Fortress 40K

November 5, 2012

Fortress40K is a ridiculously complicated game that requires 8+ players, has a zillion tiny pieces, takes days to play, and its rules are the size of a phone book. Of course it’s a big hit with the kids of Hilla

    Shadow Willa sure has a long… tail? And who’s the one next to her, who looks almost like an adult human?

  2. DHGM says:

    Starter Set includes one 500pt Lapakan Templars company and one 465pt Orkian savages warband, models unpainted and cards unshuffled. Terrain, paints, glue sold separately at prices so high only spice traders could hope to collect a full, entirely painted force.

    Actually that was 5th edition. 6th edition starter set comes with Holy Lapakan Templars and pagan Tarkan Icons.

    I was thinking it’s more Team Fortress 2 than it is Warhammer 40k. there’s nine people there, can you guess who plays which class?

  4. DHGM says:

    Thank you for making my clever warhammer reference completely irrelevent; I will now guess who plays which class.

    Assuming you’re not trying to invert tropes, here’s my take on the roles:
    Donovan- The Heavy
    Ash(ley)- The Pyro
    Rosaline- The Spy
    Willa- The Soldier
    Shadow Willa- The Demoman (y’know, cause he’s black)
    Xander- The Engineer
    Amme- The Scout

    As for the two unknowns:
    Unknown Left (I think she’s Madison, I’m basing this on nothing)
    Seems like a Sniper type to me.

    Unknown Right (I think she’s Maria, I’m basing this on nothing)
    She seems like a pacifist, so she’d let everybody else pick first, then get stuck with The Medic

    How’d I do?

  5. Nick Daniel says:

    Not quite, although there are parts of your’s I might like your’s more.

    Donovan- Heavy
    Ash- Demo (she likes explosions and fire)
    Rosaline- Sniper
    Willa- Soldier
    Shadow Willa- Spy (She’s a shape-shifter)
    Zander- Medic
    Amme- Scout
    Madison (who is on the left)- Pyro
    Maria- Engineer

  6. DHGM says:

    So I got Donovan, Willa, and Amme right.

    I did think Ash could be either Pyro or demo, and Shadow Willa coulda been the spy too. I tried to give them roles that best fit their personalities (Or in the case of Madison and Maria, what they looked like).

    The medic was kind of a toss up for me.

  7. Jinxed says:

    You can’t see the spy, because OBVIOUSLY (s)he’s cloaked.

  8. DHGM says:

    Oh, that must be why Maria is the Engineer. “Cybernetics”.
