Re: Mont'ka and Kauyon Special rules. How to use?

Pretty sure they are one use unless you have Shadowsun or Farsight. Then you get an extra one. (Pretty sure)

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

I’ll try and answer them in order as best as I can. More often than not Commanders will put missile pods on the HH to kind of match the range better than gun drones will (unless they are trying to keep them cheap...) As for the Skyray bit there’s a lot of extra weight from the wings and all the miss...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

So homing beacon delivery system, after that they are a kind of fun/annoying (depending on which side of the table you are on :D ) objective camper. The amount of shots they put out is pretty good, the utility of being able to take a Fusion to throw around is good too. You don’t have to worry about ...

Re: Deciding on layouts for Broadside Unit (and choosing commanders)

I think it depends on what army you’ll be facing. If it’s something that will get in your face quick probably Plasma, but if they are foot slogging, or out of LoS then SMS would be better. So it would be very situational. Honestly the Secondaries are easy to magnetize it’s the main weapon that’s har...

Re: Returning Tau player with some hobby questions!

You can try and magnetize your drones as well. There’s a tutorial around here somewhere. You basically cut the little nub off (that goes into the drone top) and drill a little hole for a magnet. Then shove one into the drone top and presto it’s done. Unless you have pre-owned drones and they are alr...

Re: Deciding on layouts for Broadside Unit (and choosing commanders)

As of right now a lot of our units in weird spots until our Codex drops. Broadsides as HYMP are still good just not worth their points. Coldstars are good as Assasins (there’s a thread somewhere on here about running 2 of them so I’d say build 2 of them and you can “proxy” the other one as a normal ...

Re: Returning Tau player with some hobby questions!

A few things could be done. 1. Since they are old it’s possible the glue has gotten brittle so they might just pop off. 2. You can slice them off (because honestly you’re going to end up cutting the knob off anyways to magnetize it). And I would probably remove the weapons before if possible. That w...

Re: Vior'la sept - Agrax vs Nuln Oil

So the Nuln Oil gives it a dark oily look while the Agrax is more of a dirt/muddy look.

Re: Airbrushing indoors

It’s kind of a personal preference. Me personally I don’t use ventilation unless it’s primer. Mostly because the fumes aren’t too bad (if at all but maybe it depends on your paint like the GW/Vallejo because they don’t have aerosol in them) and you’re blowing away from yourself. You definitely want ...

Re: Budget airbrush & garage compressor setup advice

For cleaning, get a proper cleaning pot if you don’t have one. After emptying the cup I usually spray some water through to get the worst out, then put a bit of Medea Airbrush Cleaner through to get rid of the rest, then rinse out with some water again before putting some more paint in. Only takes ...

Re: Budget airbrush & garage compressor setup advice

Honestly it depends. If you finish air brushing and go immediatelyish to the bath room and start cleaning it, hot water pretty much takes care of everything. If you leave it and wait a couple of days it’s a little harder. Honestly the hardest part to clean (for me) is the little nozzle. So I do have...

Re: Budget airbrush & garage compressor setup advice

I use the normal GWs (not the air line) and I typically get good results from a 1:1:1. Water:Paint:Vajello thinner. Although white is typically tricker. Most colors that mixture should be fine.

How many Fire Warriors is too many?

So I have enough models and parts to build 24 FW/Breachers comfortably. Have bits to probably cobble another 10ish together. My question is how many should I do of each? I.e. how many are Breachers, Carbine wielding FW and Rifle wielding FW? I honestly don’t know my meta but I don’t think people wil...

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
