    Since the Orlocks don't come out till February I figured I'd run a league. This is a narrative driven campaign running Dec 10 to Feb 24. I'll put up at territory tracking map with territory markers, so all you simply have to do is schedule a game with a rival, fight, and move the territory marker from them to you (if one changes hands). We'll keep it abstract so anyone can fight anyone. Just keep your fights out of the the settlement of Spyder's Sump, and be careful around the Adeptus Arbites Blockhouse. There will be weekly special events held at the Ordo Clubhouse on Sundays, and bonus loot drops for those who meet hobby goals and bring snacks on Sundays! Fight for survival, power, or just for kicks!

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw

    Just re-watched The Force Awakwns for the first time since seeing it in the theater in anticipation of Ep 8 on Thursday. It actually held held up really well and I found myself enjoying the new characters more than I had remembered. The pacing was solid despite the occasionally clunky dialogue. Most importantly, it was fun. Which was made it feel like Star Wars to me. Cannot wait for The Last Jedi.

    kb10r - Daemon Build Blog

    Hello, I'm starting up this blog to organize my build of a Warhammer 40k Daemon army. Some of this is to have a place to store the thinking behind my decisions so I can look at it in the future and mock my poorly thought out ideas. Some of this is to give myself a "fun" way to not let this project stall out. Some of this is to give a venue for others to comment on my build and give guidance on my process... read at your own risk. Part 1: Why Daemons I have three and a half armies sitting around my house: Chaos Space Marines: My first army ( Never forget ) and one I have had a lot of fun playing. I have some bad memories, as their codex has really gone crazy over the last few editions. Blood Angels: I have a lot of BA in boxes and I want to have a heavy jump pack army, but who knows what their 8th codex will look like. Chaos Daemons: My last army I played a lot of. Random, mostly in a good way. Chaos Guard: I really liked "the Lost and the Damned" army; big guns and mutants. But Daemons still a couple of things that I want to have fun with: Universal invulnerable saves: with all the AP updates in 8th edition and the weakness of cover, this sounds good. Fine close combat: CC appears to be really deadly now, so having something that can combat against elite units is good. Good movement: Lots of fly and no reason not to advance gives them some speed. I have many stupid looking models. ( maybe the last models that are actually flipping people off? ) But they suck at: NO transports, so you are walking around everywhere. No deep strike; The "summon" thing is dumb; just don't start. Maybe when their codex comes out this will all get better. Terrible anti-armor: Come on... this really sucks, but at least we have a fast moving unit that eats into STARSHIPS! Oh they can't even kill a rhino now.. wow. Relatively easy to counter. ( Flyers; a whole army MADE to kill them; snipers; Assassins; Big things; gun lines ) Against an all comers list, daemons will be fun, but it doesn't take much to counter them. Let's do it.

    Craft retreat goodness

    So Menucha hosted another Scrap and Sew retreat this past weekend. My wife happened to be hosting this one and had a spot open for me to go. I love these things. Sure, I was the only guy there, but I had a whole weekend for working on my models. We pulled in around 2pm on Friday, got fed at 7pm, and went to bed some time around 10. Next morning, breakfast at 8am, lunch at noon, and dinner at 6pm. Sunday was breakfast and lunch as well. As I said, I was the only guy there, but the ladies were all real nice and some came over to check out the models. They were all pretty amazed at the details and I got no judgement whatsoever. Also, my wife was scrap booking at the table right across from me. No kids, no chores, no cooking. I just got to play with my models for the whole weekend. The one thing I did hear often was that it would be great to have more guys show up. So while the event is called Scrap and Sew, they are completely open to other indoor craft activities. I had a whole 3x6 table to myself, and an LED lamp was made available. I brought my Tau that had been sitting in boxes for several years and pretty much put together an entire force. The next one they are going to have is going to be in March. If anyone is interested in going, toss me a PM and I can get details for you when it is available. I think the price for this one was around $250. But considering you are getting a work area, two nights stay, and six meals, it really isn't that bad. And you also don't have to stay the entire time, so price is flexible. I think for the one in march I will leave the boxes at home and just bring some models to paint.

    Yes! I will be submitting my proposal to once again act as HoG for 40K! I am sure this news will excite some and frighten others :) I encourage anyone else interested in doing to also submit a proposal. Please know that I hold no advantage in the selection process....in fact, there is a good chance Khan rolled his eyes when I told him I was thinking about applying again this year. :) Whether it be 40K, or another game you are passionate about, think about taking the next step and getting involved in running something at OFCC!

