    Quetzi, half of what you are looking at there are Orcs.

    You should see what I've done with my Arrow boys.

    I'll post pics tomorrow.


    EDIT: Oh, okay maybe not in that picture but I have a shitton of Fantasy Orcs in my army already I'll have to show you now. I turned Arrow Orcs into Tau-missile-pod weilding feral orks to represent Rokkit Launchas.

    Hm well. I have the big huge 85 piece box of Orcs. So there's some good stuff in there. I was going to turn them into tyranid-hunter ferals but I just haven't had the time or ability to do so.

    I have Feral Orks, nothing in their rules about hunting nids, is this just a fluff choice or is there an army list out there?

    Anyway tell me what you have and I'll check it out tomorrow.

    Fluff choice. I have a lot of tyranid spare parts, and I was reading the ferals fluff about how they normally name their tribe after whatever dominant species they displaced in the area, so I was going to make some genestealer themed ones, ala the various tyranid veteran types for space marines.

    So I've wanted to do my movement trays all lined with golden skulls, but haven't been able to, because I don't have enough spares, and they're hella expensive.
    Tonight I found this auction.
    I just bought two sprues. 120 skulls. I'm going to line all my movement trays with them.

    Fatal is okay as a joke system but it would be better if we took all the ridiculous crap and applied it to D20. Why? Because I don't want to roll fucking 6d100+100 to determine my initial abilities. That and all the other retarded dice rolls and impenetrable combat system basically made the game unplayable.

    t Mani: That is a lot of damn skulls and it is going to look fucking badass.

    Here's a stupid fucking question.

    but first some background.

    My dad invited me to go play DnD with his buddies, so I rolled up a ranger and ended up with a 16 dex roll, and pretty crappy rolls everywhere else. So I decided to go elven and take weapon finesse.

    how bad of an idea was it?

    Real men roll method one.

    3d6, straight down the line. Once you roll, it's set in STONE.

    But yeah, Weapon Finess isn't a bad feat if the party has no melee fighters other than you. If there is already a big badass greatsword carrying bastardtankfuck in your group, then you would probably be better off as ranged fighter.

    Point Blank Shot with a Long Bow might be a good idea if this is the case.

    Man, I am all a-bonered for Exalted 2E.

    Social combat is simply delightful.

    Coming into a scene with Droning Suggestion already cast. Then using Principle of Motion to release six consecutive social attacks, followed with the Hypnotic Tongue Technique as a coup de grace.

    So wonderful.
