>What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or peoples' homebrew wargames. The Historical Wargames General doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, let's talk about fun wargames.

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

When do I get a moth waifu?

On top of that, Warlord had churned out a decent amount of metal models for Test of Honor. So if this dies we'll maybe we'll get new models in the future.
Educate me on KoW deployment?
Assume I'm the Herd, to simplify the large impact of terrain on your lines.
Because enemies must stay a minimum of 25mm away at all times except a charge, you can leave 73mm gaps without Cav individuals slipping through a gap. If not protecting War Machines (hey, I did say Herd), you may be able to do 88mm, as the smallest base that gets flank/rear multipliers is usually a lone Large Inf? (However, Inspiring has a 150mm range from the edge of the model's base, so anything but chaff should have its line tightened up.)
Chaff options in your army permitting, is it smart to take enough chaff units to make a skirmish line across the entire 72-(2.5*2)=67 inches of the table?
Individuals can't get flank bonuses, nor do you get flank bonuses from attacking them. It's mostly monsters and some large inf heroes that would be the smallest guys who benefit.

Using chaff across an entire line isn't worth it unless you are playing Ratkin or something similar IMO. Screen off key units and perhaps use flyers to tie up key enemy units to buy precious time for you to set up a charge.

ADB is a narcissist, he takes intense pleasure from rewriting established lore and making it more to his liking. He removed Chaos Undivided (which not only destroys a concept from the start of Warhammer but also a large chunk of 40k) to push Abaddon (who he has clear bias towards), he rewrote the War in Heaven to make it all about Eldar and Necrons teaming up to fight Chaos. There is so much more wrong, but that's just for starters.

>Just look at how France is burning.
France is burning becaue the French are addicted to the welfare state, their budget is bleeding money and every time someone tries to reform it they get a fucking riot on their hands until the leader dies, flees or grovels and gives them more free shit.

Now fucking Italy -ITALY- is mocking France for its budget deficit. Which had only recently dipped below 3% for the first time in a decade. I T A L Y.
Italy is getting cocky
They're rightfully mocking France though. If


is mocking you, then you're doing something horribly wrong. Not that the French care, the ones I've spoken on r/europe constantly come up with retarded arguments like
>hurr durr this is all about muh economy, not about the people
>hurr durr these companies (and completely normal, minimum wage earning people) deserved to have their property smashed, that's the only way people will learn
The French absolutely do not care about their country. They care about how much they can squeeze out of it like a bunch of parasites.

Imagine you have tactical marines already mounted in rhinos. You declare a charge, then move the rhino up to its speed of 30cm. You can disembark anytime along the vehicle's move, and have to be placed up to 5cm away from the vehicle - so in this example, if you move the full 30cm the rhino has, you can then place the troops to within 5cm of the rhino and that's your total charge move.
whoa whoa whoa hold the phone

can you continue moving the rhino after you disembark?

or does disembarking end the move?
Interesting, thanks. Is there any requirement that they be COMPLETELY within 5cm, or can you squeeze out the width of their base as well?
I’m feeling charitable right now, but seriously read the fucking rulebook.
You can by why would you? Coherency is usually 5cm.

Should I get Genesys, Fate, Savage Worlds, or GURPS?
114 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
so you are saying that all dice are gimmicky unless they are commonly used? thats a meager explanation. by that logic, even the genesys dice arent gimmicky if more people played the system
Yes. If everyone used genesys dice and someone started using d6 in order to try and stand out, it would be a gimmick.

Mostly due to how the dice are read/interpreted than anything else.
- Add the result? Fine
- Explosions/botches? ...OK
- Count successes/margin of success? Maybe...

Beyond that though, I'm out. Something like TOR where it's mostly numerical, but with a few special results is about the limits of what I can be bothered to include...
please make up your mind, do you think the genesys dice are gimmicky because they are not commonly used, or because you think ffg is trying to stand out? because neither of those are what gimmicky means

keep in mind, i only want to understand why people disdain genesys dice, or what is so bad about them.
ok, so i saw the dice and read about this "yes, and" "no, but" stuff, which seems to be the problem if i understand correctly.

is it just that, that its weird to add up results without numbers, or the need to account for side effects themselves that is problematic?

This thread is for the discussion of the setting, its various facets and lore, and assorted matters in regards to its use and implementation.

Here, discuss the ongoing war between Papa Snake and Gaia for the fate of all mankind, the tragic fall of the Snakepeople of Mars, and the rise of the Gaian conspiracy.

Salute Snake, brothers and sisters.

I like this
I mean, depending on how grimdark we want to get, if Luna and Gaia are in a "relationship", I'd imagine it more akin to an abuser (Gaia) and a victim (Luna).
I like the idea of the Brotherhood of the Serpent (connected to Mars) and Daughters of Lilith (connected to Venus) both struggling again the warped Gaian mission to save the world by destroying its peoples.

Despite their gendered names, the two groups now accept men and women alike. The Serpent Cult have already been written up better than I could manage, so I might as well get started on the Lilim.

The Lilim have a nearly anarchistic structure, working in individual cells that choose prospective members by consensus. New cells are formed when a group of Lilim decide to leave their cell(s) and form a new one.

