Re: new battleforce sets

I'd be really happy to buy the box, but i already have 20 odd stealth suits after an ebay accident, I really don't need another 6!

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

Mine has just arrived :biggrin:

Any tips on putting it together? Would you recommend magnetising the waist?

Re: What should I use as Farsights sword?

Re: 1500 point Longstrike and the Long shots

Ah yes, I forgot about the ability to ignore cover bonuses :) Anyway, you definitely need more Markerlights in your list if you ever want to use the Seeker missiles reliably. Think about adding 2x5 Pathfinder. I know they are no tanks (obviously lol) but any good tank squad needs some infantry spott...

Re: 1500 point Longstrike and the Long shots

I played an all vehicle list for the konor mission 3 match. Was very fun, but our smaller vehicles like the tetras and piranhas aren't very durable. However, I did take the fire support variant hammerhead (my opponent allowed proxies seeing as he was proxying a few venomthropes) with the twin heavy ...

Re: Skyray- leave it on the shelf?

It's BS starts at 3+ and can't be buffed. Whereas if you are taking longstrike and a couple of hammerheads, load them up with seeker missiles, keep them in Longstrike's bubble, get at least 2 markerlights on something and you have the same but more accurate. Edit: Obviously they cost more, but after...

Re: 1500 point mech Outrider force for Konor mission 3

Only just played this game due to some family issues. Ended up ditching the devilfish and taking a coldstar commander(for Mont'ka) and another piranha instead. Had 2 of my piranhas with fusion blasters and only 1 seeker missile. Oh, and swapped the 2nd railhead for a twin heavt burst cannon variant....

Re: ATT Gamefinder : Post & PM

Oxford, UK area for me.

I just started playing 40k and usually head into the cuty centre on Wednesdays to play a game with the Oxford Outriders. Plenty of 40k, heresy, AoS and Saga players there.

Re: I'm afraid of painting Tau tanks.

Acrylic paints are opaque, meaning that they are slightly translucent, and thus colors underneath will effect the look/brightness of the finished color. Sorry, I don't mean to distract from what was a well thought out, detailed and helpful post. But opaque and translucent mean different things. Opa...

Oh, and we've already agreed that I will be attacking, and my opponent will be defending with his Tyranids.

Let me know what you think. FYI, the reason I'm taking the devilfish is that I don't have any other HH or piranhas. ++ Outrider Detachment +1CP (T'au Empire) [74 PL, 1500pts] ++ + HQ + Longstrike : 2x MV1 Gun Drone, Railgun, 2x Seeker missile + Fast Attack + Tetra Scout Speeder Team . 2x Tetra Scout...

Re: Confused by magnets!

Yeah, but as I said, I also use 2x1mm ones to stabalise. Can you clarify what you mean by this? I don't know too much about magnets. Are you stabilizing the gun, or something else? This is what I mean. http://i.imgur.com/4OxgOSt.jpg As you can see from the image, the arms each have 2 magnets and th...

Re: Confused by magnets!

I used the same strength magnets on my suits. I ended up using 3x1 mm ones on the forearms and 2x1 mm ones on the elbow joints. It certainly stops the floppy gun issue *snigger* but doesn't look quite so neat. Bearing in mind all of mine are old XV8's. Good luck! There are some great magnetising gu...

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

I only own the old XV8's so I used the modernisation guide someone on the orbital made. It's a really good way to help make it obvious who is the commander.

I was even able to pick up the Coldstar jets in a bits buy on ebay and so I'm kitbashing a Coldstar commander as well.

Coldstar pose

Hey all, I'm looking for tips on posing a Coldstar Commander. I'm currently (mostly) following the XV8 moderisation guide to make my commanders. In a bitz bag I found the jets and fins to make a Coldstar Commander. I love the look of these models, but really don't have the cash to buy one. Fortunate...

Re: <HELP NEEDED> Vespid Conversion

I've got some greenstuffthat is a good number of years old and it still works for me. If you have the GW stuff I recommend not using the strip down the middle where the blue and yellow join. This area will have already reacted and hardened slightly. I'm working on trying to mimic the Paulson jetpack...
