>Grooving edition.Welcome to the Warhammer 40k General!>Here we discuss the brand new Warhammer 40k figures!>Archived Threads:https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/subject/Warhammer%2040k%20General/>Previous thread: >>8905712
>>8941065ToyMarineMaker@gmail.com here, I'm loving all the finished up marines! Awesome work that continues to inspire me! I have a bunch of half painted guys I hope to get done soon myself!More to come, working to mass produce jetpacks and I have like 5 more sister head styles in the works too. Chaos and some more cool models are on the horizon for sure. Thanks for all the support and I appreciate the feedback also!The painted sax does it justice!
>>8941231People are going to do heretical things with that head sculpt.
>>8941231Must get some of these soon for the APs coming
Someone finally made and is selling a tech marine axe, so I felt inspired to go back to making a techmarine. I also picked up one of those overpriced shoulder pads.I just need to figure out where to get and attach a robot claw, find some appropriately sized tubing, maybe rip off the the chest wings and fill it with apoxie sculpt, maybe play around with pla plate and either dye or paint all this red.
goddamn mcfarlane. hurry up and make them more available in the UK.
Wish McFarlane was making them Deathwatch instead of regular chapters if he's not releasing a full contingent of any single chapter.
>>8943155its cannon that you can only like deathwatch if you are a virgin. just letting you know that the best chapter is blood angels.
>>8943165>just letting you know that the best chapter is blood angels.I mean, they're my favorites, but if you're dropping all these specialists on my and NOT A blood Angels assault marine, what's even the fucking point?
>>8941231> ChaosYou have my complete and undivided attention, even though you already had it.
Who else on here has gotten a White Battle sister? Surely I cant be the only one.
>>8943348I can't even fucking find a regular sister.
>>8943518Gamestop has both the sister and the Blood Angel on Sale.
>>8941231Well now, guess i'll be checking around for some Emperor's Children related parts.
>>8943155SecondedWith what they could have saved on common parts they could make up for with Chapter adornments.
>>8943348I'm guessing it's just a random chase variant of the red one like the gold/bronze versions they did in the DC line? It's gonna suck if so, because those were already kind of scarce and people will actually want these.
>>8943782I have not seen a single other picture of one, so I am curious if anyone on here got one as well. Does not seem like it
>>8943155>>8943584Star Trek got dropped after Wave 1 because Kirk and Picard didn't sell well enough. Picking out things like this instead of a more clean SM to decorate is mostly testing the waters to see if they would take off. The Necron didn't do nearly as well as the SM has and the SoB as well
>>8943847Necron are pretty dull to begin with, and when you add in McFarlane's less than ideal sculpt on that figure, you get an unappealing package overall.
>>8943880The Necron could've been a pure masterpiece of sculpting and engineering and still wouldn't have sold as much, honestly, by sheer fact that it's not a Space Marine (but I wouldn't call them dull, despite for most part agreeing). That said the sculpt is fine and looks really good when properly painted, just the base paint job isn't most appealing.
>>8943880I actually think the sculpt and paint on the stock Necron was really good. Paint was definitely better than the stock Marine.
>>8943880The necron was okay. I use him as an accessory right now, but I still thought it was fine.
>>8943890>>8944046>>8944074I guess I really didn't like the proportions. McFarlane's sculpt looks really squat and has the look of having no neck. I would really have liked a leaner, lankier Necron, and most critically, I would have liked the face to be longer and slimmer. I would also have liked the green energy shits to have some sort of crackling paint detailing and to be more of a neon green (I know you can do this yourself, but the non-AP line should be able to stand on its own as-is).I know this isn't quite fair though. I looked back at the New Edition trailer (which is certainly the source material for all of these) and the Necron in there DO look kinda bad proportionally. Oh well. Nothing do be done about it at this point, I doubt we'll ever get any Necron action figures from anyone else, and if we do, they won't be based on classic 40k either.
>>8944583We'll see how their flayed ones turn, maybe that'll turn you around on them.
Post your White Sisters you damn heretics!
>>8944954I wish it wasn't hard to find. I'd rather repaint this one as a base for what I have in mind rather than an AP. Still might if I can find one.
>>8944954I've seen three if these in store. Skipped every time because I don't really like the colors and the black one is good enough
>>8945182Passing up something that doesnt even have pictures online? Selling them could fuel your Warhammer budget for a good couple waves. I'm debating selling mine.
>>8941231I want to buy about $100 of stuff from you, would you ship to the UK?
>>8941751Are those Snap Ship weapons?
Newb question, but do Blood Angels have a particular affinity for plasma weapons?
Anyone know what matches the gold used on the assault intercessor? I want to grab another shoulder and change it to a heavy intercessor.
>>8945584It is the astrobot tarantula/wasp.
>>8945592Not really. Hellblasters roll in squads sporting their new plasma incinerators while the Lieutenant is being a special boy running around with a plasma pistol.
So, when will McFarlane give in to compete with the Japanese since Bandai isn't playing fair just making straight Marines?
>>8946179>Have huge armor to protect your vital organs>Still leave a giant gap in the stomach region for no reasonWhy do japs do this?
>>8946391It isn't about functionality for them, it's about tummy and thighs.
>>8946391retardation. japanese "armor" pisses me off to no end.
>>8946431It's not about "woke politics". It's about "amor" not actually being armor.
>>8946435I love when Warhammer fans start getting cranky about realism.
>>8946429Nips have no concept of heavy steel plate and, or chainmail because never in their history has a major army ever used such things in mass combat in their lands. Westerners never steamrolled them until guns were invented so no samurai ever had to face off against the fully enclosed carapace of a knight in his physical prime. Its all decoration to them unless you're a weirdo armor obsessed autist.