This opposition to hierarchy creates friction with the Snek Bros, but they have enough in common to want to work together. The Lilim are strong believers in personal freedom, and acknowledge that the Gaians would smother all society and force everyone to conform to Gaia's will, keeping humanity down so they would always be dependent on their mother. Thus, the Lilim and the Snek Bros will often fight together.

The Lilim use strange magical rites to channel the power of their still-living goddess; while the Brotherhood of the Serpent are the pinnacle of mundane humanity, the Lilim have abilities that don't follow that line. Their powers are not subtle; when they heal, bones are snapped into their position, torn flesh is forced back together, and poisons are literally ripped from the victim's system. When they turn their skills to violence, they command the storm-winds and the freezing rain.

This is one outward sign of the Daughters of Lilith's fundamental nature; they are untamed force and power, driven to break bonds that keep them from realising their potential. They are driven more by their own passions than anything else, and so they are feared by friend and foe alike. At the moment, the stifling, smothering world the Gaians serve threatens their freedom more than the civilisation and knowledge of the Serpent, so for now, they often aid the Sneks.
The issue I see now is coming up with a fitting aesthetic for them; I'm not good at that sort of thing, so I'll have to leave that to someone else.
I like the idea above that the people of Venus have fallen to sloth and self interest and think that the chosen of Lilith on earth, though they would be against Gaia, would take a more passive and less unified role in the fight.

It is a really terrible idea unless your campaign revolves around it.

If you must use Leadership, have followers be warriors/experts/commoners and cohorts be clones from toons in the NPC Codex.
>Punching like a level 45 Monk
How do you even calculate that when there's no damage increase past 20?
Where’s the faith?! Just one more day, one more day, and we’ll be in Hermea eating mangoes!
The damage caps at 20, which is why by that level you get out of those scratchy robes and get something better for your magical slot.
>cohorts be clones from toons in the NPC Codex
It came up a couple of threads ago, but I've always preferred using the actual Iconics as cohorts. Free art, gives them a use beyond looking good, and we've made decent use of most of them.

Except Kyra, she's been off limits since there was a somewhat awkward moment where a PC alignment shifted to Evil by sacrificing his cohort.

If you managed to direct Ivy's obsession, you'll be obscenely powerful. There aren't many Heroes that are technically immune to her drugs, and with your mind control, you could convince her to take the slow burn.
Have her concoct a new miracle plant that produces food and wood in abundance, can live everywhere, fast growing, feeds on plastic, can function as an aphrodisiac, can be raised by an amateur, smells nice,...etc. Then spread it on social media.
One of its hidden functions will be a serum not unlike the one Ivy uses to turn others into her thralls, but this one is for you. You can take over the world peacefully at first, then either quickly convert the stragglers, or better yet just screw around with them (everybody aside from them can't see you, traffic somehow concentrates on them...etc).

>tfw Elves are portrayed as being hippy-dippy forest dwellers and not ancient ultraconservative lunatics

If elves existed IRL, they would still have PTSD from wars that were fought with spears. Some of them would still be bitter over the fall of Feudalism, to say nothing of modern social issues. They would still be holding grudges older than the English language.
But instead of being portrayed as the penultimate asshole geriatrics, they're usually just pompous foffs who like trees.
Elves should occupy the Dwarves' usual niche of being dynasty-focused conservatives with unintelligible accents.

I mean there are some pretty bad violent terrorists that target Yu Jing. We at least know the Takenotai explicitly do not conform to the 'military targets' prohibition of the Kempeitai and kill civilians. I'm sure whenever one of them are caught, there's a very good chance to they're turned into Kuang Shi. However, it's probably beyond naive to think the ISS of all people are careful about who they turn into zombies. The ISS had one job, and they couldn't even do that right.

Would it be feasible for a suitably degenerate Imperial Agent to use Kuang Shi as sex toys, or are their minds too filled with patriotic thoughts?
>hacker has disabled this shit and let the Wu Ming go ham on their own commanding officers

The fact that Wu Ming are in Ikari implies that some do escape and go rogue.

Well... you can always give them a little "extra punishment"

I would say they were created by the force for a purpose like Anakin was, the Father does say to to Anakin "We are neither Jedi or Sith, we are much more. And so are you." They're confirmed to be actual physical beings in canon too so I agree.
Essentially, yes. They saw the T2-B, saw it looked the right shape for an AVRE, and made an AVRE....which has stats suiting an M8 HMC(The Stuart modded with the short barrel 75mm), but with a Spigot.
Hence the mindfuck. I guess with this in mind, the Black Prince would be the 17 Pdr. mod for the M10?
I mostly liked the whole idea of the Force family, though I had a couple of problems with its execution. Firstly that we just got the same old stuff of the dark side being the worst thing ever. I'm not saying that isn't true within the boundaries of the setting, but I'd have been much more interested in seeing what might happen if the Daughter was the threat instead of the Son.

Second, they all die. Or at least seem to. Discounting whether entities such as they (or at least what they appeared to be) can truly die, I guess something just cheesed me off about the heroes of the show destroying a part of their own religion and not really reacting to it in a big way.

Like when Jedha gets nuked in rogue one, people are upset about the population all being killed (which is, admittedly, horrific), but nobody seems to care about the countless eons of history and religion which were just wiped out in the blink of an eye. Not even the monk who's lived there all his life.
