Building 16k Deciding on Centigors

If you have not read the rest of this diary you might want to start at the beginning.  When I started building my 16000 point army I knew there would be some challenges. The most obvious challenge is money. I have been looking for ways to curb the cost of this monster for some time now. One of these ideas is to use proxy models when ever I get the chance. I will only do this for the models beyond that of a standard game (3000 points).

Looking at my army I have a need for about two hundred Centigors. Games Workshop charges about 12.00 a piece. That is just way too much money. I guess that leaves me with two options. One is to sculpt them all myself, or make a master mold. The other seems to be converting them. Both the options will take a considerable amount of time and both seem daunting.

About two years ago I started looking for a cost efficient model to convert. I was at a loss and had given up. Then GW came out with the Island of Blood starter set. It contains Elyrian Reavers. A very inexpensive model. You can get 5 on eBay for like 5 dollars shipped. Yes, I had decided it was time to start converting.

Now, that I had chosen the base model for my Centigors, I needed the rest of the pieces parts. You can get everything you need out of the Gors box set. Or if you are cheap, like me, you can find everything on eBay to make five Centigors for under 10.00. Yep, that’s right five 12.00 figs for only 10.00.

Next time around I will either post my how to make the Centigor from a a reaver or I will post some pics of the one I have finished. I am still deciding if this should be a video, written instructions, or both.

All right in this Box Breaking we have the Beginner Box set for Pathfinder from Paizo Publishing.  If you are thinking about playing Pathfinder RPG this might just be the thing you need to watch.

 

I ahve waited to delve into Pathfinder RPG for oh about a year.  This box set will give me that opportunity.

If you check back in a day or so we will have a character creation video using this box set.

Wizard and  Fantasy Wizard are the ultimate games of trump.  If you like Pinocle this might just be your next card game.  This video gives you a product overview.

 

In a few days we should have a game demo up for you to see.

Two things to note.  One in Fantasy Wizard, we mention the Joker.  It should be the Jester and it is important.   Also I can’t type The games are from U.S. Games Systems, Inc.  It might take me a day or so to figure out how to edit it.  Sorry about the mistakes.

Figure Forge: Building the Necron Command Barge

In this episode of Figure Forge Danny Assembles the Necron Command and Annihilation Barge.  He uses rare earth magnets to show you how easy it is to have both models for a little bit more than the price of one.

 

Warning this model contains small parts and therefore is a little complicated. It is a long video.   You should also note that Danny is an expert at gluing his fingers together – you are not.

 

I suggest getting a soda and some popcorn.

 

Well we learned a lot from this one.  In the future we will do large models in at least two parts.
