My resolution is to try and find a way to make battle reports more interesting and not be too overwhelming time wise.

...  I've been doing a lot of TTRPG lately.  I've done Apocalypse World, Blades in the Dark and some D&D 5th...

Maybe we should make a thread to share war stories?

Best,
-BT

Had my first session of D&D tonight. Currently playing a Ranger with a "Raised by Wolves" style backstory, and a flaw of believing in survival of the fittest. Great mix for a Chaotic Neutral character.


For my dwarf barbarian that's the background I rolled. I decided to take the path of the wolf features because of it, and it was really fun... until the dm decided at level 5 that the campaign which has a druid, a ranger, a dwarf barbarian raised by wolves, and a wood elf cleric will take place entirely in one city, no matter how hard we try to leave.

I think my aim for the year is going to be pretty minimal. Probably paint up my Ork combat patrol (big mek, 3 kanz, a few grotz, maybe some boyz though I'm trying to keep the mek & grot theme).

I'm considering necrons but I'm debating what metallic colour to go for, and what the light colour on the mode should be. Purple or a cold blue are quite tempting.

On the IG side of things I'd like to get some more cadians painted up, but suspect that won't happen!

And for Tyranids I have nearly two full space hulk stealer sets, a termagant brood, and a tervigon. They could do with painting but I can't decide on a scheme. Ideally it should be one with a fairly quick time per gaunt, and per gargoyle, so I can get lots of numbers into the army. I would really like a full Gargoyle brood. They look so menacing. But they'd probably need a companion flyrant or two to be really menacing.

Anyone have any thoughts?
Try websites like this: http://htmlcolorcodes.com/color-picker/
They'll show you good colour mixes, like if a colour contrasts with it or not. If you have one, try looking for the older Citadel and Space Marine painting guides GW made a few years ago. Not the more recent smaller chunks ones, but the two full books. they'll be the best resource I reckon.

Ended up becoming a temporary guardian to a young Dwarf girl we found in a ruined temple to a goddess of death housing a dozen or so Goblins.

Managed a few one-hit kills, the first being on a sentry, the other on the end-of-dungeon "boss" XD

Oh, and one of the party kept messing with my character psychologically while at the end of it all I'm now some sort of vocal point for previously mentioned goddess of death.

Oh, become a waitress, I tip well :P

My... hobby list recently threw a wrench in its own works. I bought the shadows over hammerhal set this summer on prize support and let it gather dust ever since (using a sequel to silver tower is hard when the groups Ive played with have gotten 2/8, 4/8, 5/8, of the way through it since summer) but now I decided... well, I'm tired of playing beastclaw in aos because Im so sick of the whining about my OP army that I came close to quitting. Then I played with my phoenix guard from fantasy thinking 'well, elves don't have a full army, these will suck' at which point I got first place in 2 tournaments in a row and shelved them too. So... what does this have to do with anything?

The shadows box set comes with a unit of blood reavers, a chaos sorcerer, a unit of putrid blightkings, and a unit of kairic acolytes... also known as ~600 points of chaos. My LGS is starting a year long tournament series going 750-1k-1250-1500-1750-2k, so now seems to be the perfect time to start a new army. My problem is that I saw a great way to paint a pinkish maroon cloth, so I settled on that for cloth and liked it, then I decided to use the purplish brass from the sisters of silence for all my metallics, then decided... well, I want my army to be themed around fighting death (great timing with malign portents) so I want to paint the armor paneling bone. I thought it looked alright, nothing too amazing, and think the bone color is the problem... and upon going to a hobby shop this weekend and seeing that that's the color scheme of a group in warmachine, fell out of love with the scheme. I can't think of a color to do instead of bone that will work well with the brass and pink though, which I like. Black might work, but... black is boring and overdone. I want something neutral, because I want to play mortals of all 4 gods and have them coalesce...

Anyone have any thoughts?

Same. Mostly skeletons, at least until the new tau codex comes out.

I really love reading Big Louie, she's got the perfect level of frustration when dealing with Wingnut and the rest of WAAAGH! Grumgutz.

Also I'd forgotten that Duumrider was your universe's Deadpool with his disregard for the fourth wall.

Looking forward to reading the rest of the report, Merry Xmas.
