Well I know that but where is the story explanation? I mean even his capital still has traces of that. "Azryheim" sounds somewhat Germanic. Amd from the short story I read where Sogmar talks with Alairelle, he spent a good portion of hia time as a god distancing himself from his subject, treating godhood the same way a teen may treat their first job: no idea what exactly they should be doing. I just wonder at what point does he decide this foreign concept of !Romans sound better to him than !German stuff. Like why Gardus isn't Garhelm or Vandus isn't Vander.

>inb4 sack of potatoing
This is genuine confusion about Sigmar's decision, not an attempt to call back the Empire.
An official Forces of Hammerhal army

A scrappy, but professional army made of human, elfs, dwarfs and other races.

Think the Night Watch from Discworld, but more high fantasy.
Because Space Marines are GW's biggest selling product and the Emperor likes the Roman aesthetic. GW didn't bother with a story explanation.

Search for threads of people asking how to run a one piece campaign.

The answers you'll find doing that are probably nigh-identical to what one might want out of a Wakfu one.
Some people are able to tug for more than one climax per session. Some people have very small recovery periods. The list goes on.
Two questions:
Why did they switch to xp for kills ?

Why did they stick with xp for kills after seeing how it affected player behaviour ?

Same answer for both: 3e.

Last couple of weeks I have bought myself good core for a Skaven army for 5th ed. Clanrats are 6th/8th edition plastics cos paying 5-7€ for single clanrat when needing 60+ is stupid, but everything else is 5th ed or older metal: 30 stormvermin, 24 plague monks, 8 censer bearers, couple of globadiers and flamers, vermin lord, doomwheel and screaming bell. All from eBay, totalling to something around 200 eurobucks. That shouldnt kill the wallet of anyone having this kind of hobby.

I have also collected old metal Space Marines just for fun of it, you can find pretty good deals if you just check the listings couple of times per week. Pic related, those marines came with metal dreadnought, 45€ + shipping.

Well if you've found the submissions to be really bad then you generally don't agree with the judges because they like at least half the submissions
most of the issues the judges have seem to be either breaking the rules of challenge or not giving a proper rating. the judges seem to like most of the cards though.

Where Tomb Kings really that unpopular? I know their rules weren't good which was perhaps a deciding factor to their gutting, but they had some really nice models. You would think Games Workshop would have removed some of the older models (old infantry skeletons for example) and kept the new range around like Tomb Guard, Sepulchral Stalkers, Warsphinx and so on. Couldn't these models just been added to Age of Sigmar death range as part of the lists?

In your opinion did Tomb Kings deserve to be squatted?

Cool new scorpion monster and giant skeletons were not core troops(battleline units), you needed a horde of those older funny looking skeleton models to make an legal army that works in play.


This would be an example of such a list, see there are no scorpions or anubis skeletons on list and instead have a conversion model from nowhere?
>NPCs in the setting
I think this pisses me off more than anything. I’ve seen more fucking references to the chaos dwarfs in Age of Sigmar novels than the entire lifetime of WHFB. That’s fucking ridiculous. Black Library writers are a bunch of fags who write the same books over and over again and don’t bother to actually FEATURE THE ARMIES. The fact that the only TOMB KING books I can think of off the top of my head are the Nagash ones, is fucking atrocious, especially given that those aren’t even technically tomb king books.
>But there is an area in AoS which is described as egypt land with Tomb Kings riding around in chariots. They even have rules for AoS!

All those white plugs you see store larvae.

The hives are built like a corkscrew, so there's space between each turn of the disk. So with each step you take on the tract you move higher and higher, making it easier to navigate in the hive, especially for the queen. Very intuitive, and we'll designed. Honestly, I'd imagine this would be how a hive-city or a Megablock would be built like

It also allows them to pierce the heavens
They take an animistic view, instead of the drow's single-minded idolatry.

>What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or people's homebrew wargames. /hwg/ doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, lets talk about fun wargames.

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

So Jarek posted this on FB today.

Another teaser for new WZR models we'll see three years from now?
Has anyone here backed The Other Side? Finally getting into reading through rules and cards (from my group playtesting it) and I'm pretty damn excited. Planning out basing and paint schemes, and writing up a list to start playing with (to plan out paint order for my stuff)
I went for the cult. I am personally really looking forward to it. Did they actually put the rules themselves up?
The rules aren't up, I've got a copy from my group being involved in the playtest. It's just been a while since I've played, so I'm going back and making sure everything is fresh for when my stuff arrives.

I went in for King's Empire, getting one of everything except Kassa, Artillery and South Wales Borderers. I'm really excited to play, there's some really nasty potential combos with commanders so I'm keen on seeing how they'll work on the table

Traveller is a classic science fiction system first released in 1977. In its original release it was a general purpose SF system, but a setting was soon developed called The Third Imperium, based on classic space opera tropes of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, with a slight noir tint.
Though it can support a wide range of game types, the classic campaign involves a group of retired veterans tooling around in a spaceship, taking whatever jobs they can find in a desperate bid to stay in business, a la Firefly or Cowboy Bebop.

>Most of the worlds we see are not Trantor/Corrisant sprawls.

But statistically, that's where most of the population comes from. and most of these worlds tend to be A) high law-level totalitarian states, and b) high technology worlds where the choices for the uneducated masses are either welfare, prison, or the military.
Here's a few (mostly) Traveller articles from the old Judges Guild zines. Unfortunately couldn't find all of the issues with Traveller material. So not as complete as the Dragon or Space Gamer compilations.

That makes sense.
I guess I'm having trouble wrapping my head around that much humanity dispersed thought the Universe.

>The problem isn't building and crewing enough ships; it's getting enough of them to the right place, at the right time, when your communication speed is equal to your deployment speed, and the "front" is likely weeks or months out from the center.

Exactly. Look at the Trafalgar Campaign.

Villeneuve escaped Toulon on March 30th, sailed to the Caribbean, sailed back to Europe, stooged around the Bay of Biscay, and was finally engaged by Nelson at Trafalgar on October 21st. All of that was one day shy of nearly seven months.

Nelson knew Villeneuve had escaped within a day, but first headed east thinking the French were going to Egypt again. He got to the Caribbean about 3 weeks after Villeneuve did and missed catching the French off Antigua by 2 days. When the French returned to Europe they headed for ports in the Bay of Biscay while Nelson headed for Cadiz and Gibraltar instead. Villeneuve stooged around for another month trying to sneak into Brest before sailing south into Cadiz. That's when Nelson finally knew where Villeneuve was, but he still had to wait over a month for the French to sail out and fight.

No radio, no telegraph, and everything you know beyond your visual horizon depends on another ship arriving with news results in a 7 month chase. In Traveller, that visual horizon is the system you're in. Everything know beyond that system is - at the very best - over a week old.

It's a concept that is really hard from some players to grasp.

I'd play the fuck out of that.

What system would you even want to use to run a food based game like that?
I'm not sure how you'd even do the actual cooking parts since that's where the focus is. The only combat I could see happening is while hunting for ingredients.

I'm still waiting for the day the Dark Dozen led by The Butcher happens.

Gail de Rais is NE.
In his own confession, Gilles testified that “when the said children were dead, he kissed them and those who had the most handsome limbs and heads he held up to admire them, and had their bodies cruelly cut open and took delight at the sight of their inner organs; and very often when the children were dying he sat on their stomachs and took pleasure in seeing them die and laughed”

He had upward of six hundred victims.
