    The infection is spreading

    So, at this point, It looks like we might be bringing Team D, as well as two or maybe THREE more Ohio teams to OFCC. Our unrelenting lobbying and bullying is paying off!

    WE DID IT! OFCC 2019 COMPLETE!! Well, what can we say? Did we all have a great time? Did we all get 5 great games? Did we all make new friends, enemies, or even frienemies (half friend, half enemy)? I certainly did! I would like for all of you take this time while basking in the afterglow of gaming glory to reach out and say "THANK YOU" to the following people who worked very hard to make all of OFCC a reality. @Blustorm - Club Treasurer and Historian, this guy rocks it! Not only did he successfully run the very first OFCC boardgame event (M-A-R-S), he was on hand to ringer for Ordo Bowl AND was available to pack up all the terrain used for the entire event. @ninefinger - Club Consul and all round dreamboat, his calm demeanor and stellar attitude kept all of us in a good place all weekend. He frequently manned the admin table and handled many issues that always come up at the last minute. @evil_bryan - All of us can only hope to look so good at 50! THE guy running the 40K event this year. All I heard was good things from the 40K players. From the missions to the event pins and trophies to the completely 3D printed 6x4 table, we are always happy to see his work appreciated. @Weav - I have to really give it to him. He runs one helluva event. Huge turn outs. Lots of fun. I never could imagine Blood Bowl could be so popular until I met him. @Burk - Crushed in with the very first Ordo BRAFT at OFCC. Everyone needs to buy this guy a diet coke whenever they see him. He stores and transports all the table toppers that pretty much every game system is played on except Blood Bowl, yet he only plays Blood Bowl. THAT is some gamer love right there. @Raindog - Pub Quiz Maestro and Pro-Consul, this guy orangized the Fluger Bag Raffle that raised over $500 dollars for our dear friend. This guy always helps with everything from table setup and to tear down. @Exile - So, when everyone got home did they look inside their swag bag? Did you find one of the most awesome giveaways possible in the form of a OFCC 2019 velcro-backed patch? If you think it is as awesome as I do, please tell this guy. He also orchestrated the entire weekend of Infinity events. @peter.cosgrove - TO for the 40K ITC Open, he ran one of the most casual and relaxed ITC events I have ever seen. He also put in hard work to make enough terrain for three full tables. And then we went on to lead a 40K team through the events of the weekend. @ROGRE - The strong and silent type, this guy helps out where ever he is needed. Admin table, disciplinary committee, and all round great Mars player, we want this guy there every year. @Jay - This year he really got to shine as the creator and designer of the OFCC 2019 logo. @Dark Trainer Our secret weapon for merchandise and sponsorship. This guy arranges to have the shirts and pint glasses made. He solicits stores and companies for the prize support used for the raffle and giveaways. Then he went on to captain an entire team of OFCC newbies! @Bosco - our newest member of the Senate, he took his hazing with a smile and is still showing up the club. Good on ya! This list is by no means extensive. There are so many other responsibilities and duties that need attention and are not mentioned here. OFCC is never just one person. It is the entire club, its members, and its spirit. For the Good of the Order!

    And now for the best list of all. By no means is this conclusive. We had many people purchase tickets for other people. This is a list of individuals with confirmed ticket purchases. I do know that we had the largest turn out ever for the most game diverse weekned at an OFCC. All of the folks on this list put their faith in us to provide a great weekend. Their support funded the venue, the terrain, the trophies, the giveways, the favorite opponent pins and many other things. This is in alphabetical order.

    Now Thanks for our Heads of Gaming: These folks stepped up to the gaming table and said "I will show them the way." They put themselves out there to provide quality events for all our attendees. They worked hard on developing the event packets and missions. They solicited for prize support. They worked with Ordo Fanaticus to make sure all aspects of the hobby were accounted for and that sportsmanship was held to a higher standard than most other events. Please join me in saying "THANK YOU" for all the work they did.

    WHOA, that happened at OFCC

    During my second game, we overheard Blood Bowl calling “Dice Down”. We stopped playing 40k, and after cleaning up the table realized we had another hour for the game. Finished it by having a beer with my opponent in the bar.

