  1. Toy Story 4: Overall, I liked it. Unfortunately, I have been watching China, IL (it's a TV series I like), which has an episode which likens toy story to being about slavery - so I had that in my mind while watching the film, which did kinda ruined it. Should have probably watched the episode and the film further apart, but it really wasn't planned. Regarding Toy Story 4, There's sort of a dip towards the middle where they don't have very frequent jokes, or sillyness, or action, just slow plot development. I got the feeling that some of the children in the audience also came to this conclusion. My suspicion is that the film was designed with both an adult and a child target audience, hence why they spent time developing a more meaningful plot into a kids film. I think their execution of the plot may have been a bit too complex for children, so they kinda failed on that point. Additionally, I may have missed Toy Story 3. Not really sure, but good excuse to re-watch the series again, anyway.
  2. Been thinking about it, Harry Potter is basically a story about the adventures of the top 1% that secretly controls the world...
  3. Ever seen starship troopers? Bug tactics tend to rely on lots of models dying to shooting before they make melee. 100+ models is pretty normal. Might even be low model count. Downside for tournaments is mainly having more models to paint and more to transport. Tyranids aren't as bad as DE, but they are still one of the hardest to transport model lines. Good luck to your player.
  4. Is there any difference between close minded and narrow minded? Finally noticed that I've been using them interchangeablely.....but I'm not certain they mean the same thing.
  5. Yeah, one of the big faults with 8e's PL system is that GW doesn't adjust them when they reduce/increase the points of a unit.
  6. The Orville (Season 1) 3/5 It's like a halfway point between Star Trek Next Generation and Futurama, except both of those shows are much better. On the other hand, there's sort of a void that it fills with regards to space shows. On the science end, this show doesn't use any: It just travels from sci-fi trope to sci-fi trope (which may have science basis, but I get the feeling watching it that the show is based on the tropes, not the science). On the humor end, it has jokes, but they are few and far between. The show is...good enough, I guess, yeah, that's a good way to describe it. It's good enough. I'd much rather have another Futurama or another STNG, or both, but this show is good enough for the time being.
  7. Looks legal. Probably ofcc friendly. Though if really looking for some OFCC fun, I recommend the Onager Gauntlet on the Coldstar. It's not very effective, but turn 1 charges with TAU are definitely amusing. If you go that route, might want to make the other battlesuit into your warlord, just because the coldstar would likely be disposable at that point...
  8. Probably already mentioned elsewhere, but with all the pinned topics, I didn't see it. GW released an "Epub" version of the WD which features the current assassin rules, in case you missed them. https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/White-Dwarf-March-epub-2019
  9. Totally agree. Medusa, though, as stated by others, doesn't fit the other things stated. Griffon does. And they do look pretty similar. Anyway, was just a thought.
  10. Current list is illegal. TAU have a 0-1 cap on any "commander" models per detachment. This doesn't work. They'd need to be in different detachments. It's kinda a silly limitation, but the profile difference between TAU commanders and basic suits is so great that you'd never field non-commanders if it were an option. The 0-1 commander cap is kinda a lazy solution, but it does encourage list diversity.
  11. Any chance you mean that it's a Griffon? That one was a plastic/metal kit pre-2000s.
