I've got Thousand Sons, a small group of Carmine Blades, and some various small stuff for Space Hulk use

>>44531862
Because sometimes I don't want to only go fast. Sometimes I want to drop some sexy robed terminator knights on them as well. Also Ravenwing Black Knights and Interromancy are far cooler than anything in the SM codex.

As for Tau, I really like the suits. I like dropping down and unloading fusion and plasma. I like bouncing around in my enemy's deployment zone and charging my Fusion Blade commander into an enemy unit. I even enjoy knowing that charging him in there was a bad idea, but god damn Farsight's model has a sword and I'm gonna use it.

Still liked their old fluff more, and the actual models look oddly out of place for 40K.
Too smooth, to military, not enough huge, skulls, or detail.
It's like they had a totally new set of dudes design them, then got their main guys to make the doofiest looking transport they could.

Warp Spiders shoot monofilament wire to turn people into jelly. They do this after jumping through literal hell to arrive there is the blink of an eye, repeatedly. Fucking metal.
>Guard
Imperial Veterans are the only ones you can really trust with special weapons. They can shoot as well as a space monk or space elf that has been doing this shit for 100s of years, just because they've seen THAT much shit.
>Chaos
Chosen models, especially those from Dark Vengeance, are fucking sex. Fuck stats, they look perfect. That is all.
>Space Marines
Probably Dreadnaughts. SM are easy to paint, but they look so bland. Even special characters lack little details to get lost in. Honor guard are pretty good too.
>Tau
Kroot and Vespid. They actually have some flavor and don't look doofy, unlike most of the army. Broadsides are also acceptable.

The Haruspex just looks like a pants-shitting horror that I'd fail an San Check against.

I stopped playing early 2010, however I still have all my Tyranids.

1 Old One Eye
4 Hive Tyrants
2 Broodlords
96 Gargoyles
32 Reavers

Grey Knights-Terminators just look so good. Those angular helmets are perfect.

Tyranids-The Swarmlord looks great, too bad he's just a fire magnet.

CSM-Tie between the Chaos Sorcerer and Warpsmith. I love all the mechatendrils on the latter.

Skitarii-The Ironstrider looks amazing, the epitome of 40k's stupid/gothic/awesome aesthetic.

Imperial Fists-Devastators. Those new models look great.

Stormsurges, mostly because they remind me of my favorite mech design from the Armored Core games: a super-heavy suit with racks and racks of missiles instead of arms. Sadly they're too good for most games I play. I'm only ever going to take mine to tournaments.

"No man, Tempestus Scions. They're the new stormtroopers."
"Never heard of them, is that a supplement for guard?"
"No, it is its own codex. Think elite Imperial Guard teams."
"I don't like playing against Forgeworld man, you got anything else?"

It took me to showing the dude the fucking boxes on the shelf to show that Scions were not Forgeworld and in fact their own army. He was CONVINCED that because I had Valkyries I was playing specifically IG with some bullshit rules.

Tau - Hammerhead gunship. I love the idea of an alien Gun Motor Carriage, hiding in the shadows, shooting a killer snapshot and just darting away. Also, Fire Warriors look slick and operator as fuck

any plastic safe degreaser should work. Simple Green is the common reply, but I find it doesn't get into crevices very well. Any exposed areas will have the paint sheeting off, and it'll definitely soften any in the cracks. A stiff toothbrush should get most of it. I remember somebody posting a better option in a w.i.p. thread but didn't save the name.

If those rocks are held on with regular white glue, it should break down when submerged for a day or two.

I like the idea of the Scions but I'm really not a fan of the models in 40k. I'd use them for Inquisition stormtroopers since they've got that look of a private army/house bodyguard but not quite the grinding war machine of the Imperium at large.

Really depends. The new bundles are 85 bucks and should be enough to see if it's something you enjoy. Expect to spend a bit (about 100 or so) on hobby supplies.

It's cheaper than a lot of hobbies.

Modelling is a huge part of the hobby. If you enjoy art projects or military models (which I do), then Citadel models are exquisite, easy to work with and customize, and easy to acquire.

They are cheaper than model railroads, but MSRP is pretty steep. I get everything from secondhand for bits and projects, and then to support my FLGS I buy my hobby supplies and books, scenery, and anything that is close in cost from them. I also bring in new players, buy refreshments and beers, and try to support the place I play.

