    GW are still doing the odd spin-off release, such as last years Dreadfleet. Personally I prefer that type of release, where everything you need is in one box.

    There are also rumours of a re-release of an old game. Possibly Necromunda or Bloodbowl. My money would be on Necromunda (literally too).

    To continue the off-topic GW thread: did anyone play Battlefleet Gothic? I quite enjoyed that. Haven't touched my 40k or WFB stuff in over 10 years.

    I loved Necromunda but I could hardly ever get any games in, people I knew preferred Blood Bowl and Fantasy. Van Saar for the win!

    Battlefleet Gothic is quite neat, although it is never fun facing an Tau player who spams missile boats.

    Necromunda was great but relied to heavily on having excellent terrain. My Scavvy swarm (had like 50 guys, ate 1 of my guys a match) was one of the few bastions which survived a zombie plague, Scavvies with stolen Las weapons ^_^ And lots of swords.

    Tech skills topped out in usefulness when your heavy bolter already has a 2+ ammo roll.

    But stealth, shooting and agility? Delaque had it all,agiity shooting and stealth. Sprint makes you harder to shoot for gods sake, double that up with evade and hip shooting and (gunfighter for pure epic, or dive when your opponents are skilled with positioning)? He'll be dropping down on you with a cheeky hand flamer or 2 before you can get a shot to land on him.

    The panic that causes is extreme.

    Oh Great and Bountiful admins: Somanyrobots and I are having some scheduling issues due to work and timezones and flights and such. We'll probably need a short extension if that's okay (Monday is looking promising)

    1-0 and about to go for a dodge (with a reroll) to go 2-0 up when NieA7 disconnected.
    I'd like to take the administrative win rather than trying again.

    Are you sure? You look like you'd easily get 6 or 8 touchdowns there, you really look like you have him on the ropes.

    President Weasle and I just got to turn 5 of our match when my machine crashed. It was 1-0 to him and he was about to score again, could an admin set it to a 2-0 win to him?

    More generally it's becoming clear that my connection for BB is terrible. I can play Tribes with no problem at a c.20ms ping, stream 720 vids off YouTube and other online games seem fine too, but BB's all over the place. If I can't sort it out I think I'll drop out from future seasons, it must be very tedious for my opponents.

    *Edit* Thanks Helio XP

    I never played Necromunda either, although it looked interesting. I remember the rules coming out free in a White Dwarf. THe main game must have been released after my time with GW.

    I'd be keen to develop a new version of Space Hulk as a real time or turn based game (lots of ideas for it). Necromunda could be interesting too...

    You're thinking of Confrontation which was based on GW's venerable 4 phase action system they'd used for things like the Golden Heros roleplaying game. The incomplete rules for Confrontation were released over several issues in White Dwarf. Necromunda was based on the standard W40K system with extra bits.

    I've heard talk that they might be putting overwatch into the 40k rules, so if you had a rich friend you could buy the forgeworld spacehulk like terrain (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/New_Stuf...TALIS-SET.html) and just play games on that.

    Who was challenging who in this game? It might make a difference, as it appeared to do in our two recent games. Also port forwarding, torrents, streaming, yada yada?

    Also of course I wasn't there, but is 5 turns really enough to call an administrative victory? That is a ton of time left in which to fight back...

    He was down a wight, I was up a touchdown and had just got a blitz and caught the ball on the restart, had ridden the attempted sack, and was one dodge (with a reroll) away from a 2-0 lead. Making us restart at 0-0 seems like penalising me for his PC crashing.

    We tried again in the challenge league after NieA7 had turned zone alarm off - the once-every-turn 15 seconds of connection error messages went away, and the annoying 2 second lag between selecting an option and seeing it happen on screen. Then his PC blue screened, and my halfling team got their only ever challenge league win.
    We tried a third time, again with no zone alarm, and it worked perfectly. His fresh amazon team beat the crap out of my 1700 TV lizards and handed them one of their very few challenge league defeats.

    I don't know why he's getting the occasional blue screens with Blood Bowl and not other games; it's not the graphics driver.
    Could be one slightly dodgy, or slightly badly seated, stick of RAM - but you'd expect that to show up with other games too.
    Maybe try deleting the install and installing it again? Make sure you've still got the disk (or access to the download, or whatever) before deleting the install though.
    It does seem like Zonealarm might be behind the connection issues though.

    I've been getting crashes to desktop recently when i've been spinning in the public leagues. Pretty annoying.

    I noticed that all the division B matches have now been played (according to the holy spreadsheet). It would be great if the week was bumped along for us because My life is about to get hectic and so the more opportunities I have to fit in the final game the better.

    This thread is a constant font of creativity :)

    Your match is still live with 3 days to go to the deadline - play it if you can! :)
