Got Dark Heresy, and even played a session of it. Not a bad game - character progression is kind of odd, but the game has OODLES of flavour.

Fred: I'll let you know if I dont manage to trade my Orks in store tomorrow. I'd prefer to trade with someone in the store than over the net, but if I can't I'd be happy to swap all my Orks for your marines in the set.

Just to clarify, I'm buying one set anyway and want the Marines and the Orks - I'm willing to meet up somewhere and split the cost in return for the Orks.

Let me know how you go - I'm back in Canberra this weekend but should be free the following weekend.

Where would I find a GW store or stockist in Melbourne? I was planning on just buying the first set online...

Games Workshop has a store in Melbourne Central too (about 5 mins walk from Mind Games. Double check prices, cause I've found single models are dearer in Mind Games).

There's also a couple of GW stores in various shopping centres around the 'burbs.

Ahh, I'll pass then Fred, I'm looking at doubling up on the Marines rather than selling off my Orks.

GW has a Highpoint store, Melbourne Central and Chadstone store I believe. Mind Games have a Melbourne store and a Brighton store as well.

I noticed the Mind Games store in the city, might check it out next week. I knew the Mind Games in Canberra city stocked GW stuff but I wasn't sure about the other stores in the franchise.

There's a GW in the city too? I'll have to check these out on Monday at lunch time.

I'm not sure where the other suburbs mentioned are yet - I'm still learning my way around the CBD and I work there!

I think the mind games in the city has 10% off GW stuff as well, so probably worth just going to them.

In other news, I've been busy with my Black Reach set, got 1 delivered to work today. The models are fantastic

I thought you guys might like this

It all started on another forum I read where someone was painting a Deathwing army, and used the old brown ink to shade them. Someone commented that it made them look like they had wooden armour, so the Mean Green Tree Marines got started, with lots of little quotes and jokes about them. Then someone painted a marine up as a MGTM.

Glorious.

Some of the quotes that prompted that marine to get painted.

"I couldn't believe it. All my life I had dreamed about joining the Space Marines. I would read all the legendary tales of the Ultramarines, Black Templars, and Iron Fists. So when the day came I bought a ticket to the nearest recruiting chapter I could find on the star maps. It cost me all the money I had to get there, and if I knew then what I know now, I would've used the money to bribe myself into a sweet officer position in the Imperial Guard. God I hate this Chapter"
-Battle Brother Verona Cashmen of the Mean Green Tree Machine Marines

"Well I still have a hard time figuring out why they wanted me to join them Deathwatch fellows, we're not the most impressive of chapters, I gotta admit. But I'll say this; that black paint does wonders for my armor, it's just like varnish I tell ya! By the throne, I think they're proud to have me, I'm always in the front of the formation! And they asked me to blow on this Tanith bagpipe! And they insist I should walk fifteen feet ahead of them, while dancing...
What the hell, I feel special!"
-- Bernard Heine, Battle-Brother of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"I tell ya, the first time out with the Death Watch, I thought for sure they'd make me the point man. I mean, Mall Security Marines? Hell, I'd make me the lead man. But luck was on my side and this guy from the Tree...Green...oh, right, Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines. Yeah, he was assigned to my squad, and the boys gave him this bag pipe. The idiot was so happy as can be, I couldn't believe it! Thank the emperor, he didn't get more than a scratch, so I was never given the "honor" of taking point during my tour."
-- Joe Kowalski, Battle-Brother of the Emperor's Mall Security Marines

Anyone picked up the latest White Dwarf? Got an Ork and a Space Marine Terminator on it.

If that's the build quality on the boxset, I'm mightily impressed.

I remember the 2nd ed boxset and the Orks in that. This is eleventy million times better.

And the Terminator's not bad either, 40MM base, poseable arms...pretty impressive.

And inside the back cover, there's a pic of a space marine battleforce...but there's what look to be some mobile artilery...can't tell what it is, but it's on tracks...not sure. Anyone remember the old Space Crusade tarantulas? Maybe like that?

