Thank. The bodies are palanite enforcers with the chest indent filled with greenstuff. The heads are a mix of tacticals, intercessors and hellblasters. The hands are from a bunch of kits, mostly tacticals. Gubbins like grenades and holsters are again, from all over the place, including the old csm box.
If you plan to make your own - keep in mind that the hand and head mounting points are fucky and will require some cutting. For the heads I found that just cutting the neck stump in line with the collar to be the easiest way.

Age of Sigmar is better than 40k, hands down. The rules are tighter, the difference between hitting, wounding, rending, and saving are flatter which means it's better balanced, the spells are a lot more fun, the command points are handled infinitely better, and the armies are just a lot more interesting with actual good looking models with less potential for 'soup' shenanigans.

The mate I "sold" my Custodes is returning them back, since he didn't enjoy the hobby.
Ever since I sold my Custodes I've improved in my painting skills and even started to turn some old minis in to "true-scale" (like Chaos Warriors from AoS/Fantasy).
I checked the sprues of the Custodes and checked the piece that connects the torso to the legs is actually pretty big, which means just adding a tiny ball of greenstuf in between is all would take to greatly increase its height, without needing to extend anything else.
I checked some paintings only and tried to see how it would check, proportion-wise.
What do you guys think?
The one with the regular size (right), seems like in the height proportions is in scale (with the manlet body) but it width doesn't, which makes it similar to the old Space Marine models.

Already surpassed every other fantasy game including Fantasy. I'll also bet that AoS is outselling 40k. It would explain why AoS gets good rules & good looking models consistently whereas they hardly try with 40k as if they've consigned defeat & is using PA to try to get it back above AoS in terms of sales but is failling miserably. For the brainlets:this doesn't mean 40k is doing bad in sales but instead is doing worse than AoS as GW's money maker.

Pretty good. A bit worse than they were a while ago since Marines came in but they have a ton of options and several viable builds. They're quite competitive and their codex still holds up. They're getting an update next month too.
>and what the fuck is psychic awakening.
A series of campaign books loosely themed around some humans awakening to their psychic potential. Status quo doesn't change since it's set before the "present day". What they amount to is a set of rules for every faction featured in them (three or more), which so far has varied from practically nothing (GSC got some useless custom Cult traits, passable stratagems and a couple Cult-locked powers) to absolutely insane (Grey Knights went to at least high tier, I'm not kidding).

I think FSE might have a good shot, actually. But nerfs come April to IH are inevitable.

Interestingly I read Rogue Trader's core earlier and noticed Custodes had the same base stats in it as an Inquisitor (WS 5, BS 5, S4, T4, 2W for non Heroes - and Inquisitors could requisition Custodes help as much as anyone els in the Imperium).

That's true. I have been interested to dip in and see what a small force of RT era ones, around 500pts, could be like, with Heroes and top tier stuff added in.
Has a similar feel to like how the later Inquisitor did things, which is another game I've wanted to give a go with my mate. We really need to decide on a good 'point value' with the Ready Reckoner and sit together to make /ourdudes/.
In RT I also liked how Slaan were essentially psychic Orks stat-wise... and Tyranid forces were half+ Zoats in number and the Tyranids (that looked like Termagents) often used Bolter equivalents. And that the Hive Tyrant was essentially the immobile Xeno Queen back on it's Hive Ship back then.

When Gaunt got promoted to general in one of the latest books his scions who were assigned to him as bodyguards were a bit bossy towards regular guardsmen but I don't think they necessarily officially outrank them, other than I think obviously a Scion Sergeant or officer could give orders to guardsmen of a lower rank in a combat situation.

>Something about those two kids Yoncy and Dalin or whatever seems to have made everyone mad. Just spoil me.

