  1. That's ridiculous on something that small! Those are some cool minis, what are they from?

    That's insane . Got an email back confirming cancellation, finally.

    I've tried phoning them to cancel a dozen times and all I get is recorded speech simulating a conversation. Emailed them twice but no reply. How do you get in touch with this company to cancel?

    What are you playing?

    Specter Ops Played this for the first time last night. We had 4 players (first time for all). Great fun, it's like a Metal Gear sneaking section turned into a board game. 1 player is an agent who enters the enemy base from a known starting point and has to take 3 of 4 objectives placed round the map. 2-4 players play hunters (if there are 4 hunters then 1 will be a traitor) who are trying to hunt down and kill the agent or prevent him/her from completing the objectives within the time limit. Each agent and hunter has unique powers and the agent also gets a hand of equipment cards, the effects of which may or may not become known to the hunter after use. If the agent moves through a hunter's line of sight he is "spotted" or "seen" depending on whether he ends the turn in LoS. If "seen", then the hunters will have the opportunity to attack. I played a hunter (the Gun - sharpshooter with overwatch ability) and the agent was revealed to be Cobra (ninja - stuns hunters in melee range) on the 3rd or 4th turn. Although the entry point is known, the board is big and it's difficult to cover all avenues. We got an early spot using the motion detector and the Beast's Enhanced Senses ability. The agent made excellent use of his cards to repeatedly send us the wrong way. At one point we were convinced we would have him dead to rights after a smoke bomb was due to clear next turn, when it lifted he was nowhere to be seen and we had to make a mad scramble to try to cover the exits. Myself and a second hunter were miles out of position and the Beast's melee abilities were countered by the Cobra agent's own, allowing him to make an easy escape. We really enjoyed this. It plays a lot quicker than Fury of Dracula and there was a high level of tension throughout. You always feel right on the agent's heels and the creative plays our agent was able to make with his cards was impressive. Can't wait to have a go as the agent. Had fun painting the minis too!

    I dropped a space marine head snapping the back off a push-fit mini. It's gone. Vanished into the ether. I'm in a tiny room and I've looked everywhere. I'm leaving the headless boyo on my desk as a reminder of my failure.
  6. The Citadel brush that comes with the magazine is crap, I'd relegate it to rough jobs. The Army Painter brush I got with a starter paint set is decent. W&N series 7 are great (would also recommend a size 2), most good art supply shops will have 'em. Rosemary & Co series 33 are also well regarded, though I haven't tried them. They're cheaper than W&N (I haven't seen them in shops though so maybe factor in delivery cost).
  7. Looks great @The Bag, whatever you've done on the skin is brilliant.

    On that topic, anyone got any tips for painting hair that isn't sculpted? The guy that comes with Conquest has mostly flat hair and I've a few similar models that I've struggled with the same problem.
  11. I use Winsor & Newton Galeria matt varnish. Very happy with it and available in any art supplies shop. Brush on doesn't take long to apply as you're just throwing it on, I wouldn't say it's much slower than spray varnish once you factor in warming the can, shaking etc. unless you're doing multiple models at a time.
  12. Are those the new starts?
