Dakka Forum: old models...ignorant players

Some of my old pals and their buds love the new hotness of 40k. I took a 13 year break and came back at 8th.

Some other older players with Eldar stuff like me are getting snubbed for the models we have in our collections.

Last night someone stated that playing with original Dark Eldar models... no respecting player would field those models and throwing them away would be the best choice.

Buy new stuff, buy new stuff.etc etc.

I hated the GW Epic releases that came out in the late 90's..it was so clucnky and MechWarrior-like. Jes Goodwins 'alien' look and feel of the first Eldar epic vehicles like Wave Serpents and Revenants were far superior imo. That however is personal preference and is subjective.

Playing with the models you purchased from GW, Wrong sized bases or wargear included, ...should be a choice and not a negative.

An analogy. Lets say I love an old 50's pickup truck or a 60's corvette. Someone today may 'hate' those designs and like the newer cars. IF kept in mint condition both still function the same. There may be more details or features on the newer cars but there seems to be more and more classic car shows anymore. So some of the new stuff is the new 'hotness' for a few years but then get forgotten....I don't know of too many people drooling over 2004 or 2010 vehicles much.

I see old Beaky Marines, the first Iron-looking Wave Serpent, the ghost warrior head for RT elder dreadnoughts, the original Tyranid Warriors, etc as sought out. Some 'hate' that stuff...others love it. I don't want to spend my time at the FLGS in a snobfest or debating aesthetics. I have 13 Art History credits in my education and one thing is for sure is that what is cool is a very subjective term and art snobs have been around since there has been art.

Thoughts on how to handle jerks.

ps: by the way newer players come up each and everytime I bring my older stuff and I always get gasps of cool and that is sweet.

Dakka Forum: Is the Tau Auxillary GWs biggest ball drop?

When GW created the Tau Empire they gave themselves oppurtunity to create unique xenos without having to give them thier faction. They created the Kroot and the Vespid then..... nothing. No Nicassar battle psychers, no Tarellian firewarriors, No Demiurg, nothing. They had the perfect oppurtunity and wasted it. Instead of cool new interesting xenos we get Primaris marines, the custodes getting there own freaking faction (Who the hell even asked for that) and the sisters of silence also getting there own army (once again WHO ASKED FOR THAT?!) If by some slim chance anyone from GW is reading this please stop jacking off the imperium and give the Xenos the spotlight like for at least 5 minutes? Is that too much to ask for?

Dakka Forum: How have the Tau not created warp travel yet

As you all know the Tau are known for thier slow bt safe FTL witch merely skims the warp instead of going all in. why is that? why havmt they figured out warp travel yet? you may be thinking "but chimera they have no warp engines" and your dead wrong. I present to you the Kroot warsphere http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Warsphere a warp capable vessel that the kroot posses severl of witch has been recorded bieng used to aide the tau in battles so its not like the kroot are hiding them from them. your probably thinking now "ok chimera maybe they do access to warp drives but they have no navigators" and once again dead fucking wrong. they have an entire planet chock full of them. The Kroot are stated to have a sort of sixth sense for finding planets in the warp. how do you think they pilot those warspheres so why the actual fuck hasnt the most inginuitive race in 40k put two and two together and started reproducing warp drives in mass and throwing kroot on all thier sips to act as navigaters? this makes no sense? all the pieces are right fucking under there noses.

Don't know if this is the right thread. Sometimes with my horde armies I'll look on ebay for models that are base painted so I can start painting them from there but you'll find people that obviously don't even water their paints or have never even heard of lining etc. selling their models for the most steel ball inflated prices like 3 times or more than the retail. Are there any good sites where you can buy base painted models etc. I mean ebay really is ridiculous for 40k you'll get people trying to sell a box set of something like 'here is an opened box set of mega nobz, I'm only selling them for the same price as you could get in GW, but with 3 pound for postage on top' bwahaahahaha
