    The Uprising - Armies on Parade

    I only found out about the Armies on Parade event a couple of months ago, so I sort of had to get the base work in high gear. Ended up going with the Cityscape Genatorium Sector as most of the base with a few extra bits added. While I didn't medal, I did take "Best Painted" - so overall I'm happy!

    I am interested in running a Bolt Action league in Jan 2020 at the Ordo clubhouse, likely something relatively light and introductory like an escalation league capped off with a tournament if there is interest, possibly run something more involved in the summer/fall if folks want more. I will edit this post with more details later, but wanted to ask potentially interested parties to post here so we can figure if this has enough interest to run with it and also let people plan to take advantage of any holiday sales that may become available when the time comes. Please reply below if interested, no need to commit to a given faction, etc. at this time.

    This sounds great! Brother Glacius told me about this and I had check it out. I’m in. I have several armies and could field ally or axis if we care about that being balanced. Lately my passion has been minor Axis with Bulgaria. But, I’ve got Finns, Japanese, Russians, US, French, and Norwegians.

    40K Book Play vs ITC Play

    WAAC is a player mentality. As has been stated previously, ITC is a tournament environment. As has been stated previously, such environments bring out the competitive individuals en masse. As has been stated previously, the more casual the player, the easier it is to perceive a competitive player as WAAC. Applying WAAC is subjective. ITC is an objective (if biased) guideline.

    Tales from the 'Junction

    Arliss was sceptical, but the scummer swore the Hoodlum Kings would be after the smokes machine they found. "This is stupid" swore Karl over the vox. "No one's coming." He'll know soon enough, Arliss figured. He's making enough racket on the catwalk to wake a sump-croc. At least Hurst and Kirk were watching him. With Yvette and the new meat in the side tunnels, Arliss felt exposed, even if Tomas was only 2 metres away. "Just keep an eye out" hissed Arliss, "you never know.." The Orlock burst out from the other end of the catwalk, blasting away at Karl as he was bull charging him. "Gaaah!" yelled Karl, loud enough to be heard without the vox. "Freller opened my leg!" "Stay down" Arliss yelled back, his movement tracker lit up with what could only be the rest of the 'Kings. Arliss signaled Kirk, they both should cut off the right flank. Gunfire erupted from the other side of the cavern. With bullets and shrapnel bouncing around them both, he saw Yvette drop out from one of the side tunnels. "Mine" was all Arliss heard as she unloaded plasma and laser fire at the 'King at the end of the lane. Soon enough she had the Orlock shuffling around the corner. "Behind us, by the vend!" Kirk announced over the vox. Hurst's Rad-Cannon was working overtime, Arliss could hear him cackling with glee everytime he unloaded at the other gang. The gunfire was erupting all around them, it was only by the Emperor's grace none else was dropped. He and Tomas were putting on speed, trying to get to a spot they could put down some fire when they all heard a mighty "Woohoo!" on the open channel. "Was that the meat?" Arliss wondered, it couldn't be. "Boss, I got their fancy terminal! Frelled it up real good! What should I.." was all that Arliss heard from the new kid before the autogun fire drowned out his voice. "These Hoolum Kings are falling back, can't tell if it's on purpose or not" Hurst comm'd. I just dropped another one. Arliss voiced on the band "These guys aren't stupid, could be bugging out, could be a faint. Kirk let me know they trashed the vend, so no real point sticking around. Someone grab Karl and the rest of you fade out when you get a chance. Tomas and I will run down this last one." "He's running off to the side you just came from Boss!" hollered the meat. The sizzle from his laspistol distorting his voice just enough. Weaving in and out of the stacks, Arliss and Tomas were running out of breath trying catch the wiley 'King. A few shots were made back and forth, but they lost each other in the section. "Let's get out of here" Arliss told Tomas. "safer than hanging around" Damn. He really wanted to see if any of those vend smokes were any good.

    Sunday 10/20 - WE WILL PLAY!

    I am in the clubhouse. I see familiar faces, beautifully painted models, lovingly crafted terrain. I hear the sounds of laughter, of dice rolling, of @Raindog roaring like a fool because someone rolled a crit at just the right time. All is right with the world... ... and then I awaken in my bed. Next to me, a tablet computer with a marketing textbook open on it. The models in the next room, I can hear them mocking me, silently. I shudder, but not against the cold of the room; no, it is the icy chill of a man imprisoned that runs down my spine. I drearily resign myself to the day's classwork, toil unending. Drab. Dark. I weep silently. One day, I promise myself, fists shaking impotently at the sky; one day, I will be free from these bonds of labor, free once again to run wild and free, to roll dice and measure ranges, to laugh and feel joy. Alas, today is not that day. I slump into my chair, and begin my work anew. - "Ordo Gothic" by Jeff Rockwell, 2019. Miss you guys.

