Vox Broadcast (Discussion Topics): Eldar, Initiate Nerd Rage Power! Is this balance or not? Power vs Points Return of the Big “D” Is this Fluffy Yet? Are Marines and Old Hat? Mulligans for 40K Playing Hard and Soft Playing the balance of competitive but forgiving of mistakes. Plasma Obliterator and other Limited Edition Models Limited Edition Scalpers, Prices already $150 Re-issued back to the webstore New Recruits (Hobby Updates): Dark Angels Army Chaos Army Plasma Obliterator Promethium Relay Pipes Imperial Defence Line Firebase Redoubt Aquila Strongpoint Vengeance Weapons Batteries Horus Heresy Book 3 Extermination Commanders’ Corner (Tactics and Army Building): Gun Emplacements vs Emplaced Weapons Gun Emplacements are Models Emplaced Weapons are part of the building Is “Money Hammer” the ultimate advantage? Is the ability to buy not only the “New Hotness” but to afford any number of units become a serious disadvantage to some of the more humble players? Chapter Meeting (Q&A/Discussion): Marty Milligan Is it right to punish genuine Eldar fans and players by not playing them because of their perceived broken codex? I would always give a player a chance especially in a friendly situation. But I know Chris for one is not a big fan ! Beer and Bolters 40K Alfred plays Eldar and it's always fun to play his army, but he is also a Wolf Brother... so there is that. Beer and Bolters 40K Well, my girlfriend just decided to build a small army so she can play games with me, and she decided on a mixed Craftworlds/Harlequins force (purely for fluff reasons), so I don't really have a choice... -Chris Beer and Bolters 40K I think Orks should be immune to the BladeStorm Special rule! Oktawian Rybinski Invoke the ancient rights of trial by scales. Take a squad of infantry from the Eldar player and align them on the ground. Place his new codex on top of said infantry so that they may support it. The player then must stand atop of his codex and invoke the honored chant of the bearded below chin. If the codex holds true above the floor and his unit does not fail then his cheesiness shan't be questioned again. Such is our way... so it the way of the scales. Tim Ward If you guys could make a custom space marine chapter, what would the name be, what would be the badge and what special chapter tactics would you give them? Beer and Bolters 40K That's a good one. Like a second founding or one of the lost chapters? Tim Ward Totally up to your preference Beer and Bolters 40K I guess we will have to do both! Comic Dork So in a tag team match between the team of Adam and Chris drunk as hell on 2 cases of Bloodline vs 2 neckbeards hopped up on Mountain Dew and Cheetos who would win? Beer and Bolters 40K Oh, that's an easy one. Comic Dork Ok, here's the twist. The neckbeard's moms are in their corner lol Beer and Bolters 40K We have to smack her for letting them live! David Delp So eldar? Fuck em. Beer and Bolters 40K That's going to be a common feeling it seems. Unless the points are crazy jacked up. David Delp I played them once or twice since they got their 6th codex.. I doubt I'll play them at all. No one plays them in my immediate group,
