    Page 100 might be the wrong place to ask this, but I'm looking for some ideas. As Dayspring will attest I currently live in the middle of nowhere. That means I don't get to play unless I take a 4 hour bus trip to Tokyo. I'd like something a little more local, but there are no stores and as far as I know no people. Does anyone have any ideas for trying to get a local scene up and running without a FLGS to act as a kick-off point?

    My local games shop has a couple Death Masque boxes... I'm working on a Deathwatch army as a side project while I finish my tyranids and I'm super tempted to grab a box.

    I know I don't need a fourth army, but Harlequins seem like a lot of fun to paint and play.

    I have several armies but harlequins work under the aeldari banner so....
    How much are they since I kind of wanted one but I feel it's just cheaper to play ebay for them or wait and see if one of the Xmas armies if of them

  • KhraulKhraul Registered User regular
    Not sure... he's got two or three of most of the GW box sets on his shelves, including some very old ones.

    I've messaged the store's FB page. I'll let you know when he gets back to me.

    Death Masque is absolutely amazing if you want a Harlequin army quickly. The only things I think it's outright missing from their whole damn Codex are, what, the Shadowseer and Solitaire?

    I kind of hope that GW will reprint it at some point, because I don't think the Harlequins are ever going to get a Start Collecting box.

    Gw is going to drop the next chapter of Vigilus this weekend as is teasing a "huge" reveal.

    My guess is deamon incursion.

    edit: hmmm, looks like the deleted the post (which was all red text anyway) and have now put up a totally rewritten article. Looks like somebody uploaded an earlier draft by accident

    Vigilus has become reverse Cadia, so I'm sure there are many more Chaos cults hiding on the planet. I'm sure there will be a Tau expeditionary force sent to the planet as well. And maybe some Custodes to aid the war effort. Also there are some Knights there. Oh, it's also a Necron tomb world.

    Alright, looks like pretty much everyone is invited to the party.

    If there are people who are interesting in the idea of 40k but are new to wargaming, etc. you can organize a slow grow league where every month or two weeks or whatever you get together and play, maybe a small tournament, with incrementally larger armies. I imagine in this situation you'd need to host and have tables and terrain, etc. but the buy-in for starting 40k from scratch isn't bad these days.

    If no one's even really heard of 40k but are generally nerdy maybe run a campaign of one of the various RPG lines, a game of FFG's Rogue Trader is what finally got me into 40k (after being interested in the setting since Dawn of War 1 but sticker-shocked right out of the store in my poor youth, lol)

  • BadablackBadablack Registered User regular
    Chances are there’s a number of 40kers around you, but nobody knows anyone else. Put up a sheet at your local hobby place with a Facebook group and see if anyone bites.

    After looking at it more I think I kind of like the helmet version on the head Torvald Orksbane comes with.

    The Cryptek from Forgebane and Gravis Captain from Dark Imperium that I bought off of ebay arrived. Gonna wolf up the captain, saw a lot of cool ones done where the left hand fist had lightning claws glued on as the fingers. I'm assuming the original fingers were cut off. Looking forward to getting these together and maybe finally putting together and magnetizing my predator tanks and storm wolf gunships.

    Is there an easy conversion somewhere to transfer the Path to Glory warband tables to 40k or maybe killteam?

    I'd like to run a warband campaign with a buddy, but I don't want to do a manual point conversion (I also don't own any AOS codices to check model costs for champions etc)

    Have you ever heard of an app called Gamefor? You might start by giving that a shot, since it's purpose is for stores to promote events and help RPG, tabletop, and CCG gamers find other players in their vicinity. I have no idea how many people might be using it in Japan, but it couldn't hurt to check it out.

    To get a local scene going, if you know people who are interested, starting with Killteam and some hangout, build and paint get togethers might be a good starting point.

    Basically yes :) Bumfuck nowhere Fukushima prefecture. A town called Aizuwakamatsu in the west of the prefecture.

    I guess the biggest problem is that no, I don't know anyone interested. The people I do know like boardgames, but none have shown any interest in the wargaming side. We'll see if I can change that, one has expressed some interest in Shadespire, so when they come this weekend I'm going to try and get that to the table. That and I've ordered Blackstone Fortress which should be up their alley.

    日本語OKか? Or are you looking for English speakers? I don't think there are any military bases or other concentration of English speakers nearby. If you're looking to play with Japanese speakers (or even with limited English speaking) you might try looking for Japanese gaming scenes which unfortunately I don't know much about. But send a tweet to Andy Kitowski who lives in Yokohama and literally makes his living translating Japanese RPGs. I'm sure he knows how to find meet ups and FLGS etc. I'd be pretty interested myself as I'm thinking of taking a job in Misawa in the near future.

    Storming across a world in the throes of being consumed by the swarm, amongst biomatter slurry so concentrated it's begun the process of crystallization, Old One Eye and his Hive Kraken outrunners surge toward the enemy to ensure this world (my kitchen counter) remains their prize!

    After some frantic painting this week I've gotten my 1500pt Hive Fleet Kraken list painted to tabletop for an event on Saturday. Everything but the Maleceptor needs carapace/claw highlights still, which I'm bummed I didn't have time to do, but otherwise looks alright. The carapace is still super shiny from the wash, but hopefully highlights will tone that down. Based everything today before work... Vallejo black lava and ground amethyst... going for what's described above... black goo with crystals growing from it.

    I'm pretty happy though, as prior to three weeks ago the only thing painted were the genestealers. The maleceptor only came out of the box on the 7th or so. After this event I'll finish highlights and then maybe start work on my deathwatch.

    Japanese is fine, the problem is there's no stores that sell anything even tangentially related. Even boardgames are limited to monopoly and the game of life. I might check out the community centre at some point, and I've got a co-worker who's a student at the local comp sci focussed university so I'll see if there's anything similar over there.

    In the meantime, here's a spinny knight.

    Depends on the store.

    Mine, if I was not in CO was 15% off all GW.

    I know a few places had it set up so if you bought <$100 you got 15%, $100-399 you got 25%, and $400+ was 35% only. In the states that is. Again because of how GW writes the contracts you technically can't advertise over 15% off.

    Edit: This is FLGS not GW stores.

    My LGS is doing a "Tanksgiving" event tomorrow. It's a three lap race where each "tank" (you can use any vehicle as your tank as long as it is fully painted and ground based) starts off with 6 hull points and moves 6" plus 1" per remaining hp. Each turn vehicles can fire in a 180 degree forward arc rolling 2d6 shots that hit on 4+ and remove a hull point on a 5+. After dropping to 0hp vehicles drop down to a flat 6" movement per turn. Players roll off for movement/shooting order at the beginning of every turn. Ork vehicles painted red get +1" of movement.

    Vehicles will block other vehicles for movement, so the best bet seems to be to take an Ork on a red warbike so I can weave in between the other vehicles, but I am incredibly tempted to take my Fellblade instead and Tokyo Drift it around the corners to try and block everyone behind me.

    Guess the writing really is on the wall for real Marines. Suppose my time in the hobby is getting closer to the end then. Really not a fan of the Primaris look or fluff. (don't like the mk4 helmet being 'standard' - mk7 is the most iconic look for a marine for me. Also really hate the weird Stormcast knees. And making the proportions 'human, but bigger' doesn't look right to me. Marines shouldn't have 'realistic' proportions)
