More Cogs stuff today as one of the basic infantry units was released a few days ago, the Obstructors. This are as basic as it gets for my army, a 6pt shieldwall unit, when the better units come out these will probably not see masses of table time but for now they will be in most lists as they offer something ive not experienced with my new force so far... numbers!
More convergence stuff sits on the paint table, 3 more angels to give me the full 5 units allowed by Aurora's tier list, and 6 attunement servitors. These are the first of 4 types of spherical robots that will help buff up my forces so im glad they have come along quickly.
Carrier has arrived... those immortal words from the original StarCraft game that signalled your brand spanking new Protoss carrier had been built is the most apt phrase I can use to describe how good it is to get this beast ready for war:
Prime Axiom - Colossal Vector
This bad boy gets his first run out on Tuesday against my mate Paul's Cygnar, hopefully he'll bag a couple of swan jacks in the process haha
Nine months into the year and its time for a recap on the years painting progress:
Ive sold on most of my Thornfall Alliance army for hordes, i'd used them solidly for 3 years and was ready for a new challenge in the Convergence of Cyriss... there was no way I was spending £90+ on a colossal without some bonus income so the pigs had to go! Ive kept the newer style stuff I added this year with Midas's arrival so can still field a 25pts list if needed.
Ive kept the Ito up to date but not added to the Temple and Savage Wave forces, that's a job for next year in the run up to salute when a we run demos for GCT. I picked up the Silvermoon starter set the other day but that may end up coming as an xmas present from the kiddies.
I caved and added a lot of the Darklands Drunes via the kickstarter programme, this should arrive soon so that will be quite a task to get all 46 of them done but they are amazing models and i'd never afford them all at non kickstart prices :-(
All this frantic painting is to put me in the clear for the arrival of all my Wargods goodies, 72 models that will make up 2 complete 1000pt armies haha,
My paint count for the year now sits at 307, this is great progress but there are plenty more to go... its going to be an exciting close for to the year yeah!
Tor Gaming have launched a new website called Miniaturebids, it is a free to use auction and trading site for the buying and selling of our beloved toys!
This has come about in response to ebay declaring their intent to charge sellers a percentage of their postage fees... I can see why they are doing this to stop people charge either exorbitant postage for profits, or to get round paying ebay fees and charging say 0.99p+£50 postage for an item.
This does however hit honest sellers like myself in the pocket, and full time retailers will lose out big time over this. Tor's initiative is a great step but it needs our help to become widely used so spread the word on this!
