    Not officially. People post stuff on eBay and there are a few places online that break boxes up but you can't order them from Games Workshop.

    There are sites that break up the sprues and sell them separately along with ebayers of course which is where I thought I might find them as long as I knew where they came from. However the Lord of Skulls is a £95 gw website exclusive so nobody's making much of a profit on the bits from that. I did find a couple of old posts selling them but I reckon they'll be hard to find separate. The Blood Tanks as they're called, don't seem to be optional so most people will use them when building the Lord of Skulls.

    Does anyone know where the ornate water tanks(?) in the bottom right of this picture come from? ...and again on the top of this conversion (although they don't seem to be using the hatches so may be they're separate?) I've had a look online, i thought it might be part of some scenery set but can't seem to see where they're from.

    I've eventually caught a Ditto, it's only taken me about 4 months of shitty RNG.

    I'm sure this is how I played Warhammer Fantasy in like 1991; well from what i remember. Had my first game on wednesday. Helped the owner of the independent wargaming store in his game against the Alpha Legion. We nearly got tabled and the last Lemun Russ was on 2 wounds at the end but we won on points! Really enjoyed it although i was getting a little lost as they whizzed through the dice rolls. Not that they weren't explaining it; it was just a lot to take in and i was a bit tired as well. Hoping to get back next wednesday, home plans permitting, but i'll have to try and tag along in another match cos my painting is going slow, 4 plague marines done out of 7 and the rest of the Dark Imperium boxset Death Guard to go

    Finally got 2 Death Guard done. I've ballsed loads up (need to improve my fleshy bits); they won't win any awards but I'm happy with the result after not doing any miniature painting in some 25+ years. (I've linked my tweet cos for some reason it's not letting me upload reduced size jpegs) Obviously the biggest change since I did any painting is the amount of information available, mainly on the web and the expansive set of Citadel paints now, particularly in Technical/FX paints.

    Yeah I've got the app and obviously the paint guide from the Dark Imperium box set. When I ordered my paints I think I got caught between the two and didn't have a full set to follow either :d I think I just need to find a style that suits a limited palette and some combinations of layer and shades that work. I like your Helbrute for example

    Is there a particularly decent online forum for painting/tactics/etc for 40k? Something akin (dare I say) to rllmuk as I assume official forums and Reddit can a bit of a shit show? I'm slowly but surely assembling the Death Guard from the Dark Imperium box set and have 2 Plague Marines 70% painted. I knew the models were detailed but I'm finding I don't quite have the paints to pick out all the details I'd like to. The Death Guard seem prone to lots of detail since they have fleshy appendages/teeth poking out everywhere as well as grenades, ammo, straps etc. It may in the long run, work out fine as I do find the officially painted Death Guard to be a bit "busy" for my liking, some of the form and shape gets a bit lost, the paint jobs posted in this thread do a better job imo.

    Pokemon Go

    My interest is starting to wane. Despite catching the right type, I still haven't caught a Ditto and I'm slowly trudging towards been able to evolve an evolved grass type. RNG can suck my balls.

    Yeah, I don't have the money to pay someone else and I think half the fun is painting the models yourself, even though i'm not very good.

    I broke and have ordered the Dark Imperium box and Death Guard Codex from a local independent game store. They have a 15% discount on the box too which sweetened the deal. The store owner seems a nice chap and they run gaming nights through the week, he even offered to do a run through of a game sometime to help me get going. Pick them up next Friday as they didn't have them in stock and that's the next time I can get through. Squee!

    God dammit! I chucked out all my GW stuff 10 years ago, as i'd not played them in ages, but I'm hankering to get back into 40K after having some painters in my twitter feed and watching a bunch of YouTube vids. Not that any of the stuff i chucked out would be viable today, it was at least 15+ years old then (so 25 years+ if i still had it today). I always played Nurgle so the Dark Imperium boxset is shoe in for me but i presume the world and his dog plays Death Guard? Also, 40K's on it's 8th edition, is that likely to change anytime soon? I don't trust GW not to rinse it's fan base but them models look so damn good. Hngh...

    Pokemon Go

    Bah, I need to concentrate when I read, I do need to evolve an already evolved grass type. Not sure it makes anything easier but at least I know what need to correctly do

    Stuck on a couple of things at the moment. I need to catch a Ditto for two of my professor research story(?) lines and just can't seem to get one. I've looked it up and am catching the types it imitates but it just doesn't seem to be dropping and it's all quite frustrating tbh. Particularly as I've caught at least two before i needed to, doh! Also stuck, sort of, trying to catch grass type Pokemon for one of my daily research's. I need to evolve a grass type but i don't seem to get many round my way. I get hybrid types (grass/poison) but these don't count as I've evolved a couple and its not counted them.

    Are AAA games killing themselves?

    I've never played BLOPS; can you buy the red dot with some kind of in game currency or are the coins purely bought with real money? If the coins are in game currency how long does it take to get 100 of them? I only ask because I used to play Planetside 2 and they did something very similar (for every gun) but it didn't take very long to get the 10 (or whatever) certs to unlock the red dot sight. I never felt cheated by that but that's not to say they weren't adverse to some scummy practices.
