>>75115606 I do the reasonable thing: convert the entirety of Human History into heat energy and collect the residual spiritrons from the process to fuel my time travel to the genesis of the world. Then, I will remake the universe into one where the concept of slavery doesn't exist.

> its a BIG BOX edition
Thread for lesser known wargames that maaayyybbeee aren't big enough for their own generals.
Dropfleet/Zone Commander (unless /dcg/ comes back) Oathmark, Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings, Zone Alpha, Last Days, Wild West Exodus, Dystopian Wars, Frostgrave, Relic Blade, you name throw that shit in here. Who knows? Maybe you won't suffer alone.
>>75115832 The surviving Colonial rifles continue their attempt to disengage from the chasing Grenadiers, their highly mobile jeep-towed field guns redeploying to cover their retreat. To the west the armoured patrol attempts to stalk up and deal with the Light Tank that had been accompanying the Survey Corps, only for the radio to crackle to life in the tank and warn the crew of the danger it was facing as the armoured patrol fumbles it's activation and passes the initiative over to the Union.
Wheeling around the crew of the Light Tank managedto fire off 2 salvos of auto cannon rounds, all bouncing harmlessly off the armoured cars front armour while the second light tank maneuvers forward to attempt to catch the armoured patrol in a pincer. The Unions armoured platoon leader scuppers this plan by fumbling his command roll and passing the initiative back over to the Colonials.
The cannon of the heavy armoured car thundered out it's disapproval for this plan and once again sheared through Union armour like paper, detonating the isolated light tanks ammunition and blowing the tank apart. To the east the remains of the rifle platoon continue their retreat. The armoured patrol regroups and moves out towards the remaining Union forces, aiming to mop up the remaining armoured resistance before coming to the aid of the beleagured rifle platoon. The armoured patrol fumbles it's activation and passes the initiative back to the Union.
>>75115841 The Union armoured commander realises that he would be best served by linking up with the remains of the friendly infantry Grenadier platoon and orders a rapid movement towards their position, with the remaining light tank serving as a rear guard. The infantry Grenadier platoon fumbles it's activation and hands the initiative back to the Colonials.
The shattered remnants of the colonial rifle platoon form up at the eastern end of the road, deploying their field guns to look down the roads length as they prepare to make their final stand. To the west the armoured patrol moves up, the Heavy Armoured Car rolls into line of sight of the Light Tank, both guns roar and one more Union vehicle is left a flaming hulk while the Armoured Car trundles on, another scorch mark on it's front glacis.
And on that note, the Colonials roll a double 6 and the game ends, the Grand Union contests the eastern road, but with that final kill, the armoured patrol has managed to secure decisive control of the southern town, meaning a victory for the Loyal Colonies.
>>75115848 >The Lieutenant jumped down onto the blackened earth, eyes flicking over to his right where his riflemen searched the ruins of what once might have been a house for survivors. They wouldn't find anything the Lieutenant knew, the Grand Union was nothing if not thorough. His boots crunched through the blackened rubble of a former homestead, the smell of freshly burned wood mixing with other, fouler scents. Never any quarter given the Lieutenant thought to himself as his gaze flickered over a blackened foot, protruding from a pile of burnt wood, twisted the wrong way. And none asked, he conlcuded internally, his eyes settling on the body of a Grenadier slumped over against a wall, an uneven splotch of deep red in the centre of his chest. As the Lieutenant stepped out of the ruins, he saw the remnants of the rifle platoon straggling into the town . Too few, far too few. He began to stride over towards them, this wouldn't be an isolated incident and they had better figure out what went wrong today, they couldn't afford many more victories like these.
>>75115860 Take aways from this game, the current morale level of basically all non armoured vehicles needs lowering, as it had 0 effect on infantry in this game. The Heavy Armoured Car was the MVP, that thing chewed through whatever the Union forces threw at it, although that is partly down to the Union player choosing to rely on autocannons for his anti tank and not bringing anything with more punch. Any questions anyone has regarding mechanics or setting I'll be more than happy to answer, I'm probably going to fall asleep at any second, but I'll definitely answer when I wake back up.

