@Kohato are we excited at the new Necron hotness? I'm kinda giddy, but hoping they don't put the physical cost too high .. I want my first forgeworld cheese to be in budget

@FarseerVeraenthis it's more a "Set of Guidelines" put in place by a higher power with the sole purpose of curtailing my hobby fun! ... bitch

@sk_Father_Price_twitter I’m fully expecting it to be $300+ usd
So about £200+
Sorry £180+
Still
Expecting nuttiness on price

yuck, I can get FOUR Tomb stalkers for that ...or 8 square feet of resin redundancy that is the tomb world
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Sep 25 2018 13:16
That’s based on the prices of comparably sized SHVs from FW

120GBP I'm guessing.
Seems bigger than the tesseract ark - that's 64 gbp.
but not as big as an IK
A pylon is 110 - so maybe that.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Sep 25 2018 15:01
I’m pretty sure it’s IK+ sized @Kohato
Iirc from WHO day it’s massive
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 25 2018 15:10
oh really?
Iiiiinteresting
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 25 2018 15:16
Necron IK then, I'm happy. And I hear Orks are getting one too
So yeah $300 usd easy
That’s a lot of resin
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 25 2018 15:22
oh wow - yea it is
they could cut costs a bit by packaging stalker legs.
THe back ones look the size

also, airbush update: got some "magic fluid" (otherwise known as vallejo flow improver), upped my pressure and played with the dilution ratio and everything is better :smile: I managed to get about 15 dudes based and 5 undercoated in a couple of hours (including setup and tidy up time) which is much better than before. I did notice that there is quite a difference in consistency between Mournfang Brown and Abbadon Black though - something to bear in mind for the future!
so, thank you to everyone who shared some airbrush tips and advice :cupid: you guys!!
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:02
it really does help with needle dry up and clogging
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:03
yeah, I mean, that still happened a little, but only after spraying for aaaaagggeeesss!!
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:03
doesnt help with being clumsy and stupid tho, so I still fuck up :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:03
well, if I can do my basecoats that'll be groovy
anything more than that is in the mists of the future...
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:04
even I can do some basic highlighting.. its not that tough tbh :P
45° angle, 90° angle, done.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:04
is it really that easy???
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:04
basic cenital highlighting and saves you the pain of edge highlights which I hate with a passion
on infantry? yes
you ofc can get waaaayyyy more fancy than that, but thats the basic zenital highlighting technique
you basically simulate high noon lighting with that
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:06
googles zenital highlighting technique
Jon Kissinger

Pay close attention to the Vince venturella vids
@CrusherJoe turned me onto him
His early videos had shit audio quality but the content was gold

I seriously need to pick up a brush again... but since my only playfriend was infected by DAD and the local community being a bunch of assholes I kind of lost the drive..
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:13
thanks for the tip @alphalas and @Thairne that kinda thing can put you on a bummer
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:14
you're welcome ^^
Always try new techniques, I got my mind blown when I did wetblending on the rocket exhausts of devastators and it turned out pretty nice
still scared of wetblending, but willing to give it a try
on small models.
That can be stripped easily.
and which i fucked up already.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:24
heheheh
I stripping models
so by extension I hate making mistakes
which makes it hard for me to get too wild
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:25

try it on a single infantry model?
I once fucked up a land raider.
Tried stripping it.
Ended up throwing it away.

So there's that :P

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:28
wow, that's some screw up..
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:29
dont remind me of the times when I was almost done with an iron strider, airbrush highlighting that thing, having almost everything blocked in, just the white on the admech symbol...
picked it up, painted the white, put it down.. noticed white fingerprints on the entire thing from some spill on the bottle.
it ended up being thrown at a wall.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:35
ouch
I'll try not to remind you :smile:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:37
eh.
well you tried :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis

:wink:
my worst hobby mistake so far (and I might be able to rescue it yet...)
was deciding to make a Wave Serpent by widening a Falcon
basically, I chopped up a brand new falcon hull in two so that I could widen it - it is still in bits waiting for the next stage of development...
(that was about 15 years ago...)
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:42
And I was like
"yep... thats ambitious.. but not that bad unless you fuck it really really up... ok, so you didnt get to it yet... oh"
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:45
yeah, when I have another attack of "brave" and it doesn't get diverted somewhere else I'll get it built - and it will probably look like sh!t, and then I'll just use it for scenery and buy the GW one
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:46
which, tbh, is the most likely scenario :P
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:47
although, I still rail against the "STC" approach to Eldar vehicles... according to the lore they are sung together out of wraithbones - surely every single one would be different
and yes, that is most likely - hence why I've postponed that disappointment
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:47
but if you sing something, you stick to what is proven to be effective
lest you endanger eldar lifes
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 20:47
"out of sight, out of mind" :wink:
yeah, but surely the bonesingers would have gotten a bit bored
put on a tape
done something else?
a little flair here and there
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 25 2018 20:48
sing a serpent
sing a wraith construct
sing a phantom
different things to sing on a standard compact disc
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis

heheheh! Eldar production line = CD player + 3d printer

@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 21:22
Yes.
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 21:22
yeah... also, that ball shouldn't be IN the joint I'm guessing...!
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 21:22
And WHEN did I notice it?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Sep 25 2018 21:22
Lemme guess, plastic glue?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 21:23
after everything else was glued together
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 25 2018 21:23
whoops!!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 21:23
looks fixable
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 21:23
As in, literally every other fucking component of the legs.
So...how to fix? The little shaft is too short, and the ball is too small
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Sep 25 2018 21:25
Did you use plastic glue or superglue?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 21:25
but yeah, @FarseerVeraenthis van saar with the FW upgrade shield/weapon sets, make an interrogator (inquisitor) for when I don't fancy using solomon lok

Superglue. I'm not some kind of model glue heathen...geebuz
Well yes
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 21:26
plus the plate covers

Freeze it
Pop it back apart and fix
Or be super fancy and get superglue debonder

That's a part that I designed in Fusion 360, then 3D printed
WindstormSCR

there is no new pic?

No that pic WAS the new pic
There it is again
The shaft and ball are what I designed in Fusion 360 then printed on my Ender 3
In other words, that's the replacement part that I materialized out of thin air with the magic of 3D printing and 3D CAD software
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Sep 25 2018 22:12
So what you’re saying is you printed it fucked?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 25 2018 22:24
Freeze it
Pop it
Reprint it
:D
Also, I am not a heathen. I simply don't make mistakes when modelling :p
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 25 2018 22:31
And when I do, I improvise :p
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 22:51
....
NO
it's not fucked
it's the right size and in the right position
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 23:10
that's what I said when you first posted it, that it looked fine
so my current deathwatch dilemma
is
chap dread (BA dread converted), more terminators, or a vansaar/escher converted =][= detach for flavor?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 23:17
Dread
For style if nothing else.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 23:18
the idea was to use a dreadknight hammer end on the librarian halberd arm, giving the look of a giant crozius
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 25 2018 23:18
Oh I like that idea very, VERY much
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 25 2018 23:26
alternately using parts of that but trying to find a wing peice from a terrain bit that looks the part of the crozius head
