  1. Played a practice game at the club tonight. With the agendas. He had "kill more Battleline units than you lose" We wiped out all 3 of each others, but I summoned an extra unit of Skellies that he also killed. Does that count? They are a Battleline unit, but weren't part of my Battleline requirement in my list. We couldn't work out if he'd got his agenda or not. Super excited for Saturday! Not long now!

  4. It's an issue of White Dwarf from when that Model was released so probably about 2012?
  5. I've used that guide to paint all buildings I've done. Including the Fortified Manor, can't go wrong with it. Just use a conversion chart on the colours.
  6. Thanks! Yeah I bought one the got one with WD then someone gave me theirs! Something needed doing with it.
  7. 'Ivan Dracoth' Vampire Lord for my new Death Army
  8. I agree, the newer bigger AoS bases require 3mm magnets. I'd buy 2mm and 3mm, then you're sorted. I always use epoxy to glue the magnets to the bases. Always the first thing I do with a new kit. Grab a metal tray, put the bases on upside down, blob a bit of epoxy and plop the magnet down. The metal tray will mean the magnet will pull nice and flat on the base and not try to fly off to the next base you're doing.. Had that happen before! Super glue or milliput or green stuff works, but always comes loose in the end I'm my experience, best to do it right from the start. Poundland do epoxy (for a pound belive it or not) and it's great. Make sure it's Poundlamd though, the other pound shops do some but it's ****** and smells like death.
  9. List's submitted! Gonna spend the night working on tokens to remind me what the hell is going on! Ben: I forgot to say on my email, I've paid for 2000 (Mr Hobgoblin paid for it) and 500. I'm waiting for money to show up in my PayPal to pay for 1000, should get that to you tomorrow.
  10. I'd love to be on Bottomcam, alas I'm sure they'll just cover table 1
  11. Warchanter "Rawk da Kasbah" Painted for my Army
  12. Hazmat Gutspilla Ascendant - A reincarnation of my Warboss for AoS, Any resemblance to any other Warboss (living or dead) is purely coincidental.
  13. OK thanks chaps! That makes sense but yeah it does mean my plan isn't viable, so back to 2 shamans I guess! I'll get it off eventually this I vow!
  14. Now that the Balewind is pointed and not frowned upon so much I was thinking of taking it my Destruction list to Blood & Glory. The list I've been playing is based around getting Foot of Gork off, I'd love to come back with some great stories of it stomping things to death. So far I've been running 2 shamans surrounded by boyz (+2 to cast), but it's just not working. At first I had 2 attempts to get it off per turn, but no longer. I haven't managed to get it to go off for the last 5 games! So I was thinking of dropping the 2nd Shaman and paying for the Balewind. +2 from the boyz and +1 from the Balewind should improve my chances. Would now cast on 7+. However, my boyz can't be within 3" of the Balewind so I'm gonna struggle to get them in, they have to be within 10" of the Shaman when he casts. Would I measure this? From the base of the Balewind (that's not too bad) or from the Shaman model himself? if so, diagonally? Along and up? (that would make it not worth using for this plan). This also raises the question, when casting a spell from on top of the Balewind, would you measure from the shaman model of the base of the Balewind? Less worried about this, but I guess the same answer should apply to both yes? I'm mainly interested in running this for Blood & Glory so I guess if it's not clear, it's however Ben thinks it should be.. Ta!

    Thanks! We'll they're lovely
  16. I think it's self promotion. Wants a job at GW. He's made a hell of a name for himself with this, weather that'll help or hinder his ambition is a gamble.. There's no way he'd have got this exposure just posting fan art in a blog. Lots probably do that and and I haven't seen any of it. If he'd done the box mockup and said it was fan made somewhere, it would have still probably hit all the rumour mills anyway and he'd be morally in the clear.

    Beautiful collection of wizards! Congrats! This is something I've always wanted to do but never got around to. This is great inspiration.
  18. Is there and official hastag for Blood & Glory? Would be good to see everyone's preparations in the same place? I noticed last years was #B&G15 but it doesn't look like it works with a & in it!
  19. Congrats! Well deserved! I managed a Gold Medal too! We did well to beat the 40k stuff! You planning next year's already?
  20. Great job! It's heart warming to see the Reik still flowing! Good luck tomorrow! Let us know how out get on.

    Brutes finished for my army.
  22. Super excited about this! I'll be there, can always bring a mat and scenery too. Plenty of us at Hobgoblin Club will be making this a regular night so that's a good start! Hopefully it'll grow into THE club of the North!
  23. I thought the same thing when looking at this battle plan.. Split into 2 and pretty much fight 2 separate battles. But you'd have to win both decisively no? Fair enough if you can look at your opponent's list and know what's going to happen, but I'm a long way from that. Thats why I decided on a strong core in the middle and two hard hitting flanks, hoping to smash through the objectives and grab early victory and use the core to fix what didn't go to plan. Kinda almost worked! I'll be following this with interest, being an aspiring tournament player, it'd be great to have even a basic idea about how to approach each scenario without having to play all of them several times over.. Which would take me a year probably!
  24. It was David Soper who tipped me that priming wasn't necessary over plastic. His models are some of the best in the world so I figured I'd give it a try. Here's his WIP megaboss painted directly onto plastic. Pretty good eh? I've only tried with a couple of models so far and it seems to be fine. As for the colours, a grey primes is a good start for any, so the grey of the plastic should be just as good. One of the recent models I did without primer was the Stardrake. Colors are great and I really can't see a problem with paint coming off, but without playing with the model for years I guess that's impossible to say for sure. I'd say give it a go and see for yourself. If you prefer a primer go for it. If I can forgo it, it'll same me a lot of time and money in the future!
