    Who'd play H'Orks (as in Horde Orks)

    I've only played one game of 8th yet (and I don't even have my models assembled enough to play another) so take this with a pound of salt, but after playing with Orks for many years prior to quitting 40k last time, I never got any grief for running green tides, nor have I ever given anyone any. As long as you're not in a tournament (which is the perspective I'm coming from, as a Filthy Casual) then the golden rule applies; don't be a douche. Be considerate of your opponent's time, use the aforementioned preparations, etc. Personally, I don't give a damn if you take a little longer on your turn as long as you can tell a good joke or two in the process. The game is about having fun, and that's not just about what's going down on the tabletop. Be considerate, be fun, and let the pieces fall where they may.

    New Book - Third Offensive

    Huh. Single wound HI outside of Ariadna. Who'da thunk it? And the new fireteam options for SAA really shake things up (a machinist with mimetism? Whaaaaat?) Pity they put the model production on hold. Not that I'm in a position to lay into buying them right now, of course.

    Warhamster Autumn Mordheim Campaign

    That I do. Consequently, did you want to grab a game of Mordheim? Since I have recently come into a collection of suitable Viking Northmen and picked up a Werewolf, I will be going with Norse Explorers, ready to raid, trade, and evade.

    H: Blood Bowl Goblins W: $ or Space Marines

    Got a picture? Thanks.
  8. I have a four pack of Blood Bowl goblins, the new one, still in shrink wrap. $10 or best offer, or offer me something non-primaris SM stuff that I could use for my growing Crimson Fists (I already have Kantor.)

    ISO hurricane bolter bits

    That's fair, although if we want to be pedantic, I hadn't offered anything in return when you offered the bits, which is kinda dickish, too. 😛 Regardless, I'll see what I can dig up to add to the bits bin.

    ISO hurricane bolter bits

    I had offered without asking for anything, so asking now, right before the hand off, would be kinda mean. That said, you could bring some random bits to add to the WOW bits bin in my name. I'd call that a fair trade. In anycase, no, you are not expected to have any trade.

    Ogres have layers.

    ISO hurricane bolter bits

    I intend to be there as well. Not certain if I'll stick around and play anything, but I'll definitely be there to pick the bits up. You want anything in trade?

    Who'd play H'Orks (as in Horde Orks)

    I’ve always been fond of both WH40k’s Space Orks and WHFB’s Orcs, but never collected them simply because painting so damn many models was not something I wanted to attempt. Which was why I was really taken with AoS’s Ironjawz army, which takes the standard orc aesthic and playstyle, but matches it to an “elite army” list. (The three rank and file troops work out to be approximately 16 Points, 28 Points, or 36 Points per man.) I’ve often wondered if an Ironjawz-like design philosophy could work for a Space Orks subfaction.

    Camelot Unchained

    I looked at it before I went to Mexico (so 18+ months ago).... It may be done before I die. It will probably be done before Star Citizen but not much before.
  18. Hey Everyone - We're running our first Infinity tournament at Dark Tower next Sunday 10/28. This is more or less a combination capstone event for the league and preparation event for the big tournament I'm running down in Seattle on 11/10-11/11 (The Emerald City Incursion MkII). It would be awesome if you guys from the league came to play/check it out. Infinity tournaments are inherently fairly relaxed, so don't stress too much about a "competitive environment". There's an event set up on facebook, but since a good chunk of you guys don't use it, here you go:
  19. This is a good opportunity to discuss how one finds opponents to play. SCHEDULING GAMES Typically, campaign players begin trickling in to Dark Tower shortly after 5 pm on Tuesdays (this includes me). The next wave (ripple) typically shows up shortly after 6 pm and the last of the arrivals typically get there around 7 pm. Players generally pair up on a first come first serve basis, and if everyone is paired up by the time the last person shows up, the late arrival doesn't get a game. After a week or two of this, 'late arriver' gives up on the campaign. This isn't how it has to be. If you plan to show up later in the evening, say 6:30 pm or 7 pm, I recommend that you proactively reach out to other players via phone, text, PM, or this thread, and try to reserve a game. Below is a list of players who have stated that they want to participate in the campaign. Please note, that if you are not on this list, you aren't excluded from the campaign. Anyone can join at any time. I've highlighted the names of players who either showed up last week or indicated that they will show up tonight. If you want to reserve a game, these folks are your best bet. If your regular schedule prohibits you from showing up early, PM me your normal ETA and I will put it next to your name. This way others with similar ETAs will know who to reach out to. Of course, campaign games aren't restricted to Tuesday nights. If you can find a player who wants to play on a different day or hour, feel free to schedule a game with him.

