    Re-read that rule and you'll see why it's the case ;-) (hint: you get two traits with Alpha Legion).
  2. The Beer and Pretzels Open 2017

    As per the rulebook, you may do either. Often that means people choose.
  3. The Beer and Pretzels Open 2017

    Good point! I don't think @MisterAG covered that in the Player Pack. Get back to work worm! On a lighter note; you guys can feel free to pay either through eInterac (PM me for my contact info you need for this), meet up with us at the Nook on a Monday night, or message us and we'll work out another way to take payments!
  4. The Beer and Pretzels Open 2017

    Just want to point out to people; take note of how Ruins will be working at the BPO! Aaron and I strongly believe that some good Line of Sight blocking terrain is critically important in 8th edition, and helps make a table great. Since we don't have enough "giant LOS blocking" pieces in our sets, the first floor of a Ruin won't block Line of Sight INTO it, but will block Line of Sight THROUGH it! We're doing this to artificially increase how much LOS blocking terrain we have, and we want to make sure you're kept well aware of this before going into the tournament so you have a chance to prep. Like @MisterAG said, please contact us with any questions, issues, or concerns you have. If you spot something and think it's a big mistake that we missed, please please please reach out to us!
  5. 40k League Lists

    Had my league match last night against Andrew's Necrons last night at the Nook. My list is in the post above, but here was his list from what I can remember: I went with +1W and 6+ Feel No Pain for my Warlord Trait, and went with Fleshy Abundance for my psychic power. I figured the extra toughness for my warlord might be important if he got swarmed by... well... the scarab swarms, and since my opponent didn't have any weapons that dealt multiple damage, I figured that if I could goad him into attacking the Bloat Drone, I might be able to heal it up nearly as fast as he could knock it down, which should benefit me. The match was long, difficult, and straining for both forces. I kept dancing around a central tower, grabbing objectives as needed. My opponent kept away from the objectives, as he was hoping to maximize his Cryptek bonuses. Twice I nearly killed the Warrior squad, bringing it down to 2 or 3 models, remaining, but that's when Necrons are at their best, and he would reanimate a good portion of the squad! My opponent actually got really unlucky with his opening volleys and most of his reanimation rolls, so the first two turns could've been a lot rougher than they otherwise were. Thankfully, my opponent also made the mistake of going after the Bloat-Drone with his forces, which lived up to its special rule and was DISGUSTINGLY resilient yet again! I never even had to cast Fleshy Abundance on it all game! Probably should've gone for Virulent Blessing for extra to-wound chances, but Smite is always a fine power to roll as well. Killed 2 Immortals with it during the game, and they never got back up (even with a 4+ Reanimation). At the bottom of Turn 5, with only my Bloat Drone, Lord, and Herald remaining, my opponent started to spread out to try and grab some late-game objectives (else he was losing to me on points). He left an opening from my Bloat Drone, which flew over his forces and landed behind him. I got just barely enough wounds through his 5+ save, and then we remembered he had his 6+ Feel No Pain trait. Thankfully (for me), he failed all his rolls, and down the Cryptek went. Without the HQ around, very few Warriors got back up, and I cleanup up that squad on turn 6. The game ended, and I had some 8 points (I think 6 plus First Blood and Slay the Warlord) to his 2 points, and victory went to the forces of Chaos! After the battle I asked my opponent why he didn't spend any Command Points on rerolls or such. He hadn't realized that just being Battle Forged gave you 3 command points. We laughed, and both felt bad that he had effectively played with a missing resource, but we noted that his list was entirely based on volume of fire, and there were few times, if any, that rerolls would've played a large part in the game. It definitely COULD have changed things (especially with that turn 5 Slay the Warlord, getting a reroll for a second chance at a 5+ is better than no second chance at all!), but likely wouldn't have. Ultimately, I'm glad I had a chance to run the Herald with the Bloat Drone, but I think the Herald was the right choice simply because the Herald was useful for throwing down Smites and having some good close combat attacks, rather than because of his buff-field, and the Bloat Drone was good simply because he was so tough, rather than because he was benefiting from any buffs.

