So folks a quick update my Mother died at the end of may and deep dee depression set in. I haven’t assembled any of the twenty boxes of miniatures, painting anything or played many games. I’ve solo some of the new 9th Ed 40k but ran into a slump with all the die rolls. Now I love rolling dice but doing games solo roll to hit, roll to wound roll to save. Enough of that! Enter the dice from Mantic Stat Saga.
Misses, hits, good hits and terrific hits on the red dice. Miss block, good block and terrific blocks on blue. Simple and beautiful at the same time. I’ve cheated in 40K using the weapon Str for the amount of dice rolled to hit and the Armor Save but in reverse on a d6 for save. I.e. a space marine has a save of 2. Well 2-6=4 so you can roll 4 blue die. A str 4 weapon rolls 4 red dice. If you hit on the red die, you roll the blue dice and compare the symbols. Watch anyones video on YouTube on how to play Star Saga to get the idea. I’ve used this dice system for Kill Team, Fallout Wasteland Warfare, Elder Scrolls, etc. These dice cut down on all the B.S. if you’re playing solo, which I have been. I’m going to see how it works when my oldest Son Commander Space Chicken shows up. Until then remember folks they’re your miniatures play with them how you want!
