  1. I just found out about this game and have been scouring these forums. I've read many a battle report and army list these past few days. I've been playing with the army creator too. I've got a large amount of minis, mostly prepaints from D&D or Mage Knight. I love reaper's scultps, thought I haven't painted any of the bones I got from the first kickstarter. Anyway, i was wondering if there were any Warlord players inteh Portland/Vancouver area? I usually see 40k and Hordes players at my FLGS, Rainy Day Games, but thought I'd throw out a line. I'm going to try to get my friends into Warlord, but sometimes the mini games don't go over very well. Last time we tried Song of Blades and Heroes, and one of our group broke it pretty quickly. Speaking of which, how well do you guys think Warlord takes to players who like to break games? I know you can't create your own units, I think that should help a lot. I'm encouraged by so many of the comments after battle reports being "I can't believe how balanced this game is, and how many armies are viable. You never know what's going to happen until the end of the game!" That's what I've been looking for.
  2. Been thinking about ways to play Warlord, even though there's no one around my area. I was wondering if anyone had considered playign Warlord using a virtual tabletop like Maptools? I have very limited experience with maptools, but it looks like you can program a framework that will make playing a game like Warlord much easier. In case you've never used Maptools or other VTs, they aren't video games. They are computer programs that allow you to play tabletop games by simulating dice, terrain, tokens, and measurements. Code exists in each token and other bit in the game, so the barebones interface can be molded to fit your desired game. In Maptools, you could turn off the grid and go with distance-based movement, then just use the dice and your paper army lists to play. Or you could program it so the interface would show things like character stats, status effects, and stuff like that. The game would not be automated, so you wouldn't be able to play without a rulebook. It would be very similar to the Army Creator's level of detail, where you can see all the stats but without the book you don't know exactly what they do. Still, I'd like to talk to whoever's in charge of Warlord and ask permission before working on a Maptools framework that would allow online Warlord play.

    Struggling Game Shop

    There is a game shop in Winfield, KS that is struggling. It brings in just enough profit to pay bills, and keep merchandise of the shelves. The only thing the shop sells right now, besides a few board games and comics, is Magic: The Gathering cards. Technically, they also sell Warhammer goodies. The people who volunteer to run the shop know that I'm Facebook friends with a few people who work at Reaper Miniatures, and asked me to talk to you guys about getting some Reaper merchandise at the store. Specifically, Warlord and CAV stuff. However, I have no idea who I should talk to about that. It's the only game shop in the entire county, and I'd hate to see it go by the wayside. Any help?
  4. This will be another long tale, fraught with peril, passion, and whisky. Let's start with a pic: Here's a Bathalian Centurion for my Darkspawn army, with his hands in the air like he just don't care. I got on a tear of painting with my super Cthulhu-ey force, and fought some great battles with it. Well, forum member wildbill reads my posts, and being a fellow Warlord player and enthusiast, drafts an army list of Dwarves for my friend Dalton to play against my super cool, nearly finished painting, jumping up and down that I finished anything force. So the table is readied: This is some terrain from GF9 Battlefield in a box, Mesa, and Crystals, a trophy crystal I looted from the trash at the office, and to really drive home the Cthulhu, a jellyfish in a crystal in the middle of the table. My first sin, pride. My second sin: So my force is on the table: Dalton's dwarf force, with many proxies and a large, unassembled, unpainted Stone Spirit in the middle deploys his line across the board. Here we are perched at the end of the first turn of movement. The damanable Griffon is into my Fodder, and I'm already sweating bullets. Here is what happened later, with my reporting to follow. I'll give the play by play in a little while, I'm clocking back in to work from lunch, but it will happen.

    A Leopard Pixie for LeopardPixie

    When I drew LeopardPixie's name for the mini exchange, I knew I had to do something that would do honor to her name. This was the result:

    Steele Hearts and Steel Blades

    I wanted to do a week without any Mechs, but I just couldn't. This beautiful Berserker repose that Mr Balk did for me was calling my name. I decided to do this piece in the colors of a merc unit from an early campaign in my BT days, the Steele Hearts. Also this week, my Nefsokar army gains a few new members, and my Pathfinder group finally gets their characters. As always, thoughts, opinions, and thrown pottery welcome.

    Ludo's Workbench

    Colonel Kane requested that I put up my CAV stuff up ASAP so it's going first. (From left to right:) Dictator-B, Vanquisher, Tiamat, Weasel, and Ronin Attempting to do some rusting on the Ronin. Need to do the detail and touch up the rest. Weasel next to some Infinity terrain I'm painting for The Covenant FLGS. Yes I realize I inadvertently made Iron Man with my paint scheme. Vaquisher hunting prey. I normally won't play with partially painted figs (encourages me to not stall) but I had some itch left from ReaperCon. Wyvern down! Linkinatutu made the mistake of running his wyvern ahead of support fire and it got wreaked by missile salvos. We house ruled that since the model could fit on the catwalk it was legal terrain but it was rough due to the extra effort to keep it from toppling off.

    I love her most of all for not making me glue an arm/leg/head or having to use sculpting putty anywhere.

