    Now I did not know how bendy and soft the resin they use gets in the heat

    I still have two unbuilt forgebane cryptek and one built forgebane cryptek along with the built conversion. I kind of want to convert a second one but I don't have any ideas for what to do.

    I also think I have more Necron HQs than Space Wolves HQs which feels weird.

    They charge an arm and a leg for that lady commissar, though.

    Also, Brainleech, the people you play/paint with sound like complete turds.

    they caused me to quit playing 40k for a time and it was bad
    I remember this clearly for several reasons as this was the last time I went to Mcd's as well
    Because of various reasons I had seen small groups of women at the tourney games whom would comment about how the models were painted. One asked me how hard it was to paint. I said it's not hard it's really one of those things you learn as you will have your hits and misses. This the start of youtube I point out how you can find various videos to help you get started. She thanks me and then goes back to looking at the small boxes and blisters of minis when John and his cadre of toxic start the comments of women don't belong here and other words. She and her friend blow them off He comes back with his slimeball of a friend and he beings saying things like show me the goods and smile
    The girls still keep ignoring them. The girl from earlier asks what would be a good model to start with I told her it depends do you like the look of it? Does it look like something you would enjoy painting? when John now with three people use me ot corner her and saying gross stuff saying this is a boy's club no girls allowed. One looks at me saying you ruin the game by helping girls get into it. [I had talked to a few women about the modeling aspect of it. So one begins to start to fondle her I grab his hand so she can get away. John says you wanto to fight waving his hands to his other 2 friends and I said there is not enough room in this corner if you want to go outside I would be more than willing.
    I finished my game packed up my army and never went back
    The deatchwatch rpg game a few months later was the farewell to gw and 40k for me for the time As I brought my friend she wanted to play with people outside of the solo mission stuff we were doing to see. We get there find a table where she creates her character and the person with a sidekick says Girls can only play SoB not space marines takes away her character sheet and is a jerk for the next couple of minutes

    We left she was very upset at that
    From fall of 2011 till 2017 I did not have any interest in 40k or Gw stuff
    I had ebay set up to email about Hero Quest stuff so Silver Tower was a WTF is this?

    I got Severina Raine with the storm trooper kill team even though I don't like the pulpy sci fi look of them
    I have haphazardly looked at other paint jobs for them to but I just don't know they still sit in their boxes waiting

    That is some bullshit. One of us would have gotten our asses kicked. Probably me, but that wouldn't stop me from trying.

    I have Serverina Raine. I still need to read her stories.

    In other news, I've decided to try my hand at recasting. I bought some Blue Stuff and Milliput and put in a bid on some old Valhallans. I'll let y'all know how this works out and if its feasible for making a full army out of.

    If you're thinking about liquid green stuff, it is worthless. You need real GS, or you could try vallejo's putty (their liquid GS equivalent; it's much better).

    Speaking of GS, anyone had trouble with theirs? In all the batches I've bought (regardless of manufacturer) the outermost layer of the yellow part has oxydized and become solid and unmixable. I solve this by scraping out the still-soft yellow stuff in the middle. It's a bit of a pain in the neck, though.

    I've had the edges of the yellow oxidise sometimes, but normally it can still be mixed in to activate - it just requires more effort.

    Yikes, just noticed that virtually everything GW sells seems to have been hit by the rumoured price increases. If I knew it was hitting that many things - and in the UK as well! - I'd have bought some stuff in advance.

    Can you buy them or get them without the film?

    Because I posted the necrons I worked on yesterday in the stuffy heat of my house. I had a question because I vaguely remember in the 1st necron codex the war in heaven was millions of years ago I think in the newest one it's only 100k or so?

    That is what I thought at first but then I kind of had my doubts
    Still I am going with the dusty aged look for my necrons
    I might do their bases jungle themed to match my tyranids [because when I got the swarm that guy sold long ago he tossed in a large ziplock of the jungle trees GW used to do} I might do it across all my 40k armies for a theme
    Expect for my 30k Imperial fists they still await the siege of the emperor's palace for the iconography

    Necrons are definitely still the 60million year old rightful rulers of the galaxy.

    They are the ancient alien race with a strong warp connection that "ruled" the galaxy befor the Necrontyr got all jealous of them for being more or less immortal and healthy while they themselves had to wrangle with their short-lived decrepit bodies.

    They seeded life across the galaxy and created uplifted several species like the Eldar and the (Kr)Orks. Due to that they're also partially respnsible for the warp being as "interesting" as it now.

    In Fantasy the used to be quivalent to the Slann up to the 4th edition, I think, when all references to the Slann creating the world in the annals of the phoenix kings in the high elf army books were replaced with Old Ones.

    edit:
    Blood Ravens rules leaked and Gabriel Angelos has his Terminator armour jump attack from DoW3...

    Blood Ravens chapter tactic is rerolling 1s when denying the witch with their psyker and never be wounded on unmodified 1s and 2s.

    stratagem is upgrading a Librarian to Chief Librarian for 1 extra deny and knowing 1 extra power.

    Got scammed by my first kickstarter, and it was 40k related.

    This dude keeps saying stuff has shipped but no one received anything and theres been no photographic proof. There goes $120 (two thunderbolt derivatives)

    Sigh. On the plus side I just got an FDM 3d printer. So going to print all the vehicles I want now.

    Yay, more Mechanicus in the pipeline:

    This looks pretty much like a larger version of the sensors on the Skitarii backpacks.
    The concept sketch for the Skorpius has a blurb about it carrying 10 Skitarii or 5 heavy Skitarii. I guess that's from that kit.

    What would be some good purchases for 40k to expand the Tau apoc box I bought?

    I'm keeping my Tau KT and 40K army separate since in doing different paint schemes so I'm starting from the beginning. I also have a box of fire Warriors for the 40k part.

    The Apoc box is almost everything you need to make The Eight, isn't it?

    You could go that route

    That is what I was considering. I have a broadside so I'd just need to buy the commander and I can make the eight.

    I kind if want to magnetize the apoc models and the broadside so I can use them for other stuff but magnets are just so time consuming and the battlesuits for my KT stuff are magnetized and it kind of sucked to do.

    For now, if the units have a Movement stat and the BS is described as x+ it'll be an 8th edition book.
