    Mighty Martin got a reaction from TheRandomFish in Who wins combat   
    https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2214677/who-wins-combat
     
    This is the answer
    During a combat, the current player is the attacker. The patrol, contact, encounter card, job card or other player that the attacker is having a combat with is the defender ( P4 Rules Reference )

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from Sephlar in Disappointed in component quality   
    I was pleased with the components I received, I’m on my third game and nothing has caused a problem for me so far, the card art is great and everything was clear for the rules. All cardboard pieces punched well without tearing. I had an issue where cutting in the past, it wasn’t done well at the factory and the top layer tore from the counter and I have to work some magic glueing it all back in place. However, nothing like that here so I was pleased.

    I have never used music with decent but a few years ago I used conan the barbarian soundtrack, well some of the tracks anyway while playing advanced heroquest, played low volume it added a lot of atmosphere.

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from MeeKey in Cover conflict / ability argent use   
    If an ability or card stats that it ignore cover or cover is ignored it means a figure that would normally be able to claim cover, now cannot, so only one card can be drawn for defence. I can't even imagine how it could be interpreted to allow line of sight through walls. If so wouldn't that be an ability that ignores all terrain and walls?

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from MeeKey in DOOM additions you would like to see   
    Hi, I would like to see development of an online Operations and missions editor, similar to descent. So we can share some home-brewed content easily and add to the two operations and 12 mission from the base game. Extra dice sets would be good. The extra demons already mentioned and along with them some extra counters like some more stun and portal counters, med packs etc.

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from Torpid Rebel in The prices are outrageous   
    I just noticed on UK Games Workshop "Warhammer Age of Sigmar Starter Bundle" at £105.40 ($131.6) - includes 47 Citadel miniatures, glue, clippers, brush and 13 paints, and undercoat. The figures are stunning.
    Perhaps FFG could also support the other side of the minature gaming hobby, with some paints/tools ect and look at the level of detail against GW or reflect this in costs. Just a thought, if players are returning to minature games of this nature from a long break (like me) or just starting out they will need a game and also the tools/paints. GW looks like they are offering this and at a great cost with their starter bundle.

    I m not bothered about games having apps. I can usually design some way to play solo or coop with out the digital age. One aspect of software is at some point it will stop being supported and get left behind. If your enjoyment is relying entirely on the support of a app it will have a life span. Where as I have games over 25 year's old that I can still play with equal enjoyment from the first day I started playing them. I don't buy games that require apps to play for this reason, but welcome apps that enhance game play as long as they are either free or have a reasonable price.

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from dewbie420 in thoughts and question   
    I like the simplicity of the game, I can imagine this one will be ideal to play at the start of a gaming night to get things rolling. I like the press your luck element, but I am a little curious if you are only permitted to stop rolling after you have rolled the white tree, as the review implies and you have to keep rolling regardless putting aside results until you roll the last die. I hope the box size isn't very big as I am running out of space on my games shelf and from the picture it's looking like a standard size.
    I will be adding this to my collection When its out as I love lotr and want more games that I can play with friends with out a long session of explaining rules.

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from twincast in GW and FFG end partnership like expected...   
    I had read online that GW had moved stores into smaller shop that were cheaper and had a single manager running entire stores on their own to save on running costs. Maybe these changes were specific to certain countries, I am not sure.
     
    from http://www.iii.co.uk/news-opinion/richard-beddard/games-workshop%3A-denial
    "It’s just completed a multi-year store rationalisation program, relocating to smaller, cheaper premises, and converting stores into low-cost one-man operations. The strategy was a response to a period of expansion when higher costs almost completely stymied profit, and it successfully restored profitability at Games Workshop."

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from Jut in Was hoping for pre-painted   
    I have reached an age now where I just can't afford the time to paint tons of models. I can can paint well, but I am slow and so I am one of those also looking for games straight out of the box. The more detail they put into these miniatures, the more they cost and the more time I have to spend getting the paint job just right, or I will feel I have wasted my money rushing. I guess these days my hobby is to play games instead of a hobby painting. If I decide to play this I will probably play it unpainted, but it will depend on assembly of the models. If it follows the trend of multiple parts that need removing from spruces and lots of cleaning and glueing I will have to pass. If it follows a trend of the small figures being fully assembled and just the larger ones needing limited assembly I might be interested. I started war gaming with WFB 3rd Edition, the models were lead and tin, no plastic in sight, we just glued to a base and tickled the mold flashing off with a small file and you was good to go, ready for the prime. Your lead army was heavy and solid, but no where near as detailed as the plastic kits that are around now. If on the other hand FFG released a deluxe version with the models already to go, painted and all, would be a better option for an old git like me, who has painted one model too many over the last 30 years. My last thoughts on this is a hope that FFG is not venturing into miniatures the same way GW and making their games portfolio all about miniatures. At this moment in time it does not seem that it is, but there used to be a time (many years ago now) that GW was more about the games and less about the miniatures. Long live the FFG empire as we know it today.

    Mighty Martin reacted to BigKahuna in Weird but interesting choice from FFG   
    I'm the opposite of excited about this announcement, it's rather disappointing that "The Big One" for FFG at Gencon is a unpainted war miniatures game based on their rather uninspiring fantasy world.   The whole reason FFG's has held up so well over the last few years is there pre-painted miniature games and fantastic board and card games.  The unpainted war miniatures hobby is an entirely different audience and really market all together.  I wish them the best but I think the large majority of FFG fans are gamers, not mini paint hobbyist, I'm not sure there is going to be a sufficient audience for this game.  I also don't think it will be much of a draw for Warhammer Fantasy players.  More importantly managing an unpainted miniatures war game/franchise is an expensive en-devour and will likely pull resources from FFG I think they could have put to much better use.

    Some of the figures coming from FFG are looking really stunning and very manageable to paint. I bought some GW figures about a year ago, for an Advanced Heroquest game I was running and found some of the detail was making the paint job very complicated. I found that old GW figures from the MB heroquest game came out looking a lot better than my new GW figures because of over detail, I don't know if anyone else has found this to be a problem or if its just me, but I prefer the FFG figures these days over GW. So to confirm my point on the discussion over this thread, can FFG produce a miniature based game, **** right they can and have been doing so over the last 3-4 years that I know of and have been playing their games.
     
    On this new game, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Thanks to FFG for picking up the slack from GW who once used to make great games and now just make miniatures.

    Mighty Martin got a reaction from LilDrake in First game was too easy, I think I did something wrong - some rules questions..   
    I think you may have fudged the range rule of the grenade, can't be sure as I haven't checked the AI card you described. But if it was a bolo grenade used, the range you can throw it is 2 areas and if the locusts have been placed 4 areas away, the grenade wouldn't reach. Also did you roll for the grenade and then make separate defense rolls for each locust effected in the blast area targeted.
     
    Hope this Helps, I must add I am a new player to this game also, so I hope I have explained things properly
