    IT'S THAT TIME! I'm here to announce the Rose City Raid 2021. It will be held June 25-26 at the Lucky Labrador, COVID permitting. If we're required to change venue to be outdoors, then we'll be holding it at the Madrona Hill Vineyard in Sherwood, OR. Hope to see you there!
    Event Info Here!

    I noticed that this hasn't been posted here yet. Thanks to the efforts of Joe at Fate and Fury Games, BSI is back up and running. He acquired the company and is carrying on Luke Mundy's legacy.

    It is a Dwarf Thane with a shield oddly attached to it. The shield hand has been cut and reattached and the wings on the helm are cut off.

    Exactly. Literally everyone is waiting on their complete faction ruleset to go with 9th/points changes and GW is focusing their time and energy on manipulating people into buying new terrain kits with new rules that will likely disrupt the balance again and then be nerfed after the kits are sold.
    Any other game company would finish the codexes as soon as possible instead of dragging them out for year to sell us plastic walls. Or the transition would have been a lot smoother if they made points changes by faction as codexes armies shifted from 8th PA to 9th.
    But having worked in marketing to put myself through college I know the biggest trend in advertising lately is triggering people’s fomo anxiety. All the release uncertainty and faction unbalancing is an intentional play to manipulate people into buying more plastic in the meantime while they have to wait for their current faction update.
    When the game is already this expensive and their profits already soaring, not to mention all the economic hardship people are experiencing right now, its a pretty telling message about how GW really views their players.

    Maybe the “black shirt” managers of GW’s own retail stores were sick of having to build (and repair) their shop’s in house terrain?

    I would never play with these rules, but I certainly don't disparage anyone for wanting to. Just seems like a weird release, not really sure who this is for? Was anyone telling GW that they wanted to lug around a bunch of terrain in addition to their army?

    My cynical side must be up because this just screams money grab to me. If you need more [big bad swear word] to deal with, then I guess it is okay...but seems 40K is pretty heavy on the rules thing already.

    Well, it's been a while! Between OFCC being canceled and the release of 40K 9th Ed, I pretty much let this army flounder. I've recently recaptured the spark though and am slowing plugging away of the Sylvan Elves. Don't worry, evil snail dwarves will be back on the menu soon!
    Recently magnetized the entire army (that is, until I re-wrote my list and added in 15 Forest Guard which need to get done). Always satisfying to do the flip test, especially with metal models.


    Blade Dancer BSB made out of extra sorceress (?) model!

    ...and currently working on putting together my Forest Prince (Princess, rather) and a Dragon. Love this model, but man is it a pain to work with.

    More progress coming soon. Give a hoot, don't pollute!

    Cool thanks. I think I'll wait for N4 and everything to clear up, I'm in the process of a move and don't have much time to play electronically. I'll be up there in a couple months though, so will rejoin game nights when they start up again.

    Well howdy!
    The clubhouse was shut for most of the spring and early summer, what with the 'vid and all. It has recently reopened for some distanced, limited capacity game nights.  I haven't made it down to play just yet, but I did stop in to say hi to some of the Senators and scope things out this last week.  Definitely feeling the itch to play again.  Household restrictions make it tough.
    I perused the C1 rules, and set them down and said "looks like I'll like N4".  So I'm psyched for next week(?)when the info starts dropping.  Glad to see you make your way back!  See you in the fall!

    I miss you guys, but with a recovering cancer patient in my house, I'm taking no risks. It sucks, and I desperately want to game with everyone. I'll see you once we're vaccinated.

    Greetings Ordos
     
    As you may know, Multnomah County has entered phase 1 for reopening.  We are going to start hosting Game Nights at WoW again, starting on June 23rd.
     
    There are a variety of concerns for reopening while still trying to limit the spread of coronavirus, so I want to go over what we will be doing, and what we will expect our members to do.  We want to make the clubhouse available and safe for all our members, to the best of our ability.  As always, we trust you to use your best judgment as to whether or not to attend, based on your own risk levels.  If you or a family member have been experience any symptoms, Please Stay at Home for the night.
     
    For the next 3 months we will be waiving game night dues for Warlord Champions, as a thank you for your support while we have been closed.  We will be adding a message board at the entry to WoW, listing the Game Night Czar for the day. There will be hand sanitizer at the door, as well as masks and gloves for members who haven't brought their own. Before opening, the Game Night Czar will clean and sanitize all high touch surfaces, and note that they have done so. The GNC will also open windows and get fans running in every room, to maximize air flow. Face coverings will be required to be worn while in attendance,  particularly since our space and activities do not allow for adequate spacing for social distancing. Doors will need to be kept open, to increase airflow. We will be giving priority for gaming space to Champions as well as to members who post their plans in the weekly Game Night threads We may have to limit attendance, and will request that if you're planning to spectate or hobby, be aware we may not have space.  
    We are also going to look at expanding the nights that we host game nights, more details will be coming soon.
     
    Feel free to message me with any questions or concerns,
     
    Stay Safe, Ordo

    As I've been saying for years, every time GW introduces a new product -- be it as major as a new edition or as minor as a redesigned paint brush cup -- the reactions are eerily predictable: 
    33% of the fan base will absolutely hate the new thing and declare the game RUINED FOREVER!!! 33% of the fan base will absolutely love the new thing and declare the game PERFECTED AT LAST!!! 34% of the fan base will say MEH. Realizing its an equal mix of good and bad like always, and carry on playing like always... and desperately wish the above two groups would shut up.

    I predict that the new edition will fix a lot of the imbalances of the current, the first half dozen new codices will be nicely balanced, and although the Internet hive-mind will figure out a couple quirks and niche exploits, things will be great... for two years.
    Then GW will start releasing codices that break many of the core assumptions written into the core rules and become far to powerful; GW will release several supplements that are poorly tested and rushed; the Internet hive-mind will figure out unintended combinations that totally skew the game... and three years after that we’ll get 10th Edition.
