    New Guy

    Hi everyone, I'm new with the Ohio group. I figured I would post some of my first models.

    He has returned...

    Posted 05/03/2019 Abaddon Revealed 80 days ago, we made a promise* – that Vigilus would belong to the Warmaster. You’ve speculated, you’ve gazed into the depths of madness with the Daemon Engine and you’ve clamoured for more news on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page. At last, the countdown is over. Take a look at this: That’s right – Abaddon the Despoiler is BACK. As the observant among you may have guessed, when we teased a new Primaris Lieutenant back at the LVO, we weren’t being entirely serious…** Abaddon is an integral part of Warhammer history – the star of countless books, campaigns and tabletop battles, this legendary overlord is perhaps second only to the Emperor as an icon of the 41st Millennium, and he definitely gets out more. The Warmaster has been one of the chief architects of the Imperium’s current woes, and it’s only fitting that he returns now with a new model. The original Abaddon miniature was a classic, and in this new model you can see the inspiration from Jes Goodwin’s iconic designs. The Talon of Horus is every inch the barbaric and intimidating weapon that killed Sanguinius, while the screaming, twisting form of Drach’nyen is brought to life as never before. Even among the twisted arsenal of the Heretic Astartes, these implements of war stand out as truly terrifying. This incarnation of Abaddon is also a lot bigger, standing nearly as tall as a Primarch, towering over other Chaos Space Marines and making for an instantly eye-catching addition to any collection. This model draws from decades of art and lore to provide a definitive, rich representation of an iconic character. No detail has been spared in this kit, with every armour piece replete with rivets, battle damage and barding that speaks to the Warmaster’s millennia at war. We know that Abaddon means different things to different fans. Ask one person, and they’ll tell you about Abaddon the arch-traitor, a devoted servant of the Chaos Gods who seeks only to destroy and despoil. Ask another, and they’ll tell you about Abaddon the visionary, the liberator – the charismatic lord of a recast brotherhood. You’ll be able to customise the model to fit how you see Abaddon the Despoiler, with a choice of three heads. One, snarling and wrenched with fury, cleaves closely to the classic representation of the character. Another, wrought in the visage of Horus, pays homage to his dark heritage. A final head depicts Abaddon with a respirator, giving him a brutal, impersonal feel, tying him to the masked, savage warriors he leads in battle. Abaddon’s cloak is also optional, giving you yet another way to personalise your model. Of course, Abaddon’s return is bad news for Vigilus – and he will be released alongside the thrilling finale to the Imperium Nihilus series, Vigilus Ablaze… Vigilus Ablaze Vigilus now stands on the precipice of annihilation, as the war for control over the Nachmund Gauntlet enters its next phase. Chaos has arrived in force on Vigilus, spearheaded by the Black Legion itself. Hardened by millennia of relentless combat and fresh from blood-soaked subjugations in the Imperium Nihilus, they are a force of nightmares, combining the ancient might of the Space Marine Legions with unspeakable and unholy gifts. Where the previous Imperium Nihilus book focused on the varied forces of the War of Beasts, Vigilus Ablaze is all about Chaos, bringing to life the vast and myriad forces gathered to annihilate this once-impregnable world. A wealth of rules content will expand your options for Chaos armies enormously, with Specialist Detachments, new datasheets and more. Perhaps you’ll strike from the skies with a pack of Raptors led by Haarken Worldclaimer – or crush your foes beneath a clanking tide of hell-forged metal with hunting packs of Daemon Engines. Shadowspear and Abaddon are the start of a bold new era for Chaos. As those of you who’ve been following the Daemon Engine might have guessed, there’s an army of new models waiting to be revealed, including some things you’ve never seen before and new takes on units you know and love – like this guy. What’s this Havoc carrying? Looks like the Warpsmiths have been cooking up some new guns. Emperor, help us all… Stay tuned! Over the next few weeks, we’ll be guiding you through the best set of releases for Chaos Space Marines ever with regular in-depth previews right here. If you’re now looking to start a Black Legion army (and who could blame you?), make sure to pre-order Shadowspear this weekend, which will give you the core of your new Heretic Astartes force! * Well, technically, it was Haarken Worldclaimer. ** Though he does come with an unfortunate loyalist victim on his base.

