Well seeing as you have Dante again I'll bring the Sanguinor and SG again, so that's one option scrubbed off :P

MY VOTE is the Thunderhawk of course.


That presumes we're on the same team which isn't guaranteed. I'll bring it up in the rules discussions over the coming months.

As for the Thunderhawk, that'll probably be everyone's preference but I really don't think it's feasible...

Small update regarding the forthcoming Apocalypse (which now has ten participants...)

 

I've settled on what I feel I can prepare for it and it looks something like this (likely completed in this order too):

  • Repairing and finishing my Stormraven  - Nov 30th (RTS vow)
  • Painting twenty Mk IV BaC Marines - includes four Sergeants, three special weapons and four heavy weapons (magnetisation likely) - Doing this allows me to field an Angel's Blade in addition to everything else ohmy.png
  • Magnetise my Imperial Knight

With the following bonuses assuming I finish on time:

  • Paint a Predator - Means my Pred formation has four models
  • Scratchbuild a Void Shield Generator - had a feasible idea for this for years.
  • Paint any extraneous hunte-killer missiles and pintle-mounted stormbolters - a game this big is strictly WYSIWYG
  • Make paint ten counts-as Daemonettes and a counts-as Zarakeniel - because why not? 
  • Magnetise/fix my Cerberus

  • Dolchiate Remembrancer and CaptainHelion like this

Apparently, but I've already got ten Mantis Warriors coming in. Why? because if I run Malefic Daemonology it means I don't have to use my Dark Elves as counts-as Daemons!

Metallic Red

 

Been experimenting with a metallic red armour scheme for my Terchmarines, but I'm not quite there yet.

 

1st attempt:

 

Spoiler

 

2nd attempt (which also showcases the red I've got on my Stormraven)

 

Spoiler

 

Basically, it looks like I've still got some developing to do.

 

"Oh, but Jolemai," I hear you ask, "why not buy some Carroburg Crimson/Citadel Tint Set/Tamiya Clear?"

 

We basically, I've got a lifetime supply of Mithril Silver and Red Wash and basically, I'd rather try and use it up before purchasing something else. I've also got some Purple Wash, so maybe try attempt two, but go for a mix of Red and Purple Wash at ratio of 3:1 (and enough silver to make it work)?

Is this the old "Red Ink" ?

 

That is what I used over the Retributor Gold on my TDA for the Apoc and after 2 coats that gave an ace finish. Flash is dulling it a little bit as it's flooded with light, but otherwise it's  a very rich metallic blood red - more BA than Thousand Sons if you will.

 

The blood drops are the same.

 

I think the gold will give you that much richer base to work from and a warmer colour. Silver is the metallic from of white, and white + red = pink ;)

I've just been linked this which might work with some modification. I also need to do some trial and error to get a colour similar to Carroburg Crimson (seriously, I don't need to buy more paints!)

That is quite nice! Like a multi-step of mine.

 

Whatever army I end up going with in Heresy it's going to be metallic as hell.

... you actually caught his farseer?  How'd you manage that?

 

Also, did the Crimson Hunters not come in until turn 4?  That was a boon for you...

You did much better than I against a similar list! I drew impossible cards though and we didn't (do now) house rule that you can discard them...

I think being able to discard one card per turn is part of the basic maelstrom rules, and not a house rule, Luther!

Really? We played Escalation where you always have a number of cards equal to the turn number. I thought you could only discard completed cards, or if you've completed everything that can be completed you can discard one additional card?

I had some that were literally impossible (destroy a building when there were none, destroy an MC when there were none), but I also had Kingslayer which was not impossible in the same way, but I couldn't catch the Farseer on the bike. So because I couldn't complete that I couldn't discard anything..?

We always house rule that you discard ones that are conceptually impossible (like destroy a building when there are none) but not ones that are conceptually possible even if they are not functionally possible (like slay the Witch if his Psykers aren't on the table yet, or big game hunter when I have no weapons to hurt it, et cetera). It benefits both players and it makes the game more fun. We started doing that in my group after a deadlock game where we both had multiple impossible cards turn one which made the game a total drag since discarding objectives doesn't actually get you new ones.

Yeah that's how we're gonna play it from now on.

But it's true to say you can't normally choose to discard one of your choice each turn..?

Check the paragraph in the rulebook under "discarding tactical objectives" page 137. You can choose to discard one objective that remains incomplete after scoring completed ones.

Discarding is not dependent upon completing some. It just happens afterwards.

Never said they were, it's all in the end of turn scoring sequence.

You cannot discard an objective you just completed for obvious reasons.

Don't worry about it; it's nice to see my report provoked some discussion for a change.

 

So yeah, you can discard a single Tactical Objective at the end of your turn - of course, the problem here is that you end up having one (or more) cards you cannot achieve in your hand for at least a turn. I don't actually mind this. To me, the whole point of Maelstrom is the fluidity of the Objective system and it represents having to do things during battle with the orders coming from on high. When a card appears that you can't achieve, this "accurately" represents the fog of war; be it incorrect information sent to High Command or be it a delay in the message coming through (technological/warp shenanigans). The game is no less interesting to me because of this but then, there's not a great deal riding on my games other than banter.

 

I do understand why people want to house rule it though.
