The Flood / Kill Team
« on: July 15, 2018, 06:08:55 PM »
This looks really cool; it's neat that they're making Kill Team a standalone game rather than it just being an expansion or something.




It looks a lot more manageable to play, paint, and build for too. Each side consists of five to ten models depending on the faction in question. This is a lot more manageable in terms of expense and time, as it's a lot easier to paint five or ten dudes compared to fifty for standard 40k.

The box set looks pretty neat.

These past few months I've been trying to get my brother into 40k so we have something to do together. I bought the recent Forgebane box set for us to play with, as he likes Necrons and I already had a moderately sized force of Adeptus Mechanicus dudes, and 8th edition is a lot easier to play than previous editions.

Still, I found it a bit difficult to get started because we didn't have any terrain (playing on a flat surface with no cover or buildings of any kind is boring), and it's a lot of work to build and paint even the small force of Necrons and Skitarii that came with Forgebane.

This looks like it solves a lot of those issues given the small scale and the inclusion of a game board and some terrain in the box set.

The Flood / The Horus Heresy is dying
« on: May 18, 2018, 02:41:20 PM »
The dude who did most of the work at Forge World died, and the production of their new books has slowed significantly.
In addition, loads of their kits have been discontinued, including the Legion upgrade kits and Mk. II Crusade armor.

It's a shame, I loved how The Horus Heresy had this almost historical game thing going, and the amount of detail that went into things like the army books.

The Flood / Considering taking a course on fashion

I've been interested in taking something related to fashion design next year. I'm going to work on my sketching skills before I take it, but I'd like to take a course that isn't related to history or education (my major is European History).

The Flood / Color me excited
« on: November 22, 2017, 04:59:37 PM »
June 2018 can't get here soon enough.

This was announced a month or two ago, but the cover art was just unveiled today.

Synopsis
Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader ally against a threat to the Empire in this new novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn.

The sequel to New York Times bestseller Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances will continue to follow the rise of Grand Admiral Thrawn to the heights of Imperial power—and accompany him into the past, witnessing his first encounter with the man who will one day become Darth Vader.

I just want there to be a segment where Thrawn and Vader do the good cop/bad cop routine.

The Flood / >he hasn't read Summa Theologica
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:56:15 PM »
haha, oh you deluded soul, you unenlightened pagan. no doubt you cannot perceive the obvious connection between Reason and the Divine. unlike you, I am, I daresay, a true Intellectual, and an scholar of the Science of Philosophy, a savant in the Fine Arts of Argument and Scholastic Reasoning. had you any intellect you would clearly see the superiority of Aquinas' reasoning but, it appears that our Lord in his Divine Wisdom knew that even the greatest intellect would be unable to counteract your gross incompetence. I can only assume that, had the blessed friar lived to complete his great work, he would have written an additional treatise on the ignorance of the heathen :^)

The Flood / Favorite Characters?
« on: August 21, 2017, 03:08:28 AM »
What are your favorite characters, or even characters you simply like? The list doesn't necessarily have to be in order, and the choices can be for any reason, be it nostalgia, how well written they are, or simply liking the concept behind the character. Mine are:

Darth Vader

Master Chief John-117

Doomguy (the Doom Slayer)

Boba Fett (his original incarnation; as he appeared in the 1980 version of ESB)

Chaplain Grimaldus

Batman (the TAS version of the character)

Samurai Jack

Aku

The Flood / I Just Finished "A Canticle for Leibowitz"
« on: July 21, 2017, 02:08:58 AM »


I thought it was an excellent read; I would go so far as to say it is one of my favorite science fiction novels.

For those unaware, A Canticle for Leibowitz is a 1960 science fiction novel by Walter M. Miller Jr., centering on the Albertian Order of Leibowitz, a Catholic monastic order based in the American Southwest that has dedicated itself to the preservation of knowledge in the wake of a nuclear holocaust. The novel is separated into three parts, and each part is separated by 600 years, with the novel beginning 600 years after the nuclear holocaust, or the "Flame Deluge". Thus, the events of the novel span eighteen centuries. Its themes include the relationship between church and state, humanity's tendency to repeat its own mistakes, among others. While the book as a whole can be characterized as rather melancholy, it is punctuated by many moments of dry humor, which never failed to get a chuckle out of me.

I would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Here's the summary on the back cover of my copy.
"In the Utah Desert, Brother Francis of the Albertian Order of Leibowitz has made a miraculous discovery: the relics of the martyr Isaac Leibowitz himself, including the blessed blueprint and the sacred shopping list. They may provide a bright ray of hope in a terrifying age of darkness, a time of ignorance and genetic monsters that are the unholy aftermath of the Flame Deluge. But as the spellbinding mystery at the core of this novel unfolds, it is the search itself - for meaning, for truth, for love - that offers hope to a humanity teetering on the edge of an abyss"

Oh, and I forgot to mention: the book is one of the inspirations for the Brotherhood of Steel from Fallout, which is how I first heard about the novel.

The Flood / A Fine Addition to My Collection

My newest 1/6 scale figure

Regardless of one's thoughts on the film's quality, I think that many of us can agree that the visual designs were pretty great. I liked the look of the Deathtroopers a lot (despite the edgy name) and wanted one in my small collection.

It was very enjoyable. We talked about our favorite movies (she loved The Empire Strikes Back too), our hobbies, and so forth. It was nice, I felt very comfortable talking to her, and was happy to make a new friend at the very least.

Finally stopped procrastinating and finished painting my Black Templar Sword Brother, with the exception of a couple tiny details. Now all I have to do is apply terrain to the base, do some detail work on the sword, and apply a matte lacquer spray to the miniature.

I haven't kept up with updates for a long time; has there been any notable progress?
Did the development completely crash when Rocket left?

I bought a copy a long time ago, and now have a decent PC that could actually run it well. I was wondering if it's even worth trying out again.
