RT to about 1992 tanks were made for a more petite scale of model generally (not just marines, but that's what we're looking at here)

the thing is that those tank kits stayed in use a lot longer than most of the infantry they supposedly carried, and the replacement kits didn't really change the footprint for a lot of reasons

the super heavy tanks around the Baneblade chassis for example are the size they are because in Epic they were only slightly larger than a standard Land Raider, which - even though Land Raiders weren't fully to scale with infantry in Epic either - meant that when they arrived in 40k the super-heavy vehicles (starting with the nine-pound lead thunderhawk sometime in the mid 90s) ended up much smaller than they needed to be, both to fit on the table and to remain affordable (the thunderhawk was a gimmick kit and not affordable, but later kits would be, with the possible exception of the Warlord)

You need to paint the plate (shield in this case) fully, with a transfer in this case, seems fairly easy, blue with a transfer. THEN you need to vanish or lak it so it's shield in. Then use chipping paint or hairspray, then paint the "top" paint scheme. then you use hot water to chip the areas you want to be the under layer. Once that's done, you need another vanish layer to seal the chipping. Finally you give it some depth by underlining SOME of the chiped areas with the highlight colour.

Just want to clarify a rule, if anyone can help.

The Transvectic Generator Psyarkana equipment required the user to roll a D6 every time it is used. On a 1, they suffer the Dragged into the Warp Perils result.

DitW requires a Ld test. Failure means immediate death, success is 'only' an unsavable wound. My understanding is that this means for the user to die instantly, they must roll a 1 and then fail their Ld test. Is that correct?

Even quite modest differences in height might require custom engineering, because they throw out all the other measurements as well. Why the Dark Mechanicum in particular had to engineer him a special suit instead of his own Legion's forge is perhaps more pertinent to the mystery of why he wears the thing, but generally speaking if he's just a bit taller then a) he wouldn't be able to wear armour engineered for the near-standardised bodies of space marines and b) it would be technically correct to say he rivalled Horus in size, the best kind of correct, even though it might not be objectively true to say they were borrowing each other's bras all the time.

This conversion for example is about the size of a regular modern plastic Indomitus, standing next to the metal bastard it was specially engineered from by the Wolf Mechanicum.

Kind of? Even the first dedicated Ghazghkull model wore lifts. He towered over 1988 marinelets like >>72469421 >>72464616 >>72464606

The size creep isn't new and the tendency to produce more impressive models as centerpieces isn't either - Ghazghkull was part of the pre-2E wave that rescaled Space Marines to the metal-plastic hybrid models and reintroduced the Space Wolves as Space Norse, which included redesigning dreadnoughts into boxnauts for the first time and - naturally - the introduction of Bjorn the Fell-Handed, who was a lot more impressive with an assault cannon when it was strength 8 and could basically fire indefinitely with good dice.

Orks, by canon, are bigger and stronger the more experienced they get, so it's not a good example. Was Calgar, Yarrick, Macharius, Creed, Eldrad, etc. big impressive models that towered over their contemporaries? Old Abaddon was not that much bigger or more impressive than regular Chaos terminators of the time. Look at WHFB models before End Times/AoS. Prince Imrik, the Lord of Dragons, rides on a regular dragon which has a head swap. Archaon, the Everchosen of Chaos, is a dude on a horse.

In gameplay terms?

For starters he was the only character vehicle at the time. There was like a 12 month period in which Space Wolves were the WAAC build just because they had a Codex filled with weirdly OP characters, like the Strength 7 Wolf Guard or the guy who could see through time.

Bjorn was immune to psychology (which was a bigger deal then), had a lightning claw and heavy flamer (I want to say Deathstorm Template sized, because there were three sizes of template then, but I honestly haven't checked) and an assault cannon.

He also rolled a D6 at the start of each game and could use the result to just... modify his damage table results back to something good. And he was cheaper than a Terminator squad of 5 guys by a considerable way, despite having a near-indestructible body and two terminator heavy weapons.

This is the datacard from the 2E Codex, it's less bullshit than the later RT version (Sustained Fire is no longer infinite, the Vehicle Manual rules have been simplified into just three hit locations). Armour penetration in 2E was per-weapon, usually Strength+Damage+D6 but not always, so for example a Meltagun was 2D6+8 and could barely scratch Bjorn from the front and only with slightly lucky dice from the side. Multimeltas would fuck him up, they were D6+2D12+8, Lascannon, krak missiles, meltabombs, powerfists and especially thunder hammers (which he could Parry).

Plus I think he could join squads because he was a character. I genuinely don't think they ever patched that, you just decided among your group whether shit you didn't like in the rules was usable or not.

strong disagree. Yeah chaos and imperium are the best balanced factions in old bfg, but most of the distinctions between them are born out of the 10k years. Chaos ships are old crusade models and a few “evil” classes from the intervening years, and most imperial ships are relatively “new” and part of the distinction is the codex restrictions on space marine fleets.
The factions are then almost identical and you lose a lot of the charm, unless you lean heavily into it like 30k and have rules for every legion+other major naval factions.

