General Discussion / New 30k Box Set from GW!
« on: October 14, 2016, 02:38:38 PM »
Lo and behold, GW wishes us all to get into 30k even more.  Just like their Betrayal at Calth box set, which pitted the forces of the Word Bearers against that of the Ultramarines, GW is putting out a new box set.  Or at the very least, I believe it's a new one.

Burning of Prospero.  The forces of Thousands Sons vs Allied Imperium Forces.  Not only are we getting some nice Thousand Sons miniatures,primarily in the MKIII armor, we are also getting Ahriman's Horus Heresy era model.  And to that I say, wow, he looks gorgeous!  It's a great blend of his Chaos Marine model and 30k aesthetics.

However that is not all! On the opposing force, we do get the Space Wolves all in MKIII Armor, I believe, but we also are getting models of Sisters of Silence AND Adeptus Custodes.  Yes, we are finally getting legitimate Custodes models!

Discussion: Conversions / Infinity as...40k?
« on: June 07, 2016, 09:07:49 PM »
So looking at the Infinity models and I'm wondering...do they fit to "scale" to the GW 40k line?  I'm mostly asking because, as it stands...the Inquisition line of miniatures are all crap.  They look like crap, they're the same sculpt for the last....how many ever years, and there is no variety in looks or aesthetics.  They seem to be suffering from SoB, in that I don't think their models have had a true update. 

Looking at Corvus Belli's Infinity, a LOT of their models looking stunning.  Simply amazing, and their prices are....so so.  Still I really like some of their models, and would really love to use them as sort of stand in.  Obviously placing them on GW approved bases and what not. 

I mean...come on, look at this

Would make a sick stand in for the Vindicare at the least.

There is quite a few other models that look like they might make good looking Inquisitors, or Crusaders.  Hell even some Death Cult Assassins in there.  Not to mention the fact that it seems like quite a few of the Inquisition forces go on rotation of being out of stock (or perhaps they're just not making them anymore...I don't know, every time I look someone no longer in stock then back and someone else is.)  So...does anyone have any Infinity models, and are they close enough to scale?

General Discussion / What's the deal with Land Raiders?
« on: June 07, 2016, 09:00:31 PM »
Okay...truly weird question here.  So a Land Raider is conceivably the only way to transport Terminators, cause they are so big and bulky.  Yet you can only fit a max of 5 of them in a standard Land Raider.  This is due to them counting as "two models" because of their Bulky special rule.  So...why is that you can then only fit 10 "normal" sized marines in a Land Raider, the SAME EXACT DAMN NUMBER AS IN A RHINO!?!  This has actually given me sooo much damn head scratching.  The logic and math just doesn't compute together.  Basically it feels like a case of "1+1=...Fish?"

Discussion: Chaos Space Marines / Iron Warriors Titan...warlord
« on: May 14, 2016, 09:33:13 AM »
So I have a Knight Titan I'm painting up currently, all in Iron Warriors colors.  It's going to have the Rapid Fire Battlecannon,Thunderstrike Gauntlet, and the Missile Pod that just does the blast templates instead of the AP3. As a base I'm doing it up in like a snow field like base.

Here is the question though.  I want to put a detachable HQ on the base using magnets.  So I can have the Knight Titan (named Mortis) as part of a attache to my Ruin Knights (my personal Chaos Warband), or as a more Iron Warrior themed chaos army.  The question here is...should it be Lord in Terminator Armor, or normal armor with Combi-Melta and Power sword (since that's the one I already have built)?


So, for greater understanding...if it's part of the Ruin Knights the Lord will be magnetized to the base of the Titan to look like he's commanding it into combat.  If it's a part of the Iron Warriors warband, the HQ will be on the field and a blank base with snow on it will fill the hole.

General Discussion / How many updates!?!
« on: April 11, 2016, 07:15:17 PM »
So...how many updates will every codex get?  How many more supplements?  How many new and enticing models will the get?

BEFORE WE GET OUR GOD DAMN CSM UPDATE!?!

This is getting just plain silly and stupid.  No one needs it more (save for Sisters of Battle) than the Chaos Marine codex.  It came out well before I even got into the damn hobby, and it still has had basically no updates.  I mean it's so old that we have units that actually don't have an actual set for them (Chosen).  You can argue all you want about the fact that it's all about the kitbashing or what not....but honestly, why do we have to?  I thought the whole bloody point of 7th was to eliminate anything they didn't have a damn kit for.

The rules are dated, the points cost is abysmal, the selection for gear is tripe now, the psychic powers are....very hit or miss, and they aren't hella scary powerful.  Hell, the Turkey was actually nerfed (NERFED).  This might be just a CSM player ---ing cause...well the codex is kind of petrified crap now, but...seriously a new god damn Space Marine supplement?  (Which now has the actual rules in a GW book for Contemptors, instead of buying a FW overpriced book.)  And new "Space Marine only" psychic powers? How overpowered or cheap are these things going to be?