    Hey all! I am the captain of team Kill! Maim! Beer!, and we are looking for two players to fill out our roster for this year's 40k team event. Perks of joining our team include (but are not limited to): one KMB branded pint glass, an undisclosed quantity of free beer and/or whiskey, solid (but not impeccable) team paint scores, and the opportunity to game with @Gorgosaurusrex and I (we may be twins, but I swear we are different people). An ideal candidate will have some or all of these desired qualifications: takes a laid-back approach to playing 40k (values having a good time more than winning), likes beer (not mandatory), and... well, that's it. Bonus points if you bring an army with snow bases, which will match ours! I will be bringing my World Eaters army and Greg will likely field his Valhallans, in case you were wondering. If you are interested in applying for the position, please submit your resume and cover letter either as a post here or a PM (kidding, but that would be funny). Cheers!

    PLEASE NOTE: This is Version 1 of the Guide and it may change as we get closer to the event Welcome to the 2019 OFCC 40K Team Event Players Guide! (as of 3/12/2019) This post will outline everything you need to know to play in this year's 40K Team event. This is a 2 day, 5 round event on August 17th and 18th. As you read through this guide, you will notice that this event is not referred to as a tournament. OFCC is about focusing on the experience and not the outcome. There is nothing wrong with wanting to perform well and to celebrate victory, but if that is your sole motivator for playing at OFCC then you may be disappointed. The Basics: This a team event and it requires every player to be a member of a team in order to participate If you are new to Ordo or new to OFCC this can feel like a pretty big barrier, but there are several options available to you Join an existing team As players come and go from our hobby and our area, we have existing teams looking to fill opening with new players These connections are normally made through the Ordo forums, but can also be done through the Ordo Facebook group Watch for posts and/or start a post and make your interest known Start a new team Due to the popularity of the event, we are regularly adding new teams of players to join us annually Taking the initiative to join other interested players to form a new team is a great way to dive into the OFCC experience with both feet Offer to play as a ringer If you are not ready to make the commitment to join an existing team or start a new one and would just like to check out OFCC, maybe offering to be a ringer would be a better fit Ringers are standby players who are available to fill in due to absence or illness during the event weekend Although there is no guarantee of play, many times ringers have an opportunity get a game or two in over the weekend If anyone is interested in playing and doesn't know where to start, you can always reach out to me via email or PM Team Requirements: The team size is 4 players One team member must be designated as the Captain Due to the added responsibility required of being a team captain, players must be approved to become a team captain Approval can be through forum post, PM, or email A list of all teams and their approved captains will posted publicly and updated regularly Becoming a Captain: For returning captain's, the approval process will be little more than a formality as they are generally familiar with the duties and responsibilities required for that role For new captains, the approval process is not designed to serve a gate to restrict your access to the event but rather an opportunity to prepare you to be successful in that role and ensure you want to take on the additional responsibility Any player looking to become a captain for their team can contact me via email, PM, or through the dedicated post that will be started shortly after this guide is published Captain's Responsibilities: Team Captains are the true heroes of OFCC, and greatly contribute to what makes this event a success. Team Captains will be asked to: Submit a Team Roster by email or PM containing the following details as they receive them: Review the team's army lists and have them submitted on time Remind their team to purchase their event tickets Ensure the team meets OFCC painting and basing minimums Educate new players about the spirit of OFCC Determine player matches during the event Review scoring sheets and report game results during the event List Rating and Matches: There will be no list rating this year, but captains are expected to review and submit lists prior to the event Once again this will be a Team vs Team competition, with Captains determining the match ups each round Also, Teams will have the ability to prearrange Challenge Matches for each of their games on Saturday (3 in total) Challenge Matches: Challenge matches are optional, and not required for play on Saturday All challenge matches must be prearranged by 8/1/2018 Both Captains must agree to the challenge match After 8/1, challenge matches cannot be changed Challenge matches must be arranged through the Captain's forum, via email, or by sending me a PM Challenge matches must be confirmed by me before they will be scheduled, do not assume it is been scheduled until you receive your confirmation A list of all confirmed challenge matches will be publicly posted List Building Restrictions: OFCC is about celebrating our hobby, demonstrating good sportsmanship, and playing fun games. Players are encouraged to bring armies that reinforce those values. This event is designed to encourage and reward players who embrace the experience. The army size must be no more than 2,000 points It can include any 40K units from any number of 40K approved Games Workshop or Forgeworld sources The maximum number of detachments your army can contain is 4 The number of times each datasheet can be included is 4 (6 for Troops) List Building Guidance: Over the years, OFCC has taken many approaches to list construction. We have used rating systems, review processes, unit restrictions, and list building guidelines with varying degrees of success. All of these systems were used to serve a common purpose, which was to foster an environment where every player had their best chance to play 5 great games. This year, I will outline a few things to avoid when building your lists for OFCC. Baring the near countless special abilities present in the units across the 40K universe, most things can be boiled down to their lethality and durability. When you compare the damage dealt or taken versus their points cost, you will develop a sense of how lethal or durable they are in comparison to other units in your army and, with enough experience, their overall effectiveness in the larger universe. It is not a bad thing to want to make good choices for your army or play with the best units, the problem is when those choices are taken to the extreme. When that happens then there is little room for casual or friendly play. Enough preaching, here is the actual outline: It is okay to take effective units from your Codex, but avoid maximizing those choices Extremely lethal or extremely durable units can be unpopular, use with caution Building a force that dominates one phase of the game will always be tough on your opponent Take advantage of the relative safety of the OFCC gaming environment to make diverse and unique choices for your army. Between Captain's match ups and challenges rounds, it would be hard to find a better place to bring something crazy and different. Captains will be asked to review list from their team and will be encouraged to post that list on the Captain's forum to review with their peers. Event Specific Rules: This event will use the Games Workshop 8th Edition 40K rules and the Games Workshop official FAQ documents Some beta rules are under consideration and this section will be updated if they are allowed in the event UPDATE - The beta Adeptus Custodes rules from Forgeworld have been approved for use If there is something specific you would like to be considered, please ask What to Bring: Your painted and based army (see Painting and Basing Requirements) Dice Tape measure A printed copy of your army list A good attitude and desire to have fun Painting and Basing Requirements: All models within OFCC armies must be fully painted and based Painting must include 3+ colors Effort must be made to transform or replace the bare plastic base Models that fail to meet the event minimum cannot be used during the event Models, Counts As and WYSIWYG: Games Workshop models are not required for this event Alternate models should reflect the same scale as the Games Workshop equivalent Weapon upgrades and certain model specific wargear should be represented on the equipped model It is impossible to outline all the examples, so here is a good rule to follow If a unit would be impacted by the removal of something equipped to a specific model (banner, special weapon, etc.) then it must be represented Proxies are not allowed in the 40K Team Event A proxy is a placeholder when you don't have an appropriate model to use Counts As armies are allowed during the 40K event with the following guidelines: Effort must be made to represent the model/unit in question Representation must be consistent across the army It is the responsibility of the player who bring a Counts As army to inform their opponent early and often about what is being represented Any specific questions or additional guidance should be directed to me Awards: The Team Based Awards available this year will be: Best Painted Best Spirit Marshall Johnson Award (Best Sportsman) Best Overall Best Overall will be calculated from 40% Sports, 25% Painting, 30% Spirit, and 5% Captain Achievements The list of Captain Achievements will be published prior to the event Note: Although we do not award a Best General, we do track battle scores and use them to break ties in all award categories Also, the bonus award Roll For Initiative will earned by the first fully paid 40K team Missions: The Mission Pack will be published on June 1st and will contain all 5 of the OFCC 40K Missions. Event Scoring by Category: Each team will have the ability to earn points in each scoring category (Paint, Spirit, Sports) before the event AND during the event. The total points scored will determine team's position in each category and contribute to calculating the scores for Best Overall. Pre-Event Scoring: Each player/army that achieves one of the below items will score 1 point per completion. If all players on a team achieve the same item they will receive a bonus point.

