40K · Warhammer 40k

Release Day

So, the brand new version of 40K was released today and it felt a bit like Christmas…

We headed down to Stronghold Games to pick up the goodies we had pre-ordered and spent a bit of time chatting to some friends.

The next port of call was Hull’s Angels Games Club where we had arranged to meet with friends for a mass cut and stick session, as well as some games. I spent the next hour or so looking at the pretty books and reading.

Knowing where to begin is always a bit of an issue when faced with a big pile of sprues so my friend and I decided to do the logical thing – we used the instructions… The rest of the day was spent chatting, listening to my very random playlist and fighting with super glue.

The models went together easily however and they look amazing – even the gross Death Guard are ‘nice’ looking miniatures. I am really looking forward to getting some paint on them in the not too distant future!

Needless to say we didn’t get any games in but we did have a great day. I have even included a picture of the Ork Big Gunz one of my friends, Matt, was converting from MDF templates and various bits he had managed to find.

Today will be more of the same, while battling the hot weather. We might even get to play something if were lucky!
