  1. I got this wrong btw, i could have sworn we did have a relic but i can't find it. Oh hum...
  2. Chaos Knights get a relic that gives you an invun save to melee attacks, do imp Knights not get something similar? Or were you running it as an admech force? I know it's disheartening when you lose in such a way. I play Death Guard and it was a bit depressing getting stomped every game but our PA gave us some new tools as well as some of the 9th rule changes which favour us nicely. Let's hope our new codex doesn't fuck us over.
  3. New Death Guard codex November or December as well. There were a couple of other models in the DG screenshot that suggest a 40k version of the Feculent Gnarlmaw as well, a sort of Plague Furnace as it's been dubbed.
  4. The Forge World Indexes has(had) rules for Traitor Guard but they were a little poor considering you could have spent a small fortune buying models for it and spend time converting and painting them. They could take most of what the regular Imperial Guard could take but were ham stringed by even poorer morale rules. The Indexes are getting re-written by GW themselves and are imminent but that could be just after 9th launch or ages away
  5. Not sure where else to put this but a proof of concept for an animated Judge Dredd series has shown up on the internet. Don't think it's what you'd consider "leaked" but was put out by one of the artists who worked on it. Article: https://downthetubes.net/?p=118920 EDIT: bah, been taken down/hidden. Must have been a slip up on the artist.
  6. In Age of Sigmar they roll each turn to see who goes first. I've never played AoS but it seems like the biggest bugbear for most players, a double go can pretty much end a game from what i gather. Although that'll be dependent on the faction i suppose. Not sure it would work in 40k since there's a lot of shooting compared to AoS.
  7. There's some leaked pictures of the possible box set which, amongst others, can be found here. Edit: most officially posted on the Warhammer Community site now. Will be the first time I've played across editions. Not overly fussed about a Necron Vs Primaris Marine box, although they look nice models. I'm still waiting for the next 2 (of 3) psychic awakening books to drop as they have stuff for my factions. Also just read The Proginator and Clonelord which are Fabius Bile books and really like the character, so will get the model when it finally gets r
  8. Do you definitely need to be within 100m of your friend in order to trade Pokémon? I have 2 separate special research tasks that require me to trade Pokémon and the only "friends" are those that I've befriended here and I'm sure none of you are anywhere near me looking at the gift locations I've been sent. Ho-hum
  9. Took some better photo's of my Chaos Knight. Spoilered over 2 posts, sorry.
  10. Yeah, the only reason i magnetised the waist is so i can transport the Knights in smaller boxes. The box i have, is just one from B&Q with a magnetic sheet stuck in the bottom and magnets under the base of the Knight. It isn't as stuck as i'd hoped but it does stop them from sliding around in the box.
  11. The first of the Catachan Colonels that was sent to the independent store i play at, was "raffled" off. It was £1 a "ticket" and £700 raised for NHS charities. I didn't win the model but he does have 3 more so we'll see what happens.
  12. It would also be good if you had some kind of electric hobby drill. I had to hollow out the arm bits and it would have been hard for me to do without an electric drill.
  13. The only thing I would say is the arms can seem a little wobbly at times, the way I've done it. I don't know if there's a better way to magnetise the arms but you'd probably have to start buying spare arm bits and it could start getting expensive and time consuming.
  14. Ok, sorry for the poorly lit pictures, i'll take better ones once i've finished it: The Knight with the loadout i'll try first: Gating Gun and Battle Cannon with Iron Storm Missile Pod (I've just realised I've placed it on backwards for the pic ) The Thermal Cannon and Battle Cannon share the same body but have different fronts which i've magnetised. The Gatling gun is it's own weapon and just need magnetising to fit the upper arm. The upper arm which has had a bit snipped off and the magnet inserted. The other weapon
  15. yep, you get both and if that's all you're after you can just glue them together as they don't share anything.
  16. It's odd, i don't know why anyone wouldn't just buy the Canis Rex box, it's no more expensive than the other Knights (except Castellan cos that's a different class) and you get extra sprues to make the Canis Rex model. I have just about finished a Knight that I've converted into a Chaos version and used the Canis Rex box set. The Chaos versions of the Imperial Knights (Despoilers) can mix and match the weapons so I've magnetised them. It's the second Knight i've magnetised (I did the new Chaos Knight) and it's "easy" enough, you just have to get your head around which parts need ma
  17. I didn't mean to be quite so off, I was just disappointed that the numbers per store were quite so low, particularly as they get to keep the money. The model could be sold ten times over, perhaps more, at the shop, as everyone in the Facebook chat loved the sculpt. I'd have bought it and I don't even collect Imperium stuff, let alone Guard.
  18. The local independent store i buy from is classed as the second highest tier of stores (presumably independent stores) and at that level there are only getting 4 of the Catachan Colonel. So unless they expect them to sell for silly amounts it's not exactly the shot in the arm that it's been billed as. The owner said he's not going to sell them but use them in other ways. It's may be meant to help drive business to the (independent) stores but he doesn't carry loads of stock, as he's an independent, which, over the last few weeks will have been chipped away so i'm not sure he could
  19. Part 5 of Astartes premiered last night. Kind of goes of on a tangent but after his recent problems with the channel I'm not surprised it's a bit disjointed. Still awesome though. Edit: Having watched it a few more times and reading a couple of YouTube comments(!) i can follow the story a bit better. It could have definitely done with a couple more establishing shots to give some context to the relationships of the protagonists.
  20. You need to be able to bake down the displacement maps into the geometry because when you take the model into whatever printing package you use, the map will (probably) be removed and revert to the underlying mesh, which I presume will be basic. On that note I have no idea if Blender can do that but it's something to bear in mind. Edit: a quick Google suggests you can.
  21. I think the problem is not necessarily that you get bad service, it's more where they get the keys from. I may be wrong but i think G2A was one of the slightly dodgier providers with CDKeys been the only one that i know of that seems to have a good rep.
  22. Renewed for series 6 and 7: https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/5701/more_inside_no_9/
