  1. Today's rumour engine is definitely giving out NH vibes (please be a new monster, please be a new monster).
  2. Nice one - thanks. I was kinda thinking along the same lines... but I've no Tauralon and Libs would be Vindictors.
  3. I've been chopping and changing to get a list that works with this - do you remember what the rest of the list included? Thanks in advance.
  4. Thanks for the responses everyone. I'll just ignore the error message.
  5. To those who use the app, does anyone know how to get rid of this error message? I've tried multiple hosts but it's always the same message... can't seem to figure it out.
  6. Makes perfect sense. Thanks for this.
  7. Just wondering, is there ever a reason to take staves? I know they're more damage but with less attacks and no rend... what am I missing?
  8. First time running evocats last night. Ran 3 backed up with a LA on dracoline up the right flank. I was pleasantly surprised with how hard they hit. They killed a full health mega gargant in 2 rounds of combat and secured an objective in the enemies turf. I'm definitely looking at them in a new light this morning.
  9. Kids recently started back at nursery... first time since the pandemic. Needless to say the whole house has been very ill for about two weeks. Was able to start up again this week though so thought I'd post an update. Managed to block out all black sections with Abaddon Black. This was mainly the guns for the Longstrike and the reverse of the shields. Both can be seen in the pics. Also made a good start with the first coat of red. I chose Mephiston Red for both the red fabric and also the red leather. This stage is both good and bad: good as you can really just whack the paint on and you don't have to be super neat, bad as the models really don't look too grand at this stage and you have to keep in mind the end goal. I started for the red with the Longstrike and the Sequitors as they have by far the most red on them. My Thunderstrike stuff should be a doddle once I get another coat on the older stuff. I'm just really happy to start getting some colour on these bad lads. I've also been thinking about how soon I can get these to tabletop standard. With the new book (I think it's mint - love it) out I'm really eager to actually play with the new stuff. I've a tourney in Scotland in November so my aim is to get them to tabletop standard for that. Nothing quite like a tourney to really get you motivated.
  10. I instantly thought that as well but then I thought maybe it could be some kind of plant life? Also, there's a dude's foot at the top left which implies, whatever it is, it's far from incorporeal.
  11. That's actually a really good point... I never saw it as that but it does say add 1 to the save roll. I kinda just assumed it said, those with shields have a 3+ save.
  12. Love lists like this. I always seem to gravitate towards KE now. Protectors are just nuts at the minute. Been playing around trying to fit 15 in. I also normally try to slot in 6 Longstrike because of obvious reasons. As someone who moved over from Death to SCE just before the new edition, this kind of elite playstyle is exactly what I was hoping to see. Very happy with the new book because of this.
  13. Just unlocked the tome in the app. It's actually pretty useful.
  14. A lot of things people are saying about the tome reminds me of what people were saying when the Soulblight book came out. Personally I thought that was a good book and I think so is the new SCE tome.
  15. Aye, I've watched a fair few reviews - very excited for my copy to arrive Saturday. Just wanted access to screenshots so that I could peruse at my leisure, on the toilet and whatnot. On that note, I've been thinking about this release. The rules and warscrolls aren't leaks. Once the influencers have their copies from GW then there aren't really anymore leaks or unofficial pics and they should be allowed here. All people are doing is taking screenshots of GW approved influencer reviews (which are clearly done in a way to allow screenshots), who are revealing the info in a manner GW are happy with. Anywho, was just thinking...
  16. Does anyone know if anyone's made a database of rules and warscroll screenshots from the reviews? I'm super busy at the minute and haven't really the time to compile one for myself.
  17. So much information! What a day. To summarise for here though, the list I was working on is now 2190. Far too high. Gonna cut 3 Longstrike, bringing it down to 1950. On the plus side, that's 3 less models to paint to get a legal army on the table. Celestial Vindicators' new rules though... they really aren't the best!
  18. And that's all the black underarmour complete - whoop whoop! Just for the sake of another pic, here's my Annihilator. Took a punt, using contrast black for the shield. As a base, I'm chuffed with how it came out. Won't be painting again until next Monday now. Next up will be more back. This time Corvus and I'll be getting the base down on the backs of the shields and the Longstrike guns... off the top of my head I think that's about it. Actually got a game tomorrow night so pumped for that. See how I do against giants!
  19. They don't always have to look bad. I found these online and saved them for reference as they look immense. P.s. if these are yours, very well done! Lush work.
  20. Outstanding advice. Very much appreciated. I've only just seen this but will definitely be trying out these tips when I next take pics.
  21. Just thinking, the rule would be pretty tasty with the Stormkeep rules. 5 Libs on an objective, counting as 15, causing MW when charged and fighting again when dying. Not bad. Shame I don't run Knights.
  22. Whichever red leather I choose, it'll work as well for the strap behind the shield. Thinking about how to paint these has been on my mind. In the planning stage of this project I, for some unknown reason, decided to completely ignore the backside of the shields. Think I've settled on just black for the back of the shield, red leather for the strap, and then silver for the bit connecting the strap to the shield. Now I'm looking at those bolts... Those bolts were on my mind this morning as they're also on the armour. Did a quick check of GW's site to see what they do with them. For their Hammers they just leave them the same colour as the armour but the ones behind the shield are silver. Think I'll just do the same.
  23. I mean, honestly, if the spears don't get snapped off at least once before this is over I'll be super surprised! They're not Nighthaunt fiddly but those spears are awkward! Lush models though. Managed to get a second layer of grey seer on this week. Finished up last night and started work on laying down the black contrast. I managed to get half the army done - the other half I'll get done tonight. It felt so good getting the grey seer stage out the way. So far I'm pretty happy with how this phase went. Using black contrast for these areas is very satisfying. I just take it straight from the pot for this and allow the natural flow of the paint to really fill in the areas. I find it can really flow into the nooks and crannies, allowing you to really see the shape and also revealing where you've went wrong, helping with the touch up stage. Initially, for the sake of making things simple, I had decided to just do all straps in this colour as well, as you can see in the pics. Looking at it though, I've been uhming and ahing for about a week. With the new Thunderstrike stuff, there really isn't much colour to them. I want red to be one of my main colours, along with the green armour and the silver (maybe gold?) trim. With older models this isn't an issue, what with tabards and what-not. Thunderstrike though, there really isn't that much fabric. I was going to have the belt as red but then this made me look at the bags, scabbards, etc., hanging from them. Then this made me look at the straps again... I think I've pretty much decided all of these are now going to be red. This isn't really much more work and I can just redo the straps when it comes to doing all red. However, I don't really want this red to be the same red that I'll be using for tabards and plumes so I've been researching red leather, which I feel would be more fitting. I came across the following two recipes: Khorne Red - Nuln Oil - Pink Horror; Mephiston Red - Agrax - Evil Suns - Wild Rider. I think I'm leaning towards the latter as this is already the scheme I use for fabric but I'll be using Carroburg Crimson rather than Agrax. That being said, I do really like Khorne Red... that'll be a decision for next week though.
  24. Very good point. I've Death Guard Codex. Cheers for clearing that up!
