Anyone have a clue as to why the Red Scorpion Reivers are black? If it's becoming acceptable practice for chapters to paint their stealthy Reivers black, I'm going to do it because I think Reivers look best in black.

Dunno...I don't like Reivers in black too much just because they look like a bunch of wannabe Chaplains in black with their skull masks lol

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Well 1/3 are true. Where is that image from?


Why, the Forge World site ;)

Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

Well my Astraeus has literally just arrived.

Love the model or hate it I have to say the kit is outstanding. At first glance it's one of the cleanest ever casts I've seen from FW, even the accelerator cannons are straight!! :)

Very little in the way of mold slippage/lines.

However it is in considerably more pieces than I was expecting - 54 not including the flying stand. So it's not the big hulk of resin I was thinking it would be.

My biggest fear was the flying stand being a bit flimsy or unable to take the weight - no danger there - it's a big old chunk of clear resin, lol.

So I'm very happy with the quality - I will let you know how the build goes though, I see a lot of pinning, drilling, sawing and sanding in my future. :)

I am the slowest builder and painter in the history of the universe but this kit has me quite excited so work permitting might start it this weekend - will certainly post some pics later of the "bits". The box is also satisfyingly heavy. :)

Popped into WHW today. I must say this model is lovely in the flesh. It's a heavy piece of crack!

=][= Released and locked.  I for one very much look forward to seeing some WIPs on this model in the future!  =][=


Losing 'hope' after 10k years just because of a big warp storm? Doesn't sound like my Blood Angels.

Never had hope to begin with; they had duty, and that was enough.
