    I am having a hard time imagining why that would be different from just taking another block.
    If you explain it to me maybe we will go to a higher point total core after week 4.

    Because I would like to add a special character. I can juggle some points around and see what I can come up with instead of begging for moar points.

    Pollo, when are you down for a game?

    Dumbass question (especially as I played in the first league)
    How do I load one of the pre-done maps?
    Load game? Which folder are they in?

    'Load Game' and looked for the folder full of Vassal saved games

    I'm open anytime. You want to play sometime tomorrow?

    This should be interesting, since I know absolutely nothing about Dark Eldar. I'm going to ask lots of questions.

    Be excellent to each other you stupid cunts.

    I'd be down any time after 4pm tomorrow. And yeah, Dark Eldar can be a little confusing with their massive amounts of war gear, so feel free to ask away.

    Greetings all, this is my first post here, I joined because a friend had mentioned this league and I was hoping to join, then it turned out that I was already too late..... but since I'm here, I may as well ask if there's a spot for someone to join in at this juncture in time.... I generally play Orkz

  • ElderCatElderCat Registered User, ClubPA regular
    edited August 2010
    We just started, and actually have an odd number, so if you want to join we would have an even number! Just let me know you time zone and get to work on your list. I am the odd man out so just let me know when you could get a game in.

    Pollo, when are you down for a game?

    Alright folks, after playing around with a list for a while, I have decided to raise the core to 750 on the 5th week instead of giving you another block that week. so when you remake your lists after your week 4 game, your core will raise to 750 points, with 4 blocks to choose from.

    Week1: Core +3 blocks. Use the Core and 1 block to make a 750 point (or less) list (obeying the standard force org chart) based on who your opponent is.
    Week2: Core +3 blocks. Use the Core and 1 block to make a 750 point (or less) list.
    Week3: Core +4 blocks. Use the Core and 2 blocks to make a 1000 point (or less) list.
    Week4: Core +4 blocks. Use the Core and 2 blocks to make a 1000 point (or less) list.
    Now you may change your list.
    You may edit your Core (now up to 750 points) and your blocks to streamline it, or add a more effective unit for the higher points cost battles for the 2nd half of the League.
    Week5: Core +4 blocks. Use the Core and 2 blocks to make a 1250 point (or less) list.
    Week6: Core +4 blocks. Use the Core and 2 blocks to make a 1250 point (or less) list.
    Week7: Core +5 blocks. Use the Core and 3 blocks to make a 1500 point (or less) list.
    Week8: Core +5 blocks. Use the Core and 3 blocks to make a 1500 point (or less) list.

    Gabriel_Pitt............v.............TheLawinator

    Lawintor wins!


    ...

    BARELY.

    It was a tough game. My list only has twenty-one models in it, and by turn two, although my bikes had crashed into his lines, rain of plasma and demolisher fire had depleted me to 1/8 my starting force. Then my last biker, scouts, and apothecary died, leaving just my bike captain, all by himself. At which point, Lawinator's master of ordnance dropped an earthshaker round that scattered SQUARE onto the command squad, killing everyone except the commander.

    That was the end of turn two.

    The game did not end until turn five, when I rolled a natural 2 to end the game, my lone captain just out of position to zoom in and contest the single objective Lawinator's remaining veteran squad was able to control. That captain LITERALLY shrugged off more fire than it took to obliterate the rest of my army. Two hydras fired on him for three turns straight, and he considered it a pleasing showed. :D

    That captain was infuriating and you should give him special treatment in your future armies.

    Yeah, even though it was a digital incarnation, something needs to be done to commemorate this. Maybe stitch bullet impacts around the base throwing up dirt, or something, the captain still unconcerned.

    On another note, Day was a class act in putting up with the fact that I hadn't used Vassal before. So I thank him for that.

    I'd also like to congratulate Smurfy on his fairly decisive victory last night. He nobly put up with me being a newb with VASSAL and a lackluster opponent in general, though I'm working hard on improving both those fronts for future games 8-) . I'm definitely looking forward to having more than 3 units on the field, too...

    I played my game with Extreaminatus today. It was a victory for the Imperial Guard.

    Although not by much. He got on the objectives in the first turn, and it took the rest of the game to dislodge him, and even then his guys fought to the last man.

    I think it would have gone the other way had his luck held out. The dice were really against him. My hellhound took a pair of lances every turn, and was still alive at the end. His HQ also had the bad luck to crash land right in front of a platoon of guardsmen.

    It was a fun game, and really made me scared of the dark eldar.

    Be excellent to each other you stupid cunts.

    Mazzy wins! 4kp to 2kp, great game. Chaos managed to defeat the bunker, but both sides were greatly reduced in number.

    I'm going to have to do up a special ork model to commemorate the single ork left from one mob who just wouldn't fail a moral check!

    As I recall, we just even'd up, but you're more than free to get the program and everything set up and can get games on the side to learn the program until we can accept you in? :)

    As for Susan: Was trying to help ya with tactics against me. You could have done really well if you Immobilized my Transports before they crossed the field, as well as using your Jetbikes mobility/range to their advantage. (I capitalized on them separating from your forces, something you could tell when i all jumped on them in the turn they got too close.)

    If you merely did that, and used a Warrior block to block my movement past the immobilized vehicles, it would have been a draw. Sisters don't like charges, as you saw. So much so that your HQ could just go solo and be a wrecking ball in assaults while the rest of the Troops focus on the Mission Objective. (Your flag.)

    So, I am trying to help, really!