Was thinking of those the other day - iirc, I was thinking "Thank fuck we dont have them any more" - Wish I still had the three rulebooks still though

Didnt mind the Space Marines though - Easy to build, and made a good display army with everyone standing to attention

"I hate being a dreadnought made of wood. I have splinters in my stumps."
-- Charles "Charbroil Chuck" Lombardi, former Battle-Brother of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines and latest dreadnought

"The Great Oaken Fist of the Emperor's Imperial Wrath"

And after the battle...

"The Pile of Ashes of the Emperor's Inflammable Wrath"

"Why, in the name of the Emperor, did we decide to make most of our vehicles out of wood too? The wood armor thing works as a symbol, I suppose, since I've heard of Sororitas wearing naught but scripture to protect them, but even they travel in metal vehicles. Emperor's codpiece, we don't even use real wood for our vehicles most of the time! It's just fiberboard! The Adeptus Mechanicus must have something against us or something, I don't know, but the first chance I get I'm hopping on a supply ship and getting my splintered superhuman ass out of here."
-- Carlos Roberto "Lumberjack" Gonzalez, Techmarine of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"We've deforested about four worlds in as many years trying to keep our men outfitted. I think it may be time to give in to the modern age and start using metal for our suits and equipment. Besides, I'm pretty sure our Primarch was just kidding about the whole 'wooden power-armor' thing, and I think he was pretty intoxicated when he was talking to the Adeptus Mechanicus."
-- Battle-Brother Samuel S. Samson just before being "purged" for heresy toward the Chapter.

"[...]and that's when I told the Magos-Mechanicus to fuck off. 'We don't need any Emperor-damned titans,' I said to him, 'my men are strong enough to fight the enemy with nothing but sticks and twigs.' After that he just sorta shrugged and went off back to Mars or where ever. Since then they've been making our vehicles out of plywood and scrap--but hey, we're the MGTM marines. We'll manage. Still, I oughtta lay off the whiskey during these official meeting things."
-- Grizzo Adamus, Primarch of Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"We've just been flushing their genetic tithes. Fuck those tree-huggers, I hope the tyranids eat every last on of them. 'Om nom nom nom!' Heh. Yeah."
-- the current Magos-Mechanicus of Mars

"My greatest triumph? Taking down half a dozen Dark Eldar warriors in the trenches of Xalal III. Fucking xenos were laughing their asses off as they saw me approach, they opened fire, nothing happened. They fired again, nothing. They fire again, I draw my leafy branch and thresh the living fuck out of them, one by one. Splinter rifles don't do FUCK against armour made of splinters. Praise be to the Emperor."
Brother-Sergeant Hastur of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"Splinters and it freezing, I really hate this chapter."

"Yes, my power armor is made of wood. No, it is not bulletproof. Yes, I have splinters in my crotch. We didn't even bother to carve armor for our terminator squads--they're just wearing hollowed-out redwoods. Our Dreadnoughts are just crippled guys buried in lumber piles. I hate my chapter."
-- Battle-Brother Hadrian Scott of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"I hate this shit so much I tried to turn to the dark gods, yeah well they called me a faggot hippie. Seriously, fuck this grim, dark future. Fuck it bad."
-- Battle-Brother Hadrian Scott of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"You think you have it so bad? At least you have superhuman implants as well as power armor, even if it is made of wood. We, on the other hand, are outfitted in brightly-colored combat fatigues and giant badly-painted anime girl helmets. You don't even have to watch Naruto reruns during 'tactic briefings'."
-- Carl "Mariko" Szominivich of the Desu Squadron

"I know. I know I'm not exactly equipped for this after my gene therapy and transformative marinisation... but would you... would like to maybe go out on a date with me sometime? I mean. If you're not too busy..."
-- Battle-Brother Hadrian Scott of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"This one time our company was fighting off an Ork attack, when this one greenskin showed up with a fucking wood chipper strapped to his back! He grabbed a few of my battle brothers and tossed them right into the thing, there was nothing but blood and splinters when they came out the other end. Seriously, why the fuck is our power armor made out of wood? I hate this chapter."
--Battle-Brother Hadrian Scott of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines


"Not only are they whiny bark-covered little bitchmen, the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines are also pretty gay. And rice-queens to boot."
-- Carl "Mariko" Szominivich

