    9th Age Escalation Campaign

    I’ve a large WHFB Empire army which was made up of samurai and ashigaru from historical miniatures manufactures and not GW stuff. It’s been in storage back in Michigan, but I’m trying to make arraignments to get it shipped to me here... If that happens, I might jump into this league. Big, fat, monstrous creature sized “if” on that though.

    [Conan] shrugged his shoulders. "I have known many gods. He who denies them is as blind as he who trusts them too deeply. I seek not beyond death. It may be the blackness averred by the Nemedian skeptics, or Crom's realm of ice and cloud, or the snowy plains and vaulted halls of the Nordheimer's Valhalla. “I know not, nor do I care. “Let me live deep while I live; let me know the rich juices of red meat and stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame and crimson, and I am content. Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content." —Robert E. Howard, ‘Queen of the Black Coast,’ Weird Tales 235 (May 1934) [emphasis added]

    So, in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, we see that in the future year of 2688 A.D. everyone lives in an idyllic utopia inspired by the music of the band Wyld Stallyns. It’s currently 2019 A.D. and one of the most popular memes on social media and pop culture is that of “St. Keanu.” Extolling Keanu Reeves for his humble personality, insightful interviews, and general, all-round sheer niceness. (And looking damn fine in a well tailored suit.) A lot of cultural drift can happen in 669 years... Maybe, just maybe, the future San Dimas isn’t that impossible?

    I know you're not talking about suicide here, but there has actually been some research on suicide that shows that one of the biggest factors in completed suicide attempts is sufficiently strong willpower to overcome the survival instinct.

    On December 21st, I am running a terrain day to help build terrain for Bolt Action to aid the up coming league. If you know of or can find tutorials to build hedgerows, craters, tank traps, sand bags, boccage, pill boxes, etc, can you link them to here?

    I trust we'll have an announcement that states in one place any special rules. (unless I already missed it) The core Rulebook gives definition as to what can be in a Warband (3000 and less) (to those who haven't looked one big adjustment is all 0-X restrictions are halved rounding up, so only 1 cannon in I think all cases). Whether or not we will be using Flux Supplement''s Warband Flux Cards. Any other potential restrictions like Ben's allusion to a "only hero level characters". Rules about the persistent campaign element (which I assume will be awesome). I've already suggested an adjustment IF a rule of "locked in" general proves cumbersome for Daemonic Legions (also Vermin Swarm players wanted to be General'd by a Vermin Daemon). I post this mostly because I'd like to know where the organizers are in that particular process or direct this conversation towards making those decisions.

    Yeah i think the decision to include a big ol daemon would open the flood gates though for folks to bring the twin cannons, and then all control is gone on keeping it friendly and chilled to help people learn the game at a smaller points level. I for one welcome the opportunity to mess around with core troops and “lesser” generals for a more thematic fluff driven campaign to help more people get into the hobby for sure. 🙂

    Just jumping in to stir the pot..... I don't think it's a HUGE deal if a big super demon comes into a smaller game. Not all armies pair down well to smaller games, demons have always been a bit elite / funky. Your opponent will more or less know ahead of time what to expect. You just don't get to be sour grapes if they bring a couple canons 🙂

    You can also make effective and attractive hedgerows by: Gluing a strip of pluck foam down to a wooden tongue depressor Covering the new piece in thinned PVA Placing foliage (Woodland Scenics or whatever cheaper brand you prefer—just looking for the foam-based kind) on the still-wet pluck foam Use various grit to cover the visible area of the tongue depressor Paint the grit like dirt/rocks Cover the whole thing in a few more coats of thinned PVA to lock it all down For craters, you can do a similar thing. Cut out your base out of whatever you want (pressed cardboard should be OK, but MDF/masonite would be best) Glue pluck foam down in a rough circle a little ways in from the edge of your base (gotta leave room for the taper) Cover the whole base in a quick spritz of isopropanol (not a necessary step, but a good habit to build) Cover everything in Sculptamold Wet your fingers and smooth the edges down around where you placed the pluck foam to create a ridge Add some larger pieces of grit starting with your small gravel and working down to sand Give the larger pieces of grit a bit of thin super glue and then hit the whole thing with thinned PVA After this is dry, hit it with the isopropanol again Spray with thinned PVA Apply dry grout across piece After that dries, hit it with some more thinned PVA layers to seal it Paint Sculptamold really is a wonderful thing to have if you're into terrain building as it's a fast-drying, plaster-based compound with some paper for volume. Like papier-mâché, but much, MUCH stronger. Dry grout similarly acts as a very fine soil/sand and adds a tough texture that binds the piece together. I recommend pluck foam just because of how ubiquitous it is in gaming circles, but you could also use foam scraps from other projects if you want.

    Blood Redd: Not bad at all for a low budget indy flick. It takes a while to get going, but the middle section is awesome, and then it really picks up again at the end. Fun flick with a different take on werewolves that I quite liked.

    Once they get their crap together, I think they are worth getting. They have quite an extensive catalog, but they also have poor security, at the moment. I watch more hulu than Netflix. I watch newer shows on other streaming sites. I'll pay for D+ as soon as they get their act together. It is suffering from first gen launch issues.

    How you came to this conclusion from Ben's comments is beyond me. Narrative campaigns often have rules that differ from the rulebook. You're making it sound like every rule being put other there is a "gotcha!" rule put in place to hurt you or your army. It's clearly not the case, at least to everyone else. It seems to me that the army you want to play (Wrath) doesn't scale down to 2k points. You were given to option to "make a case" of letting your Harbinger not be your general so that, when the game scales up to the point where you could bring in a Scourge, you could still keep Harbinger you had been building up throughout the campaign and still have your Wrath general. Isn't this what you specifically wanted?: "I'd much rather my reoccurring character be a 200-300pt Harbinger, but the army takes a hit if the Harbinger is the general." What is the army you "want" to play at 2k points that people are saying you can't play? You said yourself that the Miser wasn't balanced for 2k and that you couldn't bring the Scourge at 2k.

    Halp! Need ideas for a workaround!

    Would something like this work? Clip the larger part of the mini to the clip, stick it in the rack, and then use your good hand to hold the smaller bit your gluing on... For trimming and cleaning, you should be able to rotate these with your injured hand without putting too much pressure on your thumb.

    Doormat Hayfields by the Terrain Tutor. I find his overly-bubbly personality a bit grating, but he does great work. My misanthropic heart just cannot handle so much cheeriness... Dirt roads and tracks. Simple and easy technique, but really effective results... Crops and fields. The nice thing about a lot of this stuff is that it’s almost entirely “scale neutral,” meaning it will work for Bolt Action just as well as Team Yankee/Flames of War if you just leave off things that would give away the scale, like scarecrows or road signs.

    Halp! Need ideas for a workaround!

    So I've recently developed tendonitis in my left thumb. An odd place for it, and I have no idea how it happened. What it means is that trying to grip something with said thumb is an exercise in great pain. As can be imagined, this makes it very difficult to assemble models. I'm considering getting one of those little handles with the grippy clips that GW is selling these days, but does anyone else have any ideas for a workaround? The injury doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon, and I'm not about to give up my hobby just because of one lousy effed up digit.