    No, back to the attitude stuff. It's important. That's the key, the key I think you're missing. Not once in any post about OFCC have you mentioned a model looking cool, or being fun to play against. You've mentioned comparing power levels, you've mentioned generalship and list making. These are all great things to think about but they're not what OFCC is here for. It's a different beast. It's focused on the other side of the table. Is this fun to play against in a casual setting? Is this a cool model you don't offten see because it's not super optimised? I'm not calling you out and I don't want you to feel singled out. I'm just re-stating what this whole shebang is for. It's for fun, it's for inclusion. Are the choices you're making increasing that inclusion or decreasing it?

    Did you miss me?

    Hey, Ordo, nice to see you again! It's been years since I dusted off my Blood Angels for some play. I went and bought the 8th edition book, and the BA Codex. I have a few beginner questions: 1) is there any place to play anymore in south King County? I think there is still one GW store left, the one in Kent? 2) are BA's any good in the current game? Does everything have to be allied detachments to be competitive or can a "pure" BA list do OK? 3) How critical are Command Points? How many would you expect to need at 1000 pts? 1750? 2000? 4) I think I can squeeze a brigade force org into 2000 pts if I minimize some squad sizes. Is that a strategy that people use these days to maximize CP's? 5) Any "must have" units or combinations? I read about something called the Slamguinius that looked amusing. Carl (Rafi) has promised me a game in the near future for a practice run. We'll see how THAT turns out. What was that rule you were talking about? BS, that was 3rd edition. Cheater! Cheese master! Wham! Smack! Thanks guys, Kevin

