    Alright then, Gabriel you have a choice to make, you can go to the planet now, fight a BFG battle now, and maybe go to to planet even if you lose, or go to the asteroid belt. Just remember that you might not be able to repair damage if you flee to the planet after losing. If he pursues you to the planet after winning you carry over damage.

    The best option would be to beat off the false emperor's lapdogs now, and then plunder the planet at my leisure. Huntzy! It's on!

    Does Vassal have spectator mode? It may be worth it to get drunk and heckle a game in progress.

    Yeah. So long as we don't lock the game to keep out spectators, anyone can pop in and watch.

    So do Huntzy and I just arrange when to have our game, or is there some sort of formal process we need to go through first?

    Let's also mock them because they can't get Ork tech to work, since they don't have the Orky psychic fields or whatever.

    Nope just arrange a game yourselves. the only formalities are: be sure your lists are posted, and be sure to do your aftermath rolls and experience gain rolls in front of your opponent at the end of the game, if there is an aftermath step.

    Heffling you are forced to flee, where do you go? High orbit around the planet, I assume. Or you COULD go to the asteroid belt.

    Ok, I'm ready. I think I'd like to be a raiding fleet for now since I don't really know how to play BFG. I use the Imperial Guard, but I think it'd probably be best to consider me traitor guard, just so I don't too badly imbalance the sides.

    I'm at GMT -4, free any time really, but for the exception that I don't get back before 6 on wednesday/thursday.

    Here is my 2000 point list:

    OK what we are waiting on: Heffling needs to declare where he is fleeing to, and huntzy and gabe need to do their post game stuff, and figure out who is going where at least. After that , Pollo needs to deploy, and then it's a new turn. I guess before the new turn everyone needs to submit their lists, me included. I am seriously considering a 48 hour time limit on moves and a 24 hour time limit on retreats, because this waiting around is really killing the momentum.

    Seriously you guys, this gets it's own post since SO MANY people have done this.

    YOU GET A FREE FLEET COMMANDER, AND YOU CAN'T BUY A DIFFERENT ONE.

    The leadership and number of re-rolls starts out low and gets better, that's kinda the whole part of playing a campaign. Check page 153 of the Big blue book, the campaign section, for specifics. Or refer to the special rules I made up for your race if it isn't there.

    For Huntzy and my game, as we were playing Cruiser Clash, and with Huntzy's departure we're calling that a successful fleet-wide disengage, I get 135 VP for the three gladius I detonated, and 10% of the point value of the rest of his fleet (as none of them were crippled) so 272 (rounded up) VP total.

    To determine renown points, VP are divided by 100, rounding up. So:

    3 renown points for VP.
    1 renown point for completing my Extended Duty subplot, and not getting my ass kicked (so I was really lucky Huntzy pulled out early - he would've been in range to start hitting me with Lock On! bombardment cannons his next turn...)

    Damn, look at me now, I'm so renowned I'm INfamous!

    Also, correcting my list, because I was intimidated by the rulebook saying YOU MUST TAKE A CHAOS LORD! I will instead spend that 50 points on one more Infidel escort.

    Elder, aside from Huntzy's move, do you need anything more from us?

    I'll pop in to sector 3. If I'm raiding, I might as well pick the best planet. Does the planet type affect anything?

    You forgot +2 for winning the battle. Congrats, you just got promoted, choose a new mark of chaos.

    Well it depends on if you want to pursue, I think you said you would not pursue him. So then there would be an aftermath step: roll for crew experience, repair, make appeals.

    For raiding fleets, not that you know of, yet.

    After thinking about this this morning, I realized that there is no reason for raiding fleets to ever be in an approach. So I am going to clarify that Raiding fleets move from planet to planet, and if they are forced to flee they will flee to the asteroid belt. Really there are just here to get some more 40k games in. So I moved Skarsol to high orbit, and Pollo gets to be in high orbit.

    Yes, you have taken the planet, it's yours. You are currently purging the taint of chaos from that planet. Next turn you can leave a holding force there, and move on to other planets.

    Yes, considering that I took six points of damage to my cruisers just by showing up to the game (let's hope I don't roll that subplot again :P,) I'm going to stay where I am and lick my wounds.

    Hmm, I think I'm gonna have to drop out of the BFG part of this; I just don't know the rules well enough to make it fun for my opponent. So I'll just stick to the 40K side of things for now I guess.

    If anyone has time to run through a BFG practice game or two though I'd greatly appreciate it, but if not it's no biggie.

    I'll throw up a 40K list tomorrow when I get a chance.

    Doesn't exactly help that 'nids BFG rules are slightly more restrictive than normal BFG rules. What timezone are you Halos? I'd love to brush up on BFG as well (Can't exactly right now cause I'm at work, but give it a few hours...)

    Bleh I haven't played 1500pts in ages so this is probably pretty shoddy, plus I'm going for a fluffy vanguard assault style thing so it's probably not the most optimised list in the world (it has Lictors in for a start...)

    However, I refer you to FAQ#3 :

    You have a 500 point sideboard you should fill out.
