NEXUS
by D-Verse Publishing


Posted: 2018-03-27 00:00:00


• Bloodthirsty Combat - Engage in 1v1 bouts that pit fighters in an all-or-nothing battle where only one will emerge victorious...and alive. But don’t worry, NEXUS is not all about winning and losing in the barge arena. As a Lanista, even a loss from one of your fighters can build fame which will help you on the next bout.


• Choose Your Champion - Known as Helots, arena fighters can come from all known (and unknown) species. They can be outfitted with sleek weapons, have ravenous maws and unending appetites, win by sheer cunning--no method of winning matters so long as your Helot is the last one standing. There are no classes in NEXUS. There are motivations. This means anything you can dream up can have its day in the barge fights!


• Adapt, Evolve, and Conquer - Switch up your strategy on the fly, taking advantage of turning points, triggered events, precision strikes, and other tactics that can turn a losing bout into a rousing victory.

Hello there, I am Paul. I have been into Wargaming (more specifically the Worlds of Games Workshop) for more than 25 years. I am more of a painter than a gamer, that said I am more of a tabletop level army painter than the works of art in the miniature world that we can see today.

With the recent release of the new 40k Conquest part works in the UK I am using it to create a brand new Marine army and to add to my current Death Guard army. I am currently subscribed and am eagerly awaiting my first delivery. Whether I last the entire 80 issue run of the magazine remains to be seen, but I intend to have fun finding out.

Anyway, here is issue 1, I managed to track down 5 copies from a mixture of Forbidden Planet and my local Asda. I just could not resist it at £1.99 for the three minis, three paints and substandard brush.

That nets me 15 Primaris Intercessors, more than probably needed as far as troops selection go. The main issue here is the monopose nature of them, the answer? A visit to the bits box for a bit of conversion. Luckily I already have some spare Primaris heads as my Deathwatch already led me to buy some multi part Hellblasters.

Here are my first six Intercessors with mainly a mix of head and hand swaps. The heads are from the Hellblaster kit, the open palm from the Devastator Sprue and the ammo clip hand is from the Deathwatch Veteran sprue:

The last guy is probably my favourite.

So what is next? Choosing which chapter to paint them as. I am leaning towards Minotaurs but also saw a cool golden scheme with blue shoulder pads. But I am damned if I can remember what chapter that is. Can anybody help?

Anyway, thanks for looking. I aim to get painting these forthwith.

So, ww2 and aerial dogfighting game aint exactly something that is overflowing the marked, infact i dont even know of any other then ares`s resent re relese of their ww2 branch, but next year we get a new one from Warlord.

Not mutch official info around yet, but BoW manged to get some info from warlord http://www.beastsofwar.com/blood-red-skies/warlord-games-teaser/)

"Blood Red Skies starts you off exploring the conflict between the British and the Germans during The Battle Of Britain in World War II. Inside the core game box, you?re going to be getting a set of Six Supermarine Spitfires and Six German Messerschmidts that will do battle in the skies over the Channel.

Planes, thanks to their flying bases, can be in three different states including Advantage, Neutral and Disadvantage. When shooting, you must do so from a state of a higher advantage than the enemy representing you zeroing in on them for the kill.
Of course, this is where the real skill of the game comes in as you try and outmanoeuvre and dodge your enemies, looking for the right time to strike. Combat seems incredibly deadly as combined strikes and working together as a squadron can end up downing planes if the enemy isn?t careful.

In true Warlord Games style, the mechanics feel easy to learn and hard to master. You?ll have a grip on the game in no time but the key positioning of your planes and choosing your targets is going to be where the growth of the game comes from."

Expected gameplay for the core box is around 45 mins, planes is in the 1/200 scale and it plays on a 4x4. you can use planes from other manufacturers but you still need the bases from BRS in order to use them.
it allso seems that there will be some elements from x-wing/armada as the game gives you the ability to mix and match different pilot cards, skill ratings, aircraft and more.


all in all, to mee it seems lik...

If you use webway infiltration on some rubric marines they can't arrive til turn 2 unless it's in your own deployment zone. If you bring them down in your own deployment zone at the end of your first movement phase can you then use the dark matter crystal to move them again anywhere on the battlefield 9" away from an enemy model? Essentially giving your rubrics a turn 1 deepstrike anywhere

Dakka Forum: Games Workshop make some models too disgusting...


Posted: 2018-09-19 19:59:07
Forum post by Corennus, 36 responses at time of this post.

Recently picked up the new First Strike box which contains 3 Intercessor space marines, 3 reiver space marines, 3 poxwalker death guard and 3 Death Guard tac squad.

And it hit me that Games Workshop has (actually for a while) really gone overboard on making Plague Marines (AND TYRANIDS) almost too disgusting.

Now, i KNOW this is just a game, and part of the "allure" of the Death Guard (apart from FRICKING DISGUSITINGLY RESILIENT!!!) is their bloated disgusting nature. But you get all ages playing this game....and some of the stuff shown is definitely rated Mature...


Do you think GW goes too far on some of its Death Guard and Tyranid models as far as gore and digustingness goes? or do you think i'm just overthinking.

Dakka Forum: Next Demon Primarch

I've seen a million discussions about the next primarch to return to the 40k setting, but not much about the demon primarchs. We have the horus heresy models, to be sure, but now is the perfect opportunity to see them in all their demonic horror. Mortarion and Magnus have both been impressive models and I imagine the others would be too. Not to mention that, lore wise, they're just waiting for a good excuse to get off their thrones. No need to worry about resurrections and like the loyalist. Well... except Konrad. So give me your predictions, or tell me what you think the coolest choice would be.

How about Angron? Armageddon could do with a round two for chaos and it's already rife with warp incursions at the moment.

Fulgrim would be a good choice now that Guilliman is back. I imagine both would be rather pissed to see the other is still standing.

It would quite the twist if Lorgar came out and confessed that he had been building the Maelstrom this entire time.

Dakka Forum: Claustrophobia 1643 Kickstarter by Monolith

So monolith will be doing a kickstarter for claustrophobia remake at the end of the year but the kicker will the be the game is already done and is on its way to shipping hubs by the time it starts.
https://www.facebook.com/notes/monolith/re-establishing-the-risk-factor-at-the-center-of-the-model/1461710807267231/

Here's the full text of the announcement from Facebook.



MONOLITH·FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 2018
As you know, Monolith has always had the ambition to use Kickstarter not as a tool for protection against risk, but as a tool for better value distribution between players and publishers. As such, we have systematically used the platform to carry out projects that would not have been profitable in an intermediated circuit, due in particular to their huge investments in development and their material content (often excessive). Up until now our offers have always been extremely advantageous for our pledgers in return for the risk that they accept (long delivery times, delay risks, errors, defects?). With time and experience (lessons learnt from previous teething problems) we have considerably improved, especially via the use of specialists for each of the key positions of the edition (at the forefront of which are Game Design and Testing, but also production and logistics: basically all these positions that remain in the wings and do not feature central stage during a campaign, but which are essential to the successful completion of a game). Strengthened by this experience and the cash flow released by our previous projects (Conan, Mythic Battles, Batman...) we have decided to take an even bigger risk by assuming everything, while maintaining an unbeatable offer for our pledgers (a value saving of up to double that of a store-bought game from an intermediated network). To do this we are going to experiment with a new model that is the result of what we have b...
