I was a little sad DoS2 wasn’t paced better...
@Thairne that does look pretty awesome

decal by etsy ;)
I'm glad I redid the trays, these look way better. And I wager with 2 of these I can fit 2k of admech on it, so I'm pretty happy so far

@Thairne while that's pretty impressive, it's less so when you realize it's just a stencil with a fade -- I won't call it trivial, but it's way eaiser to do with an airbrush
Especially with a stencil
Also, Divinity Original Sin 2 ate my life for a hot minute. It's good shit.

@FarseerVeraenthis this is where I make you sad, remind you that librarians in terminator can take them via index, and also any model that has combat shield access can, which afaik includes the regular chaplain too
:P
it is a decent relic pickup along with the 6+ FnP trait if you value max durability
anyone with a printer want my STL files for some movement trays I’m cooking up?
doing something a little different, the retaining edges are only half rings, but match the angle on GW bases so once they slide in its held in there like a dovetail joint
staggered for close-pack 5man setups

Oh...me!
do they have allowance for basing material on top?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 06:58
yes, only come halfway up the base
I’ve got 3 with slightly different tolerances and angles I’ll be printing tomorrow
once its working well I’ll link the file
the general idea is to be as minimalist as possible, and ideally picking up one model allows you to move the set instead of sliding them
Since my biggest gripe with movement trays is models overbalancing and stuff

My solution was a tab extended out from one of the bases of the try itself

you have to have a storm shield

Chaplain has limited wargear swap, not the whole list... so he can't either
I don't know why Deathwatch Libraians are prevented from Storm Shield access... but then, see @CrusherJoe 's "GW Rules room" meme
movement bases sound... interesting - how close will they be??
also, I do like the case @Thairne it is VERY red..!!
and thanks for the detail @Kohato, I have to get paid before I ask for the actual code...!

@FarseerVeraenthis except they then made precedent in one of the FAQs that index adjuster lists were no longer valid because of an example for the IG codex :D
specifically, commissars!

oh look, it's this discussion again
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:29
but anyway, that's just a difference I have in interpretation vs some here
GenWilhelm @GenWilhelm grabs popcorn
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:30
we can agree to disagree and its muddy as fuck so until GW writes something clearer it just got left as the more inclusive of the two
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 18 2018 20:30
tbh, I actually haven't kpet up with the outcome of that - I lost interest
so it is very possible I was wrong
/ am wrong
:smile:

the interpretation i go with is "if it was legal before the codex, it should still be legal with the codex"

I was only quickly checking last night the models I have and the options and possibilities and I quickly ran out of time
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:31
that's the basic starting prototype to make sure my measures are correct
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Nov 18 2018 20:31
since that seems to be GW's intent
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:32
once it's printing correctly and doesn't snap off when I'm separating it from the raft, I'll be doing the cuts and locking angles
but its very close packed

super, movement trays look good, and I might have a libby in terminator armour - tbh, the relic would be extra helpful in that instance since the libby doesn't normally have an invul
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:32
~1mm gap between the outer edges of each base
@FarseerVeraenthis he has the terminator invul, so no change, but it helps to keep him alive to psychic hood things or get stuck in with his force weapon
base librarian still can't take a storm or combat shield, which is ass because they could in the 7e codex :(
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 18 2018 20:34
yeah, it is all a little silly
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 18 2018 20:34
and annoys me because my coolest librarian pose is force sword and SS using a bunch of GK/Sternguard/DW parts
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Nov 18 2018 20:35
probably GW would fluff it out by saying that the libby's force hood and weapon "take up too much suit power to allow running a storm shield as well"
which still seems like a cop out

That's the minimalist trays I've made and posted on thingiverse

I dug out some old metal terminators from about the dawn of time (maybe '96, or earlier...?) that I've had kicking around
managed to find a couple of terminator librarians
but moulded metal shoulder pads would mean no deathwatch pad for them
and I'd need a right terminator arm to make one of them have a storm shield - something I don't have in my bits box and don't feel confident that I could conjure up for Sunday - so I just need to get on and paint the dude I already have!!
@CrusherJoe does that not cause trouble with positioning??
