40K News: New Blood Angels Pics

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. BoLS has new pic of the Stormraven and the new plastic Furioso/GK dread:

Stormraven Pic


The Stormraven is looking better in this pic and you can get a much better impression of the overall model size and shape from this view. This is going to be a great kit. Hopefully it will lend itself to kit-bashing a T-hawk out of 2 or so if GW never gets around to making a plastic one.

The Dreadnaught is looking fantastic! The force weapon is looking pretty beefy! Lots and lots of bits on this sprue!

Uncharted Seas: Orc Cruiser WIP

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Today I have a wip pic of an Orc cruiser for Uncharted Seas. The sail and deck still need some work. Overall, the hull is about where I want it to be.

Imperial Guard: Gorgon Project

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Here is a preview pic of the next conversion project I'm working on. I acquired a Baneblade in trade and decided to see if it would be possible to scratch build a decent Gorgon out of it. After some initial planning, I think I've got the design ideas where they need to be. I ordered a couple of quad-heavy stubber Sabre platforms from FW (my Gorgon is going to have a bit more firepower). The only part I haven't figured out yet is making the giant ramp. Not sure what to use for parts. Ideas are welcome. I'll be posting wip pics as work progresses. Comments welcome!

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. There are a couple of new ships up for preview on the Spartan Games website! Finally the Shroud Mages are getting some love with the Illuminator Frigate. The Ralgard also will see the release of a pretty intimidating heavy cruiser. I will definitely be adding a few units of these new frigates for my Shroud Mages.

View Comments
Slick here again. Spartan Games have now released Dystopian Wars! Having seen the minis in person now, I can say they look every bit as awesome as they do in the pics on their site.

News: Forgeworld Newsletter #257

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Forgeworld has released another newsletter and revealed a bit more about the mystery tank. Now we can see that it is on a similar chasis to the valdor tank. Just what type of gun it has remains to be seen. Perhaps it is a poison gas spraying tank of some sort using the hellstorm template! Your guesses are as good as mine.   

"Hi There,
            In this week’s Newsletter we have an exciting re-release of a perennial favourite from the Forge World range, as well as news of our Festive opening hours and some dates for your diary – the first of our 2011 show dates.

Blood Angels: Furioso Librarian Dreadnaught

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Today I have my finished Librarian Furioso Dreadnaught. I had an extra Furioso sitting around. Rather than add just another regular dreadnaught, I decided to try and paint up a Librarian dread after having a lot of success with them on the battlefield. It'll be interesting to see what sort of extra bits come with the plastic Furioso in February. I may have to revisit this one and add some more detail. Comments welcome!

Blood Angels: Death Company on foot

View Comments
Hello all, Slick here. Today I have a shot of an old-school Space Marine I found in the bitz box. I love the classic Space Marine range and in order to build up my footslogging Death Company, I decided to make him the first to get painted up. Eventually I will be able to field full 30-man units of DC on foot and with jump packs. This guy looks ready to chop up some heretics or xenos. Comments welcome!