>>8946455>No concept of steel plate armorNanban do gosoku. An adaptation of contemporary European armor designs, adopted by some members of the samurai class as a response to the rising number of firearms in armies during the Sengoku era.Hell, even prior to this steel plate armor was being used even by peasant ashigaru in some armies. It might not have been as common as iron, but saying that the Japanese never used heavy steel armor is a straight up fabrication.
>>8946470>posts a movie written and drawn by weirdo armor obsessed autists that is currently busy letting all their properties turn into squishy shit. Notice what year that movie was made and how no one in Japan draws inspiration from it? Notice how no nip artists that draw armor in anime shows and movies for a living don't come close to the quality of that design? Hell, you didn't even know there was a figure of that design. Did you?
>>8946478>as a response to the rising number of firearms in armies during the Sengoku era.Now look at my post >>8946455 where it says >Westerners never steamrolled them until guns were inventedAs in no armor until guns were used. So no army had to face thousands of katanas and naginatas shattering or at least bouncing off a cadre of heavy plate / chainmail.
>>8946486My point is that you're making a completely asinine statement with no basis in reality outside of misinformed pop-history.The peasant soldiers of men like Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu were outfitted with copper, iron, and steel cuirasses and helmets, and samurai, especially from 1543 onwards, were typically armored with iron or steel plates with light chain protecting their extremities.Even in the West, your average soldier wasn't decked up in full steel plate armor. Up until the 16th century, a peasant militiaman was likely to have a gambeson/padded jack and maybe some chain, while a man-at-arms was more likely to use something along the lines of half-plate or lamellar. Heavily armored knights were comparatively rare next to men in padded cloth, leather, and iron chain.
>>8946495Steel armor existed prior to the introduction of firearms to Japan, but saw less use compared to iron and copper as a result of its rarity. Japanese warfare prior to the Sengoku period largely emphasized smaller, faster engagements compared to the larger battles seen on Continental Asia and Europe.
>>8946498I don't know who that is. I just like talking about the Sengoku period.
>>8946493So VOTOMS, Patlabor, etc also don't count?
>>8946496>most of Japan's feudal history is samurai cutting through all kinds of armor with glorious thousand times folded katanas making armor seem useless. >faction's signature design is full plate gothic knight armor>Nips artists that aren't obsessed with western armor consider bits of metal on the chest, head and knees as full armor.>obviously they don't value full-plate aesthetic There now fuck off with this obscure history bullshit that doesn't apply to 90% of what Nip actually believes faggot.
>>8946514Mecha are not powered armor doofus. They are tanks with legs. Next you'll say a man with a jetpack is comparable to a fighter jet.
>>8946500>Japanese warfare prior to the Sengoku period largely emphasized smaller, faster engagementsI like this post actually agrees that Japan doesn't use armor really because speedy victory is favored over big, long battles. Still tries to say the whole samurai armor eventually was made with metal, but it never got to Gothic Plate levels of protection / engineering which is my point.
>>8946537>VOTOMS aren't mecha>never shows pilots using arms and legs to move the limbs>they even have a cockpit with controlsNever been to /m/ have you?
>>8946391Because it's hot, not like they actually wear this.
>>8943165real best chapter is Angry Marines
>>8946391>>8946429>>8946431>>8946455Y'all know that's by a Chinese artist, right?
>>8943165Weird way to spell Salamanders.
For those interested, the Walmart exclusive blood angel is back up and seems to be strongly in stock. They'll go fast as there does not appear to be a purchase limit on it
>>8946391You will never understand because you have the gay
>>8946436They are expendable.
>>8946941>I can’t be the only one that’s think Vulkan’s enormous cock is hiding under that loin cloth
>>8946940In a Japanese style.
>>8947041space marines don't have peepees
I ordered a Sister as a pre-order like a week ago. Were they lying? Do I have any chance of buying it for a retail price from a shop?
>>8947101They have pee-pees, just underdeveloped and in general injected with chemicals that kill sex drive and make sex non-pleasurable. Several loyalist and traitor legions have had sex.
Back in stockhttps://www.walmart.com/ip/seort/493083286?comm-msg-vehicle=EMAIL&comm-msg-id=17016483-0000-4853-9124-43e5e565e082
Hey, have any of you guys tried putting magnets if your weapons so they stick to figure? I’m told it’s a trick used in Warhammer models.
>>8947613It works, I used 6x3s for my Stompa, while they hold do wish I had used big larger sized since the saw arm isn't as secure as the gun arm, but the head and other parks are in solid. Anything in that ballpark should work great for these McFarlane models, not sure of their exact scale though.
>>8947562And immediately out of stock again it seems.
>>8947562Walmart Exclusive Dc Comics Warhammer 7" Figwhat the fug
Character Shop/DC Comics Characters/Batman/Batman Toyskek
>>8947634I got my 10 copies :>
>>8947763Well, than you can just lightly rest your eyeballs on my testicles.
>>8941231Any hints on chaos? I've been holding onto my chaos boltor and chaos helmet to do a word bearers.
>>8947643Probably a hint on how McFarlane is sneaking stock for an incredibly niche property into mass market stores.
>>8948082>for an incredibly niche property And yet, they sell out almost immediately, always.
>>8948086They also go for sometimes triple the price on the after market.
>>8948086So do Mezco figuresWe dont know how many are being sold, but the fact you can't actually find them in mass market stores should let you know they're not ordered in the hundreds of thousands.So McFarlane sneaking it in is how Walmart started carrying only that specific figure, as part of another line.
>>8948171well with this walmart exclusive there is no purchase limit on it when you add it to your cart. i'm sure the scalpers will lap this up for the whales because of the exclusive + gold label bullshit.
>>8946537>VOTOMS: Vertical One-man Tank for Offense & ManeuverSI am a big fan of the show m8, it's mecha.
