Thanks. A couple of friends and I are looking at starting Legends of the Old West which is based on LOTR with some Necromunda thrown in. So I like the basic rules.


That sounds cool, have you had a chance to give it a go yet?

Reading this thread has made me want to get back into Warhammer again. I stopped when I was 17 because I had to choose between running my car and collecting, but now that I have a bit of money and a great deal of time I'm going to crack out the paintbrushes. I was never into gaming particularly, unless it was on Sundays at school—painting was my thing. I was pretty good at it but nowhere near the standard of Cocky and JoeZ. Jesus, guys. Talent.

Just out of interest, I have a few squads of Cadians, a Chimera, a Hellhound, and some other bits and pieces. Also, a fair amount of High Elf stuff. Would it be worth putting it in the Trading folder? I don't want much for it, I'm just moving to the States and can't take it with me, and don't want to have odds and sods lying about my parents' house in storage.

If you haven't done already it is probably worth putting it in the trading folder. I'm certainly interested in the High Elf bits.

If you put up a few photos I'm sure we can give you an idea of how much to ask. Depends a lot on whether they're painted/condition of models etc

Here's my latest model:

Suggestions on how to base the model to compensate for the stupid pose of the horse would be much appreciated.

Bit of an odd question, but has the White Dwarf with the 40k 6th edition preview been out in the UK yet? Although I haven't played since just after the release of the 3rd edition I like to keep an eye on what they're doing and I saw this:



which calls it out as issue 390, but issue 390 here doesn't have this information in it. I'm aware the US & UK versions are different but from my experiences (and we're going back over a decade here) is that the US was about a month behind in content.

Yup, it's out. The UK issue number is #391 - it was released last Saturday. It very loosely highlights some of the new rules in the new 40k 6th Edition - which is launching tomorrow with a big hardback rulebook.

Details of the new 40k boxset (with a slim rulebook) haven't been revealed yet, so it's probably another month or two away.

Really nice work there Cocky, loving the muted tones and the softness you've got into all the cloth.

Sort of. Heroquest led to Advanced Heroquest, which then gave rise to Warhammer Quest.

It's something of a legendary entry in the Games Workshop "canon" and complete used copies are worth a lot of money.

Just a shame it's only coming to Apple devices, I'd be far mroe interested if it were coming to android devices as well.

Lacking either, I'd just like a Windows version (or an HP Touchpad version, but somehow I think that unlikely ;)) - I'm not sure I'd be willing to splash out on an iPad just for Warhammer Quest.

They recently released their books digitally exclusing to the iBookStore so it seems like they've tied themselves pretty firmly to Apple which is quite annoying (although not many of their books are actually worth reading).

I'm on a painting roll at the moment...this is going to be a stupidly extravagant base, but hey it's going to look fun when it's all done. In three parts...apologies for the terrible photos.

Lots of blood.

Suitably chaotic rock formation.

Not sure how the Bloodletter got there, but there we go :)

Probably still cheaper than a boxed copy of the new game ;-)

Rodeo are brining Hunters 2 to android, so a port of WHQ, some time down the line, may be possible.

Not quite finished yet, but I've had a bit of a deadline to hit on it, so the thing will have to wait for a little while (also, I had...erm...issues with the large plinth too. Tip...don't plonk fingers on still sticky glue. It buggers up the effect somewhat).

Want to add a few more odds and ends to the base too, but happy enough with the resuly so far.

Amazing! Very well lit and shot, too. Any chance of a close-up of the ol' demon, too?

Nice one. Were you using a light box for those shots? If you're getting a new compact camera for close shots, try and find one with a good rep for macro shots, and great ISO performance. What sort if money were you thinking of spending?

The hellbrute model is all kinds of amaze. I'm really looking forward to paint it.

I do have a better camera lurking around, but it's down to pure laziness on my part (and the fact it's my other half's 'special' possession) that stops me from using it that often. Last time I used it I forgot to change the settings back, and I got told off somewhat :P . I occasionally use my lightbox, but quite honestly, I have a slightly cramped working space for using it, so more often than not it gets left out of the equation!
