    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    Have you been using the beta rules for Bolters? Whilst they'll still look a little lackluster compared to your plasma, the extra shots can make a difference. Admittedly, if you're mostly facing Primaris then they'll see the benefits more than you do.
  2. Think Pink! I've hunted down a brace of alien rabbits, then done it again after not realising that the only way to leave the Plains of Eidolon without losing everything is via the gate, and our Pink Pigment research is now underway.
  3. I'm Tilari in game, in case there are still any spaces available in the initial Clan ranks.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    I've bought into this for the third time, and had been amazed at the speed of leveling compared to the original PC release. That was until I read a guide to Seasons which suggested 2-3 hours play was a reasonable time for hitting level 70 - I think I've got a while to go before I hit that kind of optimisation. Anyhow, my friend code is SW-2909-5921-9098 and I'm always happy to run around exploding corpses with strangers.

    The Haunting of Hill House

    After watching the first half of the season on Friday I managed to finish this off yesterday. It's easily been my favourite series of the year, and is something which will stay with me for a while. I think the structure was fantastic - not just the way time and scene jumps were used, but also the little background touches which are never explicitly acknowledged. Whilst the characters are still broad stereotypes (a point nicely summed up in one scene between Steve and his Dad), I felt that enough time was spent with them to make the punches land that bit harder when they came.

    Warhammer 40k Kill Team GW Campaign NOOBS WELCOME!

    In case anyone missed it, GW released the first set of FAQs/Errata for Kill Team last week. There are a few rule changes, so it's well worth taking a look through the documents. FAQ: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/kill_team_designers_commentary_en-1.pdf Errata: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/kill_team_errata_en-1.pdf
  7. Game Collection have both the Switch and PS4 versions in stock - they're £35.10 with the code TGCEXTRA5 this weekend. I've ordered it for the Switch, as I'd guess it'll be hard to find outside the launch window and it's a better price than £50 on Steam.

    Star Wars!

    You also need to hang onto your bomb templates, as the Conversion Kits don't come with any. I spent about three hours punching tokens and sorting cards as I unpacked the starter set and three kits yesterday, then another twenty minutes going through my paper recycling bin trying to reclaim the bits I shouldn't have thrown away.

    Do/did your parents game?

    My Dad taught computing at the local college, so we had a BBC B not long after they were released. He was a huge fan of the Repton games, and I remember sitting and watching him play through them - he won a Repton mug for being among the first to complete Repton 3. He bought me a C64 when I was about 8, and later on we ended up with an Amiga A500, as he wanted to play Populous. In later years he lost interest in faster paced stuff, but still spent hours playing various simulation games. Sadly, Cancer got him ten years ago, so I've no idea what he'd have been playing now - I'd imagine he'd still have a decent PC, and almost certainly an iPad. He's definitely to blame for my lifelong gaming habit.

    Gaming surfaces

    You could always take a look at Yoga Mats, as they're usually either made from neoprene or a similar non-stick surface over a foam backing. They're generally 6ft x 2ft, so are a good size for gaming tables. Two of them may only set you back about £20ish, compared to about £60 for a printed 6x4 from Deep-Cut or UrbanMatz. That said, I've got about 10 neoprene gaming mats hanging around the house, and I absolutely love them. I've just received one of Deep-Cut's 6x3 Wild West mats, which is great for Star Wars Legion.

    All Grainger Games stores are now closed

    This is a real shame, as i’ve used them on and off since they had the old fixed stall in the Grainger Market. The Pontefract branch was the kind of place you could still stand and talk gaming with the staff, so best of luck to them and everyone else who is affected by this.
  13. The offer's finally gone live on the UK Xbox store: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/d/xbox-one-x-1tb-console/8nq33jvv1s9v/lwmm?ocid=SalesandspecialFR_Q3_feature1_Halo_5_bundle I've got to admit that I'd given up hope, so picked up a One X from Grainger Games yesterday. At least it came with the month's free Game Pass trial, which gives you a second month for free (assuming you've never tried the service before).

    SNES Mini

    Whilst Amazon are showing as sold out, I've just managed to order one via Prime Now for delivery sometime between 10 and 12 this morning (I'm in the Leeds delivery area). £80 rather than £70, but better than eBay.
