GW Execs: You will give us your money OP, and you will get your plastic cocaine.
OP: Well that sounds like a very good deal, but i think i have a better one. How about this: I give you the Finger *flips the finger at GW execs" And you give reasonable priced minis.
GW Execs: What good is reasonable priced minis, if you are unable to... use them. *brings forth finecast minis*

That's it. I'm fed up with GW being cunts and only supporting the Imperial side of 40K, Sphess muhraines especially, and raising prices through the roof. I've been in this hobby since 2nd ed dammit and I've never seen such blatant disregard for the fanbase as now.

Fuck it. I'm going to sell off my ~2500p Necron army and buy a Trollbloods force with the money.
Is this a good time to sell off my 'Crons /tg/? Or should i wait 'till after the new codex has been released?

Necrons are game winners because nobody gets put up against them. I advise to keep them if you play in tournies.

I go to GW in Manhattan, New York. Everybody plays SPEHHHMURIIINES or IG. The one day that somebody comes in with Necrons, everybody's emperor-loving asses got whopped.

Why are you browsing /tg/, Dick Dastardly?

>> No.15353669

Infantry on the move (per your example, horde nids moving), would not have any apparent change in how often they are hit per the BS rumor. BS 3 hitting infantry on the move would still be a 4+, but the 'modifiers' would reduce that for stationary tanks, or increase it for faster jetbikes.

Granted, no other information has been given beyond that and it is (after all) a rumor. However another rumor item is the apparent vulnerability in large footslogging units, as well as the cover save reduction.

I will admit a constant 4+ (minimum) at all times is too much. But a general reduction to the effective survivability of horde, footslogging infantry is not needed at the moment. Especially when the 2 major examples of such are suffering pretty badly from 5th's terrible combat resolution system and No Retreat. The end result, will likely be (yet another) point decrease on such horde units. And being told that the army you play can expect to need possibly 20% more models to remain 'effective', is not grand news to hear.

Based upon previous experiences with 40k edition changes, I highly doubt they'll take something like that into account. One can always hope, however.

But it is, afterall, a rumor. And 5th's original rumor mill had just as many outlandish changes that never made it to the final cut.

Well even historically speaking, the French had a decent military at the time, and solid tanks for what they were going up against. The problem was they were expecting another 'trench war', and weren't prepared for the blitzkrieg. They could have held on and kept going, but the country, population, and government itself had already fought WW1 on it's own soil, and was tired of war. The military was good to go, but the rest of France just opted to surrender.

Guess nobody every told you - Miniature Wargaming has ALWAYS BEEN OVER PRICED.

You can try to put it in perspective and compare it to the price of a movie or the cost of video games and console systems. But really, who cares which one is 'more entertainment for your dollar'. Its all a waste of time.
If GW is too expensive for you, you really should get out of miniature war gaming altogether. PP is still a very expensive hobby.

>> No.15353883

I have to agree with this.. FoW armies are much less varied, and as such the game is much less about army building and much, much more tactics based. Marinehammer is all about building an army and then either charging directly towards your enemy and going into close-combatio or staying just within weapon range and shooting.

One of my favorite parts about Flames of War.

You might think that a Tank Company list would be vastly overpowered when playing against an Infantry Company list, but that is far from the case. Dug In infantry with good Anti-Tank weapons and a reasonable Tank Assault rating can be a real bitch for tanks to deal with if they don't have proper support.

>> No.15353980

I think a lot of it is simply because FoW is better designed. It's more intuitive, and far more enjoyable. Even in the situation you used as an example, a (well built) Tank company still has it's options, and can still put up a fight. FoW also has far more emphasis on playing to the scenario, and not playing to wipe out every last mother-fucker on the board.

>> No.15354011

I would as well. There are some fun and well designed game systems that are intuitive and make the shit GW produces look like the garbage it is. And that's completely discounting PP's miniature game that plays like M:TG.

I wouldn't know. I've never played M:TG or WarmaHordes.

>> No.15354066

It's not *necessarily* true... But in a very shitty way. The emphasis in 40k is still to kill as much as possible, with a pile of horribly designed gimmick-units and options. The objectives pretty much come down to 'treasure hunt', 'steal the bacon', and then 'who kill the most UNITS' (nevermind what they're worth).

In FoW, objectives flat out win/loose the game as soon as they're taken, if so much as one is compromised. Many missions put them at a 'turn 6 or later' requirement, but the objective of a game is never to just simply 'kill more stuff' (although getting them to fail a company motivation check does work). It is fully possible to win a FoW game by inflicting minimum casualties to your opponent's force, assault the defenders on an objective, maybe kill 1 stand of infantry, have him break, and claim the objective after he fails to get anything in to contest it.

>> No.15354756

Not sure about your area, but the guys I'm playing Flames with are all really cool. No elitist bs with us.

That said, all the nations are solid in their own way. As mentioned, Germans get the biggest toys, and have some of the best training in the game (most lists are rated Veteran, until you get to the Luftwaffe). And their nation-rules are all very beneficial, with tigers getting veteran skills, halftrack panzergrenadiers being able to launch assaults in their transport, and nearly every unit being able to freely designate a new platoon leader if they loose one.

As also mentioned, this comes at a price... Germans don't get a lot of numbers unless you build one of the less trained lists or go for more medium tanks (like PzIVs). They tend to be pricey, but are solid, dependable troops.

Even nations that seemingly have an unending array of negative special rules (Soviet tanks) are still balanced out well. In the Soviet case, it's what keeps their tanks lower in cost (generally).

Anything else you'd like to know?