    Will the suggested Matched Play updates from the Community Site and upcoming Chapter Approved update be used (https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/08/09/new-matched-play-rules-in-chapter-approved-aug-9gw-homepage-post-1/)? Specifically, this one:
  7. 40k League Lists

    Hey folks! I don't know about you, but I always like playing in the Escalation Leagues this town hosts. Starting small and working your way up is a great way to try new armies before deciding whether or not to jump right in, new strategies, and just have a blast. To that end, like last time, I am going to commit to trying to achieve the Challenge each and every round! On top of that, I'm going to share my lists to everyone, and I'll try to let you know how it goes. So here's my first list for the 500 points! This list is trying to take advantage of the cheap Chaos Lord providing re-rolls, and +1 S to the Foetid Bloat Drone from a nearby Herald of Nurgle. My opponent's list will determine if it makes more sense to try and heal up the Bloat Drone every turn using Fleshy Abundance (if their lists are more small arms fire heavy and S/T 3), or Virulent Blessing if their army is more Lascannon-heavy and S/T 4. This serious threat should also help distract enemy forces from my Noise Marines (becoming troops due to being Emperor's Children) and CSM squad, who should be able to dish out some good shots from beyond 24" range. What are your lists looking like?

    I'd love to, but I'll be stuck here in town that day. Good luck to all the participants!

    I'm glad I have the old Typhus model. This one's a little fugly. Excited by what the heck are those crawling contraptions.
  10. The Beer and Pretzels Open 2017

    Hey everyone! It's been pretty silent in the lead-up, but we're rocking and a rolling towards November, and the BPO is full speed ahead! All aboard the hype train! Choo choo! We're really committed to trying to make the day the most fun event possible. Now with 8th edition here, there's a wealth of opportunities for all players! By the time November comes, we'll be up to our eyeballs in Ad Mech, Eldar, Thousand Sons, and Tyranid codexes, plus who knows how many others! Still, some of you might be itching to bring an army that only has a little itty-bitty index entry, and might feel like all the big boys get to throw around so many special rules that you just might sit in a corner and sulk. FEAR NOT! While everyone will get to use their Codex Stratagems and everything super-special-amazing-awesome, YOU will get the Beer and Pretzels Open Stratagems! That's right! Your own special collection of stratagems that means you can tumble with the rest of them! Here's my personal favourite: Yes, you can again force your opponent's vehicles to become heaping mounds of twisted metal! Use it to get out of Line of Sight, or make a road-block of your opponent's own vehicles! Of course, for the especially willy players, you could use it on your vehicles too, by carefully positioning them so that once destroyed, you can continue to hide behind them as though they were still there! We got more coming as we get closer. See you all soon!
  11. The Beer and Pretzels Open 2017

    Not at all! In order to gain the "objective secured" bonus, you simply need a Battle Forged army. An army is Battle Forged so long as two things are true: #1 - Every unit in your army shares at least ONE keyword. #2 - Every unit in your army is part of a detachment. Matched Play (like what we'll be doing at the BPO) stipulates that your 2000 point army should be made of 3 or fewer Detachments. So long as that's all true, you're good, and gain all your wonderful ObSec bonuses! If you check your rulebook, you'll also see that there's a Detachment type called a Fortification Network, which is composed of between 1 and 3 Fortifications. Well, you can take that Aegis Defence Line as a Fortification, so that way it's still part of a detachment, but it will mean you only have 2 other detachments to work with. For a lot of people that's A-Okay, as a Battalion or something like it is all you need, but others have very vast and/or weird armies that need all 3 of those detachments to function. Also remember that to gain your Alpha Legion specific bonuses, you'll need your Alpha Legion detachments be composed ONLY of units that have the <<Legion>> faction keyword, all of which must be set to "Alpha Legion". EDIT: Since the Fortification Network is in its own detachment not with any other Alpha Legionairres, you won't lose your benefit! In fact, you could even have 1 detachment be Alpha Legion, a 2nd detachment be Night Lords, and a 3rd detachment be a Renegade Chapter, and ALL units in those detachments would EACH still benefit from their Legion Traits!

    Sounds good to me! See you then!

    Or, you know, I'll just give it to you... but I'd love to catch up with you over a game some time!

    I've got most of a Daemon Prince (somewhat disassembled) for free recently. You can have it if you can defeat me in a 1500 point game at my place!
