    The Random WoW Thread

    I cancelled my sub and it finished yesterday. The final straw was having to do an LFR to progress the main story (horde side), even if you're not into raiding. Was enjoying the story, not necessarily the expansion, but having to do the raid was a bit galling and killed it for me.

    If you're into eBay they're always on sale there for a few pounds.

    Not wishing to pile in on the whole "Ben thing" but he couldn't string a coherent sentence together this week and must have started every sentence about 3 times. I'm not sure i could do any better, and he seems a nice enough guy but, every sentence... They also need to jazz up the format a bit; when it's the same 3-4 guys every week talking about pretty much the same things it becomes increasingly dull before you've even factored in Ben's interruptions and Brad's weariness at life in general. I'm not advocating they get a guest in every week but when they it's far more interesting. I admit i only watch the stuff they put out on Youtube so may be they're a bit more interesting in UPF's etc but the actual Bombcast is pretty dull atm.

    Not officially. People post stuff on eBay and there are a few places online that break boxes up but you can't order them from Games Workshop.

    There are sites that break up the sprues and sell them separately along with ebayers of course which is where I thought I might find them as long as I knew where they came from. However the Lord of Skulls is a £95 gw website exclusive so nobody's making much of a profit on the bits from that. I did find a couple of old posts selling them but I reckon they'll be hard to find separate. The Blood Tanks as they're called, don't seem to be optional so most people will use them when building the Lord of Skulls.

    Does anyone know where the ornate water tanks(?) in the bottom right of this picture come from? ...and again on the top of this conversion (although they don't seem to be using the hatches so may be they're separate?) I've had a look online, i thought it might be part of some scenery set but can't seem to see where they're from.

    I've eventually caught a Ditto, it's only taken me about 4 months of shitty RNG.

    I'm sure this is how I played Warhammer Fantasy in like 1991; well from what i remember. Had my first game on wednesday. Helped the owner of the independent wargaming store in his game against the Alpha Legion. We nearly got tabled and the last Lemun Russ was on 2 wounds at the end but we won on points! Really enjoyed it although i was getting a little lost as they whizzed through the dice rolls. Not that they weren't explaining it; it was just a lot to take in and i was a bit tired as well. Hoping to get back next wednesday, home plans permitting, but i'll have to try and tag along in another match cos my painting is going slow, 4 plague marines done out of 7 and the rest of the Dark Imperium boxset Death Guard to go

    Finally got 2 Death Guard done. I've ballsed loads up (need to improve my fleshy bits); they won't win any awards but I'm happy with the result after not doing any miniature painting in some 25+ years. (I've linked my tweet cos for some reason it's not letting me upload reduced size jpegs) Obviously the biggest change since I did any painting is the amount of information available, mainly on the web and the expansive set of Citadel paints now, particularly in Technical/FX paints.

    Yeah I've got the app and obviously the paint guide from the Dark Imperium box set. When I ordered my paints I think I got caught between the two and didn't have a full set to follow either :d I think I just need to find a style that suits a limited palette and some combinations of layer and shades that work. I like your Helbrute for example

    Is there a particularly decent online forum for painting/tactics/etc for 40k? Something akin (dare I say) to rllmuk as I assume official forums and Reddit can a bit of a shit show? I'm slowly but surely assembling the Death Guard from the Dark Imperium box set and have 2 Plague Marines 70% painted. I knew the models were detailed but I'm finding I don't quite have the paints to pick out all the details I'd like to. The Death Guard seem prone to lots of detail since they have fleshy appendages/teeth poking out everywhere as well as grenades, ammo, straps etc. It may in the long run, work out fine as I do find the officially painted Death Guard to be a bit "busy" for my liking, some of the form and shape gets a bit lost, the paint jobs posted in this thread do a better job imo.

    My interest is starting to wane. Despite catching the right type, I still haven't caught a Ditto and I'm slowly trudging towards been able to evolve an evolved grass type. RNG can suck my balls.

    Yeah, I don't have the money to pay someone else and I think half the fun is painting the models yourself, even though i'm not very good.

    I broke and have ordered the Dark Imperium box and Death Guard Codex from a local independent game store. They have a 15% discount on the box too which sweetened the deal. The store owner seems a nice chap and they run gaming nights through the week, he even offered to do a run through of a game sometime to help me get going. Pick them up next Friday as they didn't have them in stock and that's the next time I can get through. Squee!