    My New Armageddon Pattern Basilisk

    Hey all - I'm actually finally getting around to working on a Death Korps of Krieg army, and one of my support vehicles is an Armageddon Pattern Basilisk. I've been posting the progress down in the Artificiers Forge board, but I'd figured I'd post the "finished for now" photos here as well. I will likely go back and add some additional weathering when a few more vehicles are completed so I can keep the weathering consistent, but it's ready for the table! Full photo-set at the link below, but I've attached a few good high-resolution photos to this post to give you an idea of the final product! https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/11/armageddon-pattern-basilisk-done.html

    Okay, now that I have an appropriate click bait title for what can be an emotionally charged issue I can get started. 🙂 After answering this question for one of the captains, I thought it would be useful to post my position so others had the opportunity to judge me harshly. 🙂 Not having list rating in this year's 40K OFCC reflects my personal opinion on it not being worth the effort it takes. I have a few issues with list rating that I am happy to share to better frame my decision not to have it. List rating requires early list submission, which historically has been a challenge for many teams List rating is terribly subjective, and the only way to minimize that is to have lots of raters reviewing the same lists to come to an average score List rating is very time intensive, which is multiplied as you have more the one person rating the same lists List rating requires an encyclopedic knowledge of all of the various 40K armies, rules, and unit interactions Finally, list rating causes drama because regardless of how hard you try there will be folks who are unhappy with their rating My alternative to list rating is reward versus restriction. With achievements like Old School and No Surprises, I want to encourage people to build friendlier lists and openly share them with the community (who can provide feedback as needed.) Also, tools like Challenge matches and the Captain's forum can also be leveraged to further enhance the team/player experience. It is not a perfect system and still needs work, but I believe it is the better way to go. Now that I have said my piece, let the judging and feedback commence!

    In the grand world of the game, there are many ways to play and many places to play. Some people prefer the garage with their good friends. Some like to push the limit of the rules to face stomp their opponents. At Ordo, we like sportsmanship and hobbists. We don't mind losing, but we want it to be a fun game at the hands of an opponent we would gladly play again. We want community builders, not hobby killers. If our style is not yours, go create your own community. We've spent almost 18 years making this one. When you have run over a decade of 40 man tournaments, let us know what works for you.

    Watching the look on my opponenet's face as I get first turn with my GSC against his three knights. He never played against GSC and looked slightly worried. Got my butt totally kicked in that game but totally worth that first turn look of concern.

