Has anyone else started getting adverts for some random crap TV (or other stupid thing they aren’t interested in) on there feeds, or is it just me?
When the book you ordered from ebay arrives the day after it was sent out. Yeah I’d call that a good thing
Meet Absylonya (name not entirely original)
An Elf Paladin/Monk cross classed whirlwind of death, she’s been running around the DDO Cannith servers for the last 2 days.
And honestly this combo is insane already, and I’ve not even hit the mid-to-high level content. How? Well that’s simple - level 6 and all 3 main saves pushing 20+, immunity to diseases, longswords a monk weapon and enough stat boosting items to push all primary stats to just off 20 (so that’s a +4 bonuses for now).
How did she get this skills? By smashing through the Undead like a hot knife through butter.
If you play DDO, and happen to be on the Cannith servers hit me up. I’ll probably be running her until I find my next custom build to work on.
Painted, lined, based Tau Stealth suit.
Comments welcome. I’ve posted a Tyranid objective marker/test model as well as I’m torn between which ones I want to do more. What do you guys think?
Test colour scheme (and handy objective marker) for Tyranids.
Really quite tempted to do these instead of the Tau, if only because I like the model range more (I dislike maybe 1 ‘Nid model in entire range compared to over half the Tau model range).
So, what do you guys think I should be doing?
That point when you;re trying to line a stealth suit and the fairly new pen you have is either too big or is deciding it doesn’t want to work
Affix straight silver! Over the top laddies! Do you want to live forever!?
Tau colour scheme coming along nicely. If things work out right I’ll try and get photos this weekend of the test Stealth team once finished.
On a slightly related note: I hate Tyranids. You keep tempting me with your gribbly filled model range (one of the very, very few GW ranges that actually still appeals to me as worth modelling with).
Might have to grab a small set of Warriors/something just because.
Okay this is what I’m working/planning on for a long-ish termed modelling project now that my Retribution of Scyrah are practically finished (some minor painting to do but apart from that its all done and I don’t need to buy anything for them again).
Any Tau/40k players that see this please leave feedback. The meta-environment at my gaming club is Marines (of various flavours), maybe some Orks, Necrons and possibly a ‘Nid or 2 (we have a very varied bunch of players, but majority is still Marines). This list is designed as a bit of a generic ‘can fight anything’ setup that does have some anti-Marine specialities.
Evolution of a Mycetic Spore Pod!
For this week I shall be showing how I made my own Tyranid Mycetic Spore Pods based on a guide I found on the internet which I used for my army back in the November Throne of Skulls 2012.
1) Firstly I bought 2 polystyrene 15cm eggs from hobbycraft (a UK site/shop) which come in two parts and where then glued together with PVA glue.
2) The main stuff I used was a sculpting tool, milliput and an hobby knife. The large oval bases where used because CD roms where too small xD
3) The eggs where glued down with PVA and then milliput around it for securing purposes. I marked out my grooved designs with watered down chaos black paint and then carved away. at a sloped angle behind each segment of armour.
4+5) The central gouged out bit of the pod was filled with more milliput and then I used the flat end of the sculpting tool to make fleshy designs. The ‘mouths’ where made with hormagant scything talons and termagants from the Tervigon kit. Greenstuff was used to secure them in place.
6) I sculpted mini greenstuff tentacles around the base to represent the lash whips.
7) Ready for basing! (Felix cameo)
8) After being based with sand the pods where given a liberal coat of PVA glue to seal them. Even after that though there was a little errosion but it looked fitting where it didn’t dissolve too much.
9) Painted and ready for gaming!
Now I know how to make one for my own nids
This is a facehugger approved egg… I mean mycetic spore pod. :P
So its coming down to this for a long term project:
Necrons. Because every model apart from the basic warriors is very nice looking.
Tau. Because I love mecha.
or Tyranids. Tentacles. Tentacles everywhere.
Think I’m going to need a few test models from each to decide what I like the look of.
Tony Foti - Doji Hoturi: A classic character Hoturi is one I really wanted to have done right and Tony was the man for it. was important to capture his armor right, his weapons and the intensity of a duel in combat.
