Re: Arthur VS Geoff 3rd Game

Cracking write up Geoff, loving the captions.

It was a tough match for the herd, we were toe to toe swinging and I think for every pt of damage I did, Geoff did nearly 5 back.... painful!

Re: Skirmish at Coffa Tree 24/06/2018

My apologies for not attending this year, I'm committed to helping and playing in an Infinity doubles competition at my local club.

Next year!

Plenty of pics please.

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff Second game

Haha... no this is aimed at the Tarvax... I'm saying the remaining wounds mechanic ensures the Tarvax' conga line tactic doesn't work. So Arthur was doing a scummy move ;o) Wotch u sayin 'bout the herd?! Ha ha, well my guys were where they were because they were stood over the butchered remains of ...

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff Second game

Thanks Rob for the clarifications. There's no could - they must. Counter-Engaging is compulsory for frenzied warriors, as long as they're not tied down already of course ;o) Now I come to think of it, I believe we DID actually do this - yes, we missed it at first and went through the resolution step...

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff Second game

Good stuff Geoff, glad you took some great pictures. When the action hotted up I was too much with my nose in the book! I deny any association with having any talent - although when bulk charging with Tarvax I do a bloody cracking impersonation of Austin Powers with my 'Do I make you horny baby?!' T...

499pts Arthur vs Geoff Second game

We sat down to our second game last night. Geoff had done great work to understand the engagement process better and this helped us get further. We all have our own preferences when learning a system, I find reading a rulebook dry with no games under my belt always a chore. Just seeing the game play...

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff first game

What do you think of it so far? Hi Rob, I'm enjoying it, I view Darklands as a counter culture, going in the opposite way of all of the other game systems I'm involved with. Whilst the other systems I play are going very streamlined in the rules, Darklands has some proper crunch about it and with a...

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff first game

Geoff's enthusiasm for all things Darklands is infectious! We first gamed together in the early '80s, both of us can trace gaming heritage back to the '70s. I'd even call myself a grognard! I wouldn't say I have been jaded as a gamer, I'm loving the current gaming scene and I play a lot of different...

So at Salute we both chose kindreds that appealed to us visually, I'm getting a feeling I don't know you as well as I thought I did :?

Re: Initiative and Reform questions

I haven't got my rulebook here but there is a block of text defining under what circumstances the reform action is effortless and it's pretty restricted. I think a shieldwall unit could do reform twice but thats about it.

I did feel slightly compelled if I'm honest!

Re: Fomoraic painting journal

Well I changed broadband provider (why cant they just treat loyal customers better, grrrr....) and had 4 days with no broadband at home. So when Geoff and I decided to play our first game on Friday I went all in to quickly paint my 499 gold of guys. So my painting journal hasn't gotten off to a grea...

Re: 499pts Arthur vs Geoff first game

Wow you guys painted these up nicely! The eternal Question who was victorious? Ysians or Formoraic? I'm hoping Geoff will spot this and add a few words as he's better at telling a good tale than me. It was a learning game and we dived in and tried everything, to the point that we tried implementing...

499pts Arthur vs Geoff first game

I have an early start tomorrow as I am going to the Games Expo so this will have to just be some pictures for now. I just thought our first game shouldn't pass unrecorded! https://i.imgur.com/b87KkQG.jpg https://i.imgur.com/PudGZ1F.jpg https://i.imgur.com/eZTmmHE.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3UZuu7z.jpg ...

Re: Hello

Hi yes, I met you at Salute and I have it planned to make the trip up there to play you guys and learn the game.

Geoff and I have our very first game of Darklands tonight in Preston. If you ever find yourself down our way let us know!

Arthurs hobby journal

I got around to priming my Fomoraic starter box (plus a couple of extras) this weekend. Black vallejo primer followed by a mid grey and a white zenithal spray. Then I put some colours into the bases to save having to use a brush as much. https://i.imgur.com/ub5mDgJ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/SPM0l76.jpg
