New Necrons coming out Nov 5th!!!! I’m ready to start a new army, now if only I had money
Why I refuse to play with two of the guys at my local hobby shop: they obviously haven’t learned these lessons I’ll write down for you guys.
If you expect those you play against to follow all the rules to a T, then so should you, to do that you should probably learn the rules instead of spewing out random bullshit.
If you have trouble standing for the length of a game, sit down that’s fine, BUT DON’T LEAN ON THE FLIMSY TABLE HOLDING ALL OF OUR MODELS!
If you do accidentally knock someone’s model over, for any reason, you should probably apologize, instead of making excuses such as “well his base needs to be bigger, it wasn’t well made”
If you lean on the table and it results in knocking a model of the table, you should probably not lean on it again.
If you want to play with people, you probably shouldn’t make them hate you. people don’t want to play with a sore loser, or a bad winner.
DON’T BE A PRETENTIOUS DOUCHEBAG!

So do you guys have any more lessons every wargamer should know?
This is for roguetrooperad, he asked me about how I painted the bases for dreadfleet.
paint all the water in the box together, all the bases, parts of the islands, all of it. it will save you tons of time and effort, so don’t even take them off the sprue, then you’ll have all the bases right in front of you.
I start with a white spray to base them. I then used P3 paint Cygnar Blue (GW equivalent enchanted blue) to cover the whole base. After that i drybrushed from Ice Blue to Skull white to get the tips of the waves breaking. I then added two washes applied randomly over everything to match the color of the game mat. I used P3 Blue ink and Turquise ink, not sure if GW has inks that color, but you could take normal GW color and mix with lots of water for the same effect.
