  1. I'm not sure people getting upset by judges' rulings is an issue in the long term. People in sports complain about referee / umpire decisions constantly. Ultimately, it doesn't mar sports. And anyone found cheating is banned, permanently. Can't see any argument against that.
  2. This sounds amazing @Ben! I was expecting tweaks to the rankings system. Instead, we get something momentous! I think competition to make the Masters may be a little hotter this year!
  3. Some really interesting points. I'll have a proper read and reply in a bit. I've just picked the kids up from school so I've only been able to skim read. You're right though, this definitely seems a better forum than Twitter. Much easier to put forward a balanced argument.
  4. Sadly, I think you're fighting a losing battle with this post @Ben. Trying to change people's internet behaviour is a thankless task. In reality, when the ***** are posting, it's the well-meaning efforts to make them see things differently that often lead directly to arguments. We had this a year ago when I was a mod on here. The drive to persuade people to transform into different people only kicked up a worse storm. If people are ***** asking them politely not to be ***** isn't going to make a difference. This thread, as with the last one, will turn into a cyclical discussion about where negativity ends and discussion begins, and a forum for 'martyrs'. The solution? If you want a forum for a certain kind of person (which is what you're saying. You can't change people) you have to be ruthless. Over on the Maggotkin of Nurgle Facebook Group we've just removed the *****. If you break the rules, you're out. We don't have a warning system because: a) People don't change. If they break the rules once they'll do it again. b) If you allow everyone to break the rules once, you've got potentially thousands of negative / abusive posts before you kick anyone. Every negative post causes nice folks to slip away unseen, never to return. Trying to keep track of everyone who has broken the rules, x number of times, is a huge task and only allows the ***** elbow room. The 'one strike and you're out' policy has meant the Maggotkin Facebook Group is nearly six months old has been almost completely free of arguments and trolling the whole time. One or two people lose access but hundreds or thousands of others have a safe place to play. I was one of the most active users on this forum for the first year or so of its existence but my TGA usage dropped right off when the atmosphere here changed. It'd be great to see it improve. Sadly, this isn't going to happen if you just ask nicely. We've been here before - again and again, since the internet began. Steve.
  5. I'd also like to know this. Dunno if I'd have to bring my Tzeentch. Nurgle may not be painted by then.
  6. No harm in having more than one. I think the buzz around the new book justifies it. To be honest though, that one seemed to be a bit lifeless. The new one has nearly twice the number of members already - there was obviously a demand for it. We're gonna be pretty active with the upkeep, make sure there's stuff going on and it doesn't fall into ruin. Painting comp started today! ??
  7. First monthly painting competition in now underway on the Maggotkin of Nurgle Facebook group. January is the Plaguebearer! https://www.facebook.com/groups/140870663267190/permalink/141485729872350/
  8. New 'Maggotkin of Nurgle' Facebook group for those of you who can't get enough Nurgle chatter. Come and share your progress with the new releases. https://www.facebook.com/groups/140870663267190
  9. The implication at the Blood and Glory seminar was that each of the Grand Alliances were getting their hero model - but that was it. That's how I took it, anyway.
  10. Version 1.0.0


    This file is a PDF of the basic rules for running a hex map AoS campaign. The rules are deliberately 'loose' to allow you to play any type of AoS game (matched play, Path to Glory, Skirmish, etc.) within the same campaign. I'm running the first Realmwar at my local club, Newcastle Warlords, from January so it'll get extensive playtesting then. I'll update the file if we find any issues. I'll also add 'Global Events' and 'Special Hexes' when we've come up with some cool ideas. Please enjoy and, if you use these rules, let me know what you think. Feedback would be massively appreciated! Thanks, Steve.
  11. Yeah. They'll definitely get a wound increase. We couldn't have a LoC with more wounds than a GUO! I imagine it'll get an additional tweak or two on top of that.
  12. I agree. Skyfires etc are great, but splitting horrors are the best unit Tzeentch have. If you position your starting horrors to effectively protect and bubble wrap key units, you can completely control the game. Splitting horrors won me two of three games at the Howling (I talked about it on Tales of Sigmar Episode 22 ?). Opponents with combat heavy lists really struggle to cope because they can't shoot them off in advance.
  13. It says 'all instances'. That'll cover allies. I think it's time to put this debate to bed.
