    Ali ikely never, unless I start playing more than 1 game of Flames of War a year!
  2. 8/15 Warhamster Game Night

    Awesome! 2k works great for me. Prepare to be snuck up on and murdered by gigantic genetically-engineered power-armour wearing post-human ninjas.
  3. OFCC Discount Terrain-a-palooza!!!!

    Just a bump to say there are only a couple of days left on this sale. Get it while the getting is cheap(er)!
  4. 8/15 Warhamster Game Night

    I'm still on a Raven Guard kick. Anyone want to play some 8th ed 40k?
  5. Chapter Approved is coming back

    Oh! Good call. 33.3*83.3 + 66.7*16.7 = 38.9% chance for the disadvantaged player to get first turn. 39 to 61. Seizing the initiative is still stupid in this context.
  6. Chapter Approved is coming back

    Close enough. 44 / 56.
  7. Chapter Approved is coming back

    A player at a -1 has a 33% chance of first turn on the roll-off, and, if they fail, a 17% chance of seizing. It actually works out to about a 55.6% chance of failure. Which is close enough to a coin-flip to make it stupid. GW needs a very well-paid statistician on staff. I volunteer myself. P(A) or P(B) = P(A) + P(B) . P(A) & P(B) = P(A) * P(B) For someone at a disadvantage, we want the probability that they initially succeed (33.3%) or the probability that they initially fail (66.7%) and subsequently seize the initiative (16.7%). 33.3 + 66.7 * 16.7 = 44.4% chance of first turn. Rather than a noteworthy advantage to the opponent done first, that's close enough to a coin-flip for horse-shoes, hand grenades, or statistics.
  8. Fantasy Terrain

    I'm more than a bit biased, but if you have the scratch, Worldsmith Industries makes a damn fine product. Plus, they're currently having a sale for Ordo members. See links in signature! Also, 4Ground makes a fantastic product. Great company!
  9. Mortarion...

    Hmmm.... not a fan. Though, ill reserve final judgement for better pictures. The books always emphasize Mortarion's gauntness. I expected to see that replicated here, rather than just another bloated Nurgle Daemon Prince. I always pictured something more like the C'tan model with the scythe.
  10. Chapter Approved is coming back

    While I have enjoyed reliably getting to go first with my Raven Guard (much to the horror of my opponents), the +1 to go first instead of auto-first is the right call for the game. Seize the initiative seems a bit redundant in that context, however. First, roll-off to determine first turn. Then, roll again!
  11. Chaos and GK Codexes Coming

    I just re-read Deliverance Lost, so the sting of giving Alpha Legion the exact same Tactic and Stratagem as Raven Guard is particularly apropos.
  12. Chaos and GK Codexes Coming

    Hmmm... some cool stuff, but I'm a bit disappointed that a chunk of the renegade chapter tactics and the like are identical to some of the loyalist ones. It makes the individual chapters less unique. I'd rather the renegade tactics be different, but equally cool. For example, they made the Alpha Legion basically a bad-guy Raven Guard instead of making them the cultist-horde insurgents they've been in the past. There's some cool stuff, for sure, but I was hoping for more variety.
  13. Ughhhhhh

    Flew into SeaTac last night. It smelled like crap and made my throat burn. Glad to be back in B'ham. While hazy, it's breathable. The combo of the heat and the smoke must be brutal.
  14. 8/8 - Warhamsters Game Night!

    Are you coming up to B'ham, Brick? Or did you inadvertently post in the wrong Game Night thread?
  15. 8/8 - Warhamsters Game Night!

    Sounds great! If you could do 2000, that'd be great. Otherwise, just let me know what point value works for you. If you'd like to borrow models from me, you're welcome to do so.