    As I complete the 40K missions, I will be posting them here for review and play testing (some of you may remember some of my dodgy scoring mechanics from last year). 🙂 You are open to comment and provide feedback whether you are attending OFCC or not. With that being said, here is the first mission: 2019 OFCC 40K - Mission 1 Smoke Screen Description: Pyres and fires and smoke…oh my! Between the smoky battlefield and shifting winds, defeating your opponent may be a challenge. Deployment: Vanguard Strike Special Rules: Place 3 Objective Markers on the diagonal centerline, one in the middle and two 24” from each corner Fires and Smoke: Place two Pyre markers 24” from each short table edge in the center of the table. Each marker leaves a 12” path of smoke blowing in a random direction. Roll a d6 at the beginning of each game turn to determine direction. (Note: Direction is relevant to the player who takes first turn) Right - >> Left - << Towards - vv Away - ^^ Away from each other - <> Towards each other - >< Any ranged attack that crosses a single line of smoke is considered Low Visibility and Hit Roles have a -1 penalty. With two lines of smoke, Hit Roles have a -2 penalty. Primary Scoring: At the end of the game, each objective marker is worth 2 victory points to the player who controls it. A player controls an objective marker if they have more models within 3" than their opponent. Bonus Scoring: If you killed a non-vehicle model while shooting in Low Visibility – 1 Point If you destroyed a vehicle while shooting in Low Visibility – 2 Points 2019 OFCC 40K - Mission 2 Fallout Description: It’s time for the annual “gift” exchange on this world. Make sure to leave your “gift” in a place your opponent will be sure to find it. Deployment: Dawn of War Special Rules: Each player will receive a Fallout token to be placed in their opponent’s deployment zone prior to deployment. The token must be placed on the table surface or on the lowest level of a terrain feature. Each token emits radiation for 9” in every direction. For every model that ends its movement phase partially or completely within the radiation bubble, roll a die. On a 4+, that model suffers a mortal wound. Primary Scoring: Every 100 points worth of enemy units destroyed by the end of the game (rounded to the nearest 100) is worth 1 Victory Point. Bonus Scoring: If your Fallout zone killed at least one enemy model – 1 point If your Fallout zone kills at least two of your own models – 2 points 2019 OFCC 40K - Mission 3 Maelstrom’s Fate Description: Your mission is unclear. Do you forge ahead with what you think is right, or let fate decide? Deployment: Hammer and Anvil Special Rules: At the start of each player turn, the active player will determine their current objective from the list below. Players can either choose from the list, or roll a d6 and let Fate decide. 1. Advance – None of your unit are in your deployment zone at the end of your turn 2. Behind Enemy Lines – At least one until completely in the enemy deployment zone at the end of your turn 3. Hold the Line – At least three units in your deployment zone and no enemy units in your deployment zone at the end of your turn, cannot be earned on the first turn. 4. Overwhelming Firepower – Destroyed an enemy unit in the shooting phase 5. Blood and Guts – Destroyed an enemy unit in the fight phase 6. Area Denial – No enemy models within 6” of the center of the battlefield at the end of your turn Once an objective has been earned, it is no longer an option. If your Fate roll lands on a completed objective, re-roll the die. If an objective has not be completed at the end of your turn, you have the option of keeping that current objective for your next turn. Primary Scoring: For each chosen objective completed, a player will earn 1 victory point. For each Fate chosen objective completed, a player will earn 2 victory points. Completed Fate chosen objectives carried over for more than one round still count as a Fate chosen objective. Bonus Scoring: Completing 3+ objectives – 1 Point Letting Fate decide every objective – 2 Point 2019 OFCC 40K - Mission 4 Blink Description: With the battle raging, you worry the unstable infrastructure will restrict your ability to upload critical data. Your opponent is committed to make sure it does. Deployment: Search and Destroy Special Rules: Upload Transmission Locations: At the beginning of the game, each player places 3 Upload Transmission tokens on the battlefield One person will use tokens numbered 1,3,5 and the other will use 2,4,6 One token must be placed in your deployment zone, your opponent’s deployment zone and in no-man’s land Alternate deployment and roll off to see who places first Power Blink: Roll a d6 at the beginning of each player turn to determine which set of transmission locations are powered (odd or even). Any opponent can use a Command Point re-roll a Power Blink (active player or opponent). The active player can choose to use a Command Point, if they choose not to then the opponent can choose to use one and force the re-roll. Primary Scoring: At the end of the active players turn, they will score 1 point for each powered objective they control. Bonus Scoring: Using a Command Point to re-roll a Power Blink – 1 Point Using a Command Point to re-roll a Power Blink 3+ times – 2 Points 2019 OFCC 40K - Mission 5 Press your Luck Description: Play it safe or risk it all, only you can decide…unless your opponent decides for you! Deployment: Front-line Assault Special Rules: At the beginning of the game, place 5 objective on the battlefield One in the center, and one in the middle of each table quadrant At the end of the active players turn, they can choose to Score or Hold each objective they control If the objective was not previously held, it is worth 1 point If the objective was held for 1 turn, on a 2+ it is worth 3 points If the objective was held for 2 turns, on a 3+ it is worth 7 points If you fail your role when claiming a held objective, it is worth 1 point If you lose control of a held objective prior to scoring it, the previously held turns do not carry over to future scoring Primary Scoring: Tally the total points scored during each game turn Bonus Scoring: If you held 2+ objectives during the game – 1 Point If you stopped your opponent from scoring a held objective: – 2 Points

    So a few more shots... First the female magus which screamed "Wakanda" for me, so I ran with it: I also have the Patriarch done at this point - again, set up to match the coloration of my Tyranid army: Finally we get to some of the heavy hitters - 10 Aberrants (including 2 hypermorphs) and an Abominant... I'm going to be running the equivalent of a Twisted Helix list, so I wanted them to have the "I used to be a human" sort of feel...

