I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Still have yet to see finecast in the flesh. The absurd price is the main sticking point for me ordering a model.

To be fair? On one part, they also initially called their Abyssal Dwarfs "Khaos Dwarfs". So it may not be a final name. For the other? It's not worse than "orks". Given both are the "xtreme kool letterz" version of the orc.

I think the Urk or Urx is a better name, myself. Fits the more organised, millitary (Yet worn and crude) look that Uruk-Hai had.

Everything coming out of Warpath, including the characterisation of the not-Orks, seems very Rogue-trader-ish to me. I hope to Zod that doesn't mean their not-Tyranids will have crotch-mounted melee weapons...

For the UK people, the 40k doubles tournament tickets come out on wednesday. It's well worth going, last time in february was my first tournament and I ended up winning a certificate:

40k doubles results

Look under the colonel schaeffer award and I'm on the left with my partner Rich on the right!

I'ts looking likely Team: shoot him not me will return

When I think of extreeeeme, I think of the Eighties. And when I think of the Eighties, I think of Germany. Blame the Timothy Dalton-era James Bond films. But I have been enlightened, so it's all good.

For the record, the Harlequin Troupe Master is one of the most annoying metal models to put together. "Lets make this model really top heavy, then make all that weight balanced on a really hard to pin strip of thin ribbon!" Gublagh.


Try one of the metal Zoanthropes. I don't care how many bubbles they have, Finecast Zoans are worth it.

I've only opened+put together one Finecast kit, a Hive Guard. Minimal, easy to clean flash, only very small flaws in the model, and they were right at the back of the head where you can't see them. One datapoint doesn't make a trend, but I hate the 'nid metals so much that it's okay with me.

Not sold on the price though.

Agreed, less top heavy Zoans are a significant improvement. Sufficient for me to consider replacing the ones I already have with Finecast, even if I have to fill in a bunch of the model myself.

I honestly feel codex daemons should be thrown out the window and GW should do a separate codex for each of the four chaos gods, detailing their mortal, xenos, daemon and daemon engine servants, plus a 'chaos renegades' codex that would be a mix of chaos space marines and Lost and the Damned.

If each list has some generic core Chaos marine units, yeah, easily. A mono-god Chaos list that combines the Marine and Deamon books would probably have more unit types than the Sisters of Battle already, even before you restored things like cult terminators.

They could even bring 40k beastmen back...

Seriously, streams of it.

QUOTE
Important stuff:

Every 5th wound is allocated by the attacker onto whatever model he wants (sniper weapons every 2nd wound)

Charging now happens in the movement phase by moving within 1" as long as your movement type allows you to assault

Fleet is initiative test to triple movement but no shooting and BS penalty to shoot at the fleeting unit

Move through cover is now initiative test to ignore terrain

Each assault weapon on the model give a bonus attack in close combat if you charge

Cheap 4 point stragem that give assault grenades to every model in your army
