PostSubject: DOZER'S FINAL BASH - It's freaking Chaos, baby!   Fri Sep 03, 2010 9:59 am


Well... another chapter in on what is Death Squads closes. Our dear friend and fellow Developer is moving away from Fort Myers to Miami (Florida, USA), thanks to a new wonderful opportunity that is just too good to pass. He will be able to get more economically stable, grow as an individual, a professional and human being. Well... I may be stretching the truth on the last one, but this is not the time for technicalities. Regardless, we decided to say farewell to our good friend doing the 1st 2nd 3rd best thing we could do... What?!?! You do want to your Fiancé to keep you around and you do not want to be arrested... a final bash of Death Squads!!!

We decided on a 1,500 credits, +12 XP to all Officers, +6 XP to all Recruits, free selection on all Advancements, no Rarity rolls on items for our final encounter. jd3 brought his Eldar, Dozer brought his Chaos Undivided Cultists the Mordheimer (that's me!!!) brought his Champions of Khorne and DaBank was the cheerleader... hehehe... he summarized the new rules best ("Who cares... it's freaking Chaos, baby!")game best.. Our Scenario was Capture the Portal, basically you needed to have one of your models standing on the Portal (center of table) for one full round. Well... we made our Squads. Will all that 'power' we decided to try and break the game... and crap we DID! Interesting points...

Everyone
- Were afraid of the Eldar... so we ganged up on poor jd3. It got ugly... fast.


jd3
- Showing how GREAT the man is, he resisted ALL of our cheating. See below. confused
- The Warp Spider Exarch was AWESOME! Teleportation proved fun but not over-powerful. Another master-design!
- Eldars with Long-Las Rifles are INSANE. Not Cheese ... it was OK.
- How can a stupid Guardian KILL my Bloodletter?!? That is NOT right!
- The fact that I was playing Khorne, did not gave YOU the right to scream "Blood for the Blood God!" every time you killed one of my Cultists.
- Wraithcanons are fun... specially when not used against me!


Dozer
- Inadvertently (or so he claims) he had FIVE Heavy Bolters on his Squad! The HB are restricted to having the Mark of Chaos Undivided as well as the Weapons Training (Heavy Weapons) Skill. So he met THOSE requirements... and used other Advancements to have BS 5.
- His HB were equipped with Extended Magazines (think of them as a disposable +1 shot for a whole game). This means that the range 30", S5 weapon shot D3+1 shots.
- What Dozer forgot (or so he claims) is that the user ALSO needs to have S4 to use the weapon.


Mordheimer
- I broke the "new, improved & revised" Frenzy. We had 'fixed' this thing... but my Champion of Khorne did EXACTLY what jd3 predicted 14 months ago. I had EIGHT attacks.
- I broke the "new, improved & revised" Berserker Glaive (Khorne, Leader Only weapon)... combined with Frenzy, the weapon made sure to keep its nickname as "The Stick of Kick-Ass".
- Did I mentioned I also had TWO (illegal) Heavy Bolters? Poor Jamie... 7 Heavy Bolters... thus DaBank's genius conclusion "Who cares... it's freaking Chaos, baby!"


We laughed, cried, danced and ALMOST got kicked out of the store (again... but this time I was not screaming Waaagh!) We decided to restrict Heavy Weapons in a Squad to a max of TWO (play-testing on a campaign could tell us if 3 is acceptable), Frenzy will probably be removed (it IS broken and Twisted that a Slaneesh-sponsored orgy!) as well as other fixes. All in all, great times! DaBank will post pics later.


@ Dozer: Thank you for your time, dedication, teachings and overall friendship. You will be 'only' 3 hours away, so we see each other later. Good luck on your new chapter. You DESERVE all what is good coming to you (as well as all the bad... you bastard!) Good luck forming a new Death Squads Group in Miami. Remember... everyone is pretty in Miami, so your group MUST be made up of just hot-chicks. I'm warning you... we want PICS! Wink Take care buddy... remember, it is always 4:30pm somewhere!

This was nice and for Dozer i hope you keep playing Death Squads and make more people join the cult. I know how it feels to move away from everything since i did it a couple of months ago, so what i did since no body plays miniatures where i live, i made my own warhammer table and play death squads either with people i met or my step brother which by the way is a ork player. just keep in touch with the forums i always like seeing your stuff.

