Friends, seekers of knowledge, questioners of mysteries, I speak to you now.

You have shouted into the void: And the void hears all.

Let's encourage our state officials to do this so we can have more than a dismal turnout at the polls.

I play Retribution. I like using some of the Dawnguard units. In base to base that ARM 17 is nice. With a spell here or there, it can get kicked up to 19.

One of my friends plays Khador.

Unit of Widowmakers, the solo marksman widowmaker, the merc who gets two shots off a round when he aims, and Eiryss. Almost a full unit of troops that are like, "LOL bro. Do you even armor?"

So what's a good way of handling such long range threats when you go first and he places the enemies in spots where your slow moving tin cans are going to get popped? Take it on the chin? Try to get some type of AOE's in the area as widowmakers die in a stiff breeze? Something else?

Unfortunately ARM skew is not particularly useful on single box models for this very reason. In almost every instance it is better to buff single wound models DEF instead of ARM, but Ret doesn't actually have many DEF buffs.

It's this reason that I'm not a fan of Sentinels at all. I'd suggest go with Halberdiers or Infiltrators instead. Both are fast enough to close the gap before taking major casualties, halbs lose Stealth for Reach so it comes down to personal preference.

For all the flak GW gets, these painting tutorials are solid. They aren't going to be any Golden Demon's or anything, but considering the number of silver and gray hordes I play against, I'd love to see other companies have their own painting channels with all of their goods done up on them.

An article being compiled by +Mike Bourke included some advice I had on running games. I figured I'd throw out an actual example of what i was talking about in filing non-gaming material away for later use.

An analysis of network television news coverage reveals what supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders have long suspected, the three broadcast television networks are intentionally ignoring the Sanders campaign.

I kinda drew a different conclusion:
Sanders messege might be controversially socialist to some extent, but it is nothing compared to the Overton-window-demolishing, bull in the republican China shop rampaging, blatant beast spectacle that is Trump.

Where Sanders turns the compassion for humanity up to full volume, Trump turns up the blustering thoughtless knob til it breaks clean off, then picks up another bullhorn from the stack to repeat.

Catastrophes get more airtime than telethons, and Trump seems pretty intent on explaining how deftly he'll grind the ship of state onto the rocks.

Story
Tagline
Long time role player of various games that started with the old FASERIP from Marvel Super Heroes to more modern games like the dreaded 4the dition Dungeons and Dragons.
Introduction

I've lived in Chicago most of my life. I've been a man whose slowly but surely coming to realize that going out to eat is killing me with the massive amount of sodium fast food places put in everything. I'm relatively normal in that I work, enjoy the old social media and have a few nerd hobbies like reading about historical warfare and painting miniatures and playing role playing games. I'm old enough to remember when a phone was something attached to the wall and grew up with a very real fear of getting nuked by Russia.

This apartment complex suffers a bit from having tenents who stay up all night. For example, at Midnight on a Sunday, they are out being loud on the back porch. Trying to get any resolution from ASAP and you may find yourself doing as others have and moving out.
