Re: Got bored, did the math.

You cannot collect disability while holding any job that outs you on a taxed payroll, you cannot run a store for that same reason. It is double dipping and defeats the whole purpose of welfare. You can OWN a store but you can't work there, even if you somehow keep it off the books if anyone gets sus...

Re: New Player: Aid me vs. Tau

@Falcon96 Okay so if I keep the Autarch I should run him with the Fire Dragons, that makes sense. But if I get a Farseer should I replace the Autarch completely or try and fit him in with the Fire Dragons and some lower point gear. Maybe downgrade the Pathfinders to Rangers? I have 5 Dire Avengers r...

So with a glaze I just take the base color and water it down? Or is there a different type of liquid I should add? How much water to paint do I use? You are absolutely right, though, the transition between shades is not at all subtle.

Re: Eldar: 1st Army WIP (+ a side of SM)

So I just finished painting my first ever HQ unit, the Avatar of Khaine. Maybe I shouldn't say finished since I haven't decided what to do with the loincloth (haven't picked a symbol for my army yet). As for the hair I'm not even sure if it'll end up on his head so I never painted it. I'm thinking a...

Re: New Player: Suggestions plus Army updates

I do plan on doing bases once I get back to the states. I don't have any basing material here with me. @Falcon Thank you. I have started on my Guardians and are giving them purple armor with silver helmets and bone weapons. I plan on keeping that basic theme throughout my army while still including ...

Re: little camera, big results (lots of cool pics)

I could look at pictures like this all day. Very crisp and all of the details are incredibly clear. It honestly has me thinking about buying the same camera.

Re: Dark Eldar Venom

Looking good! I like the colors a lot. I would recommend using some wash on the riders. Wash really adds a ton of punch ot models with very little effort. You could probably slap badaba black all over them or Asuerman Blue just on the armor. Depends on what effect you want.

Re: Eldar: 1st Army WIP (+ a side of SM)

This is a side group I have been painting on and off after purchasing Black Reach. Mostly finished, still need shoulder decals but don't have access to the needed supplies out here. The fiance decided she wanted in on this painting thing. We both thought the First Heretic was a great book and is wha...

Visions Because, let us be honest, everyone likes pictures. http://i1068.photobucket.com/albums/u450/Neil_Herron/IMG_2265.jpg Striking Scorpions were the first units I painted.

Re: New Player: Suggestions plus Army updates

Build Lists The Farseers' visions point to immenent conflicts with the young Tau, unyielding Space Marines, and misguided Grey Knights. Below we have listed the Autarchs' suggested deployments against each of these witless foes. 1,000 point builds are the current target. I understand I'll need to m...

New Player: Aid me vs. Tau

Hello everyone, I am new to table top games. The closest I've ever played is a few games of Risk. =p After reading many Horus Heresy novels and playing Dawn of War I & II for three years I decided to get an army with some friends who are also mostly new to the scene. Eldar looked like the most fun t...

Re: finished my first waveserpent today

The 80's are making a comback, aren't they? :P

That is a very nice scheme. I agree about the gem stones, though. Here is a very simple How To image. Just follow that idea and then put some gloss over the gems, it'll look great.

Re: Dire avenger color scheme

I'm a sucker for purple and green, myself. I like how the loincloth and hair are tied together. Oh and the white face and gloves is an interesting touch. All around I like your scheme a great deal.

Re: Eldar: 1st Army WIP

@darkmessiah Thank you, I used a few How To painting guides from around the web. @T0b30tr0n I appreciate that, certianly encourages me to break out the brushes again. @gruf lol, I pretty much destroyed the 5 Dire Avengers that I painted first. After that disaster I read and watched A LOT of How To's...
