Re: February Nagoya Games Day: 26 Feb 2023 E-able Higashi Betsuin

I'll be there, although I have given zero thought to what I actually want to play. :lol: (Heck, I'd cheerfully play another round of Darkest Dungeon if anyone's up for it!) Oops, we can't call it "DnD for sort, can we..... "Dark n' Dunge"? I'd be up for another round. Just starting to get the hang ...

I may see if Kondo-san wants to play some Titanicus or Epic.

Re: January Nagoya Games Day: 29/1/2023 e-able Higashi Betsuin

Thanks to jus, grantholomew, and konrad for a fun, if extremely in-characterfully brutal run of Darkest Dungeon! My house rules turned out to be harsher than I expected - I was thrown by the difference in difficulty between solo play and group play. For reference, the RAW are: *No stress for someone...

Re: What did you do today.

@Matt as for eyes, I think those guys look fine as is! Grizzled vets with eyes shadowed by their helmets and all that. (I almost never paint eyes myself, or at most just fill in the whole eye with white. If blank white eyes are good enough for old Jes Goodwin concept art, they're good enough for me!...

Re: What did you do today.

euwwww..... That contrast paint does give everything a meaty sheen, doesn't it? A lot of that is the semi-satin sealer I use, but yeah. Speaking of, here's the "Shuffling Horror," the go-to eldritch horror for when you need tentacles with your gribbly body horror: https://i.imgur.com/lHkODDH.jpg I'...

Re: What did you do today.

Awesome stuff! (And I love how in my head now hearing the phrase "weakness of the flesh" automatically triggers the Mechanicus opening scene .) Things have been getting a bit... fleshy on my painting table as my queue moves into the eldritch body horror of the Darkest Dungeon itself: https://i.imgur...

Re: Too much of a good thing?

I've (somehow!) managed in the past year or two to train myself not to really think about releases for games I don't play, beyond "holy wow, that Necromunda model looks neat - I hope the people who play it enjoy it!" And I don't really mind having lots of cool minis to look at weekly, probably since...

Unfortunately no - we sort of missed the window to organize it last autumn. :oops: Hoping to revivify it for 2024 though!

Re: Hopes for 10th Edition

I agree with what Prim says about rerolls - there's enough dice rolled in 40K (too many, really) that adding on rerolls can just a) slow the game to a crawl, and b) allow the player to mitigate a lot of the randomness that makes dice games fundamentally dice games. In AT, for example, rerolls are ve...
