    you should mail that to GW, if they are smart they take it seriously and realize you are only one of many reacting like this.

  • Tennis courts – for when the game designers consider the ‘tabletop’ part of tabletop war gaming to really be more of an abstract concept or a general motivational goal rather than an actual part of the gaming experience… :-)

  • onlyonepinman posted on the forum topic What are you painting now? in the group Avatar Hobby & Painting Town Square:   1 minute ago · View

    @saskapk, what paints do you use? I write occasional blog posts for painting various things. I’ve done 2 flesh schemes to date, black/african skin and ruddy skin and I’m fairly sure I could cobble together a caucasian skin tutorial in next to no time. But I use Citadel paints almost exclusively so you might have [...]

  • This looks very tactical and with great depth to it (apologies for the truly awful pun). I will definitely check this (don’t make any ‘it’s on my sonar’ joke’s- your better than that) as part of my first tentative forays into historical war gaming. If anyone wants to know who is to blame for my [...]

    Thank you for all your kind replies gentlemen! @gilgamesh That’s myBolt Action Ostfront mix, all sorts of sand and gravel coloured in with some left over Mig pigments. Mainly Dark Mud and Russian Earth. I think the helmet could have been sculpted a little bigger or all in all a little more helmet like but I’m [...]

    Well true

  • I’ve been spending the weekend reading and watching AoS info as if it was some sort of slow motion train wreck. My schadenfreude love of GW has been going overdrive. On consideration I think vagrantwhisper is correct about the removal of points. If GW had included points for everything then two things would have happened [...]

    In the current AoS parlance, ‘an extra attack’ usually means an extra attack for each weapon of whatever type in a unit, so an extra attack for each melee or ranged weapon a unit has, or an extra attack for each ‘sword of pointy stabbing’ or whatever the weapon happens to be called. So yes, [...]

  • I’ve ordered one and am looking forward to compare it to the Rubicon Hanomag.
    The seated grenadiers are nice but they will look like Hobbits compared to the proper grenadiers on foot so I probably won’t use them.
    The Panzergrenadier box seems excellent value and I will seriously consider a purchase.

    Looks nice dude – I couldn’t get my White Dwarf :( All sold out!

    They are online, but what about in store?

  • Happy Birthday Beasts of War! Thinking it may come down to the base game for sigmar….then a scenario book/release…..but believe they are mentioning tournament rules later (from Forge World open day). But the first releases will be a “lets show you the world type thing” Tournament rules could then use units/points/wounds, etc. to make “balanced [...]

  • vetruviangeek posted on the forum topic Possible AoS balance in the group AvatarFantasy Gamer Town Square:   25 minutes ago · View

    Some interesting ideas on this thread for trying to get a little balance into AoS. Personally, I agree with the various commenters who have suggested that more rules and structure is to come for the game in the future. The four pages of rules in the box set just has ‘quick start rules’ written all [...]

  • So much yes.

    AoS smells like a pay to win system.

    Itnis much easier to remove an army selection system from a game, to build one that works.

    Realising that

    I wanted to paint today I finished another two Guardsmen:

    One officer

    And one for an assault engeneer squad I’ve started a while ago

    That’s the week end before my 40th birthday, could be a nice little boys week end away. I’ll have to see what else we’ve got planned but I’m definitely interested.
