  1. Well, I kind of did the thing. We ended up having a bottle each. Whoo wild night in the Mongar household!
  2. I want to own my own business, ideally a hobby shop or something hobby-related. It's a long term goal, which we're working towards. There are many small things I'd like to do, but with not too many hours left in the day I'll choose something that I can do without leaving the comfort of my home and share a bottle of cider with my wife.
  3. Certainly seemed odd, but it's totally possible and plausible that I'm misremembering one or more points of information.
  4. My wife and I dressed our son up in his Santa outfit and delivered hand made chocolates to the people working at the South Dunedin McDonald's restaurant. We work at the North Dunedin one, but it's the same owner for all three restaurants in town and we all know each other, plus people from all the restaurants were working that day (because they were only rostering people who specifically wanted to work Christmas Day).
  5. Is that restaurant the Buckhorn Exchange? I went there with my cousin and her family a couple of years ago. Bison, elk, rattlesnake and the like on the menu. Funny thing, I seem to recall her husband telling me that their supply of elk comes from here in NZ. Go figure.
  6. I'll probably pick up the issue of White Dwarf with rules for Genestealer Cults in Necromunda when it comes out, so that I can play with friends who have the game, but I think I'll leave it at that. I have plenty of neophytes with which to build a gang.
  7. It's looking more likely that any Necromunda minis I get will be used as wasteland raiders or Cursed Earth desperados.
  8. Plot twist: Bryan get roped into teaching a ReaperCon class for Secret Weapon.
  9. I haven't written a Christmas card since I was a little boy, but almost every year my mum still asks me if I'm sending out any cards. It's actually a tempting prospect now because we can do ridiculous Christmas family photos to go with them (see exhibit A from last year below).
  10. I feel like some Gorkamorka fans will be using the Goliaths as Diggas.
  11. Huh, it retails for 180 NZD, which is pretty much on par with the exchange rate. That is decidedly unlike GW. But then we're both paying more than the UK, but not by as much as we used to. Anyway, a friend of mine has bought the Underhive box and I'm likely to have a go at it this weekend. Those of my friends who are keeping a closer watch on the game than I have told me about some promising changes to the rules, not the least of which is an alternating activation system, as well as more distinctive weapons for the various houses.
  12. Pesto is so good on pasta. I've got some chilli pesto in the fridge that I used the last time we had tortellini; it was delicious, but maybe a bit too spicy for the boy... at least he didn't rub his eyes this time.
  13. It's the hair. For real though, he gets a lot more likeable in the second season.
  14. No, it's specifically mentioned as an Aquila in the Warhammer Community article. Maybe Imperial beastmen and other abhumans will be something we'll see more of. I seem to recall that the old Epic Imperial Guard sprue used to come with beastmen.
  15. Forge World have shown the first of their releases for Necromunda, a bit of a Rogue Trader throwback with a beastman bounty hunter. See, rather than being children of Chaos as they are in WFB, beastmen in 40K are a recognised race of abhumans in the Imperium just like the ogryns, ratlings or squats (notice the Aquila on his chest armour).
  16. The Necromunda boxed set is more like a board game, and is accompanied by the Gang War book which includes 3D terrain and campaign rules. Rogue Stars is strictly 3-5 characters per squad and doesn't have vehicle rules. Andrea is working on a game called Harder Than Steel which was previously slated for release this year, but is being delayed until they've finished releasing what they want to for the Star Eagles game. It will be able to handle vehicles and squads at an army size similar to 2nd edition 40K.
  17. Word is that there will be downloadable legacy rules for the old gangs (or at least the house gangs). I'm quite looking forward to seeing them flesh out the world some more, particularly with Hive Secondus and potentially the Ash Wastes.
  18. No, that sort of thing is more reserved for Anzac Day over here. I am enjoying a weekend off with my boy, though. Still need to get something for dinner mind you, so I don't know if I'd say I'm really ready for Saturday considering its now past noon.
  19. Watched Thor last night with the wife for our anniversary. First time out to the movies since Dr Strange. Couldn't help thinking of this every time Korg spoke... (Little bit of NSFW language) It's quite disarming hearing a distinctly Kiwi accent in a big Hollywood movie. Takes one out of the experience a little.
  20. If GW does a new Mordheim with minis that look as good as the new Necromunda ones, I'd be sold. As for Vanguard, it's a little thing but a neoprene mat would go a long way to convincing me to back. Even better if there's different styles available.
  21. For a skirmish game there's more repetition in the mini poses than I'd like. Hoping for the option to pick and choose add ons, plus a couple of deluxe mat options, but we'll see. With $30 for shipping I'll probably just wait for retail.
  22. Got in a few games of Dragon Rampant last night. First battle was the boiler pot scenario with my undead defending their dwarf dinner against the nasty elves who wanted to kill the dwarves themselves. The battlefield after deployment: The brave defenders from the grave: Unfortunately, the elves advanced quickly and the pot was soon tipped over by the dragon rider. Next scenario was a death chase, with the dead being the chased and the elves doing the chasing. Turns out dragons are good at chasing, and I didn't make it half way before getting bogged down in combat. Soon it was down to a lone banshee, who put up a great fight but couldn't take on an army by herself. Major lessons learned are to take a balanced force, and not to rely upon summoning to much. Both games ended with a unit of skeletons left stranded off the board. Great fun had by all, though.
