Helms Deep!

Adrian, Craig and myself from Ready-to-run-models in East Grinstead, bought this little beauty from ebay over the weekend. 

Its a 4'x4' table of the famous Helms deep featured in the Lord of the Rings -The Two Towers.

This table has fully hinged doors and flaps along with a moving gantry. Its all scaled perfectly for the Games Workshop LOtR range.

Here are some pics to show it off.

Little Howard says you shall not pass!!!

Ulthwe Update

Ok, its time time for a small update on my Ulthwe. I have finished the Guardian defender squad and have assembled the Storm Guardians. 

Ive yet to do the bases but i will do them when all the "core" troops are finished. 

I have also decided to up the army size to 1500pts and im hoping for a delivery of the rest of the models from ready-to-run-models today :)

Eldar Ulthwe

Ok I wanted to start a small army to play with at Ready-to-Run-Models in East Grinstead. There is a lot of choice from the Gamesworkshop 40K range, but I finally decided on Eldar.

Ever since the Eye of Terror campaine came out ive like the look of Ulthwe Eldar so I thought i would give it a go and do a 750pt army.

Here is my first few models.

Stormlord Crew

Im really happy with my stormlord but I think I need some crew for the heavy stubbers. So I've made two gunners for it.

They are made from mixing the Cadian and Jungle fighters Game Workshop figures.

I hope to be painting them tonight so I should have some pics up soon.

Stormlord Finished

Ive just finished the new stormlord model from Games Workshop and I must say im a little bit in love with it. The kit is amazing and went together like a dream. Its much better than the FW banblades and a lot more detailed.

Ive had a couple of emails from peeps who have read my blog and wanted images of the troop compartment so ive tried to include a few angles that GW have not shown yet.

I can't wait to get this down to Ready to Run models in East Grinstead and play some Apocalypse games.

Imperial Guard Video

Ive made a video of my Imperial Guard army and put it on Youtube. This is a first for me so im sure my next one will be better.

I got my new stormlord kit today so I can get my Guard army up to 3000 pts. I already have a baneblade at is a Forge World one. I must say that Games workshop have out done them selves and the kit is amazing with no less than 6 different tank options in the one box.

Ive gone for the stormlord as I love the idea of 30 st 6 ap 3 shots per turn!

Ive now finished building it, it took almost 4 hours as there are so many parts and its huge!

I will post pics of it when its painted. I hope to have it finished soon so I can get a huge apocalypse game at Ready to Run models in East Grinstead.
