Alright final batch of magnets for IK and Admech purchased :D
Went overboard and got like 250 3x1.5mm for everyone's bases too, gonna make a magnet carry.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:12
it really is the best way to go
@DrTobogganMD which army?
besides IK
if they're not taller than agressors, get yourself a walker's shortbread assortment tin, enjoy them, then use the box (they're made of steel, so magnetic)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 01:13
Admech and Crons
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:14
yeah, can even fit kastelans in the taller box
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 01:14
Oh nice
I shall try that ty :D
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:14
plus you get to eat the cookies
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 01:14
Can Confirm. Am Fat. Would enjoy this plan.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:16
bonus plan: go to walmart/other big box, get a plastic bin that holds 2-4 of them stacked together
with some wiggle room for books+dice+bits

I'm currently using 3-tier plastic drawers from target
which has lead to more than 1 repair due to no mags :p
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:18
the metal boxes inside a bigger plastic one is like foam sets, only without the fiddling
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 01:19
Yea that's not a bad idea. Keep separate tins for various units.
I used to have dreams of making a nice display board to hold them - but I'll settle for cookie tins :p
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 01:20
the displayboard idea sounds nice, but it really doesn't work as well as it seems in theory
I have one, but you need to space things out and they just don't have the weather protection, etc
the cookie tins might not be pretty, but they keep them safe very well
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 01:21
Safe > purdy.
I don't have glass cases, so tins and drawers work fine
I'm tired of repairing sword arms and heads all the damn time
I do that enough when I drop them while handeling in games.

the way I do it:
  • go to craft store
    • get bawks
    • measure inside of bawks
    • order custom cut wood sheets from said craft store (cents)
    • order custom cut steel sheets from said craft store (most expensive part)
    • glue together
    • mount cheap furniture handles
    • laquer for optics
    • mount some feet to stack the trays
    • enjoy
just got a new bawks... I think its 60x40x32, to fit more stuff. Old Bawks is good for like 1000 pts

distant reeeeing
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:03
She's got more abs than a space malerine
Dunno if it's the angle of the shot but it looks like she's sucking in her stomach armor somehow. or maybe the belt buckle just makes it seem like she's in permanent pelvic thrust mode
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 01 13:04
i was also wondering why they sculpted abs onto her power armour
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:04
blood angels.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 01 13:04
yeah, was about to mention dante's power nipples
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:05
whoever made it wanted to make sure you knew she's BUFF
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:05
strong, independent woman that needs no man!
Karen.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:05
Yes, Karen.
Fucking Karen.
"Oop, Nids are back." "God dammit Karen!"
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:06
"Sir, Horus turned..."
"EMPEROR DAMNIT KAREN!"
An army of Necarens slowly awakening from their tomb world, demanding to speak to the manager...
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:08
Oh no, the horror
That's all the necrons really want in this galaxy
"Please, take these Nekarens"
"We don't want them"
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:09
send them to the EoT.
They either overthrow the chaos godmanagers or become more powerful than ever.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:10
I mean, is either a good thing
Then Karen is the new Chaos power
Or stronger than anything anyone can deal with.
Nids turn around. be like whelp fuck this galaxy, it's karen's now
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:11
what do you prefer...
A 14th black crusade
or someone demanding to speak to the High Lords, disabling them by sucking off their time and energy?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 01 13:13
nobody panic, but we currently have 0 issues
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:14
Shhhh.
Anon might here you....
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 13:14
Oo niec
Time to release then
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 13:15
get shwifty!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 13:39
Dunno If thats an official model or not, but from the sidebar it said something about greyfax. Also looks less like abs and more like Metroid/Samus style armor joints, which is a pretty decent style to follow tbh
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 01 13:39
it's got to be fake
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 13:42
yeah, looking more closely, it looks like its superimposed on a gathering storm page, with the greyfx/magnus sidebar
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 01 13:42
Yeah, the references to Cawl, Celestine and Greyfax in the sidebar point to it being a good fake
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 13:43
I’ll admit though, while the lore person in me would be horrified, I don’t actually hate the model, fake or otherwise
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 01 13:44
yeah, it's a nice clean look for a Sororitas
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 13:47
Could be personal bias, since I think the metroid series is a perfect choice of act to follow when dealing with strong women in power armor
(also Other M does not exist, to pretent otherwise is blasphemy)
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 16:26
god I was a dumbass when I magged this first IK.
Universal Polarity throughout the knight? wtf is that.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 16:41
made the same mistake between units and even models.
It really, really sucks balls.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 16:42
So, now that i'm getting an entire set of weapons (x3) magged, i'm ripping out old magnets and making things proper.
Every weapon will properly stick to every socket, regardless of if it should.
Arms will hold Icharus launchers because I can.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 01 16:45
watch the paintjob tho.
Blue Gun does not fit on Red Knight :P
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 16:47
That's why all knights are Teranis colors :p
well, will be ... when I paint them
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 18:14
Also, I laughably used 1/8 x 1/16" mags on the arms lol
Those will be upgraded.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 01 18:19
5/16"x1/16" discs fit in the arm rotary joint with no greenstuff needed
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 01 18:20
yepper :D
I have a bunch of 5/16 x 1/8 on the way
the fit all the way down to the slant and secure a bit better.
Then 1/4 x 1/8 for the armiger arms
and an absolute assload of 3x1.5mm for the carapace weapons and base bottoms.
