    Bottling question

    This thread dates back to the N17 ruleset era (Underhive rulebook + gang war books) and things have changed quite a bit since then. Under the current rules for the Forgotten Riches scenario (N18 RB), you are correct that fleeing the battlefied causes the opponent to automatically win the...

    N18 Can a venator hunter take a wyld bow?

    It depends on how your group/arbitrator chooses to adapt the Venator rules to the new House of ____ structure. Venator rules were written at a time when each House gang had a single House Equipment List. Now that Equipment Lists are written on a per fighter type basis, you have to decide...

    N18 Bolt Weapons

    The bolter is the second best basic weapon in the game (second only to the enforcer boltgun), there is no competition here. The heavy bolter is one of the best heavy weapon in the game, if not the best. The only reason it's only okish is that heavy weapons in general are a bit overkill and...

    N18 Free weapons and eligible gangers

    The way I read it: Fighters who only have access to weapons from their own list (gangers and juves from the House of ___ books) cannot equip a free weapon that is not on their list, regardless of its weapon type. Fighters who can equip weapons from the TP/BM can equip any weapon from anywhere...

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    Spend total is now 58.8k, the 60k mark should be hit before the end of the week. Joe also blogged about the powers (the game equivalent of Frostgrave spells and a key component of character creation for the captain and the first mate) and the full list is also available here. Since we also have...

    N18 When a Dark Ritual Creates a Spawn - Chaos Helot Cults

    Book of ruin, page 28: Not sure what it means exactly for fighters with mutliple fighter cards though.

    N18 Sustaining Wyrd powers with continuous effect

    From the errata: Sorry, no useful continuous effect for you (or anyone)

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    Spend total got bumped to 54k, I believe it now includes orders from the US and EU. Still a long way to go to the 80k stretch goal, but the Magmite should be hit.

    N18 Ogryn Gang Starting Roster advice

    I'm pretty sure Stray shot was primarly designed as a detterent for shooting at engaged fighters (so the designer needed a high enough chance to hit the other fighter, who was presumably from the same gang as the shooter). Everything else is unforeseen consequences imo, and they never realized...

    N18 Genestealer cult Extra Arm questions

    In this particular case we know the difference was intentional (or at least was retconned as intentional) as the FAQ makes it very clear only the alpha can use his extra arm to grab an extra weapon. All of this is probably so you can use this guy in your gang. Doesn't stop it from being a dumb...

    N18 Genestealer cult Extra Arm questions

    As I said, there are no rule covering the use of more than two weapons in CC so it's completely open to houserule/interpretation. However, if using a third weapon (that you have to pay for) in CC is entirely detrimental (having to distribute attack dice among 3 weapons instead of 2 is a...

    N18 Genestealer cult Extra Arm questions

    1: It's probably to represent that their third arm has a prehensile hand instead of just claws. We have confirmation that it's not an error as it's mentionned in the latest errata: 2: We simply don't know how it's supposed to work, we can only extrapolate on how using two weapons in CC work...

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    They just added 2 additional unlockables: 60k: metal magmite 80k: plastic cultist frame Not sure it'll get that far but I sure could use some additional cultist bodies 🙂

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    The Nickstarter is going well! Almost everything has been unlocked (38k spent so far, with the only remaining unlockable sitting at 42k and 17 days to go) Also, author's blog post about the nickstarter (with link to official US and EU resellers that let you participate from outside the UK...

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    Yeah. Unfortunately it's not one of the unlockable bonuses for the campaign (the full list has been revealed, the other one missing is the one in the bottom left hand corner, which is a shame as he looks the coolest imo. I went all in anyway (3 kits + book) as I'm sure converting a couple...

    New models incoming

    The 2004 movie (with Hugh Jackman), I didn't know it was also a series. The Snowpiercer movie was cool though. Anyway, those new witch hunter miniatures look great! That's the Warhammer I like.

    New models incoming

    I did actually, and the only thing I remember about it is that it was one of the worst movies I've ever seen (and not in a so-bad-it's-good way). I'd rather rewatch Van Helsing!

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    Main nickstarter page with the list of unlockable goals Also, Crew and Mercenary sprues: Not sure what weapons (if any) are supposed to be flame-throwers. Maybe you are suppose to convert a rifle into one using the canister bits?

    Stargrave (a.k.a. Frostgrave in spaaaaaace)

    Bonuses should be metal miniatures among those: Also, I posted the info in the new miniatures thread but here is probably a better place: for those of us in the EU who are wary of brexit-related shenanigans, it seems you can also participate to the Nickstarter using this german site...
