  1. Just wondering if Ordo has one and if not, who would be the person to talk to about getting that done. The benefits would be having a place to hang out and chat with other ordos with actual voice, plus the added benefit of having a nice streaming platform for other forms of gaming or whatever.
  2. @Raindog I've been using it for over a year. It is actually pretty darn easy. I'd be happy to run through some tutorials on getting things started and setup. Let me know when it works. We could easily do a group session too.
  3. For those of you who have Company of Heroes for PC (steam), the Operation Market Garden mod is alive and well. The mod turns the WWII RTS into a table top wargame in 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 matches. 1v1s can be played for learning and testing purposes, but no xp gain for units. There's a discord server as well now. Info can be found at the web site: http://www.omgmod.net/frontpage.php while we are stuck at home, here's a great way to get in some fantastic wargaming action in.
  4. From what I have read, it seems an improvement. The previous version was simply too complicated with so many rules that it just bogged the game down. Just to shoot you had to measure range, figure out the arcs for each weapon, then see what points of the target were within that arc, could you group that weapon, figure out your target number...AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! And we aren't even talking about the great Bolding incident of 1911 which swamped the last rulebook making it nearly unreadable. Yikes. So I'm a big fan of anything that speeds up the game and makes it easier to play. The models and lore for the game are fantastic. Where it always flagged was the actual playing. So if that becomes better, then I will be very happy that I held on to my models.
  5. Looking for the chaos dudes that come with the Escalation box. This has a heavy stubber dude, and some funky guy with a flame weapon. Let me know if you have a set for sale or trade.
  6. I ran my Corpus Brethren chaos marines last night vs Gordianus's Orks. This was the first time we had played using non power level armies and using warlord traits and CPs. We did the 500pt mission and lists. Chaos came out strong, putting serious casualties on a shoota boyz mob, taking down a killa kan, and then charging into a slugga boyz mob with a greater possessed and a chaos lord, slaughtering orks a plenty. Then the warboss ran over, bringing along the shoota boyz and charged into the melee. The kans continued their advance towards the oblits, but shot at some chaos marines and actually felled one. The grand melee saw more sluggas killed and some wounds put on the two chaos models. Chaos once again fired into the killa kans as all other targets were engaged in melee. Another kan dropped. Meanwhile, another greater possessed charged into the scrum to hopefully fell the ork warboss. However, despite all attacks going on the warboss, his 4++ saved him from all but one hit which did two wounds to him. The chaos lord was down to a single wound and one of the possessed carried three. The ork boyz had remained unscathed due to the resilience of the warboss. The might of the WAAAAGGGHHHH! shone thru. First the warboss was able to finish off the wounded possessed. The chaos lord was dropped by the remaining slugga boyz. The last greater possessed once again failed to wound the warboss. The last killa kan charged into the obliterators and wiffed, but only took one wound in return, its armor turning aside the powerful fists. The chaos marines now had a target in the slugga boyz, dropping several more...the remaining looked to flee until the warboss smashed down three of them to convince the rest to stay. The killa kan wounded a oblit and once again its armor protected it from destruction. The last greater possessed was felled by the warboss who's invuln save would not fail. With the battle securely in hand, the warboss decided it was best to retreat with what was left of his forces and fell back. The killa kan killed an obliterator and wounded the other before finally falling to the crushing fist of the last oblit. The marines, watching the battle slip away from them, moved forward and fired into the two boyz units, dropping one of the last two shootas, and dropping a few sluggaz. However both units passed their morale tests. Special shout out to @Inquisitor66 for helping us out with the rules and some tactical advice. It was a fun game. After the first turn, it really looked like the orks were just going to get wiped off the board, but then suddenly, they couldn't seem to fail a 4+ save at all. Law of Averages stated that ork warboss should have died. Freaking WAAGHHH breaking the LoA. 🙂 painting wise I got a unit of chaos marines done, a greater possessed, and two oblits.

  10. Actually, I like giving Pretre lots of money....
  11. See, that's my problem. I have space wolves, orks, tau, GSC, eldar, necrons, chaos marines, slannesh deamons, ad mech, and imperial knights. I think so far the only book I could skip would be the blood angels and nids.
  12. That new Gaz model is crazy go nutz. By the way, are the Psychic Awakening books worth getting? I was tempted by the Greater Good one as I have both Tau and GSC. And now the latest has Orks and Space Wolves which I also have. At $40 a book, not exactly the cheapest thing to get.
  13. Mantic also has an egyptian themed undead army called the Empire of Dust: https://www.manticgames.com/games/kings-of-war/empire-of-dust/ mantic also sells movement trays. Now they are sized for their specific unit sizes, but they might satisfy some of your needs.
