    Yes, this means we're moving towards Euro-friendly shipping for the future. 


    It is our hope, if this goes well, to transition not only kickstarters, but our regular web store to eu-friendly shipping from within the UK. We hope this saves all of our backers more money in the form of fewer customs fees and taxes.


    If I might ask a couple of follow up questions:

    Will you be using the Australian distribution for web store shipping to APAC countries?

    If not, would I be able to choose to ship an order from the UK rather than the US? Shipping tends to be cheaper from there in my experience.

  2. They've said that all models will be usable in the new edition. Given that there are specific minis for Blood Angels, it stands to reason that they will be payable. Plus they feature prominently on the cover of Shadow War: Armageddon which would be an odd choice if BA were slated for squatting.

    Is there any sort of monster that poses as an animal skin rug, then turns back into the living critter to sneak attack? it seems like that would be a D&D thing.

  4. There's an article on the Warhammer Community site about the new stat lines.

    Basically, they're adding a Move stat and dumping the Initiative stat, WS and BS are now straight rolls to hit (3+ or whatever), and a lot of models will be getting more wounds (though powerful weapons will deal multiple wounds worth of damage).

    In addition, as previously rumoured, vehicles will now use the same stat lines but with higher values, as stats will not be limited to a maximum of 10. The will also be damage tables for vehicles that reduce their effectiveness as they take wounds.

  5. They're nice dwarfs, but I have plenty of plastic dwarfs from GW, Mantic, AoW, Em4 and Reaper - seems like kind of an odd choice to launch their non-Frostgrave fantasy line. The modularity is really nice, you get a good variety of weaponry, and the style is good, but I don't think it's enough to tempt me.

    Having said all that, I'm glad to see more companies doing fantasy hard plastic kits, and I hope these are a huge success. I'll be really interested to see what their elves look like.

  6. If the core rules are free and the army rules really are inexpensive, I could see myself giving it a go with a relatively small army. If not, I'll wait for Ganesha's Harder Than Steel to come out and scratch the 40K itch with SW:A.


    Also, this is my favourite part of the FAQ I talked about earlier:


    Why should I trust you?
    Come on! This is New Games Workshop™

  7. There's an FAQ out about the new edition, you can find it on the aforementioned 40K website. Here's some pertinent info:

    All codex books will be obsolete, but new "low-cost books" will be available for army rules, while the core rules will be free to download.

    All current armies and miniatures will be supported in the new edition.

    The new edition will take cues from AoS and use the "three ways to play" concept (open, narrative and matched play).

    I saw that too. It came across my newsfeed on FB earlier today.

    Initially I was excited cause I've been wanting official Fallout minis for a long time now but...


    Not sure how I feel about it.

    I don't have any first hand experience with the company behind it and the pic they've shown of the minis has left me somewhat underwhelmed. I don't care for the running poses and the pic I've seen isn't of a high enough resolution to see a lot of the details.


    I will be keeping an eye out for more info though.


    For me it's a question of whether the rules are going to be better than This Is Not A Test, and if the minis are better than Brother Vinni's.

    Kind of wondering if Vinni's going to be getting a C&D letter soon, actually...

    A friend of ours got her license when she was very pregnant with her first child for pretty much this reason.  She'd put it off way to long at that point anyway, but it's nice to be able to take the baby somewhere if need be.  Or even just not be trapped at home with a baby. 


    Exactly. He burned his hands on the oven door a couple of weeks ago, and if I weren't home to take him to the urgent doctor then she'd have probably had to call an ambulance (even disregarding how much more she would have been freaking out about him being hurt).

  10. I'd really like to get my wife driving by the end of the year. It's almost impossible to find a good time for me to take her out practicing, and even if we did we'd have to take baby along and I don't think she would be able to relax if she were learning to drive with her child in the car, so we'll have to pay for lessons at some point where we can afford it.

    Sooner the better though, because it's only going to get harder to make the time and it's only going to get harder having only one of us able to drive. I really don't want to nag at her about it, but she's been putting it off for years.

    bleh, getting a wisdom tooth pulled this afternoon. Could use some good news.


    I'm not wearing any pants.

    You can either be happy for me or happy that you're not here to bear witness to my pantslessness, but either way it's good news.

    Stay calm and you should be fine.  I suspect they're a little harder on teenaged boys who drive aggressively than they are on moms. 



    True, in my experience. I was in my mid-20s when I finally took my full license test (a lot of people get theirs by 18), and when making a little idle chat before the test I mentioned to the instructor that I really just wanted to get my full license so that I could work late nights (on a restricted license here you can't drive past 10pm or before 5am). Test was a lot easier than it probably should have been; he didn't get me to do any maneuvering, just a quick drive around the city and I had my license.

  12. After work tonight I managed to find myself at the petrol station with no wallet at 1am, having just put $30 of petrol in my car.

    Luckily, my friend from work had just finished his shift at the same time as me and was able to come and pay for my petrol. He also bought be an ice cream, because according to him "there's nothing like ice cream to soften the blow of being an idiot".

    Question for Tuesday, April 18th

    Did you get your taxes done and turned in? If you're getting a refund, any fun plans for it?

    For those who aren't under the thumb of the IRS, do you like the tax system your country uses?


    I let my lovely wife deal with that, but I don't think that she has yet. It usually takes about ten minutes on the IRD website, but this year will be slightly more complicated because we received a Working for Families grant for a couple of months before wife decided to go back to studying.

    We should both be getting refunds by her calculations, probably around $800-$900 between us. It will probably almost all go towards paying off debts, with maybe a bit of fun money set aside.

    I don't really have much of a problem with our tax system. With our child being born I've been on the receiving end of many tax-funded programmes in the last year and a half, and I'm pretty amazed at what our tax dollars can achieve for us working-class folk.

    Question for Wednesday, April 19th

    When was the last time you moved? When do you think will be the next?


    We moved into this house just before Christmas in 2014, a month or so after we got married. I'm really happy with the location, the landlord and the price, so I don't think we're in any hurry to move. I'd be quite happy to stay here for the next couple of years while wife finishes her degree and we figure out where we want to put down roots and buy property (though with the cost of houses around the country, remaining in Dunedin seems like a logical choice).

    It's been quiet on the forums lately.

    Are people still in a chocolate coma from Easter?


    Didn't actually have much chocolate myself. Wouldn't have had any over Easter except that there was a bunch of chocolate eggs at work on Sunday for treat day (and hot cross buns which were promptly put into the muffin toaster by me).

    Been busy painting today, got a bunch of Frostgrave barbarians on the go. Hair, skin and furs are all base coated, with three different colours for each which should provide enough variation.

    Also my kid can apparently reach stuff on the edge of the table now, as evidenced by him tipping paint water all over the floor.

    Question for Monday, April 17

    There's a table full of every dessert in front of you. What's your second pick?


    Well I probably took something quite heavy for my first pick, so I think I'd want something light and refreshing for my second. A melon sorbet perhaps, or some green tea ice cream.
