  1. Speaking for myself and my gaming group; we play BC mainly as a 'release' after playing Rogue Trader or another game for a extended period of time. Being the GM, it is pretty much a full on free-for-all when I pull out the BC manual and screen; my friend's are all smiling and planning on much backstabbing, etc. That way the group can vent all of their simmering rage, hated, etc. that they had to keep in check during our RT campaign. It may not be the best use of BC, but it's working for the time being (at least to buy me time to finish a actual campaign). And for clarification, the group is playing as mainly Night Lords space Marines; with some Hereteks and human support crew along to handle the 'lower' duties like keeping everyone fed and full of ammunition.
  2. Don't let the misinformed lapdogs of the corpse emperor see this or we're all mucked up! http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/showthread.php?52397-Abaddon-s-40K-Bolter-Is-Rubbish
  3. Thanks so much for posting this! I had long thought all of the collector's editions gone into the warp; consumed by the insatiable hunger of various 40k minions. I just ordered two; one for me (my own BC copy is starting to wear after 4 years) and one for a Christmas present.
  4. Guess I'll toss my favorite 'bad guy' into the ring. Having played a variety of games (RPG and video type) since 1977; I've had the fun of tossing and refining various nefarious types to toss them at a group of player characters. Then a couple years ago I found what I consider to be the 'ultimate' fun, witty bad guy. Put him into BC and I could see him honestly as a Pirate Prince of the Ragged Helix with no trouble whatsoever; either that or a fallen Rogue Trader. What's his name? I know a lot of you have heard of him before. His name is Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2 (a video game); and I've put him into my own campaign to taunt and foil the PC's plans. Oh, he's a ass-hat from day one; but you can never meet a better 'good guy (in his mind, he's good)' in your life! If you don't know who he is; just hit up a video site and search for Handsome Jack; you'll be laughing and getting ideas nonstop! Here's one to get you started; my personal favorite story of his.
  5. Well, finally got the ToD in the mail last week. Many thanks to FFG for not bringing it to GenCon for purchase; guess you had too many star wars mini's to pack! Having a few months to read through this post surgery; I sure am glad I got this off of Amazon at 50% off or I'd have just thrown it away for complete lack of usefulness. Sorry, playing the old DoW II; my favorite character was always the plauge marine; able to shrug off insane damage and just plod ahead, his bilew spewer spraying to and fro; spreading Grandpa's gifts about willy-nilly! For a book of Nurgle that is mainly about 20% about nurgle with 80% bull thrown in as filler and end-game crap; I'm very saddened by this book. Not one bile spewer huh? Guess that's the new canon in 40k; just shitcan any weapon that may take more than 5 min to toss some stats at it. Looks like I'm going back to my old BC group and load up our daemonic war engine with babies and shoot them at the Imp's just for fun!

  7. Cool beans; much appreciated! My ocd for timelines is now happy!
  8. Hey everyone, I was fleshing out the warrant of trade for a upcoming campaign; and realized that a important facet was to give some historical basis for the warrant. Namely a few notable voyages, etc. But I didn't want to over write anything canon. I know it's not a carved in stone date; but I'd just like to know the rough time/year the current 40k universe is in right now.; it'll scratch that itch in my head that's bugging the heck outta me! Thanks much in advance, Uncle
  9. I like this thread; in my head, and in keeping with the overall BC theme. I'd personally contact a Heretek and get a custom gyro-stabilized servitor (with flattened head) that way you can have a stable platform to shoot from and the servitor serves as a meat shield! Win-win!
  10. Excellent 'cast as always gentlemen. Can't wait to thank you in person at Gen Con this year for all of the hard work and thought you put into your podcast.
  11. The big appeal for this type of campaign is that the group doesn't have to run about doing odd-jobs and begging for rides at the beginning of a adventure. Kind of takes the machismo out of having a chaos space marine if he has to do some piddling job for a fallen magos or whatnot.
  12. Much appreciated; I spent hours poring over all of my books to no avail. Thank you for your suggestion; but I guess I'll just have the players make their own special little Chaos Ship (including some tainted components as per your idea!). My main idea is not to give the players a powerful ship initially, although they can capture, steal or otherwise 'aquire' a larger, more powerful ship in due time. The Hellbringer class planetary bombardment cruiser is foremost in my plans in the campaign eventually. Thanks much Tenebrae for the help!
  13. Hey everyone, I was over at the 40k RPG thread on the Something Awful forums and read a greaet idea for a BC campaign. Instead of starting as a warband and then trying to infiltrate or overthrow the Imperium from the Screaming Vortex; you start as a fallen Rogue Trader and his crew, so you're already 'in' the Imperium and then can go gallivanting about spreading heresy and just generally having fun. While looking through the Battlefleet Koronus rulebook; I was perusing the Chaos ships and will be starting my players in a itty-bitty Iconclast destroyer. But in the ship stats there are a few entires I cannot find definitions or even explanations for. They are the 'pirate bridge' and the 'reaver hold'. While I understand the basic definition of each (the pirate bridge has a extra big perch for a cyber parrot and the reaver hold is for boarding actions obviously). I just can't find rules for them in any of my books. So am I overlooking something or is this just something not explained thus far for a NPC ship that you aren't supposed to play? That's my question, hope someone can answer it for me. Thanks much in advance, Uncle Sickey
  14. Excellent podcast! I've linked it to some prospective Black Crusade players in order to get a feel for the game. Thanks much for the effort on this!
  15. Personally, I use anything from Two Steps from Hell. They used to make movie soundtracks; but split off on their own and now make great albumns of pure symphonic majest. Go hit them up on youtube to sample the tracks; you won't go wrong.
