Wow, no way I'm ever using photo bucket again.  Sorry to see the loss of so many pictures of your efforts on this thread. :icon_sad:

They recommended to me that I log out of the website, clear all the cookies and cache from Chrome, and then log back in. It's not entirely fixed but I can access all my pictures and my links still work ( I can't save anything I've edited though ).

PB support are getting back to me but it takes days because they are getting so many queries I think.

Not sure if this will help. I use Wordpress and access to the pictures became extremely slow, then older pics wouldn’t expand out of thumbnail, then the whole catalogue vanished. Then I logged out, which I hadn’t ever done (couple years?) and logged back in and everything came back. Kind of stupid of me but there you go. I was ready to delete the whole site out of frustration but I’m glad I didn’t.

At least now the site says my account is one of the last affected by a power outage , and will be back up soon!
Phew.

On another note, I went into a GW Store, to buy some of the new contrast paints.

The girl managing asked me what i'm working on, I said metal models, old school...

She was young , and laughed , then started telling me why plastic was infinitely better as a medium , for detail and ease of painting , etc etc...

I waited as she kept talking then i gave her my sixpence,

lol

- i said something like - yep all true, but metal feels valuable and worthy when you pick up a model, and the fact that it's harder to convert makes it more exciting when you manage to do so, plus it's nice using gloss and matt varnishes, and i simply don't like these new Sig Marine plastic throwaway kids toys GW are running with, bye

Why is this consistently the GW experience for the past 2 decades at least? You might get the odd normal person but they never last long because they dont drink the cool-ade the rest of them are...

PB still down guys!!

Ok i'll give you a sneak preview description,

I started painting the best Empire metal model of all time, it's the puff and slash , Landschnecht style guy.. then realised how it would be awesome to convert a load of similar style models , various metal sculpts , to all have halberds,

i'm 8 models into a unique metal only, heavy puff and slash elite guard unit , using a new colour scheme , it rocks , i need to post

Surely you mean ‘war wagon crew’ rather than conversions...

Yep - the 3rd from left reminded me of the old Pegasus Knight with the long lance - the head has been altered though - the helmet I think?

I have to agree that the best Empire model would be the Averland with halberd from Mordheim. That set of models is something I wish I had bought more than just the basic set. Heck if I could afford them I'd buy enough of the Halberds for two units! On your issue with GW stores, I've tried to avoid them recently as I don't care for any of their current games with the exception of 30k. I play older editions and it always angers the newer employees that they really don't have anything other than paint that I want. I've met some great paint sellers though.
I may disagree with what you say but I respect your right to be punished for it.
