  1. If they did a new pop of Khorne Berzerkers, I'd have lost my marbles... The current kit is ok if you switch out the clown hands for the pistol/CCW parts from the regular CSM kit. I keep a lot of the Berzerker frames around for conversion fodder (currently working on Berzerker Raptors using the winged parts from the Posessed kit). Damon.
  2. Announced today, WHFRPG is coming back, based on 1e & 2e, not the lamentable 3e...! Damon.
  3. BTW, above assumes you can use grenades in overwatch! Damon.
  4. If you look at the stats for the new Uber-marines I posted above, grenades have only a 6" range, well within charge range for a lot of critters (average charge would be 7" on a 2d6). So if all models can toss grenades, it would really punish failed chargers, but OTOH useless against a successful charge...unless you can overwatch fire with grenades (at 3+ BS & a -1 overwatch penalty) at D6 grenades you'd get 3 per model for 15 attacks, half those grenades would hit (7.5) doing an 1 hit each (total 7.5) at S3 (vs T3) for a total of 3.75 wounds that are saveable. If you have a 5+ save then it goes down to 2.475 kills (or 4.95 with a total of 10 tossing models).It does sound pretty powerful (now that my math is correct), but overwhelmingly so? useful against horde armies certainly... Damon.
  5. But OH so satisfying! Damon.
  6. Yes, grenades were added in as a "throwable" weapon in the last edition IIRC, so this continues the trend. Waiting to see if it is a deal where everyone can throw, or just one model.. Damon.
  7. Probably more elite. Thinking something between a regular Marine & a Custodes stat-wise. Stats on the new marines: Damon.
  8. Thousand Sons would be Tzeentch aligned. Damon.
  9. Personally I currently have or collect: 1. Eldar (Saim Hann craftworld...see my avatar pic next to my name, prob around 10K points) 2. Raven Guard Space Marines (easy to paint, cool fluff, not a mainstream Marine faction but still 1st Founding) 3. Necrons (fluff is cool, whether you like vers 1.5 in 3rd ed, or the "new" expanded current fluff) 4. Chaos Space Marines (TWO flavors: CC oriented World Eaters, and more generalist Iron Warriors). I also have a few Grey Knights, Harlequins, Custodes, and Sisters of Battle as allied formations, though the temptation is always there to expand into full-fledged armies... Damon.
  10. Yes, combi weapons have been made worth taking again (assuming the points are good). Damon.
  11. Sisters have been rumored to be getting plastics for several years now, haha! Damon.
  12. Still would like to know more about their mass battle game! I have a box of gnolls I'm sitting on till I find out more about basing, etc. Damon.
  13. Mostly either DBA or Flames of War. The former because I love ancients/medievals & I can build opposing armies easily, and the latter because that is what everyone is playing. I still solo-play (once in a while) Warhammer Ancient Battles. I have Might of Arms (really like these rules, may be OOP) and have Field of Glory. Unfortunately finding non-FoW historical inclined gamers locally is like finding a unicorn in my back yard. Oh they'll long as you supply everything... Damon.
  14. I have not seen a rumor where Blood Angels are getting shafted. I would be interested to see where he got this from. Also the updated map does not get rid of planets or rearrange things at all. But GW IS going to move the story forward, and the new map is part of that. The galaxy is effectively split in half by a massive warp storm. Damon.
  15. I suppose it could be both: However, when I learned of the definitions it was in an SF literature class at Penn State... Damon.
