I was wondering one thing. Would you guys be interested if Games Workshop decided to make a F2P MMO, a digital adaptation of tabletop W40k if it worked [I]exactly[/I] like tabletop, including you having to buy units for real money (a lot cheaper though, most likely)? I know most (all) of you would prefer not to have to buy units but if it was the case, would you play such a game?
Then it wouldn't be F2P, would it?
[QUOTE=gufu;34101654]Then it wouldn't be F2P, would it?[/QUOTE] There's a game called "Battleforge" that works in a similar way. It's F2P, meaning you don't have to buy the game itself but every player only gets a couple of units and if he wants more, he has to buy them for real money.

[QUOTE=nightlord;34094367]Several of them have, some of them without even realising it.[/QUOTE] had :retcon:
Recently tried playing DOW2 again as I played it a little then left it alone. I'm interested in getting Retribution so I can play as the Imperial Guard, but it's still a full priced £30 and part of me tells me I should wait for it to get cheaper. Is it worth picking up? also, hearing one of my Spess Mahreens shout ALIEN BEANS during a firefight made me crack up. I know that's not what he said but I can't unhear it.

In Strategy games, you rarely feel attachment to your soldiers, as they aren't really unique.
[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;34102684]Part of the fun of Warhammer 40k is the sheer amount of customization you have. In Strategy games, you rarely feel attachment to your soldiers, as they aren't really unique.[/QUOTE] If you pay 5$ for every soldier and you can customize them like in DoW for example then you're bound to have some attachment with them. I would play the hell out of that game. It would be cheaper, I wouldn't have to paint my models, I wouldn't have to carry them around since they're digital, I would be able to play it sitting on my ass.
But then you couldn't make cool models from bitz, have to pay for something that you can't show off (or hide when you invite someone home), and you can't use soda cans for drop pods.

[QUOTE=Devil Traitor;34101328]How do Orks produce? Are all Orks are woman with manly voice?[/QUOTE] Orks are a plant-like species. When they get killed, they release spores into the atmosphere and from theese spores, new Orks grow. This is why it is so hard getting rid of them.
I played retribution online for the first time and holy hell is it confusing
[QUOTE=27X;34102499]had :retcon:[/QUOTE] Very little in 40K is ever truly retconned. There is no definate canon, you believe what you want unless it's outright stated to be wrong. Has something said that the Orks accidently worshiping Chaos never happened, or just not mentioned it again? If it's the latter, then it's technically still canon.
[QUOTE=3v3ryb0dy;34108992]I played retribution online for the first time and holy hell is it confusing[/QUOTE] You seem to probably be as lost as I am, maybe we should play together 1v1s and 2v2s to get used with the game, mind if I add you to steam?
[QUOTE=Bonde;34108673]Orks are a plant-like species. When they get killed, they release spores into the atmosphere and from theese spores, new Orks grow. This is why it is so hard getting rid of them.[/QUOTE] They get released into the ground.

The fluff is pretty open for interpretation so you can basically come up with everything you want.
Do you guys happen to know any good tutorials on magnetizing Imperial Guard heavy weapon teams? I can't find any good way to be able to do it but I was the ability to switch out between games.
[QUOTE=Mooman;34113017]Do you guys happen to know any good tutorials on magnetizing Imperial Guard heavy weapon teams? I can't find any good way to be able to do it but I was the ability to switch out between games.[/QUOTE] Why not just make/buy some extra bases and set the weapons up on them instead?

Glue the tripod and mag the top of it. The 3 weapons sit on that and I just use blu tack for the guy onto the base, does the job. I tried to do the handles but it's not worth it.

And I'd get extra bases but I don't have enough spare people to do that.
[QUOTE=Mooman;34115134] And I'd get extra bases but I don't have enough spare people to do that.[/QUOTE] Get one guy per base, just have him lugging around some of the parts needed to operate the gun.
Can anyone tell me what the name of song is that plays in the final mission of DOW2 Retribution? [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um-ZTYgzPas&feature=related[/media] If there are separate tracks then its the one that I think starts at 0:50. I really can't find it anywhere.
Friend drew me this, so I posted it on /tg/. You guys get second-helpings. [img]http://i.imgur.com/EBQBx.jpg[/img]

Been playing through Space Marine. It's pretty good, but I really think they inserted the Chaos forces a bit too late.
[QUOTE=myalt22;34119058]Been playing through Space Marine. It's pretty good, but I really think they inserted the Chaos forces a bit too late.[/QUOTE] I thought the campaign had great pacing. Just as I started to get tired of fighting tons of Orks, bam, Chaos arrives and puts the gameplay on a different level. My only disappointment was the end boss fight. (fucking quicktime events)
[QUOTE=myalt22;34119058]Been playing through Space Marine. It's pretty good, but I really think they inserted the Chaos forces a bit too late.[/QUOTE] I liked how late they inserted them. My only problem is how short the game is.
[QUOTE=myalt22;34119058]Been playing through Space Marine. It's pretty good, but I really think they inserted the Chaos forces a bit too late.[/QUOTE] I wouldn't say that, their coming started midway through the 2nd Act, just before the final confrontation. My only complaint was that the Campaign felt a bit too short. Also, no Squiggoths.
