Hidden In Plain Sight? – Potential Plastic Vendetta Kit

03/15/2014 2 comments

GW has been increasingly putting subtle hints about future releases in their publications for some time now. Recent(ish) examples being the Wall of Martyrs defence lines in the Chaos Space Marine Codex and the Astra Militarum Tauros in the Tyranid Codex.

Following this, in this week’s White Dwarf we have these pictures.

Now this could be the current Forge World Vendetta upgrade kit for the existing Imperial Guard Valkyrie kit however if I recall, there was a rumour a while ago suggesting that the Vendetta option would be included in a re-released Valkyrie kit which would accompany the Astra Militarum Codex.

In any case, we’ll find out soon enough.

Wow, that took a bit longer than expected! This wasn’t really a tricky build since, mentioned earlier, the instructions were top notch. However the Power Flail had so many small fiddly parts I had to take things slowly.

Right now I’m waiting for the plastic glue to completely cure then, once I’ve picked up my wife, I’ll get the beastie undercoated.

Hellbrute Weekend – Part 2

It’s 16:23 and I’ve just finished assembling the main body of the Hellbrute. This is a simply amazing kit, amazingly detailed, extraordinarily complex with 26 pieces thus far used, but it goes together so easily. This is helped by a genuinely useful construction guide.

Here’s the progress so far.
