  1. Painted "lava" effects on the joints of Joro's feet. Felt they needed some pizzazz. And with that, the spider parts are almost done. Just a few "belly gems" to do.

  3. After 25 months, the time has come: my Diorama is finished. For a very long time I wanted to implement the DOOM cover (first game) as a diorama. And also something similar to Roman Lappat's great "Last Light" in a smaller version. When I started the diorama, I just wanted to use stuff I already had, so the Space Wolve got it against the demons. Otherwise, it has nothing to do with 40K at all. Likewise, I wanted to take it easy. That's why I only slightly modified the demons. But anyway, I have built about a dozen, and only two completely out of the sprue. Very helpful was tha

  5. It's been brought up before. She can always measure range and LoS through Obliteration minions. However, being unburied saves her wounds, but makes her more vulnerable in the long run.

  6. So things are locked in now, but just as a thought what if McM's future alt card was focused less around doing lots of Poison to the enemy and instead around being a melee summoner? So he could have Dismember on melee, and instead of Twisted Genius give him something similar but lets him summon any Experimental Undead Minion whose Sz is equal to the # of nearby Corpses he discards?

  7. I mean, at the very least the complaint about Perdita is valid. I do like where Guild has generally ended up and I think they are good, but balance for 3e did a number on Perdita. Family Values really isn't the buff she needed. I also still think it's early to have the factions rankings all worked out. That'll take some time.

  8. But it's worth noting that Judge doesn't suffer +2 damage but 2 damage, so if you are on 3 Wds and flip 2x you get 2 dmg (go to HtK) and then die.

  9. Just played a game yesterday with the transmortis crew, loved the changes to studied opponent. Didnt happen every activation but happened enough to help me kill what I needed to. 8 soulstones kept the valedictorian alive the first 2 turns against a grootslange,bad juju and the first mate, along with zoriadas obeys on those 3. She killed bad juju, and an adze. Getting me 2 summons (sinew, for the tasty obeys on my Victorian for more attacks, great model, needs stones to live though)

  10. Caedrus, reporting in! So, I managed to complete my vulture (posted earlier), and my Acolytes, as promised. They're not my best, and not my worst. The snow effect is a bit meh, but the cloaks are very pleasing indeed. So, 24SS painted this month. Remember, everyone, March is crunch time! If you've Mulliganed twice, then March is the month where you have to start! I'll return soon with an end of month update. Next month, sadly, it'll be back to red paint for me... Caedrus.

And no, most of yall who have been tossing out prices are still considerably off. Yes, eventually they will all become available as PDF books. Only the core rulebook and stat cards are being translated. Fluff and the like is not. If you're concerned about the translations, take a look at the free TOS rules/translations and go from there.

We've not announced prices as of yet, that'll come here shortly as we finish up a few things. That being said, rules, cards, etc - all released for free online. No one has to spend a dime on any of it if they don't care to. Now if you want nicer books, professionally printed stat cards that are coated, additional background, etc - you have other options available.

Seeing the excitement, camaraderie, hard work, and time everyone put into creating such spectacular pieces has made putting this year's competition together incredibly worthwhile. So, to all of those who painted, modeled, voted, and encouraged the painters: thank you! You have made this year's Iron Painter another spectacular competition!

  18. Uhm, Assuming Jack has no LoS to him, the Dead Outlaw can push him.... backwards? Jack can’t use punishment on him because he’s either in LoS and eligible for punishment but not tormented, or out of LoS for the trigger, yet Tormented. I guess Montresor could obey him.

  19. Almost forgot! The Restless Spirit is a cheaper alternative to the Gravedigger. Still brings you the corpse marker turn 1 for blasphemous ritual through Grave Spirit's Touch. Doesn't bring the Heals, but it can give shielded +1 to a Guilty you're shooting, or to whatever Jack is charging to push through Torment. So you'd be doing only 1 damage to your Guilty by shooting it with the Dead outlaw, or you could be doing 0 damage to Ligeia by charging her with Jack Daw to get the push from Punishment. So, perhaps a little less versatile than the Gravedigger (although incorporeal), but also 1 s

  20. You are correct, you'd draw 7 every turn and you get to keep up to 7 at all times (or more if you have more Guilty upgrades around). In Outcasts, The Emissary is the best versatile hire in my opinion. The Vitality potion upgrade saves Jack Daw a card, or heals your Hanged, or lets you beat up the Guilty more. The pretty floral bonnet lets you charge with a Hanged, cheat in a high tome to drop a scheme marker in base contact with the enemy, then take an interact action for the second marker, and give you detonate the charges in one activation (assuming the enemy model stays there). If you ac

  21. Speaking of the +1 hand size, so am I correct in assuming if you have a hand size of 7, you draw 7 cards at the beginning of the turn? "players with fewer cards in hand than their maximum hand size (which is 6) draw cards until they reach that number of cards". -So if it goes on the master, its pretty much like arcane reservoir for the whole game. Sorry for the newer questions, first time looking at this crew. Thanks for the advice! So no healing and slow movement, gotta abuse pushes and places where able. Are they are any solid versatile picks in either faction or just stay tormented all t

  22. Depends on the situation. I went overboard in my first two games after the change, and beat them within an inch of their lives. Then the enemy master comes and does 1 damage to them and I'm 1 model down (Although +1 Hand Size) for pretty much the rest of the game. It's better if you use that as a turn 1 set-up or last resort tactic for when you really need it. Outside of upgrades and ook models, Tormented have no healing. Let's say you really need the Hanged to be somewhere, you can attach a horrible upgrade to the Guilty or hit it for 2 dmg + staggered to place in base contact with

