  1. I can confirm this should indeed work - but let me know if it doesn’t and I’ll hit the software with a small, precisely tuned mallet
  2. The true zen of hobby... who cares who else likes him or not if you do

    Random Models for sale, UK based

    Engineers are gone folks, but I’ll potentially have a few more random single models up at some point over Christmas
  4. I believe rumour is that several retailers had said they didn’t want to stock the model as it wasn’t family friendly, unlike the rest of the range. I don’t know how accurate that is, though. I’ve not seen much official beyond “some people told us it didn’t fit the range”, though I of course don’t see everything that goes on on social media. Personally, I didn’t like the original and I don’t like the new one, so I lose nothing - fat/vomiting nurgle type models don’t interest me. However, the change seems to have caused a lot of anger amongst those who did like her. I definitely agree the minions look less developed, but I assume they’re WIP as the current level of detail wouldn’t match the range either. Who knows.

    Combining shipping on backlogged orders

    Honestly, your best bet is to wait for a reply to your email - they’ll be able to tell you what can be done. I only really have any power over the forum Black Friday always leaves a big lag in response times though, because of the sheer volume of orders. Having worked in that kind of environment before, it’s probably not as simple as you’d think to pick out multiple orders to combine. But that’s not to say it can’t be done, SFG may be able to sort something (no guarantees though, it depends on how stuff goes through their system as to whether it’s practical and efficient).

    Good models vs each team

    Against brewers I used to use bonesaw, hemlocke, dirge, silence and ghast, led by scalpel. I don’t think scalpel is a great choice though, I’d suggest obulus instead (I just haven’t painted him yet), but that’s from s3 so new scalpel may be more potent in this matchup. Between silence and hemlocke you can slow down and mess up a lot of stuff, ghast (or casket) helps with bogging down whatever reaches you, dirge is good at shuttling the ball about, and bonesaw is just good fun. Obulus will give you single target control and ball retrieval, scalpel provides multi-model positioning. The other option would be vet graves, because of his ability to go retrieve the ball, but I don’t actually have any experience with new vGraves so I can’t really say much there. First rule of facing them, I found, was do *not* engage. Do enough to get momentum and run away a lot

    When Do We Get an Order Forum?

    Surprise! Honestly, I didn't realise there was an image dropped in here for a while. But I've now had time to set you up a little section of your own

    Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten. I just have a very busy week or two. It will happen when I have enough time to go poking in the control panel rather than quickly checking the forum on my phone
  9. 2050? You want me to rush them?
  10. Thanks man And of course, I did it the traditional way - 1am the night before, cursing myself and the varnish layers for taking too long to dry. (Side note, PlayStation exhaust fans provide just the right amount of heat to dry things quickly without causing tidelines or other problems )
  11. Hilariously, I totally forgot to take it to Steamcon - lucky it wasn't that cold really! I've finally done some more painting. Or basing, at least. Finished up Ox with a simple but (I like to think) effective base. I like to keep gaming bases under control, so they don't get in the way when they're on the table: Hard to see at the moment, but I've set it up so he's standing on part of a wood and dirt version of the butchers logo. I've got it all rigged up in my 3d printer so every member of the guild will be standing on part of it, and they'll all line up to make the whole logo

    We actually discussed this a while ago, and didn’t put one in while the play test was in full swing because it made it easier for people to accidentally post things in the wrong place. But at this stage it’s probably safe, so I’ll try and get time for that this week

    Gaffer becomes a Spook!

    It doesn’t come up much in the fluff, but Obulus makes the best cherry choc chip cookies in the free cities. He was even a finalist on the Great Figish Bake Off. Who wouldn’t be tempted...

    Suggestion for next year's Draft

    Which in fairness was through no fault of the morticians players, we had the choice taken off us too last year
