@Kohato my MBR on the primary partition blew up
I had no idea what the damage was, so new drive and new install
blackstone stuff getting KT rules makes that box significantly more appealing

@WindstormSCR that sucks that your PC blew up, but Windows 10 is not so bad
@Thairne yeah, it was not the experience we were hoping for, and is one of the reasons I tend to avoid tournaments
although, I've only completed in a couple of doubles tournaments - with the expectation that they're "more fun"/ friendly than singles competitions - if that is the case, I'll NEVER enter a singles tournament because yesterday wasn't a great deal of fun ...

Considering the price point stays the same and that I can sell off a Kastellan Sprue for 60$...

still a lotta money, but at that point I only need like 3 iron striders and 2 sets of priests and I've got all my admech needs filled
Dirk Bachert

but 80$ saved per box.
That is a hard yes from me (and a hard tearing up considering the backlog)

Iron Striders ...
pah
Dragoons or bust!

I gots 3 of em already!
also, the marines from DoI arrived. I'm a bit miffed, I'd admit.. while the paintjob is top quality, they used ravenwing shoulderpads on some, not all, which have a plain one. No devastator decal either. No Sarge.
for the project that is fine (and I can apply a decal myself) but as a gaming piece...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 18:04
gah, and they used trimmed shoulderpads without painting the trim...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 19:35
AND THEY USED RAVENWING TORSOS
GNYAAAH!
They confused the RW symbol with the DA one....

well for 50$ a model I expect a lil better tbh...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 20:25
:ambulance: $50 A MODEL?!?!?!?! blimey - you must love your fish...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 20:26
ayup.
Not the fish, but it should look good. Its a diorama after all.
And as said, DoI aint cheap anymore. I think total was 260$ for them
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 20:32
WOW! yeah, I can totally understand

248$, just checked
including model
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 20:42
righto, time for a conversation with them then
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 21:02
they.. or rather I, am pretty lucky in that regard
the RW shoulderpart is gonna point away from the viewer, so pretty much invisible
the chest is not that visible with devastators anyway, also not the main viewing angle (and you need to be pretty knowledge to even notice it in the first place)
But I wrote them as much.. I mean they tried to be nice, grabbed in the bits box and misidentified the bits...
anyway. I just resined the ruins they're standing on as a final test... if all goes well the projekt will be done in 2 weeks.

perfect
sounds like a near miss (of the good kind) for everyone
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 21:23
well the good thing is - my desire to get get comissions done is about zero right now xD
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:24
hehehe, time to get your own brushes out eh?!
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 21:25
oh I did and I do... since my first game this year I've been kind of active.
Built all my admech backlog, primed it all, zenital highlighted half of the bunch so the red is done, finished 2 Kastellans...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:28
beautiful
I feel a bit bummed after getting smashed up so badly yesterday
but I think it a push to enjoy gaming properly and push to play more narrative games
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 21:29
I hear ya, I know that feel.
exactly what I wanted to write right now
Tournaments are... not fun, unless you'Re HIGHLY competetive
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:29
I have to admit that I've never really enjoyed the "I MUST WIN" mindset, and I think yesterday just cemented that for me
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 26 2018 21:30
As long as the game isn't a smash either direction I find it fun, but 8th has more of those than 7th did (unless you were playing nothing but 7e power lists)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 26 2018 21:30
narrative is where the most fun is had tbh
the one cultist that shot the last terminator on overwatch? Those are the moments you long for in 40k
the .1% chance that you might actually roll the correct dice and pull of the impossible? Feels good man.
Simon Porter

Nov 26 2018 21:30
I have the Open War deck - but I've never used it - so I think it is time to find some "willing victims" as test subjects
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 26 2018 21:30
I'm looking forward to cityfight
Open war is nice to use for random deployment
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:31
cityfight looks good too
does anyone have any idea what will be in the box?!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 26 2018 21:31
@FarseerVeraenthis what we do at my local is alternate placing terrain, then roll for mission, roll for marker placement, then randomly select deployment map
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:32
(and, I had a moment like that the other day - my Primaris Apothecary killed a Blood Angels Chaplain in CC)
sounds like fun
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 26 2018 21:32
it makes for a much more balanced game, because there is less opportunity to game the deployment phase than standard rules
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:33
deployment is one of the areas we did badly in yesterday
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:40
I need to get on with painting some dudes or I'm in danger of missing my self imposed "gaming standard by the end of the year" target
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 26 2018 21:46
but yes, in the mean time, more "fun" games :smile:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
