Re: Fortifications

I like the idea of it having to fit on a flyer base. The only other suggestion is to have it be a building at least the size of the Wall of Martyrs Imperial Bunker terrain piece. It needs to be something that can reasonably be targetted without being enormous. That being said would anyone have a pro...

Re: 2014 questions

I think we all agree that with some models last year it was difficult to determine just what it was supposed to be or what weapons it was using, esp with the arms race ramping up more and more as it is (more and bigger titans being scratch built) I welcome at least some guidelines for this.

Re: Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

Personally I will have a few D weapons for next year but I feel the best use of them is to deal with other super-heavies that have D weapons of their own.

Re: 6th edition strategic assets

The primary difficulty with using the SA that require you to spent victory points is that they are intended for the scoring system that you collect points at the end of each turn. Instead we have adopted the system that points only matter at the very end, in fact the only points you can be considere...

Re: 6th edition strategic assets

I know in the past if a formation granted a specific Strategic Asset you got it but the one for Space Marine Masters of the Chapter is a modification of the High Command type formation ability to get one SA each break and I don't believe that will be used but I could be wrong.

Re: 6th Edition Apoc rules

Personally I always considered the infantry to be larger than they should be, I can't fit 10 marines into the hold of a Rhino, but rules say they can. I would base the scale of any conversions to the vehicles.

Re: Plans For 2014

I did feel bad for you running back and forth between tables, next year it might be a good idea to have anyone who covers two tables to be faced off against another person in the same situation, at least as much as possible.

Re: Plans For 2014

It might be difficult to make that setup work, but it does sound like a great idea and would be all for playing that map. Personally I'll be adding in some scratch built Reavers, another warhound and some Necron super heavies (look what the Ordo Xenos found!)

Re: PreGame

What could be done for daemons is you do one roll for each daemon of the same type, so all Heralds of Khorne are rolled together on one set of rolls, etc

Re: PreGame

Personally I think the best idea would be to allow players to do all those rolls beforehand and I would recommend players that will need to keep track of these things bring blank cards to write on to keep track.

Re: PreGame

You still get invuls against D weapons this year but next when we use the current rules you don't, under D weapons it says you aren't allowed any saves of any kind, invulnerable save is a kind of save.

Re: House Rules (need your input)

D weapons have listed AP, so if it is AP 1 then yes I would say he would ignore it.

Re: Turn 1.5 Beer Bash

Drinking not highly encouraged? in Canada? It's just no drinking in the hall we are using for the game, there are plenty of bars and pubs around that area of Hamilton, all walking distance.

Re: Final decision on whether we will use the new book

The reserves we used last year was you split everything in reserve into 2 groups, one group will arrive on turn 2, the other group will arrive turn 3
