    [–] Shadespire Skeletons Finished! Perditius 3 points ago in minipainting

    Looks great!!

    How do you like the game as a game so far? I'm on the fence about buying into it.

    [–] What's your opinion on players who look up optimal strategies for playing a game with a group for the first time? Perditius 4 points ago in boardgames

    I just played Gaia Project for the first time, and this was very helpful to us.

    After explaining the general (fairly complicated rules), the leader also said "and based on internet research, this is an engine building game, so you can really fall behind if you don't start right. I would recommend by the end of the first round, your goal should be to try and have (X buildings) completed, so focus toward that early on" and then he did a quick example of how he planned to do that w/ his faction in general to help us get the idea.

    [–] Amazing read to learn about most dungeon crawler board games! Perditius 4 points ago in boardgames

    You spend the Lantern Year building your settlement, pick a quarry, and fight it punch its dick off.

    FTFY

    I love the tiles from Azul. They just click and clack so nicely and are just the right satisfying weight to them.

    They also come in the easy build "First Strike" set along with some plague marines and intercessors/reivers. One of the cheapest ways to get started playing KILL TEAM if you have access to the rules already.

    [–] Advice on how to practice face painting? Perditius 1 points ago in minipainting

    Oooo I didn't even think that was a thing! Great idea. Getting 12 heads for the cost of one normal mini like that will get me further for sure!

    [–] Advice on how to practice face painting? Perditius 1 points ago in minipainting

    Ooo didn't think about having a practice metal head -- that would be more durable for sure, thanks!

    [–] What kind of plant is this? Perditius 1 points ago in aww

    Is this cat in hat?

    I love cyberpunk! Nothing has done it better than Android: Netrunner, so I'm sorry to see it retired. For some reason, board game designers trend toward fantasy and history, but so few are interested in cyberpunk!

    i love Cyberpunk! No one has done it better than Android: Netrunner, so I'm very sad to see it retired. For some reason, board game designers tend toward fantasy and history, but I wish we had more cyberpunk themes!

    [–] Especially for newbies, after teaching rules, give people an out. Perditius 5 points ago in boardgames

    If a game requires more than a 5 min rules explanation in person, I try to encourage anyone I invite to a game night to watch a review of the game and/or a quick rules explanation video.

    Weeds out a lot of people who don't think it looks fun / think it'd be too complicated for them to grasp and enjoy.

    One of my best friends tried to get me into board gaming for years, but it never clicked. Then, earlier this year, after some changes were made in my personal life, I found I suddenly had the free time and interest to be more social and spend time doing things on my weeknight evenings... and it turns out board games was that thing! After years of invites, I finally play weekly regular games with my best friend and his great group of gamers he's collected over the years, and I couldn't be more grateful.

    [–] What's the biggest Living Card Game right now? Perditius 3 points ago in boardgames

    Arkham Horror and Lord of the Rings are still going strong on the competitive side.

    How do you play competitive Arkham Horror? I thought that was a coop game.

    [–] 10 years of /r/boardgames, 10 days of giveaways: Day 3 (with prizes from Garphill Games) Perditius 1 points ago in boardgames

    Probably Concordia. The box is so slim, and it's the first game that made me like Eurogames. I will keep it there forever, just in the offchance I can ever convince anyone to play!

    [–] Does anybody know what this thing is? I’d like some info and references before I start painting. Perditius 2 points ago in minipainting

    No problem. Send me a pic of the finished mini after you paint him!!

    Also, that's from the kickstarter game "Cthulu Death May Die" by cMon. The KS for it is over, but if you like the model and art, it'll be at retail sometime next year.

    [–] Question regarding what types of units are used in this game Perditius 2 points ago in killteam

    Hahaha, excellent. Thank you so much for all your thoughtful and kind answers, man. I was very on the fence before I read your answers, but now I feel like I have a grasp on it and will definitely pursue it!

    I'm going to grab those Deathwatch guys for sure... and then I'll have to decide who else I want! I'm thinking maybe the Tau Fire Warrior strike team, just to get a little variance from "marine dudes" haha.

    [–] Question regarding what types of units are used in this game Perditius 1 points ago in killteam

    Haha, that's awesome, thank you!! I can't believe something like that never occurred to me, but that's pretty smart :) I don't think me or my friends would be a stickler for WYSIWYG, but making the team look cool is 90% of the fun to me, so that would bother me if they my team didn't look right haha.

    One last question if you don't mind:

    1) Aside from the $35 Deathwatch Kill Team model set that comes with just the figures, I see there is also a $50-60 "Deathwatch Kill Team Starter Set" that comes with the data cards and whatnot. Is this worth getting? I see the separate Data Card pack is $15 ... what exactly comes on those cards? Do I need them to play if I already have the core manual and some models?

    [–] Question regarding what types of units are used in this game Perditius 1 points ago in killteam

    Oh those comments and that link are so helpful - thank you!

    May I ask a couple questions?

    1) When you say "the kits" you buy, that's not different from the models, right? Like I buy the Death Watch guys, and then the sprues come with additional customization options? Or do I need to buy a separate customization "kit"?

    2) What do you mean by "magnets" when you mention the $35 Death Watch set? I'm new to the hobby and have never had customizable figures before -- do people actually put magnets in the their figures so they can swap loadouts on the fly?

    [–] Question regarding what types of units are used in this game Perditius 1 points ago in killteam

    Awesome - thank you for taking the time to lay that out!

    I'll probably try Chaos Space Marine or Deathwatch since they are both lowest cost in the $35 range.

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you mean by "full option" vs "full marine"?
