Tie Breaker

So we need to determine whether to play Bloodbowl or Boardgames next month. I think that Krycek, as the newest member should consult the relic of St. Opforius next week.

So, T what you're gonna want to do is fast for a week, Ooo better start now. And you can borrow CB's robes and vestments and cover yourself with moose grease on thursday...

Warmachine Upgrades to v2.0


So the news has just rolled out that Privateer Press will be revamping Warmachine and Hordes in 2010. There are some details already on their website. click here for the official info. So we are looking forward to Warmchine Mark 2 or version 2.0. (everythings gone 2.0 now it seems)

Sounds like they will be making the jacks better and balancing out some over powered units. Plus redoing a bunch of rules and trying to simplify I'm sure. Faction books will not be far behind, or even at the same time I bet. So because I will most likely loose the functionality of my lovable Menoth Bearer for my Zealots plus others. I know how everyone loves them. I took the liberty of creating a new character that would be a blessing to Menoth in the 2.0 version. You never know... stranger things have happened.

March Madness!

A little something to get you psyched for Bloodbowl!



p.s. I'm starting to think that Warmachine is jinxed for OP-FOR.

"What manner of man are you that can kill so easily?"

I know I can be pretty cheesy, one of the reasons I like Warmaster is because I've won almost every game I've played. Its not the only reason I like the game, but its one of the reasons. You all know the problems I have/had with Warmachine. So is it cheesy of me to say that I like that game now, after coming so close to winning a game? Against CB no less. I was already aware of the "bump, set, spike!" style of play, but last week was the first time it clicked and paid off. Obliterator, Rust grenade, Shredder!

Have [the blog] your way!


Have it your way, Part 2. A fully customizable WordPress solution is just around the corner! I offer to host the site as part of my current hosting package I have set up for Nullhorizon.com. Here are the details. I have a hosting package that let's me link two domains to my server space, but I've only ever made use of one. I've been considering downgrading my account, but using it for Op-For seems the best solution we've considered. I'll take care of the hosting, and everyone interested could be contributors. In return, I'd like to set up a donation button on the blog and a corresponding Op-For warchest. I would aim to raise about $25/year to cover half of my hosting plan costs, and any amount generated above that would go to prizes and other worthy causes to be voted by committee. I would let us all know when we reached the $25 goal.
What do you think?

If you go for it, the next big question is, WHAT IS OUR DOMAIN TO BE?
You know the situation. Op-For, Opfor, OPFOR, OP4, OpFor etc ad infinitum. CR is in possession of the domain op4.net (or .org? .com?). I think if we go with that we need to change our name to match. So far on the blog we've been going with Op-For (or is that OP-FOR?). I know CR and maybe others are invested one way or another (CR has the op-for in his email, etc.) Our yahoo group (anyone remember that?) is opfor (http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/opfor/). The op4 domain was grabbed up because it was the only one of any of the permutations of letters that was still available. So if we don't want to be op4, we'll have to add something to whatever we choose (it can't just be op-for, opfor, etc.). Personally I like camel-case (OpFor), cause hyphens are yesterday.

But I'm drawing a blank for a great domain name, so I'm polling you all. Sound off and let me know, is the above solution a good one? And if so, what should our domain be, and how, once and for all, do you spell Op-For?
