Knight Errant with Powerfist

This is one of a pair of Epic Knight Errants that i have had for ages. With the new 40k Imperial knights having come out I thought it was only right they get painted up.
The Knight house colour is the orignal krast household, that is aligned with Legio Metalica.
This post is my first from my phone so I hope it works.

The new Guard are up!


Codex: Astra Militarum


The New Imperial Guard are up for pre order on the GW website, it includes the normal and the fancy pants limited edition Codex.

The orders card deck,  ye right get a deck for each officer, we play Guard how many would we need to buy!

The Armoured fist is back and a bit of a saving from buying them separately.



Cadian Armoured Fist



The Hydra / Wyvern looks alright but i think my one looks better (post coming soon) and they really need optics or a radar on it, cum on you are tracking fast moving aircraft.

And last but not least the  Leman Russ Squadron, which like the Armoured fist saves you a bit of money from buying them separately and they throw in Commander Pask and a two crew guys.

I am glad to see the Guard are back, i look forward to seeing what has been done to it.

Guard Ogryns

Is it just me or does the new Guard Ogryns models look a lot like Sloth from the movie the Goonies?  Hey, you guys!



I like the look of the new Goony models, they are way better than the last lot.  My favourite are still the Rogue Trader era ones with the Second edition coming funnily in second.

The New Guard.




The Rumour mill is in full spin it is looking like pre order will start on March 22nd.

I am finding myself  really looking forward to the new Imperial guard Codex. I hate myself because of it, i so dislike GW. If the rumours are true plastic fantastic Ogryns, storm troopers/vets, big tank kit.
Dam you GW, Just when I thought I was out, THEY PULL ME BACK IN!

I dislike GW for the over priced Awesome Imperial Knight.    I really hope they don't rename and muck up the Guard Codex by doing all that stupid supplement crap.

Have i told you i really dislike GW? but because i have such a large investment of both time and money in my Guard army i am having trouble breaking away. This is going to be the real test, if the codex is good i will say ok and carry on playing Warhammer 40,000 if it is renamed and messed up that will be it for good… maybe…. Dam you GW.

The Knights are Here…...


The Knights are up on the GW website, i have to say they look great and i think they have done a really good job. The level of detail is really high, i like all four of the heads. It may sound a bit odd but i really like the back of them. Unlike a lot of other GW walkers this thing looks like it could actually stomp around the battlefield. If only the Chainsword was a bit longer.

So that's what i like out the way, on with what i dislike. The price is far too high, $170 Canadian dollars! are you shitting me! i could buy a BaneBlade for the same price, which has a lot more weapon options (don't get me started) and can be make into a great many different types of tanks.

I really was hopeful that GW wouldn't do there normal price trick, but they did. After there recent losses they could have sold so many more units if they had only put the price down. Not so high and out of the reach of most gamers. Plus $24 for an A4 size transfer sheet, Shame on you GW.


I am an Englishman living in Canada, for the most part i have stopped converting the price of things from the Canadian dollor back into pounds sterling. When it comes to GW stuff i still do.

The Knight costs:

85     Pounds
170   Canada dollar
140   US dollar
155   Australian Dollar

I just went on a currency  exchange site and

170.00 CAD = 92.0822 GBP

GW you are taking the Piss, nice model but fuck you i am not paying that much over the top for that kit. Even with the 20% discount retailers can offer that is still too high. Shame i was going to get one but not now.

Imperial Knights.


I am sure you have heard by now about the upcoming release from GW of Imperial Knights.
I have to say the Imperial Knights are one of my all time favourite models in the Epic range, i just like the idea of a Noble pilot commanding these war walkers into battle. I have seen some really good kit bash Knights in the past and i know of a few companies that make good 28mm sci fi walkers. But Deep down i always hoped that GW would one day make a 40k Knight, well that day is here and i have to say they have done a great job.

Don't get me wrong i dislike GW a lot for the direction the company has bean heading and the way they treat there customers, not to mention there unfair and bully boy style business practices.








































Credit where it's due, well done for making one hell of a nice looking model, that is very close to the original Epic version. Time will tell if they do a good job on the price?

Combiflamer

 photo IMAG0403_zps865981dd.jpg
So this is a nice and quick post about an easy way to do a combiflamer. I stole the idea from the cover of the Nick Kyme Salamanders book Firedrake (great trilogy) all you need is a bolter and a imperial guard flamer.
The picture is pretty self explanatory, just cut the barrel off the bolter and cut the flamer barrel to what ever length you think looks right and glue them together.
