More Zombie Terminators... I Mean Necrons

Hi all

Everything being well, this should pop up just about the time I'm settling onto a sun-lounger by the pool at my hotel in Italy with a view of Vesuvius :D  I'm off for a weeks well earned sun, sea and s-ruins (I'll finally be seeing Pompeii, and it kind of rhymes).

Meanwhile, what I've been up to this week is finishing off the Gauss effect on the majority of the rest of my 'crons, a couple of examples you can see here.  The Lord up there on the left is pretty much stock, but with a Gauss effect in his warscythe.

GW's new minis = very nice


I am absolutely stunned by this.  How cool is this new model from GW?  Got the new White Dwarf last night (at last, don't think I'll be keeping my subscription seeing as I can get WD earlier in shops now) and just can't stop turning back to the pages with the new Terrorgheist on it.  I will definitely be getting one of these, and somehow find a way I can include it into my Skaven army.  I'm thinking of perhaps magnetising the body so that I can remove it from the wings and mount it on a different base so it can be a Hell Pit Abomination.  Will have to see once I get my hands on it.

And then I saw this (first off on the website), and just look at that alternate face on the left, yep, you are now looking at my new Necron Lord.  The only conversion that I'll have to do is with the scythe to make it a Warscythe/Staff of Light, and I don't even think that'll be too challenging.

I'm really pretty excited about these new releases, and I'll have to admit that I'm perhaps more excited because there were no leaked pics, looking through WD was a real pleasure to see some genuinely new things.  The content even seems to be slightly improved, although I haven't got all the way through it, I'm hoping this signals the rumoured improvements to WD that I've heard about.  I'm just sad that they are shafting us subscribers, what really is the point if you can get your copy earlier in the shops?  I've even emailed them to ask what their reasoning is for this, yet to receive a reply though.

Shadowseer - all done

I've finished painting my Shadowseer for the FLGS painting competition.  I posted earlier on my choice for the colour scheme and posted up the first stages of the painting wholly intent on chronicling each stage of the painting process.  Alas, this didn't happen as the painting deadline was the 29th July, and by Wednesday night (27th) I was still at the stage that you can see to the left.  In the end I just had to paint as much as I could in the two evenings I had left (thank you wife!) and see what I could manage.
