    That looks great! Do you have any pictures of the others (sorry I’ve been loving looking at these all weekend as they get posted around the place)?

    The latest update appears to have go rid of the hidden icon, there’s still lots of feedback but that was pretty damn useful. edit: and now it’s back, odd

    Got trapped in a shitty loop last night. Get attacked by a couple of goons in a mission, no way to avoid the fight, but the area is heavily populated by civilians and I must have clipped one of them because they started getting involved. I’m trying to ignore them because they’re not armed & just focus on the attackers. Because civilians are involved some soldiers get involved, they have weapons so I fight back. The civilians stay arming themselves with weapons they pick up and attacking my, so I defend myself. I finish this fight with two bounty hunters after me. I take a step and the first turns up, while fighting that one the second shows up. I get killed, reload and I’m at the end of the fight with two bounty hunters coming for me and no money to pay off the bounty. What followed was a bunch of unfun fights and reloads. I was eventually able to make it to the person that held the bounty and kill them - a guard in the local leader’s house, so that wasn’t simple either. After eventually sorting it out and doing the next part of the mission I came across one of the bounty hunters in the street and cut them down. Didn't like the bounty hunter system in Origins, don’t like it in this. There’s enough to do without interrupting things.

    Black Library, anyone a fan?

    Nah, that one is just very poorly written imo anyway. I found it a right struggle after books by Abnett & ABD, it was just so overwritten with McNeill seemingly trying to show off how big his vocabulary is in every sentence. I’ve gotten back into the HH books this year, starting honestly as a bit of escapism from reality. I first started reading them when they came out, but fell off the wagon after a few years. I picked up where I left off with Deliverance Lost which came out at the start of 2012, and I’m now on Master of Mankind from 2017. I haven’t read every book in there, I’ve been looking at guides & threads to read the ones “essential” to the overall narrative, and other threads that interest me - 11 so far. Betrayer is my favourite of the bunch this year, but Master of Mankind is so far very interesting - loving the glimpses into the Emperor’s past.

    lol, yup. As I’ve mentioned before I’m taking some lessons, trying to improve. It’s quite a good setup involving Skype and sending lots of photos. Last night we started work on one of Banshee’s Anonymous busts, using this photo as inspiration. So last night’s session was laying down some base tones with the airbrush. As someone who’s still new to the whole airbrush thing I’m still not that confident the paint is going to end up where I think it should - after getting the blue down there was a lot of breath holding with the red. Edit: the colours are a bit more vibrant in real life, especially the red. I think I need to look at that thing about white balance that was linked around here.

    The limit of four skill is going to become a bit of a pain, now I’ve unlocked a fifth. Is it now a case of going to the screen to reassign skills regularly? Are most of you just sticking to a core four and ignoring others?

    From what they were saying on the Waypoint podcast it sounds like the review code had the permanent XP boost enabled, but only on one platform.

    Very nice! Armour looks like it’s from Mass Effect both in style & paint. Where’s it from?
  11. Everyone I know there these days works on CSR. Thanks for the info, I’m sure we were told we’d need an engineer, this was during Fable 2’s dev nothing official just kept running into NM people at events and them trying to get us to use it. Maybe just after the MS money Oh yeah, I’d completely forgotten about Morpheme.
  12. The limitation wasn't so much on their ability to provide engineers so much as it made it far more expensive to use than any alternative since as well as the licensing cost you'd also be paying an additional engineer's salary. I think R* did have exclusivity for a while but NM were aggressively pushing it for a while.
  13. Yeah, exactly that. Speaking to them round that time using it basically came with a full time engineer in your office to work with you to integrate it and keep it working. From what I understand Natural Motion are making a lot of money from their mobile games like CSR.

    Would have killed for some of that stuff back when I played Necro

    Because I’m a mad man I decided to start that head again… it’s my white whale! Think I’m putting down now despite the errors I can see in the photos. The blend along the jaw looks far smoother to the naked eye. Speaking of eyes they have more paint on them than the forth bridge - dot... dot.. dot.. no! Splat, start again.
