So...looks like I am finally crawling my way out of some work-and-life-related "depression" (not of the clinical variety, but of the melancholy and don't feel like doing things I normally like doing variety)
Since I've done more painting over the last two days than I've done in months
Also
I cleaned up the desk, so it looks 100% less like an episode of Hobby Hoarders

Having an organized workspace with actual...space to work...really makes a difference

Everything there but the gold was done with an airbrush -- DEFINITELY still a WIP but yay progress -- first I've made in a long time. I've also got some Bullgryn that I tried out a new technique for skin with that I'm very pleased with. I think I'll get them wrapped up tomorrow
Then it's basically all Scions, all the time until they're done
...and thank you, @tekton
The airbrush/prep area is in the garage so there's stuff that's not shown

Hey anybody got any recommendations for inexpensive paint stands/holders/etc.?
I'm eyeballing this:
It's not perfect, but the ones I've seen with storage drawers get pricey real quick

That stand looks pretty good to me, I don't really know what I'm looking at mind...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 27 2018 13:36
Which stand?
The one in the link I posted?

Funny you ask, I was starting to think about making one for my two spots as well
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 27 2018 16:32
Oh yeah I love the HobbyZone stuff...but it's a bit pricey. It IS nice though. Very nice. When things settle a bit with the new gig in July I'll begin to think abou sensei swag like HZ lol

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 27 2018 17:00
Yeah the best value that I've found is the OPPHIR one on Amazon
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 27 2018 20:24
and yes, I was referring to the stand you linked :smile:
btw, I'm working the Harlequins codex tonight
hopefully it should be ready to go in a little while, since @WindstormSCR did a great job of adding in place holders, all the links, and a lot of the logic too :+1:

Man I really hope he's okay

@FarseerVeraenthis
May 27 2018 21:17
uhuh, it is a little worrying that we've not heard from him in a few days, but if he needs some offline downtime to re-compose then that's cool
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 27 2018 21:17
Indeed
GDI :( Now I need to get 4 copies of the new weapon sprues
and hope that there's enough bits in the Dominus knights so I can magnetize all options
And I need to get a Hekhtur and weapon bits for his knight to magnetize
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
May 27 2018 22:26
sounds like great fun
@Mad-Spy are you ready for that SM Traits PR to be merged??
because I'd like to release the Harlequin Codex updates tonight if possible :smile:
@flakpanda you're a reviewer too

I would just like to point out two words that make me very, very happy: volcano lance
I would also like to point out that when I first saw that thing I said, "Hey, that looks like a baby volcano cannon."

Points wise -

New super Knights are both in the same kit, will cost around 670 points each.

Castellan and Valiant both have 4 1 shot missiles - s10 -4ap D6 dmg, IGNORES INVULNS

Shoulder cannons are essentially autocannons with d3 damage. 4d3 shots in total.

Valiant - Thundercoil harpoon - heavy 1, s16 -6ap, 2d6 dmg. Reroll hits vs vehicles and monsters +d3 mortal wounds if you cause any damage.

Valiant - Conflagration Cannon - 18" range, heavy 3, s6, -1ap, 2 dmg, autohits. But also says heavy 3, d6 dmg, so i think something has got mixed up here.

Castellan - Volcano Lance - range 80", heavy d6, s14, -4ap, 2d6 dmg.

Castellan - Plasma Decimator - range 40", heavy 2d6 plasma cannon.

28 wounds, s8, t8.

Yay, only one domnius kit needs to be bought

right babes, I'm all done with my updates and off to bed
so if any of you honeys fancies doing a release to update Harlequins that would be just fab :smile:
and pending @flakpanda and @Mad-Spy reviewing the SM Trait PR that can go in too...
in fact, I'll do a release now and they can figure it out between them

Holy crap it IS a baby volcano cannon
@Kohato it feels like that's pulled out of the middle of a more comprehensive leak/article. Is it? And if so, where'the whole thing? :) :) :)

The new super knight box is an auto-buy
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
May 27 2018 23:34
IT's from a dakka thread
The 2x knight box?
It's just renegade re-released
and here to stay, no longer limited.
OR you mean the Dominus, if so yes. verymuch yes.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
May 27 2018 23:35
Wait....Dominus?
Why's it called Dominus? The two variants it will make are Castellan and Valiant, right?
And...Dakka thread, huh? Got a link? I...really don't wanna dig around on Dakka LOL
