Re: Dreadnought loadouts

Depends really. If you want to sit back and shoot things up then Plasma Cannon or two Twin Linked Autocannons (known as Rifleman Dreadnoughts) are the way to go. If you decide to go up close and personal, stick with Multi Melta and DCCW with Heavy Flamer in a Drop Pod. Melee Dreads should never walk...

Re: Catachan Platoon Command Squad (Final pictures on Pg. 9)

Seriously, your diorama didn't make it past first round? That's just wrong, so very wrong.

Re: Competitive painting views???

I never really cared for competitive painting. Sure, the stuff that people put out for these events are marvelous and beautiful, but as with all forms of art, in the end it comes down to personal taste. Or GW's sales doctrines. I also get the impression that all these events do have kind of an eliti...

What would you buy?

Good morning everyone! I'd like your input on the following matter. I'm on a rather tight budget when it comes to 40K, so I take my time before I buy new stuff. Kinda next on my list for expanding my Dark Angels are some more Terminators. And I'm wondering which box(es) I should take. From what I re...

Re: Warhammer 2K - 40K

Well IIRC there are several not-so-subtle mentions of geographical sites in many of the Horus Heresy books, for example Fulgrim. Don't quote me on this but I think Fulgrim and Ferrus Manus had their duel in blacksmithing in a cave below the Himalayan Mountains, which are called just this. But in gen...

Re: How to highlight Dreadnoughts?

To what ratio should I thin them? 3:1 or even more?

How to highlight Dreadnoughts?

So here is my problem: I started painting my AOBR Dread, basecoated him and now I'm stuck on how to highlight it. I tried hard edge highlights with just one colour, but wasn't too thrilled by the outcome. Then I tried highlighting the edges in successive layers, but that looks even more crappy than ...

Re: What kind of sealer for your models

I spray my models with Gloss Varnish, then brush Matt Varnish over all parts I want dulled like Armour.

Re: August Painting Deathmatch! blackbook26 vs. kavika0311

I painted them up as Power Weapons, but will use most of them as CCW ingame. Only the Sarge in the middle will actually have a Power Weapon.
