  1. PM sent! Hmm, downside to not getting the Battle Sisters Squad, I guess.
  2. Anyone know which kit this (the head with the helmet on and the visor raised) is in? I've got a conversion idea I want to use it for. Or, anyone got a spare one laying about?
  3. But... but what am I going to do with all this Mead and brownies I've got set aside to use for bribes sportsmanship incentives for my opponents? Well, at least I have a new inflatable kiddie pool.... . .. ... .... ..... ...... ....... ......... .......... ........... waitaminute A + B +C = .......... Nevermind, I'm good.
  4. OOOOH! Paint a curvy capital "Y" on the forehead of the brown dog so he looks like Lockjaw!
  5. Finally opened the Blackstone Fortress I won at Fluger's Fundraiser last year. Kids put all the 'Bad Guys' together Saturday,we primed and painted 'em all on Sunday. Got the 'Hero' models primed on Sunday and painted Monday. Played the first Combat round with an eight year old and an almost 11 year old yesterday, only took several hours while paging through the reference books.
  6. Any use of the Moment of Grace Stratagem? Being able to add 1, 2, or 3 to a hit, wound or save roll AFTER the dice roll seems pretty powerful for 1 CP. I'm intending to use that and the Ebon Chalice "Discard a Miracle Dice and the other is a '6' " ability to keep my vehicles alive with the 6++ save against a couple of nasty shots. Should get the chance at Mugu on Saturday.
  7. How do you find you're using Miracle Dice in the first couple of turns? As guaranteed Advance rolls for greater distance in order to get Celestine in position for a first turn charge? Using low numbers for guaranteed wound rolls from the Exorcist? Etcetera, Ad nauseam... Inquiring minds want to know.
  8. I'm STILL trying to figure out a way to get Immolator Spam to work. Trying to re-live the Witch Hunters glory days... However 2 Exorcists, 2 Repressors and 4 Immolators across 2 Battalions doesn't really reach the threat saturation/target priority confusion level the historical list had at 11 Immolators. So back to the drawing board, I guess.
  9. I think THIS year I might get Team Ad Hoc ]I[: The Ad Hoc-ening a Team Banner done 10 minutes before the event with a sharpie on a white t-shirt. Didn't do it this year because I couldn't scrounge a portable enough hat rack to hang it from...
  10. I got mine, now scouring locations for rules leaks to see if I can get a list to play with Thanksgiving weekend somewhere.
  11. Maybe the hover-podium counts as a jetbike. Anyone else have the Schoolhouse Rock song about pronouns start to play in their head when they saw the steps up in the back view?
  12. I have it still on the sprues, but live just north of Seattle. I'm also willing to trade since I've got my kids into building and painting Primaris Marines if you have those, or for plastic Sisters if you're getting that box set.
  13. Still haven't found the toolkit in the various places I have gaming stuff around BUT... I've reconstituted 90% of the tools from Past Me getting a back-up razor saw or a second set of forceps... Thanks, Past Me. Still need to get a pin vice drill, greenstuff and glue, though.
  14. 2-ish months later, is that a record? Anyway, I was all set to sit down and start converting yet another model when I couldn't find my toolkit. It's a 5" x 9" white plastic case with a big "Ordo Fanaticus" round sticker on it. It holds two pin vices with drills, a short tube of green stuff, plastic and super glue, green handled sprue cutters and pliers, a metal ruler and other odds and ends. Anyone pick it up after I had to bail early to catch a flight on Sunday, two months ago?
  15. I'll grab a table with easy line of sight to the staff table at the center of the ballroom. Look for the fat guy in the I (Godzilla) Tokyo T-shirt. That'll be me. Do you still need a tray to carry your army from table to table? Found a bamboo box which should hold an entire Custodes army.
  16. Hey... you got your pugnacity on my bribes! Or I got baked goods & Mead on your pusillanimousness. How'bout your and my teams Fight? @evil_bryan , @Frowbakk 's Team Ad Hoc ][: Ad Hoc~der challenges @Xavier319 's Team Diversity to fill up both of our challenge schedules.
  17. Pretty good so far. I'm planning on arriving Friday morning, hopefully in time for the start of the ITC thing I paid for, if I'm not finishing painting my army. I'll be the guy in the black Dr. Doom T-shirt for those of you who haven't met me/need a reminder.
  18. Team Ad Hoc ][: Ad Hoc~der loudly proclaims that no team is brave enough to challenge us for our last available challenge. Who among you will step up to the challenge? (Added incentive: I bribe the opposing team with Mead and baked goods) EDIT: I didn't mean bribe, I meant payola. EDIT 2: No, pardon me, my language was imprecise... instead of payola I meant largesse. EDIT 3: Hey, are there any Canadian teams to challenge? Maybe we can get some emolument action happening. EDIT 4: Well, technically it's not graft because all of the items being proffered are homemade and therefore don't have a readily assigned monetary value... EDIT 5: Boy, that Ethics in the Corporate Workplace seminar was unexpectedly useful, wasn't it?
  19. OK, so I signed up for the Friday event, but the outlet mall store I have to shop at on the way down (or else I won't have any shorts to wear) opens at 10. I still want to play during the day, so can I drop in on Games 2 & 3 of the Friday morning round and Game 1 of the evening (4:30) round? (since I'll be playing my OFCC list and not expecting to win any of my games anyway) Assuming I won't have to spend the time furiously finishing painting, despite the four uninterrupted nights leading up to OFCC, that is.
  20.

  21. Team Ad Hoc ][ Challenges: Goin' Xenos @Dark Trainer Silence in the Warp @peter.cosgrove and... Trigger Happy Panda, since no one has challenged them yet, I think... @splinx
  22. So, should I bring some for @evil_bryan? I can get more since the Root Beer Store is just down the road from me.
