    can get the big one for the same money as the elegoo

     

    The Mighty and the Saturn are very similar! Same price point now. Saturn doesnt have wifi though:( So I have to walk to my Garage (which I have to anyways) to load up and start a print. Prints look great on the Mighty!

    Core rules are free. The $5 is for the list creator, access to all 8th ed rules, etc. I have not paid the $5 and have access to the core rules portion. They look to be the same as the free rules that was posted to the Warhammer community page earlier this month. 

    I could not access any of the material on the "References" tab on the bottom left until I paid the $5 fee. There is no army builder yet. The search function lists searching rules, but only searches datasheets. Not worth the $5 yet.

  3. After the, "no state will work" problem this morning I finally was able to give GW $5 bucks to see what the app had other than a PDF version of the rules. The parts I see are nice enough, but not $5 per month when Wahapedia.ru is free. I will wait to see how the app evolves. I hope the rules become part of the app, not just a PDF.

  4. Geeks and games did 15 percent off and had plenty of box sets at 130pm today. 

    I read that the new chapter approved rule book has the rules in it, so maybe no big expensive book needed.

    Plus the app has rules and codexes. We will see how well that works. Not going to hold my breath but I sure wish GW hits the app out of the park. 

  5. Since the 9E objective markers are officially 7.5" (7.57" technically), I wonder if Ordo or OFCC will make some sweet custom neoprene objective marker mats? I have a set to support Team USA 40k and have enjoyed using them.

    Slightly off topic, but for the love of Zod, why don’t people ever edit out the “Waiting to Start” nonsense from uploads of live stream reruns?

    This video takes ELEVEN MINUTES to get to the actual content!?

    Twitch makes it easy to push a button to do reruns. Not sure they care to delete the extra time as it would just cost time/money. Sure wish Twitch could automatically remove the pause screen for reruns!

    I tried out Streamlabs which seems to be the streaming platform of choice for Twitch and others. You can have a waiting to start screen/pause/whatever while you connect to the streaming platform but are still getting things ready in the other window. My understanding of the workflow is you start your Twitch stream via Streamlabs which then shows the waiting to start screen(or anything you want to show), start your video chat program which involves sometimes restarting connections and making sure mikes work etc, load up your other content you want to show on the stream, arrange all the windows in streamlabs, then press start stream. Some content creators have a different workflow, but with all the pictures and stuff GW's stream shows it sounds like they have a 3rd person doing the stream and they just connect via a video chat like Zoom.

  7. I like that melee is now defined at 1" horizontally and 5" vertically. I really like the bullet points in the rulebook. Everything so far is thorough, defined well, and clear enough to me. I wonder if the chapter approved points are going to "leak" tonight/tomorrow so that people can play over Treason Day Independence Day.

    Whoa. This is huge. A tactic that I’d been using for several editions with my Deathwing and planned to use with my Custodes was to plop one guy with a storm shield into my units for every five men. Use the storm shield to “tank” the occasional high AP hit and then let one of the others take the small arms fire.

    Imperial Guard Infantry Squad with a lascannon shoots the squad, shield tanks it with 3++ Save. The eight guys with lasguns shoot, take it all on the 2+ Save of a regular trooper.

    Now, not only must all shots from the one attacking unit be taken on that first man, he must continue to try to tank shots for the rest of the Shooting phase!

     

    Yeah that is huge for Deathwatch vet squads. Well any squad with storm shields really.

    With the announcement of 9th around the corner, and redevelopment of old gaming relationships I'm determined to get back into the Warhammer Community.

    I'm glad to be back and I look forward to seeing people on the tabletop again. 

     

     

    Awesome! I started again last year and Ordo has been amazing helping me back in. Lots of great people here. Look forwards to playing you soon!

    Oh, this all reminds me! There's a new game due out soon from the author of Gaslands, called A Billion SunsThe game was originally supposed to release in August, no word yet on whether or not it's been delayed due to 2020 being, well, 2020.

    Hey,  here's a crazy idea Ish: Why don't you look $#!+ up before your post! -Me

    Shaddup. Mom never loved you anyway. -Me to Me

    So it turns out that the game has been delayed until 2021. But they have extended the playtest period.

     

    Seems cool. I downloaded the rules and will check them out tonight. My flight bases shipped, so maybe I will have my stands by this weekend.

    You’d think I know how.....

     

     

    YES!! Now that is a collection! You have so many ships. No idea what they all are, but they look fun. Can't wait to get my flight stands so I can start playing games. 

  12. Yeah Thingiverse is a black hole trying to find models. I have downloaded a plethora of 40k stuff and some BFG files that I can share. The STL files are there, you just have to keep looking, and looking, and looking...

    A quick treasure trove find:

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4370097


    I think I want to use the latest rules like you linked. I found a few tournaments that run BFG games (like Adepticon) and they use the latest rules. Are the latest rules what everyone uses?
