40k Open Day 2017

So I was at the 40k Open Day Saturday and as always here are some of the pictures I took, plus a bit of info.

Specialist Games.

Blood Bowl:

Elf Union team out soon (as we've seen obviously).
We may see the next team in January before being released within a few months after that.
Nurgle team is "in production" which could mean many things, not being boxed up at the moment...though I hope it will be the one in the new year. Bloaters sound great.

Necromunda:

Orlocks are next (again we we've seen) with Gang War II coming along at the same time with rules for them.
By the end of next year we will have the big six gangs out.
Also coming - spring time was mentioned - we'll have Genestealer Cult, Chaos Cult and Bounty Hunter gangs in White Dwarf.
The Chaos gang is based around the Dark Vengeance cultists, but you can add things like a Spawn and a psyker. It was mentioned that the chaos gang are based around the idea of dissatisfied hivers and workers rebelling against the tyrants above and calling on the chaos gods to help them.

Pictures for Necromunda:

Blessings of the Plaguefather - Plague Hulk Redux 4

Nearing the end of this build now.

Still a bit more to do, namely:

  • Decide on front legs pose & attach - add additional texture as required.
  • Decide on and finish head of CC weapon, plus any texture to weapon itself.
  • Some minor clean up.
But for now here are the current set of pictures:


The four legs have been pinned in place with 2mm brass rod running through the body.






The one front claw is not fixed in place yet, that is the current idea of the pose, with the other front claw in place it'll be something like...


Finally some close up detail shots:

So Saturday I paid a visit to the IPMS Model World show.


As always I grabbed pictures of anything that grabbed my attention...some pictures aren't the best quality...
