  1. Plus by the time the game hits the shelves, the 2nd of 3 movies will be out too. They could have had any number of opportunities to incorporate items from Last Jedi in if they wanted. Every toy maker/game maker gets NDA approved insight into the designs.
  2. cool video man
  3. No new release this month?!
  4. If nothing else than to give Imperial Assault its space and reduce the number of redundant figures. I'd rather a base set with Ray and Kylo Ren too. There would be a lot potential in the armies there.
  5. wow that looks great! MOAR ELVES!
  6. I can't wait to paint the Moose. Thats incredible.
  7. The color primer stuff is a great idea. Quick shade stuff is pretty good too. If you look at Sorastro's zombie painting guide , he covers a good approach there. Allows you to just do the base coat and get them table ready. If you're going for something more precise, just take your time, mount 3 or 4 on pots or little bottles, and enjoy painting. If you're going for speed pick out ~4 base colors and don't worry about unique colors for the details... just punch them up a little more when you get to the point where you're doing finish touches. If you're going to go light on highlights, try to add some lamium medium to the shades so they don't darken everything too much especially on lighter colors. Save the straight nuln oil or agrax earthshade for metallics or leathers.
  8. Thats a cool idea. You need to post those up! I have my first few done and I'm really excited about it. I traded the loren forest for warpstone to punch up the green some without being the eye rending color on the box
  9. thank's guys. great ideas! Warning I'm a citadel guy: I was thinking of going with: base green: Castellan Green shade: Biel Tan Green (really pops the green) 1st highlight: Loren Forest + Moot green in stages to lighten it up I'm going to go with a silver with a hint of a light blue mixed in (lunar vibe) for the metal work. I haven't picked the leather color, yet, but I'd love to mix in a little yellow or orange into the leather color to warm it up and add some punch vs. the standard leather colors that I have all over the other armies. So maybe: Base: some XV88 for the tans and Skrag Brown + a touch of Evil Suns scarlet (maybe a 4:1 mix?) for a red-brown leather, Rhinox hide for belts and straps. shade: typical mix of nuln oil and agrax earthshade Highlights: Skrag brown areas probably thinned Skrag brown then a bit of fire dragon bright to lighten it up... maybe just 1 2nd highlight there? I'd love to find some good autumn leaf flocking though... some fallen foliage on the base. Know any good stuff there?
  10. Love the yellow and orange flock.
  11. So I picked up my Latari elves and I plan to spend some time getting them glued and primed up... but I'm trying to do some research on the color palette to use. I saw the Army Painter setup here - I was trying to figure out what they're selling in that (and then I can map up the greens and browns to my citadel paints). Any one have any idea whats in the green box here? Or other good ideas for Latari Elves?
  12. Where is the mini for Jax - J4X-7?
  13. heh, yeah it takes time to get factions painted and really push the established brands for war game time. I see people bringing more and more in and discussing it while playing xwing or warhammer.
  14. Boston, MA (south suburbs)