"Just as planned."
-- Tzeentch

"HAHAHAHAHAH FAG"
-- Slaanesh

"Blood blood blood BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD SKULLS BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD fag BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD SKULLS BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD"
-- Khorn

"I didn't mind those tree-marines much--I could see doing something nice with that wooden armor. I mean, c'mon, woodrot and termites! How would that not be a Nurglesque thing, huh? And when one goes down we'll just burn him and roast marshmallows on his corpse for the children to enjoy. Mmm... marshmallows. Hey! Someone get me some marshmallows! Bags of them! And some Cheetos!"
-- Papa Nurgle

"How come all my men are turning gay? Really, this is getting out of hand. I swear to the Emperor that if this shit doesn't stop, I'm going to personally stomp on each and every fucking gene-seed we have in the vault. Now enough of this nonsense, I have to get to my LARP meeting."
-- Chapter-Leader Zygand "Archdruid" Stanhope (pictured below in full wargear/LARP regalia)

"I just did it as joke. How was I supposed to know they would take wooden power armor seriously?"
-Grizzo Adamus-Primarch of Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"How the fuck does it even work anyway? It's made of wood! I usually just slap some varnish on there and hope to the Emperor nobody notices. So far, nobody has."
-- Carlos Roberto "Lumberjack" Gonzalez, Techmarine of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"And now that I think of it, why the fuck did that ork have a woodchipper strapped to his back anyway? They didn't know we specifically were going to come! They knew some marines were going to respond to the attack, that's a given, but there's no possible way they could have predicted us, the only Chapter to wear armor made of wood, would be there! Their 'Weirdboyz' must have psychic powers nearly on par with the blessed and almighty Emperor!"
-- Battle-Brother Hadrian Scott of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines before his untimely death due to "bolter misfire."

"Sumfin' in me 'ead told me dat dis choppy-fing on me back'd come in right 'andy someday. Out of all da hunnertz o' fightz I been in, it only 'appened once."
-- Dardrok Woodchoppa

"I know they're technically on our side, being loyal to the Emperor and all, but there's something viscerally satisfying and hilariously ironic about hacking at one of 'em with a chainsword. And when the poor bastard comes down, you can't help but yell 'TIMBERRRRRR'!"
-- Ivarr Heimdall of the Space Wolves

"Oh, oh man, that reminds me of this one fight--it was a big 'un, loads and loads of orks, a veritable WAAAGH! by itself, and about a hundred of my fellow Space Wolves locked in battle with them when a dropship--made of wood, of course--hit the ground, killing about half of the poor fucks inside. The survivors crawl out of the fiercely-burning wreckage, pick up their bolters--surprisingly made of metal, though they were prone to locking up due to the sawdust inside them--and start firing away. The orks noticed that they were wearing clumsily-carved wooden armor and they just tossed aside their guns and went straight for their choppas. By this time, we'd stopped fighting since we were too busy laughing at the Mean Greens getting mowed down--Oh Emperor, did I just say mowed down? HAHAHAHA!--anyway, we were too busy laughing at them getting mowed down to help. Eventually the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines won the day, but with massive losses and more than a few fatally-infected splinters. We were grateful for the assistance, but... well, I'm not too proud of what we did next, but the orks made it look so fun to hack at these guys that we just whipped out our chainswords and went to town on them. By the end of the day we were all covered in gore and wood chips. I yelled 'CALL ME PAUL MOTHERFUCKING BUNYAN' at the top of my lungs until my throat was sore. Ha, that was an awesome fucking day."
-- Ivarr Heimdall of the Space Wolves

"I'm not even really affiliated with the Adeptus Mechanicus--I'm just some guy they hired from Homeworld Depot's parking lot. They asked if I was good working with trees, so I assumed they'd have me do some landscaping. Instead, they stick me inside this itchy, cumbersome wooden armor and have me cut down tree after tree to carve up. I swear to the Emperor that if this keeps up I'm going back to Hondurasia IV. No green card is worth this nonsense."
-- Carlos Roberto "Lumberjack" Gonzalez, Techmarine of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines and former gardener

