[Shoutout for a friend!] Blatant Advertising - eBay auctions

Blatant Advertising - eBay auctions


Well it's been an... interesting week, and a significant unexpected expense has got me scrambling to come up with some extra funds. Unfortunately, what this mean is a number of miniatures and whatnot are having to go up on the auction block much earlier than planned. Not what I'd hoped to be doing with them, but needs must when the IRS devil drives I suppose...

Mostly World Eaters at the moment, plus the Iron Hands bikers, the Warhound Titan and a replica Bolt Pistol. There will likely be more going up over the next couple weeks while I dredge through the Closet of Doom for other odds and bobs that I can bear to part with...


Please share this if you know Joel or simply want to help out! Or simply go check out his blog! Here!!

Predator conversion and magnetization [The Rogue Trader]

Originally this was just going to be my take on magnetizing a predator.  After I saw how cool the forward mounted turret on Redscorps predator looked I figured I had to do a version of that too.  All of this was pretty easy, the magnets really easy.  Actually the only problem was when I discovered I'd got the polarity wrong on one and the superglue was doing a phenomenal job.  Anyway, the full story is below the fold.

Warhammer 40,006. Or something like that.

Information about the new updates are starting to show up everywhere, but in case you have missed them, we have...

A price list with release dates - They want how much?
Scans from the next White Dwarf - My Precious
And of course lots of comments on rumors - That's what she said

Most importantly, the base rules are $75 and come out on the 30th.  First posts of people rage-quitting 40K are expected around 12:15 UTC

I wonder what new models the new edition will bring for us to bastardize into some far improved deviant of G dubs original intent?

MWC Blog Post Spotlight - 03

Drkmorals here and you may know me from such posts as "Just Inject the Forgeworld in my veins" and "How to make WAAC gamer's rage quit" However this week let's get on with the spotlight post.

Our hobby tends to be full of very creative people with mad skillz and talents. Every week I run across several things that are cool, interesting, unique, or awesome. Here is one such post.

This week I wanted to shout out Ron over at From the Warp

From the Warp is a site with a huge following and much like this site has it's roots in the hobby side of the game more than the roll dice and make people cry side. This post jumped out at me as Ron puts together a nice article on converting up combi weapons for Terminators inspired by the Forgeworld kit. Not exactly duplication but a very good how to article on process is always helpful in the hobby community. Not to mention with 6th edition coming terminators should be getting a bit of a boost, so you may be fielding them a bit more often. Great work Ron!  How to make terminator combi-weapons

Have a great blog post you want considered for highlight or see something amazing you want to nominate. Feel free to drop me a email Drkmorals AT and point me in the right direction for consideration.

Hornet Class Storm Talon Conversion [Rogue Trader]

Redscorps named his Storm Talon, figured I'd do the same with mine.  With the fact I went with a Skyhammer Missile option and this looks like some kind of insect I went for 'Hornet Class'.