Base color is in. My word bearer is looking nice. I hope tmm makes a chaos packs and some spikes.
>>8948274I always forget that the Word Bearer's have red armor. For a Chaos Undivided Chapter, it always felt like a very Khornish color scheme. But then the Black Legion have the Black and Gold covered and the Iron Warriors have the gun metal grey so not many options available I guess.
>>8947101>>8947373This shit never made much sense to me from a lore perspective. When in history have castrated men ever made good soldiers?
>>8948296They aren't castrated. They just lessen or remove their sex drive so they don't get tempted to fuck some thicc Xenos or turn to Chaos due to some Daemon thot. They don't undergo any of the major changes like those until well into adulthood anyway.
>>8948292Alpha Legion has the best scheme to me. They stand out more.
>>8948311First things first>>8948311>Alpha Legion>Chaos ChapterThere, now that the meme is out of the way, I as a fan of the Salamanders, I am so annoyed at the fact that the Alpha Legion has the cool Dragon Scale stuff on their armor and the Salamanders don't. It looks so fucking cool and you'd think the chapter that actively hunts dragons on their planet would have more of a dragon motif in their armor.That said the Alpha Legion is a great design and I'd be lying if I didn't say I kind of like to believe that they aren't a Traitor Legion.
>>8948323If they went that way with the Salamanders you just know they'd drive it into the ground like they do with Space Wolves
>>8948340Probably. But despite how dumb the Space Wolves obsession with Wolves is, they do fucking look cool. Embracing the Viking thing works for the Space Wolves. Its why the Black Templars are so liked too, they are fully embracing the crazed religious fervor of the whole Knight's Templar, Deus Vult, Kill the Heathens, for The Holy Land thing.
>>8948346This would require modern GW to produce more than a pack that includes two helmets and some plain paldrons with a raised emblem which is not going to happen.
>>8948320I bet McFarlane and GW are keeping an eye on sales of the non current stuff to see if it's viable to sell. The more Blood Angels sell, and the Lieutenant, the more non-current things we might see.
>>8948357To me they're just selling what GW wants them to sell. Anything GW is currently producing and focusing on would be what we'd get from McF. Their recent Ork reveal gives me hope for Orks.
>>8948357Blood Angels aren't current? I thought they were kinda evergreen.
Been working on painting my AP Intercessor in my custom Deathwatch scheme.
>>8948359100%. Todd has previously mentioned he was excited for the possibilities for the Warhammer license, but I bet he's treating it like he's treating DC, letting the licensor have full reign in hopes of building a good relationship with them, and possibly being able to do some personal/deep dive choices at some point. If nothing else, perhaps we'll see a Spawn inspired Ultramarine (paint), or perhaps even a Todd designed Ultramarine (like they've done with DC) as exclusives. Not sure how much the hard-core Warhammer fans would care, but the casuals would probably like it.
>>8948464Casuals ain't buying warhammer toys dude. There's a reason Necrons have been shelfwarming basically everywhere.>>8948441Albafusa probably caused more damage to 40k and warhammer in general than any other internet community.
>>8948477>Albafusa probably caused more damage to 40k and warhammer in general than any other internet community.
>>8948464>perhaps we'll see a Spawn inspired Ultramarine (paint)Those were the best of times during the Halo license. I even made a few custom ones after.
>>8948480If you genuinely believe that TTS is funny then you haven't had bad memes smashed into your skull for almost a decade by tertiary geek culture douchebags. Some of the jokes he appropriated were funny in the same way that flashgitz' stuff was in the moment, but making the exact same fucking jokes and dispensing them to the stupidest motherfuckers who then regurgitate them ad nauseum is a fucking crime.
>>8948323Indeed, Salamanders bros deserve scales. Gold and green is nice.Also just found this pic while searching for McFarlane customs.
>>8948487Oh fuck off with that shit. Let people like what they like you fucking douchebag.
>>8948500where do you think you are?
>>8948499The fact he painted up the pegholes to look like part of the armor is impressive, never would have even thought to do that.
>>8948507I thought I was on /toy/ which used to be one of the best and most laid back boards on this site, where no one was really an asshole. Now it feels like we're on fucking /v/.
>>8948499I gotta get good at working putty. I have some apoxie sculpt thats been sitting around.
>>8948514>/toy/ which used to be one of the best and most laid back boards on this site, where no one was really an asshole.LOL, maybe back in 2008 when it was first created and ONLY for like the first few months.Didn't take long for people to take up their brand loyalties to start their brand wars, and tripfags to start lording over the place.Only difference between now and /toy/ up until 2012-2014 is the lack of community. Vague year, because it's hard to give a definitive point as to when it started to go to shit. Only a few threads on /toy/ have the same atmosphere /toy/ used to have.
>>8948537>because it's hard to give a definitive point as to when it started to go to shitWhat year did people stop doing shit like Giveaways and that Secret Santa thing? I feel like that was around the time when the assholery started to increase.
>>8948574I don't remember, because i honestly didn't give a shit. I only have vague memories of it because i personally knew people who came here and were involved with that shit. They stopped coming here in 2011 or thereabout
>>8948537Fuck off Subjectanon. You are not welcome here.
>>8948459Wht's going on with the helm there? Is that a modified Mk.VII? Can we get a closer look?
>>8948773I think its the default head. I thought he had some different custom head but then I realized it was the scope of the rifle.
>>8948537>LOL, maybe back in 2008 when it was first created and ONLY for like the first few months.Nah. You know how they say if you think everyone around you is an asshole, you're probably the asshole? Rings true here. Myself and a lot of people I knew had a great time on /toy/ being nice to others, and being treated nice in return. Nowhere on 4chan was every totally drama/troll-free, but for a long time, /toy/ was overall a very chill and nice place if you were willing to put in what you wanted to get back.
