Re: First Game Recap plus thoughts

how did your synapse do. did any horms eat them selves? Synapse wasn't really a problem and while my opponent did try very hard to remove it as early as possible however they simply couldn't as I had my network overlapping so even if they did kill one node units usually had more that 1 source. I al...

First Game Recap plus thoughts

So I just had a interesting game which I thought I'd share. The set up was my nids against 2 guys playing as 1 team, so I had 2400 (2 x 1200 Lists) and they had 2 x 1200. Roughly my list was: Deathleaper Hive Tyrant - Wings - 2 x TLDBL 4 x 30 Hormaguants 3 Vevomthropes 2 x 2 Zonathropes 1 Hive Crone...

Colour Scheme

So with the release of the nid codex I'm finally starting to paint the nids I have hiding in my house, I'm trying a new colour pallete out and thought I'd get peoples opinions here in order to help me get a good looking for by the end of it. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/015_zp...

Re: Really hoping the New codex does not suck

Does anyone know...did genestealers get any punch back? Genestealers are exactly the same as before sate wise and point wise, you can buy a pair of talons which will give you another attack but keeping them base cost would be best. In saying that you could run them as a press army now with lictors ...

Re: Really hoping the New codex does not suck

To complement, I'd probably run them with long ranged artillery units like biovores just to keep the pressure on them as the units move up. Hopefully Hive Commander is still in so that I could flank the warriors. Biovores are even better than in the last book as spore mines are better so they got a...

Re: Really hoping the New codex does not suck

Ok, so i've spent the day reading it and I don't think it's as bad as a lot of people are making it out to be. You will have to run your army differently in this edition without a doubt however the sky certainly is not falling. One of the most common complaints I see is boneswords now being ap3 rath...

Re: Colour Scheme

The rusty red...is that red with a bunch of black wash over it? Looks good. Color scheme looks good. Only thing is the purple on the face shield seems a little out of place, not sure why. Otherwise, like the gritty feel of it. The red is actually a mix of blue and red followed up with a wash and th...

Colour Scheme

Hi Guy,s I'm starting a new Dark Eldar project and thought I'd get your opinions before I get to far into it. I know there is a painting sub section but I prefer to ask the players rather than the painters. So here's my sample, what do you think? http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/0...

Re: Manta Log

I just finished painting the top cover in the main colours so I thought I'd post a little update. So here is the top part in undercoat, undercoat highlighting and finally top coat + highlights in main colour. The first two pictures show the greenstuff work that had to happen before the undercoat bla...

Re: Manta Log

Sorry there rhothy for the slow progress , I didn't think that many people had interest in this project and my time is kind of limited so I can only work on it some of the time. Well here is a small update on where I'm currently at. http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o639/uragorilla/001_zpsb54a1842...

Re: Apoc Question

Considering that Apocalypse makes no reference to the allies matrix other than what you can take in your force, I would say it is as is from the main rule book. This is what I believe as well. I had a game the other week where a daemon player was using a Farseer to give them fortune and also using ...

Apoc Question

This is probably a very simple question but I can't find the answer currently so I thought I'd ask the community. Now in apoc you are free to field whatever units from whatever army you like and this I understand well however what I'm trying to find is are these allies all considered battle brothers...

Re: Manta Log

I think when you ink or oil wash the cracks that the color will really pop. I can't wait to see more. I litterally check back everyday for updates. Thanks for watching this project then. I do try to do as much as I can on this when I can. So today's update I taped up the Manta so I could start the ...

Re: Manta Log

Well the main colour is on the top of the hull now and I'm really happy with how it turn out. Here is a picutre of the undercoat I put on. The reason I did it this way is so that when the base colour goes on it highlights the sections painted in white a bit more than the parts in black. http://i1151...

Re: Manta Log

I was referring to making the stilts strong enough to stand up in the air on its own, and be able to reattach firmly to the base. It would make for some cool pictures, and let it fly over buildings easily. The stilts are strong enough to be able to do that, however the reason I don't do it is the b...
