I am most excited to see the new miniatures announced today. There are so many cool additions to the range, I had to do a post to enthuse about them. I’ll start with Space Marines, because they are my favourite!
Where do I even start with these? I love the blocky bikes, they just scream Space Marine in my mind. The shields are wicked – the skeleton on a shield is just so ‘extra’ it had to be done. The Judicar looks so mean. I can see a conversion into a Thousand Son’s Chronomancer in his future too. The Chaplain’s face is awesome and the option for having Melee Primaris Marines is just too cool! Also, that banner… Just wicked!
I shall certainly by adding these to my collection of Space Marines, but painting them red for Blood Angels instead.
Now, I never eally thought much of Necrons, but I feel that this has changed. These miniatures are every bit as cool and I will really have to think about how I am going to paint them myself.
I love the little scarab swarms, and it would be really cool if there were some spares to customise the other necron bases. The long spikey parts of the other miniatures are awesome and they look very stabby.
I can see myself learning more about them when they are released and doing some bits with them. Either way, I look forward to getting them on my painting table!
