    What is list being? Maybe perhaps I give advice?
    Spoiler:

    I already submitted it for the practice tourney so not much I can do about it now, but free advice is free advice. I'm still missing a model for the Spore, which sucks, as I have nothing even close to it that makes a good proxy. Today the Biovore was acting as stand in. Blurgh.

    How did the Dreadnought inflict any wounds on the Trygon if the Trygon killed it in one round? Chaos doesn't have any special character Dreadnoughts and the Trygon has higher initiative. Unless it charged through cover that is.

    Didn't charge through cover, I was told it had the same initiative due to...something. Really, no special character dreadnoughts for chaos? It also had I believe 3 attacks, whereas I was the one who charged, so maybe I'm missing something else. I really don't know Chaos that well, or at least not as well as I should considering how often I've played them.


    My bad, I thought Trygons were base Initiative 5. But yes, no special character Dreadnoughts for chaos. Three attacks is legit, they have three attacks base as long as they have at least one DCCW. Chaos Dreadnoughts are actually relatively good for their cost, although the Crazed rules do hurt them a bit. At least GW have clarified how Fire Frenzy is supposed to work and limited the threat they pose to their own side.

    Is solid list, maybe best advice is being to reduce Swarmlord to Hive Tyrant or trade for cheaper HQ. Also, perhaps maybe changing Toxin Sacs for more bodies, is better value I am thinking.

    I just finished putting together and painting the Hive Tyrant only to realize I want to field a Swarmlord, so I'll need to buy one as well. Should have thought to magnetize it but...here we are...

    I have a metal HT. Couldn't be arsed magnetizing it. If I get the new plastic kit I'll magnetize it though, so I can field a Swarmlord if I want.

    Going to be interesting to see if I can manage to magnetize the tail/wings for a Flyrant too.

    How the hell do I take a decent picture of a miniature? My cell phone camera is laughable and I'm not sure if my regular camera has a macro mode?

    I am dumb at camera.

    You need macro mode.

    This should help: "The macro mode is usually on the menu button that also has an icon of two triangles that represents mountains (landscape mode) and sometimes MF (manual focus). You may have to press the button several times until the flower icon appears, either on the small top plate LCD or larger viewing LCD. Some cameras then automatically shift into a specific zone on the zoom lens so you may hear a whir as the zoom resets. "

    So search for the flower icon.

    Lighting helps, too. I have a pretty ghetto setup, but it works pretty effectively. I place the model on a white, plastic table top and light it with a desk lamp. The table top is there because its a neutral colour. Its also shiny, which helps bounce the light (without the need for a light box).

    The thing with taking photos of minis is that most people hold the camera way too close, and then the camera can't focus at things that lose and ends up focusing on the background. I hold my iPhone about a foot away.

    Definitely possible. The torso 'mount' that connects the torso to the legs connects to the legs via a simple ball joint. So basing both sets of lets and sticking a magnet at the bottom of the socket, the torso should slot right in with a pretty secure join. The wings slot right into the top arm slot, so it might be a bit fiddly getting the magnet position correct, but it should just be like sticking a different set of arms in the top arm joints.

    So Matrias's purge inspired me to clean house a bit. I've got $400 worth of old textbooks to send off to Amazon. I sent off $120 worth of old 40k models to Blue Table Painting for a trade-in. Next time I'm at my parents' place, I'm going to dig out my ~25k of Epic Space Marines and send those off too.

    Less is more!

    I went to my LGS yesterday to maybe get in a quick game.

    That kid who plays only draigowing? He was playing fucking ultramarines with calgar.

    I was like "dammit, what happened!". I almost felt bad because he took such a normal list. I didn't play him though, he was being killed by some guy with a bunch of death company.

    I have a quick rules question:

    This weekend I played in a local tournament and I brought along my looted Dreadknight and I ran it as a Mega Dread. Our organizers let FW stuff in the tournies and everyone loves my conversion (which I'll post later tonight).

    So The Mega Dread is equipped with a killkannon and some big shootas. Since the killkannon is ordinance if I fire that it can't fire any other weapons, correct? And it scatters 3d6 as well?

    Gonna say the Mega Dread is an awesome model but for me it performed just awfully. And it really isn't about performance to me; I mainly convert and I hardly ever play but it was just awful. Since I went against small armies (marines and non-horde orks) my scatters went absolutely nowhere. I also couldn't get it into CC so, yeah.

    I went 1-2 but I won best sportsman and a $20 gift certificate!

    Unless the mega dread has a special rule that states otherwise, it can't fire any other weapons if it fires and ordnance shot. Is the 3d6 scatter a special rule for the Mega Dread? Standard rules are 2d6-shooter's BS.

    Nope no special rules for the killkannon; must have gotten editions mixed up. Still really wouldn't have mattered though. When I needed to roll low I rolled high. When I needed to roll high I rolled low.

    I fucking hate models with one arm that holds the gun, and the second arm that has to connect to the weapon and the shoulder socket.

    Scatter is 2d6 minus your BS. I think the megadread is BS2, so your scatter would be 2d6-2. That is way more accurate than 3d6 :P

    So, I don't play WFB as often as 40k nor do I put as much money into it, but I was just given about 24 Khorne Chaos Knights. I know maybe three or four people in my area who play Fantasy, and none of them play Northmen. What are they like in comparison to Vampire Counts, cuz' that's what I normally play.

    EDIT: Should probably add I play Von Carstein.
