The Count's Tavern / 2017 Holiday Frenzy Deals
« Last post by ZeroTwentythree on Today at 04:03:08 AM »
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Drownig in Debt Tuesday... whatever. How about a thread to share miniatures & gaming deals this week? (I feel so dirty suggesting this...)*

The emails are already coming in, so I'll start...

Ral Partha Europe sent an advance email with a discount code, in addition to whatever other deals they may be offering:

This event was awesome! We played Triumph and Treachery, Escalation games (750, 1500, 2000, 2500), and Storm of Magic. The overall winner had the highest score across the 3 events. Each year, us over at the Eighth Edition forum cook up a really fun weekend of gaming.

Check out event coverage over at the EEFL forum.

Looks like a beast!

Another thing. Have you looked beyond GW? It occurred to me that Khador from Warmachine may serve your purposes, if selecting the more mundane and less steampunky models. If not else then as bases for conversions. This gentleman, for example:

Awesome project! Do you have any particular army composition you are aiming for, or are you just doing it unit by unit? Do you intend to keep using KoW rules?

It recently occurred to me that T9A Empire would work decently for a Kislevite army. They can get fast cavalry with heavy armour, spear and shield, which should be ideal for representing winged hussars. They get volley guns. Handgunner detachments will get a proper buff in T9A 2.0, that could be used to represent massed streltsy musketry. Only thing I can't think of how to place would be kossars, not if you'd want them to have both proper ability at archery and close combat.

Iconic masters has only been out since Friday, so I think austere command should get cheaper than that! I looked at Teferi earlier and then again just now and there are already newer listings at lower prices.

Yes, the hybrid filters desperately need a reprint. Graven Cairns was a special case because it was one of the Future Sight weird duals, and that's the cycle they put in Iconic Masters. So I don't think it precludes a proper reprint later. They could even put the enemy-paired ones in Rivals, since standard does need another enemy-paired cycle. I'm expecting enemy check-lands though.

Immortal sun seems staple-tastic.
I wish the dinosaur looked more like a dinosaur!

seen austere on ebay for 3.80.

tempting!


they need to reprint all those hybrid filters. The fact they've done that one in iconic makes me think it wont be in rivals :( I love immortal sun.

My last post I mentioned the next few codices to be released; here is the latest correction:


Chaos Daemons      2018
Dark Angels      December 2017
Blood Angels      December 2017
Tyranids              November 2017
Craftworlds           October 2017
Astra Militarum           October 2017
Adeptus Mechanicus   September 2017
Death Guard      September 2017
Grey Knights      August 2017
Chaos Space Marines   August 2017
Space Marines      July 2017

I remember reading back in June/July that there would be 11 codices before the end of the year, looks like were only getting ten. I'm not complaining, as I remember when we were lucky to get three or four in a whole year.  :-D
