Or, if we want to be douches, Codex: Imperial Knights. It has a 80.77% tournament winrate. xD


Don't even go there...

Lizardmen are easily the best fantasy race to get into paint-wise.


I don't know... I've seen some vibrant Lizardmen, sure, but I've seen some absolutely amazingly themed Empire and orc armies out there. The different states of the empire leave a great deal to the imagination; Middenheim in particular is my favourite if only for the kitbashing you can do with marauder kits and, if you're careful, even Space Wolves. I've seen Demigryph Knights converted using the Space Wolf-- wolves, and they looked spectacular.

Chaos armies are also very colourful if you have the mind for it, I've seen some wonderfully painted Tzeentch armies that just blow my mind. Admittedly I've had and painted lizardmen myself though I recently sold them, as well as my ogres, Chaos Space Marines and Necrons...

Currently sitting on some Stormcast Eternals, Skaven, Tau, Tyranids, Space Marines and Uruk-Hai.

I need a life.

EDIT: for some reason the forum is broke and I'm posting on Amber instead of Chillmire..? Whatever.

To anyone that grew up watching the Teen Titans T.V. show and is disappointed at whatever it is 'Go' turned out to be, I just stumbled onto THIS interesting little nugglet:

Just... wow. I have never seen a series so thoroughly deconstruct its own flaws like that before. I reckon everyone involved knows 'Go' is a really big disappointment, considering what came before, which is a shame given the effort the team put into 'Go'. Here's hoping that's not just an empty promise.

I don't know


They're probably not the army you can get the 'most' out of, but I argue they are the army that is the easiest to get the best from. They have a low skill floor and a relatively low skill ceiling. They're never 'too' finicky and you can get a lot of great looking models together without having to put too much effort into the painting.
Chaos, all the way. The most conversation freedom and no real uniformity allows for a lot of fun stuff.

You can do that with any army nowadays and make them look great on the board, what with the surge of the dreaded army painter. Washes help too.

The ones I ejoyed painting the most was Tomb Kings, and the least Lizardmen. Lizardmen can be ink-painted head to toe, instead Tomb Kings have lot of details on them to risk Ink-painting.

Sitting on Chaos Demons (Nure-Slaanesh), Grey Knights, Tyranids and a little squad of Tomb Kings.
Morning folk, how are we?
I got up at 5 a.m. to go to the lab early and I have to go back in a few hours. Hopefully I'll be out before 9 p.m. Then I have a similarly horrible day tomorrow. Chances are I'm going to screw something up so I'm not sure why I'm even bothering putting myself through this to get 12 samples prepared at once instead of 6 at a time.
Playing HotS. Illidunk Slamrage is fun.
Whhhhy did I wake up at 9

Grenades, you say, Blaithe? Sounds like Shu is staying true to her nature, eh?


I think that was some other soldier, though.

Everyone gets to carry regular grenades, when equipped with them, but Grenadier has a Grenade launcher (can fire them farther, than it can be thrown by others) and extra grenade-only equipment slot, and a skill tree dedicated to the launcher's use (other skill tree is for minigun, and the abilities can be mixed, you can pick from either tree each level, but only one of them, and there's no respec).

But yes, Shu is a grenadier. Things it lets her do, aside from regular killing enemies, is also destroying the enviroment. In one mission, with the goal of freeing a prisoner, I entered the building through the door, freed him, and made my own exit by having Shu blow up the nearby wall, for example.

Bob Ross (RIP).
Carrying on from last night, here's my current small collection of warhammer figures

This is my Orc Army so far: http://imgur.com/L1Tzptl

This is my personal favorite http://imgur.com/Lbh32La http://imgur.com/9nFYrxf

Sorry about the lighting, only got one bulb working in here, still need to get them changed.... also need to dust my room down a bit...

Hopefully going to paint my wood elves today if time allows it.
My local store had some raffle charity event thing, and I won this insanely well-painted Penitent Engine. I don't have photos tho :c it's down at my parent's place in Edinburgh and the arms fell off
