If you're going to be cutting your own hair you need at least two mirrors, coordination, and the ability to swallow your own pride when you screw up and doom yourself to a crappy hair cut for another month.
Before you begin, figure out exactly how you think you want your hair, generally as a guy the back of your head should be pretty easy to do unless you want to do something nuts, and it'll be the front of your head that you'll pay the most attention to. This is good, because the back of the head is a lot more complicated.
Set up your area as well. If you're doing this in front of your bathroom sink, lay down a towel so you don't keep finding hair on your bathroom floor until the end of time. Also set up a second mirror behind you. This way you have both hands free to cut the hair on the back of your head.
Now that you're ready to begin, remember that anything you do that you use the second mirror for is backwards to what you're used to in a regular mirror, it is always better to cut away less than more if you're not sure, and you'll probably end up looking kind of retarded the first few times so have a hat ready.
Otherwise, good luck.

I strongly disagree.

Xeno is a generic character. Very generic. She's like a female blueberry Mr Bean, a child in an adult's body who does things in a well meaning but incompetent way. It's hardly a new concept. There have been countless characters like that, and all of them lend themselves to the "kawaii waifu" stereotype.

Regardless of how similar she may be to Tank Girl, Blue is at least a bit different (and less waifubait).

And not an interesting one at that.

>> No.22071186

>There have been countless characters like that.
Because it's a strong, efficient and interesting character type;
Blue fits another archetype (not really Tank Girl, actually, it's just her visual aspect): the kid with gentle giant buddies. She's actually more normal than Xeno, it's her lack of quirkiness that makes her contrast with her environment. By herself, she's just some slightly rude kid.

>> No.22071187

But that's the thing, she's not by herself.

And it's not that she started as just some rude kid, she's grown up to be like that.

In any case, the interesting thing about Blue has always been the Scraplootas, not her. But if you want to talk about the Scraplootas you need to throw out the waifu fishing rod first.

Krumpus Bay, one afternoon, right outside Teeftougua. A moderately sized shuttle broke away from a Space Hulk that orbited the bay. As it drew closer, curious eyes saw that it bore the emblem of the Scraplootas, a spanner and a bent strip of metal behind the front of some trukk engine with headlight eyes and teeth. The shuttle landed in front of one of the safe ports, the grot on duty giving the shuttle a nod and a salute as the engine cut off. Scraplootas weren't very well known in Krumpus Bay, but they did have allies amongst the desidens they could trust fairly well. They never had to fire on any parts of the bay itself, yet.
The door to the shuttle opened, a ramp extended, and down walked four nobs, a really skinny weirdboy, a shrub, and a handful of grots. The biggest one had a looted commissar's cap and was draped in a similarly looted Ethereal's robe like a cloak. He didn't carry many weapons, save for a very large revolver at his waist and a decently sized chainchoppa, practically ceremonial by Ork standards. With bandoliers of mugs and two serving grots on his back, it was fairly obvious this Ork was serious business, for fighting, for interspecies interactions, and for a good cup of squig tea or coffee. His serving grots waved Scraplootas banners half heartedly. This was Urtylug, de facto leader of the Scraplootas. He looked almost noble or refined. Definitely by ork standards, almost by other more exacting standards. As both Warboss and Kaptin, he was particular about his titles, and calling him a Warboss in space and vice versa was asking for a good krumping. In floating space station places like Krumpus Bay, the distinction was at best blurry, so generally it was best to call him something along the lines of Warkaptin or Kaptinboss or da Boss.

Next to Urtylug was his right hand Ork, the Big Mek Zizzbitz. A first mate of sorts, Zizzbitz dealt with all of the technical bits that running such a technologically sophisticated Warband required, or at least did it by proxy when he couldn't be zogged to do it himself. He had a powereye and a powerklaw, which currently lofted a chest marked "GUBBINZ N BITZ." His arm underneath was intact, the chest was just so large and heavy that it required augmented strength or a bunch of grots to carry, and Zizzbitz wasn't about to trust a bunch of gits to his box of loot. At his belt he only carried an orange transparent kutlass with a chainblade, its bits were flashy and they probably zizzed a whole bunch when the kutlass was running. On his other shoulder sat a grot. A careful observer would notice that this grot was Blue, had a nasal slit like a Tau, had large Tau-like eyes, had hooves like a Tau, had the body shape of a female Tau, held a Tau Fio'la spanner in her hand like a Tau would, was wearing a squighide jacket that she made herself, and was definitely a grot. The kind of grot that aided a Big Mek in all of his duties loyally or got krumped. She didn't look like she got krumped much, and the Big Mek seemed to tolerate a lot of mischevious mucking about by this grot. Said grot was now trying to clamber onto Zizzbitz's head for a better view with minimal comment from the Big Mek.

