    Drakoniss got a reaction from Tubb in Para Bellum - Conquest   
    I am moving to Conquest. I was sad the way they bungled Runewars. But Conquest is going to be a great game, with 18 factions planned. First 4 factions will all have 10-11 units the first year. Also it costs even less than Runewars with better models.

    I never actually got into Runewars. The rules seemed very interesting, but the factions and lore didn't really grab me. Conquest, however, I have been very keen on.

    The scale is much larger in Conquest, as they're closer to Legion-sized miniatures (35mm). So mixing the two would look very strange. That said, Conquest looks more than promising enough to get into on its own merits. I've been following it for quite some time, and most of what they're previewed looks fantastic.

    Drakoniss reacted to Crimsonwarlock in Illegal Squad at Phoenix / Trip Upsilon (no relation)   
    I was at the event and fellow that this happened to is a good friend of mine.  The illicit list was due to a bug in YASB 2.0  I'm not 100% on the details of the bug, but the judges were able to replicate the bug.  There was no Ill intent. The computer did the math on serissu incorrectly and as a result his list was showing at 199 pts in the Yasb, but was really 201 pts.
     
    This is part of the reason I keep using FFG'S app despite it having bugs (like periodically eating my lists)

    I think that if we scored the matches as 200 - (points remaining on the board) it could resolve the bidding wars but I've put in 0 testing so what do I know.

    No, because if I wanted to play a free form skirmish game, I'd be playing Age of Sigmar.
    I really like the tactics of flanks meaning something.

    6mm would make it the same as X-Wing scale.

    I think it's more like 6mm but...
    You can go buy up a couple each of the two different MPC/Ertl plastic Hoth dioramas and you could do it. They made a battle scene and a rebel base interior. You'd have rebel infantry, stormtroopers, rebels on tauntauns, Atgar cannons, Golan arms turrets, AT-ST's, AT-AT's, snowspeeders, plus a few uniquely casted figures like Leia and 3PO to designate command bases.
    You'd also have X-Wings, Y-Wings, Falcons, rebel transports and ruined AT-AT's to make scenery. Both these kits were sold in the 80's and thanks to a late 90's re-release aren't all that hard to come by.
     
    Pre-painted, Micro Machine starfighters on stiff wire would probably be your best bet for strafing runs.

    Drakoniss reacted to Bhelliom in Unit Balance Survey   
    Hello all! With all the talk of community errata going forward, I put together a survey to help identify the problem spots. Hopefully it will give us an idea of the absolute worst offenders out there so we can figure out exactly what to do with them!

    This is my take as well.  When it says 'each other "Ventala" ally' they are referring friendly units with Ventala in their name who are not the active unit.  They are not implying that the active unit must be Ventala.  If that were the case they would likely have just put "Ventala only" on the upgrade card as they have done with other unit specific upgrades.

    Drakoniss reacted to Curlycross in Can Scuttling Horror be used to exit terrain? I think not.   
    This is my thought exactly the rules basically make it sound like direction of shift doesn't matter in terrain. It says the whole outside of terrain is the front edge if engaged but it says you can shift out. So there is no shifting backwards as all sides of terrain are the front. This makes shifts not need a direction in terrain. The thing I've been saying this whole time is a shift is a shift regardless of direction, and all you need to do is shift to leave terrain.

    Drakoniss reacted to Bhelliom in What makes the Uthuk Y'llan strong?   
    I think it largely boils down to raw efficiency and a couple upgrades that are way off curve. 
    Spined threshers, Ravos, and berserkers are quite straight forward, and do well in their roles. They don’t have a ton of flexibility, but neither are they paying for it. Flesh rippers are a little more technical and vulnerable to bad matchups, but generally Uthuk can expect to get good use out of their units. 
    Then there’s the few trouble makers: Warsprinter, Insatiable Hunger, and Scuttling Horror. All three are pretty seriously under-costed, and contribute to not only the Uthuk’s speed, but also flexibility. They take a solid chassis, and boost things up pretty intensely.

    Uthuk win all three. One was down to the wire, the elves were looking good in another one until a big swing back. Uthuk did not fair as well against the Daqan.

    Round 2 done. I’ve now faced two Daqan players. I finished with 102 MoV. 60 points came from flank charges and 10 from the Uthuk terrain. It was a bloodbath with very little left.
     
    Round 1 was Volatile Runes on Careful Approach (?)
    Round 2 was Demoralize in Unprepared.

    Uthuk, hands-down. I have played a lot of games in the past week and it seems like no matter what I bring, I can't lose. Then again, I've only faced Waiqar for the whole week, so maybe those two are just a bad match-up?