    What a great Saturday! I had a blast at Rampage as always! The food was good, the company was even better. I'm not sure how I even ended with this giant sword, but I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to play this mind-bender of a game, and the opportunity to play with 4 fantastic people. @Twinmasks, hopefully we will continue our friendly feud next month! @Justjokin, it was great to meet you, I hope to see you again very soon. @Jay, a pleasure as always, and your chili was a delight! @Zelaponeepus (I think this is Erik), It was great to play with you again, your army looks amazing! For me, Raindog's Rampage was the perfect bookend to my first year playing Infinity. The 4 games played at last years event were the my first full games of Infinity. I learned a lot then, and I learned a lot this time around too. Let's dig into some thoughts. 1. With the retreat rules not being in effect, there were absolutely no consequences to an overly effective alpha strike. Out of 4 games, I went first 3 times and each time was able to more or less neuter opposing forces with my Fraacta and Makreep, and then complete the objectives at leisure. In ITS games I'll have to be much more careful. 2. Daturazi were amazing as always. Smoke+MSV2 is mean. 3. Cube Jager was very good for me, I really liked having the walk on specialist, although he did kill a civilian, but that more on the civilian than the paramedic. 4. Have I mentioned how much I liked Erik's models, they looked awesome! 5. I took M-Drones to be able to try some stuff that I don't normally use, like sensor. But even when presented with opportunities to use them (I knew something was in hidden deployment), I forgot. Oh well, next time. 6. I got a lot more use out of coordinate orders than I usually do. When playing the unidron link, I tend to save them for reforming the link and rerolling engineering rolls. I was really able to leverage extra movement and suppression fire this time around. 7. Obvious LT Nexus Hacker continues his streak of like 15 games of not getting killed. I'm probably getting overly confident at this point. Finally, I declare 2018 the Year of the Monkey! That's right, I'm shelving Onyx for a bit and will be fielding Morats in the coming year (maybe with a little vanilla CA sprinkled in for good measure, I am digging the new Avatar and the Charontid render looks way better to me than the current one). I'm excited to play a more in your face style of game, with lots of movement and CC. It looks like I'll be able to make the January Adversary ITS. 200 pts, Limited Insertion, with Capture and Protect, Tic-Tac-Toe and Acquisition. This looks like a challenging but fun mix. Thoughts are a list with fast units and AD for C&P, and a more specialist heavy list of for the other two. We'll see in the coming weeks what I come up with.

    Blood Angels Coming

    Deep striking land raiders were the dumbest part of 5th edition blood Angeles. A thunderhawk (that has taken a vow of pacifism, I guess) just drops the land raider off and leaves before anyone notices? So, so dumb. I hope that rule never comes back.

    Dark Angels Preview

    Posted 03/12/2017 Coming Soon: The Hunt Begins Anew Next weekend, another First Founding Chapter of Space Marines will be brought fully into the Dark Millennium with new units, commanders and a codex. We are of course referring to the Dark Angels – a Chapter steeped deeply in mystery, betrayal, and vengeance. The codex is absolutely packed with units never-before-available to the Dark Angels. Of course, you’ll be able to make use of the Primaris Space Marines, as well as following the story of how they were integrated into this famously suspicious and mistrustful Chapter. However, you’ll also be able to take advantage of units previously only available to more Codex compliant Space Marines. The Deathwing can finally be equipped with mighty relics from the Horus Heresy like Cataphractii and Tartaros armour, while you can destroy your enemy’s aircraft with the Hunter and Stalker tanks. This isn’t just a book for gamers – for players who love the narrative of the Dark Angels, even the Stratagems are dripping with thematic flavour. Did you know, for example, that you can now represent the ritual duel fought by Dark Angels and Space Wolves champions before they fight together with The Lion and the Wolf Stratagem? If you’re bringing your existing Dark Angels army into the new era, there’s a range of new kits designed to help you do that. As well as Lieutenant Zakariah, you’ll be able to pick up the Dark Angels Primaris Upgrades and a range of boxed units that come with them in the box, helping you tie your Primaris units to the rest of your collection. Our favourite piece is the hand resting on the Calibanite power sword, conveying the easy gravitas of the sons of the Lion. If you’re looking to find out more, we’ll be discussing the new codex in detail right here on Warhammer Community, as well as on Warhammer TV, next week – in the meantime, let us know what you’re looking forward to most on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page.

