Nope, that's it as far as we know. Next week I think is back to WFB End Times with a Khorne-themed few weeks. Archaon book, plastic Bloodthirster and Khorne Chosen/Elite unit.

The New Character kits are really nice.

I might pick up a new Shadowseer and Death Jester in the future if funds allow (or perhaps on my birthday list), but for now I've got the metal Shadowseer from the previous release to cover my initial "Way of heroes" detachment with my WIP DJ and Solitaire.
With the 2 new troupe boxes I have, the previous metal incarnations of the troupe set and a couple of converted venoms for star weavers, I can pick up a Voidweaver tomorrow at WHW and I'm pretty much good to go

[edit]
@Veskern :

I'm using Dark Lances (as I found 4 Random Kabalites with them in my Cupboard O' Warhammer) for the time being until I can think of a better way to convert my bit box stock of Shuriken cannons up.

Anyone see the Ghosts of the Webway bundle? It comes with 2 solitaires for some reason, is there a way you can use 2 that I don't know about?

The latest Blood Angels Strikeforce army box (new Terminators and Libby) went into preorder in the 1st or 2nd Thanquol week. I would not rule out an army box for Harlequins with a discount as yet. End Times V starts next Friday

problem lies with doing Death Jesters - how to bite it? What weapon from what pack to use? A bit of a same goes with Shadow Seers, but I guess some work with Spirit Seer model would do a nice effect.

And I am still planning to buy at least one of each type, these are just too pretty models to pass them by





My DJ at the moment (still very WIP, and awaiting Harlie parts) is using Dire Avengers arms with the gun's barrel extended using a High Elf lance (with the head cut off, obviously). I'd imagine any Shuriken Cannon barrel could be lopped off and placed on a DA Catapult.

My Shadowseer is a HE Mage with a gun, mask and hood added. The hood is GS, the mask is a Dire Avenger head cut down to just the flat faceplate. Ignore the base, it needs changing.

Spoiler:



ooooohhh - that Shadow Seer is looking lush!

Very nice stuff. I can't wait to get my Death Jester The sprue looks phenomenal.

Why on earth would they include 2 solitaires in the bundle? O.O

I'ma go ahead and quote myself from earlier in the thread here:

Dash2021 wrote: B) GW pretty obviously doesn't understand their own rule set enough to know how good they made the Shadowseer. Case in point for point B- “Faolchu’s Blade” formation exists. The 2 worst units in the codex in a formation together that gives a bonus to jinking.....with both units having blast based weaponry...


Sales and production teams don't really communicate in anyway. "Bundles" are a way to unload more product than the player would normally buy, that is their sole purpose. Think of how many junk units end up in these "bundles". The Game development department is incredibly sloppy with rules, and apparently the sales department never even bothers to read them.

If I had to hazard a guess, it's so that people could do conversions.

I was pleasantly surprise to find there were 3 full crew minis (not including the pilot) with the Star/Voidweaver kit

so you'll be able add a bit more variety to your Troupe with the spare(s)

I know that this is probably going to be a dead thread in news and rumors soon, but I had seen the question asked and I know some people were curious.

So here's the spare torso from the Troupe box with a set of scourge legs. I cut off some of the spiky bits. Additionally, all the dark eldar heads work great. Got him now with one of the blank mask heads from the wych sprue. Also, the wych legs would work great too. Both legs require a little bit of green stuffing to fill a gap. There are plenty of guns/swords/heads to complete the model.

Has anyone seen whether or not Enigmas of the Black Library are 1 per army or not?

Cool, so I only need to buy 2 troupe boxes then since the vehicles come with 3 crew. I could use them to beef out my numbers (along with the dark eldar legs) for a 3rd troupe easy.

Nice idea.

Well, it works for the LSS!

2 Weavers built empty and a Troupe Box gets you 2 Troupes and their transports for around £60 after discount isn't quite so unpalatable...

I feel the gunner and one of the riders aren't posed dynamic enough, so I am going to make them into mimes! They are going to be my maelstrom markers, so mimes are hidden all over the battlefield, laden with gathered Intel and stolen tech. If the enemy finds them, they revert to their disguise and give them assistance until the troupe arrives to retrieve them.

I need 3 transports and 1 heavy support, so I will keep at least 2 crew per vehicle (one for the heavy one) so thats a free troupe with one from each transport and 1-2 from the heavy support. Add to this the extra torso from the box set and you can potentially save a fair bit of cash.

Mixed with my standard troupes it will hardly be noticeable.

Anyone got the Harelquin painting guide yet? From what 'seen looks like a guide actually worth the coin (for a change).
