I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

So I've discovered since really diving into the Black Library, there are two types of books.

 

The first is just pure, licensed entertainment value. They're by no means award winning novels, but they are enjoyable experiences.

The second are insidious marketing tools designed to make you crave their peddled plastic in ways that are frightening upon introspection.

 

In the case of the former, Apocalypse by Josh Reynolds under the Space Marines Conquests sub-line, is a great fun read all on its own.

 

In the case of the later, The Watchers of the Throne is making my palms itch for a Custodes/Sisters of Silence army.

 

It's easy to tell the bolterporn from the quality.  If it's by Chris Wraight, Dan Abnett, or ADB just read it. Goto's not around anymore but he's the go-to trash author.  That's probably Gav Thorpe now.

Not really. The Grey Knights are there but not what I'd call characters, and Guilliman's Guilliman. Don't get me wrong, I like Guilliman but as a narrative focal point not as a "BUY OUR MODELS" kind of deal.

Of the books I've read since returning to the hobby in July, I'd say Justin D Hill is pretty low on that totem pole. Cadia Stands was an absolute mess of a novel, with characters popping up and dropping out of the narrative left, right, and center and entire chapters that mean less than nothing to the overall narrative. Also apparently the main character of the book doesn't even show up until halfway through it while the character we start the book with is relegated to a cameo appearance at the end.

Maybe when I'm 80. For now, I haven't bought a single model since my Atalan Jackals, because I'm sticking with the pledge to not buy more until I'm finished assembling/painting what I have.

Guess who's back...back again...

 

The Old World's back.

Tell a friend.

 

 

Not super surprising given Total War: Warhammer and Vermintide making the setting more popular then ever, but Games Workshop is returning to the Warhammer Fantasy Battle roots with Warhammer: The Old World, making it akin to the Horus Heresy for 40k. Whether that means all new models will be produced by Forgeworld, I have no idea.

So I'm a total newb when it comes to the Tabletop game, so I really hesitate to criticize other players and their strategies. But this? This was a murder.

 

 

I just...I don't get the White Scars player's thinking with this one. Why would you rush an entrenched enemy position when the objective is to score as many points as possible? I know the caster remarks on the First Strike point, but throughout this match I just felt like the White Scars player was dumping far too many dice and dedicated attacks onto single shot units.

 

The Dragons, for example. I don't know Eldar so I'm not sure how big a target they should be, but rather than dump all his Invictius attacks into the squad and waste some of the Repulsor's shots with it, why not offload Khan and have HIM deal with the Dragons with the Invictius and Repulsor running interference?

I know only so much about 40K but with what I know about AoS and the comparison between the two, a lot of 40K players don't play with the mindset of playing for the objective. Also, a criticism I have is that the map allowed a little too much camping on the home objective. The Eldar player didn't need to move much. Also, was Khan the warlord? If so, that skews some things on the risk/reward.

I'm not sure about LoS rulings, but to me I'd have just pounded the Eldar's position with the Repulsor's weaponry while daring the rest of the army to attack entrenched positions. Maybe swing the Land Speeder around the flank and concentrate most of the weapons on the flier.

 

But again, that's me armchairing as a total newb.

Genestealer Familiars are the smallest models I've tackled thus far.

 

They strain my mind, eyes, and hands.

 

On the plus side, they're fantastic means to test out my Patriarch (and by extension, any future Purestrain Genestealers) color scheme. And I'm happy to report I think I'm going to be happy with it. Warpfiend Grey for the fleshy bits, Caliban Green for the chitin, and everything aggressively slathered in Carroburg Crimson.

Understandably, I'm more interested in the Genestealer Cult rules/sculpts that come with Shadowsun (Since you can see the foot of a Patriarch in her promotional image). Those Drones she comes with though....

 

Anyway, my Magus is done and I did a family shot:

The Genestealer Familiar showcases the ultimate color scheme I'm going to be going with for the Patriarch. He was originally leaning on a Astartes helmet. Mistakes were made painting that, so covered it got.

It looks good, certainly tabletop quality.

 

Have you been using any of the new contrast paints line? I'm terrible at remembering what's named what. Some of my friends are managing frankly absurd turnaround times on painting minis.
