Hahaha,so very nice! The Dust Tactics Revised Core Set Allies, ZZ. I really prefer the Axis side, but that is just me. Some of the Allies have pretty cool models, but I had a terrible, wonderful idea for painting up the zombies given my assumption the Waffen SS is responsible for them. I also like that the Allies have looks like a Metal Slug walker.
Also worth noting is that the Warhammer world truly is "Grim and Perilous." Pathfinder and D&D are pretty Nerf sword when it comes to life and death of PCs, but Warhammer is far more gritty with the likelihood of getting whacked being fairly possible. That said, the real heroes of WHFRPG are normal everyday commoners,miners, and soldiers. Great setting for those who want a more epic feel and not really concerned with this feat or that.
I cannot speak for how ZZ is wanting to replace our wayward priest, but we all randomly generated career and chose race. I like that option myself as it is very key to the Warhammer feel.
I would say the editions are very different. FFG went in a very unique direction here, but all in all the flavor is what really matters.
You will need access to a copy of the Player's Guide. I would not have made it without ordering mine.
The dice problem is something one of the other players solved with an external roller that you will copy and paste the results of in a spoiler. Link Dice Roller
I have truly enjoyed this game and it is about to really start moving now that the characters have gotten their feet wet. I would happily play a game of Monopoly PbP with ZZ running the thing so this is no fly by night operation. The discussion thread has become a place that operates more like an abstract Facebook than a place to just talk mechanics. So if you are looking for a great game and great people this is an excellent place to find them.
Z and Fey, does Rangnir have ability to add runes to items yet? My shield is Superior Quality and thought it would make a cool storyline bit when he does acquire the means to do so.
On a separate note, I am going to full on Ork battle buggie my '68 Falcon. It is going to a perfect candidate and cost less than to buy a GW mini,lol.
We smashed through the first module of our Warhammer playtest pretty fast. I think we have gotten the kinks mostly worked out and it is a pretty fun game, though the Warhammer world is the one I enjoy above most others. Nice that the fluff pretty well rolls along no matter who is making the mechanics.
I just saw that FFG was handing the rights of Dust over to a New Zealand firm. Any word on how this is going to affect the prices of the models. Dust is pretty affordable, though some of the models are a bit more than I think is necessary like the planes. I would hate to see it jump up there with Warhammer anything.
Kill him. Otherwise we should only get Nerf swords and tickle feathers. I have no qualms about getting whacked in any game I play. People need to buck up a little. What is the worst thing that happens? He makes another character and his buddies don't go off using spells that have the potential to screw you without asking first.I bet he was loving the extra combat benefits till they turned on him, yeah? I mean, for Pete's sake it already takes several rounds to bleed out as it is. I miss lose your head crits. Now if you want a kinder,gentler monster that is your choice. But, as a player I want to face death as a very real possibility. Z almost whacked my Warhammer character, but I get the sense he held back a little....;), I would have not at all been upset as it is just good story telling. Especially in Warhammer.
