    I'd join you guys, but I'd only start bawling hysterically mid-match.

    This is what I like about Steam. Old game that everyone who grabbed on day 1 has had their fill of the multiplayer with. Steam do a sale, boom, instant interest through steam groups to do multiplayer again.

    totally missed those necron images! I'm sad Tomb Blades are kinda lame, but thats okay. I may still buy a unit just to put them in the transport flier, because I think the ability to even do that is hilarious :P

    Definitely getting some stalkers, some spyders, and some wraiths. Putting the spyders on a flying base like that was genius, imo
    Personally I think they look better then the art work made them appear.
    But yes over all I'm loving the new models.

    I dig the Tomb Blades as a concept. Wish their rules were better. "We use them as a space fighters because we don't need no stinking cockpits!"

    Hey, that was a lot of fun! I need to figure out the controls a little better. I wasn't sure how to throw grenades even.

    Q for keyboard controls, LB for 360 controller.

    So many orks lost their lives tonight. I feel like I should start an ork army as an apology.

    Man, I hadn't played in so long I had forgotten how to toss grenades too.. and I specifically took my tactical loadout with them cause I knew how helpful they would be.. Oh wells! :P I will tweak some loadouts for Exterminatus the next time we do that.. Much good times.

    The following people are amazing and I love them: Wildcat, Timspork, Kias, Denada, susan, Sharp101, [GHSC]Ryctor, Matev, Matrias, ItBurns, Slapnuts, Dayspring, see317, and the unknown poster that sent me a box of Death Company! <3 If you get them as Santees you should buy them amazing things!

    Not to send Matrias into tear-filled nostalgia, but I really liked that opening sequence to Space Marine. The little text-chat was a rather elegant and original way to do the exposition.

    Also: BoLS did another "BoW got these first, so we're going to crop out their watermark, then force people to register on our really shitty forums to see the pictures!"

    I hate that shit. When TIC did their Adepticon cast they linked it on BOLS and only put credit to TIC in very small letters at the bottom.

    I really like those Tomb Blade and triarch stalker models. Not a huge fan of much else.

    I love the new Spyders, they look way better than the old ones.

    The big walker thing is cool too. Wraiths are alright I guess, I think I prefer the old ones but these are fine. Special Characters are pretty bad I think, none of them are doing anything for me. I guess the spider guy is pretty cool.

    Wraiths, Spiders and Stalkers are the only new units I wanted in my army and they all look pretty boss so I'm happy.
    Wonder what the stalker will look like without the crew though. I'm not really a fan of the necron pilots.
    Also I was kind of hoping the Spider would come with bonus scarab bases. Maybe I can harvest some as bitz.

    I bought Space Marine for the 360 when it first came out. I got to the... bridge? section... then lost interest. All those forts, and tons of orks coming at me. I just couldn't do the killing blows to gain health fast enough to deal with the next wave of enemies.

    Sadly your story will be told to those as a lesson of learning fear and loss of faith

    I bought it for the computer and had a blast I had tons of thoughts of what I want to do with my stompa with what I saw as some of the spaceship guns did

    It is still my ultimate wish that they make a system inside the DoW2 engine that allows you to play tabletop 40k with interactive terrain and units.

    Or the same but with the Space Marine engine.

  • Dr_KeenbeanDr_Keenbean Registered User regular
    I sure hope the new Chaos book has some neat Thousand Sons. Especially since, as mentioned earlier, Alpha Legion would be impossible do do correctly and 1k Sons are my next favorite of the traitors.

    Well, I think the DoW2 style would fit an actual tabletop game a little better. Not to mention a large variety of units are already made, thus saving on art assets.

    Could be a DLC gold mine, too. Pay for the game and get like, Assault on Black Reach in the game. Then charge DLC prices for units, new map/board layouts, terrain pieces, paint schemes, etc. Hell, even make it subscription based like D&D Insider.

    So much fan servivce to be given and money to be had

    All at the cost of cannibalizing sales of the physical game. One solution would be to include a code in each box/blister that unlocked that box's worth of stuff in the game.

    Like buy a real tac squad, get a digital tac squad. That way you could play with your meatspace army in the pornwebs.

    But it will never happen, not with GW's current management who won't even let us get digital versions of army books and rules.

    I feel like people that play actual tabletop arent going to stop playing actual tabletop. They will most certainly play both in most cases. The digital version will pickup all of the people I've met that always tell me "Its too expensive, I don't have the time, I don't have any stores in my area".

    Like I said... it is my ultimate dream. I know it will never happen :(

    No, but it would almost certainly stop new people from getting into the TT. I'd be okay with seeing a digital version of Epic though.

  • skarsolskarsol Registered User regular
    Speaking of stopping people from getting into the TT, the SM finecast tax is becoming pretty damned hefty.

    why are you smelling it?

    Ah, I misread the counts. It was looking like the Damned Legionaires doubled in cost, but they also doubled in count. My bad. ~13% increase in the individual models for the cheaper material. I guess as far as GW goes, we got off light this year. :)

    It will be in GW's exciting new printing method Fineprint! Cheaper to produce but will cost $80 for the book. Ink with be splattered randomly on the pages and letters or even whole words just won't even be there.

    I'm cool with a Finecast Calgar. I actually wanted to buy and convert that model, but I was on the fence about the honor guard, as well as working with metal.

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    I have the metal Vulkan still in package, I'll still probably buy a Finecast one. One day I'll actually field him.

    I was actually thinking, "I could take a quick trip to Toronto over the weekend..."

    It'd be pretty irresponsible of me, but I've never been to another Canadian province before...