>>8948794>You know how they say if you think everyone around you is an asshole, you're probably the asshole? Sorry, but if you don't remember the brand wars with Figma, Revoltech and Figuarts, you definitely weren't here before 2010.I had no horse in that race, as i don't give a shit about Evangelion waifus and all the generic schoolgirls being released that had all the weeaboos warring against each other.Slowly their poison entered the threads i did care about.Maybe you had a blast posting Shinki fanart to bump your thread every hour so you could talk about whatever inane stuff was going on there, but fuck if other people weren't angry about that spamming, especially since captcha and cooldown wasn't implimented back then.There's a reason why Shinki shit was hated on /toy/.Dont think i was spamming or shitposting in retaliation just because i remember that, I'm just pointing out that it wasn't as fun and games as you've obviously misremembered. Other shit was subject to that spam as well, especially General Noodles stuff, where he couldn't take a hint on when to stop.Nevermind all the other idiotic drama with all the tripfags. Shit's worse than the moronic youtube drama, since people would harass them in normal threads. Note that i said "normal thread" because they'd create their own threads for whatever reasons.Nah, you're just reminding me of how SSDD this entirely is. This shit never stops... aside from captcha and cooldowns. a mixed blessing.
Fairly new to the 40k general, but have people here already received their bandai Imperial Fists or Salamander figures from the GW website? I've seen some on twitter already out there.
>>8948892Just the britbongs so far.
>>8948246Just asking for proof of your claims, I already got my order in weeks ago when they went up here in the UK.
>>8948574We still do Secret Santa though
Word Bearer is done until new stuff comes out or I get good at sculpting.
Why does McShartland refuse to make a Tactical Marine?
>>8949462As was discussed in this thread, likely because GW doesn't want them to. If you don't like the company why would you even want them to make it? Why not hope Bandai does it?
Will they ever rerelease the base artist proof marine? I only managed to snag one and I wish I got at least 3 more
>>8949531They probably will at some point.
>>8949162 It looks exactly like a YouTube video I saw in my recommended yesterday.
>>8949655What a pro, damn. This will be helpful for the future but there’s no way I’ll get to that level of execution any time soon.
>>8949531They re-released the sergeant a bit back (which immediately sold out), so maybe, just keep an eye out.
>>8949655NIGHT LORDS CONVERSION WHEN!?
>>8949655Fuck me that's damn good. And best of all it WASN'T A FUCKING DEATHGUARD!
TMM has the new sister heads uphttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Custom-Action-Figure-Weapons-Helmet-Warhammer-40K-McFarlane-New-Space-Marine-Lot/114517513734?hash=item1aa9c69606:g:cgMAAOSwL5xfxabT
>>8950504this guy is a fucking godsend i might just start buying his shit to support him.
>>8950609I got a laugh out of this one.
Every day I check this thread hoping to see if any leafs spotted the lieutenant. I hate waiting games
>>8950613It'll likely go up for preorder on TRU. The first set of them were available for preorder until they came out, and they're still available now. If they're coming through TRU again, there's nothing to worry about.
>>8949099Where do you buy in the UK?
>>8950645I ordered mine from ComicsandCocktails, it's due to come out next month.InDemand Toys also has it and probably a few other collector shops.
>>8950650Actually scratch that lazy bit, the PO is sold out on InDemand but C&C, Collectable Kingdom and Firestorm Games have it.
>>8950688>lazy bit*last bit
>>8941231I need a guitar to go with the sax. Doesn't have to be full as blown as the McF Batman Metal guitar coming but something fun and reasonably scaled would be cool with a 40k/Metal feel
>>8950633TRU canada is trash. I think were fucked until shit reopens.
>>8950698The Mcfarlane Johnny Silverhand comes with a guitar. Just a tad small looking. The NECA Bill and Ted came with a pair of guitars and they scale better. So you have options if you can track those down loose.
>>8941231this dude is the best thing to come out of Rhode Island since James Woods
I just got my hands on a AP sister of battle. I'm worried about the rubberized bits holding paint, any recommendations for it?
>>8950786Primer and Airbrush. Barring that, just use multiple thinned coats.
>>8950762Sure, their website is absolutely garbage (why it isn't stocked with product in stores during lockdown is beyond me), but again, for Gold Label figures, they are readily available.
>>8950767Well the Sax was 3D printed so if we could get something in the vein of an ax with chains, skulls, crosses, and wings worked in.. maybe some rivets it felt like it may be more fun
>>8950875The guitar on the deathmetal batman may look good.
>>8950504>KarenKek. Also Rose is a cute. Good job as always!
>>8944954Haven't seen any yet
>>8950762I found all these at a Canadian Tru.
>>8951240Minus the 2 Ap sisters.
>>8951240>white is my favorite color scheme>still cant find itKill me.
>>8949655This was incredible to watch. Really inspiring. And yet, I know when I sit down to my workbench, all fired up, all that will come out is trash. Oh well...guess everyone's gotta start somewhere, eh?
>>8951231I like how the blue marine looks with the other marines helmet on, makes me want to get the two now if I had the space.
>>8951540yeah, anyone can develop a skill after some attempts
I dont like blood angels, would it be FUCKED UP if I spray-painted the entire lieutenant figure gold?
>>8952017It'll end up in WM stores after reset so do what you want
>>8950698>>8950767ToyMarineMaker@gmail.com here, I like the guitar idea and started on a prototype that about 5.5" long. Can someone measure another one and see if that seems in the ballpark?Glad people like the sister names, you have to make your own fun!
