@skonk I have Celestines minions done, have since the box came out...but she's still on the sprue...makes me feel silly every time I see that box on the shelf in the garage.

@WindstormSCR every time you post a pic that URL mentions "discordapp"
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 00:49
yeah
they're links from the discord I share with friends
its a skype replacement
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 00:50
So are you using Discord to read/access/post in Gitter?
(sorry if I was unclear)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 00:50
nope

I was kinda hoping you were and there was some functionality I was unaware of :)
So I return home from being out all afternoon
With
Vallejo Metal Color Gold, Army Painter strong tone wash, Army Painter "wasteland XL" tufts for basing, plasma guns from the Warhammer store (special order), Future equivalent floor polish, ink, Liquitex matte medium and distilled water

@CrusherJoe you might enjoy those old codex pages, being a fellow guardhead
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 00:59
Oh I've got my old Codexes LOL
Including 3e and 5e
But my pride n' joy is the Witch Hunter and Daemon Hunter 3e books
Now those were tasty books.
Geebuz I spent all my hobby time today....getting more stuff to do hobby things with
LOL
I say that like it's something new or a bad thing
To be clear:
I fucking love being a hardcore geek, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

New shop light hung in garage with daylight bulbs
Feels like it's time to crank up the ol' airbrush
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 02:37
Mmmmm, Vallejo Surface Primer
28190583_10215713827388910_235388027_n.jpg
"The Black Magic" lol
Which
Unlike "The Brown Magic", doesn't suffer from situational ethics nor does it trade its integrity for a win
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 02:38
@CrusherJoe which lights did you get?
that's also my prefered black primer, but for grey i switched to MiG
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 02:39
Just a regular ol' "suspend from a chain" shop light with 2x 48" florescent "Daylight" bulbs
That and the two LED daylight bulbs I have in other places for fill seems to create perfect airbrushing light in the garage

Vallejo Metal Color has a bit of a learning curve it seems
I'm thinking it shouldn't be thinned
Or I have my pressure too high
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:04
I’ve been basing mine with copper as a first coat, then the gold
Otherwise it’s 2-3 costs of the gold
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:05
hmmmm
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:05
But yeah, no thinning and max 28psi so far
I use the Aluminium and Duraluminium for grey knights, and copper/gold for adeptus Custodes
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:05
That's pretty much in line with my results
Though I'm spraying at like 18-20 psi
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:06
The gold is pretty thin, but it looks great once it gets 2+ coats
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:08
It's a very pretty cool gold
I'm going to spray it with a brown wash after I get it all done and then use Rub N Buff for highlights
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:09
Nice- sounds pretty awesome
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:09
Well....we'll see
These 3 banana boys are an experiment
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:10
I did use a bit of reikland fleshshade on one of the models and it ended up...not as I would have liked. So copper undertone instead
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:10
Which is, honestly, half the fun of painting for me
tekton
@tekton
Feb 18 2018 05:10
Yay experiments!
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 05:10

Hey everyone, thanks for the great work you do with BS! I'm actually looking for the 40k data that I can use in a DB or spreadsheet. Anyone know where I can find that? Thanks.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Feb 18 2018 13:48
Depends on how you need the data served. All we have is xml (the catalogues). If you can work with it, feel free.
gibbouslife
@gibbouslife
Feb 18 2018 13:52
I should be able to do that. Where do I go to find that?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 15:48
If you look up the repository on github you should be able to download the cat files from there
Once downloaded you should be able to open them in an xml editor/viewer like notepad ++

@gibbouslife
Feb 18 2018 15:50
Thank you sir. I'm actually working on understanding it now.

Anyone see any sneak previews of the rules for the Eisenhorn model?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 19:28
yeah, its ok-ish
and he summons a model they don't even sell anymore
François Beaulieu
@francoisbeaulieu
Feb 18 2018 19:31
Hmmm. Not great indeed.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 19:31
still better than a 'standard' xenos inquisitor
though I'd probably use solomon lok instead
considering rex is 105 and lok is 65
François Beaulieu
@francoisbeaulieu
Feb 18 2018 19:51
When did they add those two? I missed that.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 20:00
FW Adeptus Astartes, character appendix
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 20:12
Yeah not where you'd expect them honestly
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:00
how does greyfax compare to this eisenhorn guy?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 21:32
greyfax is still the better option
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:33
ah
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 21:33
3+ armor, ability to pick out psyker characters, and has the +1 to deny
only thing eisenhorn does better is has two deny instead of one
François Beaulieu
@francoisbeaulieu
Feb 18 2018 21:35
Greyfax has 2 deny as well, eisenhorn has an additional psychic power.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 18 2018 21:37
ah, right
so yeah, pretty much no reason ever to run eisenhorn
well
I guess he makes a better beatstick because of the FnP?
seems like a pretty useless niche
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 21:39
Eisenhorn is more hardcore in combat
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:39
I started painting greyfax ages ago but got bored after the base colors + wash so just based her and left her
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 21:39
(slightly)
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:39
need to brighten up and highlight the armour and add a few details
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 21:40
she looks pretty good to me
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:40
wrong one

At 25 points, the boosted daemonhost that comes with him isn't bad.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 21:43
I'd sure be happy with that paintjob...
and yes, I was goign to say... Greyfax won't be summoninga deamon any time soon
James
@skonk
Feb 18 2018 21:44
tbh, if you field greyfax then you have to take celestine too
otherwise who's she going to flirt with?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Feb 18 2018 21:44
hahahaha!! :+1:
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 22:18
No Greyfax denies twice
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe is late to the convo obviously
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 18 2018 22:19
And yes I totally ship Celestine/Greyfax
I mean...who doesn't?
