Gameforge 2010 4th Quarter League

“So… you think you’re better than me? Really?”

We, here at Game Forge have come up with an answer to that question above and devised a fool proof way to prove it!

So it is with great pleasure to announce that starting 1st October 2010, Game Forge will be holding its FIRST quarterly Best Game Forger League! Now, we are based in Penang and as you know, we Penang-kia always like to do things a little differently. So here are:

  1. The league is open to ALL Game Forge members. Have you joined? Have you updated your member ship? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to either, then hey… you’ve qualified to be in the league! All you need to do now is register as a League Forger. No entrance fee required.

  2. This league will be open to BOTH Warhammer Fantasy Battles AND Warhammer 40k players. We are looking for the best player and don’t care which game system you play, as long as you play.

  3. The league will be held within the period between 1st October and 31st December 2010.

  4. In keeping with the gaming and modeling spirit, scoring will be done in the form of Markers on the League board which will be prominently displayed in the shop for all to see. Markers will be colour coded to indicate their value, i.e. 1 point and 2 points.

  5. Minimum size of games are fixed at 1,000 points per army list.

  6. For every game you start, that is deploy, then complete no less than 3 full Player turns, you and your opponent will earn a 1 point Marker each.

  7. If you play with FULL army of FULLY painted models (yes, that includes basing), you will instead earn a 2 point Marker. Those who use empty bases, paper cut outs or proxy models will not be entitled to this additional point. ‘Counts-as’ and Conversions models may be considered if they are in good taste though.

  8. In the event of multi player games, the above Markers will be awarded to all participants so long as they adhere to the above rules. I.e. 1 Point for playing till no less than after everyone has finished their Turn 3. And 2 points if you are playing a fully painted army with no proxies or empty bases or paper cut outs.

  9. Once you and your opponent(s) have finished your game, just approach any Game Forge staffer and collect your Markers for you to pin your achievements on the League board!

  10. Scores will be tallied and winners will be decided at 12.01am 1st January 2010 and decision by the organizers will be final.


Other than enjoying a LOT of Warhammer-ing, we are putting up for grabs the following:

Winner with the most points: MYR150 GameForge Store Voucher
1st Runner-Up with the second most points: MYR70 GameForge Store Voucher
2nd Runner-Up with the third most points: MYR30 GameForge Store Voucher
Consolation Prizes for the players with forth and fifth most points: MYR15 GameForge Store Voucher each.

Also, bragging rights come to any and all who wish to go for it.


Quick! Get your models assembled! Paint them up! Get those games in and start raking up those points. ‘Cause if you do it right, you might actually prove to be the GameForge #1 Leaguer of 2010!

See you on the grass mat!

Secrets of Dark Heresy?

Some of you will know that I run a Dark Heresy RPG campaign at the Forge, but most of you might not know that the party I GM is a sociopathic, sword slashing, bolter shooting and psychic burning kill team (and add a few other oddballs). Most missions, even the supposedly diplomatic or intrigue-ish kind, usually end up as a battlefield strewn with mutilated bodies and wrecked vehicles.

So sometimes I wonder if one day... (sung to the tune of a song by OneRepublic)


I need another story
Something to close off this quest
My game gets kinda boring
Need something that will cause distress

'Til all their chars are stained red
From all the wounds that they've shed
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought they saw me wink, no
I've been on the brink, so

Throw in what they really fear
Something to bring them to tears
I'm sick of giving reward gear
So I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

This time
Don't need another Chaos shrine
Don't care if players ever jump in line
I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

My God
Amazing that they got this far
It's like they're flitting through the stars
Just to collect nasty long red scars

And everyday I drop the clues, all the problems that they should solve
And when a situation rises, just take bolter and promethium
Slaughter all they know
I don't really like the flow, no, so

Throw in what they really fear
Something to bring them to tears
I'm sick of giving reward gear
So I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

This time
Don't need another Chaos shrine
Don't care if players ever jump in line
I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

Oh, got no reason, got no shame
Got no kidney they can maim
Just will make them disappear
I'mma let loose everything

Throw in what they really fear
Something to bring them to tears
I'm sick of giving reward gear
So I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

This time
Don't need another Chaos shrine
Don't care if players ever jump in line
I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

Throw in what they really fear
Something to bring them to tears
I'm sick of giving reward gear
So I'm gonna slay all their PCs today

This time
Don't need another Chaos shrine
Don't care if players ever jump in line
I'm gonna slay all their PCs today!

Dragon Princes of Caledor

Look at those models. Nasty. The details, the awesomeness of these models will strike fear into your opponents. Just the thought of these spears could pierce through two of your models or your single character pierced twice by these princes are not very inviting. Not to forget, their speed and high accuracy, your character probably won't have a chance to hit back at all.

Well, these models are coming soon. And they're coming to GameForge. So, save some empty slots for your High Elf army for these babies. I'm sure you know you want them in your army.

Here's another look at these princes.

1000 points - Skaven (Alvin) vs Warriors of Chaos (Eugene (the other one, not KKK)). Victory to Skaven again!

There was also a mini tournament! Organized by only 3 players among themselves; Peng, Alvin and Kang. Each one of them have to play against each other, the winner wins a Snickers bar! The results for their games:

1000 points - Beastmen (Peng) vs Warriors of Chaos (Kang). Victory to Beastmen
1000 points - Beastmen (Peng) vs Skaven (Alvin). Victory to Beastmen
1000 points - Skaven (Alvin) vs Warriors of Chaos (Kang). Victory to Skaven.

As commented by Peng on his win, mostly it's due to his magic buffing up his units that won the game. Imagine fighting against T5 beastmen! They're die hard!

There you have it! A weekend full of battles! 8th edition in full swing! Moods getting high, new tactics displayed, magic blasting away foes and friendly, war machines blasting away units, brutal close combats and what's most important, a whole lot of fun!

It's Time for 40k...

Here's something for the guys playing 40k, sung to the tune of a recent World Cup favourite...

***** DAKKA DAKKA! *****

You're a good soldier;
Choosing your battles
Pick your dice up
And do your roll off
And back on the table

You're on the front line;
Everyone's watching
You know it's serious
We're on turn fiver
This isn't over

The pressure is on; You feel it
But you'll wipe them all; Plasma it
When you roll, gets hot, Oh oh...
And then you roll, gets hot, Oh oh...

Psykana Eldar Loota Tau'va
Cuz this is 40k
Psykana Eldar eh eh
Dakka Dakka eh eh
Psykana Eldar Loota Tau'va
It's time for 40k

Read up the rulebook;
This is our motto

Don't come to whine
It's assault nine
A Spiritus Ordo

People are praising;
Your nice conversions

Show how you paint them
It's like your Gargant
With decorations

You saved all day; Just rolled it
It's two plus hey; Believe it
Then you get one, fed up Oh oh...
And you get one, fed up eh eh...

Psykana Eldar Loota Tau'va
It's time for 40k

Tactica aa
Psykana Eldar eh eh
Dakka Dakka eh eh
Psykana Eldar Loota Tau'va
It's time for 40k

First 8th Edition for KC's Empire and Don's Ogre Kingdom

30th July 2010

Don and I decided to our first 8th edition of warhammer. Fielding 2250 points worth of army on each side and playing full set of rules for terrain and scenario. I built my army based on my usual style of play, mixing knights, infantry, shooting and warmachines in my army but this time, I could field 2 lord class characters! With 562 points, I could field my Archlector and a Grand Templar. My archlector, I would use my standard set that I've used during 7th edition but for the Grand Templar, I tried for the new Sword of Bloodshed. That would make my Grand Templar have 7 attacks! Take that you nasty ogres!

