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.


Have you seen the Victor Hardy version? It is mainlining heroin, and if you turn it upside down you can see richard and the twins next to an upright smile and he has named it "Sesuj". When it got DQ, he whined about the 50,000 hours and 25% of his remaining life force that he had put into the miniature and how no-one appreciates his free hand skill, and in no way was he trying to court contoversey. The name was just a coincidence and people read way to much into things.

2014 will be the year of zero GW purchases. Kneadite instead of GS, no paints or models. 2014 will be the year I finally make the move to military models and away from miniature games.

It is the greatest item GW has ever made available. It desreves all of the attention we can give it. I say we go for 10 pages of praise for the rock. That would be a fine start.

I have nothing useful to add.

Fullhead- That's great! I can't wait 'til a well-painted rock is put up on ebay. I'm sure it'll sell well.

I'm still wondering why they're selling such a great sculpt at such a cheap price. Normally stuff this good costs $15.

Actually, even though it is an open category you still have to have a large %age of your model made of citedal stuff or sculpted by yourself. The new GW rocks aren't as big and this was made by mother nature so the entrant is in fact a dirty cheat. I believe that they should now be banned from all GW shops and GW run tournements - oh wait, that's not a punishment.

ahhhh I see. So what your saying is your not dedicated enough to the hobby to make the effort. Despicable. If you look at the Rackham scenery you with see their rocks have 50 levels of highlights (after 20 glazes and an inking or two), though at least two of your friends will bore you for an least an hour telling you how crap NMM looks on rocks and you should just drybrush it.

Get the latest Cry Havoc. They do a 10 page spread explaining how they did, using phrases like "insist the hightlights" and other badly translated impenetrable phrases. If, whilst reading it, you listen really closely you can hear a frenchman laughing and saying "lets see those stupid Americans try and copy this with these instructions".

Personally, I'm waiting for the Forge World "Rock Update Set", as it's rumored to include 4 sharps, a half dozen blunts, and a packet of pebbles.

I guess dirt would be cool too, but would that be covered in an existing Codex? or the next Imperial Armor book?

I agree with fullhead. I love the Rackham quality of painting that puts 'Eavy Metal to shame. It's also pretty funny how those who can't do NMM complain about it - envy I guess. (I'm working on my highlighting skill via feathering and wet-dry and hopefully I too can do a 500-layer mini someday. Someday...)

Anyone who's waiting on Forgeworld are just setting themselves up for disappointment. The "super rock 5000's" rules made by forgeworld and costing 10x as much will only kill 0.5 MEqs/turn, rather than the original rock which can kill 2.5MEqs/turn.

It is a mini specefically for the campaign codex but it won't be available until part way through the campaign.

Four months later, 2 people in the whole wide world (or universe) who made powerful (x2) rock armies will be heard to whine ad nausem because their highly converted one trick pony army has been banned from GT's. There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth as they complain that they won't be able to use their army ever again in their whole life.

 1,000,000 extra people join Dakka to say how this has personally affected them (x4) and never post again. One of those poster will say one of his friends knows some-one who played against some whose sister was married to a man who actually had a rock army and if we don't join a petition "it could be your army next". At least 10 people will respond saying the army isn't hard to play against and that they have never ever lost a game of 40k ever in their whole life and other people's tactics suck.

Someone will then say that RAW makes that list totally illegal, and their will be a 4 page heated (x5) debate over the word "rock" and whether or not it can be also armed with a pebble.

Accurate?
