    New Chapter status?

    The current cover. Next month is some other anime female character.
  2. FYI this is what a palette pad is. This is great for quick uses, but as the guy starts off with that is a palette for mixing paint. The technique in the though allows your paint and more importantly you newly mixed paint and colour to last a lot longer.
  3. Years before I was interested in Guyver, way back in 1990 I fell for a board game called Space Crusade! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Crusade This game was my introduction to the Space Marines and and the lore around them. I would go on to buy the Expansions A friend of mine at the time explained that this game was part of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and I'd go on to star collecting a magazine called White Dwarf which would give me the rules to expand the miniature range in the game. This is a picture of my bad guys from Space Crusade army at the bottom and my Epic 40K Army above from way back in 1993. All of the minitures were hand painted by me back in the day. It was just earlier in the year I'd in fact learned about Guyver at of all places a Star Trek convention 5 years later I was living in Wales. While there I met the person who would go on to make TheGuyver.Net and Japan-Legend.com at a local comic store were we would chat about Guyver. It was there I picked up some resin kits. The skills I learned from painting miniatures would lead on to me painting these two Guyvers: So to me there has always being a connection between my ability to paint minutes and Guyver. They though were the last things I ever painted. I moved back to Ireland in 1997. I found this picture of me from 2001. At the time I was living in a flat in Dublin where I worked and went back to College (at the time in this picture I was a year into my degree). The funny thing is it's of me working on a Guyver picture for Warrior Guyver and in the left side of the picture you can see unfinished Resin kits..... I would move house / flat 10+ times until 2011 when I eventually got the place I now call home a house that is mine (well 70% the banks! ) It was here I eventually finally unpacked all the boxes that traveled with me over the years. In one of them I found these wonderful things: It was the first time in 10 odd years they'd seen the light of day. So what does that mean now..... Continued on my next post as I think this one will reach it's upload limit
  4. Found a great video this morning while looking for details on Palettes and more importantly not wasting money: I also like the more reusable nature of this vs a disposable plastic palette. This is something I never used properly as a kid, I mixed paints usually in the paint bottle they came in when they got 1/4 the way to empty.... To making a palette is important to me as I want that smooth finish and this wet method is even more important as it cuts down wastage.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Happy Christmas!!!
  6. alkanfel009 this is more along what I was thinking: Looking at this I really want 1 to lead my 40K army!!!! It's made by: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MiniaturesPit?fbclid=IwAR1eYylD7Rn-IU6yPsiFKskSeNb53N72Ap9GHhs4VlEvwd9VRmOk0oAwNcE
  7. About 3 years ago I tried to restart the hobby I ended up buying a bunch of miniatures paints and other stuff but got nowhere with it. The stuff stayed in bags behind my lazy boy, between working 12 hour days in Dublin and the costs of trying to get things together I gave up on the idea even more so after losing the job I had for 9 years.... So there I was happy enough with my stuff the way it was. For me miniatures hand hand painting anything is something of the past. But one important thing happened 6 months ago. For the first time in 12 years of working in and around Dublin I found a job close to home!!! Then about 14 weeks ago I saw this: https://www.warhammer40000conquest.com/ It's a weekly magazine and it's like dipping your toes back into the hobby..... Well I broke down and subscribed! After weeks of reading these, looking at peoples YouTube videos on how to paint stuff I've being collecting the miniatures that come free with the magazine. I'm now obsessed with them as much as I was when I was kid in my family home and first opened and played Space Crusade. Last month I was cleaning the shed to find my old paints and in the storage box I found my old Guyver resin kits... the same ones waiting 20 odd years for me to paint!!! So here I am now. I've yet to paint any of my new miniatures because I don't want to destroy them being the first things I paint in 20+ years. So I've being buying old 40K armies from ebay... The thought being well if I ruin them I've no personal attachment to them being 25 year olds I've owned for AGES or brand new ones I got with the mag. This though now as made me learn a few things from lessons I've learned in the past myself and between the research I've being doing I've decided a few things. 1) I've effectively 2 armies building at the moment just as a result of buying Conguest on a Sub. As you see above my old army is Ultra Marines so the Primaris Marine army that comes with the mag will be them and the 2nd being Death Guards means they will be the Chaos army I collect. I've limited space so unlike Epic 40k which you could fit multiple armies on a single shelf this means I'm best off focusing on them. 2) I want to redo my old marines. I've realised as I looked at Youtube vids and read up on it that back in the day I did extremely well for a kid with no Internet (it wasn't a thing the normal kid had access too in 1990! nor was a decent Windows PC!). So I will be modrenising my old Space Marines, which is another reason I bought some old armies from ebay, they will be the test for removing old paint etc with mentholated spirits and the like. While I do look at them as something great for the past I don't want them looking stupidly out of place beside my new Primaris Marines. This includes some minor conversions etc. 3) I'm not collecting these 2 armies to play any game. I'm doing this to learn once again to paint miniatures, have some fun and not just relearn some lost skills but to improve on them and go on from there. This is kinda a great feeling as it means I don't have to restrict my collection in anyway to a points system etc so if I want 7 Dreadnoughts I'll get them on the display!!! Also I think it's finally time to get close finishing my old resin Guyver kits. Which isn't just a case of me wanting to paint them I want to convert them into somethings special in the future.....

