    Minimum unit size for a lot of models on 40mm is either 3 or 5, having movement trays which cater to both of those seems like it makes sense?

    I know but the fact you can "snap off" or whatever the part of the movement tray looks like a great way to lose or break something

    Pre-ordered my Executioner. Just one for now, but I may get a second one at some point. I really wish GW would just give Primaris a main battle tank that's just a tank....but the Executioner is what we have right now.

    So I was going to finish up some small projects tonight. Finish the final touches on my 2 command/annihilation barges, magnetize a few things on my Tomb Blades, get magnets into the little holes in the top corner of the wall section for my tesseract to add some more stability, and finish building my second triarch stalker.

    I got side lined though, one of the sprue for the command barge has the head, arms, and spine for the Overlord it comes with but no legs or body and I have no idea where they are. I haven't done any conversion with my Necrons and of my 5 Overlords only 1 is a command barge overlord. Really unsure of where these parts are.

    I also have two of the Crypteks from Forgebane to make. I was thinking of putting one on the body of a canoptek spyder to add some variety and I could also use some bits from the lychguard box I have to make a destroyer lord with the other canoptek spyder I have unbuilt. I have two old metal ones and I bought two of the new ones but I'm not really into the model.

    Yes
    I only saw it briefly when I was thinking about rebooting my CSM when the Vigalis books came out but when I came back for something I noticed it was replaced so I thought I saw it somewhere else .

    Is it worth the effort to put old Codices and rulebooks on eBay or are they basically worthless? I got books from 3rd to 6th edition plus old Warhammer books.

    I think some are worth more for collectors items depending on the shape. But I would do a skim. Not sure my guess they aren't worth a ton.

    If I'm reading it correctly, they're only available with the Blackstone Fortress expansion, but they include rules to use them with 40k.
    This expansion contains two brand-new models, which will initially only be available in this set – a Traitor Commissar and his bodyguard, a Chaos Ogryn. There are also rules for using these two models in Warhammer 40,000 as well as all of the cards, counters and tiles required to play a new quest within the Blackstone Fortress.

    Though, I do wonder how that ogryn is supposed to swing that club thing with the big ass chaos wheel growing through it's chest. Seems like that may get in the way a bit, no?

    The rules to use the Ambul in 40k were in the box
    It's been used a few times in kill team as a random 3rd {though it would be interesting to do that with a real person instead of dice rolling }

    The joke is that he has been very vocal at cons or otherwise in person about his feelings on Imperial Knights and hates the idea of Chaos Knights in particular. I don’t have any source for this other than my local GW store manager.

    Also he allegedly hates contrast paints.

  • italianranmaitalianranma Registered User regular
    Also, I’ve got a ton of models still to assemble and paint: Drukhari, Orks, Shadowspear, the CSM apocalypse box I just bought... Should I get the Imperial Knights box too and also 3 of those Chaos Knights too? I feel like I’m pretty close to summoning a deamon with all the plastic offerings I have. Which Chaos god has greed and/or irresponsible spending habits in their portfolio?

    Depending on the cost of drugs and/or prostitutes in the 40k setting, I'd guess Slaanesh.
    Though, the case could be made for Nurgle as well, unless The Imperium has some kind of remarkably good universal healthcare system in place.
    Maybe Khorne? I mean, life is cheap in the grim darkness, but he takes it in bulk.

    I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be Tzeentch though, after all, he's the lord of change.

    I am not that into the knights as I can play apoc with my eldar even more so with my ynnari
    Just I have sour feelings toward apoc from the last time I played but that's due to certain people. Because of the eldar army I gave my brother at xmas and the spoc wrathguard deal he wants to do his army as Biel Tan but if I go to the GW store and they still might have that paint deal going. If I were to ask what are the paints for Biel Tan would he be able to answer it?

    Still I am disappointed in my try at painting the siam hann guardians yesterday I know it was hot but I really need to get a lamp and set aside a place to paint as the couch and in front of my computer are not working.

  • italianranmaitalianranma Registered User regular
    Waitaminute.... If I get 4 Chaos Knights, then I could make one for each god! Brilliant!

    In all honesty I wasn't keen on getting Imperial Knights originally, but something about Chaos Knights piques my interest. Based on my move schedule and about how long it takes me to paint even a single squad though, I'm not sure I'll be able to field an Apocalypse game until the 9th edition hits.

    I think I will get a chaos Knight to give my Nurgly bois some more heavy support, I already have a couple of Armiger Helverns so I can also work towards a proper Nurgle themed Knight army too.

    Really if I go to the GW store and get the paint deal but ask we are looking to do Biel Tan colors
    Packing 3 guardians and the brushes in a bike ride {which sucks as between the two of us we have one working bike right now} Would they show us the colors and help? Like prove to us we can do this? As a side question is can we get the greens and yellows to do the Masque of the Veiled Path as well ?

    As a side looking at the 10 paint deal it was the base paint that trips me up and the tech one that is a argument

  • MazzyxMazzyx Comedy Gold Registered User regular
    I plan to get at least one chaos knight. And since it is out at the edge of it if they are good I am totally bringing to NoVA instead of my current supreme command detachment. That was kind of my original plan if they came out in time.

    A chaos knight, 3x lord discordant, 30xcultist, 15xcsm (red corsairs), same daemon engines. And fill out the rest with other toys.

    The legs of the chaos knights look so much cooler than the imperial ones. Are the calves longer, or are they just better posed?

    Boo it ends today and a few of the colours were out of stock on the site
    Still I feel I am going to set up a paint area for myself and do my challenge of the masque of the veiled path with contrast and normal paint as you can get the yellows and greens in one or two coats so that leaves the checker pattern

    Yeah, so I’ve been looking at the chaos knight kit and I reckon it’s compatible enough with the regular one that you could make a “clean” version of the new kit torso and old kit legs to use as a beat-up jury-rigged old veteran suit and use the remaining bits plus some judicious re-posing to make a Cerastus Knight in plastic…

    Are they? I just thought they were stumpy stomp-stomp legs like a box dread. If that's the case, it's definitely due to the fact that it's more pronounced on the Chaos Knights.

    Only if those dreadnoughts are mounted on Sentinels.

    Then we can build a full Titan on the back of your dreadnought mounted knights. It's space robots all the way down.

    Ooooh, I see it now. Yeah, it's gotta be the better proportions, the whole bestial look of the Renegade Knights that make them look better. That said, I've always been a sucker to Chaos aesthetics, so I might be a little bit biased.
