Take a look here and scroll down to the 'Bikes' section under "Bikes, Flyers, Vehicles and Walkers".

I put these in as an aid to helping people find what they are after quickly but not many people seem to realise they are there.
Sorry Cypher - i wasn't aware i'm afraid

I usually direct people to the tutorials section but mainly for painting, that is an awesome resource though. i'll be having a good look through later

Cool, spread the word my good man the more people who realise they are there the easier time they will have looking for a tute. I did ask Jez way back to have an announcement put on the front page (when we had it) but he had a lot on his plate at the time so I guess it just got overlooked.

I did put an announcement about it in the Forum Announcements thread but it needs to be stickied.

For example your gun may shoot over top of a friendly unit, but when someone shoots back at you from ground level that unit would almost for sure have their LoS obscured by the same unit that you shot over top.

That being said, sounds like a marvelous solution to the issue that you came up with! It heartens me to hear of simple compromises instead of silly arguments.

BACK to the model though...I bet the gunner marine is glad his boots have magnets in them. Very devil may care/trust in your armour of the dude up top

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Have been told countless times by the kids that the rider needs his helmet or he would go deaf from the heavy bolter or have his hair burnt from the multi-melta! But hey, we're wolfies and bad-ass so we don't notice any of that, right? lol

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!
