About three more bits and I will have the death guard built from the new starter box. Our game store was letting customers buy just the models for $100 (they would pull the hardcover rules out and give you the rest) so I have another full set still on sprue to build.

Well been painting sons of horus models a bit and assembled contemptator assault cannons and 3 scimitar jetbikes magnetizing everything so that I can swap out guns for bikes and arms for dreadnought at will. Have just CCW for dreadnought as alternative for now but will get more guns in future. But for bikes FW is friendly enough to provide every gun so from all meltas to all volkites to heavy bolters with one heavy gun for FA I can do it all!

Beautiful models too so can't wait to get them painted up.

Made a quick pilgrimage to the not local gamestore yesterday to get index imperium 1. Been going through my marines and deciding what's good and what I want to use.

Looking to make up a list of 52 models to paint before allowing myself to pickup DI.

Organizing all of my DKOK bits since I now have the impetus to start getting my guard assembled and primed. Also need to see how my special weapons numbers are holding........

Anyone have any suggestions for a unit of conscripts that might fit with the DKOK range? One of the problems I am running into is that they are much smaller and proportional compared to the current guardsment line(cant wait to see them next to primaris marines) and most of the rest of the GW human line looks cartoonish next to them. Any advice for third party models that would fit as conscripts with the current DKOK? I definately cant afford to make a conscript squad or two from FW...

You could actually try to go old school and get the old metal Cadians.

Just base spraying today most likely. Maybe assemble rhino for blood angels and wash the FW bits for second but house cleaning eats time.

Just ordered about 100 bucks in 3rd party bits to make my 30 noise marines......

Started getting my bases started by putting down the GW texture paint and then priming them. Gonna get the Rhinox Hide Can of Primer afterwards and then its two layers of dry brushing....Prepping like 300 bases so its gonna take a bit haha

People who stopped buying GW but wont stop bitching about it are the vegans of warhammer

I'm totally sick of seeing people use the word loose for lose. You "lose" a game when you don't win. If your clothes are too big they are loose. You don't loose a game unless you somehow release it from captivity. Get it right people! [/grammarnazi]

Some people don't know how to use "There", "Their" and "They're" properly. Here's a helpful video. TLDR; "There" is for direction (The hat is there). "Their" is for possession (It is their ball). "They're" is short for "They are" (They're going to get lunch). I am seeing so many of these errors it is giving me the blood pressure of a 250lb 50 year old with two sick kids. /Public Announcement.

I'd like to have it more or less done in time for game night on Thursday, so hopefully I can make some headway.

I'm contemplating how I want to paint my Primaris from Dark Imperium. I don't really want to just paint them up as Ultramarines, as that sounds incredibly boring to me as I've been painting Ultramarines. Going through some other chapters and trying to decide which one I want to go for. I'm currently stuck between the Scythes of the Emperor and the Mantis Warriors. Both have ample reason to want Primaris in their ranks, it's just a matter of finding a good way to do the color schemes for either of them.

^ So the new guys have shoulders fixed, or are they separate from the torso?