    With the recent purchase of a decent 3D printer, I thought my first lofty goal would be to build an entire 4x6 terrain table for 40K. Here is the layout for Tile #1: One down, 23 more to go! Why Corvus X? All of the files I have used so far came from Corvus Games Terrain and X refers to the unknown number of filament spools it will take to complete this project. 🙂 My goal is to have it completed and painted in time for this year's OFCC.

    Okay, time for a massive update! First, I did print a ton of barrels for scatter terrain Next, I decided this table would be more manageable as a whole if I built six 2x2 tiles. So I began the process of assembling and arranging everything printed to date. Here is Tile #1 (each tile has two images): Here is Tile #2: Tile #3: Tile #4 Tile #5: The final tile is still in process (I am reworking the pipe tile), but here is a shot of the everything done to date. FYI - Pete is in the shot for scale purposes only, I did not print him. 🙂

    He has returned...

    Posted 05/03/2019 Abaddon Revealed 80 days ago, we made a promise* – that Vigilus would belong to the Warmaster. You’ve speculated, you’ve gazed into the depths of madness with the Daemon Engine and you’ve clamoured for more news on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page. At last, the countdown is over. Take a look at this: That’s right – Abaddon the Despoiler is BACK. As the observant among you may have guessed, when we teased a new Primaris Lieutenant back at the LVO, we weren’t being entirely serious…** Abaddon is an integral part of Warhammer history – the star of countless books, campaigns and tabletop battles, this legendary overlord is perhaps second only to the Emperor as an icon of the 41st Millennium, and he definitely gets out more. The Warmaster has been one of the chief architects of the Imperium’s current woes, and it’s only fitting that he returns now with a new model. The original Abaddon miniature was a classic, and in this new model you can see the inspiration from Jes Goodwin’s iconic designs. The Talon of Horus is every inch the barbaric and intimidating weapon that killed Sanguinius, while the screaming, twisting form of Drach’nyen is brought to life as never before. Even among the twisted arsenal of the Heretic Astartes, these implements of war stand out as truly terrifying. This incarnation of Abaddon is also a lot bigger, standing nearly as tall as a Primarch, towering over other Chaos Space Marines and making for an instantly eye-catching addition to any collection. This model draws from decades of art and lore to provide a definitive, rich representation of an iconic character. No detail has been spared in this kit, with every armour piece replete with rivets, battle damage and barding that speaks to the Warmaster’s millennia at war. We know that Abaddon means different things to different fans. Ask one person, and they’ll tell you about Abaddon the arch-traitor, a devoted servant of the Chaos Gods who seeks only to destroy and despoil. Ask another, and they’ll tell you about Abaddon the visionary, the liberator – the charismatic lord of a recast brotherhood. You’ll be able to customise the model to fit how you see Abaddon the Despoiler, with a choice of three heads. One, snarling and wrenched with fury, cleaves closely to the classic representation of the character. Another, wrought in the visage of Horus, pays homage to his dark heritage. A final head depicts Abaddon with a respirator, giving him a brutal, impersonal feel, tying him to the masked, savage warriors he leads in battle. Abaddon’s cloak is also optional, giving you yet another way to personalise your model. Of course, Abaddon’s return is bad news for Vigilus – and he will be released alongside the thrilling finale to the Imperium Nihilus series, Vigilus Ablaze… Vigilus Ablaze Vigilus now stands on the precipice of annihilation, as the war for control over the Nachmund Gauntlet enters its next phase. Chaos has arrived in force on Vigilus, spearheaded by the Black Legion itself. Hardened by millennia of relentless combat and fresh from blood-soaked subjugations in the Imperium Nihilus, they are a force of nightmares, combining the ancient might of the Space Marine Legions with unspeakable and unholy gifts. Where the previous Imperium Nihilus book focused on the varied forces of the War of Beasts, Vigilus Ablaze is all about Chaos, bringing to life the vast and myriad forces gathered to annihilate this once-impregnable world. A wealth of rules content will expand your options for Chaos armies enormously, with Specialist Detachments, new datasheets and more. Perhaps you’ll strike from the skies with a pack of Raptors led by Haarken Worldclaimer – or crush your foes beneath a clanking tide of hell-forged metal with hunting packs of Daemon Engines. Shadowspear and Abaddon are the start of a bold new era for Chaos. As those of you who’ve been following the Daemon Engine might have guessed, there’s an army of new models waiting to be revealed, including some things you’ve never seen before and new takes on units you know and love – like this guy. What’s this Havoc carrying? Looks like the Warpsmiths have been cooking up some new guns. Emperor, help us all… Stay tuned! Over the next few weeks, we’ll be guiding you through the best set of releases for Chaos Space Marines ever with regular in-depth previews right here. If you’re now looking to start a Black Legion army (and who could blame you?), make sure to pre-order Shadowspear this weekend, which will give you the core of your new Heretic Astartes force! * Well, technically, it was Haarken Worldclaimer. ** Though he does come with an unfortunate loyalist victim on his base.