On Urtylug's left side was a Kommando. Draped in a tarp, he carefully surveyed the area the way only experienced trackers and hunters did. Or at least, he looked around quite slowly. He spat out a small pebble or perhaps a chip of a tooth. It was hard to tell, because this was Rockeata, a moniker that was both literal and figurative, as he was as patient as erosion and as sneaky as a sudden avalanche. And he ate rocks. It was rumored his waste matter could be used as building material, but horrible realization never dawned on him, mostly because you can't be that bright to go around eating rocks in the first place, so the literal application of a metaphorical phrase is completely avoided. Urtylug's best Kommando, Rockeata was a sneaky git when he needed to be, but he just looked out of place in the urban sprawl of Teeftougua.

>> No.22071318

>>22071312
Behind Urtylug was the "priest" Fizzgutz, the Weirdboy Threegrot, and a shrub of dakka.
Never mind that in the urban enviroment of Teeftougua even the toughest weeds were withered and pitiful, this shrub looked well watered and large enough to hide a nob inside. It also apparently grew fresh dakka. Whenever a grot tried to pick one of the dakka fruit, the shrub also grew a boot to kick the grot. The shrub would then grow Snekkit's head and yell at the grot. Snekkit was the second in command of Urtylug's Kommandoz, and was doing his best to be a notible swashkrumper, just like Urtylug himself. He actually had more successful missions than Rockeata, but no one was keep track and half of them were suicide missions anyway so they didn't count. He had a soft spot for Blue, and brought her on many missions, not the suicide kind, because he thought she was lucky.

>> No.22071326

>>22071318

Fizzgutz was dressed in robes and held a large book that someone had carved "DA BUK" into the cover. he was surrounded by grots, for he was the Scraplootas' grot herder, though the grots seemed to be herding him. Every so often he'd pick a grot at random to throw the book at to keep them in line. The grot would just dodge the book, pretend to get hit anyway, and then make sure Fizzgutz got the book back. Da Buk contained the holy scriptures of Gork and Mork, or so Fizzgutz assumed, as he was illiterate and he considered reading unorky. It didn't stop him from opening the book, pointing at some line or other, and then preaching the ways of Gork and Mork, never once looking down at the page. The grots would politely clap each time he finished. He was also a recruiter of boyz, quite impressive actually. He'd take the ones that were mucking about and hit them with Da Buk while reciting something or other incoherent and then the grots would help add the boy to the press gang. The grots seemed to be doing their own sort of recruitment as their numbers mysteriously swelled over time, but Fizzgutz didn't notice.

Finally, Threegrot was just there, the first Weirdboy that Urtylug saw in the ship. It was helpful to have Weirdboy support in case something went funny, just so Urtylug could fight weird with weird. It was tactics. He could only be matched this way, never beaten. Urtylug never noticed that the first Weirdboy he saw every time he went looking for Weirdboys was Threegrot, but that was probably expected of a busy Boss like him. Threegrot knew though. Dressed in a trench coat, he lurched around like three Weirdgrots standing one on top of the other. But of course something like that would be ridiculous and definitely wouldn't happen. Most people didn't even notice Threegrot, as hard to not notice a skinny Weirdboy that grumbled from chest and hip level and occassionally produced small zaps of energy from his limbs and eyes.

>> No.22071349

>>22071339

Fizzgutz was the first to break away from the nobs and the grots dispersed with him, he was to round up some boyz to reinforce their frontline. Any boy who was muckin' about and would hear the word of Da Buk and was smaller than Fizzgutz was applicable. So Urtylug's retinue included the Big Mek, Blue on the Big Mek's shoulder, Rockeata, Threegrot, and the shrub, which grew boots when it needed to get places. Sometimes Snekkit's head also poked out of the top when he wanted a better view.
Today was the Scraplootas day in town. Urtylug was looking for work, Zizzbitz wanted to talk some shop and trade for flashy bits, and Blue wanted to look around. It was only the second time the Scraplootas had been to Krumpus Bay since she joined them. The first time she hadn't left the space hulk as she was still trying to get used to being an Ork. Today she was all eyes and ears, taking in the sights, breathing deep, and then coughing whatever it was that she just breathed in back up.

The only thing i'm sad about concerning blue was in the original thread, I didn't just write (poorly) blues back story.

But i also wrote about a grot that was adopted by an elderly Tau because the grot had somehow accdentally made it onto a tau craft and was mistaken for a lost alien child.

The old tau doting on the grot rather heavily while the grot is an indescribable terror. And the elderly tau's neighbour being a retired crippled Shas'ui who realizes what the grot is and who's plans to kill the grot or confront the elderly tau are always confounded.

Even if its a joke at the expense of those mothers or grandmothers who have a toddler but yet do nothing to discipline the kid when they're badly misbehaving.

You mean you can't tell the similarities between the tau and the trade federation?

-Blue asian accent aliens.
-Adept at diplomacy able to steer councils to their will
-Use wide varieties of drones to wage war
-Have over tanks with powerful precision weaponry and missiles.
-Bad balistic skill

The Kroot are like the Gungams too
-Fairly Savage but with some surprising technology
-Using large beast of burden that mount weapons
-adept in closer combat
-not well armoured

The big difference being that The tau are done cool and can be somewhat bad ass and the kroot are infinitely superior to any race that contains jarjar binks.

