The SunShark dilema

By TheGravemind

So I've been looking over the new Tau models on the GW website since they have been put up on pre-order. Mostly looking at sprues and 360 views coming up with conversion ideas and magnetizing options. Looking at the new flier, I noticed something, and I fear if it is true. It looks like the ion rifles the interceptor drones have, and the ion rifles on the quad gun might be the same bit. This would really make it hard to magnetize and make so either model could be used from one set.

Another thing I noticed was the end piece to the bomber's bomb generator seems to have multiple options. This could mean an upgrade or some form of options for the type of bombs? I guess we'll have to wait a week to find out. I can't wait till the bitz sites get these suckers up, because while I don't like the new suits, I'm loving the weaponry and drones!

Custom slaanesh soulgrinder

By knowsaj

Still have a lot of greenstuff work to do but the basic idea is there. I just wanted a more slaanesh looking soulgrinder and she/it will match my fiends. Ill post more pictures when I finish it and start painting.

BattleFoam review, Tyranid trays

By TheGravemind

So back a little bit before christmas, I got myself some battlefoam for my tyranids. I had be reluctant because I wasn't sure how everything would fit, and I had to get the 1520 XL to carry my tourney list. But tyranids being all spindly and large as they are, I knew I needed to make the investment. So I'm going to do a quick run down of the foam that is build for tyranids. Being able to actually see models in the foam would have helped me make my decision a lost faster.

Pictures from the Indy Open

By TheGravemind
Ok, So I finally got around to getting the pictures off of my camera. I apologize for the lack of quality, I quickly took each of these as I was going round the tables. So many good looking armies, I know I missed some. If you know who's is who's, then please call them out.

Soulgrinder progress

By knowsaj
So with the new demon book I needed to change my slaanesh list. One of those changes is adding Soulgrinders to the list. Also since I've been having so much fun playing the new daemons book( probably because it reminds me of how to nids should play) I have started branching out to other chaos gods other then just slaanesh. So here's my nurgle and slaanesh soulgrinder so far

Thoughts about the Indy Open

 By GravyGhost

 Now that the Indy Open has come and gone. I would like to share some of my thoughts about my about this GT. This was a 64 man tournament ran with Adepticon like missions. It seemed like it had a great turn out, I'm not sure what the final number was. However, I'm sure they will be releasing the results here soon and you can see for yourself. I know that we had lots of people from out of town. Hulksmash from They Shall Know Fear and Niel G. from the 11th Company were some notable out of towners.
