Hi chaps, this is the page where you can talk to me, VeryIntelligentShadeOfTheColourBlue, although if you wish to insult me, I'd prefer it if you at least make a separate section for it.
I mostly write fluff for the Angry Marines (aka most/95% of their codex fluff) which you can find on their main page and the 8th edition codex. I'm also writing the codex angry custodes,, and will eventually create a main page and tactics page for them once I've got enough fluff together, the rest of my edits are rewriting rules for fan made models/rules and writing the odd edition here and there.
Chaledy (talk): Hi Blue! How are you? I was wondering if you would like to help on a fan-made board game I'm working on, set in the WH40k universe and based on an episode of the lore of my Blind Horror. If you want to check it out, here's the page: The Killer of the Maze. Also, do you have a Discord? So we can write a bit more "directly" to each other.
Stay well, Chaledy
VeryIntelligentShadeOfTheColourBlue (talk): What style/format are you thinking of using for this game and to what scope? And what capacity would you require my help in, lore or crunch etc? And what has made you decide to create a board game at this time?
Chaledy (talk): It's a project I had in mind for a while, and now that I've ordered the bits necessary to convert the Blind Horror I thought to finally make it so I have something nice and different to do with my friends. I was thinking of a style similar to lost patrol and space hulk, with one player controlling the imperials while the other the Blind Horror. The objective would be to retrieve the lost beacon or to kill all the imperials and I was thinking of using the "fear mechanic" of the biomorph to create a strategy game where positioning is key as a bad move could mean to get stuck into a corner and get annihilated. I would just need some help/suggestions with the rules and maybe on the descriptions too. Of course if you don't want to, you are free to decline, but since we've already cooperated with two pages I thought I would ask you for this one as well.
VeryIntelligentShadeOfTheColourBlue (talk): Sure, I’ll help, but I’m not familiar with the rules for lost patrol or space hulk, I’ve just never had the chance to play them, I will have to research the rules. By the sounds of it you want to create something along the lines of an “alien” board game, one overpowered foe who can be defeated with skill, strategy and combined firepower (or just by staying hidden/away), but if one of your party members gets separated then they’re buggered.
Like in alien you could add ducts (represented by different game levels) where you can trap the blind horror in different sections, but it causes terror/leadership debuffs to units that hear it slither above/below them. This is all just far ahead thinking, the games primary loop first needs establishing and the core game rules/mechanics. And I do have discord, it’s SocialHummingbird#9860.
