The Count's Tavern / Bad Dream
« on: December 28, 2018, 12:43:47 PM »
Sooo….Last night my dream started off by being invited to Canada to display the Steve B collection. After I was shown to the area to display the collection by some very nice Canadians, I stated I need to go to the bathroom; these nice Canadians said it was outside.  When I (by the way the bathroom was a small shack and it was cold and snowy, go figure) anyways, when I got back into the event center everyone was GONE!! The collection was gone!! They took my CAR, and somehow my wallet was stolen!!!  … I felt so betrayed, cold, and I heard wolves…  :unsure:

Recently, I got to do a once in a life time visit to a gentleman who has, arguably, the largest Warhammer collection in the world especially our beloved Empire! Steveb is not only a great miniature collector but human being, with many stories of his life, military, and craft.  He told Grutch that this site has been a haven for him, as he can share and be inspired by all of us who love this hobby.  Steve, unfortunately, is very sick and I wanted to publicly start this thread so we can show him much love and support through this trying time.


Steve you will always be the craziest miniature madman I know  :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

Much love and support for you and your wife

The Count's Tavern / 13 Rumored New Fantasy series ????
« on: May 20, 2018, 01:45:15 PM »
13 Fantasy series based on popular books that soon could be made into series

1-Good Omens (2019) Based on: The 1990 novel by the late Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (or vice-versa, depending on which cover you bought). Set in a world where biblical legends are true, the keeper of the east gate of Heaven and the Serpent from the Garden of Eden unite to prevent the apocalypse as they’ve come to enjoy their quaint lives in the United Kingdom.

2-His Dark Materials (TBD) Based on: Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy — Northern Lights (published in the North America as The Golden Compass and adapted into a movie of the same name, pictured above), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass — centers on two children who grow up while journeying across parallel worlds, where they encounter talking armored bears and, of course, our world. Pullman’s story upends fantasy conventions and revolves on the notion that Original Sin is one of mankind’s greatest qualities.

3-The Watch (TBD) Based on: Elements from the 41 Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett. Set on a world that is really a disc held in place by four elephants standing on the back of a turtle, Discworld is both a parody of early fantasy works and a sweeping universe in its own right. Thanks to the series, Prachett was the U.K.’s best-selling author in the 1990s. While Discworld does not tell one single overarching tale, its characters weave in and out of story lines, with characters like Death receiving major ongoing tales and constant cameos.
 
4-Game of Thrones Prequels (TBD) Based on: The yarns of history or myth A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin likes to tell while characters eat sweet meats and plot their next move in the Game of Thrones. Also based on the stories he tells his audience while not finishing The Winds of Winter.

5-Conan (TBD) Based on: The stories of Robert E. Howard featuring Conan the Cimmerian who roamed a fictional “Hyborian Age” said to occur after the destruction of Atlantis, but before the rise of “modern” civilization. An accomplished warrior in his teens, Conan became a pirate, thief and mercenary before claiming the throne of Aquilonia in his forties by strangling the man who was sitting in it at the time.

6-The Wheel of Time (TBD)  :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: Based on: The epic fantasy series by Robert Jordan and concluded by Brandon Sanderson — whose own Mistborn series is getting the film-franchise treatment — after Jordan’s death in 2007. Set in a world that is both Earth’s distant past and far future, the cycle of time is threatened by a Shadow of ultimate evil. It searches for “The Dragon Reborn,” a being of light fated to clash with the Shadow. Various enemies and allies of both sides appear as the main characters learn more about their fate and even cross into parallel worlds. Each book in the latter half of the series — books eight through 14 — hit No. 1 on The New York Times Best Seller list.

7-Lord of the Rings (TBD) Based on: J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, an epic tale of four Hobbits, a Wizard, an Elf, two Men and a Dwarf attempting to destroy the Dark Lord Sauron’s master weapon without letting him discover their plan. A war across most of Middle-earth ensues.

8-The Dark Tower (TBD) Based on: Stephen King’s flagship fantasy series The Dark Tower. Across eight novels, a number of short stories and numerous connections to his other writings, the series details the journey of gunslinger Roland and his band of friends as they attempt to reach the Dark Tower — anchor point of the multiverse — before the Man in Black can destroy it. Once there, Roland discovers he’s played out this cycle before, clearing the way for film and television adaptations to be sequels of the original novel series.

9-Gormenghast (TBD) Based on: Mervyn Peake’s mid-20th century novel trilogy — Titus Groan, Gormenghast, and Titus Alone — and the incomplete follow-ups centering on Titus Goran, reluctant heir to the immense Castle Gormenghast and the surrounding domain. But even as Titus grows up knowing he must eventually become a ruler, an ambitious kitchen boy plots his downfall.

10-Cursed (TBD) Based on: The forthcoming novel by The Cape creator Tom Wheeler and illustrated by 300’s Frank Miller. It is a retelling of the Arthur legend though the eyes of Nimue, the Lady of the Lake as she journeys to deliver a sword to the wizard Merlin. Along for the ride is a young mercenary named Arthur.

11-The King Killer Chronicles (TBD) Based on: Patrick Rothfuss’s as-yet incomplete trilogy – which began with The Name of the Wind and continued in The Wise Man’s Fear – and other works Rothfuss set in the same reality. The main series tells the tale of a famed scribe and biographer listening to the stories of an adventurer, arcanist, and musician named Kvothe, who appears to have settled into a retirement as an innkeeper.

