Re: Transporting bigger suits

You could do the little metal tool box idea and glue some magnets on the bottom. Would keep them from sliding around during transport unless you’re HALO jumping or something lol

Re: [WIP] Tutorial - Magnetisation

Say hypothetically the magnet flipped on you so now the polarity is wrong... how would you go about fixing that without destroying the whole piece? Asking for a friend ;)

Re: Puppetswar Weapon and Head size comparison

Puppets of War is pretty good. They do end up with miscasts some times where the mold shifted but their customer service is really good and will typically send replacements. The heads can be a little small comparatively to a normal FW Head... so keep that in mind.

Re: Longfist's Cadre Painting log. (updated w/ Longstrike)

What did you use for the part that connects to the HH Ion cannon part? The little bit in the back? (Not the part that hangs on the bottom of a Broadside RR)

Re: Airbrush advice

I have the the Iwata Neo CN for about 8 years now. (Well technically on my second one because I got a little overzealous tightening the tip back on and broke the threads off in it. :( ) Aside from that I only really use the small bowl because as name giver said it’s easy to add more. So my big bowl ...

Re: How to deal with Nids?

So mostly an “elite” army? Not a “horde”? I’d say load up on Fusion, some Flamer Crisis for Overwatch, Breachers (since he’s pretty much coming to you) or cheap Kroot to bubble wrap/act as speed bumps. Maybe a SS they are very situational and in kind of a weird spot right now as is most of our units...

Re: How to deal with Nids?

What kind of Nids are you facing? It might help if you have us a rough idea as to what models/characters they are using and potential points. Also are the models you listed all the models you own?

Re: [IceFall's 13,000+ points] The 'Margin' Cadre

First off looking good. My two cents would be to get an airbrush medium (it’ll help make the paint come out smoother like Vallejo airbrush thinner) and to deal with splattering if you take an old toothbrush and run the tip of your airbrush over it it’ll take off the paint build up and prevent splatt...

I personally like his pose. It’s kind of a “ok who lost their scanner? Grab your battle buddy and come see me in my office” or “this is why we can’t have nice things”

I really love that fire blade. I would love to see the WIP and a breakdown of how you painted them.

There’s one in particular that I couldn’t find atm where it was Shadowsuns body with the fire blades arms. Or I’d take a look at the “Greater Good “ line by some company that I can’t remem...

Re: Do you paint in batches, or one-by-one?

I do mine by batches of color. So prime a bunch of things then base coat, then secondary color (all by airbrush) and maybe a third color (still by air brush) then go through with a brush and do one model at a time.

Re: [WIP] Cadre Fireblade conversion

From my experience it depends on how thick the green stuff is and the application and the general temperature of the room. I've never made anything with it I have used it to gap fill before which is typically pretty thin but even then it'll probably be about a few hours before it's solid enough to h...

Re: [WIP] Cadre Fireblade conversion

A touch of Vaseline (or a similar product) keeps it from being too tacky, easier to smooth out, downside is that it increases the curing time (but not by a whole lot from what I can tell)

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

The Hammerhead doesn't have the burst Cannon turret under the nose that the 'Fish has. But you can still call it a Fish, or buy the bitz off eBay and magnetize that sucker.

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

What an interesting time to join Tau :D I would agree with you Pathfinders are a pretty good addition, as is a Devilfish(or two, but honestly I'd say get the Hammerhead/Sky ray kit, because the tank body is the same) For sure magnetize your Crisis suits. (Can't stress that enough) also the drones. J...