    Selling two WWII rifles

    Recently got an opportunity to get a rifle I've been wanting for a while, but I need to make some room for it. Selling a 1944 German K98 and a British Lee Enfield. Both are fully functional rifles, non-sporterized (still in historical form). As per Oregon law, we would need to go to a FFL to do a transfer. I'll be posting these up soon on Northwest Firearms forum. PM if interested.

    If a significant segment of the population had powers, I think they would start getting taken into account by the laws. That said, for PPE, it might actually be for the best to require it for everyone regardless of need, just so peer pressure is working on the side of safety. The reporter gig gives him a cover for going just about anywhere, tho, and while it may be a long-term commitment in the big picture, in the short term, there isn't a requirement for him to be at his desk 9-5 M-F. A welder who gets a reputation for leaving the job at random times and without notice is pretty quickly going to pick up a bad reputation among potential employers. Not unless taken to an extreme. The major factors are partially genetic, and partially derived from childhood nutrition. Now, if you're talking something small enough that the child is actually somehow being physically compressed by the dwelling, yeah, that would stunt growth, but not evenly or proportionately.

    Koyote's Britons & other SAGA Stuff

    I finally got around to adding a tattoo to my Celtic giant, Cribwr Gawr. This model is Shield Maiden Astrid, made by Brother Vinni Miniatures. She, along with the 3 tattooed Curaidh models that I previously painted for my Dark Age Irish warband, will form a unit of 4 Beserkers for my Age of Magic Celtic Horde warband.

    Units with both CH: Camouflage, and some form of Infiltration (or way to deploy beyond the standard DZ) are very useful for objective missions. Deploying in the CH: Camouflage state provides additional defenses, in that the enemy cannot shoot them directly without revealing them using Discover (or them revealing themselves in ARO). Bandits have both of these skills, and could find a place in your Nomad list, depending on what kind of player you evolve into. From a more practical standpoint, in Vanilla Nomads, they are AVA 2, and in Corregidor they are also 2. And they can also always function as a proxy if you think they look damn cool!

    40K Book Play vs ITC Play

    That would be WAAC way to look at it, certainly. Very ITC. But playing a longer game against a groin kicking franken army isn't fun. Even if I were winning, I wouldn't be having fun. I don't have fun against that sort of list. And the player wasn't particularly fun either. Trying to peer pressure me into playing a longer game when I'm not having fun is just stupid.

    Forgotten Gargoyles Space Marines

    Wasn't until I was setting up did I realize the Caetus Assault Ram wasn't in my list. Fail. Brought it and everything. Opponent ( @Hodor ) had a melee GSC army without allies. I don't think I've faced his sort of list this edition. I got confused by rules often, but I think I enjoyed the GSC as an opponent. Anyway, opponent won, though I was quite happy with just getting out of the house and playing with an enjoyable opponent. Thank you @Hodor

