There's the typical resin gate sawing and filing and whatnot but nothing extreme
It's a big giant fighter plane basically. Very Imperial.

bandsaw with a small-tooth woodcutting blade
will change your life for that shit
I dunno what it says that I've built enough personal/comission FW to know that
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Mar 31 2018 02:51
Well....I don't have a bandsaw so I'll have to stick to the classic razor/bone saw and vise combo

I was happy with Garfield in amazing.
And the new kid in homecoming is good
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 31 2018 02:56
tbh I think it's because I prefer the 2002 story origin to the "tony stark mini me" one
even if the former is terribly acted
and the fact that it panders towards the avengers leaves a bad taste in my mouth
I prefer standalone things
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 31 2018 02:56
The issue with that is they shoehorned iron spider as an origin.

i thought toby was great as peter parker, and garfield as spider man; but neither great as the alternate

Spiderman just...isn't my favorite -- but I really like Homecoming.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

I much prefer Garfield’s Spider-Man over macguire
Organic web shooters were. ... odd

So we know the BoLS people -- we've all written for Larry at one point or the other. Chris got to read the preview copy they got. Larry wouldn't let him take pics. :)

Tabletop tactics has a drukhari fight

I can do things now
ALL THE SHOW/HIDE FLAGS

@WindstormSCR
Mar 31 2018 05:07
@alphalas @GenWilhelm @CrusherJoe they confirmed that wych cult, kabal, coven traits are mutually exclusive, can only have one per detachment, which explains the massive number of patrols allowable in the raiding party rules
so TOs might seriously need to consider a drukhari exception to keep them functional

HiRes work in progress pictures of my own stuff reminds me how bad I am at hand painting
@WindstormSCR so i have two guardian squads, the start collecting box (both old AND new), the bto characters/models- any suggestions on next things to buy? there's a new warhammer store opening near by and i don't need any tau or imperium at this point...
tekton
@tekton
Mar 31 2018 06:11
oh, and an additional fire prism. There's a good chance i'm getting two wave serpents, another prism, and a pair of fliers if i'm not careful.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 31 2018 07:05
@tekton i have a good chunk of the range, the best thing I've found so far is to figure out what models you really like for whatever reason and build to complement or work with that choice
In my case I enjoy the styling of the vehicles, so I play a lot of mech lists
I know a different guy that loves to run aspect footdar

@Kohato see #2742 I told ya, we're all idiots that will think a warlord still has the original weapon that the relic replaces :( little faith in humanity maintained :(
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 31 2018 11:22
Haha, That one was a special kind of fun - seems to think that you don't pay for the points cost of the original weapon. Amis got it tho.

Nope.
Do whatever in NO (Narrative, Open) Play. But Matched needs to stay matched. My friend that read the codex says it'll be easy enough for DE to make 3 battalions. That's all everyone else gets, and that's plenty of CP.

How we all doing?
Had another game of shadespire today. Tried Dwarves this time (usually played Khorne) and they were a lot easier to play.
Need to decide how I want to run my crons and build the 2 forgebanes worth of guff i have, as my next job.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 31 2018 17:14
Dwarves are really easy to get inspired which makes them more powerful. Khorne is pretty much forced to take losses before gettjng inspired, so you're at a disadvantage.
James
@skonk
Mar 31 2018 17:15
yeh
i have all the warbands so i'll try a different one next i think
Iain Launchbury

Mar 31 2018 17:17
Skaven are pretty fun. Managed to pull of an awesome move in my last game where I played earthquake to slide 3 of them onto objectives in my last play of the game!
James
@skonk
Mar 31 2018 17:17
nice :)
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 31 2018 17:20
They're also quite easy to inspire, and become surprisingly hard to kill.
James
@skonk
Mar 31 2018 17:24
i'll have a bash with them next
@WindstormSCR ^^^^ as promised
