More Dark Vengeance pictures, tons of Helbrute

Took a few more pics. If I didn't have to do some last minute cramming for a fantasy football draft in the morning I would be throwing these awesome cultists together.

Got my copies of Dark Vengeance

I picked up my two copies of the starter set. I popped it open, check out the pictures below.

Amazing finds at a local gaming flea market

I attended a local flea market that was primarily a board game centered event and I ended up with a ton of miniatures.  I was surprised, there were quite a few gems I was able to snag.

  • 1500 + points of Necrons with a tablewar case
  • A huge pile of Epic models, both space marine and orks.
  • A bag of OOP Dark Eldar for way cheap.
  • Some Chaos Renegades that look like first edition models.
  •  ...and the highlight, a Mark I land raider.  This is the second land raider of this variety I have, and just in time for the new chaos book.

Khador Conquest in Hand

When my Conquest showed up a few weeks ago I was very disappointed to find it was missing a shoulder piece, as I gotten two left shoulders and no right shoulder.  Privateer Press did replace the missing part, after a little over a week, I was able to put this guy together.

The model was a bit of a pain to get a pose I wanted, as you can't do a lot with how the feet are positioned.  The model is meant to look dynamic as if it's walking, which I can understand, as so many of their warjacks look like they are standing still.  It does make it difficult to build the model so it doesn't look like every other Conquest out there.  I did a bit of work to make it turn in the opposite direction, as if it is about to attack something mid stride.  It's different enough from the stock model I'm happy, though I really wish I could have done more.

Dropzone Commander in hand

Finally got my hands on the Dropzone Commander rulebook. Apparently the models got stuck in customs, but I was able to get my book.
