"Limited time" Birthday Battle Brother

Posted on June 28th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Where limited is about a year.

This year’s anniversary model is unsurprisingly a Primaris Space Marine.

Not a bad looking model, this is a Primaris Captain. Worth getting if you’re not too enamoured with the other captain being released soon:

Not as special as the above Captain

These two are very similar, but I have to admit there’s something a little better about the Birthday Battle Brother.

The Birthday model will be available whenever your local shop has its opening day anniversary. It will effectively be available all year if you’re willing to travel for it.

Other than that, not much to say. With 8th Edition released, most table toppers are feverishly putting together models. enjoy the quiet time for now until the next big update. probably the Primaris Space Codex.

Until next time!

I’ve cracked on with these, patiently accepting that the next stage of highlighting would be roughly two models a night. It’s funny how the very thought of highlighting the green was preventing me even picking them up but at this moment in time offers …

What is better than a tank with many lasers? one that has clearly been used….a lot!! Still enjoying painting the Death Guard, although I have been avoiding painting that 20-man unit!

It’s no surprise to regular readers that I love a box set. So when Dark Imperium dropped I had to get it.  I’m so happy to be painting Ultramarines again.

Stingwing – Cockatrice of Chaos

Posted on June 28th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

My teenage Orc and Goblin army featured a Night Goblin shaman on Cockatrice.  I’ve sold the bulk of the army, but hung onto the Cockatrice out of sentimentality.  Bulking out my Frostgrave Chaos into a Dragon Rampant force demanded a fantastic monster, so this mythological bird resurrected itself from the ashes. The wings on my […]
