    @SuboptimusPrime I feel your pain. It's been insanely hard lately to get my gaming group together for anything. The last game I played was two months ago with one friend (Aeronautica Imperialis in case you were wondering). In the past year I've only played four games with only two people from...

    Skirmish Game Design - An Ongoing, Open Discussion - 8/6 Gaming Aids

    As someone who has been a game designer, definitely pre-measure. It just eliminates so many issues and keeps the game moving more smoothly. If you take "real life" examples, any decently skilled combatant is going to be able to judge distance to know "that guy is about this far away" or "I can...

    Frostgrave

    @Deckard_2049 The rules are fun and simple. The only issue people have (myself a bit also) is that the use of a D20 to resolve things is a bit swingy. McCullough did address that in his newest game The Silver Bayonet by using 2D10 instead. It'd be an easy mod if you find it the wild dice results...

    Frostgrave

    I'm of a like mind on Blood Legacy. I much prefer lower level characters in every game I've played as I think it's more challenging when you don't have the Wish spell/+5 Vorpal Sword/BFG/etc. I'm also not a huge fan of the whole character become a vampire bit. I'm looking forward to seeing...

    Frostgrave

    So after going all in on Frostgrave last year I FINALLY was able to sit down and play a game with one of my friends who also did a deep dive into it. My Elementalist and band vs his Necromancer and minions. It was just a straight up "smash & grab" scenario with both warbands trying get as much...

    Not much in the previews appeals to me other than the new Kill Team box. As a retired Navy veteran I'm rather liking the Imperial Navy boarding team (and FYI, boarding actions in real life SUCK!). With their inclusion here's hoping they do a White Dwarf article for the Elucidian Starstriders...

    Elucidian Starstriders?

    With the next Kill Team set including Imperial Navy boarders perhaps we will see the Starstriders in Kill Team. It wouldn't be too difficult - even for GW 😛 - to write up a White Dwarf article for them. Here's hoping anyway.

    The Silver Bayonet

    I also have the rulebook and first wave of minis. Unfortunately life has been throwing me into the Sump lately so I haven't been able to play ANY game since about March, and haven't picked up a paint brush since April-ish. I have read through the rules and as I've played McCullough's other...

    What's on your mind?

    @spafe So far so good. Still the odd, "That tastes weird" moment though. @Punktaku .. possibly, and probably considering what a sh**show the wedding was.

    What's on your mind?

    Well, June has sucked. This whole month has been in the crapper from Memorial Day weekend until now. Drove five hours Memorial Day weekend to go to my nieces wedding that tuned out.. awful. Got COVID (BAD case) the following week and was down for about 10 days. Full range of symptoms. 102°...

    Necromunda The Sump: General hobby venting thread (Beware:grumpy grognards)

    IMO this sort of thing is ridiculous and merely some troll(s) looking for attention. Anyone familiar with the setting KNOWS that it's a dystopian fascist totalitarian misogynist xenophobic empire. And the writing should reflect that to impact the reader. There are no rainbows in the Grimdark...

    I just don't like the way the Iron Kin look. Something about them just makes them look.. silly. Like they were designed by some kid (although I have seen kids come up with better ideas than GW at times). Not a fan. The new Cadians however I'm a HUGE fan of what they've done. The Sentinel looks...

    Armada

    @Punktaku I wish I could but I've got the headache, runny nose, cough, chills, body aches and a pretty steady 101° fever. Otherwise I would be working on my pile. Thanks very much for your well wishes.

    Armada

    Yeah.. so much for my painting schedule. May has been a disaster and June isn't starting out too well. My wife and I have been dealing with my 98 year old mother in law's declining mental and physical health along with several financial issues associated with it. We finally get it all worked out...

    Harumph, harumph, harumph! You there, give the Governor a Harumph! Ahhh.. social media. And I thought the Sump was a wretched hive of scum and villainy. :LOL: The ONLY reason I have Facebook is to keep connected with a very few friends that use it, along with a few FLGS's who post their...

    Mantic isn't "bad" per se, but yeah, they really don't compare to other companies products. I play Armada (some of you may have seen my posts elsewhere in the Forum) which I greatly enjoy. The ship minis are fine but I'm not impressed with their packaging or customer service, which you can check...

    Necromunda The Sump: General hobby venting thread (Beware:grumpy grognards)

    Thanks for the support gang. But I think that's more than enough positivity in The Sump for now. We do have a reputation to uphold here. 🤣

    @MusingWarboss I may just do that. I played and greatly enjoyed the original way back when. I'll take it under serious consideration.
