    I think that if the terrain rules, and the new missions, and universal competitive format are all successful, then what we're going to see is that future balance changes, and new/rewritten rules are going to be fantastic. Not to mention that, according to the play testers that are TOs, the format will stay at 2000 points, even though point costs are increasing across the board. That means faster games, and a lower bar for entry. More players playing more games; the same kind of games and missions with the same terrain rules and guidelines. That's good stuff that may not show its full value in the first few months, but will pay off in spades. Can't wait to get my Crusade on. I'm unreasonably hopeful and excited for that. Edit: Also did anyone else catch that you score objectives in your next command phase, from that version of the 4 Pillars Mission they posted? That means a lot less of, "Surprise I run out and grab stuff and you don't get a chance to counter-play."

    Adventures in Contrast Paint

    Minions, Part 3 - Return of the Jolly Ogre(oid)! As I teased in the last post, my final addition to the warband is a classic from the original Mordheim range: the mercenary ogre. Warhammer has come a long way since Mordheim - well, come and gone and come back again - and now they are ogroids running around with gnoblars, so I decided to update the model with modern trappings (or trappers, get it?). Hold your breath from his own foul meat-drenched halitosis, as here comes Horkdor, the Wandering Beast of Mordheim. The original miniature came with a wicker backpack full of loot and victims. I swapped that for a banner topping from the ogre range featuring a crow's nest for a gnoblar. While this was an excellent opportunity for conversion and enhancing the story of Horkdor, the truth is I had also lost the original backpack at some point over the last 20 years (a hole in me bitz box!). Since he was losing his backpack full of loot, but still being a wandering, looting ogre..oid, I knew I would have to replace that to represent his pillaging through the streets of the city of the damned. I continued my own looting of the contemporary ogre sprues for a beer keg, some meat hooks, and a sidekick - another gnoblar to carry all the rest of the booty. (the gnoblars have names, too, but Horkdor can't be bothered to remember them). All these additions, plus the model's original appearance of scrappy rags of other people's uniforms stitched together whenever they were needed and found (usually still being worn by those other people), gave me the opportunity to continue my Contrast color exploration that began with Meegan the Fragrant. I knew I would need to use the now-familiar browns for the various wood pieces on the model, so I banned myself from using any browns on the rest of the model. The result is a colorful panoply that successfully draws attention to Horkdor as a separate entity (nay, force) from the rest of the Witch Hunters warband. All the Minions together, ready to supplement the Witch Hunters or future warbands... In the mix with the Witch Hunters. The whole gang together and ready for rampaging! Here you can really see Meegan and Horkdor stand out. That's a wrap for the Witch Hunters warband. My next few models recovered from bitz box purgatory are picked out for exploring more advanced techniques. As Contrast has proliferated, all those fancy pro painters on the interwebs have posted ways to (quickly) use them to replicate techniques like NMM, so I think I'll give them a whirl. Stay tuned!

    Way back when this whole silliness started, I used my free time between extra long “essential” shifts to knock out my Necromunda Enforcers and a display board... Then I tackled all my Marvel Crisis Protocol figs. I’ve since been laid off and slowly tinkering on my Samurai army, but I’ve had this little vignette sitting right next to my hobby desk the whole time:

    A while back, I bought into the Hexton Hills Kickstarter. The first round of files was released just this week and I ran a quick test print today: A nasty bit of stringing, but nothing that a few snips and a bit of filing can’t fix. I specifically did this one first, figuring it would be most difficult to print due to the extreme overhang of the tree canopy. Printed it without any support, hence the spaghetti, but otherwise it was a treat.

    I’ll have to break out everything I’ve done later on, but for now here’s the most recent model, a Terminator Captain. He had a rough time at the priming stage so I intended just to use him as a tester, but I think he turned out table ready in the end.

    One thing I’ve always advocated for was a return to the old Force Organization chart (1-2 HQ, 2-6 Troops, 0-3 Elite/Heavy/Fast, 0-1 LoW) and then allow players to manipulate the Force Org chart by spending CPs prior to gameplay. So, everybody might have 6 CP to start, but if you spend 1 CP you can add a fourth Heavy Support slot. Spend 3 CP to add a fourth, fifth, and sixth Heavy Support slot. This still lets people play their thematic Armored Battlegroups and First Company Veterans lists, but attaches an opportunity cost to it. Likewise, I think adding a second detachment of allies should be something that costs CP rather than something that adds to them. If you want to attach a platoon of Imperial Guard to your Space Marines, it should be because you value their contribution to the game or because you like the theme... You shouldn’t just be slapping the “Loyal 17” onto every army list because MOAR KOMMAND PINTS!

    Welcome to the end of the Third Month of the Cabin Fever Hobby Frenzy Challenge!!!!!!! This weeks special challenge is to work on your basing skills. Get creative and make an awesome base for a model(that may or may not be painted). Good luck and happy hobbying.! I'm going to leave this thread as the last thread, so keep posting your progress here. I look forward to seeing you all again. It is my hope that when the club reopens when might be able gather all of our freshly painted models into a giant diorama of progress!! I'd like to point out that there are some painting competitions out there that have actual prize support. https://www.goonhammer.com/the-goonhammer-annual-painting-contest-official-rules-and-information/

    I've got one. I haven't the slightest clue what a fair price for it would be, tho. Looking around on eBay, I can't find any singles, but there are a few of the various CCW sprues available as blisters. Based on those, call it maybe $3 including shipping. Sound reasonable?

    https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/06/04/taking-command-of-your-pointsgw-homepage-post-1/ Detachments COST Command Points, rather than giving them, with the exception of the detachment that our Warlord is in, as long as it's a Patrol, Battalion, or Brigade. Love it. If you take a more old-school "mixed arms" Battalion type list, you get max command points. If you want to take that all Terminators / Carnifex' / whatever army, or add some allies, you can, but at a cost.

