They are coming! I feel them scratching inside my mind, scratching, screaming, running, so many – so, so many voices……………..

Posted: January 27, 2014 in Tyranids, Warhammer 40000

Over the weekend I went to my local gaming club, now its the first time I have been since before Christmas (it may have even been late November). But I was pleasantly surprised to find out we had 4 new members, 2 of them were die hard Warmachine/Hordes and Collectable Card Games players (I am not going back to buying WM/Hordes models, i’ve been their and done that. And I am not one to play CCG`s).

The other 2 were brothers who had gotten into Warhammer 40000 last year, and had been mainly playing in the local GW store. Now I have to admit I avoid the store like the plague, This is due to the fact that many moons ago I worked for GW (in my then local store) and the guy who runs this store is in fact one of the guys I used to work with. Don’t get me wrong he is a really nice guy and the store is always full, but I left GW way back in the summer of 1999, and he is still working their. And I am afraid that I know what I want when I go in to a store, I don’t need to be told that I need X, Y, Z, unit when all I need is a pot of paint! (this was one of the reasons I left).

Any way the brothers had brought with them their copy of Dark Vengeance boxed set, I went and pulled out a dusty plastic storage box containing my 40K  ruins and urban terrain. As they played they made comments about how good it was to play a game with proper terrain and not books and boxes as terrain. They offered me a few games but with all my 40k armies at home (and at the moment I am struggling to remember the rules, its been ages since I have played a game) I declined.

It did how ever give me the itch to start up playing 40k again, the other guys at the club can be very fickle when it comes to games. And 40k has not been played for sometime (I think the last game we played was the old Tyranid Attack board game back in 2012).

So on the way home I popped into my local supermarket to get some bits for home, and picked up a copy of White Dwarf……………..

All because on the front cover was a nice new Tyranid Harpy/Hive Crone model and inside was a whole host of new models, so I took the plunge and ordered the models from the internet with a 20% discount.

So I ordered.

Codex: Tyranids.


Ravenor Brood.

Harpy/Hive Crone.

Hive/Tyrant Guards.



Swarm boxed set (95 models For £105 less 20%).

and some army painter sprays………………… Alien Purple!
