Re: Specialist games return?

LotR skirmish is lots of fun. It excels on small maps, low model count and heavy terrain.

Re: ETC 2016 Votes for 9th Age

I'm not sure I agree. 9th age isnt building a game from the ground up. The vision, imagination, execution and many other things required to create a game are already done. Its more of an edited version of 8th based on player feedback. It is for this reason you see blizzard making starcraft balance c...

Re: ETC 2016 Votes for 9th Age

Its funny Furion mentioned these Tier 1 players. There was a time where I would disagree, until I played several times against a Tier1 player who quite obviously plays at the highest level possible. Furion probably knows who he is, Daniel, VC player from Malta.

Re: ETC 2016 Votes for 9th Age

I do not understand the decision to vote for a hero based deathstar game over an actual unit-centric game. I also don't understand to decision to pick a fan based game with no real future over one supported by a company that obviously cares about its game. I am certain most of the people who voted f...

Re: 2nd Edition Kings of War release

I've played a couple of scenarios and now I'll never go back. They're excellent. Unlike the old WHFB scenarios they are not broken and further promotes balanced armies. 2500 with a scenario is my preferred format.

It would basically work as follows: 1) DL the app and put in your details...basically a user...

Re: 9th Edition rumours

Been painting some 40k recently and having tons of fun. Probably I'll stick with it as the games look fun too. There are a lot of things in that game that oldhammer never had, like objectives, weapon choices in list building, vehicles, and so on. Tables can have some crazy terrain and be usable too.
