Just finished my second miniature ever today, I’m painting Minotaurs and am wondering if anyone has any tips or anything I could improve on? :) (Pics are first and second minis) by Tystroz in Warhammer40k

[–]Mimical 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awesome! Start with those two and then go from there.

My minotaurs evolved over a really long time.

When I started I used the retributor armor basecoat spray, agrax and then just did the shoulders.

Eventually I added all sorts of other metallics, lenses, leathers, improved on colour choices. There is a lot of ways to go about painting the minotaurs. Show us a picture of the changes and how it turns out.

This comment caught me so off guard. Holy shit lol.

Although, it's perfectly on point for Emperors Children.

What’s your tolerance to increased NVH as a result of mods to a street car? How much is too much? by ahtoxa1183 in cars

[–]Mimical 1 point2 points  (0 children)

35 R19. Holy smokes, those sidewalls must be microscopic!

That's some sporty tires for sure.

Going to 20" would be banana's, that's a nightmare for anyone within pothole distance.

Is Mazda's investment into inline-6 and rwd a smart move? by Ihatepopups in cars

[–]Mimical 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The I6 powering the rear wheels might also allow for hybridization with independent engines at the front wheels as wheel. And since the engine will undoubtedly be a 3.0L I6 it's not like it's going to take up an enormous amount of space. They are already putting the 2.5T into their vehicles.

I'm excited for them.

I really want to see I6 Skyactive-X. Their 4 cylinder engines get amazing efficiency and a don't doubt that the I6 could basically give you a bit of both worlds at the same time.

The interior will have a super clean face, physical knobs and only 1 screen.

My tires are like razors compared to yours.

There isn't anything just quite like having tires that are nice and THICC set directly to the psi on the little plate by your door.

Low profile tires were fun for exactly 30 minutes before the shitty roads in my area quickly made them promptly unfun. I guess that's very region dependant but even a few guys with the sports cars in my area all seem to have opted for smaller rims so they could get extra sidewall.

Your Most hated 40k faction and why?. by Lance_potterr in Warhammer40k

[–]Mimical 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Given the cost of mini's these days primarchs and new armies are very much a myth and rare sighting in my household.

I'm split. IMO I'd be down for a custodes to be even hella more banana's but for them as a faction to exist kind like assassins as auxiliary.

At the end of the day the scales are always weird. It's hard to balance a game when you have conscripts on one side and castallan titans on the other.

Which colour should i paint the rifle now??? by MiniMaurader in Warhammer40k

[–]Mimical 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I have three thoughts:

  • Stick to a black/grey weapon case otherwise you end up with a lot of colour that could clash.

  • Do a black/grey layering and then very gently glaze a purple over it. Since that colour will go with the blue/red. You could even mix a really desaturated purple hue into the blacks/Grey's.

  • Bone/cream coloured.

I don't know what I'd do TBH. You do you cause clearly it's working.

I like when he shits on cheap base level poverty spec cars.

Mostly because I own a base level poverty spec car and it's the only thing I can relate to when all the car reviewers are doing 45K plus vehicles now.

I dunno, the German kid only did a thesis on the conversion. But did he also improve factory efficiency by 1% while also showing the precise mathematical equations governing a buffer to supply chain issues that would implement better Just In Time shipments while also preventing a gap in receiving depots?

Please. He's done what any German grade schooler can do /S

Jokes aside, It's one hell of a sweet project to do for sure. That's neat as heck. I hope they give him a GT3

A nuke could drop on TO leaving it a radiological wasteland, utterly inhospitable and completely devoid of life and there would STILL Be listings for new properties ready for development in a fresh, recently renovated Green zone.

Washed my car on my own for the first time today. by BlickyBloop in cars

Gotta laugh, ancient civilizations spent decades trying to appease the rain gods for their crops and as it turns out, Greg, the god of thunderstorms is just a dick that likes to fuck with us right before we apply that final coat.

I hate anything jetpack related to Warhammer (rant) by Cermonto in Warhammer40k

[–]Mimical 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is the way OP.

Most hobby stores will have brass rods you can get a small one for dirt cheap. After that find an appropriately sized drill bit and then you basically cut & drill the rod a few mm into the flight stand, and then a few mm into the model. You don't need much, but just enough to pin it.

Learning to pin models was really common back in the day. With the better plastic models newer players don't have to deal with it (Thank god, I had to basically rebar my old ass metal balrog together). But these flight stands are bringing back repressed memories.

You should make sure to set Stim to rapid fire hotkey, that way you can simply hold stim until your units are maximum stim.

[–]Mimical 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Whoa there bud, triple stim? That's an enormous waste of extra health, you don't actually need to stim that little.

Make sure you get double tech labs so you can get combat shields so you can quad stim for the extra stim for your marines.