"Honestly, this chapter wasn't my first choice. I wanted to be a Crimson Fist Marine, but I got kicked out when I accidentally screamed 'Emperor's Cock' when I took a bolter wound during training. The company Chaplain didn't take too kindly too that. He said I would never be a Space Marine. Well look at me now Chaplain Verros, I'm a fucking Chapter Master!" <goes back to belt sanding a wooden power armor chest plate>

CODE: VERMILION
OFFICIAL ORDOS HERETICUS COMMUNIQUE
936.M41

Inquisitor,
We encountered that Chapter again. We were completing our investigations on Lycea V when agents of the Ruinous Powers became aware of our presence. After braving many ambushes from cadres of Chaos cultists, our astropath felt a fell presence fall over the planet.
You remember Carol, right? Our new astropath? Shes a monster bitch (even with the drugs) but shes generally pretty accurate. Anyhow, I digress. The fell presence turned out to be a Traitor splinter fleet from some bullshit failed Chaos venture. The battle for the very soul of Lycea V was being lost and all hopes of victory were torn from our hearts when we receieved a message from the Emperor's wrath personified, the Adeptus Astartes!
Was it from the relentless crusaders of the Black Templars?
Of course not.
The heroic Ultramarines?
Nope.
The ambiguously gay Rainbow Warriors?
Negative.
For we had received a message from Brother-Captain Erik Bough of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines and his complement of Battle Brothers aboard their battlebarge Deciduous Wrath. All hope was again lost.
Apparently however, the cedar in some of their armor drove back some of the Plague God's followers wile the servants of the Lord/Lordess of Pleasure found the Marines too splintery to properly rapekill. Still, we were far up shitcreek and the losses kept mounting. The end, we asssume, came when the tried to deepstrike in amongst the enemy. Pine drop pods are the dumbest fucking idea ever.
Our salvation came at the hands of a intervening Dark Angels force. On that note, my suspicions of Chapter-Master Azrael grow deeper. I think he is really into that "Caliban" thing. You know the cocaine use and closeted homosexuality. That "Csliban" thing.

Seriously, can we not call an Exterminatus on those Emperor-damned hippie tree-armored faggots?

Truly,
Interrogator Bryce

++++END TRANSMISSION++++

"And so there we were, stuck in the middle of a battlefield and beset on all sides by orks. We were nearly out of ammo and we were all grievously wounded. A routine check of Corolis IV revealed that the ork population had grown and we were asked to take it down a notch--little did we know that the green-skinned bastards had been waiting for us. When we touched down, they instantly set upon us, rough-shod weapons of all shapes and sizes were all brought to bear in one vicious surprise assault. It looked as if we were well and truly doomed.

"At least, it appeared that way until the objects began raining from the sky in dramatic flashes of flame, landing amidst the orkish forces and scattering them just enough for us to mount an assault of our own. The orks, surprised and shaken by the sudden rain of, judging by the smoking remains in the craters, old wooden crates full of broken servitors were easily split up into smaller groups and eliminated.

"We assume that an Adeptus Mechanicus freighter accidentally jettisoned its cargo onto the battlefield. In any case, we were extremely grateful for this sudden burst of luck.

"No. This was not luck. This was nothing short of the Emperor's Will. There are no coincidences when He is involved."
-- Battle-Brother Luke Archais of the Crimson Fists

"Why are our drop-pods made of wood? I'm going to miss Mike, Ronny, Kenny, Steve, Bob, Mango Max, fat Steve, black Ronny, and Kembo. Especially Kembo. Sigh."
-- Brother-Captain Xerxes Von Waddleheimer of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"Barrel of a Leman Russ tank? Check. An Imperial Guardsman's gaping head wound? Check. Dark Eldar's eye socket? Check times two. Mean Green Tree-Machine Marine? Ah, fuck no! Splinters fucking sting!"
-- Wally "Powercock Nine-Thousand" Bruster, Battle-Brother/Sister of the Emperor's Children

"So there we were, waiting outside of an ork compound. We were silent--silent as trees, one might say--and we waited with the patience of the Great Forest itself. Despite the inferior quality of our armor and weaponry--they're made of wood, in case you'd forgotten and failed to notice the warp-damned robin's nest in my left shoulderpad--I knew we would win the day. A quick kill, an easy victory to our credit, and maybe even some credibility with our fellow Chapters.

