    [–] What do you mean your list isnt 90% bikes? Thefirstmelon 7 points ago in Grimdank

    Never apply that inflection to the word 'daddy' again

    [–] My favorite film of all time Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in PrequelMemes

    I've done a 'drink for every meme' for RotS twice and was absolutely hammered by the end both times.

    Play it again, Jonny GuitAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAr

    [–] People not believing I have seizures or I have saying I don’t have REAL epilepsy. (Vent) Thefirstmelon 4 points ago in Epilepsy

    Thanks for understanding. It really got me down, and my university mentors couldn't do anything to help because she was a 'reputable and respected friend of the uni'.

    But hey, I just finished my second-chance placement today and will get my teaching licence next month. It always turns out alright in the end.

    [–] People not believing I have seizures or I have saying I don’t have REAL epilepsy. (Vent) Thefirstmelon 8 points ago in Epilepsy

    I understand that pain. I had to re-do my last 8-week teaching placement because my mentor would complain that I kept rolling my eyes at staff and children. I tried to make her understand that I was diagnosed with absence epilepsy but shed accuse me of taking advantage of people with a serious disability when I was "just being disrespectful"

    [–] When have you been genuinely scared for you life? Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I suffer from absence epilepsy and one day when I was in my early teens I had an absence when crossing a busy road with my beloved dog. Came back into control of my body just before being hit. Thankfully my dog pulled me back out of harm's way.

    Still haunts me to this day.

    I saw this posted here just the other day

    [–] The Blessed Lady, Cyrene Valantion, and her bodyguards. Thefirstmelon 2 points ago in Warhammer40k

    Aww, I got hyped that there was a follow up novel that further followed the serrated sun (Gal Vorbak) further throughout the heresy.

    Hold up there was another one? I really enjoyed first heretic but I've started another series now. Thanks for the heads up anyway.

    [–] What could you talk about for 30 minutes straight without any preparation? Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My jobs also an easy convo starter because everyone has something to say about school and the teachers that work there.

    [–] Combining two strengths of same Keppra? Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in Epilepsy

    I take a 1000g and two 250g capsules of Kepra morning and night. Doesn't cause me any trouble. Go ahead man.

    [–] Temporal Lobe Epilespy Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in Epilepsy

    Haha! Tell me about it, I've never been an organised person so writing lists and such doesn't come well to me.

    This sub has been a huge relief to me. It's been slowly getting on my nerves (over the past 10 years) that whenever I tell people about my epilepsy it always comes back to 'don't look at flashing lights lol'- something I'm not even effected by.

    I don't blame people for thinking this (flashing light sensitivity is the only thing ever mentioned about epilepsy). It's just nice to spend time with people who understand the daily struggle.

    Anyway, rant over.

    [–] So are you Lorgar(not OC) Thefirstmelon 3 points ago in Grimdank

    I see where your coming from. I only finished the book the other day so I'm still in the honeymoon period.

    That being said, I felt that Argel was a reluctant villain that was loyal to Lorgar first and big E second. He was stuck between watching the chapter slowly degenerate and being a loyal marine- something he only disclosed to Syrene because she was blind and whould not judge his demonic appearance.

    That and spending half a year in the warp being forced to consume your dead comrades to survive does something to your character.

    [–] Temporal Lobe Epilespy Thefirstmelon 1 points ago in Epilepsy

    Holy moly I'm glad I found this subreddit. I'd always thought that my memory might be affected by my epilepsy, but my doctor never really looked into it.

    I've kinda come to live with it now, but I wish it wasn't so bad. I mean, just the other day I went shopping and stood in the aisle for about 5 mins trying to remember what it was I went for. Still forgot milk...

    Sorry for long post, but reading all these posts are really cathartic for me. I was diagnosed at 10 years old (11 years ago) and have never really met another epileptic.

    [–] I know it's not very good as a spell but the mini needed to be painted at least lol. Thefirstmelon 2 points ago in ageofsigmar

    Hey man, don't get yourself down. If I could paint this well I'd be really chuffed. This is good stuff. I especially like the dirty look of the skull.

    [–] So are you Lorgar(not OC) Thefirstmelon 29 points ago in Grimdank

    Nah man, I just finished 'the first heretic' the other day and Argal Tal is a total bro.

    [–] Question on cult ambush Thefirstmelon 2 points ago in genestealercult

    Cult ambush is our core tactic but it's also very confusing. Dont worry about needing a few games to iron out the kinks.

    With a stratagem (perfect ambush I think) you can set up an ambushing unit 3" away instead of 9". However you cannot make a charge if you so this- but you can shoot (think masses of handflamers).

    But that doesn't mean that you cant make reliable charges. There are quite a few units, relics and warlord traits that help with making charges.

    As to the markers (blips), a general rule of thumb is to reveal them after your opponents first move.

    Its tricky to get a hold of, but once you do it's super rewarding.
