    This is a pretty cool chaos space marine model available to pre-order, shipping on 15th which should be plenty of time: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Haarken-Worldclaimer-2018 I don't play 40k so can't comment on if he'd be any good in the game or not, looks pretty sweet though.

    Doing my first ever space marine which I got with the Conquest magazine. Decided to do my first one in (what I understand to be) the traditional style. I very much regret this decision because edge highlighting is infuriating. Keep seeing bits I've missed or which need tidied up, definitely not doing the rest this way. Tried out the Armageddon Dunes texture paint which I think is a waste of money, was very fiddly to apply and sand and rocks are cheaper. Any ideas on how to paint this (and any criticisms) appreciated. WIP:

    Cheers, bit annoying for those who don't have enough gear to warrant a conversion kit! I'll see about picking some of the bits up on ebay.

    Question for X-Wingers: I currently own both the red and blue 1.0 core sets plus a 1.0 Millenium Falcon. I got a 2.0 Slave 1 which I saw at a good price and wanted the model for display. I know very little about the changes from 1.0 to 2.0. Can I play with my Slave 1 in 1.0 or would I need to buy the correct cards/dial from somewhere? Where might I buy these if needed? If I ever decide to move to 2.0 what would I need to cover these ships? Would 1 2.0 core set cover both my original ones? Then just find the relevant 2.0 bits for MF? I'm not precious about my x-wings looking different, happy to pretend T-70s are T-65s.

    Brilliant @And, you've definitely done the model justice. Painting a glowy thing in the barrel of his gun to make it look like he's shooting would be cool.

    What are you playing?

    Letters from Whitechapel Played this for the first time last night with my partner. She played Jack and I played the 5 police investigators. For those who don't know, it's a hidden movement game. There are 4 rounds or "nights", on each of a which Jack commits a murder (with 2 murders on the third night). The police know Jack's starting point each night and must rush to close him in and capture him before he escapes back to his hideout. We really enjoyed the game. This is the longest of the 2 or 3 games my partner has yet played and it kept both of us engaged the whole way through. I caught Jack on the third night. He had made the mistake of choosing a victim too close to his lair on the first night which gave the investigators a good lead on his whereabouts. Despite the balance being a bit off due to my experience with other similar games (and games in general), Jack managed to give me the runaround for another couple of nights and it was a pretty lucky guess that led to his capture. Nail-biting stuff at times The board and rule book (which is excessively wordy for a pretty simple game) are drenched in theme, plenty of blood splashes, extracts and letters from Jack's gruesome story. Stuck on a horror soundtrack playlist for added tension. This is a purer hidden movement game than Fury of Dracula or Specter Ops, both of which I loved. Jack has few special abilities to play and once he is caught, the game is up. That in mind, although the game says it supports up to 6 players, with each player taking one policeman-officer, I think it would be pretty dull (and lengthy) at such a high player count. Outside of moving and listing off numbered spaces around your pawn, there is nothing else to do on your turn as an investigator, whereas there is the option of special abilities and combat in the other HM games I've played. I would recommend this game for 2-3 players only. More than anything, I'm happy to be getting my partner into games as, with 2 young kids and a busy job, I don't always get to attend board game night with my friends. Much prefer to sit in on a weekend night and spend some quality time like this rather than sit in front of the TV. I knew this would go down well as I knew she was interested in the theme, having been to the London Dungeon and recently watching the Whitechapel series on Netflix. Eyeing up Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle next, end goal is getting to play something like Shadespire or X-Wing (or opening my Gloomhaven box!).

    I'd have a heart attack
  11. Looking good, I find painted figures really enhances this type of game.

    Bargain buys for everyone.

    I got Exoplanets. Looks like a pretty game but probably not my thing. Don't think I got tricked though!

    I'm more than happy if I get to paint for an hour or two per week, life is pretty hectic at the moment. I know I won't improve much in that time so my goal is to speed up my per model time and not get any worse. In a year or two when I have more time I'll get to learning the more advanced techniques. Currently on the last model of my Imperial Assault core set, which I started to paint about 1.5 years ago. Pics of the set coming soon! Really looking forward to moving onto some better sculpted models.
