Re: Broadside Conversion- Brute Head and Magnetized Gun

his lens looks beautiful. Did you base it with moot green then do a "highlight" with the dark green to get that effect?

Coldstar Commander usage?

So I havent decided how to build up my commander kit, and I wanted some opinions about the Coldstar suit. It's nice looking enough but I was wary about having fixed weapons and how it might be used on the field as a FMC-with-nerfs. So I just wanted to strike up conversation with folks who might have...

Re: Best starting point to get back in the game.

The Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre would be a good box to start with. The Start Collecting box might be another good compliment, but with FE you field your suits as troops so you don't technically need any FWs. What you might want though is "The Eight" which is a FE formation of Farsight an...

Re: Quick Multi Tracker question...

The other important issue in 7th is you don't need to move to get a jink save, so you can stay put and fire all weapons at full BS until someone actually shoots at you. That brings me back... used to run 2 eldar tanks kitted out basically the same just so they could 'swap places' with each other du...

Re: Why not more tanks?

Even the bloody Fire Team rule teases you into having 3 or no tanks... I mean.. The new Tidewall Gunrig for 85 pts or whatever is enticing, its terrain, it has the BS of whatever is riding it, it's twin-linked, and it moves. Then again, the HH is still a 3HP vehicle with respectable armor and mobili...

Re: Why not more tanks?

Well, you're not wrong. I got into the hobby with nids, got horrendously annoyed at the hormagaunt model (slotta bases that rely on one hoof?!) and was on to Eldar after that. When Tau came around I liked them well enough but they just felt off. As you said Battlesuits were cool but not 'hot'. The t...

Re: Why not more tanks?

I mean, they're still armor, and not all threats address that the same as they would a fancy jetpack monstrous creature. It's like the Wraithknight. Only time I saw one was in an escalation league, for beginners, at a new store, but the guy was a jerk, tabled a bunch of new players, and I agreed to ...

Re: Magnets on bases question

My Skitarii friend put an order in to an Aus website for a fairly impressive sized foam transport case, and offered for me to add another one to his order for cheaper postage, so I took up the offer. I like the idea pf the metal transport case, but for things like Riptides, Stormsurges and Ghostkee...

Re: Tau Broadside magnetized

Neat. I never thought to add a spot on my piranha for a Seeker Missile but the kit didn't come with one, either.. Question on the broadside though. I'll be unboxing my first one in the next couple weeks and I was wondering about the mag on the railgun: my thought was I could magnetize where the arm ...

Re: [How to] Magnetize a Riptide.

Great job on this. I magenetized my riptide partially and did a conversion on the jumpjets to make them look like wings, sadly never occured to me to magnetize that. Carrying him around would be simpler if I had...

Re: Why not more tanks?

The simple answer: new suits are the new hotness and the old tanks are old..yay capitalism - which is ironic when you're playing an army of space-communists with cleft hooves. Whats the statline on the forgeworld plasma cannon for the Hammerhead anyway? My thing is I have 2 hammerheads/fish, 2 piran...
