Complete thread necromancy is in order.

After hardly playing for the past two years due to my models constantly falling apart I finally figured out the problem. A faulty batch of glue.....
Now here comes the unexpected twist, Games Workshop is going to completely replace all the affected models, AND PARTS, with the same or something of similar value. Including a 20 Euro gift card as an apology.

This means I'll be getting back in the hobby and starting a new army: A heavily converted (Dark) mechanicus horde using the Eldar rules.

Which will consist mostly of ripping of the amazing work of Guitarasmus:

Note the following are NOT my models.

Hot damn, that's good stuff.
I need to get new paints/glue/spraypaint because mine got lost in the move, but I don't feel like spending all that money

Lol, that's a lot of stuff! It's nice that they are gonna replace your stuff and not just ignore you.
Also, imperial knights are pretty cool.

About 15.5cm as you can see.

Lovely model. Pretty pose able if you don't look at the legs.
And yes I'm aware I put my arms on the wrong way, I like it better this way.

You put your arms the wrong way!

It looks pretty cool though, are you gonna fit it with magnets and stuff to have interchangeable weapons and stuff?

Yeah, it looks pretty beastly. Ready to take on some dreadknights :P

Fixed loadout. In smaller games he'll count as a wraithknight for my dark mech forces. In bigger games I might field him as an errant, the melta cannon is just too much fun.

My main enemies are marines, 'crons and 'nids, oh how they will feel his wrath.

PS here's a character and basic infantry model in progress.

Took me some time (more like a few years) but I finally got around to assembling my Fire Warrior Team :D

Here's the first of my Tau bros:

I'm still amused at how beautiful this little figures are and how easy it was to glue the antennae on the helmet, I really don't wanna eff' up the painting so that's probably gonna be on hold for a while, I'm gonna practice first on the extra arms that have pulse carbines lol.

I definately need to scrape better the parts where you cut it from the sprue, the stock and the sight of the rifle still have that noticeable texture, hopefuly after painting it won't be too noticeable.

EDIT:

Ah crap just noticed I didn't glue the big shoulder pad on :/ I'm definately gonna google if I should paint the arm first and then glue it on or just glue it right away.

EDIT:

I'm stupid :D
