August 3-4. Looking for a couple games.

Post  squalie on Wed Jul 10, 2013 4:04 pm

My wife and I are spending the weekend in the toon. What that means is I can probably squeeze a game in sat and Sunday. Possibly more if I give her a credit card.

Anyone?

Unfortunately I can't, I'll be in Waskesiu that weekend. But maybe you and Dom can get your playoff game done!

That's actually what I told my wife. If Dom can play first thing Sat, that would be perfect.

Summer, great time for gaming. I will be away that weekend as well. I might be able to get a game in earlier that week, but that's about it till after that long weekend.

I think during the day is best. I think supper and a movie is planned for the evening.

I DO know that it sounds like a few others from Regina and Moose Jaw may migrate for the day, so we should maybe try to get a head count.

If needs be I can be there at ten thirty, I will bring what I need for my daughter to be distracted so I can try to play a couple of games. Please remember boys, what she touches she is not gentle. Also, please let me know if anyone would be bothered if I use proxy for some Trolls as I need a hammer. Giant and Big Spider are not getting it done.

Proxies are a slippery slope and a sensati e subject for some. Probably best not talked about here.

 There is no "general" time for proxying.  It's a very sensative subject as I personally don't (try not to) proxy.  I actually feel guilty when I do.  I wish I'd do it more often as I've spent sooo much money on certain figs, and even whole armies, just to turn around and sell them because it wasn't what I thought I wanted - only to turn around and buy them again.Rolling Eyes 

 I have very strong feelings about proxying, as opposed to themed armies.  The difference, at least to me, is that a themed army is (or should be) immediately recognizable as to what each unit is meant to convey or represent.  Two examples are Mine and Nathans Bretonnians.  My army hasn't a single bretonnian fig in it yet it's obvious as to what each unit is (I hope so anyways).  Nathans awesome army (in theme and effort) is an army that you understand immediately what each unit is and cetainly couldn't be confused.

It's hard to give an actual definition of proxying as there are many, many factors and grey areas.  I think it's like the old saying:  

"I can't tell you exactly what pornography is but I know it when I see it"

 Proxying comes from the simple fact that you won't or can't buy a model(s) for your army and I can't stands that.  I know it sounds elitist, but so be it.  My frustration from it comes from the history of people trying a new unit (which I'm cool with) but then NEVER getting the actual models for the unit.  It's a slippery slope and I think it devalues the hobby.  It ceratinly devalues the money and effort put into the hobby by some.  How is it fair for Nathan, for example, to put a shit ton of effort into his Brett army and across from him is a Skaven army with bits just glued on bases to represent a unit.  That Skaven unit was put together because the owner couldn't afford 200+ clan rats.

 How is that Nathan's problem?  (I do not speak for Nathan - just an example using his cool Brett army)  If you don't have the models - get the f****** models or keep using the army list you have.  THAT"S PART OF THE HOBBY!!  The desire to "get more" to play "different cool units".  That's the phenomonon of ending up with 5000 points.

 My constant arguement against proxying is this:  I'd love to race Ferrarri's - but I can't afford it.  So I don't race Ferrarri's.  I certainly don't show up in a Ford expecting to hang with the Ferrarri boys - for very long anyways.Very Happy   Listen, I really don't mean for this to sound condescending, and it's just one man's opinion.  I just love the hobby enough to feel that it "taints" it by not honouring the hobby and those that created it. I know - Don drank the Cool-Aid.

 Again, my distaste for proxys comes from the people that proxy are always the same people that proxy and they don't stop proxying.  Hm, I guess I've just realized that it's not necessarily the proxying I don't like (I don't like it) but that it's easily and often abused.
