    dcgoose86 got a reaction from Xelto in Adepticon 2019   
    So, look like Armanda events were add, actually a bunch FFG events went up. Saddly look like no Runewars. This kinda of sad end for a game that the starter was given away at  two years ago at Adepticon, not to have any support now at the event.

    dcgoose86 reacted to Engine25 in Flaws?   
    I play a lot of games but in the interest of transparency, this will be my first rank and file game, as it appears to revise a lot of the issues I have with other rank and file games.  IE, if a game is not played on a grid, I am 100% in favor of included movement tools and measurement tools as opposed to a tape measure.  If I'm watching someone play a game and they pull out a tape measure, I'm out before I try it, but that's just me.  Also, the dice system is appealing to me.  Just a few dice to roll.  Really bugs me to throw a fistful or cupful or D6's.  It's also mechanically very interesting, and as a long time X-wing player, the demos seem interesting, with a lot of cool new ideas and a lot of familiar ones.  And short games.  As others have said, it looks like the aim is to be for games to be in the ballpark of an hour to 90 minutes.  I like games that play fast. Rarely has a game that takes several hours to complete kept my attention.
     
    Now these are all personal opinions, and a lot of these preferences have directed me away from other Rank and File type games.  Not even 100% sold on Rune Wars, but I am going to give it a fair chance and play it a few times before I make a decision.  Based on the previews, I am extremely excited!

    dcgoose86 reacted to Oloh in Flanking and ranged limitation   
    I think what we have heard through the demo so far is:
     
    1. Flanking and rear charges add a yet unknown number of panic tokens.  
    2. The damage dice gained through formation will be adjusted in some way if you are flanked or rear attacked (presumably lost).
    3. Shooting damage will be mitigated by the range template in some unknown fashion.
     
    A lot of people have been talking about how powerful the reanimates ranged attacks are, but remember that the demos we have watched, the models were either set up in or moved directly into the range of the archers.  Once folks understand the ranges and mechanics, you will most likely be able to avoid/mitigate damage via good deployment and movement.  Note that the archers cannot move and attack, nor can they charge (which makes sense), so the gameplay around archers will likely be to treat them as a threat zone where only good trading units enter their zone.  
     
    For example, assuming they can fire at a range of 4 out of 5, approximately 8 inches (we are not sure if this is the case, but 5 is the maximum that the range template permits and I assume things like siege engines would be higher than bows).  That a unit of spearmen can advance 3 and defend, advance 3 and defend again, then charge with 2 with higher initiative...each of the two volleys they have to eat will be at +2 armor with a 16 model unit.  If the archers try to move to avoid, they cant attack.  If they stand and shoot, then the spearmen can close the gap.  Once they charge, the spearmen will crush the archers, even if they lose half of their models getting there.  The point cost is 32 archers to 30 spearmen, so it would be a win for the spearmen.
     
    The point isn't that this is exactly how it would play out, but seeing relatively squishy fast moving Calvary charge blindly into an arrow volley and watching the damages isn't the best indicator of power.  Even if the Calvary does just rush the archers, but defends on the way, that changes them to a 3/1 with a 4 movement.  They could reach the archers in 2 turns, eating one volley.

    I am buying two core sets blindly, without waiting for any reviews, and will probably buy multiples of all the expansions.

    dcgoose86 got a reaction from Totengraber in Why I don't buy this game   
    I hated to see Warhammer 40K conquest go and we will never get to see a Forbidden stars expansion, that's was ready to go to print.  I don't understand why people are so upset about Battle lore 2nd edition.  I own the game, still play it today as a great fast light wargame.   FFG never said they were going to make elf's, don't get me wrong I would buy them today if they came out.   With three factions each with an Army upgrade and more neutral units that can be used by any side.  Battle lore 2nd is a full game, and I don't think it's made lesser by not having more factions.  
     
    Do really need anther "I'm not buying this game, because of X" thread?  I'm beyond excited that a major player in the tabletop industry going a to make a rank and file miniatures game.  If someone told me that FFG or really any company going to make a new IP R&F game, I wouldn't have believed them.  GW literally blow up the Warhammer Old world, to make Age of Sigmar, because they didn't want to make a R&F game anymore.

    Is anyone going to Adepticon 2017? Their two events for Runewars by FFG to sign up for. I'm looking forward to the team tournament on Thursday. With Adepticon set for late March, my guess is that Runewars will be out sooner then later Q1 2017. Anyone else going ?
