Holy cow, this topic is still going?

Anyhow, I'm back and plan to be a little more active again. For part of the reason I skipped town for a bit, please have a look at this post.

What'd I miss?

Well, apparently it's already been two years since I last posted. In the meantime real life caught up with me. I am spending far more time doing my internships/rotations than I would like which leaves me with little time at home. But quite a bit worse, about a year ago my father was diagnosed with a non-curable form of lymphoma that does require agressive treatment. So the past year has most definitely been a rollercoaster for me, with chemo treatments working great, not working at all, working great again.... Let's just say that we had nowhere near a smooth ride but it should mellow out soon (in about 2 months). Being with family ate up a lot of my time and energy, so I kind of stayed offline for the most part.

That said, I'm back. For those of you that know my brother, I'd prefer if you not messaged him about our situation. Although we all agree about sharing the information with whomever we feel like, I'm not sure how he'd like this or the attention that could follow. So if you guys could keep that in mind, I'd be very happy :)

I'm home, thanks for a great weekend. Good night everyone!

Soooo, I'm on my way too! And according to the timetable (...) I should arrive at 2000!

[exhales deeply]

Sorry I have slipped back under the radar after my posts a couple of weeks (months?) back. My final preparation courses were tough and claimed more of my 'free' time than I expected, not to mention last week, which was my first week as an intern.

I will, however, be attending the Bash as I'm not on call during the weekend of the Bash!

I will be coming Saturday and Sunday, and I am deciding on whether or not I'll travel on Friday night.

I am unfortunately not aware of the current sleeping arrangements, so if anyone could fill me in on that it'd be great :)

I turned in my thesis today.

I just found out I passed my exam last Friday, which means I *finally* get to start my internships!

Yes, good ol' 6th edition and the fusillade rule that fidelis so Catoly referenced.

I thought that was hilarious. I wasn't even aware the Dutch used Skates as their means of commuting, but there you go! Boredly sliding along the Grachten, awkwardly blade-stomping through supermarkets. A picturesque winter wonderland!
Yes, I also liked how he played off skating the Elfstedentocht as something that would occur as a necessity, instead of an incredible achievement. I think he went to visit our Rijksmuseum in 2009 and thought Henk Avercamp is contemporary artist.

I mean, I haven't been able to go skating for three years. Not upset about that at all, by the way.

Well, he used a lot of words for something so basic as speed skating. I only could read about 7 paragraphs, before I quit. Beside being a bit stereotypical, he was quite positive about it.
You missed the point  :-) His stereotypes make no sense at all. What he points out about skating as a method of transport may have been true up to ~100 years ago, but now? Nope. Nope nope nope. I mean, we drive to the best skating spots.. So yeah. He even claims we skate more than we walk- we don't have the climate for that.

Now, if he were to make this case about cycling, he'd have a point. Although that sport of course diminished approximately 70 years ago  :engel:

Ouch, GP, ouch.


What. In. The. Hell. I just can't even begin to comprehend the stupidity of the author. This may not be the best thread for this, but I couldn't find a better one and I didn't feel like starting a new one.

I mean, I just don't even.... Just what.

My mom just found the flashlight I've been missing for two months (fell out of my packet whilst borrowing their car) and she gave me a memory foam pillow when I mentioned I was thinking about buying one (didn't know they had one leftover)  :happy:

Man, I'm getting excited.

A mother and her young inquisitive son were flying Singapore Airlines from Singapore to New York.
The son, who had been looking out the window, turned to his mother and asked, "If dogs have baby dogs and cats have baby cats, why don't planes have baby planes?"

The mother, who couldn't think of an answer, told her son to ask the pretty flight attendant.

So, the boy dutifully walked up the aisle and asked the flight attendant, "If dogs have baby dogs and cats have baby cats, why don't planes have baby planes?"

"Did your mother tell you to ask me that?" the attendant asked the lad.

The little boy admitted that she did.

"Well, then, tell your mother there are no baby planes because Singapore Airlines always pulls out on time," said the pretty flight attendant. "I'm sure she won't have any trouble explaining that to you."

Very nice  :happy:

Siby, isn't there someone in your neighbourhood who actually works with steel? All my movement trays are galvanized steel, but I didn't cut them myself- I called up a few steel shops and found one that was willing to spend 5 minutes for a small customer instead of an industrial one. They cut all of the sheets for me, I drove up and paid 15 for the tip jar. I suppose anyone who uses the big steel plates on a regular basis would be able to help you out with this.

Don't party with a lot of booze to celebrate your day 1 performance.
Wrong. Definitely do this. Just drink more during day 2, it'll allow for more creative tactics.

I might have that on my pc, replying so I'll have a look when I'm back home.

@Obi: I read your topic on the briefcase and I like it.
I'm gonna try that. I figure it will be two birds with one stone because it will be nice if I magnetise movement trays too.  :biggriin:

Thanks y'all!
Cool, good luck!

How well does the Empire Archer/Huntsmen set scale with the State Troops, Pistoliers, etc?  I was thinking about using Archer bodies in order to make some custom Witch Hunters but would like to know if they scale properly with the other sets before purchasing some.
Doing that myself, IMO they scale great. You'll probably need some greenstuff to make the pistolier arms fit sometimes though, or you'll have some very limited poses.

What is your mode of transport ?

Car, public transport, bike ?

Because, if car, magnetise your army, put it on trays and use simple plastic boxes ( http://www.sunware.com ). It's what I do.
I go by bike to my local gaming club every week. So magnetised does't seem a good idea I think.
Thanks for the input. I will check them out.   :happy:

See my post above, briefcases are perfect for a bike  :-)


Proposed House rules :

*TLoS gets kicked. Every troop type/terrain piece gets a height, you block line of sight to anything equal or lower than your own height+the height of what you're standing on.
*Terrain is normal, unless you roll a six on the magical test (a die roll made before deployment)
*When attacked in the flank by "a unit with at least +1 rank bonus", you not only lose rank bonus, but you lose steadfast too. A unit that is itself disrupted cannot disrupt another.
*MR gives you (and your unit) a ward against the uber killy spells like dwellers.
*Spells that affect every model in a unit allow LO,S! rolls if the usual criteria for that roll are met.
*Bound items require no dice to cast, but are depleted if you don't make the casting roll on a D6+2 (not using dice from the power pool)
*Maximum charge range for any unit is M x3. Calculations are made as current rules, but capped.
Agreed, though I'd personally prefer a +2 bonus necessary for infantry and +1 for cavalry to disrupt steadfast. Could you clarify what you mean by 'depleted' about the bound spells?

Wow... No Questing Knights anymore either- and no rare units at all.  I really hope it's because they're getting a new line.

Magnetised briefcase- safe for flying too. (Travelled across the Atlantic &back twice, not a single problem).

Good tip, that last one. Makes an otherwise useless spell somewhat useful! Thanks again, I guess I'll try it with and without a hurricanium   :happy:
