Atia's weekly progress report #2
Howdy Guys and Girls :)
Another busy week without huge progress, but well, I said I'll post a little progress report every week, in good and in bad times xD
Let's start with the Black Library side of the hobby :)
I finished Horus Heresy: Blades of the Traitor, and I really like the short stories in it, mostly 'cause both Mortarion and Maloghurst are part of it. I won't spoil that much yet in case you haven't read it, but I like it that Mal is described with his armour! 10 points Guy Haley!
Now the bad thing ... Cybernetica didn't arrive >.> seems like I need to read something different this weekend :
X-Wing Wave VIII - StarWars Rebels in space!
We got some cool X-Wing previews today! thanks @ Manchu from DakkaDakka :)
Wave VIII ships are:
Gozanti-class cruiser w/2x TIE Fighters
looks like the rebels are here!
Age of sigmar night : Report 1
Good morning sigmar !!
Yesterday was Age of sigmar night.
2 (small) games were played
-Stormcast eternal vs khorne warband on a kill everything mission with 800pt on each side.
-Skaven vs high elves, ritual mission, skaven 600pt , high elves 700. (skaven player was the ritualist)
Things we learned:
-Play objective based mission, last man standing in a close game take a long time to finish.
-AOS is a game of combo. Basically a game is you : trying to buff your unit while trying to counter the enemy combo . It's quite fun !
-The game seems super balanced. Not to brag or anything but, we used our homemade point system and gw warscrolls, the 2 games we played tonight felt more balanced than most of the 40k games we made these last 2 years.
-Rules are a lot deeper than first thought. with the number of warscrolls+ special rules the possibility seems incredible .
Ok, i stop here and present you very fast the 2 games played yesterday.

Whether fighting on foot or from the back of a Scimitar Jetbike, the warriors of the White Scars Legion are deadly opponents. Fighting with a primal wrath honed and focussed by years of intense training, the sons of the Great Khan accept no equal, striking at the enemies of Mankind with a speed and ferocity few can match.

Look like a fun game !
Dwarf !! Again
Continuing in our grand plan to calculate points cost for all warscrolls, we did an update for the dwarfs :
-fixed text paragraph on mobile device ;)
-tweaked the formula for bugman beers
-reduced the impact of slow movement on dwarf.
-Remade specials rules database to include a "easy to hard to use factor" and "number of use" data row.
So, now the program take in account if a power is :
-easy to use
-moderate to use
-hard to use
-impossible to use
ex: a bonus on the charge round is easier to use if you move 12" per turn than if you move 4".
If a power is :
-half the time
Still need to add the Keywords to each warscrolls !
