    I am being Russian Guyovich, Soviet exchange soldier. Comrade Toxin is retired to his bunk for gathering of rest.

    I've been talking with a stupid Russian accent for like 3 days. It's gotten on a lot of people's nerves. I've been doing it for so long at this point I kinda can't stop. Is strange, eh comrade?

    Everyday I wake up is the worst day of my life.

    My favourite twitter account ever is a parody account of Shawn Horcoff, a Canadian hockey player. The guy running the account pretends the name Horcoff and his nationality are just his cover, and he is actually S. Horcov, a soviet spy who infiltrated the Canadian hockey program to learn its secrets but decided to defect.

    It is hilarious.

    I've seen pics of the missing doomfuck. It exists, so...

    There's a lot of 40k stuff that exists and is just being held back from release for various reasons.

    I've been told GW's biggest bottleneck to creating and selling new products is the available shelf space at their stores.

    Anyone else tried some of the Forge World upgrade kits? They're really cool, plus they're cheaper then ordering bits individually. The robot limbs are neat, too.

    I looks great but it is kind of weird to assemble. You have to hack off an exhaust on the backpack to make it fit.

    Does it not come with a custom backpack like the other heresy-era heavy weapon kit? That seems like an oversight.

    This, for the missile launchers at least. I had four of them for my BA/soon to be more Templars force. The easiest way I found to put them together was attaching the shoulder pad to the arm, testfitting with the torso, then the arm/shoulder to the launcher, then finally the whole thing to the torso.

    When they did the other earily mark heavy weapons they remembered to include some backpacks in the kit that look like they would fit with the weapons mounted.

    Yeah, seems like it was meant to work with this backpack. This backpack was released after the set with the missile launcher though. Maybe they'll revise the set.

    Got the chance to play two games today with my Tyranids, and tried a slightly different list. Swapped out the Hive Guard for a Swarmlord, and took out the Zoanthropes for Doom of Malan'tai. Have to say, I'm in love with both of these choices now.

    Both games were against Chaos Space Marines players, but the first game was using Darkwatch scenario found here (http://www.astronomi-con.com/) in prep for our astronimi-mini-con.
    Spoiler:

    Goes to show the difference just a couple of model substitutions can make sometimes. The whole Hive Tyrant vs. Swarmlord issue seems rather easily settled now. For 20 points more, and 1 wound less (as I'm taking out a Tyrant Guard, but going from 4 to 5 wounds on the Swarmlord) I'm getting a slew of extra psychic powers including two per turn, an invulnerable save in close combat, insta-death swords, extra rolls to reserves, extra rolls to outflanking, and an 18" synaptic range. Pretty damn great.

    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.

    I really want to buy a Swarmlord, but I don't want to have to buy Tyrant Guard yet. And a Swarmlord without Tyrant Guard is just asking for every missile launcher in the game shooting it in the face.

    I didn't like the shoulder-mounted heavies the and I don't like them now.

    As far as I'm concerned the current heavy bolter look is the pinnacle of badass.

    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.

    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 actually like the shoulder heavy bolter, seems more tactical and stuff for my Raptors.

    Outside of my Carnifexes, I'm not magnetising my Tyranids. It's a fun idea, but the limbs just never turn out very stable. A slight knock and they rotate around. And I'm only continuing with my Carnifexes because I actually do swap their loadout in different games.

    For my Hive Tyrants, I plan on having 3. A winged Hive Tyrant with Lashwhip and Bonesword (already have it, Forgeworld model), a normal Tyrant with dual Devourers (or maybe a Heavy Venom Cannon and a pair of Devourers) and a Swarmlord. Covers fast melee, slow fire support and Swarmlord options nicely.

    Magnetizing seems like a great idea until you realize you settle on certain efficies and optimizations and only use one general load out anyways.

    my last HQ model had weapon options magnetized up the wazoo, even though I only ever ran with a frost blade and storm shield.

    Maybe for you ladies I post my magnetized spider Tyrant when I am returning to United States. Is not best job, was first attempt at magnetizing and making use of putty, but is interesting conversion.

    Maybe perhaps is good inspiration for other Hiveminds.

    That's a good point, I forgot you can kit them with Adrenal glands. For 10 points more it would have completely changed the outcome of that fight. I just don't have anywhere else in the list where I can lose the points except to lose a genestealer, and that would be crazy talk. I could drop it from a Prime, but then I'd be losing my 3rd Synapse creature and I don't think 2 are enough at 1500 points, even with the 18" range of the Swarmlord.

    Too much contrast and colour bleeding. It's white shaded with blue, so my camera just makes it look like blue. I played around with some brightness/contrast and saturation with photobucket to arrive sorta what it looks like to the eye:
