The Shambling Horde 2: Shamble Harder

04/30/2020 1 comment

Long-suffering readers (hi, you two!) may remember that as part of my Fifty Day Nurgle Challenge back in 2018, I managed to paint up forty Poxwalkers. Since then I acquired three more sprues from Trenchmate Tim from his Conquest sub and over the past week I’ve slapped some paint on.

If you add in the six I painted back in 2017, that gives me enough for three full squads with four models to spare.  More than enough to make Grandfather pleased!

I’ll probably revist them at some point down the line, I love the idea of fielding over one hundred of these chaps 🙂

With these happy little critters I am very relieved to announce that the daemonic contingent for my Nurgle tournament army is completed 🙂

Nurglings 02

I utterly adore painting Nurglings, they’re definitely a go-to project when I need a quick pick-me-up.  I am certain that I’ll be painting many more of these chaps very soon.

You know, I’m not even remotely sorry for that.   Besides, I’ve just finished one of the most fun models I’ve ever had the privilege to paint, this chap!

With thanks to Trenchmate Tim who gave me this Beast of Nurgle for my birthday a while back 🙂

Now, onto something a bit musical…

40K Sixth Edition to arrive early July?

06/06/2012 2 comments

At the weekend I noticed that GW’s website is no longer offering the main 40K rulebook for sale. Since they usually discontinue items four weeks or so before their replacements arrive I’m going to throw my hat into the ring and predict a release date either Saturday 30th June or the following weekend, Saturday 7th July.

This would make a great deal of sense for a number of reasons.

  1. It’s more or less exactly two years to the day after the release of the 8th Edition of Warhammer Fantasy and given the success of that enterprise they may be hoping that warp lightening will strike twice.
  2. It’s close to the end of the school year for many countries and it would fiscally behove them to provide the Snotling Market with a ready-made excuse to spend their summer in store.
  3. It’s very close to many people’s (and parents) pay days so most will have £60 or so spare cash burning a rulebook-shaped whole in their pockets.
  4. It’s a smart thing for them to do from a corporate standpoint, their fiscal year started in June so this will bump up their Q1 and Q2 sales without cutting in to the inevitable peak in Q3 caused by The Hobbit and Christmas.

Or I could be completely off target, it wouldn’t be the first time!  Anyway, what do others thinks?  Feel free to comment in the usual way.
