I guess every good gaming group has one, the guy responsible for making the terrain. In my group that job is mine. I've built a lot of terrain for our personal use. The old terrain, broken and hand me downs have made it to our local gaming store the Dueling Ground. So in desperate need of a terrain upgrade, I made that my project for the weekend. I busted out a bunch of new hills and painted to match the green table felt. Here are some snap shots from the project.
I was reading more early 6th edition rumors, trying to get my head around the new "to hit chart" was tricky... I let you read it so you can get the idea:
To Hit chart:
it is the same chart as the wound chart, but with seven columns from 0 till 6
(evasion value in brackets, abbreviates for small chart)
stationary vehicles, MC, bikes (1)
stationary infantry, jet pack infantry, jump infantry, beasts // moving vehicles, monstrous creatures (2)
short distance // moving infantry, jet pack infantry (3)
moving bikes, jump infantry, beasts // swarms // flat out vehicles (4)
flat out bikes (5)
flyers, beacons (some narrative missions use beacons) (6)
every column is: …. 6+ 6+ 6+ 5+ 4+ 3+ 2+ 2+ 2+ …. but is shifted up or down
I give you the BS value for every column that hits on 3+: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7
So I just went ahead and made the chart... now we can all hit the panic button... lol.

The follow rumors are from Warseer via Blood of Kittens Forum... (Not Blood of Kittens directly) However Blood of Kittens quote relating to these rumors is... "I can tell you that some of your source information is correct, what is and what is not I cannot go into right now sadly, but definitely have some good leads that is for sure! Keep it up!"

I'm actually really looking forward to what the Sisters of Battle Codex. I am strongly considering building an army. But that largely will depend on the models and rules. I have always liked the fluff behind the army, it's just when you sat down with army builder and tried to work out a fun and effective list, it was either extremely boring (repeated unit types) or extremely expensive (damn metal models).
1. So for me army HAS to be in plastic... if the basic battle sisters are metal still or even the new fine cast, I'm done.
2. There has to be SOMETHING different about Sisters, that something is/was "faith points and acts of faith"... before the rules were difficult to remember (is this one that you roll above model count or below). So cleaning that up will be an improvement.
Which brings me back to my title of the post... if you haven't checked out Blood of Kittens yet you really should. The guy was darn near spot on for the Grey Knight Codex.