Dunno what you got from what I said that there were no old Imperium ships and no newer chaos ships but yes, though they are the exceptions and not the rules.
The point is that the most iconic imperial ships aren’t around and the fleets would be basically identical which is a bit boring balance wise. Also I can only think of maybe 3 imperial ships that are GC era, and IIRC they’re not made much because they can’t be or they’re seen as dated designs

Interestingly, this particular fluff blurb has sparked up a lot of conversation about the "Imperial = big prow + torpedoes" and "Chaos = pointy + lances" dichotomy.

Given that we've seen both style of ships in service in the 30k timeline, there's speculation that "distinct armoured prow" being a Martian trademark shows that the distinction is more from the ship's constructor rather than a pan-Imperium shift in design. The keel-built "Chaos" designs could instead be Terran or Saturnine, and the gradual disappearance of that style is a combination of doctrinal changes (like the Garaeox Prerogative) and the increasing stranglehold of the AdMech (compare with 30k, where competition exists like the Terrawatt Clans and Luna).

Excluding Triplex and Ryza, they all use use the same style battery packs, which makes a ton of logistical sense.

Oh sure, because they were all designed by STC systems. However, each pattern is adapted by the STC system to use the resources available locally, which may have some minerals in abundance or lacking in others.

the shitty elbows and the fact that there's supposed to be a spotter and gunner on the top deck are the worst things for me. That and the head is ugly. And it has crappy armor distribution. And it's legs are over-armored. And those shitty elbows.

And then on top of that it only has two maniples, the aircraft guns don’t do anything, and it’s main gun is corridor despite having a huge range of motion, and it has no unique arm guns. there’s just so many problems, even if a “battlecruiser” type titan is a neat idea.

>The UK will have much better trade deals with the US very soon

you have no idea what you're speaking of, be quiet

>a no deal brexit is likely

Brexit is dead. Five years from now you'll be using the Euro as part of your readmission criteria. Because that's what all new members need, and the US isn't going to be able to do the kind of just in time supply chain that the EU has been doing for the last several decades, simply because it's thousands of miles away and fast travel over that distance costs significantly more. Even David Davis has given up on it.

>costs of shipping and international sales

Those are dependent on fuel costs and customs handling over distance. Distance between UK and US is non-negotiable. The UK is currently hiring 50,000 new customs agents to replace the work that being within the EU previously meant they didn't need to do. The cost of paying just those 50,000 civil servants - never mind the massive duplication of paperwork in every office that ships anything overseas from January 2021 - is going to be added on to the cost of all products imported and exported, because the only way for companies to pay those costs is to pass them on to consumers. All companies will do this, there's no incentive for them not to do it. In addition to US-specific federal standards, UK-origin products will also need to satisfy EU standards and the two supply chains have to be kept entirely separate or one (or both) simply closes to UK businesses.

>but china

China keeps prices down because cost of living and worker protections - yours - are artificially low. Even if you want that, the UK doesn't and wasn't promised that - they were expressly promised the easiest trade deal in history with no disruption to their standard of living and a massive increase in wealth through trade. The UK govts own assessments, best-case, clearly show that Brexit is going to shrink the UK economy significantly. This was true before Covid. Brexit became unaffordable.

Just to make this absolutely crystal fucking clear to you: the Brexit deals the US is promising needed to be signed last year for the UK/US to be ready to implement them in 2021, and that's on an incredibly optimistic schedule. Trade deals take something like a decade to work out normally, and usually aren't so vast and complex as whole-economy access.

The UK's transition arrangements with the EU end at the end of this year. Without them, there is no trade, with anybody. The UK has no basis for trading with the US; it could accept a quicky deal based on existing arrangements, but those would be entirely on US terms over what is kept and dropped. If the US says we'll replace the EU's milk, meat, fisheries buy but you're going to use the dollar from now on and we don't like your worker protections, then those things have to change for the deal to get signed. By January 1, 2021.

The actual thing that will happen is an extension of some sort to the EU/UK transition, probably for a decade while the new settlement is worked out. Then it'll turn out as part of that process that even President Biden has US, not UK, interests at heart and the UK doesn't want the deal the US is offering. At that point the UK petitions to rejoin the EU, but as a non-member must accept Schengen and the Euro as part of joining criteria.

It's pottery.

The whole BAngel aesthetic might be my favorite in the Heresy. Everything is clean, but crisp. It's not overly designed and doesn't have a lot of "stuff" on it, but it somehow looks more detailed than some of the other legion-specific wargear.

What's up /tg/.

I am both a scumbag and newly in possession of a 3D printer (elegoo mars) and I'm trying to get the best use out of it. I see a lot of good 30k/40k models taken down but naturally they're out there somewhere. I've tried some digging but haven't found a repository of sneaky STLs akin to the PDF megas linked in these threads. If someone knows where I can find mechanicum/general 30k files that don't show up on the usual sites it'd be a real solid to point me in the right direction.

I want to start modelling my own stuff in the future but I have other things to worry about at the moment so I'm hardly taking requests.