    Update time! I now have the components to build two more copies of tile #1, and have moved on to designing a new tile layout. First, I needed to upscale one of the other storage tanks from the set. The larger tank has been scaled to 164% of the original Why 164%? I wanted it scale it to the other tank and used the integrated ladder for reference Speaking of scaling, I don't this little tank provides enough cover: This is much better! Picture for scale:

    Ordo Boardo! The OFCC Board Game Challenge Do you have what it takes to bring it on the player mat? Can you defeat your opponents with your best Meeple placement? Will your dice rolls bring you glory before all? Find out at this year’s Ordo Boardo: OFCC’s Board Game Challenge!  When: OFCC 2019, Saturday, August 17th  Where: The Hilton in Downtown Vancouver Number of Players: 24 Cost: $20 Number of rounds: 3 Schedule: Round 1: 9:30am - 12:30pm Lunch: 12:30pm - 1:30pm Round 2: 1:30pm - 4:30pm Round 3: 4:30pm - 7:30pm The Nitty Gritty: The Ordo Boardo is designed to test your skills with cardboard and meeples. Players will play three games during the day out of a possible six games listed. You won't play the same games twice. Instead, there will be six, four person stations each with its own board game, and you will be assigned to a station each round. Round one will have random assignments, followed by table assignments based off of TP (Tournament Points). TP will be rewarded based off performance as follows: First- 5 TP Second- 3 TP Third- 1 TP Fourth- 0 TP If there is a tie between two players for the top three spots the first deciding factor will be differential between a game the tied players both played (example: if both players played game X whoever did better in defeating their opponents will be declared the winner). However, if the two tied players have not played a similar game then it will go to a Sudden Death round in which the players will battle in a short game of my choosing! The Games: This list is currently TBA, but rest assured it will be finalized before the begging of May. I am working on finding a list of games that are still in print, easy to get a hold of, popular, and fun. All the games that will be included are adversarial games playable to 4 players. I will be personally vetting each game before it is added to the list. IMPORTANT: I want to give everyone plenty of time to familiarize themselves with the games on this list. The expectation for the players is that you will have an understanding of the rules for EACH GAME ON THE LIST. I will be there for rules clarification only. Please do not come to this event and expect a rules explanation for each of the games. I will link every game to its BGG page, a video of how to play the game (and if there isn’t a video I will make one), and a sponsored store who has a copy of the game on their demo shelves. It is on the players to make sure they know how to play the game before the day of the event, both for their own enjoyment and for the enjoyment of everyone participating. Awards: The top three players will be given awards according to their placement: 1st, 2nd, 3rd (More on this TBA) Prizes: To be announced at a later time, but what we have planned should be pretty awesome! The Ordo Boardo- We bring the cardboard, you bring your game! PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS HERE!

    Doesn't sound like you'd enjoy it. Sounds like you don't understand what OFCC offers. It's not about denying what's fun for you, it's a out denying what others can't deal with a majority of the time. You don't get squat for winning all 5 of your games, that's the point. If anything consider list toning for next time or if your opponents liked you so much they want a rematch. I own 12 destroyers, yet only bring one squad of 6. Why, because I know point for point they're super strong at erasing vehicles. I know you enjoy ITC and more competitive environments. This is not that venue. OFCC offers something unique. As Hanaur said there's a lot less restriction than you think. Just be aware your not bringing an LVO leaf blower list to OFCC and you'd be fine. One last thing, attitude is what makes OFCC. Laugh, giggle, fart, just don't get stressed, don't get mad at yourself or your opponents and you'll fit right in. I always find beer and pretzels is what I enjoy at OFCC. Don't get me wrong I'll play to my best general abilities, just toning my list down offers a challenge too.

