    Heh, I know who that is. Good guy. I beat his Tau to death.

    He's not going to say anything interesting though. Maybe about Space Marine. Absolutely right about their being too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Edit: Heh. "demand for content was known in the studio." but completely ignored by the parent company.

    I would kill a man for a more focused Space Marine sequel with the multiplayer modes mentioned in the AMA.

    I'm aware all the cool kids love to hate on it, but Space Marine was one of my favorite gaming experiences of last year up there with Witcher 2, Skyrim, and Deus Ex.

    None of the multiplayer modes mentioned in AMA were any good. There's a reason they didn't ship.

    Well I've got a bunch of the modern rectangular ones with 5 depressions for infantry, but I've also got the square ones that have 5 in a pattern the way the 5 pips are on a d6:
    The rectangular ones are the one I'm talking about, instead of the old style squares, but I'm short on everything so I'm wouldn't be picky... now that i think about it, I'll give GW a call and see if they can do anything about it.
    *edit*
    Actually, looks like they sell them, $4 for four base sprews. I guess I'll have to add those on when I make my tax return splurge. Also, given the size, epic bases seem a real good candidate for the new textured paint.

    More exploration into converted Grotesques. I rather like the mostly matching aesthetics and less monstrous appearance. Turning these:

    I find is terribly sad that Relic knew of the demand for a new Homeworld, but THQ didn't care.

    I want Homeworld 3 :( Chances of getting it seem to be getting slimmer and slimmer. I'd take Homeworld 3 over a new Space Marine or DoW.

    So I am scratch-building my own Ork Battlewagon with a Kill-Kannon.

    Im wondering what are some of the best ways to equip it? Its open-topped so I can have Lootas firing from its top, but besides that what else should I equip it with?

    Im looking into Either a regular Kannon or a Lobba and 4 rocket launchers or 2 rocket launchers and 2 Big-Shootas

    Congratulations on the new trooper! Maybe one day he'll be a vet with a meltagun. Weird because my cousin's wife just delivered a boy, and my family is pretty involved because he's in Afghanistan.

    What, give it to another developer to make a horribly bug ridden game in a different genre to what the fans want?

    Excited.

  • SJSJ Registered User regular
    I still think the original gameplay stuff we saw in the very first trailer looked way, way more exciting than what we ended up getting out of Space Marine. Still loved the game, but I kind of wonder if we could ever get that other game.

    I had this weekend all set aside to just paint away at my army. No other major obligations. And now this happens:

    This guy would make a great Grotesque. However, Rackham went out of business and it's probably impossible to find one nowadays.

    I agree with this.

    As shitty as it is to say because people lost jobs, I would not be opposed to THQ handing Space Marine off to Vigil. But then I'd guess they're busy with Darksiders 2 and what's left of Dark Millenium.

    Wow. I arranged with a friend of a friend to buy the two Rat Ogres from his Blood Island box.

    The whole box is 850 SEK; I felt generous paying 200 for just the two ratties.

    Turns out he's giving me all the Skaven stuff from the box for 200.

    The Dreadnought DLC was really bizarre to me. I bought it and played twice and both times the team without the dreadnought lost 41-0. Haven't played since.

    @Echo - if you are looking to offload those extra Skaven and would ship to the UK I know somone who would be interested.

    There was a prepainted version of the aberration prime that looks very similar to the prime you posted, you might be able to grab one for cheap off ebay or somewhere since the prepaints were generally maligned

    The Alchemists of Dirz had a bunch of other stuff that would work well in a DE army

    Actually, I've been trying to get my hands on one to use for parts for a daemon prince. Can't seem to find an affordable one, though.

    Ebay is typically full of Epic stuff. The main reason I don't like the Tyranid stuff is its mini-2nd edition Tyranids, which look pretty terrible.

    Also, FW discontinued their Epic Tyranids, and I wanted some of them :(

    There's a couple of people on Tactical command who have made new versions using 3D printing and 3rd party casting services - they look pretty incredible. Will see if I can did up a link.

    eBay UK has one for 2 of these "quid" units, and a few more for 7-8.

    Also, the aberration would make for a better daemon prince/pain engine than a grotesque since it is quite large

    It's about as tall as GW ogres/rat ogres but it covers a dreadnought base easily
