  1. I live in South Korea, we haven't been under any official lock down, but the schools have been closed for the past month, so subsequently I've not been working and my 4 year old daughter has been home. Despite 'not doing anything' and living Groundhog Day, I've never been more busy keeping her entertained for every waking minute. I've managed to cut out 4 blood bowl teams and build them on the rare days she goes to her grans. Got a chance to base coat them today, first I've had in 2 weeks. Base coated them white because I want to try contrast, felt very weird after years of black.
  2. Yeah, I largely argree, I don't think they look good, it's been putting me off trying them, but that's why I asked about it on here, I was hoping after 8 months people had worked out how to make them look good. I suppose I wouldn't bother buying them now, but I bought a load so I should try them, and I would like to paint faster. I'm not the slowest painter nor the fastest, my main problem (other than finding time between work and family) is I get bored with painting the same paint scheme after about 6 models and the last ones just become a chore and the quality slips a bit as I lose interest in it and just want to get it finished. I plan on painting like I normally do, but if I can speed up aspects like; cloaks, trousers, skin, skulls and other mandatory skeletal stuff that is on everything then it would help me a long. At the same time I don't want it to be the 'one thick coat' out of the pot. Now knowing how to mix and blend it helps with that. And as I'm sure others have, I have a mountain of models sitting on sprues and no where near being painted.
  3. Finally got a chance to watch that video, that was exactly what I was looking for, learnt a lot from that. Thanks for the other replies too.
  4. Hi, it's been a while now since contrast was released. I bought some on release and have only used it very occasionally as a wash for certain things, skulls being the main thing (I'm so tired of skulls on every model, painting them just drives me nuts). Anyway my next paining project will probably be Blackstone Fortress or Talisman 3rd edition. I want to use contrast for the project but I haven't had much practice with it. So has anyone got any advice, tips, tutorials? There are a lot on youtube, but they are all from around release, and I'm hoping for experienced tips, what people have found after over half a year of using it. I'll most likely not be solely using contrast and I probably won't be doing the one thick coat approach from the GW vidoes. Thanks
  5. The AOS boxes are going online only so this is my last chance to buy them from my flgs. I already own the cards, I got them from a bit site when the AOS boxes were released with the idea of buying them later. £80 is a lot for a game I haven't played yet and most likely will only use just over half the models though. I'll just take a hit on those cards, they weren't that much. One box seems fine for me. Thanks for the help.
  6. How realistic is it to use all of the models in the second box? Or do you only end up using about half of it?
  7. Hi, I haven't played a game of this yet, but I am wondering how necessary second boxes of the core Warbands are to play a campaign with? Can you get by with 1 or do you really need to get a second? The Warbands I'm interested in are the Splintered Fang and Corvus Cabal. Thanks.
  8. Awesome, from looking at the map you appear to be a brief walk from my mates house so that is a bonus, and a bit of a random coincidence.
  9. I will be back home in the North East over Christmas for the first time in years. I am wondering what independent shops there are in Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Darlington and Middlesbrough. I might take advantage of the large discounts that aren't normally available to me. Thanks. Just noticed the store finder on the GW site has independents, still any recommendations?
  10. I don't think so, these are AOS boxes not War Cry. There isn't much point in including the cards for a different game system. I wonder how long they will stick around.
  11. Double models with a discount then.
  12. Well, from what only says '14th December, Warband name, then $65 dollars, we can't tell much. However with some inference and good old dose of wild speculation we can make some guesses. First thing is they don't say 'warcry' before the listing, although other entries also don't state the game system. The list does appear to be in game system order though and they are sandwiched between the Slaves To Darkness releases and some AOS Terrain. There is a new Warcry book listed after this. This suggests that they are part of the Slaves to Darkness release. I also don't think that it is a price rise. I agree with @passtheKhorneplease that if it were more sprues it would indeed look odd. I like the idea @Moldek has about the Killteam style release with terrain, the price seems about right. If it is part of the Slaves to Darkness release though then it may be a double set minus the cards, comparing a warband price to similar things like a Necromunda Gang, $42, what were the cards $8? that would be about right and make them $50. Could be double limited time Christmas set minus the cards, the Chrimbo boxes are on sale the week before after all. Could be 2 extra sprues instead of 3, I don't know the sprue composition well enough, are the leader and special fighters on their own sprue, or are the mixed up with the others, and is it different for every warband? I have no idea, my gut feeling is they are for Slaves to Darkness, I have no idea in what form they will turn up though.
  13. Since I started this thread there has been 3 box set releases with eye watering prices, Feast of Bones, Necromunda Uprising and this Sister of Battle Army, (I have no interest in Sisters, but making a limited quantity boxed release, especially after 2 years worth of blogs following it, and the years of 'plastic sisters' comments, and then advertising when to get online to pre order it so you don't miss out, why make that box set limited? At least give it a decent run before it's broken down into separate units. What a reward for all your waiting. In Bird Culture that is considered a D... ...) Anyway for me, all 3 have left the realm of reality in price and gone off to crazy land. I can afford these things, I could have bought all 3 if I wished, but it's like GW are trying to outdo themselves each week with the next insanely priced release. Some recent examples include the Underworlds Beastgrave Gift Set, Champions of Dreafane Collection, the two new 40k Start Collecting boxes taken from Shadowspear, which means the Shadowspear box had a saving of $15, the Tooth and Claw box set from last year was $195 saving. We can try and justify this to ourselves anyway we want, we can compare it to other hobbies, we can compare it to eating out at restaurants, we can talk about the production costs and the prices of injection molding, we can even claim that these things are 'great value' if we bought them separately, but the cost of them separately is so inflated anyway that it shows how brainwashed we are. But we are still buying it, the Sisters box sold out, so did the Feast of Bones and I've seen people being delighted with the Necromunda one. Sorry I'm not sure where I'm going with this, I've just been scratching my head a lot over the last couple of months when the new releases come out and this weekend has been no exception, I'm not rage quitting or anything, but I'm certainly not spending anything at the moment.
  14. Sorry of this has been covered before, I couldn't see anything though. From looking through the leaked release schedule and price list for November and December that has been floating around for a few weeks, there are the War Cry warbands listed as a release for 14th December with a U.S price of $65. So far that leak has been spot on with release, date and price so it looks legit. Does anyone know what this is? At face value it looks like a straight up $15 price increase, which with current GW pricing would not surprise me, but it is the same release week as the Slaves To Darkness Battletome which makes me wonder if they are a rebox without the cards and more models. What do people think?
  15. This has wandered wildly off topic, but I found this interesting. https://magalparts.com/why-are-injection-molds-so-expensive/ I still don't understand how that Land Raider mold cost £100,000, I'd really like to see a cost breakdown, just so I can understand it. That is a lot of money, you can buy a house for that. I am assuming the price of mold production for GW must have gone down in the 10-15 years since that article was printed, and when they tool a mold they probably have a number of different kits cut into the same piece of steel. They cram so much into a single sprue nowadays, they must be maximising as much of the mold as physically possible, you can tell the age of a kit just by looking at how much space is between bits. Anyway this should be in another thread if it is interesting enough to carry on with.
