So now the Horus Heresy is coming to a close, which piece of background fluff do you think GW will massively expand and thus mutilate forevermore?

The Scouring? Requires minimal effort in producing new minis but at the same time might mean they can't sell EVEN MORE marine vs marine stuff.

Or go further back and do The Unification Wars™ with Thunder Warriors vs a bunch of Techno-Barbarian shit Forge World can cook up and sell at eye-gouging prices?

Don't tell that to people. They think 8th is amazing and shit all over anything before it (despite not playing any of it). Sure, older editions had their flaws but they've unironically got more soul than 8th which is as banal as they come.

It's not so much SW players bitching about infiltrators, it's SW players bitching about JUST getting infiltrators. I mean seriously? A full size, full price box release that only gives you one 10 man squad and a character? For the SAME PRICE as Dark Imperium, a box that has 4 characters, 2 5 man squads, and a 3 man special unit?

Both of them are gonna rely on big (relatively speaking) hordes of some of the least value for money models GW makes, yeah.

Tyranids actually have the flexibility to be built as a non-horde these days, but you might want to do your research first depending on if you want to be "competetive" or not. (Protip: It's more fun if you don't.) The problem for Nids is that their SC box is shit, and they don't have any big box sets you can pick up at better value.

Question about washes.

>1
Whats the difference between a wash and a glaze? They both seem the same to me.

>2
What color washes go with what? If I have a blue color, would I wash it with a blue wash or nuln or agrax? What about red etc? For metals I know you normally do nuln for the "colder" metals and agrax for "warmer" metals?

Do you normally wash ddirectly into recesses or do you do the "wash everything" approach. It seems strange to apply a wash to like a flat armor panel and what not. I have seen people do both I guess but is there a better or worst option?

People meme about them being the tranny army. What they don't realise is they ARE, but that the joke's on the trannies. They are pawns in a psy-op orchestrated by an even greater evil, that will eventually simply devour them in the end.

They are a direct paralell with the way that CIA/MI6/KGB etc plants corrupt and pervert every popular leftist movement in recent history, by subverting the organisational structure and turning it towards identity politics and LGBT race baiting.

Edge highlights are good, but I completely understand why people don't want to do the eavy metal style.
I like to do airbrush highlights with the head and surrounding areas edge highlighted to create a focal point. It's far less time consuming. Not sure if it looks any better, though. I save the rest of the highlights for things I want to draw attention to. Like battle damage.

Yeah I'm quite familiar with resin and PVC, my main job right now is designing statues and follow/give feedback during the whole process - only drawfag on the team so I need to do everything including marketing images, designing the packaging, working on the trailer(s), visit the prototype painters and mass produciton factories etc. (Actually one of the orgs we worked with to paint a couple prototypes mainly does warhammer commissions IIRC).
Can't reveal stuff due to NDA's and unwanted attention but although none of what I do is that small of a scale, it's also not too far from it when it comes to small brittle details. I can't imagine any of those vertical poles and sticks in the image being resin, maybe the flags at most.

The only thing I'm not familiar with is painting IRL so it would be fun to grab a set of them and practice. Are there any 3D files online? I could print them.

How do I stop overthinking choosing an army? It should be an easy decision where you look at a few models of each army, think one looks cooler than the others, and then paint that army, however my autist brain seems to believe it has to overthink everything. If I think I've chosen an army, i'll just start second guessing myself and start thinking about other armies and how cool they look, and the cycle continues, even looping back on itself, and I have no idea what my playstyle would be so I can't base my decision on that.

I tend to highlight most of my models as if they are lit from above, or like, the front side of where they are facing.

I never fully outline every panel, I always thry and keep a logical light/shadow, but I think it is nevertheless a very important technique to make details pop out on miniatures that are intended to be viewed on the tabletop. You need very bright, stark, exagerrated tones which aren't "natural", but they help the eye pick out the detail from a distance so your minis don't look like one big blob of colour at the other side of the table.

Lots of painting techniques you see nowadays are designed with one intention and one intention alone: To be photographed in high resolution, and posted on the internet, receiving much adulation in doing so. These highly detailed models with fancy "realistic" lighting and over the top blends, NMM, etc often start to just look wierd and out of place when set against tabletop surroundings, or even just when viewed from the wrong angle; so it's not something I aspire to for a good looking army.

The most important part of an army is that it's consistent throughout.

>I know lore wise it must reduce their strength
In terms of fluff, marines seem perfectly capable of fighting with deactivated power armour, so most of their strength seems to be from their genhanced muscles rather than the suit's fibre-bundle system, that seems to just be there to mainly to carry its own weight. In terms of crunch, scouts are the same S4 as power armoured marines too.