>>89520855.5" looks really good with the size of the armor
>>8949462You know if you buy a head from TMM and like cut off the extra bits on the knee pads, you'd have a Tactical Marine right? I get that people hate the Primaris Marines for various reasons, but for the most part they look no different from a standard Astartes.
>>8952820There’s lots of differences between them, actually. Someone made a super accurate smurf conversion that really shows how different they are. Hopefully someone still has that picture laying around.
>>8952834I'd like to see that actually. I know there are plenty of differences, but there are also like 10 versions of Space Marine armor and each of those have various little differences amongst themselves and they all still maintain the "Space Marine look" if you know what I mean.But I do get missing pre-Primaris stuff. I for one am really fucking annoyed at the fact that they don't have Devestator Squads and Terminator Armor now. That shit pisses me off.
>>8951231Is that TMM's square shield?
When they stop doing Primaris and they start doing smaller regular beakies, then I'll be interested.
>>8952928GW laughs at you. "You get Primaris or nothing."
>>8952928Even if they made the old marine they'll end up being the same size as the Primaris
>>8952870yeah it is.
>>8952938Primaris would be much more likeable with beakies
>>8953142GW scratches their head. "Hm, not the worst idea. We'll consider it."
>>8953067Man that his big. Looking forward to putting in a few orders soon
>>8953142>>8953191Primaris Beakies technically exist, but as a fucking upgrade kit.
>>8941751how do the shields connect to the shoulder armor?
>>8953827Square peg and glue.
>>8941231>Actual crafted chain rosaryYou absolute madman. >>8945592>do Blood Angels have a particular affinity for plasma weapons?No, the dark angels do, but for some reason they gave the plasma gun to a blood angel. In the same way the blood angel should have gotten the bolt pistol / chainsword that the ultramarine got (who is the poster child for the two handed bolter). I know it's based on the trailer, but after the blood angel I'm expecting the salamander to come with a lascanon and the imperial fist to come with a flamethrower or some other such thing.
>>8946436They're wearing the heaviest, most impenetrable armour of all. Plot armour.
>>8943165>best>blood angelsshouldn't you be performing heresy by serving your necron masters in a vampire den or something?
>>8954094You can get one in the greebles pack he sells
>>8948296>When in history have castrated men ever made good soldiers?Seems stupid, but it really depends on whether or not you soliders go to war against literal slut demons trying to tempt and seduce your armies.
>>8948359>Their recent Ork revealSource: your ass
>>8954094The weapons make sense given they're Fire Support Hellblasters and it gives an alternate weapon to get out there so it doesn't feel repetitive from Wave 1. I fully expect a Blood Angels Intercessor to arrive either with the Blaster/Chainsaw sword from Wave 1 Ultramarines or the AP Bolt Rifle
>>8954141My bad, disregard, I suck cocks etc. I thought he meant an ork reveal from McFarlane toys, not an ork reveal from GW. I'm torn because as a snakebites player, I'm excited for new figures that aren't evil suns, evil suns, mad max was cool rite guyz evil suns, and sometimes goffs in vehicles repainted from the evil suns. On the other hand, that means my NPC army becomes meme flavour of the month and now it's going to be buffed to sell models so everyone hates it, and then in three months nerfed to hell and abandoned for another ten years. This is genestealer cults all over again.
>>8953327Damn, that looks good
>>8948296Space Marines have extra organs providing them with much better hormones, they don't need to rely on human testicles.
Did I miss the chance to get the Blood Angels Lieutenant, or is it still showing up in stores?
>>8954625WM is in the middle of clearance and reset, they haven't been to the stores yet just online sales. Click the notification link as it comes back in stock online now and again
>>8954725oh sweet thanks
>>8954625my local Walmart had the spot for him, but was sold out, you need to go check right now. Hes by the batman figures.
Still no shipment notices for the Bandai Intercessors.I'm gonna go feral if they don't drop soon.
>>8953852Why do you tell lies?
>>8953305I have a dremel and a dream so this is my goal.
Man, these heads are just too fucking good. I wish I waited a few days to order so I could've gotten the akt heads in one go.Definitely not done but couldn't resist getting an idea how it comes together.
>>8956900amazing job, anon. how did you get the details so precise? I've personally never painted anything before and I'm in way over my head, but i keep ordering more heads.
>>8956920Thanks! I've been slow building a surf army for better part of a year now, so LOTS of practice with some size 00 brushes from Artist Opus. Even then, I've never painted a head at this scale so I'm in newer territory.The biggest thing that was ever holding me back for painting fine detail was the fear of fucking up; once you stop caring you realize you don't really fuck up THAT much, and if you do then just use acrylic so it can be cleaned off and redone.
>>8956900At this point I'm in isolation but I'm tempted to get a Sista. Probably get around the being in Canukistan by sending to my GF's aunt in Texas. - she's down with this stuff - which is nice.
I'm asking for the anon who posted the pics of when he got his Bandai Imperial Fists Intercessor.He said he had to do a few tweaks to it out the box to make it a bit better. What were they again?
>>8954103>necron>not xenosYou revealed yourself heretic!
>>8941065pls don't tell me that all Mechanicus are like thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PUzaDawTwk
>>8958237a very good number of Mechanicus would be like that, but not in the way people claiming 'gender is not binary' mean when they say it. No Mechanicus saying such a thing unironically would beleive that concept Gender is some stupid foolish unenlightened meatbag thing. Those enlightened in the ways of the Machine Spirit would likely feel gender has no place in the realm of machines outside of terms like 'male/female ports'. They would not be in support of someone trying to be 'opposite gender', but they likely would not be against it either. They simply don't give a shit because the trans person does not beep or boop like a computer. If they care at all, they would be more concerned with trying to get the person to transition to the far superior form of the machine. Who gives a shit about the fleshy bits between the legs, whatever they may be should be removed and replaced with a beautiful and orgasmic plasma pistol.
