Recalcitrant Daze - Bits and Bobs


So it has been quiet in here again.

Alas hobby time has been limited due to work getting in the way, along with a couple of gigs and a day shooting people (my other, lesser, hobby). What free time I have had has been devoted to working my way through Extermination which I picked up as part of the Collectors Set at the FW Open Day...


It is lovely. The Mechanicum are calling me stronger with every book FW do.

However, fear not for I have touched a model...


...see?

Basically yes, I have done this entire post as an excuse to do what is a very weak joke.


So in an attempt to make this post at least half worthy of doing here is what is on the cards and what will hopefully be appearing on here soon(ish).

Heresy Weekender:

I shall be at the FW/BL Heresy Weekender again this year so expect lots of pictures after the event – and possibly after the first day if I can be bothered to sort pictures and get internet working in the hotel. That weekend will also be the next Meet Up between myself, Nife and Maelstrom so expect some picture of that as well.

Nurgle Deamons:

For that Meet Up I hope to get some new reinforcements for the Deamons built, these are...


Left to right we have a Decimator – which will be Nurglised somewhat, a lovely Plague Hulk and Kazyk the Befouled who will become a Herald on Palanquin.

Kazyk will become the fourth Herald I have in the army and you may have noticed not one of them is a Plaguebearer type figure. My reason for this is I don’t want the Heralds to be simply Daemons+, i.e. rank and file who have been raised above the others. I prefer the idea that all deamons are basically the same, each just a small part of the greater form that is Papa Nurgle. Instead my Heralds are all sort of mini-Deamon Princes. Former mortal champions of Nurgle who succumbed to his poxes or in some other way could no longer perform adequately in the mortal realm so were brought into the Plaguefathers realm to continue in his service.

Imperial Guard:

As mentioned in a post not long ago I am awaiting the new Guard Codex to arrive so that I can re-organise and sort out the Militia. It is on order from Wayland, so it’ll probably be here sometime before Winter. Along with a Hydra. In the meantime I keep wanting to get the Militia out and make a start, but can’t really do that without the book...and I need to get focused on the Daemons. Well as focused as I can be. Which isn’t much.

I am also eagerly waiting some bits from Col Gravis which will allow me to add some veterans and Rough Riders to the Militia.

Recalcitrant Daze - Having a bit of a clear out.

So I decided I needed more space for new things, so up on eBay are some of the things that I just don't need.

These include unbuilt Grot Tanks, unbuilt Ork Flakk Gun, my two painted Looted Wagons and the Looted Shadowsword.

Also up are the two latest Show Only Figures from Forge World which I picked up at the Open Day the other week.

The auctions can be found HERE.
