  1. If you’re looking for motivation, come join us over at the painting table ... we always have more room for new folks! Making a painting goal and then getting community feedback and holding yourself responsible to your own paint work is key to moving forward.

    White Dwarf and AoS

    The issue was that they weren’t just doing a print to digital edition replica ... it was an entirely digitally “fancy” edition. Rotating graphics, scrolling text. And that kind of work on a repeating basis takes serious effort to continue ... and staff to do that work for a job that isn’t visibly providing to the bottom line. It isn’t just a “print to epub3” edition ... it’s a “re-layout magazine and digitally release”... and that kind of work isn’t cost effective.

    White Dwarf and AoS

    Wow! That’s like what they did with necromunda until the most recent compilation release ... 4 books plus the core book ... plus the WD ... and the FAQ and they changed and updated rules as you progressed down the book releases ... and you got to play the “what is the valid rule now?” game ... It’s great! I’ll be able to meet both my fitness and hobby goals for the new year in one fell swoop! Thanks GW! 🤬

    Or ... they could actually give us digital copies .... a straight epub3 doc not the fancy funky digitally formatted “you’ll need an app for that” edition ...

    White Dwarf and AoS

    As someone who has seen them go through multiple versions of White Dwarf I’m ... conflicted. The additional support is great! But .... How many issues of White Dwarf will I need to bring with me when I go to my local FLGS or GW store? The issue for Skirmish ... the issue for whatever additional rules ... pretty soon you need 12 or more issues with you stacked next to you on the table. Wait... now I have to have storage space for said issues because there is no digital edition... So, I need my miniatures ... the digital rules (which may get digital faqs that aren’t complete) or paper book copies, FAQs ... White Dwarf for additional rules ... faqs for those .... a compendium would be nice ...

    The Painting Contract - December 2018

    The end of the 2018 Painting Contracts is upon us... So come and head on over to usher in 2019 with a new one!
  7. Hello folks and welcome to the Painting Contract for January 2019! If you don't know the rules they are: Each month you post an amount of models that you agree to try to paint/build/convert/sculpt. This can be terrain or models for Age Of Sigmar, Blood Bowl, Blitz Bowl, Warhammer Underworlds, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower / Shadows Over Hammerhal, or Gorechosen. On the 28th of the month the contract closes and you can then post your progress images so that they can be critiqued, shared and boasted about. It is a great way to get involved in the community and to get inspiration. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone share their progress! Enjoy!  @Mohojoe & @TheOtherJosh

    What setting would you like for future WHQ releases?

    Any of the other factions than Order adventuring against Order faction units.... (e.g. <Non-Order> vs Deepkin) Alternately, Adversary Cards for all factions. IE Death, Destruction and most of all Order. It would allow you to play any scenario where you have good and bad versions of the same side ... (Fyreslayers vs Fyreslayers) and play put some of the book scenarios.

    Big FAQ?

    Forge world units like that don’t have bases. They’re custom crafted ... btw that model is insanely huge ... and (pretty much) requires almost metal coat hangers to properly pin the parts. From a scale perspective Titans in 40k don’t get based either .. though they need them for stability.

    Blackstone Fortresss

    @Kirjava13 The issue that you’ll run into is that returning to precipice gives you a Legacy card. 12 Legacy cards and you’re done. Based off of my understanding, As long as you’re not “out of action” you can attempt recovery rolls between combats. YMMV... offer void except where prohibited by imperial declaration ...

    SoH: Time pressure

    That depends on what your objective is. In the expansion from White Dwarf from last Dec-Feb going back to town allowed additional side adventures. Triggered by visiting locations in town. Gather enough bits of stuff in those dungeons and open a new link to an entirely new storyline.

    Blackstone Fortresss

    @Thostos I’m not an entirely big fan of the pre-gemmed maps concept. The challenge is that every combat scenario needs to have the map created anew and that takes time to build the map. It’s not just a “draw a card and takes your chances” or a “we kick open the door into the next room”. The map creation/layout process has actually been the largest complaint I’ve seen (pretty much the only complaint). Because the adversaries are “well programmed” there isn’t as much to do by an “adversary controller” as there is in SoH. (Or even ST.)

    Both WHQ Games No Longer on the US Site

    The local store manager suggested that it might be return stocks from the shelf-cleaning they did at local retail. If you’re interested in the game, grab a copy. It has a bunch of potential, and combined with ST gives a lot of options. (And it has a squad of 5 Putrid Blight Kings, 10 Bloodreavers, 10 Kairic Acolytes, 1 Chaos Sorcer and a bunch of heroes.)

    The Painting Contract - December 2018

    RL happens at the worst times ... but you’ve always got a spot here waiting for you at the painting table when you’re able to return. I’m looking forward to seeing your next project!
