Re: New method for stripping paint.

I use the tub because I've mostly done infantry. The spray might be better for tanks but I don't know.

Re: Proxies vs. Counts as vs. Converted models

The only thing to add is that if you're attending an event or tournament at Warhammer World - it is (very) strictly GW produced models only.

But yeah, most events are pretty relaxed if its clear what it is (like your adorable space ape).

Re: Name the legion

I don't think so. Ultras are pretty cool in 30k, they're much less annoying plus their legion rules require some nuance to use.

Re: Name the legion

Thanks! I thought that might be the case. Why are all the best colour schemes taken by traitors? I think I want a loyal legion I think you can get away with your own scheme if you tie it in with designs and style. Also, the Traitors are getting some significant rules improvements in the new red boo...

Dan, I'm going to fly your Storm Eagle as a Roc-pattern variant with multi-meltas on the front. Is that okay?

I figure we can use the Roc launcher more.

I've convinced Adam Sardar to fly it with me. He's a former Vanguard member, now living in Oxford, who was threaten to turn hired gun on us. The offer of flying lots high powered flyers seems to have won his loyalty.

Re: Vanguard vs hate: Vanguard Assemble!

It's no robot buuuut, I can paint Corax up.

Corax can only be snap-shotted at if he's not the closest unit to the shooter, which may be useful in apoc with all the templates.

Just a thought ... maybe not a good one!

With my raf past I should probably be piloting the flyers ( or at least repairing the ground support equipment)! I don't mind at all. Let someone else play the big game! 40k is famously realistic, so that definitely makes sense. :D I must insist that our Air Commander wear a Biggles costume, or at ...

If no one else wants to, I don't mind piloting. Saying that, I don't use flyers very often so it may not be our best bet and I won't fight anyone for it.

Love Vanquish, the terrain and players are the key things (not in that order). The below isn't criticism of former tournies, which I've thoroughly enjoyed, just suggestions!

Interesting idea. It would have to be aggressively "if you want to", kept as an evolving document and probably positioned as a dry run Vanquish pack. 1) I'd probably start with the standard invisibility nerf. 2) One approach would also be just banning formations since unbound allows you to...
