  1. *Ambushes you before you leave* Hello Peter, What's Happening? Um, I'm going to need you to come in tomorrow, so if you could be here around, 9... that would be greaaat, m'kay? *Begins to Walk Away, then turns around* Oh, oh, and I almost forgot. Uhhm, I'm also gonna need you to go ahead and come in, ah, on Sunday too, kay? We, ah, had Disciples of Tzeentch Battletome release too and ah, we need to sort of play catchup. Thaaanks.
  2. I don’t know why, and maybe it’s just Warmahordes and Guild Ball models (I haven’t done a GW metal model in forever) but from my experience, I found that washing the pieces in soap and water increased the ability to glue from 0% to 99% (there were still some joints that never glued). Think it has something to do with the mold process. Is it anything like any of the other Steven King TV series? IT was okay (the end of that book was weird anyway), but I’ve heard bad things about the rest.

  4. I would have agreed six months ago, but as someone who just got a Warhammer store, our game scene has grown exponentially, from like 3-5 active people at most to that as a minimum on weekends and as many as 20 during prime game time, which the FLGS never saw. That was 40K. AoS grew from 1 (me) to 4 active and about 10-12 who play. That’s a win in my opinion
  5. Fyreslayers and Hedonites: Both had rules that weren’t in the book but in White Dwarf instead Beasts of Chaos: Received a decent book at the time, but have never had a chance since. FEC and Daughters: One list to rule the meta, and in the darkness warp it. Skaven, Cities, Gloomspite: Should each be 3-5 separate Battletomes Otherwise, I’ve thought they’d been pretty good.
  6. Its one ability, on one model, not the entire army. Get off the cross, we need the wood.
  7. I don’t think it’s this. The Daemon Prince of Nurgle scroll isn’t separate from the new plastic model in the AoS app anymore.
  8. It has been a little over one week since I started the blog and 2020 hobby quest. So let's see what else I did. Painting the Brimstone Horrors knocked off 10 of 10 models for the first 9 days, so I'm not stressing about the painting goals. There will be bigger obstacles to come, I'm 100% sure of it (two ominous laughs). What you haven't seen that I have built/painted: 1. The aforementioned Rats from Carrion Empire that I built in the last post. 2. I completed the generic Chaos Spawn in a Red->Blue transition, and one of the three Flamers that I have in generic Flamer paint scheme (Talassar Blue and Fire Colors to start, I think I added a few greenish and purplish colors to add contrast): 3. 10 Blue Horrors and the other 2 Flamers. I put blue onto all of them, and three of the Blue Horrors currently sit complete. 4. A completed piece of Warcry Terrain that was a testing ground for what I wanted to use as my paint scheme: Prime semi-light Grey, Prime White from a 60 degree angle and upward. Stone in Basilicanum Grey, then Drybrush with Grey Seer (yes, I like the color for edges) Wood in Wyldwood, then Agrax Earthshade, Seraphim Sepia, and/or Gore-Grunta Fur to provide variation in wood planks. Metal grates in Balthasar Gold, then Nihilak Oxide In my humble opinion about the old sculpts, the eyes on most of them are tiny and really hard to paint. I thought the Screamers were hard, but the Chaos Spawn was a whole 'nut-er level of difficulty, and it was only two of them Happy Wargaming!
  9. Damn. All of those painted models are fantastic. How long did that take you? WOuld you be willing to commission an army for me?

    It looks very nice! Be sure to give it plenty of time to dry. Do you have a quick list of all the paints you used?
  11. Why is an army that gets it's posterior handed to it on a regular basis playing a player who is 4-0 on the last table of a tournament?
  12. There was a nice pattern of all four factions getting half a box's worth of release. The first three boxes were nice because with a Start Collecting set you then had a pretty sizable chunk of army to own and play with (besides Gloomspite which didn't have one, and OBR, which doesn't, but is a good start on its own). Aether War is a weird set. KO entirely overlaps it's SC and has no Arkanauts as True Battleline, or behemoths to fill a collection itch. The Tzeentch side with SC has a good fill of units, but the side in Aether War feels like it's missing a true Battleline as well. Tzaangors or Kairic Acolytes instead of Screamers would fill the set's hole nicely, but neither fit the "Sky War" narrative of the set. Maybe in conjunction with Arkanauts instead of the second set of Balloon Boys? Maybe I'm making hay over nothing. I have though we would get a soft edition reboot for Summer; So we get New Stormcast (whatever new chamber gets opened) vs a New Destruction faction. That would probably mean a Chaos vs Death set in the Fall, or a gap filler for Spring. If it was a gap filler, I'd say OBR vs Slaves with the teased book coming out, but we just had OBR, and Slaves just got a SC with new stuff. I will say my local store manager said that two player box sets were something they wanted to emphasize this year. He doesn't strike me as someone who has any sort of inside track, but if he was really getting this from GW management, I like the prospect. I almost entirely buy these boxes these days.
  13. #5 on my list is do the Plog/Blog Thing. I don't really know why more people aren't taking advantage of it here. I mentioned a few other things during the new years post, like build the things, paint 400 things, and avoid spending too much (although I have fallen face first into the DoT release and I am hoping it sticks for the rest of the year).
  14. The Azyrite Ruined Chapel has the Bell and one set of steps for a cheaper price than a new starter box. Plastic Glue or CA? If it's the latter, you might be able to pull apart without too much trouble (there's still cleanup)
  15. Nice job on the Marauders. Can't wait to see what you do with the Furies, Warriors, and Knights.
