A Conan moment:

Apparently, some study came out by a economic think-tank that twenty-somethings will likely be retiring 12 years later than their parents.

When told this, several twenty-somethings responded, "Retire from WHAT?"

I've been thinking of getting back into the hobby and have my brother send down my IG army and repaint them.  Kind of want to go along this route:


also I have a rare female commissar model in that group. They all needed to be stripped of paint and repainted.  Wouldn't mind mixing old and new Cadian models and say they are part of Lord Solar Marcharius's 1st army.


I like the SoB but the models are so old and static that I may just grab a couple of them for GK's inquisitorial henchmen

Do it dude, IG have some nice lists right now and all the tanks we have (I run Sisters, IG, and Sphess Mehreens), mixed with the stupidly good (and cheap) flyers we can put on the table = Delicious meta pounding cheese.

Which remains one issue for my girls, lack of reliable AA.

? y'mean LACK of reliable AAA ?

I would think that TERMINATOR units would be perfect for AAA units.
with a backpack Quad mount of AA missiles and a pair of mid-caliber miniguns...
you would end up with a unit akin to the current AVENGER AAA HumVee.

Yeah I still have their codex on army builder and play around with army lists from time to time.  What kind of guard do you have?

Figure I make the old cadians into Merican Fusiliers, new cadians the Donian Imperial Guard, karskins vets as cadians.  Kind of want to have a 3rd infantry company but not sure what to model them after from Macharius's 1st army group.  The hard part will be finding a regimental standard for the old cadians to use for that company.  not to mention coming up with 9 unique commissars all with pistols and power weapons.  Would be cool to get some cadet caps like in the pictures I posted to put on some models.  the closet thing I can find are some of my old last chancer models.

My lists look like this:
1-2 Mech Vet platoons (with attendant special weapons, mostly MELTA!)
Mix of normal Guardsmen with attached heavy weapons (you there! What are you doing to destroy the Xenos? Nothing! *blam* now you two take this las cannon and go with them)
Then a few Leman Russ, some Sentinals (lots of Autocannons), occasionally a Basilisk.
What I want to finish the unit out is 1-2 Hellhounds, 1 Manticore and a Valkyrie Vendetta.

I have no idea when I'm going to get to that though.

Probably never >.>;

I'd ideally like to have 3 companies  with 3 infantry squads and one heavy weapon squad for each.  One company will have a special weapon squad with snipers in it.  A squad of vets with bastonee flying in with a valkarie, 3 leman russ tanks and a command squad.  Some armored sentinels would be sweet too, and maybe 3 more valks to bring in a whole company.

I love commissars so each squad would get their own.

My internet is being dumb and won't load Google so I can double check but I believe that would be shonen-ai ("boy love"), like shojo-ai (for "girl-love"), which is basically equivalent up to PG-13 cutesy romance such. Yaoi and Yuri is outright erotica/porn. Maybe I'm wrong but I think it's mass wrong interpretation of the term. Like people saying they "gauge" their ears when they mean stretching or are referring to plugs.

when I googled it, it had said it was boy love, and mentioned both cutesy romance and the erotica.

Comrade report for tank identification training at your local brigade command center. The above vehicle is an IS (Iosef Stalin)-2 Heavy tank, a vital tool in the Soviet Guards division's task of crushing the Hitlerites!

It's to the side, rotated and not outlined so I really don't get the hate. It's the large outlined text at the top and bottom that draws the eye, followed by the dog in the photo. After that, I'd probably have scrolled on before even seeing it.

You'll have to forgive me tngzh. I thought the "inverted wok" turrets were more modern than the Great Patriotic War. To the front!

Tovarish, for your future information in the defense of the State and our glorious revolutions. Please take note of the following information as it was vital to the crushing of the hitlerites during the Great Patriotic War, and resulted in the destruction of many thousands of their hated "Tiger" "Panther" and "King Tiger" tanks. The IS-2 was developed after the Battle of Kursk when the current KV series of tanks primary weapon systems proved to be no match for newly fielded Panzer Mk V and Mk VI's heavy armor. The Boss in his wisdom ordered immediate research into a new heavy tank to replace the KV line. Object 287 was based off the stop gap KV-85 design, and accepted into Red Army service as the IS-I in the fall of 1943. It was only in Soviet service long enough for the Iosef Stalin 2 to finish it's design phase and testing. With sloped heavy armor, and a 122mm main weapon capable of piercing 160mm of armor. It's high explosive shells also made for an excellent break through weapon as the IS-2 showed at the fall of Berlin. It is with the IS-2 that we see the starts of the "Inverted Wok" design. but with a much stronger forward bow section of the turret for the mount of the main cannon. The lines for that can be seen in the drawn image, but would be hard for the unfamiliar to catch. It is the opinion of this expert that the artist in question is a dog of the west who did not pay much attention to the stowage common to the vehicles of the Red Army of the time period. The spare fuel tank mounting is common for T-55s and T-54s in service in the Middle East with Soviet allies such as Syria and the United Arab Republic while the tank is clearly not one of these vehicles. At worst (on my part) it is an IS-3, the successor to the IS-2 that had a much more rounded turret (and truly ingrained that style into Soviet tank design).

Really Lee? You're gonna try to say that tops out like any of the songs from Lion King? (either of them)

Hell Zira might actually top Scar for pure EVIL. Even as far as her villain song goes. I mean sure Scar turned a bunch of mangy poachers into the Savannah's Third Reich, but power hungry and evil aren't necessarily the same thing as evil... and Zira's just... bloody.

And now, Sir Elton John. It's perfectly okay to sing along.


For recent Disney, it's still hard to top Tangled.

Double posting cause y'all are slow and I am drunk.

Meanwhile in the JSDF....



What I want to know is if she's the crew chief or one of the pilots.

Apparently, she's a radio operator.

Its possible there are four sisters to match up with the four aspect of the Fourth Anti-Tank Helicopter Squad. The eldest and second sisters are pilots, and the third sister is a radio operator.
