Re: [PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

I haven't decided 100% on the spearmen yet and decided to give it a bit more time. I wonder whether to make one big block of spearmen, and get two big units of rxbs, or 2 big blocks of spearmen and 1 block of rxbs. Tough choices! I think it is more likely that I will ned a 2nd block of rxbs than spe...

Re: [PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

I will probably glue the shield arm and shield afterwards, but include the spear in the spray.
Currently working on another set of boxes, to clean them up. I'll post an update soon.

Re: [PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

20210923_092508.jpg The last sprue... of warriors. The picture may not look special but it did feel like it to me. This is a picture of my last sprue of 6th edition DE Warriors. This was the first sprue I bought (well not -this- one but one like this), and my wall of shame has had one unfinished sp...

Use the three witch elves for a cauldron of blood.
That sounds like a plan, but I got some with the Cauldrons I do have. I'll keep them for later.

Re: [PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

And then I found a shelf full of metal minis. My project to clean up my Warhammer stuff just got bigger. Luckily for the black guard I have more models to make a unit. But for the witch elves, those are the only ones of that range that I have. I vaguely remember buying them, but I can't remember wha...

Re: [PLOG] Daeron's Blues

The clean up also reveals box upon box of loose bits and half-made models. This is but one of them, and the picture doesn't even show the mess at the bottom. There is no curse in Elvish, Entish or the tongues of Men for this mess. 20210915_102700.jpg I find the clean-up unexpectedly invigorating. It...

Re: [40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

I ended up settling for a softer white. The bright white was wrestling for attention, and the bright yellow as well. I tried softer versions of both, and in the end I found the white more pleasing (even though the more tan-yellow was nice!) 20210914_173750.jpg meanwhile I started experimenting with ...

Re: [40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

I'm stuck deciding on a colour for the bands. None of the choices really seem to click and I keep coming back to it. The 3rd from the left was the original attempt - It's the official theme. I don't like the yellow though. It looks too industrial and bee-like. The 2nd from the left was an attempt to...

Re: [PLOG] Daeron's Blues

Yes, they get square bases to play 8th or the new old world when it releases. 20210913_085811.jpg The first step before beginning a big project is making room. I decided to buy proper bit boxes and started clearing all those sprues that I had left for spare parts. This picture shows the first staple...

[40k] Daeron's Thousand Sons

While I'm building my old dark elves, I'll also be painting my thousand sons for Warhammer 40k. This is the army I'm going to play in the coming weeks.
I have yet to complete my first unit, but here's a preview of what's coming!

[PLOG] Restoring my Old World Dark Elves

It's been a while. Although I won't be painting them up quickly, I thought I'd share my wall of shame. I got into an irresistible urge to build the remaining models. I will paint them some day too! But for now, behold the stash!

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

I would appreciate the help :) But... I would recommend to wait a bit longer before putting in a lot of effort in the style. People are considering a migration to another platform. I have not upgraded to the latest version of phpBB yet, but only to the last version which still supports a migration t...

Re: Summer Clean-Up

Everything has been cleansed, except for the users. I will check on that action later since I don't feel like doing it one at a time as the ACP offers. Additionally, I'd like to clean up the administration of the websites. Our hosting plan has a long history, and this has given us plenty of accounts...

Another technical change has been completed, where we upgrade the version of PHP itself. Everything seems to be working, but should you encounter an issue, please report it and I'll look into it asap.

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

Thanks for the report. That should be fixed now.

I will try to customize the style in the coming days. I think a slightly more neutral background, a pink highlight and our logos should get us going :)

Re: Some changes to the forum are coming

Yeah. The style is lost. This seems to be the best replacement. I will be adding logos and customisation in the coming days.
My hope is that, by working on this style, future compatibility will improve

I'll postpone the migration to the start of next week.
My wife's taking me on a weekend :D I would hate to rush the migration to get it done in time and then disappear, leaving you all without support for 3 days.

Re: Forum Resurrection Advice

For me, it's all about cost and what it takes to make it work :D
Other than that it's all good by me. So far, I have only found services considerably more expensive than we have now. I am looking into AWS Lightsail, which seems to be relatively cheap, but might also prove technically more challenging.

Greetings, While working on the webserver, I noticed our footprint was quite big. I was wondering if we could clean up some of the following: ⋅  The 9th Age codexes from version 0.9. We hosted these when T9A was launched to help them overcome the bandwidth. But I don't think these are stil...