  38. 1 point
    Please feel free to reply to this thread with any comments/concerns, this is a draft of the league rules/format. If you can quote the specific sections outlined below in any comments, all the better. My intent for this league is to serve as a friendly escalation format to introduce a new game system to the Ordo Fanaticus community. I’ve found Bolt Action to be a relatively affordable alternative to 40k with a lightweight rules system and generally familiar game mechanics and saw an opportunity to facilitate game play between potentially interested members. Proposed points schedule by week-of date: Jan 5-Jan 11: 500 points Jan 12-Jan 18: 600 points Jan 19-Jan 25: 700 points Jan 26-Feb 1: 800 points Feb 2-Feb 8: 900 points Feb 9-Feb 15: 1000 points Feb 16-Feb 22: 1000 points Games are not required to be played at the Ordo clubhouse or on Tuesday nights; scheduling for another location or day/night is allowed, but games should be reported to the clubhouse league tracker or posted in the league thread on this forum. Scenarios are to be the basic Battle Scenarios from the main rulebook; the scenario to be played will be announced at the start of each week of play on the forums in the league thread. Players can agree to play another scenario as long as both players are comfortable doing so and agree to do so beforehand so both players can adjust their lists accordingly. Game Scoring will be outlined at the start of each week. Players should declare their prefered faction/nation prior to the start of the league for general reference, but may change platoon lists from week-to-week as they please. Eg. A British Army player could field a Reinforced Platoon from Armies of Great Britain one week and then field a different British Army platoon from another campaign book if desired in another week. Whenever possible, players should also declare their orders dice color to avoid confusion when randomly drawing order dice from a bag to determining activation order during the game. I will try and have some alternative colored sets of dice to be made available for use at the clubhouse in the event that players have matching color of orders dice on a given week. Players are encouraged to play as many different opponents as they can over the course of the league, ideally arranging games in advance via the forums or any other resource they’re comfortable with. There is no restrictions on platoon/theater selector, but all armies should only be built from a single platoon list. Generic Reinforced Platoons from the respective army books are encouraged, but not required. Multiple platoons are not allowed unless a player is unable to field the game points level in a single platoon from their army collection. This is intended to encourage thematic gameplay and avoid the complications of multiple tanks or similar issues seen in competitive lists. Units should be selected from a single source as listed from their army or campaign book where the platoon being used is defined. Universally available units are allowed per their rules which must be made available to all players accordingly. Tank platoons are not allowed. Experimental units or Named characters are not allowed. Players are encouraged to avoid any ‘beardy’ or WAAC lists (Japan bamboo spear hordes, multiple flamethrowers, etc.); the league is intended to be fun and introductory for both new and experienced players. If you’re bringing what you believe to be a strong list, please let your opponent know well in advance if possible to let them try and plan accordingly. The only rule I can think of I want to amend/change for the league concerns artillery crew taking up the entire transport capacity when being towed (p.117 of the compact rule book VEHICLES:TOWING GUNS) and instead have them only consume the capacity equal to their crew count if the vehicle capacity is greater (A US Army 2&½ ton truck towing a 4-crew gun would still be able to fill the remaining 14 (of 18) person capacity per the normal transport rules). IF you are aware of any other rules that defy reason in the standard game, please let me know and I will list them here for feedback. I will potentially have a couple armies available for interested parties to use (I must insist these remain at the Ordo clubhouse if they are available and their use be discussed/approved beforehand) if someone is not yet ready to buy into the game system (estimated $200 for a 1000 point army and all involved rules, etc.).

    New Player Infinity Question

    What Raindog said. TAGs can be a trap. They're big and powerful and scary, but they usually eat up about a third of your points, and you don't have to kill the TAG to render it ineffective, just kill it's orders - which, by don't of the TAG's cost, are likely to be mostly chaff that can easily be chewed through. Iguanas in particular are an odd beast. They're cheap and cheerful, but they're more fragile than most TAGs. However, they barf out a 2 wound heavy infantry with an HMG when they die. They also have a repeater, which is a double edged sword. Corregidor doesn't really have the hacking to take advantage of it, so he might be better on Vanilla. If you have money to spend, I'd grab it, because at some point, when you're more experienced, you'll likely want to experiment with it. Otherwise, hold off until you think you're ready.

    New Player Infinity Question

    Puppetactica are very VERY good. They are cheap, fast wounds that are good at pushing buttons and surprisingly good at firefights. The way they work is the puppet master is placed somewhere. So long as there are active puppets on the field, the puppet master can only idle. Even if a guy is walking up to the puppet master to shoot him, the puppet master can only idle. The reason the hacker profile exists is because you must have a hacker (or TAG) to bring remotes, which includes the puppet bots. I suppose you can also use him as an actual hacker, but that's not really his strength. Smart Missile Launchers are half a trap. While in theory they can be very deadly, it is also very order intensive. One way to think about it is this: you have to make 1 roll to target someone, then another roll to actually do the guided fire. During this time, that first roll could have been actually shooting said target with a gun instead of targetting and they could already be dead after 1 order. Guided fire has its place, but you always have to consider that it's relatively order inefficient. ITS missions in general don't tend to care what type of specialist it is; Forward observer, paramedic, engineer, etc. Though there are exceptions. Then, if there are classifieds, then it does care. They don't care specifically what type of hacker typically except that some of the FO or Hacker ones require spotlight, which killer hackers don't have.

I'm able to do learning games or basic 40k missions, but I'm not a tournament player so if looking for tournament practice I'm just not there. Otherwise, I suppose I could bring Pokemon Cards, Magic Cards, or a kill team (provided someone else has the rulebook).
