    It's a beautiful set and whilst it may seem tempting to keep it that way, it's also insanity. It's such a nice boxed set that it deserves to be opened and actually played. The little egg-timer that comes with it adds such a nice sense of pressure to the Space Marine player!

    Will do man. I'm having fun keeping a steady hand right now (Yay, codine!) though, so if it's up for order this week I'll probably just mail order. Been told to take ten days off work, though.

    Maybe I get my Templars re-based now that I have 100 32mm bases sat here.

    Time to be one of 'those' guys again and wait outside for the store to open on Saturday. Should have pre-ordered but hey.

    Made a pretty good start on the Datasmith for the robot guys yesterday and I keep on finding new bits to paint on it.

    Is it too soon to say you'd give your left nut for it? [or the Warlord]...

    Ha - If I could have traded the traitor nut for a Warlord you better believe I would have!

    Incidentally, I saw Sigismund on ebay today for £80. I discovered I didn't want it THAT much.

    I'm gonna open it, and I'm gonna play it :)

    Was thinking of replicating the main game board tiles on a wood/plastic base, and building them up so the're 3D...

    When did reavers get nerfed? They used to be a lighter warlord (3 vs 4 hard points) but they were far bigger than the war hounds. They all look good but I'm taking the stance of Imperator or bust :)

    So, I finished the first Plasticard duplicate just a few minutes ago and it's looking pretty damn good, or at least I think so!

    Here are two side-by-side comparisons between it (with original tower) and the original piece. The rear section where the cardboard is at its narrowest is the weakest part of this and it seems to break in pretty much every copy of the damn thing. I will re-enforce the plasticard one as well as it has the greatest amount of warping when being handled. I'll just slap some 90° angles onto the underside to give it some rigidity.

    The tower might not be 100% centred, but I was marking it off a skewed piece, so I'll see what happens when I make the upper tier and the new tower for it later this week. Overall though, I'm happy with how it is.

    It's easy enough to cut and work and it fits oh-so-snugly!

    If the warlord sells well, then fw could make a Imperator, though if one was to be made it would likely just a be a show piece, though in the picture they should have left a space vacant to the left of the Warlord.

    Fantasy army/expansion/end times books are all to be removed soon, to make way for the new edition of fantasy, the first teaser trailer is up, but its pretty poor.
