    Yep, last main rulebook FAQ states that two strats with the same name (from different codex) are considered the same (so no doubling). They used VotLW as an example, but lightning reflexes is in the same boat.

    This also applies to psychic powers. This means if you have the option take miasma of pestilence from the chaos space marine book, as it targets all NURGLE units, whereas the DG and Daemons versions only target thier faction keywords despite being the same spell.

    I've used two 4ft x 2ft x 2in insulation sheets with felt stuck to them with spray adhesive for Warmachine for... four years or so? I had a wooden table topper before and it went in the trash as soon as I saw how much more often I was grabbing the cheap-y "extra" boards to play on versus my super nice one.

    As a matter of fact this weekend, I am going Joann's shopping for some good martian red fabric to stick to a couple 6ft x 2ft x 2" boards I had cut last weekend. Total cost will be around $30 if I get really nice fabric and don't use a coupon (I always use coupons at Joann's)

    So if I recall correctly, someone here wanted new Arbites models?

    Whaaaat

    Full on inquisitorial warband, arbites, and even more nurgle?!

    Although technically it's a rogue trader warband and his personal house troops? No shotguns on these models.

    Oh it is. You get nasty choke points to fight over. The hardest part is los blocking. We use to have a map kind of like this at my old flg with islands and bridges over water. Different game with 5th but it was always a crazy game.

    Make up your fucking mind already, GW. Unless Rogue Trader is going to be more like a Shadespire deal, then it's fine.

    I'm assuming that Rogue Trader is a starter box for Kill Team or something because holy shit does it not make sense to have four different skirmish games in the 40K setting at the same time.

    Islands sound really cool. How was it setup to make it so one player didn't have a major advantage?

    Everyone would get about the same amount of land in the deployment zones. I mean some armies were in heavy advantage anyway with shooting and stuff. It was more for narrative than competitive games.

    They had another trailer for Killteam awhile back.

    It's basically "squad size 8th edition", that's all.

    ... this edition of Kill Team is a fully fledged game in its own right – it doesn’t use the existing Warhammer 40,000 rules set (but it’s just as thrilling!)

    They're more fancy rogue trader house guards than arbites. They got a real "space argonought" look to 'em.

    Alright, that shouldn't be an issue. This isn't a really competitive thing, just my brother and friends goofing off and trying to find ways to make it interesting with the board.

    Not Nurgle or Chaos, they are aliens called Slaugth from Dark Heresy.

    "Slaugth science and technology is likewise nightmarish and powerful, seamlessly melding the organic and inorganic to achieve its ends in a blasphemous symbiosis of form and function. The Slaugth seem capable of manufacturing strange techno-organic construct creatures of a bewildering variety, carrying out their master's wishes as need be. "

    Getting a good, cheap, light solution is going to be pretty hard. Keenbean made his table topper, I made my collapsible, expandable, wooden folding table, but ultimately, the cheapest, easiest, and generally most useful solution is just grabbing a couple of folding 6x2 tables from Walmart, Target, or wherever.
    We had an 8x2.5 folding table for a picnic already, so when I went to get another table, we hit up the Walmart and could not find another 8x2.5, just a 6x2.5

    That worked great, though, since with a 6x4 battlemat, we have a play area and an area around the play area to keep random stuff like dead guys, drinks, paraphernalia, etc. Worked out pretty nice.

    ****

    My Necrons, most of them came in, so I tried a game with them against a buddy's Astra Militarum last night. It was just a quick 1000 point game. What I learned? Destroyers are awesome, especially with so many CPs so I can use 1 point stratagems constantly!

    I still got my ass kicked due to poor target selection and battle cannons just chewing through my guys, though. Sigh.

    I am going to try out three vindicators this weekend (well 1 actual vindicator and 2 proxies but the folks I play against are cool with that and everything looks like a rhino anyway). I have this feeling with the cp increase and the fact 3 vindicators+warpsmith is less than 500 points might make them okay if you get the stratagem off. They are rather tough at 11 W and 8T.

    Also if that stratagem goes off with some decent roles 3d3 mortal wounds in a 4 inch circle isn't something to sneeze at.

      (4 sgts, 2 melta, 4 plasma, 4 autocannons, rest bolters)
    • 5 Raptors
    • 2 Rhinos

    Full gallery of photos here

    A few choice photos under the spoiler

    They're 100% nurgle. Slaugth are humanoid piles of worms. Random mix of claws, flies, tentacles and additional mouths is chaos. Flies, fleas and maggots is also definitely nurgle.
    People are just getting caught up on the odd machine bits on the nurgle figures, but it's probably more that the nurgle side isn't an invading band of pirates but a corrupted half of the crew, including servitors and bionic ratings.

    It might be. I am not sure as I think necromunda was suppose to be that but is more of a forgeworldesque game. Kill team is well kill team but again they could release shadespire like teams but I don't think so. So maybe it is.

    I'm pretty sure it's going to be like Overkill or Execution force (far too many nurgle units for it to be anything akin to shadespire), but it is strange to see the board layout without any cards anywhere if they play a role.
    Boarding action 40K competitive skirmish would be pretty damn cool though.

    FTL style boardgame with a bunch of summoning units could work based on those two pics - three main nurgle baddies but with infinite hordes and monsters as cheap disposable summons, whilst the Imps have a few heros with pets/respawning armsmen. Survive the mutiny, fix the ship and/or get out.

    I've been following the lore of 40k for awhile now, and I figure this is the best place to ask this question.

    So I've heard Ragnar Blackmane be referred to as "the Young King." So what is he king of?

    He is a young wolf lord which are like the kings of Fenris kind of.

    Local GW has a 500 point escalation league starting up. Seriously considering going in with a vanguard detachment of 2 Neurothropes and 9 Zoanthropes. Everything has a 3+ invuln, 3+ wounds, ignores morale, flies, and gets wounds back when killing stuff with smite. I don’t do anything in the shooting or melee phase, and can sacrifice all my zoanthropes psychic power to spew mortal wounds onto a localized area.

    This Battle Sister will be the first you’ll be able to get your hands on, a special preview release ahead of the main wave to make the wait a little bit more bearable. We can’t say when just yet, but stay tuned to Warhammer Community to find out as soon as we have a date.
