I'm starting to think that, but the Indomitus Overlord has a weird sculpt. The head and the right arm are the same part, and they get slotted in via the right shoulder. So I don't know how well it would have come together if I replaced the whole arm including the shoulder.

Its not just CAD that makes it loose all soul, its also that they are using that design idea of everything being designed with a unique silhouette. League of Legends kind of design.

For a fast paced shooter game it makes sense to do it like that. A slow paced table top game? No it does not make a lot of sense since you can take all the time you want to ogle at a figure. To me I think It's better to let the designers design with their own artistic sense instead of having stringent design baselines that makes everything "samey", makes figures a ton more memorable.

>> No.77579491

League of Legends is a game for babies. Sovls grow in the body as you age. Therefore things for babies lack sovl. It's important to have sovl because otherwise your game is soullless. League of Legens is a 2009 multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games. Inspired by Defense of the Ancients, a custom map for Warcraft III, Riot's founders sought to develop a stand-alone game in the same genre. Since its release in October 2009, the game has been free-to-play, and is monetized through purchasable character customization. The game is available for Microsoft Windows and macOS.

>> No.77579494

Even in 5th edition, where vehicles were quite hard to kill, I think it was more faff than it was worth. I did like the damage tables though, especially from 2nd edition where you could blow a wheel off a vehicle and have it careen across the battlefield into your own dudes... But even then I think those rules are better placed for smaller games like Gorkamorka.

Designing with silhouettes is so your brain can easily spot and recognize an opposing player, so you know instantly what character it is, and respond accordingly. Makes sense.
But on a table top board game? There is really no reason for all figures to have a unique silhouette. A warhammer figure can be however the fuck it wants, heck it could just be 3x4cm piece of cardboard with the word "primaris marine" written on it.

The cynical side of me thinks it's another step with GW trying their best to make sure every damn nook and cranny of their figures can be copyrighted.

one of the things that made 40k stand out was the artistic style. There are tons of other games and settings out there with psuedo-mobile game aesthetics, and when warhammer starts to look just like them it loses its unique appeal. Also, ffs its really not hard to see that a lot of the models released in the past few years look like childrens toys.

It does, actually.

You can do your full movement of 10" (green line) but you can't rotate and finish your move with any point being further than 10" away from where it started (red line)
If during your movement phase you were to rotate your tank on the spot, you would have to draw a similar line from any point on its original position to its rotated position. If its 3" away now thats 3" of movement.

New daemonettes. It's not even a case of them just looking bad, it's how much of a bitch they are to put together. Tiny flat contact points are annoying to line up properly, and larger bits like the icon, standard, and instruments will constantly fall off when you're trying to assemble them. The icon is particularly bad as it's centre of gravity is off so it falls over all the time. I'd rather have more dynamic monopose that's easier to assemble rather than the half stride and standing "you can kind of pose them but not really". As for their general appearance, I think they're okay, I always preferred Ackland's insectoid grey look over Diaz's sexy girl with claws design as the latter never fit alongside the rest of the slaanesh range let alone the rest of warhammer.

Clearly recasting is a contentious topic to be sure but one that pops up regularly, particularly during times of economic challenge as hobbyists look to save the most money. I thought it might be interesting to look at the impact of recasting as most places have a no discussion rule so I think a lot of people may not be aware of what the issues are or why artists, model makers, people involved heavily in the miniatures industry like me have an issue with it.

What is it?

To start it’s important to clarify what I mean by recasting.

Recasting is a process whereby someone takes a pre-existing item, in this case a miniature on sprue, or parts of a miniature, and makes a cast of the item(s) which then lets them make the model again and again at a negligible cost.

Many countries or nation states have their own views on the legality of recreating IP for your own use; look up art works copying an original, fair use, fan fiction, digital media such as videos/music etc. for various industries takes on what you can and can’t do with IP. Generally though the legal approach in the western world is that if you are copying something you have already bought from the company for your own use, this is acceptable.

Making direct copies of items and selling the product that you don’t own the rights to is theft. This has been repeatedly proven worldwide in courts across multiple industries, various services, and countless products. To argue differently is factually wrong. Buying recast goods is for want of a better word, theft.

>> No.77580673

What are the issues?

