3++ Video Battle Reports

Hey guys,

We did some filming on the weekend and cannot find the video editor that I was using before – does anyone have a good free video editor that they could recommend? Just doing something really basic in terms of compressing, adding stills and editing the audio (adding music and voiceovers).

Also, I’m not the most graphics savvy so is anyone keen to be immortalised for all eternity at the beginning of 3++ videos to do a 15-20 sec introduction graphic / video? For extra bonus points, adding graphics to screen (i.e. damage tracking, turn counter, etc.).

Cheers guys :).

Warmachine / Hordes – Battlebox Spoilers

Hey all,

Just going through all the photos now and will be listing a summary and photos for reference.

The other spoilers, I’m not going to post as there are some obvious inconsistencies with them (i.e. POW of Ravagore being not what PP have directly spoiled). I’ve got them saved if they turn out to be true but likely they are early playtest versions (I believe).

ERRATA

40K RULEBOOK
Page 27 – The Psychic Phase, Witchfire
Add the following sentence after the fourth sentence of the first paragraph:
‘However, some witchfire powers do not have a weapon profile (such as the Telepathy power, Psychic Shriek); where this is the case, no To Hit roll is required – the attack hits automatically.’

Star Wars: Armada: The Galactic Civil War International Tournament

This is for those 3++ readers who have recently become interested in Star Wars: Armada, the fleet level strategy game from FFG.

I am currently organising an international Tournament for 30 players, half Imperial and half of them Rebel, to decide the future of the Galaxy. Games will be played on Vassal (or live on tabletop, where available)

This is WAR

not a small skirmish or some luxury training exercise. Men and Materiel are stretched to the absolute limit as the factions scramble to prepare for massive sector-wide battles. Great heroes like Major Rhymer, Howlrunner, Wedge Antilles and even scoundrels like Han Solo can’t be everywhere at once, and admirals must make do with whatever ships and supplies they can beg from their HQs.

Massive ships like Home 1, the Avenger, Demolisher and Yavaris can only be in one sector under one admiral at a time, and planning around these restrictions may prove to be as much a key to victory as the efforts of the individual admirals and pilots. Read more »

Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game

There have been rumours swirling around for a while regarding the future of one of Games Workshops most popular, but recently neglected, games – The Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit Strategy Battle Game.

This was in fact the game that got me into tabletop gaming in the first place, eventually leading down the rabbit hole to 40K and Epic:Armageddon, and to other expensive habits like X-Wing and Star Wars Armada, so it has a lot to answer for!

Take everything with a grain of salt, but since there is still an active tournament and campaign scene in many areas, I am sure I am not alone in hoping the rumours are true.

EPIC BATTLE PHOTOS – From The Cancon 2016 Tournament

The EPIC Cancon 2016 tournament in Australia was once again a massive success, pulling in around 30 Epic:Armageddon players from right across the nation.

The fact some travelled as far as an 8,000 kilometre round trip made this feel like even more than a national event, and despite the fact that GW put 40K’s little big brother on a back-burner a few years ago, the players’ enthusiasm for the game just keeps growing. The rules to this game are free (and legally!) available for download http://www.net-armageddon.org/

As most Gamesworkshop fans will be aware, Epic:Armageddon is one of the games GW has assigned to their new Specialist Games Division, meaning that there should be some new activity around the system in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, here are some photos of the fantastic armies and games from the recent event.
