Code Monkey Rob rambles a bit.
As I’m getting so much closer to having the league functionality pretty much working right (including a management panel for those who’re using ITS to run their events) I’ve been thinking about the kind of things I want to put in place to benefit the true heroes of the hobby: the local game store. So here’s my stream of consciousness ramble on the topic: I’ve got some pretty slick ideas, actually. The first is for the Local Game Store (LGS) folks can use their ITS accounts to “claim” a battle field and add some additional information like store hours, links to their websites, and stuff like...
As many of us know the Avatar rules wise is one of the best Warjacks in the game. However, most would agree that its model is most certainly not. It's short, stumpy, and has a butter knife for a sword. There are plenty of conversions of this model on the internet of varying different levels. Here's the beginnings of my efforts. The idea is to extend all the limbs while reposing them to a more dynamic pose. The torso will be receiving an extension as well and lastly the sword will be getting some work done on it as well. Hopefully when it's all finished the model can better represent how...
Okay. I love the new(ish) GW technical paints. I'm trying to up my game in the painting arena which means learning how to weather my models. I'm pleased to announce that Typhus Corruption works brilliantly to weather tank tracks and sundry nearby spots. The picture attached to this blog is a quick photo of the results. Neat, eh?
I have to say that I'm a bit sad about the fact that with the release of the Imperial Knights Codex I won't be able to add a Chaos Knight to my World Eaters Army. So sad. The worst bit is that there's even fluff for it in the book. Ah well. Impetus to finally get my traitor guard off the ground?
Well, this weekend I'm planning on getting my final Great Lakes Warhammer League game in with my Daemons of Chaos, but that's not what this is about. I've been looking at Blood Knights lately and the concept of a cavalry focused Vampire Counts list. Unfortjnately I don't have alot of cavalry so that will have to wait, but I'm dying to give Blood Knights a shot. Blood Knights have an extremely impressive stat line. WS5 S5 T4 I5 with a 2+ Armor save, armed with Lances and of course on Nightmares. The main issue I'm seeing with them is also their greatest weakness: being Vampiric. While being...
Greetings, Warmongers! It’s been a bitsy since the last ITS development update so I figured I’d ramble a bit about what’s been going on. A brief glance at the site will pretty much sum it up: the new layout/theme/whathaveyou is more or less fully implemented. I think it looks pretty good. Still needs some tweaking here and there and some of the displays are still in the old style but overall it’s pretty much working fabulously. The main reason I went this route is to support mobile devices a bit better. And boy howdy! It’s night and day! If you haven’t yet, take a gander at the site on your...
While working on my Vampire Counts, I'm re-thinking each of the units I feel like using in my Vampire Counts. Today, it's the contemplation of the Corpse Cart. Starting with basic stats, the Corpse Cart is a M4 T4 chariot with very few low WS, Low initiative, S3 attacks and S4 impact hits. Here is the first HUGE flaw. It's. Freaking. Movement 4. That's 4 inches per turn and it cannot march due to being a chariot. This automatically makes casting Vanhel's Danse Macabre on it a priority so it can be useful for its ASF bubble, which robs another unit of a free 8" move and rerolls to hit. And as...
