I'm thinkin' back to the days when it really was a bubble-field, and didn't work against attacks made from inside the field.


Yeah, 2nd Edition was awesome like that.

Quit reading Dune!


2nd edition actually, conversion fields use to work the same way.

2nd was awesome.

Trump: "Yeah, that’s her. With the fiat currency. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful countries — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the electoral college. You can do anything."

Wasn't it Power Fields that worked that way?

Refractor, Conversion and Displacer worked always, Power Fields were only against shooting (to balance the fact that they were 2+ Invul saves).

2nd edition reminds me of an Internet meme:

Yo dog, I heard you like tables. So we put tables inside of tables so you can roll on tables while you roll on tables.

But there is no other game where I could throw a virus grenade and wipe out 3/4 of the opposing Orks in turn one.

No save against models with I1.

Yep, you are correct. Been a few years I guess. Anyhow, while I was doing my sanity check... I saw the stats for Melta Missile. That would be a cool return! With Skyfire...

Conversion field didn't have a bubble, it worked like a Flash Grenade when hit. Hence the story of Vandire blinding the assembled Daughters of the Emperor.

Power Fields didn't either, but they did make you count as encumbered (-1 in CC)

The helmet the Watcher carries contains a bubble conversion field.

The "bubble reference" was only to illustrate that CC attacks aren't defended with the old Power Field. Geez...

AS this is all out and "in the wild", gonna lock this thread now. Feel free to continue related discussions in the relevant 40k board.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
One reason a good humanities education is important for computer scientists is that a familiarity with Faust is useful for understanding how privacy policies work.
