    LVO Previews

    Posted 08/02/2019 Las Vegas Open Warhammer Preview At the time of writing, the Warhammer preview seminar at the Las Vegas Open (one of the world’s largest Warhammer events) is just drawing to a close and, oh boy, was it a good one. I know we say this every time, but this might just be the coolest line up of reveals and previews yet! If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry, we have all the news for you, right here… The new edition of Age of Sigmar brought a lot of new tricks to the game, and soon, more armies than ever will be able to take full advantage of them – 2019 will see new battletomes for every Grand Alliance! Some brand-new armies will be joining the fray, as well as classic armies updated for the new edition. With Gloomspite Gitz already on shelves, and Flesh-eater Courts and Skaven on their way, we look ahead to the next battletome: Blades of Khorne. The servants of the Blood God are about to get a lot more lethal. Inside the new battletome, you’ll find ways to customise your Khorne army as never before, with rules for dedicating your collection to a variety of Khornate sub-factions. What’s more, Khorne armies can look forward to even more new models, hot on the heels of Wrath and Rapture last year, with a redesigned Skulltaker… …and a host of summoned Khornate phenomena. Don’t call them “endless spells” – you’ll just make the Blood God angry. Instead, these are pure manifestations of Khorne’s wrath, brought into being by the brutal clamour of war and, of course, the copious spilling of blood. The Next Chapter in the Soul Wars One of the great things about Warhammer Age of Sigmar is the rich, evolving narrative. The background for the Mortal Realms is growing all the time, with the past few years having taken us through the epic battles of the Realmgate Wars, through the fledgling conquests of the Seeds of Hope, to last year’s Soul Wars. This tectonic shift in the status quo saw Nagash rise to supremacy, the emergence of the Nighthaunt, and Sigmar forced to open the Sacrosanct Chamber. Now, in 2019, the Soul Wars continue – and something ancient and terrible is awakened… Answer the Call of Chaos That’s not all. Later this year, we’ll be taking you to the darkest heart of the Mortal Realms – beyond death, beyond Sigmar and beyond sanity. Get ready to play Warhammer Age of Sigmar as you’ve never seen it before, in a new game that draws on some of the best bits of Warhammer Underworlds and Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team… The Allpoints await – are you worthy? Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault, continues to go from strength-to-strength, with each new release adding exciting new game mechanics and stunning new models. Ylthari’s Guardians encapsulate the mercurial beauty of the Sylvaneth. Based on the Spite-Revenants and Tree-Revenants, these mystical guardians feature design elements from across the entire Sylvaneth range, making for a characterful group. But that’s not all they are… Ylthari’s Guardians feature a distinct play style that takes everything you love about the Sylvaneth – durability, flexibility and magical power – and translates it perfectly into the intense, competitive scale offered by Warhammer Underworlds. If you’re looking to turn over a new leaf and fancy branching* out into a new warband, this is the one for you! You know who we’ve not seen a lot of lately? The Black Legion. Since the events of the Gathering Storm and the fall of the Cadian Gate, we know that these ebon-clad villains are rampaging across the galaxy, spreading carnage throughout the Imperium Nihilus. So far, they have been obscured by the darkness beyond the Great Rift – but now, they have finally reached Vigilus. We’ll give you a moment. This is a big one. Shadowspear is a new battlebox. Like Forgebane, Tooth and Claw and Wake the Dead, you’ll find two armies, ready to fight. But there’s a twist – every single model in the box is a brand-new sculpt. Inside, you’ll find the Chaos miniatures you’ve always wanted, updated and adorned with dark and gothic detail, and pitted against them are the first of the Primaris Vanguard Space Marines. The Vanguard Space Marines add a new tool to the arsenal of the Adeptus Astartes. Trained in covert operations, these ruthless killers operate behind enemy lines as saboteurs, assassins and infiltrators. While the Intercessors and Tactical Squads execute their wars out in the open, these guys fight in the shadows – and they fight dirty. Vanguard Space Marine Librarians sometimes lead these strike forces. They are masters of shrouding and stealth, allowing their battle-brothers to strike at enemy forces when they’re least expected… Eliminators are dead-eye snipers. From concealed positions, these expert marksmen target and take out key enemy leaders, utilising a range of exotic and deadly ammunition tailored to their target. No heretic lord or xenos commander is safe. In the Chaos forces, the Master of Possessions is a sinister sorcerer versed in the forbidden art of using hosts of living flesh to house daemonic spirits. Armed with an array of spells that aid Daemonic allies and corrupt his enemies, the Master of Possessions is a terrifying force on the battlefield. Chaos Space Marines are one of the most iconic Warhammer 40,000 units, and the models in Shadowspear bring them to life in all the warp-spawned majesty they deserve. Clad in baroque armour and armed with vicious weapons, these dynamic and detailed miniatures perfectly capture the look of Heretic Astartes fresh from a 10,000-year stint in the Eye of Terror and ready to carve up some loyalist dogs. You may have seen Obliterators before, but not like this! Bigger, bulkier and packing more firepower than ever, these hulking brutes are festooned with grisly biomechanical detail. They look right at home in the company of even the most corrupt of daemon-forged war machines. Speaking of which… A new class of Daemon Engine, the Venomcrawler is a skittering horror that provides withering infernal fire support. This thing is so saturated in the taint of the Warp that its presence thins the veil of reality itself, allowing Daemons easier access to realspace. Incredible, right? Well, guess what – this isn’t even everything in the box. Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait too much longer to see what else the new Shadowspear box has in store: everything will be revealed soon here on warhammer-community.com. Back in 2017 (how time flies…) we asked you for your thoughts on the Warhammer hobby and gave you the chance to help shape the years ahead. The Big Community survey was a huge success, with over 100,000 of you sharing your thoughts and opinions. A year and some on and a whole host of things from your wish list are now a reality: the StormCast and VoxCast podcasts, webcomics like Roll Models, more articles every day, and, of course, who could forget plastic Sisters of Battle?! Your voice made a difference, and very soon, you’ll again have your chance to have a say with the 2019 Big Community Survey. Together, we’ll usher in even more great initiatives and continue to make the Warhammer hobby the most awesome-est. Perhaps the most hotly anticipated item from the 2017 survey was the Sisters of Battle. We know just how much you’re looking forward to the new Adepta Sororitas, and so we’re happy to confirm that Codex: Adepta Sororitas is still on track (and looking more than a little great so far). We promised we’d keep you up to date every step of the way, and so far, we have, with previews and even the chance to playtest the rules yourself. Continuing in that vein, we’re very excited to announce the Battle Sister Bulletin, a regular series – right here on warhammer-community.com – that’ll be packed with previews and insights until they arrive. Think of it as your one-stop shop for the very latest on the Adeptus Soritas. Look out for the first Battle Sister Bulletin within the next couple of weeks. Oh, and to further reward your faith while you wait, here’s a first look at another incredible new Sisters of Battle model. Tonight’s preview wasn’t all about heroes on the tabletop. We also took the opportunity to name this year’s lineup of Warhammer Heroes – those champions of the Warhammer hobby nominated by you, the community, for the good work they’ve done within the Warhammer community and for noble causes around the globe. Amongst this year’s nominations were some truly inspirational stories, and we’re delighted today to unveil those who went above and beyond and truly earned the title of Warhammer Hero. Thanks again to all of you who sent in your nominations. We’ll share more on some of these inspiring stories soon. And One More Thing… So, we’ve got new Sisters of Battle, incredible plastic Chaos Space Marines, brand-new Primaris units, battletomes, Warhammer Underworlds warbands – but it feels like something is missing… Well, it wouldn’t be a reveal without a new Primaris Lieutenant, would it? He’s coming. Get ready. Let us know what you’re looking forward to most on the Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook pages – and stay tuned for more news soon right here. *We’re sort of sorry for this one. But only a little.

