Is it okay to use normal acrylic paints from arts and crafts stores on figures?

I wouldn't expect new models soon. The focus is clearly on churning out the new codices asap, and a fast-moving schedule would just make any new model releases old news too quickly.

I think the Swarmlord is a universal Tyranid thing. It's a stress-induced reaction by the Hivemind, and it has been seen fighting under multiple hive fleets (Behemoth being the primary one). It definitely doesn't have to be limited to Leviathan.

I got burnt out painting a bunch of gaunts a while ago, but these nid leaks are starting to inspire me, again. If Zoanthropes are actually worth taking now (Thanks to new Neurothropes), I'd definitely be excited to finish some things up.

Tyranids have never been about poor BS, they've leaned towards quantity dakka over quality. But since at least 3e have had a definite shooting capability thats more short range than inaccurate.

New White Dwarf looks good.

Lots of Necromunda stuff. Looks like base game plus supplements is £100. Some cool Necromunda terrain and bases, 25mm and 32mm. Both £4 for 10.

The citadel butt plug and water pot are £5.

More info on old houses of Necromunda and they say they're going to release some 'Old Beastman Bountyhunter' model for Necromunda but nothing in terms of model.

Tyranids stuff looks hype and lined up with leaks. Kronos looks most badass, it's strong vs psychic stuff and is making its way UP the great rift.

what do you think is better:
1: having 4+ armor, but one unit of genestealers is guarenteed to make a multi unit charge and will absolutely shred whatever they charge, while tarpitting anything they dont kill. Then the enemies retaliation will be heavily neutered

no one is gonna wipe 80 genestealers in a turn, but they have to, because they are literally better khorne beserkers with an invul save. If they finally get around to removing 80 of the fuckers they have 120 more bodies to try to get rid of, afterwards.

yes, they did that AND they were also cheap as shit so you still had a high damage army behind it AND while they are dealing with your conscripts they arnt affecting your damage dealers whatsoever

whereas with genestealers i'm doing both at the same time, if you can get them in turn 1 and shred things up you will be in a far better position than possiblyu waiting until turn 2 and taking a load of losses

yes your 3+ armor is going to save you against plasma and smite spam isnt it

you are math hammering far too hard if you think the only thing people have is bolters, you also think that the enemy needs to wipe you out in one turn

bubble wrapping isn't completely encirculing a unit and often models will have to leave the confines of the wrap to get to targets.

you dont even need a brigade with them because they dont get any expensive stratagems, so a batallion and supreme command suffices

>bubble wrapping isn't completely encirculing a unit and often models will have to leave the confines of the wrap to get to targets.

Yea, in Europe the price you see includes the taxes built into it, giving you nice round numbers for purchases.

America is steeped in the "JC Penny effect" wherein stores like JCP pull all sorts of stupid tricks to make you buy stuff you wouldn't normally buy.

For example: most sales are actually market price, with the alleged "true" price being back-calculated from The arbitrarily-chosen sale percentage. But people think they're getting a deal and so buy the item when they see the little red sign. Businesses that don't use this tactic tend to see a decrease in sales simply because the customer doesn't believe he's getting a deal.

Digital products can be more extreme because the seller doesn't actually 'lose' stock when holding actual sales. The best place to see this kind of thing in action is those people who buy games on Steam Summer Sales and never play them. If a game you wouldn't normally buy is on a 90% sale, and you buy it and three other games at this low, low price, how good is your deal? Well, if you play them it's 90%, but if you don't it's -100% simply because you have given someone money for something you never used.

you literally cannot move around them, if they take losses and they are consctripts there are tonnes to fill the gaps before your next turn

they dont need to wrap around any unit, thats not what bubble wrapping is, its to stop people getting to your backline, you seem to think its physically forming a circle around certain units so they cant be tar pitted, thats not how it is done mate

Get an airbrush. i live in really humid weather so can priming only works for 3 months out of the year.

Get a mini spray booth and the vallejo primer. Prime indoors 24/7 and when you do catch a whiff, it smells vaguely like candy.

an airbush setup is about the size as an xbox360, you have enough room

Well this pretty much confirms you have autism.

>> No.56143577

I might put that on the list for xmas, but I've finally got to a point with a brush that I am not luke-warm garbage.

Someone give me an idea to GS/kitbash something together for an intoxicating elixir. I have an EC termylord that will have it, and I want to make it visible.

Can be meme tier or serious, I'd say dubs decides but I think this thread is only 3 people and I'm not sure if I exist anymore

I'm fine having autism if it means I'm right, which it sounds like I am
It all makes sense now, constantly saying everyone on /tg/ sucks at 40k when you don't even play the game :^)

spray booths aren't always necessary. where are you gonna set it up?

Can you post how to make one? or is there a guide in the OP?

It needs to go on pic related, so I'm not sure where it'd go

There used to be a guide in the /wip/ thread, not sure if it's still there.

I bought mine because I have more money than motivation.

> where are you gonna set it up?

the only place i can set it up is in my room, which i'd want to do a good sized booth because fucking everything in there is cream coloured and i rent the house

>> No.56143646

Come on anon you're not fooling anyone, all you have to do is show one model you're working on, but you can't can you? All you can do is throw insults because you can't back up a single thing you say
Don't worry I'm here for a while since it's a slow day at work, I'll make sure you don't forget :^)

well, I use it with my airbrush, and cover the exhaust with an old tshirt. But if you're using rattle cans you definitely need to put the exhaust out of a window.

It's probably one of the best shows this year, subjectively speaking. I highly recommend it.

Is 10 hours a long time for painting? I usually get a marine done across 2 or 3 evenings.

>> No.56143881

I can usually push out a marine unit of 10 in 2 to 3 hours, not counting dry times.

>> No.56143888

10 hours per marine?

it depends how much detail you put into it, i can do a ~20 layer scion in about an hour

>> No.56143893

thumbs up you guys are right on this one.

converting this bad boy is easy if you happen to have plenty of matching talons lying around.

just ordered few boxes of carnifexen and reserved nid codex and datacards.

damn this is great and the leaks look good all around, feels great to be alive and slave to this wonderful hobby for once.

>> No.56144058

looks fuckin nice though bruv, good work

depends how you're doing it, if you're batch painting and just going spray, base, shade, highlight; your actual time investment per mini is pretty low maybe in the order of 20mins to half an hour once you average it out. But if every mini is their own individual fully detailed diorama that you're lovingly crafting one at a time.... then yeah it's gonna take fucking forever but if that's what you're into then go for it
