Poll Change

Just a quick post about the blog layout. With the recent changes from Daemon Hunters to Grey Knights from GW for the official codex name, I decided it was time to change around the titles for the poll to the left. Unfortunately this means I have to start over as you can't edit polls once they've been voted on. This time around however I've included a fandex option at the bottom for those out there who play fanmade material. If you're curious what the ending result was on the last poll, look to the image above.

A lot of posts incoming, so stay tuned.

Conversion: Servitors and Techmarine

Just a quick show-off of some quick work I did last week and just haven't had the time to post up. This conversion is for my unit of Servitors as well as a Techmarine. In the AdMech fandex I have each Servitor equipped with a lasgun as well as allowing certain upgrades from the lasgun. In the same respect, the Techmarines-in-training with the AdMech do not have bolters and instead have lasguns. Unfortunately GW and I don't see eye-to-eye on what the Servitors and Techmarines deserve, so a conversion was in order. More after the break.

I'm still in the process of moving. It's taking a while seeing as I decided to keep everything I've collected since the age of...well, five. This time however, I'm putting a stop to this as I seem to move every year or less because of one thing or another. This means filtering through every single box and throwing away what I don't need. Fortunately for me, this process caused me to stumble upon all of the Gundam, Zoid and Zerg models I had as a child. This is quite the jackpot here and I know there's more than just this. Bits galore has been bestowed upon me, which should help in my future conversions. It just goes to show you, that organization and purging of unneeded things has more benefits than just having less to move next time around.

Big things on the horizon, stay tuned.

Shout Out: Spirestone Wastes

While I'm in the process of moving to a new location and that's leaving me with little time for anything else, I thought I'd at least get a quick word out on a lesser-known blog out there that deserves some recognition. Today my shout out goes to Oniakki of Spirestone Wastes who has some very unique conversion work that blows me out of the water. The above image is of an Obliterator that...well, my pants fit better after seeing this picture. More of Oniakki's work after the break.

Short Leave of Absence

Tuesday morning my best friend, roommate and more or less my father-figure and hero passed away. I'm currently at a loss of words and a loss of sobriety (thank you spell check,) so I'm not sure how to go about all the mushy stuff. What I will leave you all with is a notice, that while I'm dealing with my loss all the while finding a new place to live I'll be absent from the 40k world for a tad. I don't expect to be gone very long, but when life throws things at you, you have to take it all head-on.

For those of you that are enjoying my articles on MWC; Part 2 of my casting tutorial for us new-guys/gals is still scheduled to post this morning promptly at 7:00am CST.

I hope you all have a wonder day, and be sure to tell those close to you how important they are in your life. You always think a person will be there forever, unfortunately this is not the case and never will be. Cherish every moment.

Praetorians Complete!

After purchasing my first models for the AdMech in the mail a little over two weeks ago, I was very eager to get some of them finished ASAP. While the construction and conversions were quite simple, if the painting had been left up to me, you would be seeing this post months from now. Thankfully, my buddy Mr. Lemon offered to paint my first Praetorian troop for my birthday. Needless to say, I shoved all my paints, brushes and Praetorians at him and ran away quickly. A week later I got them back, beautifully painted. Mr. Lemon is  very quick and very talented with painting. After adding the basing and some Quickshade, they are complete. More pics after the break.

Shout Out: Heroes of Armageddon Project

Busy busy busy! For those of you who didn't know, live under a rock or you're that one last person who doesn't follow MWC; last week I was chosen by Matt (the guy running the show,) to be one of his new writers. What does this mean for The Magnet Pro? Hopefully it means pushing out twice as many posts as before, only time will tell. As for right now, Matt at MWC has gathered a small team of writers with all manner of strengths in the tabletop world and I'm very excited for the readers to see some of the ideas we have going. But enough about me, let's transition to another group of writers that are about to be very busy.

The old Storm Wardens crew is back at it, and in a big way. Dave Taylor Miniatures revealed today that they will be creating a similar project for Doctors Without Borders, only this time the scale of things will be epic. Instead of one army, this time around there will be four teams working on four, count them--four, 3,000 point armies all based off of the Third War of Armageddon. Donation placements are already set up and ready for the raffle to win one of these armies (I assume they won't all be going to one person.) Just like last time, I would expect to see many prizes involved for runner-ups as well. Keep an eye on this project's epicness and get those donations in for your chance to win!

EDIT: The central blog for this project can be found here and also in my blog roll to the right.

Rules: Walking Transport

I Like To Think My Walking Transports Are A Little Less Lame Than This

There has been some questions that have come up, in my games and for you playtesters out there, as to the specifics on how the Walking Transport Special Rule in the AdMech FanDex functions. Fear not! I'm here to spell it all out for you with specific scenarios and explanations. First, the actual rule states, "Any model with the Walking Transport Special Rule uses the same movement and shooting rules for walkers (see pages 72-73 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.) This also applies to any passengers firing weapons from the transport. All other normal vehicle rules apply."

Thanks goes to Tabletop Fix (easily my favorite blog to find new minis) for this heads-up. Ever since I saw the first teaser pictures of this model, I've kept my watchful eye on it in hopes that it would be completed sometime before I perish. Luckily, Kromlech has finally released this model for sale on their eBay store! Now you may be asking, what use would I have for this model? Is this possibly a sneak peek into the future of the Adeptus Mechanicus' fandex? The answer is; banana.

So many things to come! Stay tuned.
