GW new releases

Well I picked up Blood in the Badlands today. 4 days before the initial release.
The guy in my local GW stated that it wasn't marked to be delayed until Dec 3. Suckers!

Warhammer Black Dragon

Well, with the Storm of Magic out, there have been a load of new kits available.
I bit the bullet and bought the Blackdragon complete with Dark Elf General on top.
Built easily and primed black (obviously) excited to get this beast on the table.

GW Finecast

Let me preface this by saying that I quite enjoy GW and their product. Sometimes there are issues but for the most part I am a loyal fan.

I've been following the release of Finecast but hadn't yet gone around to the store.

I went to my local GW this afternoon and meandered around the store and noticed that all the metal blisters were gone.

Now I know GW Finecast resin products are going to replace the metal ones but where did all the metal go? And more importantly, I hope I didn't miss some sort of sale.

I looked at some of the new resin stuff. There was the Imperial Guard Commissar, who looked more like Han Solo frozen in carbonite with all the flash. Most of the others I looked at were pretty decent.

That and the price increase. I thought that part of the reasoning behind switching to resin was to avoid the rising metal costs. But not that the minis are resin, the details are better so they can charge even more?

I don't get it. Looks like I'm sticking to plastics then.

Well, not too much happening lately. Have most of my things packed up for the big move in June. Pretty excited as I will be getting a dedicated war gaming space.

Dark elves!

I painted a Dark Elf warrior with spear today!
I went to my local Games Workshop and had a tutorial to mass produce a large amount of Dark elves troops relatively quickly.

Pictures to follow.

Today I got my Goblin Hewer and 2 doomseekers.
No more slayers need to be purchased! Yay!
Now the painting process :(

I also picked up a Spanish Village from a local-ish gaming store.
