Why would 40K units not wear a helmet?

Wait. Are you saying something isn't 100% realistic in the magic space setting?! Who would have thought an author's suggestion of a fishbowl sized forcefield for the head would make the autists reee as much?

>>92031782
A helmet prevents you from conditioning your skull to receive blows.
>>
>>92035475
this anon makes the best in-universe point.
there should never be any reason to take off a helmet besides for stealth/recon/damage reasons. the warp on the other hand is THE big thing of the war universe, and it having some kind of metaphysical influence is about as far fetched as demons streaming from it into the real world.

Is something like that ever mentioned in the lore? Closest thing is stuff like the Iron Halo, which is still full-body protection and there's no reason not to also have a helmet.

Seems like a "fishbowl sized forcefield for the head" would be a dramatic waste of energy when helmets are available, and it still would lack the sensory enhancements and communication features.

If it was, going into battle completely naked would be even more heroic.

This. There is nothing worse to the integrity of a game plot than when the players know they can call the DM's bluff and do monumentally retarded things and survive them. I was in a star wars game where the GM was like this and one problem player literally walked up to the front door of an enemy stronghold we were specifically told had invisible "Predators" that would blaster cast any fucker who would be stupid enough to walk up to it. Because he knew the GM wouldn't kill him, he was just captured and had a whole clearly made up on the spot RP segment with the villain where they were sent back out to give the rest of the party a message and wasn't punished at all. You can see this same shit happening in C3 where players like Melty are pushing for anything to happen that's not part of Matt's script.

>>92034775
its not just that their fanbase has an odd repulsion to character death. when nott got her curse lifted and her family back together, that was the perfect time to wrap up her story and introduce a new character, and have nott come back as a supporting NPC. and maybe Sam wanted to keep playing nott, i dont know the context, but whatever the rationale, nott just stayed with the party as a funny character that just.. existed. Makes me think that CR is so scared of their fanbase that even removing a character would kill their cash cow.

Amen brother.

Let's talk about DtD40k7e. A frankenrpg made by Lawful Nice as part of a dare that expanded upon jokes made during an Adeptus Evangelion game. A bastard child abomination of D&D, Dark Heresy, World of Darkness, Legend of the Five Rings, Star Trek, Mass Effect, and many many more. It is a mess, it sounds like a mess, but it's surprisingly playable in most regards. When it arrived, we all expected it to be a joke-- a virus-- or more likely, touhou futa. But instead it was a fully made system, and it's wormed it's way into the hearts of fatguys and catgirls-- whether to be reviled or revered.

This goes for every possible period you are going to more or less base your setting in. Take Glorantha for example (a bronzeish age setting), it looks awesome and organic, a world you can really immerse yourself in despite being super crazy with all sorts of weird races, magic, deities, etc.

Fellow Curse player here. What village are you in? And damn, your Ismark is uppity. Our party has Ismark traveling with us too, but after we got his sister a safe place (for now) and he saw our paladin summarily execute two church defilers, he's been a lot nicer. Even after Strahd bit his sister in front of us he still pays for a lot of our shit. Being a noble he's also been fairly useful at at least getting us access to nobles, burgomeister (for an initial audience, not when we killed him.)
>>
>>92039396
Village of Barovia. As far as our group goes, they've only just met the two; our first encounter with Ismark was a proposition in the bar to handle "family matters", meeting his sister who asked for help getting the Burgomeister's body put to rest after he was attacked (in a manner she's evasive about elaborating, but the body was in grizzly shape) then an escort to Vallaki where she's been promised asylum, Ismark watching the funeral from a distance out of sight before calling Ranger aside and asking him to kill her since he claims she killed their father.

