No it's not. I am just legitimately concerned that you don't see the human element in all this. People form patterns and categorize what is familiar to them into sections. This is how society functions.

To deny that fact is to literally deny everything we've done for eons from the very first cave drawings.
Basically. Not all vampires have to drink blood or burn in the sunlight. If you think otherwise, you're not a very creative, imaginative person and probably not a very good writer.
>No it's not.

Yeah, it is. Surely, you understand why it is?

Other then being massive faggots, the main problem with Twighlight ''vampires'' ,as some anons pointed out, is NO FUCKING WEAKNESSES. I'll use Jojo vampires as an example to elaborate.
Jojo vampires are EXTREMELY powerful. Like, insanely. And they are nigh-impossible to kill. The only thing that kills them is sunlight. They would be even more broken then Twishits (a single one absolutely has the power and means to take over the world), if the protags didn't have martial arts energy called ''Ripple'' which simulates sunlight. Also, they have to drink blood. Also, they're not written by a retard. So yea, it's all about the writer.

So what do you think? Playable? Standard? Modern?

Mirage had way more than theros
At WORST it's an irremovable Glorious Anthem effect for your deck, so token decks, aggro decks, and some lower curve midrange decks will get use out of that.

If he sticks around for more than a turn, that's when things get interesting. He doesn't have a true ult per se, so a more dedicated midrange deck and control decks won't get as much out of him as various other walkers. What he brings to the table though is a decent-sized body on the +1, and a chump blocking token production ability as a 0 cost. If anything, the fact that he doesn't lose any loyalty for making tokens will probably let him see play in control decks, as they can just sit there and poop out tokens all day until they wrath the board, and then go on the offensive with his +1 and basically never even look at the -4 ability.

To me, this feels like a card that originally had a 4th ability (ala JTMS, probably a higher cost ultimate for a one-sided wrath effect) but the ult couldn't be balanced in time so they just said, "fuck it, run him out with the top 3 abilities."
a 4-mana walker with three relevant abilities that can protect itself the turn it hits the field without losing loyalty?

If this doesn't see standard play, I'll eat a hat.
He already looks like he's from Planet of the Apes
What happened to P/T equal to the number of loyalty counters on him?

Isn't it redundant to have both Indestructible and 'prevent all damage'?

We seriously need an upgrade from this to win the encounter.

Our microwave generator would drain us too much to fight effectively.

The Chain Mine spits off out of the carapace mount. It bangs away with a jolt, the loader system grinding - the single-shot pod disengaging with a hiss, segments falling away as the violent exhalation of flame boils around you, blotting out your vision; Hydraulics judder, holding you steady, as the vast missile surges across the distance-

And - like a miracle - the fog clears. You see it plainly, with your true eyes - the chequerboard markings, the fluting of the exhaust ducts, the rivets in the seams, the great spear of flame that trails behind it as thrusters kick in-

Danger close.

Enfer brings his arms up, in a gesture of final defiance-

The Phanlax spears into him. *Through* him. The warhead finds the seam of weakness in his armor, and punches home - the impact lifts him, grotesquely, from his feet; Impaled through the spine, the cage of his ribs breaks open - Plasma fire boiling forth, from his inchoate core-

First detonation. Proximity-fused magnetic explosives tumble from the vents of the primary missile - several hundred depleted-uranium canisters, blitzing forth like lethal toys. They hang in the air, for the thousandth of a second; their vector thrusters igniting, kicking them into their own spiralling ascent-

And all of them - *All* of them - converge on Enfer.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Another one bites the dust, I hope.
Took him more than long enough.

Final detonation.

