No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Still have yet to see finecast in the flesh. The absurd price is the main sticking point for me ordering a model.

To be fair? On one part, they also initially called their Abyssal Dwarfs "Khaos Dwarfs". So it may not be a final name. For the other? It's not worse than "orks". Given both are the "xtreme kool letterz" version of the orc.

I think the Urk or Urx is a better name, myself. Fits the more organised, millitary (Yet worn and crude) look that Uruk-Hai had.

Everything coming out of Warpath, including the characterisation of the not-Orks, seems very Rogue-trader-ish to me. I hope to Zod that doesn't mean their not-Tyranids will have crotch-mounted melee weapons...

For the UK people, the 40k doubles tournament tickets come out on wednesday. It's well worth going, last time in february was my first tournament and I ended up winning a certificate:

40k doubles results

Look under the colonel schaeffer award and I'm on the left with my partner Rich on the right!

I'ts looking likely Team: shoot him not me will return

When I think of extreeeeme, I think of the Eighties. And when I think of the Eighties, I think of Germany. Blame the Timothy Dalton-era James Bond films. But I have been enlightened, so it's all good.

For the record, the Harlequin Troupe Master is one of the most annoying metal models to put together. "Lets make this model really top heavy, then make all that weight balanced on a really hard to pin strip of thin ribbon!" Gublagh.


Try one of the metal Zoanthropes. I don't care how many bubbles they have, Finecast Zoans are worth it.

I've only opened+put together one Finecast kit, a Hive Guard. Minimal, easy to clean flash, only very small flaws in the model, and they were right at the back of the head where you can't see them. One datapoint doesn't make a trend, but I hate the 'nid metals so much that it's okay with me.

Not sold on the price though.

Agreed, less top heavy Zoans are a significant improvement. Sufficient for me to consider replacing the ones I already have with Finecast, even if I have to fill in a bunch of the model myself.

Huh, now a certain repeatedly-accurate rumour source says there'll be two new armies.

I wish they'd just make more STUFF for Chaos Daemons first, their codex is both horrible and bare-bones.

I honestly feel codex daemons should be thrown out the window and GW should do a separate codex for each of the four chaos gods, detailing their mortal, xenos, daemon and daemon engine servants, plus a 'chaos renegades' codex that would be a mix of chaos space marines and Lost and the Damned.

If each list has some generic core Chaos marine units, yeah, easily. A mono-god Chaos list that combines the Marine and Deamon books would probably have more unit types than the Sisters of Battle already, even before you restored things like cult terminators.

They could even bring 40k beastmen back...

Seriously, streams of it.

QUOTE
Important stuff:

Every 5th wound is allocated by the attacker onto whatever model he wants (sniper weapons every 2nd wound)

Charging now happens in the movement phase by moving within 1" as long as your movement type allows you to assault

Fleet is initiative test to triple movement but no shooting and BS penalty to shoot at the fleeting unit

Move through cover is now initiative test to ignore terrain

Each assault weapon on the model give a bonus attack in close combat if you charge

Cheap 4 point stragem that give assault grenades to every model in your army