12-The Witcher (TBD) Based on: Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher novels and short stories centering on Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher who roams The Continent hunting legendary monsters and getting involved in geopolitical upsets (in spite of his own political neutrality). He eventually adopts Ciri, the princess of Cintra with ability to transverse space and time, and trains her as a Witcher.

13-The Broken Earth (TBD) Based on: N.K. Jemisin’s novels about a world in which the single supercontinent, Stillness, is ravaged every few centuries by a dramatic climate change known as “The Fifth Season.” The most recent Fifth Season proved to be particularly bad, leading some to believe the end is at hand. The society of Stillness is broken into races, castes and species. Those divisions help and hinder the people’s efforts to weather the possible apocalypse. Set against this landscape is the tale of three women with the power to both calm and agitate seismic activity under Stillness. The first two books in the series, The Fifth Season and The Obelisk Gate, won the Hugo Award for best novel in 2015 and 2016.

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!!! It has come to the attention of agents of Sigmar that Zak has been accused of chaos worshiping to include summoning chaos minions, eating babies, and conducting dark rituals otherwise deemed very nasty by Imperial law and Canada; He is now within custody of the Witch hunter’s guild awaiting trial by Arch-Lector Mathi Alfblut of the cult of Sigmar. 
This trial will be played out with a live audience of players, sooo we need volunteers to be the following:
 
 1-Narrator (GM) me

 2-Judge:  Arch Lector Mathi Alfblut

 3-Defense : The Honorable Defense Lawyer: Gankom

 4-Prosecutor : The Arch Lector will prosecute the scum

 5-Jury members Warlord the Rat Catcher,Artobans the Agitator, BAWTRM the Bone Picker, Commandant the Charcoal-Burner, Valmir the Barber-Surgeon
 
 6-Witch hunter ...The Mighty Witch Hunter Cannonofdoom

 7- Representative of the College of Wizards  :Ohmy: ( twists!)  ( NPC)
 
 8-Accused Zak (NPC)
 
I will message those player characters with information they have in order to bring evidence to the court. ( or i can do it openly)  As well as, other nasty situations they may run into. Let the game begin plus you get to roast zak what more could you want!! Lol If you have an idea for a character not listed let me know !!! ............All characters must be from the old world Empire, with backgrounds that reflect this, we will see how this story takes shape!!

WHFB The Electors' Forum / White Dwarf?
« on: April 11, 2015, 12:23:50 AM »
Nothing about 9th ED here, just some info on White Dwarf and Visions.


 I saw this over in the Warhammer Forum in this thread:


http://warhammer.org.uk/phpBB/viewto...8582&start=120

Not sure if those folks quoted are on here as well. I appologize if I steped on any toes.

 Dear subscriber,

 Thank you for your part in Warhammer:Visions' ongoing success - each month we work hard to produce a magazine full to the brim with the wonder of beautifully-painted Citadel miniatures, and your subscription means a lot to us. We are also constantly trying to improve on what we've made, and so from issue 16, Warhammer: Visions will be reborn in a stunning new format, one that almost twice the size of the current magazine. Between its covers you'll find the same fantastic content, from the most exciting latest releases to Army of the Month, the belief beggaring brilliance of the best Golden Demon entries, the weird and wonderful world of Blanchitsu, and much, much more besides...along with some new features, too.

 Note goes on to say that price will not be increasing and was issued under the name of Jes Bickham, Editor


I guess they are redoing the magazine once again, this is one of the biggest fails GW has done , killed the white dwarf ...man, remember the 90's editions the best there was IMO  :::cheers:::

Good morning everyone.
 I'm new to the forum and I am NO rumormonger with any inside knowledge of gw, so take that as what it probably is... nothing definitely sure, just a speculation about something I heard...
 Well a friend of mine spoke to his local gw manager asking him about the 9 ed release date (he doesn't follow the rumor scene, so he wasn't aware they get no info from the HQ).
 BUT! The gw manager said something pretty interesting (or at least I believe it is)... He asked for some holidays in may, and the answer from his boss (don't know who or where, I supposed Nottingham but maybe it's not how it works) was that was HIGHLY recommended not to take any holiday in may... Now he explained to my friend that this normally happens when there is a big launch on the horizon... So I made 2+2 and thought to share it with you guys.
 Don't harm the messenger, please!


( this has been the second time this rumor has floated in, from 2 different sources....zak )

GW has started to recall fantasy products from stores, so I'd say this sounds accurate.  
 
In the continental Europe part of GW, there are red and amber dates. I don't know about UK or US

Amber dates are reserved for Codex books or other, bigger than usual weekly releases. Something that peeks many peoples interest. The last one was 2 weeks back, when they releases the Archaon book. These dates are the release date, not the preorder date. The next is two weeks from tomorrow, and probably marks the AdMech Codex for 40k.
Currently, there are 4 red dates, that signify something BIG for the stores. One early July, one mid June, and both the 2nd and the 9th of may. Two consecutive red dates were not done since the relase of the 6th Edition 40k rulebook. So, whatever it is, GW believes it will be a very high-traffic release for their stores. Bigger then the AdMech Codex or the End Times books.


( I don't know if this is true... zak