    Website Update Thread

    Yesterday I managed to finish all the data files. Working on the Calendar now and then the rest of the site. Hopefully should be finished with WG.com this side of the year Still got to fix up the Guyver Fan-Archive. It has a fair amount of of broken images and links.
  10. OP NOTE: For those that are not aware. Japan-Legend.com is now managed by the WarriorGuyver.com staff. Our goal isn't to see Japan Legend fade away which it could have easily done last year but to continue keeping it up and running, host it and to fix issues with the site and to see it grow. This thread is for Japan Legend members to basically see what it is we're currently working on. It's not always going to be Japan Legend, but you'll know from looking here what it is that is currently confusing the hell out of me or keeping others busy. http://warriorguyver.com/creditsfaq/update_full.htmIs the URL where all website updates will be mentioned. 12/01/2016 I've being really busy the last month getting two of the web pages in WarriorGuyver.com fixed up and updated. Great War of the Guyvers has for a long time needed repair work as you couldn't read the fan-fictions wrote on it. Warrior Guyver Fan-Fiction had two menu systems for awhile and needed to be finally fixed up so it only had the one. Updating that amount of HTML files takes a VERY long time and has pretty much used up all the free time I've had lately. But it's done now and I'm happy with the end results. My goal now is to get Japan Legend's Wiki and the vault sections up and running properly and give it the focus it deserves. TheGuyver.NET will be updated as part of this. If anyone has any questions / suggestions or knows Wiki's inside and out and codes in SQL better than eating their breakfast and wants to help out this is the thread to do that in.

    New Chapter status?

    New Chapter status?

    Tomorrow is when the next Ace is due out. Monthy ritual repeats then. Edit: This months Ace is out but no new cover yet. Looking at a translation of the description no mention of Guyver.
  14. This is a question for the web developers out there or people who are interested in getting this site up and running. Basically what do we want it to look like. If you've a favorite info page what site would you like me to take for inspiration on how we should present Guyver data. Things to note though 1) The site is not just for manga, it is for all Guyver official stuff anything that has being published for made for fans by an official source. 2) It's not a forum (Japan-Legend is our forum now) so chats / posts comments etc are here not there. Nor do I intend on closing Japan Legend down to use TheGuyver.Net. This is the home of our forum now (including the one that used to be hosted on WarriorGuyver.com). 3) People who create content will be created to their forum account here in Japan-Legend. 4) Due to hacks in the past to the Wiki on Japan Legend access to theguyver.net will be extremely limited. 5) Any new template needs to be compatible with Lightbox (the gallery software you see at http://www.warriorguyver.com/gwotg/fan-art/ ). I've had to change a template in the past so that images loaded when you clicked them). Eventually as we get closing to the current TheGuyver.Net site being deleted and the new wordpress version being put up we'll be closer to deciding what we want as Guyver fans.
  15. NOTE: TheGuyver.Net in it's current form will be changing once the transfer to Wordpress is complete for WarriorGuyver.com. This forum is for people who would like to add content to TheGuyver.Net. This site in future will be the info page that used to exist in Japan-Legends Wiki combined with the old http://www.warriorguyver.com/gfa/theguyvernet/index.htm and the old Stars Website (this is one for the oldies out there). The forum has being enabled so that we can get the ball rolling. In future any content going up on the site will come from this section of the forum.

    Checkout this bad boy!

    Don't think so, it's also very large from what I remember so you'd need a very large display area for it.

    Guyver bonded to none humanoids?

    But the question is how effective would be an Out of Control T-Rex. The Creators planned to use us in a war, Guyvers as we now know them were simply meant to be the controllers of their space ships to bring their armies to war. (take this example with a pinch of salt as it's got more chance of attacking the Creators than the foe) So if you dropped an Out of Control T-Rex into a battle zone it wouldn't take long for the enemy to figure out that if they stay 50 KM from the creature (the max range of the head sensors) that the T-Rex would simply stop attacking them.

    Who else is as strong as a Guyver?

    Guyver 1 only struggled with a Gregole once, it was also only minutes after bonding for the first time. So it's questionable if it was even fully charged compared to how a Guyver is after being dormant in the boost dimension for awhile and then activated by a host (ref Sho's fight with the bats and Chaos Aptom).

    Guyver bonded to none humanoids?

    Here's an interesting fact. All life on Earth had to be destroyed because the genetic flaw that allowed the Guyver effect was present in all forms of life. But you've to ration that with what Matt said, we know a lot more about how the Guyver Unit works now to 20 years ago (thank you translators!!!!). The question would be how the balance would work. it's a known fact that humans are one of the few species that are truly self aware. By that we mean the brain we have has gone beyond just survival mode which most creatures have. E.g. a road cuts through the rain forest. Some animals will never cross that road. They'll never figure it out. You could argue there are other animals on Earth that would over come something like this. But the question would be without true self awareness would a Guyver Trex ever be not "Out of Control"?

    Website Update Thread

    Busy last few days. Great War of the Guyvers has being fully restored as to what it was before the change over to Wordpress. This also has a fully working Gallery section which is a nice upgrade to the way pictures used to work on the site. Note if you want to save pictures move the mouse to near the top of the picture when the mouse icon changes from a hand to a pointer. Rightclick and then you can save the picture. Along with that the Links section has also being fully restored and updated. There's still a lot of left to do. The ACTF Data files along with the other data files are still on going.

    New Chapter status?

    Welcome to the forum new guys . FYI those keeping keeping the following thread up to date with their collections When I get Guyver.Net up to date one of the things I want to do is to add a section for those that have great collections is to put these up on the site. I'll be working on that once the major update to WarriorGuyver.com is done. This thread is more for keeping track of the lack of Manga. But you're more than welcome to start a new thread if you fell it doesn't fit with the collections thread mentioned above if none of the current stuff matches what you want to chat about.

    Who else is as strong as a Guyver?

    This is why putting an exact science unto a fictional story isn't always a good thing. The art isn't a mistake it is the data file science doesn't support what Takaya had drawn and intended. In the end you've to leave the world of the Guyver to be it's own little sudo science existence where science fact and fiction mix a little. It's not just Guyver that does this, every comic / movie / story every written does the exact same thing unless it is based on historical fact.
