The rock was acctually for the Warhammer Siege supplement's Siege Equiptment blister.



So it's not usable in normal games of Warhammer then? Damn!

Here's my rock guys.



C&C appreciated.

I think this paint job has a lot going for it. Sadly, it lacks the depth of the second edition red. Perhaps you could add a wash to it to make the crevices really stand out? As it is, I can barely make out the chips in the subpar second edition blood red rock.

I dont blame you, as it is hard to squeeze blood red out of stone. That, and this is very obviously a trish morrison sculpt, which dont help matters any.

It also needs some highlighting. As is, whatever highlighting you've done, if any, is too subtle. Or, worse, is it dipped? That might explain the sloppy uninspiring paint job. And, no, you can't see any of my rocks, I haven't painted them yet.

The red rock is not magnified enough. I can't tell if you even have a highlight on that thing. Anyway, I think that blending and layering 50 layers on it would be a good start to a golden demon. You could even get a few more rocks and, like a good modern artist, attempt to symbolize something with your abstract piece. Anyway, go with an NMM "ore" piece. I think that might win. You can even freehand a symbol on it. Now that I think about it, I am seriously contemplating submitting a rock piece for next year's GD.

KK: Sorry but that's not a rock. That's a boulder. Way out of this league. You're comparing a terminator to a gobbo! Of course one's going to cost more and I'd pay more for the better sculpt too.

I have a question... is this rock compatible with the Modelling Gravel?  I was told that the rock was for 40k while the gravel was Epic scale and thus not compatible.  Anyone have any experience with this?

No, but the problem that I encountered was that it seems to be natural field stone and is incompatible with the Urban Basing Kit. It's too natrural and sticks out like a sore thumb.

I have nothing useful to add.

Getting my broom incase there is shenanigans.

Is it from Lord of the Rings?

I want to be able to use it for 40k. I guess because of the contract they signed, I can't use any Lord of the Rings rocks for Warhammer rocks, nor I can use them at any official GW events.

Someone already did that this year. I think it was titled something like "Frodo and Samwise using a cloak of elvenkind." Or something like that.

I want the special collector's edition rock from the Gotrik and Felix novels. But I'll never take it out of the mylar package so it can appreciate beyond the $29.95 retail price, at least until it gets nerfed in the next edition and I buy it on eBay for $9.95.

Somewhere in southern England.

There was a board wargame years that used scissors/paper/stone as its combat resolution mechanism. Can anyone remember what it was called? It wasn't Panzer Pranks, was it?

There was a dungeon crawl game that used rock/paper/sissors as the combat mechanism. They made rock do points of damage instead just 1 to add "strategy" to the game.

I totally forget what that was called too but its dungeon tile thingies wound up being bases.

Ok, got a question about the rock.  What type of rock is it exactly because according to the fluff certain rocks are harder then others so that would make a difference on the T.  I mean it wouldn't make sense for a sandstone to be just as tough as a Carborundum, right?

Also, if I painted it to look like a garnet but called it a ruby could I still use the rules for lapis lazuli?

I can't wait to covert that to fight against The Emperors Pointy Sticks.  I will call my army "Chaos Rocks!"

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  It's fine for you to have fewer than three rocks in your army, but if you do, you are just begging to lose, and so I am happy to help you with your wish.  Don't start whining when I have the prime number of rocks in my army and roll right over you.

After the rock has been released, my life has changed, I rebased my 150 man guard army, just to use the new GW rocks! Oh man and don't get me started on how excited I am abouttheir net release, official GW twigs, ohh boy they will fit right in with my new rocks!

P.S. Does anyone want to join in on my pyramid scam, I promise I won't take more money from you than GW already has...

DONE!


Rock

Paper

Scissors

 



Of course, the rules for paper are only in IA, so they may not always be allowed in tournaments. Hence the abundance of scissors armies in competitive play.
