  1. I've been Xbox'ing mostly, haven't been motivated to get off the couch for PC gaming. 🤪 Game pass games have been awesome. Things like Deep Rock Galactic and others have been fun. However, haven't really done much multiplayer lately. Been blasting through as many free game pass games that I can. Desperados 3 is my current work through.
  2. I have those new on sprue still. Didn't use them when I built my Ghost ark.
  3. Thanks, I wanted to support my local game shop, so I ordered from them.
  4. Placed my order. Ordered an old Destroyer squadron box (need to finish my 12 destroyers, might not field em, but I own them)! I'll probably be getting rid of the extra destroyer in there. Also ordered the Necron Codex and Necron datacards.
  5. Goin' gaming in Troutdale, OR. has 2 copies of Indomitus and some Recruit and Elite starter sets. Just pointing out in case anyone is looking and wants to support a local shop.
  6. Thanks for the info so far. Sounds like I can get the rule book free to start at least browsing. And then as far as rules for my army just grab the New codex and I should be good. I don't have any forge world so I don't know that I need the indexes. Unless any other old models are only in the index? I'm going to place an order for the codex at least.
  7. With Covid and all, i haven't taken any time to get caught up with 40k. In fact, I skipped Indomitus and all that (local shop has Indomitus, but have most of those models just not the new ones). Mainly just looking to get caught up with essentials. Below are the things I think I need. Latest rules? Link to the current rulebook? Is there one, or is it all index crap again? There's a new Codex for Necrons or is it Indexes too? Any must haves of the new models, or just 'meh' so far? Not a huge fan of the new design, but wondering about power and high end models of the new kits.
  8. EPIC, and that beginner mission is probably the BEST mission ever made! Easy, in depth, a great story, and SUPER flexible for DM's! (as long as no other player has run it yet).
  9. I helped a friend with a home theater (years ago). Sound wise, he just had your typical 4 speaker surround sound (with sub woofer) as the room was standard sized. Then he had 2 longer couches. The first was on the normal floor, the 2nd was elevated on a platform he had built to raise the room. Basically he did stadium seating to allow seeing over people. It seated 6 easily, 8 if you had to, and with extra chairs on the side, could do up to 12. As an alternative to stadium seating, you can raise the eye elevation of the screen too. Our home TV sits atop the fireplace about 4ft up. If we m

  11. You might not be doing it right...🤣 '' On a side note, I agree. I was able to roller blade/roller skate just fine. Skateboard, NOPE...
  12. I second D&D 5th ed, and DND Beyond subscription is plain AWESOME (if 1 person bought the books, because you can digitally share it). D&D 5e is super easy to learn (compared to pathfinder) Digital sites like DND Beyond take away all the book reading to building characters. Being able to search everything, and have your choices reflected, and dice rolling with modifiers automatic, is just powerful. Especially for newer players. I own 5 books on DND beyond, and pay the master $6/mo subscription. I run a campaign for my sons friends, as well as participate in another that use
  13. Same! Gaslands is a blast! Especially that last 4 man game we played. So much carnage. No winners, just losers...everywhere! 😄
  14. Napster was sued and shutdown. They never posted the files and we're decentralized too, however the lynch pin was they hosted the files. Battlescribe hosts the files, I would imagine precedent applies here. The article I read, eluded to GW trying to release its own subscription model app and taking away competition. However, good to hear not true?
  15. Was reading an article the battle scribe got a cease and desist from Games workshop. Much as it's within their territory there's nothing as good or as quick to get a digital army building tool. So for the time being the older stuff is being ignored but no ninth edition to compete with their new app which I hear sucks. Thoughts?
  16. Interesting, thanks for sharing. I skipped around in the video, but is his math off? $40 to $175 is a 435% increase...not 138%?
  17. Not that it's right, but when was the last time Marines were the powerhouse? Never really hit that stride. So this will be their time to shine like many factions get. Is it over the top? Maybe, time will tell. But every time we've seen power shifts, each following codex usually does a decent job of adjusting power creep up too. Long story short, totally agree. But I don't play 40k as a competitive win at all costs game. Thus, the games I do play will be great regardless of that power creep.
  18. @Burk, thanks for the thought, I'll have to pass this round too.
  19. I'm surprised at myself not buying the Necron half, just not sold I need more...
  20. Sounds like we need to run some kind of Faux'FCC league at the clubhouse. 🤣
  21. Making sure you're in Macro mode makes a huge difference. Then lighting and such. I liked Dan's portable studio which was a white background with ambient light.
  22. Yeah, i'm considering splitting and taking a Necron side of that box. Don't really need more warriors and scarabs though. Thinking about it...
  23. Did we get any hint of a 9th ed release date or pre-orders yet? Rumor said July (ish), but wasn't sure if something solidified yet?
