While the battle group is available I’d get that.

They don't look too bad. I've found that if you spray them with a car body primer as an undercoat, it can fill in some of the rough lines the FDM produces.

The pics below are of AT scaled warhound printed on my ender 3 with cheap filament at 0.1mm layer height. once primed even the small amount of ridging will disappear.


That looks pretty good but I’m also super picky because my painting skills are lousy. I don’t need anything making my job harder and our bed isn’t heated so my prints warp very easily.

Is that base from Thingiverse? It looks nice and I’m ordering my own marbled filament for bases and terrain.

Both, obviously. You don't need to eat this week.

The battlegroup naturally, you fabulously rich person!

Alternatively you could treat yourself to the new dice, some scenery, character terminals, Forgeworld tiles, Hoody or Leisure suit...

I think I posted this on B&C but what do you guys think of Valkyrie missiles instead of hunter killers as a warp missile?

Begun work on an Ork Stompa. Might be getting Aeronautica Imperialis, so I could at least use the Ork aircraft and the Stompa as a small battlegroup in Horizon Wars.

Opinion: Warlords should be able to carry a pair of warp missiles, that would look cool up there.

Wolf Guard Bodyguard in Terminator Armor





I want the old variant Warlords back. You know, the ones with only two or three guns and either more shields or movement.

Also, the Carapace Landing Pad needs to return; one shoulder can have the actual pad and a small maintenance hangar while the other houses a control tower/communications/sensor array.

But yeah, a pair of warp missiles would be good. Or Golgotha-class Hellfury missiles. I mean c’mon, who doesn’t like a house-sized rocket full of hellfire acid?

Maybe the easiest thing there is to use the warbringer chassis. The open deck sans cannon is ideal for a landing pad.

Without the painted housing I can swap missiles between legios. Today I’m going to try printing a launcher rail and base for my new big missile.

Slowly getting there.

I've put rotation points on the sponsons and the main gun so they should hopefully turn on the model. I will be putting a generic weapon body in the weapon points and have separate forward components to denote weapon type (with their ammo pod sticking out the back like all eldar weapons).

there are aft defence guns which will be on gimbles giving them a very wide fire arc (everywhere by forwards).

Need to properly attach the peytral to the chest and the greaves/vambraces.

Otherwise pretty close to finished. Then I just need to print it.

AI is getting some ground obj models that should be able to be used as terrain in AT aswell.

The asset set looks great but £25 its a little pricey. I'll still get them when releases are thin on the ground...

Its foolish to hope, but what could be more awesome than if they dropped rules to use Thunderbolts and Marauders in White Dwarf?

well you could prolly house rule them in, i know some of you folks are good at making rules.

and since AI is now confirmed to be 8mm, even the planes could be used as terrain features, or objectives.

Slowly getting the hang of this program.

Building some titan grade eldar weaponry:

Inferno Lance
Distortion Cannon
Pulsar

Will eventually do a giant monofilament artillery gun, starfire plasma cannon and a tremor cannon (huge vibro cannon).

interesting tidbit - the tremo/vibro weapons weren't sonic originally, they were electromagnetic agitators that shook things apart using disruptive energy waves...

What is this "just the Microsoft program" you speak of? Is it free?

Microsoft 3d builder.

It's free.
It's also very basic and intended for helping you optimise 3d print models.

However I don't have the time to learn how to use anything more complicated and there are a load of creative commons models out there that can be chopped up for virtual converting.

All the grey bits in the screen caps are from existing models.

All the colours are geometric shapes I've added and manipulated.

I adore people recreating their 28mm titans and knights at 8mm.

Painting an Acastus and three Questoris. Eshin Grey with Dark tone wash.

Once these chaps are done I'll work on the Household's supporting Warhound. He definitely needs more added detail before painting.

We had a game tonight with a bit of experimentation; a handful of Knights each( acting as independent characters ) and to the death!

And it was awesome! Yes!

Highlight of the game; brother's last remaining Questoris rolled for catastrophic damage(eh?), and declared to his opponent "YOU'RE COMING WITH ME, ****HEAD!".

How was I supposed to know his Knight was packing a nuclear bomb?

Seriously though. It was clear from tonights game that the Knights could easily be in their own little game. We only needed minor adjustment to the rules( Ion shields were only stronger when Knights were close enough to each other, all knights take a shaken test only when a knight is destroyed ) and with the upcoming variants theres more options to employ - especially the Questoris. We found it easier to use a Knight terminal for reference but each Knight had its own dice to represent its structure points( an Acastus would need a D8 ).

The Avenger cannon actually became useful without the need for coordinated strike orders! That said, we've come up with a stronger alternative for more points but is less accurate, less range and less dice.

In AT's current state we think a handful of Knights being led by a single Scion or Titan is an interesting idea. If you go for a Scion you can afford more knights, but a titan brings devasting firepower...hmmm.

I've actually been working on making a homebrew system based on Battletech for running Knight level threats (the current range is from Armiger-eq to Acastus-eq) in Titanicus scale.

Basically I'm just attempting to make MechWarrior 40k...

It's been a bit slow going though because I keep getting distracted. Does that sound like something anyone else is interested in or are there aversions to the Battletech system over something more genealogically Warhammer?

After 40k necrons and LOTR stole focus for a while back at painting AT stuff for upcoming tournament. Some gatling blasters, quake cannon, alternative weapons for warlord and reaver for my 2nd legion(Decided I want wysiwyg options for both legions afterall in the end money be damned...). Fun.

Also assembling the 2nd combo box with spires. Having hard time with keeping walls straight :( How do you do bigger buildings than 1 piece squares?

12 factions for Lord of The Rings
4663
11772 pts(along with lots of unpainted unsorted stuff)
5265 pts
5150 pts
~3200 pts Knights

I personally haven't had the pleasure of Battletech yet, but I will say this; if your current efforts have led to enjoyable gaming sessions then definitely pursue it!

For our situation, if using the Knights as individual units wasn't enjoyable, then we'd have ditched the idea there and then. More specifically to your situation a 40K version of Battletech would be like the many versions of Risk, Monopoly or even the numerous Doom mods - your favourite game dressed up in your favourite theme and setting!

Speaking of which! Have they ever done an official Warhammer edition of Risk?