Ogre's facing the Empire units

We rolled off for the type of battle scenario and we got Dawn Attack. We checked the rules and found out that the battle field would require D6 + 4 terrains. We rolled again and the total terrain was eight! Each terrain was also generated using 2D6 and a variety of terrain was generated. We take turns placing the terrain and I believe it would make an interesting battle as we would need to maneuver our troops.

Archlector on War Altar and Empire Knights led by Grand Templar

Deployment was unique and the first time I've playing in such random deployment. First we rolled against each other to see who determines the player that deploys first. The player that deploys, have to deploy his whole army before the next player. We rolled and Don won the dice roll. He opts for me to deploy first and as we read on, for each of my unit, I have to roll a D6. On a roll of 1, that unit is to be deployed on my left flank, on a roll of 2, my right flank, roll of 3 - 5, to be deployed in the centre and on a roll of a 6, I get to choose the location. After all my units were deployed, I felt that my forces were spread pretty badly with my general in far right with my "hammer" unit and my Battle Standard Bearer in the left flank. My large unit of swordmen was the only unit in the middle along with its two detachments.

Spearmen detachment

After Don has completed deployment, it's time to roll to see who gets the first turn. As Dawn Attack rules, the second player that deploys can only go first (if he chooses so) on a roll of 6. So Don rolled and failed to get a 6. That means I get to move first! The basic movement is still the same as how we have played in the 7th edition and it poses no difficulty. I moved the necessary units as how I would wanted and well next would be.... magic!

It's a whole new gameplay in terms of magic for me. First off, I roll 2D6 for the number of power dice and then next would be choosing the spell and the target. Now, I could measure at anytime to make sure if I need to cast a spell at a normal casting value or to buff up the spell ( some buffs increases the range). Anyway, casting a spell using a lot of dice was fun, without worrying about double 1s. The only worry is if you cast with Irresistible Force and then suffer the consequences yourself. I think you could easily get off 1 or two spells quite easily in this new style of play. In this battle versus Don, I managed to cast The Enfeebling Foe from Lore of Shadows on Don's ogres causing a whole unit of ogres to lose D3 strength. And it's a Remains In Play spell! Ouch! The ogres with great weapons are hitting me at strength 3! This spell basically won me a big battle of 3 units.Ogres facing Empire charges from both sides

Close combat! Charging requires some luck now as you need to roll dice for the distance but in this battle, it didn't do too much difference. We managed to get into close combat as we wanted and some of the battle elements needs some getting used to. First of all, one thing we keep forgetting is taking Fear tests. Now, units have to do it every turn and failing that, your Weapon Skill is reduced to 1 (one!). Combat is more bloodier now as two ranks can fight and with spears, 3 ranks! A new aspect of close combat is at the end of the close combat, you calculate your Combat Resolutions (CR) and then the side that loses the CR have to take break tests. If your unit have more ranks than your opponent, you now have Steadfast meaning your unit is Stubborn! As seen in the picture above, my "hammer" unit and another knight unit is sandwiching Don's ogres but they will not break due to Steadfast! That battle lasted for three turns in which when I finally clears off his ranks that he finally loses the steadfast and fails the break test.

Shooting is pretty much the same as 7th edition with the exception on war machines! Now my cannon's hit far more easier (but I still roll 1s to wound :< ) and with effective hits from the Helstrom Rocket battery, Don suffered quite a bit before any combat has started taking place. My cannon didn't do much as pretty soon most of the units were in close combat but one thing for sure, if there were any big monsters around, they would easily get shot very very early in the game.

In summary, the game versus Don was a huge truckload of fun and a good new experience for both of us. We both agree that now magic now has a big impact on game results and steadfast with a BSB nearby could almost make a unit unbreakable. Added with the new elements of terrain and new deployment style, it is not only whose army list would be stronger but you have to play your army right or you would still be at a disadvantage. Though Empire had won the day, but I believe the winner would be on the experience that both of us had gained. The 8th edition as I would say, it a lot of fun!
