Sounds like you've been reading his notebook :P

@Phil: oh well, in 2018 when I finally get round to it I'll have to grab a PHR force as well.....shucks ;)


That's about right, on all counts!!

On a separate note (sorry)-I just played my first game of 6th! 2k, BA and SoB vs DE. I enjoyed it. The obvious flaws are there, but was no less enjoyable than before. St. celestine is rather underpriced, but she was on my side, so not complaining!?

I've since got the Scourge starter set and then the 2=player start box game at Salute last year... but both are still unopened. I've just got too many games to play and only one evening a week to play them :(

Not sure I understand where the fat is. My rulebook is the 1.1 but as far as I know that only added an index, some errata, and a table it two.

The rules section of the book is small. I first thought how can it have the depth and complexity then? But it does. I found the rules to be quite concise. As I was reading them I was asking questions on their forum. I think I only needed to ask 3 or 4 things. In fact I've posted more answers to rules questions than asked them. Lol

I read the v1.0 book. There were tons of typos in it but I also felt that some rules were unnecessary (don't ask what they were because it's was about 2 years ago!).

So when are you going to start stocking it? :)

Exactly!

I got the same ribbing from the club I joined recently...

That said, no real loss - I have over 4k points of SM to use. It looks like the new ruleset will allow me to throw in all my IG/AM!?

If anyone is looking at starting or expanding a scourge force, I am selling all the models from the new starter set (so the resin/plastic rather than outright resin). I'm sure we could come to an agreement on price ;)

Here's the latest video from some guys at Valhalla interviewing Dave, the developer and Gary from feit212. Then there's a battle report on their channel that's worth a watch also.

Not looking to stocking it presently as the response from the small numbers I spoke to at the club was negative. If the guys who play 40k at the club start looking into it though I would consider it then.

Yeah I found you and commented on your post after I asked.

My local store does stock DzC and has a pretty good range in. As far as I am aware they will post stuff if asked. I donno if I am allowed to post details here with GF being kinda linked to AoS forum?

And spack being a partner in GF. ;)

Just pm MarkB the details. Although he's probably better off getting from thetrolltrader I think he's called on eBay like me.

thetrolltrader is a "she" FYI ;) I have had excellent service from them when acquiring Malifaux stuff.

Yeah I've used TrollTreader a number of times for different things. Very reliable. And I love the wacky feed back they leave, lol. Things like; 'my pet crab likes you. He says you're a good eBayer'

Just played my first 1500 point game tonight. It was a great game and lived up to the hype. There will be more games definitely and very soon. :)
