Re: Highlander Factions stats 0.1.5

...Originally I had other names for them like the shadow people or the wanderers, because the faction originally remained hidden for a number of years after the alien invasion of Earth. I know I'm not contributing much to this topic, but I'd like to point out that it is not hard to stay hidden in a...

Re: Some honest criticism

- Statline is Mv, Df, Ar, St, At, RA, CC, Pr, Mr, Wo, CP, Pt, Lm...doesn't that seem a BIT excessive? Valid Well when you put it that way. But still, they all seem to serve a useful purpose. - UGO-IGO. Come oooooon. Disagree This will make the game go so much slower and confusing, end of story. Wai...

Re: What I would like to see

I'll critique your thoughts for the sake of conversation: I'm not sold on the superhuman thing. The commanders already seem pretty super. They can survive 5 otherwise lethal wounds; where most humans would go down in 1. I think there is enough super in most of the units. Yes, I agree. More Dark Pote...

Re: What would you like to see in Dark Potential?

I don't think this has been mentioned - but as it's a skirmish type game I wouldn't mind some of the Necromunda mechanics coming into play. i.e. after each battle you work out what experience ppl have got. What new skills they've acquired. If they were 'killed' you work out if that was fatal, or if...

Re: Thinking about a Blood Bowl Team

Oh hey thanks! I learned that 40mm bases aren't half bad as standard issue BB pitches has 29mm squares as opposed to exactly 25mm as I had previously thought. the big guys will overlap slightly, but there is some play in the spacing. And yes, I plan on making all of the speshullists. chainsaw is eas...

Thinking about a Blood Bowl Team

I was thinking of whipping together a Goblin BloodBowl team. I will probably buy a WFB Goblin unit to convert to regular goblins. And maybe buy a fanatic. But what should I do for trolls? I'm pretty sure the WFB trolls are too big to fit on a regular base. Is this correct? Any extra and other advice...

Re: Diggin' Up The World - Vampire Counts

Also be prepaired to buy and paint a LOT of zombies and skeletons. Well I've already got a head start. I already have 120 zombies and 40 skeletons. I just need to get the "extra summons" done, but they are like half a model each when you do the whole "arm sticking out of the ground counts as a dude...

Diggin' Up The World - Vampire Counts

Alright, so I'm starting this new army see, and I'm quite new to WFB. I'm going for a Vampire Counts army with Invoke spam tactik. So far I've got this proto-list made: Master Necromancer Killy Vamp hero Support Necromancers 3 units of Zombies (plenty more for extra summons) 2 units of Skellies (rig...

Stay pure! It has got to be a pen and paper rpg first! Then the video gamers can have their day.

Re: [Unofficial] Dark potential RPG

I'm sure many people like you and I enjoy making homebrew type games. I hope I've said previously sounded like it was discouraging such a thing. But for the sake of conversation, here are a couple pointers from an unproffessional but enthusiastic source: - This is going to be a game offshoot of anot...

Re: [Unofficial] Dark potential RPG

In making an rpg for this game, I'd do my darnedest to have as many races as possible to play well with eachother. Of course, that is hard to do but variety will be key. Maybe make it a little bit separated, like when crafting a campaign or one-off game, the GM selects a race for the entire party to...

Re: Favourite Army

There's great big empty swathes of conceptual space out there for those bits of humanity stuck on Earth who don't feel like being Post-Apocalyptic Platonic Philosopher-Mercs but who still have motivations, objectives, grand plans, and who take a stab at carving out a life for themselves from the ca...
