Okay...am I crazy, or are there magnet pockets built into the Armiger weapons??

And
I can't decide to gloss up the gray or satin down the purple

gloss up the grey imo, make is shiny and distracting!
also, the trim on the shoulderpads looks amazing (as does the purple in general, too)
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 07:14
Gloss the grey, this knight is just out of refit, so it should be bright and shiny and new :smile:
And @WindstormSCR thanks for the tip, looks like I need to find some mk iii/iv sprues either from forgeworld direct, or from ebay :+1:

Jun 27 2018 08:46
the purple is gorgeous, change everything else to fit it =)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 10:40
@FarseerVeraenthis yeah, the mk IVs plastics are the best ones, but you only really want the chain and power sword bits
but at ebay bits costs you might as well go for the FW ccw weapon set

@Mad-Spy why @alphalas on Tau bug? :D
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jun 27 2018 11:27
Because my brain has stopped working?
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 27 2018 11:28
Well, you can still type, so it's not that bad :P
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jun 27 2018 11:29
the typing is just reflex now. My brain no longer needs to be working to do it
Joe Beddoe

Jun 27 2018 13:36
Thanks for the suggestions y'all. I...don't think...I can pull off making the top purple or not. I can do it on my second Armiger. I'll try to do that today and see what happens...if I pull it off on the not-fully-assembed one I'll give it a try on this one. If that doesn't work out I'll just sating up the top and plates.

