Re: Why are Gun Lines so damm effective???

I've also found that if my opponent brings a TAC list that he built before they knew they were facing Tau they'll also be fielding a fair amount of units that just don't do much against us. This basically puts them at a points disadvantage before the game even starts (because their poor matchup unit...

Re: Akul Contingent

You have some of the most effective looking cloaking effects I have seen painted on models. The bright transition really sets it apart. Thanks I really appreciate that! Finally got my magnets and greenstuff in the mail so I could continue working on my Stormsurge... here's the pose I ended up with....

Re: How do you actually deal with AV14 ?

My standard operating procedure for landraiders is to ignore them and feed whatever comes out of them a few squads of kroot or fire warriors while I win elsewhere. I've found this to be more effective than killing them for the most part. If they really must die though. Y'vahras as previously stated ...

Re: Akul Contingent

I'm thinking of cutting a huge whole in the hellbrute, basically a "U" like cut removing the head and up of the hellbrute while the stormsurge is stomping it into the ground and having the stormsurge's gun where its missile pods usually are pointed down at the hellbrute like it just blew i...

Re: Akul Contingent

I've actually had a few people not recognize it as a ghostkeel because the pose is so different from the stock pose, which makes me quite happy.

Need to buy magnets

I was wondering what magnets to you guys recommend and where to buy them? Same with green stuff. In the past the hobby store owner just ordered in magnets for me, but I moved this last summer and can't get them from him anymore. Sadly I never asked him what ones he bought so I'm kind of needing some...

Re: Akul Contingent Batreps

Yah, thinking that was rather bleak - though, Vindicare Assassin? Hurh? - is he using Allies just to pick up that character? Nicely played - just gritting your teeth and rolling forward tends to knock the steam out of an early rush for your opponent. He wasn't using a vindicare, I was. It was one o...
