  1. 40K 8th ed, Battle Forged, Power Level and Points

    But I'm lazy. Plus I can print out the data sheets and use them as unit cards, so I can build an army for casual games on the fly with worrying about every little detail. Old Epic was that way and it works great. In a competitive setting points are the way to go. I like the flexibility of having both methods.

    Should I ever play with Dusldorf? ---> No
  3. 40K 8th ed, Battle Forged, Power Level and Points

    So power level or points? I'd like to give power level a whirl.

    Isn't Battleforged when you use 1 or more detachments to structure your army? They do give the option to have no structure "put whatever you want" on the table, but not battleforged and it's more for the the models are just cool crowd
  5. Scotty paints Primaris Marines

    So I've got some NuMarines. I was originally planning on painting them Iron Hands so I could swap vehicles back and forth between my 30K force and this one, but black is boring. I honestly would like to do something with some tonal quality. I would really like to keep them very shooty, as my Orks and Space Wolves are in your face forces. I've kicked around a few ideas: Raptors- Shooty, cool Raven Guard rules, would paint them OD green/historical with a WWII style vibe. May look boring on the table. Imperial Fists- I'd go more of a military yellow than canary, nice bright army but lousy chapter rules. Heresy era Death Guard- totally different, light grey/green with battle damage, just use Ultramarines rules, maybe a different chapter symbol? Heresy Color Space Wolves- not blue/grey, but a warmer grey, use FW transfers and SW bits, think of them more of an adjuct to Great Wolf company. Another Badab War chapter- Fire angels or Minotaurs Something else entirely... Anybody got any ideas?
  6. Mortarion...

    This is very old Realms of chaos lore. One of the "tasks" of plaguebearers was to catalog and count all the diseases, in real time. They would count out loud, and the bass murmur lent a droning noise to an army on the march. This counting, or tallying, lent a nickname to the plaguebearers, the "Tallymen of Nurgle". AoS has a Nurgle warscroll called a Tallyband of Nurgle. Nice to see the entropic task of counting germs is being revisited.
  7. Gauging Interest in an AoS Army Grow league

  11. Ordo Fanaticus July Hobby Progress Challenge!

    No. It's a painting challenge.
  12. Pre posting this as I will be out of town Aug 1. Please post your projects on the appropriate month. In an effort to combat the scourge that is Grey Plastic we shall band together and contribute to the Ordo Fanaticus 2017 Hobby Progress Challenge! Let's keep this simple shall we? Each month reply to this thread with your stated miniature hobby painting commitment. The goal is a painted unit per month. Ex: "I will assemble and paint this box of Space Marines" "I will paint this assembled Chariot I bought off eBay" Include a dated picture of the project you intend to finish. A description doesn't qualify. When you have completed said stated goal, post a dated picture of the completed commitment, quoting the original post. If you finish early, start another project, but be warned, the deadline for the project is the end of the month in which it is started. Not 30 days from posting. Those members that have completed their stated monthly goal will be placed in a raffle, from which I will draw a winner. I will send the winner a prize. At the end of the year the member that has completed the most goals win a better prize. In the case of a tie the members will be placed in a raffle, from which I will draw a winner. Remember to quote your original post so progress for the month may be easily verified. Failure to do so will DISQUALIFY the entry. Valid projects: 10+ infantry figures 3+ medium sized models (siege machines, killa kans, ogres, etc) 1+ large model (Vehicle, big monster, etc) Don't be a tool and post stuff you've already done. This is on the honor system. Go! Challenge begins now!
  13. Attached is the OFCC 2017 Friday Night Kill Team event packet. OFCC2017FridayNightKillTeam.pdf
  14. For this event refer to the old versions of units to determine the limitations, as Kill Team was written for that ruleset.
  15. I had made a decision... The Friday Night Kill team event will be using the 8th Edition rules, although we will still use the 7th ed Leadership stat for Morale, . Still build your force using Matched Play points using the newest rules for your force. As far as rules tweaks, there will be none at this time and we will address them as they come up during play. This is a non-competitive event, and a such we can make allowances.
