    That would be hugely appreciated. Im based in Düsseldorf, Germany.

    I hope you don't mind the OT. but I was hoping to find someone who might be willing to send me a Gordrakk head for my Megaboss conversion. I'd cover shipping and put a few bucks on top for your help, of course

    You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but I've yet to see evidence for it. If it's just a gut feeling or the experience you've made in the past, fair enough, but this whole "diversity is better" argument is often presented as a non-arguable fact, when it's actually not. I believe that the sooner we stop putting people into categories, be it gender, sexual preference, ethnicity, warhammer faction of choice (even though we might have to make an exception for that) the better.

    Good point. The obvious solution is to acknowledge that neither diversity nor homogenity are inherently good or bad. What makes communities good are good people, no matter their gender or ethnicity.

    Because it's a major political/social trend to advocate diversity and change your product/message/company structure accordingly. Does it make much sense from an economic perspective? I'm not sure, but at least they won't get harassed for lack of diversity in their product line.

    I've had great experiences with magnetized bases in combination with this kind of baking tray: https://www.amazon.de/TOP-STAR-253806-antihaftbeschichtete-Transporthaube/dp/B004PGL4DC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1529322429&sr=8-3&keywords=backblech+mit+deckel It's not suitable for large models, but for infantry it's the best solution I've seen so far.

    I agree with most of what you said. Objectification is a thing, but there is also genuine attraction and making use of that. Good looking people will be chosen as presenters because they garner more attention, which I think is a primal instinct and not a fault of society.

    Why does she have to be one or the other? She is both an attempt to get more girls into the hobby and eye candy at the same time. Having a beautiful young woman present a new product is pretty much standard practice in many industries and the fact that Becca Scott is already an established personality within the tabletop gaming sphere makes her a perfect fit. When it comes to women and their interest in wargaming, their barrier of entry can be many things, first and foremost the tendency for these games to focus on inherently masculine qualities. This is to be expected - we can't change the fact that war has been predominately waged by men for all of our history, nor can we change the fact that men and women tend to have different fields of interest. Now, in a fictional setting where eternal war is the entire premise, masculine features will be in the foreground and thus most little girls are probably not interested in pursuing that kind of hobby. Femcasts and things like hiring Becca will do some legwork in mitigating these problems, giving girls characters to identfy better with and making it "ok" for girls to like what has been considered a hobby for boys. I don't expect a huge female influx into the hobby because of its aforementioned strictly masculine qualities, but I can totally see those girls/mothers who were on the fence about the hobby being swayed by the new approach, which is a good thing in my book.

    I see expect a smooth transition into AoS 2.0, especially when it comes to our magic game. - Weirdnobs have strong spells and with a 40 points Balewind Vortex they can use them much more efficiently. Weirdfist has also become cheaper as well as our Ardboyz, so 2 x 20 Ardboys will cost 80 points less than before and reliably provide the Weirdnob with his full +2 buff. - Prismatic palisade is a nice way to deny the enemy the opportunity to harm our key units. - Look out Sir will help keeping our characters alive - Gruntas are still 140 points and as good as ever - Orruk Banner Warboss + Megaboss on foot are great uses for Command points, as well as the new generic ones. - The realm specific artefacts can bolster our key Characters even further: Ghur's Gryph Feather Charm is a nice on the Weirdnob, making him harder to kill. Aqshy's ThermalriderCloak on a foot Megaboss is a dream come true (8" Movement and fly) All in all things don't look to bad I'd say.

    Looking for Gordrakk's head

    Hello everyone, I'm looking to get my hands on the head of mighty Gordrakk for my Megaboss on foot. Since I'm based in Germany, sellers from Europe are preferable to keep shipping costs down. Looking forward to your responses!

    The new Prismatic Palisade is another option to mitigate incoming fire.

    Every round they spend shooting at your chaff is a favourable round for you.

    I think allies are no longer restricted by points but amount of units in 2.0. 1 Allied unit for every 4 normal units was the rate, iirc.
