Heading to an actual for realsies Tournament in June (ew competitive play). Not terribly excited about competitive format in general as I know Wolves are basically tied for the bottom of the barrel along with Grey Knights so far this edition and I largely refuse to run a “soup” army. All that said, I dont expect to show well win wise, BUT my army is going to look dope as fuuuuuuck.
First 3 of the 5 Characters for the list. Gotta get that “Company of Heroes” thing goin.
Wolf Guard Battle Leader, Jump Pack and Black Death
Rune Priest on Jump Pack with Rune Axe
Wolf Priest on Jump Pack with… er… decapitated Daemonette?
Grey Hunter Pack1
Grey Hunter Pack2
Grey Hunter Pack3
Wolf Scouts & Wolf Guard Scout Packleader
Wolf Lord, Totally not Harald
Wolf Guard Battle Leader & Wolf Guard Murdercycle Squads. All dat wolfdakka!
Eliminator Squad 1
Eliminator Squad 2
Inquisitor Munin (Grefax Countsas)
Who wants to play Dino Riders?
So, yeah. After a year and a half of playing Ark on official servers. Scorched, Island and a very little bit of Ragnarok. I’ve got a dedicated server set up, hopefully I can populate it with victims… er friends and we can punch some dinos. I promise not to set fire to everything you love. Mostly. The goal here is to play with people, and mess with people and still actually play Ark, so none of the rates are going to be set to ridiculously high.
Trying to find a balance where you have to grind a sensible amount, while not having everything be completely throwaway. So if someone does murder everything you care about, it’s not prohibitively grindey to tame it back up and go get revenge. That said… people probably don’t need to be foundation wiping each other. That’s not a rule mind you, just. Try not to be too much of a dick I guess? PvP is fine, otherwise it wouldn’t be on, and if you’re going to be a troll or try to be “alpha” at least be good at it and do it with some style. 😀
There will be people/persons with the Admin password, that said, I have no interest in force spawning/taming things. If someone acts like a muppet and I need to log in as admin… well, it may very well turn into purge night.
How to find the server
Change the server list/dropdown to PC Unofficial (or whatever it is)
Search for “Gorilla Soup”
So, quick rules and highlights.
- No Transfers.
- Dont make me smite you.
- Tribes limited to 5 members & no Alliances. Improvise, adapt, overcome.
- 2x XP – 4x Tame – 3x breeding all the way through – Boosted gather, I forget to what but it’s better while not being stupidly excessive. People on the server have ground up to lvl 60 ish over the course of 2 or so days of playing. I feel like that’s a reasonable rate.
- Cave Flyers are allowed.
- Cave damage mod is reduced. Im not saying how much, but it’s lower.
- Crate drops are improved (in theory).
- Turret Damage is boosted until the Stego glitch/meta gets sorted by Wildcard. Hasn’t been tested yet so if its out of whack post in Discord.
- Platform Saddle & Raft slots are doubled. I like rafts. Will be researching how to keep Leeds from spawning because there will never be enough crap in the ocean to need them to play cleanup.
- Server difficulty should be set to the same as Official, however for some reason wild dinos don’t seem to be spawning at the full level range. Trying to sort that out.
Well… two things anyhow. Both are test minis for their respective forces, the Wolf for a 30k force and the Lion for my 40k army that needs to be done sometime in may/june, getting that sorted should be interesting, but the more I paint the faster I’m getting, so thats good and the Lions are pretty quick to paint overall. The Assault Squad the sgt belongs to is about 75% done as a group, I need to knuckle down over a day or two and crank through them.
Celestial Lion Veteran Sergeant
VI Legio Tactical Veteran Einar – Ironjaw Pack Designated Marksman
Warning, long ass post incoming.
Well, these boys are about sorted. I’m one model short, a VI Legio Moritat that I’m super looking forward to building probably tomorrow. I am however a jackass and messed up the shoulder plates on the Cataphracti, turns out they have two plates, so… that needs to get sorted. I have fixed one, need to do the rest over the weekend.
VI Legio Destroyer Cadre designate: “Einherjar”
VI Legio Terminators
Terminator Sgt. and a couple others.
Group shot of the Veterans
And a shot of the entire mob
Veteran Vylka Fenryka. Wanted these guys to look slightly more wolfey than the impending tactical squad will. I think I hit an ok balance. The Sgt is meant to be a Terran born Legionnaire.
Starting to work on a Pride of the Legion list for some ZM/Blood in the Void games. Going back and forth on what Legion to do, but when in doubt I’m going with what I know. Vylka Fenryka.
Praetor with Paragon Blade and Volkite. CHOOM!!
“I am the Stormcrow, Herald of Wolves. I tread the battlefields of Fenris choosing the slain, the victorious, and the worthy. The path of the aspirant is not for the weak, even Fenrisian blood may falter and chosen may fall. The Curse of the Wulfen lives within all of the Vylka Fenryka, some are broken by it, most endure it and very few master it. Our Lord Bran Redmaw is the latter.”