    I usually don't complain about models prices. I think the last models I whined about were plastic Witch Elves. I'll probably continue to whine about having to fork over what I consider to be "too much money" for rules that I need in order to use the models. Buddy and I were looking at starting up LOTR Battle Companies. A $30 rule book? Ok, seems reasonable. But you need the $85 Hobbit book first. And the $28 faction book. So you're kinda locked behind a $143 "rules wall" before you even spend money on miniatures. Instead of doing that, I'll probably just spend my cash elseware. I sold some minis recently and have $200 of disposable cash; I'd rather that got me $200 worth of minis, instead of $150 worth of rules and $50 worth of toys.

    Okay Rampagers,I made the player's pack today. It will be in reverse order as in: Check List, Then it will start with page 4, then 3, 2, and 1. That mean players will flip to the back and start with that scenario. When the game is done, they can tear it from the pack and give it to me. We will be tracking crits for the the Wooden Spoon. Scoring Sheet 3 will have the vote for favorite food, drink, and models. Scoring Sheet 4 will have the vote for favorite opponent.

    I thought it was an effective portrait of the character that didn't pull punches... the use of cheek pouches felt like a silly homage to old cop shows... get shot in the shoulder and blood comes out of your mouth for some reason. I was slightly bothered by some of the PTSD scenes. I'm not sure what the appropriate degree of realism/seriousness is for a comic book adaptation. It was effective in terms of advancing the story but it felt rather exploitative. Something felt wrong about depicting flashbacks and suicidal depression in a film that revolved around revenge and bordered on gore porn. Maybe I'm over thinking it. Still, I feel like the mini series format is far-and-away superior to the summer blockbuster movie in terms of exploring these characters. It was put together pretty well.

    Blood Angels Coming

    Chapter Focus: The Blood Angels The Blood Angels are among the most distinct of the Space Marine Chapters, and their new codex reflects this with a vast suite of new rules, units, Stratagems and more designed to reflect the fast-paced, aggressive style of war favoured by the sons of Sanguinius. Firstly, Blood Angels are fittingly blessed with a melee-focused army wide special rule, the Red Thirst: The Red Thirst gives all Blood Angels units +1 to wound when they charge, are charged or make a Heroic Intervention. With the new wound roll chart, this makes getting 2+ to wound that much easier, as well as helping your smaller units damage even your enemies’ toughest monsters and vehicles with ease. Just imagine a unit of Reivers dropping in with this! All Blood Angels successors use the Red Thirst and other Blood Angels rules too – as if Gabriel Seth needed to get even deadlier… The Blood Angels codex is also absolutely packed with new units. As you’d expect, Blood Angels now have access to the entire Primaris Space Marines arsenal, but what you might not know is that this codex also broadens the Blood Angels range of traditional Space Marines weapons and units. You’ll now be able to escort your flyers into battle alongside the Stormhawk Interceptor, transport scouts into the heart of battle aboard Land Speeder Storms, or unleash the might of ancient technologies from the Horus Heresy, like the Contemptor Dreadnought as well as Cataphractii and Tartaros pattern Terminators. As you’d expect, there are loads of Stratagems to use with your Blood Angels army. These have been designed to open up new and thematic ways to structure and use your army. Death Visions of Sanguinius, for instance, lets you give one Captain, Lieutenant or Chaplain the dubious blessings of the Black Rage: Strike of the Archangels is great for gunning down squads of massed infantry, and is especially deadly if you make the charge on the turn you arrive. Upon Wings of Fire is a great way to grab an objective at the last minute, pull an at-risk squad out of combat or get a particularly deadly unit into position for a devastating charge. There are new psychic powers, too. You may remember Wings of Sanguinius from the previous edition. This power is back and just as dangerous as it was before when used with the Librarian Dreadnought. Indeed, Librarian Dreadnoughts, and the rest of your characters, are now eligible for many powerful Warlord Traits and Relics. Artisan of War is a superb way to build deadly characters, and combined with a Primaris Captain can give you an auto bolt rifle that does 3 damage a shot! Gift of Foresight, on the other hand, provides some extra durability: For Relics, you’ll be able to choose between lethal, master-crafted weapons of the Chapter and more tactical options. We love the Veritas Vitae, providing you with a great way to maximise your Command Points, while the Standard of Sacrifice combined with the Sanguinary Ancient to create a fantastic lynchpin for the rest of your forces. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the Blood Angels or you’re looking for a new army, the new codex has something for you. You’ll be able to pre-order your copy this Saturday. If you’re still hungry to learn more, worry not – we’ll be taking a look at the new units in the new codex later in the week, while if you’ve got any questions or want to see some more rules previews there’s an in-depth preview on Warhammer Live on Friday at 5:00 pm on Twitch.
