These look really impressive to me. I like that the paint jobs hark back to the original artwork and compliment the models perfectly.

The best 'eavy metal paint work in a while I think!

Seriously, its getting beyond a joke now


Yes. The other day i looked over all the armies, ran through a checklist of past armies, and said to a couple customers "well, with the rumors of a new IG codex, that pretty much clears the way for orks. Nothing else they can do unless they make up something brand new, or someone gets two new codices before orks get one."


....and lo!.....The Age of Sigmar came to an end when Saint Veetock and his hamster legions smote the false Sigmar and destroyed the bubbleverse and lead the true believers back to the Old World.

You're free to like or dislike as you see fit of course, but you do understand that the top heavy, slightly hunched aesthetic has been a feature of all Imperial Walkers since literally forever?

To make a kit that was tall and lithe simply wouldn't have worked.

If you're talking about Stormwall I agree. But not the other smaller warjacks. With the exception of the large models they've been doing lately I find the aesthetic of PP models to be far less appealing than 40k. Again, I would say I find the large PP kits more appealing than GWs, and I own 2 Wraithknights!

I also think the boys at GW HQ play and paint a lot more Warmahordes than we'd think. Not that they can admit those games even exist

The Leviathan and Knight are more interesting for their differences. They actually have proper legs, instead of waddling around like some kind of lizard.

Yes, I was talking about Stormwall (I had to go look it up because I didn't know the name). The only thing I don't like about it are the shoulder cannons but some conversion work would sort that out.

Only because of players being pedantic, it says 4++ save on one facing, yet says against ALL HITS, so you could argue it works against ST D ranged attacks. Now, I kow what it says about D in escalation but.... The words say all hits.



Except D ignores the save. You get the 4++ , but then D just ignores the save

Well according to google, the Trygon is only about 5.25", so the Knight is only 6 -7"tall.

Shorter than a Wraithknight.

For me it's more

Open box, get excited, glue together, feel remorse for gluing it together when I should have magnetised and kept in sections to make painting easier, push half finished project to one side (despite it is far more relevant to one of my armies than this,) begin painting, run out of steam or get painting paralysis because I can't decide on the colour of some tiny detail, stop painting anything for a few days/weeks while I "think about it," get new models,open box.....etc etc..
