    Actually, paying for one per model means that you'll always have a krak grenade handy, rather than having them be able to be sniped out like special weapons and characters. So there's that. Plus,...

    I already call them "super-detachments" because formations are a type of detachment, and hence it's a detachment of detachments. Seems reasonable to me.

    I have a theory that, since the Realm of Chaos, the Warp, exists beyond space and time (and yet contiguous with it), that 40k is actually a war over reality. They say as much in the First Heretic...

    Maelstrom's Edge

    Dakka Dakka has apparently developed a game they're calling "Maelstrom's Edge." I'll let everyone's google-fu do the linking for them. Any comments or insights about it? So far it seems like any...

    I think it's worth noting that the Warhammer 40k community lacks a standard, systematic way for talking about the features of the game. Everyone has their own jargon, and that isolation. I like to...

    Have you considered having the Warhound walking on its toes instead of flat-footed? A la: 9943

    An historical epiphet for 'war-gamers' has been 'Grognard' or "grumbler" after Napolean's Grenadiers of the Imperial Guard. And it's the Veterans of these games that tend to grumble the loudest.

    So, you're oddly unfamiliar with the kaiju/super-mecha genre as a whole?

    First, you should probably have a background including game design, game theory, and quantitative analysis. Some stats and probability theory will also help, but it's presumed in the knowledge of...

    Alternately there's a million different reasons why he could miss, or simply not fire, and considering the normal distribution stipulating a flat 3+ and calling it a day is good enough.

    Reminds me of the 5th edition WFB rulebook and the little cartoons. There was a Bretonnian one where some maidens were fastening their "favours" to the Knight's lance. His horse didn't look pleased...
