Re: mixing paints

I take a plastic coffee stir stick (essentially just a thin straw) and stick one end into the paint. Then I stick my finger over the other end (making a primitive eyedropper of sorts) and lift the paint out. I usually just eyeball my mixtures, but if you wanted to get ser i ous, you could either go ...

Re: Dreadnaught CCW

It says somewhere in the rul book (i think) that Dread's CCW are treated as powerfists? does that mean i attack last, my strengh doubles up also? Yes. Page 73 of the Rulebook. would this apply to a librarian's CCW too? You mean the Blood Angel's Librarian Dreadnought thingy? I can't say for sure, s...

Re: new VC update!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing the new book. The models are great, and I'm going to have to get my hands on some of them ASAP, but I might not be too keen to play VC if they turn out to be too similar to my Lizardmen. I can already see how it might play out - epic magic user (Slann/Vampire Lord) in a...

I won my copy of Battle Missions in a Youtube contest. That was pretty sweet.

Re: Your Lizardmen Army List

I take a Slann in a unit of 20 Temple Guard. Then two units of 30 Saurus, two units of 10 Skink Skirmishers, two Salamanders, and a Stegadon. That adds up to 2000 points once I play with wargear and such.

Re: 3 Tau Battlesuit Weapons?

Someone didn't read the codex. Specifically, page 25 of the Codex, under the heading "Twin-Linked battlesuit weapons systems". It says right there you can't have three of the same weapon. For example, say you equip a Battlesuit with a Flamer. That's fine; it takes up one equipment slot. Then you ca...

I'll jump in on the single Space Marine match. Some of my Raven Guard need paint.

I never finished my Predator from last month. Any takers on a Predator Challenge?

Re: Salamanders Question

I would base with Charadon Granite - it's an "off-black" that will result in a more natural look. A wash of Badab Black will make it look quite dark, and then you can highlight with mixes of Charadon Granite and various greys. Don't forget that their geneseed also makes their eyes red as well. Basin...

Re: December side-challenges!

Imma have to pull out of the Predator challenge, unfortunately. It's surprisingly hard to find a good time to prime models in Canadian winters. I could always do it next month, though (again, provided I can find the time & place to start priming).

Re: How do you deal with horde armies?

Same as above. Take plenty of template weapons and orks become a lot less scary. I really like Land Speeders equipped with Missile Launchers.

Re: To Gloss Or Not To Gloss, That Is The Question :)

Depending on the model, I use a few different varnishes. I normally use a Satin varnish on my Lizardmen to give them a bit of a reptilian sheen, but pretty much everything else gets satin coat. However, I do use gloss varnish when I paint vehicles. After a basecoat, I gloss it up so that I can apply...
