Re: Magnetizing Dark Riders and Warlocks?

I did it. Torso twist isn't really an issue (I wouldn't bother with a pin or contact point). With a few of the models my magnets aren't quite flush so the riders look a little tilty, so just be careful about that. TBH, the most time consuming part was drilling the holes. I started off making large h...

Re: Schism20's Druchii

Flesh and cloth are insanely well done! The placement of highlights and tones in each are just top notch. Also, the placement of highlights on those boots are excellent. Wow! I can't wait to see more!

Re: An Adventure into Naggaroth (PLOG)* Now with added poll

Great job on your crossbowmen, and I love the way you are doing this, I feel overwhelmed with miniatures! and if I ever get through them, will definitely try to adhere to a similar policy. In terms of your next unit, you can't go wrong with warlocks/DRs, but I voted for other. I think you should con...

Re: Awaken Realms Dark Elf Showcase

Beautiful Paintjobs! I love me some expertly done air brushing. I am really digging that all black cauldron, although I don't think I have the skill to make mine monochromatic (zerochromatic?) and still have it look right. Out of curiosity, what is the model you replaced the Khaine statue with?

Re: Daeron's Blues

I am really liking the look Daeron! The armor is excellent and your trial and error has brought the unit a long way to an excellent point. Yellows and Reds are across the color wheel from blue, so if you ascribe to that, then it would make sense that they look good as a complement (i.e. the dark red...

Re: Wrathbaby's PLOG

I can see on my iPad!!!! That champion looks quite solid! I think if you apply some washes, it will tone down the wing contrast and give the feathers more depth. I'd do it with a blue gray wash. We'll done so far, keep it up :)

Re: Deathknell Watch

The stone looks great and moss and dirtiness make it interesting to look at, which a lot of stone terrain isn't. The only criticism is that the wood looks flat and heavy - it is also much more saturated (amount of pigment) than the rest of the piece which means your eyes are drawn to it. You might w...

Re: [PLOG] The host of the Storm King.

From what I can tell from the picture, I really really like the wings! They look papery and make Abramaxx look really ancient. They go really well with the dark tones and size of the roots on his (her?) spikes. If anything I would consider extending the dark roots on the teeth and making them look a...

Dear Druchii.net, Will You Have me Back?

It’s been a long time since we’ve talked. I haven’t posted on here or been at the Warhammer tables since last summer, months and months too long. A lot has happened since we’ve last talked.

Re: Druchii monstrous ranks

Interesting approach, innovational, I like it despite the fact that it could be tricky to pull it off on the battlefield. But AFAIK, it cannot be done at all: This pack contains Morathi, a finely detailed resin cast kit that comes in eight components and is supplied with a 50mm square monster base ...

Re: 2x Dreadlord on pegasus

On foot or in a bus I would take: Ogre Blade + Black Amulet // Giant Blade + Dawnstone + Charmed Shield. But on Pegusi I think for the 2nd DL a ward is preferable, so Giant Blade + Charmed Shield + Talisman of Endurance, or Lance + PoS + Talisman of Preservation.

Re: Group 42 - Prologue: Mysteries of the coast

Harkyl grimaced internally. The brief acquaintance he had made with the scald’s tomb had awoken a greedy thirst in his heart. On some deep and debased level he craved a power greater and more ephemeral than money could buy. Curse this tax collector! He wanted one of those tombs as his own. He would ...

Re: BEST ARMY LIST EVER (and coolest)

I like the idea of the list, think it would be much more powerful if you only take the minimum core of repeater crossbows and replace the rest with Shades with Great Weapons. Fully kitted shades are 46% more expensive, but that extra 1BS means you should be getting 50-100% more hits (assuming you’re...

It looks fun Aenarion, but I don't think you broke the game. You will struggle against T4 armoured infantry, Cavalry buses and flying circuses.

Quick Update, inspired by my dog Beans (below) I created a unit filler so that my sorcerer can rank up better in my infantry.
