Personally I find these current influencer HH videos very cringey, can't quite put my finger on the reason. Mostly I disagree with the dislike bombing the GW YT vids get but in this case I think the viewers haven't been harsh enough!

You tell me.

Can someone say "feth the HH" and "I'm not a fething fan" then basically say I'm just in it for the free gak and trip, and still be a fan?


I agree. From what I gather, they are just people who paint models. I don't think they play games but I could be wrong as Miniac created a table for A Song of Fire and Ice. I think you can like the Primarch and Special models. I figured the backlash they received on Reddit was entertaining. I play Dark Angels and per Reddit, Miniac was supposed to paint the box army but it was transferred to Original Applesauce instead because Miniac was too busy. Long story short, the Dark Angels weren't received prior to the deadline. Hence why every other Legion has had a picture painted up and the one they were supposed to do didn't. I found that link in this thread (maybe yesterday or Monday?). It was a pain in the butt to find the actual painted models because they were on display at the big event but not in their specific article.

It would be interesting to learn if the influencer angle has any affect on sales for this product. I don't think I've ever seen GW try this sale tactic before, at least not one that I picked up on.

I didn't hear anything about that.....or the Reddit drama either.

I did know about him passing the box to Applesauce, and Miniac also said he gave The Lion about a 60% effort on painting it. I don't think GW used that either.

I like them both and told them both those Youtube comments were a bad look for them, but live and learn.

This was apparently on Miniac's patreon email, but in the modern age take it with a grain of salt. To me he comes over as a bit entitled, but your mileage may vary. I am assuming GW paid for his flights and accommodation.

I wonder if they will bring any of the HH Landraiders into plastic? Pretty iconic vehicle for space marines, even with the spartan being a thing. I'd really love to see the Phobos!

The Spartan kit is 5/6 Land Raider kitand then a Spartan front ramp assembly sprue. To build the Land Raider Proteus, it looks like a track segment gets left out to shorten it.
Hoping for an Armored Proteus option personally.

It also looks super easy for them to swap out the ramp sprue with a different one to make a Cerberus or Typhon tank.

No, not really. They may like 30k for the models but they obviously don't like the game/setting. It appears they wanted to milk their opportunity for all its worth(can't blame them).

You mean Proteus? The sponson sprue in the box is dual build Spartan/Proteus.

I know that Ninjon's Konrad Curze got caught in Customs, and I told him it was Karma for his comments. He hearted the reply on YT.

So I guess Scott got his Karma too.

yeah no sympathy for him, he signed a contract, he broke the contract, the contract was thus terminated.

If I was invited to something like that you can be DAMNED SURE I'd have been more careful. the real clear line here for me thats telling is "I was switching back and forth between my camera and my phone" the smart thing to do would be to ONLY use his camera specificly to avoid a problem like this.

Yeah, I'm sure the NDA was pretty clear and it shows a lack of professionalism to think using your phone was a good idea.

The complaining is just childish. As much as I deride GW for gak they do, this is just plain & simple good business ethics. There needs to be clear conditions/consequences for the breaking of contract and he obviously wasn't scared enuff to Oops it.

Not really a fall from grace, just an unamicable breakup from GW. He is still a great painter, still has plenty of fans and will ultimately do fine without GW for the foreseeable future.

It just all seems a bit insincere, we are all human and all do wrong. When we do best to just hold up your hands to admit it.

Anyway...Heresy. I am jonesing to get my hands on that launch box.

The "Land Raider" & "Spartan" labels are visible in Tale of Painters photos:
Spoiler:




It might just be that it's called a "Land Raider Spartan" now, but it does kind of look like you could build a Land Raider Proteus out of it...

He posted pics of the display cabinets early.

The contemptor in the picture is the plastic one that we've seen BUT it has parts from a not yet shown upgrade sprue.

You can see the Relic Contemptor details on the front and a Kheres assault cannon, neither of which is in the box set.


Is it just me, or is that the betrayal at calth contemptor?

They both say they aren't HH fans in terms of playing the game. In terms of painting the models, they are huge fans. They even say it in the Youtube link just above.

Do I care if they are "real" fans? Not really. I don't look to them for anything other than painting.

As far as these YouTube Content Creators/ GW Painting People - I like Tyler Mengel more because the guy is always posting AOS stuff and asking for list suggestions, provides feedback, and then follows back up with you when you follow his guide (I love his Imperial Fist color scheme - glazing yellows). Same goes for his Maggotkin - if you're on any FB message boards, he is really active. I'd also assume he does the same with Nighthaunt now that they are getting a new book.


Seconded. Tyler is a great guy, all around. Just a very nice dude and a fabulous painter. I find his guides really accessible and he's very helpful when people have questions.

especially as I doubt he did GW stuff to support GW, he proably did it because the "clicks" for a video about painting space marines are proably a good deal higher then for videos about painting... I dunno.. AGOF&I
