Seems a fair few people have some hate for this Space Marine flyer, but personally I really like the boxy Space-Marines-make-an-Apache look it has. So I bought two (one is still boxed, but that's a different story) to add to the Sanguine Swords. Let's have a look at what I did to ruin this particularly nice bit of grey plastic:
Been a while, huh? Some of that is due to family problems, but mostly it's because I've been too busy doing actually hobby stuff to write about it. It's safe to say that I'm very happy with how Sixth Edition is working out so far, and it has shook the meta up enough to encourage new builds and new lists (despite Necrons supposedly being the top dog right now, I've been playing Space Marines for the additional choice their Codex brings). Everything old is new again.
What's Coming Up?
I've got 40k Doubles coming up in September, for which I need to paint only half a dozen models. This is a first in that I'm actually taking an army that's nearly complete, but I somehow still suspect I'll be painting like a daemon that last week before the event. I'm trying out the new Citadel paints properly for these models and so far it's coming out well.
I've also been expanding the Sanguine Swords with flyers which so far consists of two Storm Talons and a Storm Raven (used under the Grey Knight allies rules). The new Dark Vengeance set will help fill out the Tactical Squads, as I'm unhappy with what are now ten or eleven year old paint jobs and would love to redo those models.
The Necron army has embraced Sixth with gusto, with Necron Warriors returning to the fore and the Scythe kits being a huge boon. They're still odd when you're used to playing Marines, but they work very well. Compared to the suffering of pre-Codex fifth, it's nice to be able to use Necrons competitively again. My beloved Deathmarks are now worthwhile too, but join Tyranids in waiting for the spam to pop out the can.
Now if you'll excuse me, I really need to get back to painting...
Sixth edition hit yesterday and after some quick skimming (not giving it my full time until Monday night) it looks like it's going achieve most everything I want from it. I wasn't going to make a post at this point, but the amount of DOOOM posting I see again made me realise that I have to raise my voice, lest the signal get lost in the noise. You can't stop the signal.
YAY! I've been waiting for this box for a little while since I discovered it, and I was very happy when it arrived.
Firstly we have the box itself which is cute, colourful and pretty sturdy. It'll survive a few knocks, and is more stubborn than say, an Island of Blood box or similar. It's also packed to the brim with stuff.
I must say I love the art style of Super Dungeon Explore - one of the contributing reasons to getting the product was that the OH wanted to play too, and that's down to mostly the art style.
