GamesDay 2008 Photographs

I am off to GamesDay 2008 in Birmingham tomorrow. I am expecting (as per usual) to take a load of photographs. Not sure if I will be spending any money, but possibly…

Now if everything works, you should see photographs from GamesDay 2008 appear on this blog (tomorrow) as and when I take them using the wonders of modern internet and telephone technology.

Watch and see….

Forge World Ork Nob Bikers

Only yesterday on my blog I said:

Now if we could see more innovative Ork stuff and slightly less Imperial Guard I think I would be happier!

Well I suspect that Forge World may have been reading!!!

In their latest newsletter before GamesDay 2008 they have provided a sneak peek of some new Ork Nob bikers which will be available soon and they may even have a few at the show itself!

Looking very nice.

Though at three times the price of the plastic bikers (they are £52 for three), I am thinking slightly over-priced, or are they value for money?

Also am I the only one who doesn’t like the new plastic bike bases?

Hades Breaching Drill now available on pre-order

When you have a fortified position which you absolutely, resolutely need to get through, then choose the Hades Breaching Drill.

It does what it says on the tin!

The excellent new Death Korps of Krieg Hades Breaching Drill is now available to pre-order from Forge World. A few will be available on GamesDay 2008 in Birmingham and at only £26 I suspect they will go fast, very fast…

Here are a couple of photos to remind you what it’s like.

Hades Breaching Drill

Just the thing to take out that fortified Ork stronghold that I have (not) been building.

Really nice model, nice to see something different. Now if we could see more innovative Ork stuff and slightly less Imperial Guard I think I would be happier!

Space Marines on sale at UK GamesDay

Space Marine Drop Pod
According to the Games Workshop website, a variety of Space Marines stuff will be on sale at the UK GamesDay on the 14th September including the new Drop Pod.

Dropping from orbit, the brand new pre-release Space Marines will be in extremely limited supply. That said, we’ll be taking 2000 brand new plastic Drop Pods – an amazing 89-piece plastic kit – not to mention the all-new Thunderfire Cannon and the all-important Codex: Space Marines.

We’ll also be taking supplies of the new Sternguard and Vanguard Veterans, the mighty all-plastic Land Raider Redeemer / Crusader, as well as the many new Special Characters including Captain Sicarius of the Ultramarines and the Chapter Master of the Crimson Fists, Pedro Kantor.

Hmm tempted.
