How to roll dice: "dice+2d6" without the quotes in the email field rolls 2d6. "dice+5d42+23" rolls 5d42+23. "noko+dice+2d6" rolls 2d6 without showing the roll in the email field.

In the rules department, you can look at http://www.4chan.org/rules - all global and board specific rules are in full effect. Apart from that, only two rules are important.

>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
OnePage Rules, 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, Warmachine, Epic and anything else that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

In 40k and Warhamms/AoS yes.
Malifaux I went full 'your dudes' doing a Hospital staff with a McMourning Guild list. However everyone else has been played straight.
In Dystopian Wars, being something I bought for cheap with my brother for just small games at home, we never had anything for the British or French fleet, they were just two fleets that would battle each other.
Aye. It just feels like they took the "baseline human guy" (5s in Agility, Accuracy/Shoot, Strength/Melee, 7s in Init & Command) and made 1 change to their statline or gear selection, repeatedly, for every unit in the game.

TnT were all kind of similar due to largely being variations of humans as well, but it didn't feel so strongly similar there.

For GoA/WoE I can't tell if I'm silly for expecting much more, or what. I mean what the stats are themselves is fine to me, and I don't really expect or want 500 special abilities on everything, so...what else do I want? A few more special abilities? Stronger variations than +-1s on a stat? Dunno.
When doing historicals I will try and be as precise as possible when it comes to my dudes. Example: if it's a company-level WW2 game I will research as far down as possible (usually get stuck at regiment or battalion), find a cool engagement they were in, then build around that. In non-historicals I usually find the nicest bit of fluff in the setting to build off of, but I'm obviously way more flexible. I actively avoid any named units for those.

...Saga publications aren’t playing along with uploading...

Huh. Well that is annoying. Okay, I'll periodically post my MF trove till it inevitably gets blocked.

...Extra victory conditions...

Oooh. Nice. I will add this. Thanks!

Okay so here's what I got. Mostly the Osprey Wargames and Too Fat Lardies, and of course SAGA, with a few other bits & pieces. I have a much bigger collection at home that I do want to add over time, but it's slow going cleaning up and reformatting stuff inbetween work and actually enjoying wargaming as a hobby, so patience is required.

Goblins are fucking full-on-warcrime-monsters. Monsters with 1d6 hp are something. Monsters, who tied up a woman to a tree and flay her face, are a thing that makes players invested

Alright, name five published traditional games settings. No anon, your setting that doesn't exist and some random fanfic art doesn't count. Bonus points for sex being a regular thing and not the occasional rape.

None of them exist.

Anyone running Cyberpunk 2020 games?
I've been working on a campaign to play with my friends because I picked the core rulebook up for $6 at my local store on the used books rack, and looking at it, honestly I think it might be the best cyberpunk game system I've looked at so far.

Sure it seems kind of "antiquated" as a setting, considering it depicts the futuristic world of <next year> but it makes sense when viewed as an alternate timeline instead, I just wish more cities were given as much detail as Night City is, which gets more attention than most entire countries do in the setting.

Hawaii is described in Home of the Brave as a military area that still has large touristic spots. The US military controls the islands and the military police is the islands' only police force. Gun control is extremely strict.
Game sucks.
Probably the clunkiest system I've ever seen in a mainstream TTRPG. Lot of unecessary complications, shit like it being hard to have a fucking general high school education and specialise in something, only really being able to competently use 1 or 2 guns, basically being wet paper in combat unless you min/max for combat and nothing else, class abilities often being vague soft or situational

>Could the elder scrolls be a good tabletop or total war game
no because CA are hacks and can't handle games with multiple unique units as evidenced by the massive difference in quality between Warhammer 2 and Three Kingdoms.
Goblins and ogres are also creatures of malacath. Or at least creatures he took enough pity on to try and help.

Absolutely based
It makes sense for a beholder to give them names similar to his because beholders are extremely egotistical.
Yeah, but anon was acting like he was doing something clever that people needed to pick up on.
Used to be they got a lump on their tongue, until it grew big enough they bit it off and it became A beholderkin of sorts.
I prefer the dream bit.

anyone happen to have, or know of, a map with a whole shit ton of extra text around the borders of the image? Or maybe it was just the bottom.

It was a big ass image, water was blue, land was sandy brown. Main focus was a big sea kind of in the middle of the image that opened to the west. The bottom also had some lore and stuff with it and two moons.

I could've sworn I saved it but I can't find it anywhere. Honestly can't remember if I saw it on /tg/ itself or some link from /tg/.
I'm sorry sir but you have to go. The "10/10 Maps Club" has strict membership criteria that you do not meet.
Ah yes, once again it comes down to virgin worldbuilder vs the chat forger of worlds.

I'd assume the meme comes from the sheer number of models he's painted for tutorials, and the noticeable effect WHTV tutorials have had on the low end of painting?

I don't know about painting god, he's just a patron saint of the hobby. Nobody would call Bob Ross a painting god, but people still really enjoyed his show because of his attitude and presentation. It's the same thing for Duncan.