Phosphorescent death. A bright blister of flame. A burning, incadescent bow-wave - The herald of the super-dense explosion that boils out from Enfer's core. His form breaks apart - His armor unwrapping around the core explosion, like a time-lapse feed of a flower's petals opening, blooming and dying. A series of star-hot overblasts - flame belching in a final, triumphant burst - that chains into a blazing mushroom cloud fifty metres into the air, his twisted outline vanishing, atomized-

Then the blast wave hits, sudden and bright, hot and vast. Everything goes outwards - the burning cloud unfurling, moving with a furious will - it *reaches* out, as the kinetic impact hurls you from your feet; Lifted, and *flung* by the mauling force like a toy in the hands of a cruel child. Staggering, lethal flares rip away from the hear of the inferno in tongues of flame and lashing arcs of energy-

The air fills with a storm of glass shards, as the crystalline surfaces of the memory towers shiver apart. It sounds like the end of the world, and perhaps it is. Perhaps the swelling echo of Enfer's death will swell to engulf everything in boiling flame...

Without warning, the blast fades. It recedes with unnatural speed, the torrent of pyreflame drawn away - even as a new light fills the chamber-

And as you sprawl in the blackened crater of superheated, fused stone spontaneously excavated by the titanic blast - in the deafening silence that follows - there is a low rumble. A deep, seismic sound, a sound that shudders through the Diadem, that evokes the image of the agonized sky caving in...

You are Siegfried Schmidt, a former guard from the city of Morsland. Due to various circumstances, you have become the new wielder of Galadriel, a holy sword which houses a powerful six-winged angel of the same name. Now you have come to the White Watchtower, a fortress close to the border between the Forsaken Lands and the kingdom of Iseria, to train with the crusaders so that you can protect yourself from the demons that might come after you now that the sword is in your possession.

Today is the fourth day of your week of trial at the Grey Watchtower. Today, you will begin your journey into the swamp, where you are to travel to the old wall which once formed the border between Belmore and the Forsaken Lands and light the two beacons atop the wall, then return to the Grey Watchtower safely. You've spent the last three days preparing for this journey, you are now ready to venture into the frozen swamp.

superglue works, but you should generally use plastic cement for plastic models. I don't know why you think you need two bottles of super glue.
Works fine, that's the stuff I use.
Stuff you should consider getting

X-acto knife or equivalent
replacement blades for X-acto
Plastic cement (Testor, Tamiya, Revell)
Superglue (any brand)
Sanding sticks, alternatively sand paper
Good sprue cutters (Tamiya, Xuron)
Cutting mat
Pin vice

This is good advice. Take your time with this first batch of models, don't try to assemble them all in one day. Also, give the sprues a wash with soap and water, gets rid of the release agent.
Just find some tutorials online on how to paint models and buy an x-acto knife, brushes in different sizes, and some good paints. Vallejo is good. I heard Tamiya is great, but haven't used it personally.

For the game, focus on using cover as much as possible, get the hell out of melee, and it's hard to miss with grenades. If you want to focus on smaller games, use Heralds of Ruin, or Kill Team. Be chill with some fan content. Ever want to use an alternative profile for the bolter? As long as you both agree, it should be fine.

All word and pixel /tg/-related lewdness is welcome here, so long as the board's rules are followed. Writefags, consider pastebin/1d4chan rather than dumping for long stories so they don't get lost in between threads; drawfags with uncensored pictures need to host their images offsite and link to them.

People especially appreciate it when you give them meaningful feedback and criticism, so make sure to do so. It's easy and both writefags and drawfags will love you for it.

In any case, enjoy! Remember to play nice and that all contributions and requests are welcome!

DISCLAIMER: Although requests are encouraged to promote a constant flow of new content, unfortunately not all of them can be fulfilled even at the best of times; don’t take it personally if we don’t get to you right away.

Glad you enjoyed it anon. That’s what I write this shit for.

Oh hey, so reviews now? We reviews now.

>>A Tail from the Wilds

Minor errant capital letter on It in L20, but other than that, no niggles or editing issues I could find. Well, besides some of your ellipses turning into one symbol or staying three separate periods. Might be your editor of choice being on the frizz about them. Just a tiny niggle, but it’s something I’ve seen in your submissions before.