>>8957268I know that the 40k fandom has been diluted to the point that it's just a series of unfunny memes in 2021 but holy fuck how do you not get this reference.
>>8958392Simple, if McFarlane makes a tech priest I am going to take >>8958387 advice and mod it to have a Plasma pistol mounted in their crotch.
>>8958394I know that 40k fandom has been diluted to the point it's just a bunch of /v/tubers reading 1d4chan, but holy shit man how do you not realize the content of his joke? By calling any Xenos by their actual name it reveals the person to be nothing more then a filthy Xenos sympathizer.
>>8952085>>8956900Awesome paint job on the sister head!Working on the guitar, this is prototype #2. I printed it as a left handed guitar so he's not playing it upside down. I put a small hole in so flexible plastic can be inserted for a cord. I'm going to work on an Amp next with some kinda warhammer motif, then I think it will be complete
My Hellblaster and Battle Sister arrived early! Was expecting them Monday so that was an awesome surprise.Hellblaster is so rad!
Battle Sister looks awesome too! Not as nice as the marines, but still really cool.
Wish she had an extra open-palm hand so she could comfortably two-hand her bolter. I think you can do that now if you wanted, but I fear you'd stretch the hand out over time.
>>8958867You know you're gonna have to make like a Drum Kit and a Keyboard now right? Oh no, a Keytar.
Picked up 10 figures in the last week... I may have a problem (or a growing fav collection.)
by the Emperor where the fucking shit is my Imperial Fists marine
>>8957128Click the biceps all the way into the shoulder joints until the cap can’t slide up and down on the internal structure. Both my Ultramarine and my Imperial Fist had this issue.If you can find this gap on yours, it isn’t in all the way. Also you may want to leave the Bolter slung on the Fist’s shoulder for a while to work out the kinks in the strap.
>>8959204What it should look like.
>>8958867Electric guitar with new "Imperatoria" brand amp! I'll get some of these printed and they should be available for sale within a week, along with some other new things. I like the keyboard idea, I also want to adapt my servo skull to hold a microphone.My ebay link was posted above, I just added an option for international shipping
>>8960024Based. You kick ass dude.
>>8959204>>8959209Sainted. Now I wait.
>need two more blood angels for display>all of the targets are now empty of everythingSigh. My own fault for not getting more the other week. Hopefully Target gets a restock
>>8960797I bought 4 AP blasters just in case everything goes out.
Just checked the Weekly Warhammer video, and according to that we'll be seeing the next wave of McFarlane figures this coming week. Unless there are some surprises, I guess that'll be the Bloody Rose Sister and Flayed Necron. At 53s.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWzHe0GnGvY&ab_channel=Warhammer
>>8960882They’ll finally show off that raven guard marine hopefully.
>>8957268>>8957268>You revealed yourself>assuming I was ever part of the imperium of man>assuming any garden variety imperial isn't dumber than a bag of gits
>>8960882>>8960928>No templarslife is suffering.
>>8961011After the raven guard comes out it’ll be the easiest Templar conversion. Unless they make it really hard to get.
>>8960839I've picked up 3 AP Blasters so far. I figured the painted Blood Angels (and SoBs) wouldn't vanish as quickly from some of the boonies I drive through but they certainly did. Good for sales. I want this line to keep going.
>>8960882>Bloody Rose Sister>Flayed One>Raven Guardyo what's up? Why do we think that's what's next?
>>8961902That Raven Guard is pure sex. Going to grab the by the armful.
>>8961902That Raven Guard looks good, and I know that White Helmets are part of their motif somtimes, but does anyone else get the feeling that someone at McFarlane thinks the Helmets on the Marines should never be the same color as the rest of the armor?
>>8953305Where is this from? That's something someone made right?
>>8961922I feel like it's Todd thinking that too much of the same color will affect sales so the head needs to pop.
>>8961933Guy called Action Figure Toronto on instagram made it. It looks like a lot of sanding, dremeling, putty and 3D prints went into it.
>>8961937Likely this is part of it until he's sure the sales are stable, but also possibly to get people to buy more to headswap down the road
US bros. Have any of you gotten your Bandai marines from GW yet? I still haven't gotten anything from them yet
>>8958394If you love Japan so much then take a trip to the suicide forest, if you don't get it that was a Logan Paul reference.
>>8961993Nothing so far. Hopefully we'll get at least a shipping notice before the end of the month. A but frustrated because they were supposed to be shipping back in late March.
>>8948304I always thought it was replacing their sex drive and direct more towards service to the emperor. Redirected energy, so to speak. AFAIK the space wolves still fuck their wenches.
>>8948304>>8962143Space Wolves canonically fuck. Lukas the Trickster was mentioned to hold a record for most women bedded in one night and Bjorn the Fell-Handed flirts with an inquisitor in one book.Ultimately most astartes just have an extremely limited or non-existent sex drive. It's also been implied in the past that they're sterile.
>>8961902Ethan Van Scinver's Hal Jordan? Sign me up.
>>8961899>>8961902oh cool.But an unpainted Flayed One is like the least interesting unpainted figure ever.
>>8961902Faggot Etrigan ruins everything he appears in so this is most probably the end of the McFarlane line. It was good while it lasted bros. See you later and goodbye.
>>8962531DCUC started with him on series 1 so I doubt it. Also all the fucken Batman crap keeps McFarlane's Multiverse afloat
>>8962497One thing that would be interesting for painters to do would be the skin parts. It could probably be done in a very gruesome way for talented painters. Between the meat chunks, and the blood dripping from them.
>>8961899Here's hoping they actually improved Geralt's face.>>8961902That raven guard is looking nice, but I still need to find the hellblaster and sister.
