Just a quick post to say I got an email from Total Wargamer saying they’re doing the Necron second wave with 25% off. Take a look . This is a bit premature of them since GW havent even announced them yet! Of course we all know they’re coming thanks to Beasts of War leaking White Dwarf again. Theres more details at Faeit212 . Sadly Matt sold his Necrons so I won’t be seeing them on a table near me anytime soon. Also I’m now away for 2 weeks. Hopefully I’ll get round to scheduling some stuff before I go but no promises.
I know that I want to include at least one Drop Pod in the Heresy-Era Thousand Sons army I’m slowly building, with the intent that it would carry Azhek Ahriman and his Red Sorcerer Coven into combat. Ideally I wanted to go with a Dreadclaw, but the one available from Forge World is a bit too Chaos-y for my purposes. That said, Old School Terminator over at Dark Future Games converted his own version using the standard plastic Drop Pod model and it works a treat! I essentially followed his instructions and the whole model went together as though it was designed to be built this way. In fact, it was actually EASIER to build it like this than the ‘real’ way to do it! I was a bit premature in priming it, in retrospect I should have added a bit more decoration than I did. No fear though, a couple extra bits and another quick hit of primer and we’ll be in business!
