  1. Called it. Bryon, did they tell you beforehand that you didn't have to mass-ship the Canuck orders this time, and change their minds(?) when the event came?
  2. If it's that big a problem, you might want to look into getting one of these: Don't get me wrong, it's ABSOLUTELY the wrong tool for a lot of jobs, and it's hard on the thumb, but it would hopefully cut down on your incidents. My work loves them (perhaps more than they should, they're trying to ban everything else. You cannot cut three inches of semi-rigid insulation with them without making an absolute mess of the job.) I'll verify they work as advertised on packing tape and cardboard just fine, though.
  3. My theory is that the shipper pulled another bait and switch on reaper, like last time. Anyone remember this update? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-ii-the-return-of-mr-bones/posts/1134219 S#!t happens. This time it's happening in my favor, so my sympathies go out to those of you who it's affecting negatively. Ladystorm - you'd actually get in that much trouble for communicating? Is what's happening really that sensitive?
  4. Got my shipping notice; not happy it's UPS, I'd prefer USPS or fedex for being (Almost certainly) cheaper once you factor in duty. I'll survive, though. wonder if we should start a new thread for 'got my notice' bragging EDIT ; I'm canadian. re-edit - I'm wave one.
  5. I'm willing to bet that the increase in stats is going to be cheaper in points (If not cash) that it should be. Gotta sell those kits to people who have entire chapters already.
  6. funded

    Backed. One of the great games I wish I could find a group to play.
  7. Pre-launch

    I'd be good for a moderns game, but not a second fantasy one.
  8. Funded

    got the battlefield set. might get additional fences and walls. and maybe more walls. useful for large buildings, dungeons, battlefields, pretty much everything tabletop.
  9. Fantasy. Multiple factions removed in the conversion to AOS. My complaint with the pricing isn't for the basic units. GW has always priced those decently, with a few exceptions. making them cheaper just makes the bait nicer. It's the specialist units, like the bloodcrushers and centurions. Once you've been hooked, they pull a pricing switch on you.
  10. Pre-launch

    I've got enough dragons and giant showpieces that I think I'll be able to keep from pledging most of those (With the exception of baba yaga's house, that's nice terrain.
  11. I ... Don't think that's what likely happened. if you type in 3000, what you get is 2700/300/600. you probably spent the 2700, the spent the 300 flexible points
  12. 10% of your points may be spent on upgrades. In a 2000 point force, 1800 have to be spent on unit and 200 could be spent on either upgrades or units. That's your fixed and flexible. In addition, you get 20% of your forces value in 'free' upgrades. For a 2000 point force, that would be 400 points of upgrades *only*. That's your bonus.
  13. I'm seriously unlikely to get back into 40k. bloodbowl, some of their skirmish stuff, certainly. But a large army? not a chance. Not at the cost of some of their 'pay to win' units. I dropped GW during the finecast debacle. Telling us how much they'd save, then asking us to eat a 30-50% price increase just went down the wrong way. I understand fixed costs, and that low-sales items will be more expensive than high-sales basic troops. I understand that they have to be modeled, the molds made, and that the people casting them deserve a decent wage. no complaints. (Although GW apparently doesn't think the people selling them deserve above minimum wage, but that's another story) But I cannot make myself believe that the prices for some of the things out there are what they should be. that the light titans should be well over $100. That aircraft should be barely cheaper when I see a dozen or more of them on a table at the monthly gaming get together. When the players I talk to say that they need them to stand a chance of winning at a casual level. Show me the breakdown of the cost of the showpieces, and you might get me back into 40k, as opposed to a low-model-count skirmish game. I can't make myself believe that a centurian or bloodcrusher unit should be so absurdly expensive. That I'm not being painfully gouged for everything but my troops choices. The models are beautiful, but so is ma'al Drakar; ma'al is probably going to sell a lot less (and therefore have a much higher fixed per model), is just as big, but still manages to have a comparable price. and I didn't *have* to buy it to *not lose* ----- I know a guy who says that end of times has made age of sigmar what it always should have been.
  14. I can't think of a board game or RPG in existence that would net in that much money for more than a year after release, bar maybe monopoly (ew).
  15. are you talking about a mis-execution of the release, or the rules? because while the ruleset is hardly necromunda, it doesn't look like a bad product to me. I watched a friend play 'aliens' with a trio of tyranid warriors; the selection of kill teams is limited, but definitely distinct and thematic. I'm not likely to got back into 40k (I got out during the start of the finecast debacle) but shadow war is a decent limited campaign system. not quite frostgrave, similar to blood bowl.
