  1. I'm game if you are; our biggest obstacle will be scheduling enough time to play in a timely manner. It's going to take 15 games to weed out a winner if we work from a field of 16, and we rarely get in more than 2 games. That's 8 days of play; even once a month ain't gonna cut it, unless we want to crown our victor in April or May of next year.

     

    Still, it would give us a reason to get together and play... :;):

  2. No, actually, I'm pretty sure Mike is 100% correct on that point. The faction books were being produced back in the days where Soon became a punchline, in no smaller part because those books kept getting delayed in their release longer and longer. The overhauls of Warlord (the days of the RAGE chronicles) didn't happen until after the faction book plan was abandoned.

     

    It's nice to see the game being talked about, even if it is mostly an obituary.

  3. You mean like this? 12 models, nothing on a standard sized base. And it's not just playable; it can win games, and win them ugly in the right hands.

     

    Re; lowlylowly's query about SoBH vs. Warlord... there are some similarities in general game play between the two (i.e. the Warlords and big Solos are much like the high-end Leader models), and the lower stat values and fewer damage tracks for rank and file are similar to models with higher Quality scores, but otherwise the game play is quite different, as is the overall feel of the battlefield. Warlord's longer ranges and higher Movement values make playing the game on a larger playing field a necessity, and the game feels like it is operating on a larger scale because of it.

     

    On the whole, I think I like the RAGE mechanics better, but I've been having more fun playing ShadowSea and DeepWars lately (both of which run off the SoBH engine).

  4. Duke Gerrard had a spell cast upon him allowing him to gain Flying as a free action. He then wished to Summon a model (the Angel) as a free action onto the table (using his faction ability I believe). Is this permissible? Also, the troop had already conducted Melee Fight Actions this turn, is the Angel still eligible to conduct a Melee Fight Action once summoned (as it was summoned into b2b contact)?

     

    WolfLord addressed the part regarding Free Actions, so I have nothing to add there other than he is correct. However, regarding the actions a summoned model may take on the round they are summoned: no, Uriel would not be able to conduct a Fight action if the rest of the troop had already done so. Although Uriel remains a solitaire, he acts with the troop he was summoned by for the turn. And although the Summoned SA text does say that summoned models may take any one Action after being placed on the board, that action cannot violate the basic mechanics of the game - it only means that summoned models are not restricted to just movement actions. So, in your given example, not only could Uriel not conduct a Fight action (even if summoned into B2B), he would also be unable to conduct a Spellcast action either (as prior to summoning Uriel, a spell was cast on Duke Gerard). So, while Uriel is permitted to take any one Action, the sequence of events in this activation have left him with little more than a Move or Charge as his choices (in most circumstances).

  5. Ah yes, there's the dagger to the heart; pics of the swag bag. And yet, I knew better to stay off the forums during the con...

  6. Envirotex Lite is (relatively) easy to get, self-leveling, and does fine on deep pours (I've poured as thick as an inch in one pass, and I'm sure you could go deeper). It does take a fairly long time to set, and tends to "cup" a bit. However, if you come back over the surface with something else to texture it (to look like moving water), then that shouldn't be a problem.

     

    I'm sure others will have additional suggestions. ::):

  7. I don't think I've seen a ReaperCon where you couldn't walk up and find *something* to play at every slot. Yes, some games will fill up in prereg, and many will fill onsite. I guess the best advice is common sense; if you really want to play a particular game, grab your ticket now.

  8. Google image search "water weird". That's what the mini is supposed to represent. That's probably what is represented on the cover of that book as well. so in a roundabout way, I guess the answer is: sort of. They didn't use that for the concept art, but it is the same creature.

  9. This has been fixed. The items were in the cart, but not able to display properly due to a typo in the database which has been corrected. 

     

    You are awesome, sir. I checked my itinerary, and I see the game ticket now.

  10. Bryan, also FYI, I added a game, completed the "purchase", and it is not appearing on my itinerary. I've even logged out and back in; still nada. I did get the confirmation email for it, so maybe this is another one of the back-end vs. front-end issues.
