  1. Your crotch is between your legs, not in your stomach. I think you need to take Biology again.
  2. We already have a model anyway. She's in the Corregidor starter
  3. edit - replying to a post from 10 pages ago isn't a good idea.
  4. I really like Zamira because of her BS 12. I've found Kum are fantastic at getting within Light Shotgun range and around obstacles in few orders to remove cover penalties, and BS 12 means you're hitting on 18's. Even if you don't manage to get around the cover, you're still hitting on 15's. Even a normal Kum with a Light Shotgun can be a beast. If you manage to win those face to face rolls, a Kum can just keep on going. Then, when the rampage is over, it doesn't take many orders to zip them back into total cover. The biggest flaw they have that some other bikers get around is a Specialist option. Would have been nice if one of the twins was a Specialist, maybe even Zamira to give her a bit more of a reason to pick her rather than going right for Zuleyka.
  5. I just painted the Red Veil Khawarij and Tarik. Those circular indents weren't on either boot. Looking at pictures of both, it does not look like their footwear. edit - I did not see the footware on the junk. That indeed looks like a Haqqislam boot bottom. Matches the Khawarij, but also looks like the Zhayedan.
  6. See, I use sand for my bases (Haqqislam after all). Any gaps from the slot just fill with PVA and are hidden by the sand.
  7. That it does. A tab inside the base is far more secure, however. And generally speaking, you're going to place the model along the center line of the base, which is where the slot is anyway.
  8. I was talking about using the standard supplied bases. I get clipping the tabs off for resin base.
  9. I've tried that, but I've found it's again more effort than just using the tab. The pins need something to hold them to have their desired effted, and the thin top layer of the standard plastic bases just doesn't give much hold. You end up needing to either bend the pin and glue it to the underside of the base or use green stuff to reinforce it, after thich more effort has been spent than simply using the central slot and tab.
  10. For the majority of models that's just creating more effort. Not only do you need to clip the tab, but also you need to line up where you cut the slots in the base. If you misalign those, you've got even more work filling the extra gaps you cut before you can get to basing the model. Leaving the tab intact means you can cut the overall slot smaller than you think it is, and then do a series of dry fits and slowly expanding the slot. The only time I'll trim down a large tab is if I need to base it off center, which is more because it's less effort to trim the tan than to cut a larger slot in the thick part of the base.
  11. I do. I base my miniatures on the standard plastic bases, and using the tab and a hole cut in the base is much more secure than clipping the tab off and glueing the mini onto the base by the feet. Very few are positioned so the tab and the slot running up the center of the base won't center the mini on the base, and those that are I just extert a bit more effort to cut the hole outside of the thinner center slot.
  12. I didn't mean this set, but they have in the past. Repacking 4 of the Muyibs into a box counted as a release the month they did it. As long as they do the repacks like this month, separate from the regular releases, I've got no issue with it.
  13. It just bugs me when they count them as part of the months releases. I was also a big fan of dual blisters anyway.
  14. I'd guess we'll see Khawarij and Zhayedan boxes closer to book 3 for their link options.
