It’s truly the Summer of Flyers this season, guys. The Necrons are finally getting their Doom Scythe and Night Scythe kits; Codex: Space Marines is getting its very own flyer as well, represented by the Stormtalon; Orks are getting not one, not two but three sweet-looking Bommers , all of which come in the same kit. And just a few hours ago, Puppets War , the Polish-based miniatures company which has been churning out amazing looking models by the dozens of as of late, released their second “Orc” flying machine… The “Flying Coffin”- Orcoplane Set contains 1 complete “Flying Coffin – Orcoplane model which includes: 2 parts of Orcoplane main body, 2 wings, flight stabilizer, 2 very big engines, 6 bombs, 2 versions of cockpit, 2 wheels, hatch with 2 goblins playing CKM, pilot, little exhaust pipe and a barrel… The price is a little bit less than the GW fliers – $42.30/ 30.00€/£26.10. It’s definitely worth it! Man, what a great-looking flyer! The huuuuge engines are definitely a great addition and they just give so much character to the vehicle. It’s crazy. I think that Puppets War should definitely sell JUST the engines as a separate bundle, because people will definitely want to use them to convert/modify the GW Ork Bommers.
That’s right, ladies and gentleman’s ones, it is Da Plane by Puppets War . A model that I have been expecting for a while now and honestly it is just what I needed. But I’ll let the picture convince you first: ORC DA PLANE – $26.31 Set contains 1 complete Orc Da Plane model which includes:
My last post was about the Land Raider I received for Christmas a few days ago, my desire to turn it into a Land Raider Achilles and my frustration when I learned that Forge World was only selling a complete conversion kit of the model and not just the conversion parts. I e-mailed Forge World a few minutes ago and actually got a very quick response! Here’s what I asked: Q: Hello, there! I just received GW’s Land Raider kit for Christmas and quickly entered your website in order to purchase the Land Raider Achilles conversion kit. Unfortunately I found out that you guys only have a complete kit for the Land Raider Achilles which has the plastic Land Raider sprues and then all the resin conversion pieces needed for the conversion. Is it possible for me to order just the resin pieces for a different price or do I have to wait for a release of the conversion kit. More importantly, are you aware if a conversion kit is ever going to be released and if it might be coming out soon? A:
I’ll start the final Games Day coverage post with some extra pictures from the Monstrous Creature Converstion contest, simply because we all love big nasty things that go “RAAAAAWR”. Right? Squeekdor was a rat. He was a dragon-rat. Or maybe just a dragooon! Parasite of Mortrex, I presume? There. Now that they are out of the way.. Oh, I totally entered the Speed Demon painting competition and painted a Watermelon Space Marine. He was like.. green..
My oh my, Games Workshop. You keep on teasing me, you ol’ bean. First it was the release of the new Orcs and Goblins Army Book , then you announced the new Tomb Kings Army Book and now you actually release the models from the Dark Eldar book that people pretty much never, ever expected to see. Unleash the beasts ! You know, given the fact that for some unknown reason you’re still slacking on the release of my Fenrisian Wolves and Thunderwolf Cavalry models. But, I’ll cut you some slack, I see what you’re trying to accomplish here.
From the moment I had my first read of the new Beasts book, I knew I’d be fielding a Cygor pretty regularly. While it isn’t the close combat monster that the Ghorgon is, and doesn’t have the movement of the Jabbersclythe, it can mess up a magic phase pretty well, and more importantly to me, [...]
