    I've decided I'm going to assemble some long fangs and then toss everything in my bits box. Gone. My hobby closet is disgusting and the reminder of wasted money is pissing me off.

  • DraevenDraeven Registered User regular
    You can always, just ebay them or bartertown your stuff for cash, i mean sure you wont make all your money back but you will get something for them. No need to go that far matrias.

    Well, realistically, those painted guys are wasted money too. This whole hobby is wasting money.

    I should point out, it was outdoor Space Hulk, by fire/lamplight with a cookout and beers.

    OHhhh, ok so yoiu just have a bunch of "wasted" stuff, maybe you should mail it off to Ein and see what he can do with these "wasted" bits, though it seems law school has him by the balls so to speak for free time.

    for example: ruined land raider that was massacred in a magnetizing accident. half a rhino (I don't know), sternguard (before I figured out Space Wolves couldn't take them), chaos marauders (for their stylish beardy heads -_-). There's a pack of Legion of the Damned that I was planning on doing something Salamandery too .

    going through this pile some of this stuff is not even mine - a pile of sprues I brought home to assemble when I was working at R. Comforting that I didn't my own spend money on all of it, but now I need to return them.

    Broken tanks should be made into scenery, if you are a scenery-making man.

    I've got tons of unused shit from a lifetime of wargaming. I'm too much of a hoarder to throw any of it out though.

    Are those Sternguard metal or Finecast(r)(tm)? I can totally help you get rid of those.

    Why can't you use the Sternguard? Throw some wolfy decorations on them and use them as Grey Hunters.

    accurate assessment. New wraiths are rad looking.

    @saluksic @Loki, the sternguard are metal which is why I never did anything with them. I'm going to keep them (probably)

    Well. Today was fun @ Kingdom-Con. We had a Kitbashing event (We get a couple baggies of bits from the Warstore, get a short while to slap something together. Then the coolest looking one is voted on. Every contestant has three voting tokens. etc etc). Tied for first with a guy who made a really awesome marine riding atop some sort of robot horse. We split the prize (Warstore gift certificate).

    Mine was pretty awesome. I'll take a pic of it later. I call him Masta Dakka. He's an Ork wearing a looted suit of Terminator armor with an ungodly amount of Dakka stuck onto him, including, in no particular order: A Lascannon, 2 Assault Cannons, 2 pairs of 3 Hurricane Bolters, wielding a combi-flamer slugga with a Force Falchion bayonet in one hand, a Heavy Bolter with the same kind of bayonet on the other hand, and... a bear trap hanging off his side. I gave him a little support brace so he doesn't tip back. Was VERY close to being able to balance, too.

    Oh right, Masta Dakka has an Imperial Guard sgt riding atop of him, kneeling down, holding a power sword up in the air, DRIVE ME CLOSER style.

    Finished cleaning my hobby closet. found the rest of that razorback. Now those stern guard I don't want can drive the rhino I don't need. Now to do the same thing with my comic book horde.

    Dunno why I got the urge to clean all of a sudden. got struck with the urge to bring my models home from work last month and got laid off two weeks later, so maybe I'm anticipating a move or something.

    Just go with it dude. Sell stuff, donate stuff, whatever. I get those vibes/urges to just clean house when it comes to some stuff (DVD's, games, etc.) And 90% of the time I don't miss whatever I get rid of. I do have a ton of anxiety until I hit that critical mass, knowing I have a closet full of shit that I should probably go through, so the other 10% of the time is worth the risk personally.

    Godspeed.

    On the opposite side of the coin: years ago I decided I was done with the Warhammer shit entirely and did a massive purge. I mean massive.

    Old rulebooks (2nd & 3rd edition), old Codexes (mostly from 2nd ed), old fantasy army books, and just tons of minis. A lot of it was from Warhammer Quest too, which I still have the box for but is now unplayable.

    A lot of regret there.

    In other news, if anyone here still hasn't started BattleScribe or been compelled to figure it out from scratch, I put together a guide to help one of our nooblet friends.

    Well, they've kept going "nuh-uh" at my credit card. Their loss.

    Rules question! Assault 2 Blast, you aim both shots at the same spot, roll scatter individually, right?

    Looks good! You may want to select the "Root Points" option under Layout Options, so that it doesn't break the rules with itemized point costs :)

    as an aside, I built long fangs. Some how I managed to accumulate 5 missile launchers in my bitz box without ever buying a box of tactical marines or devestators. I, uh, think I got some of them from big R. Its all a blur.

    That said, I think that Tomb Blades might have some use besides wasting loadsa points as a handicap, but only in very narrow circumstances.

    On the other hand, it'd be worth it just so you can tell your opponent that the alleged pilot has no idea what his bike just did, or how, and is probably still asleep, if they ever do something awesome.

    I have to tell a certain player every single time I see him how bad the Tomb Blades are. He just won't believe me.

    What's bad about Tomb Blades? I must admit I haven't checked the stats since the codex came out but aren't they kinda similar to how Destroyers were in the old codex?

    Is like, maybe you are saying, "Hey, looks at this, is space marine biker!" But there is problem! Is no available to special weapons carry, is no available to combat upgrade being! Is like being expensive prostitute with no puss puss.

    Hahaha… no.
    Think marine bikers except I2, 4+ Sv and more points. But you can buy expensive upgrades that make them almost on par… their only saving grace is their gun which is, to be fair, pretty ridiculous, but still not ridiculous enough to make up for the rest.
