  1. FFG is largely know for its licensed games, and while no doubt lucrative it would be nice if a company the size of FFG could put some efforts in world building a new universe, something unique, that’s well crafted and with its own flavour. Take a fully holistic approach, from art, graphics, background and game design - not piece meal, or regurgitative. A bit more mature in tone and direction than what we’ve been getting.
  2. Even if it’s own game it still feels a bit much so soon though, especially considering the reuse of art. It’s worse than EA and UbiSoft watering down franchises with over saturation.
  3. I’d love to see a rethink of the win conditions, there are some good user variants that should be considered.
  4. That is awesome Game definitely needs more content and a few tweaks, trouble with licenses from big companies is that it tends to kill transparency and dictate support. Fingers crossed though.
  5. Looks amazing, I’ve been a bit burnt by some of FFG’s more recent releases but this looks mint. Can’t wait to play it!
  6. I remember making a comment pre release of the expansion saying they’d have to be pretty ignorant if they didn’t make changes, at that stage thinking it’d be a given that they’d at least offer a mod of the win conditions at the least. I am honestly surprised they didn’t. I still like the idea of the game but because I enjoy playing it, not winning it, which is definitely a shame.
  7. Our local is Wednesday. I’m surprised there’s been no talk of rule or end game tweaks/alternatives with the expansion, really just seems to be additional content.
  8. I thought the zeta stuff played into the whole 50's paranoia fallout is based on pretty well personally.
  9. I think you need to be a bit careful trying to blacklist a company, I’ve always found them good to deal with and that’s as an international customer. No problems whatsoever.
  10. Hi, I just noticed that the collection fields on the IA collection builder are squashed so you can’t see the numbers properly, and everything has a value of 5. There is also a “none” entry. There was a similar problem for legion awhile back but that seems to be fixed. Thanks
  11. I think Vetnor was joking? The mod shut itself down when it heard about the release of the board game expansion fearing legal problems, Bethesda reacted and said they don’t foresee any issues with the mod or it’s name so the mod is continuing. AFAIK there’s nothing for anyone to worry about, you’d have to be a pretty rich mod team to cease and desist a company the size of Bethesda and/or FFG and hope you’d survive intact. Trolling legally like that only really works on smaller companies that will settle rather than go through the legal costs, or be tied up for years. Edit: had not seen Filters post before writing - without viewing I’d imagine it sets things straight.
  12. There would have to be a whole other level of, what's the best word, 'selectiveness', if they weren't aware of how a lot of the community felt about the way the game ends. I'd think they'll cover some changes in an article by itself, hopefully.
  13. I’d dispute that, I have a moderately small collection and will require two conversion kits. As for the GW stuff, I can only say my experiences have been better than yours, more friendly, with free stuff and cheaper. So I guess we just leave it at that.
  14. Prices must be skewered in the US for GW product, NZD buying hardcover versions of both the expanded rulebook and a codex would be $150-$170 if you didn't shop around, you should be able to get that for $120-$130 new NZD easily. Core box and two conversion kits would cost me $210-$220. So either the US prices are whack (presuming that's what you're quoting) or people are quoting extreme cases rather than the average.
  15. The person did say ‘core rulebook and your army's rule book’ so I’m not sure what’s bunk. Warhammer 40,000 is 31 years old, yes it has a lot of books, most of them are related to specific armies.
  16. Try the AoS Warscroll Builder for points by GW online, you can choose the points system from the generals handbook or skirmish, the 40k one uses the power system rather than points I believe. Printing cards, bases and making dials is achievable I guess, but breaks copyright. Legitimately you only need one expanded rule book if you really want for competitive reference. They also have a lot of terrain rules on their site, even a collated PDF. You can generally download Warscrolls and rules from the product page. There seems to be free scenarios for 40k but I'm not sure about AoS unless you get them from terrain specific rules. I do get what you are saying, it's not as easy as they make out, but I'm not so sure it's as hard as is made out either.
  17. You should have enough between the books you own and the rules downloads to not be locked out of playing. You can always get the core book which also contains over 200 pages of info if you wish. The Generals Handbook is always handy too, but let's not pretend everyone needs to have either to continue playing, you can still play with friends or groups and share the knowledge. From what I understand you still have the warscroll builder online if you're struggling with points.
  18. It does matter when people pull unfounded figures up, regardless of the threads topic. Anything written is open to be challenged if it’s incorrect or misleading. As for the threads topic itself, I personally find it a false metric, it’s really going to depend on previous investment to a system and how much needs to be converted over - which isn’t going to be the same for everyone. People feeding into it with rubbish costs of other systems are only propergating the nonsense, especially when some people really don’t seem to know what they’re talking about.
  19. I shouldn’t really speak for Chucklenuckle as I am only presuming, but I think that what they said was more in relation to people throwing around all sorts of unfounded whacky figures, than in direct reply to the title of the thread itself. Some people are inventing a narrative to reinforce their stance in the argument, this can go both ways but in this instance was related to the cost of converting to the new edition of AoS. That was my take anyway, Chucklenuckle can correct me if I’m wrong.
  20. New rules will be free to download, updated Warscrolls will be done for free via their app, current Battletomes and armies will still all work.
  21. New edition Rules and updated Warscrolls for armies will be made available for free via the app, current Battletomes are still valid. So you don’t really need to buy anything extra unless you want the expanded rulebook with lore and so on. No doubt that’ll also be included for next to nothing in a new two army starter box, which judging by the original box will be around the $150 NZD mark with 40-50 new miniatures as an optional. Of course the new rules could bring about other potential costs like the new spell system, but these would be purely speculative at the moment.
  22. Well, this should be interesting. All the hypothetical Warhammer cost comparisons can be a little less speculative and dated now that the new edition of Age of Sigmar has been announced.
  23. Agreed, I find the weird melting pot releases that are done for the differing Star Wars IP’s confusing and off putting. I think IA is a really good example of how not to do it imo.
  24. Some people start acting a bit weird and tribal when they think their hobby is under attack. Just stick to facts, don’t get dragged into anyone’s silliness, and you’ll be fine.
  25. Rather than argue about it, check out the Warhammer 40,000: First Strike Introductory set which I can get cheaper new for comparison. The line of debate it pretty fruitless though, it tends to ignore the problem most people perceive as exitising, it’s not a what game can you start with cheaper issue.