    Who'd play H'Orks (as in Horde Orks)

    I would welcome the opportunity to kill that many orks, but I would hate to face a slow player. Kudos to Fluger for knowing how to play orks without wasting time.

    Who'd play H'Orks (as in Horde Orks)

    The large amount of regular Boyz required in an Ork army is why I started playing an all Mega Armored Nobz force (Grots don't count). Then, once I had that ready to go on the table, the Green Tide lists really came into contention. However, I just don't want to move that many models around and have a re-play of my experiences as an Ork player back in 3rd Edition of showing up for a game and spending the next two hours putting my models away. The one force I truly enjoyed playing was the Speed Freek list from Codex: Armageddon because I had all my Troops slots filled with Skorcha Buggies so I never even had to roll dice to hit. I'm hoping the new Ork Codex has more than One True Path to victory, because for me Horde Orks aren't what I'm willing to play on a regular basis.

    Who'd play H'Orks (as in Horde Orks)

    Regarding this army specifically, I don't think you have a handle on orks if you think this is a horde. If you think of 30 boyz as 10 marines, then imagine a horde of marines and how many boyz that would be. Your list seems pretty average for ork army size. Rough equivalents, you have 20 assault marines, 10 tactical marines, 15 veterans (sternguard or vanguard), 5 devastators, 6 bikes, 3 attack bikes, 5 scouts, a rhino, a dread, and a land raider. Oh, and a couple of techmarines, with plans to add some librarians. It's a good force, but it's not a horde. Not sure what the necron equivalents are. 30 shoota boys really do have the equivalent of 10 tactical marines. You get way more shots with the boyz, but only 1/3 shots hit under normal circumstances, and only 1/6 will make their armor saves when shot or sliced. Orks will win in melee, but that depends on the ork ability to deny armor/the marine ability to make saves (power klaws and marine players that can't roll 3+ make a big difference for orks in melee). If you go ork hordes, should definitely get some grots...also, Storm Boyz are a good ork horde alternative to boyz in a trukk. Regarding infantry hordes, If you keep the target "quality" about the same throughout the army, it will help muddle the opponent's weaponry. With your list, you've given clear targets for the opponent's anti-tank and anti-infantry weapons, which will work against you if the opponent has a mix of both weapon options (which is standard for list creation). A horde army would ideally focus on just having the infantry which would make a mockery of the opponent's anti-tank weapons. Things like lascannons are mostly useless if the opposing army is all orks in t-shirts.

    Rate the last series/season you saw (TV)

    For that, and many other reasons. That show had problems. Maybe we'll get a better version another time, but I'm glad to hear that particular Iron Fist show is done.

    Rate the last series/season you saw (TV)

    I liked Grim...it did go off the rails a bit here and there, but mostly a solid show. First season it was definitely trying to find itself a bit, so hang in there. Iron Fist - cancelled by Netflix - honestly, after seeing Danny Rand shoot the Iron Fist power through guns, I'm not all that disappointed.

    KILL TEAM: Week 4, Mission 4: Man the comms!

    Basically it happens before movement, at the start of the phase. The rule only says remain stationary, so I suppose you could ready as it fits in that rule. So RAW is that way. I had intended it to replace your movement option (like your busy during movement phase). That would be RAI. You can decide with you opponent, I'd be ok either way as long as both players played it the same. You can shoot as normal after movement phase.

    KILL TEAM: Week 4, Mission 4: Man the comms!

    So for clarity, does the model making the com station give up their movement, their turn, or are they just unable to move during their turn? Like, can I ready to shoot while building the com station since readying doesn't require moving (despite it being used instead of moving)? Or am I unable to shoot because I'm focusing on making a com station?
