So the new copy of White Dwarf has just dropped through the door. And inside are 3 new flyers for 40k, The Ork Bommer, The Necron Doom/Nightscythe and The Space Marine Stormtalon.

Now don’t get me wrong I like all 3 kits, with the Ork Bommer being my favourite. The Doom/Nightscythe reminds me of the Cylon raider from Battlestar Galactica and the Stormtalon reminds me of an old GI Joe toy that i had many years ago when I was younger.

Out of the 3 kits the Ork Bommer will be added to my growing waaargh at some stage, the Storm talon may get added. But at the moment it is only codex chapters that can use it, so its no good with the Blood Angels or Space Wolves. And at the moment I have no plans in restarting my Necron army, well not yet………..

I have also picked up a Tyranid Tyrannofex/Tervigon from eBay for the small amount of  £22.00. The model is only part made (the main body has been glued together).

All in all since my last post I have done 0% painting but have cleaned up 5 Grey Hunters for my Space Wolves.

And for the next few weeks I will get nothing done as I’m off on holiday for the 1st time in years. When I return I shall be finshing off my Tyranids and starting on the Wolves of Russ………….

So I have been busy the past few weeks and my models have been on hold. Now with a good old day of rest I have had a chance to go through some of the space wolves that I have picked up from eBay.

Two of the eBay wins included brand new in blister Fine-cast models.

First up is Arjac Rockfist. over all the model is a near perfect casting, the thunder hammer was twisted and part of one of the feet has a small section missing over all I would give the casting a 9.5 out of 10.

Next up is Njal storm caller in terminator armour. Now this model is a perfect casting, the only problem is Njal’s rune staff which is slightly bent but with any luck it will be sorted out when the arms are attached to the body. This one gets a 10 out of 10.

I have also picked up Canis Wolfborn and a Forge world venerable dreadnought from ebay, and have also dug out all my old space wolves.

On another note i am have major problems with ParcelForce or should that be ParcelFarce, they claim to have delivered a parcel (containing more space wolves). But the website tells me they have left me a card, which must be invisible. Now they want £11.00 to redeliver on a Saturday or £5.50 to deliver to another address.

Well we have had the wettest April for some time, and April has flown by. My new paint set has had some use but not a great deal.
I have picked up the new imperial armour modelling master class book which while being a great read uses many of the old GW paint range. Meaning that many of the guides are of no use to many people as they will not know the names in the new range.
I have also picked up the fortress of redemption and started picking up space wolves from eBay. In preparation for re-starting my old army up, I’ve picked up two sets from eBay which will give me a solid force that only needs some armoured support to back it up. Add to that what I already have 3 oop dreadnoughts Ragnar,Njal,Ulrick,and Logan I will be able to make a decent force. This will be my summer project which will be started sometime in June. Now let’s check eBay to see what else I can find.…………
