Right, so Jason is playing the new Dan at Dystopian Wars.

Adam is the first priority for a 40k game, and (to avoid using any insulting descriptive) more established Dan shall be confirming with me tomorrow if he can take that game on...

Dale is second priority for a game, and he is lined up for a fight with Jamie.

Ron and Neil have a prearranged game of 40k, although Neil might be watching Pompey play depending on what day that is, but if he can't make it he has a second in Rich H...

Rich H, assuming he isn't playing in Neils stead, is looking for 40k, and has challenged me, but I said I wanted to make sure everyone else got games for sure first...

So, who am I missing? Anyone else need a game lining up?

Oh, and if anyone wants to make any of these games count as a league game, you are more than welcome to do so, just have a chat amongst yourselves and decide IF you want to, and if so who is home who is away. And let me know.

ok, Dan can't make it this week, so thus far looks like Rich H or myself against Adam. Dan has challenged Adam to a game on the 1st if you're interested Adam?

Afternoon,

Cannot make it this week as I am playing 5 a side football with work.

Happy to play Dan on 1 September. Any preference on what army you face (marines or Necrons) and points value?

Adam

Ok cool thanks Adam. I'll let you and Dan hash out the details in the post for next weeks games when I put that up.

Just read this on BOLs and it made me chuckle. Sorry for being completely irrelevant to next week game.

OPERATOR: Thank you for calling Chapter Master Emporium, your source for purity seals, gold ropes, chapter-flavored christmas tree ornaments, and custom artificer armor. How may I bling your armor today?
MARINE CAPTAIN: Yea, I would like to get a refund on this plasma pistol.
OPERATOR: I’m very sorry to hear that, astartes. Has your ancient relic somehow failed you in your endless war against the forces of darkness and heresy?
MARINE CAPTAIN: No, it’s not that.
OPERATOR: Has it rolled a one and wounded you? For an extra fifteen points, we can upgrade you to the master-crafted model, which includes your choice of free matching chapter doodads and a pointlessly large optical scope.
MARINE CAPTAIN: No. Stop. Just… Stop with the sales pitch. I don’t want it. I want to return it.
OPERATOR: Sir, your model came with that plasma pistol, are you sure you don’t want it?
MARINE CAPTAIN: Yea well, a lot of marine character models come with plasma pistols. Loyalists and traitors. I mean really, that’s the whole problem. I don’t think any of us actually want them.
OPERATOR: I don’t understand sir, the plasma pistol is S7 AP2, it has great power to unleash the fury of the emperor on your foes.
MARINE CAPTAIN: For like one turn. Maybe. I mean really, I’m fine with just a bolter. I mean I think the only reason we have plasma pistols at all is because the miniature designers like them. They’re like “hey, cool guy gun! Yea! Put it on the boss marine.”
OPERATOR: It is a very cool gun, sir.
MARINE CAPTAIN: It’s fifteen points of pure chump, to be honest.
OPERATOR: Well I wouldn’t go that far sir, that’s blasphemy against the omnissiah.
MARINE CAPTAIN: Oh, I’m not bashing Mars… It’s just that… For fifteen points, I’ll never use this thing. I can get another tactical marine or a scout sniper. Maybe put a hunter killer missile on my predator for a little extra pow on turn 1… But this thing? I’m never gonna use it. I’m gonna hop out of my land raider and punch a guy in the face with my power fist. I don’t need a fifteen point gun for that.
OPERATOR: Sir, may I advise you that your shooting phase is before your assault phase? You can fire it prior to throwing sick haymakers.
MARINE CAPTAIN: Yea I thought of that, but you know, it’s not worth the risk. I mean sure I’ll melt a guy with it, but it’s gonna be the guy in front… That might take a whole inch off my charge range, and if I hop out of my land raider and don’t get into melee, I’m gonna get plasma’d back to third edition by a crisis drop. I mean I don’t need a cute pistol to fight Tau, we just walk up to them and hit them with rocks, their guns don’t work in a fight.
OPERATOR: I never thought of it like that sir.
MARINE CAPTAIN: I know you didn’t. You work in the design studio.
OPERATOR: Well can I interest you in a combi weapon instead? How about a gun that looks really cool and big but actually shoots more than just a pistol shot? You mentioned you’d only fire it once, so the one shot component isn’t much of a loss is it?
MARINE CAPTAIN: Eh… Maybe. Is there some way I can get Relentless? Like can you throw in terminator armor? Actually… I dunno, I’m Initiative 5, I don’t want to lose any opportunity to run those heretics town when I beat them in a fight. Yea, better pass. Just send me a bolter.
OPERATOR: We’re currently having a flavor of the month sale on Grav weapons sir, it’s extended through 2 codex books!
MARINE CAPTAIN: Nah, I really want those points back. Just refund the plasma pistol.
OPERATOR: Alright sir, just send it back to Mars and we’ll send you your fifteen points back in… About 900 years give or take a few decades depending on warp travel conditions.
MARINE CAPTAIN: 900 years?!
OPERATOR: Yes sir, in the grim darkness of the far future, everything takes a pointlessly long amount of time because that’s grim dark. Please make sure that when you send the package back it’s in a box made out of corpse-cardboard from harvested human skin and delivered by a failed chapter aspirant servitor.
MARINE CAPTAIN: Sigh. Alright. When can I get the new bolter?
OPERATOR: With or without chapter bling, sir?
MARINE CAPTAIN: Do I really need a bunch of wacky christmas ornaments hanging off my gun? Like does my gun have to look like a church?
OPERATOR: Is that a rhetorical question, sir?
MARINE COMMANDER: …It is, isn’t it?

Jamie, if you want to bring the tiles in you're more than welcome to, we still have the foam boards and other boards we can use, though yeah the tiles do look better.

Good find with the plasma pistol thing by the way Razz

As for you guys playing home/away, entirely up to you how you do it, I originally envisaged it being decided in advance (knowing I get to pick the mission as the attacker I may design my force accordingly) but as anything in this club, if the two players agree who elses opinion matters? Razz

And yes, I imagine Eldar will give you less headbutts than orks will, but in my experience they do have one or two nasty tricks of their own in the irrelevant phases... sorry, shooting and psychic phases. Ork brain took over for a second there...

Neil has not said he isn't coming so he should he as that was his parting message to me. He would let me know asap if he could not make it.

In typical Neil fasion he has informed me he's not coming Tuesday. So I will play you Ron but I obviously won't be bringing my Daemons, just a bit one sided there.

Bring what ever you want. I play chaos. We play to er play. Winning is never an option, just an occasional surprise.

So, to recap...

Dale vs Jamie 40k
Rich H vs Ron 40k
Jason vs Dan Dys Wars

And as I don't yet have a game lined up and there's no Neil requiring a lift home I might make a brief appearance this week, help set things up sort out the dues then head off to see a lady who has been inconvenient enough to only have Tuesday evenings free the past couple weeks...
