    Even if they're amazing the internet will hate them. If I've learnt anything over the years, it's that 'fans' hate everything about the thing they're a fan of. Especially if it's new and/or costs money.

    The thought crossed our minds, but with me and my lesbian friends being the biggest in the bunch and this guy being 6'3" (we're both a respectable 5'10") and sporting the rape face, it didn't seem terribly feasible. Actually, it was this guy (and having the comic shop being in a shitty, shitty part of town) that got me to go get my concealed permit, so there's that.

    There's more to it involving a police officer scaring him down, but I felt that I had talked enough for one post and that the gist of my story got told.

    If I'm in that situation, I usually do, but thought talking him down would have done the trick.

    Also, I was on probation at the time, didn't want aaaaanything to do with getting in trouble.

    My biggest douche story at a gamestore is not near as creepy but still pretty Douchey.

    This happened last month in my home towns FLGS they were running a small tournie and since I like all the guys up there I drove up to play. I was playing my all foot slogging ork army for the first time and doing really well (ended up taking second place). So my third game pops up and it's against this Dark Eldar player, I should add he and I haven't gotten along since he crashed on my couch for awhile and douched it up there. We start the game and he goes to roll for his combat drugs or whatever evil pain sex thing Dark Eldar do at the beginning of the game. I had my hands in my pockets and I see the die about to roll off the table. Just reacting I put my leg against the table to stop it from rolling off (mind you no evil plan here just reaction) it lands on a 1. The Guy starts Freaking out screaming at me for stopping the die saying I did it on purpose and that it was all a plan and I was being a huge douche. He freaked for about 4 minutes calling me an asshole and raging about me purposefully making it roll a one.

    At this point the whole store has stopped playing and is looking at him as he screams that I am a douche, raging asshole and sabotaged him. A few people tried to calm him down and say to just deal with it and play and that it was not a conspiracy against his army. His friend there even said that had the die rolled a 6 he wouldn't have had a problem with it. The TO eventually said that it was in play and for us to just go. He calmed down right as I was about to pack up and forfeit the game but kept muttering how I was a douche under his breath. My army tabled his third turn for a sweet victory.

  • ExtreaminatusExtreaminatus Registered User regular
    Man, in that situation, I would have just told him to re-roll it since it was gonna go off the table anyway.

    No need for all that kind of hubbub.

    I know Warseer is hardly a great reference, but the initial reviews are surprisingly positive (especially considering that it's Warseer).

    I'll probably pick some up once I see an actual review with pictures, but the general consensus is that they afford a ton of options in terms of quick and original color schemes. Someone had even mentioned using the drybrush white over black primer, then a red wash and it worked surprisingly well. Shit like that sounds like anathema to me, knowing GW products, so I'm kind of curious to see.

    I went to play with the paints today. The store only had like 20 unique pots, and only 1 of those was a glaze, which wasn't blue, so you couldn't even duplicate the Ultramarine example from the pamphlet. The Base colors were really nice. The Dry I had no idea how to use properly. They were literally like the consistency of very cold high quality ice cream. Same sorta stickiness and resiliency. I tried to brush straight from the pot and got paint everywhere. :P The Shade and Glaze seemed to behave as advertized, although I didn't get to use the Glaze myself, and the Shade coulda flowed into the corners a bit more, but it didn't create the dreaded paint rings on the shoulder pad or leg armor of the marine, so that's good. The 2 blue Layers I used were unimpressive from the pot, and didn't seem to thin super well, but I didn't play with them for all that long.

    tl;dr: Foundations and Washes still seem to be the sweet spots.

    Edit: The white over black didn't work nearly as well for me as other people have been saying. At least 2 coats for good coverage, if not more.

    Seemed to be. I only painted one mini and was doing it quickly. Was there with the SO and she used Nuln Oil over Mephiston Red (limited color selection) and I did the "recommended" Drakenhof Nightshade over Macragge Blue and both turned out well with one pass of the wash although they coulda used a little more thinner/surfactant.

