  1. I won't throw mud, but I gave up on Wayland Games years ago. I make my own bases from Greenstuff if you're that way inclined? Pretty simple to do but less simple than buying bases
  2. I got told that my order from my LGS in the UK would be finally resolved in April. I ordered in September and they have held it due to the printing issue since then.
  3. Thanks. Sorry about the picture quality, the WIP shots (with the keyboard in the background) I just snap at my desk in whatever light there is in the evening to show progress. I did try and take the crew shots in natural light with a white background to light them better, im not sure what else I could to to improve picture quality on my mobile phone. Cheers
  4. Slow progress with Hoffman. I've not painted metallics on so much of so many models for a while... They are pretty much ready to start adding the dark grey/red colours which I use throughout my guild models, and then I can add weathering. I've been using my incomplete Peacekeeper as a reference to this point, but I'm nearly at the stage with the rest of them that he is at so I'll be doing it all together. Might switch to do some Neverborn painting at some point soon though to avoid any more metals Cheers Lofty
  5. I've got all the models I have for Hoffman assembled I was a little worried about pulling the Hunters/Watcher up from the magnetic storage I use as they all have a small point of contact with the base and I only just manage to pin the watcher through the straight leg, so I used the pipes in a workaround which I describe in detail here. Just to add some liquid greenstuff to the Hunters and everyone is ready to be sprayed to paint I would share the progress I've made with my Neverborn, but maybe I should do that in a new thread. Cheers Lofty
  6. Yeah that seems to be the big difference is that I would pick a force for Warmahordes from my folder before I left the house to play so the majority of my cards were always at home, so it's no bother taking a handful with me. Cheers for all the feedback and tips
  7. I think I still have some of the separate binder pages like this which is what I used for Warmachine/Hordes, so they would all fit into a folder. I did a test run last night though when our friends came over for a game, and having everything in my lunchtin worked fine, plenty of space for all my factions with dividers and room for tape and tokens too. Inelegant and may get update but I'm happy for now (I think)
  8. That's a good point about the binders that I hadn't considered... Food for though definitely before I make any purchases
  9. I must say I got sick of card folders/binders from my WarmaHordes days. Boxes seem to be working for me for now, although I use Ultra-Pro just because I'm familiar with the brand from way back when no hassle to try something new. Thanks everyone
  10. Ah hah, cheers that might be exactly what I'm after
  11. So you would have a box each for stat cards and upgrades per faction (2 boxes per faction)? I was wondering about using a Starwars (I think it might be supossed to be alunchtin) tin box to just have everything in with dividers to be honest
  12. Hi all I wasn't sure where to start this thread, but how do you guys store/transport cards? I currently have a deckbox in which i'm trying to squeeze all my guild cards plus all the many and varied upgrades from both upgrade decks. Then of course I have at least one fate deck, my strats and schemes deck, and if I might not want to play guild, I have to take my Neverborn deck box too. Not only am I carrying a lot of cards about, but it seems I might even need more than one for just my guild cards :/ Does anyone have a solution I might not have thought of? Cheers
  13. Hi mate Welcome to the community Hobbying is a great catharsis for stuff that's going on around (for me at least) and I really find my zen when I'm painting. Hope it can help you relax with all the other stuff you have going on! I can't see the pictures you posted as I'm at work, but it sounds like you know where you're going with your concept, so keep it up! I am also doing a part-time 40k modelling project (that I probably wont end up playing many games with), which I will be updating on my blog and another forum if you're interested. Cheers
  14. I was so close to buying these on Black Friday but I really couldn't justify the import taxes and shipping They look great though, thanks for sharing the unboxing
  15. I've got a WIP Peacekeeper that I thought I would share (he's been at this stage for a month or so im ashamed to say) as well as the beginning of my Hoffman crew. The Peacekeeper is based on a sewer style of base, and I will carry this throughout the Guild Constructs. The idea of Hoffman working on his creations in some kind of mad engineer's laboratory, is one that I really like I also added some 'charging points' to the Peacekeeper, as he was giving me a very 'Igor' vibe, and I love the idea of him getting recharge via some mad lightning conducting thing… I like the background/character of Hoffman and his constructs and I caved in and bought with some cash I received from family at Xmas. I went ahead and made Ryle and the Guardian first, along with their bases. Just missing greenstuff topping to take flagstone details. I'll post more WIP and progress as soon as I get time to work on things a little more. I also have a Lilith crew that's taking at least some of my hobby time at the moment too Cheers Lofty
