Warhammer Painting


#201

25 days later (Thanks - I assume - , GW) the Nids, Tau and Mahreeens have arrived. The ‘First Strike’ box is really heavy so I’ll do some pics of what you get in it - if it is as much as it feels from the weight it is worth the monies.

Oh yeah and the Hermes deliver guy threw the box over our 6 foot garden gate, the dick.

Another not so positive experience all around with Wayland but since both times the negatives have been the result of GWs sucky treatment of 3rd parties and delivery companies being fucking useless I really can’t chalk it up to being Wayland Games’ fault.

I might pick up my next boardgame from them instead of Fan Boy 3 or Amazon and see how I fair then.

SO MUCH PLASTIC CRACK TO NOT PAINT!

Found out what these are today from a post on a 40k FB group. Revell are repackaing old runs from 2nd, 3rd and 5th edition 40k releases that GW apparently had a cache of as well as producing new models using old moulds/casts with changes to make them ‘easy assemble’.

They’re going really quite cheap in bunch of different places with things like the 3rd edition landspeeder kit going for less than £10 on ebay with P&P. Some dude on the FB group I joined with @spoonlamp went and spent £30 and got something like 5 bikes, a termie and a squad of marines.

Interesting behaviour on GWs part.
