  1. The Chaos Knight rules are a bit of a mind bend, though I think I've worked it out. I like how they've mad it so that each knight can be quite unique. I've got 3 Despoilers and 2 Warglaives already with 2 Helverins (still in their box, which I bought at the beginning of lockdown) and the Chaos Knights you get in the box; so that's me sorted for a while.
  2. A while ago there was a leak suggesting there's going to be a Traitor Guard release at some point (a lot of the leak has come to pass). I wonder if they'll get a re-release with that? When GW took over writing the 40k Forgeworld rules, the Traitor Guard were not included in the new Forgeworld Compendium (they weren't particularly good rules wise anyways) but from a lore perspective it's odd they've not done much with them.
  3. I can see you used some grass tufts but what are the longer, grassy plants? I must admit; by the time I get to basing I'm usually done with the model so I'm looking to up my base game a bit.
  4. I don't know how many points I have of each faction but I have Death Guard which is my main army. Chaos Knights which i have 4 Questoris, 2 Armigers and 2 more Armigers to make. The initial plan was to soup them with Death Guard and/or Plaguebearers; so I have a few Nurgle Daemon units that could make a 1500-2000pt army from.
  5. If you liked the setting and vibe of season 1 of 'The Terror,' you should give 'The North Water' a go. The full 5 episodes are on iPlayer.
  6. I have zero interest in the Tau so I don't envy you but I'm sure it's all for the greater good.
  7. Maybe it's a quirk of not been able to vote so you can't see the results. I'd of thought once the vote closed it would be made public. Anyone else not see the result?
  8. I know @Nicky didn't get any votes but if I'd produced any of these paint jobs I would be chuffed to bits.
  9. Yeah, the big Tesco near me has Mortal Realms as well.
  10. Have you tried Forbidden Planet online? I think it's an extra couple of pounds for them to send you it but is still worth it if the model is £20 or so. I did with Typhus.
  11. The owner of the independent store I buy from, was told there's a 6-9 month lead on the none model parts for Cursed City. And presumably with pandemic stuff going on there was limited as amount that was made. His estimation (and I don't think he has any secret knowledge) is that it'll be a year before there's another run. Some of the models however look like they may make up some sort of "Start Collecting" box so expect to see them separate at some point.
  12. Yeah, i do it pretty much last because as you say, it's a pain to rectify any mistakes.
  13. I use a 1 part Guilliman Flesh, 1 part contrast medium mix to do any flesh on my models and it works a treat. It might not beat a proper flesh paint job but it's quick with good results.
  14. True, I forgot about Power ratings, I usually play pts values. The jealousy rule is an odd one as well, I have no idea whether taking multiple lords would be op but as you point out, DG don't have much in the way of HQ model choices. I don't really understand how some of the rules get through and the decisions behind them. The Forgeworld one was glaringly obvious, the jealousy one seemingly counter intuitive.
  15. The Plague Marine weapon change is a bit of a puzzler insofar as it complicates firing and melee with lots of individual rolls when GW's philosophy for 9th ed was to simplify and speed up the game. However it essentially means the Plague Marine boxset can be taken as a squad out of the box. The change has annoyed a lot of DG players if you read the DG facebook groups and reddits. Personally i should be fine, i don't think it'll cause me any problems model wise. You can take 7 plague marines in a squad but your weapon selection can only conform to the 5 man limit, the extra marines are bolter guys and are (in my mind at least) the first to die in the squad. Also, if you read the DG facebook and reddit groups, a lot of people expect the "Lord of the Death Guard" keyword to be removed for the DP in the faq. I can't say either way and seems to be a glaring oversight if it happens on GW's part, but then they did faq the ability to take Forgeworld units in DG armies, despite setting aside a specific section for DG units in the book. So anything's possible...
