  1. i just think that by reaper doing this, they will allow for more variations in armies..


    i myself plan on playing crusaders, who i hear dont have all that good of archers anyway..lol


    however, i can see this change as allowing more variations... how many people can really and truely say they had fun facing down a force of archers?... think back to the middle ages when that stuff really did happen... a good volley from a well armed and support sqaud of archers was enough to end most advances form the enemy..


    is warlord historical?... no, obviously, and thats a good thing.


    if im able to field 18 archers well first off i will find myself over extended into missile, and the first person to get in on me will likely kill me, but lets say for instance you are going against a person whos army is specifically melee... is it a fair match?... no... not really... remember again, this is not a historically accurate game, in a real life war, who cares about being fair... but this game has rules for things like that.

  2. as for alternative jungle planets... try some of the floral arrangements at walmart or hobby lobby... they arent plastic like you'd get from a pet store


    also, try for something different from jungle all together, id love to see like CAV attacking savannah... all spanish mossy and all..lol

  3. meh..lmao


    either way, its not as horrible as you all make it out to be.



    I don't think it's horrible. I just don't want to pay more for lower quality ::):

    I'm with Jenova on this one. There are a few colors that I continue to buy because I've been using them so long, I like to maintain a unified look amongst my models (Ie.. I started doing skeletons one way, I'm going to keep doing them that way).


    I also haven't found any reds that I like as much as the GW reds - but that is just personal preference - and is also not to say I don't like any other reds.. just personal preference. I also really like the Graveyard Earth, Desert Yellow and Kommando Khaki. And I like to use scorched brown and dark flesh, with a highlight for a reddish leather color.



    But I have found for the most part that I first reach for the Reaper Master Series of Vallejo model colors - depending on what I'm painting. I've also taken to painting my Imperial Guardsmen with the Muddy Olive and the olive highlight (which in my personal opinion is a bit too extreme of a change without being really thinned out, but works beautifully for armor and hard edges)


    A good way to get people to switch is simply show someone the pricetag on a reaper bottle and a GW bottle, and then pour the GW paint into a dropper bottle. When people actually see it only fills half the bottle, and the prices are comperable - then they further understand the value. (Plus, they don't dry out as quickly in dropper bottles - and you can add a little bit of flow improver as you pour)


    To me, the best paint to use is the one you like. I started out with craft paints, and I was happy (although a lousy painter.. also noone told me to prime the figures)... as I adapt and use new techniques, I find different paints fit my need and make me happy. I won't win any demons, but thats not why I paint.. I'm a gamer first and a painter second. I want to paint quickly to get my troops on the field and occasionally take some time to really do something nice as a change of pace. Right now the Reaper Master Series suit my needs perfectly because they are arranged in a triad and I don't need to think about mixing colors or what should I use as a highlight. The foundry paints are the same way - except they are hard for me to get, and I like supporting Reaper.


    Thats just my rather lengthy $.02

    if reaper could offer those specific colors that i keep buying, in the exact tint i need, then id probably switch... but you cant really fault them i suppose

  4. so... lemme get this straight, reaper is making a rule that will make people not able to field an all archer army............




    wheres the problem?... i havent even started playing warlord yet, but just from a D&D perspective, too many archers means that someone isnt going to have a fun game.

  5. im with ya there... i just found out that my 20/0 brush was still loaded with a bit of red, and my paint cup still had water in it... the last time i painted was wednesday


    plus, i cant seem to do much more thna a few touch ups before i get bored with what im doing.


    im totally feeling the painting blahs right now

  6. I don't have any static grass right now ::(:


    but on the base I just used dirt form my friends house, glued it on and then painted it.

    cool... ive heard of people using spackle... which was what i thought it might be

  7. im enjoying my grey primer, because it allows me to see more details than black did.. now i went in knowing that i had never heard of the company (the only one i had heard of was, krylon) but i figured it only cost me like $1.50, so if it didnt work, i wasnt out that much money
