|Air brakes deployed|
I couldn't figure out how to magnetise the carapace 'air brakes' so that they can be used both open and closed. I actually destroyed part of the body trying to make them 'retractable' and had to glue them shut to cover my mistake. Thats ok, I'll just get another one and try again.
|Air brakes retracted. Which looks best? I can't decide!|
I did muck around with the tentacles and the Sarlacc Pit maw at the top. I've finally found a use for my Dark Vengeance cultists. As food.
|Chewie! Gimme the gun! Hold still Lando...|
In fact was about to order my second one when I saw the new Venomthrope/Zoanthrope/Neurothrope kit in White Dwarf. Bugger me, its not even like the last sculpts were bad but these are almost too good to be true.
|This Kinder Surprise contains chilled monkey brains|
|New hats for everyone!|
|Fear the Scrotinator!|
What the hell is going on? First a new dual kit is released out of the blue, then our prayers are answered and Niddy drop pods launch a major offensive on my bank balance. White Dwarf starts printing useful content, then the Doom is resurrected along with freakishly wonderful Cthulhuthropes and now there is a full campaign book coming out with new Warlord traits and Formations. The Tyranids might even win some real battles in it (gasp!). The front cover is better than our codex and simply awesome. Could it be yet another new model? Dare I hope that the Broodlord has been resculpted? Shut up and take my money.
