    Right side is traditional paint and a coat of wash. Left is that new contrast paint, just one coat over gray primer. I'm fucking impressed!

    Oh hey, the updated Thornfall Theme Force.

    Let's see what changed...
    Farrow warbeast models gain Salvage. (When a warjack is destroyed while in the melee range of a model with Salvage, remove d6 damage points from the model with Salvage. If the destroyed warjack was a heavy warjack or a colossal, remove +3 additional damage points from the model with Salvage.)

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA

    So I registered for a Warmahordes side event at NOVA Open but I haven't played in a couple years. And I am really confused. Apparently it will be using the new rules that are coming out? Is there a good summary somewhere? Or do we not not really know everything until GenCon?

    Can you specify on new rules? New steamroller rules, or new theme rules?

    My best guess is that it is referencing the new rules for themes, which will officially pre-release on GenCon.

    It won't likely change any of the things available to you, but it does change how you can reach free units. As long as all of your units fall within theme allowable units, you can take 1 free thing from the list of available things, regardless of whether the 25 points was spent on units with a keyword in their title, or filler solos.

    The new Cryx living pirates mashup looks very strong, probably the strongest theme in the faction. I won't play it, but it's potent.

    I'm pleased with black industries incorporating thralls

    So since all the new themes are out I have started trying to decide what to play. Any advice on these lists?

    Got a chance to demo Riot Quest at the Privateer booth... and I think I really like it?

    Not sure if it was related to how, in the three-player demo, we ended up putting Hungerford’s crew all in the cooler at the same time.

    But yeah. Mechanically it works a little like MonPoc with the white action dice, but you’re rotating around the board after activating a model. So you have six action dice at the start of the turn, and you can choose to activate one model. Actions generally cost 1 dice to perform, and that dice is put on the character card itself. When making a attack, you automatically get some blue dice for accuracy and you have to spend at least one white dice, but can spend more if you really need something to hit. Roll hits, compare to a character’s DEF, which is usually split like DEF 3/5. If you have, say, three hits you do one point of damage, but if you have 5 you do 2.

    ...oh yeah, how you win. There’s a deck of Bounties that give you two objectives. Some are easy, like “kill a enemy model,” but some like Bombing Run are a bit trickier. A bomb spawns in the middle, and whoever runs over it picks it up. You have to carry it to the point (that was randomly designated when the bounty showed up) and make a test to actually rig it. If you succeed at the bounty, you take the cars and get the VP that are marked on it, and a new bounty shows up.

    There’s also treasure chests that can spawn that people can fight over that can give you coins to buy a Riot Gear item to attach to a character. Characters can only have one equipped, and lose it on death. You also drop a coin on the board when you die that anyone can grab.

    At the end of a full round (when everyone’s out of dice), you roll one dice for every character that you have that’s dead, and revive that many. You roll a d6 and that spawn point on the board is where they enter.

    Didn’t get a chance to grab a starter since it was literally 5:55 PM and the hall was closing. Might go back and grab it tomorrow.

    Oh yeah, squad size. You can have a max of four characters in the arena at one time, but you can have more on your bench to whatever limit you agree with your opponent on.

    I tried to pry details about Helga on Wheels out of Hungerford, but all I got was that she’s on a large base and the mini is “amazing.”
