  1. Past hour
  2. Hey, I sold you those blue, grey and gold ships! Wanna trade them for unpainted versions?
  3. Oh? That's cool.
  4. What did you just call me?
  5. WHO: You, foo'!!! Bring yo' posse. WHAT: 2000 point 8th Edition Warhammer 40,000 kick off partay. 3 color minimum. $15 entry fee. WHERE: Olympic Cards and Comics (where all the action is) 4230 Pacific Ave SE, Lacey, WA 98503 360-459-7721 WHEN: It's in the title. We drop dice at 11:00 AM on July 1 2017, which means you need your PRINTED LIST and your CASH MONEY turned in long before then. My suggestion? 10:00 AM if you want to ensure your spot and get that sweet sweet extra deployment time. WHY: because your addiction is real, mang. You gotta' have you some of that 40K, bruh. Thought you knew! Some important Deets: 1. Didn't bring a printed list? No gaming for you. Recent events have forced us to be hard about that. Write it out or print it out, but your opponent needs to see it without having to handle your expensive electronics, or ferreting through the idiosyncrasies of a dozen list building programs. 8th Edition is going to be new to everyone and the easier you make it on your opponent, the better your sportsmanship score will be. 2. We cannot know what the missions will be like yet, and so we will be fluid on the subject of what missions we will use and would ask you to be as well. 2. Scoring. Your scores will include sportsmanship as a component. The system is simple in a yes or no format Measuring Correctly: were they generally attempting to be accurate in measuring, given it can never be perfect? Rules: Were Explanations offered politely when asked for, given that rules this new do need some noodling? Dice Discipline: Did they generally make sure you knew when they were rolling for something and what it was for; and did they give you adequate time to view the final dice results? Slow Play: Was your opponent playing fast enough to finish the game to a clear conclusion (even if the game did not technically end, the conclusion may be obvious and therefore to a clear conclusion)? Schedule: We are going to put Games Workshops claims to the test and see if a game can indeed be played within 2 hours at 2,000 points. 10:00 Registration begins 10:30 Pregame announcement and Tables are assigned. Deployment may be done but do not start until 11:00 11:00 Dice Drop 1:00 round 1 ends. Situate your models so they can be checked for painting AND THEN go to lunch. 2:00 round 2 Begins 4:00 Round 2 ends. 4:15 Round 3 begins 6:15 round 3 ends. 6:30 Prizes are awarded and much shopping occurs for all.
  6. I'm really hoping this weekend I will get some quality BFG organization time in....
  7. I just wanted to remind people of this upcoming event. It should be a fun event with people of all different skill levels. I can carpool people down to the event as well (I am in the SE Portland area), just let me know. I would love to see you all there! https://www.bestcoastpairings.com/eventlanding/ltkxh0bw https://www.facebook.com/events/1332606776805336/?acontext={"ref"%3A"4"%2C"action_history"%3A"null"}
  8. Malifaux yay! And Dan check your site emails... I want that mug you owe me, you thieving Canadian!
  9. Today
  10. Joseph, I have a snow mat which would work well with your snow terrain...
  11. The Rule book will have fluff (story), core rules for the game, rules for matched play, narrative play, Detachment rules, missions, etc. The Indexes will have all of the datasheets for the units of each army, broken up into 5 books. Later on we will get codexes that will have faction bonuses, other detachments, and may or may not have updated datasheets.
  12. So my take is the free rules will actually be great for matched play, and power level. Narrative will want all the extra. It will be the base rules free, the book had missions and other war zone type things... the sky, trenches, cities oh my!
  13. You guys doing 8th for this?
  14. The General's Handbook had points, but it didn't have unit profiles. Maybe the faction books will have both. I don't know.
  15. on this topic, are all of the new marines in this box Primaris big boys or only the captain? If they are all Primaris then I probably want to get some Marines. Not sure if I'll play 40k again but the models are cool.
  16. What he said.
  17. Fair enough, as said I've only been poking through this thread recently, and there's a lot of info to sort through... I'm sure I'll end up picking the starter set up, since I like print rule books with fluff and awesome art, and I think the models are pretty great. Looking forward to cracking open some beers and stumbling through a game!
  18. Beefaroni if you want the Space Marines let me know and I will take the nurgle stuff off of you.
  19. So far other than mentioning free rules, there hasn't been a lot of detail about them ....
  20. Looks like I am going to get a box. If anyone wants the nurgle portion let me know. I am willing to trade it or sell it.
  21. Isn't that what the Index are for, to supply you with the points? You'll have to forgive me, as I didn't get into AoS, but I thought the core rules were the same, and the General's Handbook simply introduced points for everything, isn't that what we're looking at with the rules vs the Indices? Or am I way off here?
  22. From the release article: And rules. Lots of rules. All the rules you need to wage the bloodiest of wars in the far future. Alongside the core rules for the game, there are missions, full guidelines for the 3 ways to play (open, narrative and matched) and advanced rules to represent the myriad war zones of the far future, including all the rules you need to play games of Cities of Death, Planetstrike, Stronghold Assault and Death from the Skies.
  23. the addiction is real.
  24. Dang. It looks like the only update we are going to get today about the new edition is going to be about Forge World stuff. :(
  25. Easy, they weren't $25 for the past 5 years, they were $50
  26. ...or maybe they just include Cities of Death, Terrain rules, Stronghold assault stuff and other extraneous but important information but all the "how to play" rules are free for normal matched play and otherwise. I dont think they would exclude matched play from the free rules. Thats just my take on it.
