Sigh.

GW has just legitimised paint-shaming in their rules.

GW, as a predominantly white company, has literally just said that you’re going to get penalised for not living up to a white person’s standards.

We need to have a serious talk about the very real reasons a Black, LGBT or other minority person may not have a “battle-ready” army, such as working extra hours, educational (creative) racism and the psychological trauma of facing hate on a regular basis, due to our current facist government.

GW needs to correct the record before they cause more stress and anxiety to the people who need help most.

This is really heckin’ problematic

Mine is that I got over-excited about Eldar for a week or so, bought a bunch of models for a Kill Team and some paint, got around to building them which was incredibly frustrating due to the age of the models and an unreasonable amount of mold lines, and then tapped out after I just felt pissed off about having to devote time to painting minis that feel right

I've got two big ones that happened when I was newer. Bought a xiphon interceptor because it is the coolest space marine flyer, used epoxy to put it together and got to the belly of it, used way too much epoxy and now there's just this nasty blob of epoxy on the belly of the thing near where the missile bay is that I can't really get rid of without ruining the model even more. The other is buying a set of tau battlesuits off ebay to do conversions with, didn't look at the pictures well enough, and what came were really bad tachikoma conversions that were damaged and missing a ton of bits, went to try to strip them by using nail polish remover, but thank god it ate through the cup before the models were completely ruined.

I told him I was building DA and wanted him to be the first person to play them, with the intent of telling him as we started playing that mine were the actually loyal ones.

Okay man, is that cope hard to carry? If it's that simple any idiot could do it, so do it.
>That last bit
Then it doesn't matter and there's no problem, is there? Painted and unpainted armies are equally valid, which is what they're really after. Typical progressive bullshit. Art is and always will be based on merit and skill, and shitters hate that because they're bad and don't want to be told so. They want to be lied to and don't want to be judged, and they feel judged because they're getting dropped a letter grade for lack of effort by a company whose dick they suck.
Again, "How to Paint Citadel Miniatures" was like a $35 book, now that stuff's on YouTube for free. They redid the whole paint line to make it easier, more pigments and shades, divided up the line (base, layer, technical, wash) so you know exactly what your're getting. Then contrast, the one coat wonder. and people still ain't paintin' their mins. This paint line ain't selling itself, so now it's in the goddamn rules.

If I wanted to play a balanced strategic tabletop game I'd play chess. I wouldn't have to build and paint my gamepieces either. I play 40k because I like the lore and aesthetic and I want to forge a narrative with my dudes that's grounded in gameplay.

Oh yes, the system we have now where we have several variations of the same rule is much better. How many variations of Objective Secured do we need? How about deep strike? Rending? Marines are getting bad with their nested rules and it's only going to get worse.
N4 is just around the corner, the rules are free, the armybuilder actually exists and is free, and the armybuilder links directly to a rules compendium if you forget what a rule is. It has the best cover system I've seen and answers the old question "why is it when I fight in CC my enemy can fight back, but can't shoot back when fired on?" because you can. The passive player doesn't just pick their nose, roll saves and remove models, they actually have things to do and decisions to make.
Perhaps best of all your you and your friends, there's 20 models to paint at maximum and they're all pretty small.

Dakka Dakka is that autist who doesn’t talk to anyone and just mutters to himself.

On top of that the rules for obstacles states that "Beasts, Infantry and Swarms receive the benefit of cover" which doesn't include Drones or Battlesuits.

And in addition, almost every terrain category listed is Dense Cover, and the markerlight bonus only works against Light Cover RAW.

This is an even worse edition transition for Tau than 4th to 5th.

no it's fucking not. this is awful. The washes were bleeding into the wet paint. THOSE BOOTS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE DARK BLUE.

And then I spent 5 minutes looking for my texture spreader before giving up and using a ruined old paintbrush.

If battleready is 3 colors, and I only painted parts of my model (like only the left leg or something) but used at least 3 colors, is the model theoretically battleready?

Contrast are basically a high pigment wash that you out over a white or grey base. It pools more in the recesses and less at the edges giving a gradient.

classic paints are opaque, you apply them as solid colors and then shade and highlight with other paints. contrast paints are a transparent paint that is intended to go over a bright (white or light grey) undercoat, the nature of the paints surface tension causes it to leave recesses darker and raised areas lighter, creating natural shading with 1 coat of paint. it has a tendency to look bright and saturated whereas the normal painting method has a lot more variety in what you can achieve.

contrast goes over a white or off-white base in a way it gets more pigments in the recesses and less on raised areas, creating in one go a progression

normal paints distribute the pigment uniformly and washes differ from normal paints that their pigments are thinned down enough that while distributing the pigments pretty much all over, they still leave the colour underneath visible

more or less

Rather be a schizo than a complete fucking retard that believes someone found a $250 niche as fuck box in a trashcan that knows what it is about and browses this site.

Honestly it all depends on the release date and the shipping date of the box, if it hasn't shipped then hes from the UK, probably Nottingham and works for or close to GW, just order of elimination really, can't be that hard if GW actually numbers the boxes. I think i remember seeing a hand, then again everyone in Europe is white, had it been USA he would be fucked by now or not, who cares really.

Why would you have to strip them after? Just dot glob on thick paint.
All you have to do for Battle ready is the basecoats and base. You can add the details later

I've had some success with them. All the pads and stuff work, all the heads and even some of the arms like Power Fists will work too

OK so one thing I don't get about the new painting rule. It gives 10 VP if your army is fully painted, but each objective scored is worth 15. So, if I score 4 objectives with a fully grey tide army, and my opponent with a fully painted army scores 3, I still win. What's the problem?
