It actually started out (in my mind) as a couple of paragraph snapshot that I wanted to scribble up to be able to give an impression of what it would be like to witness the Legion of the Damned turning up to lend a hand. Well, six and a half pages later and it was finished. I guess I got a little carried away, but it was a lot of fun putting myself into the story and trying to picture the scene. I could have gone into waaaay more detail than I did, but I didn’t want to get too bogged down with specifics. I’m not a writer really, and just wanted it to be a bit of fun. I hope you all enjoy it.

Well, I finally finished my Seraphim squad for my Sisters army. I had one casualty while I was painting these, one of them fell over and the backpack pinged off. After an outburst of cursing it was taken care of, but this goes to show how unbalanced these minis are. Very top heavy. Take into account this was also on a flat surface. As anyone who has played against my sisters at Colins place will attest, they fall about all over the place as though the were drunk off their asses. I have noticed, since taking these pictures last night and uploading them this morning, that there are a couple of touch ups I need to do, but anyway, here they are:
And there we have it. As I had mentioned in previous posts, I hope that we SoB players won’t have to wait too much longer for some updates, and new minis. With the recent Blood Angels release, with the fast attack squad having some pretty sweet ‘feathered’ wings, could this be a pointer for what else is in store…? Plastics are definitely the way forward, its just unfortunate that some of us are being held back.

So I am heading home in a little under 4 weeks. I need the vacation! I made sure that I changed my initial departure date from the end of May to the beginning of May when I found out that my hometown heros Bolt Thrower we playing a frakkin’ gig in Birmingham with Benediction, Rotting Christ and others. To say that I am excited is the understatement of the century! I’m sure I will get time to go to Warhammer World while i’m there too. I can’t think about any of that now though, i’m seeing Bolt Thrower! Wooooooooorrrrrrrrrlllllld Eaaaaaaaateeeeerrrrr!
