#3495 Combat partol

Posted by madival on 04 April 2011 - 02:28 PM

With the speculation of the meltdown being combat patrol flattened, I still want to get some combat patrol games in. Anyone interested? It would be quick and we could get alot of games in and even games in during the week without much problem.

#10285 Game Updates

Posted by bob10182 on 06 February 2013 - 06:27 AM

DUST Tactics:


Well, my buddy and I have been playing a lot of DUST tactics lately and it has been a blast. We have posted in the Fantasy Flight Forums with some of our battle reports and we are doing a progressive campaign that has been a lot of fun. Recently there has been a lot of Soviet releases for the game and there are some really good units that have taken the field. If you're interested in trying out DUST Tactics or you want to watch a game, let us know and we can demo the game or late you know when we are playing at store in the area .If you are checking out DUST, there are plenty of new units coming out soon and a new expansion.




We tried our hand at the quick start rules and, what a load of fun. This game was just a lot of fun and we plan on increasing our gameplay. If you haven't heard of it, definitely check it out, there are free rules adn tutorials on the Infinity website. If you enjoy Warhammer 40k, its definitely worth checking out as squad level game that plays in under an hour. The models look great and there are tons of player created free army builders to mess around with.


Board Games:


Some other things on our list are; Mageknight, Panzer General and possibly Warhammer: Invasion the living card game. Mageknight is a new game that is really topping the charts with great user reviews and it has a solo, co-op and player versus player mode which can really add to the versatility of the game. Panzer General the board game is related to the video game which is a classic WWII game. It has a solo and player versus player mode. We are planning on playing Mageknight next weekend and hopefully I can put some more information on the site after we try it out.


We have taken a break from Warhammer 40k and we have been playing some different games. For those of you that are still playing 40k, feel free to post and share with the group and if you're still looking for games or if you need to schedule events, use this post.

#13284 Knoxville Mini Painting Day - May 30

Posted by Wren on 25 May 2015 - 01:35 PM

NOTE: If you are not a Knoxville resident but travel here on occasion and would be interested in sitting in on a paint day, let me know when you’re going to be in town and I’ll do my best to try and schedule a session you could attend.


You are invited to join us for the May meeting of the Knoxville Area Miniature Painters! 


Where: Level Up Games on Kingston Pike (http://levelupknox.c...es-2/knoxville/ for address and directions)


When: Saturday, May 30th, from 1pm to 6pm


Paint days are a way for miniature painters to share tips and tricks, get feedback on our painting, and have fun hanging out with others who enjoy the hobby. Painters of all levels and genres are welcome! All you need is a miniature or three to work on, and some brushes. Paints and other supplies are available for use, but you are also welcome to bring your own. I also have a small selection of brushes and figures available to allow people new to the hobby to try it out at no expense.


If you’d be interested in seeing a discussion and demonstration on a particular tool or technique, please let us know!


Interested painters are also invited to join the Knoxville Area Miniature Painters group on Facebook at: https://www.facebook...25292220862477/

Interesting Chibi style ninja models.  Not sure yet about the ruleset.  If you are into Kickstarter type things, look into it.

#12137 Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures (1.0, through Deserts of Desolation)

Posted by tbiaslorin on 14 January 2015 - 11:14 PM

I doubt there's anyone left within a 100 miles that plays, but one can hope!=)  If anyone's up for a game, let me know.  Realizing that my favorite game has essentially zero audience (I myself haven't played in over 5 years), I've started a blog dedicated to my solo pursuit of the game!  Bad play on words, but couldn't help myself! (PWM.net)


Thanks y'all!

#12115 where to play 40k?

Posted by mike_w on 22 December 2014 - 07:38 PM

Hello. Recently moved to knoxville from birmingham, al. Where is there a good casual place to play? I'm not a tournament player but I have a couple 2000pt 40k armies.

I understand that hobbytown has some good tables, but when? Thanks.

#11892 Brawler Bash VII

Posted by GhostWarrior on 02 June 2014 - 09:41 AM

Thanks for that Bob.  It was great seeing you again.


The competition this year was as stiff as it's ever been (which I can totally judge by the 2 that I've been to :P ).


Example - The points required to beat last year's winner (@ 31,714) would have put you in 8th place this year.  1st place was 33,398.


~1,000pts separated 2nd place and 8th place - meaning every point in every game really did matter!


Also, you really have to play to the event - the expected battle for 1st place on table 2 in round 5 (due to better paint scores) ended up with neither player placing in the Top 5 because one of the players disengaged and neither ended up with more than 2,500pts!  By contrast, I was on Table 5 and was able to score 4k (but missed my card objective by 2 wounds - only time I missed one).  If you want to place well at Brawler Bash - you have to fight!

#11859 Fleeing the field

Posted by FallenMP on 25 May 2014 - 10:12 AM


Look at questions 1 and 5 under movement and put them together and that's your answer.

And here is a thread on it http://community.fan...-the-end/page-2

#11789 Nashcon's Fantasy player's Pack 2014

Posted by Necronbob on 11 May 2014 - 03:33 PM

Todd, we had a couple of questions about the pack.  Thought it might be wise to get an FAQ up before the tournament:


Round 1:  One objective says that you gain points for rolling "insane courage on a leadership test."  Insane courage is a rule that applies to break tests.  Does the objective only count if rolled on a combat break test or is it for any leadership test (panic, items that make players roll leadership tests to keep things from happening, etc).


Round 2:  The objective says, "A unit within 3” of an objective with no enemy units with Fortitude within 3” of the same objective controls the objective."  I assume that this harkens back to the rule at the beginning of the rules pack stating that one needed objective to claim any objective, but it was questioned during a practice game.   You might want to add "a unit with fortitude within 3"" just in case someone doesn't read the first page.


That's everything that came up in our practice games, and I'm pretty sure that we all know the answer to the round 2 questions.   I will say that all of the objectives have made for great games so far.  I'm looking forward to the tournament!

#11780 X-wing Newb. What models should I buy?

Posted by The Kraken on 10 May 2014 - 07:08 AM

Well after the starter set you will actually want to buy the single TIE fighter. It comes with the best TIE pilot in the game and also comes with some other good cards. After that just buy what you like. Most people but interceptors as they are pretty solid ships. What you will find though is fantasy flight was pretty smart and put certain upgrade cards in certain ships. Like one of the best upgrades is Push The Limit and it used to only come in the Awing but now I believe it comes in imperial aces as well.
