New Project: Dark Angels

Hello on a slightly cooler sat afternoon! Two weeks ago I let slip that I had plans for a new 40K project, leading up to a full 1500 points army list. All the items I was waiting for have now arrived and work has begun, the new project is a 'contemporary' Dark Angels army. I have gone the way of the triple wing, including Deathwing Terminators, Ravenwing Bikers and of course standard Dark Angels marines. The inspiration to start this army actually came after playing Dawn Of War 2 with the DLC Dark Angel content - something I tend to do during dry periods of hobby.

Site News: back Into The Fray With More New Projects

And we are back! The last three weeks have been a bit of annoyance, with both Lorna and I coming down with seasonal flu. It is quite disheartening to see how nice the weather is outside but being  unable to enjoy it, and as a repercussion not much hobby has been done. Now that the flu has passed, we find we have a new enemy and again it is the nice weather! With it being so bright and hot, it has been too much of temptation to go out with the dog as opposed to sweating away at the paint table, but despite this I have somehow found myself able to squeeze in a new 40K project. As has been mentioned in previous posts, I have not found an army that I am comfortable with, both in terms of gaming and painting, there has been a real lack of variety that has caused me to lose steam with projects such as my Nurgle Daemons, Minotaur's Space Marines and Pre-Heresy Dark Angels. Part of the problem I feel is...I have seen it all before, 25 years painting the same products can get start to lose some of its allure.

However I feel I may have found the solution, sometimes a little impulse buying can be the start of something really good and this week I think I may have bought into something with a little longevity. I will share the details next week, as I have guests this afternoon; perhaps via a youtube video; but I am quite excited with the progress I have made so far in the last two days. I do have a 1500pts list written up and all the models are either here or are en route.

Looking forward to sharing more toy soldier news with you all soon.

New Warhammer Forge Releases

Forge World/Warhammer Forge have two new pre-orders up for Warhammer Fantasy. 

First is the lovely Empire Command set shown off at various conventions. This is a three figure set including champion, standard bearer and flagellant. While I would wish for an accompanying unit complete with face guards, I know that will never happen due to the focus on Horus Heresy, but one can dream can't they? The empire Command Set is available for pre-order now and is priced at £30.00 with a shipping date of the 26th July LINK

Second on the release schedule is the Dreadmaw, filling another monstrous unit option for the Monstrous Arcanum book. The Dreadmaw is up for pre-order now and has a shipping date of  the 26th July and is priced at £52.00 LINK