    Warlord 1st to 2nd

    So while perusing my FLGS on my extended lunch break today, I came across a discounted copy of the Warlord Starter Box (1st edition, [2nd printing, I think] w/ a copy of the 2005 CW! Side note, I love the rough feel of the paper in this CW, as opposed to the glossy pages in the newer ones). So, I picked it up (it didn't indicate it was 1st edition when I bought it, though I had an inkling it was old...), and am wondering how significant the differences are in the rules between 1st and 2nd; and also if there is an errata sheet or update PDF somewhere. SO, yeah! Now I have a Warlord rulebook, even if it is out of date. I can't wait to play! (OCD insists I paint all figs before fielding them. And paint them well...) -Dave

    Acacia, Ivy Crown Sergeant (14545)

    Finished up Acacia today, hoping to get some more Warlord stuff painted up soon to entice friends into playing. Just a tabletop job for the most part, nothing fancy. I did use some Italian herbs as leaf litter on her base though, and now she kind of smells like pizza. C&C welcome!
  11. Sentinel and I played a game or Warlord on his recent trip to our town. I led off with my contingent of Battle Nuns and Hospitalers. Sentinel fired off his ranged weapons. The hurting begins! Hiding behind the terrain! Battle is joined: My spell caster summoned my guardian beast and wiped out some of his heavies: Captain America should be ashamed of himself! Beating up on a nun? You can see how my luck was running! My powers included the ability to summon a spirit warrior when a non soldier model in the enemy army dies. I put out an unpainted fig to help keep the "spirit" of the thing ;) I got a second spirit during the midgame: I didn't manage to kill off enough of his army and they ganged up on my last remaining piece. My guardian beast: I didn't get to use my healing magic except once during the game. So much damage was done the figures died before I got a chance to heal them. Sentinel won his second game that evening. Pretty good for a first time player!

    Arthrand Nightblade 14553

    My latest foray into building a tabletop army worthy of Lothlorien (yes, I Have a slight thing for Tolkien elves, and elves in general) I went with a fairly basic look for this guy. grey cloak to blend in, blue tabard to show a bit of elven 'class' and a very simple base As always, please comment and critique. Especially if you see something you feel I should work on for the next mini.
  13. Because of the convergence of fields I wasn't sure where I'd get the best response. I chose CP&T as the most relevant... As a Bones supporter I'm getting http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/almaran/sku-down/03292 which is an almost perfect match for my character. Except it's human... and wingless. My paladin is a Scion of Arkhosia so I need wings and a head swap. I don't want to go crazy and get the Dragonman Conversion Kit just for 2 pieces... I can use the head from the Dragonman Warrior I'm already getting then buy a pair of wings. So this is where I ask for your help. Will metal wings unbalance the Bonesium mini ? Suggestions to prevent/counter-act if they will ? Any Reptus Warlord players with info on the stability of the winged models ? Any recommendations of which wings would be the best fit ? The pictures in the gallery while accurate, aren't the most helpful for me.

    Warlord Rising novel

    I just finished reading Warlord Rising by Michales Joy and man, was it a fun read. I admit it's not the deepest fantasy novel I've ever read, but if you love Warlord and want to delve into an adventure in that setting I highly recommend the book. The author incorporates all 10 Taltos factions and even hints at some of the factions from Northern Adon. I a real sucker for fluff and you really get to see the relationships the factions have with each other. I think I might even start a Savage Worlds campaign in the Taltos setting. Has anyone else read the book and what are your thoughts without giving any spoilers out for those who might want to pick it up.
  15. This Saturday, May 11th we are have a BONES swap meet, after the meet there will be a game of King of the Hill. for those wanting to participate the details and rules are below. Each player will control one 350 point troop. Players may bring their own troop or use one of the ones we will have on hand. The board will be a 4x4 table with a hill in the center. On the hill is a 3 inch circle. The object is to be the player with the most damage tracks in the circle at the end of the turn. For Example: Player one has 3 goblin models with one damage track each and Player 2 has DeathSleet with 2 wounds. Player one would have 3 damage tracks while Player 2 would have 4. Player 2 would have control of the hill. If a player loses all the models in his troop all the players models re spawn at the bottom of the hill at the start of the next turn. The game will start at 3:00 and go until 6:00 or until we get tired of running up the hill. Trophies will be given to the player that holds the hill for the most turns and the player with the most kills. The store details are: Heroes Haven Games & collectibles 1277 Lexington Ave., Mansfield, Ohio 44907 https://www.facebook...eam&viewer_id=0 and the original swap meet thread is here: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49002-bones-swap-meet-may-11th-mansfield-oh/ Hope to see you there!

    ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament

    The ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament will be a 3 round tourney, with each round lasting approx 105 minutes (1 hour 45 minutes). Each player will bring a single 1000 point army list and play that same army list for all three rounds. Players will be allowed to choose faction doctrines to be in affect before the start of each round. The ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament will be held at the Hotel this year. Some people know that from a different thread, but I am restating it for those that missed this information. Subject to change based on Reaper's needs, the start times (that means deployment time) for each round are currently set at... Round 1: 9 am - 11 am Round 2: 11 am - 1 pm Round 3: 2 pm - 4 pm This schedule allows players to get in their three rounds and still be able to go back and enjoy some time over at the main Reaper campus or other offerings at the hotel. We know that a majority of people are attending to take painting and sculpting classes, we know that even with having the earlier start time for the tourney it will still conflict with some class times. We try our best to make the tournament available to everyone by offering it twice. That is to say, there will be a tournament on Friday, and a tournament on Saturday. You can choose which day to participate. But, you must be able to participate in all three rounds on the day that you choose. At this time, a maximum of 12 people can register per day on a first come first served basis for the tourney for a total of 24 available slots. Consider this thread as the sign up sheet to reserve your spot in the tournament. I will update the list below as people sign up. In the spirit of a Dark Circus theme, the style of the tournament this year will be a little different than prior years. Instead of having 3 different known scenarios that each player will play, this year, each round of the tourney will be a straight up kill them all to the last man standing battle. But, of course we will be adding some random circus tricks and traps that also must be accomplished along the way. These items will be random in each game based on a flip of the card, roll of the dice, etc... You might have the enemy right where you want them, lined up in your sites, when the next flipped card gives you 1 turn to accomplish something an unrelated goal in order to earn a victory point. How you are able to handle the commands of the card flips and still destroy your enemy will determine how well you do in the tourney. Tournament specific rules for the ReaperCon 2013 Warlord Tournament: 1) All models using the Swift Attack ability must have space to make base to base contact with the enemy model they wish to attack on their action. 2) When using the Summoned (Demon) SA granted by the Gate ability of the Demonic Conclave doctrine for the Darkspawn faction, demons summoned in this manner must be of equal or lesser point value than the summoning model. 3) Sir Broderick, Justicar is allowed to lead Justicar soldiers. 4) The abilities gained by the Howl portion of the Koborlas "Call of the Wild" Doctrine can be used as a free action once per game turn. If you have any questions, post them here and I will do my best to answer them promptly. EDIT 3-27-2013: You must turn in your 1000 point roster before the start of the first game. As an incentive, any player that emails (or private message me here on boards) me their final roster by Wednesday April 17th at 6 pm CST, will receive a bonus personal Victory point objective card that will give you the opportunity to earn an additional victory point that you can use during any one of your games. EDIT 4-1-2013: One thing to note, although there has never been a rule stating that one must field a painted army, last year Ed gave a $75 Reaper credit reward for the best painted army in the tourney. just something to think about....

    Okay to Mix and Match?

    Hi, I'm looking for miniatures for players and NPC's (humans, half-elves, elves, dwarves, halflings, the occasional half-orc). I play both D&D and Pathfinder, on either a 1" grid or a 1" hex. Reaper's Pathfinder miniatures will, obviously, suit my purpose. My question is, can I mix them with miniatures from the warlord set and the bones set? I'm guessing their relative sizes will be correct, because they are all a 25mm scale. But will their bases fit together on the 1" grid/hex? Sorry if this has been asked before, I could not find an answer. Cheers, Barak.

    VA painters/gamers

    A couple of months ago, I threatened mentioned a possible trip to the Norfolk VA area. It was just confirmed that my trip is a go. I'll be there for training but that still leaves me with my evenings and weekend free. As I'm bringing my paints with me I'd like to get together with any local painters and exchange tips/techniques. If anyone is interested in a game of Warlord, I cold bring some of my figures as well. I'll be there from the 15th-23rd or April. Anyone interested in meeting up feel free to reply in this post or or PM me. As a bonus I'll be bringing some of the new Bones with me to paint so you can get a preview if you haven't received your Vampire package yet.

    Fellow Painter Locator

    Hey guys, I have tried searching the forums but must be missing it - is there a thread or something that people can list when they are looking to find fellow painters and players? Thanks!
  24. The past couple of years, the folks at Comicpalooza here in Houston have been trying to get me to bring my dungeon crawl over for their con. Unfortunately, it usually falls around the last weekend of May, which meant that it has usually followed ReaperCon by just a few scant days. Now, Terri is fairly supportive of my gaming, but even I'm not dumb enough to try back-to-back weekends like that. This year, however, ReaperCon is a month earlier, so I agreed to run the crawl at Comicpalooza. It falls over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be running the crawl 3 slots on Saturday (bascially all day long) and 2 slots on Sunday. Since I'm spanning both days, I'll be using my usual format of awarding prizes to the top players from each table, but also keeping track of the overall top scores, convention-long, on a leader-board at the table. The top 3 scores from the entire con will receive additional prizes! So, if you are local, or even just mostly-local, you might want to come check the event (and the con) out. If I get lucky enough to get my Bones shipment before it gets too close to the con, I might even have Kaladrax out on the table, painted. Regardless of whether or not Kaladrax makes it in time, I will still have over 100 painted Reaper miniatures in use on a massive 4'x8' board constructed by yours truly from Hirst Arts casts, and I can guarantee that some of those figures will be painted Bones from the KS. See you there! ~v
  25. I love Razig's army, but was never fond of Razig himself as a sculpt (either version) until last year when Bobby Jackson did his take on him... (I hope to get all the army together and get a shot of them tonight)