    Played three games at the last game night. I think its already a staple. Good for when you are waiting for an opponent to arrive. The premise is pretty simple. You draw some number of colored tiles from platters in a community pool. All tiles drawn on a turn must be the same color and from the same platter or from the extra pile in the center. Tiles fill rows on your play card which, in turn fill squares on a grid for scoring. Tiles that overflow the row are scored in the negative. Scoring tiles cannot be adjacent to the same color. From what I can tell the strategy has less to do with maximizing personal score, though you do want to do this and more to do with sabotaging your opponents. Since drawing tiles is mandatory and you must always draw the maximum number of tiles from the color of your choice a smart opponent will take the opportunity to force negative points. There is a sweet spot about halfway through the game where opportunities to do this present them self. It seems possible to employ card counting techniques with the tiles but I didn't play enough games to get that far. It's definitely important to watch your opponents and try to predict what kinds of bonuses they are trying to achieve. You can often force the issue by leaving moves open that are a net gain in points but are marginalized by penalties such that the best move available is a low scoring move. You can also force moves that are negative points but this seems more like a case of luck. It's often possible on the very last round. I especially like the visual aesthetic. It's among the most elegant games I've played recently. I could totally see making a custom version out of clay at some point.

    CANCELLED, due to weather and driving conditions. Sorry, but the weather is not cooperating for this event. Due to the weather forecast for my area for Friday evening and Saturday morning: snow, ice and freezing rain, I will not be going to Guardian Games on Saturday, FEB 9. This is the event I was going to run: Ambuscade! 3 SESSION 1 (11:00 a.m.) TABLE 😄 Tank Collision at Prokhorovka (James B.) My plan is to run this same multi-player Flames-of-War event at GameStorm,on Sunday, MAR 31, 2019.