GW, give us our damn Dex (and please don't let it be like Dark Eldar).

40K Rules Questions / Stats for the Genestealer Cult?
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:34:41 PM »
So I bought a box of the Death Watch Overkill box, and was wondering...what would the stats on these buggers be?  I'd assume the 3rd/4th Generation Genestealer Hybrids would be comparable to a cultist.  They have roughly the same loadout and feel.  But what about the rest?

I honestly have no good idea.

Discussion: Painting / How to Paint White?
« on: March 02, 2016, 08:10:38 PM »
So doing some Wraith work for an Eldar army and I've hit a snag.  As per usual when painting something white...it turns out to show my brush strokes, or looks chalky.  HOW THE HELL DO YOU PAINT THIS FRAGGING COLOR?  I'm trying to get that nice smooth white, they show on the box or other things, and I really have no clue at all.  Any help would be massively appreciated.

Discussion: Chaos Space Marines / Slaanesh Lord or Slaanesh Sorceror?
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:24:52 PM »
So I really want a Slaanesh HQ choice with a Jump Pack.  The thing is...I'm not sure if I should do either a Lord or Sorceror?  Not sure which one is better...nor what wargear to take other than the Jump Pack.

Ideas?

Discussion: Conversions / Word Bearers
« on: December 07, 2015, 12:54:28 AM »
So...as there is no actual figure for a Diabolist, I've decided to cobble one together.  While no green stuff should be necessary, should being a key word, I will be hopefully cobbling this together from several different parts.  The one picture we have in the Istvaan collections looks pretty neat so I'm going as close as possible to it.

So first and foremost, the legs.  http://www.hoardobits.com/40k/da/DA-VETS-BODY.jpg Going to be one of the standing ones, so I don't have to do any extra modeling to make it look like MKIV armor.  Saves me a little bit.  The only issue is that I'll have to lop off that back plate, since I'm going to put one of the Forge World MKIV Word Bearer's Chest pieces on.

The head will be one of the Raptors/Warp Talons heads that have the MKIV grill but have the helmet pulled back into the horns.  And left shoulder pad will also be a Raptor/Warp Talon, along with a Lightning claw.  The right will actually be one of the Grey Knight's.  The backpack will be a standard CSM backpack.

The only issue I have is what to have for the other arm.  Any ideas?

Also doing a Cataphractii Praetor with a power mace, gonna use the Deathwing Knight's Command.  Should be pretty cool.

Discussion: Warhammer 30,000 / Nathaniel Garro
« on: November 27, 2015, 10:49:26 AM »
So...was looking at my e-mails this morning and noticed one from Forge World.  Nathaniel Garro, Hand of the Sigilite, First Knight Errant, the dude from Flight of the Eisenstein, has his own miniature.  It's gorgeous, like all the other FW characters series models.  What's even more amazing is his rules.

HE. IS. A. BEAST.

Seriously go check this guy out on their site. Link below.

Warhammer 40,000: Wanted / One god forsaken PIECE!
« on: October 07, 2015, 06:07:20 PM »
I am honestly looking for just one solitary god damn piece.  Just a bit...and that is the Grey Knights Nemesis Dreadknight...sword.  Just the damn sword, and the attached hand.  That's it...seriously....just need it.  I'm willing to pay for the god damn piece, but there just isn't enough of them out there.  The odd part...I see most people aren't even running with it.  So where are they all going!?!

So if anyone can help a poor bugger out...I would be very much apreciative.

Community: Gaming Events / GenCon 2015
« on: June 24, 2015, 07:34:29 PM »
So GenCon is coming up at the end of July beginning of August in Indianapolis.  I have already bought my badge, and I am wondering if anyone else was planning on going.  If so....would anyone like to meet up and do something, hang out, chat, or just introduce each other?

Discussion: Conversions / Ideas on Power Spears?
« on: March 26, 2015, 09:25:26 AM »
So I was thinking of my Chapter Master's Honor Guard.  I would really like to have them all wielding a Power Spear (Lance in rules).  I know these aren't the greatest weapons...but it's just the look.  However, other than Grey Knight Halbreds...I can't find away to make a cool and spiffy looking power spear.

Any ideas for these?

Discussion: Painting / Chaos Inquisitor's Finished Projects
« on: January 30, 2015, 12:41:50 PM »
Khorne Prince.  I was tired of only Slaaneshi things having multiple arms.  Why shouldn't Khornites have multiple arms to carry multiple weapons?  So I added an arm in, then used Arkhan the Black's mount's head for my prince's head.  The little stuff on the base come from the Morghast.




The last one does show the green-stuff I had to use for attaching the arm.  I have yet to go back over that and blend it in.
