What now?............................................

Post  Matt Varnish on Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:40 am

So Ive finished off my Napoleonics (well.. finished what I wanted to finish for now) and also finished my SAGA 6pts.   What should I do next?  What should we PLAY next?  That game, not sure if youve heard of it, Flames of War?  Team Yankee?    I ordered up some Romans so I'll be painting those up slowly over the year so that I can fight vs Scott when he comes back...

Just unsure what to work on next.  Maybe.. with cdn nationals coming I should crack open the V4 late war conversion books? haha.

I hear there is a new game out there called Warhammer 40K Edition 8 and the basic rules are free.

Just messing with you.

What about the American Revolution? You could still use Black Powder. Once I'm done painting my KGL I would be interested.

Maybe I'll find someone to go up against your Brits. Boers? Sikhs? Sepoys?

Re: warmahordes.. I dont like the game of warmahordes enough to get into that again. 1812.. well same time period as napoleonics, so I dont mind playing but not sure the french were there so much.

Fun Fact: Warlord Games sucks. So I ordered 6 weeks ago the 'To Kill a King' English Civil War book from FDB. 2 weeks ago, after asking about when I could expect my book to come in and was told by FDB that it hadnt been yet, because they were trying to minimize the shipping, I was peeved, and ordered it myself from Warlord Games UK, in order to get the free model, and while at it ordered the Hail Caesar book (and free Centurion Titus Adraxas model) and 2 bolt throwers and some roman cavalry. Now I know why FDB wanted to have more Bolt Action orders to minimize shipping. I had to pay 45$ in customs.

Open my box for what was supposed to be chaffee-esque miniatures (sorry Matt) and come to find the 3 loose sprues for my bolt throwers (Called scorpions in roman) werent in a box, so were loose inside the box, with 2 heavy books to smash them around in. Damage not too severe but still. My ECW book (soft cover) was damaged on both top corner and bottom middle, and the box of ROMAN cavalry I ordered was CELT cavalry.

Huh... Suddenly glad I didn't put an order in directly with Warlord Games...

Picked up some 40k. 

What scale Romans? 28mm I'm assuming?

I got a bunch of 15mm Carthaginians that I should toss together.

I hear good things about 40k, I'm looking forward to giving it a try,

It's too bad no one is up for Warmahordes, it's a great game, that said if I wanted to make the time I am sure I could find a game at one of the Flags

I still enjoy Warmachine - I play (when I can) at OutoftheBox in Bells Corners Tuesday nights (alternating with our Pathfinder game)

In regards to 40k, I've read its quite abstract now...not sure what to make of that...

I was told by Joanna at GW that it plays very similar to the old game, but it's alot faster..

I don't know what that means either, I wonder if things are just more deadly then before or something,

Also they have two systems for setting game values, you can play with points or power level, apparently points are not very balanced, but power level is pretty good.

Wasn't there something about a Necromunda-style 40k variant? That would be interesting than going full bore.

40k Armageddon. It's actually pretty good. I "played" in the FDB league and bought the rulebook. If I ever make it out to a FNF, I'll bring it along. But it totally is a gateway drug back into GW games...

I want to try Armageddon. The guys in Denmark play and its easy to transport an army overseas. I used to do all right the few times I played kill team.

Armegedon sounds cool, I just didn't don't have any interest in getting it unless people going to play it,

I tried a small 40k game tonight with a buddy,

Pretty fun, I am going to make a 1500 point list and play again,

Is there any way of using the old gangs though? I liked the gang warfare aspect of Necro. "Puto, comin' atcha !"
