Re: BW 2018 Feedback

If your plan was to simplify, I'm not sure this does the job. HOWEVER - if these rules are more intuitive to you, then absolutely go ahead and use them. These are fine house rules. Shoving and grabbing come up rarely enough that I'm not all that worried about the confusion, and I want to limit how ...

Re: BW 2018 Feedback

The grabbing and shoving rules seem to cause a lot of confusion, and get in the way of the 2018 streamlined rules. Can we think of a way of generalizing all attacks and making grab and shove special effects of certain weapons? The currebt rules as is are good, and possibly offer decent tactical vari...

Re: Mecha Hiitler Vs Churchill

Are you ASSUMING that I'm a Piltogg? I didn't say that. What I said was that you're eager to post joking-not-joking stuff to offend people. Jumping into every conversation about n azis and getting weirdly excited about pissing people off with fascism is who you are on this forum. I felt I needed th...

Nah, I want you to build a Stalin mech. We need something to fight the Uncle Sam mech!

All that being said, I laughed harder at this battle than any in probably years.
Thanks Mike.
Ben, the main creator of all the Lego in this has signed up and is waiting for approval.

Oh man Doctor Poo and the POODIS

Now that's the best thing I've seen on the forum ever.
I think I might have seen that one on someone else's AAR. Either that or I saw a TARDIS made out of a modified portaloo and got inspired by that.

Re: Mecha Hiitler Vs Churchill

This is the only photo we have of our previous battle on Ben's main map https://i.imgur.com/5Jm0nwJ.png An allied dropship landed outside Cafe Renee to capture several objectives and prepare for D Day. There was some great fighting and piled of bodies inside Cafe Renee. The allies looked dominant so...

Mecha Hiitler Vs Churchill

My friend Ben is really into Lego and has recently build loads of WW2 stuff for his son. This is a battle we had recently - I've realised that Adolf's name is automatically changed in this forum - I apologise if this is not appropriate for the forum, but I've spent ages typing it out so I'm going to...

Re: BW 2018 Feedback

The hands rule works very well for non combat specialists - give them a thing that they have to carry that makes them worse in combat for extra utility outside of it. If it's a more combat oriented specialist it gets harder to do that with hands though, as most would like both hands for combat. The ...

Re: BW 2018 Feedback

Hi Apologies for the double post. I think the rulebook does a brilliant job of introducing concepts in an understandable way, but I think it's not as strong as a reference document. I thought it would be good to try and make a flowchart for combat so I'd remember what order to do things and remember...

Re: BW 2018 Feedback

I packed the more complex fighting into the Hero's Dueling specialty, with the idea that eventually I'll spread it around to other close combat focused specialist units. The trick is figuring out where the risk/reward decisions are going to be interesting, and where they're just extra complexity wi...

Re: Newbish n00b questions, MkII

Hi I've been playing around with the rules for a while now but I'd like clarification on a few things. I know, I know, I should just fudge it, and I apologise for being anoraky, but I like to know the rules fully so I can decide when and where to fudge it depending on my mood and the number of units...

Re: BW 2018 Feedback

Hi I think the icons in the capitalism table for supports are mixed up. As for feedback, I've played a few games with 2010 vs 2018 rules for CC. I'm not sure which one I like more. I think I much prefer parrying only with shields, having the option to parry with weapons promoted passivity and defens...