They're daemon engines planted by Herotor Asphodel at Vervunhive, set to stay 'dormant' until they're in a position to execute crusade leadership, Kolea had two sons not a son and a daughter and is reminded of that by one of the camp followers that arrives from Vervunhive. 1/3 of the Ghosts regiment is quartered beneath the fortress containing Macaroth and Sabbat and suddenly the basement just kind of warps and everyone loses their way. Yoncy goes around blending (it's the best adjective I can use) Ghosts and their families until Sabbat and Gaunt are able to kick down the wall into the basement and kill them. At this point Kolea finds Dalin who's in shock but suddenly he warps into one too, blends Kolea, and goes on a warpath of his own. Again eventually put down by Gaunt

Such a long con I wonder if Abnett even considered it back when he wrote the third book or if it was something he came up with later. The scenes in the basement are actually pretty fucking creepy. I can understand not liking it but I think it was at least executed well.

If you bring 3 (and why wouldn't you), that's 24 wounds they have to chew through. If your opponent shoots them, your other 3 PBCs and 2 Bloat Drones are moving forward to fuck them in the face, it's all about cheap, tanky threat saturation.

The usual argument for leaving women out of war is that they're more valuable for reproductive purposes, but in the Imperium it is specifically stated that they have more humans than they know what to do with, and even if things got bad enough that conscripting equally depleted the population sustainability to the point of it being an issue, they can still resort to Krieg methods if necessary.

The Imperium is literally too impassionate and too desperate for bodies to throw into the grinder to spare the women.

>Being completely accepting of drag queens would be very in character for the type of irl social movements eschers are themed after.

I actually don't think they would be - I think that female supremacy is a huge part of Escher culture in an extremely toxic way. Rather than "approve" of a man dressing like a woman, they'd think it disgusting, offensive, or at best "cute in a dismissive way," like a baby chimp wearing a suit. Most likely, they'd expect the man to be a man and pump out healthy offspring for the clan, where they're of the most value to the Matriarchs. Eschers pay a shit-load of dosh for virile males from other Eschers or other factions - why would they risk wasting such a valuable investment when, in their eyes, the women simply better for the job?

That being said, I think a troupe of sterile, but otherwise largely healthy, squad of drag queens would be somewhat in character, but they should be hated or looked down upon for being "weak."

If you're running traditional DG (move your dudes and vehicles with spitters up) probably the Helverins so you can plink some damage off while your Nurgly dudes trundle up. Each autocannon failed save is 3 damage flat, btw.
The Warglaives are more unreliable since they only have a single D3 shot thermal but they can slice things up pretty good once they close the gap. At 14" move they're pretty fast as well.

Just giving suggestions bro. I don't list tailor myself.

I want to play Space Marines, but my literal OCD is keeping me from playing anything but Ultramarines as I worry I won't be able to represent their exact markings/veteran status. Ultramarines just seems so simple to do insignia and the like because it all comes in the original kit.

Apoc: Castellan & 2 Helverins
Renegade: 2 Generic knight kits & 1 upgrade sprue. So you get 2 each of RFBC, Thermal, Chainsword and Fist but only 1 Avenger and 1 Carapace.

I just looked at the existing lore and come up with an idea from it, /My Dudes/ for example are a cadre descended from 4th sphere survivors who have come to the opposite conclusion to their forefathers and explicitly worship the god of the greater good and enthusiastically attempt to bring non tau into their faith.

Find ideas I like, mix them together and create something new I like.

My Knight House is a mega-corporation that sells its services to whoever can buy them and arent really a family but a collection of smaller families and keep their numbers up by buying Freeblades into their army and keep their income buy investing in interplanetary trade. My Guard regiment is the House's private army.

Orks aren’t evil they just are.

They’re genetically scratch built super soldiers. They’re perfect at what they do. Which is kill and destroy everything in their path once they get going.

They don’t torture or pointlessly prolong engagements etc, but they are brutal. They’d just stomp a kid, but if they were hiding etc they wouldn’t waste time hunting them down they’d just loot the area and or go find something better to fight. They would potentially eat or enslave a captured child however.

Ork brain wouldn’t distinguish a child as they have no infancy, to them it’s just a small weak human and orks have zero remorse for the weak which can give the appearance of cruelty but they’re not actually cruel in the sense that they don’t really on average poses the intellect to be vindictive in spirit.

iirc, Stormtrooper Codex stated that they can in technical terms Command other Guard Units due to Officio Prefectus technically can outrank most Officers and grunts if and only if Situation demands it
