General Discussion / Re: A Missed Opportunity
« on: May 16, 2017, 12:14:18 PM »
I do love me some 40K, and I usually turn a blind eye to GW's usual antics- they are out to make money off us players. I'm down with that and capitalism...

...but this does seem like a potential screw over to the fan base. Only time will tell for real.

They would LOVE for all marine players to buy a new army, but if they voided the entire old range of armies at the launch of 8th I think that would be the final thing that pisses players off.

BUT if all new marine and chaos releases are true sized then over time if you play marines or chaos you are going to get tired of having miss matched marines and buying new stuff.

GW is NOT introducing new marine models, they are changing the miniature scale of the game.

Not sure how I feel about this as a part time marine player and full time chaos player.

Xenos seem safe...

...for now.

General Discussion / 40K 8th Edition Holding Pattern
« on: May 09, 2017, 09:49:49 AM »
So 8th is around the corner, literally like what, a month away?

Personally I'm in kind of a holding pattern with 40K right now.

Finishing up the last of my 100 'zerker models, not buying any new kits until we see what happens for the 8th release, plan to pick up the new starter set or at least pre-order it.

Working on my 40K terrain.

Playing games of Shadow War.

Regular 40K games have kind of been on hold. 7th was fun, but I think we are all ready for 8th.



What are you working on or playing 40K right now till the new edition drops?

So as mentioned the FAQ is up, which gives us a few more ideas but no real clarifications.

I'm not surprised that all codes will be null and void- how were they GW going to make those work with a new rule set, but I also feel it's a jerk move. Especially if you just bought stuff. Make all the rules and model related data for FREE would help.

I'm also interested in these 3 ways to play- sounds AOS like to me.

Still not much of an FAQ.

I really wanted a hint on the new starter set.

General Discussion / Re: Custom Dice Recommendations
« on: April 04, 2017, 04:20:47 PM »
I find that even with custom dice it helps to have two sets of colors. Maybe a full set of one color and a half set of another to help speed up with rolling.

With my Eldar I have red and black dice- when I roll for my vypers I use black dice for the shuriken cannons and red dice for the star cannons- helps to speed up the rolling.

One set of colors for regular attacks, the other for power weapons? Once for storm bolters, and the other for assault cannons- makes different weapons in the same unit a bit quicker to handle.

Discussion: 40K Rumors / Warhammer 40K 8th Edition Starter Set
« on: February 22, 2017, 02:00:43 PM »
With 8th edition around the corner (soon), I'm wondering what the next 40K starter set will be.

I rather enjoy them as both a quick way to play 40K in a pre-packaged setup- kind of like a board game, without the board, and as a way to see the evolution of the hobby over time.

What do you guys think the next starter set will include?

What would you like it to include?

Safe bet it will be Space Marines on one side- as it should be, but what about the "bad guy" side?

I'm also interested to see what the next jump will be in terms of quality of models and where GW currently is with their mold tech- look at the awesome fits in AOS.

Will we see multiple starter sets?

Discussion: Space Marines / Re: Share your favorite Space marine list!
« on: February 22, 2017, 10:25:34 AM »
Space Marine Captain/Champion
3 HB Razorbacks w/ Combat Squads
1 Dread
5 TH/SS Terminators
5 LC Terminators
Land Raider
10-20 Assault Marines

love the list, but more and more I'm REALLY leaning towards getting a pod for the dread.

Discussion: Fortifications / Re: A lack of fortifications on the table
« on: February 21, 2017, 10:44:56 AM »
Locally I don't see them anymore. If I do, they are just counted as tabletop terrain- part of the table.

With my Grey Knights a defense line used to be an auto-include, not any more.

I think partially b/c the novelty has worn off, partly b/c the advantage you might have gotten by the state of the game when GW introduced them was something new, but has now settled down or points better spent. Partially also b/c many tournaments have rules on what you can bring with fortifications.

Never saw a fortress of redemption on the table...

General Discussion / Best Vehicle In 40K?
« on: February 21, 2017, 10:41:51 AM »
Two part question:

1- What is the best vehicle in 40K right now taking into account points, numbers that you can field, and abilities?

2- What is the best underutilized vehicle? What should we be seeing more on the table, but just don't for some reason?

My thoughts?

1- Razorback. Transport, cheap, and some firepower. East to spam and put out a good amount of dice.
2- Sentinels

Your Thoughts?

I'd second cultists, and then perhaps a lord on a juggernaut.

Rhinos also, add as time permits as the fit into any CSM army and are 100% worth the points.

As for hobby stuff, consider asking the question about how you want to base your guys as its a great way to compliment the mini and highlight and level of painting on a mini. Could be basic gravel, flocks and sand, or perhaps a more Khornate theme?

Love it.

Bonus points for the Tyranid spires.

Would love to fight alongside it with my own chaos!

Mr. "Claws".

Sometimes a hive tyrant, other times a tervigon depending on what the hive mind needs.

No shooty, just crushing claws everywhere!

General Discussion / Re: Magnus - Can he be killed?
« on: February 08, 2017, 09:00:22 AM »
Have yet to face Magnus, but it has been interesting watching some of the YouTube stuff and blog battle reports.

Sounds like you did the right thing and focused on the rest.

Question I keep on asking is just how many primarchs and perhaps named daemon princes will GW be releasing?

Is this just a one off thing that will blend out wit the rules, or something more?

Exciting times for sure!

Some might consider it heresy, but Mantic Games zombies mixed in make some interesting tech cultists to bulk out your horde and add some different poses. Here are a few from a friends collection.

Amazing job so far getting that many.

I'd love to face off against your army- would be an amazing last stand battle!

Perhaps they are planning to re-bundle the kit with another one for different options?

8th?