    Thanks for OFCC and recap!

    OFCC was a blast to play in! I gave Pete a bad time about Friday's tournament- sorry about that! I'm not a fan of the ITC (personal thing). Despite my team, Plan B, being a "Ringer Team", I had a blast. The focus on achievements instead of winning was very refreshing and made for awesome army lists. I only faced one min/maxed army list, and still managed to pull out a tie. I don't think I ever saw anything about a gift exchange with my opponents, so felt really, really lame when I was given a lot of great swag and I had nothing to give them. Thanks to Dave (teammate), he at least went out and got some brushes to give to the other players for our team. It was hugely refreshing not to encounter a bunch of meta, hyper competitive army lists. Painting was spot on! I think every army was well painted. I thought I would be one of the few Ultramarines army, and it turns out I was one of five or six playing them! I got a lot of compliments on my painting though, and that made all the work and effort worth it! I had three new units in my Primaris Ultramarines- a Plasma Redemptor, Repulsor Executioner, and Eliminators. The Redemptor wasn't bad, but I wish the Macro Plasma Incinerator did more than 1 or 2 damage. The Eliminators were good, but really had trouble wounding anything with S4. Now that their sniper shots are S5, I expect that to change significantly. The only downside is max unit size of three models and they are a heavy support unit. The Executioner... did well. I parked it a lot with either a Captain or Marneus Calgar and a LT nearby and it was baller. I wish it was about 50-100 points cheaper, but it is what it is. The downside: too many stupid weapon profiles. Eight different weapon profiles. EIGHT! Come on GW! Highlights for me: MVP Marneus Calgar. His reroll hits aura was invaluable. Even better: He punched an Imperial Knight to death, put down the Swarmlord, ground to dust several Necron Warriors and Immortals before snuffing out a Necron Lord, sanitized a Nurgle Plague Lord, showed that just because you are called the Emperor's Champion doesn't make you the Emperor's Champion, and never took more than five wounds in a battle. If I had any doubts about how good Calgar is, they were put to rest over the course of five OFCC games. Overall, OFCC was one of the best tournaments I've ever played in. Thanks!

