Just to clarify my Number 1 pick. It's American Reaper.

I actually consider American Reaper and The Reaper Files to be the same strip.

Cheers

As an aside, where was American Reaper in that original first post on this thread? Am I just being blind?

Yes you are right. I also noticed the list started at number 2). I guess that explains why. I totally forgot about. Might have to revise my list.

I too thought it was missing but saw The Reaper Files. One Google search later and this seems to be a recognized title for the (in)complete series.

I really wish this strip had been given another series. It was a new and interesting premise by Pat Mills and an eye-pleasing treat courtesy of Clint Langley.

Cheers

How do you spell 'nob' anyway?


In regards to describing certain individuals I've always used 'Knob' and variations thereof. I think the the 'K' adds more weight to the word/insult and 'nob' might be misconstrued as Nobility, which in themselves could also be Knobs.

Doom Eternal. Loved the last one but struggling slightly to get into this one, although I've only done the first mission so far. Maybe I shouldn't have gone straight for Ultra-Violence this time?

Stunning game and Ultra-Violence is the lowest setting I'll play on. Currently stuck on Chapter 9 where things have gone mental and even with the full arsenal of weaponry and a host of upgrades I've acquired I'm left as a puddle on the floor. It's a hard game and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Pros: Beautiful graphics, fast and fluid gameplay, It's Doom.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Cheers

Did you turn 42 today?

I did indeed! Well done, sir. I'm now on the fast track towards CodgerVille.

Did somebody mention biscuits? I'll have a couple of Ginger nuts to go with me cuppa.

Megazine / Meg 417 - Smash and Crab
« on: 15 February, 2020, 11:00:11 AM »
Before we talk strips I'll mention the Obituary to the late, great, Ellie de Ville. Unsung star of many a strip who is missed by many!

Lovely cover by Karl Richardson.

Dredd - Plunder, Part 3. Final part of this and as much as I enjoyed the tale I was hoping to see more from the sunken (Again?) city. Stunning artwork!

Devlin Waugh - A Very Large Splash, Part 3. Devlin is the star of the Meg this month with an episode that is hilarious and horrific in equal measure. An outraged talking Cock, Face eating and playing with matches - Sounds like fun!

Blunt III - Part 3. Blunt continues to brighten up the Meg with its tasty artwork and incredible Alien-Creature designs. Still not sure how this will end but it's an entertaining read none the less.

Zombie Army - Last Rites, Part 2. Lots of bullets and exploding heads followed by a bit of chat in a shed. As I've said before I have never played the games this is based on but that may actually be for the better as I've no pre-conceived notions of what is or could be going on. All waffle aside, I like this strip.

Lawless - Boom Town, Part 3. A day in the life of Badrock and tensions mount as Monsters are discussed and a riderless bike drifts in to town. Glorious stuff!

other text pieces include an Interrogation with Martin Simmonds and a new book , Battle Stations by Hugo Pratt and Donnie Avenell.

Top Meg!

Cheers

Issue 4 comes with a Battle mat, a pot of Nihilakh Oxide and 4 GlaiveWraith Stalkers.

The Stalkers are really nice models and instead of them all being generic Goons, two of them have a bit of backstory. One a dead Warlord the other a dead Outlaw; Both cursed to forever serve Nagash, or something.

Elsewhere in the booklet we have the Sacrosanct Chambers which is a fancy word for Wizard. The NecroQuake, where Nagash and some Skaven have a bit of trouble which ends up affecting everyone. Some other text pieces and the usual build notes/painting guides and rules on movement in the game.

Issue 6 (advertised on back) has some of the best looking Undead designs I've ever seen. The level of detail, especially on the Thorny one, really is incredible.

Cheers

Does it contain new text, or is it repurposed from elsewhere?


I cannot find any citations within so my best guess would be that the text pieces are taken from the respective Codex of each faction. I don't follow the actual Lore too deeply as I tend to use the models for different games.


I've no use for those silly crossbows...


Me too! I don't like the design and haven't the inclination to either customize or write them into a campaign. They will be passed on, post haste!

As well as the three unwanted Castigators you also get a Gryph-Hound, which I will be keeping. Who activated that statue that is now chasing me around the Map? Bastards!

You also get the Booklet with a bit of text regarding the Heroic Hosts which are basically the historical equivalent of WH40K Space Marine Chapters. Also features Hammers of Sigmar and a guide on using ranged support in battle. You also get a pot of Gold paint.

Cheers

Growing up listening to punk, goth and then metal this was definitely a guilty pleasure.

Crystal Waters - Gypsy Woman

To this day though I love those keyboard chords.

It's one of the best Pop songs of all time. Second only to This!

Issue 2 is twice the price of the first issue with around half of the contents.

You get 4 Myrmourn Banshees which are larger than Chainrasps and have an ethereal quality to them. Great looking models which will fit nicely into a Heroquest Campaign I'm creating. As I've said before the actual tabletop Battle stuff doesn't interest me.

The booklet contains the usual build notes plus small features on the Banshees, Nagash - God of Death and some other stuff.

You also get a pot of Corax White and a paint brush.

Cheers

I wasn't going to bother with this collection as I'm only really interested in the Undead models but I can offload most of the Humans to another collector, so here we go...

Part one comes with a ridiculous amount of goodies for £2.99.

3 Sequitors, which have very detailed bases. These will be painted as Golems and not Golums as I misspelt on another thread... my precious.

10 Chainrasps which are sort of a cross between a Skeleton and a Ghoul. Stunning models with a lot of detail but I may try a different colour scheme for some of them. A couple of Fire Wraiths are just what the Doctor Dungeon-Master ordered!

There's also a booklet with a bit of Lore and instructions on building the models. A ruler and game mat with six dice and a poster.

Cheers

I thought the first episode was pretty good. Episode 2 is even better!
