Cor Blimey, you work fast.

I shall have to find my debit card, Barclays have been unusually unhelpful with this (possibly because I've lost three in the past 6 months:p)

Pity I shall probably be defecting to historical wargames soon (48 1/72 scale infantry for 4...), but I promise to finish my Space Marines first so you have at least one challenging (read:superior) opponent:D

Damented

Oh brilliant! Nice one, shame that isnt what youdid for the force commander really.

JonnyX
15-10-2008, 21:49
Couple of things:
Try to plan your assembly of models, White Dwarf tries to do offensive and defensive stances and also tries to make the model look at a point so the bolter and head are facing the same way, or the sword is down while the pistol is shooting or it looks strange trying to do both.
Secondly, the chaos black spray is your freind, no matter the model always undercoat it (black recomended) or the paint looks faint and usually flakes off
Otherwise its good for a SM player :P (raven guard FTW)
PS i agree about the wash it automatically highlights and shades stuff and is good until you start considering taking it seriously and entering competions or working to showcase standard. For a aim try looking at spikyjames log, it helped me alot
GL with your log,looking good so fay JonnyX (my second log will be up when i get a better camera)

Whats even worse is thefact he has a complete lack of imagination and painting them boltgun metal:eyebrows:

Almost makes you want to break down in tears.

Still,considering hes only having two troops choices Objectives gamea will be easy, destroy them and he cant win!

Edit: Incidentally, do you think a simple power sword will stop a squad of 30 rampaging orks:D

Damented
16-10-2008, 19:48
indeed i do believe my power sword will dominate ur rampaging orks
if 40k was real then yer

1 SM can take on thousands of enemys.....right

but this is the battle game so then the answer is probably no:D

Comrade Wraith
16-10-2008, 19:53
if 40k was real then yer




Ah but if 40k was real, then we'd all be made of expensive plastic and small children running around in giant stores would pick us up without permission and throw us on the floor claiming "they didn't try" before crying.

Either that, or all I'd have to do is wait until my army is re released, because all battle reports featuring my army will result in a win for me:D

Damented
16-10-2008, 19:59
right............. ^o)
but orks sm own orks everywhere

Comrade Wraith
16-10-2008, 20:19
Ah but Ghazgull is still alive is he not. and it took forces from loads of chapters plus the imperial guards.

and Armageddon wasnt the only war;)

Nevermind, your feeble tactical ability shall work to my advantage, plus the fact that your jus rubbish anyway:D:angel:

Now lets not give the admittedly awesome and venerable mods an excuse for an exterminatus:

Nice models Ben