    You should have tried drybrushing with the dry paint that seemed to be a thick consistency, a good consistency for drybrushing.

    I guess what I'm saying is the Dry paints are for drybrushing.

    Yeah, I did that. It was advertized as usable straight from the pot, so that's what I tried. It failed miserably. Normal drybrush procedure of getting paint out then wiping most of it off on a paper towel worked fine, but in that case, why bother labeling it differently. I was trying to use the paints in the way they were advertized as being usable. :)

    The consistency and useability from the pot doesn't change the technique :P

    Just because you can paint right from the pot, you wouldn't try doing eyes with a tank brush, for example.

    Again, I was just doing what the redshirt said to do with the fancy new paints. :) First impressions were asked for, I gave them. This was also all done with a single brush, since that's all we were alotted. :P

    Harry dropped a rumour. Autumn of Fliers now.
    At the risk of getting the cr@p kicked out of me ..... (after the whole "summer of fliers" thing)
    I have heard scraps that suggest there may well be something going on with 'fliers'.

    I have heard some snippets about :

    a) A kit for a SM flier called a "Storm Hawk"
    b) An Ork fighter kit (might have been a fighter/bomber?)
    and
    c) A 'fliers' supplement. (...as the first supplement to 6th Edition).

    Now you have to remember I don't know so much about 40K OR follow 40K rumorz.
    So .... I don't know:

    a) If you have heard this already?
    b) What I am talking about!

    When I hear 40K stuff it really doesn't mean that much to me?
    So I tried the google 'Storm Hawk' and found this:
    (No idea of the original source ... I am sure someone hear will know if it was in a GW publication originally)

    "The Storm Hawk is a smaller, more agile transport from the same design lineage as the Storm Bird. Used extensively for small operations, as the Heresy progressed much of the STC data to build the Storm Hawk was lost although the Mechanicum have kept copies so that if it were to fall completely out of service a variant could be reintroduced at a later date."

    PLEASE REMEMBER THESE IS JUST RUMORZ

    I have based this on the smallest scraps of information, from different places.
    It is possible I have been mislead or I have put two and two together and come up with complete bobbins

    Was going to post in the vassal thread but im not sure anyone would read it there, anyone up for a teaching game or two of 40k over vassal sometime in the next week? I picked up some cheap marines forever ago and am now working on the horribly long process of stripping 50 or so marines to repaint as Bloos Angels and figure I might as well try to learn on vassal while i get my stuff ready.

    About the new paints, I highly doubt they would change anything about the washes and foundations. They are too new and perfect to really be fucked with. Any of the old paints though... I am curious if there will be any large differences.

    A Necron Monolith moves up to a Close Combat. Uses it's Eternity Gate as a Portal of Exile. 'Fires' the weapon and scores six inches. Can it hit the Close Combat and only effect Enemy models?!

    Does it require a target?
    Does it only affect enemy models?
    Is it in the FAQ?
    How does your gaming group personally feel?

    Don't have the book handy but I'm pretty sure it doesn't require a target. To me that means it's like placing a blast template without needing to put it over someone, which means I can definitely hit people in combat. If it affects everyone than you can't let it overlap your own mans, if it only affects enemies then you can.

    I don't remember if they FAQ'd it. As far as I'm aware there is no 100% concrete ruling so it really comes down to your gaming group and how you argue it.

    It does not target anything. There is no roll to hit required. The weapon type is: "Special" It simply effects models within D6 inches of the door.
    It is NOT in the F.A.Q.
    It does not allow saves of ANY kind! Simply a Strength Test.
    A Necron player says it CAN 'fire' into Close Combat and DOES NOT effect friendly models!

    WTF!?

    Being in combat has nothing to do with LoS (outside of the obvious 'these dudes are in my face and blocking LoS'), so it will still affect them.

    I'm tempted to go into that thread and say that because it says "A tyranid" singular that means there's no penalty at all if you're in range of 2 or more because 2 or more isn't "A" creature. But I think they'd ban me for trolling.
