So I picked up a tau battleforce and some plastic glue. I plan to stick it together tomorrow, any tips?
[QUOTE=little.sparrow;34718284]So I picked up a tau battleforce and some plastic glue. I plan to stick it together tomorrow, any tips?[/QUOTE] Create a nightmarish amalgamation of different tau limbs and call it Ball of Arms Man.

Do that and file the points where you used cutters, and you'll have some nice models.
So I just finished painting my first model. Qritique is appreciated. [IMG]http://i39.tinypic.com/1yvj1j.jpg[/IMG] I literally have no idea how people can make these tiny men look so fantastic. I sure as hell cannot. Any tips on how to not suck?
I'm thinking about making an interesting conversion. Anyone know how I could possibly make a "drill" model suitable for replacing a space marine's hand? [img]http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h153/SupremeGrandMaster/IMGP2863.jpg[/img] Like this guy's left hand, only wider in dimension and scaled down to fit the regular 40k models.

Plus Greenstuffing and plasticard?

I suggest using a detail brush with mithril silver on the edges of the hammer and the chaos icon, and if you have the patience, try using a lighter brown and a brighter black on the respective areas.
Large amount of people here i've seen seen before, awesome. Anyway, i have started work on the updated thread (Not uploaded though) - i've made these in about 5 min in paint because i was bored. [t]http://i.imgur.com/kUoL9.png[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/3EQiF.png[/t] Anyone think these would be worth including?
Anyone have tips for a Black Templar army? Decided to finally get into 40K but I'm still a bit hesitant to go with a BT army mainly just due to being a new player and all.
Erhm, I haven't read their codex, but from what I have heard, try to include the biggest horde of angry marines geared for close combat you can and you should do okay. They should be quite okay for regular games, but not totally geared for tournaments.
BT don't even have a 5e codex I thought? I know there's lots of bitching about the MEQ chapters having fucked up codexes, isn't there ONLY standard, vampirefaggots, and wolffaggots? [sp]Actually viking spehss mehrines are pretty cool but since this codex is imbalanced as hell they have a bad rap right now[/sp]

As for updates in 5e the online FAQ fills in bits here and there in the BT that have changed.
[QUOTE=RoboWolf;34723156]Anyone have tips for a Black Templar army? Decided to finally get into 40K but I'm still a bit hesitant to go with a BT army mainly just due to being a new player and all.[/QUOTE] Get Assault Squads (remove some of the jetpacks for Crusaders) and Melee Scouts. Lots of them.

[/QUOTE] What should I highlight the black with? Just a really dark grey? Oh yeah the bases are coming, just haven't really decided on how to model them. I'm thinking snow.

Thank you guys for the suggestions, keep them coming, I need the help.

As for updates in 5e the online FAQ fills in bits here and there in the BT that have changed.[/QUOTE] Black Templars are better than Vanilla SM in a few ways though. 1)Accept any Challenge vow gives every unit but Neophytes re-rolls to hit (Preferred Enemy) 2)All Terminators can get either Tank Hunters or Furious Charge for 3+ pts each. So now your Terminators strike enemy Terminators and Marines first, and they do a shit ton of damage with the 1+ strength bonus and re-rolls to wound from LC's. 3)The Emperors Champion is only 90 pts, (granted, you have to get a vow with him) and he is one of the few Space Marine Characters that strikes at I5 and WS6 with a weapon that isn't S4. His Sword gives him S6. He also has a 2+ save and a 4+ Invuln. 4)Their Marshall (BT Captain) gets a choice of anything from a huge armoury, almost twice the goodies that the Vanilla Captains get, and for 20 pts cheaper, because barebones marshalls only cost 80 pts. Oh, and they give every unit LD 10, making Righteous Zeal tests even more dangerous. 5)Righteous Zeal lets them move forward an extra D6 when shot at. 6)20 Man squads. In a Space Marine army. 7)Not even the FAQ changed the fact that BT Multi Meltas, Melta Guns and Las Cannons have AP1.
I put together two of the gun drones. [img]http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/5821/img0244o.jpg[/img] I had to pop the parts out by hand, leaving those damn marks. I also overdid the glue a little bit on the left one. No matter, I can paint over them eventually. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] And jesus christ, the glue dries quicker than I thought

Even rough highlighting helps the look of even a basic miniature a lot.
Are all the different race campaigns in Retribution pretty much the same?
[QUOTE=sirpopsalot_;34729707]Are all the different race campaigns in Retribution pretty much the same?[/QUOTE] Yeah, although there are slight differences in rewards, and the Tyranids get a bonus mission that the other races don't get.
[QUOTE=gamerman345;34729814]Yeah, although there are slight differences in rewards, and the Tyranids get a bonus mission that the other races don't get.[/QUOTE] Well that's rather disappointing, I was hoping they'd pretty much all be unique
[QUOTE=joost1120;34664447]Alright guys. What's your favourite Chaos god, if any.[/QUOTE] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12875849/reactions/malalworship.jpg[/img] [QUOTE=people]rules talk[/QUOTE] You guys talking about the ones made for shits and giggles by someone on /tg/?
most relic/THQ games are shit. DOW and CoH were good but most other stuff by them is too arcadey or made for the "we're trying to open our game to wider audiences" which basically means "we want the COD players for money". I mean they spent I think around 3 years on Space Marine and ended up releasing a game which only looked like it could of taken under a year to make with terrible console themed controls and multiplayer. Their RTS games usually involved rehashed shit like the infamous SS and DOWII campaigns. [editline]17th February 2012[/editline] oh and they want to put rts elements in all their games and they wonder why they're a failing trademark
Just finished the Ork campaign in Retribution. The last cutscene is the greatest thing ever.

why does he never put the backpacks on the models just use the body group stool fuck sake or is it supposed to be part of the gimmick kill dem barbarians actually you could pretend skyrim is a recruiting world for marines and marines are supposed to be in their mythology.
needs more bolters and make orks attack you hell often
[QUOTE=Gunner th;34733054][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-vEvehE-Hg&feature=g-all-u&context=G2dea09bFAAAAAAAAAAA[/media][/QUOTE] For a Daemonhammer (Thunder Hammer?), it doesn't seem very effective against bandits.
An astartes and a thunder hammer would make a red paste with bandits.
needs to do 1K damage a hit [editline]17th February 2012[/editline] to be canonical of course
