    Doesn't that make them Demigryph's?

    I was a Warhammer fantasy player (started on tomb-kings, went on to Brets and didn't look back) until the end-times and AoS (sorry but I hate what they have done to fantasy)
    I do also have WH40K with Dark Eldar being my mainstay army and I've dabbled with Orks, Sisters of Battle and Necrons at some point in the 10 years I've been doing playing.

    Despite it being over a year since I last asked the question, I still have not been able to decide between using Panzergrau or Berlin Brigade digital camo for my tanks.

    So, I took an inventory today of what I have to build, or finish building. It's... quite a bit...

    The plan is that I will be building this lot while I save for my house... given that every spare pound will be going in the house fund, I won't be going out much, so will have plenty of time to work on this lot...

    Despite saying "I'm not going to buy any more models until I've built what I've got".... I bought a load more, all Marines for the Raven Guard force...

    Another Shadowforce Solaq boxed set, two 5-man Scout Sniper Squads, one 5-man regular/close assault Scout Squad, three Land Speeder Storms, a regular Land Speeder (making a squadron of three with the two from the Solaq boxes), five Assault Terminators, five regular/gun Terminators, and an Edryc Setorax from Deathwatch Overkill (from one of the boxed set breakers on ebay)... And a bunch of bits for conversions... And another Plasma Obliterator...

    I think I have a serious problem... :confused:

    On a related note, I can't decide how to build up the Land Speeders: Tornadoes or Typhoons. Any input would be appreciated.

    This Raven Guard force is designed to get up close and personal with the enemy as fast as possible and deliver an overwhelmingly powerful blow, which would warrant close range fire support in the shape of assault cannon/multi melta combo Tornadoes, but Land Speeders are REALLY fragile, so is that a viable option?

    Trying to decide how to arm my "Celestia" Imperial Knight...

    If Celestia was a giant robot death machine, what would she be armed with?

    Some form of giant thermal cannon, for sure, but there is space for two other weapons as well.

    One is definitely going to be a missile pod, but I can't decide on the last one. Could be ranged, or could be close combat... I'm leaning towards close combat... massive chainsword or giant power fist?

    Or go Crusader: gatling gun or artillery cannon for range?

    I feel like it ought to be full ranged really, Celestia never really struck me as the getting stuck in type, but rather the overwhelming power sort.

    An OOP Lucius Pattern Warhound with Plasma Blastgun, Inferno Gun, and Vulcan Mega Bolter for 185? It would've been rude to pass it up...

    ...just need to find me a Lucius pattern Turbolaser Destructor arm now. The Mars ones don't fit.

    I might be selling my Battlefleet Gothic stuff, if anyone is interested. Massive Imperial Navy fleet, and other stuff. PM me if you want to know more.

    If anyone has any spare Rhino/Razorback/Predator/Whirlwind headlights, please PM me. I need a load of them.

    Also, I decided to sell the BFG in the end. :/

    It's been a while for me, haven't collected or played for a few years at least, but I'm gonna be getting back into it all soon. Been to Games Workshop today and had a look around. Can't decide if I wanna come back as my good old Word Bearers that I've had for years, or to come in with a new army... (Death Company is the one that's really catching my eye, as it goes.)

    Also had a look at Age of Sigmar, which looked good to me, never played the old Fantasy game, though I did want to. Really like the look of the Stormcast Eternals, they were really cool, but I am a man of Chaos... And I really like the look of Ogres and Skaven too... Too much choice. Haha! :confused:

    Besides that, anyone else looking forward to the upcoming Spacehulk: Deathwing video game?

    Didn't realise we had a thread for this.
    Want to get into the tabletop but lack the funds...
    Played a couple of the games and am reading the Ciaphas Cain books, though.

    The new Spacehulk game looks good but I'm afraid it may turn out to be less good than it could be...

    Space Hulk is a fantastic game, I've been after a box set for sinking now, I might have to splurge and pick one up soon.

    On the 40k front I'm still collecting ever more Dreadnoughts for the horde, made an Anvil Strike Force that will be 3 Vindicators and 7 Dreadnoughts in 1500pts.

    Started building up my Dark Eldar army for 7th ed after not having the 7E codex for ages :p
    My Scourge-spam tactics will remain, though, because heat lances make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
