Re: 9th edition is on the way!

*shrug* I guess playing a bunch of WarCry lately has made me realize I vastly prefer a quick-to-play, quick-to-set-up game and finding the fun in the occasional uneven matchup to chasing the brass ring of perfect balance. :P Diff'rent strokes and all that! Crusade might not be for you, and matched p...

Re: 9th edition is on the way!

Guess I'm getting a box or two of plagubearers then. :lol: With the plague company rules, I can basically spend a CP to automatically summon 8PL worth of daemons risk-free, so... (This is how they get ya!)

Re: 9th edition is on the way!

Some ponderings, not having really had a chance to look through what we have of the Crusade rules. Probably most answers boil down to "just wait for the rulebook, Dave" but a guy's gotta obsess over list building, right? Would it be that the full 50PL roster wouldn't necessarily need to follow a for...

Hmm, looks like there’s a whole separate rules pack for Crusade - $35 US, so it’ll be slim, but maybe that’ll be where the narratives for each faction are?
That's a notebook, I don't think it will have any rules.
Oh, it's just like blank datasheets? Bah! Bah, I say!

Also looks like $199 US for the Indomitus box. I like the idea of space marine drop fortifications, very Dawn of War, but the missile thing look...

That was fast. I had that thing for a year and never touched it. :D

Nice work. You really have mastered those contrast paints.
Thanks! I actually used very little contrast on this guy! Just the fleshy bits basically, because Contrast does that well.

Re: What did you do today.

Here's my bloat drone done: https://i.imgur.com/Q3dNcdvl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/XBNwS7Rl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/dHgXBA6l.jpg Turned out pretty good! A lot of fun to paint, too - always fun to bust out my rudimentary chipping and rust effect skills. Next is some (more) poxwalkers, which should at l...

Re: 9th edition is on the way!

I was pleased to find expanding to 50PL won't be particularly onerous for my Dusk Raiders, and it'll still be a pleasantly compact force, so I probably won't be too violently opposed to games of that size. I wonder if GW will be selling just the kill-team-sized battle boards... Mixing and matching m...

Re: 9th edition is on the way!

Pre-order confirmed for July 11, so launch on the 25th. That's pretty girigiri for (if*) games day is on the 26th, heh.

*I forgot to ask Kondo-san when the next games day was. Did anyone confirm?
