Alright anon, not the guy you're responding to, but here's some basic tips that will help make painting a lot less painful:

1. Get washes. They are the lifeblood of any hobbyist and can do wonders for your painting with minimal effort.
2. Get a pallet. It will allow you to control the amount of paint you put on the model and allow you to control how thin or thick it is. Pallets are a necessity outside of niche scenarios or if you're a showoff.

>> No.71638706

>will try manging without it.
The wet palet is just to keep the paint from drying for a long time, you can just mix paint on any clean, non porus surface. Like a platic or plate

I mean, obviously they weren’t wolf even in the old lore, they were xenos from that planet, and I’m pretty sure remembering one codex saying that they were more similar to Terran rhinos, genetically speaking, than to actual wolves.
It’s one of the things the SW had to keep secret from the orthodox inquisitors, since “collaborating” with xenos, even bestial one, could be considered heretical

Which is why old chainfists were better, because they were like the current CSM terminator chainfist where it's just an enlarged vambrace with a wrist mounted chainblade. Wish there were any for the current Indomitus, but haven't seen any 3rd party and any updates they do will be in the new, bigger scale. Not a fan of the underslung chainfists on the cataphractii.

My understanding was that Fenrisians were spliced with wolf or wolf-like genes during colonisation in the Dark Age of Technology, either as part of the "experiment in reconstructed mythos" thing that was apparently the goal of colonizing Fenris or simply to help them survive.

This manifests itself so strongly sometimes that Fenrisians either devolve at some point in their lives or are born as 'Fenrisian Wolves' which are technically still mostly human despite their outwards appearance. These have since become a breeding population on Fenris as a species of highly intelligent man-wolf hybrids with a broadly wolf-like phenotype.

Then you have the same background genetics mixed with the Canis Helix, where a Space Marine aspirant can devolve during implantation and becomes the much larger, more powerful species known as a Thunderwolf, which is essentially to regular Fenrisian Wolves what Space Marines are to regular humans.

Red and green look bad when they you cover similar amount of area becasue they are complementary. If you use one of them significantly less to accentuate detail it looks good. That's why green is GW's go to for lenses on red armour.

As for the difficulty, you want to paint the details from inside out. The most difficult parts to reach are what you want to paint first. Painting the eye without messing up the armour is hard but painting the eye first and then the faceplate is not that complicated.
Also don't be afraid of painting small thing because you end up putting paint where you shouldn't. 90% of painting detail is going back and fixing the mistakes you've made on the parts that are already painted

Yeah things could have happened like that, if the fluff hadn't been written yet and if you were in charge of writing it.

Ironic, considering the things you mentioned are a combination of retcon and "that's how things really were even if it appeared otherwise". If GW wanted to pull something like that, they'd do it and they'd bend whatever they wanted to do so. So I can't really agree with it being "anti-fluff".

>> No.71639140

That’s not how it works
The very first part of the process to becoming a SW is getting the Canis Helix, which is necessary for all the other geneseed to stick. The aspirants thus start developing bestial emotions, as a sort of internal beast they have to fight against to keep control, while the priests control their progresses and add the following parts. Some die at this point from cutting their throats with the claws they develop or from smashing their heads against the walls continuously in a raptus
Once this is completed they are thrown basically naked in the Fenrisian tundra with the task of coming back alive. It’s at this point that some fall to the internal beast and turn into a Wulfen, which is described as a tall and muscular humanoid creature covered in fur. Ragnar has to kill one of his friends during his initiation at this point, when the friend fell to the beast

There's no irony at all in this situation. GW puts out anything they want, some of it is contradictory bullshit, but it's the fluff regardless.
What you put out contradicts both the old and the new fluff, so it's anti-fluff no matter how you cut it.
So you have to agree with it being anti-fluff. If you can't, then it's because of a mental handicap on your side.
>Says you. You're welcome to your opinion.
Of course I am, it's correct. You aren't welcome to your shit taste, however.
>but I feel the quality of the necrons went up, significantly, after their rework.
Yeah, but that's because your feelings are in complete contradiction with reality, as we've established. If someone stabbed you in the scrotum you'd feel a light tickling at worst. If someone told you that 1+1=2 you'd feel that he makes no sense.
So with that in mind, never trust what you feel.

Maybe with a small enough needle I could edge highlight vehicles, but even then, I think it would be better-looking to do it as a fade, so on something more organic like an eldar tank. Wouldn't do it on, say, a Repulsor, or any boxy tank like a russ.

As a result of their natural evolution as presented in the fluff.

What's weird about the air caste isn't that they could fly, it's that they lost their wings and became pilots.

I mean Sauron was one of the if not the best fucking model in the LotR miniature game at one point but he was really balanced because the missions required you to do more than just murderfuck everything in front of you.

I think some madlads went with Sauron+2 trolls. And then there was the Kingslayer mission where you had to take down the enemy leader. Man was that a tough nail to bite.

So they'd need to manage their degenerate Eldar urges very closely and in a controlled manner. Might even have an entire organized aspect dedicated to managing it without it devolving into the natural Eldar degeneracy.

But lets say they suppress it. Absolute suppression would also be an extreme, feeding right back into Slaanesh. Which really fits the Eldar as they can't help themselves, they always end up at Slaanesh.

it comes from the fact that a dude working on the 4th ed codex, miss understood the running away part from prior lore. Tyranids send out whole races of explorators and spies, some even sentinent.

Wrong. That's the Exodites. The Craftworlders are those Eldar who realised something really bad was about to happen and bailed at the last moment. They didn't have a moral objection to what was happening in the old Empire until they realised it was about to bite them in the ass in a big way.

Every novel that has explored Craftworld society has depicted it as comfortable and utopian. Their lives are restrictive and ascetic by their own standards, which winds up being broadly similar to what would be considered paradise for a human. Considering you only have to look at Commoragh to get an idea of what the baseline is for Eldar society (and even that is toned down due to the violent meritocracy Vect imposed, forcing Commorites to focus on fighting for survival over indulging their most hedonistic urges) this really shouldn't be too surprising.
