  1. Francis I would like a word. Several, actually, after the Battle of Pavia...
  2. Or Infinity. Someone pointed out that their draft rules look very similar to Infinity's in terms of typography, design elements, and so on. Hoping they fix that...
  3. They're explicitly using it as a preorder system, not the usual deep KS discounts you might be used to seeing. One reason is so that people have a reason to get it through their FLGS instead of just getting it all cheap through KS... I'm going to see if any local stores are willing to back it at the retail level, and go through them if possible. Otherwise, I'll... uh, either get a full army ($310) or two starters ($140) and start demoing.
  4. After watching the gameplay video they just put out, I am somewhat more interested in Warcaster.
  5. Because people are willing to pay that price for GW models and IP. How much would you pay for a MAD-7D Marauder model the same size and complexity as a Reaver Titan model? How much would you pay for a Reaver Titan figure on the same size as an Iron Wind Metals BattleMech figure? Final point: The new starter set costs less than the Dark Imperium set for 40k. Is it of equivalent value? More? Less?
  6. I've gotten a few games in over at the GW Eastport store, and I understand there are a few players at Geeks & Games in Oregon City.
  7. I feel like they're trying very hard to diversify their income streams, with more success than they have in the past. Monsterpocalypse send to be doing well enough, and it's certainly offering a unique product compared to any other game on the market right now. I'm not sure where they're going with Riot Quest, but it's fun to play... Warmachine 5k feels like it's going to have a much harder hill to climb. I have faith in PP's design abilities to creat a good game, but I don't know if they'll be able to back that up with production and marketing. They've had a lot of hiccups on that front over the last few years. And, as said, it's competing against Infinity, 40k, and Kill Team for that thematic space.
  8. I want to say I'm going to take a wait and see attitude on this, but I'm probably just going to back the Kickstarter on launch and hope it takes off. Love me some stompy robots.
  9. Columbia Art and Drafting. They don't carry Vallejo as far as I know.
  10. Oh, and also try Hobbytowne for Vallejo Model Colors.
  11. Try Geeks & Games in Oregon City. I'm not sure which ranges they have, but I know they carry some, and last I was in it looked pretty full.
  12. Yes, though not as many as used to. Monday nights at Guardian are still a thing, though it's best to arrange a game ahead of time. Rune and Board in Hillsboro has a game night on Wednesdays, and Portland Game Store on Killingsworth has one on Thursdays. All three of those stores still carry a bit of Warmachine product. I believe there's also a regular group that plays on Sundays at Geeks & Games in Oregon City. Event-wise, there are also regular tournaments every month at PGS and/or R&B. Most of the chat is through a Discord server, which most anyone at a game night should be able to invite you to. We are also looking forward to a larger tournament at Burning Cat in April. If you haven't played in ten years, be aware that we're now on the third edition of the game. IIRC, the new rulebook is available for download on the PP website, and new cards can be printed off their card database - or you can use War Room.
  13. I use Cigar Box Battlemats, which are printed fleece. They are quite nice to play on, especially when they're representing grass or whatnot.
