Yeah, the javelins in the quiver thing and the loose one are part of the same set.  You get five sprues per set, each one with two quivers and one loose.  Needless to say I had to buy two sets, as I didn't fancy sculpting my own javelins.

Been a long time since you broke the 1000 mark isn't it beefcake?  Or the 2000 for that matter.

The first of the next squad of guardsmen.  This is the final squad I currently have to assemble.  The guys with the flails have been primed and lined.  This squad is inspired by the Aiel from WoT.  There will be nine guys with javelins, possibly the champion will have a javelin in each hand, with his shield on his back and there will be a standard bearer, drummer and priest in the squad as well.  The hand holding the javelin was a bugger because I hollowed out his hand and curled it a bit to hold the weapon better.  It looks funny pointed behind him, but my excuse is he is raising it to throw.  Javelins are by crocodile games and shields are skaven clanrat's.  Not sure yet if I will change the shield at all.  Any suggestions?  My putty skills aren't great though.

Pretty good pictures considering they were taken with my less than a month old new cell phone.



 :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: woot for my 1000th post!

I think I got in on time. Just made a purchase with about 10 minutes to go. Stuff not in stock though which isn't a problem.

What'd ya get? :wink:

 :nah: :nah: :nah: Not looking!!  Not looking!!  Not looking!!  Mustn't look. :paranoid2:  I think I got away without looking.  I think that it would be a bad thing for me to go to this site.  I'd want to buy lots of old games and I can't afford it.

Todays episode:  Was going to my grandparents after dinner this evening (on my scooter of course), when what happens?  A wasp hits me in the face, gets under my glasses and stings me under the eye and on the nose.  So I turn around and go home to get ice because its swelling up, then have to phone and explain why I'm not going to be there. :swear:

That had been discussed too, in another thread.  Turns out you have to be a US citizen to use kickstarter to get money, but not to give it.

Bloody brilliant! :applause: :applause: :applause:

I hope they send you a free kit!

I'd think that would be the minimum.  But who knows.

Done a bit of test fitting of parts - will have to wait until next week when I've got some time to concentrate on it properly ...... wouldn't want to mess it up ! :angel:

Slacker!  :wink:

Check the topic titled '1st ever heresy dragon....' It is all there.  Andy's got a sale going right now to generate funds to purchase a larger mold tin to speed things up.  The dragon has been what could be called stubborn in the casting department.

ARGH!  Dagnabbit!!! I doubt the money I had intended to shuffle your way will be freed up by then.  It is apparently supposed to be released by the 18th.   :swear:  Any way I can buy now to get the sale but wait a few days to pay?

Yeah, what everyone else said.  That is soo cool. :jawdrop:

You can all help by getting your mates to buy some figures e.g. about 7 complete gang collections would do it.

Well the gangers aren't really my thing but I was thinking about using some of the money I made off ebay for more bits and bobs for my Dark Brethren army, like more grubs and priests and command groups.  Extra bases too.  Dragons to the people!!!

PS:  Andy, any idea when 30mm display bases will be back in stock?
They are in stock, the cart stock level needs updating...

Well, it looks like my contribution to dragon making is going to have to wait another couple of days.  The money I made from evilbay is on hold because I haven't got much sales history.  Fair enough purchase history but, stupid evilbaypolicywhatallcrap.

Yeah, my gaming group consists of only me as well, I'm a closet geek. So I have absolutely no idea why I even started these.

It's a disease.  It happens.  It's ok

1272
I would take a look at pictures, like those below, then go back to the claw you've got and round it off around the edges and between the fingers, maybe even make the segments between joints a bit longer and a little more pronounced.  Then again, I am horrible at sculpting, so you may not want to listen to anything I've said. :angel:

PS: The chicken foot creeps me out.

I really like the dungeon tiles too.  I'd be tempted to buy some, even though my gaming group consists of me.  But, they'd also make great bases for some sweet dios.  :swear:  There goes more money, possibly. :thumbup:

Thanks, I'm not very confident with freehand detailing.  But given the nature of these guys it's ok to look a bit crude, it probably should be to think of it.  Crazy guys, living in tunnels, worshipping a maggot thing.  That doesn't really lend itself to artistic and cultural development. :lmao:

Heresy / Tunnel Guard Pick Troops
« on: July 10, 2012, 06:03:18 AM »
Finally finished.  The first of the squads I marginally converted for my tunnel guard army.  The shields and pick heads are from GW Dark Elves.  The picks are repurposed battle standard parts.  They took a long time to paint as life kept getting in the way.  I've decided to change squad numbers a bit and make squads between 9 and 12, mostly because I've decided I like having a standard bearer in each squad.  I'll need to get a couple more command groups for that.

Well beefcake, enjoy.  Everyone else too!
