    ### Start of shameless copy & paste ###

    Read all of this before you start as it will save any trouble later.

    First thing you must do is make your “pledge”. It can be anything gaming related, big or small, and you don’t even have to finish it. No, in here, happiness is the road. Have fun doing whatever it is, but it is not a race. Accompany your work with pictures or we might think you are do something sinister and just using us for cover.

    You are also presented with a few questions. It is to get the conversation started. Try and keep your answers ‘conversational’, no text speak, and certainly no “basically”. This is how we all get to know each other better. While you are here feel free to tell us a story, show a picture, joke, tales of love or woe, or just add your own little bit. This is the whole point…in here it is just us.

    If you have never taken part before we may bark and bite, but we also like a cuddle! It is all done in the best possible taste and it is character building. feel free to give as good as you get.

    A few other things to note: NO RELIGION & NO POLITICS! Glasgow pub rules are in effect. If you need to make a better point then it is fine, but don’t take the piss. And always keep it civil.

    Play plenty of music to go with your work. Loud and through proper speakers. Write us a playlist of things we might not have heard before.

    Now, after all of that there is only one ‘real’ rule in here and it cannot be broken: NO DICKS! (Exceptions may be made for little fighting men with little plastic/resin/metal wieners)

    ### End of shameless copy & paste ###

    Questions of the week:

    1. Did you get your OTT Star Wars Weekend order in time?
    2. What is you favourite model from all *released* SW:L models?
    3. What is the worst model/unit from SW:L in your opinion?

    And now off to bed… just finish this here beer.

    My answers:

    1. Just in time… I actually had to drive back to the office to pick it up. But it’s here!  https://www.instagram.com/p/B6BmaQPItVQ/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
    2. Vader… so a iconic pose and model… and it was a joy to paint.
    3. currently it’s the Dewback… but I only had it fielded once…

    Beer is nearly empty.

    Hi de Hi!
    1) Did you get your OTT Star Wars Weekend order in time?
    Nope. I think ewoks attacked the supply lines or something.
    I don’t know if anything will be delivered tomorrow (saturday), but we’ll see.

    2) What is you favourite model from all *released* SW:L models?
    I kind of like Captain Rex.

    3) What is the worst model/unit from SW:L in your opinion?
    Sabine Wren … but only because she’s not paired with the rest of the crew (seriously FFG  … WTF?).

    I do hope FFG get their supply chain sorted because it’s tough to get into a game when the release schedule is so random.
    The Star Wars setting is big enough to allow for all sorts of interesting armies and characters.

    I really see your 3). but I couldn’t think of any of the others being really be any good in game. A blind Jedi? A Jedi Noob? A cheeky robot? A big brute? (we have Chewbacca) And a pilot? 😉

    Happy Star Wars Weekend

    Pledge – Ewoks, friends together, friends forever!

    1. I didn’t make an OTT Star Wars Weekend order, because I have no interest in playing Star Wars Legion.  I would have went if FFG had an Ewok faction though and painted Ewoks for the weekend.

    2. See above

    3. See above

    So, no Star Wars for me this weekend. I guess it’s because international shipping combined with FFG’s logistics were against us.
    At least you’ve got yours @sundancer

    I  never was into star wars myself, but I did like the Clonewars cartoon series so it was the logical option for me.
    FFG really ought to make it easier and more reliable to get their stuff though.

    I did get my copy of ‘slaves of darkness’ and a few other books from a local webshop, so I’ve got things to read this weekend.
    One thing I noticed is that the ‘chosen’ units get to use the number of models associated with their god (so 8 for Khorne).
    I know that was a thing when the actual ‘slaves of darkness’ / ‘lost and damned’ books were released.
    However it does look like you can field opposing chaos gods in a single army, which is kind of weird .. but then that’s the modern AoS ruleset.

    @limburger sorry to hear that… maybe more luck next time.

    @sundancer yeah. This was just a lot of bad luck combined with a busy season.
    As such I’m not worried and I think the OTT Store has learned a few interesting things, so the only way is up 😀

    btw : next time curse in German … they can’t *beep* you when they don’t know what you’re saying 😉

    It’s hard to change languages mid sentence. I’ll give it a try though *g*

    Yeah, that’s hard. One thing I picked up from watching Farscape is that you can substitute similar words.
    I suspect that’s why Battlestar Galactica gave us ‘fragging’ (although that supposedly dates back to WW2 and fragmentation grenades).

    My favourite however is ‘flock’ (sp?)  ’cause it fits this hobby.

    It’s Flockin’ good 😀
