You awaken to the sound of the carriage stopping. You are finally here, in front of a large, ivory mansion, the entrance to the territory of the Ambrosius, a great family of mages and warriors, to meet your pretendent. You, from a minor family, had to be used as marriage material so your patrimony could grow, and seriously, you find it an outrage. Liking it or not, you’re going anyway, so you might as well enjoy it a little. A warning from your father, though, is that you aren’t the only one going for the hand of the young heir of the Ambrosius, as six other families of equal hierarchy as yours are trying the same freaking move. You aren’t intimidated, though. You are confident that it’s you that he’ll pick, because you are the beautiful and talented daughter of the:

I sent it two times?! It happens...
Sensing you tense, Hart puts his hand on your shoulder.
‘’Milady, let’s go, yes?’’ He says, trying to sound calm.
‘’Yes… Yes… Let’s go…’’ And then, the four of you go into the room… There, you see a large table, in one side sitting the boy, Tristan, and a tall man with silvery hair, probably his father, and in the other, an ill looking Hyllia, what brings a smile to your lips.
‘’Hart, be just outside, okay?’’ It’s what needs to be said to your loyal butler for him to silently turn and go out, muttering ‘’Thank you’’ on his way.
You then sit, at the side of Hyllia, what makes her stiff. Mary, Selena and Aria sit to your left then, occupying the middle chairs, and letting the two of the sides to the two others…
After some time, the man spoke.
‘’So, you must be… The heirs of the Valliant, Nyctoeth, Aronheim, Yarnham, and Arcelius, no?’’ he asks, the incarnation of neutrality.
‘’Yes’’ you all say, almost at the same time, earning a chuckle of the boy.
‘’Well. This boy here, this rebellious and disrespectful boy here, is my son, Tristan Ambrosius. I’m Zachariah Ambrosius, and I’m here to discuss with you a marriage proposition. You see, my son don’t have a talent. Not a single thing he is good at. He is my first born, and as per tradition, he has to inherit my place, as the head of the Ambrosius family. So, here is the deal: You have one year, the one who can turn this good for nothing into… Something, can have the right to marry him. It doesn’t matter who likes him more, or vice-versa. Any questions?’’ He says, coldly.

>’’No. I’m good with it.’’
>’’Actually, I wanted to ask about (Write-in)’’
Define something. Anything is technically something, A pervert, a lech, etc.
I second this.
Even good for nothing brat is something.
Doesn't his feels play into this? I would hate to enter a marriage where there is potential infidelity already.

The PDF rules for the armies are temporary, to allow people to still use their old armies, there's new lines coming eventually.

It's not even out yet, what do you expect in fluff? There's already one fiction book coming out, as well as a 96 page fluff book with the starter set.

We don't know shit yet, give it time.
Sometimes a player may attempt to achieve
a sudden death victory. If one army has
a third more models than the other, the

objective from the sudden death table
aŽfter generals are nominated.
Youre ruining the effectiveness of the meme.
Fine by me. I wouldn't want new Age of Sigmar descriptions of them anyway.

>All units on bikes move 36" and all units mounted in vehicles move 18"


Im pretty sure both vehicles and bikes can move 24'' per turn (12 movement+12 flat out/turbo boost)
Vehicles flat out 6".
Fast Vehicles flat out 12".
Fast Skimmers flat out 18".
You are both wrong.

Bikes move 12"+12", or 12" + 24" if they are jetbikes.

Vehicles flat out 6", or 12" if fast or 18" if fast skimmer.
You are correct on the bike thing. I got them mixed up with the regular jetbike movement rules. However I do believe I was correct on the vehicle movement rules. Regular vehicles move 6" when they turbo boost, Fast moves 12", Fast Skimmers move 18"
Eldar jetbikes flat out 36". Right?

Yo. To this very day I hate that twat who I had to escort into the opera whilst the city was under attack.

I still have MW2, GBL and MW2 Mercenaries in their original giant cardboard boxes, but my BT gaming started a bit earlier, with Crescent Hawks' Inception and that Jurassic forefather of Megamek, Battleforce/Mechforce, on the Amiga.

But that trainer's got nothing on ol' Dead-Eye ("Your callsign: Hey You"). Or that bastard dropship captain who lifted off, leaving Holly Harris for dead.

I dunno, I think the Clan instructor out-bantz Dead-Eye.

Plasma rifle and LBX-10 in the arms, 3t of ammo each; plasma in LA w/ammo, LB-X in RA with ammo in RT. 4MXPLs, two in each arm. CASE-II in both side torsos, and an MML-3 each in the CT/RT/LT with 2t of ammo in the LT.
All remaining tonnage is spent on Ferro and three more sinks.

Keeps the basic profile (flakker/allrange critseeker and bodyguard), while significantly upping its survivability. It also adds a solid Warcrimes and anticonventional role, since you can afford to load infernos in the MMLs without significantly decreasing its firepower. 9 infernos, plasma, and a couple tons of buck are the stuff of nightmares for Industrials and BA.
A couple threads back, I read that the Bandersnatch is on the periphery general RAT in one of the DA (or maybe some other post jihad thing) books, and I'm wondering if anyone knows which it is, because if it's lore friendly, I'm gonna start including it in my Calderon Protectorate and Brotherhood of Randis units

The most elecrifying man in space entertainment.
Max Reebo

I would think he would have started in Scout and had more levels in that than Noble. Also, I don't see how he would have reached level 10 at any point; seems excessive. Level 6 or 7, I could understand, but 10?

