So my girlfriend and I have been tossing around the idea of making Fenrisian Eldar. Yes that's snowflakey, but it's somewhat supported by the lore, what with the increasing amount of evidence that Fenris is/was an exodite world. The idea is this:

>Use Eldar and 3rd party (including Kingdom Death) models to make exodites
>Maybe throw in some Sylvaneth and whatever the AoS wood elves are called now
>Run them with the eldar codex
>Use them as an allied detachment for friendly narrative games, or as opposing armies on the rare occasion my girl wants to play

And before you accuse me of being a neckbeard for the titty models, yes I am, but also the TNA part was her idea.

Please just do a basic google search. Humans are ingrained to find thicker women, wide hips, and larger breasts attractive because they’re biological signs of being able to give birth to healthy children.

Athletic women can still give birth to healthy children just as easily, but we don’t find them as attractive because athletic women typically carry less of the traits we see on thicker individuals. Also being lean can cause certain reproductive cycle issues.

That’s it really.

Thicc was hijacked by chubby and overweight women because they wanted in on all the action. but, men with sense can see right through it.

I would find a source, but truth be told I don't want to spent time doing it, I don't want to further shit up this thread with off-topic chatter, and I also don't want to sift through the plethora of SJW tripe which shills obese women as "thicc" and all that shit which is involved as well.

If they have a name in my codex (basically everyone Sarge and above) they're wounded and recover later, because I don't want to refluff /mydudes/ twice a month. On a couple occasions I have included a tabletop death into my "canon", like my original Chapter Master incapacitating (killing) Abaddon in a duel, but succumbing to his wounds (getting punched in half by a helbrute) afterwards. The same opponent and I then used Abaddon's and my CM's wounded bodies as objectives in our next narrative game, and since I got there first, I was able to recover him and stick him in a Contemptor. My chapter champion also got killed by lelith in this weird drunken arena game my wife and I played once.

Well, i've got something in mind for exactly this.

Vehicles get destroyed if they explode. They get damaged, recovered, and eventually repaired if they do not explode.

Troops die, commanders survive but barely, and actual named characters are effectively given an emergency evac, escorted by nearby marines (who we assume end up dying) to save iconic names of the chapter from a needless, honourless death.

Dreadnoughts I usually say die, due to high turnover rates, (who knows, one of the marines who "died" earlier become a dread), but pic related my tyrannic dreadnought would simply be repaired and revived after every near-death experience.

And when a new game starts, we just assume that replacements from reserve companies are brought up to fill the new spaces, or newly promoted scouts get the honour.

Most people's ideas of what plastic surgery looks like was set in place 10 years ago. Modern high-end plastic surgeries can be incredibly hard to see, with the exception of breast augmentations and nose jobs, which can look much better now than they used to, but are still really hard to hide.

Taking better performing units to fill a role your army is lacking in, or better weapon options is fine, Taking the exact net list that won the latest tournament is WAAC
Taking the best options on a bad unit is fine, ONLY taking the best units and switching them out the moment they get slightly nerfed or under perform WAAC.

People sometimes will complain about getting beaten, those people tend to be WAACs, People also sometimes assume that a fluffy army can't be effective or that to be fluffy your army has to be shit.

Nothing yet. And while part of the problem is that the Stormsurge is ugly, the other problem is that it just doesn't mesh well with the Tau's previously established outlook and methods when it came to titans. They were pretty firmly established as thinking building-size robots were inefficient, and just took them out with massed hammerheads or railgun tigersharks, which fits them well.

But really, people in general paint their armies much too uniformly. You shouldn't be afriad to use slightly different color schemes for different units.

Gue'vesa should be easier now than ever with how they handled GSC, since they literally could just add infantry squads as an option to the Tau list, and just add the ability to take drones and maybe support turrets.

Chaos is certainly one of the best armies to do it.

A good example of what I mean, is to have your "core" color - say purple, and always use that.

Make your warband's colors white and purple, but the cultists are shitty retards, so they wear black and purple rags, the HQs and other important boys wear red cloth over their armor, the possesed have orange-flesh mutations, ect. Even within a single color scheme you can have variety to make the units non homogeneous while maintaining the look of a coherent force.

You see a lot of people recommending Deldar as an army for your gf/wife/etc.
No.
Women in these hobbies either swing into "table slut" territory where they'll have picked Deldar the moment they saw the bikinis
Or women who see the bikinis and assume the hobby is the same as TERA, WoW, and all the rest where the only women who play are the "table sluts" and NOPE out of the whole Warhammer 40k franchise.

Depends on how big your batches on.

If you did 90 in say, batches of 15, you could probably knock out one batch a night with 5~-6 hours if you're newer to painting. If you paint in batches of 45 you could probably get them done in 12 hours each. The larger the batch the faster you can go.

Dark Angels and their retarded obsession with the Fallen. Codex mentions that Fallen operations take up about 1% of all their campaigns, but GW seems to focus only on this one aspect of the First.

This thread is a utter dumpster fire thanks to screeching autists and badwrongfun, but I'm gonna take a second to say, these knights are painted gloriously.

WAAC and Tourneyfags are two different things

Tourneyfags may have a take all comers list and can hope to win every game, but at least they have a sense of honor about it. They'll be tough to play against and you probably lose to them but they aren't WAAC

WAAC will pull out a specific list tailored to beat your army, they'll bitch about losing units and make you feel guilty for having some success and then they'll start cheating when things don't go their way.

WAACs usually aren't allowed in tournaments, get disqualified or even just lose because they rely to much on counter picks and cheating.

>> No.71305837

>>71305695
If you're new, its not really as much of a problem. you're still figuring out the game. Just don't get into the habit of building list to counter specific people in the store unless you both consent to it or your store has it as a weird local meta. just talk to your local players and see what they do.

I made three of each by using sprue to fab a few tripods, and subbing spare Cadians onto the bases. FWIW, I made enough bases by subbing appropriately sized steel flatwashers I bought at the hardware store and covered with sheet styrene - AKA a FOR SALE sign - using CA (Krazy Glue) so the models would bond firmly. All the base joins were further reinforced with PVA (Elmers) when I based them, so they're rock solid sturdy and don't come unraveled during use.