The tau were always a mix of 90's/2000's scifi.

Their mission and their status in the setting as a new and vigerous race always also reminded me of the Federation of Planets from star trek (especially the whole working with other races and integrating them). And of course crisis suits work well as any sort mecha (with angular smooth lines and aerials like gundams)

I like to call the tau the Trade Federation of Planets as a portmanteau. But unlike the other two settings the tau are much more sinister, despite their utopian appearance.

They do underhanded deals. they practice gunship diplomacy. They use propaganda EXTENSIVELY.

Not all of it has to boil down to sterilization. (which honestly isn't even all that bad considering, you could pop out a few kids, Get sterilized and then just keep fucking not having to worry, and its better than being blamed or being destitute with a bunch of kids in the bottom of a hive).

The tau use sterlization to control populations not to kill them off (except for that planet of traitors, and lets face it, had it been a reclaimed imperial world that rose up against the imperium for the tau, every single person on that planet would've been executed immediately, not just sterilized.)

How is it defence force if i'm posting the truth?

In once case the tau was dealing with rebelious traitors, (and dissidents and politicals the tau do come down heavy upon as they work against the greater good)

And in the fantasy flight books it was sterilization for population control since human populations tended to become more wildly out of control than the tau anticipated. (partly all the babies and love, partly due to the average human living twice as long as a tau).

Population control doesn't mean sterlizing kids. No it could just be a 2 child policy with automatic visectomy after the second child.

or it could just be vasectomies immediately but via lottery.

But who cares. Free Vasectomy? Hell most people i know would love to have unprotected sex with a guarantee of no kids.

>Being sterilizing brainwashed drone isn't so bad...really guys really

According to FFG the Tau use sterilizing when the population to keep control over the humans. This means if humans don't like how the Tau run things they get sterilized and have their numbers reduced dramatically. This is a form of genocide. It's not quick and clean like the Imperial type but still this is genocide.

The populations are used as slaves and then are allowed to die off so the Tau can colonize their worlds.

And the last part about populations dying off and being used as slaves is conjecture.

I read the FFG stuff and it only mentioned population control.

The rest was about subduing dissidents and removing Chaotic forces.

Also how is this any different on imperial worlds where if humans don't like how things are being run they are declared heretics and burned enmasse by arbitors or sisters using flame throwers.

Chances are the people who wrote most of those are lurking in this thread or have seen this thread by now.

I sincerely doubt you'd be stepping on any toes giving more publicity to this little project by adding one of those pieces to your online magazine thing.
Most of them were written by anons for the sole purpose of others to read them.

Just put them in. Asking permission takes away from the whole anonymous thing, and anyone can take credit for a story.

I'm okay with you using them, and I wrote a few.

Thankyou. I've decided we will publish Dat Blue Grot, the perfect way to get people into the Scraplootas story. Hopefully by doing this we will get somone willing to do that comic series for us.

here is my introduction of the setting for the eZine. Please critique.
Blue and the Scraplootas came out of a simple idea: What if an Ork Tribe adopted a Tau girl? From this idea has spawned one of the greatest /tg/ creations, right up there with Love Can Bloom and the Angry Marines. This is the story of how that Tau Girl came to join the Ork Tribe. If after reading this story you are interested, there is more information and writefaggotry here http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Scraplootas

Which stories would even get comics?

In the unlikely event that someone decides to take up such a challenge, I'd like them to try and go in chronological order, or at least the best they could.

Does anyone have any concerns over the current arrangement of the chronology on the wiki page? I've been trying to organize them a little, but a lot of it can be switched around and rearranged.

>greatest /tg/ creations, right up there with Love Can Bloom and the Angry Marines
That's a whole breeding ground of controversy.

I'd recommend changing "greatest /tg/ creations" to "/tg/'s most notable Ork Tribe" and rewording the rest appropriately.

Maybe just substitute "greatest" with something meaning most well known? Famed, something else, I don't know.

Eh, Scraplootas isn't the only /tg/-made Ork Warband or Tribe or Clan, whathaveyou. There's the Waaagh Tang Klan (mafia/gangsta Ork created about the time of the Rising Sons were popular), Da Blue Boyz (sometime after Waaagh Tang Klan, they're blue-skinned Orks that's the equivalent of heretics in Ork society). Both were created by /tg/, but didn't get as popular as Scraplootas.

I've actually heard of the blue skins.


Trying to collect all the misc. writefaggory (there's a lot of it), thinking of just putting all of the smaller ones that take place within Boris in the same pastebin.

No idea what to do with the fapfictions though.

Well, my disliked series has a specific page for fapfictions, maybe you should do the same?
Keeps it segregated from the normal stories, while still acessible.

Currently the only fapfic on the Scraplootas wiki page is struck through and a non-link.
Just don't draw too much attention to them I guess.