    Sure it would. Grots at 9.01" away after da jump, boyz/stormboyz at 9.1" away after deepstrike

    Wouldn't the grots have to be the closest target for that to work? Wouldn't it be more practical to charge with the grots, let them lose models in the charge, lock the enemy, and then not have any overwatch for a second unit? Plus that wouldn't cost any CP.

    Sorry I haven't got back to this sooner. Not even any real reason, I've just been a space cadet this week. Anyhow, I've got five of those and five of the holstered version, so that should set you up pretty well. Stuff I'm looking for is fairly limited. The outside cover from the right side Hurricane Bolter sponson of a Storm Raven. Female heads from the new GSC kits that are about to come out. Other GSC bits, possibly. Perhaps some Dark Eldar bits for a Kill Team I'm working on. A couple of Tomb Kings skeleton warriors. Or maybe just a couple of bucks plus shipping.

    Looking for an Infinity combi rifle

    That's a boarding shotgun. Fairly certain it's from the kuang shi set. I appreciate the offer, but I bet there's a nerd somewhere out there without enough shotguns. And that's a crying shame.

    New Skaven and FEC - Carrion Empire

    Carrion Empire and the Flesh-eater Courts battletome will be available to pre-order in mere hours! To tide you over while you wait, we’ve got one more preview – a closer look at the Endless Spells of the Flesh-eater Courts, plus the Charnel Throne scenery piece… The Endless Spells aren’t just useful for Flesh-eater Courts armies – they’re also great for any Death army that contains Nagash, who, as befits the God of Death, can cast all of them. Cadaverous Barricade What’s better than a wall? Why, a wailing barricade of corpses, of course! This horrific bulwark is great for slowing down your foes or lending your units some cover against enemy shooting. Chalice of Ushoran The Chalice of Ushoran is a cunning Endless Spell that’ll allow you to turn dead enemies into replacement Crypt Ghouls, or just heal your favourite units. Cast it on the front lines to considerably improve your army’s survivability. Corpsemare Stampede The Corpsemare Stampede excels at dealing mortal wounds to squishy units. Thanks to its ability to move an impressive 14″, it’s more than capable of riding roughshod over several enemy units at once. The Charnel Throne A Charnel Throne can be included in any Flesh-eater Courts army and costs no matched play points – like the Herdstone, or Bad Moon Loonshrine, it’s a core part of any army. On the battlefield, it’ll bolster the courage of your troops, reduce the Bravery of your enemies, and allow you to save your valuable command points when summoning. The Endless Spells and Charnel Throne will be available to pre-order tomorrow – in the meantime, let us know how you’ll be using them in your games on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook page!

    Rate the last series/season you saw (TV)

    Just wrapped up She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Series 1). Yes, I watched the whole dang thing during slow periods at work (mostly my graveyard shift) and I gotta say it was pretty good... The show is definitely targeted at the "girls under 10" demographic, but unlike most shows targeting that demo actually has a lot of action-adventure elements, some genuinely spooky bits, and some very complicated character motivations. I was born in 1981, making me a prime target for the original Masters of the Universe toyline, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and She-Ra: Princess of Power shows pretty much every day from preschool until first or second grade. I tried to re-watch them about 15-20 years ago, and yikes were they a lot better better in my hazy memories then they were in reality. This reboot is a heckuva lot more watchable. The basic themes and motifs of the original She-Ra is here in the reboot (minus any reference at all to He-Man, apart from Adora's power-up cry of "For the honor of Greyskull!") its a rainbow colored fantasy land with dashes of sci-fi technology, and it's all about self-esteem, believing in yourself, and the magic of friendship. Interestingly enough, it uses those same themes to motivate the villains just as much as it does the heroes. There's really some seriously good writing for main trio of baddies: Catra, Scorpia, and Person Not Named Because It Is a Major Spoiler. I don't think I've seen villains written this well in an American children cartoon since the Paul Dini/Bruce Timm Batman: The Animated Series. It's a fun show... I'm not sure if its one I would recommend to other adults for solo viewing. But if you've got a daughter or a niece in the target demo, it's certain more fun for an adult to watch this with them than it would be most other shows targeting young girls.

    Guardian Cup will have room for about 42 people if we have 3 under 21 players show up. For example. There will also be 1-2 tables overflow available in Critical Sip IF we have more than 36 players show up.

    Necromunda Consensus?

    What I've said in the beginning of this thread continues to apply... I have not gotten enough reps in with the compilation books to find much in the way of changes. If you are nitpicking you can continue to find gw type issues but overall I love it so much! More focus on fighters and equipment than the building of individual fighters through experience but everything starts more lethal so quicker to get into mid campaign levels of previous systems (necromunda or mordhiem) so feels solid to play never way behind nor really ahead so far...

    Too much speed can also introduce vibration that jerk and acceleration control can't compensate for, causing the chassis to jar as the print head slams around. This will also affect print quality.
