Although this old pic doesn't represent all my stealers I am starting to get close to the full Leviathan Dataslate numbers. I've 24 mixed Macragge and original Space Hulk stealers, 9 mixed tentacles and scything talons, the 'errant 11', the 10 original Space Hulk stealers gifted by my friend Tom, 12 from an ebay auction and the 8 Deathstorm gifing me 74 in total. Of course that means I have another 30 to paint and despite having progressed particularly well with the Spawn of Cryptus I am rather reminded that I hate painting Genestealers! Still, they're back which is GOOD NEWS!
I also picked up my silver Armies on Parade medal. I'm honestly really chuffed with it, although the other guys think I 'doth protest too much'.
One other thing I did discover is the new Dark Angels Dark Vengeance expansion set. I think I just assumed this was extra copies of the models inside the DV boxset so had dismissed it. It turns out to be pretty much everything I want for my Dark Angels [aside from a Ravenwing Darkshroud]. I wanted to do some Deathwing Knights and potetnially the Ravenwing Knights too. I thought the Nephilim Jet Fighter was pretty cool, though not all that good in the game. So it looks like a great deal. Fingers crossed I get some Christmas money and if my Google AdSense can mature [only £8 to go on the advert links] I'll pick up a Knight too and that should be it for 2015
I'm also attempting a trade on facebook to pick up some Fleshborer Hives so I can kit my Carnifex out. It seems like I may be getting the better deal as it's currently swapping for the Feeder Tendril heads in the DeathStorm box. I want them too, but the Fleshborer Hives are more important. I'll let you know how it goes.
So glad that the Genestealers found their way home. I hate losing things. Happy Holidays, Dave.ReplyDelete
Me too, it really stressed me out and was clawing away at what little motivation I had. It wasn't everything stopping me but a major downer. Great to have them back. Have a good one.Delete
Nephilims rock! Best and most fun unit in my army. Really tempted to get another.ReplyDelete
Have a good Christmas.
That's sold me then. Fingers crossed it won't be too long before I can pick this box up and then I can set about painting all the stuff I've got. The hobby season has been pretty slow going but I've still got three quarters of a year to go so I can make some ground up yet.Delete
All the best to you and yours.
So glad you found the gene stealers Dave! A nice happy ending! Hope you have a lovely holiday!ReplyDelete
Probably a lot of panic and sulking over nothing but I'm glad they're back too. Enjoy the festivities too.Delete
I knew they'd come back, wagging their little vestigial appendages behind them. I'm sure they sowed the seed of planetary destruction in their absence. There seem to be a lot more genestealers/broodlords around these days anyway.ReplyDelete
And plenty on ebay, I even see a whole sprue for just £8 with Free Postage! Now I just need for some of theeses DeathStorm boxes to sell so I can offload my own but not at the bargain basement prices this fire sale has caused.Delete
