@acebaur where did you get your adapters? I've been looking for somewhere to get some for 35mm > 32mm
*25 > 32

with the 100 point reduction on the cost they seem quite appealing now
can actually be had for around the same price as a knight now
points-wise i mean

@whiskeyjuvenile I got them from TTAdaptors
Buy them from their site though, not shapeways

Just convinced GW to let me return the limited editions of Traitors Hate and Wrath of Magnus
that i bought 6+ months ago

good one on GW for agreeing and on you for mad skillz

well tbh i think i may have triggered them changing the stuff it says on the site
when you go there its pretty clear, return anything for any reason, just needs to be in original packaging (doesnt say sealed)
there is another section for terms and conditions of sale that outlines restrictions
but I pointed out that if you go looking for returns info.... you're going to click on the returns button and read ya know.. the returns page :)
and at no point does the returns page even hint at there being anything else that needs to be read
so they've said they'l exchange them (give me a voucher code) but i have to return the books obvously
the way they worded that made me think they thought having to actually send the books back could put me off
I always felt pretty ripped off though; buying those 2 books and they both got replaced within a few weeks by the traitor legions book which had strait up reprints of the rules
infact the traitor legions book and its contents was announced on the day of release of wrath of magnus, before id even got it in my hands (cos the pre-order didnt arrive till the monday after)

Last month I also got forgeworld to agree to let me return some built rapier weapon batteries that I bought after they FAQ'd them to not be usable by Death Guard just after I'd bought them to use in my Death Guard lol. But after they agreed to it, it made me feel better about the situation so I just kept them.

I got a free LRC from GW once
Because the metal assault cannon wouldn't go together properly and had to be glued in a static position
James
@skonk
Aug 08 2017 12:33
they are over priced as hell, especially fw; but once they have your money they seem pretty damn good when it comes to customer aftercare if im honest
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 08 2017 12:34
GW has always been pretty good about customer care
I got a Storm Eagle kit from FW once that had a too-warped-to-fix las cannon....one phone call later and a new one was on the way

I have 2 Dread Claws, paid for 1
and 12 outrider bikes, paid for 6
i had such a hard time building the dread claw due to issues with the casting that i rang up and moaned
and they sent me a second one out, an entire kit
but for some reason they must have made a mistake and resent the entire order
including the 6 bikes
if that happened normally id have told em and sent em back but i was so fucking fuming at how frustrated the dread claw had made me that i just kept em
at one point it made me so angry that i just fucking smashed it between my hands, ripped it appart
luckily i was able to fix it
the second one was relatively easy to build, first one clearly had issues and it was like trying to glue together a bundle of loaded springs

@skonk I've had the same thing, I have 3 stormeagles, only paid for two, I had to rebuild the back half of the second one by using greenstuff that I moulded into place using casts from one of the good ones

Scorpion arrives friday, I'm hoping for no defects with it or the wasps
and with a little luck my entire eldar army will get finished/painted during konor
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 08 2017 18:27
That's good going, unless you have a really small Eldar army if course... I struggle to paint very quickly, so everything takes me a long time... But I'm making excellent progress since Christmas with my Deathwatch, in comparison to the last 10 years I've actually painted some models!!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 08 2017 19:14
finished list of models:
eldrad, 10 guardians + HWP, wave serpent, 2 wasp walkers, 2 jetseers, 1 jetlock, 15 windriders, 1 vyper, 2 fire prisms, 1 nightspinner, 2 hemlocks, 1 scorpion type II
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 08 2017 19:26
Blimey... Since Christmas I've not quite finished Artemis, 10 veterans, 5 vanguard veterans, a razorback, and a dreadnought... I have built, undercoated, and based loads of other dudes but putting paint on carefully takes me a long time
I would post a picture but I can't figure out how from my phone
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 08 2017 19:28
I don't have all of that list painted, the wasps and scorpion aren't even here
but the paintjob isn't overly complicated
so my challenge to myself is to finish all of that by the end of konor
ideally each type during it's bonus week :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 08 2017 19:31
Yeah, but that's 5 weeks, I've been at mine for nearly 8 months... (I'm still happy though, got some painting mojo back so my Eldar might get finished somewhen - thinks of falcon sealed inbox from the late 90's...) :+1: good luck!!
this made me laugh more than it should have

Aug 08 2017 22:05
tbh if I lost my entire collection and had to start over I'd be strongly torn between doing chaos or eldar now that chaos is actually getting some character beyond murder and spikes
in other news, I have figured out a rather nasty 5-drop raven guard list
Battalion + Vanguard:
Intercessor x2 in Repulsor (Anti-horde loadout, gat cannons/hb)
Reivers (SFTS)
Tartaros Terminators (SFTS)
Captain in terminator (SFTS)
Storm Eagle Gunship (tac squad, lt, apothecary, captain, and centurion devastators)
leaves me with 4 cp for whatever
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 08 2017 22:10
plan would be to kick the cent devs out into cover with the apothecary and possibly the cap or LT if I felt it needed, then drop the tacs wherever they need to go
aim for turn 1 assaults with terminators and denied overwatch via reivers

i own 2 of those
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Aug 08 2017 22:27
stormeagles are good but expensive pointswise
James
@skonk
Aug 08 2017 22:27
dreadclaw is 200 points now
so not cheap
whats the movement characteristic on the storm eagle?
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 08 2017 22:28
They bring tons of firepower though
20 to 45
James
@skonk
Aug 08 2017 22:28
problem with the dreadclaw is if you DS it you have the 9 inch limitation, if you fly it over its only 15 inches
Alex Baur

4 hellstrike missiles a turn

Lascannons are easily as good, just more bursty
Plus they look cooler on the mini
