seems that everything published still references 5E rules, so Tim Trammel and I set about revising what we'd seen for 6E.

Our event will be held on December 1, 2012 at Heroes on Paper in Stockton, CA.  Tentative rules per my initial discussion with Tim are as follows and subject to revision by both teams in the next week.
