Re: Proxies vs. Counts as vs. Converted models

I think in general most of us here go for "Does it look like what it's supposed to, and can it be confused for anything else in the game." In the case of your Sci fi ape above, it would be pretty clear to most people that it's a Jokaero - there's nothing else it can be - so it looks fine t...

Re: Forge World Airbrush Paints

I believe Forgeworld's clear range are similar to Tamiya's clear paints. Rather than providing a wash effect, they simply go down as a transparent, gloss paint layer. This is useful for going over preshaded work to provide the colour, over silvers to make metallic colours with really good depth or f...

Re: Name the legion

Don't worry, Ultramarines are a great Heresy choice - they have some cool models from Forgeworld and you get plenty of transfers in the Calth boxed set. The Black Library's writers have done a great job of making them cool, as mentioned above Know No Fear is excellent, but also Mark of Calth and Unr...

Re: Horus Heresy novels

Legion is by Dan Abnett and is excellent.
Nemesis is okay, but doesn't lead into other novels - read it if you need a hit of 30k fiction and don't have anything else to hand.
Furious Abyss is terrible. I'd skip it.

But that's just, like, my opinion, man.

Re: Vanguard vs hate: Vanguard Assemble!

So, I've got a yellow Knight to go with the Reaver and Warhound, and I'm sure we can find some stuff to go with them on the day. If we're to face any chance at all against that Warlord, we need a *lot* of 'D'.

I think we need a full robot check too. How many Knights can we access to support the Reaver and Warhound?

Re: Armies for spoils

I'll be bringing a spare army in case there's an odd number of people - it'll will be either 40k Imperial Fists or Heresy World Eaters.

Re: Contemptor loadout

I know people that have had a lot of good results from two multimeltas in a drop pod. Power fist / chain fist is amazing, but you then need to decide what guns to put inside them. Gravitons are great against heavy vehicles, meltas against any other armour. Heavy flamers have their place too! Otherwi...

Re: Knights in 30k

Imperial Knights have their own army list in Heresy book 4! To use them outside a Mechanicum army they need to be allies, which means a minimum of two if you want them for Space Marines.

Re: Space Wolves Heresy Army

I have vague plans for a Word Bearers army after my World Eaters are done - if I do it, it'll feature the EIGHTFOLD LANCE, a Falchion super heavy tank destroyer from Hol Beloth's Graven Star armoured division. I reckon some twin linked volcano cannon would be pretty awesome!

The Tactical Squad is all Mk IV, as is the power armoured character. Obviously the Terminator character is equipped with Cataphractii armour. Christmas run up sounds like a sensible release date!

Re: Who are the (30k) warriors?

Some of newer models are on 32 mm I believe! Not heard any reports of older stuff being repackaged with 32mm bases.
