Does anyone know what will be in issues 20+?

Am wondering when the next interceptors will be.

Seems to be settling down nicely then to one for each side, one for paint and one for terrain per four issues.

happy enough with that, have needed some terrain for a while

Yeah I posted a page back the statistics, I think it’s been in that regular patternfor the last 3 deliveries and the next known one too.
So I think that will be the normal from now on.

Only thing is, when bigger kits come, presumably over two weeks or three for repulsor, how will it work.
My guess would be miss out the paint issue in that months set.
Or maybe the terrain even.
But always one thing for each side per delivery.

wondering if when you get the bigger stuff it will be a focused four issues around that kit, there are not as I see it that many big kits here, expect you get that kit over three or four issues as required, the 'spare' issue being paints or terrain

I think it’s three issues for the Repulsor, and two for the PBC. If the sprues are anything to go by..


I’d imagine three Repulsor with one Death Guard sprue in a month.

Then two PBC, one Primaris, and a fourth terrain sprue (or paints). Nicely fills out another months worth there.

That way it still follows the two armies slowly building up evenly-ish

Only issue is with the repulsor and pbc is that if you're buying from a shop you can't do anything until the next bit is released.

Fair to assume they'll stop shipping to stores by that stage?

Unlikely, they seem to be doing well and aren't going to miss selling a bunch

No reason that a multiple sprue kit cannot be sold instore , many partworks already are large multipart kits. They’ll do an issue or two with no instructions but more hobby/fluff then balance it with an issue with more instructions/painting and no fluff.

Well most part works involve a whole load of issues you can't do a lot with until something else arrives so not seeing a huge issue.

also expect for the Rhino for example the two big frames to be two issues, the smaller details one included with one of the other issues.

I don't think there are all that many multi frame kits here so its not a huge issue, you just have a couple of issues focussing more on background, scenarios etc or you get a paint or two and the magazines focus on adding that paint to existing kits.

Not fussed either way really, liking how this is building up.

Marines here adding nicely to the starter set lot I already had, the Death Guard are a new army for me here (had some Khorne & tzeetch already but no nurgle)

not familiar with the PBC and repulsive but IIRC if the rhino gives you the right frame first you can build the two side modules with one frame, the second issue is then the bodywork to join them

It’s no issue, this is designed for subscribers, so as long as we get it fully workable, then it’s fine.
The buying from a shop is just the bonus you can get your issues by.

But as mentioned that won’t stop really as in effect to Hachette it’s ‘no skin off their nose’ if those customers have to wait for bits.

I would assume with most of the kits that you would be able to build a fair amount of the model with just a single sprue, so the first issue would still have building instructions (maybe even painting if it's a model with interior detail), rather than just saving up all the sprues and putting all the building instructions in one issue.

As has been mentioned though, it's not unusual for part works to supply parts of a kit that aren't used for ages, especially as they like to put iconic parts in the first few issues regardless of whether that's sensible from a building perspective i.e. currently building the Back to the Future Delorean, the rear lights and bumper came in issue 1, but you don't actually fit them to the model till somewhere around issue 90!

They're easing people into the "keep these parts safe" model now. They sent the flight stands for the Inceptors with the issue that got a single Inceptor and told you to keep the rest safe. It surely won't be long until they decide to do it with either parts of sprues (such as the DI Death Guard models where the back of 2 of the models come with the Poxwalkers sprue), or whole sprues with vehicles etc.

Yep. Duplicate of the issue 3 models.

Last of the duplicates for Primaris.
(Well technically Dark Imperium has the same sprue twice but that’s the same when you buy the box).

Death Guard, maybe just the 6 Pox left duplicated? Or no?
(Trickier here, as you get the cultist 5 twice, and again DI has the Pox repeated anyway).

But getting there..

I got issue 2 again when I first subscribed, and Hachette seem to have accidentally sent me two issue 9s, so I'm already up to my bloody ears in generic monopose DGs.

Bits sellers for arm and head swaps, green stuff to cover up chest teeth and alternate DG paint schemes have been my good friends over the multiple easy build miniatures.

Yeah, the poxwalkers I'm just going to mix up the colours a little, I can't really be bothered working too hard on those and it feels like there's a million of them. One good thing I will say about them is that you can just mix up the garment colours and maybe emphasise the fleshy bits differently, and they'll both look distinct from each other at a glance and still make sense as a group.

I've gotten more hands-on with distinguishing the marines alright. The DG marines are also relatively forgiving for lazy chops and changes, thanks to all their spines, spikes, appendages and cracking plates.

One thing I've really come to appreciate as I churn these things out is how clever the mini design has gotten over the years at hiding parts' edges in flab folds, or seamlines in clothing/armour plates. Cunning stuff.

I already had a set of three. Then got the mag issues.
With the Plague Marine Kit, you can vary it nicely.

(Lack of quality photos, as I quickly took them with a flash, it’s so dark here.
But you get there idea)..

Little to none.
I’ve got lots of photos on my PC somewhere for a project log.
I had the shots of where I cut away on them.

The Blight Launcher Guy was the only one. Needed cutting back at gorget and side. To clip the new torso on.

I think the other ones I just green stuffed gaps


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Also. I heavily converted the three characters from DI (one to a terminator, one to a plague marine champion, and one just a booster guy).
So I’ll post a link to said blog once I get it started.

That way anyone getting Conquest who already has DI can get some ideas.

Pretty much everything was re used in other bits (in fact here you can see the Bell backpack from the that Blightbringer or whoever has it. It is too standout noticeable to use twice exactly same)..

I will do that too with the left overs of the multipart you can spice up the easybuild ones.

Good job there.

I've got a few conversions of the easy build ones in my Deathguard blog too if anybody wants some more inspiration

Has anyone else still not received their subscription delivery for issues 15, 16, 17 and 18?

it's showing on the hachette site that it was added to my account on the 28th of December. Maybe it's because I have the premium subscription and don't seem to see any posts or videos of anyone receiving the premium content yet.

I haven't. Mine have always turned up so far halfway through the month after most other people seem to, so no expecting anything fror up to another week yet

@MTCool:

As a rule my deliveries have turned up around 9/10 days after they have been added into the account, and I am based in the UK. So given you are overseas yours should probably be turning up any day soon? Best of luck.

I've found it's generally around the 14th it gets to me. Don't forget they will have been closed for part on Xmas and new year.

Looks like the money gets collected on the last Friday of a monthYou then have time to sort any errors before dispatch
