    New Unit Type: Operative

    Love it! More iconic characters == a more a Star Wars feeling game. So pumped. Plus the sculpt on Boba Fett is awesome. I can't wait to paint him up.

    Runewars board game as a campaign engine

    I've been waiting for FFG to come out with a campaign arc guide... even just a digital download that plays along such a story line. Makes so much sense to introduce the lore and set up a bit more consistent feel to Terrinoth for players.
  4. Kylo Ren ftw. Bring on the First Order!

    Just got my'thuck

    I'm going to go after this @Budgernaut ! Nice. thinking sickly jaudice yellow with some nurgle rot mixed in. I'm less concerned about the banner color, but that didn't look ash gray it looked steel blue. Did not like. The flesh rippers, however, are gorgeous

    Anyone else not really dig on the light blue demons in the stock photos? Seems like diablo red should be more appropriate. Maybe I'm missing some lore there... Ravos, sure, he's a special maybe he has some kind of reason for being light blue... but the infantry?

    can't wait to paint those wraiths! So good!

    Future Units

    don't trebuchets hit walls not troops? No trebuchet every built is ever going to hit a cavalry unit

    A Funny Thing Happened

    So I have to say that a funny thing happened in my excitement for Legion (i preordered the base box and 1 of everything else so far)... my Love for Runewars was rekindled. My original fervor died down during the late fall and winter after being beyond excited for the Runewars release a year ago and having a blast painting base boxes, getting the first expansions table-top ready, and playing a lot over the summer. I went to Pax Unplugged ready to play and there was nothing. No Runewars; no Legion either. It really bummed me out and set me back some. Then Legion really started exploding. I started getting hyped up for it. I was reading about the previews, speculating on army builds, watching @Sorastro's amazing painting vids and obviously, I dropped my preorder(s) into to FLGS (btw, yes, I realize I can get things cheaper online, but I'd rather support local commerce) Recently, I went back and started going through my armies and tried to reorganize my Latari elves... After months of "who-freaking-knows-why-it-takes-so-long" my BattleFoam 352 Pack case serendipitously arrived. I painted up a few units that I hadn't yet, added some new terrain to my bag and yearned to figure out how to actually make 3D terrain, and then... i went out and bought some extra Scions at my FLGS... and painted them... and added their cards to my collection... and then finally actually played again. And invited another friend to hang out and play. Somewhere in there, I remember how great those miniatures are and how much I enjoyed the setting. I got really excited to play again. Man, I love this game. Its fun, its fast, the army creation and tray system is great. It's not a Warhammer killer the way Legion is and I actually really like it for that. It's far easier with all the fun of the xwing dial system (FWIW I hate that whole extra command card stuff from the Runewars iOS game and Legion - that to me just bogs the game down). Sometimes you feel like being in a galaxy far, far away and other times you want a freaking great fantasy miniatures game (in a world that's really run thin on them otherwise). It's awesome to get both. I'm at it full tilt again, painting up a few expansions to add to my armies, and I finally ordered up Uthuk base box. Go Runewars. I'm excited about the next year of this game. Figured I'd share.

    A Funny Thing Happened

    Thanks, DarkJawa103. Looking forward to seeing the Uthuk guys get off the printer so I can have 4 full factions to bring to the table. Definitely, need to clear the initial Legion push first.

    Runewars Versus: Battle for the Aymhelin

    i wish they broke out the round by round tactics a little more. I like the narrative, its fun to read, but more pictures and a few more round summaries wouldn't hurt

    AT-ST/Speeder Bike Paint Suggestions

    Sorastro is posting a video for spider bikes shortly. He noted it in his Patreon channel. Just wait to see what he's doing and then try to get a decent color match in your paint line of choice.

    An Article!

    Thank you FFG Gods for showing us some love for Runewars! I love this game. I'm excited to see more coming out. Give us some content play!
  14. I love the tinting on the scythe, Polda! Very cool look.
  15. FFG produced (or licensed) 3d Terrain? FWIW I'd also love this for Legion
  16. Is it just me or has Rune Wars started to slow to a crawl? There haven't been any exciting new announcements and new expansions just seem to be slowed to a trickle. Back this summer we were getting teasers for all types of new and interesting units like the Wraiths and Crossbow Daquan, but now? Nothing? What is Rune Wars going to be in 2018?

    Sorastro's Painting

    I started painting again because Sorastro's IA videos inspired me to believe I could be good at it. 2 years later, I am a Sorastro Patreon, I paint a few nights a week, and I'm loving bringing those mini's to the table. Thanks man! I can only urge you all to support him via his Patreon channel!

    FFG if you're watching no news is bad news

    Amen! I loved this game immediately after seeing Sorastro paint the Rune Golem forcing me to go look at all the GenCon posts for the game for a few weeks to get amped (even if the scene is only so-so so far). I get that it's only in its first year, but it has a place as one of the better fantasy battlers out here. I want it to keep on keeping on. I don't think it is too much to know it's not going to be orphaned for Legion because Star Wars trumps all only to be left with hundreds of dollars or models in cases. Give us a glimpse of the year ahead FFG: a state of the union if you will. You don't need to give every sexy little surprise away.
  21. You should do a few youtube videos on how to do that terrain! Your terrain not only looks amazing, but it also looks like it would play well with the trays! Runewars Terrain vids would be huge. I'm a complete terrain newb and would love to have something like that on my table.

    3rd Faction?? Hutts or a Crime syndicate

    Have they said how loyal they are going to be to timelines? If they're not, expansion possibilities abound... Curious if they posted an official stance there.

    Will the Core make XMas?

    I keep wondering if the Core Set is going to be out for Christmas shopping season or not. Seems like it would be a big miss if it wasn't, but here we are staring down December and no announced street date. Whats your best guess?
  24. Just got back from Pax Unplugged a few days ago and, woohoo, what a show. One huge complaint... There were hundreds to thousands of people playing miniature war games and there was literally ZERO Runewars going on there. Nada. Null. None. To be fair, FFG had a very weak showing compared to most medium->major gaming studios (they didn't even show off Legion there which is unfathomable to me). Shame on FFG tbh. I feel like we need to try to get some momentum going into next years show and get a tournament there. If I'm paying for a trip, it's going to be to Pax (any one of them, but unplugged especially) and not the FFG Worlds in Minnesota. With all due respect, Minnesota is a pretty rotten destination for a get-away weekend.

    Painting The Forces of Hepitude

    I'd Venmo over some $ if you wanted to build me some terrain. Seriously. Its one side of the hobby I've yet to get into, but I love the way it looks on the table.