>>75111730 I know the post itself is probably bait, but as a SoB player for 16 years I gotta say I really hate this idea as much as I always hated Space Marines. The sculpt isn't good, their heads are just dropped on that weird platform and the design is very unoriginal. If we were talking about bringing back the oldschool Rogue Trader era female marines I'd be down, but those 3d models are on the same level of ugly as the olschool ones are, just in a different fashion.
>>75114289 not everything is a science, but systematic explanation of everything is a science. There is literally a real world example of 'magic' ie. religion, Theology is a science about religions and theologists study it from an academic and philosophical stance, while religious people (priests, whoever else) practice it without analysing it. I don't understand why you people are so retarded about this, are you that uneducated?
>>75115921 For starters, there's no opportunity attacks unless you leave an enemy's reach, which makes it very easy to get a flank like >>75115920 mentioned. If someone is next to an enemy, you can flank them if you have enough movement.
Then there's the fact that it gives advantage, which combined with how easy it is to just flank, really nullifies a lot of other class features and options. There's very little reason for a Battlemaster to bother with Feint or Tripping attack when he can just reposition himself and get much easier advantage, or for a Barbarian to Reckless Attack when everyone is going to have advantage over everyone else so easily.
To make it work you would need to not only change the benefit, most likely to damage rather than advantage or an attack bonus, but you would also need to add some risk to actually acquiring it in more situations.
>>75115920 If flanking is so easy for you to set up, you're probably outnumbering the enemy, which means it should naturally be very dangerous for whoever's being flanked - fighting while outnumbered is, rightly, a quick way to get killed, and action economy doubles down on it.
For serious Role Playing Gamers. No freakshit. No storyshitting. No autistic worldbuilding. Just gaming.

Lets examine shall we >Leman Russ was a hypocrit for being anti psyker He was absolutely right about the spirit of Fenris and Magnus' excesses >Leman Russ defied the edict of Nikea The Space Wolves were answerable to the Empeoror or his proxy Malcador only since the begining, and were allowed to continue to use Psykers >Leman Russ shouldnt have attacked Prospero He was lawfully ordered to do so and besides offered Magnus a chance to surrender >Leman Russ should have stayed on Terra He tied up countless traitor forces while in the field, caused massive casualties and material damage. >Leman Russ should not have faced Horus He severely wounded Horus, making him a non factor for most of the siege of Terra. Malgohurst also sacrificed himself to heal the mortal wound Russ gave Horus, Malgohurst was the only other being besides Horus himself capable of maintaining any order over the other traitor legions.
>>75113829 He wasn’t really though. I mean stoic sure, but he performed well in the courts of Terra & he had a magnetism that caused people to follow him without thinking. His only “flaw” was that he judged everyone against himself & amongst his brothers he found little in the way of equals. He was better than them & thought them weak. The Heresy proved his judgement sound

>>75114703 >>75114872 Yup. Coven leaders were usually known as high priestesses. If you want a simple mechanical distinction say that witches can cast both normal and reverse spells but take away heavy and medium armor. You can also make their holy symbol the moon which means half the time they turn undead and the other half they command them. Up to you what happens on new and full moons.
>>75092431 I played a LG cleric of St. Cuthbert to 15th level. Full disclosure, we spent one year, including a very rigorous summer vacation, getting to name level. Our DM went off to college and when he got back he gave us bonus levels because he wanted to run Q1 Demonweb Pits. As the preamble to this most of the PCs got a solo quest to gain another level or two and get a big reward at the end. I got the Mace of St. Cuthbert artifact. It was also the first time I drank beer without adult supervision. Long story short, we never finished Q1 and it turned into warring factions between newly empowered PCs. And now that I've reviewed the PHB casting chart I must've gotten to 16th level or higher because I know I used Holy Word all the time.
>>75112533 RoCC is pretty dope. If you want tougher monsters look for Cthuloid Bestiary. Most creatures have more HD and developed qualities. It's in the trove. For the record I think 7HD is fine for a shoggoth. They're not war-machines, they're workers. Give em +30hp or limited regeneration if you think they don't have enough staying power.
