Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

I'm also 99% sure the SR/HH/DF kit should include a separate sprues for the 2 gun drones, so blame the seller I'd say. Definitely no gun drone sprues in mine. Strangely, there were a couple of drone sized fly based, though. Saw an unboxing video on YouTube that also didn't have any gun drones, but ...

Re: CIB Crisis Suit Unit Choices

Thank you for the confirmation, it pretty much tallies up with my thoughts, and it really comes down to weather you get the points back for the investment made when going close or above the 300pts mark. The Stimulent was really because I only have a max of 8 CIBs so can't stretch to 9. The maths fo...

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

Yup, that's what I'm talking about. I'll give it a go in a few days and see if it all works out. Thanks again.

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

Have you got photos as that does not sound correct I was wrong, my bad. The hammerhead turret does friction-fit OK, but while the hole is technically the right size for the Skyray turret, there is no way friction-fit will keep it in place. Definitely going to have to do something (probably magnetiz...

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

- How do I best magnetize the turret itself to the body? Is there anything special I should do for the Devilfish other than just use the HH turret with no gun attached? Mine did not require magnets as it was a snug fit so I can't offer any real advice I did not have a Problem with The skyray and ha...

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

Here are some photos showing how I went about it but I still need to sort out the written explanation :( Thanks, El'mo. I already found that tutorial, and while it was extremely helpful, it didn't really answer my questions regarding the drones or the turret pieces themselves. Couldn't figure out w...

Re: Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

Watch out for the slight gap around the side hatches when you’re putting it together, definitely will need green stuff. Also you can clean the lines up with some liquid green stuff. I actually hadn't noticed a gap, the side hatches fit pretty solidly against the body. I'll double-check when I get h...

Hammerhead Modelling and Magnetization

So I've gotten my hands on an old Hammerhead kit (which, apparently, they are ALL old). I plan on magnetizing so that I can convert on the fly between HH, Skyray (might be useful, someday), and Devilfish, and while the pinned Magnetization tutorial post has proven somewhat helpful, it is still very ...

Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

I may end up with 3 extra xv15's..... if I do, I have one xv8 I couldn't decide what to do with and converting it into a second ghostkeel by sticking two stealthsuits on top of the first suit's shoulders with a drone hat for each of the stealth suits sounds...... possibly funny enough to be worth b...

Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

I would say the key from what others are saying and my own analysis is in recognizing where the Ghostkeel sits within your own unit set, but also more generally within the T'au arsenal as a whole. This is a fair summary. The Ghostkeel has a cofiguration to suit anyone's taste and playstyle, and tha...

Re: Ghostkeel tactica

A Velocity Tracker is also monstrously powerful against hovertanks like Repulsors and Wave Serpents. +1 to hit and no Hard to Hit penalty means you can easily get 2+ re-rolling against a priority target. Exactly. And what I meant by "flyer" was anything with the "fly" keyword, o...

Re: Ghostkeel tactica

I like running the all FusionKeel with a Velocity Tracker. I figure, if he's gonna be hard pressed to make up his points anyway, specialize him even further towards flyers, of which there are many. Suddenly you are a great flyer hunter hitting on 3+ with 3 to 5 shots, possibly with re-roll 1s assumi...

Re: Warhammer Community match

Haven't had a chance to watch the Twitch video of the match yet, but I don't think its fair to call us "punching bags." We still have some bite in us, and honestly I've been wondering how we'd stack up to Custodes, so I'm glad they did this one. Thought for the day, last time they brought ...
