A lot happened this weekend that had nothing to do with the Golden Demon entry. I wanted to make a post about it before the hype within dies out and I realise that I have to return to the daily grind.
There are two things that have me all hyped up. One is the meeting of the Dave marines with the other folk from Twitter. It was a lot of fun meeting the people I speak to on a near daily basis face to face. All of them were lovely, interesting people who I had a common interest with. Whoever said I was no good at getting out and making friends clearly didn’t know what they were talking about.
I’m not posting pictures of the people but we did bring some miniatures, and I am happy to pop that here instead.
The other things I was hyped about was the Black Legion Herald. The fact that he was described to me as ‘Evil Neil Armstrong’ might have a bit to do with it. The fact that this fellow turns up on a planet, rams his spear into it and announces that in 80 days, his pals are going to turn up and claim the place means that Khayon might be out of a job. The miniature was stunning and I cannot wait to get him on the painting table and have him join the rest of my Black Legion force.
I also hope that this means his boss might be getting a new model in the near future – I dare not held my breath yet though.
There are a host of other things that I was excited about. Speed painting Bob, the new rule for narrative play where you get to spend a command point to make your forces good at something, the new Titan… the list goes on and I keep remembering new things too. I am sure there will be more posts in the future about this.