Thanks guys! Last night was an absolute blast. Unfortunately Jamie caught the short end of the stick in that game. First round of shooting saw his Wraithguard get blasted by 18 Heavy Bolter shots by me alone........ Who knew that Cultists could stand and shoot??

Irregardless we all had fun, with lots of laughs on both sides. I am sure he got a pretty good chuckle out of the look on my face when he told me what the wraithcannon does, as it was targeted at my Chaos Space Marine.....

It was a great time, and we had a great run.

Any of the group in and around the Miami area, let me know!! I'll be trying to start a group up over there.

Three things

#1: Wait you forgot Andy! Shocked What!? He didin't do any cool stuff in your game? He is not wothey of note? (sept for that one line! LOL! nice one man!) Poor DB! Nobody loves him!

#2: Good Luck DoZer! You insane, inhuman scum!

#3: The most importent thing is: how come I don't get a cool gameing grupe like you guys!?! Nobody loves me! Crying or Very sad Sad

EDIT: Also do you notice that jd3 looks like he has a "I'm going to rip your face off" look to his face and eyes and DB looks like he has no clue whats going on?

:@:dwi: HAHAH!!! LOL Funny! DaBank just got out of one of those crazy 11 hours work days he always tell us about, so he was just going to stop by 'for a little while'... he stayed for 2 hours! I guess his job was making sure we were not cheating... EPIC FAIL! I wished he had time to play his IG's... our collective loss. Seriously, DaBank always comes with the weird one-liners at the right time... made me spill root-beer out of my nose!

jd3's face... maybe this picture was taken just after we figured out there were 7 Heavy Bolters on the table (chances are only 3 were legal!)

Haha! Awesome to see you all in person (well, sort of).

But what I can't abide is the lack of pics. Cool comments galore, but no pics to prove it! Show me pics! I love pics!

Were seriously going to miss you Dozer!

Was a fun game even in spite of the Chaos guys making Elf burgers for the Blood God. Hell, the jokes were pretty awesome and we pretty much laughed throughout the entire game.

I really feel that the Eldar horribly failed mainly because I...

1. Split up a force, which primarily wins by using mobility to concentrate firepower on isolated units, against two separate super-squads.

2. Unlike my opponents: I Forgot to cheat. Mr. Burns

3. Tim's dice mojo left him and temporarily (please god, only temporarily) infected my dice.

While our accelerated squads are unlikely to ever be seen in a campaign as we chose skills and attributes without restriction, I think a few balance issues were discovered and will be addressed in the next TLRB.

Tim, you need to come back to play every so often!

Frenzy = multiplicative modifiers are bad, m'kay?!

Yes, jd3... you forgot yo cheat, like always. WAIT... not always. When you start making those weird stuff with the Power and the Re-rolling and the Psykers and the weapons and the Linking... aren't you cheating? I can't never follow... Just Kidding

And yes... we will probably scratch Frenzy all together. You are 100% right that those "multiplicative modifiers are bad", but toning down Frenzy to +1 Attack seems so lame... I rather remove it all together. That way it remains like Fox Network, fair and balanced (link 1, link 2, link 3) {HAHAHA! The same joke, TWICE!} We need to discuss about this later.

I think you should have some kind of berserk/frenzy rule in the game. It gives character! +1 A is fine.

I agree... but just +1 A seems... errr... LAME. Sorry... re-ocurring joke with Lord GreyWolf. My point is that we need to put our collective Ninja minds and come with a nice solution. I mean, we are trying (very hard) to avoid super stats and codex-creep. IMHO, that is the easy way out. It starts with T5 and ends up with Deepstriking LandRaiders! Puke I like Dozer's approach to several things... little power, but the chance to combine it with other things to make it WAY better. The end result being much greater than just the sum of their parts. I'm running a blank now... and being sick (and children being sick) is not helping! HA! But at least we have a Plan B (the +1 Attack) in case something fails.

See what I meant, Weird WWII? We 'cheat'! I always wonder how is the game so balanced if we keep breaking the rules. Just Kidding I miss the good old days.
