you receive 1 bonus empire point which MUST be applied immediately to that Hex."

Hey John, I'm actually running Chaos Undivided (not Slaanesh) with an Exalted Sorceror as my General Lord-choice (not a Chaos Lord), with Galrauch as my special character.

John said...

No Tomb Kings? Come on. Who doesn't love a good lot of skellies...

Old Coast said...

Josh- updated!

Yeah, some Tomb Kings would be great
I know a guy working on the coolest TK army ever, bascially huge amounts of conversions and expert GS work.
It won't see the light of for awhile however.

Josh said...

Anthony's been making noises about bringing out the TK...that would be some craziness.

Bill said...

Pfft, I can't see Anthony ever putting away his O&Gs...

Also are my skellies not enough? heh

John said...

I'm in the very very very initial stages of possibly maybe at some indeterminate point getting into WFB, and I'm looking at either TK or VC as my army because... you know... undead things are neat.

Either way I look forward to reading the reports.

Bill said...

Hey would it be possible to at some point add a blog entry with all the rules for our ME III campaign up here on the blog? It might be nice to have a copy of our rules online...though I'm not sure how/if that will be infringing on GW's stuff...

Old Coast said...

yeah to save any potential drama on infringing on the IP, ( as the ME rules are basically all there)
I'd rather just send you the word file, I could probably lay it all out on my comcast webhosting space and link to it, so it wouldn't be as obvious, its still be publicaly posted thou, I'll have to think on it.

Bill said...

Cool, no sweat don't worry about it. I would hate to get you or the "club" into trouble.

No worries.

Josh said...

To make this a little clearer, could you append our Starting Tile to our names? Maybe capitals once we build them, I don't know.

Bill said...

you mean like
Vampire Counts (Bill Lim) - B,2 ?


Josh said...

Yah, just because we have two lizard players, two undivided players, two Bills, and an Erik and an Eric.

Old Coast said...

yep- I'll figure out an unbusy way to key the map and clarify on the next update. See you guys tonight-

Josh said...

Solid victory vs. Eric, but the Slann lived to fight another day!