It's fun. My friends and I often talk about ideas for new units we want to build, army ideas, bounce lists off each other. I play about once a week for 4-5 hours; I try to paint or hobby about the same. I spend another 5 hours talking/researching about the hobby.

15 hours a week of entertainment goes a long way.

Depends on what you want.

Simple green, undiluted for 72 hours, then use a sonicare toothbrush to blast the paint off. Do it under running water unless you want paint debris everywhere.

Play Inquisition. Don't have many options.

Planning out a CSM army, getting back into the game after a long time away.

Alpha Legion: Mechanical "hydra" themed, w/ Dark Mechanicum. Daemon Engines, mark of Slaanesh ("Perfection of the machine", daemonettes riding engines), Havocs, Noise Marines with mechanized embellishments, using Skitarii for Cultist units. Chosen squad of Alpha Legion veterans is in Heresy-era mk. 4/5 armor (as pictured). No visible faces, idea being the actual people under the gear is totally interchangeable. Warpsmith HQ is actually a heavily-converted Magos. Trying to see if an old Daemonette head can be worked onto it to give them impression of a cyber-medusa-type character. They're in it to seize resources and work their agenda.

World Eaters: Raptors, Helbrutes, Berserkers. Most heavily mutated, feral aspect, bared faces. Emphasis on options with heavy randomized element, reflecting uncontrollable nature of Khornate warriors. HQ is Kharn, because of course he is. They're in it for mayhem and carnage.

Fallen Angels: Bikers, Terminators, Plague Marines, Nurgle themes. Heavy on the "faded glory" idea, with knightly trappings gone to decay. HQ is Chaos Lord inspired by Artorias from Dark Souls -- Mark of Nurgle, leaking tarry corruption from armor, Murder Sword. They're in it because they retain a shred of desire to die honorably, despite being basically unable to die permanently.

I love doing conversions. I'm not sure how competitive this army will be, but I have more fun being artistic than min/maxing.

None because this hobby is too fucking expensive. Is Warmachine a better option if you don't shit cash? It's a WH ripoff anyway.

I'd have to go with Ultrasmirfs for my favorite ones to play. I don't know how or why I like them, but after reading the Horus Heresy books, Guillimen is my favorite Primarch purely because he seems far more human than any other.
>>
Eldar - 6 Fire Dragons in a Falcon, multiple, launch at riptides after something else charges.
30k Death Guard - Mortarion.

Tyranids- Hive Tyrant (Can be kitted out to any situation. Really good generic HQ)
Chaos Space Marines- Defilers (I play Iron Warriors, so they're practically a must take. Love that they're good at range and CC)
Chaos Daemons- Bloodthirster (BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!)

Honestly, it's not that bad.
Look at fishing, that's like around $600 minimum, plus a boat and a licence.

Going by that illustration, I could definitely see Daniel Craig playing him.

But yeah, he's an okay guy. A good voice of "shit's fucked, how do we un-fuck it" rather than "shit's fucked, let's fuck their shit up too". And it's reasonable for him to feel that way after trying to go full vengeance and just having it turn the situation with Angron and Lorgar somehow even worse.

Also, as cliche as the Ultrasmurfs are, they look really, REALLY good when painted correctly. I'd probably grab a bunch of Black Templar and Dark Angels accessories just to further decorate them.

Even though other chapter masters have fucked up, gotta give it to azrael, screwing over the first fucking legion for ten thousand years has got to be the biggest fuck ups in 40k

Repent! For tomorrow you die!
Remember, a moment of laxatives spawns a lifetime of heresy.

The Emperor never needed laxatives and neither should you.

Tau - Crisis

I play Necrons, Tau, Thousand Sons CSM and Khornate CSM/Daemonkin. All casual (no Decurions or battlesuit spam). I'll list the fave units I play.

>Necrons
Doomsday Ark. Huge range, blast, max strength, best AP. Plus it looks awesome.
>Tau
Stealthsuits. I love everything about these versatile and autistic motherfuckers. They're the Solid Snakes in my lists.
>Thousand Sons
Rubric Marines. Overpriced? Definitely. One-trick ponies? Of course. Fucking immortal and effective at what they do? Extremely. Plus who doesn't love them hats?
Forgefiends also, mine are Sphinxes. Good allrounder firepower and a badass look to boot.
>Khorne/KDK
Bloodthirster/DP, because Khornate daemons just look metal as hell. I'm tempted to get the Starter Khorne box just to have a few bloodcrushers because red armoured daemonbulls just look awesome.
