    40K Escalation League - 2020 Winter Warzone “The road to OFCC” Welcome everyone! You’ve waited patiently, and here’s the first go at laying down the rules. What: 40k escalation league When: 8 weeks of slaughter! Starting Sunday March 1st 2020 and ending Tuesday April 21st 2020. Where (multiple locations in Portland/Vancouver area): Ordo/WoW, Tuesdays (around 5pm+) and Sundays (around 3pm+) on normal game nights. Arrange games in game night thread on these forums. Goin' Gaming (Sundays, starts at noon) Geeks and Games, (game night to be determined or in store) Fate & Fury games, (game night to be determined or in store) Gambit's Cards & Hobbies (Thursdays, 5:30pm). Play at their league night and receive 10% off product, food, & drinks. More stores may participate, keep an eye out. Even home games are allowed (against league players). Perks: There will be a 1750 point ITC style tournament Saturday April 25th 2020 after the league ends hosted at the Ordo clubhouse. Anyone who purchased 2020 Ordo champ dues (Reaver or higher) and played at least 5 weeks/games in the 40k league for credit will get FREE entry to that tournament. More info to come. Who: YOU!!! Why: Because you need to prepare an army, refresh on 40k rules, or just love 40k so much you want to play more often! Also, this would be great preparation if you’re thinking about OFCC in July! Cost: League itself is FREE for everyone. With the exception of game night dues (playing at WoW) or if the store you play at has a fee. Highly recommend renewing your champion status on the Ordo store for 2020. Warlord more than pays for itself for just the 8 league nights alone when playing at WoW. Needed: Bring a copy of your lists each week, gaming equipment (dice, cards, etc), and a good sportsmanlike gaming demeanor. Army Composition: Battleforged lists using matched play, with the goal of escalating a real army for future use (OFCC, tournaments, and other future events). Max detachments: 500 points: 1 detachment 750 to 1250: 2 detachments 1500 to 1750: 3 detachments Armies can include any number of 40k approved Games Workshop, Chapter Approved, or Forgeworld sources Each week will be an increased point value. Week 1 (March 3rd): 500 (doubles recommended) Week 2 (March 10th): 750 (doubles recommended) Week 3 (March 17th): 1000 (doubles optional) Week 4 (March 24th): 1000 (doubles optional) Week 5 (March 31st): 1250 Week 6 (April 7th): 1500 Week 7 (April 14th): 1500 Week 8 (April 21st): 1750 (same point level as tournament on April 25th) You need to have fun with this. Experiment with combinations you’ve never tried, you are not locked into a list or army during this league! This is not a win at all costs league, make sure your opponents enjoy the game too. CLARIFICATIONS: If you use a detachment, you get all the benefits of a detachment including CP's. Some weeks have limits on how many of detachments you can take. Event Specific Rules: Your army is your army. You have your own Warlord. Nominate a CHARACTER. Required keyword. If playing doubles: Your psychic powers can only buff your army. They are allowed to debuff your teammate’s army. For the purposes of the Fight Phase, teammates are considered as one and will need to pick a single unit to Fight first. 6x4 tables with FAQ Tactical Reserves rules in effect. Smaller tables will be used for the lower point levels. League points will be earned in 3 ways: Win/Loss/Draw Newly painted models/units Sportsmanship Painting and Basing Requirements: All models must be WYSIWYG assembled (no proxies). Painted is optional. If counting models toward painting points: Must be minimum 3 colors Effort must be made to transform or replace the bare plastic base Points will be awarded to single models newly (1 point each, max 3) painted OR bonus points if an entire squad is newly painted/finished (5 points). This can be earned weekly. Missions: All missions will be released the Sunday before the week begins on Tuesdays. (i.e. Mission for the first week will be posted March 1st, etc). Earning League Points (earned once each week): Win: 5 points Loss: 1 point Draw: 3 points Newly painted models OR unit Newly painted counts if completed after Feb 1st 2020, in preparation for the league. If painted 2 units in a week, count the other unit next week (yes it can carry over). 1 point per newly painted model, max 3 OR 5 points for newly painted squad, vehicle, or monstrous creature Up to 5 Points for sportsmanship Create a weekly updated thread on the Ordo forums tracking your missions & progress (+1pt) Bring food for your league mates or buy opponent a snack/drink?

Best escalation Awarded by most painting points Prize: Bragging rights Best Sportsmanship Awarded by most sportsmanship points Prize: Bragging rights Stores may offer their players additional prize support on the side as desired.

