    If you put effort in it is very useful... but I took this hobby specifically to avoid computers in part of my leisure time.

    Compilation is out heading into town to get my copy now... I'll do a personal review as a new topic here on ordo soon. This also completes my gang collection! Yay delaque.

    That's the plan... I love glue loopers for use with thin super glue it will work very well if that is what needs to be done. The thinner the layer of glue the better the bond and the glue loopers let you get just the right amount where you need it.

    I'm super glad I have plenty of glue loopers to attach these with. I'm not sure my plastic welder will work... guess I'll have some testing to do in a few weeks.

    Even better! I went with his sigalite "I" to make my deathwatch a little different. And that chaos radioactive symbol will look amazing black and yellow on purple I think... fix those hazards stripes by making them disappear! I briefly considered getting his 3d hazard stripes but they didn't look good on the left shoulder (of the model), my models have alot of sculpted right shoulder pads, and the glue on bit was way cheaper!

    I just spent over 100 bucks on some stuff! I hate you and myself 😜. Honestly though thank you for this reference. I've been uh happy with my free hand shoulders for awhile. Very reasonable conversion for just adding to existing pads. I was also able to find some cool "I" for my deathwatch primaris army.

    Terrain is a thing also knowing how the new hiding mechanic works... pinned in cover means hidden! No specific action now escher jump up is super amazing for this now, move them dive for cover (1/2 move then pin yourself). Next activation after being un targetable jump up do it again or aim and shoot charge etc. Not needing line of sight to charge is also nice. There is a roll to see who picks mission, the middle is a fixed mission that is pretty balanced, low roll highest gang rating picks, bigger chunk at the top lowest gang rating picks. So missions tend to be less beneficial to the higher gang rating. Works reasonably with the immediate ooa known results. It also depends on what your goals are in picking the mission creds, rep, turf, or just punitive attacks on the other guy... Finally person picking mission picks 3d terrain or tiles. If you are actually enforcing this rule along with load out not changing vansaar have to be ready for a close in fire fight and it goes a long way to balancing their pure shootyness in 3d terrain. If you break some of those rules the vansaar get to run away with things more as they need less versatility. The game actually works as written but breaks down quick if you make nostalgia type changes for reasons...

    Yeah super easy to miss but makes the play so much better game to game. Much better cost vs benefit consideration while playing. Playing a combat vs shooting gang goes much better as there will be that moment you've closed but at the cost of a few guys and will be taking more shots, knowing that Paris is just unconscious, but Crunch is critical let's you figure I'll be one man down next game but the win gets me that extra fighter I've been saving for let's do this! Bottling is also quite different... you basically take a 40k moral test (d6 plus seriously injured plus ooa vs starting gang size) then every turn after failing that (and bottling) each fighter gets a cool save against running off. Leaders and champs who pass can auto pass other fighters close by. So bottling is not I'm gone it is a I'm shaken man it might be time to hoof it...

    Skills are not balanced but the trees are better. Each tree has a skill or two you really want and savant actually has an icky skill! Shooting I think also has a dud, away from book right now so not sure. Only cawdor struggle to pick a starting skill for their champs which are average ws but better shots with access only to close combat centric skills... weird choice but it harkens back to the original... if only bulging biceps wasn't faq'd into the ground!

    Yeah pretty surprising what str and toughness 4 to start can do... they also have amazingly good cool so even if they bottle you can keep pushing as it is unlikely for them to flee unless you choose to. One big change that helps is that you roll the lasting injury as soon as they go ooa. I've used this to make better decisions on when to keep pushing for the win or just bounce. Knowing that the first couple ooa are in full recovery mode lets you make better long term choices in the short term. Very subtle but major change from just rolling at the end.

    I'm waiting to get the forge world till all are available. 10 ish built by box saving the rest for a bit too have options. Absolutely love that goliath are actual contenders this go around Paris is back with his band of meat head thugs! Playing back in the nineties felt like an exercise in futility against van saar this go around having better stats and stimulant injectors makes it a game so far! Escher toxin is terrifying tho.

    I've bought 20 (2 boxes) of each gang so far and wil continue this for delaque. I also sectioned off some cultists for a chaos band and bought gsc! Kept some of my old metals to use as venators so I've got all the gangs covered!

    The new models are phenomenal but they are bigger than the old so scaling in the same crew is an issue...
