So close

Posted in

I started the other day to clean up my game room to drag out my table and get the much needed sanding done on the plaster. That will allow me to move on to less time consuming aspects of the table. After cleaning everything off and ready to drag the table outside on the my lower deck I notice a pile of old lumber that I had not taken to the dump. So, I took it to the dump like I should have done in the fall. Upon my return the rain came was unable to get my board outside. I was so close.....

I was still in the hobby mood upon my return. I put on a podcast and finished cleaning the mold lines(I think I'm OCD when it comes to those damm mold lines they can't exist!) on my screamer killer fex. I debated on what to do next but decided to cut out the pieces to make 8 guants with devourers(devilguants) with toxin sacs. After putting the extra bits in my bits box it was full. Time to get a larger box.

Forgewold: its addictive and Codex Tyranid Playtest version


So after some unpleasant current events I have done nothing hobby related other than listen to hobby podcasts on airplanes and read some horus heresy books while on the road or in hotels. The weather is starting to get nice and I am itching for day off to get WIP table outside and finish up some messy grunt work.

I did order a while back some forgeworld models above and beyond what I needed. Forgeworld is just so addictive. Real drug addicts could probably last months on what I payed for forgeworld models. I only needed the wings from the forgeworld hive tyrant with venom cannon I bought. I sent the wings off with a couple other bits to have a converted winged hive tyrant done for Hive Fleet Erebus. Instead of only getting the hive tyrant, I justified getting a malanthrope (one of the best looking tyranids imho) a stonecrusher carnifex, a scythed hierodule, Imperial Armour: Apocalypse, and two sets=6pair of warrior wings. That just adds to number of unpainted tyranids and/or unassembled tyranids I now own. It must be around 6,000-7,000 points of unpainted and 1,000 points of that is assembled. That is just sad. Must work more!

There has been a tyranid codex playtest version floating around the webs. Most say its fake and most hate the direction it takes tyranids. I dont think its entirely fake based on I trust some of people that have spoken about it. So that aside, I think some of the changes are great while others are lackluster attempts. I am very happy about making our guants and hormaguants more worthwile. Well go find it and see for yourself. At least you could see what codex: tyranids streamlined might look like.

EDIT: Now to bite my tongue as Brimstone who once believed it to be real confirmed it as a fake so no need to discuss at all
