  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Columbia Art and Drafting. They don't carry Vallejo as far as I know.
  6. Oh, and also try Hobbytowne for Vallejo Model Colors.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I use Cigar Box Battlemats, which are printed fleece. They are quite nice to play on, especially when they're representing grass or whatnot.
  10. I saw this skirmish game at Guardian Games and it piqued my interest. Has anyone picked it up and played it?
  11. Did anyone follow up on this? I can grab you one if not.
  12. Having played quite a lot of DBA, I heartily recommend it as an intro to ancients wargaming. Despite playing with 12 stands to a side on a 2' square board, it manages to neatly capture the feel of a big battle with minimal rules. That said, it does take a bit of getting used to; the author, Phil Barker, always favors succinctness over clarity when writing rules...
  13. Might want to check with Rune & Board in Hillsboro, too. Their website says Tuesdays for 40k.
  14. I do, but it's assembled and primed silver. If you're interested, I'm happy to part with it.
