    New to the hobby

    Hello! From what I’ve read this is a group located in the Portland OR area? I’m a nurse who started working here and my wife and I just moved into town. Right before I moved I got my first box of figures and now I’m working on my first army of the emperors favorite:custodes. I look forward to meeting you all and hopefully build friendships around the hobby as I’ve been really enjoying it so far.

  5. Did this guy up as a tester and am really happy so far. Shooting for something a little different, all my Ork conversions are blocky and sharp so I wanted to aim for rounded and cute. Plan is for the most obnoxiously loud paint scheme I can do. He's a Dread with double heavy bolters right now (magnetized), one leg and one crutch with an oversized, bolt-on mustache. Broken down to paint on components. Opinions so far? Shooting for whimsical and campy.

  6. It’s called the “Pile of Shame” for a reason. I kind of figure my afterlife will be spent, like Sisyphus, ever toiling away at a task that will never be finished... with the Erinyes swooping in every so often to spill my paint pots and ruin the points of my brushes.

  11. So I just got into the hobby and got a couple boxes of figures. Im officially invested in custodes and im looking for some advice. What are some things you wish you had known prior to building your first set? Also are people meeting for actual games as of late or is it still pretty spaced out? Just curious as I got into the hobby because the tabletop game is super neat to me. I have a box of custodes guard, a set of allarus terminators and im building a box of vertus preators. Plus a friend of mine gifted me Trajan Valoris so I expanded pretty quickly.

  12. My two cents of advice for a beginner: it's important that you keep in mind that 40k is a game and also a hobby, and there are many many people involved in the game/hobby for many different reasons. Some people primarily love to paint miniatures, some collect, some play, some play super competitively, some mostly love the science-fiction story behind the universe, and all of us have some combination of these interests and more but people's motivations differ. So as you get involved with playing and painting and the community-at-large, at some point you are bound to find yourself in a game

  18. Larry Elmore is a dimension-hopping wizard. He paints portraits of heroes in those dimensions, sells the originals to the adventurers, and brings copies back to our dimension to sell to TSR, Bantam Books, etc.

  19. I finished assembling my Muslim themed baggage and objective markers. All that's left to do is to add texture to the bases, primer, and paint. As I posted earlier, these baggage and objective markers are designed to be use in conjunction with one another for the Ambush scenario, or independently of one another. The first baggage marker depicts a procession of drummers. The drums on the camel will be gold plated ceremonial drums with sacred significance to the Almoravid. The objective marker depicts one of the sacred drums and a dead drummer. The casualty model used for this

  20. Welcome to the RUMBLE! Hey folks! a quick update from the Rosenstadt Rumble now that day one is complete. As a TO who is playing in the event, it's too difficult and time consuming to update Ordo and Facebook, so I thought I'd take a quick moment now to do so. After two games, here are the standings (W/D/L): Underspire Filth @jollyork - Underworld Denizens, 1-1-0 62 tournament points Karak Varn Slayers @kb10r - Dwarfs 1-1-0 53 tournament points Karaz-a City Chiefs @Weav - Dwarfs, 1-1-0 48 tournament points Dirty Miners @Eric Paulsen - Chaos Dwarfs, 0-2-0 29 t

  27. So a while back I noted the "who's online" tab and noticed it's like 5 members and 30 guests usually. When you click the tab it shows what everyone is doing. Most guests are on main page but a portion are in random threads, like stuff from 2015. Not even stuff like an epic arm build, random stuff like a throwaway question/answer thread. Are these bots? Real people? Cats on keyboards? Like I said, dumb question but this stuff keeps me up at night.

    Probably spambots, ad bots, and search engine spiders.

  29. I have never built or played as custodes, but what do I wish I knew before starting/building in general? 1) Magnets can be very nice and pretty easy for larger kits like vehicles/dreads and some characters. Less so for general infantry although custodes are elite enough that maybe the effort is worthwhile. But dont be afraid of them just ask for advice/watch videos. 2) GW flight stems of most types kind of suck and will likely break sooner or later. Third party, homemade, or just carry around glue and cry a little sometimes. Oh standard super glue can fog those same stems as well

  30. Sure, though Im so new that I need a bit of help. Im reading the rule book and I have a pdf of my codex but I get the feeling some of this won't be concrete in my head until I actually play.

  33. The good news here is that you picked Adeptus Custodes, so you don’t need to invest much money in order to build a full army. A generic Shield-Captain, five Custodian Guard, five Allarus Terminators, and three Dawneagle Jetbikes will form a legal 1,000 Point army, give or take. Easy transport, lower(ish) cost, and looking really cool are the main reasons I collect Custodes myself. The kinda bad news is that Custodes can be a very tricky army to play. You’ll be outnumbered at least three to one by Primaries Space Marines and they’re generally considered an “elite” army. Space Orks and

  34. I’d find a way to play before investing too deeply - I know some game nights at stores and ORDO are going on. I’ve been playing in my garage (masked and distanced) for months. ypu need to play - at least with what you have or proxies. Get to know the rules. Do t worry about paint just yet. getting your head around rules - sequence and all that will help. The table top model and terrain are all alluring... but don’t let them distract

  36. The dust has settle on the RUMBLE! after two more games today, the field was cleared and @jollyork's Underworld Denizens team Underspire Filth was crowed the Rosenstadt Rumble champion! @jollyorkseems to have cracked the code on the unholy Skaven/Goblin alliance team, as he also recently won his most recent league with Underworld. Jolly went 2-1-1(W/D/L) and accumulated a ridiculous amount of extra tournament points along the way. Coming in second was @Keith Amberg's Dark Elf team, Self-Decriptive Delfs who actually defeated the Filth in the final game, but couldn't over come the gulf in tourn

    Some cool “retro” sci-fi figures, should be great for Stargrave, Traveller, and whatever else where you need sci-fi spacemen but don’t want them too grimdark or cyberpunk.

  47. Just got my copy of the rulebook delivered today (free two-day delivery and a special sale price now on Amazon!) and have given it a quick skim... I really, really, really like what I’m seeing. I think this game will be a lot of fun for “one offs,” but much like Gaslands or Frostgrave it will really shine when played as a campaign... I gotta buy some spaceships soon.