    PLEASE NOTE: This is Version 1 of the Guide and it may change as we get closer to the event Welcome to the 2019 OFCC 40K Team Event Players Guide! (as of 3/12/2019) This post will outline everything you need to know to play in this year's 40K Team event. This is a 2 day, 5 round event on August 17th and 18th. As you read through this guide, you will notice that this event is not referred to as a tournament. OFCC is about focusing on the experience and not the outcome. There is nothing wrong with wanting to perform well and to celebrate victory, but if that is your sole motivator for playing at OFCC then you may be disappointed. The Basics: This a team event and it requires every player to be a member of a team in order to participate If you are new to Ordo or new to OFCC this can feel like a pretty big barrier, but there are several options available to you Join an existing team As players come and go from our hobby and our area, we have existing teams looking to fill opening with new players These connections are normally made through the Ordo forums, but can also be done through the Ordo Facebook group Watch for posts and/or start a post and make your interest known Start a new team Due to the popularity of the event, we are regularly adding new teams of players to join us annually Taking the initiative to join other interested players to form a new team is a great way to dive into the OFCC experience with both feet Offer to play as a ringer If you are not ready to make the commitment to join an existing team or start a new one and would just like to check out OFCC, maybe offering to be a ringer would be a better fit Ringers are standby players who are available to fill in due to absence or illness during the event weekend Although there is no guarantee of play, many times ringers have an opportunity get a game or two in over the weekend If anyone is interested in playing and doesn't know where to start, you can always reach out to me via email or PM Team Requirements: The team size is 4 players One team member must be designated as the Captain Due to the added responsibility required of being a team captain, players must be approved to become a team captain Approval can be through forum post, PM, or email A list of all teams and their approved captains will posted publicly and updated regularly Becoming a Captain: For returning captain's, the approval process will be little more than a formality as they are generally familiar with the duties and responsibilities required for that role For new captains, the approval process is not designed to serve a gate to restrict your access to the event but rather an opportunity to prepare you to be successful in that role and ensure you want to take on the additional responsibility Any player looking to become a captain for their team can contact me via email, PM, or through the dedicated post that will be started shortly after this guide is published Captain's Responsibilities: Team Captains are the true heroes of OFCC, and greatly contribute to what makes this event a success. Team Captains will be asked to: Submit a Team Roster by email or PM containing the following details as they receive them: Review the team's army lists and have them submitted on time Remind their team to purchase their event tickets Ensure the team meets OFCC painting and basing minimums Educate new players about the spirit of OFCC Determine player matches during the event Review scoring sheets and report game results during the event List Rating and Matches: There will be no list rating this year, but captains are expected to review and submit lists prior to the event Once again this will be a Team vs Team competition, with Captains determining the match ups each round Also, Teams will have the ability to prearrange Challenge Matches for each of their games on Saturday (3 in total) Challenge Matches: Challenge matches are optional, and not required for play on Saturday All challenge matches must be prearranged by 8/1/2018 Both Captains must agree to the challenge match After 8/1, challenge matches cannot be changed Challenge matches must be arranged through the Captain's forum, via email, or by sending me a PM Challenge matches must be confirmed by me before they will be scheduled, do not assume it is been scheduled until you receive your confirmation A list of all confirmed challenge matches will be publicly posted List Building Restrictions: OFCC is about celebrating our hobby, demonstrating good sportsmanship, and playing fun games. Players are encouraged to bring armies that reinforce those values. This event is designed to encourage and reward players who embrace the experience. The army size must be no more than 2,000 points It can include any 40K units from any number of 40K approved Games Workshop or Forgeworld sources The maximum number of detachments your army can contain is 4 The number of times each datasheet can be included is 4 (6 for Troops and for Dedicated Transports) List Building Guidance: Over the years, OFCC has taken many approaches to list construction. We have used rating systems, review processes, unit restrictions, and list building guidelines with varying degrees of success. All of these systems were used to serve a common purpose, which was to foster an environment where every player had their best chance to play 5 great games. This year, I will outline a few things to avoid when building your lists for OFCC. Baring the near countless special abilities present in the units across the 40K universe, most things can be boiled down to their lethality and durability. When you compare the damage dealt or taken versus their points cost, you will develop a sense of how lethal or durable they are in comparison to other units in your army and, with enough experience, their overall effectiveness in the larger universe. It is not a bad thing to want to make good choices for your army or play with the best units, the problem is when those choices are taken to the extreme. When that happens then there is little room for casual or friendly play. Enough preaching, here is the actual outline: It is okay to take effective units from your Codex, but avoid maximizing those choices Extremely lethal or extremely durable units can be unpopular, use with caution Building a force that dominates one phase of the game will always be tough on your opponent Take advantage of the relative safety of the OFCC gaming environment to make diverse and unique choices for your army. Between Captain's match ups and challenges rounds, it would be hard to find a better place to bring something crazy and different. Captains will be asked to review list from their team and will be encouraged to post that list on the Captain's forum to review with their peers. Event Specific Rules: This event will use the Games Workshop 8th Edition 40K rules and the Games Workshop official FAQ documents Some beta rules are under consideration and this section will be updated if they are allowed in the event UPDATE - The beta Adeptus Custodes rules from Forgeworld have been approved for use If there is something specific you would like to be considered, please ask What to Bring: Your painted and based army (see Painting and Basing Requirements) Dice Tape measure A printed copy of your army list A good attitude and desire to have fun Painting and Basing Requirements: All models within OFCC armies must be fully painted and based Painting must include 3+ colors Effort must be made to transform or replace the bare plastic base Models that fail to meet the event minimum cannot be used during the event Models, Counts As and WYSIWYG: Games Workshop models are not required for this event Alternate models should reflect the same scale as the Games Workshop equivalent Weapon upgrades and certain model specific wargear should be represented on the equipped model It is impossible to outline all the examples, so here is a good rule to follow If a unit would be impacted by the removal of something equipped to a specific model (banner, special weapon, etc.) then it must be represented Proxies are not allowed in the 40K Team Event A proxy is a placeholder when you don't have an appropriate model to use Counts As armies are allowed during the 40K event with the following guidelines: Effort must be made to represent the model/unit in question Representation must be consistent across the army It is the responsibility of the player who bring a Counts As army to inform their opponent early and often about what is being represented Any specific questions or additional guidance should be directed to me Awards: The Team Based Awards available this year will be: Best Painted Best Spirit Marshall Johnson Award (Best Sportsman) Best Overall Best Overall will be calculated from 40% Sports, 25% Painting, 30% Spirit, and 5% Captain Achievements The list of Captain Achievements will be published prior to the event Note: Although we do not award a Best General, we do track battle scores and use them to break ties in all award categories Also, the bonus award Roll For Initiative will earned by the first fully paid 40K team Missions: The Mission Pack will be published on June 1st and will contain all 5 of the OFCC 40K Missions.