As you would expect the most common cause of recasting, and the most common reason that people don’t like their products being recast is down to money. The recaster wants to make it and the original seller wants to be the one that does that instead. The most common argument you will see in favour of recasting is that it’s not hurting anyone because they are a big business.

Target number one here is GW. I regularly see people justifying where they stand on recasting based purely on the fact that Games Workshop is a massive company and charges a premium for their miniatures. This is true, they do charge a lot, often above the rest of the industry for a similar weight in plastic, and this is also a fact. Without even going into an explanation about why GW costs more you need to understand that supporting recasting because you dislike GW also hurts the people you haven’t thought of; the little guy who isn’t charging as much.

There is a regular trend with recasting sites where they start with just GW and often take donated models from customers to make a mould out of, and they expand their stock. As they grow in size and renown on invite only sub Reddits and forums, they expand outward, maybe a model from Scibor, or Warlord, they are companies too right so what’s the harm? Well as the recasters grow again they start producing from individuals who make very limited money on the small range of busts or 75mm figures they produce, like Michael Kontraros Collectibles, or Raul Latorre. These are individuals who DO get hurt by this immoral and shady business practice (see theft).

I urge you to read Raul’s post below, and a call from Michael Kontraros to understand from people affected by the practice what issues you are causing.

In the end it is the consumers right to get the cheapest product of his wants. It is the providers concern to cater to this.

No, it makes sense, miniatures are models representing something, if they fail to represent it they don't fulfil their purpose and in a playing level, they are bad models.

I watch a guy making two King of wars armies in 10mm mostly because the entry price for two armies was stupid even for alternative things like KoW. Making it in 10mm means that once the models are printed you can have an entire army done in an afternoon.
Converting game systems that work in inches at this 28mm/heroic scale can be simply done by using cm instead if inches. (Let's not say balance was ever a true priority for this games anyway)
Also things like one page rules is gaining ground if anything because there aren't 90000 different marines while everyone else eat shit and dies

because they wouldn't fit on cavalry ovals. They're given bigger bases because knights are centerpiece models, so you have more space for creative basing, something that doesn't shine through with 'eavy metal. Also it's to accommodate an appropriate amount of space on the tabletop, they purposefully made it harder to hide them behind terrain pieces. I don't see how a big stable circle is "clumsy", if they were on ovals or unbased they'd fall over all the time.

saying that the wargaming industry is going to need an overhaul because of 3D printers is like saying that bakeries are going to go out of business because people can make bread at home. For a lot of people, no price point is going to be low enough to justify buying one solely for the purpose of printing minis, especially in a hobby where there's already considerable work in getting a miniature built and painted to be ready to use on the tabletop, there is always going to be a massive convenience factor in being able to buy minis on the sprue. In a hobby where it seems like even half the people who own miniatures don't even paint them, I can't fathom how anyone could think that 3D printing will become mainstream enough to challenge the established businesses in the future, let alone the near future. 3D printing as a process is still too much of a hobby in itself to have any real mass appeal in wargaming circles, and is destined to remain niche no matter how cheap the printers themselves become.

Yes. each time you game you hobby, gaming is the core of w40k, everything else, like painting and convering is important, but secondary to it.
Pretty much everyone agreed on it, up until Jervis Johnson and his cronies started kicking people out of their job left and right. And the whole thing culiminated with Chambers not being allowed to use his new rules for 4th ed, the birth of 4th ed, and complet moral bankrupcy of w40k as a hobby and game.

That is not true. Also the idea that you are somehow responsible for the other persons fun, is mind blowing stupid. It started in 90s, when Johnson fucked up the csm codex (the one people like to forget existed), and instead of GW fixing it started spining that idea that the "game" is a social construct and that people should build the armies pre game out of vast collections of models(preferably armies). Which I guess made his corporate masters happy, because right now GWs policy on fun gaming is, play 2-3 armies for each other the core systems and 1-2 for secondary one, and maybe you will get 1-2 fun armies to play with at a given time.

Back then the game was good, both people were building the best and most crazy armies they could, and even if the game ended in 2 turns, it was still fun.

No there is not. When the game was good you bought one army.And not just because even recasted it cost 4-5 monthly salaries, and you played it till you sold it or never.

And if someone switchs armies just to get other rules they are a fag.

Harlequins are very tricky to use but very, very strong if played properly, fun but very elite.
