death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

My Middle Earth SBG love continues as I've started a Lothlorien army. Fancied a change though from my usual copying of film paint schemes and went for something brighter.

Sanity has won out on my end. I've opted not to get the Shadow and Pain box (for now). While yes, the number of DoK models individually cost as much as the box...but that's literally then just a 1 for 1 purchase. As I've zero interest in the Hedonites of Slaanesh at all and from what I've been seeing online nobody's really excited about them anyway in the sense I'd recoup any sort of cost out of selling that side of the box (Biggest thing I've seen is people pointing out the Chariot must not sell since GW pushes it with every Hedonites box). There's also the fact I have zero idea if I'll even enjoy painting Daughters of Khaine (I've got the Underworlds warband incoming to see if its an army I'd even be interested in doing more with).

 

Flip side, however...I preordered my copy of Broken Realms: Morathi and the CoS Battalion box. While I only have two AoS Battletomes, Cities of Sigmar captured my imagination (While Seraphon was an incredibly dry read), and that Battalion box is ridiculous value for even GW's costs and it's got insane versatility when it comes to assembly. Morathi mostly because the story spoilers I've seen make it something I really want to read on the face of it, and it adds two new Cities to the CoS roster. Har Kuron and Misthavn offer some new opportunities that I feel the Battalion box is going play into and may help me finally nail down a direction for a real CoS force (Also the fact Morathi is including new CoS rules and cities makes me feel better about the long term survivability of the army in general and not just a place for models to wait to be squatted).

Oh Hi me from a week ago. I think it's safe to say this concern was unfounded.

I am kind of glad I didn't jump on Shadow and Pain though, for the simple fact the snake girls might have been catching my eye but she was probably the most "boring" in terms of applying paint to. Had a lot more fun with Morgwaeth herself and especially the Sister of Slaughter.

Meh.

 

Probably because I'm neither interested in Space Marines or Chaos, but that panel does nothing for me. Indeed, my biggest gripe about it is how every Cultist is wielding firearms but refuses to use them. True, an Autogun is about effective against Ceremite as spitting, but Calgar's sporting that nice exposed fleshy noggin that mass fire could reduce to a red sack of jelly. That one poor damned soul got close enough for Maneus to tear him in half. When you wield a ranged weapon, that's exactly the last place you want to be.

 

I get the setting lends itself to Bolter Porn, but I prefer action scenes that actually make some tactical sense to them.

FINALLY. After almost a month of waiting...

 

BCgy3g0.jpg

 

Spent the morning devouring Morathi. First off though, let me just say Morathi is a damn sight better put together than my experience on the 40k side with Psychic Awakening. $40 for a 79 page tome, only 20 pages of it lore, vs a 120 page tome with 71 pages of lore. And while my prospective factions in both books got equal number of pages devoted to them in terms of rules (Genestealer Cults vs Cities of Sigmar), I feel like the addition of two brand new cities with special rules, artifacts, and mechanics is a lot better value than a handful of generic strategems that have been invalidated by 9th Edition.

 

It also does a hell of a lot to advance the overall story of AoS.

So I assembled my Black Dragon, and made the offhand comment to my wife I wasn't keen on painting it black. Her response was "Paint it pink. Do it. Do it or No Balls."

 

And I took that personally.

So the Black Library preview is going on right now, and we've got confirmation of the third book of the Dark Imperium series - Godblight - is incoming.

 

But we also got told that the first two books - Dark Imperium and Plague War - are getting re-released with alterations to make it fit into the greater Dawn of Fire series, moving the entire story to 12 years into the launch of the Indominitus Crusade instead of 112 years after.

 

This...is a not insignificant change.

Slowly. But much like Chaos, the corruption is inevitable. I'm helped on that front that she's a big fan of TheRussianBadger who has done a few videos on 40k.

I'm becoming a jaded cynic like those on Reddit that my reaction to the Ventres reveal was "Oh, of course it's a bloody Space Marine..."
