    Porn Monday is a perfectly good tag [Press Conference, Closed]

    Recently, the Mods have put out the word that they would prefer that Porn Monday threads be named something else. Having the word “Porn” in the name lowers the level of discourse in Tangency. I'd argue that Porn Monday threads should remain named Porn Monday because, quiet simply, that's what...

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    Vanguard has now put up the last of their Defeat in Detail stock. I'm putting in an order shortly for some not-Termies and Not-Banshees. Wanna bet about whether my order from them or the two-month old one from Troublemaker will arrive first?

    Other inconsequential slice-of-life headcanons! (Credit to That Other Guy and Lonewolf23

    [My Little Pony] Applejack's special talent is actually her ability to create incredible alcoholic beverages, as evidenced by her incredibly popular cider and her surprisingly potent tropical fruit drinks in the comics. Half of what caused her to gain her cutie mark was realizing her...

    A few newcomer questions for MTG

    I will second both of these. Innistrad and 2013 were the only two sets that my group would do drafts of on our own. They had a good combination of obvious strategies, subtle synergies, and a nice even pace.

    Why don't more miniature companies do loads of bits?

    With old fashioned hand sculpts, I'd agree that modularity is hard to design, but a lot, if not most, companies prototype with 3d computer generated models now. Aside from issues of the warping between the original master and the final product, the design costs can't be all that high when you...

    Why don't more miniature companies do loads of bits?

    I'm sure that this is a question with a boring, practical answer, but why don't more miniatures companies give you kits that consist of tons of little bits, and tell you to go nuts with figuring out how it's supposed to all go together. Games Workshop does it, but I can't think of another...

    [KS] Dropfleet Commander

    I will admit that a game set in orbit has potential, but I don't think I'm pulling the trigger until I see a gimmick that impresses me. Plus the PHR. Boo for them being after the Shaltari.

    [Dresden Codak] Quarterly Update, first quarter 2010

    Oh, crap. I think I get how Dark Science works now. You get the answers, but you have to backfill the justification for how you got there. This could be very bad.

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    On the defensive, those would work. While on the offensive, I'm less sure of. I always thought the Imperium had a really long supply train, so that stuff would be well behind their lines. So the objectives on the Imperium's side of the board are captured, but not fully secured, objectives? That...

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    Thinking through this one, the default scenario probably represents a conflict around a fast-moving front, so the defender's important stuff hasn't had a chance to be moved yet. That implies that the best objective markers would be something semi-mobile or appears semi-randomly, so that it would...

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    More precisely, what objectives would be close enough to the battlefield that both sides can have them within walking distance of each other, while still being significant enough to warrant Titan deployment? Googling around, I think my favorite so far is a big wooden sign with "Sekrit Stuff...

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    What's everyone using to mark objectives? Usually, I've just been putting a die on an existing terrain piece on the table to mark 'em, but it lacks visual flare. Honestly, I think it may be that I don't have the imagination to figure out what would count as an objective for a pitched battle...

    STANTZ, THE LIVING EXTERMINATUS grants those who wished to purchase ersatz Orks respite. He Who Devours At A 6mm Scale has allowed Vanguard Miniatures to survive so that they may begin taking pre-orders for the fallen Troublemaker's Defeat In Detail miniatures. But beware! THE LIVING...

    I've never seen a Genestealer Cult list before. Literally - I've never seen anyone write down the stats or point values. How do they play?

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    Agreed. Looking at my usual teaching spiel, one of the things I always emphasize is that Marines at this scale are fragile, outgunned spec-ops, not invulnerable bullet sponges. Bringing the Land Raiders, which refuse to freakin' die, kind of undermines that. Plus I just got the Whirlwinds in a...

    Troublemaker Games suffered the same fate as all who defy STANTZ, THE LIVING EXTERMINATUS! Bother me not, lest I turn my gaze upon Osprey Publishing next.

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    Wow, I never realized it before, but everywhere I bought bases from used Steel Crown as their supplier. No one is left. I'm revising my teaching scenario a bit before teaching the next batch of people to play, and I wanted an opinion. I want to either include a Whirlwind or a Land Raider...

    [Warhammer - ] I think I'm officially done.

    To be fair, most of the IP GW seems to care about is more visual design and names than anything the fans care about. See again the idea that the company exists to sell models. I've been looking for a better cite on the licensing strategy than the Investor World article from some months back...

    40k is Going Nuts

    Bit of headcanon that just popped in there: The Enlightened Democratic Republic of the Greater Good is called the Tau Empire by the forces of man because Low Gothic actually lacks a word for "democracy," although they do have at least 37 words for "despotism." None of this changes the fact that...

    [Epic 40k] If one were to start an epic army...

    I use these: http://www.litko.net/categories/Tokens-%26-Markers/Blast-Burn-Smoke/ The small sized ones are about the right scale, but I mix in a few mediums for visual variety. Oh, and don't sweat the Gargant's appearance. It's not like the Orks have blueprints they're working from.
