I have a Dawn of War: Soulstorm mod with more 40k lore friendly things and it is the only major campaign focused mod.

You can search for it as "NimoStar's Darker Crusade" on MODDB or Google.

Had. A Tau army about 3k points circa 5th ed. azure blue with white paint scheme, something along the lines of this image.



Sold it off, along with some sealed kits I had, including some classic sculpt broadside battlesuits.

Ahh, so for the Greater Good? Let me guess: they have big guns

I like the faction design wise (reminds me of Heavy Gear series). And probably one of the most inherently good factions in the universe (although GW is pushing for this "indoctrination" vibe recently, I hear). Heard they are pretty weak in terms of tabletop strength as their mostly a ranged faction so they're getting ass-whooped in melee.

My favs are probably still Tyranids, I would probably invest in them if I ever wanted to get into miniatures collecting/playing seriously.

Your image does not work btw.

The trick is to get into the melee. in the few games I played, my oponents never really got close.

And yes, they do have big guns.

this has to be my favourite sculpt from the old range.
stretching the page

although their newer stuff is great too, like the Ghostkeel.

Yep Tau Battlesuits always looked badass and I also like how they incorporate Kroot for some added variety.

But I must say the 8th edition designs are looking crisp. Like these bad boys here:

Ah I ok, didn't know it was of Forge World making. This automatically raises the pricetag

Btw maybe I'm naive but paying 270 pounds for an unassembled, unpainted figure seems kinda steep (even if it comes with big scale and detail).

I mean, I remember Weta Workshop Hellgate London figures being cheaper (around 300$) and they came fully painted:

GW business practice is completely assinine, esspecially in their pricing of the plastic kits.

But then again, other gaming companies, like Warlord Games don't even come close to the market share that GW has. So they kinda utilise their near monopoly position, but sooner or later, it'll come to bite them in the ass.

and that's where recasters and other piracy crap comes in. Just a few days ago zuccbook advertised me some primaris stuff for like 5 bucks, which is some chinese half assed recast, to be bought via Aliexpress.
I really want an Imperial Knight, but bleep me, I am not paying 120+ euros they're asking for it on the online store. and the only really local hobbyshop that sells it has afaik online only store, and their real world location is more of a gaming club.

So far the only thing of value they offer is their "start collecting" sets.

I think the Indomitus box was praised for it's price-per-model ratio. Starter sets are also praised for being a good move on GW side, especially the previous starters with SM vs Death Guard set. I bought the Elite set simply because I wanted to get a "feel" of a game I'm recently so interested in. I'm still only after a first few missions but I don't think this game is for me: just too much stuff going on (but it might change if I give it more time). Remember I'm somewhat of a board gamer so this was simply an experiment for me if I'll like it or not, cus no number of videos will give you the feel of the game.

I do enjoy the assembly though (although it takes long as f*ck). Kinda reminds me of building Gunpla models, but so far without and goddamn stickers Painting is a no-go, I hate stuff that reminds me how bad I am in jobs requiring manual precision

That said, as always Kip, we are getting the short end of the stick cus "muh communist block" and because our moneyz are a poor mans currency... amerihams pay 4x less yet they still whine.

At least you have real money, not this plagiate of the USSR rouble that we got stuck with since iirc 2015.

Like Jesus Bleeping Christ euro sucks so much. back when my country had real money, having a 50 in your pocket was so cool, you could get so much stuff for it. having 50 of EU monopoly moniez is like having some spare bleeping change. and the prices are pretty much the same in numerical sense.

But in my neck of the woods, the lack of players is the problem. and also every little thing is being politicised. Like for example, one guy I knew, sadly no longer with us, posted on Zuccbook a haul of Zvezda kits he bought. and his other "friends" began a kangaroo trial on high treason, because Zvezda originally was a Russian company(now majority of it's stocks belong to some Austrian corporation), and muh russia bad.

Da hell? For a snowen plastic model of a tank?

I mean I have at least a dozen of kraut army models in my house back when my brother was into plastic war-models (and cars) and no one ever made a fuss from it.

A few of my friends would maybe play the game with me, but they have kids or something so no time for fun. And I'm too lazy to look for some happy nerd circles via forums.

Yes. And it wasn't just a tank, it was also a APC and some 35th scale modern Russian trooper figures, specifically this kit.


But you have this type of mental deficiency in Poland too.

'member that crackpot who said that HC should ban all russians due to what happened in ukraine? the one I got into a spergwar with. this tub of joy

Despite taking into the account that he's registered to a site MADE by an ethnic russian.

Well yeah, we do have this lunacy in PL, like despite Putin holding our government by the balls (there are theories there's deep involvment here, like secret agents gathering dirt on opposition, or our previous wacko minister of defence who literally destroyed our special forces and made laughing stock of our army) the hate of Russia is real. And Germany. Or anyone in that matter. And we hate our kinsmen the most Yeah we are actually such a spiteful nation. Guess it's one of those "scar of communism" things and being robbed and trampled for almost 250 years straight . Still better then kneeling before muh minorities XD

But I didn't hear of any people being put down because of their symphaty for Russian militarism. Unless your suspected of being an agent. Or a judge/policeman in PRL

But snow it, kip lets keep this s*it out of this thread, let's not mix grim dark with rl grim dark

I like my plastic toys!

hold on.

Did you just call 40k minis toys?








Besides, real world politics is more on the side of an argument in kindergarten sandbox, rather than stuff we read on 40k fluff.


That said, if I'd buy some GW product these days, it would most likely be from the AoS line, as the kits are price closer to my current hobby budget. something like a Stonehorn, one of the lizardmen beasts or the former Imperial General on Griffon

Yup, Sigmar has some cool stuff too. Muh lizzies, (almost) everything Slaves to Darkness related or even Nagash skellies have some really cool models.

EDIT: I'm kinda also getting into AoS lore in parallel to W40k. Well it's not that it's that captivating so far but there are some interesting bits and ideas. I assume the whole point of the setting is that it's this Warhammer Fantasy with a spin, takes a lot of inspiration from Nordic Mythology (separate "realms", gods-vs-monsters, "Valhalla-like-realm" where souls of warriors are getting "re-used" etc). I don't quite "feel" it yet but there is potential. So in this regards W-Fantasy is that grounded, more "mundane" (yeah counting out all the monsters that nilly-willy around ) medieval dark fantasy with European-like-kingdom superpowers and various states vying for dominance, and AoS is this "use your imagination can-tell-reality-from-myth" highly stylized setting. The lore has potential, but I think it's not that keen on being too realistic...

I think it will take a bit more time until they announce something. As far as fantasy goes, I am aware that they are currently working on yet another new faction and battletome: The Sons of Behemat which will probably consist of giants and monsters which might be cool actually as Godbeasts is one of the more interesting element of the lore for me.
