    Wanted to get in on this thread early what with my impending return to the hobby. Gotta literally dust off the armies. SJ. Next week? Any form of gaming happening?

    The bone 'ead has a valkarie h-bolter under his arm, doesnt show up in the pics.

    Those are some awesome Ogryns.

    Those Ogryns kind of make me want to boot up STALKER. The gas mask on the right one just says "snork" to me. Love it.

  • mr_michmr_mich Registered User regular
    Loving the Ogryn idea. Although the one on the left in the first picture needs some neck-work done; looks too much like you just glued a gasmask head onto an Ogre.

    he's a little wonky because his head is leaning way to one side so he can aim. I'll clean up the bulge on that side.
    They've all got pretty long necks, just because of the different mountings from ork to ogre. The backs of the helmets also have a chunk missing where it would cover the neck, which is weird.

    Not sure what colour to do their skin. Topless dudes in my fancy gold army is pretty barbaric, but I'm not good enough with greystuff to sculpt full uniforms on them.
    Maybe elephant grey.

    Paint the bare arms a shiny black and put Under Armor logos on. No more barbaric skin showing.

    Man, I love the Space Marine flyer concept art (or whatever it is) BOW had up.

    Hey warhams.

    I'm looking for some help. :P

    I want to buy dice from gamestation.net/ (in particular the GameScience Dice). But the postage to Europe is like $40 which feels a bit much. Would someone in the US be willing to order the dice, and then send them on to me in order to save me some shipping (and possibly tolls and taxes)? Please send me a PM if you are up for this. :wink:

    I loved the big clenched teeth underneath the nose.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose Registered User regular
    I think it's the answer to the question "how would a Techmarine* build an Apache gunship?" and I think it's amazing.

    *Techmarines have to account for pesky little things like not necessarily having an atmosphere to use so they like to go overboard with the engines.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    But then I do find it rather interesting that some of the concept art sucks compared to the production model

    That's not concept art, that's someone's drawing of the leak they saw. So take it with a grain of salt.

    It kinda looks like the gunships off Battlefiels 2142.

    So after over a year of doing very little with my 'nids, I finally got around to heading into the GW in the city with 1000 points and a friend of mine with his Space Wolves. We were going to face each other, but ended up teaming up against a guy with 2000 points of orks. I should've grabbed my camera and taken photos, since I love doing battle reports, but alas I didn't think of that. Next time.

    Some highlights were: my friend's single lone wolf rolling straight sixes to immobilize a battle wagon with a death roller that was about to ram my Tervigon, my first squad of genestealers infiltrating and wiping out an entire squad of biker boyz without any losses in one round of combat, my two squads of warriors killing a single nob between them all (I love warriors but I swear I must field them wrong because they either smash faces or do TERRIBLE), and my two broodlords killing about 15 nobs and 20 boyz in total, and survived all the way to the last round before they finally fell to a power klaw or two. Oh and the lucky missile shot early on that immobilized a deff dred first turn meaning it did literally nothing all game.

    Oh man, Z was one of those games that I played the shit out of as a kid but I've never heard anyone talk about before.

    That game was awesome.

    I used to love doing that to my friends tanks in 3rd edition. I'd nail them with a couple of shots and immobilize them, then try to destroy weapons that are still pointed towards the battle. Did it to my friends Land Raiders a few times. Every turn, he'd sit there, longingly looking at that 250pt lump that can't more or see anyone with its remaining guns. I didn't care about the VPs, just the look on his face every turn, when he tried to see if a gun had an extreme angle shot on something.

    Yeah I was trying to do something similar with my hive guards, but I kept rolling double 2s over and over with them -_-

    I love things like landspeeders and stuff, so that Storm Talon could be really cool.

    Unless the Ork one(s) are both awesome looking and useful, fliers are officially a failure.

  • MatriasMatrias Registered User regular
    Of course, when I say "could be really cool" I really mean "could look really cool painted with the rest of my models."

    Oh I know. I don't judge coolness based on performance. That's the awesomeness scale. :bz

    So apparently the second half of the new Grey Knights novel is just Logan Grimnar fucking around with the with Grey Knights and the Inquisition. Like, actively fighting with them to defend innocent civilians.

    If I didn't have to spend the weekend doing design tests, I would be reading this right now.