    Basing fun

    Getting bases ready for @pretre’s new sisters force! Using GSW pavement rolling pin for the texture on modeling clay, some flower tufts from gamer grass. Some things I learned: the top of a 32mm GW base is 30mm. Gamer grass tufts look better than GSW flower tufts, but lose more blossoms in application ( see the photo with the red HG and purple GSW tufts)

    My first dabbling with Apothecary White was... unsatisfactory, doing “one thick coat” over the recommended Grey Seer base. See the Terminator pic below... not what I was going for with my White Scars. After some test models, I settled on a roughly 1:1 mix of Apothecary White with Contrast Medium, applied over the brightest white primer I could find, a Rustoleum 2X, I think it is, from Target. This is much brighter and gets the bits of grey you see in codex illustrations. Here’s the mix being applied and some final results. These are much more like what I wanted.

    If glimpses has an event person I can contact and work with, I'd be happy to provide them everything they need (missions, scoring sheet online, etc). They just need someone to coordinate their games and nights to do so (and store approval). Of course, just be mindful bringing say a 20 wound T8 model pre 1k can be very rough for many armies. However, I'd totally play ya! I also just got 'Goin gaming' in Troutdale added also.

    You can chalk another one up for those dirty knights today! the battle ‘twas fought outside of Le Bastille De Bastarde. Goblin Doom Diver did massive damage to Bens knights all game and lots of fanatic shenanigans occurred to decimate everyone. Took 7 turns for me to rout him fully so major victory to Ben! Cheers for the game buddy.

    New to 40k with this group. Only played WFB and Infinity before with Ordo/WoW, so this league will motivate me to build and paint up my 40k forces and meet new people.

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw

    Just got home from Birds of Prey. I liked it quite a bit. Everything a DC movie should be. Dark and goofy. Definitely over the top, but not in as much of a slapstick way as I expected, and it called itself out a couple times, seconds after I had a "hey, wait a minute..." moment. I really liked the style of it. It felt more like a comic book than almost any adaptation I've seen recently. The story jumped around a bit and felt compiled out of smaller stories, as opposed to a clearer 1st, 2and, 3rd act traditional movie script (not that it couldn't still be broken down this way). The use of narration, the coloring and framing of shots, and the physics all felt comic booky. Margot Robbie was great, Ewan McGregor was great. I wasn't a huge fan of their version of Huntress, but that's my girlfriend's favorite character and she was satisfied, so that's good enough for me. Definitely a fun flick, worth checking out, but not necessarily a must-see in theaters.

    Oh yeah, and funny story. In my ethics class earlier this week, we discussed Napster. Out of 43 students and one professor, I was the only one to actually use Napster. #adultstudent

    I can now say with absolute certainty - the Tectonic Fragdrill is the most time spent painting per point of the unit I've ever spent... EVER!!! Here's a few "in progress" shots - hoping to get it done in the next few days... More at the blog: https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2020/02/work-in-progress-tectonic-fragdrill.html

    Ignore these people. Everyone on the gamer geek internet is the best wargame player ever (just ask them), just like every sports fan in your office the Monday after the Super Bowl is a super-genius coach who could have lead their team to a 24,601 to 3 victory. 🙄 Pick whichever army you are the most excited by and base that decision on what appeals to you and not the chattering ninnies of the Internet. If you care most about looks, pick the one you think looks the best; If you care most about playstyle, pick the one you think best matches your style of play; If you care most about storytelling, pick the one that you think has the coolest story. It's you money and your time that you'll be investing in these toy soldiers. You don't want to drop $500 and 1,000 hours of hobby time into an army you don't enjoy.

    Hey Dino Steve! I'm Pete aka Exile, one of our Ordo Senators, glad you found us! Yes, our Sunday Game Night features Infinity action, 3-7 at the clubhouse. It is located here in downtown Portland. I know Raindog and a couple others will be out, but I know there will be a few people up for games, we've got several other game system leagues running, we had an epic game night last week. I myself play NCA and OSS, been dabbling in Shas lately, I'll bring a collection of lists for multiple factions. Looking forward to it!

    Did I mention how much I love this terrain? Modular and sturdy, fairly easy assembly (most of it my 11 year old did), lightweight and stores easily. It’s my dream come true 🥰. Now I need a fantasy version http://tinkerhousegames.com/tinkerturf/

    Still waiting on one match to be played, but so far the results have favored the forces of order. At this point it's Order 9 - Chaos 2 (not counting BPs for hobbying), which means that a Chaos massacre still won't be enough to change the outcome of the scenario. I'll have a narrative blurb out soon to segue into the next scenario.
