    Webstore is open for Gencon

    I for one am absolutely appauled at the shipping prices, last year me and some friends pooled our order and got our stuff for about $15-20. This year our shipping order would cost us $77 and that is just unacceptable it is nearly doubling the cost of our order. I would be better suited ebaying this off someone else and give them my money instead.
  2. Howdy folks, Here is the first part of my Ashes and Dust model, whilst I still am not a fan of the model this was fun to paint.

    Leveticus Tactica: Burnt Offerings

    Also in regards to Ashes and Dust, against a crew say like Lilith who would benefit from killing enforcers to buff nephilim, is it worth taking or dropping for something else entirely?

    Leveticus Tactica: Burnt Offerings

    Oh good I'm glad I was at least doing that bit right (was going to use Alyce to try and give him reactivate before realizing that would do absolutely nothing except put him to 1 wound)

    I did read it right that because he is immune to conditions he couldnt be slowed or poisoned or anything like that correct?

    Leveticus Tactica: Burnt Offerings

    First time playing with Ashes and Dust in 2nd ed (yes I realize I am somewhat late to the party here) good lord is that thing nasty! Playing against McMourning he killed Sebastion, Rogue Necromany, took a bunch of wounds off McMourning himself and then gained me a bunch of VPs through breakthrough
  7. Hello, A random thought popping into my head when playing a game earlier this week with my Levi crew. You know how he keeps dying and coming back through his waifs, has anyone stopped to think about in terms of visually what happens with that process? I mean how does his corpse turn into a waif and how a waif turns into him? I was just seeing if people had thought about this and what their theories about what takes place. I am not sure myself about what I think happens, my brain usually turns to gory horror film based things but I don't think bursting out of skin really fits...

    Plus with a reasonable walk and incorporeal he can float around to get objectives and place markers if need be. It was definitely better having the 3 anchors though (doxy,hanged,alyce)

    I tried using the Hanged and Dead Doxie tonight and they both performed rather well. Hanged helped out tear apart Seamus and his zombie hoes with terrify being incredibly useful. Dead doxie was useful for moving my own stuff about alongside a rotten belle to manipulate the board position.

    Leveticus Tactica: Burnt Offerings

    I agree with what is written there, he can't trigger an event to happen when he dies as he does not die. It makes the difference between dying and "reduced to 0 wounds"

    It was pretty good, amazingly tactical game. With the belles being able to manipulate the board it meant being more defensive with valedictorian allowing a more stable anchor. Alyce got mobbed after she killed a rogue necromancy in one activation but she hung in for a surprisingly long time. Though with only the two anchors it was quite hairy at times but with both being durable it was ok.

    This evening I played a game with the undead side of pariah. It was a 35ss game and I took: Levi Pariah of Bone Desolate Soul Rusty Alyce Valedictorian 2 Rotten Belles I was against McMourning and it was a ridiculously close and great fun game. Rotten Belles were great for both pushing their stuff towards levi or pushing levi towards the belles and getting him into range. Valedictorian was good for objective running and can take a pounding.

    Undercoat - Do you go black, white or grey?

    I usually prime stuff in grey, unless I am particularly wanting something with black recesses in which case I paint them black.

    Thank you for the detailed critiqued. Levi: I did the eyes as they are to represent his manifestation into avatar. Yeah the mold line was horrible I did what I could but it was unfortunately a nasty join on that leg. Mechanical Rider: I haven't had much experience with object lighting and I will be testing it out on some less important models. Hooded Rider: I am unsure as to your comment about the barding is what you said a compliment or a critique perhaps you could elaborate for me. As to the muscle yes you are right, I was being overly cautious with the model I didn't want to try out too many things with it. Guild Rider: You are right about it needing something in the head area, and I appreciate the compliment about the bone I have painted undead and skeletons for many years. Dead Rider: I was always worried about going too far with this one, it was the model I tried the most things with. Again the head needs some variation to it. Bases: Thanks to all for the kind words of the bases, it is a rather simple process really. Base is a thick coat of Agrellan Earth from the GW technical paints with a drybrush of Vallejo Iraqui Sand. The rocks are Cork from model railway terrain with a basecoat of Vallejo German pale brown with a drybrush of Vallejo Ivory.