Funny thing is, Ranger was perfectly prepared to do it too since he doesn't take chances with monsters. He and Artificer were planning to confront Ireena about the truth once they left the village before the mimic-house misadventure. Now the party thinks Ismark's a two-faced dick.
>>
>>92039510
Our meeting with those two was similar, except that he never asked us to kill his sister, instead asked us to defend her and find her a safe refuge from Strahd, who had already bitten her twice. We were offered two options, one by Ismark and another by the priest in Barovia. When we laid Ireena's dad to rest we learned that the priest was harboring his son turned vampire in the church basement. Our assassin came up with a decent plan, talked ismark into lending us a couple of town guards, and with some trickery to get some damage in early we killed the vampire. His dad was pretty upset, especially since the assassin (not meaning it) and our fighter (meaning it) had promised to try to help him. It's interesting to see how differently the same adventure can go!
>>
>>92039510
Also, we never ran into the mimic house! In town we found some houses had zombies in and the townspeople weren't helpful with a reason as to why, so we killed the zombies by opening the door of an infected house and butchering them as they filed out. In the bar we met Ireena and Ismark, and three gypsy ladies, one of whom read our Tarokka cards after our tiefling fighter ho flirted with them (the player didn't realize they were women at first but just went with it). Oh and we met these weird kids after we were already fucked up from a fight and they kept trying to get us to go into their house. The paladin offered for them to come with us until we were well rested, but they refused. He even reached out to take their hand but I got a DM "are you sure you want to do that" and the children refused my paladins hand. We figured something was off and the assassin suggested we leave, so the paladin told the children to come to the inn or the burgomeister's they'd be looked after. They weren't there the next day and the DM told us OOC that the kids were ghosts and we probably would have died if we'd gone in.
Oh and when we were meeting everyone earlier at the inn, our assassin (just a rogue at the time, we were level 2) snuck off to unsuccessfully try to break into a store. He also tried to fuck Madam Ava, and some other old lady, telling us that he hoped to swindle them out of their savings. (Playing with him further, he was probably planning to murder them too.)
>>
Also, on another tangent. Pally is currently a 5th level paladin and has all these paladin spells, but other than Cure Wounds once or twice he only really uses Divine Smite. Is there a point to most of the others? I can see Find Steed, but the others?

Why does no one play wargames outside in nature or the yard? It has the potential for massive play area and the terrain is realistic and cool.

Imagine home brewing some rules so shooting range is quadrupled, movement doubled, with vehicle movement is quadrupled, and then playing a big game using half the hard?

That's where Anthrax exists in nature. It's not a man-made bioweapon, it's a natural bacteria that does unpleasant things, and it exists in a spore form in soils. When it gets into cuts/wounds/lungs/etc, it wakes up and does it's bacteria thing. You can find anthrax spores in Antarctica.

>Weather
It's often windy and rainy outside and in the winter it's also cold and dark.
>Bad gameboard
Most models are hard to place properly on grass or other shit outside plus they would probably get dirty or scratch the paint easier.
You are also more likely to lose stuff because it can be harder to spot.
And maybe worst of all playing on the ground means you have to squat or bend over every time you move something. It's much more comfortable to play on a table where you can stand up normally and play.

I see no upsides to playing outside other than enjoying the nice weather in summer. I would rather spend some time outside doing other things and then go inside and play wargames in the evening.

you know very will that being great at something isnt the issue, it is the absolute disassociation with the game when it is not related to rolling. Your character could be replaced with an NPC, as a GM i don't want an extra NPC when I invite players, otherwise i would just play by myself.

IT IS PLAYABLE.
EXPEDITION - an ~1870s era, Jules Verne-inspired retro-futurist, underground blood soaked adventurescape.
It is a Skirmish wargame. Two players with their own expeditions, on a hexgrid map, fight each other for victory.
A campaign mode is planned, and currently in the works. (you) are encouraged to contribute.

3 versions of the rules exist, TWO of which have been playtested:
>1e - proof of concept, recently updated with unit stats

The question is more why hasn't Atlan done it already... Possibly an economic choice, titanium is just too precious and rare, better make titan toddler-sized golems than try to rebuild a full one?
> Picrel
I remade Minister Eiffel, since his Engineering abilities are going to be exported to an outside list. He'll be relatively more expensive than before too, and so I've boosted his melee ability appropriately. He has a complete lack of range combat, and his melee doesn't put out a lot of wounds by default, but on a charge and a turn you lost a mechanical unit, he should wreck faces.
I was thinking of giving him an additional rule that says he also always suffers Permanent Armour Loss (since he isn't really wearing armour, he's just got half-metal skin) but his Metamorphic ability would let him also regrow his armour... but I thought it was starting to be a lot.
As always, feedback is appreciated.
