    I miss the chance of success being tied to how many models were in the unit--it had a very real "martyrdom" feel, as if the souls of those who'd died were interceding on behalf of those who remained. "Better kill this unit entirely, or I'm guaranteed shooting you with rending bolters next turn!"

    Orks 2k list building

    Clearly, you should try to be the first person to collect a completely canon-accurate Waaagh! Bitespider. You just need 165 mobs of gretchin, twenty-some artillery pieces, and two score squiggoths, and a dozen gargantuan squiggoths. “You're not gonna lose the house, everybody has three mortgages nowadays.” —Dr. Peter Venkman

    Orks 2k list building

    So, I own a sizable Ork force, but looking to be cheap and not buy much more. That said, can you think of a way to make use of these? I think i can make a 2k list out of this, but fear I would have no good vehicle/monsterous creature solution (other than just a horde). Considering using this to motivate me to get them in gear. Most of these aren't painted, so I can get bits to replace kits as needed. That said, I was thinking of fielding exactly this and maybe add a weird boy to grant da jump. I figured I don't have much mobility. Having the battle wagon, trukk, and da jump made me think that would help. Also I hear grot shield is nice, so maybe 5 more gretchin? Thoughts? I don't need a leafblower list, but concerned this just might be squishy. Also want to gauge acceptable for OFCC (other than trying to play 100+ models in the 2.5hr time limit).

    Faction Focus - Adepta Sororitas

    I see Holy Trinity as an opportunistic stratagem: use it when the opportunity arises, but don’t hang your gameplan on it. Its probably worth making sure every unit has one of the three weapon types when you build your list to make sure you have the chance to use it when opportunity arises. But, given that boltguns are pretty much ubiquitous, all you really need to do is figure out how to work a melta- and a flamer-type into the squad.

    The Infinity Run

    I have lost my table for painting until after the holidays. Next year, I will paint more OS. I will buy the Dakini Box and the Beyond box. My goal is to play and have a table set up for the Rose City Raid.

    SAGA New Edition (2018)

    The Studio Tomahawk had these made for the Book of Battles scenarios. It's unclear from their post on Facebook who will sell these, although i suspect that it will be Gripping Beast.

    I remember that.. the 'Get into close combat, Celestians without any Close combat upgrades!' amongst other role mismatches. My favorite was the psuedo-rending one, and the re-roll wounds combo which paradoxically made regular flamers better at the job than heavy flamers... Good times.

    Spring 'fun' league

    I am up for a Super League run. I am always up for 7's. I can't do the weekly Human League comment, but am always up for more Blood Bowl.

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw

    Zone of Silence: Found Footage Alien Abduction Horror. A couple of dumbass white boys disappear in the Mexican desert. Rather than any of the various things that might happen to a couple of idiots who didn’t even bring proper hats or sunblock out in the desert, the sister of one of them decides that it must be In her trip out to the Zona del Silencio (which, as the film tells us every. single. time it’s mentioned, is Spanish for Zone of Silence), she reveals herself to be even more of an idiot, going alone in addition to all the mistakes the dudes did, and continuing on instead of getting out of dodge and coming back with reinforcements when it’s clear that something sketchy did happen. Most damningly, tho, her support guy, who she’s in touch with via satellite radio or something, is called Goose, and at none of the points when they lose contact does she say “Talk to me, Goose!” Gehenna: Where Death Lives: Rather more interesting. Not a great flick, and I guessed the twist as soon as something supernatural happened, but it was still pretty cool watching it play out. Not bad at all, and Cursed WWII Bunker is a setting I think more films should use. Verónica: The best I've seen so far in the "don't mess with Ouija boards" sub-genre. Nothing special in terms of plot elements, but there's some great acting, wonderfully atmospheric and creepy cinematography, and excellent pacing. Worth dealing with subtitles for, which isn't something I say about very many movies.

    CA leaks

    I’d wager we’ll see at least one hero from each of the “Big Four” cross the Rubicon Primaris in the next few years. My money is on Ragnar Blackmane (SW), Mephiston Calistarius (BA), Azrael of Kimmeria (DA), and Cato Sicarius (UM). I also imagine we’ll be also seeing Angron and Fulgrim making a comeback, giving a Daemon Primarch to each major Chaos God. (Mind you, what I would like to see them do is create some new characters. It’s kinda silly that the Iron Hands still don’t have any named characters or that the Imperial Fists, Salamanders, and White Scars only have one.)

    I think GW is misleading with the concept of this being a *beta* codex. It implies that GW tests things more than they really do. What they mean is that they are releasing a codex, but also plan to release a replacement codex shortly after. They are bracing the players for the idea of having to a second codex in the near future. And I think that GW giving us this warning is an improvement over the GW of the past.

    Warhamster Autumn Mordheim Campaign

    DECEMBER CAMPAIGN SCENARIOS Attached to this post are the December scenarios. Both have been modified, so don't use the versions found on Broheim or elsewhere. Scenario #5: The Necromancer's Tower This scenario is based upon a similarly named scenario from the Nemesis Crown Campaign. I believe that it is fairly straight forward, but if you have any questions, please feel free to post them here. Scenario #6: The Wild Wood This scenario can be a bit "tricky", so please read its rules carefully. The Necromancer's Tower.pdf The Wild Wood.pdf

    Wow, just got word that we'll have a big group of our 9th Age family coming up for California for this, 7 people! And just like that, half of the spots are claimed! Hope we can see some more of our Ordo brothers and sisters signing up too! Would love to see some Warhamsters make the trek down, you were sorely missed at OFCC! @Sherbert @smashthedean

    Absolutely, ish. Entropy, and similar come into play, but how much heat is being re-introduced into the room (by "heat loss" through the walls, heat gain from product being loaded, or air exchange from the door being open) effects how often the condenser has to cycle on, and for how long. Same with the pull down, that is, how long is it okay to take to get BACK to holding temp. The more it cycles on, the higher the operating cost.

    Koyote in Mordheim

    Poor brave Natasha died during my last game. She was torn apart by Witch Hunters' hounds. To make maters worse, three of my heroes went out-of-action and I rolled abysmally low with my 2 exploration dice, so I ended up with only one treasure (wyrdstone). I didn't have enough gc to pay the upkeep for my my hired swords and hire a new Youth, so I sold my rabbits foot, a lantern, and both of my Streltsis' bows (they never hit anything anyway). This gave me enough gold to keep both hired swords and hire a new Youth, Gregor. My replacement Youth is an actual Kislev Youth model from the long OOP Mordheim Kislev warband set. The Kislev weapon sprue didn't give me what I wanted, so I equipped him with a hammer from the Frostgrave Barbarian plastic set and a mace that I cobbled together from a bit from a GW Bretonnian men-at-arms kit. The dwarf is another OOP GW model. I had at one time planned to incorporate the model into my Kislev warband as a hire sword, but I don't think this will happen this time around. The model has been primered and sitting on my painting table for ages. I got tired of it starring at me with those tiny, judgmental eyes, so I slapped some paint on the little bugger and moved it to my display case. Now I have room on my painting table for another unpainted model that I can neglect.

    Koyote in Mordheim

    It's time for my Kislevites to add a bear to their warband. The model is an OOP bear, made by Red Box Games. The original sculpt's claws are either obscured by its fur or missing altogether, so I made my own. The GS claws on the mini's right paw look shorter than the others, but that's because they are curled under a bit too much and none of the camera angles fully captured them. The dense terrain of a Mordheim table can make it difficult to properly place models on large bases, so I took advantage of bear's upright pose and mounted it on 25mm square.
