  1. Hello! I have questions, that I will be using the Imperil Colossus battlefleet as an example, as it helpfully illustrates both my questions. One; I can have one Hochmeister as a flagship. Can I then, as per the entry on the Hochmeister itself, attach him to a unit of Metzgers? I feel some of these "promoted to flagship" units need some kind of escort (though this may be overkill here)- is this an option, or does he loose this attachment as a flagship? Can he take escorts at all? Two...let's say I take that unit of Metzgers in either case. Can I add ANOTHER unit of them (as I am allowed two colossi units) AND attach a Hochmeister to the unit, or would the Hochmeister attachment count as a third, ILLEGAL unit? What I'm getting at is, are attached units counted in the restrictions, or are they just counted as an option, and ignored by the restrictions? Because points not withstanding, no idea why I'd attach a Hochmeister to a unit of Metzgers if that's the case, rather than take a full squadron of both units and keep them separate. Thanks in advance.
  2. I hope this is alright. I really wanted to get some eyes on this. My friends and I having issues planning out our fleets, and thought I'd share some thoughts. The entries in the ORBATs really need a small picture or something of what the unit looks like. A diagram, something. Now I don't expect this on unreleased units of course, but it would help identify what some of them are easier, because to even being fairly new it's confusing trying to identify them as the ORBATs are getting a bit packed now. Also, hybrid or units built from different sprues (or builds in terms of the Ottoman double-hull cruisers) are kind of hard to identify or understand from an outsider. Like the Prussian Supremacy cruiser needs to be built from parts from the support and frontline sprues. Or say, the Enlightened's new carrier frigate - is this unreleased, or are we expected to take the launch catapult from the frontline cruisers and fit it in the frigate hull for that unit? Perhaps having a designation of what sprue (frontline, support, advanced or unreleased) it's on may help? I understand it's always in progress, but maybe making it easier to understand might help a bit.
  3. I'll have to consider that posse. But hoping for hired hands level hellions sooner or later. Thanks for the reply.
  4. So, dusting off my old Enlightened...been a long time. Found the new Apex Hellions - love the idea, but there's a lot indicating regular hellions - terms like "pack leaders" and "apex" in the descriptions imply there should be a lesser variation somewhere. Am I missing something? I can't find anything outside of the Apex description, but I swear there was a regular Hellion model at some point? I can't find anything in the downloadable cards or anything. I'd love some plastic, flying constructs. They sound delightfully horrifying.
  5. Blast. At first I was going to use the heavy particle cannon ball turret, but it's too bulky. Might go with a beamer turret with the gun bored out, and a resin crystal jammed in its place...unless I can find something in my 40k bitz box, like a chaos gun barrel.
  6. Hello! Working with my Covariant fleet, and finding in the rules a weapon option - "Sturginium Agitator". Seems like the old particle cannon. Where exactly IS this part? Are there any on an upcoming kit? All I seem to have on the sprues are the beamer and the pulse options. Thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks for the advice. When I can, I will try that out and upload the results on my carrier. Should I still use the Matt medium, or would that go against the thinner? I used to have ugly drying water / "clean" spots until I used the Matt. I am so glad people like this color scheme. I was uncertain about it at first.
  8. Thanks for the feedback, all! I think using sepia may be the way to go. @WestAustralian I'm just getting the hang of washes...using secret weapon brand. Just discovered using a drop of Vallejo Matt medium to keep the wash from getting those unsightly water spots. Still haven't gotten it where I want it though. What kind of thinner should I look for? Thanks again!
  9. Hello all! Starting some Relthoza, and decided on a Halloween color scheme - black, orange, purple and neon green glow. A few test ships...what do you think? I am unsure of the shading fluid - the ships have turned out grimy, dark and in some cases a bit spotty. (Apologies in advance if the photo is blurry) What do you think? Does this work or should I use a sepia shade instead? Thanks in advance! -Failsafe!
