My sister is interested but explaining to her beyond the broad strokes usually goes in one ear and out the other. Whenever my dad visits he reminisces about painting model planes when he was younger and likes to look at the larger vehicles I keep in my office.

Turns out one of my aunts is big into it, one of her students showed it to her years ago and she read up and made a Custodes army. She doesn't play much but we do an occasional game and banter about our opposite preferences towards the Imperium and Xenos. It's neat being able to bond over unexpected stuff like that.

Necrons have a bit more longevity in that sense than you might think, since actually destroying one is pretty hard. Recall failure is incredibly rare and as long as they make it out it's pretty easy to either put them back together or pop them into a new body, good as new.

The fact that a 6% recall failure rate was considered really bad in Severed, and the fact that tomb worlds are awakening at greater speed all the time, means that it's probable they'll never have to consider making new Necrons until we've reached levels of plot advancement impossible for GW.

are those magnets?

You use a pin vice with a drill bit that is as wide as the magnets diameter and you drill a hole for the magnet to sit in.

Usually its best to use two magnets one on either side, and make sure you keep the polarities of the magnets constant so that you can swap weapons between models more easily.

I don't want to use any troops because then I have to buy fire warriors that I don't even want. if I move to 1k points they become even more pointless since then I can actually afford the cp tax and drop them. these are the lists I came up with so far. for 500 points the patrol one looks way stronger, but then I would have to buy the start collecting box and pay for units I won't use ever (the ethereal) or will drop as soon as I move up in points (the fire warriors).

also these probably aren't even good lists but everyone has been saying to play with what you want instead of what's good

There might not be many choices, but there is one that based on price alone is more than worth it, that being 3DPrinting which lets you print models at a very small fraction and have much larger control over your models by being able to edit them in blender or printing out bits to convert with.

They are the Populari Mechanica, hailing from <Forge World>, a place with industrial sectors so horrible that it is often mislisted as a Deathworld, meanwhile its dew and scattered Cities are gleaming resplendant monuments to Golden Futuristic progress (kinda art deco), decadence only afforded by the immesurable suffering outside of the cities and its forces are dedicated to the rare notion of Innovation- though often with impractical or even silly results- they scour the Galaxy for battle data and inspiration. So far their mighty army consists of 6 Skitario Rangers, 4 Unassembled Rangers, 1 whole & Modular Kataphron, and 2 partially built ones.

Gonna repaint this and run it as Medusa for my Traitor Guard.

I even got some lore written up that it was made by cultists lost in a hive city and to regroup with their masters, had refitted this to blast through buildings and avoid the skirmish fire from incoming loyalist PDF. It has since become a personal favorite tool of torture as it is an effective piece of shit siege gun that works at both breaking down walls up close and maiming it's occupants with it's use without breaking down. The limbs broken, burnt or severed by this infernal machine only fuels it to go on. How it still sees service and isn't discarded shows how twisted those who worship the ruinous powers are...

My admech+friends fleet got scattered by the great rift. They had to do a big pilgrimage to/rendezvous at Mars to re-establish coherency of the survivors and remaining ships. Since then they've been steadily rebuilding and re-amassing forces by using the chaos of the last two centuries to mask their stealing every ship and scrap out on the edges of imperial dominion they can get they're grubby metalic hands on.

My chaos dudes have been having a great time, hoping from world to world, recruiting anyone willing to join their happy little cult and slaughtering anyone else in the name of the dark gods. The fated great and final battle their daemonic lord has been preaching about for the last 9 millennia seems to have been shoved back a bit by all this massive new rip in reality nonsense, but they're keeping the faith and keeping spirits high anyway.

easy Put one in, and then use that as a reference point for all the others.

For example on a crisis suit, I drilled out the arm, and put a magnet in, then I used this arm as a reference for every gun, putting a magnet on it colouring the top black with a sharpie and then knowing that the black part had to be inside the gun.

Then I did the opposite for every single hard point, except using a gun as the reference this time.

I think you’ve made me realise the problem, it’s not that it’s expensive to play. It’s that it’s expensive to start. It doesn’t bother me to spend $50-100 once every 2-3 months, but if I was starting initially and had to spend $300-400 for a game I’m not even sure I like yet that I won’t be able to fully enjoy after about 50+ hours of painting, I’d be pretty put off.

One theory ive heared of for the mechanicus is that the STC blueprints were all designed via machine learning or AI of some form, meaning humans actually CANT understand the tech. Meaning learning through ritual really is the best solution

It wasnt a golden age for humanity, even though we had it good, it was a golden age for what we had created and now what they had created, and they finally decided, and rightly so, that they had outgrown us, follow that up by the logical deduction that organic life feeds warp predators and they decide to save the universe, from our existence

STC was basically a smart WikiHow, where you told it what you wanted and what resource you had, and it instructed you on how to make it happen. It was designed for colonies that would not have highly skilled quantum engineers and astrophysicists doing all the high end stuff, but the colonies needed the tech.

STCs the Imperium has are prints of the most common designs that people used at the time and didn't want to always go the STC. Even the prints the Imperium has aren't always complete (Land just found the designs for a grav-plate and made the speeder around the design). It's not that humans can't make anything that's not STC, but whenever they try, the results are not optimal. So STC designs have value to them for their quality.

In the box there are two boards. Each board is 30x22.4 inches. Each board has two sides, one grey and one red.
Those two boards combined make a big enough play area for 1000 points. But you would need four boards (the contents of two boxes) to make a big enough play area to meet the minimum specification for a 2000 point game, regardless of which side the boards are flipped to.

Depends on who you're buying from. The good ones don't take ages. But they are hard to get to. That's why people often use the bad ones.

How do you feel about the ordo xenos/deathwatch going further playing Xcom? One idea I've had buzzing about my head is the idea if a comba tg automata, inspired by thr Ambot but instead reverse engineered from a tyranid warrior, kitted out with lots of options, chain claws, phase swords, etc.
(My complaints about the imperial versions of alien tools being better then the originators are set aside for this)

thinking about starting eldar, but im wondering, do you think it'd be passable to get some dark eldar warriors and shave off the spikes and blades and use them as guardians?

they are a lot more dynamic and slim than the old guardian models, and their helmets are lot less chunky, but i dont know if this would be too confusing to people

has anyone tried this? or have any good alternative guardian models?

1, technically none. My group was just beginning before Kung Flu struck, took the wind out of our sails.

1b, we have between us in various points, Necrons, Tau, GSC, Orks, Dark Eldar, Admech, Thousand Sons, Tzeentch Daemons, and Death Guard.

2, no. My roommate has been slowly painting his Doomsday Ark as his first model (ouch), while I've been slowly painting terrain instead of my armies.

3, hell no. I can't stand marines, let alone whole hordes of them. Some HH minis are nice but that's about it.
