This looks promising! Colour me interested.

I don't think I personally have issues with any of those dates as of yet.

Looking at Dark Sphere's calendar (if that's what we have in mind)...
- 18th Jan is a Magic Prerelease weekend; those tend to be very busy, but they're normally at their Waterloo store.
- 25th Jan has apparently got an Apocalypse event on at the Megastore. That might however still leave space.

They haven't yet got February up on their calendar, so I can't check that yet.

In either case, if you've got those in mind, I'd check early, as there may not be that much space available.

So date wise Saturday the 18th/25th Jan or 1st Feb are looking good for me. Otherwise I think it would need to be the end of February.

I'd be willing to try it, but it would be my first encounter with the updated rules.
So far, I've found that most people adapt to IRE quickly. Some things take a bit of time to master (when to save and use reactions, although there are some minor changes to the WIP V0.4 that should help address that*), but the basics aren't that unfamiliar.

*In V0.4, all characters are granted one free Reserved reaction per game; while I like how storing reactions leads to a dynamic where characters can be either slow and careful, or throw caution to the wind, the intention is to shift the balance a bit towards the latter. Some players do end up cautiously storing a lot of reactions when it's not entirely necessary, but letting them have that one free reaction to fall back on should help keep things moving.
The other thing is that this lets me remove the rule about characters getting one free reaction before their first turn, which was in there but was such an incredibly specific fix for a very niche (but nonetheless important) problem that I wasn't happy with it; IRE as a revision has mostly tried to remove edge and corner cases, and has built many of its new rules by generalising previously more specific rules.


Actually, I'm honestly staggered how fast most people get a grasp on the new close combat system.

(That said, I'll admit that even I'm still sometimes thrown by IRE's "Price is Right" rolling, and often have to remind myself that a 02 isn't an excellent pass but a very marginal one... but while it is a bit counter-intuitive, it is massively faster to know that a pass on a 45 is a pass by 45, so it's stuck as a design decision).

Hello all,

I would like to get some dice out at some point, having been super busy with real life in 2019.  Sometime in the new year aside from February 15th and 16th would be possible for me.  My travel plans will always require time, distance and thought so wherever is fine with me!

PS - feel like last time there weren’t enough overtly heretical characters involved. I will rectify that with my warband choice.

Well, personally, I'd love to get to use IRE more, but the opinion of the main author isn't exactly a ringing endorsement.

It is somewhat optional, of course; I endeavoured to keep IRE character sheets (mostly) back-compatible with 1st edition, in order that characters could be used in either without problems.

What are peoples thoughts on using the revised edition rules? Or should we just stick with the standard rules?

I've also started work on the new version of Isabella, having seen that Raging Heroes have rereleased their 54mm Asharah.

As you can see the consequences of nearly opening that warp portal have been rather profound:




I'll use the same head as last time and the thornlike sword that comes with the model (not having another large chainsword to use). But I'm not sure what to use for her left hand. I could use the book again, but she doesn't really need it now as the knowledge has been decanted into her head or I could use the shield, although it doesn't look very 40kish? Alternatively I could see if there's anything useful in my bitsbox.

So we're saying that Samantha is going to be entering a target rich environment?