    All, Tickets have been sent for your divisions. Please accept your ticket, then i will generate schedule and we can start. As noted, each division will have 1 AI team that you get to play against. Playoffs will be top 3 from each division with winner of division getting a bye (I will clear any MNG's during that bye week). No concessions. I want to play a game a week, but am a bit flexible if life happens. @WestRider I put you in the division 2.

    They’ve said that all the current codices will remain valid in the new edition (until they’re inevitably replaced by new ones because this hobby is basically just a complex Skinner Box and we just have to have that food pellet) which would imply that the dozens upon dozens of Stratagems in them will continue to work.

    https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/06/01/new-40k-the-game-you-love-but-bettergw-homepage-post-1/ Nothing really of note in this preview, other than there will now be a "Command Phase:" "The Command phase is a quick new addition to the turn sequence. In this phase, Battle-forged armies will acquire new Command points and spend the ones they have on certain Stratagems." Sounds pretty much like the Hero phase in AoS.

    I’m hoping to see 1,500 Points become a good, viable game size. That’s enough for a demi-company of Space Marines with one or two supporting vehicles, a platoon of Imperial Guard with a squadron of Leman Russ backing them up, or even a lance of unsupported Knights. Thats my personal “sweet spot” for the game.

    Then there’s things like ten infantry models for $35... For a kit that’s been around twenty years... and you’re going to need five or six boxes, minimum, for an moderately competitive army. 🙄 Like I said earlier in this thread, the ever increasing scale of the game has really turned me off. Part of it is the time sink of trying to play a complete game, part of it is feeling like the table is too damn cramped, and part of it is purely financial. I mean... I can slap together a Bolt Action army of comparable size to any 40k army for less than half the price. I can put together a Pike & Shotte or Black Powder army for a quarter the price. I could build a De Bellis Antiquitatis army for less than the price of a single blister packed 40k figure... Value is subjective and all that, but I don’t know if I feel like 40k is offering me the right level of value anymore. I’m not going to jump on the Ruined Forever! bandwagon, but I’m also not tripping over myself in a rush to buy the new rulebook.

    The Black Ark Corsairs is an absolutely gorgeous bit of kit. They were my absolutely favorite unit back when I had a Dark Elf army in WHFB 7th and 8th Edition... But, man, were they a [Witch Elf] to get to rank up properly.

    I've got a bunch of models I don't want that I'd like to trade for models that I do want. I'll sell if I can't trade. Not interested in splitting each army. I'd like Primaris Marines (anything non ETB), Space Marine non-bike vehicles, Tau infantry or vehicles, or anything non- ETB Stormcast Eternals. I don't even care if it's not a super close trade, as long as it's not an insulting offer. I do have more pics that I can send/post if that's necessary. Eldar (most primed white, a couple partly painted) $100 cash value or so 2 warlocks 1 wraith guard 7 warp spiders 2 fire dragons Fire dragon Phoenix lord (damaged axe) 9 striking scorpions 3 weapon platforms + 6 crew Wood Elves (mix of painted poorly, bare metal, and primed white) $300 cash value or so 16 dryads 2 treemen 4 wayfinders 3 eagles 14 war dancers 16 archers (plastic) 2 archer commands 15 Glade Guard 1 spear command complete, 2 partial 2 scouts, 1 scout champion

    New KS for Nemesis. I have played the core game a few times and found it really fun, and it gives a very narrative/theatrical feel. Very much feels like you are playing a game of Alien, and you probably won't survive...

    It took me over 3 weeks of painting in my spare time, but the my first unit of Tuareg (Moorish) cavalry is finally done. With the addition of this last unit, my display case is full. I had previously relocated a half shelf of Mordheim & Frostrgrave warbands to wall mounted display cases to make room for the first few units of Moors, but I see now that I will need to find a new display case for my This Is Not A Test warbands as well.

    Apparently there was some sort of Q&A today about the new edition (was at work so missed it), but Blood of Kittens put up this summary: -1 cap for modifiers6s always hitNova (Mike Brandt) missions look to be for match play. Forge world rules taken over by GW main!!!!😍😍 Deathwatch will be one of the first new codexes, they get the new marines. CP based on game size. Detachments still a thing but sound kinda pointless now. Overwatch reworked and units leaving combat can take damage. Monsters get blast rules and can shoot into combat when stuck. You have to play with terrain for competitive games. Obscured back! Block LoS “Combat attrition” in moral phase sounds like stat reductions will happen. “Terror units” will now do different things than minus to ld “Blast” is a keyword and is based on weapons not the unit will be added in appendix with new rules for all weapons that have it. “Psychic Awakening” will be folded into new codexes as they happen and some stuff may be trimmed from them as they go.