So going unarmoured might effect their endurance but presumably their arms have a greater degree of movement without those chunky plates covering them so maybe having greater agility/flexibility in close-combat that offsets the decreased endurance. Plus marine endurance is so stupid you're probably talking about a marine's arms getting tired after four days of non-stop fighting rather than six.

That is how I headcanon marines dropping the armour on their arms anyway.

it might also be that when the arm plates get damaged to the point of nonfunction, it's usually in a way that impedes the use and function of the wearer in such a way that it's simply easier to tear off the busted parts and keep going. after all, the only thing that it would feed power to is the corresponding hand, which in most cases all you're carrying is a gun or sword or something, things that really aren't reliant on power armour like say your legs supporting that extra like, half ton of metal and electronics

They have huge theological issues with the concept of a General Artificial Intelligence (called Silica Animus or Abominable Intellects) and that is basically what you'd be doing if you created an AI that was complex and adaptable enough to equal a human mind in the chaos of a battlefield.

To skirt around this they slice up humans and install cybernetics to achieve a similar result.

Glazes are intended to tint an undercoat while washes are intended to darken the recesses and define details. If you slap a wash on it usually has the effect of a very weak glaze. They can be somewhat similar but the effects are different. Washes tend to have a surficant in it to break water tension to easily flow into recesses while with glazes you generally don't want it collecting anywhere.
>2
That depends on what you're going for. The obvious choice is to wash with a darker version of the same color. It would be best to experiment. I've seen people use a purple wash on top of gold. Remember that when put on a wash will weakly tint your undercoat.
>3
This is another "depends" situation. Usually when you do an all over wash you'll get some coffee staining on flat surfaces. Washes can be useful in this regard by doing a weak tint which will blend/smooth out transitions in different paint layers and mostly collect in the recesses. One of the easiest ways to somewhat fix sloppy highlighting would be to cover the whole thing in a wash. On the other hand if you do not want to tint your undercoat at all you want to be more selective with where you wash. Either by carefully washing in the recesses or (and this is the easiest way I found) by putting a gloss coat over your base coat and then washing, then soaking up the wash on the raised parts with a qtip, then going over with a matte varnish.

One minor thing. The Drukhari torture people out of necessity since they need to feed on suffering to sustain their withering souls.

If you were in their place you would do the same thing. Heck, you are doing it now. The meat you buy from the markets came out of great suffering both animal and human.

You can cut them off from a universe by purging it from all life. That is why the Chaos Gods were freaked out by Nagash ritual. With no life around, the Chaos Gods would be forced to move on.

He explains his reasoning in a short story pretty succinctly. Pick related. Context is he was teaching a warsmith that he just beat how to win. The IW asks why he’s doing that and Khan says “Maybe it’ll help in your next life” and the IW laughs and says “you should have joined the warmaster if you don’t believe in the Imperial Truth. This follows

I don’t know, but I could estimate. A Scions is probably the same height as a Skitarii, and a Scion is just slightly taller than a guardsman, so just find a pic of a Skitarii next to one and think a little smaller.

The Emperor being a brain dead vegetable used as an abhorrent cog in a machine, and the macabre spectacle worshipped by the ignorant and cynically used by the those in power is the best version of 40k.

Before it turned into Space Dad drama and confirmation the Emperor is still sentient.

What most replies to this post is not getting is that you’re not highlighting to simulate the way light reflects (necessarily) you are doing it to accentuate detail, create contrast and attract focus which is important on miniatures that are also gaming pieces (as such will be viewed from all angles at many different distances).

There’s no one in this thread who would think that a drybrushed model actually looks better than a edge highlighted model upon actual inspection.

That being said it’s a lot of work and requires much more practice compared to drybrushing.

They only ever banded together when the Silent King gave them an outside enemy to fight, and once that failed, brainwashed them all into subservience. When the King fucked off before the necron nap time, he removed the command protocols, so now necrons don't get along again. My phaeron has had his crypteks reinstall a rudimentary from of command protocols into most of his underlings and gathering C'tan shards to try and resurrect one and become the new Silent King, just like in the good old times.

Lore question regarding Eldar:

I'm aware that some craftworlds strongly believe in rebuilding the Eldar empire, my question is thusly, Why aren't there any eldar "empires" out here?

The closest thing I've heard about was craftworlds defending exodite worlds, but I've never read about what the damn buggers do other then float around and whine about dwindling. Surely having multiple worlds would help in the saving the species department.

On a side note, what does an Eldar "fleet" actually consist of in terms of ships and stuff?

We don't go around systematically torturing cattle. It's bad for the product. Cows produce less milk when stressed, for example.
