Huuu nice ! I'm really intrested in that bat rep against Blood Angels, that's my next opposent sooooo... any intresting bit of info is good.

I use photo bucket it's an efficient way for pick posting. And they have a good Android app aswell so you can post it directly from your phone^^ If you have an Android and take the pictures with it.

I'll give it a shot.

Well I finally got my 1st game in on Saturday, actually 2 but I have to say WOW! I love the new rules. The games were so easy and much fun was had. My first game was against IG and the 2nd was against Blood angels. I'm going to do a betrep, I took notes, soon. I got pics too, there is the rub. Posting from Flikr just makes it where ya'll have to click the links and I know how much of a pain that is. Bare with me.

For quick right now I won the first 9 to 3 and lost the last 7 to 3.

Looking forward to those BatReps Dread. I'm glad to see you had some success right out of the gate (but not too much, so it'll keep you hungry!).

As far as using Flikr, if you click the share arrow, then select the BB Code, you can copy and paste this into your script without issue and without a need to link back to the source. You do have to delete a lot of the code (leaving the first [i.m.g]to the next[/i.m.g]), but it isn't too arduous.

Thanks for the help. I'm still looking. Haven't found a bb code yet.

Thanks grizzly but that's why I'm trying to find another share site. Photobucket has made it to where you have to pay to share. Unfortunately I can't really afford that.

On another note, I did a couple of trades yesterday. Got Voldus, Cypher and a box of jet bikes and some bits for an imperial knight. Another trade was my ravenwing for the new game box, libraian and chaplain. Played 2 games, lost both but didn't care, had lots of fun.

Still need to write out report. Took good notes so maybe tonight I can jot it down and post. Maybe figure out the pic thing.

Hey Dread, I was caught in the same issue with photobucket. I downloaded all my images off their site and I was able to upload them very easily on imgur. They've got a pretty easy to use mobile app as well.

Thanks bud. I've downloaded imgur already and just have to see how to work it. I'll give it another go.

Sorry I didn't get the bat rep done. But my excuse is I found out what was wrong with my hands. Just as I thought, it was one of my meds. Weaned myself off, no more shakes, cramps or pain. Started drawing and painting up a storm just to see. I've worked for hours each night and no problems. So I went out leased a building and am starting up my new tattoo shop. This has taken a front seat to everything else. So hopefully I get back to models and games soon. Til then I live vicariously thru ya'll for my gaming fun.

G'day Dread!
Am so happy for you, mate, for the news on your hands AND the shop. As a commercial artist myself, Dread, can understand how frustrating it must have been to not be able to create at will. Guess we take it for granted sometimes... Be well!

So I hope ya'll are ready for a shining spear box set, I say this because every time I do a conversion it seams GW releases the model or takes them away. Since they're in the book, shouldn't be the later.

Since the new jetbikes have a combat screen popped up from the cowl, I didn't use the original spear left arm, less conversion work.

Feels good to be working on my Eldar again, for that matter my models. My last dabble was a few months back.

They're looking really cool Dread, looking forward to seeing more progress on these guys.

Also, any chance you could start working on plastic conversions of Swooping Hawks, Howling Banshees, Striking Scorpions, Dark Reapers, Fire Dragons, Warp Spiders, Vypers, Rangers and Phoenix Lords? Let's get this GW ball rolling!

Thanks SD. I now have Sundays and Mondays off. Not only building/painting but also gaming. Excited.

See what I can do Looshkin  Hahahaha :)  since I have 40 banshees (all 3 incarnations) not them but spiders, I have only 5. Never liked the sculpture so may be my next endeavor.

Hey Grizz, sorry I didn't get to do that bat rep a while back, life calming down now.

Those look awesome Dread! Never liked the old style jetbikes, but the new ones are beautiful. You've made the two work together really nicely :)

Potential pending plastic kits is one of the reasons i've never had a go at converted Aspects...although we have been waiting a rather long time...