    Michelle Startt and I have some crazy news to share with everyone. As of Wednesday 4/3/2019, we no longer own Guardian Games. So many thanks needs to go out to all of the staff, customers, and community who helped us play the most rewarding game ever (owning a game store). It feels fantastic to walk away a winner! While we are no longer owners, we will still be eternally proud of our 'creation', and hope that you will continue to support it as it evolves to the next step with the new owner. All of our wonderful staff are still on board. And I'll continue to do everything in my power to ensure their success and happiness. I love them very, very much! Please remind them how much you appreciate them too! For those of you who want to know why, the answer is simple. We were presented with an opportunity that felt foolish to pass up. The amount of businesses that are successful enough to outright sell is very low, and it's much, much lower in the gaming industry. Selling Guardian Games is a proverbial 'checkmate' in this industry. What's next for us? Michelle Startt will continue to be the rock star architect she's always been. And looks forward to being able to devote much more time and energy to her team at work. I can't resist the urge to buy/sell goods. It's been my destiny since I was a kid, buying a pack of candy and selling them individually for a profit on the school yard. So I'll transfer my hobbies, passions, and energies to some other things. LEGO, video games, action figures, collectibles, costuming, etc. Just the internet and conventions for now. Maybe a small store front or some consignment/partnerships in the future. And with all my new found free-time I plan to volunteer more for things I'm passionate about. Especially the local gaming and pop-culture conventions. I want to play more games, and am especially looking forward to some D&D. Now I can do my part to foster the friendships and relationships that Guardian Games has been so generous in providing me. Most of those relationships have been one-sided, and I'm very excited to be able to reciprocate the love and devotion you all have given me. I'll tag until my 'clicker' gives out lol. Tagged or not, I love and appreciate you, and can't wait to see you on the 'other' side of the counter!

    WTB Space Marines starter army

    So my nephew is looking to get into Marines instead. You convinced me that Tau or Guard are not good starters. Looking for anything! Even older models to get started for him. Termies, tactical Marines, scouts, predator, razorback/rhinos, HQ (captain and librarian), or any other things you'd like to sell off. Also interested in any other models, not picky at all. A bulk deal would even be good. PM me with what you have or start a conversation. Thanks 😁

    How do I get on a team! Yes, I want to attend the 40k event and not AoS...i know, weird! I am working on a chaos army. Why do you want me on your team? Easy answer, I've received Best Sports in past years for fantasy open (singles event) as well as Best Sports fantasy (team event). What's my motto? Hobby, drink, and roll dice....maybe in that order!

    Recruiting Players for 40k Team Event

    So it's decided. I'm going to come to OFCC for 40k. Now I just need a team... I've been to two OFCCs for Infinity, so I'm not a total newb, but I'm still fairly fresh into 8th edition 40k. Who wants to take on a lonely orphan? I'll likely be bringing an all-Primaris Crimson Fists collection (because I don't like winning. :P)

    I would like to call everyone's attention to the following updates: Two INFINITY events added. Please join me in saying a big THANK YOU to @Exile for carrying the Infinity torch (lightrod? glowglobe?) and running a Friday and a Saturday/Sunday event at OFCC 2019. And another special THANKS to @FKA Obscure Reference for adding in a BOARDGAME TOURNAMENT on Saturday. More information to come on both events. Keep watching this thread for updates. For the Good of the Order!

    Infil-Traitors OFCC 2019 Team Thread

    I especially appreciate the guy attempting to tear apart the terminator's boot with his teeth. He may need a tutor to help him with his "tearing apart" studies, but the dude has gumption, you gotta give him that.

    That sounds like it would be a great "Lost and the Damned" force.

    Just Dusldorf things

    I've been using old Inquisitorial Acolyte models as Astropaths for a while, but today I decided it was time to convert a proper one. The body, stave, book, scroll, and head come from the Empire Flagellant sprue. The laspistol is from a Tempestus sergeant, the backpack from a regular Tempestus Scion, the mechanical tendrils are taken from the servoskull that floats above the Tempestus Commander, and the purity seal is from who-knows-where. I'm pretty pleased with how dynamic it turned out to be, and I'm excited to make the flames on his head look like warpflame.

    Rule ?

    Yes. The exact wording (including redundant "that") is: Models that charged this turn can only target enemy units that they charged in the previous phase. (Page 182, last sentence of first paragraph in "Choose Targets" subsection) So you can consolidate into new units to your heart's content, but will not be able to attack them with a strike again stratagem unless: A) You declared the charge against them as well (and thus exposed yourself to their overwatch). B) You did not charge this turn (either stuck in combat from the turn before, or the other player charged you this turn).

(I think I took 3 pictures all weekend, lol) -To Ben for being the unofficial 2nd TO, for all your help with terrain, behind-the-scenes logistics, all all the prep-work you were willing to do to make this event happen. -To Steph for running logistics on the pizza, and for transporting it to Guardian! -To Alex for bringing the extra mats. -To John G. for taking point on packing up terrain while I was scrambling to get scores in. -To Guardian for hosting us! ...and to everyone who make the trip and helped make this the biggest 9th Age event in the Northwest! Appreciate all the support, feedback, and patience as I bumbled my way through this event!
