Welcome to the new Bartertown.com!

Our new server is much faster, and we're very excited to hear what you think about the updates.

Server/Software Updates:
  • Operating System: - CentOS 5 to CentOS 7
  • phpBB - (forum software) 3.0.12 to 3.2.0
  • Server Hardware - We're now on an entirely new, dedicated server with twice the RAM and a Solid State Drive

Forum Changes:
  • RULES - Are now linked in the hotbar at the very top of the page, so they're easy to find. Also, you don't have any excuse for not reading them.
  • ITL Trade Ref System - Also located in the hotbar up top. If you don't see them immediately,
    check under the Quick Links menu.
  • GW products have been condensed by genre. No more vacant, empty sub-forums dedicated to specialist games - those now belong in the GW Fantasy and Futuristic categories. Read the descriptions if you aren't sure where to post.
  • Collapse-able Sections - An awesome extension of the updated board, you can now collapse the categories you don't care about to make the forum smaller.
  • Announcements - Like this one! Did you know we were going down for maintenance and we had updates scheduled? Now you'll definitely be in the loop on future things that impact the site.
All the awesomeness aside, there may be bugs or issues that crop up as we settle in. Please check/post here about issues or if you have questions.

Kings of War; anyone playing?

I dont want to be a threadomancer, but im wondering about this game, and I didnt want to start a new thread while one already exists.

Is the game good? How complicated is it?

GW just makes me sick. $100 rulebooks, $50 army books, very expensive miniatures. I like some of Mantics figures, and one rulebook is great.

Any battle reports out there?

I enjoy it. Been playing off n on for 2 years. Went to Adepticon and met some good guys who play in the Midwest. I am hoping to goto Gencon and hit up that tourney as well. With it not big on peoples radars, you can get great deals on minis/armies on here or Ebay. They are in the process of releasing more of the Kickstarter stuff so new minis are due any week now.

*Puts on his thredomancy hat*

I've been playing this for the last week. I'm thoroughly impressed with it's speed and ease of play. I wish they would be a little quicker on answering emails and sending out stuff they sale.
If we're trading: Lower ships first, even if its me.
If I'm buying: If you have a REASONABLE (>20) rating with no negatives, I'm paying first.
If I'm selling: You're paying first.
I always check Ebay before making/accepting offers. You should to. Fair market value >>>> "I feel they are worth X"

Offers good for 24hrs.

See, it's stuff like this that makes no one like you.

KoW has brought me back to the game table ( and BT )! I'm rebasing some GW models and buying Mantic. For the cost, the models are great but it's the system that won me over. 2k pt games in an hour and a half. I dare ya to try to get 3 WFB games in on a lazy Saturday afternoon. I'm hooked! I'm rebasing part of every GW army and like most of us, I have PLENTY left over!