>>8961902>Another bolt pistol/chainsword comboGoddammit Todd, you have so many weapons to choose from.
>>8962690Be aware that the picture is nothing official, it seems to be some combination of leaks and speculation. Also from what can be told, this is supposedly the listing for something along the lines of "SDCC Warhammer Marine", so it was at least intended to be some exclusive. It's fully possible he does just come with the original Sergeant's weapons, but it's honestly just speculation until we see it.
I'm just sitting here waiting for a Dark Angel, preferably with a unique weapon like one of those bolters with a cope.
>>8961370What? Just because of the color scheme? Look at the Blood Angels he made compared to the artist proof versions. They have all those extra bits and pieces you have to remove. Nah man, unless the additional bits are as chapter neutral as the extra bits on the Ultramarine Sergeant, they will end up being more work to convert to Templars then the APs are.
>>8962715I hope so, I want a marine with a bolt rifle, mainly since I couldn't actually get the AP one.
Picked up some Lts in store. 2 to keep, 1 to give to a friend who missed the website window
>>8962733I hope the Bandai Space Wolf comes with a chainaxe and not a combat knife.
>>8963827A Bandai Space Wolf would just be a shame. They aren't willing to put in the money or care to do shit like runes, fur, tails, teeth, skulls, seals, and all the little accoutrements that make Space Wolves look like the grungy Viking motherfuckers they are.
>>8963901Yeah but they would be Primaris Space Wolves, I doubt they would have started going full Viking mode with the extra bits. And I'm talking like the first wave Primaris, not the Upgraded Original Marines. Those dude would keep their shit, but the fresh from stasis Primaris who just get plopped into whatever Chapter they are assigned to wouldn't have any of that.And I think I just finally understood the hate for the Primaris Marines.
Popping in from /kaiju/ to ask if there are any Tau figures? I like how they look and think they'd be neat to pose with my figures.
>>8962901It looks like a redeco of the smurf captain unless that helmet is different.
>>8964160Nothing yet. Only things available are marines, sister of battle, and a necron warrior.
>>8964301It could just be a mockup, like the Ultramarines Intercessor they showed off with the initial announcement
For any anons in MA, the Target in Marlboro, near Solomon Pond, has Sisters. 3 painted, now one AP
>>8961902>2 Bloodsports>2 Peacemakers>masked and unmaskedCouldn't just do extra heads huh?
>>8964913Ehh, let him milk the DC fans
>>8964913This is fucking Todd we're talking about. His Kickstarter Spawn needed stretch goals for alternate fucking heads.
>>8965072Oh and each figure had different heads. Hope you didn't want that one head because it only comes with whatever figure you didn't want as much as the other one.
>>8964663Any white ones?
Hey TMM I've got a question if/when your in here next. How come you don't sell the Devestator Bundle anymore, just the Backpack and Heavy Bolter separately?
>>8960024Price for planning?
>>8961961>Action Figure Torontohttps://www.actionfiguretoronto.com/
guys, i'm kinda feelin the itch to make cutenid plushies....
Getting rid of all the primaris bits was a nightmare. I just need to sand some more, putty out those lines, and sand even more.
>>8965616Nice job! If we're being nitpicky, that helmet doesn't go with that version of the armor though. Mk. VI "Beakies" should have totally smooth shoulder pauldrons with no external border, no rounded kneepad (the shin is just one unbroken piece), and the tummyplate and winged skull are replaced with a three-sided strap setup. I'm sure you don't care that much though! It looks cool either way.
>>8965642I was going to have two helmet for the one guy. Beakie and regular, but now that you mention it that would bug me.
>>8965616and even then the abdomen armor is still there... Need them tubes and possible some parts that add height to them
>>8965642One question though, would Raven Guard wear beaks in every iteration of the armor? I wasn't planning on making one but I'm curious about their dedication to their aesthetic.
>>8965656I could probably glue thin black straps to his abdomen but it still wouldn't be complete because of the sides. I don't think I'll lose sleep over something that'll be covered by his boltor most of the time.
>>8965656I believe the tubes are only a Mk. VII thing. The others have various different types of stomach areas, from plating to straps.>>8965657Hmm, not sure about that. I don't know much about Raven Guard.
>>8965642You can put beaky helmets on any Mk of armor. Space Marine armor is an ancient heirloom passed down from Marine to Marine over hundreds or thousands of years. A shoulderpad from on mark ending up with a chest piece from another mark happens
>>8965844Hmm, yeah, guess so. Dunno why that never occurred to me. Probably because after so many years painting minis the "proper" configurations of all the gear are burned into my brain.
>>8965657Raven Guard marines used to test-field the Corvus armor (beakie helmet) because that suit is best-suited for their infiltration tactics. That's why most of them use it but some have the more widely-used aquila power armor.
>>8965642thats complete nonsense https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Power_Armour#Mark_6_.22Corvus_Armour.22
Salamander Anon hereI'm disassembling the AP Sister, and here's a few things to look out for>The head will pop off easily, but it will probably take the barbell joint with it. Heating up the inside of the helmet and cutting a small slit in the joint will make taking the barbell joint out very easy>There's a sort of "collar" piece that goes into the shoulder joint before the arm itself. I don't know if it's to simulate a butterfly joint, or what, but it just seems a bit unnecessary.>The bottom of the corset, along with the lower robes, are a single, soft rubber piece.the belt with the pouches, rosary, and grenades, is also separate piece, but that can be popped off of the lower body cover thing very easily.>there's also some weird choices of where rubber was used, and frankly, it's really stupid. the lower legs, from the pointing knee guards, to all around The shins and calves, down to the ankles, is rubber. The gauntlets on the arms are rubber. I have no idea why McFarlane would do that.>the backpack is removable, it just takes a little bit more Force than the Space Marine one.