Also, truth is, Jar Jar's not necessarily unintelligent, though he is clumsy and foolish. I'd bump his INT up to 10 and drop his DEX. In fact, I'm not sure how you got his ability scores with the standard array or point buy at all.

He's also not eligible for Swift Strider without Long Stride and Sidestep.

For skills, Ride I can see, but Pilot? Really? I could see Survival, but not Pilot.

Thanks for the reply. There are three other guys at my LGS who are planning to get into it, one each talking about running Jedi, Rebel, and Smugglers, so whichever way I go is going to duplicate something in the group, but that's no big deal. I have already been pondering a Rebel Hoth speeders deck. The speeders seem pretty fragile, but at least as vehicles they dodge a lot of Sith character control.

more like there are objectives in the middle of the table 90% of the time and you have to reach them in order to win
gunlines are not the best idea in infinity they can always be broken by stacking modifiers, even my double reaktion bot, intruder sniper gunline can be broken through with good tactics and equipment.

Also objectives
The game is rarely played in a full "kill the other dood's mans" sort of way. You need specialists to get objectives and score points. Specialists usually need protection, which means you more often than not need units to get them there.
Oniwabans can be pretty nasty but Ninjas are popularly regarded as a little overcosted, save maybe the Hacker and Tactical Bow variants.

But generally Infinity doesn't go on a 'who kills all the guys first' way to win, it's objective orientated.
Relying on one reasonably-powerful model like that is known as Ramboing. It's really only powerful as long as your opponent isn't experienced enough to counter said model, and with Ninja/Oniwaban, there's some fairly simple counters (flamethrowers and MSV come to mind). Having at least two TO counters tends to be fairly standard for my list.

It might seem like they're rather overpowered, and I admit I thought so as well at first, but with a couple of exceptions things with TO Camo tend to be very fragile in other aspects, and normally you only need one shot to hit, so simply piling on enough shots can be enough. And as someone mentioned, TO models are *expensive* pointswise, so losing one hurts your opponent a lot.

To give an example, I played a game as Haqqislam against ALEPH. Early on my opponent revealed a Hidden Deployment Dasyus (a TO Infiltration model) in a position which basically wrecked my advance, due to the stacking bonuses of TO, cover, and high ground, and that Dasyus had fairly good gun. Of course, all of that added up to 36 points for a 1 wound model, and none of it helped when my 13 point Naffatun set him on fire. Cost me the Naffatun as she had to walk into direct fire to do it, but it was worth it.

Oh, and that game also proved an example of the disadvantage of gunlines. He had a good setup of longer ranged units across good positions on the board, which didn't help an awful lot while I was sweeping up objectives - sure I had to make some sacrifices but because of his deployment he couldn't take much advantage of my thinning units. Plus I had an Impersonator unit thoroughly ruining his backline, meaning he had to split his attention between dealing with my main force and stemming the damage my Fiday was causing.

Now THAT'S how you do it.

Both of them are selfish evil. Chaotic evil is more prone to destruction and doing what they way, and there are examples of CE characters in both D&D and Pathfinder that aren't Stupid Evil.

NE is also the alignment called out in the CRB as the one that people upholding evil for the sake of evil are. Way to reading comprehension, anons.

This is why alignment's pretty bullshit anyway

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for tribute, I can tell you that I am but a humble Inquisitor with little material wealth. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for xenos scum like you. Whether or not you willingly release the Governor's daughter into my care, know this: I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
If you Neophytes leave my island, if you survive scout training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes.

But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no tribal bigotry here. I do not look down on Jorgs, Tulls, Culls or Esers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all unworthies who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Chapter. Do you maggots understand that?

Mate, the Flood are a colossal thread especially in Prehistoric Halo. Even Ancient Humanity, which should annihilate current Halo Humanity rather easily, and the Forerunners (afterwards) feared them. If the Imperium is willing to Exterminatus a planet due to Tyranids than I'm not surprised that Ancient Humanity glasses planets due to Flood.

I agree with you on the Forerunners (goddamnit I hate the forerunner books), but I think the Flood were fine as a third party interloper that would've catalyzed a Human x Covenant alliance.

I like H4's storytelling re: Chief x Cortana, but the rest of it is just asinine shit.
A gift from the prewarhammer40k gods
It was my favorite series. The ideas are very inspired and the art is unique.

Now though its been stretched to the point of breaking. I cant even follow all the fan fiction tier retcons they have done since Reach and some of the new lore is just outright painful.

It hurt to see the forerunners. Their design was garbage. Now I hear the Flood are caused by space magic too, but I havent even read into that.
>Flood are caused by space magic
The flood are cause by humans finding mysterious powder in the back of an intergalactic delivery truck and deciding it would be a really good idea to rub this powder on space dogs for centuries and then bam! Flood happens everyone dies.

Your characters god has decided to reward their many years of loyalty by giving them the chance to retire to an island of pleasures built in their ideal image.

Supplies, materials and any other things you might want will be infinitely supplied. Any creatures will be as friendly or hostile towards you or others (for those battle hungry), as you see fit.
