Well, that was interesting. I now feel much better about myself and my decision to order the new Fronteris set, at 20% discount, despite already having a big pile of unpainted terrain (that I now understand to be, in fact, fairly small).

Glad that I‘m normal after all. Please send pictures when it’s all built and painted.

fwiw this brief "Pile of shame" wankery was the highlight of the thread for me. Maybe a threas should be made for it, but where? General discussion I suppose?


Me apparently being one of the pile of shame w ankers, started off with me explaining how to get the secontor mechanicus sprues for £4 per each and where to get the sets for 50% off in the uk. Then HBMC wanted an explanation in to why I wanted to certain quantities of things in my collection. Not that I would question his reasoning of having boxes in his bedroom full of plastic crack. It's self explanatory

I wanted to share my painted collection in the other sections but if I'm honest I've been put off.

Please do. That‘s what this forum is here for.

I think the point here is notsomuch about someone buying loads of boxes generally regarded as having decent value. This is actually about the opposite, as in, you will not be seeing anyone buying 14 boxes of this terrain at these prices.

My point was it will come in some great deals.

I.e. you will see it in a kill team set at some point.

Then there will be a hatchatte weekly magazine with it.

As someone who has bought most of the GW terrain including both styles of realm of battle board, I won't be picking up this set. $220 for 3 small buildings, some fencing, and a couple 3x3 platforms is just insane. Removed - No politics

Mine got deleted. I understand it's OT (no denying that) - strange there not just a red text "Deleted" where my post used to be. Must have been quite inflammatory!

/Edit - I made a new thread in Dakka general, please add your pics there! (I was so surprised to see the extent of the collections in this thread, I thought my own is substantial but now I see that my hoard is actually unexceptional!). Post your rare stuff there too : )

Well, Rampart terrain by Archon Studios did inflate by a third on their latest KS IIRC. So it's not just GW. Though GW is quite ahead of the pack pricewise.

I mean forgeworld had renegades and heretics but your traitor guard wait may be over as the huge confirmed leak that had squats in it also said we are getting renegade guard ala BSF style soooo.

On topic I got this set and I have a decent amount of terrain as well but a friend is helping me paint and I build like a madman so I’m currently only behind on my zone mortalis boxes… this fronteris set will be completed before that because it’s for a seperate board we are currently completing.

They will be ways of getting old of this far cheaper in the future. I perssonally have 100's of terrian sprues of sector mechanicus. I paid £4 per spue from the Conquest issues with the 50% off sale.

Then element games are selling the kill team battle zones in there clearence range for £30 with the boards too.

Just got to hold out.

However I do have a problem. I probably have the biggest pile of shame on here!




We need to start a Dakka whales thread where we can post and compare pile of shame pics, mine is comparable, possibly even larger, but not as duplicative as yours.

I'll try to post some photos later today.

EDIT - See the other thread, cool cool

This is sadly the case with today´s customers. Just no spine. Reminds me of a dialogue with the former local GW store manager. He told me this back in the day:

Manager: "Customer steps into store. Rants about insane prices of WHFB Witch Elves. Proceeds to buy two boxes. Leaves in a huff."

Sad, just sad. Because of these people there will be no limit to GW´s greed.

Whilst the prices are mental and I'm in no way happy with them, it's not really fair to blame people for paying for something they want. The prices are what they are because they know enough people consider it acceptable and that threshold is personal to each shopper. You can't be angry because someone else is willing to use their cash how they want.

"Machine guns? We don't need no stinkin' machine guns!" - Ferdinand Porsche, maybe.

It doesn't take much to get me on board with a tracked bunker, but it's a little light on armaments. I'm not a fan of GW's tank kits of recent years that have a ton of guns on them, but this conversion goes the exact opposite direction. There's a sweet spot to hit somewhere in the middle in my opinion.

Could have possibly benefited from the equivalent of one of those old Imperial Guard dozer blades with actual blades sticking out the front. And have the gothic arches on the front repeated on the sides instead of the empty panels.

It's definitely nice of GW to show off the occasional conversion on Warhammer Community. It's all too easy these days to get the idea that they're opposed to conversions.

It looks like a really expensive way to dunk on GW for their blocky tank designs. Then GW featured it.

Well I just pulled the trigger on the big box and the bunker/wall box. By my count it will give me 6' or so of walls and bunkers, plus a landing pad, perfect for either my space port or Arbites Fortress Precinct.

Does it have issues, yes. Starting the with the price. But really it's pretty good and fits right in with stuff I am enthusiastic about.

Now it can join the closet of shame...

(Need to get to that...)

I cannot recommend enough Reaper for weird random... stuff. Especially the Bones line. I have a bag of monsters ready to become bizarre alien fauna.

To specifically answer your question, another way to go is toy dinosaurs, paint them as black and white cows, add bells or something and you'd got an off-putting alien farm.

It's neat but a bit too... vicious looking. Anyone know of a more docile looking beast to use for Aurochs, Grox, or any other number of vaguely bovine ish alien meat sources?
