Last year it was Necrons, Space Marines, Vampire Counts and Empire, and this year it is supposed to include a Dark Elf box (according to BoLS). - Loran Could you please give us the link to the source?

Re: PLOG! A first for me.

Thanks for the WIP pics! I've always (on the two or so times I tried it...) had a problem with modelling cloaks, which in the end usually turned out as flat sheets with bumps draped on the shoulders of the model in question I think the problem was in trying to do the whole thing at once, scales and ...

Re: PLOG! A first for me.

I love that cloak!!! I see that and I get a feeling similar to what you probably have when you learn to walk as a toddler. Seriously mate, awesome work! Did you use any sort of skeleton support inside the cloak, or did you sculpt it all with GS (or the brown version of it) onto the model? - Loran

Re: Witch Elves: are they a trap, okay, or our best core by

It's nice that the WE are Core and like Dalamar mentioned earlier, they are only 1 point more than they used to be but they gained ASF. However, I don't think they are a "ZOMG LOLZ MUST HAVE!!!11!"-unit. They have an impressive offensive capability, but they are very squishy, especially if...

Re: Dark Riders and RXB

I feel that the RxB upgrade is good, as like Dalamar said, the RxBs make the Dark Riders more universal. I've lost count of the times when the unit would not have been able to do anything if they didn't have the RxBs. The possibility to shoot at something if there's nothing else to do is quite usefu...

Re: Hordes ??? where to go from here ?

What do mean by MSU? And hammer units ? MSU = Many Small Units, ie. an army where you have a lot of small units (duh... ). This would mean a lot of units at the minimum unit size, or close to that amount of models... Hammer = a unit that hits hard and brings the pain to your opponent. The opposite ...

Yeah, that all goes along with the "you should have placed an advance order on it!"-policy that I've seen a lot of people use in stores. Some people are just concerned on the "here and now"-principle, as technically they can't be 100% sure you'll come around to collect and pay fo...

If there had been more to it than that and a wrap around cover I could have been tempted. Like a Limited edition f...

Re: Special Edition vs regular ol' Edition

It's the collector bit that really gets people going. Some people just want to own this kind of limited edition stuff...

Re: Executioners and cold one model advice

A quick advice on the Executioner models: Pin the blades! Yes, they're quite thin, so the process will be a pain in the rear, but it's worth it. The blade is large enough to get bumped into and get stuck in sleeves and whatnot, that the small area for joining the two bits usually doesn't hold well e...