    Hey all! I am the captain of team Kill! Maim! Beer!, and we are looking for two players to fill out our roster for this year's 40k team event. Perks of joining our team include (but are not limited to): one KMB branded pint glass, an undisclosed quantity of free beer and/or whiskey, solid (but not impeccable) team paint scores, and the opportunity to game with @Gorgosaurusrex and I (we may be twins, but I swear we are different people). An ideal candidate will have some or all of these desired qualifications: takes a laid-back approach to playing 40k (values having a good time more than winning), likes beer (not mandatory), and... well, that's it. Bonus points if you bring an army with snow bases, which will match ours! I will be bringing my World Eaters army and Greg will likely field his Valhallans, in case you were wondering. If you are interested in applying for the position, please submit your resume and cover letter either as a post here or a PM (kidding, but that would be funny). Cheers!

    Thanks to everyone who came out and played this weekend. I know lots of people love to see the scores from weekend, so let's waste no time. 🙂 Although we do not award a Best General, I do track performance as well. 🙂

    WHOA, that happened at OFCC

    So I figured I'd start a thread about those awesome, shenanigan, memorable, or wild moments. Doesn't have to be about the game either (could just be a funny social situation, etc). Keep it positive, no griping or grumbling. My shenanigan: my game two was an EXCELLENT game against a great opponent. My shenanigan was being tabled turn 4, but placed all 6 of my objective markers too far away from him to get to using veil of darkness to teleport across the board to a corner in his deployment, we let the game run to turn 6 to see if he could make it, game ended before turn 7 and I won, even though I was tabled turn 4. The best part was both of us tried to advocate the other should win (Bryan helped settle rule as per the sheet). We laughed, and had a great time. Tell us your stories!