>>8966089Sorry for all the typos, I'm doing voice to text. another thing I forgot to add, is that the belt piece has a appalling amount of mold flash on it. I'm going to have to spend a lot of time very carefully cleaning this up so I don't tear the thing, because the rubber on it is stupidly soft.
>>8966089The gauntlets are rubber so that the tip of the gauntlet can flex with the wrist of the figure. It's one of those considerations in toy design, do you make it functional (as in the wrists can still function in all directions), or do you leave it hard plastic as that wrist guard would be, but not allow the wrist to move in that direction.
>>8965616I'm considering just completely sculpting over the knees desu.
>>8966089the skirt being part of the lower torso is a shame
Got my goldenboy in
>>8967639yeah, ordered online
Finally managed to find an SP Sister. And the work on Celestine begins. Head is a placeholder until I get a head from TMM.
>>8967603Congrats. I've really been trying to hold back from getting more for fodder or something.>>8967871Nice!>>8965616This only convinces me we might get a more traditional looking version with a few slight changes to the base body. Gives me hope for future variety
>>8968055The only way we might get non-Primaris Marines is if it's going to be a Horus Heresy subline. For the 40k line its going to be only Primaris. And hopefully Chaos
>>8968275Shame but I'm loving the line so I'll keep going
>>8968338I just hope now that Covid is winding down the pace of releases will pick up a lot
>>8967871I like those wings. I wonder what else would be good. I got a pair of these evil batman wings that would look sick as a Celestine custom.
>>8968362Yeah, they're from the Ult. Vulture ML. I wish they were just a tad bigger and splayed outward a little more but I think they're good enough until I can find something better. I'm trying to see if I can figure something out to make them a little more articulated, but I'll probably just stick to fitting them into her backpack. Gotta find a good fit for her halo and sword too. Gonna have to shave down her sleeves and fill in the gap from removing the bit in the chest. Not sure if I'm gonna resculpt her chest or not though as she doesn't normally have the Fleur-de-lis on her tits.
>>8968437ML Archangel wings would be bigger and more articulated
>>8968458I thought about that but I don't feel like paying 45+ just for wings. Plus I want wings that go more out and up, if that makes sense.
>>8968275Ah, to think, in my youth, during the heady late 90s, where nothing but Mk. VIIs (and perhaps the odd Beakie) covered the land, I stared longingly at the cool Mk. IV helmets in old catalog pictures and wished I could have just one. Now I can't stand the sight of them thanks to Primaris. Like a mother seeing the echoes of her dead child's face every time she looks at her husband, there's just too much history there now.
Looks like the figuarts imperial fists are shipping to Canada now.
>>8970022Got my GW shipping notification for US today too.
So no Wave 3 reveal yet?
TMM got a new head, the Chaos Bolter and the Guitar up on his page.
>>8972747The bayonet was a nice touch over the first prototype. I’m hoping for more chaos in the future.
>>8972829He's made a Chaos helmet, I'm not really sure why he doesn't have it on his store page, but whatever.
>>8968437>>8968495Gundam has wings add on kit. Comes with two pairs of wings, one big and one small and they are articulated
Realistically, when will BBTS send me my shit?
>>8972078next week is Warhammer Fest
>>8972747ToyMarineMaker@gmail.com here, I hope people like some of the new stuff. I've been working on more chaos gear but have to fix a couple printers so it will take me longer than expected to post those. Most instruments to come!I'm trying to open up my ebay auction for international shipping, I'm working with a few users to get it to charge the right amount for shipping costs so it's not ready for everyone yet.I got a star wars guy i'm going to turn into a guardsman with a helmet and lasgun and a little paint too!
>>8973479>I got a star wars guy i'm going to turn into a guardsman with a helmet and lasgun and a little paint too!Look into the Mimban Trooper if you want a little less work>https://dorksidetoys.com/products/star-wars-the-black-series-han-solo-mudtrooper-6-action-figure-pre-order
>>8973463Daddy Todd don't let me down
>>8973794How fucking weird would it be if they just release a squat.
>>8974146The flayed ones look pretty rad, not gonna lie. That said easy pass for me. Hopefully we get some Chaos, Orks or Terminator Armor soon. Or just more reissues of the AP Marines.
>>8974146They couldn’t spring for a new sister head at least? Necron looks neat. No marine this time?
>>8974154>No marine this time?Well, we still have the raven guard in >>8961902But it might be the same thing as the Blood Angel Lieutenant, a walmart exclusive, or worse, a platinum chase figure like the white battle sister.
>>8974146Flayed One looks tempting. That being said, I was expecting more skin added on top of it.
>>8974146I thought the flayed one would probably be pretty dull, and I was right. Not very ambitious, and it's got the additional issue of being based on the new Necron. Some old Flayed Ones actually had partial corpses strapped to their backs and shit, that would have looked so good in figure form.Also, am I crazy, or is the AP a totally different torso and head mold than the standard release?
>>8974290It is different. Much like the other Artist Proofs where details are removed, like crests and what not, I guess they gave this guy different parts so they'd look more interesting next to each other.
>>8974398Wow, that's pretty cool of Todd, molds are expensive so that's nothing to sneeze at. It doesn't really make me want these boring Flayed Ones any more, but I acknowledge he's done a cool thing here.
>>8974416It's cool but let's not go crazy, the Flayed One uses the same bottom half as the Necron Warrior.
>>8973479Bro, those guardsman bits are awesome. If todd isnt gonna make guardsman any time soon I'd definitely try to make my own with your parts
>>8974447Still, good to know that if we get re-use that we'll also get new parts accompanying them here and there. Makes me think a bit of the Blood Angel mold with all the dings on it. They didn't need to do that, but it's a nice little thing. Shows there's some care going into this line.
