Quote from: Mr. Domino on Nov 10, 2013, 11:39:59 PMYou know, SpreadEagle, I don't think a single person on this forum has vacillated quite as often between eloquently explaining why other people shouldn't tell you what is and isn't valid in your own personal viewpoint on the franchise, and abrasively telling everyone that the things they like are obviously garbage.
Quote from: SpreadEagleBeagle on Nov 10, 2013, 11:57:20 PMWhoa! Where did that come from?I know that I'm vocal about things (and sometimes sound rather abrasive) but no more than other people on these forums. Don't know why I deserve that stamp when there are people here who are way more frequent way more on it. I guess I rubbed you the wrong way. If that's the case then I'm sorry.I never forced my view on anyone, I just protest quite loudly when the "Everything is canon" mob run the threads (...yes, I'm childish in that way).And btw. I'm not the only one around here who thinks that Steve Perry isn't that great and should stay away from Aliens since he has no love for them at all.
Quote from: Mr. Domino link=topic=49242.msg1804661#msg1804661 date wasn't meant as quite as much of a slam as I think you took it - there's a lot of people here who are always insensitive and disrespectful of others' opinions, and those people I can just safely disregard - but you, a lot of times, make posts that make me sit up and take note, particularly a lot of your thoughts on Alien 3. Those times, you're well-spoken, eloquent, and generally respectful. You're part of the reason I've come to like that film as much as I have. Conversely, though, any time there's an "everything is canon" thread, or someone mentions Steve Perry, or anything else you're not fond of, you tend to add your input in a somewhat less scholarly manner. I've found it disappointing when it's happened, and decided to make note of it here. Make of that what you will.
QuoteAs for the new close-up shots of the models, saw those on Facebook a few minutes ago. Very happy with them. I would, of course, be more happy with a more accurate runner, but it's worth remembering that these are 28mm. A little green stuff will go a long way towards making me happy with them so long as I'm not using a magnifying glass. The marine and Predator look outstanding. Here's hoping the helmet on the marine is a separate piece, as I intend to buy multiple squads, and I'd like to have as little clonage as possible.
Quote from: Mr. Domino on Nov 11, 2013, 05:20:39 PMYep, you'll be responsible for painting and assembly (or rather, you GET to assemble and paint them!) - these minis are like tiny model kits.As far as what the figures will look like, there are two kinds of shots Prodos has put up - CG renders and actual model shots. The most recent one labelled "Procast" at the top was an actual model shot, to give you an idea of the difference between the two. As an avid wargamer, I can tell you that in terms of sheer technical proficiency, the sculpting on these models compares very favorably to most of what's currently available from other companies.Now, for painting and such - it's not necessarily for everybody, but it's for a lot more people than think it's for them. I've had a lot of people tell me they don't think they have the patience, or the skill, or their hands are too shaky, or whatever, but take it from a complete stranger on the internet who claims to know what he's talking about - it's all smoke and mirrors. I have very shaky hands, certainly not much skill, and I only started seriously painting about a year ago, so I don't have a ton of experience, and yet this is my most recent Warhammer project:There's a few very simple techniques you can learn from anyone who knows what they're doing, and/or from online tutorials that can get you going with a bare minimum of trial and error. Of course, as with all things, there's no substitute for experience, but the only way to get that is just to dive in.
