    I miss the Last Chancers. :( Having a load of them with voxes individually deepstrike onto an apoc game and call down orbital strikes onto their positions was one of the most fluffy and awesome things I've ever done.

    A pink of some kind, wash with whatever purple thing there is now (I still have pots and more pots of Leviathan Purple). Then do the pink, then 50/50 pink/white for highlighting?

    Anybody have tips for getting the glow-effect used on this Noise Marine's legs?

    Not the right thread I imagine.
    There also isn't an intentional glow effect on the model you linked. I think you might be reading the grey highlight on the legs as a purple glow...but it's just grey.

    So I could use some help with a crash course on stripping models. I bought a can of GW white primer for my Trygon, and it's a complete bottle of concentrate ass terribleness. I don't know if I did something completely wrong, but it came out as the weirdest mixture of chalkiness that went all over my hands, and somehow became terrible goop by the time it hit the model. It just poured into the recesses and ruined all the details while leaving the flat surfaces with almost nothing on them. It's almost impressive how bad this looks.

    I've read before that simple green is effective, if I just fill up a sink or bucket of some kind and let the Trygon sit in that for a day or two, should I be good? I only did a very brief couple of sprays before noticing how awful it was, so it's not like the entire model is covered. I've never had to strip a mini before and I understand it's not easy for plastic, but I think I could get this crap off even with a knife is I had the time and patience for it.

    So, am I dooming myself to a life of misery if I've never played before and want to start a Grey Knight Army?

    I just finished stripping a whole stack of models simplegreen works great for some models but anything where the primer bonded well it did next to nothing. I found that some acetone free nail polish remover on a cotton swab worked pretty fantastic especially on flat surfaces although you do need to be careful as it can degrade the plastic a bit (5 minutes+ exposure in my experience)

    Anybody have any experience magnetizing jump packs? What size magnet would you use? I have a stack of assault marines that I want the option of going with or without packs.

    2mm magnets should do just fine.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose Registered User regular
    But 3mm exactly match the pegs/holes on standard Marine packs. You just need a little GS to make 'em fit the slots on a jump pack.

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

    So I went to check out the GW site for the first time in a long time.

    Holy shit every GW paint pot in one set? $500? Geez. Then I looked.

    When the hell did they completly replace the entire paint range? Is it any good? I need answers!

    That was about two weeks ago. Some of it is very good, some of it is very meh. New glazes are pretty great. There's no more Devlan Mud, I don't care what anyone says.

    The new paint range is hit-or-miss like every paint range.

    I recently bought another batch. Overall I think they did well and I like how it's now an end-to-end system and even has a few frills like paint-on primer and gloss/matte varnish. The return of glazes is a nice touch, though I roll my own.

    Mostly I think it's pretty great for a new painter just getting started and I'm fairly certain that was their goal.

    Since you're local, I can tell you finding something that can strip a Plastic model is difficult in downtown Toronto.

    I used to use Simple Green, but Canadian Tire stopped selling it. It looks like Walmart still sells it if you can get to one.

    Basically just soak the model in the cleaner, maybe with some water added, overnight. The next day use an old toothbrush to scrub it while running it under warm water. If it doesn't all come off, you can soak and try again.

    There was something else I tried that worked well I found at Canadian Tire, I think it was called "purple power" or something like that. That worked well but I haven't seen it on the shelves in a little while.

    I miss the actual special character unit. I won against 1000pts of marines with them once. Also, some of the best painting 18 year old FroThulhu ever did.

    I have used normal Dot4 Brake Fluid to strip both plastic and metal models before. You need then to soak for a while, but the paint comes off a treat with no damage to the model.

    I still want to make an Inquisition force with no actual Grey Knights. Led by Inquisitor Adrastia.



    Also, I'm cross-posting this here on the account I finally finished my stupid mob.

    Apparently I hate my wallet because I've been seriously considering starting up a new Dark Eldar army. I used to play Necrons but the new fluff just doesn't do it for me. (I LIKED my ranks of soulless, personality-less terminators led by a force of eldritch hunger and hatred. Not the James Bond movie villains of the 40k Universe).

    Buuut, I heard that a new edition is going to hit in the summer. It would probably be more sensible to wait until that hits, save my cash, and consider what I want to do when that is out and I don't risk making something that will fall apart instantly under the new rules set.

    I also actually have most of an Ultramarines force to paint that has been sitting around for ages, now I think about it. Made purely because the players at my local GW are fairly obnoxious to the kids about Ultramarines and I wanted to troll them. I am a horrible human being. :(

    Been thinking about getting a KR case. Four Raiders/Ravagers in one unit, two of those units, and then the footsloggers in my old GW case.

    edit: actually, a KR-3 holds three units. 2x Raiders, one footslogger. Hmm.
