Maybe someone should sticky this, so it doesnt float away and anyone new to atomic or warhammer cant find it.



Nah - 'she'll be right I reckon. There tends to be enough activity in this thread to keep it on the first page, and if it did slip off, Im sure I could find a valid reason to bump - Just like I am now :)


Now another thing - Silly twit that I am has only just discovered that I *can* link to posts!! What Im going to do over the weekend is refine the second post of this thread and remove a lot of that data, and have minimal information to reduce clutter, and then links to where people posted their details - This way, you can maintain and update your data yourselves, while still being able to locate people quickly within the second post :) Just Im looking at the list and notice its getting sort of a bitch already and I want to sort that out soon.

A photo of my Space Marine army, ready for further painting:

Apparently the forum doesn't like the filename with 2 dots in it so I can't use the forum thumbnail link provided.
Thanks Khir and MorricMan - I was in a rush when I posted this originally..

Hey guys - Have updated the userlist so its actually useful and not a pain in the arse, so feel free to update or play around with your profiles however you want. In addition, links dont work to profiles where there are images embedded above it. My current recommendation would be is if your unhappy with how it links, find an earlier post where there arnt embedded images above it, and hi-jack it for use for your profile and let me know so I can update the link I forgot how much fun Orks are to do - Been converting the 3 choppas which come in the Black Reach box set to make them look like little Apache choppas (Squaring the nose off and ditching the rockets, and adding "wings" to mount rocket launchers and guns too + HUD displays - Have to do this to the other 3 now as well) to suit in more for the Blood Axe theme. Not to mention the poor bloody Devilfish Im hacking up - Converted the drones so it now has little Gretchin sitting in little pods with rotors on the bottom so they can still hover - I know it doesnt fit in with the rules, but it looks nice :) Wondering: Does anyone has a shitload of little Axes? Due to being a Blood Axe army, every single one of the bastards needs an axe, and then ever more for the bosspoles and vehicle decoration - Thought Id ask here first before looking at Scrapdragon and other online stores. Yes I could make them, but Im talking a couple of hundred here, so need to collect a few

So, what toys did we all buy yesterday? I picked up the new codex, a command squad and 3 of the new scout bikers. The scout bikes are a great kit, several options and bits left over at the end. Now they get to sit around in my "waiting to be done" pile. So many mini's to assemble and paint, so little time.

Hmmm didn't buy anything yesterday but thanks to having tenants in my house back in Canberra I can now afford to think about buying a codex or two...

Still not dead, but now without gall (bladder!). Bought new SM codex and 2 Drop pods for my sons Raven Guard army. Also picked up a Trukk, Weirdboy and Big mek with Shokk attack gun for my budding Waaagh! And some heavy weapons teams, snipers and oficers for my Catachan IG. So, no eating for a while! My orks, which started with the Black Reach box, now includes 15 Burnas, 15 Lootas, 14 Nobz, the grot assitants and technical and the gnarly squigs. Nearly there. Helping snotlings, must go!

*clicks tongue* And by the looks of the Games Workshop online store, their price rise has gone through - 6 bucks for a paint now, and Ork codex I paid 38 is now 42 :( Eh - Was thinking about buying that mega paint set anyways - Loving the foundation paints, plus looks like a nice case to keep all that crap in as well Spent most the weekend converting a recently aquired/salvaged Vindicator tank - Dont like the looted vehicle rules so trying to make it a battlewagon Anyone know some good camera settings for a nokia n95? Trying to take photos of my Orks so I can get some help with painting the skin

there is a tute in a WD from a month or 2 back that looks easy and awesome (for the tale of four gamers thingo). ive gotta paint up a AoBR set for my warhammer club, so ill end up doing them like this. the marines id like to paint up as legion of the damned, but it may be a bit time consuming to do well. also, cant help with the camera settings khir, sorry

Haven't bought anything new for a while, thought I have picked up some Black Reach marines. Man, they are lovely, and will serve as a nice reward for every unit of Guard I finish :) I do not to do some re-jigging for my Tau though. 5th ed is great, but it makes the classic Mech Tau list very challenging, as you generally lack the troops to really take and hold objectives. Gonna need more Kroot, I think.

Is that for Ork skin? What Im doing is, starting off with a black undercoat, then a deep highlighting with Orkhide shade foundation, then dry brush the details out starting with snot green, then goblin green, then a final quick brushing with scorpian green

Sorta thinking I need to get in there with some green wash in between the snot and goblin steps, or save the wash until just before the final snot green step (Could go between the orkhide and snot, but think it'll end up covered by the other dry brushing too much), just to wash away a bit of the grainy look the model gets (Just dont have any green wash atm)

Im not after Orks with brightly colored skin - I like the darkness - Just hoping theres an easy way to smooth the colors out