    Announcing the Siege of Psi Delta-X Join us for our summer Kill Team campaign and stake your claim on the elusive space station Psi Delta-X. This will be a map based campaign, with a prize draw every month. How do you participate?! By playing games of Kill Team. Designed to be flexible, the campaign allows playing at 100 pt, 125 pt or 200pt levels, and using any of the available supplements you feel like. It will also reward: Playing multiple factions Painting your models Sharing snacks with others Playing a completely different game, and then squeezing in a quick kill team game before you have to go home Coercing your friends into giving it a try, after all, games finish in like 45 minutes, and they already have all the models they need anyways… And so much more! Can’t make it down to wow to play? That’s fine! Play games where you want and report them, to capture one of the many satellites surrounding Station Psi Delta-X. All the details are coming very soon! Expect pictures of the revolutionary Force scOrg sheets, the map that will track all of your progress, and lots of witty (okay, fine… passably clever) banter from the Station’s supervisor - @ninefinger

    Had a great time at the Fluger Fundraiser tourney on Saturday. It was my first games of 8th since it first hit and my first 40k tourney in several years. My thoughts: 1. Fluger is still one of the coolest dudes on the planet. 2. Lord Hanaur knows how to run a tournament. 3. Why do I keep wanting Space Marines to be better than they are, edition after edition? Maybe one of these days I will learn. 4. I suck at a lot (A LOT) of games but my level of suck at 40k is truly epic. 5. I have never played ITC rules before. Man, they really punished my MSU army! 6. Drop Pods suck. 7. I actually want to play more! Now that I have a better idea of how the game works, I might do better. But probably not.

    Hah. It looks like two teams this year, with Don joining one of them. And... four more people talking about saving up to go next year. People are super excited.

    New Hobby Shop in North Portland

    Popped into Hobbies Unlimited on my way to work today. Tiny little mom'n'pop type place, mostly model railroad, model cars, and RC planes. But they've recently branched out into the geekier end of things with a tiny little rack of Games Workshop stuff, some Gundam models, and so forth. Very friendly staff and a very pleasant "hanging out in grandpa's workshop" kind of vibe to the whole place. Since most of their focus seems to be on traditional models, instead of wargaming, they've got all kinds of neat tools you don't nomrally find in game stores: Tamiya paints, LED lights, files, screwdrivers, jigs, and all sorts of gadgets, gizmos, whozits, and whatzits... They're located at the corner of N Prescott and N Interstate, with a Yellow Line Max stop almost directly in front of the store. Right now they've got a Post-Christmas Sale going on for a lot of stuff... Including 20% Off on Games Workshop. Hint-hint. Here in Portland, us nerds aren't exactly hurting for choice when it comes to friendly local game stores. But the more the merrier!

    cyberwolf kitbash

    These wolves needed a 6th member so why not kitbash a Cyberwolf out of a Chaos Hound, Tyranid tail, and some other bits from my box? Story: Blown up in battle, a Fenrisian she-wolf was miraculously found still clinging to life. The Ironpriest rebuilt her, stronger and faster than before (6-million dollar man style) and brought his favorite wolf back to the pack as a Cyberwolf.

    Is there any way we can get a score on whining? Because then I'll have something I might be able to win. Or maybe just an award for best whiner? But seriously, I don't know how you would get a good set of list raters with this edition of 40K. The immense knowledge of every faction and every strategem....no thank you. Hell, the sheer scope of it kept me from even trying to be a ringer this year. I was afraid my ignorance would cause my opponent to have a bad game. There was a time when there were no teams and no captains, and you needed the list rating in order to match people up. But now that the current system is in place, and the captains are doing their job, it seems its working. And there is nothing wrong with people not liking the OFCC. From the start it was not for everyone. There are plenty of players out there that really wanted it to be a tournament, and kudos to the HOGs and Senators that have kept it an Event. LH has decided it isn't for him. There is nothing wrong with that. Seems to me there were plenty of people there that enjoyed the way it is.

    If it is an event where you don't care about winning, why care if your painting isn't good. I have yet to go to 40k OFCC with a completely painted army. I don't give a [big bad swear word] about winning anything except best sports. I couldn't care less. LH, you remain inscrutable.
