Second entry in the Soul Reapers Batt Rep contest


With the contest almost finished, Neil and Pat from the 11th company take the Soul Reapers for a successful outing on the tabletop!

Neil used a very interesting Titus, Praetorian list.

Just like the first entry from Carl of the Independent Characters this was another down and dirty Slobberknocker of a game.



Thanks for the support guys! The contest officially ends on the 30th at midnight PST.

Part 2 of the 11th Company Soul Reapers Codex review


This weeks episode 65 of the 11th company has part 2 of the Soul Reapers Codex review. They cover the Troops selections of the Soul Reapers.

I want to elaborate on the 8 man squad for weapons options. It's a fluff thing, since the Soul Reapers worship chaos as a whole, the 8 man squad represents the power imbued by the Chaos star which has eight points. The Soul Reapers believe that having one marine to represent each point of the star gains them the favor and protection of the Dark gods.

Now this fluff idea ended up making for the great in game options that the guys mentioned. It was a side effect of the fluff, because at the time I wrote it I did not have game-play in my mind at all. It's strange how things work out sometimes. I had also thought about making the eight man squad the full size, but decided to leave the option for larger squads.


The review has been pretty positive, it's also nice seeing the Soul Reapers through the competitive gamers viewpoint.

Up next time they should be covering Elites and Fast Attack.

Small Soul Reapers Codex update


I have made a few adjustments to the Soul Reapers Codex due to feedback I have been receiving, they are as follows.

Xusia the Apostle of Malevolence is 265 points. This was my fault as I lost my original working document when I was updating the codex format. I was working off an older version of the doc and forgot to update his points cost. His stats are as follows.

Xusia the Master of Malevolence
WS 6 BS 5 S 5 T4 W 3 I 5 A 3 LD 10 Save 2+

The Usurper Bodyguard should be Initiative 4 not 5

The Harbinger of Malice has a points increase to 60 points, again my error after changing his abilities.

The codex link has been updated with a new version of the PDF.

The 11th Company launch a multi part review of the Soul Reapers


This weeks episode 63 of the 11th company heralds the beginning of a new segment focused on what we are doing over at The Codex Project.

They have just started a review of the Soul Reapers fandex. Covering the Army wide special rules and Wargear of the Soul Reapers. I appreciate the honesty of the review so far, and the fact they are doing it from a competitive viewpoint.


Next time they will be looking at the Soul Reapers Psychic powers and moving into the army list in some fashion.