  24. In my games “Blood Sacrifice” has ensured at least 3 growths a game. Common early activations go something like: Friendly model without “Fly with me” (Usually tot/Lelu) moves twice. If Lelu, take 1 damage and draw 2 cards. Shaman uses fly with me, charges such model, cheats low mask for Blood Sacrifice, Resulting in a net damage of 0, healing the 1 damage taken to draw cards through blood clot, and getting a corpse marker in the process. The shaman can then walk again, use black blood postule or, if you have another low mask, get a second corpse marker for 0 damage. The importan

  25. Hello here is a quick report on my last game with Hoffman last Friday. I faced @salisterro who brought Perdita and it was his first M3E game. We were about to play the following strat and schemes when the very last update dropped. This game considered the last version of the cards. Strat: Turf war, in Flank deployment Schemes: Detonate the charges (Arcanists) Breakthrough (Arcanists) Hold up their Forces Outflank (Guild) Vendetta (Guild: Nino on a Guardian) We had the following lists.

  27. I really dislike : Exclusive Interview: When an enemy model within a2 takes the Interact Action, it is treated as a friendly model and the Action is controlled by this model. It makes Nellie immune to deliver a message (and possibly future gaining ground schemes) which I think is bad from a game design perspective (particularly for those who remember facing Hamelin in m2e with condition heavy scheme pools). I have no issue with her making the scheme difficult (Eg: When an enemy model within a2 takes the Interact Action, this model may discard a card to treat the en

  28. Most 4-5 SS minions are garbage unless they have nice defensive tech. With focus going between turns most models with stat 6 can get a severe 5-6 which just makes them go pop. Pistoleros with 3-4 Wds are like M2E Bayou Gremlins, just not summonable and with Df4 and no Squeel

  30. Let me start with the quick caveat that I have not been able to make melee Leveticus work in three editions, so good on you. So, my play style will be a little different. Levetcus can still bounce around using Waifs, but only twice. That is the biggest drawback to the change in style. I have used the wounds transfer to kill move Leveticus and heal something at the same time. I usually run a Waif up either side and move them in when I am planning to die. Most of the time I rely on Leveticus’s ranged attack to get damage off. Hard to Wound does suck as a counter, but otherwise I am usually

  32. I'm not super adept at Dita, but I'd try something like: #1 Dita + LLC (5SS) Nephilim Abuela Nino + Expert Marksman Loco + Expert Marksman (assuming I didn't fuck something up and it works ) Santiago Steward Effigy + Effigy of Fate #2 Dita (2SS) Nephilim Abuela Nino + Expert Marksman Loco + Expert Marksman Santiago Steward Judge I generally think most 4-5 SS minions are shit and will rarely be taken (unless they have HtW/Armor/etc)

  36. Hi guys, I haven't been very vocal this month as beta testing and organizing an escalation league to bring new players has eaten up most of my time. (And being in constant pain has eaten much of my mental energy.) This has also made me change my pledge to Ikiryo and an Onryo (as that's what I've been painting for the league). They're not done but I think I'll manage before the end of the month. I apologize for not offering up any opinions or specific praise at this moment but I just don't have the mental fortitude at the moment. I'm really impressed with everyone's progress though, i

  37. In all my battles using Youko i found them pretty nice. True - the Youko had biggest impact most from her front card rather than back part with reducing opponent's hand size, providing with Charm Warder quite nice card draw (i have luck for getting high crows for starting hand), and Informants are great (even if Serene Countenance wasn't always enought to protect her from being close to the enemy models). I have to agree that the rest of her action was pretty the same every turn and every game - sometimes trying to discard cards from enemy hand (if i have high mask card), but usually tryi

  38. @misterfinn Thanks for the kind words. I'll try to get a better picture of Mouse. I wasn't particularly proud of the paint job to be honest but I'll do it. Maybe there is a reason the picture is a bit out of focus For Ryle base, it is a simple recipe. I first painted the base in a dark green (GW Caliban green in particular). Then I pasted some tufts and sand here and there. Then I used @Viruk's mixture of GW Nurgle's Rot and Vallejo Still water. I may have put two or three coats (you have to wait each coat to dry before applying the next one, i.e. it is a simple recipe but it is not qui

  40. My Silurid is done for 7 SS in March. I may come back and gloss coat it later to give a more slimy feel, not sure. That is the same model, but it has a really different feel from this angle. In other painting news, I just this week I discovered necron compound---I wish I had known about this stuff before. My House Escher and Brotherhood of Steel models are really forging ahead quickly now.

I would love to see Mei maybe get a new or just alternate sculpt since hers is very much flat if you dont look at her from the front but its probably not nearly as urgent as stuff like the inevitable frankenstein, stitched up and mutated Mortimer piloted by the soul of Nicodem (lets be honest well all know that soul stone is not just being used for fuel) or maybe give lady justice one since her current one is super tiny and her hair looks more like

  49. Yeah, M3E seems very confused about what role hounds should have. They have a bunch of abilities that are about going into combat and disrupting the opponent (Hunting Partner, Annoying). But they typically die in one hit, and spending 3 SS to remove 1 enemy action is not a great deal. They are functional as fast but squishy scheme runners - but again, it just feels bad that half their abilities are useless: Pack Tactics: About staying together and attacking things, not something they are good at, and usually means they all die to a blast attack.