"It was not to be, however, for as soon as we began the assault, dozens of drop pods landed about us. They opened up and a veritable flood of screaming, sweaty, vulgar, angry Astartes rushed out screaming at the top of their lungs at the fortress. The orks had awakened by the uncouth oaths being screamed in their direction and were picking Marines off left and right, both the unwelcome newcomers and my fellow Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines. It was a massacre.

"The Angry Marines--usually so well-regarded if not well-liked by their peers--had proven themselves to be a liability in this particular siege. In fact, their entire party had died, their holy gene-seeds going to waste. We, however, managed to survive due to a combination of our natural woodland stealth and the orks' inability to aim. Apparently bright yellow and red armor makes poor camouflage, though it makes up for this by being exceedingly easy to spot and shoot at by even the least skilled of aggressors.

"After some minor repairs to our gear--sanding, nails, some wood putty, and more than a little papier-mâché--we were able to attack the orks again, with better results. It was still a massacre, but at least we didn't have to worry about a load of screaming sociopaths with anger management issues shooting us as well as the comparatively more well-adjusted orks. When we died, it was due to our own shoddy gear and not because Battle-Brother Lenoidas VII is too occupied with screaming four-lettered words whilst firing his bolter to bother aiming at the enemy.

"Indeed, being a Mean Green Tree-Machine Marine has its downfalls... but I am proud. We are proud. Our record may not be a solid string of successes, or may even have any true successes, but at least we're not morons."
--Battle-Brother Charles Minkstenburgh of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"OKAY, WHAT THE FUCK. THEY CALLED US FUCKING STUPID? THOSE FUCKING FUCKERS DIDN'T EVEN FUCKING REALIZE WE WERE ON A DESERT WORLD. THEY WEREN'T BEING STEALTHY AND THEY WEREN'T USING ANY FUCKING CAMO, THE FUCKING GREENSKIN SHITFUCKING FUCKERS WERE TOO BUSY LAUGHING THEIR CUNTSHITTING FUCKING ASSES OFF AT THE FUCKING TREE-FUCKING MARINES. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK THEM AND THEIR FUCKING TREE-ARMOR! AND WE DIDN'T COLLECT THOSE FUCKING FALLEN GENE-SEEDS BECAUSE THE GUYS THAT DIED WERE FUCKING FAGS AND WE DON'T WANT THEIR FUCKING SHITTY GENETICS FUCKING UP OUR FUCKING CHAPTER. NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP, I HAVE TO USE THE FUCKING CAN. WE NEED SOME FUCKING PLASMA GRENADES AND I GOTTA FUCKING SHIT. FUCK!"
--Battle-Fucking-Brother Murderfist Facefucker of the Angry Marines

"We had an entire squad wiped out by a single Eldar Fire Dragon. The name should have tipped us off, really."
--Battle-Brother Gregori "Crispy" Moses of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines

"We fought an ork burnaboy last week. He didn't even have to use his flamer. He just threw his lit cigar at us and laughed as we went up in flames. Dammit, I told them we should have let the varnish dry first! I told them and they didn't listen and now I'm the only one left!"
--Battle-Brother Wallace Barnaby Louis of the Mean Green Tree-Machine Marines, crying into a wooden mug of maple syrup

"You think you fucking Mean Green faggots have it so bad with your wooden armor? At least you can move in yours! Our armor is made of iron plates covered in hundreds of pounds of reinforced rockcrete! And there aren't any fucking pneumatics either--everything is muscle-powered! So fuck you and your splintery asses! OUR ARMOR IS MADE OF ROCKCRETE! I can't even fucking move, fuck!"
--Battle-Brother Kevin Shizbang of the Stone Warriors

"So, like, we just standing there, man. Shit was goin' down with those green dudes and we wasn't doin' nothin', man. Our Battle-Brohams were totally getting shot, but, like, from where we was it looked wicked fucking awesome. Yeah, we woulda been dead if it weren't for those other marine dudes pulling us away. Heh, Rob totally tried to set one of 'em on fire with his flamer, dude."
