  1. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. As of now this league is 'cancelled' indefinitely. With the shelter indoors rules and being a class C crime until May 1st I can't see this in the foreseeable future. There's a high chance I won't be able to continue the league when this resumes and likely wouldn't have time for the culminating tournament. We'll have to see how this plays out. I will update more if/when things change. Stay safe and try this out while locked inside:
  2. Yeah, I enjoyed Borderlands 3 a lot. BL2 Tiny Tina's DLC remains the best content EVER, but BL3 is solid. The DLC is good too. Working through the latest DLC now. That said, agree that it's more linear and accessible. However, I love the multiplayer aspect now where your level 50 buddy can still play with you (the level scaling). Cooperation mode is awesome, and coopetition allows power leveling. It's a win win.
  3. With great sadness, game nights will be canceled until the bans lift as they are now. I'm going to work on postponing the league, or post all the missions and allow people to play at home, etc. Sorry for the bad news. One of those tough decisions.
  4. Should be 1000 points, but whatever you can field is fine. It's a casual league. I'll update the timeline in the rules post.
  5. This missions starts 3/14/2020! Google doc version for printing: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dUpJeKOF1ftzt1FtAF14b_J3Q5XNY4HU League week 3, Mission 3, Forgive me NARRATIVE Battle brothers, we have secured our position on this desolate rock. However, dire news has reached our lines. An altar of Chaos has been unearthed by the destruction of this war. We have been ordered to purge its heresy from existence. Prepare the Thunderfire cannons, all of them. But sir, we have friendlies in the area! I know, the Emperor protects and I hope they can forgive me...FIRE!!! ...Sir, they’re firing on our position. We need to retreat NOW! Hold your line soldier, you see those ancient relics near that altar? They are not Chaos, but command doesn’t know that! We must retrieve them at all costs! Sir, our vox is dead, we have no way to request a cease fire. I know, the Emperor protects, right? CHARGE!!! THE ARMIES Each player selects a 1000pt Battle-forged army with no more than 2 detachments. THE BATTLEFIELD Create a 4’x4’ (4’x6’, if more than 2 players) table with proper 40k terrain density. Setup one piece of area terrain to represent the altar in the center of the battlefield. The players then roll off and, starting with the winner, alternate placing objective markers until four have been placed within 12” of the center but not within 6” of another marker. DEPLOYMENT (one on one, two on two, or four man free for all) Use Front-Line Assault deployment (pg 217). Players roll off, highest roller picks deployment zone. Their opponent uses the other deployment zone. The players then alternate deploying their units, one at a time, starting with the player who did not pick their deployment zone. A player’s models must be set up within their own deployment zone (unless special rules allow otherwise). Continue setting up units until both sides have set up their army. FIRST TURN The player who finished setting up their army first can choose to take the first or second turn. If they decide to take the first turn, their opponent can roll a dice; on a roll of 6, they manage to seize the initiative, and they get the first turn instead! BATTLE LENGTH Chaotic explosions: Start of each battle round (not player turn) all of the objective markers move 3” from the explosions around them. Alternate who moves a marker first. Starting with the 2nd player, each player may move one objective 3” in any direction they choose until all 4 moved. You may not move an objective already moved in this turn. Friendly fire: Start of each battle round after chaotic explosions, roll a D6 for each objective marker. If a 6 is rolled, a direct hit has happened. The objective marker is removed from play and any units within 3” of it suffer 1 mortal wound. For every unit of yours that suffered a wound this way, score 1 victory point for their sacrifice to Khorne. At the end of battle round 5, roll a D6. On a 3+, the game continues. At the end of battle round 6, roll a D6. On roll of 4+, the game continues. The battle automatically ends at the end of battle round 7. VICTORY CONDITIONS At the end of the game, the player who has scored the most victory points is the winner. If both players have the same number of victory points, the game is a draw. Victory points are achieved for the following: Secured: At the end of the game, each objective marker still in play is worth 3 victory points to the player who controls it. Slay the Warlord: If the enemy Warlord has been slain during the battle, you score 1 victory point. First Strike: You score 1 victory point if any units from your opponent’s army were destroyed during the first battle round.

  6. Yup, any you can be in the league...even if not playing all the time, it's open to all 😎
  7. @NewPlayer, sounds like you have a matchup. I think they usually open around 3pm (barring any changes).
  8. @Inquisitor66, you thinking about a Sunday game? Looking for a matchup for @NewPlayer
  9. You should find it in the 40k section of the forums: https://www.ordofanaticus.com/forum/7-warhammer-40000/ I create the main posts in there every week. I'll be getting it up Saturday's as I can. In fact, i'm going to post them by Friday night now. I also make an announcement in the league rules post at the end: https://www.ordofanaticus.com/topic/213385-2020-winter-warzone-40k-escalation-league-rules/
  10. ACK! I won't make it for the league tonight, some things came up. Kahn will sub for me tonight. You can get the mission below. Be sure to PM me your scores, or turn them into @DisruptiveConduct tonight. Thanks! Hope you enjoy!
  11. I do recommend setting up a game in advance on the Sunday game night thread. Tuesday nights has larger crowds for sure.
  12. $40 a book? sheesh, that's a codex. What kind of rules is this, more than a chapter approved?
  13. ACK! Can't make it. @DisruptiveConduct will sub for me tonight.
