Welcome back intrepid readers,
I finally received my package from GWS, it had the final batch of my paints I had to replace from my dropper bottle fiasco. I also purchased 2 Stern Guard weapon sets. BUT the box only contained 1 said set, so I got on the phone and contacted GWS customer service and a few minutes later, with an apology my missing set was on it's way to me!!! GWS has some amazing customer service.
On the hobby front I am scratch building a Dreadnought drop pod from 5mm foam board and 1mm plastic card stock and an old cereal box, I found the templates at Santa cruz warhammer, I wanted one for my dreadnought but didn't feel that Forge worlds price point was worth the cost of the Item. I will be posting pictures soon of it and what I have been up to hobby wise here in a bit.
On a side note I was so excited to see Forge world doing the Horus heresy books and models, that is till I went and looked at the prices they are asking for this stuff. 70 pound sterling for the book!!!! OMG!!! 70 pounds for a book and the models they have posted range from 70 pound sterling for 3 bikes to over 154 pound sterling for a super heavy that looks like an overgrown Predator!! Now don't get me wrong they look amazing, but the prices IMO don't justify for what you get. It's resin people Not gold bullion!!! Now don't get me wrong I will probably buy the books that contain Blood angels and word bearers because those I can relate to, but I was planning on getting them all. Not now, I have a good job, and i make decent money at my job but I can't justify these purchases to the Lord overseer (A.K.A=Wife). She wouldn't be a happy camper and I would most likely be sleeping in the dog house with my dog Kona!!!
I've also been playing some 6th edition at my FLGS. I've got to say I am having fun!! my battle record doesn't show it I'm 0-1-6 so far with my Flesh tearers, but I'm learning and having fun doing it so that's all that counts.
Till next time keep painting and gaming!!
