    What's on your mind?

    There's a pronunciation thread around here somewhere where we delved into various GW words and how people were pronouncing them. Edit: Here it is, quite a fun thread with lots of regional input. A lot of variation around amongst those of us whose game info was just read in WD or word of mouth...

    NCE Necromunda Community Edition

    It's one of those anachronisms that crops up in the Necromunda - and wider 40k - lore. Lasguns are second only to hydrogen and hands to hold them in the 40k universe. They have been around for millennea, they are supremely reliable, easy to reload/recharge, and available in their countless...

    Getting some real metal guild-credit tokens made - anyone interested?

    Even a 1 credit coin is triangular in ye olde lore, not sure about these days. I'm pretty sure GW themselves even made credit coins at some point in the past. Hemawr's head on one side, Aquila on the other. I think somewhere in the lore there's a reference to there being no sub-unit of one...

    Riel Richard aka Blood Donor In Memorium

    A real shame, the table talks were a great read. We'll miss you @Blood Donor!

    Necromunda The Sump: An N17/N18++ venting thread (Beware:grumpy grognards)

    I was super keen when it was mentioned that Gaunts Ghosts were getting a run, even at the price point mentioned, until I saw the models. Gaunt & Bragg are the only two I'd consider to be decent models there, even if Gaunt suffers from foot-on-rock and both are fairly plain. Rawne is...

    The LoTR Thread

    Ditto here. Amazon pales in comparison to Netflix and DIsney+. They didn't help themselves by making their best stuff an additional fee on top of Prime. Disney wasn't great either until they added Star. Too much choice these days for someone who grew up with 3 TV channels and no VCR!

    The LoTR Thread

    I had heard of it but am only cautiously interested - If it's great then great, but I don't have particularly high hopes for it. It would be nice for a different IP to get the tratment for a change, such as Wheel of Time. Speaking of which, a Wheel of Time series is theoretically on its way...

    Feeding the Tribe (Gardening thread - Off Topic)

    I got the broccoli plants from my brother in law, who grows quite a lot of it each year, however he has a river with a duck pupulation at the bottom of his garden and a pond which the local frogs use as a brothel, and both eat slugs with wild abandon. He does have to protect the plants from the...

    Surviving Covid-19 - Yak Support Network!

    Well, my vaccine hangover has finally abated! I've had a headache, stiffness and bouts of nausea since Friday. Seems to be fairly common amongst Pfizer people.

    Feeding the Tribe (Gardening thread - Off Topic)

    So, an update here that actually covers a while. I built a raised bed, planting area of about 9 feet by 3 feet. No point trying to grow anything in the soil here as it's almost entirely compacted clay. The planter is in a sunny spot - it gets sunlight from dawn until about 2pm most of the...

    Surviving Covid-19 - Yak Support Network!

    Flu had no reported deaths for a few months in the UK as well, but that was because anyone dying with Covid symptoms was recorded as Covid death. We had the interesting situation where we were told that flu had been eradicated because everyone was mask wearing and social distancing, whilst...

    Surviving Covid-19 - Yak Support Network!

    I am in Club Pfizer now, currently just with a sore/stiff arm. This one knocked a work colleague for six for three days, hopefully I won't get side effects like that.

    What's on your mind?

    @Troubled Child is correct. The description will probably say somewhere in it to message the seller for a shipping price/invoice. My wife does the same thing for her international items.

    Necromunda: Hired Gun - A Necromunda FPS

    Pinning is effectivley the old Gears of War "take cover to heal" system isn't it? I think that's out of vogue with them young vidja-game developers. Eeee when I were a lad, y' had ti pick up them "health packs". Sometimes they came in Small and Large, and if y' were lucky, ye'd find one near...

    New models incoming

    So what you're saying is they're a common weapon in Newcromunda, available from Dishonest Dave's Discount Destructive Devices, Disco & Diner?

    FINISH YOUR STUFF CHALLENGE 2021

    I may have failed April. And May. I did paint a Welsh flag on the roof of a matchbox mini cooper, as my son wanted one with a dragon on it. That is all.

    I don't know yet, it's most likely to be Astra Zenica or Pfizer round here going by what family & colleagues have had.

    Necromunda The Spire: An N17/N18 Praising Thread

    It's a new extra annoying way they've realised they can stoke ire - releasing in a cheaper, better format the same thing they've released previously in difficult to use and expensive resin :ROFLMAO: Like a better version of the phone you JUST bought going on sale the week after you got yours...

    Surviving Covid-19 - Yak Support Network!

    Got my vaccination letter through today. I swear I'm only 25... plus VAT... and postage. They're getting round to us kids now! I have had covid (mild symptoms), but I guess I'll get microchipped anyway - it'll help the vets find my owner when I get lost coming home from the pub.

    NCE Necromunda Community Edition

    Enforcers is one of those things that NCE didn't really nail down, what with them being a Fanatic expansion rather than an "official" ruleset. I think the Tools will be using the ORB version if anything - though I admit I haven't ever used them to build an enforcer gang. @Malo will be able to...
