Thought they were new 40k marines with power weapons at first.

Wow, thanks very much! That's awesome. Did you include your address? I'll send you some prints as a thank you if you like.

This is just the beginning! Seriously, the miniatures GW are putting out now are absurdly good.

Also, this is a thing:

Yup. So if you drop your dice, better hope you're pretty flexible! There's a whole bunch of these rules, one of them is '+1 to wounds if you have a bigger beard than your opponent'

They're designed for fun, something silly to add to the game once you and your mates have had a few drinks. They're entirely optional, but I can assure you that staring at your opponent and intoning "WAR" at them in a deadly-serious voice as you roll the dice is hilarious.

Download the rules and have a look! It's a brilliant skirmish game that you can scale up as much as you want.

This morning, all the staff here at Games Workshop Towers were summoned to the reception bit where there used to be a great big Space Marine statue. It's been replaced by this:

which is certainly striking...

That's properly cool. What material is it made out of?

Also - is reception outside?!

It's under the big hammer thing, there. I should have said car park but I've been writing about plastic goblins all morning and am finding it hard to words good.

No idea what it's made of, I seriously hope it's been treated to withstand the horrid rains of Rottingham otherwise by December it'll be a mess and a half. Ever visited Warhammer World? it got rebuilt and reopened a couple of months ago, it's pretty cool now.

My pleasure. Get a picture up once it's assembled! Apologies for clipping a couple of bits off the sprue - I was going to build it but I've basically got a 1500pt Skitarii army already.

And you got Haribo for turning up! I was speaking with someone today about it.

What? I didn't get any Haribo!

Yeah, there's some cross people out there. I picked up my Age of Sigmar box at the weekend and I like it (I'm going to paint my Relictor like Papa Shango!), but then I was never into Fantasy especially. I get why it's pissed off a lot of people but (obviously) I hope a lot of people like it.

Dragoon built (very nice to put together) and undercoated with black. I'll get some pics taken when it's dry.

The more you look, the less impressive it gets. I'd like to see it moving.

I was quite surprised he could move at all.

There are some more picture of him here:

I've been working on a 20mm (1/72 for aero modellers) scale modern warfare set up to play with the boys. I've painted 20 or so modern Russian soldiers - 20mm is so much bloody smaller than the regular 28mm-plus scale GW stuff - fiddly little bastards. I'll post some pictures this weekend. I'm halfway through making some T-90 tanks, then I've got an Apache, a Hind, three Abrams, an M2 Bradley, two BMP-1s, a pair of Humvees and about 10 US soldiers to do... then some HO scale Western German buildings and a 4x4 foot terrain board to build. I'm also ordering some Russian Gaz jeep things. fun fun fun...

Ah Mr Chris I forgot to tell you that I haven't got a digital copy of the original Rogue Trader rulebook so I can't share it with you if you want it. Sorry about that!
