    GW is asking for advice on GHB 2019

    Personally, I would just like to see the next GHB promote and encourage small point games along with the normal 2000 points. Would also like to see warbands get a revised and updated ruleset, but I have a feeling that will be a separate boxset in 2019.

    AoS 2 - Moonclan Discussion

    It would be wonderful if GW released a new sprue with Moonclan specific bits to use with the arachnarok spider.

  8. Welcome to Dice Dojo's Path to glory campaign. If your starting out in AOS or if your a returning veteran, this slow grow campaign will allow all of us to get into the moral realms and duke it out for glory!Age of Sigmars official day will be shared with Warhammer 40,000's day of Wednesday after 5:00 PM, however don't be afraid to play games outside our night at any location that your comfortable with. Just make sure you log your games with the game master.We strongly recommend getting the Age of Sigmar main rule book, the battletome for your selected army, for Path to glory the General's handbook isn't required but is recommended.Our Path to Glory campign will last for 3 months with new scenarios and missions each week.The first couple of weeks will focus on learning Age of Sigmar in basic open play scenerios with just the bare rules, but as the campaign grows and peoples collections increase, more rules, scenarios and and fun will be added.Another focus that this campaign will be the hobby aspect. I (Tyler LaRiviere) will personally invest into an interesting and worthwhile prize for the winner of the hobby. Link to the event can be found here.
  9. Picked mine up today. Beautiful model. Wish it would have been a hero considering the cost ($35 usd), but I will use it as a KoS or something.

  14. I also find the % faction/meta to be the more interesting aspect of these metrics. At a minimum, they can be useful for picking factions if you want to avoid being just another <<insert faction>> player. I don't know if much more can be inferred from them since army selection has too many variables to draw any conclusions about competitive worth. Still, I do love the data because it makes for fun discussions and debates. Thanks to the folks that have been gathering and crunching the numbers. On a personal note, I decided to print a copy of faction breakdown and am going to highlight the factions I am interested in playing. Curious to see if I can discern anything about myself and my current hobby goals. May also help with some future plans.
  15. It is a difficult question to answer, and one that doesn't have a single answer. Speaking for myself, the challenge is a matter of expectations and where the hobby falls within the scope of life. I don't view competition-focused as toxic. I do however see it as a different set of values from my own. I would love to compete, but I recognize that being able to do so requires an investment that I don't wish to make at this point in my life. I like to use the analogy of playing basketball. I love playing basketball in the Dad's league because the other players in the league are at a similar level as myself in terms of priorities and skills. Yes, sometimes we get someone who is outside are target "audience", but generally speaking everyone is on the same page. Now, if I was asked if I wanted to play in the semi-pro league, I would likely decline because I am a step slower and cannot practice 3-5 days per week. Its not that I don't enjoy the game or desire to compete, I just don't wish to compete at the same level as players in the semi-pro league. When some people throw around toxic, or in my case harass my more competitive friends, its coming from the perspective that we cannot compete with them but still want to participate. Since there is a gap in desired outcomes, some people tend to resort to name calling in an effort to get the other party to move closure to what they want (United States politics anyone). I need to disagree with your point. The job of a TO is to organize and keep things moving forward over the event. If someone wishes to drop after the first day and has done the proper courtesy of notifying the TO in a timely fashion, that is not poor sportsmanship. As a former TO, I never had an issue with someone dropping after the first day if they are not enjoying themselves. Time is too precious to be wasted on being miserable at something that is ultimately intended to bring joy. I also prefer not to "force" them to play and risk the chance that their negativity will impact other players on the second day. What you are describing is more of a complete failure by both parties to handle the situation properly.
