Seems we are getting six factions at launch: Kislev, Cathay and four chaos factions each focused on the different chaos gods.

Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

A Doomsphere is not a nuclear device, because nuclear devices have no place in proper fantasy wargaming. Skavens do not nuke targets. Any similarities with actual real world atomic weapons of mass destruction are entirely coincidental.

I have finished the first of my Fangmora Eelkin. This was certainly one of my riskier conversions, as I was not sure if it would work out - and I am not sure if it has! I gave a lot of thought to how I would convert them, and initially I was planning just to swap out the heads as I did with the thralls. However, I wanted them to be distinct, and could not find suitable heads to use. Then I had the idea that, being 'nobles', they were at a far further along stage of the process, and this was the (un)natural result.

I like it, well done!

Though it is a bit dark in terms of colour, maybe a few parts could be highlighted a bit more to attract the eye? Maybe some of the finns or parts of the armour.

I tried to blend from dark blue along the spine to pale green along the belly, meaning the brighter part is not particularly visible. Fortunately, I still have the other two to paint, so I can look into improvements like that for them. Danke :)

So I've just been thinking- why haven't the Tyranids evolved spiders yet?

Surely they must have eaten trillions of spiders by now, you'd think at least one norn queen would take note and use the design, tactics and abilities that these creatures confer. And we have hard proof that they exist in 40k, so it's not like they just aren't eating them.

I assume an 8 legged creature would be inefficient in a chaotic battlefield. Just more limbs to be injured.
