I have a large Therian force, but I've never played the game. Just bought them 'cause I liked the minis.

Never could get the super-rare walker though.

Still got my Therians in a box somewhere. I hardly played while it was actually on sale, and not nowadays. Perhaps I could use 'em as necrons?

It never really took of fin my meta. Part of the issue was that our meta wasn't prepared for a pre-painted game scene. That changed a few years later with X-Wing, but Star Wars helped break that mold.

I've got a bunch of the minis and still read the fluff in the army books from time to time, but I've never played the game.

I would recommend to anyone who has enough minis to give it a shot, the game is really a lot of fun for at least my group there are some amazingly hard to find models and ebay is chilling in its prices but still, we have been slowly building up.

Couple of people in my group were thinking of selling off their collections. So they arranged to have one last game night this past Saturday.

Well, they ended up playing again tonight ...

I bought the Therians because they look cool, as I said, and because I invented a race for our homebrew sector that we have set 40K and 40K RPG games in, and wanted something to represent them. They fit really well.

Even got to write 'em into the actual background a bit with the Enemies Without book for DH2.0 (not the Therians, obviously, but the race I made that I use the Therians to rep in-game).

Having just looked through the army books this past weekend, a good deal of the art is really quite high in quality. The Therian stuff is easily my favorite. Some truly creepy stuff! Using them for 40K RPG is a great idea.

I had some years ago, but sold them. I want to find some to either play again, or repurpose the minis.

you can still find stuff, its getting harder (and more expensive) but there are still stockpiles around, I was able to acquire a relatively cheap Red Block type 1 strider today "Molot". Allows me to really push "Frontline" as a solid build for all mechanized force " We have been having a LOT of fun with the AT-43 Tactics RPG. our only regret is that ONI and COGs came out after it did

We'll find out soon enough eh.

I also bought an army of Therians because they looked cool, including I think the big walker, but I ended up completely going off the concept I had for the army so they've just been sat in a cupboard for a few years as I consistently fail to find the energy to resell them.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Afraid not. I have(intact, unopened boxes) 6x Storm Golems Unit, 2x Storm Golems Attachment, 1x Assault Golems Attachment, 2x Bane Goliaths Unit, 2x Wrath Golgoth Unit, and 1x Baal Golgoth. I think I might also have a bunch of loose Medusas sitting in a drawer somewhere.

Level 1 walkers are the only Therians I DON'T have. Never liked the sculpts, as Therians. Would do very nicely for AdMech though, they are the right kind of ugly.

I considered making some out of eldar jetbike canopies, with three mechanical spider legs underneath and two mechanical scything talons, all connected to an armature. I sourced everything except the talons.
Gave up long ago.

Yeah the Hekat Golgoths are easy to find. I've got a couple of them.

The Succubus ones are the toughies. Can't find them anywhere. And to think, at one stage there were fields of them...

Oh, and Manchu, Doug doesn't have any spare. x2

Ah sorry about that, I think he might have just sold off his spare Therians like last week. As posted above, the idea was we would get together for one last hurrah before selling everything but it looks like people had too much fun playing again to actually go through with the total purge.

The opposite here, kitbashing I am very good at, painting less so. I am OK qualitywise, but I am uncomfortable with it enough that I cant get down to it as often as I should. This is proably because I cannot easily match my own standards.

However that wasnt the issue here, but optics. I do dislike the level 1 Golgoths, love everything else. There was another factor, Tiamat has a routine that for a simple expenditure of poser points she should summon level 1 walkers. At-43 was very badly balanced as that summons was a free throw in ability, or an already powerhouse faction that summoned powerful units without limit. However if I dont have any level 1s Tiamat can't spam them.

I bought into the game with the Damocles demo set, and have about 3,000+AP each of Therians, Red Blok, UNA, and Karmans. Avoided the Cogs and Oni as they were hideously unbalanced with a capitol 'WTF'.

I think both it and the Confrontation system are really fun games, doubly so because of the shared core rules. The Universal Table of Resolution is a thing of simple genious.

I have an ongoing project where I am using the PDF for the unreleased Goblin army in the Aarklash universe with Skaven, making them literally "The army of the Rat", as lots of Skaven actually have a pseudo-samurai feel if you paint them right, with Warhammer Ogres as their Dai-Bakemono allies, including a Leadbelcher with some clanrat crew as a counts-as for their Mountainbreaker artillery piece.

I also have 2-3,000ap of Griffon, Dirz, and Wolfen. Thanks to the FFG fire sales, I have at least one of everything for each of the C:AoR and AT-43 armies I own.
