Shit just got REAL

At first I was like NOOOOOOO!  Then I was all like OOOOKKKKKK, now im all like OMGSQEUEUEUU!

This is massive, huge, colossal!  Pitched just in time to compete against a potential 40k rth ed release, we have titanic 'jakcs, no doubt closely followed by titanic and monsterous hordes equivalents.

Looking at the card preview for the Merc Colossal, (INORITE! Mercs get some love!), it seems that we have multiple weapon systems, multiple discrete damage boxes, and no doubt a whole host of special rules.

An educated guess would say pathfinder on the lot of them, ways to generate focus internally, either via souls or reactors, massive trample and the ability to throw battle engines like they were bonejacks.  The cryx Kraken has massive tentacles, ending in vicious blades, hinting at stupid movement and reach, the cygnar one looks like your baseline ranged beatstick, the retribution bring yet another bland boring 'jack to the table, and Menoth bring a towering collosus of HOLY FIRE!


New forums for G3, and a website in the works

We done got some bling ladies!

Mylocal gaming group, G3, has been on the go for over 10 years now, and they have entrusted me with getting our name out there so that people can come along and get on board with the fun.

I started a board on the ivision free service about 10 months ago, and whilst its been used its never been as popular as I would have liked, never quite gaining the traction it should have, with less than 50% of the membership using it.

I have started building a fully fledged site in PHP, leveraging several existing technologies, but its going to be end of february/march before that is ready for prime time.  Im kinda rusty with these sort of things :).

Moving to a paid-for host and URL should be the bump that is needed for G3, pushing us over that next hill in terms of membership. 

Our email will also be an @ g3gamers address, meaning gmail cant just arbitrarily delete our account again.

Join us on the forums here, fellow bloggers are especially invited, even if you will never get to g3 in person.

Happy Gaming!