@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 14:02
maybe purble is too much, would a metallic colour fit in better?
they are kind of reflective, but not as intensive and could be contrasty, but still samey?
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jun 27 2018 14:37
maybe somethink to break up the top like a chevron/line/cross of something
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 15:56
well
that's that.
tekton
@tekton
Jun 27 2018 17:13
@Thairne what's what?
i'm home sick from work today, one of my neighbors (who works from home) came over and we got a 40k game in this morning- Knights + Deathwatch is better than I thought it would be!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 17:17
it's because knights bring what DW lack, and provide a "distraction carnifex" that helps keep landraiders and such alive
tekton
@tekton
Jun 27 2018 17:18
assault style primaris intercessors also just generally caught his eldar off guard, next game he's bringing the dark kin and i'm assuming it will be a much different game :P but for today, that was fun
though this does make me want to get one more regular knight and go knights + admech even more
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 18:25
Germany is out of the world cup. SHameful display, historical shame.
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Jun 27 2018 18:32
And in a really poor style. To go from Champion to group-drop-out... Still, previous matches were played better than what polish team showed, which was a complete, devastating failure in every single game element... :< It's a really weird, unpredictable cup.
For Europe at least there's hope in Croatia and England, they're pretty strong. :soccer:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 18:35
well this cup is over for me, I can hardly muster any enthusiasm if "we" play, but being last in group as the champion... that hurts. I dont think we ever failed to reach the k.o. round EVER... we did a lil better than poland, but does it really matter? Not only last, but OUT of the cup, it cant get any worse.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 19:07
Oh it could be worse.
The entire club could get hijacked to Siberia.
I know, never very likely...but it could be worse lol
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 27 2018 19:11
Or you know ...
You could be the US
and not even qualify
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 19:23
This ^^^^^
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 19:30
that actually is to be expected :P
but soccer is.. kinda big over here, ya know... and not making it to the KO stage the first time in history.. is bad
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 27 2018 19:32
Is it though? We qualified every WC from 1990 til now. I mean, we've never made it past Round of 16 but hey, we were always there! :p
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 19:32
yes, yes it is.
Especially after loosing ti MEXICO and SOUTH FUCKING KOREA
but well.. what did I expect? Germany doesn't win in Russia. Its tradition.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Jun 27 2018 19:40
It really is
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jun 27 2018 19:41
in the summer to boot.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 20:55
yeah, and I mean, South Korea are a quality team aren't they...
it was always going to be a tough match...
:tongue:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 20:56
welp
decided to go with a castellan instead of the renegade box
because it is everything my DW need for the right points with 2 armigers
massive heavy anti-tank, durable, and a good fire magnet to pull stuff away from my landraiders and transports so they can do things more effectively
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:01
looks up Knight Castellan - WOW! that is a LOT of guns...!
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 21:02
Eh
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:03
I'm running house raven, so I'll be able to use the meltas reasonably effectively as well
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 21:03
I'd call it a barely adequate number of guns
I know this is gonna sound...well, I don't know how, exactly, but...
I found the baby volcano cannon very underwhelming
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:06
its swingy
that's the real problem with it
really should have had the neutron laser's proven setup, where it does XD6 with a minimum value
again, not as bothered because I'll be running house raven, so rerolling every roll of 1 for variable shots, hits, wounds, damage.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:08
ok, I mean, it sure LOOK like it has a lot of guns
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:15
it might very well be that I've lost perspective after spending several hours highlighting red...
but Knights sound and look scary
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:16
they can be, but they're also very vulnerable to multiple damage effects that can punch through in quantity
stuff like autocannons with 2 damage str 7-8 shooting in volume scare them
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:17
:+1:
I'm playing my pure Deathwatch army against my friend's Ultramarines on Friday
I'm still trying to decide what to bring, I think he's going to play a standard gunline, so I'm thinking of T2 deep strike a large veteran squad "up close 'n' personal" and blast him with frag cannons galore
along with my fluffy 2 x Corvus - because they're painted and fun to play with, even if they're not super effective as transports
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 21:22
"standard gunline" is pretty much the only viable way to play Ultras, sadly
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:29
@FarseerVeraenthis don't bother DSing frags
put them in durable transports
only thing worth DSing are primaris bolt rifles and stormbolters
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:29
yeah, that's the problem... what do you consider a durable transport?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:30
LR crusader, bring a distraction unit
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:30
yeah, I've not build my LRC yet
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:30
time to get on that
single best codex transport for DW
one has become a list staple if I'm not using my stormeagle
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:31
I thought it would be, hence why I got one in the first place :smile:
but at the moment I am painting, not building, so I'll finish the dudes I'm working on an then get to it
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:39
anyways, I'll come up with something :smile:
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 21:42
waaaaaaitasecond
Are you telling the the LRC is actually a good transport? Insanity!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 21:48
it is for DW vets because they gain so much from an embedded terminator via wound allocation shenanigans, and terminator storm bolters actually being worth taking
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jun 27 2018 21:56
little issue for Deathwatch, #3315 I'm off to bed, otherwise I'd fix it myself :smile:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 22:02
hmmm
not sure where that one came from
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 22:03
Oh hey, I forgot to share these
Imperial Knights Reference.pdf
Imperial Knights Refernce 2.pdf
I haven't added all the relics to it, and there are some strats that I didn't add because I find them useless LOL
But it makes it easier to do a side-by-side comparison for when you're trying to figure out what allegiance/house/WLT/relics to take
Plus makes a handy in-game reference. Suitable for printing! :smile:

@WindstormSCR we did another game, Raven Warden + Full Tilt was brutal against the dark eldar :P
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jun 27 2018 22:56
yep
raven valiant is what thier nightmares are made of
because auto-hitting str 7 means dead transports and anything else that relies on -1 to hitr
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 23:21
How did Full Tilt not get Vect'd?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Jun 27 2018 23:32
@Thairne
I'm so sorry.
So sorry.

Vect is once a phase
tekton
@tekton
Jun 27 2018 23:35
he might have been out of CP, i don't actually remember right now to be honest, but i know it was used before that and i smirked when i got to use full tilt finally
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 23:38
Well done sir
Feels good, don't it? :)
tekton
@tekton
Jun 27 2018 23:38
very, very much
one of my employees at work is a dark eldar player...we haven't played since the codex came out due to how busy we've all been, but looking forward to that some more...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jun 27 2018 23:39
The best is when you Full Tilt into something, murder it, (if playing Terryn) consolidate into something else, Glory in Honour to fight again, then Death Grip something with the Paragon Gauntlet
It's the triple crown!
tekton
@tekton
Jun 27 2018 23:56
heh, will have to try for that one day
