    Crimes of Transition Movie...I mean Grindelwald! Or something like that. So as a stand alone movie, it sucks balls. If you haven't seen the first one, don't bother with this one. If you have seen the first one, then this movie is okay. But that's still not great. It goes on and on, and you aren't really quite sure what the point of it all is. The first Beasts movie was fantastic. But this one plods along and you keep waiting for that culmination that all this was leading up to....but you don't really get that at all. Honestly, I felt like they were so surprised the first one did so well, that they decided to come with a second movie that ties back into the Potter series even more...just for the sake of tying into the Potter movies.

    NW Warmaster?

    Gordianus and I got in our first game last night. I couldn't find my darn rulebook, so was using the living rulebook (not warmaster revolutions). To keep things simple for our first time, we just played with starter set armies. He ran orcs and gobs, while I ran undead. Points wise they are the closest two armies I think. All in all, the game went fairly well. There were a few times I went running back to the PC to check on something. Gordi's orcs took out three of my units and forced me to withdraw, but, I got more victory points than he did, so it ended in a draw. Not bad for the first game. I'm going to have to start writing down questions as they come up in the games though. There are so many strange situations that can happen in warmaster. Still, a fun game and it was nice to have the little buggers out again. Now I just gotta find that dang rulebook.

    Units mostly, but would consider an army depending on size and options.

    Also in the market for orcs and gobs for warmaster. 🙂

    Forum post editor help

    I wanted to do a spoiler tag thingy, but couldn't see it as an option. So tried to look up how to do it, but frustrated by the lack of documentation for this forum system.

    Is there documentation anywhere on the various tags and features of this editor? I can never seem to find one.

    I'll have to disagree with you on the tag "children's movie". I think it would be much more accurate to say they are "Family Movies". Normally, I am almost always able to connect or relate in some way. This movie just missed the mark. The original plot is fine, gotta save her game. But then it takes a creepy turn into poor decisions and gets mired in selfishness. The bad part is, they only reconcile one of them instead of both. If you don't like family movies, then yeah, skip this one. 🙂

    Wralph Breaks the Internet or (The Emoji movie with Disney licenses). Meh. I won't say the movie is bad. But if Wreck it Ralph is good, then this ain't no Wreck it Ralph either. There were moments that made me laugh, but most of the time I was just waiting. I was waiting to be engaged, and that just didn't happen. WIR is good because it engages you. It sucks you in and holds you there through the whole movie. This does not. I will sit and watch WIR whenever it comes on because its good. I don't see myself seeing this one again.
  11. So a buddy of mind discovered that he had a new game in his steam list called Space Hulk Enhanced Edition. A quick look to my own steam library and I too had this game. Apparently if you had the previous one, you got this for free? Anyways, we both were fans of the series, so we took it out for a spin. Overall, not a bad game. It is difficult. We are playing on normal and are veterans of FPS games, but we still wiped out about a third of the games. They have added some stuff to make it pretty interesting, but quite honestly, I don't think I played enough of the original to tell you all that has changed. A quick google says they've added more bad guys, and added in a nice reward system for multiplayer. Oh, and they vastly improved frame rate. I play co-op mostly. I've tried single player stuff, but it is even harder as the bots just aren't that good, and they don't give you a full squad, but only two guys. The other big issue is that there is no built in voip. Now thankfully, steam has voip, so if playing with friends, you can use it (or Discord if you have it) to remedy. That doesn't help you though for the random pick up games. Another issue for me, is that the big map has a fixed position, but your mini-map rotates to keep you facing north. Very confusing. You pull up hte big map and know you have to go north, but if you don't realize that you are facing south, you can end up moving away from your objective. I've seen posts asking for an option to stop the mini rotation...I hope they do so. Anyways, overall, this is a fun game. The story and campaign are fantastic. The atmosphere is darn near perfect. And it is a challenging game. With several classes of terminators, various abilities, and now unlocks to earn, they have made it engaging and worthwhile to sink some time into. And during the winter sale, its pretty darn cheap to buy if you didn't get the old one. So check out Space Hulk Deathwing on Steam.

    Yowch....$15-$20 a blister. That's worse than ebay prices. Wonder if they are commission for someone?

    Not sure I'd agree with that. In those other games, units are completely independent and always are able to perform actions. Warmaster has a command system which not only introduces failure of even basic actions, but also grants a variability to how much a unit or units can do. There is a much greater risk and reward mechanic in Warmaster that I have yet to see GW go back to.

    Warmaster is probably GW's best wargame ever. There are people out there that play. I'm on a kick to get several armies up and running and will hopefully find some people to play. 🙂

    Dang it....I was just at GG to get the ork codex and I forgot to ask about warmaster. Quite honestly though, it was hell just driving to GG. There are so many bad drivers in Portland. I seriously am looking forward to leaving the city. The sheer amount of a-holes out there is overwhelming. I was all happy and excited to get my new book, but by the time I got home, I was just glad I had made it alive. I'm actually planning on using the models to play Warmaster. I only have two units of halberdiers, and they are required for every 1K points. So in order to field 2K (my goal) I need another two units.
