I'd prefer it if GW stopped trying to re invent "cannon" every couple of years.


This confused me when I got back into gaming after a looong time out. The core stuff is pretty much unchanged, but they ham-up every codex that comes out now. :rolleyes:

I still game fairly regularly but the paintiing and modelling has taken over most of the hobby time these days. Much more personally rewarding, and easier to find the time for too.

Mat Ward and Robbin Cruddance.
Blood Angels bro-fisting necrons! Ultramarines are teh greetest!1!11!!!! :rolleyes:

Those 2 people are the reason why I've stopped playing 5th edition, and have bought 2nd edition book on eBay.

40K was never 'grim dark'. It wa satire, and a parody of 'grim-dark' sci-fi.
Case in point:
Ghazgul Thrakka, pillager of the Northern Industrial region. Full name (Ghazgul) Mag-Urk Thrakka....

The boys at Forge World still know how to write for 40K. Badab War books are excellent. As are the RPGs Fantasy Flight released.

To be honest, the fluff doesnt really bother me too much, it's only important in terms of how I theme my armies.

I like to mix it up a bit, armies like the orks are just satire-in-green, they really are, I just love converting them to make them look insane in the membrane.

My Black Templars just look awesome. They're meant to be religious fanatics, and they really do look the part (one of my squad leaders has ten purity seals on him), it's great, the idea of an army of hyper-technologically advanced church-nuts really appeals to me, you can just take it to extremes.

Modelling is one of those things where you make it your own, there is no right or wrong, is basically my point.

Still working on pictures of my black reach lot.

Putting together a design for an apocalypse conversion atm. I've been toying with the idea of getting a landraider, gutting it and turning it into a mobile Librarian, to a degree.

-Make it open top, section off the front to make a drivers cabin.
-Replace the front hatch and bolters with flamers and a melta.
-Replace the side hatches and turrets with something resembling stasis pods with daemonhosts in.
-Add LEDs to the pods, make them all glowy.
-Deck out the internal section that's open top with books, a table and stuff, with room for two psykers.
-Add a raised deck to the rear, extending over the open-top area, with some controls, a speaker tower, a desk with a huge book on and a librarian reading from it.
-Cover it in purity seals, scrolls etc.

Play it as a souped up psychic beacon, essentially, give it access to a ton of imperial psychic abilities, multiple per turn and just let it loose, maybe give it one ability for each crew daemonhost (the librarian kinda preaches from his little tower and compels them to do his bidding or some rubbish)...

Might be useless to play with, but will look very religious-nut...

My ork warboss - last thing I had a proper go at, mostly represents my best painting skills, would like to improve enough to commission paint eventually but think I'm a long way off! Not sure how to base him, will decide once Ive done the remaining black reach orks :)

Nice, I like it :)
Like the skin, not lime green like a lot of orks I've seen! Sand for the base perhaps?

Here's my WIP photos of my latest project. Someone put up some tutorials for how to paint battle-damaged Imperial Fists, so I thought I'd have a go. Still WIP, but quick to paint.

And also - for my Dark Heresy/Inq28mm project, a 'true-scale'. The techmarine's legs have been completely re-sculpted. Not sure how to base him, thinking industrial or space-hulk
They're taking longer than planned, nearly finished though.

So I've been wiling away at my army for some time now, and unfortunately due to the nature of student living, it's been packed away for the best part of a month and unfortunately, there was some damage, whilst taking the time to assess the situation (mostly gluing heads back on, few snapped swords, nothing some green stuff, superglue and a repaint won't fix), I decided to inventory my Black Templars force.

This is an apocalypse force, and is structured/insane as such.

Command Squad:
StormLord Superheavy Tank; Yarrick's Gift w/ extra armor.
-Grimaldus & Retinue
-Helbrecht & Retinue
-Techmarine
-10 Marine Command Squad
-Force Commander/Marshal

Additional HQ:
-Emperors Champion

Elites:
-Techmarine & Servitors (riding along in the StormLord as a detached squad, because this is Apoc and that's how we roll).
-Dreadnaught
-5 Sword Bretheren
-5 Terminators

Fast Attack:
-Bike Squad (4 normal, 1 attack)
-Land Speeder Typhoon
-5 Jump Marines

Troops:
-10 Normal Marines (Rhino transport)
-5 Normal Marines

Heavy Support:
-Landraider

Codex Detachments ("Donations" from other codices sent to "help out"):
-Blood Angels Stormraven w/ 5 Death Company & Chaplain
-5 Dark Angels Veterans w/ Librarian

It's shaping up to be a pretty scary force, the guys at my local store certainly don't like facing off to the StormLord and the squad within (so far I've fielded just that against 1500pt tyranids, tau, orks and eldar and come away pretty much unscathed).

Next up will be:
-Sisters of battle Repentia & an immolator
-Space Wolf wolves and cavalry!
-Basilisks/Manticores
-Grey Knights
-More Templar troops
-Stormtalon Gunships (these will be the Ultramarine donation)
-More bikes (Ravenwing and White Scars donations)
-Some sort of scary forgeworld thingy

*Each "donation" squad will also be fielding a command unit from the respective army - the idea I'm going for is that Helbrecht is facing off against something nasty and has been given a number of extra units from other codices or areas of the imperium in order to demonstrate his prowess as a mentor. And the forgeworld thingy? Well that's going the way of Grimaldus; he wanted it so he took it, whether or not he was really allowed it.

:D

I feel I should just add that yesterday I did a bit of target shooting with the damaged parts of my Tau Army. They have been in poor storage for a good few years, and there were many casualties.

Befitting the fact they are a ranged army, I set the broken ones up at the end of the garden and preceded to obliterate them with an air rifle. The troops were very hard to hit, the battle suits, not so much. Good times.

Its slightly depressing shooting a 15 model, but hey ho.

I think little models of this sort make the best air rifle targets ever, their strange, brittle, puny (metal? I can't remember) bodies just explode into a billion pieces if you hit them right.

Crazybones are another thing that make awesome targets - Shame they're too small to be able to hit them at range with an airsoft gun though, my air rifle's seen better days, i.e. the ones before it was 6+ years old and knackered.

Loving Grimaldus and the DA Librarian :)

So, the new 6th Edition starter set, Dark Vengence came out t'other weekend. Anyone else pick it up? It's bloody nice. Really, really insane amount of detail on everything.
Unfortunately, I now want to start a Chaos army. Bugger...

Also, does anyone play Dawn of War 2? Want to team up? If you do, message me on Steam - Huberticus (but say you're from AFUK).
