This year I was only in it for 3 things
- Imperial Treadhead Pron (including the new Imperial Guard Transport)
- To get my models onto some Forgeworld Gaming Tables (pics/vids + report when my laptop comes back from the shop...)
- Pick up my reserved Forgeworld order (to be discussed in future posts)
I didnt go mad with the pics this year, I had a little chat with a couple of the designers, namely Phil Stutcinskas and Darren Parrwood, about the design of Imperial Vehicles, the design Process of the models in general and Phil helped me with my weathering powder question:
"Q: What do you use to hold it on the models? A: White spirit, you can mix in a bit of varnish if you want"Onto the pics: I like the idea of the crassus, a mobile bunker for a platoon of men, my only concern was that my platoons tend to consist of 57 men, not the 25 this is built for... also if i had £80/90 to spend on it, i have a long list of other vehicles that would come 1st (thunderbolt, macharius heavy bolter, malcador defender, stormblade, possibly a gorgon...) so i'd have to come into a lot of money before i'd grab one of these armoured tortoises
the new eldar titan is just huge, even compared to the imperial ones.
Soon to come: The Lucky 88th take the helm of my blogging progress, and the nids get a lie down for a while.