They say curiosity killed the cat (you dick you used that one too in your story). They sometimes follow up with ‘satisfaction brought her back.’ And you delivered a satisfying read, Belgium. I liked your characterization of Miles and Kit steadily building up across the various scenes, allowing quite a bit of fleshing out of traits and motivations. And then the differences in the two key smut scenes was just grand, harsh enough where it mattered and when, followed by something a little more tender I felt. Very much enjoyed this, thanks!

>>Archer's Quarry

Oh jesus this is a rollercoaster of hatefucking. Between the insults and the abuse and then finally the debasement, it just went on and on and made for a vivid picture. Pacing was spot on, as well, and the creeping sense of dread on Rylyn’s ultimate fate proved to be right, too. You really have a knack for harsh stuff, it would seem. Not my usual cuppa, but I did enjoy it while it lasted.

Not much on editing I can remark on, either, though you also have what I described for Belgium to have an issue with your particular use of ellipses. Additionally, tiniest of niggles, L217, “making her shriek [as] he [...]”

>>Chronicles of Xeltil, The Chubby Dragon Nerd

Oh hey there, Xeltilanon. You’re right about some spelling and editing niggles, but that hardly matters if you didn’t use a Pastebin account to edit with later. In short, you tend to miss tenses sometimes, commas, or you add a few letters too many in places: a few instances of ‘here’ there you meant ‘her’ instead, for example. Don’t hesitate to sign up sometime. Makes editing and referencing easier! I’m sure the /d/ writefag depository would also love to see your stories added to them. Go hog wild!

That actually does bring me to the point that I personally found it a bit difficult to read through with those editing faults. I found them to distract and detract from my reading enjoyment, though admittedly, the subject matter itself I found not at all enjoyable either. Pretty sure that, with an editing pass, it would certainly be more legible and enjoyable - especially to the intended crowd. Don’t let me keep you from writing more (food) stuff. I did enjoy the write-ups for what the smells and tactiles did for Xeltil. She seemed a cute initially.

Oh hey you drew this for us? I love the posture, and I’m amazed that image came about so quickly too! Thanks for sticking around, Lewd.

>>ZeDarkPenguin drawings

Welcome back with your Caitians. The latter images are just quick sketches, but I dig the expression and the posture, particularly on the dude in the second pic. As for the first pic with flats in process, my one concern is that the nudity is quite gratuitous for what looks to be two otherwise battle-prepped people. Still digging that bum.

Good luck colouring it, mate.

“I'll do it” you say “wait here”. As the others wait behind you walk calmly across the bridge towards the goblins. They raise their weapons as you approach but don't rush you or sound any alarms or anything.

“Hi” you say with a smile as you walk towards them, talking in a friendly tone, anything to distract them “I got a little lost and I was wondering if you could give me some directions?”

As the goblins give each other confused looks you start casting your spell. That gets their attention and they raise their weapons and advance. They haven't got very far when a glowing sword appears and flies towards them, embedding itself in the chest of one of the goblins, who drops with a surprised sigh. Then the sword explodes, throwing the other goblins back, but not alas, killing them.

With a groan of frustration you ignite your glowing sword and rush forwards. Two of the goblins rush to meet you, but one retreats, heading for a small metal bell hanging from the door. You quickly cut down the goblins in your way and fly towards the last goblin, your wings beating as fast as they can. He reaches the bell first and manages to get off a few chimes, before you cut him down.

Ahead of you the doors open slowly as you hear the others running up behind you.

The doors open into a large cavern with...dozens of goblins. It has three tiers, connected by flights of stairs, you are on the lowest tier.

In the distance on the highest tier you can see a human wizard casting some sort of spell as he stands next to a glowing circle. Two more of the goblin shamans are with him, as well as some goblin warriors.

