    Will There be toilet paper at the BAO?

    • Reecius February 3, 2015 9:35 am #

      Lol, yes.

        Can’t wait to get my ticket. Sadly I won’t have anything resembling a good army by then. Unless there are some ig formations released before then.

        • Reecius February 3, 2015 11:52 am #

          Astra Militarum don’t even need formations, honestly, they’re awesome on their own.

            And they have one excellent and one decent formation even as things stand.

            Yeah, true. Steel Legion is an awesome one.

    Reecius you should consider investing in a better microphone, because every microphone is better then the one you use now.

    Keep up the good work, love your contend!

    • Reecius February 3, 2015 11:13 am #

      Yeah, sorry about the shit quality at present, we’re skyping the calls for now, it won’t be that way for much longer.

    Reecius – On seeing those dream pod counters I was thinking about your personal dice/markers box. How about a opening up your game box in a video report, and doing a how/what you use the markers for during a game and all. Seems basic but inquiring minds want to know 🙂 Not to mention where we can buy them from – hint, hint 🙂

    • Reecius February 3, 2015 11:52 am #

      That’s actually a really good idea, Greg!

    That lightning is beautiful!

    • TinBane February 3, 2015 4:06 pm #

      Oops, thunderbolt 🙂
      Wondered why it looked different from the Voss pattern.

    Interesting that the decurion detachment is not only legal for LVO without modification but only takes up one of the 2 detachments allowed (even though a decurion is made up of potentially dozens of repeatable detachments).

    Not opposed (points and requirements are definitely a limiter), just was not the direction I figured it would go.

    can’t wait for the BAO and Wargames con!

    Frontline is coming to Austin? And this year the date is 6 weeks before the Texas bar exam, not on the same weekend? This means I finally get to meet Reecius and the rest of the Frontline people, haha.

    The GW promo applies to anyone who spends at least a certain amount in equivalent of USD. However, GW are picky bastards, aren’t they. There’s two exclusions.

    Perhaps one is the tyrannical upper class of North Korea? Nope.
    Maybe they are excluding countries where the rich are propped up by military coups? Nope.

    GW want everyone to enter, unless they are from Australia and New Zealand. It seems like GW are going to hate on Australia, until they are better than us at Cricket (NEVER), and the same for New Zealand with Rugby. It’s the only explanation that makes ANY sense whatsoever.

    Does anyone else have an explanation?

    • Reecius February 4, 2015 3:16 pm #

      Thanks for the clarification!
