    Head swaps

    Zorcon & ThatXboxGuy, do either of you partake in Guardian Games Wednesday WH40k league? If so, let me know and I can bring the beak helmets there for the swap.

    Head swaps

    Zorcon, Not sure offhand, but my guess is 10+. I will count them when I get home from work tonight (Dec 10th). These are still on the sprue, and most are in unopened boxes.

    Head swaps

    I have some beak style helmets (preferred by Raven Guard) that I would like to swap for non-beak helmets or heads with no helmets for non-beaky helmets. Figured to ask here before I bought them from a bitz site.

    W: Kill Team Cards/Mats/Books H:Tons and $$$

    Games Workshop on 82nd has 2 x Kill Team starter sets. The one with rule book, admech, genestealers, and terrain. I picked up one yesterday and was told they had 2 left.

    Codices or Indices

    @Sgt Rock and any others, For Kill Team, I was thinking about the First Strike box, to get some Primaries Marines and the Kill Team core manual, then for my second round of purchases, Dark Imperium to expand upon my Primaris Marines (and Plague Marines) and to also get the WH40k rule book (bundled). Is this a good idea, or would it be better to get one of the pre-made Kill Team squads (ie: death watch) then the First Strike box? I have a bunch of non-primaris Marines (need to finish painting them), so I was thinking of killing 2 birds with one stone (per se) with Primaries Marines in the 2 box sets I mentioned, initially the Primaris marines in First Strike would allow me to start playing Kill Team, while I finish painting the rest of my non-primaries marines for the larger 40k games.

    Codices or Indices

    Sgt Rock, I plan on progressing to larger games of wh40k eventually. I wouldn't buy the Codices & Indices right away.

    Codices or Indices

    Thank you to Paxmiles, Ish, Necrontyr for the replies. I have been painting the miniatures as a hobby. I have mostly Space Marines, with some Orks (2 x black reach), was thinking of buying Dark Imperium and First Strike. Kill Team looks interesting, and a shallow end of the pool to try out playing. I was planning my purchases, and didn't know which way to go with Codices over Indices when it comes to priorities. Thank you again for the replies and clarification.

    Codices or Indices

    For example: Is there a reason to buy Codex: Space Marines ($50) over Index: Imperium 1 & 2 ($25 /each), basically the same price. Same with Index: Xenos 1 & 2 I haven't compared them in person, but it seems like the Indices offer more data/stats on a broader range of armies, the individual codices offer more pretty pictures and are focused solely on that particular army.

    Looking to build a 40k community

    I would be interested.
  12. Derek, All My Sons ( http://www.allmysons.com ) is also pretty much always hiring, the manager Andy is a really good dude but he is very strict about certain things. you need to be there no later then 7am to get work that day, I always showed up at 645am. Drivers make more then Lumpers. Might take a few days or even a week of showing up at 645am to make sure you get assigned to a Truck/job regularly. Not sure if you have ever moved furniture before, but usually the first 1-2 weeks is rough while your body gets use to that kind of work. Most people don't make it past the first week, one of the reasons they are always hiring. Also, most jobs tip 10-20$ per mover on average. Usually if you get in with a good crew you can bang out 2 jobs a day. Good luck.

    Did sh!t just get real?!

    Yeah, you are correct. I must have overlooked that, 1500 years since the HH. Got all excited :)

    Blue Primer

    I am a huge fan of Vallejo's primers. Vallejo Game Air Ultramarine Surface Primer Paint, not sure if that is the blue you want, but you can always lighten or darken it with Vallejo's white, gray or black primers. As stated above, and imo an airbrush is an excellent tool for primer and base coating models. There are very inexpensive entry airbrushes, Master is one brand to look into.
