I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....).
And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two).
But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever.
So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this:
Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called.
I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like."
Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw).
Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap).
So, this is what they look like when you open the box:
Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play.
But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW.
So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.
Dylan Blackzorn looked around at the engine room with an annoyed expression on his face. The raiders had caused a hell of a mess in there. A fair amount of damage, too from the looks of things. He signaled for the others with him to follow his lead; they needed to be sure there weren't any surprises waiting for them before they got to work bringing the various systems back online.
He flexed his fingers inside the energy glove on his left hand. In addition to being a great asset in the hand to hand combat they'd had to engage in with the raiders, it was also a powerful tool. With it, he'd be able to engage with the ship's engineering computer and ascertain what repairs were going to be necessary, as well as to dramatically shorten the time those repairs would take.
Time to get to it, he thought. The sooner they were out of this sector, the better.
He really does have a face, and it looks pretty decent in person....sigh.
I'll have to go back and try to make it stand out a little more.
Presenting Porker and Library Owl:-
A pair of Urkins who are part of the Dickensian faction of the game Twisted, they're also in my Steampunk People WIP thread.
They were a lot of fun to paint, which is good because I have quite a few more to do!
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