Spread across the two lower tiers are more goblins. Not much of a threat...but there are a lot of them, and they could slow you down.
“Better luck next time” Anlanesa commiserates as she reaches you.

“Want me to run on ahead?” asks Phaysis, as Safire comes up to one side of you silently.

Well, you could fly on ahead too, but splitting your forces, when a demon might appear...

The goblin warriors give a croaking yell and advance, as the archers draw their bows.

What do you guys think about the new Warhammer? How long will it be before GW makes skirmishes the new standard?

It was only a matter of time before WHFB would become Warhammer 40k Fantasy. Blame the low sales and poor marketing that Fantasy Battles was given.

Age of Sigmar should be Mario Kart IMO.
I like when there was exactly one overpriced core infantry box of 10 girls for 35 squids, yet people are talking about it being the standard. nvm that most core boxes were 15 pounds for 16-20 models at independent resellers

my fantasy armies contain twice the models of my 40k armies and cost 50-60% as much as the 40k ones. the issue was not spending the money on an army, it was assembling and painting 120 models instead of 40-60. that was the real issue that made fantasy less popular
btw 40k is going the fantasy route with the new detachments enabling 0 point costs 12 tanks shenanigans
Although those are often pretty restrictive, like you have to have 3 tactical squads, an assault squad (or equivalent) and a devastator squad (or equivalent. If anything it'll have the problem old fantasy had of people not being enthused about buying, building and painting squads they don't necessarily want. They'll be fine if it remains optional, and it almost certainly will, but if formations do take over and CAD disappears then I could see 40k starting to struggle.

I said "when GW start to reach the point" where that's the cost of core. It's the most extreme example, but the models have always been expensive and grow progressively more so with each release. The last big fuss I remember was about the 'Goldswords' as 10 core models at £25 for instance, and cutting 20 man infantry boxes into 2 10 man boxes with an overall price hike.

Changing models/rank from 4 to 5, and the introduction of steadfast and hordes also pushed up unit sizes. As this changed, people have used larger point value battles to allow them a similar number of units to play with on the field.

Sounds like you're being ripped off even worse for 40k models if that's the case. The first reason I've always heard from people interested in traditional games that don't want GW products is the price.

145 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
My old girlfriend would stare practically hypnotized at the scantily dressed, fan service girls in video games. She claimed to be straight as an arrow and imagining if those girls were her. Backing this up was the fact that she never showed any interest in real life girls, in movies or television shows, etc. In a fighting game, she would invariably play the girl with the least clothes and the biggest tits. That was maybe explained by the fact that though she was actually decently cute, she was shy and had small boobs. So I guess: wish fulfillment.
Did you win?
The existence of them does not make anyone uncomfortable, and it's an idea mostly men push that something is offensive because it exists, not due to how it's presented or used.

I don't accept the argument that adding new players somehow pushes out players or retroactively erases older games; they're still there. They can even preserve their claim in the allegedly-persecuted moral high ground by just changing targets from the guys who beat them up twenty years ago to the guys who don't get beat up or beat anyone up.'
Because that's insane.
I agree.

But I don't see it as a good thing, either. Probably because I don't play any of the D20 games (D&D and PF) that, let's be honest, will be all the "normie" players play. So it just doesn't effect me- we probably won't ever end up really interacting much, new businesses opened up to take advantage of the new market won't be aimed at me, and so this whole thing just doesn't affect me.

I didn't say he SHOULD be reanimated, I said he COULD be. It's an advantage over the old one.
Reading comprehension please.
Banned in the only format it would otherwise be legal in where newlamog matters <3
What's the point of point of pointing it out when it doesn't matter? You are just doing to to make it seem like the new is better than it is.

You can reanimate Charging Badger AND he doesn't die to deathrattle AND you can put a bunch of auras on it to make it a 20/20 AND he has trample.

The new guy is damn powerful, bravo wizards for managing to make the big bad badgers still feel like unstoppable monsters without the annihilator mechanic.
