  1. I wanted to start a share for STL files on the interwebs. STL files for those who are unfamiliar, are 3D files which are used to 3D print models. There are several search engines for finding 3D models, but to be honest, you find the best stuff by just aimlessly scrolling through pages. To start, this is a print that reminded me of @Pecksata's army of construct samurai in a desert theme. It is a bit out of his particular army aesthetic, but its a pretty unique model concept that checks the desert and samurai boxes pretty well. https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/ozito-beetle-samurai
  2. Flip testing pewter?! Those are some serious cajones sir What are you giving up to add in 15 Forest Guard?
  3. No doubt the rule book is not inspiring. It’s good at not leaving ambiguity, but lacks flavor. I’d be down to play a game with either of you. Or even be the rules ref while you play each other. Or do a 3 way FFA and encourage you both to gang up on me. Whatever your pleasure. To me, location to play is the biggest consideration. I am not as keen playing at Ordo since it has almost no ventilation. I could host with some lead time (Foster-Powell neighborhood).
  4. Don’t like abstract? You are going to hate my next army project 😇
  5. I am printing my entire next army, so no salt. In fact, I think most people would be happy to not see GW on the table. Its not a game that produces new models and forces players to buy them to keep up in the arms race meta, so there is no "I paid the extra $$ to play this at a high level, and you are just proxying trash" mentalities. Mantic's dwarves are awful, I got a few units of theirs, they have ranking issues. Andrew describes dwarves pretty well. Very elite, you can go between gunline and full combat, with mixed arms being the nice in between. The big downside to the army is that they all advance slow, which is to say you typically dont get the luxury of charging your opponent (they charge you). Their magic phase is boring, period. It is certainly not useless, but there is not a lot of thinking or strategy to it. Print the army! Do it!
  6. hey @Damunky just wanted to check in to see how you are doing? It's rather unfortunate you got your first taste of T9A right before the great lockdown. Did you end up getting your Dark Elves? Have you had a chance to play some sort of practice game? Looking forward to hopefully getting to play a game with you once we are back to gaming.
  7. So what if the grail was simply Fimbriation with a coloured inside.
  8. PROGRESS! It has been some time since I painted anything. I finally got the itch for painting again after a few months hiatus. Working on a unit of grail knights, or maybe they will be realm knights, or aspirants. All the same thing really... As per usual, going with mass production and painting on sprue. I didn't take any pictures of the WIP until this point, so this is most of the way through. For this unit I am using 6 bright colors; purple, white, yellow, blue, red, green. This batch is 12 models, so in traditional equality-tane fashion everything is in duplicates of 2. In addition, there are 4 primary features which can hold a solid color, the barding, robe, cloak, and shield. There are 2 more sprues exactly like the one above but with the remaining 4 colors. So the plan here is to mix together combinations of horses, cloaks, shield, and robes. To keep things as equal as possible, I put together a quick matrix of the colors I would use for each model. I have two different matricies I put together, honestly either of them would work fine. Some of the color combinations will clash, others will not, in all it will probably just look ridiculous. I currently do not have any plans to do anything fancy with the shields (I was going to paint a black grail on all of them) since all my cavalry will look damn near identical. I am somewhat second guessing my plan to not put the tincture stuff on the shields, since every other unit has it. This unit is already going to stand out like a sore thumb (or maybe it wont after I hit it with the wash). Next steps are: 1) paint touch ups on horses 2) glue bases to horses 3) cutting and assembly of riders (minus shields) 3) touch up on riders At that point ill have to make a decision on the shields... Until next time!
  9. Umm, Since the great shutdown I have..... Primed 12 knights Hand painted a Duke for about 3 hours, then made a terrible mistake that will take me another hour to fix >_<. Staying far too busy for my own good.
  10. Oh dang, hell level speed runs with a hammer pally. That’s quite the marathon speed run. the army looks great too 😉
  11. Victim Sign-up list 1) AndrewGeddon (AKA Andrew prime) 2) ValourUnbound (AKA The Gaff) 3) Ben Kerr (AKA Handsome Ben) 4) Pecksata (AKA Black Belt Donnie) 5) Will P. (AKA Couch Goblin)
  12. I am happy to announce that currently, OFCC is still set for a GO for July 25/26 at the Hilton in Vancouver Washington. With that, we will once again be running the Ninth Age tournament, this year being dubbed "The Columbia Clash". Name: The Columbia Clash Days: Sat/Sun 7/25 - 7/26 Rules: The Ninth Age 2.0, latest army rules as of 7/18/2020 Points: 4500 Rounds: 5 Pairings: Swiss style Cost: $50 Painting: 3 Color minimum + basing is REQUIRED (Lets get some paint on those models. Depending on how this social distancing thing pans out I am happy to help batch paint some models and get them TT ready.) The tournament packet is still in the works. As always, I will be trying some new things out to try and make this year unique, and removing some of the more bothersome things from last year. Expect to again see tertiary objectives, but in a new style. Expect some odd special rules. Expect some different Scenarios. Expect some nautical themes. COVID-19 Disclaimer: Obviously nobody at Ordo Fanaticus has clairvoyance to what the future may hold. We have all heard wildly different estimates as to when an event such as OFCC will be permissible. The top brass at Ordo are in contact with the venue (Hilton) and are staying up to date. As information rolls out from the Hilton, we will keep you informed. It is too early to say what the contingency will be if July 25/26 does not work out. See a post from @DisruptiveConduct following this post on the latest information on ticket sales and event updates. My current understanding is we should expect updates by the second week of each month. If there are no updates as of the second week of the month, I highly encourage everyone to PM pictures of their genitalia to @DisruptiveConduct to expedite the process. With that out of the way I will be updating this post as new information regarding the Columbia Clash are developed. I hope to see you all this year. Be smart, be safe, paint models. Get your tickets here!
  13. I build all my own movement trays using an exacto knife, craft ply, and craft sticks. shogun miniatures is who I endorse, depending if you want to go the magnetic or steel base route
  14. Well, to your credit, end of Feb falls on a leap day this year, so your internal calendar is just a bit misaligned.
  15. I could get a game in on Sunday. I’ll probably try to pair you against someone else and just be there for rules help. But if all else fails, I’ll overrun you with a swarm of skinks
  16. I've got extra space. There will be one other (Kenyon Duncan) staying at my place for MtW. Kenyon is flying (I presume), so I was going to give him dibs on the inflatable bed. I think I have a spare inflatable, and I also have a couch. I am 4.3 miles from the venue.
  17. I can usually play on weekdays. I also work downtown so Guardian works for me. If nothing else we could meet up for a drink, or introduce you to the clubhouse if you have not been there yet. welcome to portland!
  18. Hey Ben, I forgot to reply to this ages ago. I’m available if you still plan on coming down. There is a chance I’ll also be available on the weekend if the 29th, but that is up in the air
