Weekend Update...

So I was looking forward to picking up the new Space Wolves codex but it appears that UPS screwed the pooch again and didn’t deliver the right box to the store. I did get to look at all the nice models that were released this weekend and I have to admit that once again I am impressed with Games Workshop’s latest offerings. The new dedicated Space Wolf sprue’s are amazing in that they give you a ton of options that will allow you to customize your models; very impressive work. My hope is that this is the start of a trend that will carry over to the other armies as future products are released. I was also please to hear that they will be releasing the Dark Angels ‘Indomitable Fortress’ model around Christmas time; can’t wait for this one as it looks fantastic in the early photos.

I did accomplish some modeling this weekend and I’ve got another 10 guardsmen ready to get their first coat of paint this week. I’m hoping to have my second batch that was started last week completed by this week. My painting goal for this month is to have 30 -35 infantry models table ready by the end of this month. I’m planning on taking a break next month by working on building and painting some of the vehicles that will be part of the army. I have purchased a Hellhound, Leman Russ Demolisher and a Tank Destroyer and they will allow me some flexibility when developing lists for gaming. The Hellhound and Demolisher will probably become standards for my list with the Tank Destroyer being the occasional wild card. We’ll see how these ideas pans out when I have a playable list later this year.
