  1. I don't think I've ever seen anyone put Predator 2 up there with the original, but it's better than Predators while being so 90s it was like falling through a wormhole, even at release. It was a braver movie than Predators; switching up the setting, going with Danny Glover as lead, grabbing the whole expansion of the mythology with two hands, really playing off expectations set by the first, a stellar cast etc etc. Predators didn't even feel like a good Rodriguez movie, and was so reliant on rehashing the original but putting the odd twist on things I normally forget I've even seen it.

    What are you playing?

    I think the last 5 games could be interesting because basically Moose and I now have to form an alliance to stop you conquering the world. But that's going to be so uninteresting for you in some ways. The nerfed factions are definitely an issue. I need to buy some rigged red dice I can use because you clearly have a long and storied history of taking on the Mafia in casinos.

    What are you playing?

    Played Risk Legacy with Moose and Donk. It was our tenth game and Donk's sixth win. The initial excitement of all the legacy stuff has kinda gone. I think that, because there's only ever three of us playing, events get triggered less than they perhaps could so they don't offer a massive amount of excitement. The missions feel largely redundant. Donk having so many wins (and therefore missiles) turned the last game into a minor rebellion against an incredible overpowered overlord who denied us continental bonuses a few times on the trot. I've gone all the way from "this is awesome" to "hmmmm it is not" over our past few games, partly as a result of starting the largely superior Pandemic Legacy (superior in what it does with the Legacy stuff anyway). There's definitely an element of sore losership here. I'm aware of that.

    Glad you're sorted. You've made the right decision, enjoy - it's worth every penny imho.

    You're being too pragmatic, And. It's a fiver for a new model. Just a fiver! That's less than a pint, it's pocket money, it's youdontevenhavetothinkaboutit money. Just think like that every time you buy one and everything will be fine.

    They're specific, exclusive sculpts that were previously only available in Japan (in the same way). They don't have special rules though - they're just 'normal' marines and being blind buy have an element of rarity built in. I've not looked and checked, but I assume they make up a standard squad (or could do). The models are more in line with the Primaris than the classic poses, IMHO etc and have some cool features in terms of their armour. They've all got sculpted bases too, like the Underworlds stuff. I've managed to get all but the rarest one, which I probably won't bother with, but got that far through swaps etc. Currently painting them up as Guardians Of The Covenant because it's an easy colour scheme.

    Warhammer Community says so, in reference to the new figures:

    Vigilus Weekend thing has had some cool news. First up, the Noise Marine is out on 22nd December. It's incredible. Next up, Black Legion get another new figure to go alongside the 3 in Blackstone Fortress. Finally, Genestealer Cult are going full Mad Max. These are one of my favourite looking factions in the game, now.

    Make sure you go through the exhibition, it's amazing (still)!

    I probably should! Loving it so far. Lots of fantastic people and a work culture to die for.

    https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Weathering-Powders Though research implies that for using on models you play with it's quite fiddly. I'll ask around the office and see what advice anyone has - I just want dusty legged space marines!

    Your Mortarion and Robot Thingie are great, And. I've been eyeing up the weathering powders in the shop next door. Given I need to go back to a couple of models because I did the shoulder pads wrong, I think I'm gonna grab a couple of pots and give them a go. Hoping to start painting in earnest soon as well.

    It looks really, really good to me. Well done.
