    Fuck off Man City.

    I'm not sure they'd sack him, would they? Why would they? Apart from "because football" I suppose.

    Ah, that's very interesting! It tallys with my (and I daresay all of our) experience with white paints. I've tried all sorts of white paints, even expensive artist's acrylics, but it's always a pain. I do tend to use off-whites more often than not. Fascinating to have a scientific explanation as to why that happens - I thought it was something I was doing wrong. Incidentally, if anyone is interested, hands down the best white paint I've found is Vallejo Game Colour's Dead White.

    Is it? Thinking about it, it's the Army Painter white spray that's gritty. I have used Corax White spray and can't remember what the texture is. It is sort of grey though, so it might be just as good.

    I reckon it won't. Going by what I've heard the special primer is unusually smooth. I find that white primer often has a gritty texture.

    Over the years I've learnt a couple of things about people who attempt to define what "proper fans" are - 1) Their arbitrary definition always coincidentally includes themselves, and if possible excludes as many other people as possible. 2) They are complete bellends.

    Yeah, that is true. I'll wait and see what the different applications might be. I should have said I'm not really interested in using them in the way they're intended! That's just me though - I only paint and don't actually play the games, so there's not a lot of point in me getting armies to tabletop standard if the armies never see the tabletop.

    I'll reserve judgement until I try them, but i don't think they are for me, really. They look like they are going to leave tidemarks, and seem to be mainly designed for people who don't like to paint but have to for tournaments or whatever. As a side note, they might have a huge effect on the commission painting market. There's a whole low level to that "industry" built around people not being bothered to put the time in but at the same time not being willing or able to pay for the top-tier pro painters. It's unlikely to affect @Cocky, but the guy down your FLGS who charges £3 a model for a basic crappy job will be out of business! Im not really interested in them. Fully painted models by just splashing on coloured dip paints? Where's the fun in that?

    As things stand, i guess I'll be walking into the sea at about ten to five.

    Looks like a midfield diamond and two up front again. I hate that formation.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Because they're English and there are quotas of English players you have to meet. It's why Man City bought Rodwell, if you remember. Smalling has had decent seasons for us in the past, he's a reasonable backup. You guys are weirdly angry about Pogba, but he's been our best player this season. He's got the most goals, the most assists, the most passes, and the most shots. You've bought into the media narrative that Pogba is the only player that matters at United, so if United have been terrible it must be because Pogba has been terrible. He is not the cause of our problems. The main areas to address are the awful defence (Shaw and Lindelof are the only ones really good enough to be Man Utd first teamers, and both just barely) the inconsistent forwards - Lukaku, Martial, Rashford, and Lingard are all players who look great sometimes, the lack of control in the midfield - Matic isn't up to it anymore, Fred never was, Herrera and McTominay have been okay but are grafters rather than the calm head we need to break up attacks and start our own. We need about eight or nine players, including a world class striker, centre back, and defensive midfielder. Those are in short supply, frankly. If we can get £150m+ for Pogba I'd be tempted, as his attitude seems questionable at times (although what do we really know about his genuine personality - there's so much written about him it all starts to contradict each other. Too much noise, very little signal) but I wouldn't be looking to sell him.

    To make everyone jealous, here is what I got from the bring and buy - Scibor Lion Knight (a largish resin Fake Marine Dark Angels HQ) 5 Deathwing Knights new on sprue in the box Gaunt Summoner new in the pack Tyranid Broodlord new on sprue And a big box of random Dark Angels stuff for £15 which consisted of - 5 more Deathwing Knights new on sprue in the box, just with the shoulderpads missing, I've already ordered the missing parts off ebay for £3 An Assault Squad A Veterans Squad A Terminator Squad A bunch of the Dark Vengeance tactical marines. All that was just over £50. I got a cool Lego Technic helicopter brand new and unopened for my son as well, for £8.
