So how are folks handing the WYSIWYG Extra Armour upgrade for the tourney? Lots of gluing on plasticard and such or just a simple heads up to your opponent?

For Rhinos? It's called look at my sheet and see I paid for the points....it's on the inside......LOL


It's just like having reinforced hulls in modern warefare. I don't think we need to model it. Just have it bought and paid for.

My Techpriests are the snizzshit. They make Extra armor look like regular armor.

It does raise a valid argument though CJ, a lot of players model it.

I have seen people at GT's not model it though, just have never played against anyone that has had to clarify it.

I don't really mind either way.

If it is an issue at the start of the tourney I will have little stickys that can say extra armor if someone is so inclined...
But Personally make sure it is on th elist highlighted or bolded please.

Ha ha I totally agree with CJ. I have never had an issue with modeling extra armour, or heard of one at a tournament. Most players realize that it doesnt exactly come with a bit and requires some modeling ability that you may or may not have.

yea, it shouldn't be a problem. I think as long as the opponent was made aware of the vehicle having the upgrade before the battle starts then things should be fine.

Good lord that costs money! rabbit

Had considered glueing bits of thin cardboard for track guards. The drive was more intensive in WFB with barding for mounts. Personally I'd go with the no-biggie you brought up.

While GW is WYSIWYG, there are some things that are almost impossible to make happen without extra funds/talent, which players may or may not have.



Normally, I will just tell my opponent if something is not obviously visable. Like Extra armor, or Barding on Horses. same goes with Weapons. If a Space Marine has a chain sword, and I want to try a power weapon, I will tell my opponent, "Hey, this Sargent has a power weapon, not a chain sword" etc, etc...

if someone is so anal that they say that everything has to be modeled to 100% accuracy, I will gladly allow them to take their money and their time to add extra armor to my models. afro

Easiest way to model extra armor is to use extra tank treads.

just glue and paint right on the model.

easiest, but not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing.
