Rambles: Broken units, are there really any?

Ok, so, this time I am going to talk about broken units or rather how their can't be any, here we go.

The thing that makes a unit broken or game braking is the fact that it can defeat or help your army defeat the enemy more easily, too easily it seems sometimes, but, once you have seen a broken unit a few times then is it still broken to you?

For example, if I fight nob bikers with all of the cheese on them every week for 5 weeks 0nce a week, I will guarantee I will know how to kill it easily by the 5th weak. Another example that I can relate to is doom/guide/fortune farseers on foot. One of them was a with big unit of dire avengers, he fortuned them to keep them alive then guided/doomed my units to death. I don't think that this is a broken unit but I take it as a challenge. The way I dealt with it was to tie the unit up in combat with a tar pit then do waht I wanted before piling in and killing the unit, you may say that was a waste of units but you have to remember I am saving my self points that they would have killed aswell as using my points against theirs.

The point is that if I hear that nob bikers are brilliant and want to play them but then don't want to be an ass then I can't play them. Now, if people took nob bikers in my army as a challenge for them to try and beat it lets me use what I want and it keeps thing fresh as people have to find new challenges.

So next time you see someone contemplating taking a supposedly broken unit then tell them that you will play them and take it as a challenge!

If anybody has any other questions or comments or anything to add onto tis post then please comment away!

Fun tips: Kislev, not an origonal idea? It's Jewish!

Sorry for not posting for a while but I have been busey, I am getting some blue colours, I have got my games day mini and tickets, I have started undercoated my warshrine, started paint my BSB, I have built my disk sorc/lord and I am writing a story about the Imperial Guard army I will be getting, it will be called the Valjeron 617th. Anyway, on with the real bit of info!

I know that GW steals ideas from all sorts of places but I found out where the Empire town Kislev comes from: It's the 3rd letter in the Jewish alphabet, if anybody has any ideas why it is jewish then tell me.

Thanks for reading.

RPG: An Idea I have had for a new one.

OK, so I have had an idea for a new RPG, based on necromunda, some of you (hopefully) would be a gang and I would b game master, every now and again I would post a scenario up here, assigning specific roles to each person, then, you must write what equipment you take out of the armoury for that mission and say how you use them in a comment here, I will assign skills to people as they progress. To decide what you actually do, you wite a short story say 4 paragraphs long (longer if you want) following the guide lines I set out in the mission briefing. I will assign some one as leader of the gang and they will write their story first and, as gang leader will do a little overview in their story checking up on the other gang members to give them a guide line, they can make a fire fight hapen or whatevr in whaich case the other stories will have to corespond, I will number each gang member and that will be the order that you write your stories. This is to enhure that all of the stories fit together.

So if you want to join or are interested then say and post your profile, like so:

Name: Warren
description: angry, hotshot, black coat etc
weapons/equipment: heavy bolter, las pistol, dagger, hellfire rounds.
gang position: heavy
weight: 12 stone 5

Add any other info you like to that list, in the gang there are: 2 heavies,1 gang leader, 4 gangers, 2 juves, postions supplied on a first come first serve basis, the above person does not count it was just an example. For your weapons chose from the list bellow, as we gain more items they will be added to the scenrio armoury but this is the starter armoury:

bolter (1)
heavy stubbers(1)
heavy bolters(1)
throwing knives(6)
long knives(3)
las pistols(6)
auto pistols (4)
grenade packs(6, we like these)
If you want any other weapons tell me ant I'll consider, some weapons I will say no to because we will pick them up. You assign your own equipment and i will do an over view of each person.

So tell me waht you think and if your interested.
